Red hot Mars, the warrior planet of assertive action and rising libidos stays in a single sign for just under two months, before charging forth to conquer its next new frontier.
Its planetary motion remains fighting forward the whole year long – Mars will not turn retrograde in 2019.
In Astrology (and in addition to what your personal natal chart tells…) the 4th rock from the Sun activates our driving force, our motivation and fighting styles. This doesn’t mean its pistols at dawn every time Mars in town, but it does mean you’ll be pushed to find new ways to dominate and get what you want, according to where in the skies, this fiery front-runner lies.
In this collective horoscope, Mars charges through the sign of Virgo, the sixth sign of the zodiac.
Under this sky, the collective energy is pragmatic, practical and focused on the details.
Cast your Critical Eye
Expect to feel a sharpened gaze, as under this transit we get a little bit critical and start looking for what needs to be fixed. Less comfortable with starting things from scratch, Mars in Virgo prefers to sort through what is, updating, improving and systemizing the life that already lies around. But it’s not all talk. As an earth sign (along with Taurus and Capricorn) Virgo is practical and hands-on, so coupled with the red-hot planet’s driven nature, this is time to make some real changes.
This astrological transit can feel tireless (as Virgo people will know only too well!) The search for idealism is real and you may find your inner perfectionist coming out to play, as the imperfect sticks out like a sore thumb and you just can’t resist getting in there to straighten up and streamline! But watch out for those inner self-critical tendencies also trying to join the party. It is very easy for the fearsome fighter instinct of planet Mars to turn inward in Virgo, resulting in some serious self-judgment.
Just like other mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces) Virgo energy is adaptable, so you’ll feel like you’re able to take on whatever life throws at you under this astrology. But working hard to dispel any pent-up, nervous energy (try exercise, massage or wild walks in nature) will help ground and sooth the fiery impulse.
Because Virgo’s such a wellness-focused sign, the addition of Mars energy can result in a preoccupation with health and fitness! So don’t be surprised if other people around you starts talking about their new exercise regime or diet plan! And if you’re in the mood for a little self-improvement (and let’s face it, under this astrological transit, it’s prime) then this could be the moment to commit.
