A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Mars in Taurus, so the description given here may change for you if your Mars is although in the sign of Taurus but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Mars can do in Taurus without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Mars represents our will power, courage, ability to take actions, aggressive nature, anger, our fighting ability, brother, male friends, a boy friend for a girl, a soldier, an athlete and real estate etc.
Taurus is the 2nd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 2nd house of horoscope like, Hoarded Wealth, Assets, Savings, Finances, Luxuries and Liquid Money. All in all a sign related with luxuries and all the conveniences of life. Taurus is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras, i.e. Krittika, Rohini and Mrigshira. Also, Taurus' lord is Venus.
So when Mars comes into the sign of Taurus, Mars' energy and action are motivated towards getting those things which are related with Taurus, i.e, Assets, Savings, Luxuries etc. They will work very hard to gain wealth and status in life. If there is a luxurious thing out there in market, they will try their best to achieve that. As Taurus is ruled by Venus, which represents being creative and performing arts, these people will put their best effort in performing at their best of abilities. From here Mars will aspect Leo sign, which is another sign of performing arts and creativity, and energizes that desire to perform. Mars further aspects sign of Scorpio and Sagittarius, one is related with occult studies and other is related with higher studies. So, Mars will make them try their best to achieve these knowledge and attain pleasure from that knowledge. Overall, here Mars is aggressive only to attain pleasures of life.
Now, again the differences will be felt by individuals having this position based on whether Mars is in Krittika Nakshatra, Rohini Nakshatra or Mrigshira Nakshatra. If Mars is in Krittika, then Mars will be impacted by Sun's position as Krittika is Sun's own Nakshatra. If Mars is in Rohini, then it is impacted by Moon's position as Rohini's lord is Moon. If Mars is in Mrigashira, then it is in its own nakshatra.
Also, the quest of hoarding wealth and assets will be successful and satisfactory or not will depend on Venus condition in horoscope, as Venus is lord of Taurus. Overall, whole chart needs to be checked before making any conclusion.
Tomorrow, Mars in Gemini.
