Moon Opposition Venus


This opposition indicates that you will often be dissatisfied in social relationships. You may feel emotionally blocked and uneasy when dealing with others.
You often feel unloved, and this insecurity is communicated in subtle ways to others, who may interpret it as you hiding something, when really you are just protecting yourself. This, in their mind, casts doubt on your sincerity. As distance enters your relationships, your negative feelings and fears of being disliked are reinforced, and the cycle perpetuates itself. Because vitalizing and harmonizing feelings are inwardly blocked, they fail to enter your social relationships.
People may perceive you as cold, unfriendly, or distant, and find it too much effort to spend time and energy slowly getting to know you. Your attempts to share and communicate are erratic, often superficial, and lack a recognizable warmth. Even when you are admiring someone's achievements or making gestures of appreciation, there can be an unconvincing delivery, as though you are going through socially acceptable motions but not putting any heart into it. As you know, this is not the truth of who you are, but the inability to communicate your sensitive emotional nature to others gives off a misleading impression of your character.
You may make compensatory attempts to avoid confronting your emotional unfulfillment, and these can include a preoccupation with material possessions, money, and comforts. You may attempt to form an identity and self-worth founded on physical acquisitions, or through a lifestyle which reflects Venusian tendencies toward sensuality and luxury. Despite your need for closeness, it is your unconscious behavior which pushes people away.
Inner barriers need dismantling, but moving beyond your inhibiting patterns will require taking some risks. Start by trying to be more open to connection and less protective and distant. Share yourself more easily, drop expectations about people and try to judge them less harshly.
Learn how to cooperate better by making effective adjustments and mutual concessions. The likelihood is that, over time, the quality of your relationships will improve, enabling blocked emotional energies to be released gradually and safely, as you feel able to open to a new type of contact with people and the environment. Then you may discover that you possess something of great value which can be shared with others for mutual benefit. If you can make the transition, perhaps you can in turn help others who also have to face these same difficulties.
