Venus: goddess of art, romance, pleasure, and beauty. In Scorpio, wants become needs. Scorpio is extreme, living deep beneath the surface. The Goddess of Night enjoys shocking people. She is cutthroat, averse to superficiality. Scorpio’s mantra is I desire. The scorpion is driven, drunk on sheer intensity, stopping at nothing to get her fix, churning in a gigantic supernatural whirlpool. She’s a hot-blooded kiss on the lips, fervent, vehement, clinging madly, chasing her prey. See the witches dance within her.
With so much sexual/emotional/psychic energy pouring down from the skies, unstable relationships will suffer during this transit, but Venus in Scorpio is ultimately more about self-discovery than anything else. The passion we seek in interpersonal relationships is really intended for fierce self-love. Vulnerability is what the scorpion most fears and desires: soul stripped naked, nothing left between her and Truth. Under scorpionic influence, Venus is compulsive, fearful of losing power. When we break down – and let go of our need for control – we break through.
Venus in Scorpio is just as inspiring as it is challenging. Scorpio is the sign of transformation and rebirth, but first comes the wounded heart, the spiritual agony. This cycle is streaked with midnight, like potent medicine for the blistered soul, gleaming with phosphorescence from the cauldron. Diving to the bottom with the scorpion brings us to breaking point. Blackest black gives way to light. This is the scorpion mission, to find the edge and careen into the abyss: renewal through obliteration.
Drawn to all that is morbid and aberrant, the scorpion feels more alive when there is a crisis. Her stinger destroys in a moment, but just as Shiva rebuilds the world from utter ruin, so too does the scorpion. Scorpio’s poison will not kill you, but change you forever.
When we look at Scorpio from a greater context, we see that the scorpion leads us into Sagittarius. It is Scorpio who prepares us to receive the centaur’s effulgent starlight. Before we enter these sparkling amethyst flames, we need to resolve sacral chakra blockages. It is time to remove malevolent energies from this region. A romantic partner can be of great help, but this is not necessary. If you are standing in the role of healer, be careful not to absorb negative energies from your loved ones.
Venus enters Scorpio on the first day of the Sagittarius solar cycle + quarter moon in Pisces – a super busy day! On Nov 27, Venus opposes Uranus Retrograde in Taurus. This influence asks us to meditate on sex and intimacy – what do we really want? Often accompanied by poor sleep and/or unusual aches and pains in the body.
On Dec 5, Venus forms a harmonious trine to Neptune in Pisces. This is a flowing and watery influence, very dreamlike and conducive for travel and music.
I hope everyone’s doing ok. I’m struggling with some pretty serious depression. Hang in there. Take really really good care of yourselves and one another <3
