What Venus in Taurus means for you and your energy

What Venus in Taurus means for you and your energy

It's the first time Venus has passed through Taurus during Taurus season since 2016.

Venus is in Taurus — and honestly, it couldn't have come at a better time.

This astrological phase is all about slowing down, rediscovering the beauty in simple things and luxuriating in a few indulgences. It's a time of sensuality, self-love and peace — and right now, that all sounds pretty great.

If you're anything like us, the beginning of the year hasn't exactly been slow-paced. After a winter of racing around and maybe overdoing it all a little bit, Venus in Taurus is the perfect time to slow down, refill your cup and take stock. It's a chance to indulge in some self-care before all of the socialising of summer is upon us.

We spoke to astrologer Francesca Oddie about what to expect now that Venus is in Taurus.

When is Venus in Taurus?

Venus is officially in Taurus as we speak. This astrological phase is set to last from April 30th until May 24th 2024.

Venus is in Taurus — what does it mean for us?

Making the most of Venus in Taurus

“Astronomically, this refers to the apparent position of Venus in the sky relative to the backdrop of stars that make up the constellation associated with Taurus, ” explains Francesca. "But in tropical astrology, the zodiac signs are not determined by constellations directly, but by the Earth's relationship to the Sun. The zodiac in tropical astrology is aligned with the seasons, starting with Aries at the vernal equinox. Therefore, when Venus is said to be "in Taurus," it means that Venus appears to be in the sector of the sky that is symbolically associated with Taurus in the tropical zodiac system. This system divides the sky into twelve segments of 30 degrees each.

"In astrology, each zodiac sign is believed to influence events and characteristics associated with its period. Taurus is an earth sign known for qualities such as stability, practicality, and love of beauty and comfort. Venus is considered the planet of love, beauty, and values. When Venus is in Taurus, astrologers believe that these qualities are enhanced. Venus is said to be "exalted" in Taurus, meaning its influence is particularly strong and positive in this sign."

Francesca continues: “Venus in Taurus is associated with all the lush things, chocolate, love, nature, spring, trees, great clothes, beauty and love. With Venus in Taurus she is strong, her themes are being highlighted and she’s gracing the portion of our chart that is ruled by Taurus.”

So, how does this affect us? Is there anything we should be aware of or changing when Venus is in Taurus?

Francesca says that this time is all about taking things easy and treating yourself well. "I’d trust what I want to say. I’d leave behind the game players, the people who don’t reply, the half friends and lovers who aren’t really there for you and I’d roll with quality, lush and easy relationships. Don’t complicate your life. Get up early and be impressed by nature," she says.

But remember, Venus in Taurus won't last forever!

“Remember that Uranus is in Taurus and on the 18th of May things could do an about turn!,” she warns. "All the generic things you might read online about Taurus being easy and loyal do shift towards the end of Venus’ transit of Taurus simply because Uranus is there saying “cut it out” and for goodness sake, BE AUTHENTIC!

“Generally, this time is also boosted by Mars being in Aries… the call to simplicity, clear communication and honest interactions is strong! It’s not the time for overthinking and seeking people from the past. It’s a call to move on, manifest embracing the present moment and let the universe show you how many treasures there are.”
