The Moon is in Taurus. Safety and security and the preservation of these now play the leading role. Venus belongs to Taurus. The retrograde Venus is next to Mercury in Leo and reinforces this inner need to stick to what feel safe and familiar. With this alignment, the atmosphere is conservative, friendly and accommodating. But beware when the sense of security is under attack. Mercury squares Saturn in Scorpio and that is the reason why materialism rears its ugly head. People react suspicious and angrily when they don’t get their way or when they feel unsafe.
