Conjunctions

Moon and Venus Conjunction in Astrology

When emotions come in contact with pleasure, it creates a self proclaimed celebrity who craves lavishness, security, comfort, and wealth to be emotionally balanced. In a way, they are daddy's little princess or spoiled brats. This conjunction can spoil a child from the start, and later in life their relationships will be based on pleasure and sensuality. 

Moon in Astrology represents your mother, or motherly figures, your emotional response to your environment, and your imagination, since the Moon is your mind. The Moon shows the way you think and react to situations. How emotional or unemotional you are depends upon the condition of the Moon. The Moon is also a watery planet, as it controls the sign of Cancer. 
Venus in Astrology represents relationships. It shows the value we put on relationships and how we react to them. The main focus is on romantic relationships. Venus is also about comfort, as relationships and love give us that feeling.

Characteristics of Moon and Venus Conjunction:

  • This conjunction is not all about being a princess. To get the lifestyle they desire, most of the time they are willing to work hard.
  • Their entire life's goal becomes about financial security, art, pleasure, and enjoyment.
  • Even though this conjunction can produce a creative actor, model, musician, or a designer, their sole goal in life will be to attain as much wealth through their work as possible.
  • For them, art may be a part of life, but it's the security and comfort they get through art that matters the most.
  • If this combination occurs in a bad sign or house like Scorpio, Virgo, or Capricorn, it can produce prostitutes, gold diggers, and very cunning personalities who are only out there to seek pleasure.
  • Since the Moon and Venus are both karakas of the 4th House, which is about comfort, peace of mind, convenience, vehicles and childhood, this conjunction can bring about dhana yoga, or wealth yoga if this conjunction occurs in the 1st, 4th, 5th, 9th and 11th House.
  • The reason it is unfavorable to have these two in the 2nd house is because the Moon causes tides, waxes, and wanes; making a person a spend thrift.
  • They will spend more than they can afford and empty their savings on luxurious items.
