  1. “Love may not be easy with Venus in Scorpio, but it is powerful, transformative and deep.”


  2. Both planets are in detriment, but I believe Venus in Scorpio may need to let Mars blow off some steam, get some air and let him be in his own space without seeking to penetrate deeper into his shell. In short, Venus in Scorpio has to be careful of a consistent “home” invasion. So, though, they’re both water, they’re different kinds of water by virtue of their dignities. Mars is the strong swimmer who likes to go deep, sometimes long and sometimes on shore. But Venus in Scorpio may want to stay deep too often, too long.

  3. Thanks for your insight, Samuel 🙂
