Excerpt from Patreon – The major movement of the week though goes to Mars who finally enters Taurus also on January 6. This changes the way we approach our goals. Most importantly, it gives us a change of pace. Mars in Aries was ‘fast and furious’ – or just furious whilst it was retrograde! Whilst the long retrograde period gave us time to reassess what we wanted and realign ourselves with our goals, the heat in the atmosphere was palpable. Mars in Taurus is more considered, less impetuous, less impulsive. Now we think (or procrastinate!) before we act. We expend energy on practical issues – money, bills, keeping a roof over our head and food on the table. We get passionate about gardening, addressing the climate emergency or building muscle. Whatever fires us up, remember this is a slow burn. There’s no need to rush. Pace yourself. Also, what was started whilst Mars in Aries, is now given shape and form, made tangible. In any area of life, the message is apply effort consistently if you want to see results. Mars will be in Taurus until March 4, 2021.
