The goddess of love, after creating balance and harmony in her relationship, has now followed her lover into the underworld where still waters run deep and passion is intense, binding, and eternal.
In Libra, Venus asked us to look at where there was imbalance in our relationships---where one was giving more than the other, where there was a lack of communication or fairness. Libra is all about conflict-resolution and diplomacy. Now that we put in the necessary groundwork and built a solid foundation with those we care about, Venus wants us to dig even deeper. Venus in Scorpio is about intimacy and vulnerability. Scorpio wants to create a bond that is unbreakable.
The sign of Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, God of the Underworld. Pluto's love is passionate, intense, and courageous. Scorpio's favorite way to bond with their partner is skin to skin---body, breath, and soul intertwining until you can't discern where one ends and the other begins. For many, this level of closeness is terrifying. Flaws, imperfections, fears and insecurities are exposed and can be seen up close. For Scorpio, this type of bonding is essential.
Over the next few weeks while Venus is in Scorpio, we'll be asked to crack ourselves wide open and to risk being seen. Are you courageous enough to get that close? To speak your truth? To risk self-obliteration in the arms of a worthy lover in order to get closer to God? You might lose yourself, but you'll rediscover yourself in the process.
Venus in Scorpio is all-in, all or nothing, ride or die.
