Venus and Neptune in favorable aspect

Astrological aspects: general introduction

The analysis of a natal chart must be as comprehensive as possible. This is what we do as we make our personalized reports available in our e-shop. It must be borne in mind that many astrologers concentrate on the interpretation of planets in signs and in houses, and of angles, without paying enough attention to aspects. On the contrary, we believe that when aspects involve personal planets between themselves or slow-moving planets, they are of fundamental importance. In all cases, they are at least as significant as the Ascendant or the Sun. This is particularly relevant when the orb is tight (i.e. when the aspect is exact). This is the criterion we apply for this new series of articles which describe how well-known personalities experience certain aspects.


Venus and Neptune in harmonious aspect

The aspects linking Venus and Neptune in the natal chart involve two planets having natural affinities. Their alliance is strengthened when there is a favorable major connection, a positive conjunction (i.e. unchallenged by a negative aspect), a sextile, or a trine.

The defining feature of Venus is that she holds dual rulership over the signs of Taurus and Libra. This is why the nature of Venus is slightly subtler than the only and obvious symbolic areas of love, beauty, and art.

Thus, Venus relates to elegance, sensuality, charm in general, willingness to please, gentleness, and friendship. This article does not deal with Venus' negative facets such as whims, indolence, selfishness, excessive indulgence in desires, and superficiality. Besides, it must be added that in traditional astrology, Venus is described first and foremost as a benevolent planet.

As for Neptune, he is a slow-moving generational planet. It takes him approximately 14 years to move to the next sign. His effects are diffuse and collective, except when he forms an aspect with a personal object of the natal chart, for instance an angle or a fast-moving planet.

Astrologers consider that Neptune is the "higher octave" of Venus. Neptune is philanthropic, generous, symbiotic, and brings about hope of universal fraternity. People having a strong Neptune are usually gentle, dreamy, mystical, sentimental, slightly fanatic. In addition, they behave selflessly and open-handedly. They are extremely sensitive and perceive atmospheres with sharpness.

Neptune and Venus have a few noticeable differences. He is driven by his taste for spiritual quest, a vivid imagination, and an acute intuition. He does not have the same carnal appetite as Venus who is more down to earth, and whose goals are more tangible.

When Venus and Neptune are associated through a harmonious aspect, the very subtle range of the feelings experienced proves to be extremely rich. It reinforces the importance of the affective life, in the broadest sense, simultaneously in the fields of love, friendship, and relationships.

Receptiveness is huge. It implies natural empathy between the people involved. It is as if they felt in their own body the effects of their bonds with those who are dear to them.

Both Venus and Neptune have the same capacity to get immersed in ambiances or even to develop a symbiotic association with the crowd, provided these planets share the same values as that crowd.

Indisputably, there is some fuzziness in the way this planetary combination is experienced. It is to the extent that people influenced by this configuration are most of the time unable to explain rationally what is happening inside them.

In all cases, such an aspect constitutes a considerable asset, because it heralds a romantic destiny full of emotions. It is also possible that they become a source of inspiration for others.

Actually, we shall note that the personalities mentioned in this article seem to embody people whose aura outshines their professional achievement.

Lastly, the harmonious connection between Venus and Neptune quite often brings about a special artistic talent, especially for music or for fine art.

In order to better explain this aspect, we are mentioning several well-known personalities (here Vanessa Paradis (harmonious conjunction), Charles III of the United Kingdom (harmonious conjunction), Sophia Loren (harmonious conjunction), and Claude Debussy (trine)). This article deliberately isolates the aspects so as to better describe them. For this reason, it claims on no account to be a psychological analysis of the celebrity in question, for whom many other articles are available in the "Focus" section.

It is possible to find thousands of other horoscopes having Venus and Neptune in favorable aspect (or any other aspects), with the online tool search. The planets, positions in sign and in house as well as the orb, are configurable.

Vanessa Paradis

Let us celebrate the singer and actress who became famous when she reached the age of puberty. In 1987, a blonde young girl showed up in charts, lost in the far too large sweat-shirt she was wearing, and whispering the story of Joe the Taxi. The song was awarded a disk of platinum in France, and was a hit worldwide, with 3,000,000 copies sold. There was immediately an unusual infatuation with the child-like voice of the "cartoon" artist, as she herself said.

Anyway, her tone is very identifiable and makes people feel like protecting her. It is probably one of the reasons why so many seasoned celebrities regarded her as their muse, from Lenny Kravitz to Karl Lagerfeld, and in passing, Serge Gainsbourg.

Vanessa Paradis is her real name which fits so well such a major planetary aspect of the chart. She experienced a real fairy tale when she became the long-term companion of Johnny Depp, after having dated Florent Pagny and Lenny Kravitz in particular.

In Paradis' chart, Venus is in tight conjunction with Neptune in Sagittarius in the 1st House. Mars is involved too - in conjunction with an orb of 9°, and provides energy to this combination – exactly like the sextile from Pluto. This indicates that Paradis was destined to pursue an international career and to enjoy an immense popularity.

Now that she is back in France, the singer and actress has never disappointed her fans, despite a separation which has destroyed a few illusions.

She seems to have recovered harmony by sharing artistic projects with her inspired husband, Samuel Benchetrit.

Charles III of the United Kingdom

As surprising as it may be at first sight, King Charles III has a beautiful Venus-Neptune conjunction in Libra, tightly posited on the Imum Coeli.

In this House which represents the home and the family, both planets are lucky because they undergo no hostility.

Some may point to the opposition with the Midheaven which might illustrate inner conflicts meant to combat feelings unworthy of Charles' status. Everyone knows that a conjunction with an angle must not be considered as an opposition with the opposite angle; before anything else, it must be interpreted as being linked to the angle in which the planet is posited.

This configuration indicates that Charles III is a great romantic who has never disowned his youth romance, Camilla Parker Bowles. We have seen that he has been able to stay on course, against all odds, even though he has not been too clever when he had to publicly clarify his feelings, preferring to remain silent (the 4th House is about private life). The Sun on the cuspide of the 5th House (love) and in Scorpio (mysteries) reinforces this state of affairs.

Furthermore, Charles III demonstrated the extent of the possibilities of this aspect through his interest in the artistic world. Described as a highly cultivated man, Charles III is a tried-and-tested music lover. When he was young, he learned the trumpet and the piano, then he performed in the orchestra of his school in Scotland. Later on, he declared about music that "It's that wonderful sensation of being part of an immense whole", which is in full agreement with Neptune, the planet of symbiotic relationships.

In addition, the King has granted his patronage to innumerable music institutions, among which The Royal Opera House, Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. A list which is far from being exhaustive.

Sophia Loren

Other times, other customs. At the dawn of the fifties, when Sofia Scicolone came directly from an anonymous suburb of Naples, she was noticed at the Miss Italy beauty contest, but it was highly unlikely that she could pursue a Hollywood career.

What followed is well known, given the impressive filmography of the star that Sophia Loren has become.

She made the head of Cary Grant spin as well as that of other worldwide celebrities. However, with Venus in conjunction with Neptune in the sign of Virgo and in the 9th House, she seemed to have remained very serious in the way she adjusted to the demands of an environment that she found extremely exotic.

All her life she has been faithful to Carlo Ponti, the producer who discovered her and who became her lawful husband until he died from pneumonia in January 2017.

Whereas Loren had the world at her feet, she had always obstinately behaved like an "anti-star". We find here the typical sides of the conjunction in Virgo, i.e. modesty, the pragmatism of the sign, and a certain naivety, duly corseted.

This configuration enabled her to keep a cool head and to avoid the excesses of the Mecca of cinema. Currently, she lives a very discreet life in Geneva, a city suitable for her delicate and reserved temperament.

Claude Debussy

An influential and prolific composer, Claude Debussy is in many regards a living illustration of a nice trine between Venus in Leo and Neptune in Aries. Fire rushes to spice up this harmonious aspect and to prompt Debussy to significantly develop his style.

He was first a fervent admirer of Richard Wagner, but he distanced himself after a while and denounced "the romantic rut of German music".

From then on, he was regarded as the precursor of modern music, and no one has forgotten his works inspired by other artistic disciplines, painting or poetry, from Verlaine to Monet.

The Fire of the signs involved in this aspect gives us the portrait of a self-confident (Leo) and innovative (Aries) musician.

To prepare the program of his masterwork, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, inspired by a poem by Mallarmé, he used a wording which perfectly corresponds to the Venus-Neptune duet.

He wrote that his aim was to plunge the audience into various atmospheres in the middle of which flow the desires and the dreams of Aegipan, a half-man half-animal divinity having most of the times the feet and the ears of a goat.

When he felt tired to pursue fearful nymphs and shy naiads, the divinity of the countryside indulged in a voluptuous sleep.

What better proof could Debussy give of the extraordinary role of the subtilities of this aspect?

We also find the influence of Venus and Neptune in his romantic life. Indeed, Debussy had a host of gorgeous and famous lovers for which he composed many works.
