Art & Money
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Tuesday, April 20, 2021
In the spring of 2018, Uranus entered Taurus, which is creating radical shifts for Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius until 2025, when it enters the next sign, Gemini.
As highlighted in my last newsletter, Sun, Mercury, Venus recently joined Uranus in Taurus, bringing blessings and benefits during the next three weeks to Taurus, and to a lesser degree, the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn, as well as the house in your horoscope ruled by Taurus.
With Moon in Leo the next two days and Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus in Taurus, there is an emphasis on two signs which have a lot to do with art and money and which are quite different in their approach to life. These factors are relevant for any event, decision made, project started, and child born around this time.
Always keep in mind 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. However, at times the descriptions may be entirely accurate.
Taurus is security-oriented, while Leo is more the risk-taker. Taurus is complacency and satisfaction, while Leo wants to be and do more. Taurus is more practical, easy-going, and down-to-earth. Leo is more dramatic with their feelings and expressions. Taurus does not need to be as much the center of attention. It can be supportive rather than competitive, as opposed to Leo, who needs to be front and center.
Taurus and Leo are fixed signs, so there is a tendency toward being stubborn, willful, and inflexible. Both signs are loyal and will protect and stand by loved ones in good and bad times. They tend to be constant with their affections and faithfulness to their friends. Both signs tend to be indulgent and pleasure oriented.
Art and sensuality are related to these two signs. There are strong desires and passions. Nothing wrong with sex, fun, and pleasure, but it can be too much too quickly without a longer-term perspective. I’ve seen children with Taurus and Leo strong in their horoscopes “burn out” early by having too many “good things” too soon in their lives. What is there to look forward to?
With a Taurus-Leo relationship, money issues are likely. Taurus wants to have and hold on to, and Leo wants to spend and enjoy. Moderation is the key. You can’t have your cake and eat it.
On the plus side, the pragmatism of Taurus can temper and stabilize Leo’s tendency to spend and enjoy more and more. And Leo’s need to be creative and expressive and get out there and have fun can motivate Taurus to move beyond its set habits and lifestyle.

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 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 Taurus from April 14 until May 08 brings blessings and benefits to Taurus, and to a lesser degree, the other earth signs, Vigo and Capricorn, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Taurus. Check your planets’ exact positions in Aries to know when Venus will bring benefits to your horoscope during the next three weeks.
Mars in Gemini from March 03 until April 23 boosts Gemini, and to a lesser degree, the other air signs, Libra and Aquarius. During this period, Mars, the planet related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will be challenging Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces. Check your planets’ positions in the above signs to know when there may be added stress and aggravations in your life.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, optimism, opportunities, and good fortune, at 27 degrees Aquarius brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 27 degrees, especially Aquarius.
Saturn at 12.5 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 13 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 13 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus at 10 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, breakthroughs, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points at 10 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 10 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.
Neptune at 22 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 22 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 22 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Pluto approaching 27 degrees Capricorn is a positive influence for anyone born at 27 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 27 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Leo 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 for the times given for the Eastern Time Zone. 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, 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.
Tuesday, April 20
02:10 AM Moon entered Leo, where it remains until Thursday morning when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
Moon in the fire sign Leo boosts Leo, and to 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.
Moon in Leo supports anyone’s involvement with Leo-related attitudes and 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.
04:21 PM + (Moon in Leo 90 Venus in Taurus) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
09:11 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.
Wednesday, April 21
01:55 AM - (Moon in Leo 150 Saturn in Aquarius) 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.
07:07 PM - (Moon in Leo 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.
Thursday, April 22
03:28 AM - (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.
03:54 AM + (Moon in Leo 180 Jupiter in Aquarius) opportunities for any interpersonal situation, including meetings and working with the public because this aspect increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
08:04 AM Moon in Leo Void until 09:08 AM when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
This Void is only for an hour, but take note because there tends to be a lull in the energy levels during Void periods, 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 it can be difficult to sort everything out with so many factors presented, even for astrology students. 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, 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.
The Moon enters each sign of the zodiac 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.
