Mars is the closest planet to Earth that is further away from the Sun, representing the first point of departure from the inner solar system. Mars’s cycles are rough and irregular, further off the ecliptic, jagged in his recurring geometry as his scarred red face crosses the sky. Accordingly, Mars is the planet of action, courage, conflict, passion, separations, divisions. The condition of Mars at the time of our birth says something about how we fight for what we want, our competitive spirit, our propensity for bravery, our experience with danger and risk.
Mars in Taurus is in a fixed earth sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler Venus. This is someone who is slow to anger and engages in conflicts defensively, moving only to protect what’s theirs, to maintain comfort or when provoked. Their strength comes from their ability to maintain a position with sustained effort, to be sturdy, heavy and immovable, withstanding any hostility. With Mars in Taurus, they may be good at hunting, butchering, chopping, weight-lifting, wrestling. They do not forgive easily.
This is especially true if you were born with Aries, Taurus or Scorpio rising. Whether you experience the better or worse significations of this position depends on whether you were born during the day or at night, and the kind of aspects it makes with the other planets.
