Moon Square Venus
With the Moon in Taurus square Venus in Leo, it appears that there is a clash between our innate emotional needs and our wants. The Moon in Taurus seeks what is concrete, grounded, and stable while Venus in Leo wants to enjoy the best that life has to offer no matter the price. There is a clash here between security needs and wants. Try to find a way to make sure that your grounded security needs are met (Moon in Taurus) while also getting to partake in some luxuries. For example, let’s say you really want a designer handbag that is just to die for (Venus in Leo), but you know deep down that it simply isn’t practical to purchase it because of the price (Moon in Taurus). Perhaps you can reconcile your designer wants (Leo in Venus) with your need for financial security and practicality (Moon in Taurus) by making a compromise and purchasing a designer handbag at a discounted price. In this way, you can fulfill your moon’s need for practical security while meeting your luxurious wants.

Sun Sextile Moon
The sun in Cancer forms a helpful, cooperative sextile with the moon in Taurus. We feel that our general purpose and drive works well with our emotional needs. Both Cancer and Taurus energies are geared towards security. Cancer strives for emotional security by forming close bonds and establishing a home base while Taurus builds a secure foundation so that it can enjoy the finer things in life. The luminary energies work in sync today to provide us with the ability to create the physical and emotional security that we desire.
Moon Conjunction Uranus
Both the moon and Uranus are currently standing together in a conjunction in the sign of Taurus adds a bit of chaos and rebellion to our inner and emotional security needs. The influence of Uranus amps up the desire for change under this energy. There will be a compelling need to seek “emotional freedom” which could disrupt our emotional security. There is an eccentricity related to the emotional and intuitive faculties at this time., and there could be a desire to act erratically due to changes in mood. Uranus connected to the Moon in a harsh aspect could result in distance from the family and roots at this time, and this distance or separations could happen quite unexpectedly.
Moon Square Mars
The Moon in Taurus is currently receiving tense energy from the transiting Mars in Leo. There is friction between our emotional nature and our actions. Feelings will be at an all time high at this time with a deep focus on achieving our emotional needs. The major issue is that what we want emotionally is very likely to clash with our will and course of action. Think of feeling one way but wanting to act or move in a different way. This energy can also manifest as selfishness where we can resort to being impulsive, pushy, and aggressive to get our way. Also, this energy can also show up as being “emotionally defensive” where we are on high alert for anything that offends us emotionally which can result in attacks to protect ourselves. Be wary of using emotions as a means of warfare and/or using emotional immaturity to attain an advantage as if it is likely under this energy.
Sun square Chiron
With the Sun in a tense aspect to the asteroid Chiron, it is likely that there will be feelings of vulnerability. Chiron represents the wound that never heals that grants us great wisdom to help others. Our core selves will be quite fragile under these energies, and our woundedness could come to light to be addressed. It is possible that there are issues surrounding the paternal side of the family that may come up to be explored under this energy. It is important to remember that we are all dealing with our own wounds at this time, so it is important to give ourselves and others grace. When ill feelings come up at this time, take the time to care for the self and be the strong guardian that we need for ourselves at this time.
Overall, this 4th of July is expected to be quite emotional with a focus on coming to terms with what we need in order to achieve emotional security. What this energy reveals to us is that oftentimes there are great variances in what we feel we need to be emotionally secure, and we have to address the contrary energies within ourselves and be willing to sit with our vulnerabilities in order to achieve emotional security we desire.
