Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
With the Sun a third of the way through Scorpio and Moon in Virgo from early this morning until Sunday morning, it’s a good time to focus on researching and getting things done.
Scorpio-Virgo is a deeper and more inwardly oriented sign combination which can be quite focused, thorough, discerning, and precise. Virgo is related to analytical and discriminating thinking with an inclination toward routine and detail work. Scorpio is related to depth and research with a bent toward medicine and finances.
People with Scorpio and Virgo emphasized in their horoscopes (or with a six-eight house emphasis) are not flashy or attention gathering, but they can be counted on to get the job done. They are quite capable and productive with their work and duties and are drawn to jobs and careers that require exact thinking and analysis.
For these reasons, many of my clients with a Scorpio-Virgo emphasis work in these fields: repairs and problem solving, technical and computer work, accounting and bookkeeping, taxes and insurance, statistics and mathematics, engineering and research work, medicine and surgery, environmental and health safety, and the sciences particularly chemistry, physics, biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology.
The stars are now more on the plus side. There are no major – factors and today there are four + lunar aspects. Early Saturday morning there are two - lunar aspects close together, and early Sunday morning there are two + lunar aspects close together. You may want to plan your activities and decisions according to these and other factors keeping in mind that lunar (Moon) aspects are in effect for hours (versus days) before and until the times (Eastern Time) given.
Also, with regards to right timing, any business, project, decision, relationship, wedding, and childbirth, for example, started now will have the qualities and characteristics of the Scorpio-Virgo descriptions listed above.

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.
