Results of Mars in Virgo

According to ancient scripture Saravali, planets in inimical signs do not lose all of their power and ability to produce auspicious outcomes.

Therefore, Virgo Mars reflects various positive results regarding its natural significances and the ones of the 6th and 11th astrological domains.

If cancellation of enmity occurs, the auspicious effects will be more prominent as negatives are neutralized.

Skilled & Well-Learned

Classical sources state that these natives are well learned in various arts, including various ancient topics.

This effect is reflected by various astrological indicators. Most importantly, Virgo is the 6th sign which signifies discipline, discipline, and attention to detail.

These energies become doubled as the 6th disposition is formed making these natives tremendously disciplined and critical in everything they do.

Mars in the sign ruled by Mercury endows them with passion and motivation to learn different topics and develop crucial skillsets to prosper in life. Herein Mercury signifies the intelligence and skills of various sciences.

The 6th disposition shows that they are constantly alert and concerned about their life and personality. This urges them to keep constantly developing themselves.

Sometimes, their self-criticism can overwhelm them often but if they manage to harness it effectively they eventually learn to master their topics of interest.

With that being said, if a dignified Mercury supports Mars, these natives use their criticism to improve themselves and their skills to a great extent.

The mutable modality of the Virgo allows a certain degree of flexibility in the mind which gives the ability to question their own motives, skills, abilities, and way of thinking.

It also indicates that they are willing to accept criticism from others and find the hidden meaning behind that so that they can improve themselves.

On the contrary, an undignified Mercury indicates that they rarely want to accept being wrong. As they are ignorant and resistant to admitting that they are wrong, they miss out on the chance to actually evolve and develop their skills to a greater level.

Strategic Debaters

The 6th disposition formed by Mars in Virgo also signifies arguments, quarrels, disputes, and debates. As the fiery planet Mars forms this disposition, it influences the way these individuals argue or approach opposition in debates.

First of all, they are capable of producing effective arguments quickly. The speech of these natives is energized by Mars and helps them to win over any dispute they face.

They are also very proficient in debates because they have the capability to produce arguments quickly.

At times, they are prone to generate illogical arguments to cause confusion to their opponents. This effect is especially prominent in case they are opposed or triggered by something they feel uncomfortable with.

For the same reason, they perform exceptionally well in activities related to negotiation. They have the power to change the mind of people through their speech.

However, with afflicted Mars, their intentions behind illogical or inappropriate argumentation may be questionable, at times.

A weakened Mars herein reflects insecurities about personal capabilities which forms a protective layer that is expressed through criticism and intensive argumentation. It becomes their important tactic to dodge opposition quickly and effectively.

In other words, they are very quick to speak and react in an attempt to weaken opposition but often fail to take responsibility for their words or actions.

To promote the best outcomes from Virgo Mars, it is important to use quick, but ethical arguments in order to avoid bad outcomes that are difficult to correct.

The power of negotiation and argumentation is at its best with the support of righteousness and true facts.

If a dignified Mercury supports Mars in Virgo, it indicates greatly amplified cognitive abilities that enhance their way of argumentation by supporting their statements with logical facts.


Virgo is the 6th zodiac sign which is all about details and perfection. What strengthens these energies more is the 6th disposition, which signifies the same as Virgo does.

At the same time, Mars is the planet of action which gives the momentum and drive to strive towards perfection in everything they do.

In addition to that Virgo and the 6th disposition signify perfect organizing and management skills. Accordingly, Virgo Mars natives are also very accurate in every task they undertake.

A dignified Mercury supports Mars in Virgo by providing intelligence to help handle tasks perfectly through efficient organizing and careful analysis.

A well manifested 6th disposition also gives them the ability to enhance their precision by having strict attention to every detail in their task or activity.

If Mercury is dignified, it further enhances the skills of organizing which in turn amplifies their general effectiveness in their tasks.

Very Ambitious

Virgo represents the earth element which signifies practical worldly matters. Mars in this sign reflects their proficiency in daily matters related to mundane life.

That is to say, they are very enthusiastic, passionate, and eager to take action in order to prosper in worldly life.

They have all the necessary traits for that such as discipline, great analytical skills, and high ambitions.

Herein high ambitions are reflected by the 11th disposition which denotes aspirations and fulfillment of desires.

When combining the planet of action Mars with the 11th disposition, it clearly provides lots of drive to take action and thrive.

They are highly driven by their passion which they express mainly through their profession.

The latter is indicated by the 6th disposition, which signifies service or hard work to earn a livelihood.

It is important not to become blinded by expanding desires and aspirations about materialistic matters to remain humble and levelheaded. Not only that it saves the financial condition, but also the purity of the soul.

Mars in Virgo Dignity

As Mars is undignified in the sign of its enemy, it causes certain afflictions to its significances. Hence, it is important to acknowledge the possible negative outcomes to avoid them.

Sensitive & Critical

Virgo is a very critical sign and the 6th disposition increases this trait in this combination. As Mars is undignified, it causes destructive criticism.

To be specific, individuals with this combination ofter criticize others and sort out their faults with an intention to cause moral damage to them.

Their intentional criticism is often motivated by their fear of opposition. Their insecurities make them feel weak which develops thoughts of inability to beat the competition. Thus, they come up with a clever strategy to attempt to weaken the morale of their coworkers or opponents.

In everyday life, they tend to be overly critical in their opinion towards others. The way they deliver their critical comments causes the receiving end to feel attacked or insulted.

This causes frequent disharmony in relationships with people as they have a tendency to pick on others’ choices and thoughts with bad intentions.

The inability to empathize or motivate others can also destroy their ability to lead the team effectively. That is because they tend to demotivate their teammates with unjustified criticism.

On the other hand, if Mercury is dignified or cancels the enmity, they become endowed with strong cognitive abilities which helps them to overcome their insecurities and inferiority complex.

It also enables them to use their criticism more constructively. That is to say, with a dignified Mercury, they use their criticism to find actual faults of people in order to motivate them to improve these shortcomings.

As they have no inferiority complex or insecurities with strong Mercury, they do not hesitate in motivating others.

Their arguments become also more realistic as strong Mercury helps them to explain their arguments in a detailed way which allows others to understand their mistakes and improve them.

The best way to avoid disputes in their personal life is to have a career where they can apply their criticism and argumentative nature. Their analysis nature is able to sort out all the faults and problems in a system of whichever field they are working in.

In fact, their natural traits are extremely beneficial in various professions and activities which makes these natives with Mars in Virgo thrive.

For instance, a famous operating system creator (name hidden for privacy) is a great example who is able to find, analyze, and sort out most of the problems related to software usage with the help of his extremely critical and practical nature.

Having Mars in Virgo, he is skilled in determining the root causes of issues and faults in complex software systems. He is extremely efficient in using the feedback and information (even negative) for his stairway to success.

Fear Of Foes

Classical source Saravali states that Virgo Mars natives are lacking bravery, valor, physical strength, and courage. This is confirmed by the fact that Mars is weakened by being in inimical sign resulting in loss of strength and courage.

It is also clearly stated that these natives are very much afraid of enemies and possible damages caused by them. There is a good reason for that fear because Virgo is a natural 6th zodiac sign. In addition to that, Mars in Virgo forms the 6th disposition which signifies enemies, disputes, and obstacles.

This indicates that these natives have an increased number of enemies, opponents, and challenges throughout life. The zodiac sign Virgo indicates that the challenges are mostly related to details. This means that they must constantly be alert and keep strict attention to every detail in their work or venture.

However, as Mars the planet of courage is not in the finest shape in the inimical sign Virgo, it indicates that they hesitate a lot and become overly cautious. Virgo is also a very gentle sign where Mars is not motivated to express its valor to the fullest.

Hence, these natives lack courage and are afraid to face their opponents directly. Instead, they try to delay facing reality so that they can prepare for tackling the situation of concern.

For that reason, the achievement of higher levels of success becomes also delayed because of having too many obstacles while trying to procrastinate/retreat as much as possible.

However, if Mercury is dignified or cancels the enmity, this hesitation and overly cautious nature benefit them. That is because their hesitations motivate them to be as precise as possible to avoid mistakes.

At the same time, a strong Mercury endows them with wittiness and intelligence using which they can overcome their obstacles and outscore enemies.

On the contrary, if Mercury is undignified and offers no support to weak Mars, it indicates being unable to cope with challenges both morally and physically.

Hence, they become inclined to the victim playing to artificially reduce opposition or gain sympathy, especially when they want to achieve something selfish.

Delayed Fulfillments

The delay of the fulfillment of the highest aspirations is indicated by the 11th disposition, which is negatively manifested by undignified Mars in Virgo.

The delay can also be caused by excessive emphasis on materialistic matters rather than higher values.

Without higher values, the ventures get insufficient energy from the native which may lead to premature exhaustion.

Namely, very high aspirations along with a materialistic approach can cause a lot of disappointments when goals are not met as expected.

Disappointments, in turn, can lead to giving up too soon which increases the rate of failure and causes an overall delay in the fulfillment of desires.

In addition to that, Mars relates to our actions and courage. Afflicted Mars in the sensitive sign Virgo reflects a lack of inner strength, motivation to fight adversities, and inability to take action efficiently.

More specifically, they often over-analyze the situation but miss out on the opportunity to take the proper action at the perfect timing.

To avoid disappointments and failures, it is important to acknowledge early that in order to succeed, higher values must drive the highest aspirations.

Higher values help to overcome difficulties that definitely arise sooner or later in ventures.

Not to mention, the higher purpose behind various ventures also helps to gain faith, inner strength, and courage to fight adversities and overcome challenges anytime needed.

However, if Mercury is dignified and/or cancels the enmity it indicates that they are able to have their desires and high aspirations fulfilled despite the initial struggle.

That is mainly because a strong Mercury is the planet of merchants and gives the cleverness that is required in succeeding.

In addition to that, the intellect provided by Mercury enhances the 6th disposition and makes them very skillful and strategic. With these traits, they develop the capability to dodge obstacles efficiently.

Mercury makes them adaptable to change which allows them to learn from failures and gather a lot of information for improvements which can eventually bring even better outcomes than expected.

Furthermore, the enormous amount of discipline and attention to detail they carry gives them the capability to achieve their desires. In fact, the high level of correctness in everything they do is admired by their community. The community is signified by the 11th disposition formed by Mars in Virgo.

With a dignified Mercury, they have strong analytical skills using which they can make wise investment decisions by leveraging crowdfunding and loans. In this situation leveraging loans helps to build solid bridges between the native and their highest aspirations instead of causing financial hurdles.

On the contrary, an undignified Mercury makes individuals very timid which further reduces the effectiveness of Mars. As a result, their motivation gets decreased which makes them procrastinate too much which causes severe stagnation.

Avoid Unnecessary Loans & Expenses

This combination of Virgo Mars holds energies from the 6th and 11th dispositions both of which are tightly interrelated.

Namely, the 6th from the 6th house is the 11th house which shows the connection between these houses.

In simpler words, the 6th house of discipline, self-improvement, and hard work is necessary in order to fulfill the highest aspirations of the 11th disposition.

Herein the 6th also denotes allies, both personal and financial. Hence, these natives are knowledgeable of how to leverage teamwork or loans in order to attain high aspirations quicker.

However, the negatively manifested 6th disposition signifies using loans ineffectively which increases the financial burden that might become another reason for the delay in fulfillment.

The afflicted 11th disposition shows increased expenses for the fulfillment of desires and wishes.

Hence, even though this combination indicates great success after forming alliances and leveraging financial services, these decisions are not miscalculated because of high ambitions.

It is also important to be patient and not become a spendthrift too soon. At least half portion of the earnings should be saved and if possible reinvested before increasing expenditure.
