Mars in Virgo transit, 2023

Yet again, Mars is ready to switch in to Virgo sign on 18th Aug where it will remain till 3rd Oct. Let's see, what we can expect during this transit of Mars -

1. Mars will be in Virgo sign for next 45 days. It is ruled by Mercury. As Mars and Mercury are great enemies, Mars is not in good dignity in Virgo. Hence, this transit is one where lots of care and awareness is needed. Now, important thing is that Mars represents quick actions, so it becomes more necessary that we should remain aware of this transit and its results else later we may not get enough time to handle or manage things as events may unfold so quickly.

2. Mars represents our actions, efforts, aggression and courage etc. When it is in wrong dignity, it means that our actions, efforts, aggression and courage can go into wrong directions. We can be misguided or misdirected in our efforts during next 45 days.

3. As Virgo is sign of conflicts and Mars also represents fighting, it is necessary that we must remain aware to mitigate any such circumstances where we may end-up in having an unnecessary conflict.

4. As Virgo is ruled by Mercury which represents communications, there can be malefic impact of Mars on our communications which can bring conflicts and disputes for us. Conflicts can be with people related with the house where Virgo is falling in your chart. Like, an Aquarius ascendant person can have these conflicts or arguments with in-laws as Virgo falls in 8th house of in-laws.

5. Then Mars in bad dignity can also bring circumstances of accidents, surgeries or bloodshed especially if Virgo is one of Dushthana house or 4th house where Mars loses its directional strength too.

6. If transit of Mars is impacting your money-oriented houses (2nd or 11th) then it can also indicate that you may need to take extra care in safeguarding your money as you can get into situations where you may need to spend the money.

7. Mainly, people need to be careful against aggressive communications, accidents/injury and ill-directed actions.

8. Mars has 3 aspects and Mars is also creating few joint impacts with other planets through these aspects which are as follows -

a. Its 4th aspect is going to Sagittarius and we can see people getting into conflicts or dominance struggle over belief system. At the same time, this transit can be helpful for someone in their higher educational pursuits. This is also where Rahu-Jupiter are aspecting from Aries. This shows that lots of malefic energy is accumulating in Sagittarius sign. Again, this energy can either be utilized in being rigid or fundamentalist about our belief system or it can be utilized in higher education, religious studies and travelling etc.

b. 7th aspect is going to Pisces sign. This again indicates rigid views on matters of religion and spirituality of people. Other people can utilize same transit in spiritual pursuits and educational matters. It can be a great time for practicing Yoga or Meditation.

c. 8th aspect will go to Aries sign. This will make Aries sign important again and our focus will again be shifted to the house where Aries falls in our chart or to the things related with Aries in our lives. Rahu-Jupiter are already transiting Aries, Saturn is aspecting Aries and now Mars 8th aspect on Aries shows lots of malefic energy in Aries sign or the house where Aries falls in our chart. This impact will remain for next 3 months as Mars will aspect Aries from next sign Libra too. So, for next 3 months, we need to be extra careful about the house related matters where Aries falls in our chart. It is more so if Aries falls into Dushthana Houses. Also, we must avoid negative representations of Aries which are dominance, control and aggressive behavior and focus more on actions, individuality and finding our uniqueness. Only positive thing here is Mars aspecting its own sign Aries. So, it is kind of protecting that house/sign. It means that if we are proactive with our actions/efforts then we can mitigate the possibilities of any major issues in life. But overall, so much of malefic energy in one house/sign is not good to have. At least we should let go of our expectations from Jeeva Karakas of that house and focus more on Ajeeva Karakas.

As always, transits give results only after overall chart and dashas also show same result. So, we need to look at chart and dashas too. Mars’ good position in birth chart can also help us navigating tough transits. Still, needless to say that we need to be careful and aware during this transit to avoid conflicts, arguments and any sudden event. Take extra care of the house where Aries falls in your chart.

Hope this helps. Thanks,
