TAURUS – 2016

Apr 17, 2016 | Monthly Astrology


I am blessed and have everything I need.


As we all experience the Full Moon is Scorpio,
old habits are ripped away and a new life begins!

Meditation for MAY 2016


Now withdraw into the center of your heart. Meditate on the perfect pink petunia. This beautiful spring flower lies at the temple of your heart. It’s petals are opening to the sun – every petal gleaming and glowing with the light. There is an ineffable light in the heart of the petunia.

Become enfolded within these petals, in a soft pearly light. You are within the temple of the tulip, the Sun pours down into the heart…opening up the doorway to all empowering, unconditional Love. You are a part of this radiance and one with all of humanity, within the heart of the petunia.

Think of Spirit, and meditate on the pink petunia, one of the first flowers of Spring. You are looking at this Tulip from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart, as is Spirit, always!  There is a light within the heart as well music coming to you from the petunia, the flower of Promise. The light from above and the light from within the petunia blend as one…as you swoon into the bliss of Divine Love.

May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.


The SUN has entered TAURUS

Earthy and fixed Solar TAURUS,  sets you in rhythm with all that is stable and steadfast. This is a good time to promote productivity in the realms of personal finance, artistic ingenuity, and animal care-taking. Put your head, heart and hands into meaningful creative work and self-assurance will follow. Symbolized by the Bull, Taurus offers tenacity enhanced by patience. By forsaking laziness, lethargy, and obstinacy, you can reap the rewards of discipline and structure. Above all, break free from attachment to external material possessions by focusing on your inner beauty. Be an advocate for graceful simplicity.

Think green, gold and glitter as Jupiter travels through your 5th House this year, Taurus. This fortunate period, which happens only once every twelve years, ups your creativity, romance, and risky deals. Your paycheck could double, or you could receive an inheritance, a lottery or contest win, a windfall or settlement, or a gift from a relative. Curb the urge to use your credit; instead save up and pay cash for your big ticket items. If you plan to purchase a new home, shop around for the best mortgage rate and be sure to seal the deal before September’s end. Just don’t gamble or spend money foolishly. (But then, you rarely do.)

Chance encounters and networking can trigger romantic opportunities. If you are looking for a new partner or strengthening an ongoing relationship, 2016 promises to be a year to remember. The more you pay attention to subtle comments and shifts, the better prepared you’ll be able to act when the time is right!




Water — That Which Conducts

The water of life flows
carving secret pathways
through the world

The urge toward unconsciousness, toward the past and immersion in the flow of feeling, toward the Mother, the womb’s security – all of this is inherent within the Laguz rune. Unseen powers are active here. The creative and fertile powers of nature. The attributes of Laguz are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, careers and relationships. It fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, the lunar side of our nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.

This Rune of the Flow signifies a time for cleansing, for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of knowing and psychic power, it may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for deep self-transformation. For a man, success now lies in contacting his intuitive knowing; for a woman, in attuning to her own rhythms. A Rune of the self relating rightly to the Higher-Self, it signifies what the alchemists called the conjunction, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.


Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

SNAKE, come crawling,
There is fire in your eyes.
Bite me, excite me,
I’ll learn to realize,

The poison transmuted,
Brings eternal flame.
Open me to heaven,
to heal me again.

Snake medicine is very rare. This initiation involves experiencing and living through multiple snake bites, which allows one to transmute all poisons, be they mental, physical, spiritual, or emotional. The power of snake medicine is the power of creation, for it embodies sexuality, psychic energy, alchemy, reproduction and ascension.

The transmutation of the life-death-rebirth cycle is exemplified by the shedding of Snake’s skin. It is the energy of wholeness, cosmic consciousness, and the ability to experience anything willingly and without resistance. It is the knowledge that all things are equal in creation, and that those things which might be experienced as poison can be eaten, ingested, integrated, and transmuted if one has the proper state of mind. Thoth, the Atlantian, who later returned as Hermes and was the Father of Alchemy , used the symbology of two snakes intertwining around a sword to represent healing. Complete understanding and acceptance of the male and female energies within each organism creates a melding of the two into one, thereby producing divine energy

Snake medicine teaches you on a personal level that you are a divine being. Through accepting all aspects of your life, you can bring about the transmutation of fire medicine. This fire energy, when functioning on the material plane, creates passion, desire, procreation, and physical vitality. On the emotional plane it becomes ambition, creation, resolution, and dreams. On the mental plane it becomes intellect, power, charisma, and leadership. When this snake energy reaches the spiritual plane, it becomes wisdom, understanding, wholeness, and connection to the Great Spirit. May, 2016 represents the symbol of the Snake Medicine.  It is time to transmute some thought, action, or desire so that wholeness may be achieved. This is a heavy magic, but remember, magic is no more than a change in consciousness. Become the Magician of the Enchantress – transmute this energy and accept the power of its Fire.

TAURUS: Polarity: FEMININE  Sign: FIXED – Element: EARTH – Planetary Rule: 2nd House /Venus – The Throat, Ears  FOCUS: I am a loyal and sensual household maintainer


The Personal Signs:

Aries Ram ARIES (3/21-4/20)
Although you like activity and fireworks, Aries, May brings a quiet time. You need to watch your personal finances and other money matters this month. You could need to get your financial paperwork together to make a large purchase or work out a deal. Now don’t get bored, just wait awhile.

Taurus Bull TAURUS (4/21-5/21)

May is a party month for you Taurus. You are famous for love, physical delights, and creature comforts. If single, some delectable new admirers could cross your path. You could also receive a very tempting job opportunity.

Gemini Twins GEMINI (5/21-6/20)

May brings a family gathering. Have everyone over to your place and break out the barbeque. You are quite sociable now, so turn on the charm and charisma. Opportunities to earn some real cash will abound. It’s also a time to handle legal and inheritance issues.

Cancer Crab CANCER (6/21-7/22)

May is a fruitful and comfortable month, Cancer, bringing along lots of opportunities for making new friendships. You can count on them being the kind that last. Arguments about money matters could come at month’s end. If you’ve been stewing about someone’s lack of responsibility, you won’t stew much longer. You’ll put your foot down, and none too soon.

Leo Lion LEO (7/23-8/22)

May is a time when you will attract money, leverage, and career without even trying. If you’re thinking of making a career change, go over your options now. A friend you haven’t seen in a long time could make an appearance just as Mercury turns direct on the 22nd. Watch your overspending and overindulgence at month’s end.

Virco Virgin VIRGO (8/23-9/22)

May puts you in the travel mood, Virgo. If you haven’t made time yet, better get with it. Do yourself a favor though, and don’t plan to travel over the Memorial Day Weekend. Battle and tensions make it a difficult time for you. Luckily, it’s only temporary.

LibraLIBRA (9/23-10/22)

If you had to juggle your time last month, both business and personal matters will go along smoothly now, as you get back to normal. If you’re involved with someone, you both enjoy rediscovering the flame that brought you together. If you’re thinking about making an investment or taking out a business loan, best to wait after late June, as Mercury goes retrograde in late May.

Scorpio Eagle SCORPIO (10/23-11/22)

Late May could be a bit troublesome for you Scorpios when it comes to finances. If you haven’t put yourself on a budget, you may need to, especially over the Memorial Day Weekend. Begin to tuck your pennies aside for a rainy day. Love brings tenderness and lots of private time.

Sagittarius Archer SAGITTARIUS (11/23-12/21)

May brings the excuse to indulge a bit — fine wine, rich food, and designer clothes. You’ve been working hard, so enjoy this down time. With lovers and friends, expect all kinds of fun and new activities. Career puts you in the right place at the right time, where you meet others who can put you where you want to be.

Capricor Goat CAPRICORN (12/22-1/19)

May is a great month to be you, Capricorn. Well, you may not be able to relax all that much, but you’ll certainly enjoy some wonderful, warm evenings wrapped up in the arms of one you love. You feel stable and solid. Nicely done!

Aquarius Water-bearer  AQUARIUS (1/20-2/18)

May wants you to kick back and enjoy life a bit, Aquarius. Do yourself a favor and try to stay away from the computer and phones for a few days. If you’re unattached, you could run into someone quite interesting and intelligent, which has to come first in your book. You need to get some new friends with actual opinions, and have some fun and sharing.

Pices FishesPISCES (2/19-3/20)

A vacation by the ocean or at some cabin on a lake in the mountains is ideal for May, Pisces. A pool will do in a pinch, and if you’re feeling extravagant, how about a cruise? The parade is about to begin, Pisces, so get yourself a front seat and be prepared to be presented with several choices. If you’ve been meeting with a whole lot of folk lately, it’s because they want to get to know you better. Stress comes with your partner at month’s end because they want more of your time.
