Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
With the Sun two-thirds into Scorpio and Moon in Capricorn from late Saturday evening until late Tuesday morning, we have a Sun-Moon combination that is deep, focused, driven, ambitious, and powerful. Hopefully, this will enable you to accomplish much by digging deeper and staying focused on your tasks and goals.
There is nothing light or frivolous about Scorpio and Capricorn. Not social butterflies, and not the most open and transparent when compared to the other sign combinations, they are not easy to get to know. They need time by themselves to process all their personal thoughts and secrets. As a result, their depth is often misunderstood and misconstrued as mysterious and uncommunicative by those not as profound or inwardly oriented.
Also, Scorpio and Capricorn are demanding of themselves and others. There is a need to lighten up with too many controls and cross checks in their minds and actions. The fire signs (Aries Leo Sagittarius) and air signs (Gemini Libra Aquarius) can help them loosen up and become more open and spontaneous.
On the plus side, this is an extremely skillful and ambitious sign combination with many professional skills and possibilities. Both signs have a logical, scientific, and technical bent. They are thorough, discriminating, analytical, and precise. In work and professional settings, the ability of Scorpio to research and probe works well with Capricorns’ organizational and business skills. Scorpio is the detective and researcher. Capricorn is the boss and owner. Both signs have management and organizing skills and a bent for politics and influential positions within companies and society at large.
Mercury retrograde this Friday and Mercury square Neptune this week present cautions for major decisions and starts. Both factors suggest mental mistakes and errors. Recall that the basic premise with right timing is that you want 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.

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.
