Feeling a little insecure? Well, it’s no surprise; when Venus squares Neptune on 27th May 2021, this can have you feeling a little insecure especially about who you are and how you look.

Venus Square Neptune Transit

You must realize though that what you’re feeling today should be taken with a pinch of salt. Your poor self-image and lack of self-confidence today are merely illusions thanks to the planetary alignment.

And it’s not just yourself that you’re feeling a little lackluster about today. Disappointment or feelings of insecurity can also be experienced in your love life. Today’s climate not only causes you to see a distorted image of yourself but also of someone else. So you can actually ignore somebody’s flaws which could potentially lead to relationship problems down the track. And that can mean sooner rather than later.

With Venus being the planet of love and Neptune being the planet of emotions, spirituality, fantasy and higher planes, this transit can lead you to feel the need for deeper emotional connections. But this transit also paves the way for confusion in relationships, so it’s probably best for you to reserve any commitment until the transit is over.

Under this transit, you may need to give yourself a bit of a break too. Don’t feel guilty if your lack of self-discipline sees you break your diet or you decide to skip the gym. It’s okay to feel a little lazy and in need of some unhealthy comforts. That said, you should watch out for going overboard. If you’re somebody who is susceptible to addiction, now is the time to be extra wary of drugs and alcohol.

Venus Square Neptune natal

If you have Venus square Neptune in your natal chart, you may have challenges when it comes to self-love and self-esteem. Throughout your life, you must find ways to actively show yourself love and learn to love yourself. It is by loving yourself that you will have living and healthy relationships with others.

If you don’t do this important step you will find disappointment in love. But it isn’t as easy as simply saying you love yourself off and then moving on. This might be a constant battle for you. When you meet others, you may feel like you don’t fit in or like they are judging you. It is like a natural reaction for you and as much as you tell yourself that you are simply in a low self-esteem cycle, it won’t make what you feel less powerful or real.

Neptune is the ruler of mirrors, film and screens, so even though this natal transit may make you avoid looking at yourself, a really great way of overcoming this transit’s challenges is to stand before a mirror and repeat positive affirmations about yourself.

And although we regularly talk about beauty being skin deep, with Venus ruling beauty, you may want to spend time and money making yourself feel more beautiful on the outside. And there’s no shame in that, but you do need to make sure that you are focusing on the inside as well as the outside.

You must also watch out that you don’t over-romanticize relationships and ignore obvious flaws. Even after you love yourself, you will have a tendency to be blind to people’s faults. While this can sometimes be an advantage as you give everybody a fair chance it is something that you need to be wary of.
