Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Sunday, May 15, 2022
ASSOCIATED PRESS “A total lunar eclipse will grace the night skies this weekend, providing longer than usual thrills for stargazers across North and South America.
The celestial action unfolds Sunday night into early Monday morning, with the moon bathed in the reflected red and orange hues of Earth’s sunsets and sunrises for about 11/2 hours, one of the longest totalities of the decade. It will be the first so-called blood moon in a year.
Observers in the eastern half of North America and all of Central and South America will have prime seats for the whole show, weather permitting. Partial stages of the eclipse will be visible across Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Left out: Alaska, Asia and Australia.
'This is really an eclipse for the Americas,' said NASA’s Noah Petro, a planetary geologist who specializes in the moon. 'It’s going to be a treat.' All you need, he noted, are 'patience and eyeballs.'
A total eclipse occurs when Earth passes directly between the moon and the sun, and casts a shadow on our constant, cosmic companion. The moon will be 225,000miles away at the peak of the eclipse – around midnight on the East Coast.
There’ll be another lengthy total lunar eclipse in November, with Africa and Europe lucking out again, but not the Americas. Then the next one isn’t until 2025".
A Challenging Eclipse
Eclipses are traditionally thought to be ominous, portending disasters and catastrophes, especially when they form challenging aspects to certain plants, which is the case with this eclipse. Saturn, the planet related to pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, harsh realities, and murders, squares this Lunar Eclipse
With Moon at 25 degrees Scorpio opposite Sun at 25 degrees Taurus, this Lunar Eclipse is especially relevant for anyone with planets and points at 25 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius).
With Saturn, the planet related to karma, involved, there will likely be more truth and reality for any issue in your life, especially relationships, because Sun and Moon are opposite and Taurus and Scorpio are related to many relationship hot spots, including money and sex.
Jupiter in Aries
Jupiter’s entrance into Aries on Tuesday, May 10, was a major astrological event. As highlighted in recent newsletters, as Jupiter travels around the zodiac every twelve years, spending approximately a year in each of the twelve signs, it brings good things to whatever points and angles Jupiter aspects in your horoscope. This means that Jupiter will bring opportunities for everyone in the coming year, not just Aries.

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, 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 Aries from May 02 until May 28, brings blessings and benefits to Aries and, to a lesser degree, the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Aries.
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.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, optimism, opportunities, and good fortune, direct at 01 degrees Aries, brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 01 degrees of any sign, especially Aries and the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, and the other cardinal signs, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
Saturn direct 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 15.5 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points around 16 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 16 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.
Neptune direct at 25 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 28.5 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 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.
Sunday, May 15
07:43 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 180 Node in Taurus) opportunities for connecting with people via networking, social interactions, and alliances with large and small groups.
11:38 PM - (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.
11:39 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, meditation, and highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations.
Monday, May 16
12:14 AM the exact time for the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse highlighted at the top of this newsletter.
05:28 AM Moon in Scorpio Void until 07:50 AM when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
This Void is more than two 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 as planned or expected. It’s usually better to do things with less significance or no purpose in mind than trying to start something new and vital. If you have a new idea, meet someone new, or start a business, 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 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.
