Venus and Taurus

While the Sun is in Taurus (April 20-May 21) there is an urge to settle in and connect more fully with the earth and our own nature. This pace is slower and more deliberate. The earth is nourishing the seeds that have taken root. What were once seeds or bulbs or inklings of ideas are now developing enough to reveal evidence of their own nature.

Taurus energy invites us to literally come to our senses. We begin to see, smell, hear, feel, and maybe even taste how that potential is manifesting. For a living thing to have integrity (that is, to be integrated and sound) it must be given time and space and appropriate nurturance to grow healthy and strong. The time of Taurus is rich with all of those elements.

Engaging the Taurean energy supports us in taking a stand and committing to the business at hand. There is a respect for the process of tending to and seeing that which was started through to fruition.

Venus is in charge of beauty and balance, self-esteem and worthiness, value and values, so those born with the Sun or other planets in her sign are prone to express sensuality, body awareness, deliberate action, take pleasure in their possessions and have an appreciation for natural, earthy beauty.

As a fixed sign, Taurus tends to hold on for the purpose of creating stability. Holding on too long hinders one’s ability to be in the flow of life and live in the present. This is a challenge for many with strong Taurus energy in their natal chart.

Taking a deep breath and connecting with one’s heart and inner being in any moment can serve us in remembering our true value lies in expressing our unique perspective and individuality. Our value has never been dependent on how we do or don’t feel or what we do or don’t have.

Taurus represents the journey to experiencing the one who lives in the body and experiences life through the senses. Indulge in the beauty, color, sounds, textures and tastes you love this month and watch your spirit come alive.
