The 2000 Taurus Alignment - What do you value most in your life?
to astrologer Richard Idemon, the ancient Greeks had a saying that when
passing by the temple of a god, you must honor the god by quickly making
the appropriate sacrifice at the appropriate time. One should never
offend the gods by ignoring them.
the case of the Zodiacal sign of Taurus ruled by Venus, what is the
appropriate sacrifice required? How do we as individuals and collectively
as a society begin to properly acknowledge and honor the unknown visitor
Archetypically, Taurus ruled by Venus is a concrete world of reality
and sensory perception - with roots solidly built on earthy, physical
sensations and practicality. One of the many ancient images evoked by
the sign of Taurus is the paradisal Garden of Eden. Paradise from the
Greek paradeisos - means the garden, enclosed park, paradise. Taurus
feels the most solid, stable, and comfortable when surrounded with its
pleasurable world of the five senses...
is the archetypal Zodiacal sign reflecting physical pleasures and comfort,
the joys and beauty of unspoiled virgin nature, staying power, the elemental
forces of gravity, Mother Earth, values, meaning in life, and our possessions...
Individually and collectively, during the next twenty years (2000-2020),
Taurus ruled by Venus will be asking us the hard question, "What
do you value most in your life?" Whether on a societal or individual
level - honoring the Taurean energies contained in this great planetary
alignment will involve:
* the offering up of our values
* the reevaluation of our values
* and then the fortitude and slow, steady, staying power required to
stand solidly behind what we have chosen to value.
will you choose to greet this planetary alignment in Taurus? Will you
choose to keep your door open or will you turn the unknown visitor away?
Called or not called, the god will be there...
