Mars turns direct in Taurus: Align your life force to achieve your goals

Mars, which has been moving backwards in retrograde motion since last two and a half months, will finally turn direct on January 13, 2023. It all began on August 10 last year when Mars moved into Taurus. On October 16, the red planet moved to Gemini sign, but went into retrograde motion on October 30 and moved back to Taurus on November 13.

What Mars signify in our lives

Mars is the fire which gives birth to our body. It symbolises our physicality and vitality. Apart from this, it controls the aggressive energy around us. If channelised properly, Mars gives high motivation and ambition, but if its energy is not harnessed suitably in our lives, then it leads to anger and conflict. Mars also signifies land; hence it owns the real estate industry along with engineering and defence.

What happens when Mars is in Taurus

Taurus is an earthy sign and carries the core element of endurance and practicality. When a fiery and action-oriented planet like Mars is posited in Taurus, it slows down the speed of Mars, thereby providing strength and stability to our outlook. We are driven by security and fondness for personal possessions. Most of us are not afraid to work for what we want, and there is an overall patience to this position of Mars. Focus on what you’ve lately begun and employ the tenacious drive of Mars in Taurus to see it through to fruition.

How does retrogression impact Mars

When a planet gets into retrogression, its speed slows down. In astrology, this period coincides with a phase of retreat and introspection. It guides us to look inward and solve problems at a fundamental level. We need to get to the root of why a certain problem keeps cropping up and we must re-align its energy in our lives in order to fix it.

Mars has been in retrogression for more than two months leading to unpredictability in our lives and relationships. With respect to career, this could have made us more impulsive and get into unnecessary arguments with seniors and employees. Similarly, in relationships, this energy of Mars would have made us a bit more argumentative and prone to being aggressive. Since this retrogression of Mars was in Taurus sign, it would have made us more possessive of our belongings and would have lent a harsh tone as well.
