Mars in Taurus through the houses   Leave a comment

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus but with Mars in Taurus the two meet half way.  Traditional we have been conditioned to accept Mars energy as Male and Venus energy as female but we have always been both.  Here females may express the Venus side of Mars in Taurus, desire for nice surroundings and enjoyment of luxury and pampering much easier than the muscular Taurean bull they also possess.  With men they may be more comfortable with their Taurean bull side than the Venus connection to all things sensuous and sensual. Both sexes contain equal amounts of both these energies.

The Great Golden Bull of heaven presided over the spring Equinox in ancient times and thus was the symbol along with Inanna (Venus) of fertility and renewal of the earth.  The auroch a wild bull was worshipped in ancient times for its strength and wild spirit, the animal could not be tamed or conquered and its horns were sacred and may have been used to symbolise virility, this extinct animal may be the foundation of some of the unicorn myths and is most probably the unicorn mentioned in the bible.  The unicorn is renowned for its healing properties, strength, wildness and attraction to virgins (Virgo the another fertile earth sign).  Whether you see yourself as the virile, wild and untamable auroch or the more gentle Unicorn you have a magic all of your own.

And gradually she lost her fear, and he

Offered his breast for her virgin caresses,

His horns for her to wind with chains of flowers

Until the princess dared to mount his back

Her pet bull’s back, unwitting whom she rode.

Then—slowly, slowly down the broad, dry beach—

First in the shallow waves the great god set

His spurious hooves, then sauntered further out

’til in the open sea he bore his prize

Fear filled her heart as, gazing back, she saw

The fast receding sands.

Her right hand grasped A horn, the other lent upon his back

Her fluttering tunic floated in the breeze. – Ovid  ‘Metamorphosis’


Hadad the Ugaritic God was symbolised by a bull, Ba‘al/Hadad is the lord of the sky who governs the rain and thus the germination of plants with the power of his desire that they be fertile.

Mars in Taurus has an earthy sensuality, not just relating to sex but to all things physical; smell, taste, touch, aesthetic beauty and music.  They are connoisseurs of all things fine.  They are also head-strong, stubborn and extremely hard-working.  The bull has broad shoulders on which to push head on in the most trialling of times.  The bull is also a beast of burden and can use its strength to protect the weakest in society and help carry their loads.
