    My software says the Moon to Venus rate in your case was +0.271' per
    minute time. That's 67% of the total angular velocity of both bodies
    (100% means the bodies are moving directly toward or away from each other).

    42°58.80' N 70°57.40' E
    Thus, the multiplier to convert minutes of arc to minutes of time is
    about 1/.271 = 3.7 for that observation.
