Venus conjunct Neptune on the surface is glamorous, romantic and beautiful. The energy is sultry, alluring and misty-eyed. Folk with this aspect are usually popular because they are so good at conjuring up such fantastic image for themselves. Needless to say, they are extremely charming. People with this aspect have an eye for art and harmonious landscapes. The female form is often idolised and placed on a pedestal.
The problem with this aspect is that it finds it very hard to accept ugliness in any form. This is the aspect for the fairy tale romance, and these folk will often fall in love with the unattainable. Neptune is the planet of celibacy and unrequited love so put this with Venus and it is really not surprising that these people often find themselves in love affairs with the unattainable or even with those in other dimensions! Love often feels supernatural.
Another possibility is being in a love affair that is hidden as Neptune is so deceptive. The fact that the meetings are so clandestine makes the swooning factor all the more intense. These folk can have many affairs while married, but it is never their fault! They are the victim of a loveless marriage or some other ‘pity-me’ story. The imagination here creates stunning masterpieces as these folk have such an eye for colour, aesthetics and harmony.
Love On A Pedestal
Music will be lush and full of yearning and drama. This is the perfect aspect for the serenading, romantic crooner or the composer of love songs. This aspect does very well in advertising as it can make the most boring product glamorous and enticing. These folk are the best seducers you will ever find! Fashion photography has a very Venus/Neptune vibration with all the airbrushing and soft focus that can make even a plain model look like a goddess.
It would seem that is would be a wonderful aspect to have, but it is actually a very difficult one to live with if it is very strong in your chart. It will be hard to maintain the euphoric, butterflies-in-the-stomach love feeling in the long term. Living with your partner will melt the best behaviour mask off eventually and Venus conjunct Neptune cannot abide the wrinkles and farts of an ordinary relationship. These folk can make very bad choices with their relationships because they construct a fantasy person of what they want to believe.
Living in the real world can be very hard for Venus conjunct Neptune. These people can become love addicts, but not so much a sex addict. Neptune is a spiritual energy so can be very platonic. It is the courtly love of the medieval times where a troubadour or knight would lavish attention on a woman and treat her like a goddess but never, ever go further than kissing her hand. This person can devote themselves to a partner in a very referent and religious sense, but consummating the union is not the priority.
Venus Conjunction Neptune
Fyodor Dostoyevsky was a Russian novelist. “Dostoevsky’s literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmospheres of 19th-century Russia, and engage with a variety of philosophical and religious themes.” He is most famous for the book “Crime & Punishment” (1866) a book about the covering-up of a murder and seen through the eyes of the murderer. In the book, we almost sympathise with the protagonist’s victim status (Neptune) as we hear about his terrible life circumstances. In his personal life, Dostoyevsky had many extra-marital affairs. He was, however “profoundly religious, followed Orthodox practice, and regularly read the Gospels and Heinrich Zschokke’s Die Stunden der Andacht (“Hours of Devotion”), which “preached a sentimental version of Christianity entirely free from dogmatic content and with a strong emphasis on giving Christian love a social application.” ~ Wikipedia
