Venus the planet that rules over our sensuality, pleasure, and often finances or money is about to finally shift out of fast-moving Aries and into the more relaxed energy of Taurus! Venus is Taurus’s ruling planet as well. This energy affects all of the signs of the Zodiac by the way.
The planet Venus has been in the fast-moving sign of Aries for the last 4 weeks, which just doesn’t mix so well with more slow-moving Venus. (Venus is Taurus’s ruling planet), so it’s been a constant state of push and pull over the last several weeks with Venus in Aries. Now that Venus is moved into Taurus we can experience a more peaceful, serene kind of energy that hopefully will help us feel more grounded again, and it’s just more natural to follow our instincts and take our time in our relationships and around our finances.
Venus in Taurus is a content and possessive placement, so we are able to show how we feel more so, but also we can share our feelings a little too much. We tend to be more affectionate, constant, loyal, and faithful under this most romantic time. We are looking for security and what is comfortable as we value that which lasts in our relationships more so now and around our financial endeavors. Our appetite for pleasure is strong, as the energy of Taurus is all about pleasing one’s sense anyhow, so we seem to enjoy what feeds our senses even more so under this influence. We are rather sensual and seek to attract rather than pursue the love we are focused on. It’s more important to experience something real and tangible now and an actual physical expression of love and romance, rather than a fantasy or idea of what it should be or feel like.
The shadow side of this influence is the excessive possessiveness we tend to carry for those we love and care for under Venus in Taurus, our emotional well-being is largely dependent on if we have security that comes from a more stable relationship and secure life. Hence why we can be very possessive in this energy, as we tend to hold on to someone we love stronger than usual and can end up treating our partners, friends, or family members like objects that we own or want to own.
On the financial side of Venus in Taurus, money and material possessions become quite important, as we seek out higher quality, solid, and practical things, as we look again for what will last for the long-term in anything we value. Holding on to possessions is also more likely now.
This is a good energy to work on making your home and surroundings more beautiful, you can add a touch of luxury somewhere to your life now. So get to work on that because we all need a little luxury in our life!
