Winter Solstice News

Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Wednesday, December 21, 2022


Moon in the fire sign Sagittarius from Thursday morning until Friday morning boosts Sagittarius and, to a lesser degree, the other fire signs, Aries and Leo. Moon in Sagittarius also helps any planets and points you have in Sagittarius and should bring together more things for Sagittarius on a short-term basis.


Moon in Sagittarius supports anyone’s involvement with Sagittarius-related attitudes and activities such as adventure, growth, and excitement; feeling more hopeful, optimistic, and forward-looking; sales, marketing, advertising, promotion, broadcasting, and media work; sports, athletics, and outdoor activities; books, publishing, knowledge, scholarship, lecturing, and higher education; exploring religious, ethical, and philosophical interests; and foreign languages, traveling abroad, and exploring other cultures.


The Winter Solstice


The first day of each season (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter) corresponds with the day the Sun enters the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn). In astrology, these are the cardinal signs because they are more initiating and action-oriented than the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) and the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).


Therefore, Sun leaving Sagittarius and entering Capricorn at 04:48 PM EST today marks winter’s official start in the Northern Hemisphere and summer in the Southern Hemisphere. This shift from Sagittarius to Capricorn highlights the differences between these two signs.


Sagittarius is more open, flexible, idealistic, assuming, and exploratory. Capricorn is more set, guarded, doubtful, pragmatic, and focused. Sagittarius is more liberal and extravagant. Capricorn is more conservative and frugal.


Sagittarius is more flexible and adaptable. It’s the risk-taker with far-reaching visions off into the future. On the other hand, Capricorn is more dependable and security oriented. More focused and accountable with what is right here and now.


Sagittarius is the half-full optimistic, and Capricorn is the half-empty pessimistic. Sagittarius relies more on faith and good luck to get where they want to go, while Capricorn depends on good-old grit and hard work. Sagittarius is big hopes and dreams. Capricorn can bring them down to reality and put them into a workable format.


Expect the Unexpected


Expect the unexpected because a challenging Sun-Uranus aspect, in effect the past few days and extending through Thursday, brings more excitement, restlessness, impulsiveness, aggravations, and ego battles than usual, especially involving men. The status quo tends to be upset with surprises, unexpected events, turbulent changes, and highly charged situations. It can be like lightning bolts coming out of nowhere.


Challenging Sun-Uranus aspects increase the chances for natural disasters such as extreme weather conditions, hurricanes, and earthquakes as well as accidents, attacks, violence, protests, anarchy, and escalated military tensions.


This vital aspect is relevant for any birth, wedding, decision, and business started around this time and all the issues in our country and worldwide. For most people, nothing special will happen with this aspect, but those with planets and points around 15 degrees Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should be more vigilant.


Current Sun Sign Factors


The sun-sign assessments below are only “the tip of the iceberg” for what you should know. A complete evaluation is far more complex and involved than any newsletter can present. For example, there are many other factors to consider besides your sun sign, such as the transits to all the planets and points in your horoscope. However, awareness of the current transits to your Sun’s position can be invaluable because the positions of the slower-moving planets (Jupiter in Aries, Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces, and Pluto in Capricorn) can create significant trends and events in your life.


Furthermore, to use this information correctly, you need to know the degree of your Sun sign, but the degree of your Sun is not your date of birth. If you don’t know the degree of your Sun, call me, and I will calculate it for you.

Lunar Aspects


The most important Moon in Sagittarius 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 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 must 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.


Wednesday, December 21


02:12 AM Moon entered Sagittarius, where it remains until Saturday morning when it enters the next sign, Capricorn.


02:18 AM + (Moon in Sagittarius 120 Jupiter in Aries) 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.


08:48 PM - (Moon in Sagittarius 180 Mars in Gemini) opportunities for bolder and more direct actions. However, this aspect magnifies feelings and passions, bringing impatience, rashness, impulsiveness, anger, and even forceful actions.


10:41 PM + (Moon in Sagittarius 150 Node in Taurus) opportunities for connecting with people via networking, social interactions, and alliances with large and small groups.


Thursday, December 22


03:22 AM- (Moon in Sagittarius 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.


03:15 PM - (Moon in Sagittarius 90 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.


03:15 PM Moon in Sagittarius Void until 02:49 AM Friday when it enters the next sign, Capricorn.


This Void is long, more than eleven hours, so take note because there tends to be a lull in the energy levels during Void periods. As a result, what you start or implement is less likely to turn out as planned or expected. It’s usually better to do things with less significance or no purpose than to start something new and vital. If you have a new idea, meet someone new, or start a business, 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 to sort everything out with 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 will likely 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 must be considered.


Contact me to know what’s going on in your horoscope and to make better decisions at better times. 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.
