Mars through Virgo loves revelations, exposing faults, loopholes and limitations. Skeletons rattle in cupboards during this combination of energies & symbols.
The long transit of Mars through Virgo began in November last and continues until July 2012. When Mars does an extra long transit through any sign it means a thorough movement or purge of that sign - and the house it presides over. A particular house in a personal birth chart shows an area of life (a compartment almost) but the transit has a mundane (or collective) effect too. The general or outer effect often impacts the personal situation in which someone finds themselves.
