Mars in Taurus’ stubbornly possessive actions will clash with Moon in Aquarius’ equally stubborn need for independence. Taurus will fence Aquarius in, and Aquarius will feel trapped. Both are so set in their ways that it will be difficult for them to reach a compromise. However, if they do find common ground, their combined loyalty can make this relationship a keeper.
Mars in Taurus acts to preserve his security. Once he’s established a relationship, he’ll do everything within his power to ensure that it lasts. And lasts. This makes Mars in Taurus an exceptional partner who can be relied on. As a bonus, he has a steady sex drive and grounded approach to all things physical. But he is also exceptionally stubborn. His lover will have her work cut out for her if she decides she wants something that he doesn’t.
Moon in Aquarius needs a routine, which may surprise some who view this sign as a flaky rebel. Her routine consists of doing her thing, her way, and it will run counter to whatever the accepted practice is. Moon in Aquarius will stick with her partner as long as he allows her to live and love in a manner that makes her comfortable. Intense displays of emotion are not her thing, and she also requires periods of time when she can wander away from the confines of the relationship. She may be out socializing with friends, or enjoying some alone time. But the important thing is that she has the freedom to detach and reconnect when she’s ready.
Mars in Taurus will be frustrated by Aquarius’ need for space. As far as he’s concerned, there’s no reason to venture beyond the cozy confines of the relationship he’s built. Moon in Aquarius will feel trapped by Taurus’ rigid routines and heavy-handed loving. Neither will see any reason to change their ways, and that may be the end of their connection. But if there are stronger contacts between their charts, these two may be able to make it work through sheer determination. Taurus will have to give Aquarius some space, and Aquarius will need to accept that Taurus views her independence as a threat. If they can dial down their instinctive reactions, they’ll have a shot at a long-term union.
