Making Good Decisions
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
Life is a series of decisions. Some are more important than others, but they all affect your life and future.
The 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 according to principles of astrology 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.
Mercury, the planet ruling thinking, communication, negotiations, and decisions turned retrograde last Friday which means you have likely experienced shifts and changes with how you view your plans, decisions, projects, and relationships.
Furthermore, as detailed in my November 13 newsletter “Mercury Retrograde Warning", this Mercury retrograde is complicated by Mercury “sitting” square to Neptune which makes it even more difficult to make clear-cut decisions. The imagination associated with Neptune can get out of hand. Things can look too good to be true. The mind can play tricks. These effects are subtle but real. Mercury is thinking, and with a discordant Neptune, there can be lies, confusion, deception, faulty reasoning, and a lack of clarity.
My point here is that despite these Mercury factors, there will be several wonderful possibilities for right timing over the coming month which you can take advantage of, even with Mercury Retrograde. Recently, I helped clients find a favorable time to have surgery, start a new job, initiate a marketing campaign, higher a new employee, and put their home on the market.
So, contact me so we can see if your planetary cycles suggest whether this is a favorable time for you to make important decisions, and if so, we can create a plan of action which puts the odds on your side with any personal, professional, or other decisions you face.

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.
To know what’s going on in your horoscope and to make better decisions at better times, contact me. 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.
