Instead, enjoy your family dinner. Calls for a retrial (Uranus retro) could be made as well.

However, the Moon/Uranus conjunction aspect is quincunx aspect to Venus in Libra. The Moon then transits to the approaching quincunx aspect to Mercury in Sagittarius by 13:00 EET, potentially re-creating the Yod configuration of a week ago, putting the diplomatic efforts back on track.
