So Venus will be moving into its home sign of Taurus on June 6th (or 7th, depending where you are in the world). The first thing that usually pops into our heads when we think Venus is- Romance. That or the female gender, which is represented the same way as Venus’ planetary sign ♀
So women and romance are from Venus. But what else is there ?
I’ll just enumerate some things flowing from my current stream of consciousness. For more insights into the Venusian realm, I gently but firmly encourage you to refer to the book Graha Sutras, a commentary on Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra by Ernst Wilhelm.
So here we go. Venus rules vehicles. In ancient India, that meant elephants, nowadays, it’s carts and cars and those hover thingies, and everything in between. Venus is also the karaka (significator) of flowers! And of the (female) spouse. Venus rules teachers and students. It rules partnerships, among which marriage is one. It rules transactions. Beds. Clothes. Jewelry. The sour taste.
Whenever you come across one of these things, think of it as a pattern of Venus. It's also fun to look at what Venus is doing in your natal chart and make sense of its behaviour. Are your clothes mainly of natural fibers and dyed in natural colors? Most likely you have a well-placed Venus. Is your car a source of great expense? You may have your Venus in or ruling the 12th from one of your self factors. Men, is your Venus in Scorpio? You may get a short spouse - Scorpio makes things more compact, but that’s another story for a different time ~~~ stay tuned ;)
