Venus is one of the personal planets, governing the aspect of our personality that values connection with others, our aesthetic tastes, and the things we value. Neptune is a transformational planet – one of the outer planets that are invisible to the naked eye but nevertheless exert a strong influence on our human lives. It is often said that Neptune is the “higher octave” of Venus – where Venus relates to human love and the human experience, Neptune’s role is to assist with the process of transcending beyond the human limitations to an experience of divine bliss and a direct connection with the experience of celestial spirituality.
A square (90 degree) aspect between two planets is a strong one, and therefore can sometimes create trouble by pointing out the cracks and fissures in our experience. A square from Venus is usually not that difficult to manage (and only lasts a day or so). Here we have Venus in Gemini, desiring conversation and understanding, challenged by Neptune in Pisces. The interaction of Venus to Neptune can open the heart and the creative imagination which feeds the soul but we must also be wary of potential confusion as we slip into expanded consciousness. The Sagittarius Moon, fresh off the energies of the eclipse, sets off this square in the morning and mid-day EDT /afternoon UTC so that time may be particularly blurry but the fog will soon fade and clarity will return when the Moon moves into Capricorn later tonight. ❤️
