Building on yesterday’s Venus/Mars connection, Venus moves into Taurus which harmonizes with Mars’ same-day ingress into Cancer. While they won’t be making an exact aspect any more, they are still close enough to play nice with each other until May 18th.
Venus is strong in the sign she rules, which means solid, physical evidence of what you want/love. Values, money and relationships are expressed through subjective survival instincts and a “what’s in it for me?” approach. This transit can help you determine what has genuine value and how you can treat yourself on a tangible level. Selfish can be good when you look out for yourself and tune into what /who really makes you happy and secure. “Secure” is the key word - Venus in Taurus has no time for anything that’s unsafe or unproven. And, it must have growth potential - this is a fertile sign.
The “not quite” sextile to Mars in Cancer suggests that nurturing actions will enable personal growth, necessary indulgence and a recognition of what you really want. Venus in Taurus is one of the most sensual tranists, and it doesn’t have to be complicated. Focus on what feels/smells/tastes good without questioning it. If you like it and no one else does, who cares? This transit is about what makes you happy on a tangible level. Can you get more of it? Even better.
Having said this, Venus’ conjunction with Uranus will have some surprises - more on that in the daily post or you can read my Patreon post about this yearly conjunction.
