2021 Venus in Scorpio will transform your love life

Published in The Scribe

     The pleasures and pains of love are about to get a lot more intense. Venus, the planet of love and relating, enters enigmatic Scorpio on Sept. 10, bringing with it a dramatic change in the way we relate to others. 

     Socially speaking, we find more meaning in intimate moments during Venus in Scorpio, and we take romance and relationships very seriously. It’s all about passion and private time. Deep emotional exchanges and one-on-one conversations (along with secret, late-night makeout sessions) are much more attractive than large group gatherings full of superficial conversation. 

     Ardent affections and torrid flirtations are the essence of Venus in Scorpio, but it’s a feast or famine type of deal. As much as we ache for an emotional-turned-physical connection with another, we’re also content holding out until such a connection arrives. To Venus in Scorpio,  there must always be a purpose to the pleasure we seek, otherwise we see no point in it. 

     Jealousy, envy and possessiveness are unfortunate by-products of Venus in Scorpio, but as long as you’re aware, these behaviors shouldn’t cause too much damage. Of course how and where 2021 Venus in Scorpio will affect you depends on your zodiac sign. So without further adieu:

Your 2021 Venus in Scorpio Horoscope 

Aries ♈

     Venus in Scorpio sees you diving deep into the emotional bonds you share with other people. Affections are intensified and there may be a crisis that begets some begging and pleading on your end. The shame of having to beg for love propels you to dig into your emotional depths… 

Taurus ♉

     Venus is in your 7th House and she’s attracting admirers left and right. You are at once mysterious, flirtatious, and oh-so alluring. Flaunt it while you can, just watch that you don’t get too obsessed with their attention. Play your cards right and you could end up with a soulmate… 

Gemini ♊

     Venus is in your 6th House, which isn’t the sexiest of transits, but it can work wonders for your work life. It’s easier for you to concentrate on your to-dos and responsibilities during this time, and investigative research is a breeze. Sparks may fly between you and a fellow employee… 

Cancer ♋

     Venus in Scorpio brings a much needed boost to your self-esteem. Like magic you attract an audience of admirers who make you feel recognized and important. This, in turn, makes you friendlier and more confident. The more you radiate these positive vibes, the more friends and fans you can attract… 

Leo ♌

     Venus in Scorpio has you eschewing dinner dates and coffee hangouts with your beau for relaxed nights at home. All you want to do is Netflix and chill, and you probably should. You’re extra sensitive during this transit and need as much time away from people as you can get…   

Virgo ♍

     Unlike Leo, Venus in Scorpio has you itching to interact with new people. Bored with the dude-bros in your neck of the woods, you may take the plunge and go back on Tinder or Bumble. Except this time, you’ll only swipe right on the people who seem emotionally open…  

Libra ♎

     Venus is in your 2nd House and this transit is very beneficial for connecting with your deeper wants. You now have the universe’s permission to be quietly greedy about your comfort. To do this, you have to take the time to find out what you like and what feels good…  

Scorpio ♏

     Venus is in your 1st House and she is gently bathing you in a glow of good vibes. The love-and-pleasure planet makes you equal part charming, magnetic, and downright irresistible to every onlooker. For the next three weeks, you are a goddess and all should be bowing at your feet…  

Sagittarius ♐

     Venus in Scorpio is in your 12th House of spiritual romance. Empathy and creativity surge, as does your fervent desire for a soulmate. This transit pacifies any lingering feelings of loneliness or isolation, but you’ll still pine for that unrequited love. Hey, at least your imagination is fruitful… 

Capricorn ♑

     Venus in Scorpio sits in your 11th House of friends and aspirations, so peer groups or social circles could lead to a love match. You’re only interested in them if they are friendly and have similar life goals. Otherwise, you won’t find them half as charming as they find you… 

Aquarius ♒

     Authority figures are super attractive thanks to Venus in Scorpio, but you keep your fondness for “the boss” quiet. This is because some people (like, ahem, your parents) may find your older person crush taboo. Really, it’s this person’s maturity and wisdom that you find irresistible. That, and their status… 

Pisces ♓

     Venus in Scorpio has you seeking emotional interactions with people who are from different backgrounds. Ever the idealist, you mistake any intense spiritual discussion as proof of a soulmate connection. Whether they’re your soulmate or not, you’re in seemingly stable high spirits. Just remember: The love you seek supersedes words…
