TAURUS: Aug. 14-20

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): William Turner, a 19th-century English landscape painter born under the sign of Taurus, aimed to convey the emotional impact scenes had on him. He testified that once, he had himself tied to a ship’s mast during a snowstorm so he could experience its full effects firsthand. The result? “Snow Storm – Steam-Boat off a Harbor’s Mouth,” a painting composed mostly of tempestuous swirls. What’s the equivalent for you? Think of a way you could be safe as you treat yourself to an up-close encounter with elemental energies.
