Here Comes Mercury Direct
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Friday, October 15, 2021
Moon in the water sign Pisces from late Friday evening until Monday morning 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.
Here Comes Mercury Direct
Over the years, many people have told me that Mercury retrograde periods seem to bring them more problems and challenges than usual. The list of stories, some often crazy, is endless. And with this current Mercury retrograde (September 27 until October 18), more clients and subscribers than usual have been commenting that this period has been particularly challenging for them.
You could say this is true because there has been an unusually high number of other challenging factors the past three weeks, as highlighted in recent newsletters.
Mercury turning direct on Monday is important because there are usually significant shifts and changes with our plans, decisions, negotiations, projects, and relationships around the days Mercury goes retrograde and direct.
When Mercury turns direct, the choices you made and the plans you started when Mercury was retrograde are seen in a different light as unforeseen assumptions and mistakes "come to light” because Mercury, the planet ruling thinking and communication, is changing direction relative to the earth’s movement.
Mercury turning direct will be welcomed by many people. Still, this does not mean everything will now be fine and dandy for you and the world. Nor does this mean everything was supposed to go wrong the past three weeks when Mercury was retrograde.
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 Sagittarius from October 07 until November 05 brings blessings and benefits to Sagittarius, and, to a lesser degree, the other fire signs, Aries and Leo, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Sagittarius.
Mars in Libra from September 15 until October 30 energizes Libra, and to a lesser degree, helps the other air signs, Gemini and Aquarius. During this period, Mars, the planet related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will also challenge Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, 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 22 degrees Aquarius brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 22 degrees Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and especially Aquarius.
Saturn direct at 07 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 07 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 07 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus retrograde at 13.5 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 21 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 21 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 21 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Pluto direct at 24.25 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 24 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 24 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Pisces 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, 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. Sometimes there is a + and - lunar aspect, which can exhibit positive and negative influences.
Friday, October 15
10:21 PM Moon entered Pisces, where it remains until Monday morning when it enters the next sign, Aries.
Saturday, October 16
02:49 AM + (Moon in Pisces 90 Node in Gemini) opportunities for connecting with people via networking, social interactions, and alliances with large and small groups.
04:59 PM + (Moon in Pisces 90 Venus in Sagittarius) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
Sunday, October 17
12:59 PM + - (Moon in Pisces 00 Neptune in Pisces) this once-a-month lunar aspect brings opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, meditation, and highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. However, this aspect increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion and is not ideal for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
01:55 PM - (Moon in Pisces 150 Mars in Libra) 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.
08:20 PM Moon in Pisces Void until 06:03 AM Monday when it enters the next sign, Aries.
This Void is more than nine 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 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, applying the information in these newsletters with common sense allows you to 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 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.
