Venus must be in Taurus. I made myself late for an appointment primping in the mirror, trying on three different lip colors before settling on a nude gloss. When Venus comes home to the sign of Taurus, it kind of goes like that.
Venus just spent most of the year so far in the sign of Aries, the home of her lover, Mars. And while she adores Mars, being in his ruling sign of Aries just isn’t that comfortable for Venus. I think of her transit through the sign of Aries as much like that scene in Sex and the City when Carrie told her friends she didn't like spending the night at Aiden's house because “he has weird conditioner, you know?” Venus enjoys getting it on with Mars, but she's going to really let her hair down in her own place.

Venus entered the sign of Taurus on June 4 and will transit through July 5. Venus rules this sign and is very much in her element here.
Practical Venus in Taurus has the knack for beautifying any environment she’s in.
Her garden has flowers AND veggies. She loves DIY dream homes.
Venus in Taurus has a palette for epicurean delights, going full on gourmet chef with the flavored oils and herbed salts.
Venus in Taurus reminds us that if it isn’t pleasurable, it’s not worth it.
Security and harmony are important to Venus in Taurus, and it is the end-goal in all that she does. Venus In Taurus is the coy "girl-next-door." A stunning beauty who attracts through her shyness. This shy flirtatiousness is actually a subconscious strategy to get her security needs met. She needs to feel 100% certain about you before she divulges herself. But at the same time, she wants everyone to find her irresistibly charming.
Venus is very practical in Taurus. She uses her natural resources to get things done. She is not afraid to tackle hard work, but “hard work” is a subjective term, now, isn’t it?
Where Mars attacks its chores with strength and vigor, or Mercury with rote precision, or Saturn ready to roll up its sleeves and put its nose to the grindstone, Venus’ first task is to protect her lovely locks with a kerchief, play some music and dance while she digs in. She has so much fun doing this that others naturally want to join the effort! Venus in Taurus is not above showing a little ankle (if you know what I mean) to attract the right resources that will get the job done. Venus in Taurus is an awesome delegator that way. At any rate, Venus in Taurus will see the task through to the end.
Venus in Taurus is very comfortable in her body. Thick, juicy bodies or slender, bodies with stringy arms and legs, Venus in Taurus finds the human body a masterpiece and appreciates them all. Taurus, being the sensual earth sign it is, provides a framework of sensual body love. Engaging the physical senses is very important -- body work, massage, pedicures/ manicures, the grass under her bare feet, the wind in her hair, a skinny dip just to feel the water on her skin...
Being the most feminine sign of the zodiac, Venus in Taurus thrills to the elegance of wearing luxury fabrics, expensive perfumes and beautiful jewelry. She eats decadent gourmet meals made of whole foods patiently prepared for the epicurean, and whole foods because ...why waste your time on cheap imitations?
When it comes to money, Venus in Taurus knows how to make it. Venus in Taurus loves collecting art, perfume, antiques not only because they are beautiful and bring her pleasure, but also because they are valuable assets. She cares about security, knowing that when her needs are met, she is able to relax. So Venus in Taurus might work three jobs to stockpile the resources. Or she might marry wealthy. Or, she comes from money herself. Venus in Taurus natives often enjoy working in the finance industry, the fine arts or music.
Taurus rules the throat. It is not uncommon for people with Venus in Taurus to be singers or musicians. A few of the famous examples I can think of are:
Prince, who had Venus in Taurus in his sixth house of devotion/ career and health.
Lana Del Rey, with Venus conjunct her Ascendant in Taurus, the house of self.
Ariana Grande, with Venus in Taurus in her fourth house of the mother.

VENUS IN TAURUS through the HOUSES:
If Venus is transiting your first house in the sign of Aries, over the next few weeks you will likely want to be seen in beautiful places, or places that can connect you to a sense of beauty -- art museums, outdoors during the golden hour, a gala event. Your appearance becomes very important to you, and will likely feel a strong focus on your clothing. This is a good transit to get a personal makeover, or start a solid exercise routine.
If Venus in Taurus is in your second house, this is a triple whamy-- the second house is ruled by Venus and associated with the sign of Taurus. Though you may act shy, people find you very alluring and want to stay within your orbit. You evoke a sense of coy mystery. You are very sensitive during this time-- sights, sounds, aromas all evoke yummy feelings within you. You long for sensual experiences that arouse your inner pleasure seeker. You will be able to see the beauty in everything, or beautify anything you come into contact with. You long to be in the company of "real" people. Your personal values, if tested during this time, will likely be strengthened. This is a great time to focus on wealth building and securing your future.
If Venus in Taurus is transiting your third house, you seem to know just the right thing to say at the right time. You are sexiest when you can joke and laugh. You are also turned on by the comedian (is there a summer fling on the books?) You are a tad restless, though, and will likely want to go on a romantic weekend get-away during this time.
If Venus in Taurus is transiting your fourth house, you likely feel sentimental or nostalgic. You may suddenly feel like a gourmet chef, breaking out the flavored oils and herbed salts to cook up a decadent meal for your lover. The idea of infusing some hygge into your interior decor sounds so cozy and romantic.
If Venus in Taurus is transiting your fifth house, you better get your hair done because your charm is on fire! Things are about to get very frisky and playful! During this time, a romantic rendezvous is in order! With a flair for the dramatic, you are in love with BIG love. It's a joyful time, and a very good start to your summer!
If Venus in Taurus is transiting your sixth house, you likely will feel a stronger than usual devotion to finding the perfect love match. You might suddenly feel attracted to someone at work, or your health coach, a personal trainer, etc... As Venus through the sixth house activates issues around your health, this is a great time to find love at the gym, the produce aisle, er---or the E.R. Or, if you are currently in a relationship, you might find yourself proving your love through sensual acts of service. Massage?
If Venus in Taurus is transiting through your seventh house, expect your romantic partnership to go to the next level. Whether you have just started dating, or are together for years, this transit will most likely inspire a stronger commitment than you've ever felt before. This is a great time to get touchy-feely with your partner, to really engage deeply and work on the relationship, if you feel the need to. Otherwise, there is an emphasis on time spent enjoying each other's company through cuddles and commitment.
If Venus in Taurus is transiting your eighth house, you may become obsessed with what your body can do. Expect things to get a bit, er, kinky in the bedroom! Taurus supports the eroticism of the 8th House--especially when it comes to self-love (if you know what I'm sayin') and Venus loves to explore her otherwise "hidden" side here. Also, there is a strong possibility that you receive money of some sort during this transit: a windfall, inheritance, a lump sum payment from a law suit, or a refund for having overpaid your taxes.
Venus in Taurus through the ninth house activates the exploration of your body. It opens up the possibilities in love! You need freedom to explore during this time, metaphorically and literally! If that means discovering new territory through education, travel or through body work... well then, ok! You might find yourself attracted to a foreigner, or have a fling with a foreigner. Whatever happens, there is no limit to your love!
Venus in Taurus through the tenth house activates your social status. Your charm is off the charts and others are enamored of you! People seem to respect what you do and what you say. If you are married to your career, this is a great time to receive recognition and bask in the glow of the spotlight. If you have been thinking about getting a job in the finance industry, the arts or in music, now is the time to go for it!
Venus in Taurus in the eleventh house activates your social life! People are genuinely interested in what you know, so share it! The weirder your ideas, the better! You stand out from the crowd and this makes you even more irresistible. Fair warning: This transit could be a clarion call to all the weirdos out there, so if you are not into that kind of thing, do be careful.
Venus in Taurus through the twelfth house awakens you to your deepest desires. Self pleasure does not come easily for you with Taurus in your house of repressed feelings, and this transit opens you up to these long forgotten sensations. This is a time of tuning into your soul whisperings and engaging with your most valuable resources. It is a great time to remember how to fall in love with your body.
