Today’s Oracle takes us to the Taurus monthly for October 1999.
Many horoscope signs are concerned with the nature of dualism; for example, the twins of Gemini representing two aspects of one person, perhaps signifying the body-soul relationship. The dualism of Taurus has been spoken of as the “horns of the dilemma,” signifying the deeply-rooted contradictions and difficult choices that characterize your often tumultuous inner life. If you’ve been paying attention, you’re picking up on the fact that there’s a crucial purpose to what some would see merely as pointless philosophical struggle, and what others would see as life’s tests. I’m content with neither of those viewpoints, and I propose you not settle for them, either. It is clear that you are moving inward through layers of yourself, sometimes with what seems like terrifying speed and at other times, barely fast enough. This is a journey toward something within you, some seed idea or core concept that has, in truth, guided your whole life so far. As you proceed inward, you may feel compelled to cast off aspects of yourself, to confront seeming “flaws” in your nature, and to endure what seem like personal losses. This will be easier if you remember that these are merely layers of yourself you no longer need, and that what seem to be sacrifices will move you faster toward embodying your untouched and invulnerable inner spirit.
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.
