“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.” ― Alfred Lord Tennyson
Desire blooms as the planet of romance, sugar-sugar and all things lovely comes home to Taurus today. Venus now turns to the material world on a quest for what soothes, teases and beautifies. As one of Venus’ ruled signs, Taurus embodies the essence of our sweet, sensuous planet.
“At 8:38 AM EDT, the Moon in Libra reaches full. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability. The Libra Moon is diplomatic, equality-minded, and fair-minded. The Aries Sun, however, values authenticity over tact and is energized by independent efforts. This morning’s Full Moon illuminates this conflict. Because it aligns with retrograde Mercury and forms a square to Mars and Saturn, feelings can be frustrated now, and we might struggle with expressing ourselves, particularly since we’re also especially aware of our commitments and obligations and we can be guarded.” -Annie Heese
Our appetite for pleasure is stronger than usual.. Everything is foreplay. Hugs, soft kisses, kind gestures…closeness is essential for feeling good now. Those born with this Venus placement (like myself (•◡•)) crave beauty, security and peace and in order to feel happy.
“If there’s something only Venus in Taurus can teach us, is that pleasure and enjoyment are as important as duty and productivity when it comes to our balance and well-being – and that the process of building an authentic, spiritually and materially fulfilling life starts from within.” -Aeterna
Taurus isn’t a sign known for casual hook-ups, they express love and lust in a stirring, mellow way. Taurus is slooow and steady when it comes to relationships and isn’t really known for double dipping.
Holding on tightly to someone we love is our tendency under this transit, though excessive possessiveness is something we should look out for. A fixation with money can also become an obsession while Venus is in the most materialistic sign of the Zodiac.
Venus’ journey in Taurus promises a time of heightened sensuality and greater stability for romantic love, love of the Earth and self-love.
Indulge and savor in Earthy delights, listen to some Sade, watch the sunset and be sure to stop and smell the roses. xx
Happy Venus Return, Taurus!
AND Happy Easter dear readers!!
