Astrology Myth or Truth? Venus or Mars in Scorpio Make You Irresistible

Venus or Mars in Scorpio Makes You Irresistible

Scorpio is associated with sex. Specifically, the merging that occurs during sex. It’s a magnetic sign, drawing people in with its promise of raw intimacy. If you have the planet of desire (Mars) or love (Venus) in this sign, certain assumptions have been made: you’re a femme fatal, a sex machine. At the very least, you have no troubles finding a partner. Or so the story goes…

The Mars in Scorpio/Venus in Scorpio Impression

Mars in Scorpio radiates intense sexual energy. You can be sexually fearless and dive into the deep end of a relationship. The planet of desire is in a sign that wants to push through limits, right to the core. Exploring taboos is your thing, and sex is not just a physical act; it’s a revelation.

Venus in Scorpio wants to relate on a profound level. You give off a seductive vibe and attract others without even trying. Because Scorpio involves intimacy, you carry an undertone of sexualized energy (even if you’re not attracted) when getting to know someone. There’s a mystery about you, a promise of “more” that people find deeply intriguing.

  1. This is absolutely TRUE!!! My Sag bestie with a Leo moon is a Venus in Scorp. LMBO!!! I’ve watched how effortlessly she attracts guys. It’s like they cannot resist her and don’t let her really be attracted to them in return. lol

    Being a Pi major and Taurus minor…we make one sexy pair of friends and it is OH SO FUN!! She draws em in with her fun sex appeal and bright energy while they’re trying to figure out if I need to be rescued or how much money it takes to maintain a life with me. Its sooooo hilarious. We have actually had guys stand in front of us trying to choose while in truth, neither one of us were interested.

    She’s happily coupled up now, so those days ARE behind us. However, only a Venus in Scorp can have both a husband (soon to be ex who is licking his wounds) and a doting boyfriend without missing a SINGLE beat. Lucky woman. SMH lol

    as i was reading this, it seemed to me that with just slight tweaks, this could be someone with a chart ruler of venus or mars with scorp in the 1st and 2nd. venus rules my chart; scorpio is a big part of my first and rules my 2nd and from my understanding of these houses, our projections from them could be quite similar… just not so full on as this

  3. Jassi J says:

    ` there’s surely dormant long periods of celibacy, Mars in Scorpio is square with Venus in Leo, I am totally fixed but it does not lead into anything. Sun in Leo 12th and Virgo Ascendant makes for looking not taking action.

  4. I have venus and mars conjunct in scorpio in my 3rd house. This post is spot on!!

  5. @Ms.Teeq1974
    Sounds like she knows how to handle that considerable energy.

  6. @mary beth
    1st House is identity, naturally ruled by Aries. 2nd House is personal resources (emotional and financial) and security, naturally ruled by Taurus. So yes, the mix would be similar. With the difference that 2nd House Scorp would ensure their security with Scorpio’s magnetism (rather than focusing on one on one relationships).

  7. @Jassi J
    Thanks for sharing this. Your Mars/Venus square would indicate a conflict between the drive to understand your desires and the need to be appreciated by others. It’s as if the inwardly focused (Scorpio)/outwardly focused energies hit a stalemate. Of course, that hidden 12th House Sun (ruler of your Venus) would have a lot to do with it as well.

  8. @KL
    Thanks! That’s a hefty dose of Scorpio you have. Intense analysis leading to communication (3rd House) is part of how you express that energy. But the communication is probably measured out to a select few (private).

  9. I think I have a funny story about this. So… I am very open/honest when I talk about sex, even with strangers. A friend’s roommate was detailing her sexual history one night in the hopes of figuring out why the guys leave her after the deed is done. At the end of her rant, she says “I’m sure the same thing always happen to you, Quiche”

    My Sag mouth almost said something really offensive to defend my honor, but I ended up telling her no, I have no experience with that since I’ve only been with two (Leo) men in relationships. Needless to say, she was shocked (and angry) that I wasn’t as “experienced” as I seemed and that I was in the middle of a long celibacy spell lol

    I also have an unhealthy obsession with Scorp energy and their dark looks, but become bored with their flimsy games regarding trust issues within 5 months. And I’m sure that they get bored of no sex.

    Sun Sag/12th, Venus Sag/1st, Mars Scorp/10th and Pluto in Scorp/11th
    Venus sextile Mars
    Mars conjuct Pluto
    Venus semi-square Pluto

  10. I have Tropical: Mars in Scorpio, Sun in Scorpio, Mercury in Scorpio, Uranus in Scorpio (stellium)…. Venus Cap. 2′ conjunct Desc Sag.

    Western Sidereal: everything the same except my sun sits at 29′ libra and uranus in libra….Venus in Sagittarius Descendant Sagittarius

    These two quotes definitely describe me….

    “….sex is not just a physical act; it’s a revelation…. it has to be the right partner, someone who is capable of meeting your needs…”

  11. Although Manfriend doesn’t have Venus or Mars in Scorpio, he has a Venus/Pluto Libra conjunction in the 8th house. There is a reason I call him Sexy Beast or D- – – the Devil. He seems very easygoing at first, but he has a quiet intensity that draws me in.

    Ex husband was Sun/Venus in Scorpio and he did have a certain magnetism and was relentless in pursuing me. I have Venus 0 degree in Sag sextile Libra Pluto. I sort of can relate. I am very much all or nothing person. I told (not asked) Manfriend after a month of dating that were were exclusive and he happily obliged which in hindsight was bold thing to order a man with Sun/Mars conjunction in Leo to do. But, my Pluto conjuncts his Venus/Pluto.

  12. In response to RJD I also have Sun, Mercury, Mars and Neptune in Scorpio, also Juno in Scorpio (3rd house). I just now starting to learn more in-depth astrology on my own, so I don’t really have a good understanding of all the terminology. I’ve read up on how this translates with my current relationship with my Pisces man. I realize I have alot of scorpio (good/bad?) which I embrace! We both are Cancer Moons, he also has scorpio in Neptune (as I do). His Juno is in Virgo, which is how I ended up here….trying to find any compatability info. Any advice? Any websites that I might go to? THANKS…..ANYONE?!?

  13. @Dee

    Hey girl heeeey. Mars, Merc, & Pluto in Scorp so I identify with your pride. I really like astro.cafeastrology.com for free reports (and cheap ones). They also have some learning tools when you go to the home page.

  14. Cap with mars in scorpio..so true on ‘meeting my needs’ sexually. If a man isn’t/can’t, i get grumpy or shall i say ‘sexually frustrated’. hahaha

    I never have to be real out-going or the loud type, as I am quite quiet and reserved by nature(cap placement) and dress as such, but somehow men have always been attracted to me. A friend told me once its because even if i don’t open my mouth I give off this ‘sexual vibe’ even if i don’t mean to.

    I find it to be more of a curse sometimes..

  15. Yeah…I have Mercurius venus neptun sun and mars all in shorpio…in 4Th and mars in 5th house, and Ac in Leo squere venus conj.mercurius and also squere Jupiter in 7.in Aquarius…and I feel it as very difficult aspect pattern…I never know what I realy want or need or feel…

  16. @ Quiche….Thanks for reply. Ironically (or not!) I’ve used that site many times, both their free and purchased reports, it was VERY helpful to say the least! I was wondering if there is a way to check the JUNO compatabilities? Maybe its not something that can be done? Any other suggestions? Of course when you put something into GOOGLE it takes you to 3000 other sites with interesting info!

    Thanks again!

  17. @Dee

    Hm.. I don’t know about Juno compatibilities, but astrotheme has a lot of info about it on their site. That’s where I first learned about it, but I haven’t tried one of their compatibilities. They also give the Sabian symbol for your own degrees.

    I also find this that may be very helpful: http://astrologystudy.blogspot.com/2011/02/juno.html

  18. @Quiche……the WHAT symbol?!? LOL, like I said I don’t know all the terminology yet! Is that something worth checking out?

  19. @Dee

    I guess they are intuitive interpretations of the 360 degrees of the zodiac. The natal charts on Astrotheme give the Sabian symbol for the degree.

    So my sun is in Sag at 2 and the Sabian symbol at 2 degrees is:

    At the top of the stairs of a temple, a Madonna blesses worshippers and enemies alike

    It’s just another interpretation of the placement.

  20. Great article!!!
    I am rising Scorpio with Mars and Venus in Scorpio in 12th house, also Moon ( 11th house) and Mercury in Scorpio:). And this is soooo correct about scaring off people with the natural intensity I have, even if they are drawn to me at the begining.

  21. I have Venus on my DC in Scorpio and Mars in Scorpio conjunct, NNode and Uranus across my 5th/6th House cusp. NNode being in the 5th. Mercury conjuncts Pluto in Libra across 4th/5th houses. Mercury in 4th. Venus/Pluto mutually receive. Taurus on 12th house and 1st house cusp, which is conjunct Jupiter 00’02” Gemini opposing Venus in Scorpio.

    I will strip you down naked and expose you. I will penetrate through your web of complexity. Very few are compelled to see the truth. Those that do, will make it through, stronger. Changed by each new perception. Most people struggle to be true, lying not to me, but to you. Dishonest to yourself. To me, that’s weak and so not appealing. Don’t you want to explore your hidden powers and strength within? Why do you look uncomfortable? Are you scared? Tell me honestly… You can’t? Boring…

    Beck
    I am a lot the same , I have Venus in Scorpio and I’m Scorpio Rising, I’ve been accused of putting everyone under the microscope. LOL

    The wonderful thing is for me is my husband gives me no reason to love anyone else. I mean, once I put him under the scope, I began to love him more and more, the more secrets I learn about him the more I respect him. He has pisces in venus, omg what a combo, he’s taurus rising, its to find an Aqua so sensitive to other peoples needs but I found one :)

    Its weird in the 3 years I’ve known him I’ve never had a reason to doubt him or suspect anything, so sometimes it really pays to put someone under the microscope, its not always negative :)

  23. I have Venus and Mars conjunct in Scorpio, in the 12th house. Plus Scorpio Ascendant and Mercury in Scorpio (although in 1st house). The only thing I don’t have is Lena’s Scorpio Moon!

    Maybe it’s all just too much scary Scorpio energy for men to even approach me, which they very, very rarely do. Or should I blame my 7th house Saturn? Sigh… I just can’t win when it comes to love.

  24. Your article says, “Those that are brave enough to get involved with you will be permanently transformed.” I say, change “transformed” into “emotionally damaged” and you may be correct. lol :D

    Venus/Mars in Taurus here. Getting involved with someone with Venus in Scorpio is/was like signing up to get your mind/heart turned inside out, without any anesthesia! Scorpio in Venus, from my numerous experiences with friends and partners, are SO dramatic and OTT! A bit of drama can be stimulating, but all the time? This Venus/Mars in Taurus girl likes stability and emotional dependibility. That may sound boring to some (as it rid to me at one point), but it’s nothing like the disaster caused by Venus in Scorpio people. Too messy.

  25. And p.s. I have a Scorpio rising and a Pisces Sun, so I am not intimidated by intense water signs, but even I know when Scorpio Venus is too much (even for themselves). Tone it down, guys/gals!

  26. Venus Scorpio in the 1st here. I find that like intense, earth jarring types of passion. If I don’t sense it in a woman, they kind of put me to sleep. I can pick up whether or not a woman has some spunky type of energy (Fire and/or Water) .

    Venus Scorpio loves taboo, and looks for the root causes behind things. Because of this there is a natural discomfort in seemingly superficial social settings.

    There is an intense aura that I think kind of smacks people and they are basically attracted to the intrigue, but ultimately are strongly attracted or repulsed.

  27. Good grief, Holly. You’re accusing Venus in Scorpio people of being too much drama and disaster, yet yours is the most over-the-top, overly dramatic post in all the comments. Way to stereotype everyone with Venus in Scorpio. I don’t doubt that you’ve had some bad experiences, but people are more than just planets in signs. Adolf Hitler had Scorpio rising with Venus and Mars in Taurus — like you do! — but NEVER would I claim that you, or anyone else with similar astrological “traits”, is anything like him. No reasonable person would ever declare such a thing. Life isn’t what you’re dealt with at birth, planets or otherwise, it’s what you do with what you have that makes you who you are. I’m sorry you’ve had such bad experiences with certain Scorpio Venus people, but please don’t blame all the rest of us for the actions of those others.

  28. Correction to my last comment: most charts show Hitler having a late degree Libra Ascendant. The first one I ran across had a 1 degree Scorpio Ascendant, but I don’t know what chart system they were working with. Venus conjunct Mars in Taurus still applies, though.

  29. Drama and Criticism says:

    Does anyone know what effect retrograde motion has on venus in scorpio? how would it be different from direct venus in scorpio?

  30. i think scorpio moon (and sun / pluto) energy is very similar in styles of relating and trust issues from my experience with having those and interacting with men with scorpio venus… it seems any scorpio energy in the personal planets is gonna want to go deep, and a lot of people can’t handle it…

  31. Yes, the intensity of getting into your mind and soul of Venus Scorpio is terrific, and terrifying, especially for those, who are not honest with themselves. Scorpio Venus will smash your personality and blow it away, showing you all the superficial trash you hold within, leaving you naked under the rain. This is kinda what all of them do, cause they just can’t handle an easygoing love that Air signs prefer . This is not normal for a good lady that Venus is – this is why it’s in exile here. Well, the nature of perversion of this position causes not to go ahead, holding each other’ hands, no – it’s destruction and start anew type of interaction. What can you do when meeting it – kill this person (how dare you! kind of anger) or submit & commit :)

    One more thing I wanted to post about is an obsession of Scorpio among astro community – well I mean everybody wants to prove how sexy he/she is, having planets, Asc in Scorpio, gee, it’s like Sco is sexy, but other planets are nbot, or less. I mean fixed water, of course it’s intense, you can’t ignore it. But the sexy person for you is that person, who has aspects to your personal planets (90, 0, 180, 120, 60) – this will be the type that attracts you personally.

    Having Scorpio Moon, and well comparing myself with Sco Venus/Mars people, I gotta say Moon have it just all the time and naturally, it’s not just situations in which your Sco Venus or Mars is working, especially this is right for women, because Moon is even more important for us, than Venus.

    That is what I do and I don’t even be trying to!! I am a female with a Cap-Sun, Libra-Moon, Aries-Rising, and a Venus in Scorpio! It’s so true about the intensity, possessiveness, and the jealousy! If I am really into a guy that I really like, I lose my mind. I become obsessed with passion and possess my partner! My love is intense and deep, and with me it’s either all or nothing! Some men can handle it, and some can’t. I love change and I can get bored with someone very fast. I can love you today, and not know you tomorrow! As I have gotten older, I have learned how to tone the possessiveness down at times. If I want something or someone bad enough, I can be manipulative to get what I want!!

    To me it’s sometimes a blessing and a curse!!

  34. i wonder what having venus in scorpio in the 6th does in a synastry chart? anyone have an opinion?

  35. I have Venus,Mercury,Saturn in Scorpio and my sun is in the 8th house. I have trouble meeting the right guy. I attract a lot of guys I am not interested in. If I am interested, it gets way too intense!

  36. On the other hand, Venus in Scorpio ppl tend to be meddling and obsessive in relationships. They just don’t know how to have it just smooth and nice. Also kill sweetness and tenderness with jealousy and possessiveness. For those who have good Venus in horoscope this is trouble dealing with someone with such a venus. Moreover, this is the reason Im out of current relationship – enough of this negativity of scorpio venus for me.

  37. Goodness! Venus scorpio conjunction saturn and pluto doesn’t let me talk to any guy without the whole men-woman scene. I cant think I had ever a chat with guy, just like with a friend without subjecting the men sexuality and boyfriedship thing, I am embarassed to say what is going in my head haha! Easy to figure out guys are either totally yes or no. They must be getting the inclings

  38. I have mars in scorpio. Plus venus square mars. Does that make me Plutonian ? I don’t know..I act coy only to comfort the other person and not my fears because in love I can be very overwhelming. I need to own the person completely. I enjoy short, intense romances where I can be inspired by my self destructive traits. All my lovers are my muses. It’s LTRs I have problems with. How can anyone satisfy me for the rest of my life? I think men are disposable and weak anyway and somehow if I have to settle in a conventional LTR it has to be a woman..
