Scorpio is not the friendliest place for Venus who is much happier with light, bright and cheerful. The intensity and emotional drama Scorpio thrives on leaves her cold and unhappy. Her conjunction with Saturn in Scorpio on November 12, a few days before she shifts in Sagittarius, doesn’t help either. Duty and responsibility make poor bed fellows for Venus.
However Venus hits the ground running when she escapes the dark waters of Scorpio on November 16 for the wide open spaces of Sagittarius. Commitment? Forget it! Venus in Sagittarius is far more interested in keeping her options open and playing the field. To put it simply, she wants to have fun . . .
The first aspect Venus in Sagittarius makes is a square to Neptune in Pisces on November 20 which means denial about the unpleasant side of our relationships can run wild. Not only that but we probably won’t care . . . having a good time with no strings attached is what counts now. Eventually we’ll have to deal with all the messy stuff, just not now.
The following week on November 26 our creativity gets a big boost when Venus is trine innovative Uranus in Aries. Here again the emphasis in relationships is on free and easy. This can be hard on those who are seeking a lasting, committed relationship. If you are, then take heart because this is a fleeting influence and will fade away as quickly as it arrived.
At the beginning of December and the start of the Holiday Season, Venus is trine Jupiter in Leo. If you are on a tight budget, stay away from the stores with all their marvelously enticing displays of beautiful, expensive gift ideas! On December 4, there are two fire trines inviting us to spend, spend, spend – Venus trine Jupiter and the Sagittarius Sun trine Uranus in Aries. Impulse buying could be a real problem for some.
If you’re wondering why I didn’t mention aspects to Saturn in Scorpio or Mars and Pluto in Capricorn, it is because Venus will not catch up to Mars or Saturn. She will be semi-sextile Pluto on November 26 which might create a brief surge in jealousy that day. After Venus enters restrained Capricorn on December 10, love affairs become a private matter to be conducted out of the public eye.
