Venus Transit & Retrograde Through Taurus
While the position of Venus in our natal chart affects us on an individual level, Venus’ continual transit through the signs impacts us all as it dictates the kind of “love energy that is in the air”.
When Venus transits through Taurus, we all tend to feel more sensual. We may be tempted to experiment in the bedroom with new sensations and will probably prioritize a partner that satisfies us sexually. We might also find ourselves becoming uninspired by “fads” that had previously interested us and returning to our roots.
Thankfully Venus does not retrograde through Taurus often, and will not do so again until 2044, as the planet only retrogrades once every 18 months.
However, whenever Venus retrogrades, we all tend to misstep when it comes to love. When this is combined with the energy of Taurus, expect possessiveness and jealousy to seriously undermine the stability of important relationships.
