Mars is the planet of action, energy, and motivation, and spends 7 to 8 weeks in each sign (unless retrograde).
Last week, Mars changed signs from fun-loving, risk-taking Leo to detail-oriented, practical, service-oriented Virgo, where it will journey until November 12th.
With Mars in Virgo, we are more inclined to put our energy towards a project that takes care of our day-to-day, practical matters or a health issues. There is a greater potential to be “workaholic” now, and to have very little patience for flaws. This is a great time to engage in a physical outlet with the notion of improving health.
Creating order in our daily lives and knowing what’s coming next is easier for us now. We are better at organizing, planning on a short-term scale, and doing errands at this time. We may feel that we do things better than others right now; therefore we may not give others a chance to improve their skills or show us a different way of doing something.
As best as you can, keep the focus on yourself and watch out for impatient outbursts or for the need to be right at all cost. Be of service to others, and remember that perfection is not a goal, it is a journey. How can you move towards improving things in your life, rather than having things be perfect all the time?
If you have an Aries Sun-sign or Rising-sign, you are going to feel more focused on details and health issues. If you are a Virgo Sun-sign or Rising sign, you will feel quite energized and passionate for the next 6.5 weeks. Channeling this energy into physical exercise, a work or health project might be advisable.
