Feeling extra indulgent? You can blame (and thank!) Venus
Welcome to Taurus season! As the Sun tours through earthy Taurus, it’s time we all slow down, get grounded, and take time to smell the roses. What brings you joy? Taurus is all about (plant-based) indulgences – think food, sleep, romance, nature, and pampering!
Venus, Taurus’ ruling planet, will also enter the sign of the bull on May 15. As the planet of love and pleasure, Venus adds an extra layer of goodness to the mix. This May, we all need to place a little more value on simply enjoying all that life has to offer. That includes plant-based food – Taurus is a major foodie sign!
