A mature Scorpio has a built-in detector that can tell when the truth is not being lived, both by oneself and by other people. This can make life very uncomfortable, as you know when those around you are not being completely honest. The chances are they are not being deliberately false; it is just that they cannot see the truth beneath the surface of things as clearly as you can. Therefore, a Scorpio has to learn acceptance and understanding, as well as trying to sense how far to go in challenging the falsehood, how much the other person is able to accept about him or herself. Compatibility with others may not come easily.
Scorpio is co-ruled by the planet Pluto, which symbolises all that goes on beneath the level of consciousness. Pluto challenges innocence, and forces us to learn from experience.
Venus in Sagittarius would indicate a tendency to form relationships which offer an escape from what might be perceived as the swamp of Scorpio, and perhaps a strong desire to travel and experience foreign cultures. There is nothing wrong with an escape hatch being available, but a more fruitful use of Venus in Sagittarius might be to find situations, maybe relationships, which offer the opportunity to find meaning out of your rich experience of life.
