Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
This week is significant. The energies are on the intense side. Friday there’s a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and two major stress aspects are peaking, Sun square Uranus on Wednesday and Sun opposite Mars on Friday.
Persons with a discordant Sun-Mars-Uranus combination in their horoscope are typically bold, courageous, and freedom loving, but also prone to stubbornness, intolerance, tensions, brutal frankness, rash acts, accidents, and injuries.
For the world, this planetary combination increases the possibilities for outbursts, rage, strife, assaults, attacks, accidents, injuries, violence, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, extreme weather, damaging storms, electrical storms and blackouts, and battles, suicide bombings, and terrorist acts.
So, if for this past week and through this weekend, you feel more anxious, edgy, and unsettled than normal, here’s your answer. It’s now more appropriate to be patient and tolerant as opposed to being pushy and demanding. Diplomacy is required. Trying to force or dominate a situation or person will likely upset and antagonize others.
This planetary combination is somewhere in everyone’s horoscope, but is especially relevant for those born around the 23rd to 26th of January, April, July, and October and those with planets and points around two to five degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius).
On the plus side, these planetary energies favor determination, virility, and leadership. They generate extra energy and determination to help you be more productive and achieving.
As always, so much depends on your own stars and cycles. Your personal horoscope may indicate wonderful harmony and possibilities right now which supersede any discordant aspects in the sky.

Monday, July 23
11:35 AM (Moon in Sagittarius 90 Venus in Virgo) fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
02:06 PM (Moon in Sagittarius 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.
Tuesday, July 24
04:21 AM (Moon in Sagittarius 120 Mercury in Leo) this twice a month lunar aspect creates a more active exchange between one’s conscious and unconscious minds which favors reflection, communication, discussions, and writing.
04:21 AM Moon in Sagittarius goes Void until 5:48 PM today when it enters the next sign, Capricorn.
03:22 PM * (Venus in Virgo 180 Neptune in Pisces) in effect since last weekend, this once a year aspect indicates a hopeless romantic wrapped up in emotional fantasies. People with this aspect have a broad and far-reaching capacity for love and emotional rapport. They have high ideals and an excellent receptivity to beauty, art, and music, but they need to keep their feet on the ground. Venus and Neptune represent all that’s good about love and life, but the hopes, dreams, idealism, and fantasies they bring are often hard to realize.
05:48 PM Moon enters Capricorn where it remains until Friday morning when it enters the next sign, Aquarius. With Moon in hard-working Capricorn and Sun now in fun-loving Leo, it’s good to know the strengths and differences between these two signs.
Leo and Capricorn can bring mighty successes. Many successful professionals, executives and business leaders, especially in the entertainment business, have this sign combination. Both signs are strong and willful. They like power and the good things life provides. Leo brings its naturally confident, generous, and sunny nature to whatever it is involved with. Capricorn offers pragmatism, focused efforts, and executive skills.
Leo is more friendly, spontaneous, expressive, and easier to get to know. They enjoy the moment. Let’s go out and party. Capricorn is more guarded and cautious. They often sacrifice immediate pleasures for future goals. Let me stay longer at the office so I can plan for tomorrow.
Leo is the child and Capricorn the parent. Leo is a warm, sunny summer day. Capricorn is a cold, overcast Winter day. Leo is naturally confident while Capricorn has to prove itself first. Leo believes recognition and success are their birthrights. Here I am. The world owes me a lot. Capricorn assumes it must work long and hard to deserve such status.
Leo teaches Capricorn to be more relaxed, expressive, playful, and childlike. Capricorn teaches Leo to be more focused on their work and responsibilities and to realize that not everything is fun and games.
10:49 PM (Moon in Capricorn 120 Uranus in Taurus) enhances the opportunity for instincts, attentiveness, willfulness, intuition, and forward-looking aspirations especially regarding practical and business matters because the earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn, are involved.
Wednesday, July 25
01:46 AM (Moon in Capricorn 00 Saturn in Capricorn) this once a month lunar aspect provides an atmosphere for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities, primarily involving business and professional matters. This aspect also brings realities about your family and the females in your life. People with this lunar aspect are responsible, hard-working, and conscientious, but can also be somber, pessimistic, lonely, and find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions.
05:42 AM (Moon in Capricorn 150 Node in Leo) favors teamwork, networking, social interactions, and enhances any connections or alliances with groups large and small.
07:35 AM * (Sun in Leo 90 Uranus in Taurus) is a powerful aspect dominating sky since last weekend. It typically brings shocks, disputes, intolerance, surprises, instability, restlessness, ego-battles, and highly-charged situations, especially involving males.
Sun Uranus aspects also increase the possibilities for high winds, electrical storms, weather extremes, tornadoes, earthquakes as well as accidents, shootings, violence, wars, anarchy and revolutions, attacks, aggression, violence, natural disasters, earthquakes, and escalated military tensions.
On the plus side, Sun Uranus aspects generate originality, creativity, innovations, and breakthroughs. I hope you are experiencing new insights and ways of looking at your life which lead to exciting possibilities in your future.
Thursday, July 26
01:02 AM * (Mercury goes retrograde at 23 degrees Leo) covered in a separate newsletter sent on Sunday.
06:03 AM (Moon in Capricorn 120 Venus in Virgo) fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
09:41 AM (Moon in Capricorn 00 Pluto in Capricorn) this once a month aspect symbolizes females who are influential, productive, and probably psychic. In the earth-sign Capricorn, this lunar aspect increases the possibilities for practicality and solid business plans as well as deeper feelings and psychic impressions. There can also be subtle yet highly charged emotional situations involving manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles although these factors often not realized until later.
05:19 PM (Moon in Capricorn 150 Mercury in Leo) creates a more active exchange between one’s conscious and unconscious minds which favors reflection, communication, discussions, and writing.
05:39 PM * (Sun in Leo 150 Saturn in Capricorn) in effect this past week, this aspect indicates that for timing important decisions and fresh starts, it’s more appropriate to wait for a better time.
The Sun represents men and our primary direction and purpose in life. Saturn rules negation, delays, and losses. Therefore, anyone new you meet and anything you start is less likely to work out. Men are more likely to be negative, demanding, critical, and opposing. Business and political leaders are under increased pressure for their actions.
All this does not mean you shouldn’t do anything, but if you start a major project, open a new business, or make a significant decision, for example, the chances for success are diminished. Sun-Saturn does not put the odds on your side because Saturn is in a negative aspect tends to delay and block versus help and support. People with this aspect tend to have challenging lives with many obstacles and difficulties to overcome.
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 provide 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 * factors 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 fully a person’s personality and character from an astrological perspective, there are dozens of other factors in a horoscope to consider besides one's sun sign.
