Slowing down for Pleasure: Mars in Taurus from March 9 to April 21

Mars in Taurus is heavy, rich and fertile like the water-soaked earth of spring, warmed up from the Sun. I imagine the smell of a herd of buffalo trampling the ground and breaking the seeds that will sprout new life. The mixed aromas of animal and earth combined with the warm air; intoxicating and primal. The unique sensual quality of this placement is the natural result of being embodied in the physical experience. Pleasure and beauty are directly felt through the fives senses; the simplicity of a shared meal, the smell of fresh bread, the aesthetics of a curve, the taste of wine.

Mars in Taurus is solid in it’s desire. It has a fixity of purpose and the purpose grows from a deep rootedness, strong and stubborn growth that produces the biggest trees. Like the mighty oak: solid, hard wood harvested for its strength and resistance. You don’t get quick results from Mars in Taurus, there is a slow progress being accomplished and that progress is done by a steady and patient hand working the plow, digging the roots, building one experience at a time with the knowledge that summer will come, the promise of future harvest in the eye; calm, tenacious and peaceful.
