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. 

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.
