Natal Mars in Sagittarius suggests a free-loving, optimistic, honest, energetic, ambitious, and confident personality. These natives enjoy a good competition, whether participating or watching, and are typically athletic and sportsmanlike. Sagittarius makes these people generous, philanthropic, and provident.

Sagittarius can expand too much, however; people with Mars in Sagittarius have their head in the clouds sometimes because they are so optimistic they feel invincible. They can be overconfident, overestimate their abilities, or brag too much. Many times these natives can be too blunt with their opinion. They will say what’s on their mind without worrying about the opinions of others.
Care should be taken if the natal Mars is afflicted, especially when travelling. This could also indicate a person who splurges their money or resources as soon as they obtain them. In relationships, this placement can signal infidelity in marriage and difficulty getting along with the spouse’s siblings. Another indication of this affliction is conflict with religious belief systems. Because their ego is deeply tied to their opinions and beliefs, anything that goes against them can feel like a personal attack.
If Mars is well aspected in the natal chart, it signals a beneficial marriage, business partnership, or through inheritance. It could suggest multiple consensual relationships and a protective/provident personality. These are the happy-go-lucky people who are highly motivated towards achieving their goals.
