A Simultaneous Plus and Minus
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
With Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Cancer from this afternoon until late Tuesday evening, it’s an excellent time to explore and be in touch with your feelings and sentiments because those born with a water sign emphasis (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) are more sensitive, compassionate, imaginative, and psychic than the other elements. They can readily sense the moods and feelings of those around them, but this deeper emotional rapport can be a gift and a curse.
They can get extremely close to those they care for, but also absorb their feelings too much and identify with their problems as if they were their own. Also, because more is going on below the surface than above as with our seas and oceans, they are easily misunderstood and can find it challenging to communicate what they feel in logical and rational terms. Words can be inadequate. The language of touch, music or visual imagery can be more natural and helpful for them.
An Interesting Phenomena
Two * aspects (Mars-Saturn and Mercury Jupiter) peak tomorrow morning almost at the same time. One is quite positive and the other quite challenging, and the effects of one does not cancel the other. The effects of both are felt as it is when you experience both positive and challenging aspects in your horoscope at the same time.
Mars 45 Saturn is a stress-producing aspect in effect this past week and is certainly relevant for the mail bomber and Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. Mars-Saturn aspects are associated with anger, bitterness, and frustration as well as guns, violence, murders, accidents, crime, terrorism, disasters, destruction, weather extremes, heightened differences, and military conflicts.
In contrast, Mercury 00 Jupiter is a terrific aspect in effect this past week. It occurs once a year and can bring a wealth of ideas, intellectual success, and the gift of speech. People with this aspect are open-minded, optimistic, and want to broaden their experiences. They have writing, teaching, and language skills and are more interested in the big picture than details.
From the aspects listed in this newsletter, there is a lovely aspect this evening, and after three challenging aspects early Monday, the rest of Monday is blessed with four positive aspects. Tuesday there are two challenging lunar aspects early morning and then two positive aspects in the evening. According to the principles of right timing, you may want to plan your activities and decisions accordingly.

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.
