This featured painting was created by the famous artist Gustave Doré and it is called "The Creation of Eve". Gustave Doré of course had his Venus in Scorpio, and was one of the most famous Biblical illustrators. As such, his work was used in many Bibles in 19th Century Europe, and continues to be used today. His ability to bring the reader into the story, to create an image which adds a layer of visual depth to a text, creating feelings and emotion, is expected from someone with their Venus in Scorpio. Taking something that already exists (The Bible) and rebirthing it, adding another dimension of understanding and feeling to it... evoking feelings and depth and connection to the viewer in an intuitive way that was truly hard to match. This image represents  (Genesis ii, 18, 21-24), which reads: 

“And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helpmeet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept, and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh.” 

The creation, the seeming destruction of something (Adam's rib), and turning it into something even better. That together the masculine and feminine must unite as one... only to then lead to a twist of temptation. This idea of wanting to control the partner, and in that control, creating intrigue and curiosity in the other. A Venus in Scorpio man or woman manifests everything good or bad, whether they like it or not. In fact, this is something that they usually are not even consciously aware of, and the beginning of that tale is perfectly depicted in all of its glory and mystery here.

The Venus in Scorpio Man or Woman is a very complex creature, to say the least.

But, you never told me that you loved me, why are you just telling me all of this now?

Yes, that's right, because they will never be the first ones to let you know. And if they are, consider yourself either extremely lucky or in the lineup of Scorpionic Bamboozlement. #justsaying

These men and women love secrets, they crave the darkness, the light and everything in between... but let's face it - mostly darkness.

More sensitive than they will ever allow you to believe, when they fall for you, they fall hard, so it is very important to them that they keep you at a distance until they really know that it's safe.

Safety, safety, safety. Just when this person thought it was safe to come out, they can find themselves (especially in their youth) attracting and being attracted to people who are the lower forms of this darkness. This either makes them see their own secretive ways, turning them into relationship gods, or turning them into the anti-lovers. The "I will never fall in love again-ers".

But please, Venus in Scorpio, we need you. Your love, at it's best, is the deepest, most all encompassing of enchantments, and you will be able to attract the best partners, once you cultivate your relationship with your own deep unconscious.

The secret to Venus in Scorpio men and women is that they are deeply transformed by love, and that they crave this "twin flame" connection. So much so that they will quite literally stop at nothing to get it.

More so, they are looking for a willing partner who wants them to help them to deeply transform too. They love to teach, because in teaching, they get to tap into their power.

For a man/more masculine energied individual, they are attracted to women that truly let them in. Women/feminine individuals who make them want to open all of their wounds and transform them. Women who are deeply devoted to them and their life mission.

For a woman/more feminine energied individual with their Venus in Scorpio, they are deeply beckoned to by the occult/esoteric studies. They prefer to work alone and perfect their craft. They will only ever let down their guard for someone with immense strength and vulnerability.

To my Venus in Scorpio men and women - thank you for teaching me what love actually feels like, and you're right... not many other people get it... but we do, and that's all that matters.

I love you now, and I will love you always,
