Scorpio - The Season of Transformation and Empowerment

Brace yourself, folks.  We are about to enter my personal favorite time of year, the Scorpio season, which is truly a time of transformation and empowerment.  In addition to the astrological sign for Scorpio, I have included the Death card from the Celestial Tarot Deck in this post because it represents the Scorpio energy of rebirth. This card may be called Death, but by no means is it death on a physical level.  It has much more to do with a death of the old way of life and a rebirth into a new consciousness for the soul.  Scorpio loves crisis and is drawn to it like a moth to a flame because it views crisis as an opportunity for growth.  Scorpio is not a sign for the faint of heart and is inclined to probe the depths.  We have a month of intensity in store for us.

The Sun enters Scorpio on October 22, 2016, but the build-up to this energy began on October 19, 2016 when Mars and Pluto formed a conjunction in 15 degrees of Capricorn.  Mars and Pluto are the co-rulers of Scorpio, so this was no minor aspect to be taken lightly.  On that day I tweeted:

“Powerful Mars/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn today blends aggression with ambition to achieve goals.  Slight risk of bullying.”

The Mars/Pluto conjunction is all about taking charge, with Mars representing personal energy and courage while Pluto pertains to power, a higher will and a new chapter in soul growth.  I also find it supremely ironic that the third and last Presidential debate in the United States occurred on October 19th, fully demonstrating the energies of Mars and Pluto in action.

What else can we expect when the Sun is in the sign of Scorpio?  Scorpio is all about depth, intimacy and extremes of feeling.  As a Scorpio, I can personally attest to the fact that Scorpios tend to either love or hate; they have a hard time finding the middle ground due to their intense, passionate, strong-willed nature.  Superficiality and mediocrity just don’t cut it when the Sun is in Scorpio.  Prepare for a time of deep soul searching.  Jealousy, vindictiveness and manipulation could rear their ugly heads during the sun’s transit through Scorpio until November 21, 2016. But there is enormous potential for healing and transformation to occur and for us to literally become the most evolved symbol of Scorpio, the Phoenix, who rises from the ashes.  The Sun in Scorpio is a time of deep soul growth and regeneration.  It can also be an opportunity to reclaim some of the power that we have given away.  While Scorpio is indeed a very powerful sign, many Scorpios deal with the issue of giving their power way and when the Sun is in Scorpio, they have a green light to reclaim some of that power.

While Venus may now be playing happily in the more light-hearted sign of Sagittarius (it left Scorpio on October 18th), Mercury is about to enter Scorpio on October 24, 2016, where it resides until November 12, 2016.  Mercury in Scorpio is like a human surveillance camera because it doesn’t miss a trick with their observation skills and isn’t afraid to convey their perceptions. Strategy will be highlighted when Mercury is in Scorpio, which is another example of reclaiming power. Mercury will meet up with and form a conjunction to the Sun in 3 degrees of Scorpio on October 27, 2016.  Watch for communication to be very focused and laser sharp on that day, with a tendency towards the sarcasm that Scorpio is renowned for.  Beware the Scorpio stinger on October 27th and don’t be surprised if there is a spike in obsessive and compulsive behaviors on that day as well.

The season of Scorpio is a perfect time to embark on your own personal journey of transformation and empowerment. Astrology and tarot are valuable tools on the path of spiritual growth. Don’t waste the opportunity for healing and transformation that Scorpio season provides.  

If you are seeking more spiritual insight into your life, please consider getting an astrological reading. An astrological reading can provide valuable insight and tools.  If you are not quite ready for a full blown natal interpretation or a solar return forecast, I also offer one question astrological readings and composite couple readings that offer insight into the purpose of a relationship. And I offer shorter transit readings for three and six months which might help you navigate the rest of 2016 a little easier. If you purchase a three or six month transit reading, I will even look at how September’s eclipses affected you!

 A contribution in any amount is deeply appreciated as gratitude is a daily part of my spiritual practice.

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 still channeling that Virgo north node 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.

For more information on my Reiki services, please see this page on my site:

For my clients who can’t fit Friday into their schedule for a treatment or have difficulty traveling, I have also recently begun doing distance Reiki sessions for them.  I have a conversation with them 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 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 or call me at 617-304-2205. Additionally, I see clients at my home in Newton, Massachusetts and am generally available on weekends and evenings for your convenience.

Mars stationing direct this summer inspired me to launch a new endeavor that will deliver my services to you at an affordable cost in the form of package deals.  I am offering four options: Silver, Gold, Platinum and a Tarot special for my tarot clients. Please check it out at:
