Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
Always keep in mind that the aspect descriptions in these newsletters are not intended to tell you what is going to happen in your life at the times given. Instead, they give the different possibilities around the times given so you can more wisely plan for and participate in your life.
Also note that this weekend newsletter includes Monday because two longer-lasting aspects peak on Monday. If you did not know about Mercury square Pluto and Venus square Neptune until my next newsletter early next week, you would not understand their effects until then.
The astrological factors for Friday through Monday are listed below.
~ Friday, May 04
The Sun approaches the middle degrees of Taurus and the Moon entered Capricorn Thursday evening where it remains until Sunday morning when it enters the next sign, Aquarius.
With Sun in the earth-sign Taurus and Moon in the earth-sign Capricorn, it’s a good time to get things done. We have a Sun-Moon combination favoring practicality and productivity. In fact, Taurus-Capricorn is probably the most stable, dependable, and pragmatic sign combination in the zodiac.
Taurus and Capricorn are terrific for the business and professional world such as owning or operating a business. Capricorn strives for worldly accomplishments, and the steady, productive nature of Taurus supports such efforts.
Anyone with these two signs emphasized in their horoscope or any relationship with this emphasis can be counted on to build something solid, worthwhile, and sustainable over a long period with good and steady efforts. Taurus does not budge from wanting everything to be set and calm, and Capricorn works long and hard for emotional and financial security. Both signs are related to money and finances.
04:01 PM Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn in Capricorn provides an atmosphere for steadiness, conscientiousness, pragmatism, and realistic plans, especially involving business and professional matters. This aspect can also bring some realities about your family and the females in your life. People with this lunar aspect are responsible, hard-working, and conscientious, but can also be somber, pessimistic, lonely, and find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions.
05:37 PM Moon in Capricorn 150 Node in Leo favors networking and enhances any connections or alliances with groups large and small.
11:37 PM Moon in Capricorn 150 Venus in Gemini fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
~ Saturday, May 05
03:52 AM Moon in Capricorn aligns with Sun in Taurus to accentuate the positive qualities of Taurus and Capricorn explained above for Friday, May 04.
07:04 AM Mercury in Aries 150 Jupiter in Scorpio is a more important aspect in effect this past week. It is related to travel, speaking, opinions, and trial-lawyers. People with this aspect always want to broaden their experiences. They have writing, teaching, and language skills and are more interested in the big picture than details. Their optimism and enthusiastic plans need to be balanced with realism and attention to details; else there will be errors in judgment.
12:38 PM Moon in Capricorn square Mercury in Aries brings differences of opinions, but also opportunities for communication, discussions, writing, and sales.
04:59 PM Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn increases the possibilities for deeper feelings and psychic impressions, especially involving women. This aspect also favors solid and practical business plans because it’s in the sign Capricorn.
~ Sunday, May 06
02:19 AM Moon in Capricorn conjunct Mars in Capricorn can be quite productive and business-oriented with the emphasis in Capricorn. This aspect can also bring heightened emotions, impatience, impulsiveness, strong desires, and forceful actions.
09:48 AM Moon in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, emotional tensions, strained nerves, craving sensations, restlessness, excitability, and emotionally charged situations.
09:48 AM Moon in Capricorn goes Void until 10:48 AM when it enters the next sign, Aquarius, where it remains until late Tuesday evening when it enters the next sign, Pisces.
09:57 AM Sun in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces. This aspect, in effect this past week, brings the potential for spiritual and artistic inspirations. People with a favorable Sun-Neptune aspect are sensitive and receptive to all impressions. They have an active imagination and are inclined towards mysticism, dreams, and psychic experiences. They are capable of sympathy and compassion for others as well as exceptional skills in music, art, and other creative endeavors.
~ Monday, May 07
04:52 AM Mercury in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn is significant because it’s in effect for about a week before this date. People with this aspect are deep and probing thinkers. They are good at researching any idea or topic and have intense interactions with others, but they need to be careful with going to extremes and trying to force their opinions on others.
06:23 AM Moon in Aquarius opposite Node in Leo favors networking and enhances any connections or alliances with groups large and small.
05:58 PM Venus in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces is more important because it’s in effect for about a week before this date. People with this aspect have a great receptivity to beauty, art, and music, but they can also be a hopeless romantic wrapped up in emotional fantasies, always longing and wishing for love.
So, if you are on a date or you meet someone new romantically around this day, love may be “in the air” but you need to keep your feet on the ground. Venus and Neptune represent all that’s good about love and life, but the hopes, dreams, idealism, and fantasies they promise are often hard to realize.
07:24 PM Moon in Aquarius aligned with Venus in Gemini favors cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
10:08 PM Moon in Aquarius square Sun in Taurus marks the Quarter Moon as the Sun and Moon are at a 90-degree angle.
(Tuesday) 12:11 AM Moon in Aquarius square Jupiter in Scorpio increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
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. My newsletters 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 non-lunar aspects listed are more important and should be given greater consideration for right timing because they are typically in effect for about a week before the times given (Eastern Time). Any child born and any business, project, decision, and relationship, 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 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 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.
