Venus in Scorpio – Empress in Death’s Clothing

Venus in Scorpio, the Empress in Death's Clothing

Venus Dressed as Death

From a Tarot perspective this transit is like the Empress is wearing Death’s clothing. She’s on a horse and heavily armoured.

The Empress is the grand mother of the deck. She’s protective, nurturing, and deeply compassionate.

She’s creative in her approach to everything, and can be depended upon to find a solution to most of life’s troubles.

Birth is what interests her, it’s the ultimate creation. There’s nothing better than being alive and living fully in all the senses.

Death, of course, has a different perspective. It’s through decay and devolution that creativity is found, like the transformation of the phoenix.

Endings are highlighted, not out of morbidity but for perspective on life. A recognition that things don’t last forever makes us love them even more.

Everything’s equal in Death’s way of seeing things, the holy and the thief will both one day get a visit.

Though the Empress would rather have stayed home in her garden, if people need nurturing during times of change, she’ll be there with armour on.

Venus in Scorpio, or the Empress in Death’s clothing is a time to see the beauty in change. It’s an opportunity to let yourself celebrate what’s passing and nurture what’s about to grow.

Now’s a good time to take a gentle look at the transformations going on in your life and the lives of those around you.

Some changes might touch off sadness, but if you look closer you’ll likely find a golden seed about to emerge. And it’s probably going to make you smile.

There’s something seductive in this combination of deep emotion, beauty and love. It’s mysterious, creative, and meaningful. Take advantage of it while it’s here.
