Your essential purpose in life is to maintain the stability of Earthly things. You can go wrong if you interpret this only to mean having a substantial amount of money and possessions, or being assured of a predictable future in a purely tangible world.
In actual fact, your main possession is your sense of Earthly harmony and wholesomeness. When you truly get in touch with this sense, you need worry no longer about blindly reassuring yourself with external possessions and securities, for you will then know and feel that this sense attracts these very things. Taurus is the great provider.
This is not just in the material sense, but more essentially it is your calm and unruffled vibration, along with a well-vitalized body, that work wonders on the physical and emotional state of others. This could come about through sensuous affection, massage, good living, artistic expression, or just your sheer physical presence that emanates that aura of stability, that feeling that the Earth and Heaven are in their respective and proper places.
However, the other side of your Earthy wisdom and natural docility is inertia or grossness - which is born of a fear of change and all that it could mean to you. When you fall into this state it is only a matter of time before you attract someone or something that will make such immobility uncomfortable and compromising. It is then that a change has to be made, and something must be let go. You then discover how much more stable and rewarding things become as a result.
