When this loving planet enters the earthy sign of Taurus, we are reminded of just how beautiful this world can be. Venus’s presence in this patient zodiac sign signals a time of simplifying complexities, getting down to fundamentals, and rebuilding relationships from the ground up. This is an ideal time to bring love and money issues out into the open so they can be dealt with directly and easily.
Dating is delightful when Venus is in Taurus! It encourages us to slow down, live in the moment, and find ways to enjoy the company of someone special. Maybe you and your sweetheart will cuddle up and watch a great movie, open a good bottle of wine, or feast on something delicious. This is the time when you’ll both be in the mood to indulge your senses.
Taurus is a security-oriented sign that seeks stability over torrid passion. That means when this planet and sign get together, we’re more drawn to commitment than quick affairs or casual dating. If you want a relationship, or if you’ve had your eye on someone for a while, this could be the time when you two decide to take things to the next level.
There’s a possibility that our partnerships could get bogged down by the infamous stubbornness Taurus is known for when Venus is in Taurus. This is one drawback of this cosmic coupling that everyone should be mindful of. If you’re in a relationship, or on track toward commitment, this might be a time when it’s more difficult for the two of you to move forward as a couple. Compromise can be difficult when you’re dealing with the Bull! If you’re single, this is a time when you’ll feel some internal resistance to opening yourself up and letting in someone new. Remember: A little bit of flexibility can go a long way.
Taurus is a sign that likes things steady and stable, and isn’t the best at handling big, sudden changes. But big, sudden changes are what Uranus is all about! Taurus would prefer to stick to the status quo and keep doing things the way they’ve always been done. The problem is, the old ways aren’t always the best ways. Even if we are resistant to the changes Uranus in Taurus brings, we have no choice but to go along for the ride, and, chances are, we’ll realize in the end that these changes brought us to a much better place.
Money is Taurus’ main area of expertise, so while Uranus is in Taurus, we can expect some very revolutionary ways of handling and dealing with money, both nationwide and worldwide. During the seven years Uranus will spend in Taurus, brand-new forms of currency may arise, banks and banking could come to a halt or change dramatically, and the housing and stock markets may be in for a major shake-up.
On a more personal level, Uranus in Taurus encourages us to break free from the grips of money: debt, taxes, credit card interest, rent, and mortgages are all things that can prevent us from saving money or using it the way we want to. We may also feel trapped by our material possessions in general. During this transit, we must be ready and willing to change our relationship to money and materialism.We no longer have a choice. Uranus is here to liberate us, and digging in our heels and resisting won’t make things any easier, and won’t stop these changes from happening. The changes we make during this period can actually help bring us to a point of greater stability, and can be very long-lasting.
