The Week Ahead
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
The * factors listed in these newsletters are more important than the lunar aspects listed because they are in effect for a more extended 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.
For the first four days of this week there are ten * factors which is unusually high. For the first four days of the previous week, for example, there was only one * factor, but it was quite significant (Mars 90 Uranus).
None of the ten * factors are major except for Uranus going retrograde on Tuesday. If nothing else, so many factors may complicate matters for you the reader. It's difficult to sort it all out because there are so many and some are plus influences and some are not.

People with this lunar aspect are typically responsible, hard-working, and conscientious, but can also be somber, pessimistic, lonely, and find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions.
07:27 PM * (Sun in Leo 90 Jupiter in Scorpio) people with this aspect tend to be positive, confident, healthy, cheerful, recognized, popular, and good with people. Their lives are typically more successful than others. They live with hope and optimism, but with any discordant aspect involving Jupiter, the planet of Faith and optimism, there is a tendency to go overboard. It’s better to be moderate than to be sorry.

There will also be significant opportunities for the earth signs (Taurus Virgo Capricorn), and to a lesser degree, the water signs Cancer and Pisces.
Going retrograde at 2.5 degrees Taurus, Uranus, the planet of shocks and upsets, will likely create outbursts, rage, strife, assaults, attacks, accidents, injuries, violence, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, extreme weather, electrical storms and blackouts, and battles, suicide bombings, and terrorist acts. It is also creating significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for those born early in these signs as well as for anyone with planets and points around 2.5 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
08:32 PM * (Venus in Libra 120 Mars in Aquarius) Venus and Mars are the planets related to love and sex. People with this harmonious aspect can be warm, sensual, and easily express their feelings as well as their artistic and creative talents.

07:09 AM * (Sun in Leo 150 Neptune in Pisces) brings the potential for spiritual and artistic inspirations. People with this aspect have an active imagination and are inclined towards mysticism, spirituality, dreams, and psychic experiences. They are capable of sympathy and compassion for others as well as exceptional skills in music, art, and other creative endeavors. On the other hand, due to the discordant influence of Neptune, they can also be frail, moody, naive, overly sensitive, and susceptible to escapism and self-deception.

10:05 PM * (Sun in Leo 00 Mercury in Leo) is related to strong mental powers. People with this aspect have a wealth of ideas and often enjoy intellectual successes, but in conversation, they tend to talk too much and at you versus with you.

Thursday, August 09
01:41 AM (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.
07:20 AM (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.
07:56 AM * (Venus in Libra 150 Uranus in Taurus) increases the possibilities for new adventures with love and art. A person with this aspect tends to be independent, excitable, and unpredictable with their love life which results in love adventures and passing love bonds. They are also capable of intense creativity with a wide range of artistic talents.
05:28 PM * (Mercury in Leo 150 Neptune in Pisces) is favorable for imagination and creativity because it’s related to 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 can be made. These effects are subtle but real. Mercury is thinking, and with a discordant Neptune, there can be lies, confusion, deception, faulty reasoning, and a lack of clarity.
09:33 PM * (Venus in Libra 90 Saturn in Capricorn) can bring problems and hardships with love and money which means that anyone who started a new business, got married, or met someone new recently will likely face challenges.
Venus represents our primary need to be loved and appreciated. It is also related to values, money, joy, harmony, and females. Saturn negatively aspected brings restrictions, negation, denial, delays, pain, grief, and losses. As a result, people with a challenging Venus Saturn aspect in their horoscope do not find love and money to come as easily. They are more likely to experience financial losses and worries. They want to be loved and appreciated but are more likely at times to endure painful relationships.
How to Benefit from This Information
The purpose of these newsletters is not to tell you what is going to happen in your life at the times given. Instead, the aspect descriptions provide 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 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.
