Aries Month is over. Aries is the child of the Sun. After Arians discover the world and make their own unique footage, their experiences grow. Arians don’t be naive anymore. The fire is lightly cool down. Arians see the hard truth of the world. Arians now change into Taureans.
The Earth Element
In Astrology and Horoscope, the 12 Zodiac Signs are divided into Four group elements. They are:
- The Fire Element. In the Fire Element, we have three Zodiac Signs: Aries (we have been told about Arians and the “Half-Aries”), Leo and Sagittarius (we will learn about them when their months come)
- The Earth Element. Mother Nature has three children: Taurus (we will learn more in this month since the Sun is in Taurus at the moment), Virgo and Capricorn.
- The Air Element. We have Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Yup, Aquarius is the name for water, but Aquarians is the Air Element.
- The Water Element: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
- Those elements are the essential elements in the Earth.
As you can see in the image, it is classified by the ancient Astrologers. Back then, ancient Astrologers is based on the temperature and the quality of being. Until modern Astrology, this knowledge is still correct.
When we are in the Aries World last month, Gne forgets about the Fire Element. Now, let’s Gne share short information about the Fire.
Fire stands for dynamism, energy, and power. Fire is the initiator of actions and a force for change. It transforms matter into energy, a process which can result in the radiation of pleasant warmth or destructive heat. On a spiritual level, fire symbolizes the divine spark or spiritual purification. This idea finds expression in the image of the fires of purgatory as a place of transformation.
And Aries Zodiac Sign is the first child of the Fire Element. As a result of that, Arians are short-temper people. They also are hot-temper. Even so, when you get around with Arians, they easily to inspire you to do the actions, no matter what. Arian’s motto is action. (like “action” in the making film process from the director. As soon as you hear it, you know what to act, right?).
Don’t misunderstand that Arians do the action without thinking. Actually, the Fire Element gives the gift of quick thinking to Arians, so almost actions are the final decision of thinking 🙂 Just the thinking time for Aries is shorter than other Zodiac Signs.
In contrast with the Fire Element, Mother Nature first child is Taurus. “Earth forms the material basis for all human life, including physical well-being “. Gne doesn’t talk much since all the products we have right now derived from Mother Nature. We have been changed Mother Nature and make productivity for us.
Besides of Four Elements, we have one more element. However, it is not very popular and hasn’t deep research yet: the ‘Quinta essentia’.
” This very simply describes the soul or the spiritual being of a person. It stands apart from the other four elements and is not depicted in the horoscope. ”
In short word, you can understand “the Quinta Essentia” as a Free Will. (Gne has one bad experience with individual Free Will action -.- Following the Free Will, that person hits my car without context!!! here is the post how danger is the Free Will @.@)
Taurus – the first child of Mother Nature
Taurus (Greek for Ταύρος (Tavros)) has the animal symbol is the Bull or an Ox in Asian countries.
First thing about Taurus is the date. Taureans are born from 21st April to the 20th May. It making people who are born under this range has the Sun Sign in Taurus.
According to Cosmology and Astronomy, Taurus has the constellation star as below
As result of that, we have the symbol for Taurus is:
For the mythology behind the constellation star, Gne refers to
The bull is one of the most popular mythical symbols of antiquity, and there are therefore numerous tales associated with it.
When Zeus desired the beautiful Phoenician princess, he transformed himself into a magnificent white bull. After enticing her to sit on his back he rose and fled with her to Crete where he revealed his true identity and took her as his lover. Minos, who was one of their sons, became the king of Crete.
During a dispute with his brothers, he called on Poseidon to help him and the latter agreed in return for a fitting sacrifice.
For this purpose, Poseidon had a pristine white bull rise from the waters but Minos was so taken with the bull that he was unwilling to sacrifice it. Poseidon took revenge for this broken oath by causing Minos’ wife Pasiphae, who was the daughter of the sun god Helios, to fall in love with the bull.
Pasiphae had the Athenian artificer Daedalus construct a hollow wooden cow in which she could hide in order to copulate with the bull.
She then gave birth to the Minotaur, a monstrous creature with the upper body of a bull and the lower one of a human. The Minotaur demanded human sacrifices and so was kept in a labyrinth built by Daedalus to protect the inhabitants of Crete. Eventually, Theseus managed to kill the Minotaur with the help of Minos’ daughter Ariadne.
A further myth associated with the constellation of Taurus concerns Io, the daughter of Inachus. Zeus also took her as a lover and transformed her into a cow to protect her from the fury of his wife Hera.
Thus, the myth of the monster Minotaur also derives from this Taurus constellation. The after-story of Minotaur can be summary as
A son of Minos, Androgeos, was later killed by the Athenians; to avenge his death, Minos demanded that seven Athenian youths and seven maidens should be sent every ninth year (or, according to another version, every year) to be devoured by the Minotaur. When the third time of sacrifice came, the Athenian hero Theseus volunteered to go, and, with the help of Ariadne, daughter of Minos and Pasiphae, he killed the monster and ended the tribute. Theseus escaped with Ariadne
Traits/ Personalities inherited from Earth Mother
- Since Taureans are her first child, you should remember they are “oxen” -.-
A little explanation: Taureans mind is solid as rock-> they are SUPER SLOOOWWW to change their mind.
- They also cherish the traditional values.
- Taureans people are “down-to-Earth”-> When Arians discovers the world, they meet the hard truth. The world emphasizes the MONEY -.- Thus, all Taureans are materialism.
Gne confirms it’s very true because my mom is a Taureans.
*Sigh* It touches Gne sore area. Even Gne understands and knows my mom Sun Sign is Taurus (her birthday is April 29th. It’s upcoming next week. Gne is still thinking about the gift for her as a mother’s day plus her own birthday), Gne is still “uncomfortable” when Gne has a conversation with my mom (no matter what topics).
You should remember by heart about this fact about Taureans. They all “like” money. If Taureans doesn’t like to make money, then they would love to count money -.- (even the money belongs to someone else)
You don’t need to find the reason behind that fact. It doesn’t matter to Taureans after all. Money is the main concern. -> thus, they have some stress from it as well….
- Taurus loves being in nature, getting close to the Mother. If we imagine Taureans in agriculture, they consider as the sound of Spring. They would relax, lying in the green grassland and do nothing.
And here are some uniques traits/ personalities of Taureans
- Their Motto: possession. They make very clear when it involves to the ownership.
- Taureans comprehensive this world by 6 senses: vision, taste, touch, hearing, smell and the six sense for Taureans Women. Not like Arians or the “Half-Aries” when they approach the world by the instinct.
- Therefore, Taureans usually is slow because they are busy to pausing-> and then comprehensive-> it makes them appear as a person who is slow to act.
- Besides, people usually notice Taureans are very patient with things they do. Well, because they are “busy to understand” -.-
- However, after Taurean makes the final decision, the result has a long-lasting effect and satisfy you because they have been thinking in a deep and thoughtful way.
- Some of them have great stamina.
- Some of them have talents in singing and in arts. (Gne doesn’t know about this one since Gne doesn’t meet any Taureans with such talents)
So far, that’s all about the common traits all both gender Taureans. Next post, we will get know Taureans women (both young and old *wink*).
