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 powers that be as well as the virus, getting back to work, as well as a healthy routine. Don’t hesitate to start something new.

Mercury will spend at least some time moving in a backward position known in astrology as retrograde. As seen from the Sun, the planet  Pluto turns retrograde on May 2nd and continues in that direction until October 12th. Jupiter moves into Taurus May 14th through May 25th, 2024. Although some of this energy can slow your progress, you really don’t need to worry about it. 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.

Hawk, messenger of the sky,
Circle my dreams and 
teach me Your message
as we fly.

Hawk is akin to Mercury, the messenger of the gods. Hawk medicine teaches you to be observant, to look at your surroundings. Observe the obvious in everything that you do. Life is sending you signals.

Life is the Intiation. The Hawk in May 2023, brings to us a clue about the magic of life which is being brought to you. This magic can imbue you with the power to overcome a currently stressful or difficult situation. The test is your ability to observe the nuances of power lurking nearby. Is the power the talent you were born with but are not using? Are solutions always hard to find because you have lost the broader vision of the Hawk? Or is the Great Spirit bringing to you a gift that only you have to choose to receive? Have the rainbow colors of the morning inspired you to create? Or has the gloominess of the situation left you earthbound, unable to hear the voice within the raindrops or snow flurries splashing against your window? You are only as powerful as your ability to perceive, receive, and use your talents and abilities.

What is called for here is an intuitive ability to discern the message carried within the cry of the Hawk. The shrillness of the Hawk call pierces the state of unawareness, and asks you to seek the truth.

The Ancients recognized this magnificent bird of prey as a messenger bringing tidings to their Earth Walk, the Good Red Road, from the world of the grandfathers and grandmothers who lived before them. If Hawk were to magically cry, it was a sign to beware or be aware. This could mark the coming of a warring tribe, the birth of a child, or the celebration of counting a financial coup. When Hawk cries, it signals the need for the beholder to heighten awareness and receive a message.

Hawk medicine is a totem that is filled with responsibility because Hawk people see the overall view. Hawk is not like the Mouse, who sees everything through a magnifying glass. Hawk medicine people are aware of omens, messages from the spirit, and the color of the calling card you gave them three months ago. No detail slips by them unnoticed.

As Hawk has circled and landed in your life this May 2023, you are to be aware of signals in your life – so wake up, notice and receive them. Hawk may be teaching you to grab an opportunity coming your way. On the other hand, Hawk may be bringing you the message that you should circle over your life, and examine it from a higher perspective. From this vantage point you may be able to discern the hazards which bar you from freedom of flight. Remember – Hawk has a keen eye and a bold heart, for Hawk flies close to the light of Grandfather Sun.

Gebo is the Rune showing that a union or uniting or partnership of some form is at hand. You are, however, put on notice not to collapse yourself into that union. For true partnership can only be achieved by separate and whole beings who retain their separateness even in unity and uniting. Always remember to let the winds of heaven dance between you.

At all levels, in love relationships, business matters, in partnering of any kind, this counsel applies particularly when you are entering into a partnership with your Blessed Higher Self. Establishing an open, flowing channel between the Self and the Higher Self is the ultimate form of human partnership. For out of it comes a union with the Divine. God always enters into equal partnerships.

Thus Gebo, the Rune of Partnership, has no reverse for it signifies the gift of freedom from which flows all other gifts.

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