Mars in Taurus

Now to May 11, 2015

 

Astrological tradition says that Mars the Warrior is not comfortable in bucolic Taurus. The reasoning is simply that this planet of “go” isn’t at its best in the sign of “go slow, go very slow.” Earthy Taurus is a fixed sign. It occupies the middle of the spring (in the Northern Hemisphere) and symbolizes the sweetness of burgeoning plant life. Taurus doesn’t want to go anywhere. It’s fine where it is.

The challenge is that Mars doesn’t like to stand still. It lives for action, not the couch potato life of Taurus. It may, therefore, be a bit more difficult to get new projects off the ground. This is a period in which a solid foundation and a plentiful supply of fuel are required to get your rocket off the launch pad.

Mars is also the planet of anger. The Bull is basically a very calm beast. It can take considerable poking and prodding before its ire is raised, but when it is, look out! Personally, you may find this to be a time when you’d prefer to avoid confrontation. It’s easier to duck a fight now than meet your opponent face to face. Yet, resentment doesn’t disappear when the cause is not confronted. It just goes underground where it is much more dangerous than an open display of anger. But Mars in Taurus also needs to know when to end the battle, rather than prolonging it endlessly.

A key to success now is to be solidly rooted before reaching out in a new direction. When Mars in Taurus has its feet on the ground, there is no limit as to how far it can go. It is motivated not by hunger, fear or desire. It is motivated by the joy of building, creating and the intrinsic joy of the work itself. Taking pleasure in your job not only makes life nicer, but can make you much more productive.

Taurus, in the end, is about personal values. Actions need to align with individual needs if they’re going to amount to anything. It takes a great deal to move Mars when in this sign, but there can be incredible strength and endurance when the right path has been opened. Look at what you’ve begun recently with Mars in Aries (February 11 – March 22). This fiery sword has cut sharply, making room for the Mars in Taurus steamroller to come through. The road is wide, enjoy the ride.

A good many dancers were born with Mars in Taurus, perhaps a reflection of the principle of pleasure (Taurus) through movement (Mars). Among them are Paula Abdul, Maurice Bejart, Merce Cunningham, Shirley MacLaine, Rudolph Nureyev and Ginger Rogers.

Mars in Taurus poets include Robert Bly, Robert Frost, Omar Khayam, Henry David Thoreau and Paul Verlaine. Some not so sweet guys in this category are Nazis Martin Bormann, Adolph Eichman and Adolph Hitler, as well as Fidel Castro and Ruhollah Khomeini.

Taurus is associated with the throat, so it’s not surprising to find singers Belinda Carlisle, Celine Dion, Wynona Judd, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Ann Murray, Leontyne Price, Pat Boone, Glen Campbell, Mick Jagger, Billy Joel, Dean Martin and Graham Nash with Mars in this sign. Mars in Taurus painters are Salvadore Dali, James McNeill Whistler, Andy Warhol, Paul Klee and Edgar Degas.

Actors with Mars in Taurus are Tom Cruise, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bette Davis, Robert DeNiro, Sidney Poitier, Jack Lemmon and Charlie Chaplin. There is also that giant of jazz John Coltrane and the great spiritual teacher Rudolph Steiner.

Mercury in Taurus

Now Until  Apr 30, 2015

 

Earthy Taurus offers a sturdy environment for speedy Mercury, the planet of communication. This period is one in which solid values, concrete ideas and practical perspectives are likely to take on greater significance for all of us.

Mercury generally excels at flexibility, but Taurus is arguably the least flexible of all the signs. We may find ourselves digging in and taking rigid positions when opposed by different ideas, concepts or facts at this time. It’s vital that we not lose our ability to stay open-minded to overcome Taurean resistance to whatever is new or different.

Ideally, Mercury in Taurus connects us with the earthy realities that will nurture the growth and development of our ideas. Taurus offers a rich soil of values and commitment that can provide resources to carry thoughts from conception to birth. Slow, careful conversations enable us to consider alternatives without ever losing sight of fundamental values and underlying practical issues.

Mercury tends to be a bit less gabby in Taurus than in most other signs. Some good examples are Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood and Miles Davis, all born in chatty Gemini, but with communication styles reflective of their less talkative Mercurys in Taurus.

Actors Alec Baldwin, Russell Crowe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Uma Thurman, Renee Zellweger, Annette Bening, Brooke Shields, George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, Jack Nicholson and Billy Dee Williams belong to the Merc in Taurus group. Singers Barbra Streisand, Bono, Wynonna Judd, Janet Jackson, Cher, Carnie Wilson, Pete Townsend and Joe Cocker were also born with Mercury in the sign of the throat.

Other public figures with this placement include Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, John F. Kennedy, Gary Kasparov, Sally Ride, Ram Dass, Orson Welles, Joe Louis and Pope John Paul II.

Planet Watch for April 20th: Sun in Taurus

Planet Watch for April 20th

Sun in Taurus

Power your way to pleasure

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of taurus, sun, astrology

It’s time to stop and smell the roses — literally! When the Sun moves into earthy Taurus from April 20 to May 21, life will shift into a lovely, lazy and much more pleasurable phase.

Taurus is ruled byVenus, the goddess of love, which surrounds us with beauty and abundance and sensuality. Our senses are awakened to fall in love all over again with the things that make us feel good to look at, touch and taste.

As the Taurus Sun shines down at the height of spring, we’re all encouraged to delight in earthly pleasures. This nurturing of self will ground us, and help us to build strong and practical foundations moving forward.

Those born from about April 16-22 were born on the Aries-Taurus cusp, and those born from about May 17-23 were born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp. Being born on the cusp simply means that you were born during the transition time between two zodiac signs, so you retain some qualities from each sign.

Indulge in the beauty and pleasure of the physical world, Taurus style — it’s good for your soul!

Here’s how to make the most of life during Sun in Taurus:

What to do: Delight your senses! It’s time to enjoy the best things in life. Lounge in bed with your lover, indulge in delicious food and drink, and go on hikes to breathe in all the beauty of nature. Feel alive and love it!

What to say: “No.” Taurus is symbolized by the stubborn Bull because they always want to have their way. Use this Sun in Taurus energy to get your own way and make yourself happy now, and just say “no” to anything that doesn’t feel right.

Where to go: Get outside! Nature-loving Taurus is most at home when surrounded by scenic wonders — think rolling hills, fresh grass, blooming flowers and crackly forests. Plan a camping trip, go for a hike or rent a cabin in a scenic setting while the Taurus Sun shines.

What to wear: Something soft and fuzzy! Taurus is all about texture, so wear things that feel good to the touch — cashmere, soft suede, silky fabrics and luxe leathers will do the trick.

What to buy: Shop for finest of everything you can get your hands on. Look for fragrant and gourmet things that will awaken your senses, such as chocolate, perfume and flowers. These things are not superficial or trivial — they will nurture your soul, so spare no expense!

What to watch out for: Taurus is known for never giving up, and that’s a good thing unless … you’re wrong. And if you make the Bull mad, they sure can charge! Be aware of being too stubborn or having angry outbursts while the Sun is in Taurus. Make an extra effort to more flexible now.

What to look forward to: Comfort and happiness! Surround yourself with beauty and physical comforts, like a true Taurus always does, and you’ll enjoy this as a beautiful opportunity to nurture your soul throughout the Sun in Taurus season.

Astrology of Today – April 20, 2015

Astrology of Today – April 20, 2015

Summary:

Today, the Sun enters the Fixed Earth sign, Taurus. We’re more practically, materially, and sensually oriented during this month-long cycle. While the Taurus Sun is a practical energy, an approaching Mercury-Jupiter square can promote impractical thinking. It’s a good time for thinking big, but refinements will likely be necessary later, if these take off at all. Watch for exaggeration – making too much of something.

  • The Moon is in Taurus until 7:27 PM.
  • The Moon is void until 7:27 PM (since 7:06 PM yesterday).
  • The Moon is in Gemini from 7:27 PM forward.
  • The Moon is in its New Moon phase.
  • The Moon is waxing.
  • The Sun enters Taurus today (the Sun transits Taurus from April 20-May 21).
