On 9 September 2018, Venus left Libra and entered Scorpio. The predictions were that romance would be more satisfying albeit, stormier. But then in mid-October, Venus dipped back into Libra again and from then until now, relationships should have been back on a more even keel.
Now, from 2 December 2018 until early 2019, we’re facing that steamy stuff again but contrary to what the astrology columns in magazines and newspapers would have you believe, we’ll all deal with it differently.
For most, passionate experiences and encounters may well be unforgettable but perhaps, not quite for same reasons.
Venus in Scorpio is where love and magic wed and when the magic is good, it can be healing for everyone. But when the magic is bad, passionate encounters could become nasty if not downright sadistic.
This is because in Scorpio, Venus doesn’t do anything in half-measures; she approaches everything that she wants – sex and money and gender politics – very seriously. At all costs, she intends to win her game.
One Scorpio friend told me that she’d die for her passions and I believe her. However, having a good dose of Gemini in my own natal, or birth chart, if I were to come up against an all-consuming passion such as my Scorpion friend fancies, I’d run in the opposite direction. The truth is that we all address our passions in different ways and with Venus in Scorpio, this could get messy because it’s inevitable that we’ll all not agree.
In order to come through this period in one piece, when it comes to passions, trust no one, not even yourself. Question everything, rationally.
