When love planet Venus enters the dark, sultry waters of Scorpio on October 8 (through November 1), it’s time to encounter the femme fatale within us all. Seduction becomes the prominent theme in the world of dating, mating and relating.
And with the game of dark seduction comes the potential for fatal attractions – so, tread carefully. Mystery and intrigue are the signatures of this Venus placement. In terms of beauty, you’ll notice a back-in-black resurgence: black eyeliner, fishnets and femme fatale-worthy sky-high heels. Secret affairs and covert coupling run rampant when Venus is in Scorpio. The more forbidden someone or something is, the more alluring.
All-things dark, decadent and dangerous fall under Scorpio’s domain, so expect to indulge in a bit of excess over the next few weeks. The intensity levels are cranked all the way up, passion dominates reason, and love takes on a do-or-die quality now. Are you willing to go to hell and back for the one you love? If not, you might want to rethink your relationship during the next few weeks lest you suffer the Scorpionic sting. Passion becomes a mandate: tepid interest could be the kiss of death to couplings in question. The desire nature of Scorpio runs deep.
“All-or-nothing” is the mantra with Venus in Scorpio. Jealousy, control and possessiveness are the major themes that arise. But if we can embrace the depths of our desire and darker emotions without trying to control the outcome or make someone fall in love with us, we can all benefit from the deeply transformative effects of Venus in Scorpio.
