Today the planet Mars will transit into Taurus. Mars’ transit can last been between six weeks and two months. So there are profound and long-term cosmic consequences when Mars alters its sign position.
Additionally we have a very different position for Mars, which has just entered Aries.
What you can immediately notice is how much calmer you may feel today.
And also expect to be more alert to fine details and able to achieve consistency.
However, Mars in Taurus presents challenges as well as opportunities, warns MarStars astrologer Marina Stoichkova.

Ms Stoichkova said: “You can expect to procrastinate today, so it might be difficult to start tasks.
“Your main motivation today is to take action, and this might be especially challenging when Mars is in Taurus.
“On the positive side, however, achieving consistency will be easy once this action is started.
“So today’s challenge is to find the strength, motivation and desire to make that all-important first step.”

The Mars in Taurus astrological aspect also bares well for financial projects.
And those with the Sun ascendent in the Earth signs can really feel empowered throughout the next two month period.
These signs are Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus, of course.
You could well feel more motivated, braver and increasingly willing to do something.
However, MarStars astrologer Marina Stoichkova cautions being focussed on achieving concrete results is vital for productivity today.
The astrologer said: “For Mars in the earth signs it is very important to have a concrete goal.
“Mars creates a strong urge to take action, but when Mars is in these Earth signs, people instead reflect on the action’s purpose.
“So finding something meaningful to do is what will really motivate you, especially in relation to business and financial transactions.”

Mars will also make a semi-square with the planet Neptune today.
This aspect also means we should display a little more caution.
You may feel a little unmotivated or easily distracted, so make sure you double-check tasks for accuracy.
And this may also be a time for slowing down and relaxing a little.
When Neptune has this challenging aspect, it is occasionally important to make more time for yourself.

And there is another minor aspect in store for you today: a semi-square between Mercury and Pluto.
This also presents challenges today, requiring us to take additional care when communicating with others.
Ms Stoichkova said: “We should be aware of exactly how we express ourselves verbally and how we treat others.
“Pluto’s influence even has the power to cause confrontations or power struggles.
“On the positive side, this aspect has the power to increase concentration on ideas or plans.”
The Moon is in the Gemini star sign today, the communication and connections with others.
So today is a great time learn something new, to collaborate and deal with information.
