Diving into Pisces Season

Mercury and the Sun are about to enter the sign of Pisces, joining Venus, Neptune and Chiron. I don’t know about you, but I am personally a bit exhausted from all of this Aquarius energy, especially the recent solar eclipse in 27 degrees of Aquarius. I know that change is inevitable, but the fact that the solar eclipse featured Uranus as a key player really added to the the theme of sudden change, as I tweeted on February 15, 2018:
Mercury enters Pisces on February 17th and the Sun enters Pisces on February 18th.  But before Mercury swims into Pisces on February 17, 2018, Mars in 13 degrees of Sagittarius will square Neptune in 13 degrees of Pisces, which will give us quite the double whammy in terms of the shadow side of Pisces.  Neptune rules Pisces, so this aspect will be intense. Mars squaring Neptune is a low energy aspect and it is prime time for suspicion, deceit, lies and scandals to emerge.  Laying low is probably the best course of action for dealing with the potentially devastating ramifications of this aspect. It has a strong theme of surrendering to a Higher Power and the Serenity Prayer will be very helpful.  This aspect is squaring my natal Gemini moon in the 8th house, so the theme of surrender is especially poignant.

Mercury will be in Pisces until March 6, 2018 and is considered to be in the sign of its fall. Venus may be exalted in Pisces, but Mercury not so much.  Mercury in Pisces is not strong because communication could get vague, fuzzy and nebulous. The thinking process with Mercury in Pisces is more emotional and therefore not very practical.  On the plus side, it does afford us the opportunity to access our intuition and imagination to a greater extent.  So for all you creative types, Mercury in Pisces can be very beneficial.

The Sun swims into Pisces on February 18, 2018 and there will be a marked energy shift.  Pisces is a water sign and is very emotional, so the vibe will be very different from the past month which was very frenetic and highly charged.  The major themes of the sun in Pisces are release, surrender, forgiveness and compassion.  Empathy is strong when the sun is in Pisces and selfless love abounds. A desire for daydreaming abounds and dreams, imagination, and heightened creativity flourish. But beware of the shadow side of Pisces, which involves feeling victimized, addiction or other forms of escapism.  Don’t fall into the martyr role, which is a natural fit for Pisces.  I prefer to embrace the redemptive power of Pisces and I think that is a good path to follow.

Pisces starts its transit through my 5th house and midway enters my 6th house.  So it will definitely start out on a creative high and then lend a more spiritual vibe to my daily routines, which is perfect for my Reiki work.

If you are curious as to how all of the planetary changes, including eclipses, Saturn in Capricorn and Jupiter in Scorpio will be affecting you in 2018, 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. 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:

In the spirit of the New Year, I have revised my package deals and I am now offering two options for package deals: Silver and a Tarot special for my tarot clients. Please check it out at:
