You might have heard the old saying that “money makes the world go ’round.” If this is true, it starts each day in the zodiac sign of Taurus. This is the sign that rules the material foundation of all we experience. When planets move through this sign, subtle shifts in our relationship to money emerge.
Venus, the planet of love, art and beauty, is the ruling planet of Taurus. When it is in the sign that it rules, finances and material possessions are emphasized in our lives like no other time of the year. A pronounced fixation with money and materialism can become an obsession while the loveliest planet in the solar system is ensconced in the most materialistic sign of the zodiac.
While other planets disrupt or reward, Venus simply reveals the truth of the matter in all its beauty or ugliness. Like a great photographer, it knows how to frame the most ordinary event to look like a masterpiece in order to reveal the deeper truths of who we are. Venus enters Taurus on March 31 and is there until April 25. Read below to see how the Bull’s ruling planet will change your approach to living in the material world.
Aries March 21 – April 19
A feeling of security in finances will be related to your outlook on life. You have stuck to a deep belief in things and suddenly it is paying off. Mercury’s visit to Taurus rewards the Ram with reassurances about what you are doing right and which path to continue following. Decisions are easy as your mind is already made up.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
If you have never had to get by on your looks, now is the time to try. Even if you are not a drop-dead gorgeous model, looking professional will open career doors and a raise in your salary. Your appearance and your good name will bring in the dough while Venus is in your sign. The chance to establish a new level of income is assisted by handing out business cards.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
If you have an affiliation with an institution, large company or school, you can expect to find ways to make a living out of this connection. Perhaps you will get a job with a national organization that has a high profile. If you have an idea for a patent or other invention, be as secretive as possible and explore avenues for protecting your rights.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Unwanted attention and nosy neighbors will drive you into a new place of retreat, and from there you can control the acclaim you get. You may even find a way to profit from it all. The best part of Venus visiting Taurus will come from meeting a special someone who approaches you with a plan for the two of you to get rich and fall in love, but not necessarily in that order.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Your visibility is at its highest so enjoy the attention. The problems of balancing career and love will lead to wondering whether you should be chasing your own dollars or those of a handsome millionaire. You will be getting approached quite a bit while Venus is in Taurus and any flaws you reveal can be subject to some pretty vicious criticism. Tread lightly while looking your best.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Your exclusive expertise will make you a bundle while Venus is in Taurus. If you speak a different language or have intimate knowledge of a foreign culture, a career opportunity that pays well is in the offering. Think about making the leap, but think quickly. You could get enamored with multiple career opportunities and weigh the details for so long that time will be up before you decide on one.
Libra September 23 – October 22
The visit to Taurus by Venus could bring a long-awaited donor to your cause or an investor to your project. Venus also rules Libra, so this is a power-packed visit and you can impress your bankability upon any number of people. A lover may have someone who would finance your dreams and the two of you have not even realized how perfect this match could be.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Taurus is the natural partnership sector of a Scorpio’s horoscope, so the arrival of the planet of love means that a partner will bring in the dough for you while Venus visits. Do not get too excited, though, as there are always strings attached when things are free and a test of your love and loyalty will be a difficult mid-term examination if you have not been the sweetest companion.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Your natural optimism recognizes a great financial opportunity, but the commitment you have made to work on a project may limit your ability to actually cash in. You could end up stretched too thin in both your regular job and this new undertaking, leading to poor results. If you can hire someone to take on one or both of these roles without giving up control, you stand to do quite well.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
An intense romance could be lucrative; a lover will have some social contacts who turn out to be leaders in a field in which you could excel. Opportunities to network arise and taking on the role of “party girl” could put you in all the right places – and if not at the right time, close enough to find out when that optimum hour is scheduled for.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Money is to be made in a home office. If you have been working out of your place for a while now, Mercury’s visit to Taurus will bring an extra dose of profitability. If you have a long commute, consider getting some work done on your home computer. If you can think of a way to earn money out of your living space, get started before April 25 to spend the summer bringing in the green!
Pisces February 19 – March 20
There is an opportunity for wealth and fulfillment right in your own backyard. The way that you relate to your neighborhood and local community is ripe for commercialization. If you are an entrepreneur at heart, you will recognize the chance to make a buck. If you are more of a lover than a fighter, a cute neighbor may want to lavish you with gifts and his company.
