Uranus Creates More Upheavals and Mars Moves into Leo

Uranus in Aries has been stirring the astrological pot even after that intense full moon in Capricorn on July 9th.  The moon moved into Aquarius on July 10th, which was a huge relief with its airy detached quality.  But on July it sextiled Uranus in Aries, inspiring me to tweet:
This was an easygoing, pleasant aspect for Uranus.  But the big guns start firing on Uranus on July 17, 2017 when Mars in 27 degrees of Cancer squares Uranus in 28 degrees of Aries.  This aspect is bound to be highly emotional, unpredictable and leave us feeling even more on the edge than many of us already are. It may very well trigger an event that could help us release negative feelings.  Mars squaring Uranus has themes of rebellion against authority and an urge to break free from restrictions.  With both of these planets in cardinal signs, there will be a strong impetus to take some kind of action.  And Mars squaring Uranus has an accident prone quality about it, so please be careful on that day.  Transiting Mars will be conjunct my natal Uranus and Jupiter in the 10th house, which has me feeling a little anxious about this aspect.

On July 20, 2017, the Sun in 28 degrees of Cancer will be squaring Uranus in 28 degrees of Aries.  This is the second Sun/Uranus square aspect of 2017.  The first one occurred on January 10, 2017 with the sun and Uranus in 20 degrees of Capricorn and Aries.  What was shaking back then?  With a Cancer sun squaring Uranus in Aries, nervous tension is a given and there can be angry outbursts.  Uncertainty will prevail.  Intuitively I sense that the best way to deal with this highly erratic energy is to be flexible and as proactive as possible about positive change.

But about 12 hours before the sun squares Uranus on July 20th, Mars moves into Leo for the next six weeks until September 5, 2017.  This should provide a welcome relief from the uber-emotional energy of Mars in Cancer.  Mars in Cancer is inclined to be defensive and passive aggressive and its role in the recent Capricorn full moon (it was squaring Jupiter in Libra) has taken its toll on many relationships.  Mars in Leo will roar in like its symbolic lion, helping us to act more assertively and directly.  Mars in Leo is all about striving to achieve and actively seeks out passion.  When Mars is in Leo energy will be expended on entertainment, theater, fine dining and spending money.  We want to get out and party after the home centered energy of Mars in Cancer.  The only things we need to be mindful of when Mars is in Leo is a slight tendency to act in a self-centered manner and some potential for dangers to children.  Children can be more susceptible to cuts, burns and accidents when Mars is transiting Leo.  So keep a close eye on the kids and enjoy the creative, fun-loving energy of Mars in Leo.  It’s a nice way to complete the summer.

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 by 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 August 2017 eclipses. The August eclipses promise to be heavy hitters because they will occur in the signs of nodes, Leo and Aquarius.    My site also offers 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.

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.  I am also offering Reiki treatments in the Coolidge Corner section of Brookline on Sunday afternoons.

But the big news is that I have created and launched a new website devoted exclusively to my Reiki practice. Please feel free to check it out at:

I was also featured in the July 3rd edition of Boston Voyager, an online publication that runs a section called Inspiring Stories about local entrepreneurs on its home page.  The Scorpio moon was trining the Cancer sun and Neptune in Pisces on that day, so my story certainly debuted under fitting aspects.  Please feel free to check it out:

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:

The August eclipses are coming and I am offering an Eclipse Special reading to give you a personalized interpretation of how both the lunar and solar eclipse will affect you.  You can get a heads up on these game changers by purchasing this reading at:
