New Moon Constraints
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report
Moon in Leo
Moon in the fire sign Leo from Monday morning until Wednesday morning boosts Leo, and a lesser degree, the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. Moon in Leo also helps any planets and points you have in Leo and should bring together more things for Leo on a short-term basis.
Within the context of social distancing and the New Moon challenges described below, Moon in Leo also supports anyone’s involvement with Leo-related activities 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.
New Moon Constraints
Sun nears the end of Leo. Tuesday evening, Moon in Leo “catches up” with Sun in Leo to form a New Moon at 26.5 degrees Leo. Typically, New Moons favor new beginnings, but this New Moon, also conjunct Mercury, forms a challenging 150-degree aspect to Saturn in Capricorn.
Challenging Saturn aspects do not put the odds on our side. They tend to delay and block versus help and support. People with a Sun-Saturn aspect in their horoscope endure many obstacles and difficulties, although, in the end, their grit, durability, and work ethic can make them successful.
Therefore, this is not an ideal time to start something of significance, and anything new into your life and anyone new you meet will likely bring Saturn-like results: delays, restrictions, disappointments, and frustrations.
These days should also continue to present challenges and obstacles for many issues, such as with the virus, the fiscal stimulus bill in Washington, students, parents, teachers, and administrators returning to school, and high school, college, and professional sports.

Current Sun Sign Factors
The following sign assessments are only “the tip of the iceberg” for what you should know about what is occurring in your horoscope, especially now with the coronavirus dramatically shifting our world as we know it. A complete evaluation of what is happening in your horoscope is far more complex and involved than what any newsletter can present. For example, there are dozens of factors besides your sun sign to consider, 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, is in Cancer until September 06 when it enters the next sign, Leo. Venus in Cancer brings blessings and benefits to Cancer, and a lesser degree, the other water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Cancer. Check your planets’ exact positions in Cancer to know when Venus will be bringing benefits to your horoscope.
Mars in Aries from June 27 until January 07, 2021, boosts Aries and a lesser degree to the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius. During this period, Mars, the planet related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will also be challenging Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and Capricorn. So contact me or check the planets or points you have in these signs to know when you will likely experience stress and perhaps make mistakes during these six and a half months due to the increased demands, anxiety, and possible conflicts related to these planets and points.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, opportunities, and good fortune, retrograde at 18.5 degrees Capricorn, brings opportunities for anyone born around the ninth of any month, especially January, April, May, July, September, and October and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 18 degrees.
Saturn, retrograde at 26.5 degrees Capricorn, is likely bringing additional pressures along with tests, trials, delays, losses, and harsh realities for anyone born around the eighteenth of April, June, July, August, and October and anyone with points or planets around 27 degrees of Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
Uranus at 10.5 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, breakthroughs, and even shocks for a Taurus born around May 01 and anyone with planets and points around 10 degrees Taurus. Uranus is also likely creating significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for those born around January 31, May 01, July 31, October 01, October 31, and December 01 as well as for anyone with planets and points around 10 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
Neptune retrograde and approaching 20 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality and/or deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born around the tenth of March, June, August, September, October, and December and anyone with planets and points around 20 degrees Pisces. Neptune in Pisces is also creating opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for a Cancer born around July 10 and a Scorpio born around November 10.
Pluto retrograde at 23 degrees Capricorn is a potentially positive influence for a Capricorn born around January 14 and a potentially challenging and transformative period for an Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and Libra born around the fourteenth of the month and anyone with planets or points around 23 degrees of the above signs.
Lunar Aspects with Moon in Leo
The lunar (Moon) aspects listed below are in effect for hours (versus days) before and until the Eastern Time given. 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.
Monday, August 17
01:38 AM Moon entered Leo, where it remains until early Wednesday morning when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
10:39 AM - (Moon in Leo 135 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation, and highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. However, this aspect increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion and is not ideal for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
08:01 PM - (Moon in Leo 90 Uranus in Taurus) opportunities for increased instincts, willfulness, and aspirations regarding anything new, different, exciting, and adventuresome. However, this aspect also brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
Tuesday, August 18
09:05 AM + (Moon in Leo 150 Jupiter in Capricorn) opportunities for any interpersonal situation, including meetings and working with the public. This lunar aspect also increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
12:02 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation, and highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. However, this aspect increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion and is not ideal for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
04:41 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 Pluto in Capricorn) opportunities for digging deeper into your emotions and feelings. However, this aspect 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.
07:50 PM - (Moon in Leo 120 Mars in Aries) opportunities to trust your instincts and be bolder and more direct with how you feel and express yourself.
09:37 PM + (Moon in Leo 45 Venus in Cancer) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
10:41 PM + (Moon in Leo 00 Sun in Leo) the exact time of the New Moon in Leo highlighted at the top of this newsletter.
10:46 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 Saturn in Capricorn) opportunities for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities. However, this aspect is challenging because it is emotionally restrictive and can create issues, worries, and differences.
Wednesday, August 19
01:38 AM + (Moon in Leo 00 Mercury in Leo) this once a month lunar aspect brings opportunities for perception, thoughtfulness, communication, and writing because this aspect creates a more active mind. Being in Leo, this aspect is particularly favorable for any artistic and creative endeavor.
01:38 AM Moon in Leo Void until 04:20 AM when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
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 astrology students. I try to keep everything as clear and straightforward as possible.
Keep in mind that these newsletters do not intend to tell you what will 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 plan your life more wisely. It is often apparent which time frames are better than others for timing the start of a party, trip, decision, business, or any other event.
The times given are for the Eastern Time Zone, so you need to adjust the times for where you live. For example, if you live in on the West Coast, 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 positive and negative influences.
The most critical factor with right timing is what is 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 can better time 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. 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 is 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.
The traits and qualities I assign to the signs in these newsletters describe more the functions and meanings of the signs versus trying to describe your personality. However, the descriptions may be entirely accurate. Furthermore, to understand a person’s personality and character from an astrological perspective, dozens of factors besides one's sun sign need to be considered.
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.
