Venus enters Scorpio
– September 10, 2021 (21:39 GMT+1)
The planet of love and relating, Venus, dives deep into Scorpio’s emotional waters this weekend. Venus in Scorpio is in her sign of detriment. This is because Venus is associated with all things lovely.
Venus is kindness and grace personified, she loves partnership and sharing, beauty and harmony. When Venus enters Scorpio, she’s venturing into the underworld, the dark places, what lies beneath.
Venus in Scorpio – Passion & Power
Therefore, Venus in Scorpio has a reputation for being a temptress, the femme fatale of the zodiac, sexy, sultry and desirous of all things taboo.
This includes all emotions, the good as well as the bad. She can be a jealous Venus, who wants what she can’t have, who becomes obsessed with love or sex and is drawn towards temptation.
This is one side of Venus in Scorpio’s seductive ways. However, Venus rules art as well as love and Venus in Scorpio finds the beauty in decay, death and all that fades away.
Remember too that Scorpio rules power and transformation. Therefore, this can be a wonderful transit for women, enabling you to channel your feminine energy into extraordinary feats that lead to transcendence.
Scorpio’s task is to decide how to use its power, not to descend into evil but to use its force for good effect in the world.
Venus & Women
Venus’ glyph is the planetary symbol for women. In previous years, Venus in Scorpio has coincided with key developments in the #metoo movement.
This year, there are already major crises emerging around the world with women at the heart. There can be a theme of oppression of women when Venus is in Scorpio.
You can’t help but be terrified by the plight of women and girls in Afghanistan. Scorpio is the star sign linked to sex and the part of the body that Scorpio rules in astrology are the genitals.
In other parts of the world too, men primarily are trying to take control of women’s bodies by implementing draconian anti-abortion laws – Texas being a prime example.
Note that Venus in Scorpio has some major planetary aspects over the next few weeks. Here’s the sequence:
- Venus square Saturn (authority/rules) – September 10, 2021
- Venus opposite Uranus (rebellion/splitting off) – September 23, 2021
- Venus trine Neptune (hope/dreams) – September 29 2021
- Venus square Jupiter (freedom/beliefs) – September 30, 2021
- Venus sextile Pluto (force/transformation) – October 2, 2021
We can expect the issues affecting women worldwide are going to be strong & foreground now and over the next few weeks. Venus remains in Scorpio until October 7th.
Venus in Scorpio is a reminder that women need to feel empowered and not repressed.
On a personal level, notice whether it’s time for you to reclaim your passion, your hidden depths, your full emotional range. Be the power and harness Venus in Scorpio’s strength.
