Venus In Taurus – A Relationship Reset: March 16 – April 11

As of March 16th, Venus has entered Taurus, its ruling sign. With Venus being the planet of love, values, and romance, we can expect a powerful surge of these energies, as they are heightened and intensified during this transit.

Venus will remain in Taurus until April 11, 2023, and within this period, we may notice our relationships become more steady and dependable as Taurus places high value on stability.

Taurus is associated with manifestation and the ability to turn dreams into reality through hard work, persistence, and determination, making this is an optimum time for setting intentions and taking practical steps to build a solid foundation for long-term success. This can involve focusing on financial stability, as well as nurturing relationships that are based on loyalty, trust, and commitment.

With this shift, we can expect significant changes in the way we experience love, beauty, pleasure, and comfort in our relationships and finances, regardless of our zodiac sign.

Venus has just left impulsive and passionate Aries, so, between February 20, 2023 and now, we may have noticed we were pursuing our desires with a sense of impatience, urgency, and intensity. We may have had a tendency towards impulsive decision-making in our relationships, as well as having a desire for immediate gratification.

Aries is associated with independence and individuality, therefore, over the past few weeks, we may have been more focused on fulfilling our own desires rather than compromising or considering the needs of others. This may have caused tension and conflict, which if left unresolved, could ultimately have led to the end of certain relationships.

With Venus leaving Aries and moving into Taurus, the energy will now shift from a period of assertiveness or impatience, towards a more steady and grounded approach. The focus will now move to building stable and long-lasting relationships of various kinds, and prioritizing comfort, security, and reliability over passion and intensity.

Patience is key when Venus is in Taurus, as we won’t feel compelled to rush into commitments or express our feelings as quickly. We may prefer to move at a slower pace, which doesn’t mean we aren’t passionate about what we feel — we will just have a new appreciation for expressing our emotions in a slower, steadier, and more sensual way.

This shift can help to ground our relationships, as we prioritize our values and become more committed to building love and trust over time. We may place higher importance on long-term relationships and have a stronger desire for honesty, reliability, loyalty, and trustworthiness, as well as seeking a greater level of emotional connection. 

We may become more focused on evaluating whether our relationships align with our values and long-term goals. This can lead us to seek greater security and stability, as we want to ensure that we are investing our time and energy into relationships that have the potential to be long-lasting and fulfilling.

This may cause us to become more cautious and reserved in our approach to love and relationships, and taking the time to consider where we want our relationships to go, particularly when considering potential new partners or deepening existing ones. We may hope to gain reassurance from our partners that they are committed to us and the relationship, and we may also want to feel assured that we share similar values, dreams, and visions for the future.

When Venus is in Taurus, there can be a deeper attachment to people and things that bring us comfort and harmony, which can lead to a resistance to change or new experiences, and make us more inclined to hold onto what we already have, even if it no longer serves us.

We could also notice a stronger attachment to our beliefs, values, and desires, which can lead to stubbornness. This can manifest in a reluctance to adapt or a resistance to new ideas or perspectives, and a tendency to be less forgiving and hold onto grudges or past hurts.

We may also feel threatened by anything that disrupts our sense of security, whether it’s a potential change in our relationships, career, or financial situation. This can make us more hesitant to take risks or step into the unknown, as we might feel more comfortable sticking with what feels familiar and safe.

Venturing into uncharted territory can be scary and uncomfortable, but growth and progress often require us to be fearless and try new things. It’s natural to feel hesitant or cautious, but by reminding ourselves of the potential rewards and focusing on the positive outcomes, we can find the courage to take that first step.

It’s also important to keep in mind that stepping outside of our comfort zone doesn’t necessarily mean taking huge, dramatic risks. It can be as simple as trying a new hobby, reaching out to someone, or learning a new skill. 

Effective communication is crucial when Venus is in Taurus. It’s important to express ourselves clearly and assertively while also being willing to listen to and understand the perspectives of others. It is also important to communicate without becoming defensive or confrontational, and being open to the possibility of compromise.

While Venus is in Taurus we will likely be seeking ways to relax and unwind, to take a break from the busyness of everyday life and recharge our batteries. We may have a desire to indulge in delicious foods and luxurious experiences and want to express our love one with gifts and affection.

During this time we might notice a heightened focus on material comforts, sensuality, and enjoying the pleasures of life. Pampering ourselves with massages, facials, or other forms of self-care can also help us to slow down and connect with our bodies and senses. Other activities that can be beneficial during this transit include cooking, listening to music, indulging in sensual pleasures , and focusing on building financial stability and security.

Taurus is an earth sign, and during the transit of Venus in Taurus, we may find that we feel a greater connection to nature and the earth. Activities like gardening, spending time in nature, or even just walking barefoot on the grass can help us to ground and center our energy.

During Venus in Taurus, it is the perfect time to focus on materializing our dreams and setting intentions for building long-lasting and mutually reciprocated healthy relationships based on values and respect.

To make the most of this transit, it is important to avoid being too stubborn or set in our ways, so we don’t hinder our ability to adapt or consider different perspectives. Being open to change allows us to navigate shifts in our relationships and personal lives and manifest limitless love, success, and abundance with ease.
