Venus is the planet of beauty and charm, recently moving out of its home sign of Libra to enter the deep and dark sign of Scorpio at 11:16p PDT last night, September 10th, 2013.
As it does so, Venus is not comfortable in its new surroundings. Yet now in Scorpio, Venus has a job to do, and an important job at that.
With all of the challenging energy in play right now, you may find yourself being asked to go into some really dark depths of your own inner workings. Especially on the emotional and spiritual levels, you may find that you need to face a great deal about yourself that you don’t really like. Some of you may find this easy, as you have a knack for knowing and dealing with the worst of yourself. Others of you may find that this is excruciating because you avoid your darkness like the plague. This is where this placement of Venus comes in handy.
Venus in Scorpio brings forward “partners” who can help you get to the bottom of your darkest depths. It also brings partners who can help pull you out of them.
Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs because many people don’t realize that it is actually the most emotionally vulnerable of them all. It deals with the extremes of our lives, and therefore, it will make you face matters of birth and death, angels and demons, all or nothing, power and mercy, sexuality and spirituality, etc. Scorpio will take you there, wherever there is. There is no halfway or gray area. With Scorpio, you’re either all in or all out.
That is why Venus in Scorpio is such a profound placement and has the potential to be such a powerful influence at this time. The people you connect with on a one-on-one basis now may either help you or be the reason for you to transform your life. They are your partners in transformation, and because of them your life may never be the same.
As we discussed in the previous post, it’s getting more and more difficult to avoid our individual and collective demons. We are in a time at which we each and all are being asked to come to terms with all we have been and done to get us to where we are now. In doing so, we are taking on the challenge of choosing what we are committed to creating and manifesting now and forward. This is our chance to change course and to move toward healing, health, wellness, and lives that are practically functional in and for service to a world that practically and ethically works.
Under the Virgo Sun (now through September 22nd), in order to heal and restore our individual and collective health and wellness, we must get to the root of what ails us. Under the upcoming Libra Sun (as of September 22nd), in order to heal or begin our connections with others, we must get to the root of why we are connected or connecting in the first place. The partners we choose for this Venus in Scorpio journey can help us do just that.
Keep in mind that Venus in Scorpio will conjunct Saturn in Scorpio and the North Node of the Moon in Scorpio in transit on September 18th, and this could be a solidifying moment for you in this journey. Be conscious of what you are asking for during this time especially regarding the functionality of your daily life and your daily health and well-being, as you may very well lock it in. Though you have free will and can always change your course in life, you may find the course that you choose to take on now may be harder to change than usual later.
Venus in Scorpio reminds you that you don’t have to go into your deepest and darkest depths alone. You can find someone to help you through them…if only you allow yourself to trust someone enough to help you through. Your ideal partner for this journey will likely be clear or come clear to you, and it may not be who you’d expect it to be, so keep an open mind and an open heart.
The two of you may be about to begin quite a ride.
Venus will be in Scorpio through October 7th.
Thank you for reading and sharing Signs and Numbers. Until next post…
