How To Tell If a Mars in Taurus Man or Woman Is Into You

Mars in Taurus is not obvious about his or her attraction, at first. There’s a waiting period, and you may end up assuming that Taurus is simply not that into you. But before you give up and walk away, know that Mars in Taurus is not playing games. Your patience may be rewarded with a steadfast lover who makes pleasure their top priority.

The Evaluation Phase

Mars in Taurus zeros in on who is best for her, and whose values are most complementary to hers. But even if she thinks you’re the hottest thing ever, she’s not likely to chase after you right away. Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign, which means she’s cautious, and concerned with survival and personal resources. She’ll take some time to evaluate you and ensure that you’re available. She’s not a risk-taker, and she’s not going to disrupt her comfortable life with someone who doesn’t want what she wants. Therefore, she may have her eye on you for quite awhile before she makes her move.

While Taurus is in his evaluation phase, the absolute worst thing you can do is push. It’s fine to signal your interest (it’s advisable, actually) but do it once and leave it at that. Despite his self-contained vibe, he’s not oblivious, and he’ll pick up on your signals. A guaranteed way to shut him down is to continually fire invitations at him, or pester him with texts/emails. This is not a case of him being shy and needing an aggressive partner to make the first move. Let him know he stands a chance with you, and then allow him to take control. That means waiting until he decides he’s ready. If you try to take that control away, he will shut you out for good. At this juncture, you’re probably thinking, “Why should I wait? I don’t have time for this!” If that’s your attitude, then Mars in Taurus is not the lover for you. You will always be waiting for him. Things move at his pace, or they don’t move at all.

  1. My ex had hus Moon and Jupiter in Taurus (8H) and the above applied verbatim to him. And with my progressed Moon currently in Taurus (conjunct my natal Jupiter/progressed Jupiter until November), the above also applies to me.

    Taurus is a magnificent sign when it comes to cultivating a strong sense of self-worth. It also teaches you to hold out for the absolute best you believe you deserve (and perhaps even elevates your status). All eyes on you, Mr Clooney.

  2. What about when a man’s mars in taurus is opposite pluto in scorpio?

    I have dated two with these placements & both with Mars in 4th opp Pluto in 10th

    Hi, Nadia! I love this post!
    Of course, I am a Mars in Taurus woman. but I meet also some Mars in Taurus men.
    Very truth what you said here.
    I really wish people knew more about astrology and it’s own signs (and natal charts). Life would be so much simpler!

  4. @Tessa
    Mr. Clooney is a fine example. 🙂 Although technically he has Mars in Leo, he’s still a wonderful personification of male Taurus energy.

  5. @Glitter
    Pluto amplifies Mars in Taurus’ controlling tendencies. Sex and possession can take on life or death undertones (in the heart of the Mars person).

  6. @Ana Oliveira
    thanks! 🙂

  7. @nadia, i mean within their natal chart, not synastry

  8. Great article! Charlize Theron has Mars in Taurus and I am not at all sure that her choice of womanizing/divorcee Sean Penn is in her best interests. I guess that’s why you have to add up all the elements.

  9. @Glitter
    That’s what I meant as well.

  10. @Anna
    And I’m not sure that anyone except Charlize knows what’s in her best interests. 🙂

  11. As an Aries Sun woman with a strong Mars-Mercury-Moon stellium in the V house, growing up in Italy surrounded by wannabe machos was both nerve-wrecking and hilarious. I moved out of the country as soon as I could and I’m considering moving to Scandinavia. I just can’t stand being chirpsed !!

  12. Stellium and V house in Taurus, of course 🙂

  13. Tim Seekins says:

    Wow, this is so true about me. Very insightful.

  14. Hi,

    This description is myself completely. I’m a Female Taurus Sun and Venus, Mars and Mercury in Gemini, Ascendent Leo, ACS Node in Aries, Moon in Pisces.

    If I’m rushed; I stay away from u and never look back, to include if u try and take control of me, or tell me what I can and can’t do. I do allot of analysis and/or evaluations of people, and like to take my time in getting to know someone, or considering a relationship. I take things extremely slow and I’m not one to rush into anything.
