Venus, the ruler of Taurus, will be coming home to Taurus on May 15, 2019 at 5:45 am ET.
Fresh from Venus in Aries, Venus brings with her a lot of love, a lot of self worth and in Taurus helps us to see just how beautiful the material world is. This is treehugger territory.
Taurus is the first earth sign of the zodiac and strongly associated with nature. Venus in Taurus brings all of us back down to earth. Now that it is spring the buds and flower blossoms are ready to present themselves in all their glory and beauty. The earth is a bountiful place, it is where abundance is revealed to us again and again. Nature is where we see the real wealth of life. All the elements work together, earth, air, fire and water to bring us the sustenance of life, nourishment and all the beauty around us. This is a time for gratitude and respect for all that is available to you.
In all that you do, this is a time to be present and slow down a bit to enjoy smelling the flowers. Studies have also shown that looking outside at lush scenery is helpful for calming the mind and body of tension. Birdwatching can bring up greater reverence for life now.
In all of nature we know there is a lot of love. The beauty, the creativity, the artistry found throughout the natural world is incredible and awe-inspiring. There is so much to be grateful for all around us. This is a great time to decorate your home with more houseplants and flowers to bring that lush, life force energy into your space. Getting your hands dirty in the soil is a beautiful thing. It is the experience of the fives senses that Venus in Taurus loves most.
It is the experience of life, the Sun warming your skin, the fragrance of a flower, the fruits of the earth growing, preparing to be eaten and enjoyed for all their sweetness, nourishment and energy is where the real wealth of life is found. It is the time we have in the material world and what we can do and experience while we’re here that is so precious and meaningful.
Of course, money is associated with the earth and Taurus. We live in a world where money has become the primary focus of how a majority of us relate to and value the material world. Everything can have a price placed on it, and it usually does. With Taurus it is the work and effort to create that dominates, money is simply a means of quantifying the work. Taurus knows it is that which the material world provides and what we do with it that matters most.
With Venus in Taurus, it is a good time to ask yourself, “What is my real motivation in doing the work that I do and does that motivation satisfy the vision I have for my life?”
Whenever you are working, are you putting love into what you do? Do you do it with joy and reverence? Are you doing what you would really love to do? Or, are you doing the work you do mainly for the dollars and cents?
This brings into question, how much do you believe your skills, talents and abilities are worth? Are you living up to your potential? How do you envision your life as being truly wealthy?
It has been said countless times that when you do what you love, the money will follow. This is because when you deeply interested in something and your goals go beyond money itself, then you tend to be more creative, driven and excited about what you are creating and contributing to the world. With an attitude of thriving at being you and doing what you love, more joy and pleasure is created and it shows. That positive attitude builds on itself and opens doors.
This is an optimal time for artists and creative types to get out in nature to experience the colors, textures, fragrances, sounds, and flavors the world offers for great inspiration.
Foods are likely to be more delectable and enticing now. The act of working with textures, colors and scents makes cooking and preparing visually beautiful and delicious foods the perfect practice for Venus in Taurus. Appreciation for all your senses, especially enjoying natural surroundings, scents, and flavors of natural foods and fragrances of fruits, vegetables is highlighted. Go organic whenever possible, and do your body good.
Wearing more earthy jewelry and natural stones is well suited to Venus in Taurus, but anything that makes you feel most beautiful is well suited. Singing is especially recommended as well.
Get a massage therapy treatment, a beauty treatment or do physical movement through more passive and slow moving activities like graceful dancing, tai chi or yoga can be so helpful in helping you get grounded in your body and more in touch with the pleasures of the material world.
Venus will be in Taurus until June 8, 2019 at 9:36 pm ET.
