Mars transits the sign of Sagittarius from February 7th, 2020 until March 22nd, 2020.
When Mars is strong by placement in the birth chart and by transit it denotes action, passion, ambition, physical strength, goal-directed energy, the power to carry through, courage, bravery, heroism, competitiveness and a fighting spirit.
This placement is especially favorable for Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Pisces rising signs who should be feeling some extra fire, energy, ambition, and competitiveness during this transit.
Mars is weak in degrees until February 14th, 2020. The military, police, surgeons, athletes, realtors, executives, engineers, construction workers and firefighters should get extra rest.
Remedies for Mars: Mars is a benefic (good) planet for all rising signs except Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio. These rising signs should help men who are like brothers on Tuesday and listen to chants for Hanuman on Tuesdays. They should also avoid wearing burning red colors or red coral gemstones.
For all other rising signs it is safe and favorable to wear burning red colors, red coral, or the mystical pendant known as the kavach to strengthen Mars.
The following information provides an overview of the impact of Mars in Sagittarius for each rising sign (as per Vedic Astrology), and is not based on the Sun sign as used in Western Astrology.
