Venus in Scorpio

If you have Venus in Scorpio, in matters of love, you desire and crave a deep, intense, and passionate relationship. In love, nothing short of a merging of souls will satisfy you. Venus in Scorpio yearns for the undying love of Romeo and Juliet or Heloise and Abelard. Individuals with this Venus sign are the most intense, passionate lovers of all. The bonds you form are strongly emotional and may be described as possessive. You can get very jealous regarding loved ones. Uncontrolled jealousy and possessiveness may help destroy the relationships you are most intense about. You have a tendency to "marry" whatever or whoever captures your heart and it is difficult to let go of it or them for any reason. You can hold on to one love for a lifetime. High demands are placed on your partners.

You are somewhat suspicious of even platonic, friendly relationships your partner has. If you are ever betrayed, you are capable of hating with as much force and intensity as you once loved. You are attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them. You have a sultry charm, a personal magnetism. Although your feelings run deep, you may have trouble expressing them. Once burned you never give another a second chance. It is all or nothing at all. There can be a deep religious devotion which can serve as an outlet for your overcharged emotions. You need to learn the value of self-control. Misuse of the creative force in previous lifetimes has forced you to again deal with issues surrounding sex, passion, desire, and regeneration. This position stimulates your creative ability and brings infatuations, misalliances, and love affairs.

With Venus is Scorpio you love sex and relating sexually, and need intensity, depth, power, personal growth and transformation in love and relationships. You know how to use your intense relationships to further your own ends and get what you want, but have difficulty being an equal or sharing power with intimates. Thus you may frequently change and refine your relationships, but discard them when they no longer serve your purpose. You love to get deep under the surface of things and explore the mysterious and the unknown. You can be manipulative, but mask self-centeredness with an outwardly friendly manner. Your love life and intimate relationships are often an arena in which power and control are played out. Your karma in this life is tied with self-will and love. In general, your personal values and your conception of love need to evolve and be transformed.

You are extremely magnetic to the opposite sex and very passionate, yet may be inhibited as well. If true, don’t you be taken in by your intense sexuality: this persona may be covering up unconscious elements in your psyche you have yet to deal with. You feel a need to control your intimate partners, and have difficulty relating to them on an equal level. When someone gets close to you, you can become fearful of compromise and cooperation because they entail an element of letting go of the control with which you feel you need to protect yourself. A somatic therapy would be ideal to help you become more conscious of these childhood patterns. Once aware and independent of them, your self-work can release you to be a guiding light to others.
