Venus in Taurus Personality

Love is luxury for those with their Venus in Taurus. However, Taurus is one of the Venus placements most likely to ask for a nice night in. Don't take them for complete homebodies! They love a good restaurant—but no fast food. These natives' taste is much too refined for that.

Positive Traits

Unlike their fiery precursor, Aries, Venus in Taurus natives are a domestic bunch on the lookout for "the one," though their pickiness and slowness to act prevent them from choosing just anyone. Once found, they're as fixed as their modality, investing heavily in their lovers.

Negative Traits

As a Venus-ruled Venus placement, these natives sometimes fall victim to Venus' signature sin: shallowness. They tend to judge people less on the content of their character and more on the quality of their clothing or their beauty. While they are devoted, this is due to a perception of their loved ones as possessions.
