The War Aspect
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Sunday, February 27, 2022
Moon in the air sign Aquarius from early Sunday afternoon until Tuesday afternoon boosts Aquarius, and to a lesser degree, the other air signs, Gemini and Libra. Moon in Aquarius also helps any planets and points you have in Aquarius and should bring together more things for Aquarius on a short-term basis.
Moon in Aquarius supports anyone’s involvement with Aquarius-related attitudes and activities such as analyzing, observing, questioning, experimenting, and investigating; exploring what is new, novel, unusual, progressive, and nonconforming; science, technology, engineering, computers, electronics, inventions, and aviation; and working with clubs, organizations, special interest groups, and philanthropic and charitable organizations.
The Ukrainian People
You cannot help but feel compassion for the Ukrainian people. They have endured so much. “During World War I, the Bolshevik revolution and the Civil War that followed, Kyiv was occupied by five different armies. In the 1930s, Stalin engineered a famine that killed more than three and half million Ukrainians. Then came the Great Terror, World War II, Nazi occupation, the Holocaust, ethnic cleansing, mass deportation to the Gulag, and a nuclear catastrophe. When the USSR dissolved in 1991, Russia became its successor state. Ukraine and 13 other constituent Soviet Republics became duly independent states. In Ukraine, years of corruption, gangsterism, and oligarchy followed.” -- Wall Street Journal, February 26- 27, 2022
Mars Conjunct Pluto
And now with Putin’s aggressions, the Ukrainians are under siege with the war aspect, Mars conjunct Pluto, active. This powerful planetary aspect occurs only once every two and a half years and has been building since January 24 when Mars entered Capricorn. Its significance increased last week when the orb between Mars and Pluto became less than three degrees.
Mars conjunct Pluto can bring great confidence, superhuman efforts, and record achievements. Both Mars and Pluto represent energy and willpower, such as with a fighter and soldier. As a result, exceptional leadership, motivation, and determination can help you be more productive and achieve more than usual.
Unfortunately, this intense aspect is a warning about the misuse of power. The drive for personal achievement and control over one’s life can be intense. People with this aspect can have tremendous drive and energy, but they can also be excessively willful, oppressive, or compulsive about what they want and how they go about getting it. They can battle anyone or anything that is an obstacle to their needs, and as a result, there are ego battles and conflicts.
Therefore, the possibilities increase for turmoil, ruthlessness, violence, assaults, injuries, brutality, cruelty, murders, and war. Fanatic and self-righteous attitudes come to the forefront. The need to “be right” with little room for compromise can lead to conflicts, threats to life, and terrorism.
Nothing special may occur in your life, but with this aspect peaking at 28 degrees of Capricorn, anyone with planets or points around 28 degrees of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn may benefit. On the other hand, this position is potentially stressful and challenging for those with planets and points at 28 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and Libra.
For example, if your Venus is at 28 degrees Capricorn, there could be intense romantic passions and artistic expression. On the other hand, if your Saturn is at 28 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and Libra, this could be a highly demanding and stressful time for you.
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 Capricorn for four months, from November 05 until March 06, brings blessings and benefits to Capricorn, and, to a lesser degree, the other earth signs, Taurus and Virgo, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Capricorn.
Mars in Capricorn from January 24 until March 06 energizes Capricorn, and to a lesser degree, helps the other earth signs, Taurus and Virgo. However, related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, Mars will also challenge Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn during this period. 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, direct and approaching 14 degrees Pisces, brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 14 degrees of any sign, especially Pisces and the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, and the other mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius.
Saturn direct and approaching 19 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 19 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 19 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus direct at 11.5 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, breakthroughs, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points around 12 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 12 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.
Neptune direct at 22.5 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 direct at 27.75 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 Aquarius 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.
Sunday, February 27
01:35 PM Moon entered Aquarius, where it remains until Tuesday afternoon when it enters the next sign, Pisces.
Monday, February 28
08:49 AM - (Moon in Aquarius 90 Uranus in Taurus) opportunities for increased instincts, willfulness, and aspirations regarding anything new, different, exciting, and adventuresome. However, this also brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
05:11 PM + (Moon in Aquarius 00 Mercury in Aquarius) this once-a-month lunar aspect brings opportunities for perception, thoughtfulness, communication, and writing.
09:01 PM + - (Moon in Aquarius 00 Saturn in Aquarius) this once-a-month lunar aspect brings opportunities for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities. However, this aspect can also be challenging because it is emotionally restrictive and can create issues, worries, and differences.
Tuesday, March 01
08:31 AM + (Moon in Aquarius 00 Node in Taurus) opportunities for connecting with people via networking, social interactions, and alliances with large and small groups.
08:31 AM Moon in Aquarius Void until 03:53 PM when it enters the next sign, Pisces.
This Void is more than seven 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 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 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.
