Venus Is Officially in Taurus Which Means Romance Is in the Air
Venus, the planet of love, entered Taurus on April 14, which means the next few weeks are going to be pleasure-filled, to say the least. Until May 8, you might find yourself acting extra flirty or simply wanting to engage in more sensual and love-centric activities.
Every planet rules over certain zodiac signs, and in the case of Venus, it rules both Taurus and Libra. With Venus in one of its ruling signs — which is also a sign that values pleasure — you can expect things to be *quite* romance focused for the foreseeable.
While this is most definitely the time to prioritise indulgence and engage in expressions of love, for those with a partner or dating, be wary of tipping over into possessiveness as this can be a common theme during this time.
According to Cafe Astrology, “Tangible and physical expressions of love and romance are most important now. Holding on to someone we love is our tendency under Venus in Taurus. The shadow side of this is excessive possessiveness and treating our partners as objects that we own or want to own.”
With an emphasis on luxury, pleasure and sensuality over the coming weeks, this is also a great time to get more acquainted with yourself. Use this time to explore your own desires, especially in the bedroom. The common advice while Venus is in Taurus is to practice some self-love and keep your vibrator charged so you can capitalise on the current energy.
