Taurus in Friendship Love and Permanent Relationships

A Taurus friend is a friend for life. If you arrange to meet a Taurean, he or she will be on time, utterly reliable, and will always ensure they send a message if delayed in any way whatsoever. They are constant and faithful, and, as the Taurean becomes more successful, your joint outings will become more glamorous - but also rather more expensive, because Taurus always knows the best bars and restaurants in town. Although pretty shrewd about money, Taureans are not mean and are usually willing...

The History Of Astrology

Birth of Christ was not so much the result of the antagonism of the Christian Church as because of the decline of classical learning. New books from Greece concerned themselves more with astronomy than astrology (the two terms gradually acquired very different meanings), while some were simply not translated into Latin and therefore had no effect in Western Europe. Those astrological books which were translated often lacked sections describing how to set up a horoscope. The Astronomica of...

Scorpio and careers

Whether they aim to become high-powered financiers or plumbers (their choice of possible careers is very wide), emotional involvement is extremely important for Scorpios. If, for some reason, they find themselves stuck in a dull and uninvolving job, it will be especially important for them to have an extremely stimulating leisure interest. As opposed to this, some Scorpios are highly motivated to make money and, therefore, devote all their energy towards this end. Such people find fulfilment in...

Influence on weight gain and lethargy. Regular exercise is of above average importance. Young people with Taurus rising who are bulky and strong thrive on heavy team games where strength is an asset. Weight-lifting and boxing often appeal, while some will find that steady walking or working-out on machines at their own pace in a pleasant health club will be more acceptable. The Taurus Bull is shown with a rider in this Turkish illuminatec manuscript of 1550.

The Modern Planets

The planets beyond Saturn were not known in ancient times. Uranus was discovered in the 18th century, Neptune in the 19th, and Pluto in the 20th. The discovery of Uranus and Neptune confused astrologers at first, but eventually it was shown that the modern planets are part of the system. On 13 March 1781, the astronomer William Hershel unexpectedly spotted a new planet Uranus which is barely visible without a telescope. In September 1846 the discovery of Neptune was announced by astronomers who...

The Elements

The elements are fire, earth, air, and water, each operating through a different quality (or quadruplicity) three times to make up the 12 divisions of the zodiac. So each element has three signs attached to it one cardinal (the realm of instigators), one fixed (indicating steadiness and determination) and one mutable (which implies an adaptable and flexible attitude). Of the elements, fire is said to be hot and dry, earth cold and dry, air hot and humid, and water cold and humid. hot and moist,...

Ascendant tables

To discover your Ascendant you have to first find out the latitude of your place of birth. Look at the tables below and refer to the one closest to the location of your birth. Find your date and time of birth in the appropriate columns. Draw a line between these two points. The glyph to the right on this diagonal line reveals your Ascendant. Take particular notice whether it crosses near the top (the beginning of the sign), the middle area, or towards the bottom of the line (the end of the...

Sporty or Intellectual

The fact that there are two distinct types of Sagittarians is nowhere more evident than in their ties of friendship. Again, here are the sporty and the intellectual types. If we prefer the outdoor life, and like to hike, bike, or go camping outdoors, then our sporty Sagittarian friends will be favoured. Perhaps one of the greatest challenges we can enjoy with them is to keep fit. Therefore, sessions at the gym will have quite an edge as we try to do our best in going faster and longer on the...

Virgo as moon sign

Perhaps, rather more than with most signs, we find striking similarities between the influence of the Moon, Sun, and Ascendant in Virgo. As ever, the Virgo's response to situations will be coloured by the Moon-sign influence, and it is here that the three governing influences tend to come together. They possess enormous resources of nervous energy, which, if channelled positively, can enhance the individual's generous supply of practical ability. Because of the speed of their reactions and...

The Reagans And Astrology

As the Governor of California, Ronald Reagan signed a legislation legalizing the practice of astrology in the state. When he became the president in 1981, the astrologer Joan Quigley advised him (through his wife Nancy) on the timing of presidential travel and on his personal health. Furthermore, on Joan's advice, the successful US-Soviet treaty eliminating intermediate-range nuclear missiles was signed at precisely 1 30 pm on 8 December, 1987. Reagan himself wrote to the Los Angeles Times'...

Jupiter through the zodiac

Jupiter's natural optimism and fiery enthusiasm sits comfortably and positively when the planet is in this sign. It adds an independent and freedom-loving quality to the nature. Here too is adventurousness, and a J pioneering spirit which will also encourage sportsmanship and the Aries need to win, to be first, to be way out in front of one's rivals. There will be a quality of quick decisiveness which can sometimes lead to premature action. There is increased accident-proneness and a tendency...

Symbols which show the rising and setting of stars. This seems to suggest that the Pharaoh was interested in ascending degrees - the degree of the ecliptic rising over the eastern horizon at any particular time - an important matter in astrology. The tomb of Rameses V (1150-1145bce) contained similar evidence of scholarship of the planets papyri offering astrological hints for every hour of every month of the year were found there. The sole major contribution to the early history of astrology...

Taurus in permanent relationships

Most Taureans have a conventional side, which will be prominent when they are in the course of forming a permanent relationship. It is very likely that, from the start, wedding bells will be gently sounding in the back of their The Taurean Bull is seen in the upper-left of a manuscript from Lower Saxony, painted in the late 13th century.

The Planets through the Houses

Both positive and negative qualities will be present, and the aspects the Sun receives will also be important. Back problems are likely. MOON Here...

Interpreting a Horary Chart

It is impossible in a book of this nature to do more than skim the surface of the technique of interpreting horary charts. It is an area of astrology in which a great deal of practise, experience, and expertise is necessary. Relatively few middle-of-the-road astrologers acquire this some, like Deborah Houlding in England and Lee Lehman in the US, have concentrated on the subject, and practise and teach it. Here, we can merely show how to begin to interpret a horary chart by giving an example....

Venus Rules Taurus

Irrespective of the five possible Sun signs, a powerful show of Taurean characteristics will be present in the individual, who will be affectionate, sexy, and passionate. Taurean possessiveness will occur to a lesser degree, unless Taurus is the Sun sign, when it will be strengthened. If this is the case, food will also be central - teasing them about their love of eating is worthwhile, especially if they are good looking. This sign is known for its looks, but weight gain often has a disastrous...

Taureans Are Stubborn

Once the Taurean mind is made up - that is it. This is a fixed sign, and a basic interpretation is that Taureans are people who are fixed in their opinions. Added to this, the sign has a reputation for considerable stubbornness. The influence of the earth element gives Taureans their practical ability and common sense outlook - they are in many ways very down to earth. Interestingly, too, many are dedicated and very talented gardeners. All this is excellent, of course, but it is all too easy...

Twelve Signs Of The Zodiac

The zodiac's signs - Aries, Taurus, Gemini, and so on -derive from 12 of the many constellations. These 12 are unevenly spaced but give their names to 30 sections along the ecliptic the imaginary path around the Earth through which the Sun appears to move. In the course of a year, the Sun passes in front of each of these sections in turn. r _ he origin of the association I between the 12 constellations and animals and human heroes is obscure. However, we do know that the stars themselves were...

Wandering Stars and Fixed Stars

Astrologers are often extremely irritated when they see newspaper columns headed Your Life in the Stars, or Your Star Sign. Modern natal astrology is so strongly associated with the planets of the solar system that any allusion to the stars has sadly become associated with careless journalism, if not charlatanism. But the stars - the so-called fixed stars, as distinct from the planets, or wandering stars as they were called because of their clear first to begin tc classify the effects of the...

Taurus in Education Jobs and Money

Introducing Taurean children to nursery school may not be a very easy process. it will be most advisable for parents to take the child to visit the school together on a few occasions in order to get the young Taurean thoroughly used to the atmosphere. Any sudden change of location and environment will cause feelings of insecurity, and will probably lead to tantrums and a build up of stress for all concerned. Taking familiar toys to school will help, but the process in most cases is likely to be...

Midheaven signs for pisces

The influence of the Midheaven stems from the part of the zodiac that was immediately overhead at our birth - that is, the sign that was at the top of the celestial sphere (ffor more detail, see PP304-6).

The Midheaven signs for Pisces birth charts set out below are the only possible combinations of Ascendant and Midheaven signs in both the Northern and Southern...

Horary astrology

Horary astrology sets out to address a specific question, the answer to which is arrived at by setting up an astrological chart for the moment when the question is asked. The chart is then interpreted in respect of the question, which is broken down into its significant elements. Horary astrology has been practised for many centuries. One of the earliest reputable astrologers to use the system was Guido Bonatti, who, in the 13th century, wrote many aphorisms on the subject and published them in...

Taurus as ascendant

Reliability and common sense are as strong with Taurus ascending as when it is the Sun sign, but here the need for security is even more powerful. As the individual progresses in life, he or she becomes more and more attracted to possessions. Those with a Taurus Ascendant will make a special effort to get on the property ladder as soon as possible, seeing a house as the ultimate in physical and material security. Because of a love of creature comforts, Taureans will surround themselves with...

Taurus in love

In many ways, Taureans are at an advantage when it comes to love. First and foremost, they have a great deal of irresistible natural charm, added to which Taurus is generally considered to produce the most handsome and beautiful people. Such traits are not handicaps, of course, when it comes to attracting lovers. Interestingly -as the decades mount up and provided they have avoided gaining weight - a Taurean's sex appeal and charm will last effectively well into old age. Taureans are truly...

Taurus and careers

Taureans are ambitious and will almost always work out a long-term plan for their lives. There can be problems when elements of risk-taking are built into a job, and these will be faced with considerable apprehension Taureans function best when the work is steady and as constant as possible. Though money-making is of great importance to this zodiac group, Taureans should think very carefully before taking a new position which is less secure than their present one, even if it pays more. The...

The French Court

The royal courts of France and England were no less enthusiastic about astrology than the Vatican. The widow of the French King Henry II, Catherine de'Medici, made sure that an astrologer was present at the birth of their son, the future Louis XIII (1601-43) who in turn ordered Jean-Baptiste Morin to attend at the birth of his son, the future Louis XIV (1638-1715). Later, Morin hid behind the curtains of the royal bedroom to observe the precise moment at which the young Louis XIV and his wife...

Further Study

If you want to do detailed work on the fixed stars in relation to a birth chart, the chart must be fully calculated. If you are simply experimenting, and using a less detailed chart - such as one made by following the instructions in this book - your findings will not be sufficiently accurate. However, each sign is divided into three 30 sections, each representing 10 and, when consulting our tables, you will see that there are corresponding divisions. The first third i -io is palely coloured,...

Neptune through the zodiac

Neptune was active in Cancer from 1901-2 the double year is due to retrograde motion, see box on p243 to 1915. Cancer being the sign of home and family, here was Neptune's main influence during the period that began with the Boer War in South Africa, and ended with the First World War still raging as the planet completed its journey. Children born then suffered again as grown-ups, facing the equally dreadful conditions of the Second World War. World War II was the terrible prospect that awaited...

Specialists

While selecting various possibilities for a career, we must remember that Scorpios are motivated to delve deeply into what fascinates them. While some have breadth of vision, many are specialists and supreme fact-finders. Here are the natural detectives, researchers, forensic surgeons, psychotherapists, and criminal investigators - or even criminals. Choosing different paths in life, we find many Scorpios enjoy the national and merchant navies. They make superb engineers, and often, either as...

Sun sign gemini

Geminians with an Aries Venus are the most passionate of their sign. This adds an interesting perspective to the personality, and enquiring Geminian minds will become even more sceptical than usual when they read about their Sun sign, which will have no mention of a deeply passionate and highly sexed attitude to love. Here are big spenders - even if they are not big earners. This placing stabilizes the light-hearted Geminian attitude to love, and will encourage faithfulness, a deeper expression...

Mars through the zodiac

The planet will be of increased importance and a focal point of the birth chart. It gives an energy force which will need to be burned positively through daily physical work, sport, and exercise. These individuals will in some respects show certain characteristics of Aries. They will want to be out in front and way ahead of any rivals. They are also likely to put themselves first, so an element of selfishness can sometimes emerge. Accident-proneness when...

The First Six Houses

This is the house of the Ascendant, or Rising sign, which, along with the Sun sign, is the most important area of the birth chart. It represents the lifestyle, health, wellbeing, and physical and psychological characteristics of the Ascendant. A planet in this house will modify these characteristics and often alter the appearance of the individual. This house represents our school days and general education, and our relationships with our brothers and sisters, cousins, aunts, and uncles. Our...

Karl Ernst Khur German Astrologer

We know, and humans are conscious of them as archetypes when stirred by highly emotional circumstances, such as those that prompt people to consult astrologers. In his clinical practice, Jung used the horoscope as a starting point from which to build a bridge of understanding between himself and his patients. He looked for common ground between his patients' birth charts and his own. Jung also interested himself in what he called synchronicity, or meaningful patterns of events. These, he...

Cancer in Education Jobs and Money

The youngest Cancerians will, rather than most toddlers, tend to be clinging, and may well be quite frightened when introduced to nursery school. Obviously, the more they get used to this very different atmosphere before their parents leave them, the better. If it is at all possible for a parent to arrange a visit to the premises with their child before he or she starts attendance, it will be a great help - even better if the child already has a friend who attends the same school. But at all...

The Moon is extremely powerful in Cancer because it is in the sign it rules. If by chance you were born at the time of the New Moon, bear in mind the fact that you are known astrologically as a double Cancerian, and those born at the New Moon and at or near sunrise will be triple Cancerians. In such cases, everything you read about Cancer will apply to you - you will be like your Cancer Sun and you will like all who have the Moon in this sign respond to situations in the manner of Cancer.
