Mars in Virgo

Mars moves into Virgo this morning where it will stay for about the next six weeks, and where it faces a rather stressful journey as it squares Pluto on September 22 (an explosive aspect often associated with ruthless violence) and then squares Saturn on October 13 (an aspect of frustration and blocked initiatives).

When Mars is in Virgo, people focus on actions and favor ambitions that are efficient, industrious, methodical, practical, and "work-oriented." Their tactics and perspectives are meticulous, discriminating, and careful.

This energy is known for being detail-conscious, concerned with obtaining "useful results," and taking on loads of tedious, mundane work with little complaint. It can be concerned with accomplishing something of value in order to justify its existence.

There is also emphasis on attending to duty, meeting responsibilities with scrupulous care, and turning in a "job well done." There is further emphasis on activities and interests that deal with health care, nutrition, diet, exercise, and other aspects of a "physically proper" lifestyle.

Under stress, people are critical, intolerant, cynical, high-strung, impatient, and inconsistent. Their ambitions may be scattered, insincere, superficial, and impractical.

When Mars is in Virgo, your physical energy, your willingness to take action, and your desire to "make things happen" go to support specific areas of your life. Given the rather ominous stresses facing Mars in its transit through Virgo this year, these areas are also where you can expect increased trouble, conflict, and upset. Below is a quick and general sketch of just where this energy is now affecting your personal chart and its placements.

If you have your Sun, Moon, and / or Ascendant in the same sign in your Natal Chart -- for example, both Sun and Moon in Aries, or Moon and Ascendant in Scorpio, or all three in Pisces, there will be an redoubled (or tripled !!) emphasis in the areas of life described below.

If you have your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant in three different signs (the most usual arrangement), you will find all three areas of concern will be prominent in the action of your life over the next six weeks -- often in ways that combine, support, interfere with, or are otherwise connected to one another.

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Aries: work and service, interest in health issues

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Taurus: creative abilities, relationships with children and brain-children leisure activities, and things you love to do

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Gemini: private life, home and family

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Cancer: mind, communications, and the use of knowledge

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Leo: money and finance

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Virgo: personal presentation

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Libra: research, planning, artistic inspirations, mysticism seclusion, inner work and therapy, healing and restoration

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Scorpio: friends and professional colleagues, goals for the future humanitarian ideals, contributions to social evolution

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Sagittarius: career, public reputation, professional interests community standing, fame and honor

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Capricorn: intellectual expansion, law, religion philosophy, foreign perspectives, teaching

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Aquarius: death, permanent endings, joint assets self-improvement, and the property and abilities of other people

If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in Pisces: marriage, "other people," ... and all partnerships and close relationships
