The ability to work independently or with a limited amount of supervision is shown by Mars in the 6th house.
You can work entirely on your own or set up your own business, but independence can be relative. A medical laboratory student completed a yearlong internship with intense supervision and graduated to her first full-time job when Mars entered this house. During the coming year,her work no longer required constant verification; however, she continued to work in a large laboratory setting with others. If possible, it is better for you to work alone and/or be your own boss. You have the ability to be self-motivated and can initiate and complete projects without prompting.
Workaholic tendencies are likely, especially if you have deadlines to meet or if crises periodically occur.
Compulsive work habits that are carried too far eventually begin to affect one's health nega-tively. On-the-job tension is possible for those who work too hard or find the working environment unpleasant. You could be easily angered or frus-trated by your working conditions, co-workers, or employer. Conflicts can ensue.
A fellow who was used to a very professional environment found it difficult to adjust to the lackadaisical attitude of co-workers and managers when he changedjobs and began working at a new office. He was aghast to discover the poor quality of service being rendered to clients; consequently, the situation caused him great stress. If you are easily angered and frustrated by your work, make suggestions which will help to improve conditions for everyone. Complaining is associated with this placement, but it would be more advantageous to take the initiative for prob-lem-solving. If presented tactfully, your ideas can be accepted and may help to straighten out office difficulties or conflicts.
Caution is warranted when Mars is in the 6th house of health.
If your health is slipping, start to reassess your habits, specifically looking for health practices or routines which are not good for you. It is not uncommon to find you are working against your own well-being. If you are presently healthy and follow a beneficial program of exercise and diet, you need not have any difficulty with this placement. Problems are more apparent when you are doing something you should not be doing. Generally, negative patterns do not develop during the year, but only become more obvious. This is the time you begin to see the effect of these detrimental habits and possibly feel pressured to control your behavior. Basically healthy individuals are more likely to discover minor impediments which can easily be corrected. For example, one woman no-ticed that her cholesterol count was rising and real-ized she consistently ate foods high in fat content. Another realized she was overdosing her body with megavitamins.
Common minor problems include overeating, harmful dieting, consuming foods which upset the system (such as caffeine products, hot or spicy dishes, salty snacks, allergy-producing sub-stances), failure to treat minor or chronic health problems, over-scheduling activities, and aggravat-ing skeletal problems with strenuous activity or lifting.
Serious health problems are related to self-destructive habits which tend to be especially notice-able and threatening this year.
The more serious threats to health correlate with the more excessive habits practiced over a long period of time (obesity; drug, alcohol or cigarette addictions; self-neglect or abuse; compulsive or stressful work habits; anorexia, bulimia, malnutrition, yo-yo dieting or other indiscretions). Surgery is possible during the year, especially those surgeries associated with infections (appendectomy and tonsillectomy), and those surgeries considered to be elective (steriliza-tion, cosmetic, or corrective).
The purpose of this placement is to make you more aware of any detrimental habits you might have. Correcting the habit can alleviate the health problem. Learn to take better care of yourself.
