If you were born with Venus in secretive Scorpio, your approach to love is seductive, soulful, and intense. Casual dating is so NOT your jam. You prefer to plunge into the depths of intimacy and find out every one of your lover’s secrets. Sharing your own, however, may take years. Deeply private and mysterious, you hate to feel vulnerable or exposed. Since trust does not come easily when you have Venus in Scorpio, you might choose a partner who is an open book and knows how to create a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to bare your soul.
Venus is "in detriment" in Scorpio, which is a somewhat challenging position because it falls opposite to Taurus, the sign that the love planet rules. As such, you may have to sift through a few more twists and turns than most before you master Cupid’s game. While you search for your "twin flame," you’re sure to have your share of wild and dramatic affairs, some that would make a sex worker blush! Although you tend to be "all or nothing" when it comes to commitment, erotic encounters are a different story. Your libido has a mind of its own—especially in a darkened bar, hot tub (or any body of water), or when you’re far from home and can maintain more of an anonymous profile. A powerful attraction can literally overtake your common sense, and you can get lost in a heady space during sex. Your secrets may stay locked in the vault forever, not even to be shared with your Sex and the City brunch crew…which might be for the best. Warning: With Venus in this playing-for-keeps position, you may be guilty of trying to turn a hookup into a husband (or wife), projecting soul mate qualities onto someone you’ve only just met. But when you feel deeply connected to a partner, you will give and share everything you have. Scorpio is the sign of joint ventures and merging resources, so expect a magical melding of bank accounts and living spaces.
When you feel hurt or rejected, you may come across as withholding and even downright cold—and the loss of a relationship can devastate you more than most. Hell hath no fury like a Venus in Scorpio who has been cheated on! Pro tip: Skip the revenge fantasies and let karma handle it. (Just watch Lemonade on repeat for catharsis.) Ultimately, you’ll rise, like the phoenix that represents the highest vibration of Scorpio, and continue your quest for a spiritually aligned partner. When it comes to your sartorial flair, you have the most discerning of eyes. You may even work as a stylist or designer! Shopping is like a treasure hunt for you, whether sourcing hand-woven pillows in Mexico or the perfect LBD. Though you’re a pro and choosing color palettes, noir is your go-to hue from lingerie to dresses to make up to leather goods.
