In the Astroshamanic Binary System Sun in Taurus (2) and Moon in Pisces (12) constitute Binary 2.12, or Binary number 24.
Sun in Taurus and Moon in Pisces combine Fixed Earth and Mutable Water, integrating Taurus’s patience, pragmatism and resourcefulness with Pisces’s sensitivity, transcendence, compassion and inspired creativity.
If your practical life is based on an illusion, no matter how you seem to keep your feet on the ground, they are truly in the air. You are bound to fall. You are dreaming, and the ground where you believe to stand, including yourself, will vanish as soon as you wake up. However, if you are aware of your dreams, and there is a luminous one which you truly like, then you can decide it to be part of your practical life. No matter how impossible it seems to be, you can gather the courage and determination so that your dream keep its feet on the ground.
Although these the two signs are rather different, when they are luminously harmonised, they can provide a relentless capacity to manifest honourable dreams and achieve the impossible. They spontaneously grasp the power to employ imagination in order to shape physical forms, and serve at their best when they feel entitled to operate accordingly.
For this purpose it can be useful to relax and take a short break from your practicle life, moving consciously into the core of your dream, gaining clarity, and then come back and get down to work.
“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.”
Sun in Taurus and Moon in Pisces are in a sextile (60°) aspect, which involves two complementary signs, sharing the same polarity, yet not the same element. The binary can work harmoniously and offer significant opportunities as long as there is awareness and clarity of intention on both sides.
Qualities: creativity, imagination, practicality, inspiration, art.
Grievances: stubbornness, self-pity, dismay.
When the waning Moon is in Pisces at 60° from the Sun in Taurus, the phase of Balsamic Moon, or Waning Crescent Moon, starts. It is a crucial receptive phase, a time of healing and rest, yet also of intense preparation and completion. Here you prepare for a new cycle, the next New Moon, and let go of the residues of the old. What is mainly needed in this phase is a work of release and forgiveness. It is easy at this stage to feel restless, excited or willing to change everything and start doing something totally new and unpredictable Yet, until you learn to release the grievances recycled from the past, you will never truly create anything new. The question here is: “What do I release? What do I take in the next cycle?”
Astroshamanic Seal: an arrow pointing upward, standing upon an oval circle. This seal reminds us of our function as gatekeepers between from ordinary to ecstatic realities.
After ingesting a pale green potion, I see a Spirit with grahic features, rubbing its hands and causing the emergence of a twig with a triangle pointing downward. The triangular head of the Spirit is pointing upward. The twig transforms into a pulp, gradually taking the shape of a circle, which the Spirit wears up to its belly. The Spirit ties it with maximum pressure, so that its upper body explodes, releasing abundant water inundating the environment and creating marshes. A boat arrives with two people on board, they give me a heart-shaped stone with the seal engraved.
Another vision involves a tribal being holding a fish-shaped drum, held vertically and beaten by a drumstick. There is a desk with the map of the island of the dancing people. Who sits at the desk has the task to preserve the access to other realities. It is your task and you can gladly accept it.

PHILOSOPHY & SPIRITUALITY
Leonardo da Vinci: born on 15 April 1452, with Sun in Taurus, Moon in Pisces and Ascendant in Sagittarius, he is regarded as one of the greatest geniuses that ever lived on this planet. He designed several inventions that anticipated modern technology (helicopters, solar panels, calculator, tanks, etc.), realised outstanding progresses in the sutdy of anatomy, astronomy and enigineering, and produced some of the most popular paintings, such as the Mona Lisa (probably an anagram of the Egyptian fertility deities Amon and L’Isa, the Italian for Isis)and The Last Supper. In art he devised techniques such as chiaroscuro (contrasting light and darkness) and sfumato (smoky effect). In recent books, such as Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Leonardo is supposed to have served as leader of the Priory of Sion, a secret order whose mission was to keep the secret of Mary Magdalene and her marriage to Jesus alive. In his Last Supper Leonardo appears to leave clues about this secret. The disciple identified as John in the picture might actually be Mary Magdalene.
“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” “Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.” “Although nature commences with reason and ends in experience it is necessary for us to do the opposite, that is to commence with experience and from this to proceed to investigate the reason.”
Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.
Experience does not err. Only your judgments err by expecting from her what is not in her power.
I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time.
Marriage is like putting your hand into a bag of snakes in the hope of pulling out an eel.
Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence. “The art of procreation and the members employed therein are so repulsive, that if it were not for the beauty of the faces and the adornments of the actors and the pent-up impulse, nature would lose the human species.”
The function of muscle is to pull and not to push, except in the case of the genitals and the tongue.
