To understand the concept of Moon Venus connections we first have to go back into the past for a moment.
In the early 80s a "new" approach of assessing major themes in a natal chart saw the light by the "invention" of the so-called "ZIP Code."
It was a method invented by Dr. Zipporah Dobyns (hence the name "ZIP Code") and further propagated by her daughter Maritha Pottenger, that made use of the so-called astrological alphabet.
The concept of the astrological alphabet is that astrology deals with twelve basic ways of being, twelve human drives and modes of operation that are all needed in this world.
These twelve sides of life are mirrored in the natal chart by a planet, a house and a sign.
So it is in the astrological alphabet that Mars, the 1st house and Aries all share the same principles (though they are NOT the same!).
Venus, the 2nd house and Taurus also share the same principles and this goes on for the other planets, signs and houses.
What the theory of the ZIP Code or astrological alphabet presents is that certain groups of planet/house/sign combinations share similar themes.
For example: Mars in Libra or Mars in the 7th house share the same principles. The 7th house is in mundane astrology a Libra house (wathever zodiac sign is on the cusp of the 7th house in the natal chart).
This system has been enhanced by German astrologers who developed their own system based on the same principles but they converted the signs and houses to their respective planetary rulers.
For example: Mars in Libra becomes a Mars/Venus theme because Venus always rules Libra. Mars in the 7th house too becomes a Mars/Venus theme because the 7th house is associated with Libra, which is ruled by Venus in mundane astrology.
Also, the ruler of the 1st house (in mundane astrology ruled by Mars because Mars always rules Aries and Aries is always the 1st sign in the natural order of the zodiac) in the 2nd house (in mundane astrology ruled by Venus as the ruler of Taurus) is another Venus-Mars analogy.
The more you find such analogies, themes or connections between two planets, the more this planetary combination becomes an important part of the natal chart and the life of the native.
To find out the connections or analogies between planets, we take especially into account:
Planets in houses are more important and powerful than the planets in the zodiac signs because they work on a more personal and individual level (we use the Topocentric house system which gives almost the same results as the Placidus house system).
When do we have Moon Venus connections, themes or analogies?
In most cases, the following configuartions are used (there are more though (!) to define Moon Venus connections but this would lead us too far and make it more complicated than necessary):
When at least three of the above listed analogies or connections can be found in the natal chart, we have a very powerful Moon Venus connection that will be felt and noticed in the character and life of the native.
What do Moon Venus connections signify?
The meanings of Moon Venus connections are easily mixed up with Sun Venus connections because they share similar traits.
This connection is credulous and a little naive.
It's a very soft one that lacks some stamina.
The Moon Venus connection searches for a cocoon, a protective shelter to hide from a harsh outer world.
One of the basic characteristics is laziness and the urge to take it easy and comfortable.
People with a powerful Moon Venus connection love to be pampered.
Because of the influence of the vacillating Moon, this connection is a moody one as well.
This lack of (emotional) stability is not only experienced by moody behavior but by changing tastes and indecision regarding relationships.
This connection detests conflict situations and cannot stand confrontations.
It's not a courageous one.
Honesty has to be learned and behind the mask of friendliness and 'all smiles', may hide an angry and/or discontented person.
They tend to have no problems building relationships but may not always be selective in this area.
They are not always critical enough and are swayed (and seduced) easily by others.
Moon Venus connections belong to the most sensitive ones and people with such a predominant connection can be moved and impressed easily.
They are very passive and need others to get (and keep) them going.
They dislike household activities and rather prefer more enjoyable and relaxing activities.
They love a beautiful and harmonious environment.
Moon Venus connections present the dreamers, clinging to their imagination and romantic ideals.
Even more mature people with this predominant connection have it difficult to live in a more realistic and more rational world but they have learned to develop their intuitive powers to guide them in often astonishing ways.
This connection is a very charming one.
Also, people with strong Moon Venus connections fear loneliness and emptiness and are very often highly insecure.
It's a co-dependent combination and other connections will show if and how they can overcome this and become stronger.
