A Christmas Miracle with Saturn and Uranus Form a Trine Aspect

The holidays are starting off on an auspicious note as Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries on December 24, 2016, which is Christmas Eve.  It is literally a Christmas miracle because Saturn and Uranus are not exactly known for their compatibility.  Indeed, they are really quite strange bedfellows.  Saturn is all about tradition and stability, while Uranus represents progress, change and a desire for freedom.  Saturn requires discipline, maturity and patience while Uranus is all about independence, breaking the rules and breaking out of its comfort zone.  What happens when the Great Teacher (Saturn) meets the Great Awakener (Uranus)?  Well, when these two work together, Saturn can tame the wilder side of Uranus and Uranus awakens Saturn to potential forms and structures that can prove to be more flexible.  It can prove to be a grounding influence as we seek to implement change.  In short, it is a win-win situation.  And the best part is that this aspect is exact again on May 18, 2017 and November 11, 2017.  The good vibration keeps on coming!

Many of us are still reeling from the effects of the past year’s Saturn in Sagittarius Neptune in Pisces squares that occurred on November 26, 2015, June 8, 2016 and September 10, 2016.  Reality and truth were tested to the max as we all scrambled to determine what the truth was.  Fantasy and reality became blurred.  And on many levels we are still reverberating from the Uranus in Aries Pluto in Capricorn squares of 2012-2015.  So it really is a nice change of pace for both of these heavy hitters, Saturn and Uranus, to be working together to usher in the change that 2017 will no doubt bring.

Mercury and Pluto have been conjunct in Capricorn from December 18-21, 2016.  Of course, Mercury stationed retrograde on December 19, 2016, when I tweeted:

When Mercury is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, we are passionate about our goals and our thinking and words have the power to create a new reality. The key piece of this aspect is to remember that Mercury retrograde cautions us to review carefully before proceeding with any major actions.

On Christmas Day, Venus in Aquarius will be sextiling Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius while trining Jupiter in Libra.  This is all happening around 20 degrees of each sign.  These are pretty sweet, harmonious aspects that hold strong potential for peace and harmony over the holidays.  Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries have all been involved in an ongoing (through April 2017) cardinal T-square that will affect anyone who has planets or points in 18-21 degrees of the cardinal signs.  Mars in Pisces will also be conjunct the south node and Neptune on Christmas Day, which signifies a cycle of karmic completion and a perfect opportunity to release our victim/martyr roles.

On December 26, 2016, Jupiter in Libra will be opposing Uranus in Aries.  This aspect will mark a shift in consciousness and things can happen out of the blue, fast-paced events that can truly liberate us. But as with all Jupiter transits, if you snooze you lose, do take advantage of whatever opportunities come your way on this day, because you don’t want to miss out!

We also have a New Moon coming up in 8 degrees of Capricorn on December 29, 2016.  And Uranus stations direct in 20 degrees of Aries on that same day, so be prepared for the year to end with some totally left-field, unexpected surprises and shocks!  This new moon is exactly conjunct my north node in the 3rd house, so I am looking forward, to it, Mercury retrograde notwithstanding!  This new moon will also form a conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn, which will place a greater emphasis on power issues, which will probably involve issues pertaining to government and financial structures. And Mars in Pisces will be sextiling Pluto in Capricorn, which will help us become more aware of our own center and relinquish and release our role of victim consciousness while creating a new reality.  A major theme of this new moon in Capricorn is finding your power.

Recently I undertook an intensive life purpose coaching training program and became certified as a Life Purpose Coach.  It was an intense, eye-opening experience that changed my life as it caused me to reflect on the story of my life.  But I left it with feelings of hope and light for the future that I want to share with others.  To that end, I am now offering Life Purpose Coaching to my menu of services.  You can read more about it at:

As an astrologer, I have decided to include an interpretation of the north node by sign and house placement as part of my coaching program.  After all, the north node does represent the soul’s purpose in life, so why not use it as a tool?  If you are feeling stuck and need some help in getting from Point A to Point B in your quest for making positive changes in your life, please email me at to schedule a complementary telephone consultation to discover if you are a good fit for this program.  I look forward to hearing from you.

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 a basic astrological reading that will offer insight into your astrological DNA and the major themes in your life and delving into any pressing issues, 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. If you purchase a three or six month transit reading, I will even look at how September’s eclipses affected you and take a peek at the eclipses of February 2017. An astrological reading also makes a great Christmas gift! You can learn more about my menu of astrological services, including the opportunity to provide a donation in the amount of your choice to demonstrate your support for my blog and daily astrological insights on Twitter at:

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.

I have recently joined the International Center for Reiki Training Membership Association.

I am also offering my Reiki Holiday Promotion again this year which allows you to purchase three treatments for yourself or as a gift of health for a loved one.  More details are available at:

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.

I have also launched a new endeavor that will deliver my services to you at an affordable cost in the form of package deals.  With the upcoming holiday season, any of these packages makes a great gift. I am offering four options: Silver, Gold, Platinum and a Tarot special for my tarot clients. Please check it out at:

In the spirit of the holiday season, I am also offering my Holiday Tarot Special, which allows you to purchase for yourself or a loved one a nine card tarot reading which focuses on one particular issue.  It makes a great gift. Check it out at:
