Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Saturday, April 16, 2022
Moon in the water sign Scorpio from late Saturday evening until late Monday evening boosts Scorpio and to a lesser degree, the other water signs, Cancer and Pisces. Moon in Scorpio also helps any planets and points you have in Scorpio and should bring together more things for Scorpio on a short-term basis.
Moon in Scorpio supports anyone’s involvement with Scorpio-related attitudes and activities such as being more attuned to intimacy, sexuality, and power issues; working on deeper emotions and feelings such as anger and resentment; focusing on self-transformation, esoteric studies, and the mysteries of life; any scientific exploration and research; and dealing with mortgages, taxes, insurance, wills, surgery, medical records, brokerage accounts, and credit card statements as well as plumbing, sewerage, air conditioning, and recycling.
Since Putin invaded Ukraine almost two months ago, we have witnessed so much destruction and atrocities, including genocide.
During this time, my newsletters explained how discordant aspects from Sun and Mars to other planets would intensify the war, namely, around March 03 (Mars conjunct Pluto), around March 22 (Mars square Uranus), and around April 04 (Mars conjunct Saturn).
Unfortunately, another significant discordant aspect, Sun square Pluto, is now in effect from this past week until the middle of this coming week. This challenging aspect is related to jealousy, sabotage, manipulation, domination, hidden motives, fanaticism, arrogance, subversion, hidden agendas, power struggles, and political maneuvering, especially involving men.
Discordant Sun-Pluto aspects represent the misuse of personal power, dominating or manipulating others, and the subtle ways of trying to control situations or other people. The tyrant in you can come out, or you find yourself dealing with the dark, tyrannical side of other people.
Sun-Pluto aspects also bring deep introspection and reflection, the exposure of secrets and hidden agendas, and increased possibilities for extremes with politics, weather, finances, and any issue and complication worldwide, such as the coronavirus and the war in Ukraine.
On the plus side, this is an excellent time to confront and deal with your demons, something that is no longer working for you - from old, outworn possessions to an unhealthy relationship or a deeply ingrained, self-defeating attitude.
Sun square Pluto is more relevant for those with planets and points around 28 and 29 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
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, 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 Pisces from April 05 until May 02, brings blessings and benefits to Pisces, and to a lesser degree, the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Pisces.
Mars in Pisces from April 15 until May 24 energizes Pisces and helps to a lesser degree the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio. However, with Mars related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, Mars will also challenge Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Sagittarius during this period. 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, direct at 25 degrees Pisces, brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 25 degrees of any sign, especially Pisces and the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, and the other mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius.
Saturn direct at 23.5 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 24 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 24 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus direct and approaching 14 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, 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 direct at 24 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 24 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 24 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Pluto direct at 28.5 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 29 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 29 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Scorpio 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. The + and - lunar aspects can exhibit positive and negative influences.
Saturday, April 16
08:22 PM Moon entered Scorpio, where it remains until late Monday evening when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
10:54 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Mars in Pisces) opportunities for trusting your instincts and being bolder and more direct with how you feel and express yourself.
Sunday, April 17
06:34 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 150 Chiron in Aries) opportunities for healing and with family matters.
06:43 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 180 Mercury in Taurus) opportunities for perception, thoughtfulness, communication, and writing.
06:50 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Venus in Pisces) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
07:27 PM - (Moon in Scorpio 180 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.
Monday, April 18
10:00 AM + (Moon in Scorpio 180 Node in Taurus) opportunities for connecting with people via networking, social interactions, and alliances with large and small groups.
11:30 AM - (Moon in Scorpio 90 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.
12:39 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, meditation, and highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations.
02:36 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 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.
08:32 PM Moon in Scorpio Void until 10:16 PM when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
This Void is almost three 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 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 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.
