Venus in Taurus

Taurus Sesons Begins

Rubys Astro Readings
“Sun in Taurus”
April 19 – May 20

For All Zodiac Signs
Happy Birthday to all my Bulls! ‚ôČ ūüéČ

While the Sun’s in Taurus, we may feel more sensual, receptive, stubborn, and determined. This shift causes the energies to slow down, but it can help us to act
practical, grounded, and steady, which can be quite helpful, especially with the upcoming Pluto Retrograde cycle starting to form, which is a time we are often made to face our fears. Isolation might actually feel more comfortable for many of you over the next month or so.

We all have the sign of Taurus in our Astrology “Birth” Charts which affects us directly, and not only is the Sun in Taurus for the next month, but so are Mercury, Venus, and Uranus. This infusion of Taurus energy into our lives via the “Stellium” in Taurus forming now is about integrating tradition with evolution. A “Stellium” of planets in Taurus occurs throughout April and part of May. A Stellium is when there are more than three planets in the same sign, and the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are all in the sign of Taurus currently.

With this overabundance of Taurus energy, we can take some time to relax and simply catch our breath. It’s an opportunity to take a deeper look at the events unfolding in our lives so we can handle complicated situations with some good old-fashioned common sense. These energies encourage us to learn how to defend ourselves, resist temptation and love deeper. Love is sensual and more intimate during this cycle. We can learn to appreciate the physical world and all its beauty.

The Zodiac Sign of Taurus is ruled by the Goddess of Love herself, Venus. For better or worse, love is the most powerful energy there is, after all. So we can be fiercely passionate and emotional during this cycle.

One thing about Taurus energy is we feel a stronger need to be more comfortable than usual. Take some time to set up some space to Zen out, get all comfy and cozy for the next month, and grab a blankie and some fuzzy slippers because this is a lot of extra Taurus energy we will be under. Make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out.

This cycle shows us stability and substance. We’re drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not a whole lot of risk-taking going on.

Under the Sun in Taurus, there’s an opportunity to explore what we truly value and who we can depend on. During the Pandemic, we’ve had some time to do some research. Now we can focus on what matters in our material world while working with our spirituality and beliefs. This lovely energy is supportive and can help us balance our spirit, mind, and body. We can experience what it’s like to manifest our physical reality as the seeds of intention we plant take root. It’s a time of harvest and to reap the rewards that are coming to us. Our determination is strong, but we still need to know we are safe and secure during this time.

Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, and using what’s worked in the past, as we like sticking to what’s familiar. We value the folks who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and honor their friendship and loyalty!

As the Sun moves through the sign of the bull, we have an opportunity to see the beauty in life. We’re more focused on the simple pleasures in life and how to feed our senses, which are aroused and highly activated, so we can have a newfound appreciation for things like food, sex, music and entertainment, beauty, and anything pleasurable! Being more repetitive and open to the things that make us feel fulfilled and alive can help us appreciate life and the world better. It’s a time to pause and stop long enough to “smell the roses” rather than be in a hurry and pass things by. Being isolated doesn’t feel as difficult under this energy, so if you are still being cautious and staying in due to Covid, it actually could be more welcoming.

The shadow side of all this Taurus energy forming is we can be more possessive and controlling, especially with our children and partners. We can be extremely stubborn and bullheaded, so it’s important to be willing to hear other people’s ideas and opinions. Check yourself and be mindful of these issues.

While the Sun is in Taurus, we should be making plans and setting goals, ones that are built to last for the long term. Put away something for a rainy day and the future. It’s not a good time to make life-altering decisions. Just plan for now if you can, as mental Mercury will start to slow down in May, yep, you guessed it, and go into its Retrograde cycle!! But will chat about that later!

Enjoy all the beauty life has to offer while the Sun is in Taurus. Discover something beautiful about your life, and find a new appreciation for those you love. Have a wonderful Taurus Season.

Stay Safe & Be Well

May Monthly Forecast



The month of May might seem to start off a little slow but that’s due to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto’s very strong Retrograde phases, and with Mercury still in the impulsive sign of Aries, we may feel like making decisions but can be confused about what direction to take. One thing these Retrograde planets are doing is giving us grand ideas and inspiration, but our progress has sort of came to a standstill and it can feel like you’re trying to move a brick wall at times. This is a time to wait it out if at all possible, but I’ve learned most folks refuse to go with the flow of the Cosmic energies, unfortunately, so if you must make a major decision of some kind take into consideration this is a time of delays and cutbacks, and there can be many different things¬†that try and stop you from making progress. But this is only temporary folks, we are only in Retrograde Season for the next three and half months.¬†


On May 1st the planets Uranus and Neptune from a somewhat tense semi-square for the last time, but you can feel this all week long. This long-term transit has been in play, off and on since August of 2017. With this aspect, we have been seeking inspiration in one way or as this connection grows stronger and forms once again, we might feel restless if our dreams are not coming together in a way we like or want, so we might need to make some sort of big change. We can easily deceive ourselves in some way or others believing we are going to get something that we just can not have at this time, as we can go on some sort of tangent and act on a whim. But only to realize after this influence breaks apart that it wasn’t going to stay together in the first place. In the weeks ahead with Mercury separating from Uranus by just one degree, our progressive ideas and inspired thoughts can start to come together.


A New Moon occurs on the 4th in the sign of Taurus, and we are more motivated to take charge of things, but we must be practical and use common sense to achieve what we want, especially if it has anything to do with making ourselves feel more safe or secure in some way. This is a good energy to think about your relationship with money and your possessions, and to learn what it is we truly value and what genuinely makes us feel more happy and content with life. We should be focusing on what it is we can do to increase our own feelings of self-worth, and how to make our lives more simple. This is also a great time to reconnect with the outside world, so with nature and our bodies, and to our senses, for example, what makes us feel good, like food, music, and sexual activity. Under this lunation, we can feel a sense of purpose and like we are on a mission, as we are ready to take on projects that bring personal pleasure. This is a manifesting New Moon under the sign of Taurus, so we should make sure to take some time to Set Intentions with the cosmos and write out our wish lists about what kind of energy and events we would like to see unfold next in our lives! What paths do you want to head down next? What would bring you the most pleasure?


Mercury makes a shift on May 6 into the sign of much more slowed-down Taurus, as it moves out of the fast-moving sign of Aries, so we can see big changes. This energy slows our thinking process and the way we communicate down a notch, as we enjoy living in the present moment and savoring all that is pleasurable and beautiful. Over the next month, our way thinking is more practical, and we now see our inspired ideas come alive and make a difference in the physical world. 


Venus is in Taurus from May 15-June 8 2019.Venus while in the sign of sensual and natural Taurus, can have us feeling more content but also possessive when it comes to love. We seek and value not only what’s been tried and true in the past in our relationships, but what will last and has staying power. Our desire for anything pleasurable it super strong, including our appetite, so lots of folks will be eating up their emotions! Under this Taurus energy, we are more focused on the here and now, or the present moment, as we want to explore what makes our senses come alive! With Venus in the sign of Taurus, we tend to show our love through physical expressions, and romance is very important to us now. We can get a little overbearing with the object of our affection and hold on tightly to someone we love, but we should be careful not to smother them. The shadow side of this excessiveness is we can treat our partners like objects that we own or just want to have around. And since Venus often rules over our finances or money, as well, we do look for a business to be practical and solid, but also want to only buy what is considered to be of higher quality (often what we cannot afford.)¬†Holding on to our possessions is more likely now.


Mars is in Cancer from May 15-July 1 2019.¬†Mars carefully sidesteps through the sensitive, complicated waters of Cancer in May.¬† Mars is the planet of war and strategy, it rules over our physical actions and our passions. We will pursue our goals consistently, but we avoid a direct approach and go after these things in our own way and in our own time. We are less likely to move forward towards our desires and goals with Mars in the sign of Cancer. It is very important that we meet goals and plans, but we can end up diving into our own insecurities, vulnerabilities, hidden agendas, and old emotional wounds. We can learn how to use some self-nurturing tactics along the way. It may be difficult to control our temperament because our mood swings dictate how we do things or when we do them. We’re not overly aggressive but more defensive, as keeping our security is a priority! Therefore, we can be more cautious and conservative in this energy, but we will “Fight” for or on the behalf of those that are near and dear to our hearts.


The Full Moon occurs on May 18 in the sign of Scorpio. This Full Moon can make us feel totally restless. This energy has already been making some of you feel a little nervous over the past week or so, it can make us feel like something is wrong or about to happen. As with any Full Moon, we can feel pushed and pulled on under the Sun and Moon in their tense connection in two opposing signs, and this time around it’s between the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio. Luckily, this Full Moon is making harmonious connections to Pluto and Saturn which means we just might have exactly what we need to make some sort of change. This Full Moon energy has us digging deeply, it’s a time of transformation, strategy, love, and generosity, with no space for those who are being false. At its worst, this Scorpio energy can also cause issues with control, manipulation, jealousy, obsession, vengeance, deceit, paranoia, and we can feel overly suspicious. This Full Moon is a strong reminder that we need to think about those who are good to us and appreciate the folks who help with their love and support. We need to listen to others needs, wants, and opinions. This is a time of endings and rebirth.


Happy Gemini Season! On May 20, the Sun slips into more easier going Gemini, so our relationships may move beyond what is false or superficial, and we may just want to make a long-lasting commitment of some kind. A lot of folks tend to get engaged and married during Gemini Season for a reason. Any long-term investments you have been thinking of or planning out can be made now and that includes your relationships. This is a time when we enjoy meeting and schmoozing with others, as we can have all those wonderful brilliant conversations that are quite intellectually stimulating. This actually is a time to collect information and save it for later, you never know how valuable it might become.


A time for Healing! There are two rather nice influences for healing that come together on the 21 and 22, but can affect us weeks before these dates.

On the 21, powerful Pluto and Chiron, the wounded healer and teacher align, and this allows our creativity to flow strong, we are more clever when it comes to solving mysteries in our lives and for both ourselves and others, and when figuring out problems, particularly those issues that may have been holding us back in some way from our destined path in life, towards personal growth and development. Overall, this energy can help us see past human flaws and evolve for a higher purpose, which is about forgiveness and healing.

On the 22nd, dreamy Neptune forms a lovely trine connection with the destined North Node of the Moon, this is a beautiful time and an opportunity to get in touch with your intuition. This helps us trust ourselves to be on the right path toward our own personal improvement, growth, and enlightenment. But his is also a good time to release any negative energies that are holding us back from growing. During this time it might be easier to let go of matters that have caused us pain or frustrations. This is a wonderful few days to meet with others who support our same values, and some of them might even help us see our own potential more clearly.


Have a good and happy May, if you need help or guidance, or just some insight please contact me Ruby here.

VENUS ENTERS TAURUS

VENUS ENTERS TAURUS
March 31st РApril 24th

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!
