Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
The stars are on the plus side the next three days. The best time frame is Friday morning when there's a cluster of favorable aspects. Hopefully, your horoscope is also on the plus side this week.
Moon in Sagittarius from this morning until Friday afternoon favors Sagittarius and any planets and points in your horoscope in Sagittarius. Recall that 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 adverse aspects currently challenging your horoscope.
Moon in Sagittarius also favors anyone’s involvement with Sagittarius-related matters such as: feeling more optimistic and forward-looking; sports, athletics, working out, and outdoor activities; books, knowledge, and academics; promotion, advertising, and marketing; and foreign and international matters.
With Sun in the earth-sign Capricorn and Moon in the fire-sign Capricorn, we have two signs with distinctly different approaches to life.
Sagittarius is more open, flexible, idealistic, assuming, and exploratory. Capricorn is more set, guarded, doubtful, pragmatic, and focused. Capricorn represents downtown and city life. Sagittarius is the outdoors and country living.
Sagittarius is more liberal and extravagant. Capricorn is more conservative and frugal. Sagittarius says too much, and Capricorn says not enough. With Sagittarius, the barn door is wide open. With Capricorn, there are safety, security, and precautionary measures.
Sagittarius is more flexible and adaptable. It’s the risk taker with far-reaching visions off into the future. Capricorn is more dependable and security-oriented, more focused and accountable with what is right here-and-now. In short, Sagittarius is the half-full optimistic and Capricorn the half-empty pessimistic.
Sagittarius relies more on faith and good luck to get where they want to go while Capricorn depends on good-old fortitude and hard work. Sagittarius is big hopes and dreams. Capricorn can bring them down to reality and put them into a workable format.
In the end, this is a capable and ambitious sign combination with many professional skills and possibilities. Both signs have a logical, scientific, and technical bent. Sagittarius’s ability to market and promote can work well with Capricorn’s organizational and business skills.

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.
