The sign of Taurusis associated with work, but at the same time with luxuryand pleasure. What is the connection? How does the word Work sound to you? How does it make you feel?
If you can’t relate the idea of ‘getting things done’ to the sensation of pleasure, or if you find pleasure in working life but want to know what’s the astrological catch, contemplate on Taurus through its squares – Leoand Aquarius. The ones that think differently will help you see more clearly.
Leo, the sign of hobbies, play and creativity, and Aquarius, the humanitarian soul that wishes to be of service to the community. They both remind Tauruswhy he does what he does. For himself, for his own pleasure, and to be of service to others.
Doesn’t that make you feel better already? The joy of work is depicted in the 3 of Disks (Pentacles, Coins), so take a look at that card to inspire your thoughts. In the video, I get hooked up on joy and I go through all the Threes – yes, my work is my pleasure, let me enjoy 😀
Also, you can look at Scorpio, the complementary sign to Taurus, the one that brings balance. Scorpio is talking about boundaries, and it might help you when you explore the idea of exhausting yourself, overworking, crossing your limits and limitations. Always keep yourself healthy and safe, no matter how much the Leoin you wants to create.
Sexual energy is creative energy, so let’s talk to the creators of the zodiac, Fire signs!
By exploring the fire signs of Aries, Leoand Sagittariuswe gain insight into our creative, sexual nature.
In the Minor Arcana of the Tarot, the suit of Wands can describe in more detail the stages of development of Fire.
To feel the energy of Ariesmore deeply, take a look at the 2, 3 and 4 of Wands.
To connect to Leo explore 5, 6 and 7 of Wands.
To feel Sagittarius examine 8, 9 and 10 of Wands.
In the Major Arcana, I explored The Emperor to feel Aries, Strengthto examine Leo, and Temperance and The Wheel of Fortune to explore Sagittarius (The Wheel of Fortune is associated with Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, and it did provide very useful insight).
My thoughts you can find in the video, yours – in your own brilliant mind!
When you want to gain more understanding about a particular sign, take a look at the complementary sign, the squaring signs and the trines.
Complementary signs are the opposite poles of the same story, and they work together to create a harmonious whole. For Aries, it is Libra.
The squaring signs have a different motivation, they are in conflict. Through their interaction, squaring signs refine their actions and grow through adversity, through difficulty, through restriction. For Aries, we have Cancerand Capricorn.
The trines are the signs of the same element, and those are the signs that understand each other and get along. They depict three stages of development – Initiation, Sustaining, Change. Like three friends working on a project, each one fulfilling a task. And since they are so similar, we compare their expression to get to know each of them in more detail. For Aries, we have the fire signs Sagittarius and Leo.
Take a look at Aries and Libra– What story do they share? How do they help each other stay in balance?
Take a look at Cancerand Capricorn– How do they differ from Aries? What is their motivation that makes them so different? And how do they help Aries stay in balance?
Examine Leoand Sagittarius– What does Fire want to express in those signs? How is it different from Aries?
I wanted to look into the suit of Swords and see how can we convey the messages of Air with a little more compassion. We tend to be hard on ourselves when our Mind runs free, disconnected from the Heart. Then our emotional self holds resentment towards the Mind, we don’t trust it anymore and we refuse to even think. But to stop using our Minds is never a good idea. We are our Mind, as much as we are our Emotions. They are equally important, equally valuable.
So let’s bring some love back to the cold winds of Truth. Let’s fly back to serenity.
But you Aries, go, have fun. Go, and don’t look back. You are running to that place you came from anyway. Run, go ahead, there is nothing to lose. All that you had at the Beginning is waiting for you in the End.
Don’t get distracted by the ups and downs. You are bouncing around a straight line, you are not losing your way. The path you chose in the Beginning is the path that leads you to the End.
Bounce, have fun. Go up and down. Just take a moment, here and there, to stop, calm down, and walk the line. Every now and then, walk the line, so you remember that you are in alignment. You always were, you always will be.
Now go! Bounce!
Have your ups and downs, before the line dissolves, and becomes the Ocean. Before you turn into a drop, a wave, the Infinte Waters.
The determination to succeed and the firm belief that all is possible are at the core of Arian energy.
It is the energy of a warrior that storms into the unknown with the intent to bring forth new creation. He himself won’t create, but he will set the blueprint for creation. He will call in the forces of nature and start the process with his call. He will perish, but his creation will unfold. He won’t live to see the manifestation, but in the manifestation, we will be able to recognize him.
The wild, ludicrous calls to action will now make sense, when the seed has sprouted. The madness will look like courage, the primal screams will sound like Love.
Take a moment and honor your Aries life phases. The times when no one believed in you, but you decided to believe in yourself. When you were the loudest one, pushing those around you forward, because you believed in them, even though they didn’t believe in themselves. When you chose to go in a new direction, completely unknown and unexplored. When you decided to be deaf to fear based murmurs, when you decided to listen to nobody but yourself, when you decided to follow nothing but the call of your heart.
Take a breath and honor yourself for your most courageous moments, for your most loving starts.
My journey is not a straight line, there is so much on this Earth to explore! I know I am on the road back to my Beginning, so why not enjoy? Why not experience all that I can experience?
My Beginning is waiting for me, there, at the End. So I won’t rush. I know my Beginning, I am very well acquainted with the End. But the Middle?
Ah, the juicy, unexplored world in between. The unknown, the unseen. There is no time to waste, since there is no time. And there are no moments that can be missed, because we are the ones who create moments, as we please.
My moments I will create by going far out to one side, then slide back to the other. No straight line for me. Oh no! There are so many moments to be explored! So, zig – zag I go!
