Hello lovely ones and happy LOVE day!
Just so you know I am running a giveaway on Instagram for either a reading or coaching session.
One of my wonderful team will be picking a winner at random and I would love if one of you won but trust it will go to the person who needs it the most.
And I will be running more giveaways in the future including ones specific/solely for our Soulstrology community!
Onwards to Mars who later today moves out of Aries and will make his way into Taurus (officially on Friday February 15).
My fellow Soulstrologer the wonderful Lexie Rollet of Alexandria Astrology has contributed another piece to our community on this transit, along with a message for each zodiac sign.
Check it out and don’t forget to check Lexie out and connect with her. She is a true cosmic gem!
Mars will be moving into Taurus on the 15th and it will remain there until March 31st; proving to be quite a stubborn transit. It will be moving away from its home in Aries and into Taurus, a fairly slow-moving and stubborn sign. Taurus is a fixed sign, and it’s arguably THE MOST fixed sign.
Understanding Taurus is important when trying to figure out what Mars will be like when it’s there. Mars isn’t particularly happy being in Taurus because Mars is pure energy. Mars wants to go-go-go and constantly be active. The energy planet doesn’t really get to do that when in Taurus UNLESS Taurus is ready to act, and in which case, Taurus cannot be stopped.
Okay, here’s the breakdown of Mars and Taurus:
The Planet, Mars - as said above, it is pure energy, but more specifically, it is physical energy.
Mars governs the way we go about doing things like the speed in which we work, how we are aroused, the way we make love, how physically active we are, our athleticism, our anger, and how we physically process our emotions.
The Sign, Taurus - a few details were already mentioned but yes, it is a fixed sign, its element is Earth, its natural ruler is Venus, and its natural home is in the second house.
Taurus takes its time and prefers to stay away from gray area. Security, especially financially, is extremely important to this sign. Taurus really wants the biggest bang for its buck and will gather all of the facts before making any decisions. Being that it’s ruled by Venus and is an Earth sign, Taurus is incredibly sensual. This sign needs to touch and feel everything and it needs to feel right.
When Mars is in Taurus, Mars is constrained. For example, if Taurus sets out to make a decision, rest assured it will take a long time to deliberate. Taurus wants to check out every possible option, because to them, whatever decision is made is “going to be in place FOREVER”! Of course, that doesn’t have to be the case but Taurus thinks about the long-term. But to be honest, this very long decision-making process is really a combination of weighing every single option along with not thinking about the matter at hand at all until absolutely necessary. Taurus will drag their feet as long as possible, most likely due to the fact that they feel like the decisions they make will just be the rest of their life now!
As a collective, our energy levels may slow, but when we are on aligned, our endurance will increase. Where we were taking fast action and letting our passions guide us from one thing to the next, now we will take our time. We will make sure there’s a foothold to move to instead of moving and hoping one appears. Even our time in the bedroom might be affected. For one thing, we might just lay around in bed a little more than usual! But when it’s time to get frisky? Well, frisky isn’t necessarily the right word in this case. Sex under the Taurus Mars is more sensual and tender. There could be a little bit of roughness, I mean Taurus is Earth for goodness sake! But it’s mostly about feeling each other’s bodies, pleasure for both, soft touches, and creating a safe and supportive space.
What does this mean for each sign? See below and don’t forget to read both your Sun and your Rising sign!
ARIES/ARIES RISING: Save, save, save. Mars is in your money house, bringing the question of security to the forefront of your mind. You could feel inspired to go one of two ways: 1. Save every last penny you have; or 2. Spend it all on luxuries because you deserve it! Take inventory of the means you have available to you, focus on that stable Taurus energy, and decide which way is best to go. Maybe you really do need to build up your savings, or maybe you kicked ass when Mars was in Aries and you need a reward.
TAURUS/TAURUS RISING: With Mars in your corner, your energy increases tenfold. There will be quite a bit of energy around defining who you are and your place in this world. Are you living the way you want to live? Are you being the person you truly want to be? There may be a stronger sense of pride with the answers to these questions.
GEMINI/GEMINI RISING: There’s a bit more energy behind your search for spirituality. You may be more stubborn in your beliefs and not get too much into the more “out there” ways of thinking, but your intuition is more active at the moment. You know what’s right for you and your spiritual journey. Focus inward during this time.
CANCER/CANCER RISING: Watch out for single-mindedness within groups for this transit. You might find yourself drawn to more group activities during this time and you might even be the one taking charge, but there may be a rub where everyone (including you) will be stuck in their ways. Come to a common goal, and push for it as hard as possible.
LEO/LEO RISING: Mars is bringing some awareness to your career and public life. This month and a half are going to show you just how much of a marathon your career is, rather than an all-out sprint. Use the Taurus energy to make important decisions that could have some staying power. This could also be a great time to make sure that the actions you are taking in your career are aligned with your values.
VIRGO/VIRGO RISING: You may be feeling inspired to fight for your beliefs. You have your opinions established and the thought of anyone opposing them feels treacherous. If this is where the energy is taking you, follow it. However, just make sure this is a safe space to express your opinions. You don’t want to go saying something you later regret.
LIBRA/LIBRA RISING: Your passions will run stronger for this month and a half. Use this time to get intimate and to really physically learn your partner. If you aren’t coupled, proceed with caution just in the sense of not giving too much to someone who doesn’t deserve it. This would be a great time to decide if any joint activities are worth your energy (joint finances, joint business ventures, investing, etc.).
SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING: This time may feel a bit conflicting, especially depending on your relationship status. Part of you may feel the need for independence but another part of you will crave genuine connection with another. Finding the balance between the two will be key, but also...tender lovemaking ;-)
SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING: There’s some drive for getting on those health goals that you may have established on January 1. However, that drive might not be incredibly motivated. If you want to get on these goals, don’t wait until the last minute to take action, or else laying around on the couch might be calling your name a little too loudly.
CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING: You may feel the energy to assert yourself in matters of creativity, romance, and your children (if you have any or are thinking about having them). Your competitive drive could be stronger, maybe get into a rec sports league to burn off some of this energy. Or, hop in bed with your mate and burn off some energy that way!
AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING: For this transit, your energy will be pulled homeward. This is a wonderful time to stay home and get your rest, especially after all of that energy that has been in your sign for the start of 2019! Stay in bed a little longer, refresh the living room with a couple of plush blankets and fluffy pillows. This is your recharge time.
PISCES/PISCES RISING: With Mars in your house of communication, you may be experiencing a bit more stubbornness than usual. This time you’ll feel less compelled to explore someone else’s ideas but rather you will stand firm in what you believe and know to be true. This can be helpful given the circumstances but just take note if you’re being stubborn just to be stubborn, or is this truly a time where you need to stand your ground.
