Venus in Taurus - March 28th to August 1st

When the world is having a conniption fit and everybody's underwear is in a bunch, it sometimes helps to stop and smell the flowers. A few days ago we had a break in the weather, so I decided to go for a walk. The sunlight was streaming through the trees. The birds were singing. I thought, "Coronavirus? There's no stinking Coronavirus out here! Just fresh air, the wonderful smell of cedar and pine, and the warmth of the sun." There is nothing like the infinite beauty of nature to remind you that our problems are really only tiny blips on the radar screen. They may seem overwhelming at the time, but they come and go, and then we move on.

Sometimes you just have to allow yourself to enjoy life, even if you are going through a difficult period. There is always some little corner of your life where something positive is going on. Astrologically speaking, we can look to the transit of Venus for a hint as to which part of life might produce a more pleasant experience.

Venus will be transiting Taurus from March 28th to August 1st. Venus owns the sign of Taurus so it tends to produce very positive results when it transits in that sign. At the same time, Jupiter will be aspecting Taurus from Capricorn, so Taurus will get a nice boost during the next few months. That means the aspects of life, signified by the particular house that is occupied by the sign of Taurus in your horoscope, will be likely to perk up and improve in some way during the transit.

Here is a description of the areas of life that Venus might improve for you, based on your Surya Lagna. That's Vedic astrologer talk for your Vedic Sun sign. Remember, we use a different zodiac in Vedic astrology, so you have to look at the birth date ranges for each of the Sun signs carefully. If you happen to know your Vedic Moon sign, Lagna (Ascendant) or Arudha Lagna, then you can read the results for those signs as well. If you happen to know all of those signs, you could potentially read the predictions given for four signs. That may seem confusing, but each of the descriptions reflects a different angle on the transit of Venus and will tend to manifest in its own way.

Remember, the predictions only apply to the period between March 28 - August 1, 2020.

Vedic Sun Signs

Apr 14 - May 14 (Aries) This may be a good period for finances. You might also spend money for pleasure, comfort or enjoyment at this time. If you have been impacted financially by the virus, then this transit will simply help you keep afloat and soften the temporary austerity. Venus is in your house of food, so this is a time to brush up on your cooking skills and maybe make some nice meals for yourself or your family.

May 15 - Jun 14 (Taurus). This is a good time for health and general well being. In the time of Coronavirus, this could give a protective boost and it will help you to get into enjoyable health routines. You may feel more confident and charismatic. You will express more charm and warmth, so friendships and relationships will go well. This is also a good time for creative endeavors.

Jun 15 - Jul 15 (Gemini)   This is a great time to move toward the inner direction. It favors meditation, reflection and the introspective process, so it produces more inner peace. If you aren't having financial problems, this period sometimes produces positive expenditures, like buying food, clothing, or anything else that makes you happy.

Jul 16 - Aug 16 (Cancer)   Okay, I know, we are all doing the social distancing thing. But this period is good for socializing. You may enjoy your friends, group events, and association with other people generally. Ever heard of Skype, webinars, or Facetime? Just because you are isolating, it doesn't mean you have to feel isolated! This period may be good for finances. The period not only suggests the capacity to finish projects, but also to get what you desire.

Aug 17 - Sep 16 (Leo)   During this period, your career, vocation, avocation, or simply your day to day projects may be supported. Your ambitious pursuits will go smoothly. Your relationship with coworkers or your boss will be friendly and enjoyable. If your job has been impacted by the Coronavirus shutdown, this is a great time to get involved in creative projects, or activities that uplift other people in some way.

Sep 17 - Oct 16 (Virgo) Normally, this transit favors long distance travel, especially pleasure travel. Good luck with that! You aren't getting me on a plane any time soon! I don't care what the chart says. So I would suggest that you opt for door number two. The period may produce financial gains. It is also good for your relationships with teachers and advisers. It supports a sense of purpose and promotes the spiritual area of life.

Oct 17 - Nov 15 (Libra) During this period, you may have profits from outside sources such as clients, loans, business, or partnerships. However, if your job has been impacted by the Coronavirus, then this is a good time for getting involved with therapies of different kinds, especially those which are pleasurable in some way, like yoga. You don't have to have money to transform and empower yourself.

Nov 16 - Dec 15 (Scorpio) Venus will be transiting your house of relationship and marriage, so the period may improve your love life. If you are not in a relationship, this period could improve your prospects. Love and romance in the time of Coronavirus might require a little more distance than you are used to, but you don't have to let that stop you. In any case, this transit makes you reach out to others in a more loving, kind, or social way. It also favors business partnerships, contracts, and business in general.

Dec 16 - Jan 13 (Sagittarius) During this transit, you may put some positive energy into your health, or you might just notice that your health improves. That's well timed, since it will help you resist the virus and encourage you to develop some enjoyable health routines. If you are finding yourself spending a lot of time at home, order a yoga mat on Amazon. It has free delivery!

Jan 14 - Feb 12 (Capricorn). Coronavirus or no Coronavirus, Venus is transiting your house of love, affection and romance, so you may find your mood improving. You might feel more playful and social. This period may also be good for any creative pursuits, education, and entertainment activities.  

Feb 13 - Mar 13 (Aquarius) During this period, you may feel like beautifying your home, so this is the perfect transit to keep you busy during your little Corona vacation. Venus's transit also favors peace of mind and happiness. This would be a good time for purchasing beautiful things for your home, or even to buy a car. It also promotes your career.

Mar 14 - Apr 13 (Pisces) This Venus transit favors communication. You may find that your interaction with other people is friendly and enjoyable. If you have a younger sibling, this period may produce positive events for the sibling or for your relationship with that sibling.
