Taurines are gluttons; they love what is beautiful and gorgeous. Taurines love much and suffer much because they go through great amorous deceptions. When Taurines become furious, they are real furious bulls. Taurines are like the ox: hardworking and tenacious.
-Manual Of Practical Magic, Samael Aun Weor
Now, let us begin explaining the exercises of the constellation of Taurus. The cortege of stars that form the constellation of Taurus is the house of Venus, the ineffable star of love, the break of dawn and consequently, Taurus is of Venusian nature. Taurines are of amorous and Venusian nature due to this. They love much in love and always pass through great deceptions Taurines are tame and industrious like the bull, that symbolizes that group of stars, but, at times, they are also “aggressive” like the bull, they are tenacious and gluttons, romantic and sensual. They love music, dance and beauty. They have an ability for all types of manual arts.
Taurus rules the larynx and the neck. The larynx is also a sexual uterus where the verb is born. The creative larynx will be the sexual organ of the future divine humanity. The sexual fire of the kundalini becomes a creator in the word. In our works titled “The Perfect Matrimony”, “The Revolution of Bel”, and “Treatise of Occult Medicine and Practical Magic”, we already have extensively spoken about the Kundalini and we taught the Great Arcanum or supreme secret for the awakening of the asleep princess of the Kundalini The verb is intimately related with the four elements of Nature and due to this, the initiates of the ancient temples of mystery were prohibited from talking about the old catastrophes of ancient Arcadia in fear that they would bring them back into existence. The ancient hierophants knew too well that the verb is related to the four elements of Nature, and that talking about a catastrophe is as much as evoking it again. For this reason, the “initiates” never spoke publicly about the archaic cataclysms. A hard word follows us and later falls upon him who pronounced it, like a ray of
vengeance. One does not only fornicate with the sexual act: there is another kind of fornication with
the verb. The improper use of words is also fornication: Fornication with the verb creates astral
larvae and misfortunes. It hurts to see how people abuse the verb and fill the world with
pain. Slander is the worst of all blasphemies. One should achieve in oneself the perfection of the verb and language. One should comprehend the responsibility of the verb. One should learn to use the sexual organ of the verb.…
In this course, we have arrived at the constellation of Taurus. This sign governs the neck and a new struggle between Venus and Mars repeats itself here. Venus governs the thyroid gland and Mars governs the parathyroids. It is an eternal struggle between Venus and Mars. While some glands produce saliva, others dry it. This struggle takes place in all of our organism. Venus is related to Love and Mars to war. The Astrologer should learn how to use the sparkle of the stars.
Do you know of any home where bitterness reigns? Do you want to serve disinterestedly? Do you know of a poor woman abandoned in misery by a suitor? Do you want to help her? Listen to me well, beloved disciple, for I will teach you how to use the sparkle of Venus.
Sit in a comfortable chair. Close your eyes. Set aside all earthly thought from your mind and focus your thought on your Internal Master, praying like this:
“Dear Father, you who art my true Being, I beg you with all my heart and with all my soul, that you penetrate in the “heart temple” of the star of Venus so that you may kneel at the feet of “Uriel” and ask of him the following favor: (One asks for the favor one desires)”.
Then, the disciple mentally salutes the guardian at the right column, will take a deep breath and pronounce the password “Jachin”. Next, he will do the same with the guardian at the left column and pronounces the password: “Boaz”, in other words, first the deep breath, then he will pray to his Internal Master telling him:
“Lord, take the seven steps into the temple to make the petition. My Father, my Lord, my God”.
Once the petition has been made, one asks “Uriel” with one’s whole heart for a choir of Angels to accomplish the work. (Singing, they create).
If the Angel of Venus grants our petition, the choir of Angels, who are his sons and live with him in the temple of the nucleus of the star of Venus, will begin to sing in “sacred language” to do the work we have asked. That is how the army of the word creates by means of the verb.
If any profane observer was to observe the heavens in those instants, he would see the planet Venus shining and glowing in an intensified and rare manner. The observer would simply be amazed on contemplating the original sparkle of Venus in those instants. The indigo-colored hierarchies of the star of Venus gave us the Causal Body or Body of Will. They grant what we ask for, when Karma allows it.
However, if our petition is not granted, then Uriel will show the disciple “the clock of destiny” and, in this case, we have no other option but to bow down our head before the verdict of the Law.
In the actual world, there is a great number of schools that try to accomplish these same “miracles” by mental force, without taking into account at all, the approval of the Lords of Destiny. That is simply, pure and legitimate black magic. The christ-mind works well with the law. Black mental waves do not arrive where they are sent because a multitude of aerial “elementals”, that trap and intercept their path, exist in the subtle world. Innumerable forces, which divert or disintegrate destructive mental waves, also exist in space. Therefore, evil waves can only cause harm when the victim does not know how to love nor forgive.
Mental energy is absolutely deficient when it does not work with the energy of the Inner Self. The miracle worker utilizes mental energy, but uniting it with the Inner Self. That is the wise mind. The miracle worker works only with the divine powers of his “Inner Angel” and his christ-mind. The saintly masters of the white brotherhood cooperate with the magician and his christ-mind. The sidereal genii perform their miracles with the ray of justice when the magician officiates on the altar of the “Lion of the Law”.
Let us now enter the exercises of Taurus. During this month, the following exercise is done:
The disciple should sit on a comfortable chair. Close your eyes, remove all thought from your mind, make yourself a little drowsy and then focus your mind inwards, towards the Inner Self, praying like this:
“My Father, now transport yourself to the principal star of Taurus, enter through the
doors of the heart-temple making the salutes which you already know and beg the
sidereal genie and his angels of that star to condescend and come to me, so that they may
“prepare” me and cure my larynx.”
Then, already sleepy, the disciple should imagine seeing light accumulated in his head now descending to his throat, while he pronounces the word: A.O.M. With the vowel “A” he imagines the light descending from his head to his throat; with the vowel “O”, he will imagine the light flooding his throat; and with the vowel “M”, the disciple will exhale the breath as if expiring the refuse that resides in his throat. This mantram is pronounced four times.
I will warn my disciple that the salutes as I have described them when I spoke of Venus, along with the passwords “Jachin” and “Boaz”, apply to all the stars in the sky.
Therefore, the genii of the constellation of Taurus will personally come to awaken the powers of the larynx and if the disciple has any laryngeal illness, he can ask of these genii of Taurus to be cured and they will cure him. The disciple will also be able to take advantage of these powers to heal others.
The disciple should daily vocalize the vowel “E”, like this: EEEEEEEEE…, for one hour.
The vibratory sound of this vowel will awaken the power of the occult ear in him.
The vowel “E” causes the Thyroid gland, which is the center of the magical ear, to vibrate.
The vowel “E” also develops clairvoyance of the mental body in us.
The vowel “E” makes the mental body vibrate and gives us conceptual synthetism and the power to penetrate the Intimate sense of words.

Taurus invites us to Reflection. Let us remember that Mercury stole the Cows of the Sun.
Taurus governs the Creative Larynx.
It is urgent for the Kundalini to flourish in our fecund lips made Verb; it is only in this manner that we can use the Jam fire to enter the Kingdom of the Jinas.
In this period of Taurus we should take light to our creative larynx with the purpose of preparing it for the advent of the Fire.
The disciple should sit in a comfortable armchair; he should close his physical eyes in order for nothing of this vain and stubborn world to distract him; he should empty the mind, cast out of his mind all kinds of thoughts, desires, worries, etc. He should now imagine that the Light accumulated during Aries, in his chalice, in his head, moves with Taurus to the creative larynx.
The devotee should sing the mantram A He should open his mouth properly with the A, imagine that the Light descends from the head to the larynx; vocalize the U, vividly imagining that the Light floods the throat; the mouth should be rounded properly to sing the U. The last letter is the M, closing the lips, expelling or casting out the breath with force, as if eliminating the refuse from the throat. This work is done singing the powerful mantram AUM four times.
In the Thyroid Gland which secretes the biological iodine is located the magnetic center of the Magical Ear. With the exercises of Taurus one develops the Magical Ear, the power to hear the cosmic symphonies, the music of the spheres, the Rhythms of the Fire which sustain the seven cosmos in accordance with the law of the octaves.…
In practice we have been able to evince that Taurines should not marry persons of Aquarius because they inevitably fail due to the incompatibility of characters. The sign of Taurus is fixed, an earth sign; it tends towards stability and since the sign of Aquarius is aerial, mobile, revolutionary, it is clear that they are incompatible. Taurines are like oxen, humble and hard. workers, but when they become furious they are terrible like the bull. In their lives, Taurines undergo great amorous deceptions; they are reserved, conservative; they follow step-by-step, like the ox, the outlined path. Taurines are very sensitive. Anger in Taurines is of slow growth and customarily culminates in strong volcanic outbursts. The mediocre type of Taurus is customarily very egotistical, gluttonous, quarrelsome, passionate, irate and proud.…
The superior type of Taurus is full of Love, loves classical music, wisdom, works happily for humanity, is very intelligent, comprehensive, faithful, sincere in friendship, a good Father, Mother, good friend, good brother, good citizen, etc.
