Venus in Scorpio

When Venus is in Scorpio, it marks a time when people are overly prone to include blatant and undisguised power struggles in close relationships -- as personal needs and desires become things to achieve "at any cost." The selfishness of this placement can be extremely disagreeable.

This is also a period when people are looking to unite their assets, resources, talents, skills, knowledge, energy, and interests---including, yes, sexual interests -- with others to form structures that offer more as a joint creation than either party could accomplish by working alone.

There is, indeed, vision, method, and benefit to the development of Scorpio energy, even in this difficult combination. People are looking for relationships that are both lasting and improved ... to fill their requirements for "other people" in their lives.

Basic Stuff About Venus in Astrology

Venus & Scorpio

In Astrology, Venus symbolizes the individual's social self and social instincts, the ability to form and participate in relationships, his need for partners, his way of supporting himself by acquiring the resources he needs to survive, his attitudes and conduct toward money and possessions, and his abstract personal values.

Scorpio is involved with creation by merging supporting elements into community property. It uses the whole idea behind "strength in numbers," such as one finds in business coalitions, credit unions, food coops, merchandising clubs, barter systems, and even Communism as an abstract political philosophy.

By joining forces and combining capital wealth ... all the partners benefit -- building something more impressive and useful than either could have had by himself -- or by retaining individual ownership.

Venus in Astrology
Light Reading & Open Articles

Venus -- Physics, Metaphysics and Myth -- Part 1 ---> Physics ---> Venus is the second planet outward from the Sun. It orbits between Mercury and Earth. Like Mercury, Venus lacks any moon. These are the only two planets in our Solar System of which this is true. The Earth, of course, has one Moon. All the other planets have multiples. Even Pluto has five. Although it's counter-intuitive, the fact is Venus, although farther from the Sun than Mercury, is actually hotter. Even though Venus reflects 70% of all the sunlight it receives -- which is why is shines so brightly in the sky, Venus is still hotter than Mercury. Venus is wrapped in ....

Venus -- Just the Facts -- Venus and its many guises in the Zodiac ---> Introduction ---> Like Mercury, your Venus energy describes two inner selves. One helps you form and manage your relationships, the other is in charge of your finances and management of material assets. Mainstream Astrology often reduces these vital life areas down to "love and money," but your Venus energy is lots more complex ... and covers a lot more territory than just that. Yes, indeed, Venus deals with partnerships ... and love -- your earning and spending choices ... and money. It aims to keep these two significant life areas working comfortably ....

The Delights of Delectable Venus -- You and the Goddess of Earthly Enjoyments ---> Pink is a Venus color ---> Venus -- everybody's favorite ---> You'd think Venus would be everybody's favorite planet. It rules, among other things, love and money -- two topics that get a ton of attention in the media and in the goals many people apparently set with their behavior. Sex and money. Messages, concerns, advice, and images about both assault us constantly. These interests are often the common theme in advertising we cannot escape -- on radio, television, billboards, magazines ... and the internet. You almost can't get through an ....

* Venus in General -- Your Inner Selves of Resource Management and Relationships ---> Support comes in many forms ---> According to dime-store astrology ... the kind most people know from the little booklets they buy on newstands ... Venus in Astrology rules the two alluring topics of money and love. Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus and Libra, and there is, indeed, a connection here between Venus ... money ... and love. Taurus deals with things of value ... especially things of material and financial value. Money certainly falls in that category. Libra rules close relationships, important alliances and partnerships -- like marriage. Love should ....

* What Does Venus Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Pink is a Venus color. ---> Named for the goddess of love ---> Venus, modestly shrouded in clouds when photographed, is named for the mythological goddess of love. It is often seen as the evening star -- so bright and shimmering some say it gets mistaken for a UFO. Maybe. Maybe not. It is also the astrological symbol for how a person works with and relates to things of value, including his social self, his need and ability to form relationships, the feminine side of his romantic soul -- and a strong indicator of the kind of love he both offers and wants to receive.

* Venus -- Astrology's Symbol for Love and Money -- Deciphering the Pleasure Principle in the Horoscope ---> Partnership and assets ---> Venus in astrology is about the experience of shared support and comfort. It's about pleasure and enjoyment. It's about partnership and alliances -- including marriage. It's about the judicious management of possessions and material resources -- physical assets and income. Venus rules two signs -- earthy, practical, acquisitive Taurus and companionable, harmony-loving Libra. In the common shorthand that reduces everything down to basic elements to explain it quickly, Venus presides over love and money. And yet like all concepts that reach for ....


More About Venus

* Venus -- Ruler of Taurus -- Ruler of Libra ---> Pink is a Venus color! ---> The Roman goddess of love and desire ---> Venus. The Greeks called her Aphrodite. She was born of sea-foam -- and Botticelli's famous painting shows her as a fully mature woman, standing in a scallop shell as it arrives ashore. Her archetype is considered the feminine counterpart to the lusty maleness of Vulcan and Mars. (Hephaestus and Ares) ....

* Your Venus Energy -- So much more than love and money ---> Named for the goddess of love ---> Venus the planet, and therefore Venus in Astrology, is named for the Roman goddess of love. That's the short definition of what she symbolizes, and the minute people hear that, their ears perk up and they want to know more, more, more. Her Greek counterpart was Aphrodite, but that's not the "more" people want to hear. Like all short-and-simple answers to complex questions though, this one is misleading and woefully incomplete. Venus the goddess was in charge of many other things besides "love" -- however ....

* In the Company of the Goddess -- Venus ... the Symbol of Love in the Zodiac ---> Venus represents beauty and comfort and all things of value, pleasure and enjoyment ---> The planet Venus as a symbol in Astrology represents our sense of beauty and comfort, the way we deal with money and issues of physical support, and the way we manage our close relationships. It is, therefore, an important indicator of our personal values. Notice the "value" we place on all the things just listed. Venus is always relatively close to the Sun ... and, in fact, is never more than 45 degrees away from the Sun, but the location of Venus relative to the Sun can, in and of ....

* My Notes About Venus -- A comprehensive list -- of things about Venus -- in no particular order ---> Editor's Notes ---> This page -- and the subsequent continuing links -- basically offer a comprehensive list of things to know and keep in mind about Venus -- what it does and what it means in Astrology. It contains a lot of unorganized, raw notes on the topic ... basically everything I know about this planet, its functions, its symbolism, its uses and how it operates. I add to all this from time to time and reorganize it in various ways ... but mostly this is a page for me and my personal use. I keep it here where I know where to ....

* Venus Retrograde -- Realigning Your Values and Assets ---> Reassessing things of value ...---> Venus represents your important relationships, your important values, and the way you handle the things you value, especially material resources like money and possessions you need to support yourself. When Venus is retrograde, these things get special attention from everyone. Retrograde energy shows it's time for humankind to back up and re-evaluate these vital concerns. You will reassess, either actively, in dreams or in just idle moments of reflection, what you've accomplished so far, what you've ....

Venus Rx -- Adjusting Your Values ---> This Venus Retrograde cycle began March 4. It will end April 15. In its retrograde travels, Venus moved from 13° Aries back to 27° Pisces. It will be in Pisces until April 28 when it enters Aries again. Where that segment of the circle falls in your Natal Chart shows specifically where you are working with this retrograde energy. What house in your Natal Chart holds the last three degrees of Pisces? Venus moves out of its own shadow on May 18. Your Sun sign position in the list below shows where your ego issues are focused. Your Moon sign position shows where your emotions, security concerns and involvment with home and family are focused. Your Ascendant sign position shows where you will ....

* Aspects of Venus ---> What does the condition of Venus tell you about your connections to love and money? ---> Aspects to Venus give information about areas of life that are strongly influenced by social skills, partnership affiliations, the natives ability to form and use relationships, how he expresses love -- and what happens as a result of those feelings. They show channels which can make use of his diplomatic skills -- or be hindered by his lack of them. They show how he can use his aesthetic sensitivities, his sense of beauty and style, and his artistic interests to help him get along more easily in life.


From the Blogs, Ezines
and Elsewhere

From EDA: Venus -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology March 24, 2021 Venus ---> Each planet is associated with at least one Zodiac sign & at least one house in the horoscope. Astrologers say planets rule certain Zodiac signs that are extremely congruent with the energy of the planet itself, & a planet is "accidentally dignified" when it occupies the house of its natural rulership. Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus & Libra. Taurus is the Fixed Earth sign; Libra is the Cardinal Air Sign. Venus is associated with the 2nd & 7th Houses of the natural horoscope -- which ....

From EDA: Mars & Venus ---> Everyday Astrology January 6, 2021 Mars & Venus ---> Some planet pairs seem designed to work together. Other pairs seem designed for complimentary roles. Some sound a theme, then the partner amplifies it. You learn a lot when you compare & contrast & examine each planet pair. Look for signs of how they play off each other, balance themselves across a spectrum of needs, cause each other trouble on the one hand, & come to the rescue on the other. Take Mars & Venus, the inner couple, the romantic lovers, in many ways a study in contrasts. First, obviously, one is masculine, ....

From EDA: Venus Retrograde ---> Everyday Astrology May 28, 2020 Venus Retrograde ---> Once Venus retrograde meets the conjunction with the Sun & passes behind it, she becomes the Morning Star, nestled in the dark blue to blue-gray to shell pink of the sunrise every day. You just won't see a Morning Star & an Evening Star on the same day. Once Venus gets close enough to the Sun to touch & go past, she seems to disappear for a couple of days. Change of costume, maybe. In any case, once the first days of subtle change are over, there's a markedly different mood associated with a retrograde planet.

From EDA: Venus in Mythology ---> Everyday Astrology August 31, 2021 Venus in Mythology ---> In mythology, Venus was the Roman Goddess of love, passion, sexual desire, physical pleasures, beauty & culture, fertility & victory -- that psychological high feeling of joy when you win a competition, reach a much-anticipated goal or basically get exactly what you want. When finally reality matches the longings & anticipation in your imagination (which, let's face it, doesn't happen very often) you've finally found the pure ecstasy of union with the principles of Venus. That's the ....
