The Taurus Bull


Establishing appropriate boundaries is my mission!

Plan on some fabulous new beginnings ahead.

We may never be remembered for doing great, great things in life, but if we do all little things with Love, we will never be forgotten by a few, and will be remembered with warmth and a smile.

—EAJ 9/19/98


Every heartbeat is God’s name to me. Every breath of life is ecstasy. Every night is bliss and I awaken in your company. Then dawn plays a symphony revealing to me my personal reality. Every life is a living God to me. Every thing is an expression of God’s personality. Every kiss is God’s romance and every love is embedded in God’s originality.

I hear, breathe, sing and speak of God. Each day your plan reveals it’s universal truth. From the past to the future, connected, is how each day shall be. Speaking thy name, I will dwell on you eternally.

—Yogi Bhajan


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 caretaking. 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.

In the past, May was referred to as “The merry month of May.” The young people and those young at heart, welcomed May with a Maypole, and danced around the pole with fresh flowers. Love-making was definitely the favored recreation. May is associated with the arrival of warm weather and budding trees. However, this year there are other changes on the horizon.  The number one could be getting our freedom back from the clutches of the virus, getting back to work and school, as well as a healthy routine.

Four planets will spend at least some time moving in a backward position known  in astrology as retrograde. As seen from the Sun, the planets Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto  will be moving forward, but it will appear to the Sun that they are all moving backwards. Saturn turns retrograde on May 13th and continues in that direction until June 25th. Jupiter retrogrades on May 14th through September 12th. Although this energy can slow your progress, you really don’t need to worry about them. Just be cautious and make practical choices. You can use this time to rethink issues, rework problems as well as to rectify any errors in judgment.

Swan — The power of woman
Entering sacred space
Touching the future—Yet to come
Bringing to all eternal Grace.

Little Swan flew through the Dreamtime, the veil of light, looking for the future. She rested a moment in the coolness of the pond, looking for a way to find the entry point to the future, the Stargate. This was a moment of confusion for the Swan, as she knew she had happened into Dreamtime by accident. This was her first meditation flight alone and she was a bit concerned about the Dreamtime landscape.

As Swan looked high above Sacred Mountain, she saw the biggest swirling black hole she had ever seen. Dragonfly came flying by, and Swan stopped him to ask about the black hole. Dragonfly said, "Swan, that is the doorway to the other planes of our imagination. I have been a guardian of the illusion for many moons. If you want to enter there, you will have to ask permission of the higher forces and earn the right to do so.

Swan was not so sure she wanted to enter the black hole. She asked Dragonfly what was necessary to earn the entry.  ‘You must be willing to accept whatever the future holds as it is presented in your life, without trying to change the Great Spirit plan.”  Swan looked at her ugly duckling body and then answered, “I will be happy to abide by the Great Spirit plan. I will not fight the currents of the black hole. I will surrender to the flow of the spiral and  what I am shown. Dragonfly was very happy with her answer and began to spin the magic to break through the illusion of the pond. Suddenly Swan was engulfed in the whirlpool in the center of the pond.

Swan reappeared many days later, but now she was graceful, white and had a long neck. Dragonfly was stunned! “Swan what happened to you?”  he exclaimed. Swan smiled and said, “Dragonfly, I learned to surrender my body to the power of the Great Spirit and was taken to where the future lives. I saw many wonders high on the Sacred Mountain and because of my faith and my acceptance, I have been changed. I have learned to accept the State of Grace.” Dragonfly was very happy for Swan.

Swan told Dragonfly many wonders beyond the veil of illusion. Through her healing and her acceptance of the State of Grace she was given permission to enter the Dreamtime. So it is that we learn to surrender into the grace and rhythm of the universe and we are able to slip out of our physical bodies into Dreamtime. Swan medicine teaches us to be one with all planes of consciousness, and to trust in the Great Spirit protection.

May of 2020 ushers in a time of altered states of consciousness and the development of your intuitive abilities. Swan medicine people have the ability to see the future, to surrender to the power of Great Spirit, and to accept healing along with transformation of their lives.

The month of May 2020 is telling you to accept your ability to know what lies ahead. If you are resisting your self-transformation, relax! It will be easier when you go with the flow. Stop denying to yourself that you know who it is when the phone rings. Pay attention to your inner hunches as well as your gut feeling reactions, and honor the female intuitive side of yourself.

KANO–Opening – Fire – Torch

OPENING — renewed clarity – receive higher knowledge

This is the Rune of opening up, of renewed clarity, of dispelling darkness that has been shrouding some part of your life. You are free now to receive, and to know the joy of non-attached giving.

Kano is the Rune of the morning of activities, of seriousness, clarity and concentration, all of which are essential at the beginning of work. The protection offered by this Rune is that the more light you have, the more you practice your spiritual meditations, the better you can see what is trivial and outmoded in your personal life, stemming from your childhood  pre-conditioning.

In relationships, there can be a mutual opening up. You may serve as the trigger, the timekeeper, through your awareness, that the light of understanding is once again available to you both.

Recognize that, while on the one hand you are limited and dependent, on the other you exist at the perfect center where the harmonious and beneficent forces of the universe merge and radiate.  You are that center.  Simply put, if you have been operating in the dark, there is now enough light to see that the patient on the operating table is yourself!

In this time of the Taurus energies 2020 – one can expect a darkening of the light in some situation or relationship. A friendship may be dying, a partnership or marriage, some aspect of yourself or your work, an old way of being needs to be let go of, because it is no longer proper or valid for you. You are being asked to recognize that failure for you to face up to this death consciously would constitute a loss of opportunity. Kano is one of the Cycle Runes, and it can point to an inner death of a way of living, because it has been now invalidated through your personal spiritual growth.

So be prepared and willing to give up gladly the old, and to live for a while feeling empty. Spirit cannot enter a vessel that is full and running over. Wait! Have patience! Develop your inner stability, not allowing yourself to be seduced by the momentum of old ways, but instead, wait for the new.  Know in your heart at all times that the NEW will become illuminated in its proper time.

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

You just can’t keep a Sagittarian Spirit down for very long. You always find your way back home. Everything may feel like it’s moving in reverse rather than forward, and it’s best to readdress anything that needs review, recalibration, or restarting. A project that showed a lot of promise at the beginning of the year somehow got lost in the shuffle. Carry on and prepare to set the proper foundation for this new phase in your life.

goatCapricorn (12/22-1/19)

May brings you a month of mixed blessings – such as riding a roller coaster and winding up in one piece. One minute you’re happy and hopeful and the next you’re scared out of your wits. Both emotions are valid and each holds a gift. You are more fluid, Capricorn, which surprises you. It’s possible for you to us all of your expertise to pursue new goals, rather than judging them by success of failure. Things aren’t moving as quickly as you like.

fishesPisces (2/19-3/20)

May brings the urge to push forward and at the same time, retrace your steps. You can accomplish a lot by honoring both courses of action. Push forward with confidence, review your intentions, and make sure you’re on solid ground. Take care not to overlook anything. Some unfinished business, including family, finds its way to your door. Take responsibility for your actions and then be the observer. Complications easily arrive when there is a concerted effort to avoid the truth. Review your finances and earning power, so you’re not blind and in the dark. Long-term sustained success doesn’t operate on a wing and a prayer.
