Life is a high-octane adventure for Mars in Sagittarius. If you catch his eye as he gallops past, he’ll slow down long enough to invite you along for the ride. Will you be able to keep up?
The Start of the Journey
If Mars in Sag is into you, he’ll bowl you over with his enthusiasm, inviting smile and irreverent sense of humor. He’ll manage to be assertive (as he insists that you accompany him on his latest adventure) without being creepy. If you demure, he’ll keep trying in his charmingly persistent way. But you’ll never get the sense that he’s desperate, because this guy usually has multiple options. He may be all over you, but at the same time, you’ll suspect that he’s having a laugh. Not at your expense (he’s not mean) but at life in general.
A first date will probably not be a quiet affair. She may invite you to join her and her friends at a concert, party, gallery opening, all-night rave, whitewater rafting excursion or food festival. She has many interests, but the common theme will be something new and unusual that the two of you can discuss afterwards. She’ll want to know what you think, because she craves physical and mental experiences. She’s also got a thing about honesty. For all her charm, she’ll be quite blunt (even tactless). Part of her explorations involve pulling back the facade, and she’ll be curious to see how you respond when you’re exposed. She may push you (playfully) especially if she senses you’re holding back. Get ready for off-color jokes and borderline offensive comments, all delivered with her killer smile. No matter how “interesting” things get, Sag will be laughing. Will you? A sense of humor is essential if you want to be with this Mars sign; you don’t have to be the class clown, but you do have to appreciate the irony of everything. By the end of the first date, you’ll either want more, or you’ll be so uncomfortable and overwhelmed that you won’t know what to say. If you fall into the first camp, there will probably be a second date. And if she’s that into you she may want a second date, even if you are overwhelmed. She’ll get a kick out of seeing how uncomfortable she can make you.
Once you’ve grabbed Mars in Sagittarius’ interest (and you’ve proven yourself a worthy travelling companion) prepare yourself for some off-road adventures. Sex may or may not happen on the first date, but he won’t postpone it for long. Part of Mars in Sag’s quest for the truth involves exploring the wild world of intimacy. This is his attitude towards sex: he wants to have fun while pushing the limits. He’ll be playful and rambunctious. Forget about a long buildup or delicate romantic overtures. He will not be shy, at all. And he’ll have no sexual secrets. He’ll tell you whatever you want to know, because he wants everything out in the open. His goal is to achieve absolute honesty, and that involves exploring new physical and moral horizons. What is morality, anyway? Mars in Sagittarius understands right from wrong and often has high ethical standards. But he loathes repression or judgemental restrictions. If you’re easily offended, you’re probably not the partner for him.
[show_to accesslevel=’All-Access’]As your relationship with Mars in Sagittarius progresses, problems can arise regarding her boredom threshold. Routine is a libido killer for her. So is denial. She can be faithful, as long as you’re willing to keep exploring with her. But chasing that particular dragon can become exhausting, and the less evolved Mars in Sag may start to wander. Her test is finding ways of keeping life vibrant while in a monogamous relationship, if that’s what she really wants. She not be interested in monogamy, but she’ll probably let you know this upfront. The other issue is hypocrisy. For someone who values freedom and ethics, Mars in Sag can be surprisingly judgemental when you disagree with her version of what’s right. And, there’s always the friction between her urge for freedom versus her awareness of ethical behavior. Depending on how self-aware she is, she may successfully walk that tricky line, or not.
The quickest way to push Mars in Sagittarius out the door is attempting to turn him into someone he’s not. If you’re hoping that he’ll become a serious partner who will give up all his excesses, guess again. You saw what you were getting when you first hooked up with him, and he’s not going to change. His version of domesticity will involve you taking many things more seriously than he does. That’s fine, as long as you don’t direct a continuous stream of disappointment at him. While he may love a good argument as foreplay, corrosive resentment is a major turn-off. Part of living with Mars in Sag is accepting that you’ll have to be the responsible one in many areas. If you become angry, disillusioned or authoritarian, he may stick around for awhile. But eventually he’ll wander off. Don’t worry about him taking vengeance or holding a grudge; he’ll be too busy with his next adventure.[/show_to]
