Becoming More Frugal
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Sunday, June 19, 2022
Moon in the water sign Pisces from early Saturday evening EDT until late Monday evening boosts Pisces and, to a lesser degree, the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio. Moon in Pisces also helps any planets and points you have in Pisces and should bring together more things for Pisces on a short-term basis.
Moon in Pisces also supports anyone’s involvement with Pisces-related activities such as music, dancing, painting, movies, theater, film, drama, poetry, fiction, and photography; working with dreams, imagination, and the subconscious; anything spiritually oriented such as prayer, yoga, and meditation; and unselfishly helping those in need including the sick and less fortunate.
With Sun late in the air sign Gemini and Moon in the water sign Pisces, there is a contrast in the sky.
Gemini is more outward and intellectual, while Pisces is more inward and intuitive. Gemini is related to what is conscious, rational, and linear. It wants to compare and contrast. On the other, Pisces is more unconscious and blending. It seeks inner meaning and universal truths.
Gemini is the world of everyday communication and social interactions. It actively seeks connections with others with their words and ideas. There is a proclivity toward reading, writing, and other intellectual pursuits.
Pisces is related to the unconscious mind and the world of symbols and mysticism. It is more passive and subtle. It seeks the inner world of reflection and contemplation. There is a predisposition toward meditation, music, theater, dance, and the arts.
These differences present challenges for any Pisces–Gemini relationship or if both signs in a horoscope are active. However, despite these challenges, Gemini can benefit from the ability of Pisces to go wide and deep with their perspective, and Pisces can benefit from the ability of Gemini to articulate about the here and now.
Furthermore, this is a creative and playful combination. Gemini’s active mind and the busy hands can blend with Pisces’s imagination and creative talents to produce outstanding writing, designs, music, and other forms of artistic expression.
Becoming More Frugal
My last newsletter, Money & Love Tested, featured a challenging aspect, Venus square Saturn, in effect this past week creating worries about inflation, the economy, the stock market, and a recession. Venus rules love and money, and Saturn rules losses and negation.
And then yesterday, I saw this relevant article in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal by Clare Ansberry.
“Extremely frugal families are coping with record-high inflation by doing what they’ve always done: not spending money.
With high inflation costing many Americans more, a small but enthusiastic group of already super-frugal people are taking their saving strategies further. Some of their tactics: checking wholesalers for sharply reduced “distressed” foods with damaged packaging; designating no-spend months when they abstain from buying nonessentials; and auditing one or two categories of spending to see where they can shave costs.
Extreme money-saving measures are gaining interest as more than 80% of American consumers say they plan to cut back spending by buying cheaper or fewer products, according to a May survey of 1,014 people by market research firm NPD Group.
Frugality is in fashion right now. But be frugal in good times and bad times. That’s how you get ahead. Inflation doesn’t matter as much if you don’t spend money.”
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 many factors besides your sun sign to consider, such as the transits to all the planets and points in your horoscope. However, awareness of the current transits to your Sun’s position can be invaluable because the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and 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 May 28 until June 22, brings blessings and benefits to Gemini and, to a lesser degree, the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Taurus.
Mars in Aries from May 24 until July 04 energizes Aries and helps to a lesser degree the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius. However, with Mars related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, Mars will also challenge Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and Capricorn during this period. Check your planets’ positions in the above signs to know when there may be added stress, pressure, and aggravations.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, optimism, opportunities, and good fortune, direct at 06 degrees Aries, brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 06 degrees of any sign, especially Aries and the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, and the other cardinal signs, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
Saturn retrograde at 25 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 25 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 25 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus direct at 17 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points around 17 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 17 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.
Neptune direct at 25.5 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 25 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 25 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Pluto retrograde at 28 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 28 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 28 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Pisces 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 must adjust the times for where you live. For example, if you live on the West Coast, there is a three-hour difference, so you must subtract three hours.
The plus (+) lunar aspects are favorable. The minus (-) lunar aspects are more likely to bring challenges or difficulties. The + and - lunar aspects can exhibit positive and negative influences.

Guidelines for Using This Information
These newsletters are not your typical sun sign column. They provide much more information and guidance, but it may not be easy for you 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 of 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 short-term 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.
Contact me to know what’s going on in your horoscope and to make better decisions at better times. 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.
