Mars, the planet of action, ambition and desires has moved into the fixed, grounded sign of Taurus. After Mars had its chaotic run in Aries, the energy of Taurus will cause a shift — forcing us to slow down. We can’t talk about how Mars moving into Taurus will impact us all without noting Taurus’ planetary ruler — Venus.

Just about five years ago, I’m pretty sure I couldn’t tell you what the term wellness means or what exactly it encompasses. Today, the word is highlighted in almost all conversations with friends and colleagues and its even the…
