TAURUS - "I HAVE THEREFORE I AM."
Venus moves into Taurus on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 12:54 AM EDT until Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 12:40 PM EDT.
Venus transits a Sun Sign right at about every 30 days and sometimes up to 60 days depending on its motion, meaning if it involves a Retrograde. This Venus transit 'does not' involve a Retrograde.
The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Venus reveals how we like to relate to our environment and other people. Venus also shows how you express your emotions in personal relationships, especially where marriage and Love are concerned. Venus will reveal if we are attracted to strong, sensual and intense relationships or if we prefer freedom and independence. It also indicates what we value, and therefore is linked with money, personal possessions, resources, creature comforts, aesthetic, social values and morals. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Here is a nice little piece of Venus trivia for you. Venus will never be more than two Sun Signs away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Taurus, will have their Venus within 2 Sun Signs on either side of Aries or it will be in the sign of Taurus. This means there are five possibilities that a Taurus Sun Sign individual might have their Venus -- Venus in Pisces, Venus in Aries, Venus in Taurus, Venus in Gemini or Venus in Cancer. This helps you guess someone's Venus even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can rule out Venus in the opposite sign (Scorpio) or the three signs on each side Scorpio (Leo, Virgo, Libra) and (Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius). Cool huh?
Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus also rules our self-worth, personal finances, earned income, morals and values. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for something or someone. So when you think of Venus in your Natal Chart or Solar Return think "Love of" whatever sign is involved.
First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Taurus. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your Natal Chart or Solar Return think "Love of" whatever sign is involved.
In this case, Venus is in the sign of Taurus, whose motto is "I have therefore I am," which translates into, "I have what you need, come and get me." Where Venus is Aries chases Love like a teenage girl chasing a boy and writing his name all over everything, Venus in Taurus seeks to attract Love rather than pursue it. Venus in Taurus has the Goods so they certainly don't need to pursue Love, instead they are the attractor. In fact, Venus is in its Home placement when in the sign of Taurus because it is the natural ruler of both Taurus and Libra. Venus is most comfortable in these signs.
Those with Venus in Taurus in their Natal Chart or Solar Return can usually expect a relationship to come bearing gifts. In other words, they will want their partner to give them trinkets of affection, preferably shiney and solid gold, although platinum would be better. Venus in Taurus really enjoys beautiful surroundings so you might find yourself beautifying your space and making it more luxurious and romantic. Women may be more attracted to lingerie, perfume and other items that will stimulate romance and attraction. Men may be drinking more wine and parting their hair differently. If we didn't know better during this transit, we might be thinking that everyone is in hot pursuit of having an affair but for the most part, these actions are going to be simply be for attracting the object or person of one's desire, which could easily be the relationship they are currently in. This placement let's the pheromones fly. Remember, Venus in Taurus is the attractor, not the pursuer.
Since beautiful objects and beautiful surroundings are important to Venus in Taurus, this makes money important because it takes money to have these beautiful things. Even if a person does not have the money, they are strongly attracted to the person who does have the money to provide these things. I see this as a gift, not as someone who uses someone else to gain material possessions. It is the placement they have in their chart and it should be played out with integrity. What a gift huh? And speaking of gifts . . when someone with Venus in Taurus is given a gift, to them this means the other person really likes or Love them. It's even better if the gift is shiney, gold, has sheen or sparkle to it. The more expensive the better. Even a card with sparkles on it will do the trick. Coins are also a sign of Venus in Taurus.
Even though Venus naturally rules both Taurus and Libra, the way a Venus in Taurus dresses and the way a Venus in Libra dresses are markedly different. The Venus in Taurus will be wearing something very expensive. Even if they cannot afford designer clothes, they will still have on something that is very expensive such as a $200 scarf, Chanel perfume or a designer belt. That one accessory will make all the difference in the world. The Venus in Libra will be able to go into any second hand shop and make a $4 outfit look like $400 designer couture. Venus in Taurus will spend the big money, most of the the Venus in Libra will not. Venus in Taurus will usually try a bit harder on beautifying themselves more than a Venus in Libra will, although they certainly do not need to. Good looks come naturally with either placement.
Venus in Taurus will spend their money on expensive purchases simply because of quality, durability and longevity. Taurus is all about quality and wouldn't be caught dead in wearing designer fakes. Not in a million years because who knows (some like me who could spot a fake at 100 yards) might notice and it would be embarrassing for them.
Many artists, designers, decorators and sculptors have this Venus in Taurus placement. Since this placement enjoys aesthetics and expensive things, then they will likely engage in business or investment that has to do with these things. Many of those with Venus in Taurus will be artsy in this way as well.
Taurus naturally rules the throat and vocal cords of the melodious cow. Moooooooooooo! Since Venus naturally rules Taurus then you can see why the cow is so musically inclined. It would be tough to find a Taurus who cannot sing or who does not sing because of this natural gift. Beauty, grace and refinement follows this placement. There will be a heightened attraction to music and singing during this time.
Remember to look at your Natal Chart or Solar Return to see where Taurus is so you can see how this Venus in Taurus will show up for you personally rather than as an entire sign. Stay Astrologized™.
