Mars in Taurus Horoscope

Mars is the planet of action, war, conquest and masculinity. To know where Mars is in the heavens can help a girl pursue a guy. Every man is catchable; you just have to time it right. Knowing a man's zodiac sign is all that is required of you. Then just consult the position of Mars in the heavens to understand how the interactions down here on earth will be going.

Mars is in Taurus from May 31 through July 11. This is a stubborn position for such an active planet, but it makes some men give in and others commit. The positions of other planets interact with Mars and influence how men are feeling about life, romance and the future. Read his sign below and understand when and how to make your move.

Aries March 21 – April 19

During this forecast period, the Ram is going to be making a lot of money and embracing an unusually hedonistic phase. If you are interested in anything approximating a commitment, you are going to have to wait a few months on your Aries catch. If you just want to hook up with an April-born hunk, though, take a number and he will get to you.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

With Mars in his sign you can bet he is looking to get ahead. Package yourself as the emblem of success and he will be smitten. Don't be too shocked if you find him unusually rigid in his thinking and opinions. His commitment to an ideal, though, bodes well for a committed relationship, so put the focus of conversations there to snare him as quickly as possible, preferably before Mars leaves Taurus on July 11. June 22 is a great day to make the move, as harmony from Saturn to Mars puts him in an easy-going mood.

Gemini May 21 – June 21

Look for the Twin to be ruminating over past and future during this time period and likely unavailable, emotionally, for you to completely capture. If you have been casually dating a Gemini, wait until later in the summer to ask for anything close to a firmer commitment, as his dual nature will be offended by any pressure. On the plus side, he will be very generous to those close to him, so hang out and receive some of his largesse.

Cancer June 22 – July 22

Your dream Cancerian is looking right at you, but his eyes are on the crowd, as he basks in some recent successes. Are you on his arm or among the throng of well-wishers? While Mars is in Taurus, you must spend your time wisely and investigate just who your competition for this man is. After the New Moon in Cancer on June 22, watch his behavior for signs of a new start. This should indicate your chances of making him yours by the end of summer.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Your lovely Lion will be blinded by the possibility of fame and acclaim while Mars is in Taurus. He has been waiting for his moment for at least a year. Perhaps you can make yourself seem to be intertwined in his drama, the prize for all his pain could be your passion. Be careful — the bite of a Lion can bring your heart to him after only one encounter — Mars in Taurus makes the Lion's seductive power even more intense than usual.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

The path to a Virgo's heart while Mars is in Taurus will take you past his appreciation for trivial knowledge and inspired solutions. Since his ruling planet, Mercury, will be just getting out of retrograde when Mars enters the sign of the Bull, involve him in a totally new experience and he will establish you as commander of his base of operations. Take the initiative as early in June as you can, before some other girl does.

Libra September 23 – October 22

If you have your sights set on a Libra man, now is the time to make your move, as his obsession with finding another person will be at a peak. If he is alone, move in quickly. Understand that he will be completely committed in record time, but that you might want to keep your stuff organized for quick packing in late July when he is bound to change his mind. If you want a commitment out of him, make him beg for you in June and reward him only in increments of passion.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Partnership tension is inevitable with the Scorpion while Mars is in the natural partnership section of the zodiac, and for Scorpio that is Taurus. Look to get aggressive to get what you want, but emphasize your loyalty and submissive side if you want him to take you seriously. On June 3, Mars is in harmony with Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio. Make your move as close to this date as possible. It is best if you can get him all to yourself on that day… and into that night!

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

Men born under this sign will be feeling less adventurous than usual while Mars visits Taurus. Is there any reason to doubt their love for you? No, but by July, the tension elsewhere in the lives of these men will manifest as a world-class grouchiness from which you might want to steer clear. July 6 sees Mars get tense with Jupiter, the ruling planet of this sign, causing too much friction for partners pushing too hard.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

If you have your sights set on a Capricorn man, June is the time to sink your teeth in. He will be looking for a relationship, especially one that highlights romance and a chance to treat a girl well. The sign of the Goat is notoriously status-conscious, so try to mimic his dress and get to understand his social circle. If you are a quick study, you could be looking at a long-term relationship. Saturn rules Capricorn and harmony from Mars on June 22 makes him much more receptive to your suggestions about passion.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

The full moon after midnight, July 7 also features harmony in the heavens between Mars and the ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus. Make the most of this chance to get with a creative Aquarian man. Remember that Mars is the planet of action, and that being bold is favored. Embrace his need to be adored first and the commitment will arrive soon after.

Pisces February 19 – March 20

Tension with a Fish is likely around July 6, as Mars and Neptune clash. Neptune is the planet that rules dreamy Pisces and someone will be pressuring a Pisces man to get his act together and join the real world. If you are there to tell him how much you support his otherworldly ways, it is more likely that he will fall hard for you than for the person nagging him to conform to society's artificial demands.
