Ascendant opposite Neptune

An idealistic illusion

Kelli Fox

This is a tricky influence for a love affair. It signifies one of a few different possibilities, all of which have to do with deceiving yourselves in some way. One possibility is that your lover idealizes you to the point that they aren't really dealing with you as a real person -- instead they're in love with the image they've created.

While all love affairs have a certain amount of unrealistic projection that's part of the feeling of love itself -- after all, that's the good stuff, the emotionally overwhelming stuff -- as you can imagine, it can be quite a letdown when your partner realizes that they're in love with someone they've made up, and not the very real (read: flawed) human being who's actually standing in front of them. Another possibility, somewhat similar in tone, is that your lover sees your flaws and limitations, and casts themselves in the role of savior, there to dole out selfless love and devotion to help you improve yourself or your station in life. Give you unconditional support and selfless love? Yes, by all means! But don't let it turn into a kind of ego trip, which it does if they do it with a martyr-like tone. And what if their support doesn't work -- what if you persist in being flawed or limited, despite all their best efforts? This aspect is all about learning to view yourself, your partner and your love affair in the sometimes harsh light of truth, rather than through rose-colored glasses.
