Mars In Virgo

Welcome to Mars in Virgo! As of August 18, 2019 the Red Planet remains on The Virgin’s turf for almost 7 weeks until it bows out on October 4th.  There’s a marked switch-up in the vibe with this energetic transition, and if you want to understand it better there is no scene in the history of cinema that describes this vibe more perfectly than the following clip:


“What was this drug? I couldn’t stay messy on it, I hadn’t had a cigarette in 6 hours, hadn’t eaten…so abstemious and tidy..? What was this; a drug for people who wanted to be more anal retentive? I wasn’t high, wasn’t wired; just clear – I knew what I needed to do and how to do it.”

LOL, no substances required; it’s just you on Mars in Virgo! 😆 So clean the bejezus out of everything, organize your life, nix the nicotine/caffeine/anything screwing with your health, and cut all the crap out of your diet – this energy is guerrilla nutrition at its finest, so fight back against lethargy and inertia with a kickass diet and exercise routine that motivates you to operate at peak health and efficiency!  Tidy up, streamline, and you’ll be off and running at max productivity in no time flat!

Venus In Virgo, Pictorially

Behold; the Garden Goddess!  The fruits of her (many!) labors lay lusciously upon the vine as she luxuriates in the gifts her own efficiency and productivity have begotten.  A Vestal Virgin’s pleasure she takes in a job well-done and in the financial independence she has as a result!

Sometimes, though, Venus in Virgo feels more like:

I’m rather fond of referring to this placement as “Cinderelly Venus” at times – Venus is located in the sign of her astrological Fall in Virgo, meaning this planet has a difficult time expressing herself in a manner that’s truest to her intrinsic nature. Rather than refined and elegant, she is relegated to mere “Serving Wench” status when in Virgo – the ball gown becomes an apron and the sparkling tiara naught but a humble kerchief.

Complicating this even further is the fact that Venus is currently palling around with malefic Mars; a further coarsening influence upon this genteel lady.  And once this conjunction w/ Mars perfects on 10/5 (Thursday), she’s also besieged by a square to restrictive Saturn. Translation: This is likely to be a tough week overall on the love & money fronts; both domains which Venus rules. Cease any carping, general fussbudgeting, and stinginess and instead invest considerable mental and physical energy into something you love doing – busy yourself in wholly immersive work and you won’t have time or energy to sweat petty stuff.  Other areas of particularly productive micro-focus can also include nutrition, exercise, health & wellness, and cleanliness – Venus in Virgo loves all these areas and its prolonged contact to Mars gives us the drive to do something about it!

Mars Enters Virgo
