This reading is for the month of October 2018 for Taurus sun, moon and rising.
Yes, You ARE a Creator
This past full moon in Aries conjunct Chiron on Sept. 24th hit everyone, Taurus. For you, I do not necessarily feel like the full moon was majorly emotional or traumatic (it was for a lot of zodiac signs), but it did bring something to light. I feel it was a positive realization about who you really are and what you are capable of, mixed with a bit of fear over how to make it happen in your life. The reading I pulled up for you, Taurus, is showing me a polarized situation that you’re in–but I see a way out.
The Hexagram (Double Triangle) Spread
The Hexagram Spread forms a circle of two triangles. The first triangle represents the outer ways of being. The second triangle shows what’s really behind this situation.
- The Apparent Situation: Seven of Wands in reverse
- The Point of Tension: Prince of Pentacles in reverse
- The Key to Resolution: Five of Swords
- The Subconscious Situation: Eight of Wands
- The Pivot of Change: The High Priest
- The Key to Harmony: King of Cups
Theme: Dreamtime/Creation in reverse
I am starting this reading with the theme that I pulled, because I feel that it is particularly dominant for you, rather than a subtle influence. The card is Dreamtime/Creation and it came up in reverse.
I feel that you are trying to find a way to slot your creativity into an unalterable structure, Taurus, and this has been challenging for you. Inside you have big dreams but you are struggling to bring them to the surface.
Your dreams are ready to become a reality, but their manifestation is up to you.
Look at the figure on the card and you’ll see a man standing in what almost looks like a yogic position as he calls into being all of creation with his magical horn. His creativity flows effortlessly. The dreams of the ancestors, and all that could be, flow into the crown of his head, connecting seamlessly with what he draws forth, as if everything he does is in perfect alignment with the will of the universe.
And yet in reverse, the flow of creativity is blocked, the circle broken. I feel a sense of being stifled, as if the current environment is strict and unalterable. But deep down, you know you are capable of so much more.
The contrast between the first card of each triangle shows an interesting parallel. The outward triangle begins with the Seven of Wands in reverse, showing a figure overcome by obstacles and opposition. The beginning of the inward triangle, however, shows that subconsciously you have already seen the potential for your success. You know you can do this, even if you can’t express it openly at this present moment.
It’s time for you to be bold and stand up for what you want.
I feel you are being called to be bold, dear Taurus, something that probably doesn’t get you too excited unless you have some fire or air somewhere in your chart. Taurus likes everything to be chill and low-key, but I think you’re going to have to stand up for what you want this time.
The Prince of Pentacles in reverse shows up in the position of the point of tension–this is where I see you struggling to make things move forward. Behind this struggle is some real fear, and that fear may be justified, because the next card shows that the resolution is in the Five of Swords.
I’m sorry, because the Five is a really unpleasant energy, a sense of defeat and loss. But here is the thing, dear Taurus: The center of your reading is Dreams and Creation. Inside, you are that Eight of Wands success energy. If there is someone in your environment who is trying to squash your dreams, honestly…just screw ’em. The universe is telling you that you 100% need to go for this.
In the pivot of change, we have the High Priest, and what immediately comes to me is that you can work the system to your advantage, even if right now it feels like the system is what is keeping you stuck. As an earth sign, you are quite a stolid figure yourself and like systems for their stability. Use this quality because people know this about you and it’s one of your virtues!
A prominent authority figure may be able to help you.
I also see that a prominent figure of authority may be able to help you. You have somebody’s ear here so take advantage of that as well (in an appropriate way, obviously). You are more admired than you realize, dear Taurus. I feel there are a few people around you who are making petty obstacles for you. But really, they are just in their own drama and you are being dragged into it. It’s not really about you so pull yourself back out of it, and focus your energy on connecting with this other person who can help you.
The final card in the reading is the King of Cups, pointing the way to harmony. Kings are the masters of their suit, so the King of Cups has mastered his creativity. He is the patron of artists, musicians, dancers and visionaries, and he is urging you to apply discipline to your dreams so that you can make them a reality.
The King of Cups with the High Priest makes me feel like you could make this dream your full-time vocation if you so choose. It will require some maneuvering and finessing on your part, Taurus, but you can do it.
