On 5th March, at 3.08am GMT, Venus glided into one of its two home zones of Taurus, where she will reside through to the 3rd of April. By Sunday, Venus goes alongside the restless Uranus in a powerful conjunction. This is where the two planets meld together and share their energies. Mind, the chances are you are feeling this spicy influence right now.
You probably know that Venus is associated with relationships and romance, but she is also known as the lesser benefic (with Jupiter the greater benefic). So in Taurus, the sign of everyday money and values, Venus can be to do with fortune, whilst also about sultry attraction.
Uranus on the other hand, is the freedom fighter of the zodiac, making us outspoken, restless, and prone to pushing for sudden changes.Venus in earthy Taurus can see us drawn towards creature comforts, a touch of luxury, sensual pleasures and enjoying more material strands.
But this combination of Venus and Uranus could see some vociferous in their rejection of materialism, and more profile on protecting planetary resources. For most of us, it can be a case of enjoying some treats, but Uranus is about instant change, so the desire to do things off the cuff, and without limit, can make some more carefree both around love and loot.
Indeed, a dull and rather weak relationship can end, whereas as a basically sound tie by rejuvenated by greater spontaneity. Single? Someone can enter your orbit in a very fresh, and unique way, and this could prove dazzling if potentially, short lived. Hold onto your astral hats!
