Social niceties go out the door in favor of pure passion as Venus enters Scorpio December 5 and exits Libra, the sign of partnership, balance, compromise, & negotiation.
In Scorpio she becomes less sweet but more passionate, less agreeable and more persistent, less worried about fitting in and more fearless.
In short, Venus in Scorpio is far more apt to shock others through socially unacceptable behavior &/or taboo conversation!
This is the Scarlett O’Hara of energetic combinations, apt to rip velvet curtains off their rods in order to create a fine gown—and the illusion of wealth—to sweetly manipulate Rhett Butler into helping her family’s plantation thrive once again…
It takes a lot to see through these kinds of manipulations, so during the better part of this month from now until December 30, be on the lookout for your own behavior—or that of others—to take on greater intensity.
Passion, persistence, and pushing the boundaries of what your immediate society considers morally and socially acceptable behavior—particularly in the areas of sex and money!—is the order of the day…
They say the sign change from Libra to Scorpio is one of the most striking in that Libra energy, while it may prove indecisive, is usually concerned with making everyone happy. Scorpio energy, in contrast to culminating calm, likes to stir the pot, often just for the fun of it…
So “mixing it up” in relationship is to be expected during this period, as Venus in Scorpio can range from simple suggestive flirting to manipulation of giant proportions.
If you’re being chased by somebody Scorpionic now (or during December), it’s likely a do or die proposition to them. It’s just as likely, too, when Scorpio energy tangles with the goddess of love, that professing undying loyalty is the name of the game.
While some people thrive on this kind of drama in their love life, others sing about it…
Scorpio-influenced Bruno Mars (Pluto & South Node in Scorpio on his Midheaven, & Moon square Pluto) gives voice to this kind of “I’d die for you” energy in his song “Grenade”:
“To give me all your love is all I ever asked,
‘Cause what you don’t understand
Is I’d catch a grenade for you”
Throw my hand on a blade for you
I’d jump in front of a train for you
You know I’d do anything for you
Oooh, I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight right through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby,
But you won’t do the same…”
When you mix the two archetypes of Venus & Pluto (ruler of Scorpio)–as happens when Venus in Scorpio occurs–you get a recipe that stands a good chance of creating love triangles.
And J. Geils Band–here in what must be one of the first music videos ever (haha)–show themselves to be the epitome of 1970’s big hair boy bands in their classic song “Love Stinks!”
Check it out, but don’t laugh too hard, just listen to the lyrics, lol
Under the video’s comment section, someone (who shall remain anonymous), said this:
“I rejected the girl who had a crush on me cause I was chasing a girl who loved someone else. That girl I was chasing found out that her lover was gay. She went to me because she regretted rejecting me and wanted to date. It was too late for her because I fell in love with that girl who had a crush on me. Too late for me cause that girl fell in love with some guy who cheats on her. Much drama. Such love. It stinks.”
Doesn’t get much more Venus in Scorpio than that, eh?
