Today’s Oracle takes us to the Taurus weekly for Aug. 19, 2011.
In a little while, the Sun and your ruling planet Venus will move into your sympathetic earth sign Virgo. This will allow you to cool off a little, and consider your life in a more rational way. When you do, you’ll see that you cannot live for both security and freedom; when you want passion or inspiration, you cannot be obsessed with safety. It’s not really possible to have total control and enjoy freedom. Ponder this a bit — notice the extent to which trying to have supposed safety has compromised your ability to experience creativity and pleasure. You can afford to experiment, and to err on the side of being a little wild, because you can trust yourself. That is the real exercise, and you may at first find it strange that the more faith in your own choices you have, the better choices you make.
The Daily Oracle offers a horoscope selected randomly by our Intelligent Archive Oracle program, unique to Planet Waves. It’s also a database of my horoscopes going back to the late 1990s. You can use the Intelligent Archive Oracle to answer questions and give you ideas for how to handle problems and situations you cannot see through. This feature is available to our Galaxy, Backstage and Core Community members. See this link for more information.
