Venus in Scorpio: Intense, Passionate, Committed
September 9 – October 1st
Venus enters Scorpio today and this will be a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships and around our financial affairs. This is conveniently perfect timing with the spooky Fall season right around the corner as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can fall right out, so we can be more secretive about both money and love. This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships! But often to get to the point of healing you have to pull out the not so fun emotional stuff first and do some serious analyzing.
Venus in soulful, seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what we love and what is superficial in our love lives and concerning our financial affairs, so secrets are often exposed. If you are cheating on a lover or partner, may I suggest you figure out what you want during this time, as this energy is going to draw out the truth around things like jealousy, secrets, abuse, and misguided behavior! Under the energy of the Scorpion we like to get to the bottom and below the surface of situations so we can examine issues of power, fear, sex, and desire more so than usual. Astrologers seem to consider Scorpio a tough sign for beautiful and sweet Venus, as Scorpio is not as concerned with superficiality and prefers chasing after love that will transform. So just like the Scorpion Queen herself, you may feel more like getting below the surface to examine things deeply in your relationships during this time.
Venus rules over our relationships and is more sociable, friendly, and affectionate. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go deeply into love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences while Venus is in Scorpio. Depth takes hold and becomes more important than intimacy, and pushes us to give up on just dating as we desire something more long-lasting and romantic instead. The only problem is people are going to again experience the darker side of Venus which is quite wild, think about what people do in the name of love sometimes, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows under this energy, it can get dark folks and you can get more obsessive when Venus is in this sign and jump way to fast when it comes to matters of the heart.
While Venus is in Scorpio our inner detective is on high-alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the shadows in our relationships. Those thoughts start to play more and more in our heads, and we tend to start looking at all the signs around us to see why we don’t feel at peace in our relationships. This can become obsessive and can feel more paranoid or jealous than usual under this influence. It’s a time to dig deeper beneath the surface and discover what we are intuitively picking up on and get to the truth of any matter, the light is going to shine on what’s really going on. But we are more willing to stick things out to find some sort of common ground in our relationships and with friends, and co-workers or business partners. So we can either make things work or let it go! This is a time for a major reality check if we like it or not.
Under this influence, we might experience the more Dark Side of Venus, which can turn her influence into something more mysterious and secretive, therefore we aren’t going to feel like playing nice like we have been while Venus was in the sign of Libra. Instead, we want to dig deeper and spark some sort of much-needed change in our relationships and around any issues we are having with money or our financial affairs. Just think of the world Transform, and that means things can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships.
Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns around money and any power struggles you may be involved in. Those little subtle issues that you ignored tend to be more obvious and exposed under this energy. How our money is spent becomes a bigger deal now, especially in our partnerships where financial resources are shared. This also seems to be a time when we have a much stronger interest in making financial investments and when we can make powerful decisions about loans, insurance, or in any area of our lives that concerns money.
While Venus in Scorpio we can feel intense and this can end up feeling like a heavy time emotionally speaking, but it can be an amazingly transformative time. All of this super intense energy leads to stronger bonds if you take on the challenge of this transit, but it can be hard on us both emotionally and physically speaking, but you can end up changing things for the better. This is a sexy time that could end up bringing you and your partner even closer together or help you meet a soulmate that connects with you on a very deep soul level. Either way, all we can do is ride the wave of this energy and keep ourselves and compulsions in check.
