The Bee’s Experience

Do not believe everything you hear or are taught. Not everyone who is a beekeeper is an expert, though they may sound like one. Be careful to always take opinions with a grain of salt. When in doubt rely upon proven assays. There is so much wrong information out there, so keep bees based on good information.

Taurus 3: Steps leading up to a lawn blooming in clover

Amber, gold, cloves, clover…

 The first series of Taurus symbols is anything but boring. We start with a clear mountain stream… nicely flowing… then to an electrical storm, the equivalent of a plunging waterfall… then to gradual steps leading up to clover. 

 Just taking these three symbols together indicates quite a ride!

Taurus 3 does suggests a slow gradual path. It is linked with other fixed sign 3rd degree symbols by way of ‘rolling up one’s sleeves and getting to work’. The work may involve healing, convalescence, repair of some kind, or just the gradual process of constructively moving forward. 

Honey, cloves, clover, worker bees, things golden and amber, sweet and uplifting are associated with Taurus 3.

The pedigree of honey
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.
