Soaring Sensuality as Venus Enters Scorpio

Love planet Venus will be cruising through Scorpio from September 10 to October 7. Venus doesn't function to the best of her ability in this sign, and has difficulty operating positively. This combination can trigger obsessive, controlling behavior in relationships. We must remember now that the more we try to possess another, the less likely we are of experiencing any kind of real connection. The scorpion isn't the kindest creature on the planet and when threatened, it will aim to eliminate whoever is seen as the opponent.

Another symbol for Scorpio is the serpent, representing regeneration, female sexuality and snake venom. Though lethal when too much is ingested, venom was used in the ancient world to induce visions and cure ailments of the mind and spirit. Another Scorpio symbol, the phoenix, is a mythical bird that bursts into flames at the end of its life and rises from its own ashes. Scorpio is a sign that can stand a tremendous amount of intensity, and often seeks it out. It needs deeply cathartic healing experiences -- often.

Venus -- the goddess of love who feels at home in the peace-seeking signs of Libra and Taurus -- may not always fare so well in this sign of ruthless transformation and painfully honest experiences. But that doesn't mean there isn't some good wisdom to be gleaned from the combination.

If we can keep our obsessive tendencies in check, the depth and honesty that Venus in Scorpio can inspire is unparalleled. Like the first blush of new love, Venus in Scorpio wants to do nothing more than block out the world and spend days indoors with her lover. However, duty calls as Saturn -- also in Scorpio now -- is waiting in the wings to merge with Venus in her first few days through the sign.

Venus conjunct Saturn is a wake up call in our relationships, and it may seem like an ultimatum when it comes to commitment. We may be forced to define our relationships and get down to business -- but Scorpio is up for the challenge and wants to share everything, from living arrangements to the deepest, darkest secrets.

During this transit, make sure to stay focused on yourself by watching your own obsessive and/or compulsive behaviors, and know when to take a step back to regain your senses. If you can keep your side of the street clean, Venus in Scorpio can be an incredibly enriching time for all of your relationships.
