Warrior Mars in Critical Virgo

Get your head straight as the action planet spins through Virgo

It's business time! Action planet Mars enters practical and humble Virgo on September 5, 2017. On the surface, Mars and Virgo seem very different. Mars is direct, impulsive, fiery and impatient, while Virgo is careful, practical and detail-oriented. However, these two share a certain sharpness that can be combined to enhance productivity and higher levels of efficiency.

Neither Mars nor Virgo wants to waste time. Both understand the value of getting a job done. This period, then, can help us find out where to cut the fat in our work habits so that tasks are handled quickly, making time for the development of new skills. Taken to its extreme, however, this focus on results can manifest as ruthless detachment and a lack of concern for the human side of the equation.

The critical (Virgo) attack (Mars) is a negative potential for this period. It's easy to find fault and express oneself aggressively. If a situation is getting too tense, it may be that someone is frustrated by a lack of efficiency or they are feeling a loss of power. Patiently attacking problems in a systematic way can help restore harmony.

So whatever you happen to be doing in the coming weeks, expect to plan more and question more. Mars in Virgo is an excellent influence if you plan on spending the next month and a half writing a thesis, outlining a book or -- because of Virgo’s “how can I be of service?” mentality -- starting your own non-profit. If you were hoping for a more easygoing lifestyle, however, Mars in Virgo might drive you a little crazy!

Mars in Virgo forces you to be more responsible, more efficient with your time and more systematic overall. This is an excellent mood for getting your life together, taking care of outstanding personal business and creating a solid plan -- whether for a project, your career or even the next five years of your life! But Mars in Virgo is not forgiving of failure on any level.

Don’t sweat it! You can embrace what’s good about Mars in Virgo (efficiency, organization, wisdom) while going easy on yourself and others. Simply remind yourself to take a step back every now and then to look at the bigger picture, and remember to be flexible, which is definitely not Virgo’s strongest suit.
