With your natal Mars in Sagittarius, you are likely to be a bit restless, spontaneous, and sometimes even hasty in the way you approach life. It can be hard for you to stay in the same place, so you can often be found planning your next greatest adventure. That doesn’t necessarily mean physical travel, though it can include that too, but there is a sense to you where you can feel addicted to progress. Without momentum, you can feel stagnant, not truly alive.
When it comes to getting things done, you’re not one to have a plan, preferring instead to live in the moment and make decisions that just “feel right” to you at the time. You’re not stubborn, but rather easy-going and focus on the bigger picture. You’re quite adaptable, as your open-mindedness towards anything and everything means that you’re willing to try new ways of doing things. You’re not one to compromise on your greater vision, but the details are something that bore you.

With natal Mars in Sagittarius, anger becomes something that you need to let out, even if it isn’t related to the particular thing that made you angry in the first place.

Fights come and go, and you’re not one to have a grudge, quickly forgetting your anger once you feel you’ve adequately expressed your point of view.
