VENUS IN SCORPIO
Think of Venus as a goddess who wants to have fun! She does not consider what society thinks-- that’s the moon’s concern. Nor what may happen in the future. Worry Wart Mercury does that. Venus focuses on the here and now, beauty and passion, loving our-selves and our mate! Now pair her with the distant but powerful planet of Pluto, ruler of the underworld in mythology. Key words for Pluto are: power, domination, transformation. This Venus sign spices up anyone’s horoscope chart!
Maybe because Venus in Scorpio is good with secrets, it has luck in investing money in stocks and bonds, and businesses. Keep the eye on youngsters with this place-ment. Natives of this Venus sign feel their pre-pubescent urges strongly! Passions run high in friend-ships, too, with envy and jealousy causing conflicts. When Venus in Scorpio learns to channel intense feelings, relationships improve. Pluto tears down what is not working well, from inanimate objects, such as machinery, to our association with others. Thus. this Venus sign purges its life of acquaintances, perhaps relationships, that no longer meet its needs.
Natives have great personal magnetism, whether they are above average in looks or not. You can tell this Venus sign by the intensity of the gaze, which is like a laser beam and close to hypnotic. Venus in Scorpio learns early in life to repress strong feelings, acquiring a poker face, while Heaven only knows what is going on within them. Structure in some stress relievers in the form of sports, studies in voice or musical instruments, journal writing, any form of meditation.
Men of most Venus signs, except Venus in Cancer, may be more reluctant to share feelings than women. That’s, oh, so true for this placement. Good advice would be to discern the right partner, one it can trust to share its feelings and not be betrayed. It must
not let the strong “urge to merge” over-power the intuition of who’s right for it. Then share those emotions regularly, even in small doses, rather than wait for an inevitable explosion when feelings, finally, are released.
And, yes, this Venus sign is known for its emotional storms--others call them tantrums. But that’s an exaggeration. A Scorpio seldom provokes; though jealousy is not a pretty attribute. In using its stinger, it does so in self defense and as a warning against future attacks. A Water sign, Venus in Scorpio is a master of interpreting feelings and a risk-taker that can be highly disciplined! Take charge of that emotional nature.
Women with Venus in Scorpio are sultry, owning an intuitive sexual chemistry. They may have studied the occult and can read your palm, tea leaves, or just your mind. In short, they will enchant you. They, as well as the male gender, are all or nothing people. Either they love something or someone, or ignore it. This Venus sign represents seekers for answers to life’s deep questions. When they forget to first connect to people at a more superficial level, they scare the Bejeesus out of others! No problem! Those who run from it, won’t be able to deal with its convictions, nor participate in a deep transformative love.
Don’t intrude in the kitchen, please; it prefers to work its magic alone. Venus in Scorpio, similar to Venus in Libra, is cool on the outside; though its intensity prevents it from ever coming across as totally relaxed. It shares an impeccable taste with that airy Libra Venus sign too; though the styles differ as day to night. Venus in Scorpio is a sign of the extremes. What it lacks in delicacy, it makes up for in daring ingenuity.
In the food department, as in life, this Venus sign cares not a jot for bland food, nor bland people. It likes drama in its life, and finds more piquant the aged cheeses and meats, and the more exotic dishes and tastes that linger, like garlic and curry, and cayenne pepper. Add to that aphrodisiacs, like clams, oysters, and eggs, which it finds interesting because of their professed sexual powers. The word “aphrodisiac” comes from Aphrodite, does it not? Of foreign fare, it is partial to the more common peasant dishes, such as the Spanish paella of rice, chicken, and hidden seafood surprises.
Speaking of surprises, this Venus sign tempts you with the taste of liquors and wine in special dishes. It is one to cover dishes, in grape leaves, with a lid, wrap it in foil, adding an element of mystery. Strongly connected to its feelings, if love goes, so does the appetite of this Venus sign. Like they say, “make hay while the sun shines!”
