On the 14th Mars will move into the astrological sign of Taurus and in March Uranus will move into Taurus as well.
Let’s talk about Taurus for a minute. Taurus is quite different from Arian energy. Taurus is the most feminine of all the signs, it’s planet is Venus, it likes beauty, art, pleasure, the things that feel good. It is like slow-motion energy, it has a solid, practical, and down-to-Earth energy with a deep sensual tone, but to understand it more, let’s look to the Age of Taurus to see more of its energy.
The Age of Taurus, the Age of Growth, spans approximately the period between 4400 and 2200 BC, with the strongest energy being between the years 3900-2700 BC. It is the age defined by the Sun being in the constellation of Taurus on the spring equinox. This period saw the fortification of the Sumerian civilization with its legendary figure of Gilgamesh; the establishment of the Minoan civilization in Crete; and the flourishing of the Harappan Civilization in the Indus Valley.
It is knowns for its great myths such as the Creation Myth and the Myth of Osiris in Egyptian Pyramid Texts as well as the Epic of Gilgamesh of Sumer. It also saw the manufacturing of papyrus, as well as the cuneiform writing of the Sumers and the hieroglyphs of the Egyptians. Now true, it is the bull that is the symbol of Taurus….but its feminine part is the cow. And during this Age, we saw the rise of Hinduism who hold the cow as sacred. Hinduism was the religion of an ancient people know as the Aryans (noble people) and it is known today as the world’s oldest religion. Another thing I would like to note here is that during this time the Egyptian Goddess Bat (later Hathor) was worshipped and was depicted as a cow goddess with horns on her head. Now as peaceful as this sounds Taurus also represents money and it can take us to its polar opposite of excessive materialism. Now with Mars, our planet of action, going into Taurus this is not comfortable energy… it is still moving but it is in slow motion….he’s focusing on some things that really need his attention to prepare him for when we get to the spring equinox and enter the zodiac sign of Aries. This is a slow and steady energy that will drive us to our success. The downside here is this is very stubborn energy, one where you can become so focused on what you think and believe, you fail to see any other reasoning. Mars is steadily building…he is building in his love-life, material possessions. When Mars was faced with Pluto in Capricorn…it was more of planting your feet and planning everything out….with Taurus it is about building that solid foundation. His energy is not forceful, it is building. So here, Mars is slow and steady and his energy is really building up.
