Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Tuesday, December 21, 2021
Moon in the fire sign Leo from late Wednesday morning until Friday evening boosts Leo, and to a lesser degree, the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. Moon in Leo also helps any planets and points you have in Leo and should bring together more things for Leo on a short-term basis.
Moon in Leo supports anyone’s involvement with Leo-related attitudes and activities such as romance and courtship; connecting more with children and loved ones; fun, parties, entertainment, hobbies, and recreation; theater, art, and creative endeavors; wherever leadership and self-assurance can be applied; being on stage and projecting your confidence; and what is dramatic, glamorous, and in the public limelight.
Saturn Square Uranus
By far, the most significant factor in the sky now is Saturn square Uranus, which was covered in my last newsletter, “It May Be a Mess.” The “collision” between two major stress-producing planets has been building since early this month and becomes exact this weekend.
It increases the possibilities for stress, fears, disputes, bitterness, uncertainties, disruptions, and cancellations as well as accidents, aggressions, shootings, violence, extreme weather, explosions, earthquakes, and natural disasters.
Every time the Moon or any planet aligns with this Saturn-Uranus aspect, such as tomorrow afternoon (listed under the Lunar Aspects later in this newsletter), the effects of Saturn square Uranus become more pronounced.
This critical aspect is more relevant for anyone with points or planets (especially Ascendant, Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto) at 11 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
Every year and a half, Venus turns retrograde, which means it appears to move backward in the sky relative to the earth for about forty days when it moves approximately 29 degrees ahead of the Sun. It then begins to move backward in the sky until it reaches approximately 21 to 29 degrees behind the Sun.
On November 06, Venus entered Capricorn, and Sunday morning, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, art, and money, turned retrograde at 26 degrees Capricorn. This means Venus will continue to bring benefits to the house in your horoscope ruled by Capricorn and to any planets and points in your horoscope between 26 degrees Capricorn and 11 degrees Capricorn until late January when Venus turns direct.
With Venus Retrograde over the next six weeks, we can expect similar dynamics as when Mercury is retrograde. With Venus ruling values, money, and all matters relating to love and relationships, Venus Retrograde may not be the ideal time to commit to a financial plan, a relationship, or a marriage because of the changes and reevaluations Venus Retrograde can bring.
As with Mercury Retrograde, Venus Retrograde is not “bad” in and of itself. Instead, it provides opportunities to turn our attention inward to question certain areas of our lives.
For example, what do I enjoy the most in my life and what do I value and look forward to for the rest of my life? What is the reality of my finances and what am I willing to work for without compromising my values? And what is the reality of my relationships, how much do I value others, and how kind, loving, and selfless a person am I?
We all have complications, challenges, and issues in our lives, and we all face decisions with our relationships, jobs, career, health, money, business, and retirement. For these reasons, I offer a $75 Consultation (limited to 30-minutes) focused on any questions and concerns you have. Utilizing all my tools and experience, I will give you objective insights, workable solutions, and good timing to help you make the most of your life. To order this special report, click here to pay.
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 Sagittarius from December 13 until January 24 energizes Sagittarius, and to a lesser degree, helps the other fire signs, Aries and Leo. However, Mars, related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, will also challenge Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Sagittarius, 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, direct at 29 degrees Aquarius brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 29 degrees Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and especially Aquarius.
Saturn direct at 11 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 11 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 11 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Uranus retrograde at 11 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, breakthroughs, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points around 11 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 11 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.
Neptune direct at 20.5 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 25.5 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 26 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 26 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
The most important Moon in Leo 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.
Tuesday, December 21
04:53 PM Moon entered Leo, where it remains until Friday morning when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
Wednesday, December 22
05:24 AM + (Moon in Leo 120 Mars in Sagittarius) opportunities for being bolder and more direct with how you feel and express yourself.
02:28 PM (Moon in Leo 180 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.
02:49 PM - (Moon in Leo 90 Uranus in Taurus) opportunities for increased instincts, willfulness, and aspirations regarding anything new, different, exciting, and adventuresome. However, this can also
bring nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
Thursday, December 23
09:11 AM - (Moon in Leo 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.
07:07 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 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.
07:50 PM + (Moon in Leo 150 Venus in Capricorn) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
Friday, December 24
01:39 AM + (Moon in Leo 180 Jupiter in Aquarius) opportunities for any interpersonal situation, including meetings and working with the public. In addition, this lunar aspect increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
01:39 AM Moon in Leo Void until 03:24 AM when it enters the next sign, Virgo.
This Void is almost 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 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.
