A New Moon and an Equinox – September 16-23 2020

A New Moon in Virgo and the fall equinox are highlights of this week’s report. The New Moon in Virgo Thursday morning is partile trine aspect to Saturn in Capricorn. That should help reign in the recent waves of disparate and depressive messages from Neptune opposition aspect to Sun and Moon, as we get down to business. Mercury square aspect to Jupiter on the same day also messages enough is enough. At the Fall equinox on Tuesday, Venus is quincunx aspect to Neptune and Jupiter for a Yod configuration., and we heroically try to make sense of the confusing puzzle. The Moon in Sagittarius makes a trine aspect to Venus, as we pursue the politically biased assessments.
