Venus in Scorpio: Queen of the Scorpions

by | Dec 28, 2010 | Scorpio, Venus the Love Goddess | 6 comments

“I’ve intimidated men my entire life and it has nothing to do with fame.” -Anne Hathaway (Venus in Scorpio)

“It’s not that I’ve had a lot of lovers, it’s that I never hide them. It’s a different thing. I have not one day of regret.” – Carla Bruni Sarkozy (Venus in Scorpio)

If you were born when Venus was in the constellation of Scorpio, the Scorpion…

Never, ever judge a Venus in Scorpio on looks alone! The inner life of a Venus in Scorpio born is complex. Holocaust survivor and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl once said, What is to give light must endure burning which sums up this Venus sign’s intense need for both passionate involvement in her relationships and creative life, along with the necessity of periodic reinvention. Stasis and security are anathema for Venus in Scorpio because she must burn to feel alive…burning off old self-concepts, false messages about her beauty, deservedness and self-worth.

A Venus in Scorpio in love…

Committed relationship, marriage, is the sacred container in which Venus in Scorpio experiences the depth of intimacy she craves and heals the damage she’s sustained to her trust. But to arrive there she must move to higher ground – rise above the  betrayals, secrets, violations, abuses and power imbalances she’s perpetrated or endured. In the bid for higher love, she must take back her beauty and power. She must reclaim her soul. When she does that, then, to the people she loves, she offers a sacred cauldron of safety, protection & kindness during the most difficult times. The sticky, painful and tough stuff we all face in life  -this Venus can handle it!

What this Venus sign needs to keep the love going…

Sure you can use the sexual charge of illicit, dangerous, or taboo relationship to ignite a tempestuous firestorm of passion. But that’s not intimacy, and intimacy is your deeper gift. Intimacy is a word wearing a disguise: Into me I see. This Venus sign needs to feel the impact of another’s energy body on their soul, and not just sexually.  That is, to be truly intimate with another, we need to let down our guard, to expose our fears, our vulnerability and our wounds. Eye contact helps, too! When we truly see into the others’ soul, we embrace all of them.
