From what I’ve read, Venus in Libra is exalted and Venus in Scorpio is in its detriment. Venus in Libra is more occupied with superficiality while Venus in Scorpio is more preoccupied with intensity and the deep end of relationship.
Why is Venus in Libra exalted when superficiality has nothing to do with love? Wouldn’t Venus in Scorpio be the one ” loving ” correctly?
Venus is exalted in Pisces not Libra but I get your drift. Venus rules Libra so it’s considered well placed there, not because the sign is superficial (a judgment) but because it’s a sign that wants to get along with others which is what “relationship” is all about.
Libra is able to see the other person’s point of view. Libra values partnership and is willing to compromise to keep the peace. These things go a long way when relating to another person.
In contrast Venus in Scorpio is concerned with passion. Is stabbing your partner good for relationship? Probably not long term.
Is testing your partner and working psych games back and forth really describe love? How about withholding love to gain power? Is manipulation part of love?
If you have Venus in Scorpio or in aspect to Pluto you might say yes as this is your taste. But when you’re talking straight astrology, this is the explanation for the exaltation and detriment designations. Scorpio is attracted to intense experience, including pain. This does not fare well for partnership.
On the chance it sounds I am down on Venus in Scorpio, not hardly. I was in a relationship for 3 years with a man with Venus in Scorpio in the 8th house. My first husband had it, as do a number of my friends.
This video might also help. I’m talking about a man with Venus in Scorpio vs my Venus in the 7th which is akin to Venus in Libra… Enjoy! 🙂
What happens when two people love each other but have love natures that are not compatible?
