For your meditation, you can simply relax and think about the energies of Taurus and how you relate to those energies. Do you relate to any of the key words in the Taurus Energy Profile? Do you need to be more like a Taurus in some areas of your life? Or could you perhaps be less like a Taurus in some ways?
Think about and listen to the messages of The Hierophant and The Empress. The Hierophant cherishes structures and institutions, and he’ll protect these if necessary. He asks us to recognize that life, knowledge, and society is preserved within certain structures or institutions, and he looks to the past and his elders for guidance. The Hierophant also values money and the process of gaining and saving wealth. The Empress on the other hand finds value in things that are beautiful, artistic, and sensual. The Empress is guided by her senses and seeks out things which bring her pleasure. (Taurus can tend to be self-indulgent and often deal with addictions, cravings, or emotional eating). What do these two cards have to teach you? How do these two cards interact with each other and change each other, if the aspects were melded into one?
The energy of Taurus always reminds me of the Cartoon, “Ferdinand The Bull”. Taurus has that sensual vibe of venus, and would love to spend their day relaxing in the sun and smelling flowers. They don’t really like change, and will resist changes in their life – especially if these changes result in less time for them to do what they really enjoy. Taurus isn’t really violent or angry – they won’t instigate conflict (because that’s not relaxing and doesn’t feel good!) However, if they are provoked, they will react! And then the offender better watch out! Because if you have disturbed the Bull’s harmony, family, partner, or feelings of security they will trample you. (And then go right back to enjoying their nap in the sun, smelling the flowers)
Here are some questions you can ask yourself and Journal about as you explore the energy of Taurus.
Journal With The Hierophant:
What rule or law do you feel you have transgressed? How are you holding yourself accountable? Or who around you do you feel has broken a law or rule, and how do you hold them accountable for that? What traditions are you upholding? Why? What traditions or institutions are you rebelling against, and why? What are you learning or what would you like to learn more about?
Journal with The Empress:
How are you indulging your senses? Are you over-indulging or becoming dependent on something that feels good? Do you need to pamper yourself or indulge your senses a bit more? Who is inspiring or nurturing you? Are you inspiring and nurturing others? What creative projects are you working on?
