Taurus energy can be quite possessive, and given that this transit involves Venus, this can show up as being possessive over finances and love. There could be a tendency to act as if our partners are actually possessions that we own. When it comes to money, we may not want to part with it easily, especially because we don’t want to part with our money for frivolous reasons.
It is important to note that Venus also governs our values, so we could be quite stubborn when it comes to personal values and unwilling to make value shifts…even if it would be a good idea to change. Here’s the thing about possession…it is rooted in fear of loss. Venus in Taurus offers the understanding that when we are truly secure we don’t feel threatened that our partners, money, and even values will be taken away from us. Also, no one or nothing can possess another person. People are not things, and this is an important lesson of Venus in Taurus.
Partnering For Money & Security
Due to the desire to be financially secure, there is the potential for some to partner for money and security. Under ideal conditions, Venus in Taurus is deeply focused on building up the self no matter how long it takes, Venus in Taurus understands that as long as they continue to work on their finances and take things slow when it comes to relationships, eventually, they will have a pleasant life that they desire.

However, there are some people who simply do not want to work for themselves in any capacity. This is the lazy, negative side of Taurus that wants a life of pleasure and on easy street with no effort. So, what happens when the good life is desired, but there appears to be resistance to practical work? Such individuals end up partnering with those who already have the money and resources that are desired. This can lead to what some refer to as “gold-digging” to gain the good life through someone else’s efforts, resources, and money.
For those who choose to go this route to gain a pleasurable life, it is important to consider whether securing finances is more important than other aspects of a relationship such as genuine love and common interests. Ideally, such individuals would be able to get all of their Venus wants and desires from a specific person that also happens to be financially secure. However, it is important to note that this is not always possible, so consider carefully what one is willing to forgo in order to gain financial security through a partner.
The Trap Of Ruts & Stubbornness
Finally, while Venus in Taurus tenacity is quite admirable, it can also lead to stagnation. Because Taurus is a fixed earth sign, once this energy is set on something change is not likely. This is understandable given that is the purpose of Taurus to build a solid foundation in the physical realm. Venus in Taurus needs to be fixed to ensure stability and security in love and finances.

However, Venus in Taurus can create tunnel vision where we are so set on doing things our way in love and finances that we don’t give ourselves room to consider anything new.

Although the new may feel threatening, it could provide insights that could potentially improve our relationships and finances.
Ultimately, the Venus in Taurus transit presents us with the opportunity to obtain stability and security in love and finances. Whether we are finally deciding to settle down in a committed relationship or choosing to lead a more financially stable life, when Venus comes home to Taurus, we get to feel good about the practical, strong foundations of love and money.
