The Bare Particular: Mars in Virgo, 18 August to 4 October, 2019

After an energized march through Leo, Mars tiptoes into Virgo on the 18th of August. The planet that rules warriors and athletes is a little uncomfortable in the sign of the virgin: will he work to despoil the sign, or channel his energy into constructive service?Probably a little of both. Mars in Virgo can amp up issues over genetically modified food (or the food supply in general), healthcare, and the environment. We should remember that Mars can play on both sides of any of these issues, lending a fighting spirit to organic farmers but also to Monsanto.
