A Powerful New Moon in Aries and Venus Enters Taurus



We are heavily entrenched in the season of Aries, which became even clearer on April 3 when Mercury entered Aries, joining the Sun, Venus, Ceres and Chiron.  On that day I tweeted:

I don’t know about you, but I noticed the change to Mercury in Aries immediately.  For me it has been manifesting in sudden bouts of anger.  Okay, I admit that when the cleaning person broke my lamp and I contacted her boss with a photo of the broken lamp shade pieces it was justified, but I was uttering some choice words before I breathed and texted her. She has agreed to compensate me financially for it, so it all worked out.

The aspects were fairly mellow this week after Mercury entered Aries, until April 9 when Mars in 21 degrees of Gemini squares Neptune in 21 degrees of Pisces. This aspect is not going to be fun, folks.  It will be rife with confusion, deception and manipulation.  I loved what astrologer Pam Gregory said about Mars square Neptune: “aggression at sea.”  I certainly hope that she is wrong, but it is an apt interpretation. It doesn’t help that the Moon in Pisces is conjunct Neptune. That is kind of a double whammy if ever I saw one.  I have Neptune in the 1st house conjunct my ascendant, and I love to extoll the spiritual qualities of Neptune, but I think that we might be hard pressed to find them with this aspect, as it tends to dissipate energy.  Just be kind to yourself and keep your expectations for productivity low on this day.  It also seems that there is news about COVID-19 whenever Neptune is aspected.

But the New Moon in 22 degrees of Aries on April 11 will be akin to a gun being fired at the start of a race to set things in motion quickly. Big decisions will be made. I mentioned earlier that a lot of this action is due to the fact that the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Venus, Ceres and Chiron are in Aries.  Action is a major theme of this New Moon. 

When the Moon is in Aries, we are more courageous and a New Moon that just happens to be conjunct Mercury in Aries supplies the courage to take more risks and say what we are feeling.  The Moon enters Aries on April 10 and on that day it conjuncts Chiron in 5 degrees of Aries, so there is a strong likelihood that we will be getting in touch with some old emotional wounds for the purpose of healing them.  Pluto in Capricorn is a heavy hitter in this New Moon.  Venus in 26 degrees of Aries is squaring Pluto on April 11 and this aspect will generate tension, conflict, control issues and obsessive-compulsive behavior.  I have a natal Venus Pluto square, so I am all too familiar with what it entails.  It could also bring up issues with a third party in and highlight triangles in relationships.  But it does have a way of weeding out toxic habits and perhaps ending relationships that no longer serve us. It is a pretty safe bet to predict that there will be lots of emotional intensity and themes of freedom, independence, safety and security will be rampant.

Pluto in Capricorn is very busy on a decluttering mission for the first half of April. The Sun in Aries will be exactly squaring Pluto on the 13th and Mercury in Aries will be squaring Pluto in Capricorn in mid-April.  When the Sun is squaring Pluto, we will be dealing with control issues and ego conflicts.  It’s important to remember that we need to let go, let the transformation occur and reclaim our inner power.  Mercury squaring Pluto will bring intense interactions with others and we could find ourselves communicating in a very defensive manner. But we are releasing toxic thoughts that need to go.

All is not lost with this upcoming New Moon, however.  We have some very positive aspects occurring.  The New Moon in 22 degrees of Aries is forming supportive sextiles to Mars in 23 degrees of Gemini and Jupiter in 25 degrees of Aquarius.  These sextiles supply energy, luck and foster expansion of our goals.  And Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Aquarius are trining each other, which provides energy for our visions of the future and Jupiter expands our courage to pursue those dreams.  These are definitely bright spots on the New Moon and we should focus on those while we are setting new intentions, which is what we should be doing on a New Moon.

On April 14, we have an astrological treat in store for us when Venus leaves Aries and enters one of its happy places, Taurus.  Venus is exalted in Pisces, but it rules Taurus and Libra, so it is right at home in Taurus and eminently comfortable. Just in case you hadn’t noticed, Venus is not the happiest camper in Aries.  When Venus is in Taurus, it is more sensual and seeks security and values that will go the distance.  We will also feel more emotionally grounded.  But we can be torn between spending money on our love of luxury versus saving.  And the shadow side of Venus in Taurus is possessiveness.  Venus will remain in Taurus until May 8, so enjoy the ride. 

If you are curious about how all of these planetary changes will be affecting you personally, please consider getting an astrological reading.

The coronavirus outbreak is causing me to increase the number of distant Reiki sessions I do because people are concerned about the spread of the infection. I have decided to suspend my in-person Reiki sessions until further notice in order to practice social distancing. I no longer have my Brookline office, so all of my Reiki sessions will be distant Reiki sessions for the foreseeable future. When it becomes clearer that the virus no longer poses a threat, I will find a new space to practice. In the meantime, a distant Reiki session is the perfect opportunity to safely build up your immune system and if you have contracted coronavirus, you can be treated safely from the comfort of your home. My procedure is to have a conversation with a client about what they hope to achieve from a session, we set up a time for the session to take place when they will be in a state to receive healing energy and I follow up with a telephone conversation to discuss their experience and my perception of their blockages. I do miss seeing my clients, so I am now offering Zoom consultations/intakes before the session so that we can see each other. I have also incorporated a new technique with my distance Reiki treatments since I don’t always have a photo of my client.  I use a teddy bear so that I can scan and focus the healing energy where it is needed. If this appeals to you, please feel free to contact me by email at lindasim54@gmail.com or call me at 617-304-2205. The cost for distance Reiki sessions is based on a sliding scale of $30 -$50. For your convenience, I accept Venmo for payment.  I have also written an article about distance Reiki, which is available at:

Mercury is in a Hurry as it Zips through Aries and the North Node Pushes Us Towards Our Collective Path




 

The planet Mercury is wasting no time this month as it enters the cardinal fire sign of Aries on April 3, 2021 and cruises through at breakneck speed in Aries until April 19, 2021.  Communication is about to change in a very big way, and if you blink you just might miss it.  Many of us got complacent with Mercury in Aquarius from January 8 through March 15 with the first Mercury retrograde of 2021.  Then Mercury entered the mutable water sign of Pisces on March 15.  I don’t know about you, but from my personal experience and from everything I have been hearing from friends and clients, it has been a highly emotional time and the water works have been flowing nonstop since Mercury entered Pisces.  People who rarely cry have been subject to the feels and tears have been released by one and all.

But when Mercury moves into Aries for sixteen days on April 3, all of this is about to change dramatically.  I am sure that emotional release was necessary with Mercury in Pisces, but Mercury in Aries is a whole new ball game. Mercury in Aries likes to express ideas with more passion than usual.  Our minds are restless and impatient as spontaneity is the order of the day.  We are going to be speaking our minds clearly and directly with no subterfuge. Of course the shadow side of Mercury in Aries is that we might be a little less tactful as we are on a course to translate our dreams into action.  We will be filled with courage and innovation. Trust your first thoughts because they are the best and most accurate at this time.  And the best part is that Mercury is joining the Sun and Venus in Aries, so team Aries is in full force until April 14 when Venus is the first to leave Aries for Taurus.

We have also been under the influence of the North Node in Gemini recently. The North Node has been in the sign of Gemini since May 6, 2020 and will remain there until January 18, 2022.  The North Node represents where we are stretching out of our comfort zone to attain our highest purpose.  When the North Node is in Gemini, that purpose is to reveal and disseminate truth and knowledge in a friendly and straightforward manner.  When I was first learning astrology many years ago, I remember my astrology teacher saying that Gemini was the most democratic sign of all the air signs.  We really need that to be true during these challenging times. But it can also be unpredictable and too curious for its own good, so be mindful of that.  Don’t forget that while the North Node is in Gemini, we are dealing with the South Node in Sagittarius and a certain bluntness and lack of tack can accompany it.

I have been musing quite a bit lately on the North Node in Gemini because it has been conjuncting my Moon in Gemini in my 8th house.  This transit only happens every 19 years, so it has caused me to reflect on what was happening in my life during 2002.  But overall the North Node in Gemini has been very active lately.  During the Full Moon in Libra on March 28, it was also conjunct Mars in Gemini, which could have served as an agitating influence or a call for action.

But during the first week in April the North Node will also be trining Saturn in 11-12 degrees of Aquarius.  Trines are easy flowing aspects and this is a very good thing in terms of making progress for creating new structures in our lives that benefit the collective greater good.  Hopefully this will manifest in more honesty in spreading the word on how to implement positive changes in the world.

The First Super Full Moon of 2021 is in Relationship-Oriented Libra

 


The first Super Full Moon of 2021 is about to happen on March 28, 2021 in 8 degrees of Libra.  It is larger and closer to earth than most full moons, it can be perceived as being more beautiful because of its visibility and this one will pack a double whammy on love and relationships because it occurs in the relationship-oriented sign of Libra.

We know the drill that emotions run high around a Full Moon.  This one is no exception due to the fact that Chiron in Aries is prominently aspected.  It is conjunct both the Sun and Venus in Aries, which will serve as a reminder of the painful parts of love. And the Full Moon in Libra opposes Chiron and Venus in Aries. But Chiron’s presence also lends a healing vibe to this Full Moon. The past week has been very emotional, especially with two mass shootings occurring in the United States: in Georgia on March 16 and Colorado on March 22.  The Moon in Libra seeks justice and the south node of the Moon is in Sagittarius, which pertains to legal issues.  Is it possible for us to have some closure or resolution (major Full Moon themes) on gun control?

I am not exaggerating when I say this Full Moon could have some major resolution issues.  Think back to October 16, 2020 when we had a New Moon in 23 degrees of Libra.  Since New Moons represent beginnings, what seeds for a fresh start were you planting then?  You just might be reaping the benefits of those endeavors now.  If you have any planets in the early degrees of the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn expect to be impacted heavily by this Full Moon.

This Full Moon in Libra falls in my 12th house of karma, and is conjunct my Libra ascendant.  And it squares my nodes in the cardinal signs of Cancer and Capricorn. As if that weren’t enough emotional intensity, the north node of the Moon is also conjunct my Gemini Moon in my 8th house. So I am highly attuned to this energy and am feeling my psychic and empathic oats.  If you are an Aries, you will feel the effects of this Full Moon in your relationships.  Libras will be very emotional and not averse to hiding their feelings, while Cancers and Capricorns will be striving to find a work/life balance. And we can’t rule out more unpredictable events occurring due to the fact that the Full Moon is inconjunct Uranus in 8 degrees of Taurus.

Contentious communications are likely during this Full Moon because we also had Mercury in Pisces squaring Mars in Gemini on March 23.  On that day I tweeted:

But as challenging as all of this sounds, we do have some hope emerging from this Full Moon.  There is a Grand Trine in Air present involving the Moon in 8 degrees of Libra, Saturn in 11 degrees of aquarius and mars in 14 degrees of Gemini. In keeping with one of the other themes of a Full Moon, a lot of information will be revealed around this time.  And having Saturn involved in the mix is a good thing; it will help provide the willingness to work on healing the pain in relationships by working with the Moon and Mars in Aquarius.  It’s literally the power of three with emotion, structure and action.  I know that I have my own set of personal challenges with this Full Moon, but a part of me is stoked because I have a Grand Air Trine in my natal chart and while I don’t look forward to having Saturn conjunct my natal Mars, I am curious as to how having Mars in Gemini conjunct my natal Moon will manifest.

The Sun and Venus Enter Aries While Mercury in Pisces Gets Busy


 

Relief is on the way for those of us who have been emotionally drowning in Pisces energy. The recent New Moon, Sun and Venus in Pisces, coupled with the one year anniversary of the pandemic on March 11, have taken a huge toll emotionally on many people.  I have been crying a lot more and I have heard similar tales from friends and clients.  I swear that Kleenex will be to 2021 what toilet paper was to 2020 – an item that is in big demand and hard to find.

Aries season is about to kick off.  The Sun enters the cardinal fire sign of Aries on March 20 as spring and International Astrology Day are officially launched.  The Sun is exalted in Aries and we could certainly use a shot of fire energy after all of this Pisces pileup which is highly emotional.  When the Sun is in Aries, we are more enthusiastic, spontaneous, impulsive and have the urge to initiate.  We tend to be very direct and focused on ourselves.  There is a very pioneering spirit present and independence is quite important to us.  It’s a time of letting go of the past and living in the moment.  Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and symbolizes new beginnings. After the past year, we could all benefit from this shot of adrenaline energy.  Aries is ruled by Mars, don’t forget. 

On March 21 Venus leaves Pisces and moves into Aries, where it stays until April 14.  When Venus is in Aries, love is spontaneous and sometimes impatient.  We are more into the love of the chase during this transit.  It’s time for a fresh start in love and money.  Feel free to go after what you want at this time.

But while the Sun and Venus are out of Pisces, we still have Mercury in Pisces.  And it is quite busy.  Mercury finally cleared its retrograde shadow in Aquarius on March 13, but it entered Pisces on March 15, inspiring me to tweet:

Mercury in Pisces has many of us questioning if Mercury is still retrograde.  It has a really spacy quality.  I have been on the receiving end of mix-ups and delays in communications.  I have heard it from clients too.  On March 17, I experienced two short-term power outages.  The second one occurred when I was preparing dinner, which delayed it by thirty minutes.

On March 21, Mercury in Pisces will be forming a supportive sextile to Uranus in 8 degrees of Taurus.  This should give us some visionary energy opening us up to new and different ideas and ways of doing things.  Bring it on!  But on March 23, Mercury in Pisces is living up to its Trickster image by squaring Saturn in 10 degrees of Aquarius.  This aspect has a theme of plotting, scheming and deception with an aura of negative thinking thrown in for good measure.  It doesn’t help that the Moon in Leo is involved in a T-square with Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus.  Try to remember that is a temporary influence and things are not as dire as they seem, but be mindful that March 23 could be a tense day.

The coronavirus outbreak is causing me to increase the number of distant Reiki sessions I do because people are concerned about the spread of the infection. I have decided to suspend my in-person Reiki sessions until further notice in order to practice social distancing. I no longer have my Brookline office, so all of my Reiki sessions will be distant Reiki sessions for the foreseeable future. When it becomes clearer that the virus no longer poses a threat, I will find a new space to practice. In the meantime, a distant Reiki session is the perfect opportunity to safely build up your immune system and if you have contracted coronavirus, you can be treated safely from the comfort of your home. My procedure is to have a conversation with a client about what they hope to achieve from a session, we set up a time for the session to take place when they will be in a state to receive healing energy and I follow up with a telephone conversation to discuss their experience and my perception of their blockages. I do miss seeing my clients, so I am now offering Zoom consultations/intakes before the session so that we can see each other. I have also incorporated a new technique with my distance Reiki treatments since I don’t always have a photo of my client.  I use a teddy bear so that I can scan and focus the healing energy where it is needed. If this appeals to you, please feel free to contact me by email at lindasim54@gmail.com or call me at 617-304-2205. The cost for distance Reiki sessions is based on a sliding scale of $30 -$50. For your convenience, I accept Venmo for payment.  I have also written an article about distance Reiki, which is available at:

I urge everyone to engage in massive amounts of self-care and follow the protective measures of washing your hands frequently, maintaining social distancing, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, wearing a face mask when going outside your home and staying home if you are sick. And get a vaccine when you are eligible. I repeat, you do not want to get this virus! I speak from personal experience and consider myself very fortunate to have survived Coronavirus. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

A New Moon in Pisces Paves the Way for a Pisces State of Mind

 



We are thickly entrenched in Pisces season these days.  The Sun has been in Pisces since February 18 and Venus joined the Sun on February 25. Neptune remains in Pisces until 2025.  On March 10, the Sun and Neptune hooked up in Pisces, inspiring me to tweet:

But there is more to come in terms of that Piscean dreamy vibe.  We have a New Moon in 23 degrees of Pisces on March 13.  Traditionally New Moons are all about setting intentions and planting seeds for our dreams and this one has some potent energy for turning our dreams into a reality.  It is conjunct Venus and Neptune in 20 degrees of Pisces.  Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, which elevates this New Moon to eclipse status in terms of it being like a New Moon on steroids.  Neptune can serve as a muse and inspire us to be more selfless, compassionate and empathetic.  The New Moon in Pisces is also getting a boost with a sextile from Pluto in 26 degrees of Capricorn; this will add a tone of spiritual renewal to the mix.  Neptune definitely has its shadow side, which includes chaos, confusion, deception, loss and sacrifice.  COVID-19 is a perfect example of Neptune at its worst, so don’t be surprised if you hear some negative news about the vaccine or mutations.

But the perk of having this New Moon in Pisces is that if we need trust our intuition for making decisions, we will be richly rewarded.  This is one of those times that we need to pay close attention to and heed our gut instincts with all of this water energy. And don’t forget your dreams because they will probably be more active around this time as they can be a rich source of information for us.  Mars in Gemini is also trining Saturn in Aquarius on the New Moon, which is an extremely favorable influence for making choices about new paths to embark on.  Mars in Gemini presents us with at least two choices, but its trine to Saturn in the fixed sign of Aquarius is a green light for acting on something that will go the distance and create some stability for the future.  Technology could feature prominently in these decisions.

On March 15 Mercury sails into Pisces after having spent what seemed like an eternity in the sign of Aquarius due to the Mercury retrograde that occurred from January 30 to February 20. Mercury actually cleared its retrograde shadow on the New Moon, so we are all set. Mercury will be in Pisces until April 3.  Mercury in Pisces will mark a big change in communication.  Mercury in Aquarius was all about detached thinking, but Mercury in Pisces features thinking on an intuitive and emotional level.  Communication is more about the feels and less about the words.  We will be very creative, but a lot less detail-oriented, so we might forget certain appointments.  Don’t be surprised if you find it harder to distinguish fact from fantasy and start embracing escapism and denial.  Fogginess in communication could prevail; the mental clarity of Mercury in Aquarius is no longer with us.  It’s like we are walking on the beach on an overcast day.

A Busy Moon and a Mystical Sun-Neptune Conjunction

 



After a hectic first two months of 2021, we were bound to get a breather. This could very well be the March that comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion.  I kid you not, this is a relatively quiet week astrologically where the main action is coming from the Moon and the annual Sun-Neptune conjunction in Pisces.

The Moon exited the month of February with a Full Moon in Virgo on the 27th and on the 28th it formed a Grand Earth Trine, which inspired me to tweet:

The Moon has spent the past week in Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius but on March 6, it returns to an earth sign-Capricorn.  It’s about to get very busy in Capricorn.  On the 7th, the Capricorn Moon is inconjunct Mars in 2 degrees of Gemini.  This is going to be a very touchy and hyper-emotional period accompanied by anger and manipulation.  The best coping strategy for dealing with this aspect is to curb your emotions.  That Moon in Capricorn is also squaring Chiron in 7 degrees of Aries on the same day, which will undoubtedly trigger some trauma and emotional wounding as hurt feelings and painful emotions surface.  Don’t forget that Pluto is still in the sign of Capricorn.

On March 9 the Moon enters Aquarius, where Jupiter and Saturn are holding court.  The Aquarius Moon will square off with Uranus in 7 degrees of Taurus.  This is significant because Uranus rules the sign of Aquarius and the effects are exacerbated.  Be prepared for rapid mood swings and impulsive reactions.  Emotional outbursts from friends or family might require more patience and sensitivity than we normally have.  Frustration in relationships is also likely as we desire to break free of old patterns.  The Moon is also conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on the 9th, which can come off as a real buzz kill.  It’s a heavy emotional vibe that comes with serious emotional baggage.  Negative attitudes and challenging situations are other features of this aspect.  It’s time to call upon our self-discipline and emotional maturity to deal with this temporary but frustrating time.

But on March 10, we get a nice reprieve.  The Sun and Neptune are conjunct in 20 degrees of Pisces.  This is a pretty sweet aspect that increases our sensitivity, creativity, intuition and empathy.  Compassion is an all-time high.  I’m pretty stoked about it because it falls in my 6th house and trines my Cancer Midheaven as well as my Sun and Venus in Scorpio.  I will have a Grand Water Trine going on.  I already have a distance Reiki session booked for that day.  This is a beautiful, mystical and spiritual aspect, but we need to be mindful of its shadow side.  Neptune is also associated with deception and smoke screens, so don’t fall prey to con artists and sob stories.  Set some boundaries in your relationships by all means.  You might feel like indulging in some escapist behavior, so feel free to watch some movies on Netflix or read some fantasy novels.  Just don’t get too carried away…
