Mars in Taurus Personality

Those with their Mars in Taurus aren't easily put off their paths. These folks are as fixed as their modality. While Taurus placements are often derided for their lethargy, Taurus Mars can actually be a very capable worker when they're motivated. With the strength and will of their symbol, the Bull, they till their field until the work is done. Given their gradual approach to labor, they excel in long-term ventures and generally stick to one at a time. Multitasking isn't exactly in the toolbox of these steady individuals.

Beyond the realm of work, as Taureans, they excel in the art of relaxing after a long day. Leisure is an art form for Taurus Mars, and they are true virtuosos. Taurus being ruled by lovely Venus, those with this placement are some of the more sensual people in the zodiac.

Positive Traits

Mars in Taurus creates a deliberate individual. They will not act until they've entirely surveyed a situation. Thoroughness is the name of their game. It's very rare to find these natives in a rush. Unlike their fiery predecessor, Aries, Mars in Taurus can temper their tempers and will only explode when pushed far beyond their limits. But God help those who manage that. Taurus Mars shares the temperament of a bull, so their ire is a sight to behold. Once someone starts them up, they can be difficult to stop.

Negative Traits

Taurus Mars put the "bull" in "bull-headed." Once they have chosen a path, it's nearly impossible for them to change direction, even if they're headed the wrong way. Given their somewhat petty nature, they may begrudge others for attempting to make them change.
Due to this aversion to change, these natives may miss out on opportunities that may require snap decisions. Passivity plagues those with their Mars in Taurus as a sign ruled by sweet Venus. Outside of the most necessary enterprises, they prefer not to put in too much work. In a way, their work exists only to finance their pleasures.


Deliberate Taurus Mars incarnates the idea that "haste makes waste." Those born with this placement tend to take life at their own personal pace. Barring heavy pressure, these Taureans rarely lose their cool, preferring instead to lounge about the pool rather than rage. Still, people with their Mars in Taurus can be dependable workers if they're given a single project, as frequent change tends to ruffle their feathers.

While they can be a little headstrong at times, Taurus Mars people have big appetites and even bigger hearts and are willing to go the extra mile for those that they love.
