“Take your time, do it right …”
-- S.O.S Band
The planet of action and aggression is about to hit the brakes as he leaves his fiery Aries home turf. Rather than impulsive initiatives and flaring tempers, Mars is entering the sign of peace, beauty and embodiment. All the crazy Mars energy is finally stabilizing, and the discord and tension will begin to subside. We’re all being invited to slow down, ground and find a more sensual approach.
Taurus is a fixed Earth sign, and this is perfect timing for honoring Earth Day. Our energies will naturally be drawn to taking care and protecting our natural resources. Mars shows where we expend energy and what we are inspired to fight for. During this transit of Mars in Taurus, we are motivated to take care of our bodies and our beloved Earth. We can now cultivate persistence and patience instead of jumping first and looking later.
People born with Mars in Taurus often outlast others in their tenacity, and we can embody this same kind of Taurus tenacity now. This is the slow-and-steady-wins-the-race Mars. Be careful what you commit to during this time because Mars in Taurus will insist that you stick with it until the bitter end.
The nice part about this transit is the patience and ability to cultivate beauty through our actions. Relationships should benefit, as well as our connection to our physical bodies. Our need to connect with Mother Earth is exceptionally strong now, so spend as much time outdoors as possible. Nothing is more grounding than the scent of earth, trees and fresh air.
