Good enough won't cut it anymore.
Mars will move into Virgo on November 10th for an unusually long stay. Until July 3rd, to be exact (due to Mars moving backwards, or retrograding, from January to April).
Think: work to make things perfect, focused energy, getting humble, getting healthy, getting it together.
The fanfare that accompanied Mars in Leo will be finished. Those that are able to set their egos aside and do what needs doing will come out ahead. Note that this does not mean becoming a martyr. Sacrifice? Yes. Self-abuse? No. Can you tell the difference?
For those with planets in Virgo this will be a momentous time. Goals, ambitions and the lust for self-improvement will be rampant. Virgos are not known for high self-esteem but this transit should provide a much needed boost. It can also boost the obsessive urge to nitpick, worry and criticize. For you Virgos out there....when the urge to pick situations/people apart becomes overwhelming (and it will) direct the energy into something else. Go for a run. Scrub the bathroom. Make lists. Do anything but give in to the urge to reduce your lover/friend/partner/self to a pile of picked over rubble.
Things to do while Mars is in Virgo (you'll need to figure out what area of your chart Virgo is in):
- Pick one part of your life (symbolized by the Virgo area of your chart) and figure out exactly what's not working then make a step-by-step plan to fix this.
- Pick one thing symbolized by the Virgo area of your chart and learn how to do it exceptionally well.
- Don't even consider settling for second best.
Tolerance for mistakes and half a**ed efforts will be low in general. Keep this in mind, especially at work.
