Cultivate Pleasure – You Come First


Taurus, the night-time ruler of Venus , is your pathway to:


• Cultivating Pleasure

• Exploring Eros

• Embodying Self-Love.


You come first. 


Taurus wants you to explore your relationship to your body and our earth.


Taurus teaches us that we, us humans, are not separate from the earth.


Taurus teaches that eros is everywhere. The sensual relationship between your body, the earth and fresh food, grown from the earth’s soil.


Taurus teaches us that we have all the inner resources we need.


Resources of genius, creativity, bravery, courage, communication, wisdom, focus, relation, transformation and regeneration.


Taurus embodies pleasure without excess.


Pleasure is free. Pleasure belongs to you. Pleasure is in you.


Taurus asks: What brings you joy?

Taurus asks: What delights your senses?

“Your capacity for pleasure is a natural part of being human.


You were born with it.

You don’t have to earn it.


Pleasure is about noticing what actually brings you joy and what feels good.


When you know, listen to and follow what genuinely pleases you, you avoid the traps of over-consumption, chasing the wrong thing, and staying in the rat race.


You stop trying to impress other people and start living on your terms.


Life becomes a lot more satisfying, your confidence grows, and knowing what you want becomes second nature.”

adrienne marie brown

Author of ‘Pleasure Activism, The Politics of Feeling Good’. 

“ I believe our imaginations— particularly the parts of our imaginations that hold what we most desire, what brings us pleasure, what makes us scream yes—are where we must seed the future, turn toward justice and liberation, and reprogram ourselves to desire sexually and erotically empowered lives.

“Part of healing is taking care of your body and learning how to have a humane relationship with your body.


I was broken and then I broke some more, and I am not yet healed but I am starting to believe I will be.”


bell hooks about Toni Cade Bambara 

author, documentary filmmaker, social activist and college professor.

“She wanted me to remember that pleasure is political for the capacity to relax and play renews the spirit and makes it possible for us to come to the work of writing clearer, ready for the journey.”

Angela Davis

Author of Women, Race, and Class

“Practicing radical self-care means we’re able to bring our entire selves into the movement.


It means we incorporate into our work as activists ways of acknowledging and hopefully moving beyond trauma.


Anyone interested in making change in the world also has to learn how to take care of herself, himself, theirself.”

Clarissa Pinkola Estés


Poet, Psychoanalyst and Post-trauma Specialist
Author of ‘Women Who Run with the Wolves’.

“The body’s purpose is to protect, contain, support and fire the spirit and soul within it, to be a repository for memory, to fill us with feeling – that is the supreme psychic nourishment.


It is to lift us and propel us, to fill us with feeling to prove that we exist, that we are here, to give us grounding, heft, weight.


It is wrong to think of it as a place we leave in order to soar to the spirit.


The body is the launcher of those experiences.


Without body there would be no sensations of crossing thresholds, there would be no sense of lifting, no sense of height, weightlessness.


All that comes from the body.

The body is the rocket launcher.


In its nose capsule, the soul looks out the window into the mysterious starry night and is dazzled.”

Georgia O’Keeffe


 mother of American modernism

“Dearest – my body is simply crazy with wanting you – If you don’t come tomorrow – I don’t see how I can wait for you – I wonder if your body wants mine the way mine wants yours – the kisses – the hotness – the wetness – all melting together – the being held so tight that it hurts – the strangle and the struggle.”

Choose Your Pleasure Practice


  1. Make Feeling a Priority: Embrace the journey of learning to truly feel—to connect with your body, your emotions, sensations, and desires.

  2. Embrace Touch: Reflect on how frequently you engage with physical touch. How often do you caress your body, offering it the comfort and connection it craves?

  3. Breathe into Pleasure: Explore the depth of sensation and pleasure through conscious breathing.


Take moments to fully immerse yourself in the experience, allowing each inhale and exhale to amplify your sense of joy and fulfilment.


4. Breathe deeply as you orgasm to move the pleasure through your body and expand outwards. 


The Body. Pleasure. Nourishment. Touch. Sensation.


• Daily Pleasure Allocation: Evaluate how much time you allocate each day to activities that bring you joy and fulfilment.

• Prioritise carving out moments for pleasure in your daily routine.

• Identify Pleasure Sources: Reflect on what brings you pleasure. Whether it’s a favourite hobby, spending time with loved ones, immersing yourself in nature or kissing sensuously, identify the sources of joy that enrich your life and make them a priority.
