The waxing crescent Moon entered Libra in the wee hours this morning. Venus, the ruler of Libra, is currently in Cancer. This means that the Moon and Venus are in ‘mutual reception’ - the Moon is in Venus’ home, and Venus is in the Moon’s home. This condition strengthens each planet - the Moon is feeling gracious, Venus is concerned with home and family, and they are supporting each other.
Venus is also engaged in a constructive conversation with Uranus in Taurus today. Both Cancer and Taurus are signs that are concerned with security and comfort, so you may be prompted to make changes to enhance these qualities in your home and family.
At the same time, newly-retrograde Mercury is running up against Mars in Leo, setting fire to tongues everywhere. Be aware that people are likely to be easily provoked today and that an argument is just an impatient word away.
Lean on the Moon and Venus for a calming influence. Practice civility. Nurture and soothe relationships rather than cutting them apart with sharp words.
