Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters fixed earth sign Taurus, a sign it rules, on Saturday March 31 at 3:53 pm AEDT. Here’s my take on how it may express in those born with this placement.
Appreciation of natural beauty and all the sensual delights of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell is highly developed in those with Venus in Taurus, perhaps the most pleasure loving placement in the zodiac. Musical talent, enjoyment of arts and crafts, and a love of comfort, ease, and the ‘good life’ that money can buy, is also characteristic. Some more down to earth types however, are decidedly anti-materialistic in their values, preferring a relaxed bucolic simplicity to an acquisitive, high maintenance life style. In a relationship, Venus in Taurus is loyal and committed. Sexual compatibility and physical affection are strong needs, as is a sense of harmony, stability and security. Physical attractiveness in a partner is especially prized.
