Venus, our planet of Love, slithers through mysterious Scorpio from November 7th to December 1st, 2017. While Venus in Libra was all about making relationships peaceful and balanced without ruffling any feathers — Venus in Scorpio takes us beyond the superficial to encounters of bare naked honesty…
“I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary.” ― Margaret Atwood
This Venus wants love seductively, privately, deeply, completely, but her game of seduction occurs subtly. Scorpios like things to simmer slowly and know that passion is usually intensified when it is restrained or suppressed. Grand overtures and declarations are major turn-offs. Passion is silent but eyes and body language speak volumes.
Relationships, romantic ones especially, will feel the heat in more ways than one…Venus here can be extremely suspicious of others, almost expecting betrayal and lies.
This intense Water Sign is capable of hating with the same level of passion as they once loved if you’ve crossed their invisible line. The scorpion sting is no fable. Jealousy, power plays, hidden agendas and possessiveness can also be the shadow side to this Venus atmosphere.
