After one hell of a year, the change of pace we all want is finally here! See, Mars has been in Aries since June 2020. The planet of action, motivation, and libido usually spends just a few weeks in one sign, but we had the pleasure of experiencing a rare Mars Retrograde last year (ugh!), which meant Mars was in Aries for more than six months. On January 6, Mars finally moves out of Aries and enters the fixed earth sign, Taurus. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are all thriving, but the fixed signs Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius might need to prepare for a bumpy ride until Mars moves from Taurus to Gemini on March 3 .
Mars is Aries' ruling planet—they’re both fiery, upbeat, and active, so they vibe perfectly, for better or for worse. Taurus, however, is one of Mars’ least favorite signs. Mars is in constant motion, extremely motivated, and wants immediate results. Taurus understands that slow and steady wins the race, and is fine with playing the long game. It’s a weird mix of energies!
Taurus is a materialistic earth sign, so this transit has you chasing your bag—but thanks to Mars' impatience, you might clock in for a double shift, totally kill it, and then get frustrated if you don't get a promotion on the spot. Taurus is calm, cool, and collected 99.9% of the time, but when they’ve finally had enough of someone’s shit, they won’t hesitate to blow TF up!
Despite these potential challenges, this can actually be a productive time to start something new. Taurus constantly struggles to begin projects or relationships, while Mars is the zodiac’s initiator. So set a goal. A big goal—the perfect relationship, that big promotion, a new job—and make a plan.
Mars also rules the libido. You’d think that Mars' transit through its fave sign, Aries, would be amazing for your sex life, but Mars in Taurus is waaaaaaay hotter! It's the perfect time to splurge on luxurious lingerie, put on your favorite scent, and (after hours of foreplay) make slow, sweet love with your boo.
Over the net two months, embrace your Taurean side—the part of you that’s focused, practical, and hardworking—and use it to make some serious magic happen. And don't forget to have fun! *wiggles eyebrows*

Mars in your sign made you feel like you were taking constant espresso shots every day over the past six months, so you’re probs going to enjoy how low-key things feel now that the red planet is in Taurus! My suggestion? Take a hot second to relax, but after that, it’s game time! You’re able to make more money now, but try to save what you can—Mars' influence can make you feel the urge to impulse shop all night.
Whenever a planet enters your sign, you begin to embody that planet’s energy. So now that Mars is Taurus, you’re feeling more energized, motivated, and horny! The world really is yours right now, so you can take even your biggest dreams and begin to bring them to life. You just have to be willing to put in the work!
Mars in Taurus is lighting up your chart’s twelfth house, which rules the ending of cycles and secret enemies. Sorry, but that means you might discover that friends or colleagues are talking shit behind your back, or exes/ex-friends could come back into your life in a bad way. Old jobs or projects could pop back up, too. Take the next few weeks to cut off loose ends and get rid of whoever/whatever's no longer working. Give yourself a clean slate now—that way, when Mars enters your sign in early March, you can start all kinds of new, exciting projects and relationships.
Over the next few weeks, you might feel like your squad is playing one big game of musical chairs. Mars in Taurus is saying that there’s a lot of action happening in your social life. Your buddy might become your bestie, or you have to cut off a pal who's acting shady. The types of people you surround yourself with are very telling about who you are as a person, so take this time to make sure your crew is in top-notch condition—even if that means kicking someone to the curb.
This transit is major for your professional life, Leo. Like, major major. Leos love to be in the spotlight, but even you might be nervous with how much you’ve become the center of attention at work! Your boss is keeping a very close eye on you, so your performance really, really matters. Do poorly, and you can expect some serious consequences, but do well, and you might just secure that big promotion or raise!
You’re feeling more motivated to experience the world around you right now. If you’re a student, or thinking about going back to school, this is a great time to stay productive. If you’re not in school, traveling is usually a great option with Mars in Taurus, but since, y’know, all of this *waves hands* is happening, that’s probs not going to happen. You can still broaden your horizons, though—watch a cool Netflix docuseries, start studying astrology, learn a new language, or just find a new hobby!
Mars in Taurus' vibes are hitting two major areas of your life: Intimacy (woo!) and debt (boo!). Your sex life is blazing hot right now, and you’ve never felt more connected with your boo. If you’re single and dating/sexting/swiping/etc., catching feelings is basically a guarantee. And as far as debt goes, if you owe anybody anything, they’re coming to collect. But if you’re waiting on someone to pay you back for something, now’s the time to get in touch.
Mars in Taurus is helping you focus on your relationships (both romantic and platonic) and make them stronger, more stable, and more secure. If you’ve been casually dating someone, now’s the perf time to DTR. If you've made a new friend, you can turn them into a bestie. If you're boo'd up, you could take your relationship to the next level. You just have to be willing to work with the other person, listen to their wants/needs, and collaborate so that you’re both happy.
Mars in Taurus is telling you to get a grip and handle your shit over the next few weeks! This transit is all about reorganizing your life. You have to hold yourself accountable, even if there's something that you really don’t want to do. If you’re not performing well at work, expect your boss to notice. If you’re staying up watching Netflix til 3AM every night, don't be surprised if you're feeling crummy. Work hard now, and you can set healthy habits that will last for a long, long time.
You are absolutely living it up with Mars in Taurus! Your chart’s fifth house, the part of your chart that governs romance, sex, and fun, is being lit up right now. Your sex drive? Sky high. Your love life? More romantic than ever. You’re feeling creative, inspired, and passionate with this transit. It’s honestly one of the best times of the year for you, Capricorn, so enjoy it!
The next several weeks can bring a lot of inconveniences at home. You may have to deal with some appliance (like your dishwasher) breaking down, or these challenges might manifest as roommate or family drama. Still, you can make this transit work in your favor. Let your broken dishwasher be a reason to deep clean and redecorate your kitchen, or try to work through arguments with roomies/the fam (instead of being your stubborn, passive-aggressive self) so that you can fix your issues and get closer to them. Take a serious, practical, Taurean approach to these problems, and you’ll be just fine!
Your sign tends to be shy and low-key, but energetic Mars is vibing wonderfully with you right now, Pisces, and you’re really coming out of your shell. You’re feeling extroverted and eager to connect with others, and you’re confidently speaking your mind. This is an amazing time to make new friends, network, or slide into your crush’s DMs—just stay mindful or you could come off as extra.
Happy New Year! You deserve some astro merch:
