Venus will be very strong in the sky in Taurus for a month and afflicted by only Rahu in Taurus  toward the middle of the transit with the exact conjunction May 18th in the Mean Node system.  If you are Taurus or Libra rising or have a strong Venus in your chart, it is a good time for feeling expansive, refined, pleasant, comfortable, kind, generous, artistic, strong in relationship skills.

Taurus brings the blessings of Krishna and Shiva and is one of the more material signs of abundance. This transit with Venus in its own sign creates a Malavya Yoga for Taurus rising and indicates the highest manifestation of Venus’s qualities so it is a good time to enjoy good food, the arts, and home while pursuing partnerships and romance.  Finances can be good depending on what cycle you are running as transits are 20% of impact with dashas being 80%.   It is a time to feel at home and to move forward solidly in your life with lots of Grace.

Libra rising will experience an eighth house transit of Venus in its own sign and this is a time for personal transformation and unexpected money coming from lotteries, insurance or other unexpected sources. Meditation and spiritual experience could be powerful and so a good time to take a spiritual retreat and withdraw from the senses.


Venus, the planet of luxury, beauty and sensual pleasure, is friends with Rahu, the planet of desire. They are good friends and their conjunction into  Tuesday May 18th  in the mean node system and are closely connected  within 3 degrees from May 15-20th.  This   can increase sensual desire for sweets, sexual activity, shopping or going on a buying spree. The two planets in the mean node system are in Rohini Nakshatra promoting pleasure and comfort but if you have a bias toward affairs in your natal chart, this constellation could trigger some of that energy.

Be aware of this conjunction because the tendency may be to over-eat too many sweets or not be satisfied by your partner–no matter how often they are there. It can also create overspending if you feel a lack from not getting enough sensual attention. Good balance and solution is to schedule a massage if Venus is not feeling complete rather than indulging in excessive shopping or eating too much chocolate. Better, yet, find other ways to love yourself rather than looking for it outside of yourself.

Mercury and Venus in Taurus is a bright spot this month for a difficult line-up for the rest of the planets –so count your blessings.  Mars is still suffering in Ardra nakshatra until May 15th bringing up a lot of transformation and turmoil and anger. Saturn starts slowing down around May 15th and goes retrograde on May 23rd and this is always an intense time and particularly an anxious one as Rahu is aspecting it until September rather closely and Mars throws a sneaky 8th house aspect to Saturn exact into May 15th.
