Sun’s ingress into tropical Taurus happened on April 19th, 2018 at 23:12 EDT).
The mythologem of the Minotaur – half-man and half-bull monster, who lived in the depths of a labyrinth and was vanquished finally by the hero, Theseus – makes us acquainted with the essentials of the spiritual task of the natives having natal Taurus Sun. As Minotaur symbolizes the lower instinctual and animalistic nature of the human being by which we can be trapped into the ’Samsara’-like ’Maze’ of the persistent incarnations, Theseus is the higher Self being able to ’transmutate’ these lower forces into controllable spiritual qualities – with the aid of the ’Thread of Ariadne’ that means the ’Feminine Power’ or, which is the same thing, the ’Pure Intuition’.
Of course, for a native with Taurus Sun, similarly to that having Taurus Ascendant, it is not easy to live without sensual pleasures, but there is no problem with this ’joie-de-vivre’ if native is constantly looking for the ’subtle’ principles beyond the merely ’fleshly’ level… If he/she learns to be more and more ’vigilant’ or ’waking’ concerning the control of the somatic and psychosomatic processes, the instinctual drives may lose their compelling strength progressively and fleshly desires can be transformed step by step into the enjoyment of the higher psychic and spiritual recognitions… Transcending our latent animal dispositions as well as transforming the stubbornness into perseverance and the stupefying material inquiries into uncompromising and systematic thinking – these are the most important spiritual duties of each native having natal Taurus Sun. >>> More Astro Info
