With this position, personal desires are expressed carefully and there is little risk-taking. The person prefers to act with discretion and take action in a service-oriented way. Assertiveness and feeling empowered come through doing a job well. Anger arises when everything is not in order because Mars in the sign of Virgo will actively do things with thoroughness and precision. There is a tendency to over-work with this placement and then irritability and annoyance can rise to the surface.
Strength comes when they use this energy well without wasting time on pointless tasks. Although, they should try to focus on being helpful rather than critical. Bad service is another thing that gets on their nerves and they will take action by doing it themselves. Arguments at work may also be evident and the person can accuse others of not doing their job properly. At work, they’re very particular and will do things in the correct way, but they tend to be hyper-rational and they can be cutting in their assessments of others’ abilities and potential.
Mars in Virgo is not one to flap about in helplessness if something needs to be done. However, sometimes they don’t ask for the things much deserved. Moreover, they’re passionate about facts and may aggressively assert that they are right all the time. Still, they can help others straighten out their lives and show them how to take the appropriate action. The ability to do routines repetitively and with efficiency is also pronounced. Virgo tends to contain Mars’ energy, but they work hard for everything and will often need a sports outlet to release any nervous and high-strung energy.
