What Venus in Taurus/the 2nd House Reveals about Your Chart

The planet of love and beauty is literally at home (domicile) in decadent Taurus, one of the two zodiac signs Venus rules. (Libra is the other.) If you were born with Venus in Taurus or the 2nd house, consider yourself lucky! You’re one of Cupid’s darlings and, whether you care to admit it or not, a hopeless romantic to the core.

Traits of Venus in Taurus

Let the slow jams pipe softly through your speakers and the vintage Pinot breathe alongside a pair of glasses on your counter. Venus in Taurus woos at a prolonged pace and doesn’t want to miss out on a single courtship ritual. That said, you don’t wait TOO long for a home visit. You need to see how the object-of-your-affections will jive with your everyday environment—and how much they’ll appreciate your gourmet-level kitchen skills, your elegant décor and your collection of tasteful films.

Love is steady with a Venus in Taurus

Cuddling is foreplay for your sensual Venus in Taurus, and you are especially gifted at the art of touch. Giving massages is one of your specialties—and you probably spend a pretty penny on sessions with bodyworkers yourself. For Venus in Taurus people, being relaxed is the key to being receptive to love.

If you’re in a relationship, it might be wise to stop by the gym (and use the sauna!) on your way home from work, so you can burn off the stress of the day before coming home to bae. When it’s finally time to do the deed, a lavish boudoir (yours, preferably) is the ideal place for the scene to unfold. Add to the list a plush, organic mattress, silky sheets, a down comforter and piles of pillows, which are aphrodisiacs for your comfort-loving Venus sign.  

Personal style for Venus in Taurus

With your discerning eye and appetite for luxury, you can be a bit of a style snob. No fast fashion for you! A thoughtfully-chosen wardrobe of boutique-label designers fills your closet. But you’re also practical and know what to splurge on, and also what to pick up at IKEA and hack it with knobs or paint. If your budget is slim, you’d rather rotate a few tailored pieces, shop consignment or even organize clothing swaps. You love entertaining and your home should be tastefully appointed with hand-loomed rugs, leather sofas and a growing collection of framed art. Taurus is an earth sign so plants may fill every corner—a great way to keep things lush if you’re balling on a budget!
