Mars Enters Libra, the Sun Enters Scorpio and Jupiter and the Sun Conjunct in Scorpio

Brace yourself, everyone because life is about to get a lot more interesting and intense.  I know, we are just coming off the heels of a volatile new moon in Libra that opposed Uranus in Aries, but there is much more drama to come.

On October 22, 2017, Mars enters the sign of Libra until December 9, 2017 and it will not be a happy camper there.  Mars is technically in the sign of detriment while transiting Libra.  Let’s face it, Mars is frustrated in Libra because the inherent nature of Mars is to be impulsive, urgent and it likes to act in a flashy manner.  This is why Mars rules Aries and is perfectly at home there.  Mars in Libra likes to win arguments with style and tends to trigger a lot of passive-aggressive energy. 

Mars in Libra is prone to vacillation and has a hard time making decisions.  Stalemate situations are not uncommon when Mars is in Libra.  There can be a lot of talk but not much action.  Mars in Libra loves to share ideas but acting on them is a whole different ball game.  There is also the potential for legal problems to arise when Mars is in Libra.  And they could be the kind that take a while to resolve, given the slowed down quality of Mars in Libra.  But the positive side of Mars transiting Libra is that people may be inclined to be more peace loving and diplomatic. 

Mercury entered the sign of Scorpio on October 17, 2017, inspiring me to tweet:
On October 23, 2017 on the east coast of the United States, the sun enters the sign of Scorpio.  Okay, I confess to being biased on this score because I am a proud Scorpio and it will be officially my season and literally my time in the sun. Scorpio is definitely not a sign for lightweights and is the most intense of all the highly emotional water signs.  It is the fixed water sign and the phrase “still waters run deep” is an accurate description for Scorpio.  Scorpio may have an icy exterior, but there is a deep reserve of feelings lying beneath. 
Scorpio is no stranger to extremes of emotion.  They have a hard time finding a middle ground and it has been frequently said that you either love or hate a Scorpio. They are very loyal to their friends, but if you cross a Scorpio, you couldn’t ask for a worse enemy. Vindictiveness is one of their least attractive qualities, right there along with jealousy and manipulativeness. 

When the sun is transiting Scorpio, desire, intensity and strong will be front and center.  Yes, Scorpio is dark, intense, passionate (it is aka the sex sign) and complex but the sun transiting the sign of Scorpio also has the potential to be the most healing and transformative time of the year.  Transformation is an integral part of the Scorpio nature. And with the sun in Scorpio we have the opportunity to shine a light into the shadows so that transformation can occur.  It will be a wild ride, but make the most of it.  I know that personally every year I am always stoked when the sun enters Scorpio but wind up heaving a sigh of relief when the sun enters Sagittarius in late November. That kind of intensity can only be lived through for a short amount of time.

But this year we have a special treat in store with the sun’s transit of Scorpio.  On October 26, 2017 Jupiter in 3 degrees of Scorpio conjuncts the sun.  The sun is conjunct Jupiter only once a year and it literally bestows blessings to whatever sign it falls in.  Scorpios will reap the benefits this year.  The sun conjunct Jupiter is a very positive aspect because it combines the sun’s power and will with Jupiter’s expansive quality.  Feelings of happiness, well-being and optimism will prevail.  The key word with Jupiter is expansion and it can occur in all areas of life, especially in relationships and wealth.  Scorpio is about intimate relationships and other people’s money, so when Jupiter touches it favorably, we can experience expansion and growth in these areas of life.  The only downside with this aspect is a tendency to be greedy or boastful.  If we are mindful of these potential pitfalls, we should have an amazing day,  

If you are curious as to how Jupiter, Mercury and the sun in Scorpio will be affecting you, please consider getting an astrological reading.  A transit reading might be just what you need right now to make the most of Jupiter in Scorpio.  Jupiter transits are all about taking advantage of opportunities and if you snooze you lose with Jupiter.  You have to be aware and strike while the iron is hot. The Services Offered page of my site describes the menu of services that I offer. There is something for everyone.

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:

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:
