Astrological Associations - Taurus 11-20 Degrees


Taurus is represented by the Hierophant. Taurus is ruled by Venus, which is represented by the Empress. The second decan of Taurus is the 6 Disks (Moon in Taurus), which is associated with the Prince Disks.

As the Empress gives birth to the next generation of rulers, the Hierophant gives birth to the next generation of spiritual leaders.

Empress/Prince Disks
As Earth Mother, the Empress is the image of fertility. It comes naturally to her. The opposite is true of the Prince though. Instead of just planting a seed and watching it grow, he has to think the whole process through before he makes any move. But when he does make his move, it will be the right one.

Empress/6 Disks
Hathor (Empress) was the goddess of music, dance and song, which is being represented in the 6. Both cards also deal with bounty - in the Empress, it's the bounty of harvest, while in the 6, it's the bounty of offerings to the goddess.

Hierophant/Prince Disks
The bull ties together the Prince and the Hierophant through the suggestion of strength and fertility (both in the sense of siring offspring and in the sense of making things grow). The authority represented by the Hierophant is authority that the Prince will grow into.

Hierophant/6 Disks
The 6 is like the Hierophant in that both central figures unite the mundane with the otherworldly. Both cards also deal with a purity of purpose (as shown by Osiris' white robe and the dancer's nudity).

Prince Disks/6 Disks
The Prince appears to be more about thinking than doing while the 6 appears to be more about doing in the moment without thinking about it.
