The Taurus – Scorpio polarity is one of the most powerful in the wheel of the zodiac.
Taurus is the second signed of the zodiac — fixed, yin, Venus-ruled earth sign.
It wants, more than anything, to feel secure. It makes its world smaller as that’s an easier perimeter to guard. Fixed signs know how to dig their heals in and get things done — if they find the thing worthy.
Idealistically it may not always jibe, but for Taurus, if it keeps food on the table and the lights on, it may well jibe. One can ponder ones navel more comfortably with a full belly.
At the moment, Taurus’ ruler, Venus, is sextiling Saturn and opposing Uranus. Saturn is time and structure (and karma). Uranus is the zeitgeist, the group mind and revolution by way of revelation. We can see houses of cards crumbling. The way people have been relating, and manipulating (Scorpio stuff)is coming to light. People are emboldened and valuing themselves enough to speak up. This is an example of that Taurus Scorpio Polarity. Personal experience when shared by many makes a groundswell.
With the Full Moon, Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries instinctually revealing greater truths about the structure of things. Trines are points of ease, so truths unfurl instead of raining down like hailstones.
This revelation is not just appending on the world stage. We will see how truths we’ve been unready or unable to see in our own lives may be revealed. That is the journey, after all.
In Scorpio time, if we are willing to metaphorically and in reality see what is at the corner of our eyes and ears and hearts, it is easier to experience.
Its aim is to learn self sufficiency, so it sometimes bars the windows against all and sundry, keeping out the hurt, the help and everything in between.
It wants to feel it’s own vibration, separate from everyone else’s, so that it can know itself and it can then befriend itself and it can then value itself.
Huge amounts of input don’t always aid this process. Isolation helps to a point.
Taken to the extreme, Taurus does it the hard way, determinedly digging a hole with its fingernails when at its elbow, there is a spoon, a spade, a shovel.
The Venus-ruled bull is learning, in its vacuum, to have the primary relationship, the one with itself.
We have at play, however, the polarity.
In this case, that polarity is Pluto-ruled, fixed, receptive, watery Scorpio. Scorpio shares resources, it loves the challenge of the transformative adventure. It loves to probe the secrets of the universe, the soul and the contents of your lunchbox.
Scorpio knows how to share resources, team up and dive into the fiery pit of transformation.
Taurus May rest on the laurels of material security. Scorpio’s broader scope (one of its symbols is the far seeing eagle) reminds us that the true security is in the realm of spirit, as all else passes away.
We face, in this polarity our own limitations and insecurities. In Scorpio, we want to experience oneness with Source. We are also scared of that experience and the effect it will have on our ego — our self vs. Self.
So we scamper back and forth on the power line between Taurus and Scorpio:
Learning to value ourselves and be self sufficient under Taurus;
Learning to transform and adventure and unravel the secrets of ourselves under Scorpio. We are self reliant, we are leaning on others, we are interdependent.
We have glimpses of Source at home, alone, on the meditation chair, while doing the dishes.
We have waves of Source while praying, dancing, conversing with others.
We grow, we change, we incur and transmute karma.
We go inward, we adventure outward so that we can transform inward.
The Taurus/Scorpio experience is stubborn, it is powerful, it commits. And it may, at times, feel insecure and retreat.
And when it regroups and reactivates, it has the ability to move internal mountains.
So love Thyself. Rest and retreat when necessary.
Join with others when you can. Listen to your own voice within and become best friends with it. There is no better teacher because it knows your curriculum.
Much love, Lydia
