Big Picture Small Picture
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
With Moon in Virgo from this morning until Saturday morning, it’s a good time to focus on and practice the qualities and activities associated with Virgo: health and hygiene; helping others and being service-oriented; being efficient, productive, and dependable as a worker; troubleshooting and correcting faults and flaws; and being modest without demanding special attention.

With Sun now in the fire-sign Sagittarius and Moon in the earth-sign Virgo, it’s also good to be aware of the differences between these two signs which have very different approaches to life.
Virgo tends to focus on the trees (a narrower viewpoint) while Sagittarius is interested more in the forest (a wider viewpoint). Virgo represents our immediate physical reality: the routines, habits, and details of our everyday life. Sagittarius is related to concepts and the bigger picture. It is hopes and ideas projected into the future. It’s more about global perspective and longer-range goals.
Virgo is more critical and negative (testing everyone and everything as it looks for faults and flaws with skepticism). Sagittarius is more positive and optimistic (trusting in life and looking for the best in people and situations). Virgo is the 9-to-5 dedicated worker focused on duties and responsibilities. Sagittarius is the risk taker with high hopes and far-reaching wishes. It’s more abstract and explorative. The gambler, wheeler-dealer looking for more somewhere else.
If Virgo and Sagittarius are emphasized in your horoscope or relationships, there are checks and balances. The critical and functional nature of Virgo can temper and stabilize the exuberant, lofty, and often unrealistic plans of Sagittarius. And the need for Sagittarius to grow and explore far and wide can edge Virgo to see a bigger picture beyond the limited perspective of what needs to be done today.

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.
