Whether in a relationship or not, you enjoy doing things for people and you are at your best when you are able to take care of someone who is needy. You never shy away from such responsibility.

The negative side of Mars in Virgo may be the sometimes lack of tolerance. It's hard for you to get emotionally worked up over anything, but you can be very demanding of yourself and others. This placement often holds force and aggressiveness in check, releasing it as irritability and nervous habits. And finally, you have to be careful not to become the classic workaholic for this is a real possibility with Mars in Virgo.

Jupiter is in Virgo in your chart. This is a difficult placement for Jupiter because the big picture approach of Jupiter is somewhat curtailed by the narrow focus of Virgo.

This life view can at times become a little cynical. You follow a practical and material view of life issues. Try not to make mountains out of molehills.
