The stereotypes of Taurus can feel derivative… Stubborn, indulgent, reliable. We’ve heard it all before.
It’s widely believed that Buddha was a Taurus, and after my time visiting a Buddhist temple in India, I can see why; what made the temple a spiritual haven wasn’t the architecture or traditions; it was the routine of the community. Even the youngest Monks among them observed the same schedule daily of prayer and service. I learned that simplicity is the oldest gateway to divinity within the human experience.
That reframe made even my most tedious “earth” tasks feel divine. Dishes? A meditation. Taking my supplements? A service to my body. Laundry? A clutter-free space is a clutter-free mind.
This weekend is a blend of Taurus + New Moon + partial solar eclipse + Uranus conjunction.
Let’s break it down:
New Moon: A quiet, internal, reflective weekend.
Taurus: No one talks about the insecurity of Taurus when the divinity of earth is conflated with belongings, money, success, accolades. Other themes include routine, indulgence, sensuality, nature, simplicity.
Partial solar eclipse: The Sun in astrology is Self and Ego. A partial obscurement reveals the ego’s shadow. What comes up when you switch the light off? What is intuition but simply the soul’s night vision?
Moon conjunct Uranus: A fresh approach, switching things up, unconventional methods
(This is the area of your life being illuminated by the New Moon in Taurus.)
Take a moment this weekend and explore this question as a journal prompt or meditation. I’d love to hear what’s coming up for you in the comments below.
To the moon and back (pun intended),
