Mars the planet of action, assertion and determination moves into Taurus on Thursday 14 February 2019 NZT.  Your get up and go drive will be moving from a very energetic pace to a now ‘slow and steady wins the race’ kind of pace.  The motivation to be out in nature and smelling the roses, eating delicious foods and being motivated to look your best are all themes that will be relevant while Mars remains in here for the next 6 weeks.  Mars in Taurus is motivated by security in relationships financially and emotionally.  It really is a time to slow the pace of life and enjoy the moment.  This energy helps to sort relationship issues, values and finances.  The flip side to this energy is to watch for becoming very stubborn in getting your own way or being motivated by superficial things rather than getting amongst the more natural earthy side of life.  Look to your Natal chart and see where Taurus rules to get a more specific idea of how this transit will affect you.
