Wrapping up the Month of May, 2013
Hello, precious Taurus! The delays of May — and its stresses — should soon alleviate and that’s certainly good news. May was seemingly a ripe fruit of frustration and certainly not the most comfortable month. You can blame it on astrology in a real way. Hopefully by the end of this month you got as much handled as possible. It will soon be time to really make a push on projects that have been languishing for one reason or another. So let’s take a quick look at what was causing you a little grief in the month of May to serve as a reference point to what you’ll need to work on in June. (more…)

You feel a jingle in your pocket, sweet Taurus! Maybe you’re loosening your purse strings to purchase something you really need…or something you really want! Even though you’re feeling like you need to make some purchases be sure to watch your spending right now. Making smaller purchases is likely better than dropping a grand on something you really, really want. It’s not like you don’t deserve it: so often you are very generous with your loved ones and friends that you forget to treat yourself to not only a small luxury but things that you really need like a new pair of athletic shoes to protect your feet! It is time to take care of yourself and you can be Santa Claus as often as you like but this is a time to budget and build up a better savings for the future — and don’t take this as a precaution that some financial difficulty is on the horizon! It’s just that you need to take care of priorities, too, like that savings you’ve been putting off as of late. Again, no worries! There’s a feeling of splurging lately and there are some good reasons you’re feeling this way: you’re feeling LUCKY! That’s a good thing! (more…)

The past is behind you for a reason, dear Taurus. It isn’t in front of you, it’s behind you. No matter what you feel you failed at, no matter what you you regret, it has no place in the present. It’s weighing you down, it’s acting like a ball and chain — is this how you really want to live or are you holding onto the past because you’re afraid of who you are without this negative aspect of yourself? Please think carefully about what I’m saying because I’m very serious here. Being a strong and determined person means you are also passionate about all things. But it doesn’t mean you have to be passionate about anything that isn’t going to help you move forward in this life. Sometimes we over identify with some event in our lives, some significant event we never worked through fully and it could be because we never found closure, we never were happy with the results, or we were in denial at the time about something painful that happened. Perhaps we go into denial, think we’ve handled something and move forward — without realizing we had much work to do on ourselves and were literally moving too fast and too far. If that’s the case, I’m asking you to to do something: realize that it’s over, that it’s gone, if you must relive what happened to you, whatever causes you sorrow or regret, in order to figure out what is specifically causing you pain about it, then do so. I know this sounds odd because most therapists will tell you to just “let it go” and I’m telling you to relive it again. The reason for this is simple: there is something in your past that is unresolved. There is something causing you pain. Someone you miss or an opportunity you missed. I can tell you over and over “what does it matter now?” and that would be useless to you because some part of it does matter. The key is this, precious Taurus: you are robbing yourself of happiness but happiness does not come magically to us. Happiness is something we must seek just like true love — we have to go out and find it. Happiness is a state of mind and those who are happy don’t let anything from the past, present, or future worry bother them long. You are not usually very negative — stubborn, yes — but not negative. But when this negativity is compounded by your stubborn grip on something, budging you is like budging a one ton bull. Please don’t do this to yourself — and you have my permission to go ahead and schedule some time to stop, cry if you must, and take as much time as you need to figure out what from the past is so terrible and hurts so much that you must cling to it in the present. It’s holding you down, it’s holding you back, and it’s up to you to identify this thing that has become the sole thing you identify with. I love you, I wish you well, I’m here for you if you wish to contact me.
Contemplate: You can do this, Taurus! You can finally rid yourself of the sadness that is keeping you stuck in this perpetual state of unhappiness. It’s affecting your mind, your health, and it will take its toll. It’s time to sit down, do whatever it takes, to identify this thing that is bothering you so much that it holds you back. I’m sure you don’t want to be unhappy but perhaps you’re so used to it you think there’s no other way to be. That’s wrong, Taurus! If you choose to remain negative, so be it. I’m asking you to ask yourself if you want to be happy. Now, if you do, take the time to find out what it is that’s making you so sad and then make the effort to change your mind about the past, put it into place, put it away, understand that it’s not the present and that you are entitled to be happy and free from whatever it is that you no longer wish to carry as such a burden as it’s become. God bless you, I’m praying for you, but it’s going to take YOU to change this. And YOU CAN DO IT.
For the week of Monday, February 20, 2012
This one’s up next for my precious and dear friend, Prasanna Gunaseelan, because he is SO patient and always an angel to me! Love you, P!
First of all, I want you to know that you should NOT be so hard on yourself, dear Taurus! You may be dealing with someone oversensitive to just about everything and everyone…Lord, the list could be a mile long but I want you to know that none of this is your fault and you are always doing the best you can. Since you are not to blame for this other person’s feeling at this time, I want you to try to relax and release the stress this person is causing you — take a break when possible — understanding that you cannot control how anyone else feels: you can only control yourself. It’s just that someone around you is so hyper-sensitive that you feel you can’t do anything right for them or around them. Just know that it will all soon be over and this stress, this other person’s over reactions to you, will soon subside. I just wanted to add that since it appears to me you’re stressing over someone else’s feelings and remind you that your feelings are your own and you cannot make someone else feel any better about anything they don’t choose to change about themselves, their circumstances, or their lives. Got that? Alrighty then! Moving right along!
If you’ve recently changed jobs, Taurus, you were right to do so. If you’ve not yet done that, well, I’d hurry up! You don’t want to get too close to the next Mercury Retrograde but more on that in a separate post. Anything creative will benefit you so if you work in any field that requires creativity, then go for it but do hurry up! Mars was very friendly to you last month, 1/23, and lit up your house of arts and the artistic expression so I feel if you were looking for a job in a creative field that you were happy with the choices you made. If, again, you’ve not made that move, then move quickly to find where you need to network to get in where you want to be. I’m very serious about this: You’ve got great aspects in this area until July 3rd so hurry it up! Though Mars is Retrograde that doesn’t mean Mars is totally asleep — maybe sluggish until April 13th, but not dead in the water! — so that means that you will still have Mars’ help. Much luck comes to those dear Taurus born first two weeks of may, approximately. Even if you were not born in these weeks, you are still good to go! Just get it going and light a fire under your bottom before I do!
Many Taurus friends have been thinking about house, home, housing, and where to live and this could also be about someone who lives in your home, someone older, perhaps an elder. You will likely be coming to a conclusion about this elder or the housing situation related to this person and to you very soon if you already have not. I know you’ve had some burdens on your mind and it’s time to take care of this. Saturn is Retrograde until June 25th so you could see some slowing in the area that has to do with work and projects relating to work. You may be without some help you rely on so be sure to cover your bases accordingly. Also, you need to try to keep your health UP! Taurus, please, watch your health and remember that some stress is normal and even healthy but too much stress is very bad for you. Perhaps you’ve already been to the doctor’s office for a visit and the reason for your lack of energy or other problems isn’t clear at this time. You may have to go back in and have tests done over (think Retrograde: RE…Redo, retake, rethink, evaluate again). You have Jupiter in a great place right now so please do go back to the doctor and you will find answers to your ails and get this done before MAY if at all possible — no latter than the middle of MAY.
You may also be considering studies, college, university, all kinds of intellectual self improvement. Remember there are many free online courses to learn from and many subjects to study already. There could be indication of interaction with people or situations involving the foreign, foreign people, thoughts of travel to foreign places for whatever reason. Think EXPANSION in all ways. It may be a slow process during the Retrograde, also. Don’t be daunted by this. Patience is required at this time so no worries! You will understand this later when Saturn and Mars are no longer Retrograde. Patience.
I like the New Moon tomorrow for you! Lots on the movement in the social networking scene and also making new contacts through people you already know. You will feel much better about meeting new people now if you are not currently romantically involved. Neptune is your friend at this New Moon and Neptune speaks to us in dreams and in the realm of the imagination. This is a very auspicious time for romance so DO get out and about! Also, May will be a very special time for romance so take care of business and romance will take care of itself! Those pretty Taurus friends born near 4/21 will feel very romantic influences indeed! You will enjoy increased popularity, too, thanks to Neptune in your 10th house of fame and will be in Pisces until 2026 — this is a very good thing for all of us, one way or another! Neptune is in your 11th house of friends and good times so please make new friends — allow that! You will do anything and everything for the one you love so if you sit in your house, how can you do that? Do not sit at home! If someone introduces you or suggests an introduction, go for it thinking of making new friends and see what comes of it! Go to benefits that involve charity or charity work to meet people and to do things that make you feel good. Anything that helps another soul is good for you and you will meet people who think like you do. Neptune will bring gentle influences so the person you wish to find for love is not going to be an in your face type of person, as this person is going to be gentle and a little reserved. That is why it is important to let your friends know if you are single or not! If you are attached already, Neptune brings an influence of gentle, compassionate love that is sacrificing for the betterment of the two.
If you are looking for new housing for whatever reason, please seek more options this weekend, 24th. You would be very pleased with the options available then so if you need something like a new place, something that you need for your home, or a new space entirely, do try to look over this coming weekend. Many good things are going to happen for you, Taurus, believe it or not! But by making new friends in the way I described above and in the situations that I outlined like charity, benefit, humanitarian causes, you will find it helps you in areas even related to career. Perhaps these changes will help you deal with someone in your life that has become quite hard to deal with now. Maybe meeting someone new will help you develop a new plan to better deal with an elder or someone in some position of authority over you in your home. Just be sure to take time for YOU while handling these things, make friends, and all will begin to turn in your favor very soon!
Contemplate: Making new friends will help you in many ways, many even relating to career. You need to understand that to be totally healthy you must develop friendships with other people, especially if you are looking for romance or a good partnership of any kind. Take care of your health! If you need to get tests re done or more information on an ailment that you do not have enough information on, do it now and before MAY, no latter than the middle of the month. All things will go your way with a little patience, so please, continue to stay positive because I see much good ahead for you but you MUST promise to take better care of yourself, Taurus! Seek foreigners, foreign study, or anything that is foreign to you for good luck! Much love to you, Taurus!

What you’ve wished for, wanted, worked for, or toiled over can soon come to fruition, Taurus. Yes, even after much stress, strain, and even pain. But your attitude is what’s going to matter now and with the full moon tomorrow, you may struggle a bit with negativity or pessimism. Don’t let your hard work get blocked by your own attitude and further, don’t let any negativity keep opportunities from coming to your door. That’s how is works, Taurus, and you should know that your own attitudes sometimes cause you more problems than you think. Even if petty situations surface in conjunction with opportunity, don’t focus on the irritation, focus on your goals. You may get word there is some new job or other beneficial situation soon and your attitude — even what you don’t express to others — could make or break the deal coming to you at all. Though you’d like to retreat into your own world you cannot at this time: whatever it is that is an opportunity appears to be something you want badly and though it may come with some strings attached, you cannot miss this chance to give one more push, one more great effort, and even to reap the rewards though you may have to push some red tape out of your way.
Contemplate: Do not let your own negativity thwart you, Taurus, you need to chin up and seize opportunity now — not retreat!
For the week of Monday, January 30, 2012
Taurus, there is such a thing as over-thinking things. Sometimes we ruminate about things until we are exhausted mentally and that’s when we think we can’t solve the problem — and actually it’s true! We can’t solve problems if we keep going over and over them without stopping to think the answers to any problem are usual the most SIMPLE. Stop for a moment and realize that you are doing nothing more than taking a problem like one of arithmetic, and though know you know the order of the procedure, the operations, you don’t use them! The problems you have now or any challenges you face are not as complex as you are making them. Have you ever heard the saying, “Work smarter, not harder”? You are know working harder and not smarter spending all your time worrying about the problem rather than implementing the solution.
The situation you are dealing with is almost cut and dry to me from where I sit writing this. Have a problem? Solve it. Have a solution that will work? Stop thinking and start solving your problems. If this is a legal problem then solve it with a legal maneuver. If this is a relationship problem, don’t add more emotion factors, just solve the problem with logic. Think “simplify” and that includes removing yourself and emotions like worry out of the equation. You can do this, just stop trying to think of different solutions: you already know what to do. You’ve already argued every point with yourself to the bring of nausea so get this done.
The new moon of the 22nd will lend you the energy you need to complete your tasks and in weeks prior to this moon you should have accumulated the information you needed to get things taken care of.
Contemplate: Stop thinking and start DOING.

Ever get that feeling that someone’s lying to you, Taurus, only to dismiss the notion as “all in my head”? Ever get that feeling that someone makes you uncomfortable, you try to dismiss it, only to find yourself unable to rationalize your feelings away? Well, this is what I call the gut instinct and I advise people that when their gut is talking they need to listen. If someone causes you to feel ill at ease and even trying to tell yourself you’re just crazy isn’t working, all the more indication that you should revisit your gut with an experiment: next time you feel ill at ease with someone or don’t trust them, tell yourself that you’re right and go ahead and distrust. If you feel better when you try this experiment it’s further validation that your initial instincts were right. If someone in your world is making you feel ill at ease, you would do well to back off or otherwise say no from this person. No one who is honest with you, loves you, and cares about you would do this so why would you let anyone make you uncomfortable without saying so? And if you’re that uncomfortable already you would do well no longer communicate with this person. If you work with such an individual it is not easy to just pretend they don’t exist. In that case the best thing to do would be to put some distance between you even if it means you bring a water bottle to work and not drink by the water cooler.
Contemplate: Your instinct is pretty sharp at this time.

My Taurus friend, forgiving and letting go isn’t easy for you but when you understand that someone else may really be sorry for slighting you in some way it should be easier for you to do so. Sometimes we hold on to regret because we are still very hurt. But isn’t holding onto that hurt just like being in a constant state of hurt? Even when we think we’ve let it go, have we, really? This is a good time for you to think of the hurts you carry with you. Doesn’t it seem pointless to carry the weight of something, perhaps some burden, that seems like you cast off but still remains a burden on the mind — even in the recesses of your thoughts? You may feel there’s nothing you can do about the situation because you’ve justified your thinking. If I gave you a 200 lb. box of bricks and asked you to carry them, would you not tire, eventually? Would you not ask me why I need you to continue to carry this burdensome thing? That’s what you need do to at this time: ask yourself why you are carrying the burden of something, some past hurt, something said or done to you that is now in the past. If you seek the burden out, if you identify it, if you question if it still makes sense to carry this hurt, you will find that you don’t really know why you’re carrying it at all. Perhaps there’s nothing you can do about something long in the past. But what you can do it completely release it and tell yourself it’s just dust in the wind and it doesn’t matter anymore. This can free you up to make amends or forgive someone even if by simply forgetting what happened at all. You’ll feel better about yourself, lighter, easier, and more at peace.
Contemplate: It’s all in the past now.
