Busy Solar Eclipse Week
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
The first four days of this week are busy in the sky. There are seven * factors including Venus entering Virgo on Monday, Jupiter turning Direct on Tuesday, Sun opposing Pluto on Thursday, and a New Moon Solar Eclipse on Thursday to be covered in a separate newsletter.
Monday, July 09
12:09 PM (Moon in Taurus 90 Venus in Leo) can bring cheerfulness, pleasantries, gracefulness, peaceful times, emotional sharing and artistic expression, especially involving females.
12:09 PM Moon in Taurus goes Void until 12:58 PM when it enters the next sign, Gemini.
12:58 PM Moon enters Gemini where it remains until early Wednesday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Cancer. With the Sun in the water-sign Cancer and the Moon the air-sign Gemini, we have a sign combination that is difficult to blend and integrate. Air and water do not easily go 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 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.
09:13 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.
10:31 PM * (Venus enters Virgo) Venus moves from Leo to Virgo where it remains until August 06 when it enters the next sign, Libra. This Venus shift brings blessings and benefits to Virgo and the other earth signs (Taurus and Capricorn), the mutable signs (Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces), and the house in your horoscope ruled by Virgo.
Tuesday, July 10
02:27 AM (Moon in Gemini 120 Mars in Aquarius) creates a time to trust your instincts and to be more bold and direct especially regarding communication with friends and groups because the air signs, Gemini and Aquarius, are involved.
11:04 AM (Moon in Gemini 150 Jupiter in Scorpio) enhances kindness, helpfulness, benevolence, positive feelings, emotional support, and social consciousness.
01:02 PM * (Jupiter turns Direct at 13.5 Scorpio) after being retrograde since March 08, Jupiter will now move forward through Scorpio until it enters the next sign, Sagittarius, on November 08. This movement through Scorpio will bring special opportunities at certain times for all the signs and all the planets and points in your horoscope from 13 to 30 degrees.

03:59 PM (Moon in Gemini 90 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.
09:59 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.
09:59 PM Moon in Gemini goes Void until early Wednesday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Cancer.
Wednesday, July 11
01:58 PM Moon enters Cancer where it remains until early Friday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Leo. With Sun and Moon both in Cancer, it’s a good time to focus on developing these positive qualities associated with Cancer: sensitive, helpful, caring, nurturing, compassionate, and patient.
05:48 PM (Moon in Cancer 90 Chiron in Aries) brings opportunities for the healing of relationships.
09:38 PM (Moon in Cancer 180 Saturn 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.
11:25 PM * (Venus in Virgo 120 Uranus in Taurus) in effect for days, this aspect increases the possibilities for new adventures with love and art. A person with this favorable aspect tends to be spontaneous, creative, and experimental with their love life. They are also capable of intense creativity with a wide range of artistic talents.
Thursday, July 12
02:07 AM * (Venus in Virgo 150 Chiron in Aries) in effect the past few days, this aspect favors relationships and financial matters. A person with this aspect tends to be lucky, relaxed, content, and benefits significantly from sharing with people.
02:19 AM (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.
03:51 AM * (Mercury in Leo 150 Neptune in Pisces) in effect the past few days, this aspect favors imagination and creativity. It’s the world of dreams, fantasy, fiction, art, music, movies, drama and the psychic. But with this aspect, you need to be careful with your thinking and assumptions. The imagination associated with Neptune can get out of hand. Things can be too good to be true. The mind can play tricks on you. False assumptions are made. These effects are subtle but real. Mercury rules our thoughts and thinking, and with an adverse Neptune aspect, there can be lies, confusion, deception, misrepresentation, faulty thinking, and a lack of clarity.
06:04 AM * (Sun in Cancer 180 Pluto in Capricorn) in effect this past week, this significant aspect is related to manipulation, hidden motives, fanaticism, arrogance, subversion, power struggles, and political maneuvering, especially involving men. It also increases the possibilities for extremes with politics, the weather, finances, and military conflicts, for example. There are increased complications and higher risks with all the issues in Washington and all the conflicts around the world.
11:11 AM (Moon in Cancer 120 Jupiter in Scorpio) enhances kindness, helpfulness, benevolence, positive feelings, emotional support, and social consciousness.
03:55 PM (Moon in Cancer 120 Neptune in Pisces) brings opportunities for healing, prayer, spirituality, mysticism, meditation, psychic phenomena, daydreaming, imagination, creativity, music, art and other creative endeavors.
09:43 PM (Moon in Cancer 180 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.
10:47 PM * (Solar Eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer) to be covered in a separate newsletter.
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.
