Brace yourself! Venus moves into Scorpio on October 23rd, 2022.
If you’re wondering what the “brace yourself” part is referring to, then read on. Chances are, if you know quite a bit about Venus – the planet of love and relationships – and Scorpio – the sign of intensity and jealousy – then you’ve probably got a good idea of what happens when these two meet each other.
Explosions and fireworks, to say the least!
What Does it Mean When Venus is in Scorpio?
When Venus moves into Scorpio, we have almost an entire month where passion will be the main focus and agenda in relationships.
Of course, passion can manifest in many different ways. It can be that hot, heavy night with a lover that you never forget and most people only dream about, or it can be jealous explosive rages that you’d rather forget about but never can.
Venus is about that charming, beautiful side of you that you show in relationships to attract the most sensual love, so when Venus is in Scorpio, watch out!
As Venus transits through Scorpio, you′re likely to find your attraction to the good things in life intensifying.
Scorpio doesn′t know how to do things by halves; it′s all or nothing. Scorpio′s symbol is the scorpion, and it′s not the most benevolent of creatures! In the body, Scorpio is the sign that rules the genitalia, so it′s a little wonder that this sign is presumed to be the “sex sign” of the zodiac.
During this transit, you can expect plenty of intensity, passion, and the type of whirlwind situations that you come to associate with the sign of Scorpio.
Venus in Scorpio in Your Birth Chart
If you have Venus in Scorpio in your birth chart, then you will know about it. Likewise, if you are dating/have dated someone with Venus in Scorpio, then you will still know about it and have either been addicted to it or are wiping your brow with relief that you escaped it!
Venus is in detriment in Scorpio, which means she struggles to express her energies. Unlike Venus in Pisces, where Venus is exalted and therefore able to express the very best of herself, Venus in Scorpio is often a challenge for those with it in their natal charts (and those who come into contact with it!)
Venus in Scorpio brings a lot of sex appeal and mystery to the naive.
You will usually spot a Venus in Scorpio because they have oodles of sex appeal. They are often brooding and magnetic, and you can’t help but be drawn to them. They’re a bit like that bad boy/girl that your mother warned you about, but you just can’t help yourself.
Venus in Scorpio comes with excitement and passion, but it also comes with jealousy and obsessiveness. A Venus in Scorpio often struggles with jealousy, and this can manifest in explosions and intense rages. There is an “If I can’t have you, no one can!” mentality about them which less intense signs can find overwhelming.
Venus in Scorpio also has trouble letting go and can resort to obsessive tendencies that can even be stalkerish in their behavior. When hurt or betrayed, they can be extremely vengeful and will rarely, if ever, forgive and forget.
However, this sign brings plenty of excitement to the relationship. They will make you happy in bed, and they will provide you with a love that is so intense that it is magical in its entirety.
Venus in Scorpio is best matched with other Water signs:
- Venus in Pisces –this match is out of this world. Venus’s exaltation and detriment meet as two opposite halves to form a perfect whole, as Venus in Pisces is drawn to Scorpio’s intensity, sex appeal, and ability to go deeper than other signs, while Venus in Scorpio is thrilled that Pisces can understand and soothe them in a way others cannot
- Venus in Cancer – Cancer is nurturing towards Scorpio’s sometimes volatile nature, while Scorpio feels safe in the warm embrace of Cancer.

Positives & Negatives When Venus Enters Scorpio
During Venus in Scorpio season, one thing you have to be careful of is the negative aspects of Scorpio’s personality: jealousy and possessiveness. At the same time, excitement, allure, and passion are some of the most profound positives of this transit.
Below are some tips for dealing with the negatives and positives of Venus in Scorpio.
1. Avoid playing games. This is no time to be playing games or making your lover jealous on purpose.
Venus in Scorpio does not tolerate rivals, and if Scorpio feels their affection is under threat, the stinger comes out. Instead, tread carefully, watch your words and be open and honest—Venus in Scorpio values honesty above all else.
2. Be aware of mood swings. This is also a time to keep an eye on your mood. While Scorpio is not as moody as fellow Water sign, Cancer, Venus in Scorpio transit can generate dark and suspicious moods, especially where love is concerned.
Accusations of infidelity may be more common, and it is important to be more reassuring and patient during this season to counter any negative feelings.
3. Be careful of suspicion. Heightened suspicion in relationships is inevitable. If your partner has trust issues already, it is important to be extra reassuring at this time. Accusations may rise to the surface and can provoke uncomfortable or explosive conflicts.
4. Revelations rising to the surface. Expect revelations of all kinds in relationships during Venus in Scorpio.
Scorpio is a sign that tends to drag what is hidden out into the open, and this can be challenging for some. On the other hand, it paves the way for much stronger relationships and closer bonds.
5. Phenomenal passion! This is a time for some incredible passion and hot times between the sheets! If you’re looking to spice up your relationship, Venus in Scorpio season is the time to do it.
This is also a time when you are at your most attractive, especially if there is a strong Scorpio in your chart. Scorpio is the sign of sex and bestows strong sexual energy, so expect the sparks to fly.
6. Unwillingness to back down. Remember, Scorpio’s traditional ruler is Mars, and you may be more determined to win the fight than usual.
Just remember, the ultimate goal is to find communication and compromise within a healthy relationship. If you feel a bit testier during this transit, try to take a step back from the situation and remind yourself that these intense emotions are temporary.

Turn Up the Heat
After reading this, you may be thinking, “Oh gosh, things are about to heat up, and I think I’d rather just curl up in a ball for a while until the storm blows over!”
Remember, for all the intensity and possible conflict Venus in Scorpio brings, it also brings passion and profound love. It also brings things that are hidden to the surface, and in the long-term, this is always for the best (think the Tower card in the Tarot!)
If your relationship has become stale, or you’re single and have been hoping for things to spice up, Venus in Scorpio can bring the excitement and adventure you’re looking for.
