There’s a warrior living inside each and every one of us. In astrology, that warrior is ruled by Mars. This is the planet of drive, combat, action, and aggression, highlighting the way we tap into our core instincts. And when the gladiator of our galaxy activates our will to win, nothing can stop us. If you’re wondering how Mars in Virgo will affect each zodiac sign, you’ve come to the right place.
Virgo is a highly intelligent, analytical, productive, and service-oriented zodiac sign. From the moment Mars enters Virgo on July 10, it will encourage us to go for extra credit and put in the additional effort. It will also urge you to indulge in as much information as you can, soaking up knowledge like a sponge. You will also feel more inspired to lend a helping hand to others, build something from the ground-up, and go out of your way to satisfy your partner in bed. After all, Mars rules over primal sexuality and Virgo is a very giving lover, as they always aim to please. As Mars immediately joins with the North Node in Taurus at exactly 0 degrees on July 11, it’s clear this transit is helping us tap into some of our deepest goals.
However, let’s not forget Mars is also a malefic planet that stirs the pot, encourages grind culture, and embraces conflict. And when Mars forms an opposition with Saturn retrograde in Pisces on July 20, you may feel forced to slow down, check in with your ego, and reassess the methods you’ve been employing. You’re learning what you’re willing—and not willing—to do. Luckily, a helping hand arrives when Mars forms a trine with Jupiter in Taurus on August 11, blessing us with enough positive reinforcement to keep us going.
Your energy and vitality may falter around August 22, as Mars will form an opposition with Neptune retrograde in Pisces, urging us to go inward and rejuvenate our immune systems. Just one day later, Mercury—Virgo’s planetary ruler—will station retrograde, causing communications to malfunction and papers to jam. Hang in there, as Mars will help you tap into your deepest reservoir of strength and resilience as it forms one last trine with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn on August 24.
Ready, set, go! Here’s how Mars in Virgo might affect you, according to your sun and/or rising sign:
