Venus in Scorpio

What You're Like...:

You are intense and confident, a combination that makes you very attractive. When first meeting people, you're likely to be cautious, taking time to observe them in many situations. You pick up on emotional vibes, and know when someone is into you, and when they're not. You're able to bide your time and wait for the right moment to take a relationship further.

Quality and Element:

In Love and Romance:

You've got animal magnetism, and know when to turn it on to get attention. When dating, you'll probe the potential mate, but likely do a bait and switch when you're the subject of inquiry. Your focus is a scorpionic hold, powerful and hard to shake. The bond feels strong, and that can make it feel enduring and good for the long haul. You've got an intangible sexual power that comes from your intensity. Things go wrong when you use control and manipulation to hold a partner, to possess them. If you're not vigilant, your love life could become a dark tale of obsession, lusty addiction, and vengeance.

Friendship Style:

You're someone that can read close friends like a book, and can sum up an aspect of their lives with startling insight. They think you're not paying attention, then you say something that reminds them that nothing slips by unobserved. You expect them to keep your secrets, and you'll definately keep theirs. The Venus in Scorpio can be telepathically attuned, and sometimes you just get a feeling to call. A strong hold on friends can become oppressive, if you're jealous of all their other connections.

Creative Expression:

Whatever you do, you bring a powerful focus, drive and imagination. You can immerse yourself into a role, whether it's as an actor, a politician or a rock star.

The Big Attraction:

You're just shimmering with some kind of intensity mojo. The game of seduction occurs subtley for you, with a steamy look or sensual touch. There's a hint of danger with you, which can be a turn on for many. You guard your privacy, which makes you seem like a tantalizing mystery to be investigated.

Winning Your Heart:

To win your heart, there has to be some element of surrender on the part of your mate. You want to merge into an emotional union, and will shy from those that like to keep things light and casual. It's hard for you to forgive, so it's best to stick with someone that isn't going to play games or be untrue (easier said than done, of course). You've got to be with a strong person emotionally, someone that won't easily bend to your will. The sexual side of life is amped up for you, so your partner should also have a healthy libido.
