Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
For the first four days of this week, there are no significant stress aspects, and a significant plus aspect is in effect. This does not guarantee, though, that everything will be harmonious for you and the world.
Friday morning Jupiter in Scorpio becomes exactly aligned with Neptune in Pisces. This wonderful outer-planet aspect occurs about once every four years. Its effects began last October when Jupiter entered Scorpio and became exact early December and again this week and for the final time in August.
As explained in detail in my workshops, this aspect explains the expansion (Jupiter) of all the news involving meditation, mindfulness, healing, and faith as well as political secrets, sexual scandals, marijuana, drugs, and oil (all Neptune-related).
People with a favorable Jupiter-Neptune aspect in their birth chart tend to be optimistic, generous, tolerant, and spiritual. They can solve problems with an intuitive approach and are more compassionate and tolerant. They seek a deeper meaning in life and maintain a world-view perspective. They can believe in their dreams and humanity in general and tend to care for the underdog and look out for the vulnerable. There is a natural love of music, art, religion, ceremony, and drama.
So, despite all the troublesome things happening in our world, this special aspect is helping people heal and grow in many ways such as with meditation, mindfulness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and other spiritual practices especially with the water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, involved.
The other relevant astrological factors for the first four days of this week are listed below.
~ Monday, May 21
06:44 AM (Moon in Leo 150 Pluto in Capricorn) can bring complicated interpersonal situations, especially involving women and families. There are more likely to be emotionally charged situations involving manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles, but these factors are often not realized until later.
06:44 AM Moon in Leo Void until this evening at 10:02 PM. This is a more extended Void period than normal. Recall that during Void periods, there tends to be a lull in the energy levels, and what you start or implement is less likely to turn out the way you planned or expected. It’s usually better to be doing things which are less important than trying to start something new and vital.
10:02 PM Moon enters Virgo where it remains until Thursday morning when it enters the next sign, Libra. With the Sun in early Gemini and the Moon in Virgo, we have a Sun-Moon sign combination emphasizing mental abilities.
Every sign is ruled by planet. Gemini and Virgo are both ruled by Mercury, the planet related to information, learning, and communication which makes these signs more rational than emotional, and more intellectually inclined than other sign combinations.
The air-sign Gemini enjoys playing with ideas without needing a purpose or results. Its mental restlessness requires stimulating ideas, intellectual challenges, and a variety of social interactions with people. The earth-sign Virgo is more the hard-working perfectionist with a talent for details and organizing affairs. It is more practical, conscientious, and focused on end results.
The main problem with a Gemini-Virgo emphasis in your horoscope or a relationship is that too many things are going on in too many directions at once. The mind is so active and the forces are so scattered that the energy can become depleted.
As soon as a task or project nears completion, more tasks and projects tend to creep up and take the attention away from completing what was already started. The solution is to be more focused and selective when choosing what to get involved with.
10:37 PM (Moon in Virgo 120 Uranus in Taurus) brings opportunities for instincts, attentiveness, willfulness, intuition, and forward-looking aspirations. There are also opportunities for business and practical matters with the earth signs, Virgo and Taurus, involved.
11:49 PM (Moon in Virgo 90 Sun in Gemini) marks the Quarter Moon which highlights the Sun-Moon combination explained above.
~ Tuesday, May 22
01:56 AM (Moon in Virgo 150 Mars in Aquarius) 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 are more likely than rational thinking.
12:19 PM (Moon in Virgo 120 Saturn in Capricorn) provides an atmosphere for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities, especially involving business and professional matters.
~ Wednesday, May 23
01:53 AM (Mercury in Taurus 180 Jupiter in Scorpio) is a more important aspect in effect the past few days and it is related to travel, speaking, opinions, and trial-lawyers. People with this aspect are open-minded and 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 they are prone to errors in judgment.
02:29 AM (Moon in Virgo 180 Neptune in Pisces) increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion as well as highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. This period is better for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation than for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
03:10 AM (Moon in Virgo 120 Mercury in Taurus) brings opportunities for communication, discussions, writing, and sales. Being in the earth-signs, Virgo and Taurus, this aspect brings additional opportunities for business and practical matters.
10:54 AM (Moon in Virgo 120 Pluto in Capricorn) increases the possibilities for deeper feelings and psychic impressions, especially involving women. This aspect also increases the possibilities for solid and practical business plans because it involves the earth-signs.
10:54 AM Moon goes Void until 02:51 AM on Thursday when it enters the next sign, Libra. Note again that this is another long Void period.
10:39 PM (Sun in Gemini 120 Mars in Aquarius) is a more important aspect in effect this past week. People with this aspect can have an abundance of physical energy and self-confidence. They can take on new projects and challenges with ease. They tend to be bolder and less dependent on others' affirmations and approval. Taking a firm stand or striking out on their own is more likely to work out for them than for most other people.
~ Thursday, May 24
02:51 AM Moon enters Libra where it remains until Saturday morning when it enters the next sign, Scorpio.
03:40 AM (Moon in Libra 150 Uranus in Taurus) increases instincts and willfulness but can also bring nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, and emotionally charged situations.
05:52 AM (Moon in Libra opposite Chiron in Aries) brings opportunities for the healing of relationships.
08:19 AM (Moon in Libra 120 Mars in Aquarius) provides an active time to trust your instincts and to be bold and direct especially regarding any intellectual or social plans because this aspect involving the air-signs, Libra and Aquarius.

They comprehend abstract reasoning and concepts quickly and like the world of ideas, language, and culture. Friendship is essential for their identity and sense of well-being. They look forwward to camaraderie, teamwork, social participation, and sharing.
The primary challenge for this sign combiantion is living too much in their heads and not enough in their hearts. They can read about, talk about, and observe life without being immersed in it emotionally. They also need to avoid becoming a dabbler and need to develop more constancy, stability, and depth.
Many clients with a Gemini-Libra emphasis are terrific with people, communication, and education. They can make friends with just about anyone and they can blend into any social situation.
02:02 PM (Moon in Libra 90 Venus in Cancer) fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
05:28 PM (Moon in Libra 90 Saturn Capricorn) issues, worries, and differences, especially involving females and families are more likely. People with this lunar aspect are typically responsible, hard-working, and conscientious, but can also be melancholic, lonely, and find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions.
How to Benefit from This Information
These newsletters are not intended to tell you what is going to happen in your life at the times given. Instead, the aspect descriptions offer some of the possibilities which may occur around the times given so you can more wisely plan for and participate in your life. Often, it is obvious which time frame is better than others for timing or starting a party, trip, decision, or any other event.
The most critical factor with right timing is what’s occurring in your horoscope. If negative aspects dominate your horoscope at a particular time, your chances of success with right timing are diminished no matter how good are the aspects in the sky. These 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 with timing your decisions and activities.
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 higher your chances of success. Even an hour can make a significant difference in important decisions and events, whether you know it or not.
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 should be given greater consideration for right timing because they are more important. They are typically in effect for about a week before the date given. Any business, project, decision, relationship, and childbirth, for example, started around the date given will have the qualities of that aspect.
With Void periods, there tends to a lull in the energy levels, and what you start or implement is less likely to turn out the way you planned or expected. So, during Void periods it’s usually better to do things with less significance or no purpose in mind versus trying to start something new and vital.
