Mars enters Taurus March 9, at 7:34 PM, EST. Energy will change dramatically as Mars enters the second sign of the zodiac. Taurus is an Earth sign, perfect for the early part of spring.
Mars in Aries (January 28-March 9) is very powerful in its own sign. One of the downsides of Mars here is moving too quickly without thinking through the consequences of things or acting on impulse. We have seen this happening in the news with legislation being proposed by Congress, that has been presented too quickly without enough deliberation (along with retrograde Venus, Jupiter and soon to be retrograde Mercury).
Now, as Mars enters Taurus our action will be given to much more deliberation and things won't move as fast.
Taurus is a fixed sign. Action won't come quickly, but when it does it will be more deliberate and has the potential of lasting consequences. We will be able to push ahead without being easily distracted.
Mars here, is in Venus's sign, and Venus (in Aries) is in Mars sign. This is called mutual receptivity, and can allow for a deeper understanding between the sexes as they are each adjusting to the energy of the other.
The downside of Taurus is that it can be stubborn and unbending. Compromise will be harder to come by and each party will be less likely to bend.
Taurus rules the second house of money, and it's here many of us will be focused at this time.
If you are a Taurus or a Taurus ascendant I find that Mars in your own sign makes life very busy. You would also be starting a new Mars cycle that goes for about two years.
Mars will remain in Taurus until April 21, when it enters Gemini and energy changes again.
