An Intense New Moon
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Tuesday, October 05, 2021
Moon in the air sign Libra from Tuesday morning until late Thursday morning boosts Libra, and to a lesser degree, the other air signs, Gemini and Aquarius. Moon in Libra also helps any planets and points you have in Libra and should bring together more things for Libra on a short-term basis.
Especially with Sun, Mercury, and Mars also in Libra, this Moon in Libra period supports anyone’s involvement with Libra-related activities such as fostering relationships and diplomacy by being more interactive and accommodating; being more aware of the needs of friends, partners, and clients; and expressing oneself artistically and creatively, including making everything around you more beautiful and harmonious.
An Intense New Moon
My last newsletter, Brace Yourself, explained why an intense, high-energy Sun-Mars-Uranus cluster active this week increases the possibilities for shocks, disputes, differences, controversies, intolerances, instability, restlessness, uncertainty, aggressions, accidents, shootings, violence, weather extremes and natural disasters.
Here are some of the headlines from the past few days.

Tomorrow’s New Moon at 07:05 AM EDT involves the Sun and Moon aligned at 13.5 degrees Libra. New Moons represent new beginnings and fresh starts, and this one places favorable emphasis on the house in your horoscope ruled by Libra and any planets and points you have around 13 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).
This New Moon extends the intensity because it aligns with two volatile planets, Mars and Uranus, creating a lot of energy that can be channeled into determination, persistence, endurance, and hard work.
For most people (depending on their horoscope and personal cycles), nothing special will happen, but those with their Sun, Moon, planets, and points around fourteen degrees of any sign, except Gemini and Virgo, should be more vigilant. If your Venus or Jupiter are at fourteen degrees of any sign, there should be opportunities.
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. A complete evaluation of what is happening in your horoscope is far more complex and involved than 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 your Sun’s position can be invaluable because the outer planets (Uranus Neptune Pluto) create life-altering trends and events. For a complete analysis, contact me.
Venus, the planet related to love, money, and the arts, in Scorpio from September 10 until October 07 brings blessings and benefits to Scorpio, and, to a lesser degree, the other water signs, Cancer and Pisces, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Scorpio.
Mars in Libra from September 15 until October 30 energizes Libra, and to a lesser degree, helps the other air signs, Gemini and Aquarius. During this period, Mars, the planet related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will also challenge Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, and Pisces. Check your planets’ positions in the above signs to know when there may be added stress, pressure, and aggravations in your life.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, optimism, opportunities, and good fortune, retrograde at 22.5 degrees Aquarius brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 22 degrees Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and especially Aquarius.
Saturn retrograde at 07 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 07 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 07 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus retrograde at 14 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, breakthroughs, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points around 14 degrees Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Uranus in Taurus also creates possible advances, breakthroughs, and new opportunities for those with planets and points at 14 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.
Neptune retrograde at 21.25 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 21 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 21 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Pluto stationary at 24.25 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 24 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 24 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Libra lunar aspects are listed below. The descriptions do not intend to tell you what will happen in your life at the times given. Instead, they 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 a party, trip, decision, project, business, or other events.
Lunar aspects are in effect for a few hours (versus days) before and until the times given for the Eastern Time Zone. Therefore, you need to adjust the times for where you live. For example, if you live on the West Coast, there is a three-hour difference, so 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 can exhibit positive and negative influences.
Tuesday, October 05
08:41 AM Moon entered Libra, where it remains until late Thursday morning when it enters the next sign, Scorpio.
08:15 PM + (Moon in Libra 120 Saturn in Aquarius) opportunities for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities.
09:23 PM + (Moon in Libra 135 Jupiter in Pisces) 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.
Wednesday, October 06
07:05 AM + (Moon in Libra 00 Sun in Libra) the time of the New Moon highlighted at the top of this newsletter.
07:56 AM - (Moon in Libra 150 Uranus in Taurus) opportunities for increased instincts, willfulness, and aspirations regarding anything new, different, exciting, and adventuresome. However, this also brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
08:03 AM + - (Moon in Libra 00 Mars in Libra) this once-a-month lunar aspect brings opportunities for trusting your instincts and being bolder and more direct with how you feel and express yourself. However, this aspect is related to an impulsive female and can magnify feelings, passions, and motivations and bring upsets, impatience, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions.
05:39 PM + (Moon in Libra 00 Mercury in Libra) this once-a-month lunar aspect brings opportunities for perception, thoughtfulness, communication, and writing.
07:54 PM - (Moon in Libra 150 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, 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.
10:08 PM + (Moon in Libra 120 Jupiter in Aquarius) 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.
Thursday, October 07
01:03 AM - (Moon in Libra 90 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.
01:03 AM Moon in Libra Void until 10:22 AM when it enters the next sign, Scorpio.
This Void is more than nine hours, so take note because there tends to be a lull in the energy levels during Void periods. 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 it can be difficult to sort everything out with so many factors presented, even for astrology students. Therefore, I try to keep everything as clear and straightforward as possible.
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, applying the information in these newsletters with common sense allows you to 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.
Moon enters each zodiac sign about every 28 days and remains in each 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 significant aspects are currently challenging your horoscope.
The traits and qualities I assign to the signs in these newsletters describe the signs’ functions and meanings versus describing your personality. However, the descriptions may be entirely accurate for you. 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.
