Song Oracle for Venus Direct in Aries: "No Quarter" Led Zeppelin

"They choose the path where no one goes"

With the current infusion of Aries and Taurus vying for center stage, its hard for our bodies and psyches to know whether to speed up or slow down. Aries tells us to bust a move while Taurus insists we slow down and smell the flowers, coffee or any other sensual delight in our midst. It might feel like we are driving with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator just like a New York city cab driver. If life feels like a constant wave of motion sickness for the past few days, you can blame it on the planets. Now that Venus is finally direct and back in Aries where she started the whole reflexive love journey, and Mars is joining her in the impulsive and fiery constellation of Aries, there's plenty of fuel to add to our fire of choice. But now that the Sun and Mercury are in the placid terrain of Taurus, the counterweight of the planetary pull is causing us to pause, reflect and ground. Maybe a sweat lodge image is appropriate here--fire and earth at their purifying best.

Have you been waking up feeling like you have to take over the world or at least burn some carbs immediately followed by the opposite impulse to go back to bed or linger eternally over some home fries and toast? Maybe the cosmic lesson is something often reinforced in Ayurvedic teachings when our constitutions are severely out of balance--insist on copious amounts of mini breaks. Activity is inevitable in this crazy Kali Yuga (age of darkness in Indian philosophy) and slowing down rarely feasible in the hustle and bustle insanity. But the more pregnant (Taurus is the archetype of the ever fertile, ever pregnant earth mother after all) pauses we can inject in our jam-packed schedules, the more grounded and alive we will feel. As @Iamdiddy is obsessed with tweeting lately: "Lock in people! Let's go!" Then again, I think Diddy forgot to ground because he's been bedridden and sick for days.
