Mars Storms Taurus

When it was just the sun and dainty Venus, the cosmic gathering in Taurus was a tea party. Today, alpha-male Mars joins the group, and things turn more biker bar or mosh pit in tone. All in the name of good fun! The playful Leo moon promises opportunities for creativity, as well as drama. Tomorrow, there will be plenty of cleaning up to do.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). To the Great Horned Owl, a skunk is a treat, not a threat, because these birds have no sense of smell. Today will bring a similarly fortuitous arrangement in which a deficit will allow for something fortifying.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If only there were an explanation as to why someone is behaving a certain way. Wait, there is! And discovering it will give you the keys to a better relationship, to getting what you want out of the deal, or both.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In order to feel like the trendsetter you are, you need novelty and fresh fodder. After all, what is a trendsetter to do without potential candidates for the next hot thing?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Ask any restaurant hostess in charge of managing and seating the Saturday night crowd: Hunger makes people grumpy. With the Taurus sun comes an appetite. Don’t let yourself get too hungry!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The moon activates your playful nature, and you could even be a part of a performance on stage. But actually, you don’t need a stage to give an applause-winning performance.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll reach out to the confused or misguided people around you. You sense what others are missing and fill in the blanks for them. Your talents bless those with whom you share them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Loved ones know that they are better off working with you than resisting your wishes. So even if they don’t want the same things, they will likely try to support your endeavors.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). At times, you’ll feel overwhelmed by your empathy for others. Part of you believes that if you feel some of their pain, they won’t have to. The truth of this is yet to be proved.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re on a hunt for the winning formula that will bring your desired result to hand. Keep arranging and rearranging the elements until you strike upon the solution.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Not succeeding at a new task is far more satisfying than succeeding at a task you’ve already mastered. Others may be happy when you take the known road, but you’re not in charge of the happiness of others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re in a trusting mood and are open to surprises, too. You may even let someone else order for you just for the adventure of it, or you might pick up your phone without first checking the Caller ID.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You get the feeling that expressing every annoyance you feel will become tedious for the listener. So you’re selective. You only talk about things you think the other person will relate to. You’re a social genius in the making.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 20). You have tremendous powers of discipline at your disposal. A prize in June comes about because you systematically follow a method. You’ll gain political favor in May within a family arena or in a professional context. You’ll travel inexpensively in June and August. Make your move in September — an investment will pay off. Gemini and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 39, 44 and 1.

MARS IN TAURUS: The warrior planet is reluctant to leave Aries, where his powers are activated in full force. He knows that the intensity will have to be toned down and impulses must be controlled. The realm of Taurus isn’t a favorite position for his alpha-male energy, and yet there’s a charm in seeing him there akin to seeing Dwayne Johnson in a tooth fairy costume.

So what can we expect with the engine of Mars chugging through the second sign of the zodiac? The financial world will be energized for starters, and there will be a sudden flurry of activity. Hard work will be necessary to meet new demands. Taurus gives Mars stamina and helps establish a well-paced and productive rhythm.

Mars in Taurus also will be a heavy appetite stimulant, but not necessarily for food. When Mars is in Taurus, he wants manly items like heavy-duty tools, vehicles to emphasize his power and speed, and relationships that maximize his identity as a virile force in the world. Men and women alike may find themselves craving big-dollar items and in many cases doing the work necessary to obtain them, too.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Taurus natives are known for their staying power, and gorgeous Jessica Lange proves the point, having graced the silver screen with her talents consistently since she first sat on the open palm of King Kong in the mid-seventies. In the upcoming thriller “Therese,” Lange will star opposite Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” series.
