Things to Know About Venus Opposing Neptune

by Rebecca Brents

From Jun 2002*

Venus in Leo Opposing Neptune in Aquarius

Venus in Leo has just formed an opposition with Neptune in Aquarius. This is an energy of extreme idealism which can prompt things like inappropriate or unrequited love attachments (in high school, we called them "crushes"), an unusual level of deception and "failure to relate to reality" in your personal relationships, and a kind of dreamy secrecy involving "things you enjoy."

Except for the possibility that you could delude yourself -- or let yourself be fooled -- into believing someone you know is something he (or she) is not ... this can be a rather benign energy. In some ways you give other people too much benefit of the doubt. You may see partners in highly romanticized ways -- which are surely bound to disappoint you when you realize the "reality" of them again when this aspect ends.

You may also play to the romantic fantasies of others ... encouraging their unrealistic visions of who you are, what you want, and what you are willing to provide to a partnership. The fact is, you may need a lot of love at this time, and be willing to concoct or manufacture out of whole cloth images and dreams that don't actually exist in order to satisfy this yearning.

This energy also encourages you to spend money you don't have, to buy things you don't need ... but that you dearly want at the moment, and to give money and "things" away rather charitably -- often in the hope they will be appreciated more than turns out to be the case.

The most positive side of this energy is an extraordinary support of artistic and creative efforts. If you have inclinations at all in this direction ... now is a great time to indulge these interests. The results may be extremely meaningful and personally revealing. Just don't expect them to bring you much coin ... and don't do them with that in mind in the first place.

Fortunately ... or unfortunately ... this time of living inside your rose-colored fantasies only lasts about 7 - 10 days. Then you get to sober up and reclaim your usual life again, so enjoy it any way you can.

Venus in General -- Your Inner Selves of Resource Management and Relationships ---> Support comes in many forms -- According to dime-store astrology ... the kind most people know from the little booklets they buy on newstands ... Venus in Astrology rules the two alluring topics of money and love. Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus and Libra, and there is, indeed, a connection here between Venus ... money ... and love.

What Does Venus Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Pink is a Venus color. -- Named for the goddess of love -- Venus, modestly shrouded in clouds when photographed, is named for the mythological goddess of love. It is often seen as the evening star -- so bright and shimmering some say it gets mistaken for a UFO. Maybe. Maybe not.

Venus Retrograde -- Realigning Your Values and Assets ---> Reassessing things of value ... -- Venus represents your important relationships, your important values, and the way you handle the things you value, especially material resources like money and possessions you need to support yourself.

Your Venus Energy -- So much more than love and money ---> Named for the goddess of love -- Venus the planet, and therefore Venus in Astrology, is named for the Roman goddess of love. That's the short definition of what she symbolizes, and the minute people hear that, their ears perk up and they want to know more, more, more. Her Greek counterpart was Aphrodite, but that's not the "more" people want to hear. Like all short-and-simple answers to complex questions though, this one is misleading and woefully incomplete.
