Venus in Scorpio Personality

No Venus placement takes "til death do we part" more seriously than Venus in Scorpio. Love is no trifle for those with this placement, which is why they often avoid it. While others pursue relationships simply for the sake of having one, Scorpio Venus seeks their soulmate, the person to whom they can bear their souls. Once fallen—which is no easy task for these individuals—they tend to stay in love for better or worse, excepting some major betrayal. In that case, Scorpio Venus can be unforgiving. God may give second chances, but they certainly do not.

Given this intense approach to relationships, it comes as no surprise that those with this placement can be a little possessive in love, watching their loved ones obsessively for signs of dishonesty or inconsistency. Despite their shortcomings, theirs is a love worth fighting for.

Positive Traits

These natives use their Scorpionic detective skills to dive deeply into their loved ones' souls. They find it hard to love what and who they don't know intimately. To love is to merge completely for these individuals. However, they reward intimacy with their unwavering attention and commitment. A Venus in Scorpio will always make the object of the affections feel seen.

There's no paucity of suitors for those with their Venus in Scorpio. They possess a magnetism that draws people to them like moths to light. Their unapologetic nature paired with their drive makes for a highly attractive individual.

Negative Traits

Those with their Venus in Scorpio want soul bonds but struggle to give others even a glimpse into theirs due in part to a fear of manipulation. This glimpse may only come after a series of tests. A profound fear of hurt and betrayal can make Scorpio Venus' paranoid partners within and before a relationship.

At their worst, people with this placement can incarnate a Joe Goldberg-esque approach to relationships—a mistrustful, watchful eye that obsesses over the objects of their affection. At its highest, love is trust, but Venus in Scorpio struggles with understanding.


Those born with their Venus in Scorpio seek profundity in all aspects of their lives. The dark corners of existence beckon them. There is a certain rawness with which they set about their relationships. Their emotions can feel cataclysmic and all-encompassing, so their affections definitely aren't for the faint of heart. Though they aren't the easiest to pin down—who, after all, could tame a hurricane—they are exceptional lovers and willing to burn the world for their loved ones.

Beyond romance, Scorpio Venus' are true powerhouses. Through pure effort, they usually get what they want. Passion pumps through their veins.
