Getting Your Hands Dirty
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Sunday, April 18, 2021
On April 14, Venus, the planet related to love, money, and the arts, moved from Aries to Taurus, where it remains until May 08, bringing blessings and benefits to Taurus and the house in your horoscope ruled by Taurus. Check your planets’ exact positions in Taurus to know when Venus brings benefits to your horoscope during the next three weeks.
This evening, Sun enters Taurus, where it remains until May 20, and tomorrow morning, Mercury enters Taurus, where it remains until May 19. This evening, Sun and Mercury align by conjunction, giving extra mental focus and drive for anyone born at the end of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn and anyone born at the start of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Sun, Mercury, and Venus changing signs is not nearly as significant as when the outer planets (Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto) change signs, but this shift from Aries to Taurus will boost Taurus, and a lesser degree, the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn, for the coming month.
With the focus now more on Taurus and the Moon in Cancer the next two days, it’s one of the best times of the year to get your hands dirty. Taurus rules soil, gardening, landscaping, flowers, herbs, horticulture, shrubs, trees, forestry, agriculture, crops, and geology. Cancer rules gardening, housing, real estate, land development, farming, and agriculture.

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 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.
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 26 degrees Aquarius brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 26 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 is also creating 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 Cancer 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.
Saturday, April 17
03:25 PM Moon entered Cancer, where it remains until early Tuesday morning when it enters the next sign, Leo.
Moon in Cancer gives a boost to Cancer, and a lesser degree, the other water signs, Scorpio and Pisces. Moon in Cancer also helps any planets and points you have in Cancer and should help bring more things together for Cancer on a short-term basis.
Moon in Cancer supports anyone’s involvement with Cancer-related activities such as helping family and friends and nurturing people along; cooking, household duties, home decorating and repairs; antiques, memories, and genealogy; and gardening, housing, real estate, land development, farming, and agriculture.
Sunday, April 18
02:13 PM + (Moon in Cancer 135 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.
04:23 PM - (Moon in Cancer 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.
Monday, April 19
10:55 AM + (Moon in Cancer 120 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation as well as highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations.
07:48 PM + (Moon in Cancer 130 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.
08:03 PM - (Moon in Cancer 180 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.
08:03 PM Moon in Cancer Void until 02:10 AM Tuesday when it enters the next sign, Leo.
This Void is almost six four 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 with so many factors presented, it can be difficult to sort everything out, 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 there are significant aspects 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.
