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. For Taurus Venus—and really any Taurus placement for that matter—nowhere beats the comforts of home. But 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. When they dress, they do so to impress. Of course, their ruling planet, Venus, wouldn't allow anything less from them.

Beyond their refined taste, those with their Venus in Taurus are steadfast lovers and friends. Patience is a virtue for these thoughtful lovers, so they don't mind waiting for their person of interest's affections. However, don't expect them to beg, as that's below them. Venus in Taurus is a prideful placement.

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.

Just as they love the finer things in life, so too are they willing to provide them. Gift-giving is a primary Venus in Taurus love language along with quality time, so expect heaps of both in a relationship with a native of this placement.

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. Beauty isn't everything; it's the only thing. While they are devoted, this is due to a perception of their loved ones as possessions.

What's more, Venus in Taurus can be slow to act, sometimes throwing away their shot due to a fear of rejection. Furthermore, their intransigence makes them difficult in love.


Venus in Taurus is a rock in more ways than one—solid, consistent, and a little difficult to move—so don't expect "I love you" for quite some time. These folks take their time in love as in all their exploits. Slow and steady truly does win the race for those with this placement. However, nothing worth doing can be done quickly, and Taurus Venus is definitely worth the wait.

Theirs is a love fraught with sweet nothings, gentle touches, and thoughtful gifts. They are as romance-oriented as Taurus' ruling planet, Venus.
