Mars exits new beginnings Aries today and sets up shop in stable, persistent Taurus the Bull (5:51 am), where it will remain until March 31st. In Taurus, Mars energy is softened, a bit, as this sign is ruled by sweet, receptive Venus. Whereas Mars in Aries was also all about doing, initiating, and exploring, Mars in Taurus now is centered on beingness, rootedness, and acquisition. Mars learns patience and purposefulness in Taurus and, likewise, we are more apt to want to take our time now in executing matters, and do not want to be rushed. We also want to first understand the tangible value of doing something before we commit to doing it. Mars in Taurus now is an excellent time for putting the finishing touches on the projects that we began while Mars was in Aries, although today, with Mars making a semi-square with vague Neptune, we may potentially have a somewhat harder time getting motivated, or staying on track. Sometimes, too, with Mars-Neptune alignments, our physical energy is somewhat diminished so getting more rest may be something that is very beneficial for us now. Additionally, Mercury in Pisces is forming a semi-square to Pluto in Capricorn today. This can help to mentally focus our thoughts in a particular direction. The waxing Moon is also in curious Gemini, all day, and squaring expansive Jupiter in Sagittarius, so there can be an increased desire for learning or seeking out new information, new horizons.

On This Day in History: On February 14, 1931, The original “Dracula” film starring Bela Lugosi as the titular vampire, is released. On that day, pioneering Mars was retrograde at 0 degrees of theatrical Leo! Bela Lugosi (b. 10/20/1882) also had, in his horoscope, transiting Saturn in Capricorn exactly trine to his natal Neptune in Taurus, a powerful planetary configuration for manifesting (Saturn) our dreams (Neptune). Neptune also rules film. By the way, natally, Lugosi’s assertive Mars was also in passionate, mysterious Scorpio, the sign of death and rebirth.
