Mars Across the Zodiac, Part 2
MARS IN TAURUS
This planetary position is not beneficial for the Martian energy, the immobile Earth of the Taurus decreasing the Fire, which is Mars’s specific element.
The persons who have this position are endowed with a strong vitality, but they lack dynamism and sublimatory power. They are difficult to put to action, their fermity is weakened and their actions are rather motivated by the satisfaction of the basic instincts and of pragmatic aims.
The men who have Mars in Taurus have a good vitality and physical resistance, preferring to make love for long, being very attached to their lover’s body.
It can be pleasant to make love with this type of man, but a relationship with them is often constrictive, especially for the women who have subtler and more spiritual aspirations.
This position predisposes, both women and men to great possesivity and attachment, transforming after a while these persons in something stifling for their lovers.
Mars in Taurus makes them have a rather passive attitude at the beginning of the relationship, waiting to be wooed for long before acting. But you mustn’t forget the fact that, once decided, they have a lot of vitality and their actions will be constant and persistent.
When someone succeeds in making them give up their inertness, they are capable of great efforts so as to be with their beloved. If you know you are not serious in your intentions, you would rather not provoke them, because it is hard to stop them afterwards.
Their actions are also highly motivated by pleasure and by material security. They have a strong instinct of self-preservation and is hard (almost impossible) to convince them to do dangerous and original actions.
They prefer a more traditional conduct and they tend to choose a person to whom to be loyal and from whom they expect the same attitudes. They like to work in the middle of the nature and they can be keen on tourism, gardening, having ranches or activating in natural sciences (botany, zoology, anatomy, etc.).
This position also predisposes to actions motivated by excessive material possessions (houses, lands, expensive clothes, jewelries or other expensive objects). The main qualities of this position are stability, resistance and persistence in actions.
The women with this position are highly attached of the physical presence of their lovers and of the tangible manifestations of their feelings. Their lovers must act in order to show their feelings and bring them material proves of their love.
This type of women are less aware of their inner masculine side, which makes them so dependent of the physical presence of a man, and they have to pay attention to cultivate their masculine qualities, especially independence and detachment, unless they want to become stifling, passing from fidelity (which is a great quality of this position) to possesivity.
They need to realize that they have in a potential form all qualities for which they are longing so much when a man attracts them.
