Presiding over newly-plowed fields, the sun warm on his back, the imperturbable Bull is the Prince of Disks or Knight of Pentacles. The airy part of Earth, he applies his methodical intellect and mechanical genius to problems of the land. The final decan of Aries and the first two decans of Taurus are his: Completion, Worry, Success. He is the slow and tender lover of the earth, which yields to his concerned touch.
In our conversation we discuss: fixed earth, Beltane, bulls and oxen, Mithras, Aldebaran the royal watcher of the East, the Emperor, the Hierophant, beauty in the material world, the black horse of the soil, arugula headgear, hexagram 53 (jiàn, 'gradual development'), globules of nitrogen, seed pods, sowing copper and reaping gold, GPS orbs, upcycling, patience, stubbornness, the geomantic figure Amissio, Crowley and the Black Lodge, and a mind inclined to practical pursuits.
He is the stay-at-home knight, the comfortable knight, so in his honor, we are offering a cozy comfy Fortune's Wheelhouse throw pillow from our RedBubble store. It's perfect for those long days you gotta spend taking care of business from your plowhorse saddle, or your tractor….or your couch.
