Astrological tradition says that Mars isn’t comfortable when he sets up shop in Taurus. Why? Well, Mars is the planet of "go" and Taurus is the sign of "take it slow." However, this doesn’t mean these two can’t work together. The key to success during Mars in Taurus is having solid roots before pursuing any new directions. When Mars in Taurus has its feet on the ground, there is no limit to how far we can go.
Because Mars is about action and Taurus is about our values, what we do must align with our needs if they’re going to amount to anything. It takes a great deal to move Mars when he’s in this sign, but there’s strength and endurance when the right door has been opened. This is a time to look at what we’ve recently started, and use the dogged ambition of Mars in Taurus to make it happen.
When Mars is in Taurus
Warrior planet Mars is about initiative and jumping into action. Hard-headed Taurus wants to take it easy and do things at his own pace. So, Mars in Taurus could be a time when we find it more difficult to get new projects off the ground. However, if we do manage to get the ball rolling on a plan during this transit, the influence of Taurus’ enduring nature will make sure we see it all the way through.
Mars is the planet of anger, a stark contrast to the calm Bull who doesn’t charge unless provoked. As a result, we may try to avoid confrontation as much as possible when Mars is in Taurus. While it’s easier to hide out than it is to show up for a showdown, resentment doesn’t disappear because we’ve sidestepped it. It will just get pushed down until our tempers flare, making for explosive displays if we’re not careful.
"Where’s the money, honey?" That’s what we’ll be asking ourselves while Mars moves through security-seeking Taurus. Our finances will come into focus, and material comfort becomes more important. Mars in Taurus is an excellent opportunity for us to fight (Mars) for what we value (Taurus), and pursue our financial goals with incredible steadfastness.
But it won’t be all work and no play when Mars is in Taurus! The Bull also encourages us to slow down and enjoy all the earthly pleasures life has to offer. What’s the point of working so hard if we don’t stop to enjoy the fruits of our labor every once in a while? Taurus has perfected the art of indulgence, so when Mars moves through this sign, it’ll be a time for us to kick off our shoes and relax for a bit.
If you were born with Mars in Taurus
You’re someone who knows that Rome wasn’t built in a day. You have a plodding, practical approach to whatever you’re working toward, and you’re not afraid of using a little elbow grease so you can achieve it. This is the gift of having your Mars in Taurus -- you possess the dedication and persistence needed to cross any finish line.
On the flipside, there’s a fine line between being tenacious and being stubborn. While digging in your heels is beneficial when the going gets tough, it can also mean adopting a one-track mind and "point of no return" mentality. Make sure that when you do go after something, you’re still leaving room for a change of plans or others’ opinions.
Stimulating all five senses is important to you -- and that includes in the bedroom. You possess an earthy sensuality, and need lots of affection and physical contact to feel satisfied. With your Mars in Taurus, slow and steady wins the race, especially when it comes to sex. You have great stamina and enjoy taking your time between the sheets. Sex is a basic necessity in your mind, something you need as often as air, water, or food.
Because your Mars is in Taurus, you are driven by a need for stability and security in your life. With the planet of drive and the sign of personal belongings joining forces in your chart, having plenty of money and personal possessions is high on your list of priorities. This is one of the reasons you work so hard. You know that if you want material comfort in life, you’re going to have to earn it.
