Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
For the first four days of this week, there are no negative * factors, and there is one positive * factor (Venus opposite Node) which peaks on Tuesday. This aspect fosters pleasant, agreeable, cordial, and engaging behavior towards others, and benefits anyone born around the seventeenth of January, April, July, and October, and anyone with planets and points around 26 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn).
My last newsletter explained why a Scorpio-Pisces emphasis indicates a person not easily understood because there’s so much going on below the surface. The waters run deep like the oceans and the seas which Scorpio and Pisces represent astrologically. They are more mysterious than other sign combinations and have psychic and natural healing abilities along with an innate understanding of the unity and interconnectedness of life.
With this combination active this past weekend, a female client came to me for an astrological consultation. Her Pisces sun is exactly aligned with Neptune (the psychic planet) in Scorpio. People with Sun-Neptune aspects are highly sensitive and receptive to all impressions. They have an active imagination and are inclined towards mysticism, spirituality, dreams, and psychic experiences.
Independent of knowing much about her horoscope, she told me how the factors above have been a big part of her life.
After our astrology session, we did one of my Psychic Heart Meditation Sessions which enables people to experience a deep sense of peace and stillness from which they can more readily access their psychic and spiritual abilities from deep within.
I can’t say what she said, but I can tell you she had a profound experience which gave her many insights and answers. Most people have favorable experiences and results with these sessions, but her session was particularly significant because of her innate psychic abilities as shown in her horoscope.

03:39 PM - (Moon in Scorpio 150 Uranus in Aries) this stress-producing aspect increases willfulness and instincts but also brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations, especially involving females.

04:19 PM With Sun in Pisces and Moon in Sagittarius from now until early Thursday morning, we have a Sun-Moon combination involving two signs related to seeking life’s answers and meaning. Sagittarius and Pisces are both ruled Jupiter which means they are essentially idealistic, generous, open-minded, and spiritually oriented. There are though differences you should know about if these two signs are emphasized in your horoscope, your ninth and twelfth houses are active, or you are in a Sagittarius-Pisces relationship.
Sagittarius is more open, confident and optimistic. It likes to think big-picture and to take chances. It broadens its life with learning experiences, getting out in nature, and exploring other cultures. Pisces is more introvert, receptive, and passive. It seeks the inner world of reflection and meditation with a proclivity towards music, theater, dance, and the arts.
05:04 PM - (Moon in Sagittarius 120 Chiron in Aries) brings to the forefront caring women and special opportunities for healing relationships and families.

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 child born, 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 a 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.
