Taurus: 22.04 - 21.05
When the Sun enters Taurus Spring is already well on the way. Mother Nature is clad in her most beautiful flower dress and romance is in the air. The sap is rising and Nature has turned into a feast for the senses. Taurus loves sensuous pleasures, anything they can touch and feel, smell or taste delights them. They appreciate beauty and have a keen sense of aesthetics and the arts. They believe in the tactile, material aspects of life and apply the principles of gardening to growing their wealth - knowing when to sow the seeds, how to nurture the tender growth and to harvest when the time is ripe - always keeping some seeds to start off the next season's cycle. Planning for the long term rather than for short term profit is the Taurean key to success. Taurus is also associated with builder - every strong structure is built on firm foundations and each brick's strength depends on those that have been laid before. House and garden provide shelter and food, the basic security foundation of life and Taurus primary concern. Taurus appreciates high quality and has a keen sense of the price/value ratio and he has an instinctive nose for 'a good deal'. Taurus' weakness lies in overindulgence, procrastination or sheer indolence. Time flies when you are having fun smelling the flowers along the way - but what happens when the flowers are gone and no seeds have been planted for the future? Another Taurean pitfall can be a sense of insecurity that leads to possessiveness, either in their personal relationships or regarding their material assets. Taurus is ruled by Venus who loves his sensual nature. Taurus will benefit from the influence of the Moon who not only makes this sign extra fertile, but also imparts a caring and nurturing attitude.
Candles can be burnt to create a special ambience at any time, though their soft light is particularly conducive for romantic occasions. Candles are widely used for spiritual and magical work. Ritualistic candle burning aids concentration on a specific magical intent. As you focus on the flame visualize your intentions being consumed and transformed into ethereal thought forms. Energy follows thought. To turn your dreams, wishes and visualizations into realities, follow thought with action, charged with the cosmic energy of the sacred fire.
To ensure best results and minimise any possible dangers, please take heed of the following precautions: Burn candles for one hour per inch of diameter to ensure even burning. The wax needs time to warm up and melt. Burning the candle for less than the recommended time will usually result in a hole burning down the middle of the candle and the wick will eventually drown. Keep the wick trimmed to about ¼ inch to reduce smokiness and dripping. Always burn candles on suitable surfaces, preferably fire-proof dishes or candleholders, which will also catch any dripping wax. Don't expose lit candles to draughts as this results in uneven burning an excessive drippiness. Keep candles out of sunlight to preserve their colours. Use your common sense when playing with fire. Keep candles out of reach of children and animals.
