Bright & Friendly
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
With Moon in Libra from last evening until early Sunday morning, the stars are more on the plus side than not. There are two plus * factors and no negative * factors, but be aware of five challenging lunar aspects the next few days. Moon is discordant to Saturn and Neptune on Friday, Mars and Pluto on Saturday, and Uranus early Sunday morning. Recall that the lunar (Moon) aspects listed in these newsletters are less significant than the * factors 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.
Sun Moon Harmony
Sunday Sun entered the air-sign Aquarius, and yesterday Mercury entered Aquarius which benefits Aquarius as well as the house in your horoscope ruled by Aquarius.
And with Moon now in the air-sign Libra, we now have a harmonious Sun-Moon combination. People with a Libra-Aquarius emphasis are typically bright and friendly. Their quick minds and intellectual bent help them in many ways. They require much mental and social stimulation, conversation, and interaction. They like the world of ideas, language, and culture. Their mind is their gift: thinking clearly, logically and creatively, planning and organizing efficiently, and communicating intelligently.
Libra-Aquarius also makes for agreeable friends. They value equality and fairness and try to live up to these ideals in their relationships. Both signs are uncomfortable with neediness, dependency, and emotionalism in themselves and others. They tend to keep their relationships more on a light and intellectual level. Many clients with a Libra-Aquarius emphasis are terrific working with group dynamics, training programs, and the public in general.

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.
