Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Week of March 16, 2009

A large well-kept public park.

For you, the best route is the one that quietly tends to the small things in your life. The issue is fight or flight. Its confusing when at the same time you want to get out there and see what’s happening, you also want your privacy. You are cautious about expressing anything. You’ve looked at things for too long. You have analyzed for too long. You need to just make a quick confrontation to deter adversity and then be on your way. Someone once said, “The real dividing line between things we call work and the things we call leisure is that in leisure, however active we may be, we make our own choices and our own decisions. We feel for the time being that our life is our own.”

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Week of Feb. 2, 2009

A parade of bathing beauties before large beach crowds.

Your best bet this week is to keep things on the down-low. That is to say that you ARE in a position of prominence but you don’t want to flaunt it. Through your commitment you have gotten many agreeable looks and pats on the back Don’t let it go to your head. The quieter you are about carrying out what you aim to the more affect you will have. The issue has to do with being unavailable. Generally the public loves more what they can’t get their hands on. You have to try too hard to say what you are saying. Don’t even try. Very little action will bring you right back into your center. You are returning to a state of being that you know best. Ninon De L’Enclos says, “That which is striking and beautiful is not always good; but that which is good is always beautiful.”

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Week of Jan. 19, 2009

The first mockingbird of spring sings from the tree top.

The issue has to do with force. Your ideas are being actively initiated within an environment of an organized structure. The hesitation is gone and you feel in your gut that new opportunities await you if you can just say the right thing. The biggest obstacle (and its not even really big) is that you don’t really see where to give what you have to offer. Your outlook looks good for this week. Perched in a position of blessings, remember to openly thank and appreciate those who have been good to you. Know how to use your upcoming power wisely by adhering to strict principles and minding the welfare of your environment. Enjoy your good fortune.   Tom Robbins wrote, ” Mockingbirds are the true artists of the bird kingdom. Which is to say, although they’re born with a song of their own, an innate riff that happens to be one of the most versatile of all ornithological expressions, mockingbirds aren’t content to merely play the hand that is dealt them. Like all artists, they are out to rearrange reality.”

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Week of Oct. 27, 2008

Hunters shooting wild ducks.

The central issue for you this week is about flirtation. Despite the fact that your intuition is not in tip-top condition, you push forward with something new. Despite the fact that you teeter between shyness and seriousness, you still try really hard to have a good time. There are many ways to back out of a situation that makes you uncomfortable. However, the main elements include the high road or the low road. I know an elderly southern woman from Kentucky. She is about 83 years old. One day she was going up to her farm, which she often does. Her intentions for going to the farm are a combination of meditative reflection and vigilant protection of her land. I noticed a bible in her hand and something else peculiar. I asked her why she had a bible and a sock. Her reply was, “If I can’t preach my way out, I’m gonna shoot my way out.” Her sock had a pistol in it. Think of your source. Think of what you don’t want in your life. Think about what you do want in your life. Winnie the Pooh once wisely stated, “Before beginning a Hunt, it is wise to ask someone what you are looking for before you begin looking for it.”

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Week of Oct. 13, 2008

Wisps of clouds, like wings, are streaming across the sky.

The issue for you this week is about action. You allow other people to influence you and all the while you keep your passions under wraps and do not say a word. There is not much confidence in your love. Nor is there much love in your confidence. You are tired. If you just say what troubles you, you will be surprised to see that you are supported. It may not be from the people you expect. You may not have much in common with them and they may flit across your sky like clouds on a windy day, but still…… validation will bring you much joy. Serge Kahili King once said, “Revelations are found in clouds.”

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Week of Oct. 6, 2008

World famous pianist giving a concert performance.

The central issue for you this week, Taurus, is about choices. You have special preferences, yet they are vague and unsupported. Your vision is crisp. Your playing is clean and skilled. You send out your various wishes and will them to manifest, creating a musically medley. Pick only the notes that sound beautiful. One bad note and the whole thing goes all wrong. Be straightforward and call out a bad tune when you hear it. Harmony is your best option. Someone once said, “Life is like a piano… what you get out of it depends on how you play it.”

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Week of Sept. 29, 2008

Pelicans, disturbed by the garbage of people move their young to a new habitat.

The central issue is impatience. You are quietly moving things around to affect a change. Inspiration is the driving force. Your energy shows it. Your aura shows it. In fact, you are turning heads. But, you’re not completely sure that you are getting a good response. You are vulnerable, Taurus. And by moving too quickly you are leaving your vulnerabilities exposed. Be cautious. Right now things are at a standstill. Stay where you are and gather perspective. You have a lot to do and you might as well relax before it all gets underway. Soon you will “arrive” and there will be a promotion of your abilities. Robert Redford suggests, “Ideas aren’t real estate, they grow collectively and that knocks out the egotistical loneliness that generally infects art.”
