Venus in Scorpio
Sensual, magical, mystical, and erotic, this is the tantric position of Venus. This native wants to receive passion and intensity in their lives – an elevation of the senses to a high art. The “urge to merge” is strong in this placement and these natives greatly desire to be in sacred union with another.
Scorpio is a complicated sign and it can take a certain amount of mucking around in the underworld before the true expression of this position is revealed. In its shadow, Scorpio is distrustful, suspicious, and can be overly attached to the darker side of life. The journey for this native is to find the light in the shadows. Once revealed, this is the genesis for powerful life force expression. The desire for intense experience morphs into a passion for life in all its complexity.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, this is the emanation of Isis through Bast. Bast is the archetype of the Sacred Sexual Priestess. It is her mission to awaken within us our Holy Longing – our desire to move out of stuck places in our lives and into new experiences. The Priestesses of Bast were both tantric healers of wounded souls and midwives for new life. Their temples were places of healing, where sacred ceremonies were held to release the pain of darkness as well as welcome the light of new life.
Venus/Isis will remain in the emanation of Scorpio/Bast from September 10 to October 7. During this time, we stand at the threshold of transformation. Open to your Holy Longing and make a leap into change.
