Mars in Taurus:

Defensive Strength

When Mars transits Taurus, we lose the reckless impatience that characterized the Mars in Aries transit, and life may seem to take an altogether slower turn. Mars will be in Taurus from June 9th until July 20th, 2024.

In astrology, Mars is the planet of drive, ambition, and courage; when expressed through the fixed earth filter of Taurus, this drive and ambition become very grounded and very practical. Sensible, even, which is not often a word associated with Mars.

During the Mars in Taurus transit, determination and tenacity are great strengths, and we are generally happy to take our time to reach an objective.

Gone is the need to rush or to be first. Instead, we would rather get it right and do things properly. Step-by-step action can lead to great results, and Mars in Taurus is excellent at visionary planning.

The downside of Mars transiting Taurus, however, is the legendary stubbornness of this zodiac sign.

Because Mars likes to win, Mars in Taurus will dig in heels, even when plainly mistaken – there’s a certain perversity here that even if we know we’re wrong, we’re still going to fight the issue and refuse to give in.

Having said that, isn’t this exactly the kind of attitude all of us would like if someone were defending us or defending something very important to us?

The Mars in Taurus transit can be very defensive, and in a difficult situation, this is definitely energy you would want on your side. The "never give up, never back down" approach of this transit can mean that opponents face a brick wall of resistance.

Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing depends on which side of the wall you’re on.

The other potentially more negative manifestation of the Mars in Taurus transit is the plodding thinking which can accompany this astrological vibe.

While careful planning and step-by-step action can be a very useful combination, there are times when we need to take a leap of faith or act before there’s time to make a plan.

The cautious vibe of Taurus doesn’t always sit too well with the sheer verve and energy of Mars, so at crunch moments, when that leap of faith is needed, the energy of this transit may be simply too slow.

What Does Mars in Taurus Mean for Each Zodiac Sign?

Each zodiac sign in astrology will experience the Mars in Taurus transit slightly differently, depending on the exact position of Mars in any individual birth chart, and its interplay in that birth chart with the other planets.

In general, however, all zodiac signs will sense a slower, more considered vibe when Mars is in Taurus, and will find extra reserves of determination and steadfastness.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Mars in Taurus

Mars is transiting your money zone, so it’s a very good time to seek extra income, to start a new side hustle or to drive through ambitious financial plans.

Because of the cautious nature of this transit, you’re more likely to seek financial advice rather than thinking you know it all, which is helpful. This influence also encourages saving and investment rather than spending or risk-taking, perhaps providing a much-needed counterbalance to your more impulsive financial behavior at other times of the year.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mars in Taurus

With Mars in your own sign, you are more determined than ever to make your mark in the world. However, this influence also makes you more argumentative and less calm than normal.

Little things which would not normally bother you may set you off into a rage – and once you’ve started down that route, you’ll find it hard to reign in your temper. Nonetheless, this is a good time for showing off your skills and talents, and for working on self-improvement.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mars in Taurus

Time in your own company will be much more appealing than normal while Mars transits your most spiritual zone. Expect to be driven towards solitude, prayer, meditation or other spiritual activities, even if you can’t quite understand why.

You may also feel driven to uncover secrets at this time – but do remember that once you know something, you cannot choose to un-know it. Finding things out often has consequences.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mars in Taurus

Get active socially while Mars is in Taurus. This is an interesting time for you, especially if you would like to take the lead in your local community or in a social or charity project which is close to your heart.

Be aware, however, that you may end up provoking friends and acquaintances because you will not be willing to agree to disagree. Being too dogmatic over your own point of view could lead to social discord during this transit.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Mars in Taurus

Mars transits your career zone during this period, so it’s all systems go on the work front. You excel at strategic thinking so you can use this energy to create some long-term plans, building a roadmap for your future.

Keep an open mind, however, as to whether your current career path is right for you or not; just because you’re doing a certain job now does not mean that you have to do it forever. Be open to a change of direction if it feels right.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Mars in Taurus

A desire to stretch your wings will be very evident for you during this transit. Itchy feet may lead to travel, but you’ll want to ensure that every last detail of the journey is planned ahead of time.

This astrological vibe gels well with your organizational skills, and it’s also very helpful for you if you are studying. You’re driven to find answers, so research and learning of any kind are high on your agenda during this transit.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Mars in Taurus

Lots of self-analysis is par for the course during your Mars in Taurus transit, as this activates the most psychological part of your chart.

You’ll examine your own motives and behavior and be driven to be the best that you can be. This can be a very positive time for dealing with fears, phobias or past trauma, but the levels of anger any such therapy may release could be off the scale.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mars in Taurus

With Mars transiting your love zone, this could well be a passionate if tumultuous period for your closest relationship.

Because love and hate are so often two sides of the same coin, you may also find yourself regularly detesting your partner – before making up again. It’s often an intoxicating and memorable period, which can create lasting change in a relationship. Whether that’s for better or for worse, is up to you.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mars in Taurus

Focus on your health during this transit, as you are being gifted the opportunity to renew and refresh your vitality. Competitive sports are particularly appealing to you right now, but any kind of activity will help to keep your stress levels down and your happiness up.

This often coincides with an exceptionally busy time at work, however, so finding time for physical exercise may not be easy.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Mars in Taurus

When Mars transits your fellow earth sign Taurus, it brings out the very best in your creativity. Building and making things – whatever they are – will bring you a lot of satisfaction, and you’ll also feel a lot more sociable than normal.

Get involved in things that make you laugh and things that inspire passion in your core. This transit is all about doing much more of whatever brings you joy.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Mars in Taurus

It’s your family zone that is activated by this transit, which can be a tricky one for you. Although Mars is an action planet, Taurus, like you, is a fixed sign, so stubbornness at home and within the family is highly likely.

Try to avoid using strongarm tactics or threats to get your way at home. Allowing everyone to have their say may result in some huge arguments, but this clearing of the air will be beneficial in the longer term, so hang on in there.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mars in Taurus

You’ll find this transit useful for pinning down vague ideas or woolly communication. It’s also helpful for getting new projects off the ground and for actually making a start on things that have previously seemed too big to handle.

Get organized, make lists, create schedules and take some baby steps every day towards a cherished goal. This transit helps you to realize that yes, you can do this.

    Hello, I'm donalding in California. I was elated to get your text message and your challenge to make a video testimonial. I'm at a huge crossroads and starting over and I am the oldest person in the dorms at West Hills College and California. I'm going to study and get smarter and figure a way out of this little mess. I didn't know about Pisces or any of these things coming into my life and I definitely need to avoid bullying. There are and things are going to be just fine. We are interconnected, we are, we are loving, we are not competitive, and we are not.

    Hi, guys. Me and the cat here say hello, Kitty. I think anytime you got a real person that you can see talking to you is better. I think just video in general makes everything better. It's more entertaining, it's easier than reading. So if you do your own fair share of reading, it's good to just be able to listen for a change. So I think it's a good thing. I don't know if I'm answering, really what you wanted me to address, but keep up the good work. I'm enjoying it anyways. Bye, guys. Bye.

    Hello. How you doing? Good morning. I just like to appreciate all the encouraging things and basically, like, being. Hitting everything on in the head, what goes on through my life and everything, you know, I'm a firm believer, and it's just a real blessing to have someone like you all to, you know, with the heads up, with the presence, just everything. And I just wanted to let you know, greatly appreciate of you, you all. And, um, like, I know I have a special calling in life. Just through various things just went on in my life. I could tell. It's like, you know, I haven't been through a lot. I've been through a lot, but I always let my good outweigh my bad, always keep me a positive head. And, you know, I do my best to speak life into my situations instead of doubt and complain most of the time because I know God's got my back regardless, through anything. But I just like to thank you for all you have done. And at times, I may even forget to look on, look on here. But when I do go back and look, I catch what need to be caught, you know, it's just that, you know, it's a busy point in my life right now. Like, it's real busy and. But I still make time through it all. I just like to say I thank you and I appreciate you all for each and everything. And when I do be able to receive the funds and start investing in this and help out, I will. Until then, thank you. I love you. Thank you. Bye.

    Kelli, I have come to RELY upon your dailies (Cancer), especially your unique Rating System! Feel LOST on those rare days when I don't have that going for me! So what has become of your daily "extras"? Are you taking a break and someone is subbing for you lately? I certainly hope that is the case and that you are well! Praying for you, love you! - Lou

    I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I rely on you. If I get rich, I'm taking you with me. I'm going to have you with me every day of my life just because it's kind of weird. It's kind of scary how dead on you are all the time. But you want to know what? I love you. Thank you for finding your way in my life. I love all your emails and everything. And sometimes it scares me and I just try to be like, okay, let me just steer away because I always feel like I'm missing out on something, being occupied by stuff I'd rather not be occupied by, entertaining people and stuff that shouldn't be, getting people blocking my blessings, I guess you'd say. But besides that, I just need to take a leap of faith and just go all in it because I know who I am, what I want and I can't get it when I'm sitting in the house not doing anything because I'm all depressed because of the people that I have, people that suck my energy away. I don't know how to explain it. Just people that front row cheer me on to fail. But seriously, I love you. Thank you. I appreciate you. Bye.

    Hey, Kelly. I am ready. If I had known I was going to be recording this, I would have worn some makeup. So anyway. Oh, that's my vanity speaking. Sorry about that. But anyway, I do love listening to you and I always acquire a lot of knowledge. I've been studying astrology since I was about eleven years old. I love it and I can't get enough of it. But I just wanted to let you know that I loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that you put on there. It's so true. We need to live life while we have it and make the best of it. And astrology will help us lead the way. I'm assured of that. Anything we can learn when it comes to astrology will only help us to live a better life. And by your volunteering all your information, I thank you a million times over. You are such an asset. And I know the stars and the planets are shining down upon you and I listen to you all the time on YouTube and your Zoom channel and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your throat feels better. Kelli keeps drinking some hot. Thank you for everything you do. My name is Judith and I'm from Greensboro, North Carolina, and I'm a cancer and I love all of what you have to say. Thank you. Bye.
