Your Venus in Scorpio Horoscope Adds Spice and Sex Appeal

When love planet Venus slips into seductive Scorpio for a month, there’s no telling what might transpire! Here’s your Venus in Scorpio horoscope for this sexy four-week transit, December 4-29, 2023.

Venus shimmies into Scorpio on Monday, December 4, adding another dollop of sexy vibes to the last month of the year. Just talking about your turn-ons could get motors revving.

But privacy, please! What happens behind closed doors during a Venus in Scorpio transit is the juiciest of all.

Venus in Scorpio’s double-edged sword: Secrecy and mystery are hot!

A transformative and intimate holiday season awaits with Venus in Scorpio. This transit turns up the mystery, but too much secrecy could devolve into jealousy or stir up unnecessary trust issues.

Tempted by someone who is technically unavailable? Good sense could fly out the window in the face of a scorching hot attraction. Find ways to get your kicks that don’t require you to break any binding relationship rules.

One more warning! The green-eyed monster makes regular appearances during this cycle, especially for those with an anxious attachment style. Leaving something to the imagination can be hot, but riling up jealousy? Don’t even THINK about going there. (Avoidant attachers we’re looking at you!)

Dive deep into emotional exploration to move past any blocks

Feeling stuck? This transit is supreme for going deep with a partner. Try some emotional exploration to move past any blocks. If you’re willing to talk through bottled-up feelings and resentments, Venus in Scorpio opens the floodgates (seductive and otherwise).

Find ways to get in touch with your emotion (and eroticism), too, think: dance, sensual movement or good old-fashioned bedroom gymnastics. Remember, no turn-on is taboo if you’re both into it while Venus is in Scorpio!

No need to stand near the twinkle lights to give yourself a proper glow-up.

Suddenly, your yoga bag becomes your favorite accessory, and that cloud of locally harvested kale at the farmer’s market looks especially fetching. Forget about touching up your roots—roast some root vegetables instead (or do both!). Decluttering and beautifying your workspace also adds serenity. Beauty is your muse. Read more Gemini horoscopes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) Venus in Scorpio horoscope

Zing! Romance-aholic Venus leaves your frumpy fourth house and moves into Scorpio, your zone of passion and glamour.

Turn your attention to your castle, Lion, and ensure it’s appointed in regal yet restful style. With Venus here until December 29, you’ve got your eye on chic new home accessories, a printed duvet cover, or even a lush, velvet-upholstered Chesterfield. (Picture yourself sprawled across it for a glamorous photo shoot. Totally worth the investment.) Improving relationships with close friends and relatives is also favored now. Let’s hear it for your pride! Read more Leo horoscopes.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Venus in Scorpio horoscope

Since the third house rules communication, look at the message you’re putting out—through your own speech, your marketing materials, or social media. Make your presentation sparkle. Two is the magic number during this interactive phase. Explore synergies over long cappuccino meetings or hold a brainstorming sesh at your favorite boulangerie, decadent pastries and all.

Libra (September 23-October 22) Venus in Scorpio horoscope

Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” While you might disagree (mildly), your ruling planet Venus—goddess of love and beauty—whets your appetite for luxury. December 4-29, Venus is in Scorpio, your posh second house of material pleasures. You want to enjoy the finer things with your sweetie now.

Beautifying Venus makes you quite the head-turner, perhaps inspiring you to update your image. Check out an up-and-coming designer’s capsule collection or change your hair color. If Scorpios love anything, it’s to keep people guessing! You’re always ahead of the sartorial curve, so try some avant-garde new looks. Read more Scorpio horoscopes.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Venus in Scorpio horoscope

Is it time to let go with love? Venus, planet of harmony, is in Scorpio December 4-29, lending its gracious touch to your twelfth house of closure, healing and forgiveness. Holding onto a grudge or past hurt is only imprisoning you, Sagittarius. As the saying goes, resentment is like drinking the poison and hoping the other person dies. Perhaps you’re grasping an unrequited torch, and realize it’s time to gently snuff it out, rather than hanging onto that last shred of hope.

Since the twelfth house rules illusions, some buried issues or resentments could surface in your personal life. Be mindful not to play the victim—everyone had a role in this situation. You’ll feel most empowered if you take responsibility for your part of the dynamic. Read more Sagittarius horoscopes.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Venus in Scorpio horoscope

The more, the merrier! Harmonizer Venus sashays into Scorpio, your eleventh house of group activity, December 4-29. You glow in the company of good friends, and you’re more open than usual to meeting new people, rather than sticking to your same-old circle. Feeling jealous or competitive with a nemesis in your industry? Don’t hate; collaborate. Find a way to bring your skills together for a mutual win-win. Or, team up with a group of avant-garde thinkers, and you’ll create your own movement. There’s plenty of room for everyone to shine. Read more Capricorn horoscopes.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Venus in Scorpio horoscope

Unpack that power suit and get ready to rub shoulders with the VIPs. Charming Venus spends December 4-29 in Scorpio, your ambitious tenth house, lending your career aspirations some extra magnetism. You could score a promotion, or find yourself mingling with the top brass, perhaps via exclusive invitation. Don’t snub an industry event or an awards banquet—you never know who might be sitting next to you at that $500-a-plate dinner. That connection could be worth far more than the prime rib entree, Aquarius. If you’re already in a powerful position, express gratitude to the people who make it all possible, or to help someone rise through the ranks. Read more Aquarius horoscopes.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) Venus in Scorpio horoscope
