Ahh, Mars, the red planet. Not known for its subtlety, Mars has spent the past few months cruising through Aries, stirring up our worries and thoughts. On Wednesday January 6th it enters stable, chilled-out Taurus—-and life should get a bit calmer.
Mars loved being in Aries. Heck, it rules the sign of the ram! However, considering that Aries represents you, the individual (and your many desires), this planet could have really worked you up.
“What’s going on in my life? What the hell is happening in the news? When will this Covid mess be over? My love life sucks. Am I ever going out on a date again? Jeez, my boss is such a jerk. What did he mean by that comment he made yesterday?” And on and on.
So when Mars enters Taurus, a sense of greater calm should prevail. This is much needed on the world stage as well as in our personal lives. Whereas Mars wanted things done yesterday, Taurus is the sign of plodding along slowly and deliberately. People sometimes knock this Taurus trait, thinking that bulls are working with a “manana” attitude.
But no one wants to be running down a street in Pamplona with a bull just about ready to plant its horns in their sorry ass. The bottom line (pun intended) is that when bulls decide to step on the gas, they can really get things done.
So slow down and consider your options for 2021. We’re all sick and tired of delays, and slowing down is getting old. But getting riled up about things you can’t control isn’t going to help either. With Mars in Taurus, it’s time to give things some added thought and planning. That’s all.
Besides, Mars is one of the planets that rules sex, and Taurus is oh-so-sensuous! This is the sign of candlelight and flowers, fine wines and gourmet food. Taurus operates with all five senses, ignoring their mobile devices and turning off the notifications. When Mars is in Taurus it’s the perfect opportunity to get in touch with your sexual side.
Taurus also loves lucre, cold hard cash. It’s not that bulls are Ebenezer Scrooges; they crave stability, and knowing that their cash flow and savings are secure means a lot to them.
So use this energy (which lasts until March 3rd) to boost your income or find a new gig. It’s worth noting that Uranus is already in Taurus, which is superb for generating genius ideas. Don’t ignore flashes of brilliance that come your way over the next two months. Some of these ideas could be big money makers, and with Mars by your side, you’ll have the motivation to pursue them.
However, Uranus is eccentric. Wonky. Loves surprises. Acts quickly, without a warning shot. And Mars can act before it thinks too. From January 6th through the 20th, Mars transits through Taurus and catches up with Uranus.
They line up perfectly, one behind the other, in a conjunction on January 20th. Uhhh…..this happens to be Inauguration Day in the US. So things could get crazy, and there could be some unusual news stories.
Make sure that the “unusual news stories” are played out in somebody else’s life and not your own. Seriously, rein in your impulses from the 18th through the 22nd. Don’t make major decisions. Keep your mouth shut and your temper in check.
The 20th could also be a major turning point for you when it comes to love and money. When Mars and Uranus join forces, the energy is off the charts and can be used for passion and achievement.
Considering that the next full moon occurs in romantic, creative Leo on the 28th, some juicy things could be developing! Enjoy this Taurus energy: it can heal and realx you.
