Mars in Virgo
This Warrior is organized! Discernment, prioritization, and attention to details is the strength of this position. This individual makes things happen, whether at work or in the home. Cleanliness, order, and simplicity are important to this native.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mars is allied with Set, the Warrior King. Virgo is allied with Nekhbet, the Crone Priestess. Nekhbet holds our feet to the fire; right action in the world is all important to this goddess. We must release anything that prevents us from doing what we came here to do.
The dilemma between action directed by ego and action connected to the Soul is central to the Egyptian myths involving Set. In one myth, he is the cruel and heartless murderer of his brother Osiris. In another, he is the protector of Ra when he goes on his nightly journey through the underworld. In the first myth, he is disconnected from the voice of his Soul. In the second, he is in right relationship to that voice.
The shadow of the Virgo Warrior is judgment and excessive criticism of self and others. When the connection between the Soul and what this person chooses to do in the world is not clean and clear, frustration follows.
Mars/Set will remain in the emanation of Virgo/Nekhbet from July 29 until September 15/16. During this time, we have an opportunity to align our actions in the world with our true calling. Strip away anything that does not resonate with the voice of your Soul. You are here for a reason. Now is the time to act in right relationship to your mission.
