Red hot Mars, the warrior planet of assertive action and rising libidos stays in a single sign for just under two months, before charging forth to conquer its next new frontier.

Its planetary motion remains fighting forward the whole year long – Mars will not turn retrograde in 2019.

In Astrology (and in addition to what your personal Horoscope tells…) the 4th rock from the Sun activates our driving force, our motivation and fighting styles. This doesn’t mean its pistols at dawn every time Mars in town, but it does mean you’ll be pushed to find new ways to dominate and get what you want, according to where in the skies, this fiery front-runner lies.

In this collective horoscope, Mars charges through the trusty sigh of the Bull: Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac.

Under this astrology, the collective energy is steady, committed and loyal to a fault.

Expect to feel a heady rise of tenacious, hard-working determination, as under this astrological transit we all come to understand the true depths of long-term dedication. But this doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll all become workaholics! Rather, the work ethic becomes consistent and routine takes over.

Get Ready to Grow

Anything you do when Mars is in earth sign Taurus needs a firm and rooted foundation from which to grow. Making decisions of the hoof (or leaving for work flustered, without breakfast, for eg.) just won’t cut it – unless your sensual needs and desires are taken care of first, it will all fall apart. And you’ll start to wonder why you’re working so hard anyway. So be sure to eat right and go to bed early… sure, it’s not glamorous but it’s how you’ll keep Mars in Taurus happy, and keep performing as your best self.

And like fellow earth signs Capricorn and Virgo the results of what you’re working for need to be tangible too. All the better if they make you feel good too – as one of the most sensual signs (of course it is, ruled by planet Venus!) Mars in Taurus puts well being at the top of the list of priorities.

Trouble Course-correcting

For gaining and keeping momentum with projects and tasks, this is one of the very best Mars placements. Taurus has stamina. What it doesn’t cope quite as well with is course corrections and changing minds. So if you suddenly come up with a bright new idea at work or play, don’t take is personally if you’re not met with open arms. Making an 11th-hour volt-face with Mars hurtling through Taurus may not work out well. Best stick to the plan.

This head-down approach can express through each of us as inflexible stubbornness. If stability falters, even for a moment, alarm bells will ring. They call it bull-headed for a reason, so if you’re offered a spontaneous escape and you’re sure it doesn’t fit with the program, check yourself. Are you getting stuck in a rut?
