Personality Traits – Taurus sometimes gets a bad rap for being too focused on the material, but the lesson for Taurus is to experience a relationship with material objects, and yet to not define their own vision of themselves by the things (or lack of things) that surround them. Because of this, individuals with a great deal of Taurus energy can project how they feel about themselves onto their possessions. This can also create a tendency to feel unrecognized if someone does not comment on their appearance, house, car or whatever is important to them.

In a Relationship – Taurus will be picky about their own appearance and even your appearance as well. It is not as if they view you as a possession, but they do consider everything around them to be a refection of them, and that does include your appearance. Taurus would rather spend money on saving up to have “nice things” then to purchase something that will do in a pinch. For example, having 2 pairs of high quality socks will be more important to them than 20 pairs of socks from a discount store. This can be a point for great dissension within a relationship if Taurus’s partner does not understand why this viewpoint is important to them.

Spiritual Health – Taurus will want Spirit to “prove themselves” in some way when it comes to Spirit allowing and assisting them with their life. This “proof” will be in whatever form Taurus deems necessary for the moment. Taurus may try different beliefs over time, but when they value a specific belief system, they will stick with it, and even defend it quite vehemently.

Emotional Health – It will be very helpful for Taurus to balance talking with taking action. If one of these becomes out of balance, they can tend to feel burnt out. Taurus would also benefit from belonging to a group that has passion for their interests, like a Classic Car Club, Art Gallery or whatever collectibles and keepsakes interest them.

Mental Health – Taurus can be a bit of a “Hope Junkie” where they live in the future, because “things will be better when I have this or that”. If Taurus can learn to appreciate their life in the now moment, they will find that they begin to experience more messages and synchronicities about allowing their goals to be accomplished. But, if they stay in that place of future thinking, they can lose a grip on being able to accurately assess their priorities.

Physical Health – Taurus should pay attention to digestion and food related conditions. Taurus can be prone to diabetes, liver dysfunction and stomach ulcers. This is because they can fill their life with food and other substances if they do not feel that their needs are being met in other ways. Taurus can also be susceptible to sore throats, and thyroid issues.

Relationship with Food – Taurus individuals tend to be brand devotees, at least until they find something better. The food they choose will be the highest measure of quality by their standards. It would be a rare occasion to see a Taurus buy the store brand of anything. Taurus also likes to eat trendy foods and you can find them at any popular food establishment, where they will probably know the wait staff, or at very least, the maitre-de.

The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is a very popular topic these days. With so much emphasis in the media on the economy and lack of work, many souls are now beginning to search for new and different ways to bring about Abundance in their lives.

The Law of Attraction is a Universal Law that states that whatever you put your energy toward, that is what you will draw into your life. Often times the positive aspects of the Law of Attraction are overemphasized, but in order to become a Master of your own destiny, you need to understand all of the ramifications of this Universal Law. Therefore, you must take into consideration that the converse of this Law is also true. Whatever is in your life, you drew it there because somehow it is your creation.

When you look at the life that you have designed for yourself, it is important that you look at the things that you would like to change and what you would like them to be. Once you have determined what those areas of your life are, then you need to ask yourself if there is anything blocking you from making those desired changes.

Do you have any lingering fears or other unresolved fear based energy? Are you living a life out of balance in one area? Are you run down and tired? Are you putting the needs of others above yourself? All of these things play a role in your ability to manifest what you need and want in life. Knowing yourself and understanding your subconscious patterns allows you to be in control of what you are drawing into your energy. Without that knowledge, you unknowingly are allowing your subconscious patterns to dictate your ability to manifest.

The real surprise here is that once you get a stronghold on the patterns that persist in your life, you will be able to stay one step ahead of the Ego. By understanding a pattern in your life, you are able to start releasing it, thus freeing up more energy to manifest the life that you desire.

Yes, manifestation starts with having an idea of what you want, but it is much more than that. Don’t be tied into the exact specifications in which that vision will arrive to you. Yes, there will be some qualifications necessary for manifesting what you need, however remember to watch for the wants of the Ego chiming in. Manifestation can also occur in steps, so sometimes you will receive something that is close to what you want, but then you also receive the ability to turn it into everything you desire.

For example: You wish to attract a new home for yourself. You need: at least 3 bedrooms, space for an office, solid construction, working appliances and a convenient location. You want: Cherry wood flooring, ceiling fans, a hot tub, heated floors, crown molding, etc. Now you can always add the wants later, so it is important to recognize the difference. If you get discouraged because you have attracted something which only has your needs and not your wants, you may miss out on a great opportunity.

It is like baking a whole cake in the oven, but when it comes time to take it out, you have put so many expectations on it, now all that’s left is a small crumb of perfection. Allow yourself to manifest the entire cake, then once you take it out of the oven, you can decide which piece to eat.

Astrology also plays an important role in your ability to manifest; the planets can influence the ease or difficulty at which you can manifest items or situations in your life. It is important to learn about your Natal chart and transits, to see if your timing is to your benefit, or if that timing will be a hindrance.

To manifest with the best chance for success; put out your intention, stay open, understand the Subconscious and use Astrology to your advantage. There is no need to send your request more that once. Once your intention has been sent to the Universe, it is an order ready to be filled. It is best to let that order run its course, because if you keep changing the order you placed, you will be altering the energy that has already been put forth.

Be patient. When you are patient and calm, you allow your body to be in a state of receiving. It is this receptive state that allows the information, situation or item you requested to be brought to you. Remember to live life, laugh and have fun, for this keeps your Ego occupied and free from trying to subconsciously control your manifestation order.

See what you can manifest today! Try for a free latte or magazine, or perhaps you want to hear from a friend that you haven’t spoken with in a while. Try starting out with small fun things to manifest and when you start seeing your efforts pay off, you can start upping your order with the Universe. Here’s to the Law of Attraction, may you use it wisely!
