For those with venus in scorpio, how has this affected you? In one book it is stated as (because it is in exile) ...the worst sign for this planet, and of this position "Here her fire is completely fettered and either she is quite frigid or capable of vice without warmth, but always corrupted by the negative qualities of mars."

I can say from personal experience that I am not too emotional in a warm way, and I feel as though I have a notsowarm vibe...Im not the casual-touchy kind where you hug for no reason.

Also, in terms of aspects, I have an exact trine of mars in pisces, conjunct pluto, sextile neptune in capricorn.

For a Sagittarius, Venus in Scorpio = Business Smarts.
That doesn't mean you don't enjoy taking a gamble...
and you may find that people often confide in you too.

~Fulgour


I'm a Sag with Venus in Scorpio, have absolutely no business sense, and think gambling for money is just silly. That quote sounds very old-fashioned and judgemental to me....what century did you say it's from?Hi Maggie! Let me think... How long have we been friends..?
So then rather than me hold up a mirror to you, perhaps you
might enjoy taking a 'lighter' look into your own... sound fair?

Taking a gamble is different from making an impulsive cash bet,
which Moongold did make note of, and you ought to know too:
you have one of the keenest business minds of anyone I know.

Was there anything you wanted to add for Rainwolf's benefit?

I think how much you would enjoy gambling would depend on the other planets, say saturn in capi. I don't really 'enjoy' it because i know ill just lose it, but i dont think its stupid in a 'have a little' fun kinda way.

The confiding part and being sagittarius somewhat work out, because I like to be trusted in an honest enough way to have them confide. Basically when I feel I can be confided with, they are trusting which is honesty.

I think someone needs to say that it is really not the most useful thing to look things so simply as this. It is like saying in Tarot that the Page of Cups is a hopeless ponce to be standing on the beach dressed as he is looking at a goldfish in a cup.

In considering meaning in astrology you have to look at elements, signs, planets, houses and aspects..

Whilst Venus is a planet and regulates energy flow, how it does that depends not only on what sign it is in but what house and what aspects it has to other planets.

As a planet, Venus can influence how one expresses affection, feels appreciated and gives of self.

rainwolf, I would be reluctant to say how Venus in Scorpio might work for you without more details about where it is in your chart and what other influences come to bear on it.

I have Venus in Capricorn in the 1st house and my Venus forms a yod with Saturn and Uranus. Essentially this means that I tend to be reserved initially (1st House and Capricorn stuff). The aspects affect me in a nother way which is not important here. Venus tends to influence how one values beauty as well and she lightens up my Capricorn 1st House and Cap Ascendant quite wonderfully.

Once you understand how the nergy might work, then you can work consciously with it, using your awareness of all dimensions to influence how you act and how you experience.

PS - In all good faith and respect I cannot see any connection between Venus in Scorpio and gambling :D.

Edited to add that I think Fulgour meant something completely different by "gamble". :)

I should've known to put that! It is in my 5th house.

This is very general and does not take into account other aspects in your chart which could well influence how this placement is expressed.

Venus in Scorpio in the 5th House? You can be intense, passionate and somewhat obsessive in your attractions and relationships. Remember the two are different :). Venus in the 5th House would be immensely creative artistically. As you know, the 5th House is one of the locations of creativity. How does your creativity show itself?

It's the house of play as well and this aspect may offset some of the intensity of the Scorpio passion. This could show itself in a delightful playfulness in any area or just being good at various types of recreation. Do you play sport? I have a sense that you would and you're probably pretty good at it with the right balance of skill and passion.

You might like children as well. So parenthood (not at all out of the question) or working with kids might be worthwhile pursuits for you.

Hi Rainwolf,

I saw from the link to your website
that you had Venus in the 5th House,
but nothing came specifically to mind.

Worth considering is how having
Mercury in Scorpio affects this.
Mercury is always close to the Sun
but does very interesting things...

Venus in Scorpio....not good for the relationship department, can be troublesome, makes for a really nice person though, kind, generous....
FOR ME-
I have alot of Capricorn and Virgo in my natal- but do have Venus in Scorpio, which by the way is detriment. (opposite of the sign the planet rules).
Venus squares Mars in Aquarius and in one of my books it mentions that my giving nature can be my downfall....true. I lose out on alot for being nice or nurturing to those who don't really care. Specifically in relationships I will suffer from loss, mistreatment possibly even dangerous...and the like....again, true. The erie part to that is that sign/planet combination and the loss that it can represent, a death of a partner, experienced that as well.

The flip side to that is that good relationships will come later in life...well, it;s later now and after all the ups and downs, I'm happy with my S/O for a change :D
One thing that I have read that does not seem to fit- then again, not going past the aspect between Venus and the Moon (which is also in detriment in my chart & might explain this) is that I'm supposed to be social to the point of enjoying it.....NOT! I'm no good at a party with alot of people. I'm not one to be alone in a crowd and go out and make a friend, I'd rather watch everyone and laugh at them ;)

Rainwolf, what degree is your Venus at? Have you looked at the Sabian Symbol for it?

My venus is in 6 degrees scorpio, 46 seconds. I'll check that out...thanks!

Update: I found 6 degrees and what was said was amazing! Thanks again!

Hey Rainwolf
Glad that you got something from looking up the Symbol - they're amazing, to say the least.

I love Venus in Scorpio - must admit to owning one myself - it's not a particularly easy placement for the possessor or the possessed, but it's got it's very good points.

Moongold,

I had not heard of that description regarding Venus. I feel I need to reflect on it. There is something to it. Energy flow is definitely an issue for me.

I have Venus in Scorpio in the 8th house--kind of a double whammy. I also have Neptune conjunct Venus in the 8th in Scorpio. Neptune is at home there, so hopefully it balances Venus.


Lunalafey,

I relate to your comment, "I lose out on alot for being nice or nurturing to those who don't really care. Specifically in relationships I will suffer from loss, mistreatment possibly even dangerous...and the like....again, true." I read once that a lesson to learn is with whom to share and give and not to give to those that do not deserve the gift.


It is my understanding that a plus with Venus in Scorpio is that you benefit through partnerships. Wealth and other benefits come from partnerships you establish.

I also have Venus in Scorpio - in my case it's in the fourth house and conjunct the IC.

I would echo Moongold's point about judging in isolation. Traditionally, Scorpio is the house of Venus' detriment - so essentially it is weakened in this sign. However it would need to have a number of other debilities before you can start to consider it really unfortunate - in my case the Angular placement actually brings some dignity, which is then lost by being squared by Mars!

Venus does actually rule gamblers and gambling - again whether this turns out to be fortunate or unfortunate depends on its condition - where it is and what aspects it makes.

And of course one planet doesn't make up the whole chart - if you have a badly placed Venus but a wonderfully placed Jupiter, your life may still be fantastic.

I'm inclined to agree with this. I too am a Sag with Venus in Scorpio (10th house, 24 degrees Sco 7'33") and I SUCK when it comes to business...money in general...I should think that this is influenced by other aspects in my chart, however. I have problems being comfortable with showing affection to ppl readily, and it takes me a while to fall for someone but when I get attached to someone I get ATTACHED (not sure why but my emotions can get very intense and even overwhelming at times), and have trouble letting go. I also tend to attract relationships that carry drama..but I really feel that that's more because my Venus is conjunct Uranus.

My uranus is conjunct my IC and oppose my Chiron at the MC, being a lunar Aquarian with this placement, I like to wear black and red shoes, don't know why, but it does look good on me.

Anyway, venus influecnes affection and money, compulsive gambling comes from the affection fo money and wealth. just a thought that seemed important to share.
