Taurus Stellium--Eat, Sleep & Procrastinate

Venusian Beauty, Audrey Hepburn, Wikipedia
With Sun, Mars and Venus in Taurus, and Mercury and Moon heading that way in the next two weeks, I'm sleeping in and my appetite has increased.  So I listened to Mark Husson's Hay House Radio show yesterday and the astrologer talked in detail about Taurus and also the upcoming eclipses.  Apparently, I'm not the only person craving comfort foods at this time or feeling like I'm just plodding my way through life (at this time).  With Mars so closely tied to the Sun right now through a conjunction, people will feel indignant about sleeping in and perhaps choosing unhealthy food (fatty, sweet, indulgent).  And with Venus in its home sign, cooking and eating are definitely on the agenda for most people, even if someone else is doing the cooking such as in the case of a restaurant.

While we need to stay mindful of our eating and other habits during this time, don't become so disciplined that you miss out on this pleasurable time, especially if you live in a place with lots of greenery and flowers, lovely fragrances, and farm fresh food.  And any case, you won't get away with too many bad habits or mindlessness during this time because of the powerful eclipses coming your way.  We might question discipline and responsibility (Saturn conjunct Lunar Eclipse Moon) with indulgence Sun/Mars and Venus in Taurus.  During the Lunar Eclipse Saturn/Moon opposes Mars/Sun with Venus hanging out there on the fringe.  Saturn and Moon provide the overwrought emotions such as guilt while Mars/Sun bring anger and projections on to others, which is often what causes violent acts in the first place.

Venus, Wikipedia
But this is not a lecture on projections and shadows even if the eclipses will bring up those issues for each of us.  I'm including fodder for escape and fantasy in the form of movies with Taurus themes.  While I hope you do the necessary emotional and spiritual work that is presented to you now, if you find yourself needing relief, watch one or two of these movies.  Heck, watch them all.

Taurus Movies:

1. Drink, Eat, Man, Woman (opening scene)

2. Julie and Julia, (cooking school scene)

3. Chocolat (divination scene)

4. Elvira Madigan (Swedish movie)

5. Sabrina (with Audrey Hepburn, cooking school scene)

6. La Dolce Vita (Fellini’s movie about excess)

7. Under a Tuscan Sun (trailer)

8. Much to Do About Nothing (Kenneth Branagh)

9. Ang Lee’s Sense and Sensibility (Jane Austen)

10. Emma (Jane Austen, the proposal)
