  “Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the under wood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.”
— Beau Taplin

 

Genus sagacity so APT for the Full Moon in Taurus this Thurs/Friday.

The Upanishads kind of agree?
“I am undebaseable; the real Substance in me can never be debased.
What CAN be adulterated is only the transient apparent form the one Substance assumes.

I am the Reality, which seemingly leave the living being at death.
What is real in the being, is the Substance that underlies the life-breath”.

Love this quote too, Mystic. What a beautiful analogy. Getting my bod back to optimum health (and hotness lol) is my priority once all the relocation / moving merde is done with.
The full moon on Friday morning will be exact on my Taurus MC/Scorp IC, exact actually just as the truck is pulling up to collect my stuff and transport it from my past to my future. Cool 🙂

I love this quote and you know the wonderful thing about the body is that it doesn’t sit round thinking about what it’s going to do. It just gets on and does it. And keeps on adapting…My body is almost two months post surgery – I can see how it has adjusted itself over that time to its new state.

I’m loving this quote, especially right now. Thanks MM! The power of rejuvenation and the full cycle of transformation. The body may never be the same after injury or illness and eventually we leave this body but the life force remains, and we can heal even if we’re not ‘cured’ of our ailments. Not easy, for sure. Just saw an info graphic on how we are like 40% stardust and 60% water and that is it, what we are physically. Spiritually I think we are like semiconductors for the general life force that courses through our universe. Anyway, I always… Read more »

I also love Taurus energy, I find the energy very grounding and calming and healing. Many Taurean friends in my life time, men and women. And, of course, my recent guy, too….that will be part of why I’ll miss him if we are truly done.

Looking forward to this full moon..

Well, I hate to bring up Pluto on this thread too, sorry, but I went from years of slowly dying barren desert with ridick health issues to a surge of vitality. Tabula Rasa on many levels. I do believe in the body’s ability to regenerate drastically, esp after the eradication of psych sludge.
To me this quote makes sense.

Hey Schmob, for me it was a lot of cultivating my daily faith practice through impending and uncontrollable loss – knowing things will pass, and connecting to your own sense of spirituality, love and abundance amidst the seeming lack of it on the physical realm. I do have a Alpine Ibex(Cap) SN so maybe that helped me but I still got my ass kicked bad. Over and over I might add. Correcting imbalances on every level – mental, emotional, spiritual that help with the physical. I couldnt do that without first feeling all of my feelings, confronting everything I didnt… Read more »

Thank you from me too, 6 of Cups. What an amazing journey. Do you have much going on in the natal 4th house (or did you have transits through the 4th at the time of your transformation)? Just wondering since you’ve done all that work on the roots and also out of personal interest (I have 5 planets int he 4th). I also have a cap SN that I find confusing to be honest. I don’t relate to Cap ambition/efficiency that much and I struggle to accept/fully understand Kataka NN as well.. I would love to hear your thoughts on… Read more »

Me too, just completed Pluto transit of 6th house where at the end of it, it transited over my Venus.
Had really bad time with uterine fibroids, anemia, extreme fatigue, fainting, times I lay there wondering if it was possible that I might die, not in a dramatic way, in a practical way, like, hmmm, maybe this is it for me..?
Finally got some medical help and my vitality is back, too. Never thought it would be, either.

Glad you got yours back too!

People are strange about mortality. I’ve experienced no benefit in discussing it with anyone ever.

To quote a Taurus:
“Most people, as I’ve said, are stupid and lazy and really only concerned with getting through the next couple of hours with silliness and stimulation and something to eat. Be polite. Look ahead. Ignore them. Do the work. Move forward.”–Katharine Hepburn

The topics I love about life/death/mysteries/conspiracy theories are too intense for the average muggle. They are more concerned with gossip and trying each other down, caught up in the “rat race.”
Small talk annoys me.
I have a business “friend” who throws parties that I am obligated to attend. They sit around and talk about drinking. If I start a real conversation I get the don’t step outta line glare.
I prefer to hang out with weirdos (open-minded), the convos are better…;)

I am fascinated by death. I don’t understand why people are so down on it. As if we get to write natural law or be special victims of it by moralizing. Life comes from death. This chick was ranting about Raw Food and life force like eating cooked things is eating death. You know what? Life comes from death. All those veggies grow in death. Its how we digest. And our body will be digested in time. We give one body back and grow another, like a puppet. I’m sure we all have more than one meat puppet here. Because… Read more »

Like the iChing just told me “Don’t try to talk others into accepting truth. Self-development is made step-by-step, and each must find his own pace. Reticence toward others and innocence in your own attitude is advised.”

prowlncrab

Peeps can get totally nuts about death. No perspective whatsoever. But I guess that’s due to the welded in belief that this place, this reality or whatever you want to call life on Earth is the only “real world” and that nothing exists beyond it either within the physical universe or in other realms. I suppose it takes trust and faith, plus a good dash of spiritual awakening to see through the falseness of this belief. I don’t know why exactly but I’ve always known that this place is but one of many.

I’m actually worried about her because being on a raw food diet has killed and seriously damaged the health of people and she has a history with eating disorders (bulimia in her case). I think eating is the first step in accepting death. And we must eat. But…people deny even that and make it about ego and control. I mean, I don’t think you even need to consider other realms to see reality in this one and even that much is denied.

Having been with Mum through her last year of life, I don’t think you can discuss it meaningfully until you are faced with the prospect of dying. Mum’s comment when people would say to her ’79 years is a good innings’, is ‘Tell that to a 78 year old.’ One thing that being faced with one’s own mortality can achieve is helping you to realise how most things in life truly do not matter…and to let go of resentments. What it did for me, not being the person dying, but being confronted by that situation in someone close to me,… Read more »

Yes I think that’s it. If you’ve been touched by death in some way maybe that rawness makes it suddenly vital to engage with forever more. Well for me at least, a mercurial fishy.

The Taurus is back. At least, we’re scheduled to see each other on the 11th. I wanted to give davidl a chance to say I told you so. No Aries should be denied that.

Ha ha ! I’m one of those eyebrow raising rams too. Words not necessary, They Know, We Know, We know they know … it’s the eyebrow acknowledgement, like a Mason handshake really.

I have been known to do the coughing acknowledgement too, to close family and friends who miss the subtlety of la brow.

This beau tamplin must be pretty young and healthy, because as far as i know the body is fragile. wrinkling, sun spotting, bones creaking as early as your 20’s. Now if he had said the mind or spirit, i might buy that. but no bro the body is weaksauce.

You can feel the aching truth of it.
Although I do love the forest analogy. Venus in Taurus here.

“You will grow back over and over..”.
Are they referring to reincarnation or do I just see it everywhere, lol?

Surly, ‘weaksauce’ bods can be organic temples – all temples do is provide a place of worship for the spirit after all, no?

My Taurean body LOVES sandalwood. Can be intense at times, but it was the first scent I was ever given by an Aromatherapist and it’s been part of all the base notes of my perfumes over the years to boot.

Maybe a physician can confirm or debunk this. I have heard that every 7 years or so our whole body is sort of replaced by a new one. Every cell replaced by a new one.

Some parts of us renew every few days – eg. intestinal lining. Others take longer. Only neurons and nerve cells never renew (but are repaired), but even so there is that ever present neuroplasticity – you become what you think.
