Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
This weekend there are no major plus or minus aspects, and Sunday there's only one lunar aspect and the Moon is Void most of the day. But this weekend does bring opportunities for exploring your inner world of feelings and emotions because of a water sign emphasis.
Friday, June 22
The Moon went Void Thursday evening and stays Void until 03:10 PM today when it enters the next sign, Scorpio, where it remains until early Monday morning when it begins the next sign, Sagittarius.
With Moon in Scorpio and Sun in early Cancer, we have a harmonious Sun-Moon combination because both are in the same element: water. When there’s an emphasis in a horoscope with any one of the four elements (Fire Earth Air Water), the person typically has unique talents and skills related to that element.
Those born with a water sign emphasis (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) are more sensitive, compassionate, imaginative, and psychic than the other elements. They have healing abilities and a greater sense of the unity of life. They can readily sense the moods and feelings of those around them. For this reason, they need to be in an atmosphere that’s positive and upbeat, or else they absorb the “bad vibrations“ and end up feeling badly.
This deeper emotional rapport can be a gift and a curse. They can get extremely close to those they care for, but also absorb their feelings too much and identify with their problems as if they were their own. They need to establish boundaries between themselves and others. And because they want to merge with the ones they love, they can be demanding or smother those with less of a need or capacity for emotional closeness.
Also, a water person is not easily understood by others. More is going on below the surface than above as with our seas and oceans. They are easily misunderstood and can find it difficult to communicate what they feel in logical and rational terms. Words can be inadequate. The language of touch, music or visual imagery can be more natural and helpful for them.
06:24 PM (Moon in Scorpio 180 Uranus in Taurus) enhances instincts and willfulness, but also brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, and emotionally charged situations.
07:35 PM (Moon in Scorpio 150 Chiron in Aries) brings opportunities for the healing and relationships.
Saturday, June 23
03:16 AM (Moon in Scorpio 90 Node in Leo) favors teamwork, networking, social interactions, and enhances any connections or alliances with groups large and small.
05:26 AM * (Mercury in Cancer 180 Pluto in Capricorn) is in effect for the past few days. People with this aspect have deep and penetrating minds and are often interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the deeper aspects of the human psyche. They possess an aptitude for research and investigation. They can also have strong opinions to the point of seeming to be fanatical, dogmatic, or one-sided in their viewpoints. They can force their "truth" onto others or play intellectual power games seeking to manipulate their thinking along specific lines which can lead to conflicts and oppositions with others.
08:23 AM (Moon in Scorpio 90 Mars in Aquarius) intensifies 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.
12:33 PM (Moon in Scorpio 90 Venus in Leo) can bring cheerfulness, pleasantries, gracefulness, peaceful times, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
05:10 PM (Moon in Scorpio 00 Jupiter in Scorpio) is a wonderful aspect which enhances social consciousness, kindness, helpfulness, benevolence, positive feelings, and emotional support.
05:39 PM * (Sun in Cancer 90 Chiron in Aries) is in effect this past week. People with this aspect can be noteworthy and charismatic, almost having a mesmerizing influence on others. They typically have financial and relationship successes.
10:22 PM (Moon in Scorpio 120 Neptune in Pisces) brings opportunities for healing, prayer, spirituality, mysticism, meditation, psychic phenomena, daydreaming, imagination, creativity, music, art, and other creative endeavors.
Sunday, June 24
09:59 AM (Moon in Scorpio 120 Mercury in Cancer) creates a more active exchange between one’s conscious and unconscious minds which favors reflection, communication, discussions, and writing.
09:59 AM Moon in Scorpio goes Void until 12:29 AM Monday morning when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
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 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.
Note that 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.
