Saturn Trining Uranus Helps Organize the Revolution and New Moon in Gemini Spreads the Word

Change and transition are in the air.  But we are indeed fortunate that Saturn and Uranus are playing nice in the sandbox together for the second of three flowing, historic trines.  The first trine occurred on December 24, 2016 when a direct Saturn in 20 degrees of Sagittarius trined a retrograde Uranus in 20 degrees of Aries.  Today, on May 19, 2017 we are experiencing benefits of the second trine with a retrograde Saturn in 26 degrees of Sagittarius trining a direct Uranus in 26 degrees of Aries.  The final trine aspect occurs on November 11, 2017 with a direct Saturn in 25 degrees of Sagittarius trining a retrograde Uranus in 25 degrees.

While Saturn has a reputation for adhering to structure and the status quo, it is definitely no slouch in the organization department.  This is the key piece and most delightful part of this aspect.  Yes, we all know that Uranus in Aries has been wreaking havoc and instigating change for the past few years.  But when these two heavy duty planetary hitters who are not known for their camaraderie or compatibility join forces and work together, it is possible to have an organized revolution.  No one disputes the fact that the world is in a period of transition, but with Saturn actually helping and not hindering the process of change, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  Saturn trining Uranus can help restore order out of chaos because it allows us to implement change in a calmer, more orderly fashion with meticulousness and more patience. 

Both Saturn and Uranus are in fire signs and fire is renowned for its courage and ability to see difficult situations through to the end.  We get an added bonus from the north node in 28 degrees of Leo, which forms a grand fire trine with Saturn and Uranus.  How sweet is that!  Remember that the lion is the symbol for Leo, and I think you will agree that Leo is a fierce warrior. The north node in Leo is pushing us to be more creative and courageous in fulfilling our destiny.  It is also functioning on a collective level these days by assisting Saturn and Uranus to change old structures and systems that are no longer serving our highest good.

The Resistance movement against President Donald Trump is a perfect example of all this fire energy in motion.  The north node in 28 degrees of Leo was in his 12th house conjunct his 29 degree Leo ascendant when former FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel to oversee the investigation between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials on May 17th.  When the north node entered Leo on May 10th it conjuncted his ascendant and he fired FBI director James Comey on May 9th.  I dare say things will get really interesting when the north node is in 26 degrees of Leo exactly conjunct his Mars in Leo in June 2017.  I’m sure he is feeling the effects already in light of his recent comments regarding the investigation being a “witch hunt.” But I also think that Robert Mueller is a perfect example of Saturn in action trining Uranus.  Robert Mueller is unilaterally respected for his knowledge, experience and integrity.  He has been described as “utterly incorruptible” and is a perfect symbol for the Saturn figure in this ongoing drama.  He will be thorough and meticulous in his investigation and leave no stone unturned.  The truth will be revealed. What more can we ask for? 

On May 20, 2017, the sun enters Gemini and we have a new moon in 5 degrees of Gemini on May 25, 2017.  Gemini is an air sign that loves to disseminate information and this upcoming new moon will be no exception.  My natal moon is in Gemini and I am very comfortable with its frenetic energy level. Mars is also in Gemini, so the vibe will definitely be breezy, creative and communication will be highly emphasized.  The new moon should feature a veritable birthing process of new ideas.  Gemini loves to share ideas, so this should be a very social new moon and very newsworthy. 

On May 25, 2017, the day of the new moon in Gemini, we also have a cardinal T-square aspect featuring Pluto in 19 degrees of Capricorn as the focal planet.  Pluto in Capricorn squares Venus in 19 degrees of Aries and Jupiter in 14 degrees of Libra. With Pluto squaring both Jupiter and Venus, who are opposing each other, it should be an interesting day. A T-square stimulates drive and courage, but it can also generate tension and conflict.  It could have on impact on interpersonal relationships as well, because Pluto is also conjunct Juno in 17 degrees of Capricorn.  Juno is frequently referred to as the “marriage asteroid.” 

If you are curious as to how these astrological changes are impacting you 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 next set of eclipses in 2017. The August eclipses promise to be heavy hitters. And they will occur in the signs of nodes,   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 with 2017 being a Universal Year 1, this 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 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.

Additionally, I 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:
