Venus is well known for its association with love and beauty, but also governs the manner in which we view our life – our aesthetics, our self-esteem and, our ability to create resources out of the raw material of our day to day existence. Venus leaves fiery Aries for Taurus today, one of the signs of its domicile where Venus is able to exert her influence more directly and foster greater peace and harmony. In Libra, the other Venus-ruled sign, we focus more on the idea of relating and the energetic nature of balance. In Taurus, an Earth sign, the urge for balance becomes more grounded into our physical experience.
The Moon is in Taurus all day today, giving us an added boost from the physical senses. I like to think of Taurus as being associated with the very Earth on which we live: the world of the senses and our physical experience is deeply affected by this sign. The next few weeks are the perfect time to explore the natural world and experience the healing effects of its organic beauty. The Moon will move into Gemini early tomorrow morning and we will go back into a more active mental phase, so let today be a day to smell the roses and breathe in the magic of spring. 🌿
