Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 05/03/19 Venus Scorpio likes to be covert with feelings, at least at first. If intrigued, he or she will observe closely, in many situations, before taking a chance on love. Venus Scorpio is soulful but has the totem of a poisonous insect. Getting enmeshed with them can be deadly, where the poison becomes the cure. That means once you plunge the depths, things have to play out, and it can implode. But it'll leave you transformed, as Scorpio's way is to unlock what's denied, buried or deadened. This Venus is wary by nature, because she dwells in both light and dark, and has an instinct for the shadow side. It's not fear, but wisdom, that keeps her from diving in willy-nilly. If she takes the risk, she senses that it's worth it, knowing full well that all heck will break loose. When Venus is in Scorpio, the mood lighting is candlelight, and there's whispering of secrets. You'll find clues by reading about Scorpio in Love since Venus is the love planet. Venus shows us what we're drawn to in relationship, and that varies with the Zodiac signs. Venus Scorpio guys and gals are guarded, but then intensely bonded to those they're close to, even friends. Here's Venus Scorpio with other Venus Signs: Venus Scorpio with Venus in Aries Big passion here with planetary rulers Mars and Pluto heating things up. But what Venus Aries starts, he might not have the emotional fortitude to finish. Both are naturally intense with flaring moods, and the fights could be cathartic. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Taurus This is the Taurus-Scorpio polarity pair of opposites, that have similarities, like craving security, both physical and emotional. Love grows slowly, through sensual moments in the kitchen and the boudoir. A stubborn duo that can get bogged down in resentment, so bold truth-telling keeps it real. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Gemini The light, airy Gemini can be a social ice-breaker for secretive Scorpio. They swap insightful observations about people, covering all angles and depths. Venus Gemini likes to keep all options open, and that could be a deal breaker for all-or-nothing Scorpio. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Cancer Both have hard shell outer emotional defenses, so it'll take time to break through to real intimacy. They expect others to read their minds, but in this case, it works out. Venus Scorpio admires a strong will, so the Moonchild lover will want to put on a brave face, at least some of the time. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Leo This pair forms a Venus square, for some fiery friction and clashing of wills. They're attracted to confidence and for them, power is an aphrodisiac. Leo has natural nobility, and Scorpio is self-contained. It's important to have peace, along with the drama, to avoid burn-out and too many hurt feelings. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Virgo A love match bringing together two with finicky tastes and high standards. Both fashion themselves as intellectuals, and also realists, so it's not likely they'll see through rose-colored glasses. If there's a shared purpose, that goes far with these two compatible elements (water and earth) Venus signs. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Libra Scorpio doesn't play nice the way Libra wants to, but the latter might see this as a personal challenge. Trouble starts when Venus Libra wants to keep up appearances, even if that means ignoring what's really going on. Both shoot poison darts at times, though Libra says it with a smile. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Scorpio There's natural compatibility here since they have telepathy and x-ray vision. There could be double the drama, but also two-fold the power to take raw material and turn it into personal gold. Possible extremes of Scorpiocity - with jealousy and obsession - so proceed with caution! Venus Scorpio with Venus in Sagittarius This is a tricky one because there are similarities with these Zodiac neighbors -- both are frank and sexually experimental. Venus Scorpio tends toward serial monogamy, though, and the commitment thing could be a dealbreaker. Above all, Scorpio craves loyalty and will get vengeful if Sagittarius has an open borders policy in love. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Capricorn These lovebirds are seriously choosy, and often it has to do with power and status. Even if they're not materialistic, they both admire those that tenaciously go after their goals. They have compatible elements (water and earth), and a desire for stability, which can mean creating a home with valuables and heirlooms. Venus Scorpio with Venus in Aquarius This is a quirky match that's potentially got a lot of electricity, though the jolts could be shocking! There's a Venus square, and incompatible elements -- one is totally emotionally engaged, other other, airy Aquarius is known for detachment. Deep-diving and surfacing? Or great heights followed by a crash? Venus Scorpio with Venus in Pisces Both are water signs, with the difference that Scorpio's intensity is concentrated, while Pisces swirls around and changes form. They share a love of mystery, and a desire to peel the layers of the soulful onion. Much can be unsaid, with a look or touch saying it all. If deception creeps in, it can become a sinking ship.
