Helios’ Astrological Angle on Pallas Athene in Taurus– This life… it can be amazing if we let it be, but too often we get caught up in the rat race of this life, and forget to stop and smell the roses. Luckily, Pallas Athene, the Warrior Goddess asteroid of Strategy, Wisdom, and Politics is coming back to Taurus to help make sure that you get the message!
Listen, we are in Eclipse season*, and these are not easy ones that we have facing us down. I’m sure you remember the fun meltdowns that you had last year with these guys, and this year is shaping up to be incredibly similar. These are going to be tough. You are not going to know which way is up during them, and there will be storms in your mind and your heart. Things will fall apart. How lucky for us all, then, that Pallas will be there for us to hunker down and cling to.
Pallas in Taurus tells us to stop overanalyzing, and trust our instincts. She tells us that our best plan now is to wait for a plan to materialize. It is not the easiest for some of us to hear, myself included, but sometimes a stall tactic is the only tactic left in the playbook. Sometimes you just have to run out the clock. Breathe, take a moment, and get your head on straight before you get back in the fight- This is your rest to gather your strength once again.
What you need is calm, peace, and quiet. You aren’t going to get much of that, so you need to take it while it’s offered, and if it isn’t offered you need to carve it out for yourself. No matter how berserk you go, you are no good to anyone in a fight if you go completely off the reservation. Lose yourself now and lose the fight for good. Insanity is no strategy, so do whatever you need to in order to keep your mind whole.
It’s not just your mind that you must guard right now, however- Pallas in Taurus is intimately connected to body knowledge and instinct. Listen to your body now, and what it is telling you. Keep it active, and keep it moving. When you need to be still, be still. Watch what you put into it now, and get your diet in order. As much natural/ real/ raw food that you can eat now, the better. You must prioritize your health now because doing so prioritizes yourself. If you sacrifice your health in favor of more work, or dangerous ephemeral highs, then you will be robbing yourself and hurting your future now. This is a time to play it safe and get back to your roots.
Most importantly, quit your moping and bellyaching. Now is the time to really take the reins of your life, withdraw from public bullshit and get your house in order behind the scenes. Work your ass off now to party later. Get your priorities in order so that what you really want is achievable- and for fuck’s sake, start working for yourself instead of for others! Apologize for nothing that you do for yourself now, as no one is going to sacrifice for you, only themselves. It’s time to grow up and make your dreams happen for yourself. Pallas will help, but you have to start the work yourself- and now is as good a time as any!
