Venus in Scorpio: Understanding This Mysterious Placement
As mentioned above, Scorpio-Venus usually doesn’t have the easiest time when it comes to love. Renstrom tells mindbodygreen that it’s not uncommon for them to deal with lies, drama, betrayal or mistrust earlier in life when they date people.
And as you can imagine, this can further fuel the fire in their already skeptical and withdrawn nature. According to AstroTwins, casual dating is probably not a priority for these people for this reason, as they prefer to “plunge into the depths of intimacy and learn all of their lover’s secrets,” even as they slowly open up about their own.
The good news is that after a while someone with Venus in Scorpio will finally be able to find someone they can truly trust and connect with, and often it will be someone who can meet them in those emotional depths. “They start bringing people into their lives who have also been through hard times and have a shared experience of understanding heartbreak,” he explains.
From there, he says, the intensity of Venus in Scorpio translates into shared intensity with their partner, forming an incredibly deep bond that can stand the test of time. This is a loyal placement, often for better or worse, but with the right person, the strength and durability of this bond is unmatched.
However, it is worth paying attention to jealousy, possessive feelings and even obsession. According to Renstrom, Venus-Scorpios are prone to jealousy, and not only that, they can also be the subject of intense jealousy.
As for compatibility, it’s always a good idea to consult a full astrological compatibility chart (also known as a synastry chart) to get the big picture, but Venus in Scorpio will probably do well with other watery Venuses (Cancer, Pisces, or another Scorpio). as well as the earth signs of Venus (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn).
