Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
The * factors in these newsletters are more significant because they are in effect for a more extended time (often up to a week) as opposed to lunar aspects which are in effect for a few hours before their exact time. The next three days there are four * factors.
First, Mercury turning direct on Thursday may explain why you are experiencing shifts and changes with your plans, decisions, negotiations, projects, and relationships. The choices made and the plans started with Mercury retrograde are now seen in a different light as unforeseen assumptions and mistakes "come to light” because Mercury, the planet ruling thinking and communication, is changing direction relative to the earth’s movement.
Second, Friday morning there is a New Moon at 15 degrees Sagittarius which gives a boost to Sagittarius and any planets and points you have in Sagittarius as well as the house in your horoscope ruled by Sagittarius. With Sun and Moon in Sagittarius, the sign of hope and vision, you are more in tune with the stars by being involved with Sagittarius-related attitudes and matters such as: feeling more optimistic and forward-looking; sports, athletics, and outdoor activities; books, knowledge, and academics; promotion, advertising, and marketing; and foreign and internationally-related matters.
Third, Friday Mars in Pisces aligns with Neptune in Pisces. This once every two and a half year aspect can go either way. On the plus side, it can be a motivator for artistic and creative work expressing a visionary, whimsical, or even fantastic quality. On the challenging side, a person with this aspect typically has strange desires, impulses, and feelings which are difficult to describe or understand. Their energy level is weak, they can find it difficult to motivate themselves, and their imagination can run wild.
Fourth, Friday Mars makes a minor discordant aspect to Uranus but is still noteworthy because Mars-Uranus aspects can create stressful situations and increase the possibilities for outbursts, rage, strife, assaults, attacks, accidents, injuries, violence, earthquakes, extreme weather conditions, electrical storms and blackouts, and terrorist acts.
Also, note that late Thursday evening and early Friday morning three challenging lunar aspects occur within a short time. These aspects can make matters more strange, peculiar, and challenging than normal, especially involving females.
Saturday morning matters are more favorable with three positive lunar aspects occurring before the Moon becomes Void.

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.
