Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
There are no major disruptive aspects for the first four days of this week. The big news is Neptune moving from stationary to retrograde Monday evening.
Neptune travels around the zodiac every 160 years which means that if you live to be 80, Neptune will have moved halfway around your horoscope, and as a result, will have aspected every planet and point in your chart by square and opposition at least once.
Squares and oppositions are challenging aspects. When Neptune makes a challenging aspect to your horoscope, there is likely to be weakness, disorientation, disillusionment, and confusion which explains why we all have ups and downs in life. We all experience these types of feelings at some time as the inevitable influences of the outer planets make their way around our horoscope.
Unfortunately, some people have challenging Neptune aspects in their birth chart which means they encounter such feelings daily. They are more likely to have many false dreams and errors in judgment. And then there are those with favorable Neptune aspects which bring them a life filled with magic, creativity, and inspiration.
What’s relevant now is that Neptune, currently stationary at 16.5 degrees Pisces, is more than halfway through its 14-year journey through Pisces. Stationary positions are important because the effects of the planets can last for months versus the usual week or so for most transiting planets.
As result, anyone born around the seventh of March, June, August, September, October, and December is being challenged by possible confusion, deception, uncertainty, and even debilitating situations. This is also relevant for anyone with planets or points around 16.5 degrees of Pisces, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Sagittarius.
On the other, Neptune’s position has been and will be creating significant opportunities for creativity, inspiration, and spiritual growth for anyone born around the seventh of March, July, and November and for anyone with planets or points around 16.5 degrees of the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

Monday, June 18
04:40 AM Moon enters Virgo where it remains until Wednesday morning when it enters the next sign, Libra. With the Sun nearing the end of the Gemini and Moon now in Virgo, it's a good time for mental analysis and for getting things done.
Every sign is ruled by a 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 result. Its mental restlessness requires stimulating ideas, intellectual challenges, and a variety of 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 Gemini and Virgo emphasized in your horoscope or a relationship is too many things going on and they are going in too many directions at once. The mind is too active, the forces are scattered, and the energy becomes 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 being more focused and more selective with what you get involved with.
07:18 AM (Moon in Virgo 120 Uranus in Taurus) brings opportunities for instincts, attentiveness, willfulness, intuition, and forward-looking aspirations.
08:32 AM (Moon in Virgo 150 Chiron in Aries) brings opportunities for the healing and relationships.
03:39 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.
07:38 PM (Moon in Virgo 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.
Tuesday, June 19
06:54 AM * (Venus in Leo 150 Saturn Capricorn) brings a sober and clear-cut sense of reality as well as a sense of duty, thrift, and economy. People with this aspect can be reserved and somewhat inhibited with emotional expression, but they are someone you can count on.
Venus represents our primary need to be loved and appreciated. It is also related to values, money, joy, harmony, and females. A negative Saturn aspect can bring restrictions, denial, delays, pain, grief, and losses. As a result, people with a challenging Venus Saturn aspect in their horoscope do not find love and money to come as easily as those with favorable aspects to their Venus. They are more likely to experience financial losses and worries. They want to be loved and appreciated, but they are more likely to have painful relationships.
08:38 AM * (Venus in Leo 00 Node in Leo) is a once a year aspect favoring friendships and interpersonal situations. A person with this aspect in their horoscope is likely to be pleasant, cheerful, affectionate, graceful, and cooperative.

This period is better for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation than for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
03:42 PM * (Mercury in Cancer 120 Jupiter in Scorpio) is a twice a year aspect which brings a wealth of ideas, intellectual successes, and the gift of speech. It is associated with travel, speaking, and opinions as well as the writer, scientist, and trial attorney. 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.
03:52 PM (Moon in Virgo 120 Pluto in Capricorn) symbolizes females who are influential and productive. This aspect also increases the possibilities for practical and solid business plans as well as deeper feelings and psychic impressions.

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, for example.
The * aspects listed are more significance for right timing because they are in effect for a more extended period of time (often up to a week). Any business, project, decision, relationship, wedding, and childbirth, for example, started around the dates given will have the qualities and characteristics of the descriptions listed.
The lunar (Moon) aspects listed are less significant because they are in effect for only hours (versus days) before and until the times (Eastern Time) given, but they are still quite relevant for right timing.
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 and character fully from an astrological perspective, there are dozens of other factors in a horoscope to consider besides one's sun sign.
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.
