Sun enters Taurus

by Eric Williams

April 20, 2011  Today the Sun, and all the rest of us, can take a deep breath and relax into the sign of Taurus. Taurus is an earth sign, symbolized by the rock solid bull.  It has been a crazy time with Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, a fire sign. And now we have  Venus entering Aries, just to add to the excitement.  To read my post on the Aries riot, click here.

We all need to slow down and connect to the earth, get grounded. It is very easy to go too fast and get burned out. Fortunately we have the reminder of how important  earth energy is to soothing our nerves in the upcoming, Earth Day, Friday, April 22nd. It is essential in our fast paced world to get some real honest to goodness downtime. I find that just sitting outside and listening to the wind, and birds, and watching the changing seasons really centers and grounds me. Some people love to cook, or knit, or work with wood. Anything to slow down our synapses so we don’t overload our circuits.

Find some good Earth Day events near to you, and take the day off from electronics. One whole day with no cell phone, twitter, facebook, email, or internet. Wow, amazing thought.
