Yesterday, we looked at Mars in Earth Signs. Today, Mars in Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius is the inspiration for this post.
The Quality of Fire: Keeping the Flame Alive
Direct physical action and strong power of initiative are the favorite way of expression of a fiery Mars.
Passion, enthusiasm, high-energy are often used to describe Mars in Fire people. In this element, Mars is absolutely instinctual, a primal force focused on immediate results and instant gratification.
Honest and straightforward about their goals, they only employ enough strategy to achieve the necessary result. Thus, they have no fondness for mind games or psychological warfare to obtain what they want.
On the contrary, they tend to move quickly through their blockages using force and courage to win people to their side.
Most times, they just grind down the obstacles.
Mars in Aries an be defined by the typical Aries motto “I want it now!” even if they do not know what. Generally, everything and anything capable of sparking their enthusiasm, passion, and inspiration and get them moving.
Their greatest fear is not to be able to be “in action”, since this is the way they avow themselves. For them, nothing surpasses a competition or the challenge of engaging in a new activity.
Mars in Aries needs regular doses of friction to keep going. Without it, frustration mounts and blocks their inspiration. To rejuvenate their creative juices, they require a “sparring” partner, a competitor, or rival to exchange ideas, spur them into action.
Mars in Leo: These folks keep the flame burning by taking center stage and a leadership role. Think Madonna at the beginning of her career.
They assert themselves in a spontaneous, impulsive, and heroic child-like manner. To maintain their creativity flowing, a constant stream of success is necessary, no matter how small, so they can develop self-appreciation and not fall into an egotistic attitude.
Another way Mars in Leo ensures his own inspiration is by promoting others’ creativity.
When disparaged or putdown, their ideas often die. To overcome this obstacle, they need to grow from shiny and ephemeral to luminous and substance.
Some suggested creative activities would be to engage in a musical production with dancing, singing or any other activity where they find themselves in the spotlight. No stand-up role for Mars in Leo people: they have to shine.
To assert himself, Mars in Sagittarius needs to be on a “hero’s quest” fighting for a cause or goal bigger than he is.
His biggest creative obstacle is when his gets caught in aggrandizement and consumerism schemes in an attempt to foster a sense of world purpose.
Creatively, he is inspired by knowledge that broadens one’s perspective, mixed with a religious and philosophical view of life.
An international book signing tour, lectures, and conferences should do the trick for the Mars in Sagittarius people to kick-start their inspiration. In addition, any activity, which allows for daily contact with other cultures and lets them roam freely, will do wonders for keeping the creative flame alive.
