Venus Square Neptune
With the square, there can be difficulties with the inhibition of emotions, creativity and relationships with others. Part of this difficulty arises from an extreme sensitivity of feelings which have never been properly integrated.
The square is one of the Neptune aspects that stimulates those emotional-level fogs and mists, creating a consequence of being unable to see clearly and of being liable to make misjudgments; and which fuels tendencies of self-deception and mental distortion.
These factors tend to make you vulnerable to deception, prone to suffer from your own reality projections and filters, and from the choices and actions of others who may be similarly psychologically influenced. Intimate relationships can be a source of challenges, especially when you have made some form of emotional commitment, as often your choice of lover or partner results from misjudgment.
You are basically idealistic, yet this is likely to attract you towards involvement with minority cults or foreign religions because of their glamour’s and strange fascinations. In several ways, these are symptomatic of an inner need of transformation, of the need to redeem negative patterns dominating your life.
Sexuality as a powerful aspect of the impulse for relationships can be a prime area in which such dilemmas can be expressed. This can be revealed through needs for multiple partners, searching for a perfect though unattainable lover, yet being unprepared and unwilling to actually commit yourself to a real flesh-and-blood person. It may emerge through excessive sexual imagination, where unfulfilled sexual imagery and desires may be intertwined with underlying and repressed emotionally based complexes or are practiced secretly and conspire to build an area of denial in your life.
Changes are probably needed in order to integrate the Neptune energy into your life, so that it ceases to display its more negative face of irresolution. Your attitudes to others through relationships need to be redefined, so that any paranoia is dropped, as well as any tendencies toward exploitation by yourself or against yourself. Standing free and independent is preferable, at least as an initial cleansing process. Turning within through meditation or forms of self-therapy is an ideal path to take, so that you begin to release the old patterns, discover a new center by cleaning out old illusions, and see through new eyes.
Meditation is a deconditioning technique, sequentially liberating through practice, and redirecting the energy flow of the mind not inwards instead of outwards, so the energy acts as a penetrating disperser of restrictive psychological patterns.
