Venus trine Neptune: Transcending Separation

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.

Venus in Scorpio: Need for Intensity

On November 21, 08:22 AM ET, Venus transits from Libra to Scorpio. The Goddess of Love is now entering the Underworld: she is inviting us to deepen our relationships and to understand ourselves and others in more profound ways. As soon as Venus enters Scorpio, she invites us to dive into our Soul’s depths: Venus in Scorpio will promote an intense self-analysis and exploration of our inner world, our psychology, and our subconscious intentions and motivations.

During this transit, lasting until December 15, we may tend to be more defensive and distant, we need more time to trust others, and we may even test them to make sure they deserve our attention and energy. While Venus is in Scorpio, we constantly monitor and analyze our internal state, other people’s behavior, and the external environment, to detect any potential threat.


The Yin and the Yang side of Venus


Venus in Astrology symbolizes the way we relate to ourselves and others, how we deal with money and our material possessions, and it is the planet associated with our value systems and our resources. Venus has two sides, one of them directed inwardly, and the other one directed outwardly: the way the two sides manifest is tightly connected, as those we attract into our lives are reflecting our inner reality. 

The Yin or inner side of Venus rules the archetype of Taurus, and it corresponds with our values, our self-worth, our survival instinct, and the relationship we have with ourselves. The Yang side of Venus is directed outwardly: it correlates to the relationships we form with other people and it is associated with the sign of Libra. 


From Libra to Scorpio: Creating Deeper Intimacy


We can consider the Zodiac in its natural order as the progression of twelve stages of awareness or twelve phases of the evolution of consciousness. With the transition from Libra to Scorpio, our main orientation shifts from the Yang side of Venus to the Yin one: our focus turns within, on our psychology, and on the way everything works. There is a strong need for a deeper understanding of both the way we inwardly operate and the way other people inwardly function.

According to traditional Astrology, Venus is in her “Detriment” in Scorpio, meaning that the energies of the two archetypes can struggle to blend in a balanced way. Here, there may be too much intensity for Venus to feel comfortable expressing herself. While Venus in Libra is comfortable with compromise, diplomacy, and negotiation, with Venus in Scorpio finding balance can be harder: we want everything or nothing at all.

During her journey through the Underworld, Venus aims for a complete understanding of our limitations and the unconscious emotional and psychological dynamics involved in any situation. This transit is asking us to let go of any tendency to censor ourselves for the fear of being too much for others, too intense for being accepted and loved. Venus in Scorpio is about radical honesty: it is about sharing our deepest fears and vulnerabilities, acknowledging our need to be loved and seen for who we are.


Venus opposite Uranus & Venus trine Neptune


During her transit through Scorpio, Venus will oppose Uranus in Taurus and trine Neptune in Pisces. The exact alignments are perfecting on November 27 and December 5. Nonetheless, we will feel their influence for a few days before and after the exact dates, especially since we have an Eclipse right in the middle, on November 30.

With oppositions, we tend to experience the energy of the more distant planet, in this case, Uranus, through other people, issues, and situations that seem to be happening to us. Uranus is about freedom, eccentricity, rebellion, and surprises: the opposition to Venus may bring sudden shifts in our romantic and social life, unexpected revelations, and unusual events. Whatever takes place, its invitation is to let go of our dependency on other people and external conditions and to learn to feel safe and secure within ourselves.

On December 5, Venus in Scorpio will create a beautiful trine to Neptune in Pisces. Trines are aspects promoting an easy flow of energy and exchange of information between the planets involved. This alignment is supporting the integration of our sensitivity and intuition, and it is allowing us to be more receptive and psychically open within our relationships. While we may have some trouble understanding what is real and what is not real, the connection between Venus and Neptune will highly enhance our creativity and inspire us to connect with something much greater than us.

“Erotic longing is really a longing to merge with something greater than oneself. For every kind of love is a force that holds the promise of taking us beyond the limitations of our individual lives.” ― Julianne Davidow


Venus in Scorpio: Integrating Fears & Learning to Be Vulnerable


During the transit of Venus through Scorpio, our inner magnetism changes, and our point of attraction shifts dramatically: we are longing for someone who is able to guide us into the depths of our Soul and who, in turn, desires that we do the same for them. We want intense experiences, because they ultimately lead to self-understanding.

While we intensely desire true healing, intimacy, and connection, we also tend to conceal our emotions, our inadequacies, our insecurities, and our vulnerability. Venus in Scorpio represents an invitation to be totally honest with both ourselves and others about our feelings, emotions, and needs. 

Take care not to fall into the lower expressions of Venus in Scorpio: it is a transit that may reflect a tendency to generate a sense of safety and security in unhealthy ways, such as power plays and controlling behaviors.

The higher evolutionary purpose of Venus’ journey through the Underworld is to help us deal with deep fears of loss, betrayal, and abandonment. During this time, we are encouraged to become aware of any tendency to manipulate others in order to keep them dependent on us. Unconscious behavior patterns we have been carrying since childhood can emerge at this time, and they have the potential to be uncovered and understood.

Ultimately, Venus in Scorpio will invite us to deepen our relationships with both ourselves and others, to create deep emotional bonds, to share who we truly are fearlessly, to let go of social masks, and stop limiting ourselves to surface-level interactions.
