Mars plays a very important role in our emotional lives. It says a lot about how we react to people and events but it also represents our sexual energy and how we behave when in love. In male’s chart, Mars represents how he behaves with the woman he loves, how he flirts, etc. while in the female’s chart it represents what characteristics she looks for in a man.
Mars in Virgo men are meticulous and hard-working. They are also nitpicky and are prone to being overly critical not only of the person they love, but of themselves as well. They want the best in their relationship, but not in a greedy and luxurious way. No. Mars in Virgo man wants a good woman by his side – someone who is hard-working, dedicated to their job and family, someone who knows how to behave and who is not emotionally clingy. These men don’t deal with their own emotions very well, so a girl who is emotionally demanding can be overwhelming for them. They want to keep their emotions in check and want their girl to do the same.
This doesn’t mean that they are incapable of love or deep emotions. They are, but they want to have control over their emotions and not just let them run wild. Actually for them, any display of emotion can be seen as a “scene”, unless they have a strong water or air sign in their chart.
These men worry a lot, and they worry even more when it comes to love and dating. What if she’s the One? What if she’s not the One? What if the date doesn’t go well? What if she finds me unattractive? All of these questions and more are constantly going through his head when he’s interested in a girl. This may not show and most men with Mars in Virgo display a cool and composed exterior to the point where a girl may wonder if he’s really into her or not.
When he notices a girl he likes, he’ll first just observe her, probably from a distance, too. He wants to see how she behaves, learn what she likes and dislikes. He’ll probably weigh the pros and cons way before he gets the courage to ask the girl out. Virgo is not a sign that has leaps of faith or jumps at the opportunity just like that. He first has to know if the relationship can stand a chance or not. He has to know if she’s into him or else he will probably do nothing (here they are similar to Mars in Cancer men). Mars in Virgo men want a stable, solid and durable relationship which is why they often move very slow in the dating game.
When in a relationship, they can be controlling. They have their own preferences, they want things to be done this or that way and if things don’t go exactly as they planned, they can become nervous and overbearing. Even though Virgo is a mutable sign, when it comes to the things he likes and doesn’t like to do/eat/watch etc. he can be very stubborn and inflexible. It’s not that they want to control their partner on purpose, it’s just that they believe they know the best and can’t understand why you would want it any other way. After all, they’ve thought it carefully out and they know that it’s the best option. This can be a difficult behavior because in a relationship, compromise is a key to happiness and Virgo Mars is almost incapable of compromise.
Mars in Virgo man is not all rules and emotional discipline. When they don’t get what they want when they want they can become very reckless on their behavior. They are capable of inadvertently doing things that most other signs who don’t see emotions as messy, would never ever do. For example, Mars in Virgo man can get angry out of the blue and make emotional scenes they so much abhor. In fact, it is often Mars in Virgo who makes scenes, not the other way around.
What a girl can get when entering a relationship with this man is a reliable man who will do his best to take care of her.
