Mars in Virgo

If you have Mars in Virgo, you are an energetic worker, a perfectionist, and you have high standards for your own work. You often feel that if you want something done right, then you must do it yourself, for others never 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 other with. You constantly work 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 very realistic in assessing what you can accomplish and, if anything, you underestimate yourself. You are good at conserving your energy and pacing yourself so that you do not waste or diffuse your efforts. Sometimes an unwillingness to take risks or venture from the tried, beaten track can sometimes limit your opportunities. You may not aim high enough and may settle for too little in life. You can be a worry-wart and a fussbudget who gets lost in too many details.

With Mars in Virgo you’re practical, ingenious, a hard worker and very willing to serve others, but you really need to stop fussing over nonessentials and questioning your own purpose or motivation. You’re a master of detail, but get into trouble with coworkers because of your penchant to fuss over trivia. This also narrows the scope of your work, since it keeps you from seeing the larger picture. You get angry when others don’t work as hard as you do. You have an innate urge to save, salvage and conserve, and can make a silk purse from a sow’s ear.
