If there ever was a Venus who knows the value of a little mystery, it is Venus in Scorpio. She has many secrets and most of those she will never share because she is very aware of how this adds to her allure.
Cheating on her is a major no no. Anyone foolish enough to do so deserves what they get and it won’t be pretty. There is a very good chance she will excise you from her life cleanly and completely. If Venus in Scorpio is paired with a Libra or Sagittarius Sun you might get a chance to explain and apologize but Sun in Scorpio? Forget it. Scorpio does not trust easily, so don’t risk damaging that.
Whilst Venus is exalted in another water sign, Pisces, Scorpio is considered her detriment. She rules Libra who enjoys light flirtations, beauty, peace and harmony while Scorpio is inclined towards jealousy, possession and obsession. Exploring emotional extremes is something Mars enjoys far more than Venus. He sees it as a challenge unlike Venus who sees those as a burden.
This year is a good one for Venus in Scorpio because she receives kisses from Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Cancer. Pluto in Capricorn has her back as does Saturn in Scorpio though the conjunction with Saturn may not feel like it at the time. Uranus in Aries is the only outer planet she will butt heads with.
The trine to Neptune in Pisces on September 13-14 is wonderful for budding romances. Plan a candlelight dinner for two in a private setting where you will not be interrupted. Venus joins the Saturn-Pluto sextile on September 18 and this aspect favors financial dealings. Good for estimating exact values.
Uranus in Aries is inconjunct Venus on September 20, the same day Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, stations direct whilst exactly sextile Saturn in Scorpio. Rash, rude behaviors will not cut it . . . at all. Helping sooth this aspect is a trine from Chiron in Pisces so perhaps a heartfelt apology will be heard. It is worth a try.
Two aspects bound to generate some excitement for Venus include a trine to Jupiter in Cancer on September 26. Lavish gifts anyone? And a passionate square to Mars in Leo on September 28 may lead to some very interesting moments for lovers. The latter comes with a caution because Leo and Scorpio are fixed signs, making it much harder to reach a compromise due to firmly held opinions.
Those of you with Venus in Scorpio natally ought to enjoy your Venus Return this year even if your natal Venus is weighed down by tough aspects. Do something nice for yourself that day.
Venus will remain in Scorpio until October 7 when she dashes into free and easy Sagittarius. This is one of those rare occasions when those born with a Libra Sun will have their Venus in Sagittarius as I do. Venus seldom travels so far from the Sun and in this case, she crosses the horizon behind the Sun, the occidental position. But that is a story for another day!
