THE EARTH AND TAURUS

REBIRTH OF FEMININE ARCHETYPES

Guru Rattana, Ph.D.   http://www.yogatech.com/nmb/

April 24, 2011

NEW AND FULL MOONS

APRIL 20 - The SUN moved into TAURUS where it stays through May 20.

MAY 2- 3 - TAURUS NEW MOON - 11:51 PM PDT (6:51 AM GMT)

MAY 17 - SCORPIO FULL MOON - 4:10 AM PDT (11:10 AM GMT)

At the Taurus New Moon, five planets are in Aries (Mercury, Venus,

Jupiter, Mars and Uranus,) emphasizing the continual need to focus on

ourselves and our path. At the Scorpio Full Moon, Venus, Mercury and

Mars will have moved into Taurus. The forces of redirection,

redefinition, and rebirth are requiring change. Our discussion below

highlights themes being awakened in our psyche at this time, which will

be major influences for many years to come.

DID ANYONE NOTICE?

Did anyone notice that astrological symbolism is dominated by masculine

archetypes? This reflects the patriarchal paradigm, which over time has

transformed many goddess archetypes into god/male figures. In this issue

we investigate the re-emergence of some of the goddess and feminine

archetypes.

To review, there are 12 zodiac signs, six in each polarity. The 3 air

signs and the 3 fire signs are classified as masculine. The 3 water and

the 3 earth signs are designated as feminine. However, the ruling

planets do not all correspond to the polarity of the signs. The Libra

air/mental sign is ruled by Venus, which along with the Moon is the only

planet considered feminine. The Moon rules Cancer - that fits. Libra and

Venus represent non-physical love achieved through the balance and

alchemy of the two universal polarities.

The ruling planets of the other 2 water signs Scorpio (Pluto) and Pisces

(Neptune) have been inappropriately transfigured into 'he' planets. The

same is the case for the Earth sign Capricorn and its ruling planet

Saturn. And Earth Goddess Virgo is ruled by Mercury - definitely a

misfit (although Virgos have very good minds.)In this issue we discuss

Taurus.

DEFINITION OF THE TWO UNIVERSAL POLARITIES

The 2 universal polarities are often designated as male and female,

which leads to confusion and misrepresentation of these basic energies.

Both exist in both men and women and must be integrated and expressed to

achieve wholeness, inner peace and Love.

To avoid all the misunderstandings that arise, I like to call the male

polarity the STABLE POLARITY. This energy is stable, absolute,

unchangeable, neutral, impenetrable and non-judgmental. The female

polarity is the FLOWING POLARITY. Its energy moves, changes, transmutes,

transforms, and is ever-evolving.

WHO RULES WHAT?

Before the discovery of Uranus in 1781, Neptune in 1848 and Pluto in

1930, except for the Sun and the Moon, each planet ruled two zodiacal signs.

* Sun -- Leo

* Moon -- Cancer

* Mercury -- Gemini and Virgo

* Venus -- Taurus and Libra

* Mars -- Aries and Scorpio

* Jupiter -- Sagittarius and Pisces

* Saturn -- Capricorn and Aquarius.

After their discovery, Uranus was assigned to Aquarius, Neptune to

Pisces and Pluto to Scorpio. This leaves Venus and Mercury with dual

rulership. Mercury and Gemini are an obvious fit. idealized Venus (more

later) works for Libra. What about the Earth signs Virgo and Taurus?

We need another planet. What about the most obvious entity in our

planetary system - Mother Earth!. When I first wrote on this topic in

2001, I proposed that Earth be assigned to Taurus. Ten years later there

is no longer any question in my mind - Taurus is ruled by Planet Earth!

Everything about Taurus represents the Earth. Taurus personifies the

productivity, wealth, fruitfulness and sensuality of the fertility

goddess.Who else could the fertility goddess be but our own lush planet

Earth?Where else does life grow and flourish like on planet

Earth?Certainly not on Venus.

I have tested my hypothesis on my Taurus friends. Their responses range

from a relieved and an exited "YES!" to a smug "of course."Every Taurean

so far has been in agreement. I originally speculated that Taureans were

so aligned with beauty that they might feel deprived if they thought

Venus was no longer their primary goddess. But Taureans are so innately

connected to the Earth and nature that to take away Venus is to deprive

them of nothing. Recognition of the Earth goddess supports Taureans in

being who they are and affirms the legitimacy and the importance of

their role in promoting sensitivity, sensuality and beauty in our human

lives.

Venus and Earth are both Goddess of Love archetypes. However, each

represents a very different aspect of Love. Venus represents idealized,

non-physical Love. Earth represents the physical manifestation of

universal Love. As the first Earth sign and second sign of the zodiac,

Taurus makes it very clear that our soul comes to Planet Earth to

experience Love. Our Earth journey is about figuring out how to do so.

A PROPER PLACE FOR PLANET EARTH

I concur with Alice Bailey who wrote in Esoteric Astrology that modern

astrology gives very little importance to planet Earth even though "the

energy which emanates from or radiates from Earth itself" is of

paramount importance. She writes, "Astrologers have always emphasized

the incoming influences and energies as they beat upon and play through

our little planet, but they have omitted to take into adequate

consideration the emanating qualities and forces which are the

contribution of our Earth...to the larger whole." (*1) This can be

rectified by assigning Earth to Taurus.

There are many explanations why Earth has not been given its proper role

in astrology. Our patriarchal, male/mind-dominated, externally-oriented

culture plays a pivotal role in this oversight. The dominator/dominated,

victor/victim, exploiter/exploited operating manual of the world's power

structure controls our psyche. The domination, egotistical "the Earth is

here for us to exploit" attitude does not lend itself to treating Gaia

Earth as a living entity with value that merits deep respect,

appreciation and care.

If we view ourselves as separate from the Earth, and at the mercy of

planetary energies, wenaturally feel disempowered and victimized. If we

recognize and experience our interconnectedness, we value and explore a

relationship that promotes a reciprocal and beneficial partnership. Our

Earth journey is about cultivating this deep, spiritual, in-the-body

experience. Mother Earth is our teacher.

POSITION OF EARTH IN OUR NATAL CHART

The first thing we need to know is the position of planet Earth in our

natal chart, which is always 180o from our Sun, or exactly opposite our

Sun. Thus if your Sun is 2o Aries, your Earth is 2o Libra. The Earth and

the Sun are polarity pairs.

Aries -- Libra

Taurus -- Scorpio

Gemini -- Sagittarius

Cancer -- Capricorn

Leo -- Aquarius

Virgo -- Pisces

Planet Earth is always in the house opposite our Sun, i.e. if your Sun

is in the first house, your Earth is in the seventh, etc. Traditional

astrology would thus say that the Sun and the Earth oppose each other.

This polarity relationship is, however, complementary. The integration

of the two interdependent archetypes is the foundation for the inner

alchemy of love.

THE PLACEMENT OF EARTH IN OUR NATAL CHART INDICATES

*where and how we will be challenged in our earthly pursuits

*where we must learn to express and anchor our authentic soul self into

our daily life

*where we must grow and develop as a human being so that our soul

presence works for us and attracts opportunities.

The placement and sign of our Earth indicate how we experience that 'our

inner reality creates our outer reality.' Our Earth path exposes the

battle between our subconscious programming and our soul and indicates

where we must work to achieve a synthesis of our complex natures into an

integrated whole, heart-centered being.

EARTH, SATURN AND PLUTO - FEMININE ARCHETYPES

Our Sun sign represents the male/stable polarity of our soul -how our

soul shines and the nature of our basic creative energy. Our Earth sign

represents the female/flowing polarity of our soul - (1) how our Sun

energy can be properly used this lifetime and (2) where our personal

development and growth make it possible to manifest and experience Love

in physical reality.

Saturn, Pluto and Earth guide our Earth school experience. While Planet

Earth has been ignored and excluded from the planetary family, Saturn

and Pluto have been co-opted into masculine archetypes. However, if we

understand the male polarity as the stable, absolute, unchangeable

universal energy and the female polarity as the energy that moves,

changes, transmutes and transforms, there is no doubt that both the

Saturn and Pluto archetypes express the ever-evolving female polarity.

Saturn and Pluto (along with Mars) have traditionally been considered

'malefic.' This is understandable in a paradigm that excludes or

denigrates one of the universal polarities. In isolation, the expression

of both polarities gets distorted and destructive. The polarities need

each other to function optimally. First we will discuss Saturn and later

Pluto.

EARTH, SATURN AND OUR WORLDLY PATH

Saturn represents our karma - a necessary part of our path to dharma.

Saturn obliges us to work out our energetic obligations accrued through

the law of cause and effect, this lifetime and in previous incarnations.

Earth gives us an opportunity to rise above karma by doing our dharma.

Dharma can be understood as (1) our way of life or lifestyle that is in

accordance with universal and natural laws and aligned with our soul

blueprint, (2) what we have to accomplish this life time, and (3) how we

go about accomplishing it.

The importance of the sign and placement of Planet Earth in our natal

chart should not be underestimated.

* Our Earth sign represents the nature of our earthly path, which we

must follow to achieve self-mastery and soul consciousness.

* Our Earth sign indicates the types of experiences we will have and the

energy we must use to achieve our Earthly goals.

* The house placement of Earth is the arena of life where we will be

most challenged to deal with Saturn's rules of physical reality.

* The goal of our life experiences as defined by Earth is to facilitate

the experience of Love through our earthly endeavors.

* Our ability or inability to master our Earthly path determines our

success or failure in terms of our ability (1) to make our contribution,

(2) to follow our destiny path and (3) to connect with universal Love

while in a physical body.

DISCOVERING OUR EARTH PATH

Current astrology does not examine the role of Planet Earth in natal

charts. One unconscious reason for ignoring theimportant role of Planet

Earth is the uncomfortable fact that as embodied souls, we are exploring

unknown and challenging territory. We are here to learn lessons and to

grapple with physical reality in order to survive. We don't feel

comfortable with our Earthly path and the experimentation required to

master it. And we certainly don't like the pain component.

As you examine your Earth sign, check out the following for yourself.

* We feel both challenged and relieved when we begin to understand the

nature of our Earth path.

* We see the many ways that we have both fought and followed this path.

* We recognize that we have been on this path since we were a child.

* We can understand the logic and reasons for this aspect of our

physical journey. It incorporates growth that is part of our personal

empowerment and necessary for our wordly success.

* We experience a sense of relief when we stop resisting and start

enjoying this challenging part of our lives.

*We recognize the potential power in embracing this path, which rewards

us withboth personal growth and professional recognition.

* This "must do to survive' part of our lives transforms into a "get to

do" to live a more fulfilling life.

* We discover a missing piece in our puzzle that is so obvious it is

almost embarrassing.

As you explore your own Earth path, examine these issues --

(1) In what ways have you resisted this aspect of your life?

(2) In what ways have you embraced it?

(3) How have your life experiences forced you to grow in this area of

your life?

(4) How might your life be easier and more fulfilling if you were a

success in this area of your life?

(5) Is this a missing piece that could create a major breakthrough in

the achievement of your life goals?

(6) How could you change your attitude toward your Earth path?

(7) Note how a shift on any or all of the above creates more peace and

an inner experience of Love in your life.

THE PATRIARCHY AND HIGHER EXPRESSIONS

Human exploitation of the Earth and the depreciation of the status and

role of women, our emotions, feelings and the feminine are a natural

result of a paradigm that (1) indulges in mental activity and values

mental attributes and pursuits, above and at the expense of feelings and

sensitivity and (2) directs our spiritual quest outside ourselves

towards an external God and savior. The disturbing result is that we

have distanced ourselves from the gifts of the Earth, our body and our soul.

The highest expressions of masculine energy are * neutrality, *

non-judgment, * the right use of will and * soul-directed individuality.

Although humans give lip service to both free will and individuality,

very few commit to master these aspects of being, which can only be

achieved when we are able to access and operate from our neutral mind.

As a result of our conflicted consciousness, individual will has been

degraded to control and manipulation to get our own way and to

aggressively go after what we want. These immature versions of right use

of will and individual power are products of our dualistic mind.

We must cultivate the higher faculties of our mind and the male polarity

of our soul to be able to embrace and expresses the elevated qualities

of the female polarity of our soul. Without a stable, neutral inner

foundation, we are incapable of relaxing into the flowing energy of our

emotional and physical bodies. Without the sensitivity of our feeling,

flowing nature, we don't even notice the subtleties of our emotions and

our bodies, let alone the Earth.

RELATION OF EARTH TO THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE

What is the nature of the Earth in relationship to the rest of the

universe?Over five hundred years ago astronomers determined that Earth

and the other planets revolved around the Sun, instead of revolving

around the Earth. This fact inadvertently contributed to depreciating

the value of the Earth.

The Earth is, however, the center of astrological inquiries. The main

concern of astrology is to discover how the laws of the universe and the

archetypical energies of the other planets affect life on planet Earth

and how can we make practical use of these laws and energies. Astrology

asks how do the Sun, Moon and the planets influence life on

Earth.Although this question is of critical importance, the geocentric

point of view of astrology has contributed to ignoring the influence of

planet Earth itself. We are fish who have forgotten that we swim in

water and that our existence emanates from and is determined by the

water (Earth!) itself.

OUR EVOLVING RELATIONSHIP WITH PLANET EARTH

Humans, animals and plants are all dependent upon the soil of the Earth

for their sustenance and well being. Yet we pollute the air we breathe

and the water that we drink. We plunder natural resources, pave the

ground that connects us to the Earth's vibration and destroy natural

habitats to serve our selfish greed. Because we have severed our

energetic relationship with Mother Earth, we have no understanding of

how to relate to her, how to respect her and how to enjoy and be

nurtured by her gifts.

Our lack of direct relationship with Mother Earth has led us to view her

as unpredictable. We watch as she peacefully absorbs our abuse and then

we are distraught when she reacts with floods, earthquakes and other

natural disasters. We try to predict what she will do without attempting

to understand or accept our responsibility in the cause and effect

relationship between our Mother and her children.

Basically we have lost touch with the Earth, with our bodies and with

our emotions. We have severed our connection with the flow of the

feminine. The result is that we live in fear, feel insecure and perceive

lack. This mindset leads us to hoard and squander resources and to seek

to control and manipulate to meet our excessive and insatiable needs. We

are unable to experience true empathy, and we suffer from unrefined and

shut down sensitivity.

We are however at a major turning point. The re-introduction of feminine

archetypes into our individual and collective psyche can change our

human fate and curtain the abuses of the old paradigm. Reestablishing

our connection with the flow of life and the Earth through refined

sensitivity opens us up to new possibilities. We are can experience that

there are enough resources for all of us to get our basic needs met and

enough opportunities for everyone to share their gifts.

EARTH AND THE QUEST TO EXPERIENCE LOVE

The recognition of Earth as a planet in our zodiac and its pivotal role

in defining our human journey will facilitate our soul's quest to

experience Love. The perceived burden of being human and having a human

body can be reassessed. Taurus and Earth are here to embellish our

journey with riches, pleasures and gifts available no where else in the

universe.

Humans come to Planet Earth to experience Love in the human form. We

activate our body and awaken our consciousness so that we can enjoy this

ecstatic feeling. Our past failures to achieve this goal in no way

negate the Divine intention for humans to experience Love while on

Planet Earth. We are being aided in attaining this goal by the higher

vibrations of Love that are infusing the Planet. The Earth's vibration

is being upgraded to the frequency of the heart center, which provides

the energetic environment for us to open our hearts. The more our hearts

open, the more we will be able to honor the sacredness of our Mother

Earth, recognize Her as a planet of Love, and embrace Her and our own

physical embodiment of Love.

A friend of mine told me this story.He was meditating in the mountains

in Spain and the soul of his sister-in-law, who had died during the

Spanish civil war, came to him. He asked her, what she was doing.She

replied, "The Earth is the most beautiful place in the whole universe.

After we leave our bodies, we like to come back every chance that we get."

THE GIFT OF EARTH AND OUR HUMAN BODY

It is a gift to get a body and come for a visit to Mother Earth, where

we can actually feel physical pleasures, touch different textures, taste

so many foods and absorb the nurturing energy of the Earth and the Sun.

Planet Earth is a treasure house of goodies, from gemstones to flowers,

plants and trees, to thousands of species of wildlife, to a myriad of

landscapes and bodies of water.Taurus teaches us that Earth is a very

special place and that we should enjoy our short, sacred journey.

It is time to embrace the obvious and to give Gaia Earth the due She

deserves. As we truly recognize and honor our Mother and care for and

protected her, humans will receive gifts that were previously

unavailable. Turning our attention back to our own earthly source will

empower us in ways that have eluded us for millennia.

* We will be able to tap into the healing and nurturing energy of the

Earth and receive physical and emotional healing.

* We will escape from the exploitative mindset that has enslaved our

psyches and dominated our economic, political and religious systems.

* We will be able to enjoy being in our bodies and stop using them as

simply a means of transportation, a bothersome mechanism that needs to

be fed and a puppet that we get to ornament.

* We will be able to enjoy the profound satisfaction of personal

empowerment and sacred sexuality.

* We will stop looking outside ourselves for salvation and experience

our divinity in our bodies.

PLUTO AND SCORPIO

Sounds good - experiencing Love in a human body on Planet Earth. But our

Earth path is not a heady spiritual ideal. Attaining and integrating

higher expressions of the feminine into our psyche is the most

challenging part of our spiritual path. Enter Scorpio, the polarity of

Taurus and Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio. Pluto and Scorpio are feminine

archetypes that express the deep flowing powers of Kali and the Kundalini.

Scorpio and Pluto represent what we don't see, the unknown, the

unconscious and the subconscious. They represent our quest to discover

and empower our core, our essence and the primal flow of life. They

represent the process that we must go through to access our purity so

that we can express our soul blueprint. They represent the purification

process required to tap into the flow and rhythm of our soul. Their path

is defined in terms of * growth, * development, * adjustment, * death

and rebirth, * evolution and * alchemy.

When our spiritual goals are defined exclusively by the esteemed

faculties of the upper chakras and the stable, male polarity paradigm,

the ever-changing, transforming, in-the-body requirements of the lower

chakras and flowing female polarity can be * experienced as upsetting

and disturbing, ?rejected as superfluous and * interpreted negatively.

The role of the Scorpio and Pluto archetypes is not to derail our

spiritual goals, but to make it possible for us to attain them! If our

distorted subconscious programming and self-effacing belief system run

our lives, we won't be able to find inner peace or Love. They expose our

dysfunctions and oblige us to correct them. Their goal is to upgrade the

expression of our emotional, flowing energy so that it nurtures and

sustains us, instead of sabotaging our intentions and destroying our

hard work.

PLUTO AND SCORPIO UNCOVER THE MYSTERIES AND GIFTS OF LIFE

The challenge of Earth and Taurus is to break down and unblock forms and

structures that do not transmit Light and Love. Scorpio and Pluto help

by revealing the inner truth of the spiritual reality hidden within all

life and material forms.

The Pluto and Scorpio archetypes uncover the mysteries of life. These

feminine energies penetrate deep into the places where the truth hides

until we are able to bring it into the light of consciousness. The truth

includes both our wounded conditioning and the Light and Love of our Soul.

As Pluto and Scorpio reconnect us to our Earthly source and to Her

generous gifts -

* Many of the mysteries of life will no longer appear so mysterious.

Many of the answers we seek will be forthcoming as we develop a

relationship with the Earth Mother.

* The healing we need will be forthcoming as we learn to respect Gaia

Earth as an living entity.

* The depression and insecurity we feel will be alleviated as we

reconnect with Earth as our sacred home.

* The deprivation we experience can be turned into abundance when we

respect and wisely use the Earth's resources.

* Our inability to meet our basic emotional and material needs can be

replaced with prosperity, wealth and blessings, when we accept with love

and gratitude the generous gifts of our Mother Earth.

* Our soul becomes a sensory presence as we invite it into our body

through proper nourishment, alignment, activation and care.

* Our Kundalini awakens as we anchor our existence to the primal power

of the Earth Mother.

As we return to the arms of our Mother, we experience a peaceful sense

of well-being. We receive pleasure from every breath. Our stress and

depression give way to vitality and enthusiasm.Our bodies give us

pleasure instead of pain. Our emotions feed our soul. Our sensitivities

are enhanced. We realize that we are living in an exquisite garden.

TAURUS AND EARTH QUALITIES

Taurus and Earth are associated with the second house of the natal

chart. Taurus inaugurates spring. It is a time of new life, great

activity, awakenings, births and creations. Taurus is cautious,

practical and supportive of our human ambitions, need for material

security and desire for physical pleasure.

Associating Earth with Taurus validates the earthly qualities of Taurus.

These include (1) her need to create and sustain a self-contained

environment where she can get her needs met, monitor events and energies

that impact her life and process at her own slow methodical pace, and

(2) her desire for predictability and certainty so she can have the time

and space to be productive and creative.

The qualities embodied by Taurus reflect the qualities embodied by

Earth. Taurus moves at a slow, comfortable pace. Taurus is motivated by

her need for physical pleasure and economic well being. She is

interested in the acquisition and protection of material assets and the

accumulation of land and wealth. She likes to be productive and develops

the personal skills and talents, which she can use to attain emotional

and financial security. Taurus has a natural affinity with nature and

desires to live in a natural environments. She loves to give and receive

love.

The regenerative Earth goddess played a leading role in the

civilizations dependent upon agricultural cycles for their subsistence.

It is Taurus's relationship with the Earth that allows her to be

self-sufficient, resourceful, productive, practical and the bestower of

wealth.Arts dependent upon the Earth and her resources are associated

with Taurus -- gemology, architecture, music, sculpture, pottery and

painting. The celebration of life through dancing, music, singing,

acting and lovemaking is also associated with Taurus. Taurus loves all

the refinements of life.

THE VICTORIOUS FEMININE: PEACEFUL AND FIERY

Taurus and the Earth are associated with the proud, victorious aspects

of the feminine principle and personal power. Both express prosperity,

personal strength, fertility, productivity, autonomy and the capacity

for self-love. Through her magnetism Taurus attracts love and wealth to

herself and unabashedly enjoys it.She is self-sufficient and

independent. She can support herself and meet her own emotional needs.

Her capacity for self-acceptance opens her to the delightful possibility

of enjoying the pleasures of life without being attached to the form or

person delivering the goods.

Taurus also embodies the fierce and even belligerent qualities of the

Earth and the early fertility goddesses, who are very patient until

pushed beyond their limits. When provoked beyond reason, the Bull will

attack. When abused to excess, the Earth will erupt. Her stubborn and

persevering qualities make Taurus a financial success and the Earth the

endless cornucopia of visual and editable delights. The Bull's trump

card is that she is at one with her Earth Mother, who surrounds her

child with the bounty of life. The grateful Bull knows she is here on a

very short visit and she makes the best of this opportunity to be held

in the arms of Her Mother..

FEAR AND EMPOWERMENT

Although the Bull is a symbol of male potency and a source of

empowerment of the fertility goddesses, the Bull is a representation of

the power of the self-sufficient goddess.For she embodies a perfect

blend of masculine and feminine power. Taurus gets her sense of autonomy

from her ability to embody both masculine and feminine qualities.

Taurus embodies beauty, which has a different flavor than the delicate,

serene perfection of Libra. Taurean beauty is earthy, indulgent and

luxurious. The love, beauty and sensuality of the classical Venus, who

is the embodiment of soft (and submissive) feminine attributes has been

denuded of masculine powers. It is not necessarily bad to have one

planet represent the more refined feminine qualities. The problem is

that over time male-dominated cultures have stripped the feminine

archetype of her strength and independence and have made her into an

object of pleasure and exploitation.

Classical Venus is a safe archetype to use by those who wish to

manipulate and dominate women. Earth is NOT a safe archetype to play

this game with.The Earth is too real. The Earth is ever-present in our

bodies, our emotions and our psyche. The Earth is capable of vengeance

if she is not loved and respected. The Earth can fight back and does.

Fear of feminine power partly explains why Gaia Earth has not been

recognized as one of the primary zodiac signs and the ruler of Taurus.

Denial of Earth as a vital and pivotal player in the astrological world

fits into the patriarchal paradigm that has been unable and unwilling to

recognize the role and power of women and avoids the existence of

emotions and feelings in both men and women.

Denial is a powerful force, but it loses hands down to reality. Mother

Earth is the source of all life. Both men and women have emotions and

bodies. Women are over half the human population. Women give birth to

both sons and daughters. Women are the source of creation on planet

Earth. The power of women, the Earth and the feminine are being re-born.

OUR EARTH AND TAURUS TEACHERS

Earth and Taurus teach us teach through direct life experience about

values, needs, necessity and self-sufficiency - wemust take care of our

bodies and honor our physical and emotional needs. Mother Earth

demonstrates that there are plenty of resources to do so. She teaches us

how to identify our comfort zones so that we can relax, feel comfortable

and secure and enjoy our humanness.

Earth and Taurus teach us that our body is an instrument of our soul and

an exquisitely designedtool for achieving soul consciousness. Earth and

Taurus activate the emotional and physical component of our sensory

system by making us aware of the sensual, sexual and emotional pleasures

that can be experienced in our human body. They teach us how to unleash

our power by tapping into our primal energies and by connecting with the

natural forces of Gaia Earth.

Earth teaches us that we can find inner peace if we (1) interpret all

our experiences in relationship to our quest for Love, (2) treat

everything as sacred and (3) interact with everyone as Her children.

Earth teaches us that our most primal relationships are with our body,

our emotions and with Gaia Earth herself. As we develop these

relationships, which are instinctual, sensual and non-verbal, we

discover the endless gifts that Mother Earth and our body bestow upon us.

MEDITATE ON MAAAAAA

To connect with the Mother, place your hands on your heart and chant

long MAAAAAAs.

The sound of MA is very soothing. Allow yourself to be nurtured by the

sound.
