When Venus in one person's chart forms an aspect to another
The conjunction of Venus and
Neptune in a romantic comparison
implies a highly romantic bond between the two individuals. When
they meet, there is a dreamy, other-worldly energy between them.
The Venus person, in particular, finds the Neptune person
inexplicably attractive - even ideal on a romantic level. There can be a tendency
for the Venus person to
assign the Neptune person traits of the Venus person's ideal
lover. The Neptune person is generally intrigued and wants Venus to keep that idealized image of him or her, at least
at the beginning. Over time, the Neptune person might feel
pressured to meet that ideal image, and vaguely worried that he or
she won't be able to measure up. There is a tolerant energy
between the two, and that can be extremely pleasurable. If the
Neptune person feels like he or she is not loved for who he or she
really IS, problems can erupt. Even more problems arise when the
Venus person begins to make excuses for his or her Neptune
partner's real traits, in order to reconcile and perpetuate the
romantic ideal he or she assigned Neptune from the very beginning.
The Neptune person generally doesn't want to hurt the Venus
native, but he or she may begin to back off in subtle ways if he
or she feels too much pressure to fit Venus' image of him or her.
Neptune may literally "fade away" and leave Venus
feeling unsatisfied, hurt, and wondering what the heck happened!
The main problem with this configuration is projecting an ideal
lover onto the partner, and feeling let down when reality enters
the picture, or when Neptune "escapes" by retreating
further and further away. If, however, this configuration is
expressed more realistically, and Venus simply enjoys looking past
Neptune's faults without experiencing let-down, then this
combination works best.
The square, quincunx, and opposition aspects of Venus and Neptune in synastry generally emphasize the vacillating and withdrawing theme
of Venus-Neptune described above. Venus needs to be aware that if he or she falls
in love with a romantic ideal instead of his or her real partner,
Neptune will most likely retreat. Venus may go through periods of
excessive trusting of the partner and swing to excessive fear that
the partner cannot be trusted. The emotional rollercoaster can be
unbearable if Venus rides on it for too long. Neptune must be
extra careful not to promise more than he or she can deliver, in
an attempt to make Venus feel better, remembering that
"errors of omission" count as misleading. Neptune might
have a hard time dealing with Venus directly, especially because
it doesn't seem that Venus will listen to reason or even
wants to see reality.
The sextile and trine between Venus
and Neptune in synastry implies a real tolerance between the two.
Venus, in particular, is willing to overlook Neptune's faults, and
Neptune is generally very pleased to be loved in such a tolerant
manner. This is a dreamy and romantic combination in which the two
individuals feel like their partner enhances their lives
