If your Venus is in Scorpio:
When your Venus is in Scorpio, it’s all or nothing in matters of the heart. You are capable of loving deeply, and you crave intimacy. Scorpio isn’t afraid of anything, and when Venus, the planet of love, is found in this sign, love relationships are intense. Scorpio is also a sign that thrives on crisis in order for its natives to feel alive and vital, so when it comes to matters of the heart, you are not only unafraid of getting your hands dirty, you may easily find an overly predictable relationship uninteresting.
Scorpios don’t enjoy being referred to as jealous, but from time to time, jealousy and possessiveness become issues in your relationships. You have a strong desire to control your often turbulent passions, and you don’t always let your partner exactly what is going on inside of you as a result. Others will be either strongly attracted to, or intimidated by, your obvious ability to give all to love, and your extraordinary passion. Your strong interest in love and romance can sometimes border on obsessive, and you need a partner who is willing to go the distance with you. Sexually, you are intense as well, but you definitely do not only want your partner’s body—you want his or her soul as well. Sex without intimacy is ultimately uninteresting to you.
Be careful that your fear of betrayal doesn’t become a self-fulfilling prophecy. When insecure about your partner’s feelings about you, resorting to games of power and control might seem like a natural route for you, and may even get temporary desired “results”, but can have disastrous consequences in the long run. Learning to let go a little and have faith in your partner can do wonders in any relationship. When you are at your best, you are unafraid of intimacy and can offer extraordinary passion to your relationships that is pretty much unmatched.

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries: An unusual combination, but very intriguing when two powerful Venus placements come together! The attraction can be exciting, but harmony can be difficult to attain. Your partner is direct while you can be more roundabout in expressions of love. Your libido is rather constant, while your partner’s fluctuates tremendously. Your partner lives for the excitement of the moment in matters of the heart, but you have an eye on commitment and constancy. Sexually, you are likely to have a powerful union, but emotionally there can be difficulties because your styles of expressing love and affection are so contrary. Perhaps this combination is better when the relationship is shorter term—the memory of your times together could be powerful. Still, this combination can work in a committed, long-term relationship with heaps of love and understanding. Adjustments will most surely have to be made. Butting heads is something you are likely to do, as both of you want your way in relationships, but both of you will have to learn to concede to each other now and again! Passions will run high, and if you can harness that energy and put it to work for your relationship in a positive way, then the union will be satisfying indeed.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus: Opposites attract? Very often they do. The interesting thing about opposite astrological signs is that they do share a common theme, helping them to see eye-to-eye from time to time, at least. Both of you are stubborn individuals, rather fixed in your habits and tastes, and essentially intense and loyal in love. Neither of you lets go of partnerships—or each other—easily. You tend to be more intense about your attachments than your partner is, and your partner’s overall peacefulness should go a long way to calm the sometimes tumultuous waters of your emotions and needs. Each of you is attracted to the other’s strong personality and willingness to commit. You sense in your partner the ability to “go the distance”, and mutual respect is likely the result. This is a sexually intense and magnetic partnership. Who will run the show? Ideally, both of you will, in different ways, but power is important to you both, and your strong personalities may clash at times. One of the most common differences between Taurus and Scorpio lies in how you approach love relationships. Your partner may find you overly complex, while you might consider your partner’s needs too simple! Your partner’s desire in love is for peace and stability, while you thrive on boat-rocking from time to time. You tend to feel threatened when a relationship becomes too predictable, but predictability is your partner’s goal! This basic clash is inevitable, and finding a common ground will be essential. This partnership has an exceptional chance of lasting.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini: This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that “like attracts like” on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers (albeit in completely different ways!), and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious “issues” as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. Your partner is a tease, a flirt. This doesn’t necessarily mean that he or she flirts with everyone, but he or she does infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into their relationship. Your love nature is intense, and you crave intimacy. When intimacy is threatened, you can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which you attempt to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio you are. You are astute and perceptive, and can easily learn how to push your partner’s buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. You want your partner’s soul, not just their body! Your partner, however, has an entirely different view of partnership. He or she wants it to be fun, while you will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer: This is considered an easier pairing than most because both of your Venus signs are in Water. A similar—and familiar—vein to the quality of your expressions of love can draw you to one another and make you feel “at home”. Both of you take commitment rather seriously, and neither of you is frivolous with your feelings and expressions. Your partner’s warmth and caring nature will feel regenerating to you, and your partner senses your all-encompassing love that will hold special appeal to your loving partner. At times, the love you offer can feel all-consuming, but this doesn’t scare your partner like it would with some other lovers. In fact, the love your partner gives is rather similar, and you don’t fear closeness and intimacy. In fact, you live for it! The attraction between the two of you is magnetic, deeply felt, and has the potential to withstand the test of time if other factors in synastry support it. Both of you tend to be possessive in love, and your partner’s memory is powerful. Communication should be as open as possible, as both of you tend towards holding silent grudges at times. Your partner’s reaction to hurts is often internalized, while you can grow cold and unresponsive when you feel slighted. However, the empathy that runs between you can soften any hard angles in your relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo: You and your partner can be possessive of each other, which may become a big issue between you. You quickly “feel out” your emotions-on-the-sleeves partner and learns his or her boundaries. When Leo and Scorpio mix, we are faced with the mixing of Fire and Water. Water (Scorpio) has the power to put out Fire (Leo). What happens is your partner’s natural spiritedness and enthusiasm in love might seem threatening or disconcerting to you, and you might find it easy to pull your partner down, or “rain on his or her parade”. Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, which means each of you is quite loyal and possibly very stubborn! Both of you hold on to partnerships, so it is quite likely that your relationship will last long. However, neither of you is particularly flexible, and both of you are quite proud. Jealousies and clashes of will are very possible with this combination. In partnerships where money is shared, how each of you spends money will likely be a big issue. There can be a lot of passion between you, as both of you have strong appetites, but the bedroom can be yet another battleground for you and your partner. When you withhold sex, generally because you are feeling unloved or unappreciated, your partner takes it very personally. Despite the fact that you both have strong sexual appetites, there can be periods of abstinence between you. However, each of you will find much to appreciate in each other. Neither of you shies away from a relationship when it gets intense. Your partner is sure to appreciate your emotional commitment to the relationship, and you will respect your partner’s strength, as you are attracted to intensity—even crisis. This is an intense, often rocky, and passionate pairing.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo: Trust doesn’t come extremely easy to either you or your partner, but put you together, and the atmosphere feels quite safe. You are passionate and intense—perhaps even provocative at times. If you sense passion and commitment is missing or waning, you may go to any means (often subtle) to keep the relationship from becoming boring. This is because you can be somewhat addicted to emotional excitement. Your partner is usually receptive to a partner’s wishes and needs, and he or she tends to bend their ways accordingly. Your lover works hard at making relationships work—something that you sense and appreciate. Neither of you is frivolous about committed relationships, and if you and your partner are committed to each other, this pairing can be hard to break. This pairing combines Venusian Earth (your partner) and Water (you). When you understand each other’s different styles of loving, the combination can be very fertile. Problems generally arise between the differences in focus. Both of you are committed to making your relationship last, but your partner values practical expressions of commitment, while you value emotional ones. Subtle control issues may be the source of problems over time. If you sense any emotional distance on your lover’s part, you may use various means to regain some sense of control. Generally, your partner only appears “distant” because he or she is busy tending to the cogs in the machine of your relationship. Your lover may find your silences frustrating, because he or she is always willing to talk about the relationship and doesn’t always understand why you resort to giving him or her the silent treatment! You can be skilled at knowing how to push your partner’s buttons, however, and this may be one of the more potent ways you have discovered to get your partner’s attention! As long as game-playing is kept to a minimum, this relationship has many strengths and much potential.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra: Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! You want your lover’s soul, not just his or her presence. Your lover, on the other hand, is most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your partner’s relationship needs, he or she works hard at finding common ground and adamantly believes in equality and all that is fair. You, on the other hand, believe just as strongly that life isn’t fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. You can be fascinated with your partner’s charm, and your lover is intrigued by your intense love nature. Although you are notorious for your mysteriousness, you can actually consider your Venus in Libra partner to be somewhat of a puzzle! You may find your lover to be emotionally distant and overly focused on superficial togetherness at the expense of intimacy. Your partner brings a lively, luminous energy to his or her relationships—qualities that stand in stark contrast, at times, to your intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teach—and to offer—each other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Scorpio: Your similarities in approach to love can either strengthen your relationship or make you wary of each other! Often, it is a combination of both. Both of you are intense lovers, wanting emotional involvement more than anything from a relationship. You will certainly get it from each other, but Scorpio, perhaps more than most signs, needs a partner to complement, with enough differences to keep things interesting. Not that this relationship will be boring—that could never happen with either of you! Neither of you is comfortable with a partnership that is completely comfortable or predictable. Your relationship will never get to that point. The only red flag here is that each of you needs someone to soften your sharp edges, and your relationship may be even too much of an emotional rollercoaster for either of your liking! If both of you are at an emotionally healthy point in your lives, and with understanding, you can certainly forge out a strong commitment. Passions will be strong, although stand-offs may be frequent and almost unbearable. If you make the time to appreciate each other, there will be considerable mutual respect and common goals in this relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius: This is a case of two side-by-side signs, with two very different ways of expressing love, trying to relate. The result can be awkward and a little messy, but can certainly work with awareness and understanding. You approach love relationships with intensity. Your partner is intense in a different way. He or she is a fiery lover, focused on action and the passion of the moment, while your passion runs more deeply and is considerably more emotional. Experience is important to your partner. He or she does not always come across as constant with affections, and this fact can be frustrating to you. You can be somewhat possessive in love, but your partner chokes when he or she feels caged in. You may find your partner somewhat flighty and inconstant, and he or she may be bewildered by your greater than average need for intimacy. Still, you will thoroughly enjoy the fresh air that your partner breathes into the relationship. Life is always exciting with a Venus in Sagittarius lover! Your partner will consider you astute and will appreciate your depth of perception. This can be a rocky partnership, but highly stimulating at the same time.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn: The passion your partner senses in you is, of course, real, and this thought excites your mate. Although other lovers may find your partner a tad reserved and perhaps even undemonstrative in love, you have a way of making him or her feel extraordinary. Because your partner both fears and craves intimacy, you are probably one of the most ideal people to get to him or her. Your partner finds you exciting and deeply intriguing, and you are sure to find him or her equally fascinating—even a challenge. You will thoroughly appreciate your partner’s dedication to a relationship, probably more than most, and it is when he or she feels appreciated that your partner is at his or her romantic best. You both have strong personalities, in different ways, and this may cause some tension at times. However, neither of you can stay attracted to someone “weak” for too long, so the mutual respect can do wonders for your partnership. This is a stimulating combination, one with a lot of give and a lot of take. If anything, you will certainly never be bored with each other. Perhaps what your partner appreciates most about you is your ability to see past his or her defenses. While others may be intimidated by your partner’s often cool and even aloof exterior, you know there is a lot more to your lover. Fortunately for you, you will get to experience all that is inside your Venus in Capricorn lover, and it is unlikely you will be disappointed.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius: This is one of the more challenging combinations! With love, of course, it can work, but acceptance and understanding are especially vital. You are likely to be intrigued with your partner’s love nature, and your partner with your nature. Your nature is intense and personal, and very passionate. While your partner is able to take a step back from many emotional issues in your partnership, if only to gain perspective and understanding, you have a much more difficult time doing just that. This can be complementary at times, but can also be intensely frustrating. It may not be very easy for you to “get” why your lover is capable of detaching him or herself from emotional circumstances, and you may even find it threatening to the basic love bond between you. Your partner can be quite baffled by your passionate reactions, as he or she tends to feel that getting too emotionally tangled up in problems is counterproductive. Your lover values objectivity, and prides himself or herself on an ability to reason things through. Your partner may be inclined to react to your more emotionally intense moments by giving you space. This is likely to frustrate you even more, as you interpret your partner’s “stepping aside” as walking away—or, even worse, lack of concern for you and the relationship. This relationship can be rather tempestuous at times, but exciting nevertheless. At the very least, you will admire each other’s strength of character.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces: The two of you have different Venus signs, but they both are Water signs. This suggests an overall understanding of each other. You sense in each other a similar kind of depth in your approach to relationships, which can promote an instant bond in and of itself. You love intuitively and emotionally—you don’t use your mind to judge whether a person is good for you or not. You need to feel the connection. The same goes for your Venus in Pisces partner. You are more focused on an intimate and exclusive bond than your partner is, however. Your partner loves deeply and with his or her heart, but you might wonder just how exclusive those feelings are towards you. You want to get under your lover’s skin, and you are not always thrilled to share your partner with the rest of the world. So, when your partner is expressing his or her compassion for pretty much everyone that comes around the corner, you may feel a tad threatened. You need to understand and accept your partner’s love of mankind in general. You might worry that your lover strays too easily—and it’s not about him or her having an affair. It’s more a concern that your partner is too impressionable. Why worry about the rest of the world when he or she has you? That’s the kind of attitude you might hold, and this could be your relationship’s biggest issue. Otherwise, the two of you find much in common. Your partner is more than likely to appreciate your intensity and depth of feeling.
