After over eight months in Leo, Mars is in Virgo until July 29/30.
Obviously, i will be dealing with this properly in the Scopes but think this: Mars has been in a Fixed sign for ages. Now it is in Virgo – Mutable. So Mars is now more flexible and able to move faster. As anyone who knows actual Mars-in-Leo people knows, they can be slow to action. For fear of ego-erosion? Making sure they’re properly ready? Mars in Virgo is quick. Especially if there is a spelling mistake or some sloppy service. Eeek.
So Mars rules Aries, Scorps, men in general, assertion, ambition and libido. Mars in Virgo will contribute to the The Quickening. It’s all part of an increasing Aries vibe. Not only that. Mars is now chasing Saturn. So Mars AND Saturn in Virgo until late July mean a lot of ruthless efficiencies. Mars in Virgo is fantastic for getting stuff done, rad health regimes and admin overhauls. In fact, Mars is a fantastic escort for Saturn in his final weeks tromping through Virgo.
Where-ever you have got Virgo in your chart – major extra oomph and you take no merde. Your Leo area? Well, it calms down somewhat. And a lot of things hanging around unresolved since last October start to clarify. It’s also a fab time for tasks requiring intense focus and observational skills.
