Venus is passing through Taurus
May 28 – June 23, 2022
Venus is in Taurus, her natural domain. Taurus is an Earth sign, and she revels in its sensuality. She visits it in the spring when Mother Nature dons her lush, flower-covered wedding gown. The birds serenade at the top of their voices, giving their best performance. Everything is tender, exuberant, and ready for a fresh start.
Venus in Taurus loves nature. She delights in every burgeoning bud, every flower, and in every spring shower. All this revelry is exhilarating, and it is tempting to follow the lure into the green groves.
In Taurus, Venus just wants to have fun and enjoy the season’s glory. She knows it won’t last, so she makes the most of it, while she can.
Some people think of it as laziness. But for her, it is just a matter of priorities. Total immersion in the realm of the senses is very instructional, even if it isn’t very goal-orientated.
Nature teaches us via the faculties of sensory perception, and we process the information by association.
Artists, musicians, poets, and cooks are finely tuned to picking up the sensory signals of our surroundings. Venus in Taurus makes this mode of perception more accessible for everyone. All we need to do is listen to our hearts and open our minds to the signals of the senses.
But beware! The first planet Venus bumps into on her trip through Taurus is Uranus. Be prepared for an unexpected surprise. It may be no more dramatic than a pleasantly disruptive surprise. On the other hand, one of Cupid’s errand arrows may come flying out of the blue, causing havoc where it lands.
