My daughter has Moon in Cancer square Venus in Libra in her chart. Both planets in domicile but in a square. I’ve read the interpretation of this aspect in my many various Astro books, etc. Many of the interpretations show many difficulties.
Any advice on how to support her meeting those planets needs? I am aware Moon-Venus aspects relate to the mothers’ actions and attitudes (to self and child) often.

Hi, Mom. This is a great question.
Moon square Venus is a difficult aspect to deal with. Venus is about the sweetness in life. With the square to the moon, it’s as if the sweetness of life is not emotionally satisfying. I know this is harsh, but I am spelling this out, to make my point and also because adults who have this in their chart, are not going to want to read a fluffy lie.
Your daughter’s situation is helped by having the bodies in the signs they rule, as you mentioned. The fact her mother is here, asking about this and wanting to help, illustrates this advantage.
I do think you can help but it will be challenging. Keep in mind, this aspect will play out on a daily basis over the course of her lifetime. I can’t cover all the potentials so let me give you one example of what happens with this aspect, as well as an idea how you might mitigate the situation. It will be like a template – you can take it from there.
This aspect might create a situation where your daughter falls in love (Venus in Libra), but her mom does not like the partner.
Or maybe your daughter develops her aesthetic and again, you don’t like it. Like my son and his tattoos! There’s the clash. But if you let her have her love and her own tastes, you would cut her her a break on this aspect. It would be a loving (Venus), mom (Moon) thing to do.
I guess you might say someone is going to get crushed in this situation. It’s possible for you to absorb the blow to spare her.
