During the influence of Taurus, there are numerous exercises to develop ourselves spiritually.
Taurus governs the larynx, which is where the power of the word is centered. With the exercises of Taurus one develops the creative power of the word and the magical ear.
"It hurts to see how people abuse the word and fill their world with pain. Slander is the worst of all blasphemies. One must achieve the perfection of the word and language within oneself. One must comprehend the responsibility of the word... Do you feel the need to learn how to use the word? Listen to me, beloved disciple, we, the members of the sacred College of Initiates, can create anything with thought and materialize it with the word...
"In this period of Taurus, we must take light to our creative larynx with the purpose of preparing it for the advent of the fire. The disciple must sit in a comfortable armchair; he must close his physical eyes in order for nothing of this vain and stubborn world to distract him; he must empty the mind, cast out of his mind all kinds of thoughts, desires, worries, etc. He must now imagine that the light accumulated during Aries, in his chalice, in his head, moves with Taurus towards his creative larynx. The devotee must sing the mantra AUM, he must open his mouth properly with the A, imagining that the light descends from the head to the larynx; then while vocalizing the U, vividly imagine that the light floods the throat. The mouth must 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 mantra AUM four times...
"The disciple must vocalize the vowel “E” daily like this: eheeeeeeee...(as in “beg”), for one hour.
"The vibratory sound of this vowel will awaken the power of the esoteric ear within us.
"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 within us. The vowel “E” makes the mental body vibrate and gives us conceptual synthesis and the power to penetrate into the intimate sense of words." —Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor
