Mercury and Venus Change Signs While Saturn Stations Retrograde

We are coming off the heels of a powerful new moon in Aries this week that conjuncted retrograde Venus in Aries.  On that day I tweeted:

But Venus will not remain in Aries much longer.  It is still retrograde and will re-enter the sign of Pisces, where it is exalted, on April 2, 2017.  But before Venus changes signs, Mercury enters Taurus on March 31, 2017 and the communication vibe becomes slower, steadier and more grounded. 

Mercury doesn’t’ stay in Taurus very long, either, because it will be stationing retrograde in 4 degrees of Taurus on April 9, 2017. It will re-enter Aries on April 20, 2017 and station direct in 24 degrees of Aries on May 3, 2017.  Further complicating this Mercury retrograde is the fact that during the last week of April and the first two weeks of May, Mercury will be closely aligned by conjunction with Uranus in Aries.  What can we expect from this aspect? Nervous energy will run amok, rebellious attitudes will prevail and there will be lots of direct communication and innovative thinking. But Mercury will return to Taurus on May 17, 2017 and we will probably experience more solid footing in communication.
The retrograde Venus in Pisces transit should be very interesting and illuminating.  It will undoubtedly bring up some old wounds for healing.  The themes of Venus in Pisces are all about unconditional love, compassion and forgiveness.  We literally getting one last shot at letting go and making peace before Venus re-enters Aries on April 28, 2017.  Use this time wisely to make whatever compromises are necessary to bring that healing into your life.

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 me at to request it.

On April 6. 2017, Saturn will station retrograde in 27 degrees of Sagittarius until August 25, 2017 when it stations direct in 21 degrees of Sagittarius.  A Saturn retrograde transit is much longer and more complicated than either Venus or Mercury retrograde.  Saturn retrograde bears the themes of limitations, restrictions, anxiety and fear.  Since Saturn literally screams responsibility, our past karma will come into play.  If we have been responsible and good citizens, we just might get some rewards during this transit.

Saturn also brings delays and this is a bitter pill for many of us to swallow.  Frustrations may mount as we feel our progress is being halted to a crashing stop.  The main thing to remember is that delays are actually for our benefit.  I know, easier said than done.  There may be details that we have overlooked that require our attention during this transit.  Saturn retrograde forces us to flex our muscles with discipline, endurance and patience.  Patience does not come naturally to me; I have Saturn square Mars, so it is definitely not my strong suit.

The Saturn Retrograde transit starts off with a rather challenging aspect on April 8, 2017 when it squares retrograde Venus in Pisces.  Saturn squaring Venus is inherently depressing, but when both are retrograde, it can feel really discouraging.  Feelings of love and self-esteem will probably not be in abundance on this day and finances may be shaky.  Just remember that this is TEMPORARY!

If you are curious as to how these astrological changes are impacting your or 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.

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 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.

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.

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:
