Uranus in Taurus Predictions
I have plenty of thoughts on Uranus in Taurus. But one of my Uranus in Taurus predictions is that people are going to be backing out of the beauty-industrial complex at warp-speed, the chemicals, insecurity sells and all. I recently got brilliant results from a cream called Magnificent Skin Lover. Its ingredients were black seed oil and hemp I think. It was literally edible.
Recently, mid-pedicure, I just felt repulsed by the synthetics and scent of the nail polish. And yes, there are more natural versions. Still, it felt like someone was layering car paint over the skin and the whole nail spa energy was retro. Pisces people are super thing about their feet, of course. First, I felt that this fresh desire for bare nails was attuning to the Uranus in (Venus Ruled) Taurus beauty Zeitgeist. Then I speculated that it might be more on the ‘giving up’ spectrum, a few stops before total matted hair hippie ville.
Voila, the new book from Nadine Artemis – Renegade Beauty. I’ve always loved her oils & potions. But this book is a whole trip beyond that. Her philosophy is fantastic, going beyond just the obvious ‘don’t lather yourself in toxic chemical gunk’ admonition. It is more like a Uranus in Taurus manifesto.
And, yes, she says that nail polish is classified as “hazardous household waste,” that the nails need to breathe and that all they require is oils to moisturize if dry and a little bit of baking soda/lemon juice if yellow. Plus nutrition to maintain, of course.
