Transiting Mars in Taurus

Mars in Taurus




Representing the God of War, Mars is one macho planet.

However, according to astrological theory, whenever he’s in the feminine, sensual and self-indulgent sign of Taurus, he’s reduced to a weakened state not unlike that of Samson after losing his locks to the wily temptress Delilah.

Personally, I don’t buy it.

While it’s true that Mars loses some of his aggression as he enjoys the sensory experiences available to him in Taurus, he’s far from depleted. In fact, the fixed energy of the Bull gives him patience, endurance and a desire for wealth. He’s also not lazy. Although his ambition does come down a few notches while in Taurus, he’s still a pioneer at heart. However, his energy is redirected. In Aries, he reveled in physical competitions; in Taurus he prizes material acquisitions.

Reliable, fiscally responsible and blessed with a financial acumen that’s second to none, Taurus is the most productive sign in the zodiac; and when it’s spiked with Mars ambition, it’s the perfect recipe for a cosmic tycoon.

That’s why those who are born with this natal placement often achieve significant success in the material world. For example, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Jessica Alba, Mick Jagger and Robert DeNiro are just a few Mars in Taurus individuals who created financial empires.

While Mars is in Taurus, his primary goal is wealth building. As for the Bull’s sensual delights, they’re just gravy.

Mars will be in Taurus from March 9 – April 21, 2017
