Venus/Neptune joins together the pleasure, love and beauty of Venus with the spiritual, the inspiring, the enchanting, and the imagined associated with Neptune:
The Venus/Neptune combination can create of love (Venus) a spiritual inspiration (Neptune) often invoking poetry, such as beautiful (Venus) images of water (Neptune). The Venus/Neptune combination in the chart of musician and poet Leonard Cohen can be seen in the following lines:
“And I'll dance with you in Vienna,
I'll be wearing a river's disguise.
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder
my mouth on the dew of your thighs.
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
with the photographs there and the moss.
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty,
my cheap violin and my cross.”
The Venus/Neptune combination in the chart of Sophia Lauren can be seen in the following quotes which join together themes of love and beauty (Venus) with the immaterial, the imagined, and water (Neptune): “Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got.” “Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” “If you haven't cried, your eyes cannot be beautiful.”
