Saturn Stations Direct and Venus Moves into Leo

Well, the August eclipses are over but there is still plenty of astrological action going on. Saturn in Sagittarius played a major role in the Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017, inspiring me to tweet:
Saturn has been retrograde in Sagittarius since April 5, 2017, but on August 25, 2017, it will station direct in 21 degrees of Sagittarius to complete its transit of Sagittarius. Then Saturn enters its home sign of Capricorn on December 19, 2017.  Have you been feeling frustrated, anxious, restricted, limited and fearful for the past 4 ½ months? Blame it on Saturn Retrograde!  That is about to change because Saturn direct is giving us a green light to move forward.  Now we can actually deal with the fears and doubts that have been holding us back. How cool is that?  We may even wind up with a whole new perspective on any additional responsibilities we have had to assume in the past few months. Clearly, this will be a day of rejoicing and a cause for celebration. 

The moon is in Libra on August 25th and it forms some very favorable aspects. For starters, it conjuncts Jupiter, which is bound to put us in a social, fun loving mood to start the weekend.  It also sextiles Mars in Leo and, TA-DA, it also sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius about 4 hours after Saturn stations direct. Hallelujah! Let’s get moving forward. If the recent eclipses didn’t shake you out of any ruts, complacency, or just feeling plain stuck, this astrological combo should get you moving.  I love it when Saturn plays nice with Mars and Jupiter. And this is due in large part to that peace and harmony loving Libra moon. Jupiter in Libra sextiling Saturn in Sagittarius should be a very favorable influence for hope and faith to align. It encourages manifesting an ideal and bringing more harmony and balance into our lives.

Venus gets in the act on the following day, August 26th, when it moves into Leo. We will all notice the shift in love, values and finances when Venus transits the fun loving fire sign until September 19th.  Venus in Leo brings more drama to love and finances for starters.  Venus in Leo brings fun, indulgence and demands.  It also enhances creativity and childlike enthusiasm but it does have a flip side of temper tantrums.  Competitiveness and excessive pride can also play out while Venus is transiting Leo.  Venus in Leo will draw attention to where you shine. For me, it starts in my 10th house of career before moving into my 11th house of friends, group associations and aspirations.

Venus transiting Leo is definitely an attention craving time as we seek adoration and admiration. It is a time of taking pride in love and can be very romantic. Leo is renowned for its generosity and excess, so some may wind up buying extravagant gifts for their loved ones during its transit. If you are curious as to where you need to shine, please consider getting an astrological reading.

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:

Additionally, I 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:

I am extending my Eclipse Special reading until August 31, 2017. . It’s not too late to get your personalized eclipse reading!  You can still obtain some insight on how these game changers are impacting your life by purchasing this reading at:
