Venus in Scorpio
Updated: Apr 3, 2021
No one does sexy like Venus in Scorpio. Seductive and passionate, these individuals value the intimacy that comes from deep connection. This is the position of the tantrika and daka, trained in the sexual arts. In this expression of Venus, the Scorpio “urge to merge” is powerful.
Not all Venus in Scorpio individuals will relate to this. For some their powerful desire nature goes underground, submerged in the deep subconscious by societal prohibitions against freely owning the power that comes through sexual expression. For these individuals, this energy can feel dangerous or even distasteful. In its shadow, Venus in Scorpio can be suspicious of others. Distrust can lead to manipulative behavior unconsciously designed to create a feeling of safety.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Scorpio is allied with the cat goddess Bast. Bast uses life force energy to awaken our Holy Longing – our willingness to do what must be done to embrace the yearning of our soul. This includes allowing something to die – releasing that which is complete, despite our fear. Venus is allied with Isis, Queen Mother of Heaven. The synthesis of these two powerful archetypes manifests as the sensual, seductive, and transformative aspect of the Divine Feminine, adept at using her charisma to influence people and situations. These individuals often become a catalyst for transformation, pushing others toward deep change in their lives.
Venus/Isis will transit the emanation of Scorpio/Bast from November 21 until December 15. The exit of Venus from Scorpio will bring completion of Scorpio season, a time of diving deep into that which is hidden under the surface of things.
