* Simplicity is one of the safest, most durable, loyal, easy, and supportive qualities of nature. If we want to experience happiness in any phase of life then we might consider simplifying our expectations, or habits and routines and methods.
* When you follow a routine and you make sure to include time for resting and playing or small pleasures, then your experiences becomes both stable and enjoyable. Creating some simple/basic rhythms that you stick with no matter what might feel hard at first, but once it becomes second nature there is also an inherent flexibility and sensuality that follows. Taurus is most at home when she knows it’s time to graze or it’s time to rest and yet within that grazing or resting there is a sense of freedom as well.
* Never underestimate the power of environment to produce good results. If you take a little extra time to make the environment sweet, clean, tidy, and stable, almost anything counts as a good outcome.
* Knowing what to do, how to act, or how to respond is easiest when we can listen to our body. However it’s hard to listen to our bodies when we’re moving too fast or we’re too overloaded with food or chemicals or information. Slowness is creative power with Taurus.
* Some people say that Taurus is earthy and therefore not too imaginative or intellectual. Imagine this instead. The imagination of Taurus is the imagination of simplicity. It’s the intellect of a sunrise or sunset, a flower burst or rain shower. It doesn’t need more than the phenomenon itself, but make no mistake…this is an imaginative and intellectual choice. It’s an imaginative choice that while appearing simple is just as far out as any other. In some ways Taurus is seduced by its own exotic, extra terrestrial perfume. But make no mistake, Taurus isn’t any more or less imaginal than any other sign!
Prayer: Teach us to live by the simple perfumes of the cosmic Bull.
