When the planet of love (Venus) is combined with the planet of spirituality and dreams (Neptune) in the natal chart, you’re looking at a sensitive romantic. You’re also looking at someone who can delude themselves, and their partner, in a relationship. The hard aspects (conjunction, square, opposition, inconjunct), between natal Venus and Neptune create tension that can lead to dizzying romantic highs and crushing lows. The magic of Neptune glorifies Venus’ concepts of love and relating.
The Venus/Neptune Personality
The hallmark of the Venus/Neptune person is their perpetual search and dissatisfaction. Their pattern goes something like this: they are drawn to someone (usually a creative person), and gaze at this miracle through rose-colored glasses. They believe they have found The One and profess their undying love. The Venus/Neptune person sets up a pedestal upon which their partner is placed. Emotions are fevered and glorious, until the Venus/Neptune person notices flaws in their Soul mate.
This wake-up period can be excruciatingly painful for the Venus/Neptune person. They may realize that their love was a misguided form of compassion as they attempted to “save” someone. Or they may simply realize that their partner is human (like everyone else). Disappointment sets in and both parties feel betrayed. The Venus/Neptune person wonders what happened to their divine Soul mate. Their partner wonders why the Venus/Neptune person, initially so romantic, has become distant and vague.
