Make Way for the Ram as Aries Season Kicks into High Gear

Are you feeling cranky lately? If so, there is a perfectly cogent explanation.  We are heading into Aries season.  The Sun enters Aries on March 20, 2017, but Venus is already in Aries and Mercury entered Aries on March 13, 2017, inspiring me to tweet:

I don’t know about you, but I felt that Mercury in Aries energy immediately.  Maybe because Mercury’s entrance into Aries inconjuncted my natal Mercury in Scorpio and I became quite testy and cranky.  Let’s face it, both Aries and Scorpio are ruled by Mars, so communication can get downright cantankerous and hot-tempered.  The least little thing set me off that day and continues to.  And Venus in Aries, a sign of its detriment, is also known for being somewhat disagreeable. For me, maybe it’s just a case of little too much fire energy mixing with my Scorpio energy.  It reared its ugly head on March 16th too when the Scorpio moon inconjuncted Venus in Aries.  On that day I tweeted:
On March 18, 2017, Mercury will conjunct Venus in Aries.  This too can be a somewhat edgy vibe as it gives us pause to review old relationships and friends in a positive light. Venus is still retrograde, so that theme of review is still up for grabs. Mercury in Aries does give us the courage to speak up and express what is on our mind.  But Mercury and Venus conjunct still has the power to conjure up some good manners.  I am planning a birthday celebratory luncheon with a friend and plan to have a good time and behave myself.
The Sun enters the sign of Aries on March 20, 2017 at 6:29 a.m. and is also known as the Spring Equinox or the first day of Spring.  For many of us on the east coast of the United States, that may not provide much comfort given the recent nor’easter storm we just experienced this past week.

But before everyone thinks that I hate the sign of Aries, let me set the record straight.  Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it is only fitting that it be associated with the season of spring.  The symbol for Aries is the ram, and it has many positive qualities.  Aries is active, direct, courageous, aggressive, energetic and quite innovative, given that it is a cardinal sign.  Cardinal signs are movers and shakers, no doubt about it.  Aries is the perfect sign to initiate new projects and is a born entrepreneur.  If you want a fresh start, count on an Aries to give it to you because blazing new trails is in their astrological DNA.  Aries is the cardinal sign ruled by Mars, so it goes with the territory that it can at times be impulsive, impatient and possess a sharp temper and quick fuse.   One really positive thing about that sharp temper is that it does not have a tendency to hold grudges.  An Aries temper may blow hot, but it blows over quickly.  It is definitely not in the same league as Scorpio, whose temper simmers, stuffs their feelings and holds grudges big-time.  So on many levels, I am very grateful for that Aries energy emerging and literally giving us a breath of fresh air. 

And don’t forget that Venus is still retrograde in Aries.  It remains in Aries until April 4. 2017 when it slides back into its sign of exaltation, Pisces. But Venus re-enters Aries on April 29, 2017 in direct motion until June 6, 2017.  So Venus has an extended tour in the sign of Aries this year.  It started in my 5th house and will enter my 6th house on May 23, 2017.  If you are curious as to how this Venus retrograde transit is impacting you, please consider purchasing my Venus Retrograde special for only $25.  Just email met at to request it.

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 New Year, especially a Universal Year 1, is a marvelous time to navigate a new direction in your life that will fulfill you and your soul’s purpose. 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 take a peek at the eclipses of 2017. We recently experienced the February eclipses, but the August eclipses promise to be heavy hitters.  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.

Please feel free to learn more about this wonderful organization 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.

I also began seeing clients on Sunday afternoons in Coolidge Corner, Brookline for Reiki treatments on February 5, 2017.  I actually signed the paperwork on the office sublet on January 27th, the day of the new moon in Aquarius, and when I opened for business on February 5th, Venus was in Aries in my 6th house.  Talk about working that entrepreneurial spirit!   You can learn more about my expanded practice, including the hours and address at:

I have also launched an 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:
