ToB- 4:54 AM
- People with Taurus rising tend to be strong, persistent, slow to
change, determined, stable, quiet (until pushed too far - then there
will be trouble), practical, stubborn, non-aggressive, patient,
affectionate, loyal, hard-working, passive and unassuming in general,
and fixed in their convictions with a general slow pace of mind.
Taureans can be led or coaxed, but never pushed or driven. Resources
and possessions, whether people or finances are very important to you.
You want to build and make things grow, but you can't be hurried. You
want to get your hands on things and see the practical results of your
own hard work. You are good at taking what others have started then
carrying on. Success comes to you by sheer persistence and will.
Your love of sweet or rich food can incline you to put on weight. Try
to be less rigid in all you do. Tame any jealousy and instinct to
possessiveness. You hate and fear sickness and pain. Spiritual
lesson to learn: Detachment. Venus rules Taurus so Venus will be
important in your chart.
- You are adaptable, clever, inquisitive, eloquent, witty, and perhaps
high-strung. You want to know something about a lot of things. Your
speeches and writings reflect your own personal opinions. You may have
jittery nerves which keep your body slim, but which could cause
nervous disorders. You love talking about what interests you.
- Your manner of thought and speech is slow and quite deliberate. You
do not change your mind quickly and see no reason to do so. You are
determined, practical, methodical, and conservative in most things you
do. You have patience and the ability to stick with things until the
end. You may assimilate material at a slower pace than others, but
once a concept is learned, it is never forgotten. You hate being
forced or rushed into a decision or an action, especially if you have
not been given time to think it all through and evaluate the
practicalities of the situation. Once your mind is made up, that's
it. It will take a lot to undo it. Perseverance is one of your best
traits. You enjoy sustaining what others have started, especially if
you can see tangible, practical results. You love to build things. You
succeed not so much because of your mental brilliance, but because you
have the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its
completion. You may have an artistic or musical aptitude. Perhaps
you sing or speak for a living. Common sense is not uncommon in you.
- You need to feel a strong sense of personal or self-worth. A desire
for power through personal possessions, talents and money may engage
your energies. Money comes and goes easily. You are generous and
ambitious, but can be extravagant and grasping. You must watch a
tendency to be possessive of or "lord over" people and things. If the
Sun is afflicted by aspect, perhaps you do not feel loved or feel
worthy of love.
- Geminians are friendly, clever, talkative, versatile, curious,
perceptive, intuitive, and logical. At times they can also be quite
contradictory, restless, two-faced, critical, and impatient. Gemini
people enjoy and need work that includes a great deal of variety.
They love to do several things all at the same time, sometimes making
them late for appointments. They abhor boredom.
Geminians tend to flit from one experience to another, gathering in
all types of information along the way, but seldom getting to the
depth of any subject. They go broad and not deep. Persistence is not
their strong suit. Gaining knowledge and disseminating it is their
real talent. Hence, they make wonderful salespeople or teachers if
they stick around long enough to get all the facts instead of only
half the story. Even if they do not possess all the facts, since they
are never at a loss for words, they will continue with their story as
if they did have all the facts.
It is important for a Geminian to seek intellectual satisfaction.
Mental stagnation turns them off, so they read extensively and
communicate widely in order to satisfy this longing for mental
stimulation. This discontent can make them either very ambitious, or
it can incline them to jump from one thing to another, searching for
the greener grass which never appears.
Geminians usually think quickly on their feet and have the ability to
use the right words in any situation. They possess tremendous wit and
a good sense of humor. Other people may have difficulty in keeping up
with their rapid change of subjects.
Because Geminians think so quickly, they often finish other people's
sentences for them. This can be most frustrating for the person trying
to express their own thoughts. There is a need to learn how to
control the tongue and allow slower people to express their own
opinions and ideas.
Since Geminians have the capacity to see both sides of any issue, they
may fluctuate back and forth between opposing viewpoints. They will
usually tend to side with the opinion of whomever they happen to be
with at the moment. Then they change as the circumstances change.
Indecisiveness is a problem for Geminians.
Geminians are usually emotionally detached. They use their minds
rather than their hearts to find their way through things. Logic and
reason are their guidelines. They are able to understand what makes
other people behave as they do, but they have difficulty in projecting
themselves into the emotional reactions of the person involved.
Some of the negative traits that Geminians possess are lack of
concentration and focus, undependability, fickleness, indecisiveness,
superficiality, wishful thinking, and dreaminess. They can also be
pretty good at nagging.
Geminians need to work on getting their mind under control. Their
nervous system is highly strung. If they don't learn to control their
nerves, they are apt to become ill. The way out of this difficulty is
to take the emphasis off themselves and lose it through service to
others. Above all, the Geminian needs to learn to channel (control)
his energy and his mind.
- You are probably conservative and perhaps find security in land or
real estate or in old, traditional ways, beliefs, things or antiques.
You may dislike change because of an unconscious fear of the unknown.
You may have a desire to accumulate possessions, for security reasons.
There may be many responsibilities and problems in your home or family
life. You may be somewhat of a tyrant or strict disciplinarian in
your home or with your family. Inner worries may cause ulcers. You
may be a caretaker of someone or of your parents, perhaps because of a
karmic debt to them. The later part of life can be more rewarding if
you learn the lessons life has to teach you in your earlier years. If
not, then old age may not be as pleasant.
- You possess diplomatic, organizing, executive, and leadership ability
along with a strong will. You tend to be self-reliant, conservative,
and are extremely efficient. You may have difficulty expressing your
emotions and your affections, which may make you appear cold and
unloving. You need love, but may not know how to go about giving or
receiving it, thus you may isolate yourself from others. Your love is
motivated by strong feelings of duty and responsibility and you show
your love by taking care of business and doing what is required or by
giving material things to loved ones instead of yourself, which is
what they really want. On the negative side, you may be cruel and
quick-tempered, jealous, and may resort to underhanded means to
satisfy your ambitions. Heart trouble is possible with this position.
You need to be admired for your ability to get things done efficiently
- Romances and attachments to children can be decidedly emotional.
There is a constant search for pleasure and emotional self-expression.
Activities concerning children are pronounced. Too much emphasis may
be placed upon having a good time and being the center of attention.
There are mood swings and fickleness in love affairs. A heightened
desire to feel loved and important may need to be controlled. You are
a pleasure-seeking person with a lot of charm. Fluctuating emotions
may interfere with your creativity. Concerning vocation: The
theatrical, exhibitionist, creative dimensions of the work needs are
increased. Teaching and taking care of children are emphasized.
Speculation and the dramatizing of all experiences are possible.
- You are very sensitive, cautious, and perhaps shy about showing others
your feelings. Though you may love and care for someone a great deal,
you rarely express those feelings openly and freely. You are perhaps
more mental than emotional, at least outwardly. Very often your love
for someone will be expressed by trying to help them, doing something
tangible to benefit them, or serving them in some way. It may be
difficult for you to receive warmth, affection, or appreciation, for
you often feel that you don't really deserve it or that "they don't
really mean it". You can therefore seem rather cool and aloof, much
more so than you feel. At times you can be so critical of others that
you drive them and their love away. You need to learn how to forgive
yourself and others when you or they do not measure up to perfection.
This need of yours for perfection can be quite stifling to your own
happiness. You tend to be industrious, trustworthy, intuitive,
reserved, practical and down-to-earth, especially where emotions are
concerned. Intelligence, usefulness and fastidiousness are important
themes. You have the ability to analyze people and situations and,
then, find the quickest, most efficient method of accomplishing
whatever is needed. This may make you an excellent housekeeper, nurse
and/or manager. You must, however, watch your tendency to nit-pick or
to become overly fussy concerning small details. You like to serve
others, but find it difficult to understand the feelings of others.
Your greatest need is to learn tolerance and to serve those around
- You possess strong intuition and good business sense. You have an
analytical mind, with courage, fortitude and an interest in the
metaphysical world. You may have clairvoyant abilities. There is a
possibility of an inheritance. There may be concern or difficulty
over money through marriage or through a business partner. There can
be financial upheavals and transformation may come through this means.
You search for the meaning to life and may develop a fascination or
interest in death and the afterlife. You want to know how the
Universe ticks. This position develops insight, self-awareness,
independence and regeneration. Any tendency to dominate, control, or
possess others must be dealt with in a positive manner. A strong
desire nature will need to be overcome if regeneration is to occur.
- This position may bring opportunity and expansion as well as success
and honor to you in your profession or in your community. Much of the
reason is your congenial and generous nature. You have a magnetic
personality and people sense you will not let them down. Many
opportunities will arise which are of benefit to you and to society as
a whole. There is a strong sense of responsibility toward your career
and toward personal achievement. You have the ability to get others to
believe in your expansion-oriented, long-range plans, dreams and
- You are a humanitarian and are concerned with the welfare of all
people. You believe in the universality of life and the brotherhood
of man. Reform and large group projects appeal to you as they give
you wide scope for your own personal growth and expansion. You work
well with others because of your inventive mind, your keen judgment,
your fine intellect and your friendliness. You are intuitive,
tolerant and sociable. You make an ideal diplomat, labor relation
specialist or personnel manager because of your knack for handling
various groups of people.
- This confers intuition, originality, inventiveness and creativity.
Humanitarian ideals are important to you. Unusual friendships with
unusual people are indicated. Friendships, goals and dealings with
groups can change rather suddenly. You make friends easily, but prefer
many acquaintances with only a few intimate friends. Your friends may
see you as being somewhat aloof. You could be quite a rebel or
reformer and it would be best if you use these energies along
constructive lines rather than the opposite.
- You may have intense emotional reactions and perhaps repressed desires
and paranoia. People may sense this and cause problems for you.
There can be trouble through slander or with secret enemies. You may
have need to overcome deep, hidden, inner resentments. You may be
subject to false accusations by hidden enemies. You feel an
aloneness. Your energy should be directed toward gaining an
understanding of the meaning of life and for the development of
harmony and oneness with humanity. A love of working in secret or
behind the scenes can make you effective in getting the job done.
- You are aggressive, pioneering, adventurous, and always on the outlook
to start new projects. You hate restraint and don't like to be told
to do something or how to do it. You want to lead, not follow. At
times you can be headstrong, impulsive, and impatient. Waiting is not
something that appeals to you. You go after what you want with great
zeal and you do not take "no" for an answer. You love competition and
anything that allows you to test or prove yourself. Cooperation is not
your strong suit and you can be very self-willed, self-absorbed, and
selfish at times. The "me-first" attitude is strong in you. You are
self-reliant and hate depending or relying on others. You need to be
your own person and do things your way, even if it might not be the
best way. Your best talent is in getting things off the ground
quickly. If initial success does not come quickly, you may get tired
of that project and move to the next. Sustaining is not your strong
side. Long term efforts are not as appealing to you as quick, short
term affairs that you can finish with quickly so you can start
something else. Energy and enthusiasm are your strong side. Self-
control is important for you to learn so you don't burn out. Physical
activity and keeping in shape appeals to you. You may be prone to
accidents due to haste. You need to learn to stick to a project until
it is finished before rushing off on a new endeavor. You must learn to
control your temper and impulsiveness.
- Your love of solitude and being your own best company may cause you to
want to retreat from society. Pleasures are enjoyed in secret or
behind the scenes. Clandestine relationships are possible. Self-
indulgence through drink, drugs or sex can bring on self-undoing.
There is a strong sense of compassion and a willingness to help and
serve others. You may be a sucker for a good sob story. Success by
social standards is unimportant to you. You want an understanding of
the meaning of life. There is a tendency to keep relationships with
the opposite sex a secret. You seldom reveal your innermost feelings.
This position usually gives an interest in psychic or occult subjects.
- Venus desires relationships, sociality, and affection. Aries is
forthright, demanding and wants to take the lead. Therefore, you may
be very ardent and pursuing in relationships. Your feelings and
passions are easily aroused and you usually try to take the lead in
social matters and affairs of the heart. You go out and get what you
think you want. Trouble is, once gotten, you may get tired of having.
The thrill of the chase is more important to you than the final catch.
Thus your romances may start off in a blaze of excitement and glory
only to end in boredom and monotony. There are always fresh fields to
conquer and you go after them. It's almost a crusade for you. Venus
worst qualities are trying too hard to please others and taking the
line of least resistance. In relationships, then, you may choose
partners who tend to dominate you and want you to do things their way
at the expense of your own wishes. Venus in Aries calls for you to be
assertive, yet not dominating, pleasing, yet not a dishrag. You are
independent and have an impulsive approach to love. You like
competitiveness and perhaps pick fights just for the action and
excitement. You can be very inconsiderate of others because you
sometimes do not think about your actions and they effects they have
on those closest to you. Impatience and selfishness can be a problem
