Mars is fierce independence and individuality, as well as driving force and race horse stamina. Yet the fire that rages can burn and destroy if there is not valuable purpose and direction behind the energy. Mars seeks self-reliance while in this sign, teaching us how to fight to achieve our personal goals through independence and initiative. We will never achieve our goals if we do not take a stand and expose ourselves for the world to see. Risk is absolutely necessary on the path toward success. It is high time, especially as Mars is still conjunct Uranus, to hoist the sails, take the helm of your Soul, and set a course for where YOU need to go.
Beware: Due to the conflict between Taurus’s inertia and Mars’s stamina, tension can arise in many ways during this time; relationships, fatigue, finances, sexuality, and our fear of risk. There is potential for burning through our resources due to improper reflection and foresight, because Mars charges forth often without thinking things through.
Lesson: Be sure to have valuable reasons for individuating and seeking your own course, not just arrogant selfishness. Be bold in your independence while respecting the independence of loved ones and those you have relationships with.
