This is an especially potent Scorpion season because the sun will be closely conjunct Venus, a new moon/ partial solar eclipse all slide in there the same day as the sun. Venus is the ruler of the natural second house of the zodiac (Taurus) which corresponds to our personal resources, tastes, and how we like to be treated in relationships. This opposes the energy of the 8th house where Venus is now transiting along with the sun; new moon and the partial solar eclipse are set to occur. There will be a clash (opposition) between our own values and possessions (2nd house) and those that we why rely on others for in our lives (8th house), a new beginning (new moon/ eclipse) in how we balance these issues and the confidence and consciousness (sun) to make the necessary adjustments.
This will affect a lot of relationships as Venus is really jealous when she is in Scorpio, and our awareness of the give and take necessary to make any commitment work may compel some us to feel more intensely the power struggles in partnerships. We will all want to know where we stand and decide whether what we are putting in is equal to what we are getting out of the exchange of emotions and resources we agree to everyday.
Many marital, sexual, romantic, business and social contracts will be broken or adjusted at this time. The major shift in planetary energy from Libra to Scorpio in one fell swoop will be powerful. It is very important that we stay in focus and communicate with our partners as we will all feel a jolt as the natural light, loving, sharing energy of Libra takes turn towards more serious matters. This is where we will all be reminded that sometimes love just isn’t enough; money, status, power, etc. are sometimes necessary to make relationships work.
