Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
The stars continue to be on the plus side. There are no significant warnings or alerts which means the opportunities for right timing continue. There are though more challenging lunar aspects than usual the next few days such as this evening. Recall that the lunar (Moon) aspects listed in these newsletters are in effect for only hours (versus days) before and until the times (Eastern Time) given, but they are still relevant for right timing.
Moon in Leo
With Moon in Leo from late this afternoon until Friday evening, the fire signs (Aries Leo Sagittarius) especially Leo are more in favor as are any planets and points in your horoscope in Leo. Moon in Leo also favors anyone’s involvement with Leo-related activities such as children and love ones; romance and courtship; fun, hobbies, and recreation; art, theater, and creative endeavors; and where the natural qualities of leadership and self-assurance can be applied.
A Lovely Combination
With Moon in Leo and Sun in Libra, the dynamics are like the other friendly sign combinations: Gemini Leo, Gemini Libra, Leo Sagittarius, and Sagittarius Aquarius. The fire-sign Leo warms the friendly communication skills of the air-sign Libra, and the air related to Libra expands and spreads the warmth and love of Leo.
Both Leo and Libra are pleasant, friendly, cordial, personable, engaging, and charming. They are easy to get to know and be around. They connect with anyone readily. Leo wants to be noticed and admired, and Libra has the social charms to do so. All this makes this socially–oriented sign combination “the center of attraction,” “the belle of the ball,” and “the hostess with the mostess.”
Leo ruled by the Sun thrives on being in the spotlight with its loving, confident, creative, expressive, and dramatic ways. You can find such outlets in your horoscope wherever Leo and the Sun are positioned. Libra ruled by Venus, the planet of joy and love, wants to have fun and expand its social circle by connecting with others through cooperation and communication.
Leo and Libra also have strong creative and artistic tendencies. Both signs are related to music, acting, showmanship, drama, theater, parties, entertainment, fashion, modeling, decorating, painting, design, and the fine arts. There is also an interest in style, fashion, aesthetics, and appearances.
Sun Sign Updates
Venus, the planet of love, affection, and money, stationary at 11 degrees Scorpio is benefitting anyone born around the second of any month, especially November, and anyone with planets and points at 11 degrees.
Mars, the planet of effort and desire, at 07 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing stress and conflicts for anyone born around the twenty-eighth of January, April, June, July, August, and October and for anyone with planets or points at 07 degrees of Aquarius, Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, and Scorpio.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, and good fortune, at 23 degrees Scorpio, brings opportunities for anyone born around the fourteenth of any month, especially November, and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 23 degrees.

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 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.
