Mercury Direct Weekend
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
There are no significant discordant aspects peaking through this weekend, but a powerful aspect is now in effect through next Wednesday. Sun conjunct Uranus in Aries increases the possibilities for originality, creativity, and breakthroughs especially with science and technology, but this aspect will also bring sudden, unexpected, disruptive, and even shocking events and decisions, especially involving men. Weather extremes, earthquakes, violence, anarchy, and military actions are also more likely.
Mercury goes direct Sunday morning, and there’s a New Moon in Aries Sunday evening. Below are the descriptions for these and other relevant factors through this weekend.
~ Friday, April 13
07:27 AM Moon in Pisces aligns with Jupiter in Scorpio to increase the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive feelings, and uplifting emotional support with any interpersonal situation or social event.
11:06 PM Moon in Pisces conjunct Chiron in Pisces brings opportunities for healing and harmony, especially with this aspect involving the water-sign Pisces.
11:25 PM the Moon moves from Pisces to Aries where it remains until Monday morning when it enters Taurus. With Sun and Moon in Aries until Monday morning, it’s a good time to focus on and be involved with Aries-related attributes and activities such as initiative, independence, competition, leadership, crusading, innovation, pioneering, exploratory, athletics, outdoor activities, and manual labor.
~ Saturday, April 14
08:11 AM Moon in Aries conjunct Mercury in Aries offers many possibilities for writing, discussions, communication, and decisions as the conscious and unconscious minds are aligned. Being in the fire-sign Aries, this aspect brings additional opportunities for sales, marketing, and promotion.
04:01 PM Moon in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn can create issues, worries, and differences, especially involving females and families. People with this lunar aspect are typically responsible, hard-working, and conscientious, but can also be lonely, melancholic, and find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions.
09:28 PM Moon in Aries trine Node in Leo favors networking and any connections or alliances with groups large and small.
~ Sunday, April 15
03:45 AM Moon in Aries square Mars in Capricorn intensifies any interpersonal situation. Impatience, intensity, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions are more likely. If you are trying to resolve an issue with someone, for example, be aware that volatile emotions may interfere with the discussion.
05:20 AM Mercury goes direct at 05 degrees Aries, but more important than the exact time are the five days before and after Mercury goes direct. You are more likely experiencing shifts and changes with your plans, decisions, negotiations, projects, and relationships.
Also, when Mercury goes direct, problems and malfunctions often seem to resolve themselves aslmost “mysteriously.” This does not mean everything will suddenly be fine and dandy for you and the world. Nor does it mean that everything was supposed to go wrong and be confusing the last three weeks.
01:21 PM Moon in Aries 150 Jupiter in Scorpio increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
01:36 PM Moon in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn can create complicated interpersonal situations, especially involving women. Subtle yet highly charged emotional situations are more likely involving manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles.
09:57 PM New Moon at 26 degrees Aries gives a boost to those with planets and points around 26 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn) and the fire signs (Aries Leo Sagittarius) as well as the activities related to the house in your horoscope ruled by Aries.
How to Use This Information
The basic premise with right timing is that it helps to have the "stars" on your side. Starting a marriage, trip, surgery, business, or major purchase, for example, at an inopportune time reduces the chances of success no matter how good your intentions and how hard you try. The better the timing, the greater your chances of success. Even an hour can make a significant difference with important decisions and events whether you know it or not.
The most important factor with right timing is what’s 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. The descriptions given are not intended to tell you what will happen at these times. Instead, the descriptions can be helpful if you are trying to understand the planetary energies around a certain time if you are planning to do or start a meeting, party, discussion, trip, or any other activity.
The non-lunar aspects listed should be given greater consideration for right timing because they are more important. They are typically in effect for about a week before the times given (Eastern Time). Any business, project, decision, relationship, and childbirth, for example, started around the date 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 planned or expected. Sometimes it’s better to do things with no purpose in mind versus always trying to be doing something special and productive.
