Venus moves into Scorpio today where she will be for longer than usual, as she will retrograde from the 5th/6th Oct until the 15th/16th Nov, and during that time she will return to Libra from the 1st Nov until the 3rd of Dec.
The she is back in Scorpio until the first week of January.
This is quite “something” and not all that common.
Scorpio is the opposite sign to Taurus which is one that Venus “rules” so she is not always that happy there, and tends to get a bit intense and bitey at times in matters relating to love, also manipulative, although she is very attractive and very sexy for want of a better word.
Alluring, magnetic and dangerous are other words as this is where she could get a bit ruthless.
Passionate is definitely a word for Venus in this sign as she will throw away all that Libran “niceness” with the social etiquette and protocol that she can be so good at.
When she R’xs on the 5th/6th Oct, this will give us all a chance to go back into our history and retrieve something that we could have lost – which may be a feeling, or a skill, or a person, especially if we are Scorpio,Libran or Taurus.
This will be all about what we value the most so finding out what our values really are is part of this.
It could even help us to reassess our need for more material security and work out ways to get it.
We can figure out how much value to put on ourselves during the Venus R x period in Oct.
After that there will be a time of preparation or a trial period ahead for many of us, a time to work out where we really want to be and why, and with whom.
Some of us may withdraw from social life in that time, others will seek a different kind of social interaction in more intriguing and risqué places as we change course.
So I will repost some of this as a reminder when the time comes.
In the meantime we can search a bit deeper into our own relationships and look at what we are passionate about and who, what we value about self and others, and work on ways to express this. Along with Jupiter still in Scorpio Venus will help us to bring out our more hidden feelings to enjoy, and if there are any we miss then we get another chance later during Rx.
Scorpios will be getting a loving boost for sure, more romance, appreciation and perhaps money too.
Librans and Taureans get to enjoy their deeper feelings and what they value most, although they may find themselves a little out of their depth at times.
For the rest of us it could be any of the above but if we do fall in love during this period, we will sure feel it as it will go very deep.
As Venus is also square to Mars in Aquarius today – the physical attraction aspect is very strong, as is the possibility of clashes, so some sparks may fly in areas of love during these few days for Arians and Aquarians as well as Scorpios, Taureans and Librans, but others too if that’s where you are at in your life.
Some unique discussions and inspiration from within is around too, as Uranus in Taurus trines Pallas in Virgo, while Saturn also trines Pallas, forming a lovely earth grand trine in the heavens, to tell us it’s all going to be ok and is all for a higher purpose.
(Great for all the earth signs)
This grand trine is very grounding and validating for many of us as no matter what, we can feel on the right track with right motive, even if there is some intensity around that’s very hard to ignore.
About Janne’s Astrology: Your birth chart is a map of the heavens when you were born as viewed from our home planet Earth. Culture and location can influence the differences in two people born at the same time on this planet. We use 10 planetary bodies including the sun and the moon to interpret a birth chart, also including Uranus, Neptune and Pluto — relative new comers to astrology and there are still traditional astrologers who will not use them.
The planets have unique energies that affect us in similar ways that the moon does with tides and cycles here on earth, including tectonic plate movement. At the time of birth the heavens imprint our very natures and set the patterns for our future with “promised” events unfolding as the heavenly bodies continue to move around the zodiac in their transits, some moving faster than others. Different astrologers use different methods, some taking into account the precession of the equinoxes, some using ancient techniques and some using more modern. I use a mix of both.
