Your passions are about to rise considerably as Venus, the planet of love, art, beauty, happiness and luxury, enters Scorpio on November 26.
So until December 20, Venus will be traveling in the sign of Mars that loves secrets, exploration, research, inner-earth resources and yes, passion.
In Vedic astrology Venus and Mars—the planet of energy and defense—aren’t exactly a match made in heaven. These planets are, in fact, lukewarm or neutral to each other.
This is because the too-hot-for-comfort energy of Mars can sometimes diminish the watery, cooler energy of Venus—a planet that brings happiness through social life, pleasant entertainment, sensual pleasures and human connections.
Yet Venus in Scorpio has a lot to offer you and can even boost your happiness in the holiday and party season.
So to dive into mysterious Scorpio waters and find joys beyond your expectations, here for you: an easy, Vedic and holiday guide by sign, to make merry, be generous and happy in the next three and a half weeks.
Pleasures from the unknown
Have you ever gotten so immersed in your school or work research that you forgot to eat, sleep or even breathe?
Or perhaps the allure of an ancient science or myth touched you so deeply that you developed a whole new passion—which led to your transformation from a dull and meaningless life to a deeply rich and satisfying one?
Now no matter the field you’ll choose to explore—your genetic pool, psychology, predictive sciences, myth or archaeological findings—the holiday season will take a whole new and profound meaning.
And in your relationships, you’re about to move from the seasonal small talk or conventional niceties to deeply-felt and pleasurable moments with your family, friends, coworkers, networks and life partner.
● Recite Venus’ mantra (or traditional sounds) OM SHUKRAYA NAMAHA 108 times to ensure happy, uncongested times with your loved ones.
● Ban jealousy and competition to guarantee a lovely and unforgettable holiday for all.
● Be tolerant of others’ peculiar venus in scorpio traits.
● Immerse yourself in mystery and study life-enhancing, esoteric subjects.
● Steer away from horror stories and violent entertainment that could cause long-term fears, especially in the suggestible psychology of little children.
● Be generous—in fact generosity is one of Scorpio’s lovely traits.
● Be kind to all, including distant relatives you barely know. Although you’ll want to do it for the sake of impeccable ethics and good manners, Scorpio is the natural house of inheritance—and you never know when a distant aunt or cousin might decide to include you in their will to share their wealth with you.
● Speak from the heart, as small talk just won’t do when three planets—Sun, Mercury and Venus— will be in self-controlled yet sincere Scorpio.
● Trust your intuition—another prerogative of Scorpio—which can help you step up an okay relationship, turn it into a better connection, and satisfy your need for authenticity.
