Mars enters Taurus - Action requires patienceby Leslie Tagorda
This is where your individual birth chart placements come in. When you were born, you came to Earth with a very specific set of energies that are special to you specifically, based on the placement of the planets in the sky. Just because you have a Sun that was in the constellation Capricorn when you were born, doesn’t mean the other planets were also in Capricorn!
In real time, when a planet ingresses into a new sign, if you have those natal energies, notice what energizes and activates for you. Note how this activation feels. If it’s Mars, it’ll gear you up to action; if it’s Mercury, it will prompt you to reassess how you communicate etc.
Regardless, you get to choose how you will express all of these unique energies lighting up different parts of you.
In my free Biz StarCast that talks about the astro weather forecast coming up for the month and how it applies to your Work, (sign up here) I highlight the individual experiences of transits that match the signs of your planets natally. For example, even if a Mercury in Taurus affects everyone, it’ll affect you differently if you have that placement in your natal chart!
This post will excerpt that experience so you can refer back to this whenever you need to understand this part of your chart more.

Action requires patience
A season to lead with patience.
What do you want to take your time in doing and initiating?
From now through August 20, Mars grounds into peace-loving Taurus. Mars, a go-go-go energy, finds their vitality now in taking their time, creating peace, and going after creature comforts. While Mars is in Taurus, see how you can accomplish more for the long term. See where you can take action on bringing in sustainability, groundedness and building of foundations.
During this period, we are being asked to take our time, be patient, and be peaceful — all qualities that are the embodiment of Taurus ideals.
In the move through Taurus, Mars will be eventually meeting up with the North Node and Uranus towards the end of the month and early August. Know that whatever Mars touches, they energize and activate. Get curious with what this activation feels like for you.
For Luminaries with Mars in Taurus natally, you take action when the time is right. This sometimes means you’re waiting, but patiently, til it feels aligned for you to put your all in. Maybe some would call this procrastination, but there is no such thing as procrastination — it’s simply waiting for the right time to go.
You are motivated by peace, and fighting or disruption are not generally high on your to-do list. If driven to take a stand, you do it with your feet firmly on Mother Earth.
Your ability to energize is slow and steady. You are in it for the long run. Sometimes this can entail going at a snail’s pace, knowing you will get it done. Or sometimes this can be moving in quick spurts with lots of recovery and rest time in between.
Don’t dismiss your needing more time to take action as a weakness. In fact, your pace is perfect for long-term change.
If you have any natal planets in Taurus, as Mars moves through this sign, notice what energizes and activates for you. Note how this activation feels as it gears you up to take action. From fear to motivation to any other feelings that come up, you get to choose how you will express it.
