How do we stay grounded ... when the ground keeps moving? The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is upon us with answers. Full proactive disclosure, I feel very protective of “Taurus”. A sign that protects. You see, I find most of the analysis on our fixed-earth sign undervalues the gifts they give. “Taurus” is often contextualized as stubborn, comfort loving, materialistic hedonists. And while they may tarry in that territory, I haven’t experienced that from the many “Taurus” I love.
What Taurus takes a stand for, above all else, is security. They help us stay grounded in security … even as the ground and environment moves. Nature proves this. Look at trees! They can bend without breaking and despite external chaos, they return to center and return to safety. Just like the fixed-earth Taurus is a personality structure that can bend without breaking.
Now that we know Taurus is a sign that stands for security, let’s review what “Security” means in today’s world. Money doesn’t guarantee it, external circumstances don’t qualify it. I think it’s what Taurus teaches me which is: pick your 2 values - only two is Taurus’ number but Taurus is a fixed-commitment sign and when we have more than 2 values, we don’t even have priorities - then situate which behavior supports these values. Next, apply your values into behavior and you’ll have the existential realization that you are exactly who you say you are and your life proves it.
Isn’t that what helps us stay grounded when the ground moves? When we know what our values are and which behaviors support those values in prolonged uncertainty, anticipatory grief, and other tricky things? Our values are systems that encourage courage. We can rely on our Taurus ruled values as a system for safety and courage because we can’t always rely on external circumstances especially when things get very complicated.
I’m protective of Taurus because I can see how they were mostly born programmed with a clear sense of their values; who they value, what they value, and why. Which is a beautiful dimension of their sign. And since the culture undervalues meaningful values, we talk about other one-dimensional Taurus things. One of the many reasons why I love writing for The Magic of I is the readers are very critically thinking and appreciate complexity. So I hope you can examine this Taurus context with critical thought and complexity to and frame living into our values as one of the most tried and true paths for security.
The Chart of the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus has Venus in Capricorn conjunct the Ascendant and the Sun’s in the 11th House while the Moon’s in the 5th House. So I’m thinking this Lunar Eclipse will situate our values in relationship to our relationships. Are we valuing our relationships? From our lovers, to our friends, and the dynamics in between? Are we being valued by our relationships? How do we talk about the role of “values” in relationships to understand how people feel valued by us and we feel valued by them? All of this and more is under the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus’ jurisdiction. Let us find connection, safety, and value together.

“Emotionally detached”, Aquarius? Who said that? Where?

From there, you can increase your most accurate level of self-acceptance and find relationships that equal your acceptance.
