Now Mercury-Venus Squared
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Saturday, April 24, 2021
My last newsletter highlighted a rare and favorable planetary alignment involving Mercury, Venus, and Uranus in Taurus. But now, Mercury and Venus are making challenging aspects to Saturn in Aquarius, which become exact on Sunday. Any child born, any wedding and new relationship, and any business or project started at this time will have the following qualities and challenges.
Venus square Saturn occurs about twice a year. People with this aspect do not find love to come as easily as those with favorable aspects to their Venus position. Like everyone else, they want to be loved and appreciated, but they are more likely to experience painful and failed relationships. Early in life, there is often a major disappointment. Typically, one or both parents neglected, abandoned, or abused them physically or emotionally. They didn't get the warmth, attention, and affection needed to feel secure and wanted, resulting in their feeling insecure and unloved. Unconsciously, they assumed they were not good enough to be loved, which gets them into all kinds of trouble. On the plus side, people with this aspect can be highly dedicated and loyal as partners once they find true love in their life.
Mercury square Saturn occurs about twice a year and is also associated with worries, negative thinking, and even depression. Mercury is thoughts and thinking, and Saturn is heavy, deep, and thorough. People with this aspect are prone to be inhibited, mistrustful, and depressive. Their thoughts are so deep and critical they often wish they were not so heavy and thorough. They want to feel “a bit lighter,” but their mind keeps wanting to figure everything out with preciseness and exactness. On the plus side, people with this aspect have deep and thorough thought patterns, which help them research and analyze everything in detail.
These aspects challenge anyone born at or with planets at 13 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. They should also help and support those born at or with planets at 13 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

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 the 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 Taurus from April 14 until May 08 brings blessings and benefits to Taurus, and to a lesser degree, the other earth signs, Vigo and Capricorn, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Taurus. Check your planets’ exact positions in Aries to know when Venus will bring benefits to your horoscope during the next three weeks.
Mars in Cancer from April 23 until June 11 energizes Cancer, and to a lesser degree, helps the other water signs, Scorpio and Pisces. During this period, Mars, the planet related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will also challenge Aries, Cancer, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius. 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, at 27.5 degrees Aquarius brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 28 degrees, especially Aquarius.
Saturn at 13 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 also creates 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 Libra 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 can exhibit positive and negative influences.
Saturday, April 24
12:05 PM Moon entered Libra, where it remains until early Monday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Scorpio.
Moon in the air sign Libra boosts Libra, and to a lesser degree, the other air signs, Gemini and Aquarius. Moon in Libra also helps any planets and points you have in Libra and should bring together more things for Libra on a short-term basis.
Within the context of social distancing, Moon in Libra also supports anyone’s involvement with Libra-related activities such as fostering relationships and diplomacy by being more interactive and accommodating; being more aware of the needs of friends, partners, and clients; and expressing oneself artistically and creatively including making everything around you more beautiful and harmonious.
01:19 PM - (Moon in Libra 90 Mars in Cancer) 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.
Sunday, April 25
04:58 AM - (Moon in Libra 150 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.
09:02 AM + (Moon in Libra 120 Saturn in Aquarius) opportunities for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities.
09:47 AM + (Moon in Libra 150 Venus in Taurus) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
Monday, April 26
12:00 AM - (Moon in Libra 150 Neptune in Pisces) 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.
07:15 AM - (Moon in Libra 90 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.
08:39 AM + (Moon in Libra 120 Jupiter in Aquarius) 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.
08:39 AM Moon in Libra Void until 12:18 PM when it enters the next sign, Scorpio.
This Void is almost 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 it can be difficult to sort everything out with so many factors presented, 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 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.
