Venus in Libra trine Neptune in Aquarius
Venus in Libra (interest in cooperative relationships) has formed a trine with Neptune in Aquarius (uniquely personal spiritual views) ... an extremely fun and sociable combination.
When Venus is trine to Neptune, the energy you have to work with is social and artistic, cultured and ingenious -- especially in projects that involve the creative or intuitive arts. But the methods you choose in your efforts, and the results you produce, may not be all that practical. Unusual ideas and alliances are possible -- especially ones that affect relationships. Sometimes under this aspect, meetings with others have a "fated" quality that gives this energy a special, romantic mystique.
Ordinarily, it denotes a time when emotions run deep and sympathies are gently offered. Empathy is powerful ... and a therapeutic understanding of those in your relationships can be extremely healing -- if such is needed. Spiritual motives are featured in your choices ... and the connection you feel with those you love (and those you can love) is compelling indeed.
This energy, too, will last about ten days.

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.
