Venus Enters Pisces and a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius


Venus is on course to exit the Aquarius posse of planets that includes the sun, Mercury, the south node and Juno.  I don’t mean to rant on Aquarius (some of my favorite people are Aquarians), but with Jupiter in Scorpio as well as a recent moon in Scorpio, t has been a pretty turbulent mix.  Some of my most recent tweets in the past week reflect that energy:

Venus will enter the sign of Pisces on February 10, 2018 and will stay in its sign of exaltation until March 6, 2018.  Venus in Pisces favors creative energy, compassion and forgiveness. If you have planets in any of the water signs (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio) you will definitely reap the benefits of this transit.  Venus in Pisces has the power to attract good things into our lives, especially in the areas of love and finances. As beautiful as the energy of Venus in Pisces is, there are some down sides to it. Venus in Pisces has an almost ethereal longing for something that is hard to define and almost impossible to satisfy.  And since the sign of Pisces is ruled by Neptune (where Neptune currently is), there can be a tendency towards escapism, delusion, addiction and victimization.  Borders and boundaries can get blurred. Just be aware of these potential pitfalls and channel the higher compassionate, redemptive side of Venus in Pisces and you should be fine.  Venus spends more than half of its Pisces transit in my 5th house, so I am eagerly anticipating tis transit.  It tends to fuel my creativity and generally put me in a better, more loving and compassionate mood.

But the really big astrological news in the coming week is the solar eclipse in 27 degrees of Aquarius on February 15, 2018, just one day after Valentine’s Day.  This eclipse has a lot of promising astrological energy going for it.  For starters, it will be sextiling Uranus in 25 degrees of Aries.  Eclipses always bring change and when an eclipse sextiles Uranus, it paves the way for positive change.  Sextiles support each other, which is a refreshing change from squares and oppositions.

The solar eclipse is also conjunct Mercury in 24 degrees of Aquarius.  Because a solar eclipse is like a new moon on steroids, the fact that both the sun and moon conjunct Mercury indicates that ideas and communication will be very important themes.  This eclipse also conjuncts Juno (aka the marriage asteroid) in 25 degrees of Aquarius, which further emphasizes the importance of relationships.  And the fact that it is one day after Valentine’s Day makes that a pretty sweet loving vibe.

The trickiest aspect of the solar eclipse is its square to Jupiter in 22 degrees of Scorpio.  Here we go again with that turbulent Scorpio/Aquarius energy.  Jupiter in Scorpio loves to expand whatever it touches, so it will require some discipline and moderation.  Squares to Jupiter are the least disruptive and this one is given a boost for personal growth and happiness due to the favorable, supportive sextile from Uranus in Aries.

Jupiter in 22 degrees of Scorpio will also be forming a sextile to Pluto in 20 degrees of Capricorn.  This is like the equivalent of hitting the mother lode in terms of supporting positive change, increased wealth, and personal and spiritual growth. Talk about mutual reception—Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio, which Jupiter is transiting until November 2018.  Se we have the opportunity to feel really empowered in terms of growth and expansion in our lives.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my readers, clients and Twitter followers who have reached out to me during this time of crisis regarding my husband’s health.  He is slowly making strides in his recovery and I am convinced that the prayers and healing wishes from all of you have contributed to his progress.  He still needs rehab, but he survived surgery.  This eclipse falls in his 11th house and is not nearly as challenging as the lunar eclipse of January 31st.  The eclipse opposes my Pluto in Leo in the 11th house and I am choosing to view this as a need to release any desire to control the outcome.  I know this is easier said than done.  I have been receiving a great deal of support and encouragement from friends, which I deeply appreciate.  And the opportunity to practice Reiki has provided a stream of healing that has flowed back to me during this stressful time.

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:
