Change is Coming as Mercury and Venus Change Signs and New Moon in Aries

The month of April is starting off with a bang as both Mercury and Venus change signs on April 5th and we have a Super New Moon in Aries on April 7th.  Venus is moving from its place of exaltation in Pisces to one of its signs of detriment in Aries.  Venus, for the record, is in detriment in Aries and Scorpio, and is considered to be in fall in Virgo.  Venus in Aries will bring a completely different vibe to love and finances.  While Venus in Pisces is dreamy and oozing compassion, Venus in Aries takes a much more self-centered approach.  It has a very direct, blunt, spontaneous style.  This can be somewhat problematic but on the flip side, if you have been giving too much in your relationships, this is an excellent time to focus on getting your needs met.  Another constructive use of Venus in Aries is to act on what you are passionate about.

Mercury leaves Aries on April 5th and enters the earth sign of Taurus, where it will reside through June 12th due to the upcoming Mercury retrograde.  Mercury will station retrograde in 23 degrees of Taurus on April 28th, but it enters the shadow period on April 14th in 14 degrees of Taurus. Then Mercury will station direct on May 22nd in 14 degrees of Taurus.  Mercury in Taurus is all about communication becoming more measured and practical with common sense prevailing for the most part.  But beware of becoming too rigid in your thinking because Taurus is a fixed sign.  And we have a little over two months to acclimate to this energy.

The new moon in 18 degrees of Aries on April 7, 2016 is a Super New Moon to boot because the moon is closer to the earth and exerts a stronger pull on our psyche.  It is definitely going to be an action-oriented new moon because in addition to the sun and moon in Aries, Venus is in Aries, as well as Uranus and Eris, the goddess of chaos.  Some astrologers have gone so far as to describe Eris as an amped up version of Uranus.  And we have Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius, so there is an abundance of fire energy.  With all of these planets in fire signs, it is much easier to implement change.  We are also in the midst of a mutable T-square involving Jupiter in Virgo, Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces that is energized by Mars in Sagittarius.  This Mars action literally allows us to see the bigger picture so that we can implement change. This ongoing T-square is all about CHANGE because mutable energy adapts so well to change and literally encourages it.  Change can occur in the blink of an eye with this kind of energy.  And that cardinal Aries energy loves to initiate change.  Mark my words, if you have any planets or points in the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn between 15-20 degrees, you are going to feel the effects of this new moon big time.  Change is coming, so don’t even think of resisting it. A major theme of this new moon in Aries is to live our truth in a brave new way because Aries is after all the sign of the warrior.

I am trying to embrace this energy because this new moon in Aries will be opposing my Libra ascendant and squaring my Cancer midheaven by integrating change into my business through implementing more variety in my menu of services.  Many of my clients purchase solar returns for a yearly tune up, but for those of you who can’t wait for your birthday, I can also do forecasts for three or six months.  So my world is expanding!  I am also offering shorter tarot readings in the form of one or two questions.  I am really excited to be offering distant Reiki treatments to my repertoire. So far these have been on existing clients, but a preliminary intake can be done by email or telephone and I tend to follow up a Reiki distant session with a phone call. Feel free to contact me at if you are interested in any of these options. 

The north node in Virgo has an underlying theme of service to others.  In that spirit of pursuing my path as a healer, I am channeling that north node and Jupiter in Virgo energy by offering my Reiki services. If you are in the Boston area, please consider getting a Reiki treatment at Acupuncture for Everyone in Copley Square to destress, revitalize and remove blockages to healing.  It’s a perfect way to start your weekend off and can also be described as a spa for the soul to boot!   Reiki is the most profound treatment for stress relief because it concentrates on CALMING your body.

I have also recently become a member of the Fellowship of Massachusetts Energywork Practitioners.  It is a great resource for those seeking energyworkers.  Please feel free to check out this site at:
