New Moon Weekend
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report
If you don’t understand any of these factors or explanations, contact me.
1. With Moon in Aquarius from Friday morning until Sunday evening, there are fewer aspects in the sky than usual. However, a New Moon this afternoon at 04:41 PM ET at 04 degrees Aquarius is significant. It represents new beginnings and fresh starts and emphasizes the house in your horoscope ruled by Aquarius. It is also more relevant for those born around the twenty-fifth of January, April, July, and October and anyone with planets and points around 04 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
2. More significant is the square aspect this New Moon forms to Uranus, the planet which brings unexpected shifts and events. Therefore, as emphasized in my last two newsletters, continue to expect the unexpected. The probabilities are increased for shocks, disputes, intolerance, surprises, instability, restlessness, ego-battles, and highly charged situations, especially involving males, as well as weather extremes, natural disasters, earthquakes, accidents, attacks, violence, protests, anarchy, and escalated military tensions.
3. Moon in Aquarius gives a boost to Aquarius, and a lesser degree, the other air signs, Gemini and Libra. Moon in Aquarius also helps any planets and points you have in Aquarius and should help bring more things together for Aquarius on a short-term basis.
4. Moon in Aquarius supports anyone’s involvement with Aquarius-related activities such as meeting with friends and making new acquaintances; analyzing, observing, questioning, experimenting, and investigating; exploring what is new, novel, unusual, progressive, and nonconforming; science, technology, engineering, computers, electronics, inventions, and aviation; and working with clubs, organizations, special interest groups, and philanthropic and charitable organizations.
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 Pisces until February 07 brings blessings and benefits to Pisces, and a lesser degree to the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, as well as the house in your horoscope ruled by Pisces.
Mars, the planet of effort and desire, at 15 degrees Sagittarius is bringing extra drive and motivation for Sagittarius as well as stress, pressures, and conflicts for anyone born around the sixth of March, May, June, July, and September and anyone with planets or points at 15 degrees of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, opportunities, and good fortune, at 12 degrees Capricorn, brings opportunities for anyone born around the third of any month, especially January, April, May, July, September, and October and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 12 degrees.
Uranus at 02.75 degrees Taurus brings 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 17 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 08 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 highlighted in recent newsletters at 23.5 degrees Capricorn continues to create a powerful and reflective time frame for a Capricorn born around the fourteenth of January and significant changes and challenges for those born around the fourteenth of April, June, July, August, and October.
Lunar Factors with Moon in Aquarius
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.

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.
