Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
The stars continue to be on the harmonious side early this week. There are no significant warnings or alerts, so the opportunities for right timing continue. 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. Contact me for how you can benefit from right timing.
Moon in Cancer
With Moon in Cancer early this afternoon until late Wednesday afternoon, the water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) especially Cancer are more in favor as are any planets and points in your horoscope in Cancer. Moon in Cancer also favors your involvement with any Cancer-related activity such as helping family members and nurturing people along; cooking, household duties, and home decorating and repairs; antiques, memories, and genealogy; and gardening, housing, real estate, land development, farming, and agriculture.
With Moon in the water-sign Cancer and Sun in the air-sign Libra, there are issues to understand and work through for anyone or any relationship with a Cancer-Libra emphasis due to the fundamental differences between these two signs.
Cancer is more caring, protective and instinctual. Libra is more social, objective, and intellectually oriented. Cancer looks for relationships with an absorbing focus while Libra wants a space between them. Cancer acts more on feelings and intuition. Libra balances and weighs everything carefully and logically before coming to a decision.
In your horoscope and in relationships, the emotions and sentimentality of Cancer can confuse Libra’s logical thought processes, and the friendly social needs of Libra can upset Cancer’s need to protect itself and create secure boundaries.
These differences between emotionally based Cancer and intellectually oriented Libra have created many misunderstandings for individuals and couples trying to figure out and resolve basic conflicts between their feelings (Cancer) and thoughts (Libra). It’s not easy trying to hold water (Cancer) and air (Libra) in your hands.
On the plus side, Cancer and Libra are more people oriented and sensitive to the needs of others than most other signs. They prefer harmony and peace in their lives and are apt to avoid conflict and discord as much as possible.

Guidelines for Using This Information
I keep this information as clear and straightforward as possible, but even for students of astrology, it can be difficult to sort everything out. There are many factors to consider, and sometimes the overlapping influences are contradictory. You might say this is just like life.
For starts, keep in mind that 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 possible influences you can expect 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 star (*) factors 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 plus (+) factors for both the * factors and lunar factors are favorable. The minus (-) factors are more likely to bring challenges or difficulties. Sometimes there is a + and - factor which means the aspect can exhibit both positive and negative influences.
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 diminish no matter how favorable 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.
During 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, 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.
The Moon enters each sign of the zodiac about every 28 days and remains in that sign for about two and a half days. When the Moon’s in your sun sign, matters are likely to come more together for you on a short-term basis unless there are significant aspects currently challenging your horoscope.
Note that the traits and qualities I assign to each sign in these newsletters describe more the functions and meanings of the signs versus trying to describe your personality, although at times the descriptions may be entirely accurate. Furthermore, to understand a person’s personality and character from an astrological perspective, there are a multitude of factors in a horoscope to consider besides one's sun sign.

We will schedule a private consultation at my office or on the phone, so you can know more about your future and better understand the issues and opportunities in your life as well as your relationships, job, career, education, finances, children, parents, travel, health, location, retirement, karma, and purpose in life.
