Practical Influences ~ Taurus

When the Moon enters a zodiac sign it adds instinctive reaction, unconscious predestination, sensitivity, emotions, intuition, imagination and emotional depth to influences that are at play; when the Sun enters a zodiac sign it adds vitality, individuality, will-power, creative energy and inspirational action to the influences at play; both affect the energy of our daily lives. Being mindful and calling upon these influences as well as utilising materials associated with them during these phases, will bring you closer to understanding your alchemical journey.

Ruler ~ Venus

The Venus symbol meaning is a combination of the circle and the cross indicating the spiritual and material levels combined. The circle reminds us of the inclusive nature of our universe. Here there is no exclusion, only inclusion. All is welcome, and all is ever-expanding. Spirituality holds hands with this same inclusive concept. The mystic mind never pushes away, but always embraces what is. And, at the base of all inclusion is the vibrating construct of love. The cross talks about nurturing immaterial understanding into the realm of material. It rests beneath the womb (represented by the circle in the Venus symbol). The location of the cross under the circle indicates all matter is birthed from a spiritually inclusive, loving space.

Element ~ Earth

The basis and foundation of all the elements is the Earth. Earth is the element of stability, foundations and of the body. Earth is the realm of wisdom, knowledge, strength, growth and prosperity bringing a sense of duty, responsibility and reliability

Quality ~ Fixed

The role of the Fixed quality is to maintain, uphold and defend positions, responsibilities, goals or desires in everyday situations. The least welcoming of change fixed quality means to preserve tradition  and maintain energy. The fixed quality manifests as being very driven and solid with a predictability that can be counted on.

Notice if there is any tension in your lungs, in your throat, in your ears. Our throat is our creative centre; it is from here that all the powers of self-expression and communication are governed. Are you able to express yourself fully by hearing and processing what others are saying while maintaining a feeling of self-worth in your response or are you sometimes stubborn, over-talkative and self-righteous resulting in others inability to hear and understand you?
