Taurus 10° (April 30)

I need to cut the crap and fast. My anxiety level is starting to spike again due to all the swirling factors in my life. I do think I reached a new limit. And I definitely need to take proactive approach and soothe my nerves. Going to focus on some astrological thoughts: Depicted as a beautiful woman with a headdress of cow’s horns, the ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor has dual manifestations: she is sometimes Hesat, the goddess in the benign form of a snow-white heifer, representing purity, whose milk gave life to all humanity, and Sekhmet, the goddess in furious, destructive aspect. She was daughter, mother and consort, all, to the principle male gods, including of both Horus (the sky) and Ra (the sun) and symbolic mother to all pharaohs. Later, the goddess Isis begins to assume elements of her estate and fuse with her, Isis and Hathor paralleling Io and Hera. She was said to represent the ancient Egyptian perception of femininity—women were legally equal to men and could own property, providing them an unusually elevated status as compared with other cultures. As a goddess of love and sexual expression, she was likened to the Greek Aphrodite and Roman Venus, with whom she shares association with the morning and evening stars. She is a goddess of fertility, of joy, and above all, gratitude, an attribute one doesn’t often see as being the province of a deity’s power. After teaching humanity life lessons as Sekhmet, she reassumes her benevolent form of Hathor, a benefactress providing beautiful, inspiring gifts to humanity. She is the primordial mother from whom all other goddesses are considered to be offshoots, grafted from her. To worship the great cow goddess Hathor all one had to do was, simply, offer her gratitude. To appreciate herself as an incarnation of the primordial female, Taurus woman taps into the potential for great personal power and self-development. In your youth, Taurus, it serves you to embrace the long body of your life, imagining yourself as the wise woman you will someday become, showing deference for the mature women in your life, celebrating their seasoned experience; likewise, as you get older, it is important to acknowledge and give props to your younger self, your inner sense of inalienable purity and innocence that enabled and sustained your life journey, and to ask yourself how you can be a living example to the younger women in your life. These elements of self eternally coexist within you; you are born with a voice of wisdom to guide you through your early journeying just as the voice of your inner child is one you must heed to the end of your days, as it continues to uplift and provide you joy and a renewable resource of authenticity and agency to affect positive change for yourself, foremost, and others as a benevolent byproduct.
