On December 5, 11:52 PM ET, Venus in Scorpio creates a harmonic trine to Neptune in Pisces. We have been feeling this energy for a few days already, and we will be able to harness the benefic influence of this aspect for approximately five more days.
Trines are angles of 120° degrees: they represent supportive aspects that promote the integration of the energies of planets transiting signs of the same element, in this case, Water. The alignment between Venus-Neptune is increasing our intuition, our receptivity, and our psychic openness: for this reason, it’s extremely important to be mindful of what we are taking in.
The current planetary configuration is reflecting increased sensitivity to what is happening in the world, as well as to other people’s energetic and emotional realities. As we are also in the midst of Eclipse season, it is crucial to find ways to ground, get back to our center, align with our own frequency, and balance our inner state.
Venus: Romantic Love, Values, and Relationship to Self
Venus, the ruler of both Taurus and Libra, is the planet related to how we relate to others and how we inwardly relate with ourselves. Venus correlates with how we manage our finances and our resources, with our value system, with our sense of self-worth, and with the extent to which we value ourselves, our energy, and our time.
Venus in Scorpio reflects an inclination to seek intense, deep, soul-bonding relationships: satisfaction is not possible with superficial pursuits or interactions. We tend to want it all and lose trust easily if we feel the other person is holding something back or if we sense some sort of dishonesty. During this transit, we are more introspective than usual: we tend to analyze our own psychological dynamics and to seek the real motivations and intentions behind our conscious desires and needs.
Neptune: Unconditional Love and Divine Innocence
Neptune is a transpersonal planet, and it takes 165 years to orbit the Zodiac. It is very far away from us, it takes about 14-15 years to transits through a sign, and its movements always reflect collective experiences and events. Neptune in Astrology is considered to be the Higher Octave of Venus, meaning that it is a higher vibrational expression of the same energetic quality. While Venus corresponds to romantic love, Neptune is related to divine and unconditional love.
Neptune has been in Pisces since 2012, bringing the dissolution of many of our illusions and delusions, while allowing us to get closer to our spiritual nature. Neptune correlates to the sense of meaninglessness and disenchantment that we feel when we realize our perception of reality is not the absolute truth.
Neptune corresponds to the loss of innocence after an experience of disillusionment, as well as to a conscious return to innocence, that can happen only when we come into contact with our Higher Self and adopt a spiritual perspective of life. Accepting what we encounter on our journey and surrendering to something greater than ourselves is what helps us make the most out of any Neptune transit, which we will never be able to make complete sense of.
Venus trine Neptune: Finding Balance and Holding Boundaries
With Venus-Neptune aspects, we tend to idealize people, situations, and relationships, and to see the world through rose-colored glasses. Seeing only the positive aspects of someone or something is easier than usual.
Contacts between Venus and Neptune remind us that, to be able to form conscious and healthy relationships with other people, we need to have a clear sense of self, of our values, strong self-worth and self-respect. Holding proper boundaries becomes essential to avoid losing ourselves in the other, or in our own illusions and ideals. For this reason, we need to make sure of how much we are able to give and what we need to receive.
The trine supports the integration of the energies of Venus and Neptune and helps us find a balance between extremes. Nonetheless, we need to be mindful that sustaining conditions of harmony requires constant work and honest communication.
Venus trine Neptune: Bridging Spirit and Matter
With Venus-Neptune aspects, we tend to be highly idealistic. However, it is also crucial to make sure we are practical: holding on to ideals and dreams is not enough. We still live in a three-dimensional world with all the conditions and limitations it implies, and we need to be able to navigate through them.
The trine between Venus and Neptune gives us the opportunity to find a better balance between the energy we direct towards material concerns and the energy we direct towards our spiritual pursuits. This aspect represents an invitation to let go of any disempowering belief around financial abundance and material security and to work towards healing the split between Spirit and matter.
Venus trine Neptune: Transmuting Emotions & Transcending Separation
During these days, we are going to feel more empathic and sensitive than usual: artistic and creative endeavors represent a great way to channel and transmute the intense emotional energy that many of us are experiencing. Both Venus and Neptune correlate with the arts, with creativity and inspiration, with the ways we try to generate more beauty and harmony in the world and express something we are not able to verbalize.
The trine between Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces invites us to find new ways to connect with the Divine through our relationships with others, and through artistic and creative pursuits. Ultimately, this planetary alignment invites us to nurture our Spirit by connecting with a state of flow and pure presence, and to transcend the illusion of separation by seeing part of ourselves in all those people we are relating with.
