You’ve already read the horoscopes for 2021 Venus in Taurus (right?) and read my Taurus Season survival guide (right?), so you should have a solid idea about what Sun, Venus, and Mercury in Taurus have in store for your zodiac sign. Now, as an astrologer, I’m not supposed to play favorites, but I can’t deny that Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus are going to be a lot more enjoyable for a handful of zodiac signs. The question is which signs will enjoy the transits more and why.
Don’t fret (save that critical thinking for your classes). I’ve compiled a list of zodiac signs that will love 2021 Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus. Spoiler alert: it’s not any fire or air signs. You’ve all had your fun, now go sit in the corner while these other signs enjoy themselves.
This one is kind of a no brainer. Of course Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus are going to be good for you, because they’re highlighting your 1st House, the house of the Self. Life will feel like a walk in the park for you. Literally. You will find yourself walking in so many parks since planets in Taurus love outdoor recreation (it’s your favorite type of ASMR).
Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus also love creature comforts and all forms of luxurious self-indulgence. This self-indulgence may take several forms, including, but not limited to: bubble baths, embroidery, eating an entire pizza, splurging on a new thrift store wardrobe, stock-piling silk sheets that you bought on sale from TJ MAXX, or getting a shiatsu massage.
With Sun, Mercury, and Venus in the 1st, you simultaneously feel calm, charismatic, and beautiful. Your hair, makeup, and clothes will be on fleek (are you Gen Z’ers still saying on fleek?) and socializing is a breeze. The planets attract attention and adoration to you the way pollen attracts all them bees. Enjoy it while it lasts…
In your horoscope, I mentioned that now’s a good time for group involvement (actually, I said such activities offer you asylum, but whatever.). This isn’t because you’re looking to selflessly give all of yourself to a group project or club. Oh no, Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus has you wanting and attracting adoration from the people/friends in a group project or club.
If you’re without a group or club, Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus will see you gravitating towards one. Why? Because they’re transiting your 11th House of like-minded bonds. Sun, Mercury, and Venus in the 11th get you the attention you so often claim not to want but secretly cry over not having. Thanks to the three planets, people will applaud you and your creative efforts (provided you actually make significant creative efforts).
In love, it’s all kisses, cuddles, and hugs (your favorite), but the emotional connection you often seek might be missing. You can forgive the oversight, because this physical love feels just as good…
Finally, you’ve made it onto one of Cosmic Cannibal’s “best of” lists! Isn’t it exciting? If not, Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus will be. The planets are sitting pretty in your 9th House of adventure and expansion, drawing you towards that which takes you out of your everyday life.
You may be called to travel (which you can do only if you’re vaccinated), but you’ll more than likely cozy up with a good book or TV series to take you on a mental vacation. In fact, you desperately need a mental vacation, what with all the schoolwork you have going on. Oh, but Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus help you with this as well. (It’s true!)
Ideas flow with ease and you’re better able to explain topics that felt confounding last week. In love, you and your partner should try something new– and no, that doesn’t mean ordering from a different restaurant on Grubhub. If single, expect to meet someone who is so exotic you can’t resist them…
Seeing a pattern here? You and the other two three earth signs are obviously going to love and benefit from Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus because Taurus is an earth sign. But unlike Taurus and Virgo, you, Capricorn, will love this transit the most. No, this isn’t because of your competitiveness, it’s due to the fact that the three planets are in your 5th House, one of the best houses for any planet to transit.
You’ll feel more good-humored than you’ve felt in a year (not that that’s hard, since 2020 sucked), because the 5th House is the house of love, fun, art, and self-expression– all of which vibe big time with Sun, Mercury, and Venus. So, don’t subdue the playful, jubilant instincts or the optimism and sudden magnanimity.
This is a time to let your hair down, open your heart, and act like a kid again. Paint, write, play outside, do any and everything that reminds you what it’s like to not have a care in the world…
You and Taurus go together like peanut butter and jelly. Neither of you are of the same element (or food group), but when placed side-by-side, you bring out one another’s best qualities. Naturally, this makes sense why you’ll benefit from these transits.
Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus just get you. You’re all serene, passive, and big time lovers of peace. Transiting your 3rd House of communication and everyday affairs, Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus slows the pace of your every day and ensures that every time you speak, people hear what you have to say. (This is departure from what you’re used to: being talked over and interrupted all the time.)
Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus also have a grounding effect on your thoughts, which is something you so desperately need, since you can be so spacey sometimes. It’s a lot easier to not only brainstorm ideas, but to also put them into motion. Bonus: Venus in Taurus might also attract the perfect peanut butter and jelly soulmate…
