Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report
If you don’t understand any of these factors or explanations, contact me.
1. Moon in Leo from Saturday morning until Monday morning, gives a boost to Leo, and a lesser degree, to the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. Moon in Leo also helps any planets and points you have in Leo and should help bring more things together for Leo on a short-term basis.
2. Moon in Leo also supports anyone’s involvement with Leo-related activities and attitudes such as romance and courtship; connecting more with children and loved ones; fun, parties, entertainment, hobbies, and recreation; theater, art, and creative endeavors; wherever leadership and self-assurance can be applied; being on stage and projecting your confidence; and what is dramatic, glamorous, and in the public limelight.
3. The stars continue to be “heavy-duty” with three critical factors active this week. It’s not that everything would be negative and challenging, but as explained in recent newsletters, the probabilities increased for upsets, surprises, turbulent changes, and highly charged situations. It can be like lightning bolts coming out of nowhere with differences, disruptions, outbursts, rage, strife, assaults, attacks, accidents, injuries, violence, explosions, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, extreme weather, electrical storms and blackouts, and battles, suicide bombings, and terrorist acts.
4. Sunday, the last of the three important factors becomes exact when Saturn conjuncts Pluto, which only occurs once every 36 years. The significance and ramifications of this aspect is too complicated to explain in this newsletter. It took me more than twenty minutes at my workshop to explain it fully. What you do need to know on a personal level is that this is a great time to dig deep into your soul and reflect on your life, because among other things, these two planets are related to depth, investigation, and research.
5. Sunday, Mercury conjuncts this powerful Saturn-Pluto alignment, and Monday, Sun does the same, which adds even more emphasis and significance for Saturn conjunct Pluto at 22.75 degrees Capricorn.
Sun Sign Factors
The following sign assessments are only “the tip of the iceberg” for what you need to know about what is occurring in your horoscope. A complete evaluation is far more complex and involved than what any newsletter can present. For example, there are dozens of factors to consider besides your sun sign, such as the transits to all the planets and points in your horoscope. However, merely being aware of the current transits to the position of your sun and other planets explained in this newsletter can be invaluable because the outer planets (Uranus Neptune Pluto), for example, can create life-altering trends and events. For a complete analysis, contact me.
Venus, the planet related to love, money, and the arts, in Aquarius until January 13 continues to bring blessings and benefits to Aquarius, and a lesser degree to the other air signs, Gemini and Libra, as well as the house in your horoscope ruled by Aquarius.
Mars, the planet of effort and desire, at 05 and 06 degrees Sagittarius is bringing extra drive and motivation for Sagittarius as well as stress, pressures, and conflicts for anyone born around the twenty-sixth of February, April, May, June, and August and anyone with planets or points at 05 and 06 degrees of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, opportunities, and good fortune, at 09 degrees Capricorn, brings opportunities for anyone born around the thirtieth of any month, especially March, April, May, June, August, September, and December, and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 09 degrees.
Uranus stationary at 02.5 degrees Taurus continues to bring significant shifts, changes, adjustments, breakthroughs, and even shocks for a Taurus born around April 24 and anyone with planets and points around 03 degrees Taurus. Uranus is also likely creating significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for those born around the twenty-third of January, April, July, September, October, and November as well as for anyone with planets and points around 03 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
Neptune at 16.5 degrees Pisces is creating favorable opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality and/or deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions, for a Pisces born around March 07 and anyone with planets and points around 17 degrees Pisces. Neptune in Pisces is also creating opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for a Cancer born around July 08 and a Scorpio born around November 08 and anyone with points or planets around 17 degrees Cancer and Scorpio.
The powerful alignment between Saturn and Pluto at 22.75 degrees Capricorn mentioned at the top of this newsletter brings a powerful and reflective time frame for a Capricorn born around the thirteenth of January and significant changes and challenges for those born around the thirteenth of April, June, July, August, and October.
Lunar Factors with Moon in Leo
The factors covered at the top of this newsletter 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 the characteristics of the descriptions listed.
The lunar (Moon) aspects listed below 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.
Saturday, January 11
07:15 AM Moon entered Leo where it remains until Monday morning when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
09:46 AM - (Moon in Leo 135 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.
11:42 AM - (Moon in Leo 90 Uranus in Taurus) this emotionally charged aspect occurs twice a month and increases instincts and willfulness, but can also bring nervousness, anxiety, fears, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
04:53 PM + (Moon in Leo 120 Mars in Sagittarius) creates a time to trust your instincts and be bolder and more direct with how you feel and express yourself.
10:42 PM + (Moon in Leo 150 Jupiter in Capricorn) can uplift emotions and help interpersonal situations, including meetings and working with the public, because this aspect increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
Sunday, January 12
10:49 AM - (Moon in Leo 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.
09:11 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 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.
09:11 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 Saturn in Capricorn) can provide an atmosphere for conscientious, orderly, steady, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities. However, this aspect is challenging because it’s emotionally restrictive and can create issues, worries, and differences.
11:12 PM + (Moon in Leo 150 Mercury in Capricorn) brings opportunities for reflection, writing, and communication because it creates a more active exchange between the conscious and unconscious minds.
11:58 PM + (Moon in Leo 135 Jupiter in Capricorn) can uplift emotions and help interpersonal situations, including meetings and working with the public because it increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.

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.
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.
