Mars is like jet-fuel, propelling you along your way, prodding your passions and sometimes pushing you past your limits. But when he's in do-right Virgo, as he is this week, his wild energy is more controlled, and that’s great for getting things done perfectly and at super-speed.
You can be at your detail-oriented best when the Red Planet moves through the sign of service. Whether you have a long list of mundane tasks, documents to get through or a backlog of emails to read -- Mars in Virgo will help get you through.
This scenario will be taken to a whole new level when Pluto, planet of slow-boiling transformation, makes a lovely "trine" aspect to Mars in late October. Pluto rules rebirth, and when he’s in Capricorn (where he’s been residing since 2008) your life is being redesigned from the ground up.
What are you ready to let go of? When Mars meets up with Pluto, it’s all about building higher, faster and better. You’re not afraid of hard work, and the more you’re willing to do, the better the results will be. Be fearless and apply your skills without compromise. Your labors will pay off beautifully later in the fall season.
Note that Mercury will be retrograde during this time, which can throw some glitches into the mix. Just make sure that you check all of your work not just once or twice, but three times.
