Because of the more Cardinal and Mutable elements at work in the astrology of the moment, I haven’t spent much time talking about Venus in Scorpio. Faithful to herself, she has remained present and powerful but only to those who want to access her.
Friday is the day of the Goddess Venus so let’s spend a few minutes looking at Venus in Scorpio.
In astrology, Venus symbolizes pleasure, beauty and what we value. What brings us pleasure can vary greatly depending on the person. For some its money or a beautiful home while others will find joy in a table full of food and good company. She rules over relationships and desires, commitments and marriage.
Venus’s domain is usually a comfortable and harmonious one. The contours are soft and pleasing to the eyes. The air feels good on the skin and there is a faint aroma of flowers in bloom like the breeze on a warm summer night. Venus is irresistibly attractive and confident.
On our quest for pleasure, we must not overlook the fierceness of Venus. The cautionary tale of Paris and the Golden Apple is perhaps a great example of her treacherous qualities. The strategic use of beauty and intelligent charm can be a great assets in social gatherings and even politics but the choices we make under her spell can also be disastrous.
