I was running through a client's lunar returns, yesterday. Neptune in Pisces has created a lot of anxiety for Gemini and Virgo over these last years.

I came across a month with Virgo agitated my Mars... in the 12th. I told the client the month would be stressful, adding that Virgo doesn't handle stress that well.

I guess there are different kinds of stress but I wonder what you think.

Who struggles in stressful situations?  Do you handle stress well? What's the astrology?

I struggle so much with stress and have to work hard to even relax a bit, trouble sleeping all my life... I have 3 personal planets in Virgo (Mercury included) in the 12 house (transiting Neptune has been opposing them and still does).

I notice Taurus handles stress better. Scorpio too... Observation based on my close circle. Or it might be that Virgo talks more about it :))

Mars agitating Mercury seems problematic unless you train.

I don't perform well under stress. When I'm tired, I make mistakes. When I'm mentally/emotionally stressed, I have trouble focusing and making decisions.

I saw what happened with that female cop in Minnesota who accidentally shot a bullet instead of a tazer, and I thought fuck... that's a terrible consequence for an honest mistake. That made me think that it's really a good thing that my job is relatively inconsequential. Sometimes when I'm having an existential crisis, I feel bummed about the fact that my design work is mostly frivolous. But now I'm realizing how significant it is that nobody's going to die when I make a mistake in my job. There's usually time to correct things, and if not, the most it would cost to fix things would be measured in dollars - not lives.

Totally agree, there's enough potential in everyday life for accidents with unfixable consequences without choosing an occupation fraught with such risks. I'm in awe of those who have the stamina, but I don't.  Perhaps it's my Virgo moon?

@warped Tell me about it. I get anxiety when I am driving anywhere near people riding motorcycles or bicycles. Heaven forbid they're not wearing a helmet!

I have a stellium in Virgo b/w 7 to 22 degrees, and a Gemini mars, so here's some of my own experience: Virgos value their work & personally nothing gives me more satisfaction than the self-knowledge of a job well done. Now one of the things that happened during this transit, was that, I could no longer tell! That's stressful. It also meant that I had to rely on outsiders to gauge the progress or quality of my work (*Neptune is also transiting my 7th house), & there's no guarantee for clear & honest feedback. Ultimately, I try to do everything I can, within my power, & accept that some things are beyond my control.

I think it's a shitty transit for people with Virgo stellium, a massive brain fog.

I've been seeing a lot of this in consultations.  But also it's just the situation at large. Clearly, things are "off" and everyone knows it.

I agree. Through the course of this transit, I've also learnt to be ok with situations where, despite my best efforts, things do not pan out satisfactorily. I guess that's the neptune-transit-mars part.

Oh, & the fatigue! That's real.
