Two More Stressors
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report
1. My last newsletter highlighted a challenging aspect involving a clash between two stress-producing planets, Mars and Saturn. I explained that with this aspect in effect through the weekend, many controversies and issues would come into focus. Tensions would run high, and people would feel frustrated. Fears, delays, disputes, bitterness, uncertainties, and heightened differences would be more likely. The probabilities increased for accidents, violence, murders, crime, terrorism, military conflicts, natural disasters, and weather extremes.
According to principles of right timing, any business, project, decision, relationship, wedding, and childbirth, for example, started this week would have the qualities and characteristics of this aspect. For now, it is more appropriate to be cautious and patient than aggressive and demanding. Stay focused and catch up with what is already in front of you.
2. Unfortunately, two more heads up aspects are now in effect. Both become exact on Monday, although their effects may extend into mid-week. Sun 90 Uranus and heliocentric Mars 150 Uranus will bring forth even more of the challenging qualities and possible events highlighted above.
3. All this does not point to the end of the world, but it is unusual to have three significant stress-producing aspects of this caliber occurring within a short period. We will see how this plays out in Washington and around the world. It’s too complicated to explain how all this may be affecting your horoscope, but you can contact me for a personal consultation.
4. Moon in Libra from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon gives a boost to Libra, any planets and points you have in Libra, and should help bring more things together for Libra on a short-term basis.
5. Moon in Libra also supports anyone’s involvement with parties, concerts, art exhibitions, and other social events; fostering relationships and diplomacy by being more interactive and accommodating; expressing oneself artistically including making everything around you more beautiful and harmonious; and becoming more aware of the needs of your friends, partners, and clients.
The factors covered above are more significant 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 below are less significant because they are in effect for only hours (versus days) before and until the Eastern Time given. However, they can be quite relevant for right timing, that is, choosing to start or initiate a meeting, decision, project, or trip, for example, at a favorable time.
Lunar Aspects with Moon in Libra
Friday, October 25
04:19 PM Moon entered Libra where it remains until Sunday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Scorpio.
08:12 PM + (Moon in Libra 180 Chiron in Aries) relates to caring females and special opportunities for healing relationships and families.
11:52 PM - (Moon in Libra 150 Uranus in Taurus) this emotionally charged aspect increases instincts and willfulness but also brings nervousness, anxiety, fears, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
Saturday, October 26
03:20 AM + (Moon in Libra 45 Venus in Scorpio) fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
09:56 AM + (Moon in Libra 90 Node in Cancer) favors networking, social interactions, and alliances with groups large and small.
10:05 AM + (Moon in Libra 45 Mercury in Scorpio) favors reflection, writing, and communication because it creates a more active exchange between the conscious and unconscious minds.
Note: the following three lunar aspects are challenging. The first two provoke stress and tension.
03:47 PM + - (Moon in Libra 00 Mars in Libra) this once a month can magnify feelings, passions, and motivations, and bring upsets, impatience, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions.
04:32 PM - (Moon in Libra 90 Saturn Capricorn) this emotionally restrictive aspect typically creates anxieties, worries, fears, and differences, especially involving females. However, it can also provide an atmosphere for orderly, practical, and realistic plans and activities.
06:17 PM - (Moon in Libra 150 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.
Sunday, October 27
01:38 AM - (Moon in Libra 90 Pluto in Capricorn) can complicate relationships with subtle yet emotionally charged situations, including manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles, although these factors may not be fully realized until later.
04:21 AM Moon in Libra Void until 04:29 PM when Moon enters the next sign, Scorpio.
This Void is more than twelve hours long, 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.
Guidelines for Using This Information
These newsletters are not your typical sun sign column. They provide much more information and guidance, but with so many factors presented, it can be difficult to sort everything out, even for students of astrology. I try to keep everything as clear and straightforward as possible.
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 times given are for the Eastern Time Zone, so you need to adjust the times for where you live. If you live in on the West Coast, for example, there is a three-hour difference, which means you need to subtract three hours.
The plus (+) lunar aspects are favorable. The minus (-) lunar aspects are more likely to bring challenges or difficulties. Sometimes there is a + and - lunar aspect, which means that 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. However, 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 with 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
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.
