Neptune Square or Opposite Venus
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Neptune square or opposite your natal Venus. Romance could prove upsettingly full of illusions. Sometimes this transit stimulates your desire to help the less fortunate. The problem is that often the people who you are coming into contact with now are parasites who are only interested in taking advantage of your generosity. Relationship co-dependencies are common, and lack of proper boundaries or invasion of personal space is more likely. In financial dealings you are not likely to get what you pay for now unless you are extremely vigilant about scrutinizing the value of your purchases. Swindlers may be more commonplace. Your budget is likely to be either non-existent or chaotic. Artists and musicians usually find this period to be creatively fruitful.
If Venus is lord of your 1st house, others may see what they want to in you and tend to project their ideals onto you or vice versa.
If lord of the 2nd, you may not be very realistic about finances now. Be careful about spending. You may be the mark for a con artist if you're not careful.
If lord of the 3rd, you may tend to water down your communication so much that others don't understand what you're saying. This may be because you're afraid to be too blunt. Relatives may become too dependent upon you.
If lord of the 4th, be more careful about who you make a guest in your home. They may take advantage of your hospitality in ways that you hadn't planned. You seek the ideal home environment.
If lord of the 5th, this is a very romantic and creative period artistically. You may meet a new love in your life who seems to be a perfect match for you, but it could prove to be a disappointment.
If lord of the 6th, you may have difficulty staying on schedule and might tend to be late for work more often. Employers might consider you lazy if you're not more diligent.
If lord of the 7th, be careful about getting married at this time as you might be prone to marry the "ideal" and not the "real" person. Relationships not be what they appear to be. Sometimes indicates the start of an illicit affair.
If lord of the 8th, don't get involved in new credit arrangements at this time as the fine print is likely to prove too costly.
If lord of the 9th, you may find travel to exotic locations irresistable now, but the trip may not turn out as expected. Be careful about legal advice given to you now as it may be faulty.
If lord of the 10th, if you are a musician or artist, this can be a very creative period for you, but others may misunderstand what you truly represent. If not, you may feel uncertain about your career direction, or others may try to put you in a role that may not fit.
If lord of the 11th, you may not see your friends for who they are now. If making new friends, wait a while before trusting them completely.
If lord of the 12th, your compassion is increased, but you might attract more parasites than usual.
