Spring is now in full force and the natural world is quite busy producing and multiplying in a surge of activity. Taurus is steadfast in its furtility and production. There is little in the way of wavering. Here the universe is "as strong as a bull" and it is equally "bullheaded" .
Taurus is ruled by Venus and is reflected the The Heirophant in the Tarot. As an earth sign it also is seen in the Suit of Pentacles. Venus is prevalent in The Emperess and and so it also has a place in this months story.
As we focus on lovely Taurus we will be working with the energies of fuduncity, reproduction, passion and fertility. The bull, is an ancient multicultural symbol of fecundity, creative power and the eternal cycle of life, death and resurrection. It is no accident that fertility celebrations, such as May Day and maypole festivities occur while the Sun is in Taurus. The horns of the Taurean bull are emblematic of the horns of the lunar crescent; hence the close tie between Taurus (the hierophant or high priest) and the Moon (the high priestess).
Bring your cards and a notebook. We will start with a discussion session and then break into small groups for practice with readings.
I am asking for a $5.00 contribution to cover expenses. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
