Great answer to the question on the upside of Saturn square Venus. Can I ask is there an upside to Neptune square Venus? Or is one only to obtain love when the tide rolls in only to lose it again when the tide rolls out. Never really recognizing/seeing what real love is, especially when it is a signature in your chart.

I have this aspect in my natal chart. I can tell you for sure, there’s an upside!
First, consider that Venus is exalted in Pisces. This is because of its endless capacity to love and to give. I’m not saying that everyone with Venus in Pisces does this! But they have the potential. It’s an extremely forgiving combination.
It’s the same with Venus square Neptune. I admit it’s tricky but I’ll take your specific questions and try to make sense of them.
“..is one only to obtain love when the tide rolls in only to lose it again when the tide rolls out?”
Love cannot actually roll out. It can seem to roll out but you can’t really lose the love that’s in your heart. Venus Neptune has the ability to love everyone, everywhere. In fact, it’s a challenge to focus your love.
I’d suggest your love might be missing but it’s not gone. You believe it’s gone. But the second you believe it’s back, you’ll find it is.
This reminds me of a time when someone stole every single bit of music I had (back before music was digital). I was distraught! I was devastated. But two hours later, I was in my car, singing my head off. You really can’t steal person’s music!
Love is the same. It flows out, but as long as it flows back in, maybe that’s just how life is?
“…Never really recognizing/seeing what real love is?”
I am not sure anyone can do this! “Real love” looks different from one individual to the next. But even more importantly, it looks different to a single person, at different times in their life.
What I thought real love was at 17 years old, was not what I thought it was at 40. Venus Neptune can see this, easier than most.
Imagine continuing to look for what was ideal when you were 20 when you’re now, 52! I’d consider this a hindrance! But for Venus Neptune to morph, they will have to endure periods of disillusionment that they can eventually transcend.
