The 2021 in Review Series allows us to reflect on the horoscopes from the past year. Here's the horoscope originally posted on Instagram:
Mars enters Taurus
January 6 to March 3, 2021
Think “volcano.” Tonight (EST), Mars enters Taurus for the first time in two years and will transit through Taurus until March 3, 2021. Mars was last in Taurus from March 23-May 7, 2019. This is a big deal because Mars has spent the last six months in the sign of Aries, where it feels at home, due to a long retrograde and post-retrograde period.
The biggest shift we will feel after tonight is a shift from the fast-paced “go go go” pressure in some area of our lives to a slower, more grounded, tactile perhaps even sensual pace. I don’t know about you but I’ve felt burned out and I’m so ready for everything and everyone to just slow down a little.
But, Mars is still Mars, the warrior god. Mars is hot, fast, cutting, fiery, aggressive and likes to take action. Taurus is an earth sign often described as the bull or cows in the field, tilling the earth. Cows are big and slow and earth is dense and heavy.
What do you get when you combine big, slow, dense earth with hot, fiery action? Maybe a volcano? Lava is the epitome of hot, slow earth that takes its time but when it’s ready it explodes and leaves nothing in its wake. Even when moving quickly, lava appears to move slowly.
My advice? Don’t poke the bear. Just because the bear appears to be in a slumber doesn’t mean an eruption is out of the question. Take this time to slow down the part of your life that has felt like it’s moving too quickly. Enjoy the sensual things. Build it back up piece by piece but don’t do it alone if you can help it. Build it back up with your tribe.
If you have Mars in Taurus in your natal chart, you are having your Mars return. What do you want to take action on over the next two years? What do you want to do differently? What do you need to change how you take action? Where will you get the support? What will you do?
