Venus will go into Taurus on Wednesday, April 14th. Salvador Dali was born with Venus in Taurus (and was a Taurus himself). He famously said, “I don’t do drugs. I am drugs.” Venus in Taurus loves a good embodiment.
Just like a Dali painting, Venus in Taurus has a far out side. To the furthest reaches of the universe in fact.
Last post we explored the ideas of inventor and cosmologist, Arthur M. Young and we will stick with him again in this post, namely his ideas about the torus.
Taurus is the 2nd sign of the zodiac, and the torus field is composed of two rotating circularities. One rotation is edging around the donut, the other is through the middle and back up around the side.
It is the rotation that is of importance with the torus, and only the rotation. The rotation is what connects the inner most part of you (and any other creature) with the farthest reaches of the universe. Are you beginning to sense a melting clock?
This is quite natural. As Young explains, in the “phase dimension” (theorized by Arthur Eddington) rotation is all that counts. There is no time. With this dimension Eddington discovered that the curvature of space-time is the same as the rotation that’s implicit in the photon. The curve of space-time and the curve of uncertainty (that exists in each photon) appear to be the same thing. He did what seems to still be impossible today. He married quantum theory with relativity, merging the infinitesimally small with the grand expanse.
Young puts an extra spin to this when he said that the dimension of rotation is also the dimension of choice, a freedom always present in some capacity. He also discovered that the mathematical formula for the torus and the Einstein-Eddington hypersphere was the same.
Taurus then, is the shape of everything, a dimension of pure rotation, connecting us as separate and willful individuals to the farthest reaches of space by design. By our use of choice, we embody this dimension.
Dali said “I dont do drugs. I am drugs.” In the toroidal universe, you don’t make choices you are choice. You are free-will (what Young equates with uncertainty). It is uncertainty, or free-will that underlies all existence. The photon and free-will are one and the same, rotating in sync with the great sweeps of space-time.
Have you ever felt a certain good choice to strengthen you on a real bodily level? How about the opposite? Have you ever been so out of touch with your own power of choice that you felt somewhat outside of yourself?
With this transit it is time to get back in sync with the curve! Trust in your body’s feedback when it comes to choices. It’s, shall we say, well-connected. 😉
Venus will rotate in Taurus until May 8th when she will jump into Gemini!
Happy choosing, and as always happy astro pondering!
