Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Saturday, July 17, 2021
Moon in the water sign Scorpio from Saturday afternoon until later Monday afternoon 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.
There are thinkers, and there are feelers. Most of us are a blend of the two, but many are much more of one than the other. With the Sun nearing the end of Cancer and Moon in Scorpio, we have an emphasis on feelings due to a harmonious Sun-Moon alignment in the water signs, Cancer and Pisces.
Those born with an emphasis on the water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) are more sensitive, compassionate, imaginative, and psychic than most people. They are led more by their feelings and have natural healing abilities and a greater sense of the unity of life. They can readily sense the moods and feelings of those around them.
Because they are so sensitive to their environment, they can be easily misunderstood. They need to be in an atmosphere that is more positive and upbeat, or else they absorb the “bad vibes“, and end up feeling bad.
Their deeper emotional rapport can be a gift and a curse. They can get extremely close to those they care for and absorb their feelings too much and identify with their problems as if they were their own. They need to establish more boundaries between themselves and others.
Sun Opposite Pluto
Still in effect through this weekend is the most significant aspect this week (Sun opposite Pluto), which was highlighted in my last newsletter. Occurring once-a-year, this challenging solar aspect is related to jealousy, sabotage, manipulation, domination, hidden motives, fanaticism, arrogance, subversion, hidden agendas, power struggles, and political maneuvering, especially involving men.
Sun-Pluto aspects also increase the possibilities for protests, disasters, and extremes with politics, weather, finances, and issues such as the coronavirus.
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 Leo from June 27 until July 21 brings blessings and benefits to Cancer, and, to a lesser degree, the other water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Cancer.
Mars in Leo from June 11 until July 29 energizes Leo, and to a lesser degree, helps the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. During this period, Mars, the planet related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will also challenge Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius, 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 1.0 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 01 degrees Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and especially Pisces.
Saturn retrograde approaching 11 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 11 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 11 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus approaching 14.5 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 23 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 23 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 23 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Pluto retrograde at 25.5 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 25 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 25 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Scorpio 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, 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 can exhibit positive and negative influences.
Saturday, July 17
02:38 PM Moon enters Scorpio, where it remains until late Monday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
04:32 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.
Sunday, July 18
07:14 AM + (Moon in Scorpio 150 Node in Gemini) opportunities for connecting with people via networking, social interactions, and alliances with large and small groups.
09:45 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.
02:59 PM - (Moon in Scorpio 180 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.
Monday, July 19
05:33 AM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, meditation, and highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations.
06:15 AM - (Moon in Scorpio 90 Mars in Leo) opportunities for being bolder and more direct. However, this aspect magnifies feelings, passions, motivations and brings upsets, impatience, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions.
12:27 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 90 Venus in Leo) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
12:30 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Sun in Cancer) the exact time for the harmonious aspect between Sun and Moon highlighted at the top of this newsletter.
12:30 PM Moon in Scorpio Void until 05:07 PM when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
This Void is almost five hours, so 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. 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, 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.
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.
