Taurus 11° (May 1)

S. will head off to Boston today and I will focus on writing but get lost a bit in the process of making meals and trying to stay on top of other household chores. Here are some thoughts of an astrological nature: The second astrological house is all about content, and Taurus contentment is derived from knowing, owning, the value you bring to the proverbial table. By the same token, you must be careful not to be grabby or grubbing with money or time. We have observed many a Taurus take on the role of breadwinner in her relationship, partners increasingly relying on the combined talents and hard-work ethic that women of the sign possess. And though loved ones will express gratitude for her ability to generate wealth, if not just plain old keep a roof over their heads, this is not the kind of appreciation Taurus should settle for. Just because she can bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan doesn’t mean she should. If you do, Taurus, you must make absolutely sure that the partnership is otherwise balanced. Being someone’s cash cow is a recipe for relationship disaster. While, of all the women in the zodiac, Taurus most needs clear demonstrations of affection and desire in equal measure, and to be romanced and at least a bit spoiled by a mate on a semi-regular basis, and typically none too subtly. Taurus understands effort and she wants to be paid tribute; the more overt and obvious the display of affection the more of an aphrodisiacal effect it will have on her. We have always said that nobody enjoys being a girl more than Taurus. Straight women of the sign are probably the most binary in their view of sexual identity and gender roles of all the females on the astrological block, while the gay Taurus tends toward being more femme in her relationships. For all Taurus women, sex is a celebration of the feminine spirit and experience, whatever the manner in which it is expressed. And that’s as it should be. Much healing for Taurus woman in life comes from being in touch with her sensuality, and even her grooming routines are more empowering than meet the eye. Nobody finds more pleasure than she in dolling herself up, which is, ironically, a natural expression of her aesthetic, that all-important Taurean taste, but also a demonstrative means of self-appreciation. In pampering herself with beauty treatments, lotions and potions and the like, we see echoes of Esther’s ritual preparation for sacred marriage, and even the dressing room scenes in All About Eve and Opening Night portray the nightly ceremony of costume, hair-and-makeup, the Evil Queen asking her mirror for validation. Typically, it’s for the emotional state of the Taurus woman who doesn’t highly prioritize her appearance that we will have some concern, as making little to no effort on this score is often a sign of depression. And it works both ways: Nothing will provide an emotional pick-me-up more for the Taurus than a slew of spa and salon visits followed by a shopping spree. 

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.
