Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
There are four * factors the first four days of this holiday week. Mercury Saturn on Tuesday and Mercury Mars on Thursday can create communication issues, but overall, there is harmony in the sky. There are no significant deterrents for right timing, Mercury Node on Tuesday and Sun Jupiter on Thursday are quite favorable, and just about every lunar aspect is positive.
As always, what’s occurring in your horoscope is also important. These four days may be harmonious for your horoscope or they may be quite challenging which would lessen for you the positivity in the sky.
On the Plus Side
All signs should know that Jupiter, the planet of hope, opportunity, and expansion, now retrograde at 13 degrees Scorpio will be sitting at this point for all of July because next week it turns direct at 13.5 degrees Scorpio. This stationary position is offering special opportunities for anyone born around the sixth of any month and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 13 degrees.
The earth signs (Taurus Virgo Capricorn) should know that Saturn now retrograde at 05 degrees Capricorn is offering support and steadiness for anyone born around the twenty-sixth of April, August, and December and for anyone with points or planets around 05 degrees of the earth signs.
The earth signs (Taurus Virgo Capricorn) should know that Uranus now at 02 degrees Taurus is offering possibilities for innovation, breakthroughs, and positive changes for those born early in the earth signs and for anyone with planets and points around 02 degrees of the earth signs.
The water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) should know that Neptune currently retrograde at 16.5 degrees Pisces is bringing possibilities for inspiration, creativity, healing, and spirituality for anyone born around the seventh of March, July, and November and for anyone with planets and points around 16 degrees of the water signs.
The earth signs (Taurus Virgo Capricorn) should know that Pluto, the planet of transformation and new beginnings, currently retrograde at 20 degrees Capricorn is likely producing significant changes and transformations for those born around the eleventh of January, May, and September and for anyone with planets or points around 20 degrees of the earth signs.
Monday, July 02
01:30 PM Void since early Sunday evening, Moon enters Pisces where it remains until early Thursday morning when it enters the next sign, Aries. With Sun in Cancer and Moon in Pisces, we have a compatible Sun Moon water-sign combination which makes this a good time to be more aware of and sensitive to your feelings and emotions.
People born with an emphasis in the water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) are more sensitive, compassionate, imaginative, and psychic than most people. They can readily sense the moods and feelings of those around them. They have healing abilities and a greater sense of the unity of life.
With water running deep like the oceans, so much about a water person is not easily understood by others. More is going on below the surface than above. As a result, they are easily misunderstood and can find it challenging 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 to them.
With Cancer Pisces relationships, there can be a tremendous flow of feeling, sympathy, and emotional rapport. A depth of sharing not found with others. They understand and feel the other person instinctively. A difference is that Pisces feelings and sympathies are more broad and universal than Cancer who is more concerned with family or others personally dear to them. Pisces treats friends and strangers more equally.
07:48 PM * (Mercury in Leo 150 Saturn in Capricorn) in effect for days, this aspect can bring differences of opinions as well as problems and delays with contracts and agreements. People with this aspect have good powers of observation and depth to their thoughts because Mercury is thoughts and thinking, and Saturn is deep and thorough. They prefer the concrete and practical versus the abstract, but they are prone to be inhibited, mistrustful, and depressed. In fact, their thoughts are so deep, serious, and critical that they often wish they were not so heavy and thorough. They want to feel “a bit lighter,” but their mind keeps wanting to figure everything out with preciseness and exactness.

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.
