Quick Notes on Mars In Astrology
Sagittarius' energy involves the expansion of ideas, assets, and lifestyles refined in the passion and discomfort of Scorpio, from which one distills a philosophy of life, a set of rules for living that deserve respect, hold promise of value to others, and merit offering as possible examples for everyone to consider.
Thus Sagittarius is associated with teaching, writing, lecturing, broadcasting, publishing, and codifying ideas from many different sources. It is often fascinated with "foreign" concepts ... and loves to find ways to use new knowledge in a seamless merger with what already exists, expanding the scope of information in an eclectic mix that is frequently both liberating and inventive.
