An Important Week Ahead
Ed Kluska’s Right Timing Astrology Newsletter
Wednesday is significant with three important * factors. Jupiter goes retrograde, Venus aligns with Neptune, and Sun square Saturn is exact, an aspect which brings cautions for right timing. My next newsletter will cover a busy Friday, a discordant Sun-Pluto aspect on Saturday, and a harmonious Sun-Jupiter aspect on Sunday.
Major Cycles Peaking
As explained in my annual forecast workshop, three major planetary synodic cycles are beginning (and ending) over the next two years: Saturn/Pluto, Jupiter/Pluto, and Jupiter/Saturn. Each of these have major implications for the 2020 elections and for the future of our world. To know how all this will be affecting you personally, contact me.
Currently, Saturn and Pluto are near a conjunction in Capricorn. What is significant is that this week the Sun will be square to this alignment for the first time in almost 40 years. In fact, every three months for the next year and a half, when Sun is in the Cardinal signs (Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn), it will trigger this significant Saturn Pluto conjunction. Each of these sequences will be covered in future newsletters.
Sun Sign Updates
Venus, the planet of love, affection, and money, at 15 to 20 degrees Pisces benefits the house in your horoscope ruled by Pisces and anyone with planets and points at 15 to 20 degrees Pisces.
Mars, the planet of will, effort, and desire, at 05 to 08 degrees Gemini is likely bringing stress and conflicts for anyone born around the twenty-sixth to twenty-ninth of February, May, August, October, November, and December as well as for anyone with planets and points at 05 to 08 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, opportunity, and good fortune, “sitting” at 24 degrees Sagittarius, brings opportunities for anyone born around the fifteenth of any month, especially December, and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 24 degrees.
Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn should know that Saturn at 20 degrees Capricorn is likely creating challenges, tests, delays, losses, and realities for anyone born around the eleventh of January, April, June, July, August, and October and for anyone with points or planets around 20 degrees of Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should know that Uranus approaching 02 degrees Taurus is likely creating significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for those born early Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius as well as for anyone with planets and points around 02 degrees of the above signs.
Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces should know that Neptune at 17.5 degrees Pisces is likely bringing confusion, deception, and even debilitating situations for anyone born around the eighth of March, June, August, September, October, and December as well as for anyone with planets and points around 18 degrees of the above signs.
Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn should know that Pluto, the planet of transformation and new beginnings at 23 degrees Capricorn, is likely producing significant changes for those born around the fourteenth of January, April, June, July, August, and October, and for anyone with planets or points around 23 degrees of the above signs.
The * Factors
Are significant for right timing because they are in effect for a more extended time (up to a week or more). 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 aspects become exact at the Eastern Times listed, but the influences can extend beyond these times.
Wednesday 02:12 AM + * (Venus in Pisces 00 Neptune in Pisces) this wonderful Venus aspect occurs once a year and is related to the highest manifestation of personal and spiritual love. People with this aspect have a deep and far-reaching capacity for love and emotional rapport. They also have high ideals and an excellent receptivity for beauty, art, and music. If you meet someone new this week, love may be “in the air.” Remember though to keep your feet on the ground. Venus and Neptune represent all that’s good about love and life, but the hopes, dreams, idealism, and fantasies they bring are often hard to realize.
Wednesday 04:47 AM - * (Sun in Aries 90 Saturn in Capricorn) this solar aspect occurs twice a year and throws caution to any important decision or fresh start. It’s appropriate to wait for a better time because the Sun represents men and our primary direction and purpose in life, and Saturn rules negation, delays, and losses. Therefore, anyone new you meet and anything you start is less likely to work out. Men are more likely to be negative, demanding, critical, and opposing. Business and political leaders are under increased pressure for their actions.
All this does not mean you shouldn’t do anything, but if you start a large project, open a new business, or make a major decision, for example, the chances for success diminish. Sun-Saturn does not put the odds on your side because negative Saturn aspects tend to delay and block versus help and support. People with this aspect in their horoscope tend to have a life filled with challenges, obstacles, and difficulties to overcome; but in the end, they can be quite durable, persistent, hard-working, and successful.
Wednesday 01:00 PM (Jupiter in Sagittarius goes retrograde) Jupiter the planet of hope, opportunity, and expansion, has been “slowing down” the past month in Sagittarius. Today, it becomes “stationary” and then starts to move retrograde relative to the viewpoint of the earth.
Jupiter’s position at 23 degrees Sagittarius can be far more significant than Mercury retrograde, for example, because it offers many positive possibilities for weeks for anyone born around the fourteenth of December, and to a lesser degree, anyone born around the fourteenth any month and anyone with planets and points in their horoscope around 23 degrees.
The Lunar Aspects
Are less significant than the * factors listed above because they are in effect for only hours (versus days) before and until the Eastern Times given, but they are still quite relevant for right timing.
Monday, April 08
04:28 AM + (Moon in Taurus 120 Pluto in Capricorn) symbolizes females who are influential, productive, and psychic. This aspect also increases the possibilities for practicality and solid business plans as well as deeper feelings and psychic impressions.
06:48 AM + (Moon in Taurus 150 Jupiter in Sagittarius) favors meetings, interpersonal situations, and working with the public because it increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support. Especially adventuresome outdoors and promotional.
06:48 AM Moon in Taurus Void until 05:14 PM when it enters the next sign Gemini where it remains until late Wednesday evening when it enters the next sign, Cancer. This is a longer Void than usual so take note because 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. 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.
Moon in Gemini favors Gemini and any planets you have in the sign Gemini as well as anyone's involvement with Gemini-related activities such as sales and teaching; making new friends and personal contacts; reading, writing, and intellectual pursuits; and short trips for fun, pleasure, and education.
Tuesday, April 09
Note: the three challenging lunar aspects below have similar qualities and occur within a short time.
02:43 AM - (Moon in Gemini 135 Saturn in Capricorn) provides an atmosphere for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities. However, this lunar aspect can create issues, worries, and differences, especially involving females and families.
04:15 AM + - (Moon in Gemini 00 Mars in Gemini) intensifies interpersonal situations and is likely to bring impatience, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions, especially involving females. If you are trying to resolve an issue with someone, for example, be aware that upsets and volatile emotions are more likely than rational thinking.
08:04 AM - (Moon in Gemini 135 Pluto in Capricorn) can create complicated interpersonal situations, especially involving females and family matters. There’s more likely to be subtle yet emotionally charged situations involving manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles although these factors may not be fully realized until later.
Wednesday, April 10
An exceptionally busy day in the sky with three * factors described earlier, and a number of lunar aspects described below.
12:50 AM + (Moon in Gemini 90 Venus in Pisces) favors social interactions because this aspect fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
12:57 AM - (Moon in Gemini 90 Neptune in Pisces) increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion as well as highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. This period is better for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation than for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
06:00 AM - (Moon in Gemini 150 Saturn in Capricorn) can create issues, worries, and differences, especially involving females and families.
10:43 AM + (Moon in Gemini 90 Mercury in Pisces) favors reflection, writing, and communication because this lunar aspect creates a more active exchange between the conscious and unconscious minds.
11:12 AM - (Moon in Gemini 150 Pluto in Capricorn) can create complicated interpersonal situations, especially involving females and family matters. There’s more likely to be subtle yet emotionally charged situations involving manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles although these factors may not be fully realized until later.
01:26 PM + (Moon in Gemini 180 Jupiter in Sagittarius) favors interpersonal situations and working with the public because this lunar aspect increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
01:26 PM Moon in Gemini Void until 11:31 PM when it enters the next sign Cancer where it remains until early Saturday morning when it enters the next sign, Leo. As with Monday, this is another long Void so check my Void notes for Monday.
Moon in Cancer favors Cancer and your involvement with any Cancer-related activity such as helping family and friends and nurturing people along; cooking, household duties, and home decorating and repairs; antiques, memories, and genealogy; and gardening, housing, real estate, land development, farming, and agriculture.
Thursday, April 11
As opposed to yesterday, today is much lighter with only one lunar aspect.
04:49 AM + (Moon in Aries Cancer 90 Chiron in Aries) symbolizes caring females 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 (up to a week or more). 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 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.
To know what’s going on in your horoscope and to make better decisions at better times, contact me. 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.
