Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
There is one * factor the first four days of this week, and it’s significant. In fact, it’s the last warning in a series of warnings over the past ten days.
When Mars and Uranus conflict, there is more excitement, stress, restlessness, impulsiveness, and aggravations than usual. The status quo tends to be upset with surprises, unexpected events, and turbulent changes. It can be like lightning bolts coming out of nowhere. It feels like something is ready to erupt. May was the first of three times this aspect occurs this year. Recall that there were violent volcanic explosions in Hawaii forcing many evacuations.
People with a discordant Mars-Uranus aspect in their horoscope are typically bold, courageous, and freedom loving, but also prone to stubbornness, intolerance, tensions, brutal frankness, rash acts, and accidents and injuries.
Around the world, this aspect increases the possibilities for outbursts, rage, strife, assaults, attacks, accidents, injuries, violence, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, extreme weather, electrical storms and blackouts, and battles, suicide bombings, and terrorist acts.
On the plus side, Mars square Uranus increases the possibilities for determination, virility, and leadership. These two planets represent the fighter and soldier. As a pair, they can generate extra energy and determination to help you be more productive and achieving.
As always, so much depends on your stars and cycles. Your horoscope may indicate wonderful harmony and possibilities right now which supersede any discordant aspects in the sky.
For you, it will probably be life as usual, but everyone may be a little edgier. It is a time to be safe, to be on alert, and to know what’s going on in your horoscope.
This stressful aspect is especially relevant for those born around the twenty-third of January, April, July, and October, and those with planets and points around two degrees of the Fixed Signs (Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius).

Monday, July 30
11:22 PM (Moon in Pisces 120 Jupiter in Scorpio) increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
Tuesday, July 31
03:29 AM (Moon in Pisces 00 Neptune in Pisces) this once a month lunar aspect 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.
03:31 PM (Moon in Pisces 150 Mercury in Leo) this aspect creates a more active exchange between one’s conscious and unconscious minds which favors reflection, communication, discussions, and writing.
06:41 PM (Moon in Pisces 180 Venus in Virgo) fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
06:41 PM AM Moon in Pisces becomes Void until tomorrow morning when it enters the next sign, Aries.
Wednesday, August 01
06:54 AM Moon enters Aries work where it remains until Friday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Taurus. With Moon in fast-moving Aries and Sun in fun-loving Leo, we have a combination filled with passion and a zest for life.
People with a Leo-Aries emphasis thrive in situations where there is excitement, action, movement, and drama. They can inspire others with their confidence, idealism, and generous spirit. They are leaders versus followers. They are less likely to be stuck in morass and melancholy.
Along with their exuberant vitality and enthusiasm, there is an acute ability to visualize future possibilities, almost a childlike faith in "what can be.” There is also a great sense of the grand and majestic. But in their adventurous life, they can overlook the magic in the small things of everyday life.
There is a strong urge to express themselves spontaneously and creatively without conforming to what others say, think or expect. Personal freedom and independence are paramount. They resist being directed or told what to do.
Aries and Leo are apt to feel special, charmed and somehow above or outside the realm of ordinary people and mundane activities. They can lead and inspire others, but also irritate people with their self-centeredness and insistence on expressing themselves without regard for the needs and opinions of others.
Active, vigorous, proud, dominating and self–concerned, they can force their intentions and desires upon others and circumstances rather than going with the flow and allowing life to unfold more naturally.
With their confidence, positivity, and self-motivation, it is hard for Aries and Leo to realize that other people do not have their high energy and enthusiasm for life. They cannot wait to get out of bed in the morning to enjoy another day of “highs” while others struggle to face another day of expected ”lows.”
To create a more balanced life, they need to develop the more passive qualities of peacefulness, tranquility, acceptance, receptivity, subtlety, gentleness, kindness, and compassion.
In relationships, these signs are not particularly nurturing or sentimental. They are immensely proud and neither wants to take the back seat. They can mask feelings of weakness, inadequacy, and neediness. And being high spirited and somewhat volatile, their clashes and fights are likely to be dramatic and boisterous.
But in the end, this is a wonderfully positive sign combination to have emphasized in your horoscope or relationships. There is much compatibility between these two signs if the strong egos don’t get in the way. There is much to offer to each other and life itself. Fire kindles fire. We can all benefit from more joie de vivre.
10:59 AM (Moon in Aries 00 Chiron in Aries) this once a month lunar aspect brings opportunities for the healing of relationships.
01:44 PM (Moon in Aries 90 Saturn in Capricorn) this twice a month lunar aspect provides an atmosphere for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities, primarily involving business and professional matters. It 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.
06:17 PM (Moon in Aries 120 Node in Leo) favors teamwork, networking, social interactions, and enhances any connections or alliances with groups large and small.
10:38 PM * (Mars in Aquarius 90 Uranus in Taurus) this powerful aspect is explained at the top of this newsletter.
Thursday, August 02
02:03 AM (Moon in Aries 120 Sun in Leo) the Sun and Moon become harmonious by aspect at this time. Yesterday’s first entry explains the meaning of this Sun- Moon combination.
10:04 AM (Moon in Aries 150 Jupiter in Scorpio) increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
08:16 PM (Moon in Aries 90 Pluto in Capricorn) this twice 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.
10:52 PM (Moon in Aries 120 Mercury in Leo) creates a more active exchange between one’s conscious and unconscious minds which favors reflection, communication, discussions, and writing.
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.
