Venus Enters Taurus on Libra Full Moon 3/31/18

Venus has entered Taurus today – I know, I know. I’m late! The bull is patient though so I don’t think it’ll mind. Venus will stay in Taurus until April 24th, 2018.

This particular transit is important because it’s happening at the same time as the Libra full moon. Venus rules both signs, Libra and Taurus, highlighting Venusian energy during this time.

Concepts surrounding love, beauty, attraction, relationships, self-confidence, and values are at the forefront. Check out where Libra & Taurus sit in your chart (house cusps and any house they might blend into) and those areas are the ones most likely affected by these concepts.

Here’s the Venus in Taurus aspects to look out for throughout April.

Venus Trine Saturn: Desire to solidify relationships, ending of trivial relationships, a realistic approach to beauty and love.
Venus Trine Mars: Sexual compatibility, melding together of complimentary energies. Motivation spikes, eager to please.
Venus Square NN: Love and beauty irritating karmic goals, needing to make adjustments in these departments that may seem uncomfortable but are ultimately geared toward future happiness.
Venus opposition Jupiter Retrograde: Inner turmoil over secrets and relationships, the need to heal rather than repress – can be positive when energies are expressed equally. Look out for favoring one energy over the other and projecting the other energy outward.
Venus Sextile Neptune: Dreamy, lovey feelings – make sure to avoid delusion. But enjoy the deep feel of love, intimacy and connection.
Venus trine Pluto: Depending on how the Venus/Neptune sextile expresses – this can be highly transformational. Love, relationships and beauty may be seen in a different light, changes made to previously outdated points of view, healing of pain associated with these concepts. Avoid jealousy, obsession, and release paranoia.

The Planet reference guide!

Sun is your personality. It’s who you are as a person. Your spirit. Your vitality. What makes you feel fulfilled on a personal level.

Your Ascendant is what others see you as, it’s a mask to the outside world, who you are in social situations. How you project yourself out to others.

Moon represents your emotions. It is your soul. The way you nurture and need to be nurtured. How you filter information internally in regards to your immediate reactions and feelings.

Venus represents how you love. It is what you find beautiful and attractive. What excites your spirit and soothes your soul. How you love and how you recognize and feel love. It is also our divine feminine energy.

Mars is the warrior planet and therefor rules dominance. It is our divine masculine energy. It rules anger and physical reactions. It is how we take action, what makes us take action, and what stirs us. What we find desiring and sexually pleasing.

Pluto is the planet of death and regeneration. It throws constant trials our way in order to teach us lessons. It is the planet of destruction in order to make room for creation. It is a highly internal, primal, and intense energy.

Jupiter is our ‘bigger picture’ of the world. It rules optimism and the future. It is expansive and all inclusive. It’s bursting with excitement, joy, and hope. It rules justice and truth.

Uranus is the trickster planet and likes to throw a wrench in our plans. It is the eccentric genius. It shows us where we differ from the crowd, where we stand independent, and where we get sparks of insight and inspiration for positive progression.

Saturn is the harsh reality- it’s every day life. It’s where we must put in time in order to see results. It’s the tangible world, the daily routine, the strict rules. It restricts. It sets boundaries. It lays down the law.

Neptune is very elusive, ruling over dreams and escapism. It has domain over drugs, fantasy, undercurrents of life, the collective unconscious. It is everything yet it is nothing. It casts a fog wherever it goes. It shows illusions and personal delusions and things that may or may not truly be there.
