Taurus Moon, Tara Greene astrology

This is the most sensual time of the month. This is the time to slow down and smell the roses, and Do PAMPER yourself and your beloveds. Awaken your senses with aromatherapy oils and incense. Give and receive massages or simply be more touchy in the positive sense. Taurus the Bull is an ancient constellation. In Hinduism Shiva rides a sacred white Bull called Nandi. 

The Symbol of Taurus is the Major Arcana of The POPE #5 of Hierophant or High Priest 

The Hierophant, the POPE, Tara Greene

Taurus, the 2nd sign  is ruled by planet Venus, so all things of beauty, art, romance, music, flowers, fashion, dance, jewellery, pottery especially, landscaping, and money are all attributes of Taurus. 

The Mythological Minotaur was a man with a bull ‘s head and tail { or a man’s head and bull body like a Centaur. The Minotaur, was locked inside a  labyrinth in Knossos Crete to contain him. His original name in Creten, was Asterion, which means the stars. So the name relates to the constellation of Taurus the Bull. 

Taurus relates to our very earthy animal side, which we must honor but also contain. Many of us are so disconnected from our bodies so much these days from sitting in front of computers ,texting and in our heads all day that we need to learn to listen to and use  all of our 6 senses. It takes practice and attention.

It’s a strongly bullish Sunday. Yes I know the stock markets wish it was bullish too.

Moon opposes Mars in Scorpio; stubborness comes to a head. 

Bull Moon sextiles Neptune- easy to be romantic

 and is inconjunct to Saturn in the evening- limitations on travelling. 

DO: Take a walk in nature, meditate on your sensual beauty and enjoy cooking, creating, dancing or singing. Taurus rules the throat. Have a slow day, where you eat, walk, and do things ploddingly. 

If you aren’t usually a stubborn person practice being so. 

Venus Taurus’ ruler squares Jupiter in Virgo a harmonious earth element @ 9:10 pm PST/ Jan 18 @ 12;10 am EST.

TAURUS RITUAL

Work with your root chakra and your throat chakras. Both of these are tied to power. Create an alter with flowers, sweets, earth, crystals, incense.

Taurus metal is COPPER sacred to Venus, use pennies to offer to Venus. 

Crystals: emerald, Rose quartz, carnelian, selenite, cuprite, red jasper, Turquoise. 

Put on some sensual belly dancing music or whatever turns you on and do a dance for Venus and Taurus energy. 

There are three earth trines and one water trine on  Monday.
