Venus in Taurus

This week Venus enters the sign of Taurus. Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is exalted in that sign and will encourage the best elements of that sign. Venus is responsible for beauty, creativity, feelings and affection while Taurus governs pleasure, sensuality, possessions, ease and comfort.  The next 3 weeks might prove to be the best time to engage in art projects, beautifying your home and spending quality time with loved ones. This transit is a good time for burying the hatchet around past conflicts and taking time to indulge yourself in the better things in life, especially if the last few weeks have been stressful.  As this transit occurs prior to the Mercury Retrograde on March 12, taking things ease right now might serve you well in the days ahead.
