Venus in Scorpio when the rest of the chart says freedom & independence
If the rest of your chart is dominated by Jupiter, all fire, or Uranus... but you have Venus in Scorpio,
Do you still find yourself exemplifying Scorpionic traits when it comes to love?
withholding for power, power plays, love & pain, intensity, deep attraction/connection, and/or all the themes?
It seems this is more the case if Venus is in contact with Pluto, but what about if it isn't in aspect but is in Scorpio?... still the same or to a lesser degree for all you running for the door?
I wouldn’t run from Venus in Scorpio.
But yes, Venus in Scorpio will Venus in Scorpio in love, too, regardless of other placements. The ones I know without a Venus/Pluto aspect still display the characteristics of Venus in Scorpio. To what degree and in what manner will be shown by the whole chart, though.
The whole personality can’t be reduced to one placement, of course, so Venus will blend in with all that fire. You/this person won’t be as intense in relationship as, say, a triple Scorpio with Venus in Scorpio, but you won’t be as flighty or lighthearted as as someone with those other placements, but without Scorpio Venus.
I think it would be another side to the personality, might even surprise a significant other who wasn't expecting it. Honestly this type of person seems appealing to me - I have a 7th house Uranus and I like quirks like that! In fact, I might even be a little like that myself 🙃
For my part, having Aquarius, and Gemini with Scorpio Venus, it is like I am two people in one. One part of me can be flighty and just plain strange but the other part, is deep and can't stand superficiality. I guess I am a Jekyll/Hyde person.
