SCORPIO - "I DESIRE THEREFORE I AM."
Venus in Scorpio - September 9, 2018 until October 31, 2018. This transit of Venus is accompanied by a Retrograde (Rx), which will occur on Friday, October 5, 2018 at 3:05 PM EDT. As Venus will then reverse and go backward in degrees, it will re-enter the sign of Libra on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at 3:42 PM EDT. Venus in Libra Retrograde (Rx) will turn Direct on Friday, November 16, 2018 at 5:50 AM EDT and begin moving forward again and re-enter the sign of Scorpio on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at 12:02 PM EDT and remain until Monday, January 7, 2019 at 6:19 AM EDT.
Venus transits a Sun Sign right at about every 30 days and sometimes up to 60 days depending on its motion, meaning if it involves a Retrograde or not (like it does this time). This is a super-long transit of Venus through Scorpio due to that one month period of time from October 31st to December 2nd where Venus will return to Libra.
The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Venus reveals how we like to relate to our environment and other people. Venus also shows how you express your emotions in personal relationships, especially where marriage and Love are concerned. Venus will reveal if we are attracted to strong, sensual and intense relationships or if we prefer freedom and independence. It also indicates what we value, and therefore is linked with money, personal possessions, resources, creature comforts, aesthetic, social values and morals. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Here is a nice little piece of Venus trivia for you. Venus will never be more than two Sun Signs away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Scorpio, will have their Venus within 2 Sun Signs on either side of Scorpio or it will be in the sign of Scorpio. This means there are five possibilities that a Scorpio Sun Sign individual might have their Venus -- Venus in Virgo, Venus in Libra, Venus in Scorpio, Venus in Sagittarius or Venus in Capricorn. This helps you guess someone's Venus even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can rule out Venus in the opposite sign (Taurus) or the three signs on each side Taurus (Gemini, Cancer, Leo) and (Aries, Pisces, Aquarius). Cool huh?
Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus also rules our self-worth, personal finances, earned income, morals and values. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for something or someone. So when you think of Venus in your Natal Chart or Solar Return think "Love of" whatever sign is involved.
When Venus is in Scorpio, it is its detriment. That means it is out of place and it is 'inappropriate' energy. In fact, when you look at the Dignity and Debility Chart you will see that Venus is in its 'Home' placement when it is in the sign of Libra or Taurus because Venus naturally rules Libra and Taurus and that it is in its detriment in Scorpio.
Venus in Scorpio brings about an intense need for relationships. It also brings tenseness in relationships like everyone is walking on eggshells careful not to get stung by Love. Venus in Scorpio can easily cause jealousy, rage and cruelty within relationships. There is suspicion, accusations and a lack of trust. Is that any way to experience a relationship? This placement of Scorpio is awful and tense for unhappy couples, and awesome and intense for the happy couples. It is one or the other.
Those with Venus in Scorpio in their natal chart will want to know every little thing about their partner's mindset and will want to hear their innermost thoughts but yet may have a tendency to secrecy themselves. Those with Venus in Scorpio want their partner to be vulnerable with them but yet they won't be vulnerable with their partner.
This placement thinks of sex, sex and more sex. Venus in Scorpio brings on strong emotions and strong sexual desires, which can turn into passion, which can also lead to jealousy. This is something that everyone will need to monitor and control during this transit. Because the desires are so strong, you may find yourself trying to control someone else.
Women may use their feminine charm to gain power and manipulate the person of their desire.
Men or women with this placement have Love-hate relationships and once the relationship is over, it can become bitter and hateful. Stay Astrologized™.
