Bright & Friendly
Ed Kluska's Astrology Newsletter
Always keep in mind that what’s occurring in your horoscope may be a different story from what is occuring in the sky. For example, the aspects in the sky reported in these newsletters may be positive, but you may be struggling with adverse aspects in your horoscope. Ideally, both the sky and your chart are on the plus side, especially if you are planning on doing or starting something new and significant.
With Moon in Gemini from this morning until Friday morning, Gemini is more in favor as are any planets and points in your horoscope in Gemini. Moon in Gemini also favors anyone's involvement with Gemini-related activities such as making new personal contacts; sales and education; any intellectual pursuit such as reading and writing; and short trips for fun and learning.
With the Sun nearing the end of Aquarius and the Moon in Gemini, we have a harmonious Aquarius-Gemini air-sign combination. People with this sign emphasized in their horoscope are typically bright, friendly, and conversant. Their quick minds and intellectual bent help them in many ways.
Moreover, where this favorable sign combination is positioned in their horoscope, there is a lifetime of benefits as it is for any harmonious aspect in your horoscope. For example, if you have an Aquarius-Gemini planetary combination in your second house which is related to money and talents, your sixth house which is related to work and jobs, and your tenth house which is related to business and career, you will more likely experience professional successes due to your intellectual and communication skills.

In this newsletter, also note that Mars enters Taurus on Thursday morning after being in Aries for the past six weeks, and Thursday morning there is a string of challenging lunar aspects.

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.
