If you have your Sun in sensual Taurus or alternatively, have Taurus rising you are ruled by the planet of love, luxury and pleasure – Venus! You share your ruler with the sign of Libra but as you are an earth sign and Libra is an air sign, Venus expresses herself very differently in each sign. Your key to making the most of the planet of romance, creativity and worldly desires is to understand these differences and work your Venus in your own individual way! Here’s seven simple hacks to enable you to live the kind of life that this beautiful planet wants to give you.
¶ Understand the link between love and money. Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and the second house which rules money, assets, our talents and our self-worth. Venus rules love too. Understand the link between all of these. Love your money as if it is a person. Dialogue with it. If lack of money is your issue ask yourself if this is a reflection of how you value yourself.
¶ You have the soul task of experiencing life’s journey here and learning through interacting with the material world. Life’s sensual pleasures are your learning tools and for you to explore. You need to ditch any negative associations such as ‘Money is the root of all evil’ and understand that money and the best things in life that you are instinctively drawn towards are soul learning experiences.
¶ Love matters. As you are ruled by Venus then love is a top priority for you – both receiving love and expressing it in turn. However, strangely enough your sign is one of those which can experience extended ‘dry spells’. If this happens do not run around looking for love in all the wrong places. When love is ready it will find you. In the meantime, focus on doing what you love instead.
¶ Cultivate confidence. Strangely enough, although Venus usually gives you good looks, a youthful appearance and a pinch of ‘star quality’ you may in fact be quite shy and retiring. Venus also rules creativity and you could well be drawn to a creative profession but one where you work behind the scenes. Do not sell yourself and your abilities short however. Undervaluing yourself either personally or professionally, will result in your Venus being disempowered.
¶ Don’t dwell in the past. Venus wants us to experience love in the here and now. If you are constantly revisiting the past then you will block your opportunities for new love not just in the present but also in the future. Love and let go and above all, forgive is Venus’s message. Looked at another way by channelling your opposite sign of Scorpio – if you cannot manage to forgive then success is the best revenge!
¶ Schedule love for Venus day! Friday is the day ruled by Venus and she blesses activities that are Venus-ruled on this day. If you can, schedule that first or special date for a Friday. Also creative presentations or any activity such as a job interview where you need to create your very best impression. If romance goes the distance, getting married on a Friday gives the union that extra-special love factor!
¶ Always seek a beautiful solution to any problem. Venus will aid you in coming up with this if you come from the place of believing that all issues, no matter how ugly or unpleasant, can be solved with a beautiful solution. It’s that simple – and that complex all at the same time!
