Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
Overall, the stars are harmonious through the weekend. There are no significant discordant aspects.
Mercury continues to be retrograde until Sunday, April 15. Recall that with Mercury retrograde, you need to be more careful. There are more “mess ups” and complications than usual because Mercury rules our thinking and communication. The decisions you make and the plans you start are more likely to take a twist later and be seen in a different light when unforeseen assumptions and mistakes "come to light” after Mercury goes direct.

09:35 AM Moon in Sagittarius harmonious with Uranus in Aries brings opportunities for instincts, intuition, and forward-looking aspirations. There are also opportunities for marketing, advertising, and promotion with Sagittarius and Aries involved.
At the time above, the Moon goes Void until 02:01 PM when it enters the next sign Capricorn where it remains until early Monday morning when it enters the next sign Aquarius.
With the Sun in the fire-sign Aries and the Moon in the earth-sign Capricorn through the weekend, we have a high-energy Sun-Moon combination with opposing needs and approaches to life.
Capricorn is stop signs. Aries is green lights. Capricorn ruled by Saturn thrives on caution, format, and responsibilities. It wants things mapped out and acts after much foresight. Aries ruled by Mars thrives on spontaneity and freedom. Action and initiatives are more important than pausing and planning.
Capricorn is the responsible parent directing their children and setting parameters as to what is right and proper. Aries is like the youngster at the grocery checkout counter impulsively grabbing candy off the shelves.
Capricorn’s need for practicality, orderliness, and control can smother the spontaneity of Aries. And the fiery nature of Aries can scorch and upset the practical and earthy nature of Capricorn.
Capricorn wants assurance and results while Aries wants excitement with few rules and boundaries. Capricorn wants to be sure and certain. Aries likes to jump in and get going.
On the plus side, the ruling planets of these two signs, Saturn and Mars, are related to work, willpower, and determination. Hence, this sign combination can achieve great things with the energy and motivation Mars provides and the focus and steady efforts Saturn provides.
Professionally, a Capricorn-Aries emphasis is favorable for any challenging field or endeavor that requires energy, initiative, and persistence. Many clients with this emphasis are executives, entrepreneurs, and business owners.

How to Use This Information
The most important factor to consider with right timing is what is occurring in your horoscope. If negative aspects now dominate your horoscope, your chances of success with right timing are diminished no matter how good the aspects are in the sky as described in these newsletters.
Obviously, I cannot cover what is occurring in your horoscope, but if you apply the information in these newsletters with common sense, you have an advantage timing your decisions and activities.
The Moon (lunar) aspects listed are in effect for hours before and until the times (Eastern Time) given. Often nothing special will happen for you at these times, but the descriptions can be helpful if you are trying to understand what is going on at a certain time and if you are planning to do or start a meeting, party, discussion, trip, or any other activity.
The non-lunar aspects listed are longer-lasting and more important. They should be given greater consideration for right timing. Any business, project, decision, relationship, and childbirth, for example, started around the time given will have the qualities of that aspect.
With Void periods, what you start or implement is less likely to turn out the way you expected. Sometimes it’s better to do things for no good reason versus always trying to be doing something special and productive.
To know what’s going on in your horoscope and to make better decisions at better times, contact me. We will schedule a personal and private consultation so can know more about your future, relationships, career, education, finances, children, parents, travel, health, location, retirement, karma, and any issues and conflicts in your life.
