Having a firm grasp on reality without feeling like we have to sacrifice our imagination can be a full time job to some. With Venus square Neptune in the birth chart there’s a suggestion that an adjustment needs to be made in how one’s views people and relationships in general.
Developmental tension is present between one’s idealism, values and sense of unity. When operating on a dysfunctional level, this aspect suggests that one distorts perceptions of those that they’re intimately involved in and engages in “selective relating”, thereby deleting information from their experience that may cause them pain and choosing to opt for a less “traumatic” version of events.
In the worst case scenario, this individual ends up as a victim of their own rose colored spectacles and projections.
They may even go as far as to create a “pretend partner” who responds to their every request and wish in a way which supports their illusion while declining interaction of a more authentic sort out of fear it will break the “spell.”
Working with this aspect on a conscious level, one has the capacity to offer unconditional, non-judgmental acceptance of the highest caliber to another human being. Boundaries are recognized, but the relationship doesn’t have barriers to deeper intimacy because of the choice to face reality in an uncensored fashion.
