Mars in Aries, Moon in Taurus Compatibility

There’s a tense mix of raw power and stoic determination in this union. Mars in Aries’ spontaneous actions will be forcefully slowed when he meets Moon in Taurus’ inner stability. He may be invigorated by the challenge, continually buffeting her with his attentions. But if she doesn’t respond quickly enough, he’ll give up and charge off in another direction.

Mars in Aries is the conquerer. He has no difficulties jumping into the fray and pursuing someone, and responds even better when his victory doesn’t come easily. Mars in Aries needs to prove himself, but his partner will discover that he needs to prove himself over and over again. If his victory is ever completely assured, he’ll get bored. But if his victory is too difficult to attain, this Cardinal sign will become impatient and go where he can get quicker results.

Moon in Taurus has no need to conquer; she’s quite happy settling into a comfortable life. Here is the patient lover who is in her relationship for the long haul. Emotionally, she’s warm and consistent, but possessive, expressing her need for survival by hanging onto what she has for dear life. But despite her basic needs (comfort, sensuality and stability) Moon in Taurus is a ferociously strong partner, with a stubborn resistance to change that is unrivalled by any other sign. Her lover will discover that attempting to push her in any direction is fruitless.

Moon in Taurus will sit calmly while Mars in Aries flings himself at her. If she’s interested, she’ll gradually let him in. If she’s not interested, she’ll shut down and there will be nothing he can do to convince her otherwise. How quickly she lets him in will depend on other factors in their charts, but Aries may give up and move on if she takes too long to get comfortable with his advances. If these two do get together, Moon in Taurus will be the rock that keeps Aries grounded, although he’ll have to find other outlets for his energy once he gets bored with her domestic routines.

  1. I totally understand that Aries is the starting point for astrology, but just once I wish somebody would start at Pisces and work backwards. Everything in my chart except Jupiter in Aries starts from Virgo and on and that’s just my moon, my mars isn’t til Sagittarius and everything else falls in-between Scorpio and Pisces. Patience is clearly not my strong suit lol

  2. well think how hard it would be for Aries to wait
