Mars in Virgo Benefits

Mars in Virgo has its hellish aspects, to be sure. But the Mars in Virgo benefits include diet genius and heightened self-discipline where required. People born with this placement can delineate Martian subjects such as lust, rage, and ambition with precision.  When Mars is in Virgo, anyone can access these fantastic characteristics.

The hellish aspects? Paranoia re punctuation, pronunciation, and nuances of text messages and insomnia from lying awake in analysis mode. It is a very difficult Mars to switch off or even dial down. It’s Virgo Vision cranked up into over-drive. You have to remind it that sleep or even phases of not thinking non-stop are actually productive.

If you do not have this as a natal placement, Mars in Virgo benefits are only available once every two years for approximately six weeks. Schedule this phase way the hell up. It’s fantastic for micro-admin and details mastery. Ideally, do not book a holiday during this Mars time. Unless, of course, it is a health retreat or a venture that involves learning a new skill. You’ll achieve brilliant results.

Mars approaching natal Pluto in Virgo, then. Will crunkle over Lilith in Virgo first. Both Oppose Sun. This will be a Mars square Mars transit. Wondering if a fifth square by transit will neutralise the four squares to Mars already in chart. Or the t-squares. Am already a little remorseful at being a dingaling clumsy Sagittarius Rising, unless i can really sharpen that arrow. Feeling every flawed action keenly, but very much in the practical. And only my own just now, not so interested in others’ weak spots, as i had been recently. However, I’m a bit fast when wielding… Read more »

I don’t have Mars in Virgo (it’s in Capricorn), but I do have Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto in Virgo (notice the use of the Oxford comma) plus three planets in the 6th house.

The photo above hits like a tuning fork on my Virgo sensibilities. I love the calm volupté of the knife on the napkin, the muted palette, the healthy foods, the textures…

Haha, I have Mars in Virgo in a Virgo Stellium. Decided to go sober (no alcohol, caffeine, hard drugs, plant medicine ok) on August 7, with the Full Moon in Aquarius, it’s been excellent for me. This past Full Moon in Pisces, my Wealth Wallet arrived and I’m leaving behind outdated attitudes regarding money, abundance, and self-worth (6H Chiron in Taurus). Tapering off my low thyroid medication and started an adrenal fatigue diet…gave up grains, gluten, and high sugar fruits. I’m obsessed with making lemon berry gummies with grass-fed gelatin. Medibles with CBD just might become my new side gig!… Read more »

The pilling on her top is driving me bonkers – how’s that for Mars in Virgo, LOL? The rest of the photo is so aesthetically pleasing from a tactile perspective, though – I want to touch ALL the things! Perhaps that’s why the shirt is like a record scratch for me – I understand the intent to show texture, but would have picked a different fabric; perhaps something with a silky, satiny feel….

September 12, 2017 7:44 am

I took a closer look at this too, and I think that its texture is a consequence of the nubbly yarn (e.g. hand-spun or made with that effect), such as linen/flax or raw silk. Also based on the “unbleached” tone of the thing. Unbleached handspun linen tunic top is rather old school Virgo maiden I hear, but then again I don’t know one Virgo who’d be able to cope with the slightly-too-close-to-nature surface texture and low-intervention hue? Maybe I am wrong tho. I only know Urban Virgos after all (for whom the scent of chlorine bleach is an aphrodisiac I… Read more »

napkins make good plates though. straight in the wash, and more crumb/drip catching surface area, easier to eat if on e.g. couch, they don’t break, look cute, throw in washing machine when dirty, can shake crumbs out more easily… list goes on 🙂

I have just got to get my merde together with a few issues, mostly career-wise, and I’ve been awake at night analysing/making lists and yes some berating myself also.

Mars is in Virgo yes but it’s kinda “OFF” for me still.
I’m Virgo rising but it’s a 8° virgo so neither Mars nor Mercury have still reached my first house and are still sitting in my 12th.
My physical energies are very low right now.
But I’ll write myself a note with this tips for when Mars reach my 1st house 🙂

Yes! Self discipline is very important and works in mysterious ways… E.g. I gave up coffee last year the exact day after I said ‘I’m never, ever giving this up’. I realised in a few short moments of saying it that I (a) had zero control over my coffee habit and (b) that wasn’t gonna fly. I quit the next day very easily and haven’t had coffee since. I’ve tasted a few but there’s no desperation. I kind of can’t believe I gave it up and how easy it was but then again the benefits have been great. My running… Read more »

All in your CYP 450 liver enzymes – which are linked to genes. There are heaps of such enzymes that process different drugs (caffeine – 1A2 mainly) and depending on your genes you can be a fast or slow metaboliser of 1A2, meaning that things likely coffee will either barely touch the sides, or hit you like a brick. Cigarettes induce 1A2, which is why smokers need more coffee for the same hit – they process it much faster.

All valid points, Pi. Also, the same Dr’s reporting on these studies likely don’t believe adrenal fatigue is a real thing. Ask any holistic health practitioner, though, and they will tell you coffee does tax the adrenal glands. Not to mention it leeches calcium out of your bones; particularly problematic if you’re a woman/have any predisposition toward osteoporosis. From a TCM perspective, coffee is no bueno if you have Yin Deficiency.
