Venus, the planet of love and luxury, has just about worn itself out after twirling through Aries for the past few weeks! Venus is the ruler of Libra, so when it’s in the opposite sign (Aries), it can’t function at its very best. Venus is in much better shape on May 15, however, when it enters its other favorite sign—Taurus! On top of ruling Libra, Venus is also Taurus’ planetary bestie, so in the fixed earth sign, it feels better than ever. This fertile energy wants to help your relationships blossom and glow up, and benefits the earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn the most!
Generally speaking, Venus helps everyone form stronger relationships and cooperate better, something that wasn’t easily done with the hotheaded, pushy energy it had while in Aries. In Taurus, however, Venus is right at home. Taurus is a relaxed and receptive sign, encouraging you to be choosier when it comes to how you spend your time (and who you spend it with.) You take your sweet time deciding if you’re actually interested in someone, because during Venus in Taurus, you don’t want dating or sex unless it’s the truly best of the best. But when you do find someone who meets your expectations, you do whatever it takes to catch their eye—you see them, like them, want them, and Venus in Taurus’ determined attitude helps you pursue them!
This placement of the planet of love doesn’t embody the more complex, romantic side of relationships (that’s territory of Venus’ other fave sign, Libra), but instead focuses on the physical side of relationships. Out of all the signs, Taurus is the most sensual by far—sensual as in experiencing life through all the senses, not just sex. Playing your boo’s favorite song in the car for them brightens up their entire day, buying them flowers delights them, and something as simple as holding their hand or a kiss on the cheek feels enchanting! Physical intimacy and little gifts like these are tangible acts of affection, which is what matters most throughout Venus in Taurus—and this obviously makes things in the bedroom much more thrilling, too! Venus in Taurus’ erotic, tactile style of loving means you feel way more connected during sex now, making even casual hookups feel unforgettably good.
Since Venus is what astrologers call a benefic planet, its main goal is to attract love, joy, and satisfaction—all of the good stuff in life—especially when it’s placed in its favorite sign! There are a few things to look out for, though. Venus inspires more lux livin' when in Taurus, and can definitely turn you into a total hedonist! Telling the girl at Sephora you’re “just looking” is a thing of the past now—you’re much more likely to buy 17 face masks you don't need so you can get that free sample. Self-care is important, but during this time, you might actually find a way to overdo the treating-yourself until your savings account pushes you to open a new credit card and self-care to forget your lack of $$. Aka, be CAREFUL.
But, when proceeded with caution, this is the break that you need from the daily rise and grind! Taurus season still helps you take care of work, meet deadlines, and reorganize your life, but on your off days, you can spoil yourself with Venus in Taurus’ help! Major relationship developments slow down (though you’re still getting pleeeenty of action with this sexy Venus placement) and you can solidify the connections that matter most to you. Taurus is the zodiac’s kween of minding your GD business, so the drama of everyday life with friends, partners, and work settles down, too. Everybody needs to be pampered every now and then, and Venus in Taurus is here until June 8 to make sure these three weeks are all about feelin’ yourself!
