Venus in Taurus Dates
Venus officially enters Taurus on March 16th, 2023. Let’s talk about what that means.
Venus is a planet of beauty, truth, and love and feels right at home with the sensual, soft, and grounded Earth sign Taurus.
Venus helps us attract love and abundance, two things that go together to create a feast for the senses. Naturally, Venus is finely attuned to our sensory system, and she wants us to enjoy the gorgeous sights, delightful fragrances, delicious tastes, and loving touches that make life so grand!
On the other hand is Taurus, a Fixed Earth sign with a love of luxury and the gift of common sense. While Taurus is realistic and sensible, this sign approaches the world with eyes of wonder and wants to soak in every tactile, beautiful experience that life has to offer.
And most importantly, it happens to be ruled by Venus.
When you bring Venus into the realm of Taurus, you get a beautiful balance between sensuality and practicality — energy that allows you to appreciate romance and abundance from a grounded place.

Venus in Taurus Themes
Whenever a planet is in its home sign, like Venus is in Taurus, that planet is generally more comfortable than it is when it is visiting any other zodiac sign.
So Venus is really working some magic under this transit! Let’s find out what that looks like.

- Life looks a lot more beautiful. When it comes to the home or even your sense of style, it’s a great time to set up and appreciate the aesthetic value in the physical world around you. With this transit, we can enjoy the beauty all around us as we slow down to truly see it.
Now that we know a bit more about this sensuous transit let’s look at how it will affect your unique sign!

Embrace the Love
Although Scorpio is opposite to Taurus, there’s still some common ground with Venus in Taurus that you can appreciate. You’re an intense, passionate, and thoughtful lover — something that you share with Taurus.
After all, Venus is really pumped to sprinkle some joy on your love life, but you do have to be open to receiving it in a more grounded way than Scorpios typically do.
If you’re single, get out there and mingle! Connections that you make right now are far more likely to have a deeper meaning to them, thanks to Taurus’ practical energy. These connections are likely to be long-lasting, so put yourself out there!
If you’re in a relationship, this influence may infuse your union with harmony and affection. There is a sense of security that helps you feel more comfortable and willing to share yourself with your partner, which can be a breath of relief as you sometimes tend to stress about the small stuff or have jealous tendencies.
With Venus in Taurus, however, you may finally strike the balance you’ve been looking for.
Share Your Gifts
Bold and spontaneous Sagittarian spirits may have to adapt a bit to the grounded energy of Taurus.
Still, if you can embrace it, a sense of stability from Taurus gives you more confidence and security in your own skin, making this a great time to share yourself with those around you. Don’t keep your creativity and your talent to yourself!
Get out there and show them what you’re made of.
If you’re single, this is a great time to go out into the world and see what kind of people you attract. You may make new, lasting friendships right now… or you might run into the love of your life. With your adventurous heart and Venus in Taurus kindly shining upon you, the odds are in your favor.
If you’re in a relationship, this influence will inspire you both to put more effort into. You both want to build a solid foundation, and this Taurus allows you to begin the project. Working together to solve problems and tackle emotional issues will strengthen your bond.
Follow Your Bliss
It’s time to relax and have some fun, Capricorn!
Venus encourages you to enjoy yourself and splurge a little. But you can rest assured that Taurus keeps you grounded and won’t let you go overboard. Embrace this energy, get out there, and have a little fun!
If you’re single, this is a great influence to spend some time exploring your hobbies and doing the things you love. Enjoy the freedom that you have to do what excites or intrigues you. Take an art class that you’ve always been interested in, or join a book club!

Home & Hearth
This influence brings a pleasant sense of grounding for an Air sign like you, Aquarius.
It’s time to put your plans into action — to fortify the existing opportunities surrounding you and to interact with people that bring you peace and stability. Venus wants to shower you with abundance, and Taurus gives you the energy to go after what you want.
This energy will benefit you greatly if you’re single, allowing you to align with like-minded spirits who have the same values as you. As you are typically already a fairly friendly sign, you’ll be able now to combine this friendliness with the Venus in Taurus tendency to escalate those connections to a deeper level.
So, on the other hand, if you’re in a relationship, it’s time to get affectionate. Embrace this rare affectionate energy that has taken over, and pour your love out to your partner. Making your feelings known will bring you closer together!
Pour Your Heart Out
It is crucial that you communicate during this influence, Pisces.
If you neglect to share your feelings, you may end up feeling frustrated or resentful of others. Venus encourages you to be open and honest with the people in your life and trust that they will receive your words with compassion and empathy, even if you sometimes might hesitate to let the more vulnerable side of yourself show.
If you’re single, this is the ideal time to meet new people: potential love connections. Taurus will ensure that you’re attracted to people who will bring positivity into your life. Still, the key here is that you’re willing to open up.
If you’re coupled up, this influence urges you to share your thoughts and deepest desires with your partner. Being open about what you want allows them to fulfill those wishes — and it brings you closer together.
