Venus moves from lovey dovey Libra to intense Scorpio - joining Saturn no less. The next few weeks are hot, intense and cathartic.
Banish emotional fears and stop running from the real thing. Sure its scary, but its REAL which means it can last, it can endure, it can enlighten, it can heal, it can melt your fears (or enhance them if you hold onto your fear) and it can be a whole lot of fun and wild passion too.
Speaking for fear, the dark side of this is that you will wallow in your base instincts. Things like self doubt and jealousy can come pouring out of you. Its a time to reconcile yourself with who you are and own it and love it. Or change it. If you find yourself accusing your love interest of flirting or cheating, you know you're in a bad place. If you think you're not good enough, make a list of your good and bad points and realize you stack up to most people. And change what really makes you crazy about yourself. Therapy would be excellent now, as you are motivated to explore your depths and Saturn will help you release old patterns that do not serve you anymore.
The positive track is to say what's been in your heart and risk rejection or bypass your fears. Spit it out, yell it from the rooftops, take a leap of faith. Venus and Saturn together can create unions with strong sticking power. But you have to be bold. Say the things you hide in your heart and let them out of hiding. Embrace the passion you feel. Be a risk taker. The odds are in your favor if you dig deep and release. This is a time to create lasting connections with meaning and depth. Saturn will take you there if you let him. "I love you but you scare the hell out of me" is a good opening line. Or "I love you so much I almost wish I didn't --- its just so much emotion sometimes I feel like I'm drowning". "You haunt me and I can't take it anymore. Lets give this thing a shot even though I'm afraid you'll rip my heart out". Let the feelings out, Let the passion out. Let the fear out. Let the joy begin. Your heart throb may just be waiting for you to be so bold and will jump in your arms when you say yes to deep, committed love with heaps of passion. Take a chance.
