The Basics

Mars symbolizes our desires, our energy levels, and how we take action. If your Mars is in Virgo, you have an analytical and detail-oriented approach to life. You are practical, efficient, and strive for perfection in everything you do. You have a methodical and disciplined approach to achieving your goals, and are highly precise in your work. You are health-conscious and tend to be reserved and humble in your demeanor.

You may be critical of yourself and others, with high standards for excellence that can sometimes border on perfectionism. You have a sharp eye for detail and can spot flaws and inefficiencies in systems and processes. You enjoy solving problems and are highly organized, able to break down complex tasks into manageable steps.

Your Mars in Virgo placement makes you health-conscious and focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You are disciplined in your habits and routines, and tend to be reserved and humble in your demeanor. You may not be the most outgoing or expressive person, preferring instead to focus on your work and inner thoughts.

You are helpful and enjoy serving others in practical ways, often using your analytical and problem-solving skills to assist others. However, you can sometimes be overly critical or nitpicky, which can create tension in your relationships.

*Look at your Cosmodyne scores to see whether your Mars is Harmonious or Discordant.

In our AI model, Mars is considered a Malefic - everyone starts out with a (discordant) negative score and harmony points are added from this base configuration if applicable.  It is perfectly normal to have a negative score.

(As we age, we learn to deal with all of our discordant placements, and hopefully, we evolve into more harmonious beings than our Natal charts suggest.)

Transits to your Mars, especially from the outer planets, can greatly affect its expression as well.

Two hearts intertwined


If you have Mars in Virgo, you approach relationships with a practical and analytical mindset. You value loyalty, reliability, and communication in your partnerships, and may struggle with expressing your emotions or affection. However, once you feel secure and trust your partner, you can be a dedicated and supportive lover.

In conflicts, you tend to be rational and level-headed, preferring to find solutions through communication and compromise rather than emotional outbursts or power struggles. It is important for you to be open to feedback and willing to work on yourself and your relationship to achieve greater harmony.
