Venus in Taurus Loves Cuddling in Nature!
Learn More about Venus in Taurus People!
The astrology sign placement of Venus in the horoscope gives telling information about people, especially the key to their romantic hearts. But other facts are found in the sign where Venus is as well. Venus shows what kind of social nature you have, whether you are the life of the party or a wallflower. What kinds of things do you like to have around you, or in your home? Do you like silk sheets or would you prefer to go camping?
You can get the whole scoop about a person’s love and social nature when you know and understand what sign their Venus is in. If you already have a horoscope cast, you may use that to re-evaluate Venus and find new information. The sign Venus was in at your time of birth can also be found in an ephemeris, if you have one. Here is also a link to a site which can provide you with the sign Venus was in at your birth time http://cafeastrolgy.com/venussignstables.html.
Tiffany and Thomas Meet
Thomas has Venus in Taurus, so when he cares about another person, his affection is a real and lasting one. He was kind and mannerly the night he and Tiffany met at the pet adoption center, and she was so touched by his love for animals. She could tell immediately that this could be someone special! Neither one of them was inclined to rush into a relationship, as people with Venus in Taurus like to play it safe in love. They really want to take time to get to know the other person, so they will be sure of their feelings before they make any serious moves.
Tiffany has issues with men who spend too much money, and although she appreciates a sense of humor as well as anyone, she prefers her men steady and practical. Tiffany wants to feel secure, and she wants a man who treats her like a lady. And she deserves this, because she always behaves like one. Tiffany is never going to go out with Thomas for drinks, then jump up on the bar and take off her bra to dance for awhile. And Thomas would freak out if she did.
Tiffany will daintily sip her two glasses of white wine, and Thomas will sit protectively close with his arm around her, so any other men in the bar clearly understand they are out together. And by the way, Thomas took home the Siberian Husky with blue eyes, he couldn’t bear to leave that beautiful dog at the shelter, and for Tiffany it was love at first sight for “Natasha.”
You Belong to Me
Possessiveness may come into play when a person has Venus in Taurus. They are a bit jealous and do not like it when their sense of security is threatened. But they are nowhere as bad as Venus in Aries or Leo people. It’s a subtle sort of “you belong to me” vibe, which can be sort of sweet. The astrological sign of Taurus is ruled by Venus, so Venus in Taurus people are very loving and gentle people, very sensitive to the needs of others. They are very sensual and have a very nicely developed sense of touch. My husband was Taurus, and I was very interested the night I met him, when he drove me home and we had our first “goodnight” kiss. It was very memorable, and from a guy who came off as very polite and low key.
Venus in Taurus people like to be surrounded by beautiful things. They are nature lovers, and will like to hike in the woods, and enjoy other outdoor activities that lend themselves to seeing the beauty of gardens and national parks. Tiffany is the kind of girl who looks terrific with little makeup and with her hair in a ponytail. She can pull it off and still look like a dignified and good looking adult. Thomas loves the natural look, nature itself, and Tiffany, so he’s a happy man. She sees him snapping photos of what she thinks are trees and sunsets. Upon closer inspection, she realizes she is in the foreground of all his photos, nature is just her backdrop. When you capture a Venus in Taurus man’s heart, he idolizes you. And a Venus in Taurus woman will cater to her Honey, and spoil him to death.
They Love the Best of Everything
These people are hard workers, because they like nice things, and understand you need money to buy nice things. They do well in banking, real estate, accounting and any field where attention to detail is important. They will invest in stocks, but nothing too risky. They are practical, and want furniture and fixtures that are lasting and durable. So they will spend and expect to get the best. They love Persian carpets, good artwork, plush pillows on their brass bed, and need lots of storage for all the stuff they accumulate, so those ottomans that open up and have storage are perfect for these two. Tiffany and Thomas want people to think their home is a beautiful and charming place, though comfort matters too. Because of their love for pretty things, they can work in art museums, jewelry stores, furniture stores, or be artists themselves, and make paintings, sculptures, or music. Venus does rule the throat, so that makes good singers.
They both care about their appearances, and are well groomed. Tiffany is a natural beauty, and Thomas has the looks that do not require much maintenance either. Both love good food, probably like to cook and try new restaurants, so they really need those long hikes in the woods to keep off the pounds. If either is gaining, they will start exercising immediately. Venus in Taurus people can be a tad lazy, but maybe they can encourage each other to go to the gym.
Venus in Taurus people love plants and flowers, and it would not be unusual for them to have an actual greenhouse in the back of the house, or a Florida room that gets lots of sunlight for all their plants. The florist industry is another career that either would find satisfying.
These are the Lovers of the Zodiac
Tiffany and Thomas will be faithful to each other, and even as they grow old, will remain affectionate, holding hands when they watch TV, and kissing in the kitchen as they cook dinner. They are friendly and sociable, and love to invite people over to their place. Once they decide they have something worth holding onto with each other, they will live together or get married. Both are old school, and secretly like the whole wedding scene, with all the ceremony, decoration, and family there. But these two will take those vows seriously. They were a couple since that first night when the adopted Natasha together; a family already!
Although they are stable in the relationship, they are stubborn in their opinions. But this is a placement which Venus helps soften, and so they may agree to disagree. The financial outlook for this couple is very good; money and possessions gained by the fruits of their own labors and occupations will be wisely spent. Tiffany and Thomas will be generous to their friends and family too. They may inherit money or expensive items from older relatives. Family relationships really matter to Tiffany and Thomas, so rather than hassle about which side of the family they will visit for which holiday, they will be likely to host all the holidays at their home. And in a few years, as children possibly come along, they will sell the small home for a larger one; to accommodate their changing needs and growing commitments. This is a stable and lovable couple, who will be very happy and appreciative of the little things in life.
Questions & Answers
Question: I have a Venus in Cancer and am dating a Venus in Taurus guy. The thing that makes me feel uncomfortable with him is that he has a Gemini sun and I have a Cancer sun. I hear Gemini and Cancer sun don't get along. Do you have any advice for me?
Answer: I think the Venus in Cancer and Venus in Taurus is romantic and sweet. I never heard that Geminis don't get along with Cancers. In fact, most signs next to each other do get along well. Since you have a Cancer Sun, you have Venus in Cancer, but maybe Mercury is in Gemini. Since he is Gemini, with Venus in Taurus, we don't know where his Mercury is. It could be in Cancer. Mercury rules how you think. Mercury and Venus are the planets closest to the Sun, and are sometimes in your Sun sign, but often are in a sign before or after it. I think as long as you are doing well together, that you shouldn't worry about this. Your feelings get hurt a little easily. Geminis blurt out things they don't mean. But that doesn't mean it can't work. It's not bad, give it a try.
Question: I have a Venus in Taurus and dating a Venus in Taurus guy. The thing that makes me nervous is he is a Taurus sun/Scorpio moon, and I'm an Aries sun/Pisces moon. I hear Aries and Taurus suns don't get along. Do you have any advice for me?
Answer: Since you both have Venus in Taurus, you have the same attitudes about love and social lives. I have an article which explains this well: https://hubpages.com/creative-writing/Venus-in-Tau... The Taurus Sun Scorpio Moon is an opposition, and it's not the awful thing non-astrologers think it is. He has more intense emotions than you think because of the Scorpio Moon. But a Taurus Sun always seems calm and placid, so be aware he's more sensitive than you think. I never heard anywhere Aries, and Taurus Suns don't get along, we usually get along fine with the Sun sign next to us. Don't worry about it. I have something on Scorpio Moon, and people exaggerate these people, they are emotional but not crazy or erratic--
Question: I have Venus in Scorpio and am dating a guy who has Venus in Taurus. What scares me is that our signs are opposites, not only Venus, but the Suns too. He is an Aries, with Moon in Taurus and Mars in Pisces. I am a Capricorn, with Moon in Cancer, and Mars in Aquarius. He is a mysterious guy that makes him difficult to approach. He is a kind of close person that makes me unsure about his feelings and the stability of our relationship. Do you have any advice for me?
Answer: Firstly, if you are so unsure about the stability of the relationship, and of his feelings, I would stop right there and reconsider, before looking to astrology for the answers. You need to listen to your heart, your head, and use common sense if you are contemplating a serious relationship. Also, I had to correct this for about five minutes to be able to answer, so please, everyone, stop writing like you text. This is a writer's site, and none of you use capital letters, punctuation, or even sentences which actually make sense. I had to completely rewrite not only this, so don't be offended, but I am tired of doing this for many questions, I am an astrologer and writer, not an English teacher. Please write in classroom English.
Venus opposite Venus is not a bad thing. It means you want similar things out of love, and social life, you just go about it in different ways. Venus in Scorpio is more possessive and jealous, but can be loyal and passionate. Venus in Taurus is romantic and sensual, but also reliable and down to earth. So this is fine. If he is an Aries Sun and you are a Capricorn Sun, these signs are NOT opposite. They form what is called a square. They are both cardinal signs of leadership, so you both have ambitions and goals, and with those Venus signs, the will to carry them out, as they are both fixed or stubborn signs.
Your Mars in Aquarius squares his Venus in Taurus, but that's good for sexual chemistry. His Mars in Pisces makes him a dreamer, and he is sensitive. The Moons in Taurus and Cancer are great, both of you want security in love to a certain degree. Basically, you need to communicate so you don't both always insist on your own way. You are both reasonably faithful and want to be in a partnership. You also are both pretty down to earth.
I don't see anything really bad here that would cause problems. Of course, it's not a whole chart, I don't know what houses any of this is in, or what aspects any of these or the planets you don't tell me are. The sign opposite Aries is Libra. As an Aries, he's fun to be with, and they usually put their loves on a pedestal. His Moon is great with yours, he wants stability. He can be a little lazy with Mars in Pisces, but is probably very creative and artistic. So something else must be making you unsure. Your Mars in Aquarius means you like a bit of freedom. Otherwise, it looks fine to me. See how it goes. But trust your intuition, OK?

I don't know what "three aforementioned" couples you are referencing. I never suggest anyone can gauge compatibility on Sun sign alone. In my Venus series, I had to "invent" two similar personalities to show what traits they have. In over 40 yrs., I only know two couples of the same Sun sign that stayed together (both Capricorn). Then this site insisted on placing the articles in fiction, when I needed to have two people to contrast. Thanks for the comments.
Brigitte on March 30, 2020:
I am an Astrologer. Here is my simple and short opinion on all three of the aforementioned couples: All three are fundamentally incompatible (based on Sun signs) and although there are other compatible aspects between each of them, and the fact that all signs can find a way to make a relationship work, I would advise all three couples to simply remember that their relationships will require a lot more effort than others, and unfortunately despite the best of efforts may not last as long. (Best/Compatible signs are: Fire + Air ...and... Earth + Water)
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 17, 2018:
A planet (actually the sun and moon are luminaries, but we call them planets so as not to complicate matters more) is dominate when it has lots of aspects to other planets.
A good site for astrology that I trust and like is Cafe Astrology. You may find it helpful too. The offer to cast your chart still remains. Keep in touch and take care of yourself. Jean
Stéphane (from Montreal) on June 16, 2018:
Thank you for your answer.
True: in my birthchart there so many aspects (some easy some hard): lots of squares, oppositions, conjunctions, sextiles, and trines. Also true: I overemphasized the hardest aspects and kept silent on the easiest ones.
You are obviously right. Yes, I will keep dealing with the mental health issues! Right now my main problem is anxiety in social situations.
I have another question (I won't be too long). I thought a planet (or the sun or moon) might be dominant in someone's chart when it has lots of aspects with other planets. Nevertheless lately I read a planet is seen as very powerful if it has no aspect with another planet (which is not so often).
Which version should I believe? Both might be true?
I can relate to your views on astrology.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 16, 2018:
Thank you for sharing your story.
Being a Cancer Sun with a Cancer Ascendant does make you a sensitive guy--but I think that's really positive. Being a Cancer with 3 planets in the sign in my 8th house, I understand it's not easy. My issues are with death and finances.
I think that you are understanding astrology from an older mode which was from about 100 yrs. ago. Conjunctions are not bad at all. They do intensify the energies from the planets they are conjunct with. In turn, those conjunctions may make sextiles or trines to ease things. There are always good aspects to give you a way out of the harder life challenges in a chart. Squares can be hard, but offer us opportunities to change and be creative. They keep life interesting.
You are right about the cluster of planets in your 4th house, and I am sure you have many tough goings on with family issues.
It's so hard for me to answer your questions like this adequately in this manner. I really need to do a whole Natal chart to be able to offer the help I want to give you.
Please continue to deal with the mental health issues, promise? You can find me at email@example.com, or through Hubpages.com if you go to my profile page. Best Wishes. Jean
Stéphane (from Montreal) on June 15, 2018:
This is awesome ! I truly appreciate your passion for astrology.
I have sun in cancer, cancer rising, along with venus in taurus (and moon in leo). Sure, I am a sweet guy.....
First of all, my sentimental life is hard and very unstable - that being said, I have lots of very difficult placements (venus squared to moon, venus opposed to uranus (in early Sagittarius, and 5th house!!), moon squared to uranus, and so on.)
...Also add to that cancer/cancer placement : I have 4 planets in the 4th house of childhood/home; and you have to count the very hard or tough mars, saturn, and pluto (mars conjunct to saturn, saturn conjunct to pluto). The other one is jupiter.
Yes, I have had a painful childhood, including having experienced permanent bullying at school, life with a very narcissistic (somewhat sociopathic) brother, and a whole family being torn appart...
Taking everything into consideration, there is no surprise about the facts that I had (and still have) autism (Asperger's). Additionally I had chronic severe depression during many, many years - but YEAH !! about 5 years ago I did succeed to really get rid of my depression ! :)
Now I am trying to accomplish the same in regards to my autism...
It is very hard and I might not succeed at that. I might rather accept myself for who/how I am. That being said, I am trying. Really trying!
Being right or wrong.
I feel it is what I have to do in order to improve/upgrade my professional and sentimental lives.
That was my story, in relation to my understanding of astrology!
P.S. : Actually I wrote stuff that might seems very painful but I am in a good mood. No foul mood.

It doesn't work that way. Not only your Sun is in a sign. EVERY planet and the Moon is in a sign in everyone's astrology chart. That's why this hub is titled VENUS in Taurus People's Love Lives. It's not Sun in Taurus, It's Venus in Taurus, though some traits will be the same since Taurus traits are the same. And the sort of person described might be good for your brother. Take care.

my bro is a taurus, maybe should get a venus partner
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 19, 2015:
Thanks Carol, it's always nice to "see" you. Best of luck on the series of Astrology books, let me know when they come out. I still check in here everyday for the most part.
I'm teaching a beginning Tarot course at a local Healing Center, and also reading for a fee two Saturdays a month. So it's getting me out of the house, and doing something creative I like. Life is getting a little easier, but I still have bad days. I keep reminding myself most couples don't stay together for 39 years though, at least I had that. Take care.
carol stanley from Arizona on February 19, 2015:
Hi Jean: Thought I would drop in and say hi. I am working on a series of Astrology books--will keep posted. Hope you are doing well and life is good to you.
