The Impact of Mars in Taurus

Mars, the planet of stamina, ambition, achievement, and sexual energy, has spent the last

six weeks blazing through Aries, fueling our actions with fierce determination and impulsive drives. But today, Mars enters Taurus, where it will remain until July 20th. This shift brings a significant change in how we channel our energies.

Taurus embodies values, possessions, and stability. However, Mars is in detriment in Taurus, meaning its fiery, assertive nature is somewhat at odds with Taurus’s grounded, methodical approach. In this placement, Mars’s usual speed and aggression are tempered by Taurus’s patience and pragmatism. This detriment is not a weakness but rather a call to embrace a different kind of strength.

So, what can we expect over the next month and a half? Mars in Taurus demands hard determination and a realistic view of our goals. It's time to scrutinize where we want to go and devise practical, sustainable plans to get there. This period urges us to focus on long-term stability rather than immediate gratification. Financial stability becomes a priority, urging us to focus on investments and savings. This period promotes steady, consistent effort, where small, deliberate steps lead to significant achievements. Sensuality and physical comfort are heightened, encouraging self-care and deeper intimacy in relationships.

Take a look at how each rising sign will be affected during this transit.
