TAURUS – The Sign of Material Stability

(The sense of ‘My’)

If Taurus could talk, what would it say?

“I walk on a steady path in life. I am solid and productive—the image of fortitude. I continue to build up my worth, while I remain the same down-to-earth person I have always been. I am someone the world can count on. I usually remain peaceful and calm regardless of how dangerous the situation becomes. I’m mastering the art of monotonous perseverance. When I finally blow my top, however, I go ballistic.

“I place value in things that endure. If I am not wealthy now, I am going to be. I know what matters to me and I am holding on to it for dear life. I do not see the sense of turning it over to anyone else.”

Taurus represents the fulfillment of all the activity set into motion by the previous sign, Aries. Aries is the seed and Taurus is the blooming flower.

In the human experience, Taurus embodies a love of nature and all of its bounty. Taurus individuals have an unequaled appreciation of the material world that makes it easy for them to be comfortable and content. That is in theory; however, in practice souls who are prominently endowed with this energy are here to learn how to experience peace of mind regardless of what is going on around them. They are here to calm down and roll with the punches and many of them find this difficult to do. Eventually though, they get there.

Attaining a state of calmness is much easier to do when one is self- employed and when there is no one in a superior position to answer to because in that case the pressure is primarily internal. When the pressure comes from the outside, and Taurus feels rushed, the normally placid nature of this sign is powerfully aroused. Taurus individuals trust that they can finish what they start and want to do so at their own pace in their own good time. They have incredible stamina and can endure the tedium of repetitive work that goes on indefinitely. They simply do not wish to be disturbed while they are enduring it. Do not provoke the bull and incur its wrath for hell has no fury like a raging bull.

Rage, however, is the last straw for Taurus. Normally, this sign is famous for its good-natured amiability. Taurus’ energy is synonymous with the energy of the planet Venus, the goddess of love. Taurus brings the goddess down to earth, so she can enjoy the fruits of nature.

Taureans can experience great pleasure in life; however, they are choosy about what they bring into their lives. They want quality and they demand the best. They are very definite about what matters to them and if something is not on their list of preferences, it might as well not even exist.

The bull is constant and committed. Taureans will work to the absolute limits of their capacity. When the job is done and some breathing space opens up, however, they can slow down to a point where you could not get them to budge unless you lit a fire under them—and maybe not even then. Sometimes they just do not want to do anything, go anywhere or participate in any activity except for lounging, bathing and dining.

Taurus is associated with the throat and it is hard for them to deny the pleasures in that part of the body. They love to eat good food and imbibe delicious beverages. They enjoy passive indulgences such as hanging out in the spa while dutiful attendants cater to their every whim. Taurus appreciates the finer things in life—beautiful works of music and art, a lovely home, gourmet cuisine and an enthusiastic lover with whom they can engage in amorous adventures. They usually have a mellifluous speaking and singing voice and abundant charm. So it is not too tough being a Taurus if you would not mind being what we would call an ordinary human being. Of course, ordinary, basic, good old reliable people are probably the happiest people in the world once they learn to be free of internal agitation.

ARIES – The Sign of Personal Initiative

(The sense of ‘I’)

If Aries could talk, what would it say?

“I’m the first one here and I’m ready for anything. My battery gets charged in a split second. I live in a perpetual whirlwind. I like starting new projects, sowing the seed while others reap the harvest.”

“I go my own way at my own speed. My swaggering display of boldness is a facade that works in getting me what I want. I insist upon calling the shots. I do not want advice from anyone. I want love from everyone.”

“I am honest to the point of being outspoken and genuine enough to get away with it. No matter what happens, I cannot lose. This is my life.”

If you play the board game of Monopoly, you begin at Go. Aries inhabits the space of Go on the game board of life. At its very best, Aries represents the resiliency of an unconquerable spirit, an irresistible force of nature that allows neither interference nor intervention. Aries is gifted with a consciousness that is utterly centered in its own light, so it is less subject to influence than any other sign. When an Aries individual hears something it disagrees with, it asserts its truth forcefully. Aries individuals seldom take anything lying down. They stand up for what they believe in and for their rightful place in the scheme of things.

Sun in Aries people will always be free inside no matter what they undergo on the outside. They know they are among God’s beloved creatures and they insist on being treated accordingly.

In the sequential development of the Zodiac, Aries marks the beginning of a new cycle. Metaphysically, this sign symbolizes the separation from unity and the creation of the human ego. Adam, symbolically the very first human on earth, is an embodiment of Aries energy. Adam and his partner Eve, the embodiment of the next sign Taurus, represent the time of transition from animal consciousness to human consciousness when, for the first time, the Divine entered material form and the essence we call God became our essence.

In a sense, Aries is the ego. Those who have Aries as their star (sun) sign have come here to be an original, one-of-a-kind individual, unlike anyone who has come before and like no other that will ever be again.

In the book, ‚The Great Love, We Came Here as Teachers of Love and Got Enrolled in the School of Fear‛, the Aries character is Bud. Bud learns to transform his energies through his encounter with Master Wiseheart (actually a higher frequency extension of his own consciousness.)

Bud transitions from pure egotism, where everything has to go his way, to authenticity, where everything is already just as it ought to be. He turns his life over to the creative living process and trusts that his co-creative participation in life is telling him what will serve his evolutionary growth at all times. He goes beyond the influence of the earth that is trying to sell him a program other than his own and instead remains true to his experience and to what is in his heart. No other sign is as genuine as Aries—Aries people have great self love and make no apologies about the way they are.

Egotism is very powerful in this sign—it is as if there is only Aries and what Aries thinks and feels and believes and that must be the truth. There are, however, eleven signs that follow, each with lessons that open up the portals of human perception and make them increasingly panoramic. Aries is powerful in its truth; however, it is not an all inclusive truth. Of course in a chart, individuals who have the Sun in Aries may have other components that enable them to continually stretch their parameters. Still, they remain faithful to their own independent vision of the way things are because that is what they are here to experience.

The zodiac is a continuum. After each sign has made its contribution, the wheel of life comes full circle and returns to the part of the sky that represents the energy we identify as Aries. Just as the spring rain brings the promise that something fresh and even more wonderful can materialize in the natural world, life is invigorated when Aries is prevailing once again.

PISCES The Sign of Unconditional Love

(The sense of All of Us)

If Pisces could talk, what it would say?

“I believe in the power of imagination. I accept the strange and the
weird things in life as perfectly normal. I identify with everyone I meet and can barely see where I leave off and they begin. My boundaries have no

I am in touch with the world but out of your reach. Some say I make
little sense. That shows how little they know. I really love you and
that is how I manage to survive the dreary parts of my life. What
makes my life matter is when I make it easier for you to get through
them too.”

For all their grasp of the truth, which is essentially an account of the current physical condition of the world, Aquarians are but the penultimate sign. There is one more step to take before the zodiac arrives at its ultimate destination. Of course, the lessons of the signs will be repeated ad infinitum, as the zodiac spirals in space through eternity. The denouement of the astrological story, however, occurs with Pisces, who wraps up the cosmic chronicle by uncovering its ultimate message.

Despite the cynicism that seems to be prevailing in these troubled times we live in, there is an essential meaning to life on earth, hinted at in the section on Sagittarius, which is repeated here:

Sagittarians want to rise above their animal nature and ascend to a higher plane of existence. Many metaphysicians believe that Planet Earth exists for this very purpose.

It is Pisces that brings this message to the masses, which is why the quintessential Piscean, Jesus, looms so large in the consciousness of the human race, even within the non Christian world. The forecast for Pisces that ran last September on this website sheds some light upon this matter.

Did you know that Jesus, born Yeshua,was a Pisces? He came into this world as the ewes were giving birth to the lambs in the month of March. The early Christians had a fish (Pisces’ traditional symbol) tattooed on their palm that identified them as a member of the new tribe. This tribe had faith that the world could be redeemed by embracing a love that knows neither discrimination nor separation. Still, they had to hide the fact of their meetings and celebrate the birth of their master teacher in conjunction with the Roman holiday, Saturnalia, which naturally fell at the end of the year.

All Pisceans want to be saviors because their porous energy fields experience all the pain of the world. Their amazing ability to channel the consciousness of the higher realms facilitates a co-creative fusion with divine love. It is sad indeed when they substitute this great gift and cater instead to popular taste.

Pisceans possess extreme sensitivity. Their deep, empathetic nature enables them to open up and experience the energy of all that surrounds them. They pick up on people’s thoughts and feelings because they are able to cross the boundary line that separates them from others and thus they reach ‘God realization’. It is for this reason that any soul is willing to take on such a complex and confusing journey, pretending they are merely another dot on the cosmic map yet ultimately realizing that in essence they are all the dots.

Of course, much as they may pay lip service to a Christ-like existence, Pisceans are no different than most of us. They consider the thought of going naked in the world with just one’s faith in an invisible higher power for support, as something only a lunatic would do. They revere the symbol of Christ in the abstract, yet in everyday reality, they fear the path he walked and the steps he took.

The Christ consciousness is rejected by the fearful ego-mind that cannot extricate itself from its reptilian survivalist mentality. The result is that life is lived out as a contest between egocentric individuals seeking fame and fortune to validate a sense of superiority. It becomes the opposite of its heavenly origins.

As they are so in touch with the invisible world, there is nothing the Piscean fears more than the thought that they will lose their grip on the visible one. This fear is magnified by the fact that often that is just what they want to do. There is not one but two fish and Pisceans are even more ambivalent than Gemini, more dichotomous than Libra and more paradoxical than Aquarius. One pole of their consciousness wants to live forever. The other pole is seeking a reality more fluid and more ethereal; motivating that poor fish to feel it is out of water and not wanting to stay on earth one more day.

What most Pisceans resist coming to terms with is that reality can become the dream their soul is longing for, if only they would let go of their attachment to the ego. They want to believe this, yet most of the time they act in ways that move them in the opposite direction, although they are seldom happy when they do.

The sign of Pisces symbolizes a path toward ego-transcendence. Still, many Pisceans have monumental egos because their consciousness is so vast. There is little (if anything) they do not understand or cannot express. They can channel energy and information that is perfect for the time and place and thus deceive themselves into believing that they have no limits, however, they still have a physical body that limits them from overstepping their boundaries and becoming invasive. Pisceans would be wise to continue bearing in mind that in the game of life, other people are other people. In this way, they will stop imposing their truth when their advice is unsolicited.

The saving grace of Pisceans is their deep desire to offer compassionate service to all those who ask for it. They know that unless they do, they will be swamped with guilt and not love themselves any more.

While their complementary opposite, Virgo, is here to serve the earth, Pisces is here to serve a world beyond this one and beyond the capacity of the five physical senses to perceive. The exquisitely delicate nature of the Piscean is able to absorb the full spectrum of heavenly light, which informs them that God is immanent and that the divine essence within wants all of us to love one another.

It is not difficult for us to love. What is hard is for us to hate. The darkness that is so prevalent on this earth is what has grounded us, so that we could learn our lessons. Only now, the darkness is about to withdraw and the light will take the human race into a whole new dimension of energy where it will become much safer to begin dissolving our boundaries.

We can all be grateful to the sign and the consciousness of Pisces for showing us the way.
