The Sun enters tropical Taurus at 6:03 pm Friday to say now is the time. In general, solar Taurus is the time when the season initiated by solar Aries becomes plainly evident. Specific to this year, the Sun’s ingress to Taurus will be a time for all good people to feel and restore anew the simple truth of our connection to the Earth, and each other.
For thousands of years, human existence was an agrarian existence, which required a sense of connection with our planet to be sustainable. The many generations who derived their sustenance directly from the Earth were obliged to understand and participate in its cycles. From such practices, reinforced by the experience of each generation, came the simple values that shaped every human culture, the consciousness symbolized by solar Taurus.
Then, many things changed rapidly; but one thing did not change at all.
Humanity’s relationship with our planet changed rapidly with recent centuries, and with it our relationship to each other and our physical selves. A sense of separation displaced obligatory participation. Things got out of balance. Now, the consequences are widespread, as plainly evident as the season. It seems that nothing and nobody is well anymore, that ill will and ill health are the rule, but all is not lost.
One thing that never changed is your need to eat. That simple fact cannot be abstracted. That fundamental requirement keeps you connected to the Earth, its cycles, and other beings. Now is the time to honor that reality, one step at a time.
The first step is onto a patch of bare ground with your bare feet. At this time of year, in nearly every place where people reside, the surface of Earth is exposed and warm enough to stand on, at least briefly, without shoes.
Please try it as soon as you possibly can, if you possibly can. Take your shoes and socks off and put your feet on the ground, focusing on where they touch the soil. When you take that simple step, consider this — what you are feeling with and what you are feeling are one and the same thing. That is the reality. Separation is the illusion.
Every cell in your body is made from what you have ingested. Everything you have ingested comes from the Earth, and ultimately, goes back, so that somebody or something else can take their turn with it as part of their physical being. Your very body, feet and all, is only your turn in the cycle, nothing more and nothing less. You are the ground you stand on, and so is everybody and everything else.
If you can grasp that one simple truth in the body, you will have grasped in the mind what it means for the Sun to enter Taurus. For the sake of life itself, please keep it that simple if only for as long as your bare feet remain on the ground. Now is the time, and yours is the moment.
