Warrior Mars is about to be humbled! The action planet is ruled by Fire, but Mars is about to get a dose of cool, practical Earth energy as it moves into Virgo from October 15 to December 7, 2013.
At first glance, Mars and Virgo don't have much in common. Mars is impulsive, impatient and blunt; Virgo is thoughtful, practical and prudent in every way. Yet what they do have in common is the drive and ability to get things done.
You can find out exactly how Mars powers you personally with a Mars Power Report, and rest assured that higher productivity and efficiency are among the benefits we'll see with Mars in Virgo.
This is because both Mars and Virgo hate to waste time -- even if it's for different reasons. Mars is simply in a hurry and Virgo is efficient, but when combined the bottom line is still fast and focused achievement. That makes Mars in Virgo a great time to plow thorough daunting tasks you've been putting off!
On the down side, Mars in Virgo can also be a time when people become more critical of one another and may even lash out. Virgo makes it easier to find fault with others, and Mars isn't afraid to say so -- and that's a dangerous combination!
Make sure you spend the next couple of months practicing patience and cutting people some slack. Instead, use this productive time to do positive things that require attention to detail. Balance your budget, plan for the future, learn new skills, job hunt, etc. There's no better time for taking care of personal business and getting your life in order!
