“And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it’s not my fault, it’s how I’m programmed to function”– The Fear lyrics
“You’re no friend of mine girl
And I’ve known it for a while girl…Tell me what did you expect?
Have you got no self-respect?” -Friend of mine lyrics
I remember when I first heard the single “smile” and I loved it. Such a sweet voice and such words behind it. Lily Allen (again a British singer) who became famous overnight through Myspace, is a Taurus. For me she embodies the female Taurus traits perfectly both in her self expression about love and society as well as in her style. Taurus is ruled by Venus and in other words beauty,love and sensuality. And yet Taurus girls are far from being concerned with the soft and tender of the world. Beauty and warmth are in their nature,its is what a Taurus craves and gives others. But this earth sign is also very concerned with stability in the worldly sense but for emotional reasons. They are earthy in terms of answering the personal needs be it money,food or sex. But they like to play it safe which can mean playing by conservative rules to get to their gaols. They don’t act rashly like the Aries and fire energy is not in their nature. A Taurus women is feminine no matter what she wears or even how she acts-her true nature is feminine even if covered by roughness. They make good loyal friends but do tend to always think they are right. A Taurus is never wrong and if they are, it will take time to change an opinion long held. This women know how to hold mind over matter to achieve what they want but underneath are sensitive souls with a practical view of life.
Lily Allen is a Taurus with some strong Gemini in her chart, this probably denotes her with clever words and lyrics as well as lightening her personality a bit. I don’t think I ever came across a more Taurus representing song then “The Fear”. Though the songs mocks wonderfully the world we live in and all material things it also puts an expression to our need and hunger for them. The song is like the sweet evolving Taurus that finds through life more creative and spiritual approaches to answering ones need for possessions of beauty. Its an evolution and yet its a struggle.
