Transiting Venus conjunct Natal Moon

This combination rules feelings of love and affection. You are loving and affectionate to people around you today, unless there is an extremely difficult transit at the same time. You are likely to be in a dreamy and romantic mood, and you will seek a quiet place to spend time with someone you love. This is not a wildly erotic Venus transit, and although good for sex, it is mainly a time for two people to quietly express their affection. You want to be with someone whom you have a lot in common with or someone who has shared your experiences. With friends, you will want to talk about old times and things that happened in the past. More than anything else, you base your relationships today upon experiences that you and others have shared.

This is a good day to spend pleasantly at home. Domestic surroundings appeal to you and it is easy for you to express your affection. You will have strong feelings of love for your family and relatives under this transit.

Relationships with women are especially fortunate today, and you may gain some benefit through such an association. This is a good day to see your mother.

The only thing to be careful of is a tendency toward overindulgence, which could affect your digestion. Enjoy sweets and alcoholic beverages in moderation.

Your emotions are softened by this transit. You will find it difficult to feel anger or resentment against anyone, particularly the people who are close to you emotionally or those whom you encounter in the course of everyday life. Toward friends you feel protective and nurturing, and you want to help them in any way you can. If you have to work with others, you are able to keep things running smoothly because of your sympathetic understanding of their feelings.

Relations with women are very good today, especially with female relatives and with your mother. Whatever tensions there might be between you are not evident just now. Female friends may provide unexpected opportunities.

If you have a choice, you should have people visit you today instead of going out, because the benevolent nature of this transit is best expressed at home. This is one of the finest transits under which to relax and take it easy, and probably you will not feel like working anyway.

If you must deal with the general public today, you will be effective. Your audience will be aware that you are communicating with your emotions as well as with your words, and they will appreciate it. The warmth that you project will impress them favorably. But even though your charm is more potent than usual, do not use it to take advantage of others. Eventually people see through that phony, plastic warmth and you will lose your effectiveness.

Transiting Venus square Natal Moon

Not a difficult square, this transit usually creates an amorous mood, making you want to relate to the opposite sex. But there are some problems with this transit. If you are jealous and possessive of your partner, it may produce feelings of love that are suffocating to him or her. Recognize that even the closest relationship needs room to breathe, and avoid being overprotective and smothering. Your partner needs a lover, not a mother! However, you will encounter this problem only if you already tend to be possessive in love.

Discordant transits accompanying this one can indicate conflicts with women, regardless of your own sex. Your mother may present a problem because of the possessive smothering emotion that is characteristic of this transit.

This type of emotion has a positive side also, for it can be transmuted into a very warm, protective kind of love that nourishes and supports a lover. In itself the emotion is neither good nor bad; it just has to find an appropriate outlet. However, the one who feels protective seems to think that this is always good, leading to misunderstandings and hurt feelings in a relationship. You should certainly be aware of any tendency at this time to confuse loving with "parenting."

Any kind of glandular disturbance will probably be adversely affected by this transit, and women may experience menstrual irregularites.

This is an excellent transit for all matters concerned with your domestic, personal and emotional life. Relationships work out far better than on other days, because you a imbued with a strong desire to be warm and friendly to everyone you meet. Others can sense the sincerity of your feelings and will respond in kind. Relations with women should be especially favorable under this influence.

Sexual relationships are strongly supported by this transit, not by directly increasing the sex drive, but by indirectly increasing the strength of love within the relationship. The emotions are quiet, not turbulent, and this is a good transit for you and a loved one to be alone together quietly.

If you must deal with groups of people, this is the day to do it. Beneficial aspects to the natal Moon, such as this one, favor confronting groups in organizations or business. This transit would help you sell a product or an idea to a group of people, not because you are unusually convincing, but simply because people like you better than usual.

This is also a favorable transit for all types of recreation or amusements at home, for example a party for a small group of friends. A small group would work better than a large group, by the way, although either would probably be successful.

This is also a good time to look about for ways to beautify and decorate your home. You are fond of beauty and pleasant surroundings, and you want your immediate physical environment to reflect your emotions.

This transit is not usually spectacular in its effects, but the days on which it occurs are pleasant.

Like most transits by opposition from Venus, this one is not troublesome; any problems are likely to come from doing something to excess. On the positive side, this transit does arouse your affections and makes you willing to give and receive love. Relationships with women will be especially meaningful. Between you and your loved ones there is a real desire to protect and nurture. Moon-Venus brings out maternal side of love, the desire to “take care of.”

On the negative side, this transit leads to rather indiscriminate affection, because your desire to love someone overrules your normal sense of discretion. This is not especially dangerous, although Victorian astrologers believed that this transit was likely to produce scandalous relationships. We are not so easily scandalized now, but a certain amount of discretion is still desirable. It would be unwise to make a permanent commitment to a love affair that begins under this influence until you have had time to think about it

This transit might produce such extreme emotionalism between you and a loved one that you would not be able to handle your problems objectively. If you have been having problems with each other before this transit, don’t try to have a calm, rational discussion just now, for it would lead only to an emotional confrontation with little communication.

If all else is well, this transit should be a time of warm and friendly feelings between you and your loved ones.
