- Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune Rx in Pisces: 16 deg
Venus in Virgo has exacting standards for money, relationships and self-esteem. There is an urge for perfection, purity and improvement. Neptune can either expand these goals as you attempt to transcend your reality with the perfect relationship, the perfect appearance, etc. or erode the facts so all that's left is the urge to sacrifice in the name of love.
Nothing wrong with transcendence, and a bit of sacrifice can be grounding. But when taken too far (which will happen with this opposition) you can end up chasing the impossible or becoming a victim. One of the Virgo archetypes is slave. Think about this - what/who are you a slave to?
If you're wallowing in sadness or disappointment because you just know that you'll never be good enough/beautiful enough, that's another Neptune trick - you avoid reality (and possible solutions) by diving into the "nevers" and refusing to come up for air. Why bother when you'll never be happy?
Watch out for extremes. Perfect love/beauty and and total ugliness/ impurity are two sides of the same Venus/Neptune coin.
Projection is the biggest risk- victim/saviour, nurse/patient, virgin/whore. The projections can go either way - you're the target or the projector. Make sure you're taking ownership of your issues, and if someone is projecting onto you, know that you don't have to take on their stuff. You are not their projection. Consider how love and help work in your life - do you want to be healed/do they want to be healed? Not everyone needs to be fixed and not everyone is capable of helping.
In general, a Venus/Neptune opposition suggests romantic illusion, unrequited love or avoidance of the real relationship/money/self-esteem issue. If it's all their fault, that's a red flag. If they are your dream come true...another red flag. Try to stay grounded today, and if there's anything you're avoiding, it's a good bet that you're allowing Neptune to dissolve what you know is right or true.
