Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
There are two sign changes early this week: Tuesday afternoon Mercury enters Cancer and Wednesday afternoon Venus enters Leo.
A New Moon in Gemini occurs Wednesday afternoon, and Thursday afternoon there are two stressful lunar aspects involving Mars and Saturn.
One of my favorite combinations, Moon and Jupiter, occurs three times: Monday at 01:14 AM, Wednesday 02:24 AM, and Friday 02:09 AM.
There are two * aspects (Monday's Sun-Pluto related to Trump's meeting with Kim in Singapore and Thursday's Venus-Uranus). These aspects and other relevant astrological factors are explained below.
~ Monday, June 11
01:14 AM (Moon in Taurus 180 Jupiter in Scorpio) increases the possibilities for social consciousness, kindness, helpfulness, benevolence, positive feelings, and emotional support.
11:30 AM (Moon in Taurus 120 Pluto in Capricorn) increases the potential for practical and reliable business plans as well as deeper feelings and psychic impressions.
01:13 PM * (Sun in Gemini 150 Pluto in Capricorn) this aspect, in effect this past week, is related to manipulation, hidden motives, fanaticism, arrogance, subversion, power struggles, and political maneuvering, especially involving men. It also increases the possibilities for disasters and extremes with the weather, politics, finances, and military conflicts.
11:28 PM Moon in Taurus becomes Void until early Tuesday morning when it enters the next sign, Gemini.
~ Tuesday, June 12
02:52 AM Moon enters Gemini where it remains until early Thursday morning when it enters the next sign, Cancer. Every month the Moon enters the same sign as the Sun and then comes to the same degree as the Sun to form a New Moon. In this case, it’s tomorrow afternoon. So, if a business is launched or a child is born today or tomorrow, they would be a double Gemini, and if their Rising or Ascendant Sign is also Gemini, they would be a triple Gemini.
Each sign has its plus and minus qualities. With anyone having a Gemini emphasis, you can see their active minds moving along with their hands and arms as they talk on and on. They are undoubtedly friendly, inquisitive, and easy to get to know, but are challenged by staying on course and becoming better listeners. Gemini can be involved with too many little pieces of the puzzle. It needs to keep more of the bigger picture (related to its opposite sign, Sagittarius) in mind.
Vocationally, Gemini is about changes and variety in scope and duties, more than one vocation or several changes during their lifetime, where intellect, memory, and communications are active, the opportunity to travel, make fresh personal contacts, and do, see, and learn new things, and being clever and skillful at light manual labor while being averse to hard labor.
02:12 PM (Moon in Gemini 150 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 melancholic, lonely, and find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions.
03:59 PM Mercury, the planet of thinking, writing, selling, and communication, moves from Gemini to Cancer which will help Cancer and bring minor benefits to the other water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, before entering the next sign, Leo, on June 29.
04:00 PM (Moon in Gemini 120 Mars in Aquarius) can prompt you to be more bold, direct, and trusting of your instincts especially regarding intellectual and communication matters because the air signs, Gemini and Aquarius, are involved.
~ Wednesday, June 13
02:24 AM (Moon in Gemini 150 Jupiter in Scorpio) increases the possibilities for social consciousness, kindness, helpfulness, benevolence, positive feelings, and emotional support.
05:40 AM (Moon in Gemini 90 Neptune in Pisces) can create 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.
12:25 PM (Moon in Gemini 150 Pluto in Capricorn) can create complicated interpersonal situations, especially involving women and families. Subtle yet highly charged emotional situations involving manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles are more likely although these factors often not realized till later.
03:43 PM A New Moon in Gemini at 23 Gemini emphasizes the points made about Gemini in yesterday’s text. It also activates any point in your horoscope at 23 degrees as well as the house in your horoscope ruled by Gemini. With Gemini now active, it’s good to be aware of these Gemini traits: friendly, mental, talkative, lighthearted, curious, flexible, and prone to gossip, superficiality, and lacking focus and persistence.
03:43 PM Moon in Gemini goes Void until Thursday morning when it enters the next sign, Cancer.
05:27 PM (Mercury in Cancer 90 Chiron in Aries) enhances communication and social interactions.
05:53 PM Venus moves from Cancer to Leo. This shift brings blessings and benefits to Leo and the other fire signs (Aries and Sagittarius) as well as to the fixed signs (Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius) and to the house in your horoscope ruled by Leo until July 09 when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
~ Thursday, June 14
03:19 AM Moon enters Cancer where it remains until early Saturday morning when it enters the next sign, Leo. With Sun nearing the end of the air sign Gemini and the Moon now in the water-sign Cancer, we have a Sun-Moon sign combination that is challenging because air and water do not easily blend together. There can be rough waters and stormy seas for individuals and relationships involving the air water combinations. They are Gemini and Cancer, Gemini and Scorpio, Gemini and Pisces, Libra and Cancer, Libra and Scorpio, Libra and Pisces, Aquarius and Cancer, Aquarius and Scorpio, and Aquarius and Pisces.
Gemini represents the youthfulness of a teenager while Cancer is related to a nurturing parent. Gemini is the extrovert seeking mental stimulation with a variety of friends and acquaintances. Cancer is more inwardly oriented. It seeks security and emotional attachments with a premium on its home and family.
Gemini wants social interactions wherever they can find them. Cancer can stay home and find fulfillment. Gemini is more comfortable jumping around to this and that while Cancer prefers that which is more familiar and secure.
In a horoscope and between two people in a relationship, the superficial detachments of breezy Gemini do not support the deeper feelings and emotional bonding Cancer craves. And the emotional swings and sentimentality of Cancer can mystify and confuse the mental efforts of Gemini.
On the plus side, there are opportunities for those who can blend the mental and communication skills of Gemini with the emotional sensitivities of Cancer. Two examples are writers and therapists.
06:53 AM (Moon in Cancer 90 Chiron in Aries) brings opportunities for the healing of relationships.
09:01 AM (Moon in Cancer 00 Mercury in Cancer) creates a more active exchange between one’s conscious and unconscious minds bringing special opportunities for sales, communication, discussions, teaching, and writing.
02:09 PM (Moon in Cancer 180 Saturn in Capricorn) can create stress, 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 melancholic, lonely, and find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions.
04:38 PM (Moon in Cancer 150 Mars in Aquarius) can intensify any interpersonal situation. There is more likely to be impatience, intensity, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions. If you are trying to resolve an issue with someone, for example, be aware that volatile emotions are more likely than rational thinking.
11:32 PM * (Venus in Leo 90 Uranus in Taurus) this more important aspect is in effect for days before and increases the possibilities for new adventures with love and art. A person with this aspect in their horoscope tends to be independent, excitable, and unpredictable with their love life which results in love adventures and passing love bonds. They are also capable of strong creativity with a wide range of artistic talents.
Friday morning 02:09 AM (Moon in Cancer 120 Jupiter in Scorpio) increases the possibilities for social consciousness, kindness, helpfulness, benevolence, positive feelings, and emotional support.
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 give some of the possibilities for around the times given so you can more wisely plan for and participate in your life. Often, it is obvious which time frames are better than others for timing or starting a party, trip, decision, business, or any other event.
The traits given for each sign in these newsletters are not intended to describe your personality, although at times the descriptions may be entirely accurate. Furthermore, to understand a person’s personality fully from an astrological perspective, there are dozens of other factors in a horoscope to consider besides one's sun sign.
The more important aspects listed in these newsletters are the non-lunar aspects indicated by a * next to the dates. They should be given greater consideration for right timing because 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 dates given will have the qualities of the aspects in effect on those dates.
The Moon (lunar) aspects listed are less significant because they are in effect only for hours before and until the times (Eastern Time) given, but they are still important to consider for understanding what is occurring at the time and for right timing.
The most critical factor with right timing is what’s occurring in your horoscope. When negative aspects dominate your horoscope, the chances of success with right timing are diminished no matter how good the aspects are 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.
With 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. 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. If you have a new idea, meet someone new, or start a business, for example, those activities are less likely to amount to much
