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.
