The Sun Enters Libra, Mars Opposes Neptune and Jupiter Opposes Uranus Take 3

Happy Fall Equinox!  The sun is entering the air sign of Libra at 4:02 pm on September 22, 2017, officially kicking off the fall season.  But many of us may have begun to feel the Libra vibe on September 20, 2017, when the moon entered Libra, prompting me to tweet:

There is a big energy difference between the sun in Virgo and the sun in Libra.  The sun in Virgo is all business, down to earth (it is after all, an earth sign), very practical and analytical.  Virgo likes to focus on service to others and health. When the sun enters Libra, we are in for a month when the focus shifts to finding balance and harmony through relationships with others and through art.  It is a very social air sign that is the ultimate people pleaser.  Libra doesn’t like to rock the boat and there can be problems with decision making while the sun is transiting Libra.  Libra is the sign representing the scales of justice and it tends to weigh all factors very carefully before rendering a decision. This is where the notorious quality of Libra indecisiveness comes into play.  I’m sure all of know at least one Libra who feels the need to ask at least 10 people what they think before making a decision.

But Libra at its best can be tactful, stylish, tolerant and sociable.  Polite and cooperative are also accurate descriptions of positive Libra traits.  Just be mindful that the shadow side of Libra, in addition to its indecisiveness, includes a self-serving nature, passive aggressive behavior and a tendency towards being superficial.

The Libra energy will manifest in whatever house of your chart it happens to be transiting.  For me, it starts in my 12th house and on October 9th, it enters my 1st house.  Needless to say, I am counting the days for the 1st house transit.  Right now I am dealing with my subconscious, letting go and themes of retreat, regeneration and rest are paramount. Having the sun transit the 1st house is a fun time – it is time to be in the spotlight and put the focus on yourself.  It is me time and I plan on making the most of it.  If you are curious as to where this is happening in your chart, please consider getting an astrological reading with me.  I offer three and six month transit readings which can be very informative and really give you a heads up on what is in store for you in the coming months.

On September 24, 2017, Mars in Virgo will be opposing Neptune in Pisces in 12 degrees of their respective signs.  I won’t sugarcoat it; this can be one challenging transit.  It can be accompanies by feelings of discouragement, weakness and inadequacy. It can also trigger issues with addiction and substance abuse. The challenge of this transit is to act with compassion and with a mind towards oneness while being mindful of the fact that what you resist persists.  Resistance can also mean blocking change on an individual and global level as we feel stuck and literally resist the call to move forward.  And Neptune’s influence can also make this a prime time for con artists and scammers to emerge while many of us may be dealing with our own self-deception.  This is not an optimal time to be assertive in career matters because disappointment may result.

All is not gloom and doom with this Mars/Neptune aspect, however, Remember that Mars is not terribly comfortable in Virgo, while Neptune has the home court advantage because Neptune is in its home sign of Pisces.  Neptune in Pisces has the power to link us to universal truth, wisdom and intuition to guide us.  It’s a pretty potent package and it can overrule Mars.  The trick of surviving and prospering with this transit is to regard it as a mirror for deceptions and hidden agendas.  Pay attention to your dreams and intuition at this time,

On September 28, 2017, the same day that Pluto stations direct in 16 degrees of Capricorn, we have the third and final Jupiter in Libra opposition to Uranus in Aries.  The first opposition occurred on December 27, 2016 in 20 degrees when both planets were direct, and the second opposition occurred on March 7, 2017 in 22 degrees when Jupiter was retrograde.  This time it will occur in 27 degrees and Uranus is retrograde.  Uranus in Aries can be very tough and a real game changer, while Jupiter in Libra is trying to balance both sides and make everything work.  This aspect has a strong theme of an increased need for personal freedom and excitement.  Many of us will experience a strong urge to rebel against whatever is holding us back from having fun.  Jupiter/Uranus contacts are very unpredictable and your luck can change in the blink of an eye.  I have a natal Jupiter/Uranus conjunction myself and I can attest to this fact.  This aspect will also be hitting my Neptune in 26 degrees of Libra, so I know that I will be in its crossfire.  Perhaps the best way to deal with the sense of urgency and need for change that this transit inspires is to consider a change in beliefs.

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:
