Mars in Virgo: Six Weeks for Making Big Progress

Dear friends, 

Between the Venus Star Point on Wednesday, the Full Moon on Thursday, and the Mercury-Uranus square on Friday, this has been a very busy week in the heavens. But there’s another big event yet to come, when Mars enters Virgo for the next six weeks, in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Mars is of course the God of War. In astrology, he also rules men, work, and how we take action in the world. When Mars changes signs, these Mars-ruled matters change their mood. 

Virgo is the sign of HARD WORK. This Mars-in-Virgo season will encourage us all to take concrete and detail-oriented action towards creating what our hearts truly desire. Did you get some kind of revelation around the Venus Star Point? This is part two: look to Mars in Virgo, from this weekend till October 2nd, for instructions on how to get it done. 

His ingress takes place on Sunday, August 18th at 1:19 am Eastern US time. In the chart cast for Washington, DC (pictured below) Mars is clustered with the Sun, Venus, and Juno near the Immum Coeli, or IC, the Fourth House cusp and foundation of the chart.

Lucky for us, there’s a kind of cosmic “escalator” that lies along that central axis in any chart, which means that planets falling at the IC have the option of “climbing” up to the Midheaven, i.e. the Tenth House cusp. The beloved, intimate, creative projects that you’ve been nurturing internally . . . are finally ready to make their appearance in public. Do what you know to do, step by step.

The God of Action in early Virgo is approaching a harmonious trine to Uranus at 6 degrees Taurus. Uranus is on the Arabic Part of Friends. Because you gotta have friends! Hint: playing well with others is actually a part of the assignment. 

Saturn and Pluto and the South Node in this chart are parallel to the asteroid Eros. What we are creating with Mars is fueled by deep love. If you *didn’t* get a passion revelation on the Venus Star Point, look to be struck by Cupid’s arrows in the coming days. 

Neptune and the Moon are the two highest planets in the chart, floating together in Pisces, near the Midheaven in the Tenth House. The dream is there, shining, singing to you like a siren. It may appear out of reach, but it’s closer than you think. Climb towards it, one step at a time.

Big hugs, 

Sharing is wonderful!
