Ahh, Venus, how we adore you! She rules over our relationships, our concept of beauty, our love style and everything we associate with being “nice” in our opinions. So what do we do now that Venus is in Scorpio? Do we bang anything that moves? Do we cut out everything unpleasent in our lives? Do we change how and who we love completely?
I recently had a discussion about this shift with another astrology-curious friend, and I mentioned to her that since Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, which is associated with sex, death and transformation, that many things ruled by Venus would be experiencing these shifts.
Like what? Well, all relationships are a matter of Venus because she shows us how we display affection and appreciation. You may find old friendships, lovers or maybe even a long-term relationship is no longer aligned with your life. Scorpio is working in your life to transform you from tolerating your existing paradigm to THRIVING. The old relationships that were waiting to crumble will likely be expedited by this Scorpion energy, and you may find it intolerable to associate with these people who need to GTFO of your life. Let them go in peace, as they are probably experiencing a similar perspective shift about you.
It can be a painful time, and though these people are not physically dead, it may still incite a period of greiving of what has been lost, and that is totally ok. Greive for the loss, go through the stages, but MOST IMPORTANTLY you must heal and become better than you were before. Don’t bother dumping toxic relationships if you are just going to find new ones. Have the courage to listen to your intuition and act accordingly from now on.
Venus is also associated with our self-worth, ability to earn and even jewelry or fine clothes. Positioned in Scorpio, she helps us to reconcile our sexualities and material worth by aligning to what truly feels right and good for our highter selves. Scorpio is a pretty intense energy, and you are not going to win over her insistence to transform. Allow yourself the space and compassion to eliminate the old baggage weighing you down, which in turn will leave more room for the things we love and are truly passionate about (hey-o, Venus!) This may include a physical purging of things taking up space in your home… might be a good time to have a garage sale or donate your unwanted goods to a charity/thrift store. It can also bring about questioning your self-worth… maybe you don’t charge enough for your goods and services. Maybe you don’t accept praise without doubt. Whatever is holding you back is getting chucked; just do it!
