  7. Mars in Taurus peaceful?I very much disagree. Mars in the sign of the bull.
    Taurus is far too often stereotyped as docile Ferdinand- its part of a somewhat PC New Age approach to astrology that does neither the subject nor the client justice. But like all signs it operates better or less well depending on the planet and aspect.
    Mars is not comfortably placed in Taurus, its in its fall.
