Clear And Present

Taurus 9° (April 29)

Danger Will Robinson.Very strange night of sleep. I had multiple dreams involving animals with human intelligence starting with a mouse with whom I made (loose) tea. That was an odd one, filled with dark woods leading onto a private compound and forest paths and gates and characters gathering for some kind of cult purpose. Very dark and mysterious. And then there was a dream in which I was sleeping—exciting sounding isn’t it—and I could feel animals moving underneath the covers but I could never quite catch them when I pull the blankets back. Until I did and there was a tiny hedgehog, a little furball that let me pet it. I had a dream about a talking hedgehog many years ago—it didn’t speak a language I knew but sort of one of screeching which was kind of disturbing but magical. The setting then was the Meatpacking District in Manhattan. This one was teeny tiny, like a furby, something that could sit in the palm of your hand. And then the dream switched and there were a couple of hedgehogs but these foreign looking characters with swords tried to slit their throats. I think I got to save them in time I can’t remember. What I do recall from the many moons ago when I did dream of the talking one is that they are sacred to Hermes, which makes sense in light of the winged creature that landed on my yesterday. In my dream, too, I think I was homeless and decided to get a mattress to put in the back of my van. I’m hoping it’s just because I watched Nomadland last month and that it isn’t a premonition…Anyway I will get some cooking and then some editing and then lunch of leftover flounder and chips with salad (I have a chowder on the hob for dinner) and after a client I have to write a few pages before winding down this day. Someone is already mentioning pizza. To be fair I forgot to take the frozen clams out of the freeze so we just might have to have a easy cheesey meal after all. I will end up making a delicious pasta sauce, so fresh tomato-wise with carmelized red onion, oregano, rosemary, parsley and anchovy. I will do a funny dance later in the evening and we will have a fire. Senor FF didn’t show his ff here today, which makes me think that he is finally having to deliver some goods.

Savage

Taurus 8° (April 28)

Comprehensive chat with the lawyer in regard to last night’s chat. Feeling even better now. S. is off to get fixins for Full Moon dinner number three!I set myself up to work on the partly sunny deck and was just doing some editing of chapter drafts when I felt this strange pressing sensation on my left shoulder and I thought, being the anxiety ridden freak I am, that, oh well, maybe this is what a stroke or MS feels like and with a sigh I just decided to move my left shoulder and it resulted in this startling sensation, like a flapping in my ear. You see a chickadee had landed on me as I was reading and then when I moved I scared it off, but not too far—it simply alighted to the nearest by branch of cherry tree in blossom.

And my zodiacal diatribe continues: You’ve heard the term “old soul” bandied about, but what about a young one? That’s what you are, Taurus, a young soul, so-called, which is not to say you’re new on the eternal celestial scene (if that could be a thing) but, rather, in our estimation, someone who, it has been determined, is and/or should be learning life’s lesson, and earning its just rewards, from a most archetypally fresh perspective. It’s easiest enough to do in your youth, Taurus, despite being distracted by all those aforementioned curve balls and monkey wrenches; which makes you wonder, as you get older, if you were as available as you could have been to all the good (and goods) life was throwing at you. Regrets, you’ll have a few, but it really is best not to mention, let alone dwell on, them. You wonder if you could have done more, sooner, such that you could have enjoyed a proverbial cocktail of youth and success. But don’t we all. Mostly, it hinges on that performative aspect of being a Taurus player on this stage called life. Could you have performed, and can you keep performing, your part even more to the hilt to dispel any self-doubt that you’ve done all you can to provide yourself every happiness—or did you overplay, and are you still, chewing the scenery, obsessing over your role to the exclusion of other joys you might have afforded yourself if you weren’t so charged with making your mark? Good questions, and ones central to the Taurus female experience wherever we find her along her present timeline.

Original Plumbing

Taurus 7° (April 27)

Our dear friend Raina will pop over today to help me with some plumbing and psychological issues, mainly where the ‘twain meet. I am definitely digging out today and it feels good to get through a number of pages and not feel totally bored or panicked. We will go for a walk again and it is so much warmer than it was yesterday. Amazing night sipping and snacking on olives and cheese and crackers on the deck; and then a lovely roasted chicken with sweet potato chips and kale. We had a savage chat about our real estate situation and am feeling very empowered. Full moon dinner number two! Now some deepish astrological thoughts: Whereas Taurus man is hands down the biggest bullshitter on the astrological block without even knowing it (or pretending he doesn’t), Taurus woman is nothing of the kind, but nonetheless can feel like a fake, counterfeit, when she truly is, to coin some urban slang, “money,” that is to say possessing a quality personality, sociability, pride in appearance, and, at the very least, one superlative talent. Now, if we can only get the entire Taurus female population on board with this…in the meantime, what Taurus does disguise well is her insecurity surrounding what she might consider a lack in any of these or other areas within herself. Such that even at times when Taurus is crumbling inside, she will still seem to be crushing it on the outside, brimming on the surface, nearly feeling it her responsibility to keep up appearances, if not for own, then for others’ sake. Although she doesn’t do so for the purposes of her own gain like her Bull brother will at the drop of a montera (matador’s hat), Taurus woman people-pleases all the same, smiling through even deepest sorrow so as not to be a burden. Even in the rare instances where she begins to confide internal discomfort, she will stop herself, and with a signature wave of her hand that says never mind it’s not important, brushing aside her ill feelings, never wanting to be seen to complain. Putting on a happy face is in large part at the root of what mundane astrology might casually cite as Taurus woman’s love of fashion and cosmetics. In truth, the planet named for the goddess of grace and beauty, Venus works her magic through the substantial second house in literal, tangible ways—makes sense that “things” that are prized for their beauty are therefore more valuable than those that aren’t, beauty, in a sense, being synonymous with quality, carrying higher price tags. Wanting to appear beautiful to the Taurus is a natural instinct and to fashion herself as such isn’t an expression of artifice but one of artistic license and, indeed, responsibility. A nugget of pure gold, for instance, isn’t as valuable as a beautiful object of piece of jewelry made from it.

No Title

Taurus 6° (April 26)

Cutting losses with social media and with errant colleagues—our patience has come to a natural end. Will be chilly today but going to take a long walk in town nonetheless. The same house from which we heard yelling has an aggressive bitch (I’ve never used that word in a proper context!) that came charging at us. I honestly don’t know what S. would have done if she were alone. It was especially freezing near the harbor. Full Moon dinner number one! Anyway I will get some more zodiacal thoughts down on virtual paper: That gaslighting and second guessing: It causes a rift in personality, such that one feels that being their true, natural self isn’t enough, or worse, too much. Taurus females are a sensitive bunch, and they feel the brunt of any assault, no matter how subtle, register in their emotional body which can ultimately manifest physically. To use a bovine metaphor, Taurus feels branded by the labels people slap on her, and they aren’t easy for her to shake off. So as carefree, and even wild, as you are meant to be, Taurus, you are, paradoxically, the most readily yoked and corralled. Now, sometimes it’s not just jealous peers and siblings who take part in cutting you down to their desired size—we had long suspected, and years working with clients has confirmed, that there’s about a fifty-fifty chance that Taurus’s own mother can, if only at times, pile on, incapable of keeping her own jealousy of her daughter in check. Taurus and her mom are generally not cut from the same cloth, the elder being very status- (and self-) conscious, cautious and admonishing, and so she might turn a blind eye to the Taurus being emotionally body-slammed by other children, including her own. More times than not Taurus’ parents lead quite separate lives, even if they’ve remained together under the same roof, and the Bull girl may feel that it is her father alone who sees through the glare of the gaslight for who she truly is.

Causeway To Hull

Taurus 5° (April 25)

Going to get a jump on the food preparation for the week and looking very much forward to seeing the big S. Unfortch the evening will end on a sour note but I think it’s the kind of major Full Moon correction that is indeed called for. And my cosmic ruminations continue thus: The first thing we tell a private client who comes to see us for an individual consultation is that the Sun placement in their chart really signifies the hero’s journey, that it is the you that you are becoming. The Sun symbol is one of completion, a full circle surrounding a central dot, which signifies, among other things, the individual being, feeling centered within a perfect sphere of experience of their own making, their achieved sense of fulfillment and wholeness. And if you don’t believe in the notion that people (re)incarnate as a particular sign to experience and work through the energies and influences and life lessons endemic to that sign for the metaphysical purpose of a more soul-level evolution over manylifetimes, you might nonetheless accept the notion that, if you’re born with Sun in Taurus, then you are here to travel that sign’s particular path, and that your ideas surrounding what constitutes said wholeness, fulfillment, completion, contentment, even success in this lifetime, would be viewed and described in Taurus terms. That is to say your hero’s journey as a Taurus woman is meant to be something of a pure, unadulterated experience whereby you come to understand and fully embrace your own true nature, living a life devoid of apology and self-recrimination, expressing yourself to the full extent of your power, possessing all the creature comforts you crave while never losing sight of the simple joys in life, to be forever awed by nature and human ingenuity, alike; to never stop learning life lessons and earning humanitarian respect and appreciation for contributing to the comfort and ease of others, particularly the “innocents” of the world—children or those who are otherwise helpless and vulnerable; and in the process, to experience the power and joy of meaningful bonds and mutual love. Much of what constitutes growth for you, Taurus, will indeed be achieved most poignantly through your intimate relationships, and of all the signs you are the one most likely to have multiple loves and one-on-one relationships; hopefully coming to see that it may very well be natural for you not to remain in partnerships due societal pressures or your conditioned own. Just because a relationship hasn’t lasted, it doesn’t mean it was a failure or even that the love is gone, if it was truly there in the first place. For all of us, mates reflect where we ourselves are in our own lives, and the fact that you may have many loves is a testament to the many changes you go through in your lifetime. Lasting bonds for the Taurus woman typically entail both partners growing together, but separately, in parallel fashion. In your youth, Taurus, experiencing first love, you will fall so deeply that you can’t imagine it could be more total a romantic bonding than it is; or that, upon breaking up, that you will ever experience anything near as profound as all that; but you always do, even more utter than before.

Tomorrow And Tomorrow

Taurus 4° (April 24)

Spent the day cleaning up and getting everything in order. S. will say she is staying another day and will get ears pierced. I am getting my brain further around everything currently on my plate and it’s cool. I really do feel that I have plenty of time to tick all the necessary boxes. And so I will record some more astrological thoughts: As a rule, people born under fixed signs aren’t initiators, instigators or originators of ideas, waves or movements in their creative work the way the cardinal signs, which precede them on the cosmic wheel, can be. Cardinals, though fantastic at coming up with ideas, have a more difficult time realizing them. Fixed signs, Taurus in particular, are fantastic at, forgiving the pun, beefing up said ideas, fleshing them out and putting meat on their bones, providing substance and sustainability, two Taurus watchwords if there ever were any. Fixed signs drill down (and sometimes get stuck) embodying all things associated with being fixed (okay, maybe not all). Taurus energy can be stubborn, obstinate, determined, deliberate, grounded, immovable, terms to describe a real bull itself. Taurus people believe that this is part and parcel of avoiding complication and confrontation, from which they steer clear at all cost. Taurus will yes people to death while still not altering their position and, if they feel pushed too far, they will simply remove themselves from situations or relationships, cutting off all communication. For, you, Taurus it is all about profit and loss, and if there is an excess of agita involved in your personal or professional dealings that doesn’t make an association worth your time and energy you will cut your losses and put your investment elsewhere. Even dead ends for you are naturally perceived as opportunities, closed doors only hastening you toward open windows of them.

Barf

Taurus 3° (April 23)

Woke up sick as a dog. I never puke but omgrrrr. Even the tiniest sips of water resulted in running to the loo within minutes. Was the strangest thing. Obviously can’t eat and had to cancel my entire workday. Scary. There were about six hours there where I thought this is never going to stop. I really thought I had some kind of permanent condition where anything I put in my mouth wouldn’t stay down. Giant stainless steel bowl bedside. This is gruesome. Then miraculously it subsided. I lost about five lbs. in just a day—how is that even possible? I am going to binge watch a Swedish program called The Restaurant (ironic that I would watch a show with so much food in it). I’m starving but I don’t dare put any food in this stomach. Anyway, I can jot down a few notes: The personal evolutionary path of the Taurus woman is one of remaining present, progressing moment to moment, playing a good ground game, leaving no stone unturned, trusting in the cumulative power of one’s efforts, focusing on the work at hand, maybe whistling all the while, and allowing it to work its magic on you. If the Taurus lad is the gardener of the zodiac, then you, Taurus lady, are the metaphoric garden itself. Neither gardens, nor the surrounding walls which define them—those natural defenses we’ve already done discussed—are ready-made things, nor should they be. They are created plot by plot, and brick by brick, otherwise there would be no satisfaction. The second house of the zodiac associated with Taurus is all about content (and the contentment that comes from its cultivation, but we’ll circle back to that later). The second house rules both time and money, practically indistinguishable from an astrological perspective—something that old you-have-either-have-one-or-the other adage wisely asserts—as they are weighted equally, as commodities; the same way actual things of value—assets, possessions, stock portfolios, etc.—are one and the same as the conceptual ones—an innate sense of value and esteem, the self-sort, especially; inherent talents, estimable skills and abilities; and one’s own value system, all falling into the second house of physical substance and/or that of our character, all being one and the same in the divine, cosmic, zodiacal mind. That which you possess, Taurus, must be earned, even, indeed especially, the soaring talents with which you entered this world.

Take A Pass

Taurus 2° (April 22)

Today is going to be a day of focusing on what I can no longer tolerate. Who knew I had standards? But I guess I do. I am surely feeling overwhelmed and I won’t realize until later how this is beginning to affect me, physically. Anyway, there are more cosmic things to talk about: Being endemic to his sign in any case, the theme of objectification can carry over into a sort of self-form as he matures—in the straight Taurus, this may manifest in his identifying as an aptly named Bull type, that is to say a so-called superior male specimen who derives pleasure from stepping in to engage in sexual activity with a woman who is left wanting by her husband or male partner, the cuckhold figure, considered, by all in the mix, to be the lesser male figure. It might seem we made an quick, sharp turn into a sexual place, here, and we did; but it helps to illustrate a more sweeping point: Taking on this sexual persona is an extreme, vivid manifestation of what, to some degree or other, the Taurus man would consider his role in the full sexual arena at large. He likes to be viewed as the premier “choice” beefcake in any erotic equation, just as he enjoys not only the genuflective worship it invites, but also even if just a hint of humiliation he might impose in the process.  On top of which, being the special guest star in such a scenario, he doesn’t have to deal with any relationship muss or fuss. It’s all a big rush for his ego, which is just one element of his personal self that requires fluffing. And, in this analysis, we might infer that his need to play, at once so detached and yet dominant role, even if he does so affectionately, might indicate an underlying insecurity on the subject of his manhood. The irony being that Taurus tends to overemphasize and draw strength from his sense of physical prowess while it is in regard to his emotional state, particularly his ability to sustain a loving commitment, where he has the most difficulty manning up. A lifetime experience being appreciated for his appearance, if not his Adonis-like figure, and/or for the performative façade he has carefully cultivated year on year can add up to a feeling of emptiness that is all too easily exposed in intimate relationships. He might brush off this fact with a casual excuse that, well, you know me, I could never be satisfied with just one wo/man, turning what is a lack in his ability to invest deeply into an ironic point of pride in his roving bachelor status. Even in this, he might find a way to inspire envy in his friends, whom he may insinuate are whipped in their own relationships. In itself, this attitude is a form of degradation, but Taurus is prone to puff himself up by subtly putting others down, making them feel less-than. Such that the sense of self-aggrandizement the straight Taurus might gain in playing the Bull in an erotic setting is drawn, in equal parts, from providing a superlative sexual experience for the woman and a humiliating one for her husband, boyfriend or what have you. Again, we use this as an extreme example to illustrate more broad Taurus tendencies: Another being that he is not what you might consider aspirational in his relationships, should he enter into one—not all signs are—and for the very reason that this guy cannot easily cope with being outshone. He might take a backseat in decision making, deferring to a more imperious partner in most matters which he would readily delegate in any event, allowing them to shoulder the burdens of everyday life, providing him license to be that much more the divested, shiny object, steeling all the focus that he may. The Bull persona is surely the performative star of the sexual show and, though the other players are cast as so-called submissives, it is really they who call the shots, inviting him to make a cameo appearance, but disposing him at will. He might be the man on top in the immediate situation, but he is nonetheless the second banana (forgiving the pun) in the larger scheme of things. His is actually, in that sense, a passive role with a signature Taurus twist, and he might easily find it has one day been re-cast with a younger, stronger character. Just one of the many ways that life can feel for the Taurus like a race against time, his lifelong gazing into the looking glass morphing from sense of self-appreciation to dread of what the future holds, as one day mirror-mirror will provide a different answer to the daily proverbial question.

In The Wash

Taurus 1° (April 21)

Feeling a little bit more in the swing today but we shall see what the day brings. I have anxiety leaving the house alone even for a minute. I will run and out and get everything so that I needn’t leave the property today because, frankly, I don’t think it is safe to do so. Nobody can rob me of my peace—something I am reminded of and of which I must continually remind myself. I will reach out to friends whose birthdays are today and will know what’s what on those scores. I will talk to the lawyer and get some help in regard to filing restraining type order. I will also fail miserably to stick to my plan. The truth is I can’t continue to function they way I have been trying to all these years. I’m in a bad situation and that is the truth. I can’t say anymore here but I need to have a good long talk with myself. I pose myself the following question: how the effing cripes did you get here? How did you let yourself be taken so advantage of? This is a different kind of rock bottom I suppose. I’m neither motivated nor well enough for the situation methinks. But the world keeps turning and I have some book to astrology to write so here is some more on that:

And when it comes the Taurus man’s love life, too, we understand that he might not be as predatory as other guys on the astrological block, that he prefers to be the proverbial love object, which he should be, in keeping with his cosmic archetypes as the adored consort steeped in husbandry. But that doesn’t mean he needs to give himself to the highest bidder paying him compliments. A strong partner, even a dominant one is fine, as it allows Taurus man all the more dreamtime he desires, but he should (warning: cattle pun ahead) steer clear of the control freaks needing to make every decision. Real bulls are myopic; astrology’s Bulls are metaphorically so. Taurus must learn to see the red flags when they are being waved at him and be that much more self-determined. Letting Eve make key decisions in Eden didn’t necessarily end well. And when it comes to women, the straight Taurus man does have a way of inviting trouble. Being laidback is one thing, even a little laziness is good for the pulse rate, but an excess of passivity can be truly problematic. Taurus must learn to take the proverbial bull (that would be himself) by the horns, lest he find himself battered, especially in the arena of love. As the premier pacifist we understand you want to avoid conflict at all costs, but sometimes it costs you. There is an old Bugs Bunny cartoon in which there is a character, a so-called boxer named Ravishing Ronald, a Gorgeous George parody. He is a quintessentially Taurus figure, a vainglorious Adonis with long blond tresses tucked into a hairnet, who is carried into the ring on a dais by worshippers to meet his opponent, The Crusher, who ends up squeezing Ronald into said hairnet and using him as a punching bag. All too often Taurus will mistake drive and strength in a would-be significant other for what will reveal itself to be abuse extreme control and even abuse.

Mullet Mania

Taurus 0° (April 20)

Watched The Serpent. Didn’t get much sleep last night and doing one big catch up once again. Plus planning the menu. But I am officially into the Cancer man bit today so that feels good. FF has taken to be outside back as early as six-thirty which is when S. is visible in the kitchen. He is a predator. I hope he gets the book thrown at him. I forgot about Elliot Smith. I will want to listen to him tonight maybe. Should be an interesting next couple of days with S. going on the road until the weekend. I can only hope there will be no incidents to report. Now some more mythic thoughts on Aries: The kicker is she cloaks herself in the most primal, chthonian of female (Gaia) energy by getting under Pallas’ giant skin. In this way we see Athena drawing power from the feminine and the masculine fairly equally, in one sense, taking full license, covering all bases, no source of force to be denied her. We might also interpret his to mean that the goddess recognizes no distinction between the masculine and feminine principles, being the embodiment of the perfect blend thereof.  We are reminded of the Origin of Love song from the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the lyrics of which actually reference war with the giants and speak to a primordial time when the various sexes were all rolled into one. The name Hedwig, by the way, is pretty on brand, deriving from the Old High German Haduwig, that combines hadu, meaning “battle, combat” and wig, “fight, or duel.” Pallas also simply means “spear-toting.”And we venture to say that the Aries woman would be fairly down with this mythological rumination, and that these interpretations ring true on a soul level. Beneath her signature primitive good looks, often characterized by a jutting cave-womanly jawline and a thick, heavy brow, a hallmark of owly wisdom, many an Aries feels herself a mix of polarities, eschewing labels of sexual or gender identity, feeling very much beyond impositions of a binary. She simply is who she is, and she will waste little time in life trying to fit some societal mold. Aries can put on a fiercely sociable face, but she is at her core an intensely private person who generally leads an insular life with the person with whom she partners. In fact she often attracts (over-) protective types who try but will consistently fail to keep her reined in or one who is so indulgent as to constantly be tempting her with trips and outings restricted to a tight twosome.  [I have not figured out how to end this]
