Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
It’s worth repeating how intense this past week was with Sun conjunct Uranus creating sudden, unexpected, disruptive, and even shocking events and decisions, especially involving men. Weather extremes, earthquakes, violence, anarchy, and military actions were also more likely. At the same time, this powerful aspect may have shifted and altered your thinking and perspectives in a good way.
It’s also worth repeating that Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn should continue to be aware of Saturn sitting stationary at 09 degrees of Capricorn. If you were born around the thirtieth of the month or if you have any planets or points are around 09 degrees of the above signs, it’s likely that you are experiencing extra demands, challenges, delays, losses, and even harsh realities.
Sun and Venus now in Taurus brings benefits to the earth signs (Taurus Virgo Capricorn) and the house in your horoscope ruled by the sign Taurus.
All signs should be aware of Jupiter, the planet of hope, opportunity, and growth, retrograde now at 20 degrees Scorpio offering opportunities for anyone born around the eleventh of any month and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 20 degrees.
The big news is Pluto going direct on Sunday at 21 degrees Capricorn. This is most significant again for Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn because anyone born around the twelfth of January, April, June, July, August, and October is more likely experiencing powerful and transformational changes. The same applies to anyone with planets or points around 21 degrees of the same signs above.
On the other hand, any Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo born around the twelfth of January, May, and September may be experiencing wonderful possibilities and opportunities with Pluto aligned with the position of their Sun. The same for anyone with planets or points around 20 degrees of the same signs above.

08:05 AM Moon in Gemini goes Void until 10:26 AM when it enters the next sign, Cancer.
With Sun in early Taurus and Moon in Cancer until Sunday afternoon, we have one of the most favorable and fertile time periods astrologically for planting and improving one’s home and gardens.
Taurus rules soil, gardening, landscaping, flowers, herbs, horticulture, shrubs, trees, forestry, agriculture, crops, and geology. Cancer rules anything to do with one’s home and real estate: from kitchens and curtains to basements and garages as well as land development and general construction.
The water of Cancer softens the fixed earthy nature of Taurus, and steadiness of Taurus adds stability to the watery moods of Cancer. Both signs are essentially gentle, with a tendency to avoid conflict and confrontation if possible. Loyalty to their home and family are strong with both signs.
08:42 PM Moon in Cancer square Mercury in Aries can bring differences of opinions but also opportunities for communication, discussions, writing, and sales.

01:49 AM Moon in Cancer opposite Saturn in Capricorn can create issues, worries, and differences, especially involving females and families.

08:28 PM Moon in Cancer opposite the midpoint of Mars and Pluto relates to the descriptions for 06:35 PM and 10:20 PM this evening. This intense three-planet combination can bring impulsiveness, resolute determination, fanaticism, moodiness, and outbursts.

How to Benefit from 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, real estate deal, or a 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 in 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 in these newsletters 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.

We will schedule a personal and private consultation so can know more about your future and better understand any issues and conflicts in your life as well as your relationships, career, education, finances, children, parents, travel, health, location, retirement, and karma.
