When Venus sails through Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac, what does it mean for the collectives?
This astrological transit can be a tricky one to piece together – in astrology, Venus’ sign of rulership is Taurus which site right opposite Scorpio in the wheel for the Zodiac. This puts it in its sign of “detriment”.
Here, the love focus becomes laser-sharp, as matters of the heart gain an almost supernatural intensity. If you’re coupled up with a mate, don’t be surprised (or unnerved) if their devotion to you becomes a little scary. Demonstrative acts of affection (and possession) could look like them seeming to pop up wherever you look, plus multiple texting you all through the day to probe the innermost corners of your mind, asking about what you’re thinking, feeling, dreaming, and then some… it’s all in a day’s work! So don’t be scared off.
Despite this astrology bringing out our more jealous and possessive edges (that’ll be Scorpio’s fixed energy, shared with signs Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius) it will pass. On the other hand, the devotion you’ll likely feel from the other significant people in your life mean loyalty and dedication are top priorities. And with such a large amount of self-control, Venus in Scorpio can be just great for the discipline needed to work through things in your love life, and tackle any sticky spots in relationships without them erupting into arguments.
Between the sheets, Venus in Scorpio has a passion like no other. The intense sexual and erotic energy swirling through the celestial airwaves under this planetary alignment is always fun to make the most of! But it can also contain a huge amount of healing potential too. As the sign of transformation, Scorpio can re-birth us anew if we’re willing to take the plunge. So if you do let yourself get down, dirty and vulnerable with the right person, Venus in the sign of the Scorpion can be the catalyst for some mega sexual healing to occur, especially where the shadow side is concerned.
But if things start to feel a little heavy (as they can under this astrology) then be reminded that you have permission to lighten up! Watch a funny movie, go for a run (or a swim – Scorpio activates water) or stick on some music and work that Scorpio sensuality by dancing around the room!
