Under the influence of Venus in Taurus, and depending on how this transit affects your birth chart, you could find yourself indulging in the sensual side of life. You’re likely to take your time expressing warmth and affection toward your sweetie, and will likewise revel in receiving physical contact.
You love your creature comforts, and are willing to pay for those little luxuries that sweeten your everyday experience. Even if your budget is tight, you’ve got a knack for making a little go a long way, and can be quite resourceful. Quality is more important than quantity, and you approach possessions and people as long-term investments. Material security is a priority, and you can make solid progress in building up your savings account — if you temper your tendency toward indulgence.
During this transit, your magnetism is strong, and potential suitors could be irresistibly drawn to you. But you’re not likely to jump into any romance too impulsively — you’ve got high standards, and are looking for a lasting commitment. Loyalty and stability are important to you now, and you might find socializing with a few close friends more satisfying than casting a wide net.
You may find your artistic side wanting to come out under this influence, and creative projects with practical applications could be especially appealing. You have a special gift when it comes to decorating your home, revamping your wardrobe, and creating culinary delights.

Bono, Rob Lowe, Elle Macpherson, Alanis Morissette, Mike Myers, Liv Tyler, Mark Wahlberg, Prince William and Noah Wyle.
If you have Venus in Taurus as a natal influence:
You are warm and affectionate, and you love your creature comforts. Good food, nice clothes, plush carpets, yummy sex — you want it all, and feel rather entitled to having it. You go for luxury, and have what used to be called ‘champagne taste’: wanting only the best, sparing no expense. Hopefully your budget allows this; you are, after all, a magnet for money.
If you have to make do with less than you’d like, remember you’ve still got a great knack for putting together stylish clothes, home decorations and just about anything else, making a little bit of money look like a lot. You’ve got great taste and an artistic knack. Comfort is as important to you as appearances, so you tend to go for plush furniture and stretchy clothing.
A love of sweets could make your weight a constant battle. When it comes to love, you are quite cuddly and demonstrative, never hesitating to express your affection for someone. You are sensual and love physical contact. Kinetically attractive, others are compelled by your magnetism, and you may have to set firm boundaries to deter unwanted suitors.
Friends and family love you for your inclusive nature, warm embrace, and loyalty. You know how to have a good time, which helps everyone else have fun, too.
