Horoscope Mars in Virgo
Your energies are directed to system, or, in the negative manifestation, to no-system. “When it’s good it’s very very good, and when it’s bad, it’s horrid.” One way or another, your effort is related to the order of your life. You will be the most systematic, logical, orderly, precise person in the world. Or else you will live from hand to mouth, your rooms in disorder, in constant rebellion against putting things where they belong. To get anywhere with this position of Mars you must learn how to accept the details of life, to take them for granted, so as to release your excellent mental energies into progressive channels. Until you have put your house in order, there is no place for you in the outer world. Once you have achieved order, you must progress to the point where you take it for granted; because to spend all your time dusting and straightening up is as wasteful as to spend all your time looking for things. Master detail, forget it, and then let your cleverness – of which you have plenty! – go to work on more essential things. The danger of this position is narrowness of effort through inability to see the forest for the trees; its great virtue can be mastery of detail, and the ability to bring large ventures into being from small, sound beginnings.
You are a perfectionist and have high standards for your own work. You often feel that if you want something done right you must do it yourself, for others do not do as thorough a job as you do. Doing a task well is very important to you, and you may labor over minute details that others wouldn’t bother with. You strive for accuracy, efficiency, and precision, and you become very irritable when things are not done “right”.
On the other hand, you can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that you will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that your efforts simply won’t be good enough. You are usually modest and realistic in assessing what you can accomplish and, if anything, you underestimate yourself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if you do apply yourself diligently in some area, you gradually gain self-confidence as you master skills and develop expertise.
You conserve your energy and pace yourself so that you do not waste or diffuse your efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit your opportunities. In short, you may not aim high enough and settle for too little in life.
