Mars In Sixth House: Personality Traits
Working hard comes naturally to those with Mars in the 6th house, and you settle for nothing less than perfection. All of your energy and enthusiasm goes into getting things right, whether or not you work alone or with a team. While your direction is true, your standards are tough.
Your attention to detail is unmatched, and this makes you good at any job. You are disciplined, organized, and thoughtful, and you rarely disappoint people with your work. You are so meticulous that people are often in awe of your work ethic.
But this is also why you don’t take constructive criticism well. Even if it’s a slight variation that someone else sees as trivial, you take it as an insult to your entire project and all your efforts.
Mars In 6th House: Positive Traits
The Mars in sixth house astrology suggests that you should try to be less demanding on those around you, friends, and family included. Your ideas for perfection do not often gel with other people’s ideas, and you need to be able to compromise sometimes to get things done.
This doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the final result. It simply means there are different ways of achieving the same goal. Keep an open mind when others offer input. Virgo being your ruling star sign, you can’t stop being a perfectionist.
You may learn a thing or two from those who have a different area of expertise than yours. In this way, you will gain more respect and loyalty. And people will work harder for you if they know how much you appreciate their efforts. Just like you enjoy the praise, so do they. This will create a better working environment and also build a healthy home life as well.
Mars In 6th House: Negative Traits
While you are capable of working in a team, you would rather be in the lead role or working independently. Your standards are so high it’s almost impossible for other people to live up to them.
This is true for your loved ones as well, who often get frustrated when you try to “help” them become better people. Usually, they are unaware of the shortcomings you want to fix. (Read about relationship pitfalls you can avoid).
But you don’t see it that way. You are simply trying to improve upon someone’s method to make them more efficient or tap into what you see as underutilized potential. You are also very impatient, which makes working with others a challenge. If you feel they aren’t moving at your speed, then you see them as procrastinating or even being lazy. Knowing the Virgo man or Virgo woman personality will help you understand this better.
Because you take things so personally, you believe other people are taking away your ability to get the job done efficiently and perfectly. Often people are not aware of your frustration, though, because you don’t voice your opinions effectively. You tend to come off as bossy or arrogant, and that’s when people stop listening.
The Mars in 6th house personality also tend to want most of the credit for a project, because of all the hard work and dedication you gave to it. This can leave the rest of the group feeling used or under-appreciated.
Be sure to share the praise and acknowledge the efforts of those who helped. And don’t easily dismiss when others offer their help in the first place. When you can work closely with others and get things done, it is a satisfying feeling for everyone involved. There will be less stress on you, less stress on them, and more enjoyment all around.
