Your 2022 Venus in Taurus Horoscope

     After charging through fiery Aries with a hot-headed zeal, Venus is shifting into calmer, more graceful gears. On Sat. May 28, love planet Venus strolls into passive earth sign Taurus, slowing your roll in romance, relating and financial dealings until June 22. 

      Venus is the planet of love, pleasure, beauty, socializing, relationships and money. As a benefic–or beneficial planet–Venus attracts lots of good things to these areas of your life, including but not limited to: compliments, friendships, clothes, gifts, gift cards and yes, ~love~. 

     Together, Venus and Taurus are all about that hedonist lifestyle: eating, sleeping, relaxing, stockpiling money through passive income streams like investments and bitcoin, etc. This is because the planet of love and romance rules the fixed earth sign. And any time you have a planet in the sign of its rulership, the planet heaves a sigh of relief. During this time, Venus says ahhhh, because love, relationships, and even financial dealings, can finally function as they should.  

     So, if you’ve been waiting and wishing for a transit that emphasizes the sensual side of life, including security and pleasure in all sensory forms (see, smell, sound, taste and touch). This means we’ll be plodding and prioritizing any type of social activity, art / artistic pursuit and/or relationship that makes us feel pleasantly secure, if not a little doted on.   

     It’s true, 2022 Venus in Taurus is a time for doting, indulgence and rest. So, go ahead and take a languid stroll in the park, take an hour-long nap or a two-hour-long bubble bath (me, I prefer epsom soaks, but whatev). You’ll need it since Mars in Aries has you hard at work–Oh, and don’t forget to gorge on every sumptuous, savory and succulent food you can find. 

     Since Venus rules both love and money (and food), those are two areas of life that will see a boost during the planet’s transit through Taurus. Maybe gas prices will go down! Maybe they won’t! Idk. To really know how 2022 Venus in Taurus affects you, you’ve gotta read your horoscope. So, without further ado:

Your 2022 Venus in Taurus Horoscope

Aries ♈ (March 21 – April 19th)

     Attracting admirers isn’t your preferred methodology. You’re a chaser, a hunter, a pursuer. Well, even chasers get tired of running after ungettable gets. So, slow down (for once) and give yourself a little R&R. The money will come (it’s called crypto, and it wants you to invest). And love from others will be so copious, you’ll get sick of all the attention (yeah, right)…   

Taurus ♉ (April 20th – May 20th)

     Think of this as a post-birthday period of self-pampering. Not that you don’t pamper yourself already. In fact, you’re hella inclined to pamper, spoil and treat yourself. (As the great Lizzo says, “I’m a queen, but I don’t need no crown.”) So, be you, boo. Eat that birthday cake even though it’s not your birthday! Buy those silk pajamas! Self-care is in the little moments… 

Gemini ♊ (May 21 – June 20)

     Get ready for a passive yet persistent longing for romance and alone time. Wait. How can you love if locked away? Simple: don’t hide your heart. Be vulnerable and be OK with it. Also know it’s OK to be alone. Venus in Taurus can help you create marvelous things when you shut yourself away and dream. Just don’t let it turn you into a hermit… 

Cancer ♋ (June 21 – July 22)

     Clubs and groups offer a temporary asylum from the hustle and bustle. (Notice I said temporary. With you, nothing is ever permanent, because your moods ebb and flow.) If you’re in need of love, Venus in Taurus attracts a bestie or friend-like beau to deliver just that. Your challenge–and this is your eternal challenge–is to appreciate these lovely peeps without expecting them to constantly reciprocate…  

Leo ♌ (July 23 – Aug. 22)

     Long-range career goals are all you think about. That and how blessed the professional world is to have you in it. (It is THO.) With Venus in Taurus, you’ve got even more confidence about your ambitions, which makes you hella appealing to higher-ups. Be wary of complacency. Yes, you’re great, but consistent hard work (not boasts) will make your true worth known to the world…   

Virgo ♍ (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) 

     Would you believe me if I said your worldview is going to change due to an out-of-body experience? Of course you wouldn’t, you’re too skeptical. Truth is, you could have an OBE, but it’s more likely that you’ll indulge in an arts and culture adventure. Expect to explore many concerts, art walks and museum visits and to gorge on extoic foodstuff (Taco Bell doesn’t count)… 

Libra ♎ (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

     Look deep within…have you been hiding your emotional dysfunction from yourself and others? No biggie: Venus in Taurus lulls any lingering psychological upsets while also making others see you as brooding and mysterious. Exploit the hell out of this if you want to conjure up some magic in love. (That brooding shit worked for Edward Cullen.) Also, it might be smart to invest in crypto… 

Scorpio ♏ (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

     Soooo your phone is going to blow up with texts from your closest contacts and maybe a few adversaries. These people are obsessed with you (or so you think when reading their overly sensual text compliments, which you low-key love). If you’re anti-social with a limited rolodex, you feel compelled to unite with someone (anyone!), especially if they remind you of your dark shadow self…  

Sagittarius ♐ (Nov. 22 – Dec. 20)

      Sudden fondness for health and wellness arises, but it doesn’t lead to more than you intensely juicing for 1.5 days. Slow and steady is the best approach to this self-improvement stint. Lethargy and excuses are along for the ride. So too is your king-sized appetite. In love, you take a similar approach. Strange, since seldom are you ever slow or lazy expressing your affections… 

Capricorn ♑ (Dec. 21 – Jan. 19) 

     Create something that brings you joy. I know you just rolled your eyes, since you’re not the joyful or creative type. Your most joyful and creative pastime is making money. (Do you think Brene Brown considers that a joyful activity?) Actually, you’re a magnet for money, attracting it without lifting a finger. Venus in Taurus only strengthens this magnetism and bulks up your bank account… 

Aquarius ♒ (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

     Attachments aren’t your favorite thing in the world. Cautious around overly emotional people, you believe emotional (and often physical) distance keeps you safe. This aversion backfires and actually attracts more affection, which you shirk like Covid. You can continue living this unhealthy cycle of behavior; or you can face your fear and emotionally connect with another person. And no, Siri doesn’t count as a person…  

Pisces ♓ (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)

     Proverbs state a perceived, common sense truth, which makes them eerily similar to these po-dunk horoscopes. Neither can predict your future, but they can offer advice. Speaking of which, here’s some: Everything you can imagine is real. With Venus in Taurus, you can make your imaginings real. You just have to, you know, try and try again. Consistent effort has always been your biggest hurdle…
