Taurus and Gemini

Phoebe would like to point out that we all have all the twelve zodiac signs in our horoscope – some with planets in them and some are empty – meaning some of the themes addressed are in the foreground and some in the background of our lives. “I recommend readers to read all twelve quotes, not just their star sign, for a wider perspective on the themes of the month,” she says.


Mood of the Month

“To discover your being is the beginning of life. Then each moment is a new discovery, each moment brings a new joy, a new mystery opens its doors, a new love starts growing in you, a new compassion that you have never felt before, a new sensitivity… And this sensitivity will create new friendships for you – friendships with trees, with birds, with animals, with mountains, with rivers, with oceans, with stars. Life becomes richer as love grows, as friendliness grows.”

Osho, Beyond Enlightenment, Ch 28

“Do not stand behind, move in the act… Try anything that will work. You are running – become the running. Do not be the runner. Become the running and forget the runner. Feel that there is no runner inside, just the process of running. You are the process, a river-like process running. Nobody is there inside. It is quiet inside and there is only a process.”

“Your body is the temple of the divine, the abode of the divine, so do not treat your body as an object. It is sacred, it is holy. And while you are taking a breath in, it is not only you who is taking the breath; it is the divine within you. You are eating, you are moving or walking, look at it in this way – it is not you but the divine moving in you. Then the whole thing becomes absolutely devotional.”

‘Make a point on a wall and concentrate on it… Then go on concentrating until the point dissolves… If you persist, if you insist and do not allow the mind to move, the point dissolves… If only this point remained and now the point also dissolves, then the consciousness cannot move anywhere. There is no object to move to – all the dimensions are closed. The mind is thrown to itself; the consciousness is thrown to itself and you enter the center.”

“On the screen the film is running, and you have become so absorbed in it that the only thing you know is the film… In the mirror of the mind the world is reflected; that is what dreaming is. And you are so deeply involved in it, so much identified with it, that you have completely forgotten who you are. This is what being asleep means – the dreamer is lost in the dreaming… Unless dreaming ceases completely, you cannot awaken unto yourself.”

“A total man is centered. Whatsoever he is doing, he remains in the center. If his mind is functioning… thinking goes on in his head but he remains centered in the navel. The center is never missed. He uses the head but he never moves to the head. He uses the heart but he never moves to the heart… His life is a deep balance. He is never one-sided. He is never at any extreme – he remains in the middle. Buddha has called this the middle path!”

“Whatsoever you are doing, keep your attention in the gap between the two breaths… This practice is to be done while you are doing something else. You are eating – go on eating and be attentive of the gap. You are walking – go on walking and be attentive of the gap. You are going to sleep – lie down, let sleep come, but you go on being attentive to the gap… Activity distracts the mind, activity calls for your attention again and again. Do not be distracted. Be fixed at the gap and… let the activity continue.”

“Meditate on the sky, a summer sky with no clouds, endlessly empty, empty and clear, nothing moving in it, in its total virginity. Contemplate on it, meditate on it and enter this clarity… If you meditate on open unclouded sky, suddenly you will feel that the mind is disappearing, the mind is dropping away. There will be gaps. Suddenly… it is as if the clear sky has entered in you also… and when there is no thought, no cloud, the outer sky and the inner become one.”

Take them as divine gifts and approach them with a very grateful heart. For example tantra has developed many techniques for the transformation of sexual energy.

“With individuals, with societies, with cultures, with nations, this happens. If you have ideals you need not transform yourself. You can always hope to be transformed in the future by the ideals themselves, and you can condemn others very easily. Tantra says to remain with yourself. Whatsoever you are, accept it. Do not condemn yourself, do not condemn others… Remain with the fact of anger, greed and sex, and know the fact in its total facticity… Move into it to the roots, and, remember, whenever you can move to the roots of anything you transcend it.”

When you touch someone’s hand do not only touch his hand, feel your touch also, feel yourself also – that you are here in this touch, present totally. While eating, do not only eat, feel yourself eating as well. This feeling, this sensitivity, must penetrate deeper and deeper into your mind. One day suddenly you are awake at your center functioning for the first time.”

“You have just to listen, not do anything. Listening to the birds, the wind passing through the pine trees, or to some music, or to the noise of the traffic – just listening, doing nothing, and great silence comes in, and great peace starts falling and showering on you. It is easier through the ear than through the eye… because the ear is passive, non-aggressive. It cannot do anything to existence; it can only let it happen.”

“When you are in deep love, for the first time you encounter the inner reality… When you are in love, the body of the beloved falls away, disappears. The form is no more and the formless is revealed. You are facing an abyss. That is why we are so afraid of love… If you love someone, if you really love, his body is bound to disappear. In some moments of climax, of peak, the form will dissolve, and through the beloved you will enter the formless.”

Osho, Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, Vol 1, Ch 1
