Spiritual Interpretation of Taurus Rising
From the spiritual perspective you are expressing the power of desire on all levels of your being. On the subjective level you are able to communicate the intensity of your passion, whether it be in terms of your career, your relationships, or any project you undertake. You believe there is no point in doing something unless you do it well, and you strive for perfection in every area of your life. At the same time, you are constantly aware of your comfort zone, and may shy away from activities that present impossible challenge.
Throughout your life you will develop a personal style for expressing your desires, perhaps learning to moderate them, or perhaps learning more and more skillful means of satisfying them while also presenting a socially graceful face to the world. At the same time your spiritual yearnings lead you to the best expression of your being on this higher level. Finally, you learn to direct your will so that all efforts satisfy both your material desires and your spiritual aspirations. You may find from time to time that you are faced with this question: are my actions being driven by material desires, or am I following my spiritual aspirations? The answer helps to refine your awareness of your deepest motivations.
Proper care of the physical body is important for your spiritual expression. As you emphasize the wholeness and wellness of the physical body, you metaphorically focus on the wholeness and wellness of your spiritual being. The neck and throat become a powerful physical focus for your expression. Because proper speech is so important to you, the organs of speech and the thyroid gland are your most valuable physical attributes. Voice training or other attention to the throat and throat chakra may be important to your development of clear communication. But first you need to listen, to others and to your inner voice.
You have the capacity to understand the duality of the material world and to penetrate the paradoxes that arise in your life. You can learn to see the ebb and flow of energies in your inner experience and in the outer world, and you understand that the attraction and repulsion of these energies leads to eventual synthesis.
You perceive that sexual desire is one expression of duality on the physical level. The power of this duality provides the impulse to transcend mere physical desire and to discover the mystical union of forces. As you gain in experience, your sexual expression may deepen into the ritual of Tantra. Then you will feel the blossoming of spiritual awareness on a higher vibratory level.
Perhaps the greatest challenge you face is the transmutation of knowledge into wisdom. You have to develop spiritual awareness in order to go beyond stubborn attachment to personal desires. Your temper will give way to spiritually directed effort. Blind pursuit of self-interest will give way to a spiritual focus. Self-pity will give way to a concern for all humanity.
