TAURUS (April 20-May 20):


Real Astrology


Dear Rob Brezsny: I am Chandra Gupti, born May 16, 1979 in New Delhi. Right now I am not well settled due to searing problems and swampy hurt. Day by day my position goes down lower and darker, with ... Rob Brezsny /Images/Imported/Article_Thumbnails/taurus-copy_jpg_27.jpg 10/8/2008 0:00 12/31/2099 0:00 609cd616-be17-4431-9235-476d65937122 TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Now that we're midway through 2010, it's time to assess how well you're taking advantage of this year's good fortune. So let me ask you, Taurus: Have you been expanding your web of connections? Have you honed and deepened your networking skills? Have you taken bold steps to refine your influence over the way your team or crew or gang is evolving? The first half of the year has been full of encouragement in these areas, and the coming months will be even more so.

That's the approach I urge you to take with the saboteur that has inserted itself into your otherwise thriving patch of heaven. There's no need to express hatred or rage. In fact, it's better to be lucid and neutral as you thoroughly remove the invasive influence and assert your right to care for what you love.

Wherever you are right now, I invite you to look down at your left palm and imagine that you see the following scene: an infinity sign whose shape is made not by a thin black line but by a series of small yellow rubber duckies. The duckies are flowing along slowly in continuous motion. They are all wearing gold crowns, each of which is studded with three tiny rubies. With resonant tones that belie their diminutive and comic appearance, the duckies are singing you your favorite song. It makes you feel safe, brave, and at home in the world. What else can see you see there? What happens next?

That might be more than you need. If you just plant enough peanuts to fill a basketball court, you'll still have enough to make over 3,200 sandwiches, which would provide you with more than eight every day for a year. This is a good phase of your astrological cycle to be thinking thoughts like these, Taurus. You will have more insight and motivation than usual if you formulate long-term plans to create abundance for yourself.

That's because you're in a seeing double" phase -- a time when magic will come through repetition, and via duplication, and while you're in the throes of imitation. To take maximum advantage of the dualistic cosmic rhythms, don't seek just one of anything. Don't do anything just once. Two is where the power lies. Pairing brings potency.
