The 2024 Mars in Taurus Transit Can Raise Stress Levels—Here’s How to Cope

Pick up the pace, but watch your speed! When motivator Mars charges into sensible Taurus, expect a boost of productive energy, but beware of a spike in stress levels. Here’s your horoscope for how to get through the Mars in Taurus transit (June 9 to July 20) without frayed nerves!

Get ready to tackle your to-do lists, and with a good head on your shoulders, thanks to routine-loving Taurus parking in energetic Mars for about six weeks.

But watch your pressure gauges. Mars can ratchet up stress levels. Soothe anxiety during the Mars in Taurus transit by slowing down and savoring simple pleasures like art, music and nature.

If some extra funds happen to land in your bank account

Treat yourself to a luxurious but practical splurge. Taurus favors fine things, but they have to be “worth it.” This isn’t a good time for impulse purchases, unless you want to find yourself boxing up a return because of a healthy dose of buyer’s remorse. Instead, analyze where your money is coming-and-going, and make some feel-good adjustments for the future. Pay off a small balance bill. Sift through your monthly subscription fees and cancel the ones you aren’t using.

Slow and sensual wins the race in your love life, too

Set the mood and enjoy some sweet affection. Taurus is the sign of traditional courtship gestures, but with impatient Mars hitting the gas, relationships may quickly accelerate into serious status! Combative Mars in headstrong Taurus can lead to formidable fights where nobody backs down willingly. Of course, the sparks you set off with marathon makeup-sex could be (almost) worth the trouble.

Where will Mars be in 2024?

Mars is also the last of the personal inner planets—the planets before Jupiter which are closest to the Sun. The red planet hangs out in a zodiac sign for approximately 6-8 weeks, directing the global temperament and fighting style. Lusty Mars is the forthright companion to seductive Venus and can bring out the “cosmic cave(wo)man” in us all. Our raw desire is on display during certain Mars cycles, while other zodiac signs provoke a more discreet style of pursuit.
