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. 

I am now in my seventh year of writing this Blague. Year six, I went through the first five years, and excerpted from five Blagues per day, as a way of taking inventory of what came before. If there are any blocks of text following this paragraph that would be from the corresponding day last, the sixth, year.

To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree point of the Sabian Symbol may at times be one degree higher than the one listed here. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°,  for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period.
