This is a great time to make a plan and to take charge in achieving your goals. It’s time to get to work. Figuring out strategies for success are well supported during this period. Step it up a notch if you aren’t at the place you want in your life, put your energy into it and make it materialize. This is an excellent time to work on business goals.
Virgo is all about daily routines, schedules and getting things organized and on time. If you are a procrastinator, signs will be clear reminding you to get your act together. If you are worried about tasks you need to get done, that worry will be motivation to push you to get to work.
Mars in Virgo can get those wheels turning in your mind, overtime. Interestingly enough, on the first morning that Mars is in Virgo I am finding that I can’t sleep and want a cappuccino to start my day.
Secretaries, journalists, writers, managers, doctors, nurses, athletes, mechanics, nutritionists and accountants may feel extra pressure to get all aspects of their professions in order during this period, which can take them to the next level in their business. If you are looking for a new career, this is the time to look into it further with an ambitious approach. Problem solving comes more naturally when Mars is in Virgo.
Mars is the ruler of Scorpio, and can be obsessive and emotionally driven with a strong dose of ego. And, with Virgo’s meticulous detail oriented view and perfectionism, obsessive compulsive behavior can be quite high with Mars in Virgo. Cleaning can become an obsession.
If you are someone that wants to have a fit, toned, body, you could over analyze your flaws and what needs to change to achieve your ideal and therefore overwork yourself at the gym with Mars in Virgo.
Since Virgos can be obsessive, critical, and tend to worry, Mars in Virgo can lead to nervous tension and impatience. Aggressive responses to people that are making mistakes or generally being clueless about basic common sense can be extra irritating. Bad drivers on the road can be extra annoying, and road rage can increase at this time.
You may also notice people will come across as more forthright than usual without holding back their harsh opinions during this period. Virgo likes facts and with a dose of Mars, direct words, if not fighting words, can put you in your place swiftly if you don’t have anything of substance to back up your own argument. Comedians can appreciate this placement as quick wit that is right on point can make the punchline that much more fierce, especially when dealing with hecklers.
If you are working on a project with someone that just doesn’t have the speed or accuracy to implement strategies or manifest progress at a faster pace it can create conflicts due to impatience. If you’re the sensitive type, someone judging your progress, quality of output and telling you to work harder and faster could make you feel inadequate. Extra effort may be required to satisfy other people’s expectations.
We could also see an uptick of people getting offended and defensive, with plenty of opinions and judgments in the media. Since the ruler of Virgo, Mercury is in Leo now, we can also see celebrities getting more aggressive with their points of view followed by more aggressive behavior.
