Hello dear readers!
I was just interviewed by a magazine author – about parents, children, parenting, all under the topic of Astrological Taurus. We also got into what 2021 is going to look like – for Taurus’ in particular, but also for the rest of us.
It was a dynamic and fun discussion. When we finished, she said, “This was a like a master-class. It was so enlightening!” I certainly shared some wisdom about Spiritual Astrology and about children who are Tauruses, parents (adults) who are Tauruses and much more!
One big take-away – Taurus and Scorpio are two of the signs which can easily live a grand-lifestyle. Good food, good wine, good company, enjoying / appreciating sensuality, very generous, making good money and (often) material-oriented. In addition, Taurus, ruled by Venus, is associated with fashion and aesthetics (of course Libra, Leo and other influences are felt too when it comes to the fashion industry), but this industry has taken a huge hit during the pandemic. Hopefully it can recover soon!
In other words, Taurus and Scorpio (at least in their “living life to the fullest” traits) have had to make some enormous adjustments during this pandemic. And we need to keep in mind, we all have Taurus and Scorpio somewhere in our charts (in our personalities). So obviously we have all taken a collective shock to our social engagement – the social side of the autonomic nervous system. Support is more difficult to lean into, baby sitters are more difficult to come by, visiting family is more challenging… And those of us who are strongly oriented toward living the grand life – expecting good food, good company, good paychecks all the time – we may be facing and shifting in the midst of some very uncomfortable truths right now.
Therefore Taurus (and Scorpio) must find ways of adapting to the current circumstances. More introspection is important. What may have been unconscious habits and patterns are now going to come to the surface, as more time with our kids, more time parenting, more time home-schooling (especially for all you awesome mothers out there!) is happening across the board. Now is the time to release and bring to awareness old patterns which no longer serve us. Now is the time to invite the revealing of secrets – especially if we are having significant challenges in relationships. We need more consciousness with our actions – more awareness, in order to know what types of self-care are going to be most efficacious for us.
We have to be honest about how hard things are right now. Some of us are grieving the loss of jobs, or the loss of careers – or at least being forced to put careers on hold while we home school our children. Ugh! These are such difficult decisions and we desperately need more support! First of all, admitting “this is really hard,” “this is too much,” “I need support.” We must spend some time attending to our needs. If we do not make the overwhelming difficulty of this time conscious, then we will remain checked out on some levels until things improve. And this is one option… but I for one prefer to be more present to my heart, my emotions, to my process.
I know there are times when we just need to decompress, we just need some vegging out time. And take that time. But then come back to self-care. What serves you? What brings you joy? What makes you feel more alive? Can I work in two or three yoga classes / week? I know it is not the same on Zoom. But we must come back toward alignment, even if we are down or exhausted or depleted. Reach out for support. Ask for help. Take one of my upcoming classes. Find resources around you (even if they might be virtual for another 5 – 6 months).
As you can see, we covered a lot in the interview. Honestly, I’m not sure how only 45 minutes went by. The data download as it were was immense. I look forward to seeing how she coheres all this juicy information.
When the article comes out, I will link to it! She wants to check in with me down the road for further articles about astrology – which I am quite excited about.
Also I am very excited to be teaching Trauma-Informed Astrology starting in February. Leave me a comment if you might be interested in taking these classes – also see the last post on here (which is particularly on this topic). I suspect that my broad background could make these classes seem like master-classes as well!
Thank you for joining me on this unique journey!
