“How would your life be different if… You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day… You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others” – Steve Maraboli

Helios on Eros in Taurus– Ah, those lazy days where you wake up around noon, content with clean sheets, sunlight softly cascading over your bedroom and caressing you and the beauty in your bed like a gentle lover- The world finally starts to make sense. Those days, my dear Heretics, are the days we live for- and they are due to Eros in Taurus. With the asteroid God of lust, passion, and indulgence in the sign of pleasure and earthly delights, all of a sudden we stop chasing our desires like we did when he was in the raunchy and energetic sign of Aries– No, now its time to take a different approach….
Listen, I know you wore yourself ragged during his transit in Aries, trying every scenario you could think of to win the prizes of your desires, but it wasn’t quite enough, was it? At the end of the day, the more you chased, the more your goals seemed further out of reach. It’s hella frustrating- and who could blame you for getting upset, then using that anger as a drive to push harder in pursuit of what you want? Of course, this only made the object of your desire fly a little farther with every push. So how do you win?
I know that it feels like you failed, but I promise you that you haven’t- You’re still in this game, even though it looks like your cause is lost. What you need is a change in your strategy. This is no longer the time to chase or drive, its the time to pause, withdraw, and let your opportunity come to you. See, the magic of Taurus isn’t in energy or effort (Though Taurean stamina is legendary), it’s in its patience. You need to take a step back and see if this is really what you want. Have you been swept up in a whirlwind of emotion that you just don’t want to admit you were wrong about?
Wherever you have Taurus in your chart, you need to question what you really desire right now, what will sate your ravenous appetites and leave you feeling full. You also need to analyze your emotions and determine what internal lack you are trying to satisfy through ephemeral external pleasure. Work on yourself, and live for your needs- not what you think others want.
Seek your own happiness first and foremost, Heretics.
