Venus in Taurus

So anyways, Venus moves into Taurus today.

Venus is about the things that make us feel good, and Taurus is all about the senses. Being an earth sign, it’s also about the pleasure that security, abundance and wealth can bring. We’re not just talking about financial wealth here- although, obviously, that’s a large part of it. It’s also the wealth and abundance of nature- the beauty that’s all around us.

It’s about taking the time to appreciate that. It’s about slowing down to smell the roses. It’s about savouring tastes and fragrances and textures. It’s about stopping to listen to a beautiful piece of music, to gaze at art, to take the time to prepare a beautiful meal. It’s about the beauty in nature.

When it comes to love, it’s a little like a Kylie Minogue song- taking it slow, like chocolate and reading body language. It’s about taking your time, and wining and dining your partner. It’s walks in the outdoors, it’s thoughtfully prepared picnics, it’s the power of touch.

Obviously there’s more- much more…but I’ve said it before…here.

Doing it for yourself…

We all have Taurus somewhere in our chart, and it’s this part of life that Venus will be bestowing her presence on. It’s this part of life that you’ll find pleasure in. It’s this area of life that you might want to take your time in.

In my chart, Venus in Taurus is transiting the 3rd house. I’ll be taking pleasure in getting to know my “neighbourhood”, in the ritual of my routines, in little things like talking to the people that I see every day.

If you don’t have your chart, read this post on how to get one.

If you don’t know what the houses mean, check out series 1 of the Toolbox or this post.

If you don’t have any idea about your birth time, or can’t be faffed working it out, you can follow the solar guide. Obviously, if you know where Taurus is in your chart, go straight to that house:
