Differences Between Venus And The Moon

Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn“Lust is what keeps you wanting to do it even when you have no desire to be with each other. Love is what makes you want to be with each other even when you have no desire to do it.”
                                                        –Judith Viorst

The meaning of Venus was recently brought up in the forum. It can be daunting to distinguish the line between the attributes of Venus versus those of the Moon. I see it as the difference between esthetics and emotion. Venus is what we like. The Moon is what we need, what we feel. Venus is attraction what we are esthetically drawn to, while the Moon is the embodiment of our emotional needs.

If the Moon and Venus placements agree, are in complimentary signs, house placements or aspect, these similar attributes overlap. There’s no need to understand the delicate difference on a personal level because what one likes also feels right. When Venus and the Moon positions challenge each other it is easier to see the distinctions. In a Moon Venus square a person can be in the position of attracting and being attracted to situations that don’t feel good. Conversely, a situation that satisfies their emotional needs may not be attractive. In this case the challenge (square) is accept the subjugation of one or the other, to consciously choose to like what satisfies or to learn to be satisfied with what one likes.

How is this accomplished? There are two ways, Saturn or Neptune, practical or magical. You can use your Saturn judgment, “this is what is best for me and I’m going to work at accepting it.” Or your Neptune illusion, dreaming one position up and the other down, “He makes me feel so loved; isn’t his leprosy dreaaaaaaamy?”

How do your Moon and Venus placements interact? Is it easy or hard?

  1. I have taurus moon and saggy venus-
    There’s a man with a scorpio mars and aries moon who had me from hello.

    Haha and now he’s trying the set me free… Set me free? Saggy venus loves the concept. Oh but we have history and you snuggle like a pro? Taurus moon is not moving.
    Do your thing sugar- I’ll be here when you get back.

  2. I was wondering about my Moon in Leo square Venus in Scorpio…I am not sure if it helps if venus makes good aspects with other planets.
    What can you tell me about this ?

    You must be kidding me!!! Harmony comes easy. With square it’s like you like someone but don’t feel emotionally vulnerable enough to open up to them… And when you feel emotional comfortable.. Bam! There is no attraction?!! For the square it becomes almost imperative to make a hard choice between one. Either get bored with someone but feel safe or get attracted to someone… But try to fulfil your needs elsewhere… Like with friends.. Etc. So attraction comes at the cost of no intimacy or sloooooooowwwww intimacy :((( I feel best way to deal with this is just to stick to those you are attracted and compromise along the way…OR OR OR… At the later stage of life where inner peace is more importantly.. Go with a friend you get along with…and hope to find flings outside primary relationship… Jstill figuring out how to find a balance…
