Third Quarter Moon and Crisis – February 20-28 2019

The Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune and Mercury, can we stand up to and reject Fake News? The Moon continues the transit from Virgo through Libra and Scorpio this week with an opposition to Uranus and Mars. A T-square formation brings more instability as Venus is square aspect to Uranus and the Moon. Action may be taken as a reaction as the Moon then opposes Mars. Although the Sun trine aspect to the Moon gives a more rational response. Hopefully a deepening crisis is averted. The crisis may be defused at the Venus-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, as a voice of reason is heard.  Mercury and Venus are in a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) throughout the week as we are more inclined to express and to modify our views. The Venus could be indicative of a well-placed voice in Congress on the 24th of February.  The Moon transits strong Jupiter in Sag and ingress to Capricorn to conclude the episode for political adjustment. Finding a rational narrative to be convincing attitudes may change.
