Mars is the closest planet to Earth that is further away from the Sun, representing the first point of departure from the inner solar system. Mars’s cycles are rough and irregular, further off the ecliptic, jagged in his recurring geometry as his scarred red face crosses the sky. Accordingly, Mars is the planet of action, courage, conflict, passion, separations, divisions. The condition of Mars at the time of our birth says something about how we fight for what we want, our competitive spirit, our propensity for bravery, our experience with danger and risk.
Mars in Virgo is in a mutable earth sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, Mercury. This is someone whose strength comes from their preparation and strategy, the perfection of their skills through dedicated practice and calculated planning. They don’t get drawn into conflicts without a good reason or a plan. They can respond well in emergency situations with a Plan A, B and C. With Mars in Virgo, what they lack in overt displays of force, they make up for by setting traps, exploiting weaknesses, loopholes and technicalities. They may not make a big show of force, but they can be ruthless and efficient in combat.
This is especially true if you were born with Aries, Virgo or Scorpio rising. Whether you experience the better or worse significations of this position depends on whether you were born during the day or at night, and the kind of aspects it makes with the other planets.
