Oh God

Sign of the times.
Venus square Neptune. 
Christ, it is an intoxicating spell to be writhing underneath love straight to the vein. 
Nothing. like. it.

Blissed-out euphoria sings and rings every cell, goose-flesh pops, skin blushes, eyes roll and convulsions of heavenly grace deliver transcendent, ecstatic revelations.

I just described an orgasm, and I also just described a religious experience.

Divinely compassionate, the inspired beauty of high qi Venus trine Neptune and Venus in Pisces is both the Love of Beliefs and also Believing in Love.  Imagine doe-eyed cooing lovers happily sailing twinkling waves into infinity on the good ship lollypop.

Venus square Neptune lovers often crash long before the peak experience.
Ideals are unrealistically heaven-set, they are prone to deception in love – both coming and going – King Illusion meets Queen Delusion stumbling drunk in rose-colored glasses, doomed to be devoted and dysfunctional unhappily ever after.

Sound harsh..?
Well, I own this one, I know it well – the stark reality is Venus square Neptune sucks.
I consider myself fairly intelligent, but ffs don’t point me at love unless you want to watch the stupid unfold, double-time.  How infuriatingly embarrassing to be a fool for love every. single. time.  Point me at love, and ya might as well pitch my brains right out the window, ’cause I won’t be using ’em.  For the record, this 9th house multi-Virgo, Mercury MC hates it, just hates it  -the idiotic love snafus I get myself into.

So what, my friends, you wonder, is the cure for Venus square Neptune ?
A stiff shot of Saturn.
Real work.

Makes me think of this great love – fight scene.
Two-second rebound rate.  good one. 
(from here)


“You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you’re a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I’m not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you’re back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.”   “So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day.”

Although I joke with my mother that I don’t get along with women, (Moon [women]opposite Neptune), the fact is I don’t have all that much luck with men either (Venus/Jupiter [big love] square Neptune).

Which leads me to cure number two.
Get right with your Goddess/God

However you choose to fulfill this is your full meal deal, your ticket to love paradise.  Give and give and then give some more spiritual love until you pass out.
Wake up, repeat.

I have Sun/Uranus/Pluto in 9, so my spiritual tastes are a bit left of center.
Not surprisingly, I find the stigmata fascinating (astrology of saints, martyrs here).

Ecstasy and Torment
Claim and Surrender
Visions and Reality

You see the 8th house Venus/Jupes square Scop Neptune pattern, yes..?
St. Francis of Assisi is the first recorded stigmatic in Christian history.  According to Catholic Encyclopedia there are 321 recorded stigmatics in whom there is every reason to believe in a Divine action – only 41 of the 321 are men.  Interesting, yes ?

When blood from open uninfected stigmatic wounds smells pleasant (perfume is Venus) it is called the Odour of Sanctity. 
Who knew ?  Oddly fascinating. 
Venus is exalted in Pisces, so figures when ecstatics rock the stigmata, the heavenly scent rolls off ’em.

Also interesting that ecstasy (Neptune) means to stand outside of the ordinary self, Sun (self) gets a bit cuckoo weird free agent in the sign of its fall, Aquarius (miracles).
To cure Venus square Neptune we have to stand outside of SELF love and be of SERVICE to love instead.  Then the miracles start to happen.
