Your 2024 Mars in Taurus Horoscope: What’s in Store for You From June 9 to July 20

Discover what this planetary shift means for your sign.


It’s time to prepare for a total energy shift, especially in terms of how you pursue your goals, manage your anger, and express your passions, thanks to the planet of action, Mars moving into Taurus. Over the last few weeks, it’s possible you’ve been feeling more fired up — the result of Mars moving through one of its home signs, cardinal fire sign Aries, known for its impulsivity, dynamism, assertiveness and burning desire to perpetually come out on top. But Mars entering Taurus, which occurs on Sunday, June 9 at 12:35 a.m. ET/Saturday, June 8 at 9:35 p.m. PT, marks a new chapter in which your fuse could be longer as you focus on moving toward your aspirations in a far more deliberate, slow and steady manner. 

Here, all you need to know in order to make the most of Mars’ 2024 trip through Taurus.

What does Mars in Taurus mean?

Mars, the go-getter planet, oversees passion, sex, action, inner drive, courage, anger, motivation and self-assertion, and the last time it moved through Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac symbolized by the Bull, was back in summer 2022. That’s because it takes about two years to make its way through the zodiac. So, to understand how Mars expresses itself in Taurus, you could think back to what life looked like between July 5 to August 20, 2022. You might also consider the Bull’s ruler, Venus, which oversees relationships, beauty, values and money. In turn, Taurus is pleasure-seeking, luxury-loving and invested in nurturing not only their bonds but their sense of security and assets. 

People born with a strong Taurus influence tend to be loyal, dependable, tenacious, grounded and have a long fuse. And given that Taurus is one of the more resolute, albeit stubborn, fixed signs (the others are Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius), they’re apt to dig their heels in more, too. 

All of this is worth holding in mind as you think about how we’ll all be more apt to move through our most passionate emotions while Mars is in Taurus. We might also be more inclined to focus on goals that center around earning, paying down debt, setting up a budget and tending to or acquiring material possessions, given that Taurus is associated with the Second House of Income. This is also the sector of self-worth, so that’s a theme that could take on a feature role over the next until Mars leaves Taurus on July 20. You could find that losing your cool is more intimately tied to feeling undervalued — by yourself or others. And either getting into a conflict or feeling motivated could be fueled by your personal values, which is another Second House theme. 

What can you expect during Mars’ 2024 trip through Taurus

Although Mars moves through Taurus approximately every two years, all the planets move at different rates through the zodiac, so the action-oriented planet’s link-ups with other celestial bodies change annually. A couple key moments: 

Mars square Pluto

In 2024, soon after moving into the sign of the Bull, on Tuesday, June 11, Mars will form a tense square to Pluto, the planet of transformation and regeneration, in fellow fixed sign Aquarius, bolstering your desire to go to bat to take control and amplifying the potential for power struggles. Because this square is happening in two signs that are known to tend toward obstinacy, doing your best to infuse the moment with a bit more flexibility could prevent unnecessary fireworks.

Mars conjunct Uranus 

On Monday, July 15, Mars links up to game-changer Uranus in Taurus, which can set off unexpected, aggressive developments as a result of you or others attempting to break out of a rut. You might want to strike out on your own, assert your independence, or move in a whole new direction out of the blue.
