    Taurus in Astrology: Meaning and Traits

    Taurus in Astrology: Meaning and Traits

    In episode 353 astrologers Mo and Pao of the Fixed Astrology Podcast join me to talk about the meaning of the zodiac sign Taurus in astrology, and some of the traits and characteristics of people born with that sign prominent in their birth chart.

    Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and it is a feminine or nocturnal sign, fixed, earthy, and ruled by the planet Venus.

    This is the second in a series of episodes where we do a deep-dive into each of the signs of the zodiac, one per episode, in order to really understand their core meaning and significations.

    Mo and Pao both have Taurus placements prominent in their birth chart. Mo has her Taurus Sun and South Node in Taurus, and Pao has Taurus rising with the Moon in the first house.

    During the course of the episode we talk about various keywords and traits associated with Taurus and also look at some birth charts of famous people who were born with different planets in that sign.

    Some of the keywords we discussed were drawn from a Twitter survey:

    Sharing Astrology Transit Stories

    Sharing Astrology Transit Stories

    Episode 350 is a recording of a meeting of the Denver Astrology Group where attendees shared stories about transits they experienced over the past two years since our last meeting in early 2020, hosted by astrologer Chris Brennan.

    The Denver Astrology Group was started in May of 2008, and held a meeting at the Mercury Cafe on the second Saturday of every month for 12 years, until the pandemic hit in March of 2020.

    This meeting was held on April 16, 2022 at the Mercury Cafe in downtown Denver, and it was our first meeting back in two years since the pandemic started.

    Because a lot has happened since that time, we thought it would be good to hold a discussion or workshop style meeting where members could share some of their stories about important transits and notable events that have happened in their lives over the past two years since we last met.

    Chris led the meeting and opened by talking about the inception charts of the Denver Astrology Group and the Mercury Cafe, and sharing a personal story about his own transits, and then opened it up for audience members to come up to the mic and share their story about a positive or negative transit that they experienced over the past couple of years and how it was reflected in their life.

    It ended up being a pretty great demonstration about how different types of transits work, what astrologers look for, as well as how to talk to people about their birth chart.

    We plan to resume meetings of the Denver Astrology Group on the second Saturday of each month at the Mercury Cafe.

    May 2022 Astrology Forecast

    May 2022 Astrology Forecast

    In episode 349 astrologers Chris Brennan, Austin Coppock, and special guest co-host Steph Koyfman look ahead at the astrology of May 2022.

    The astrology of May features the first part of Mercury retrograde, beginning in Gemini on May 10 and entering Taurus almost two weeks later.

    There is also a solar eclipse in Taurus on April 30 and a lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 16, starting the new eclipse season with the nodes on the Taurus/Scorpio axis until 2023.

    There’s a tonal change as Venus, Mars, and Jupiter all move into Aries over the course of May, away from the mutable energy of Pisces.

    Late in the month, there is a New Moon in Gemini, although since it occurs on the second to last day of the month we are going to save most of that discussion for the next forecast.

    We open the episode by talking about recent world events and how the astrology has played over the past four weeks since our last forecast.

    This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.

    Ancient Astrology Volume 2, with Demetra George

    Ancient Astrology Volume 2, with Demetra George

    In episode 348, astrologer Demetra George discusses her new book, Ancient Astrology in Theory and Practice, Volume Two.

    This is the second of two volumes where Demetra delivers a comprehensive look at the practical use of Hellenistic astrology, bringing to completion a cycle that started in 1993 when she became the very first subscriber of the Project Hindsight translation project.

    In volume two Demetra takes a closer look at the houses and their role in interpreting a birth chart, taking special care to look at the significations of the houses throughout history, and tracing the common themes that run throughout the 2000 year long tradition.

    In our discussion we focused mainly on talking about the significations of the houses, and how some of the significations changed over the course of the tradition, while other stayed the same.

    The book was published by Rubedo Press on April 20, 2022, and can be ordered here:

Deep and Rich Conversation

Such nourishing, intelligent, thoughtful conversation between Steven Forrest and Chris Brennen. Thank you.

Incredibly Educational and In Depth!

I can listen to Chris Brennan literally ALL DAY. The most educational astrology podcast I have found. I greatly appreciate this work and will continue to recommend!

Kinda weird

Consistently the best astrological podcast out there but this recent analysis of Aries missed the mark. I think it was supposed to be about the astrological sign Aries but was a psychological analysis of co-astrologer Rick Levine. Not really that interesting!
