A Dreamy Sun Neptune Conjunction and Jupiter Retrograde

The first week of March 2018 features a dreamy Sun/Neptune conjunction in 13 degrees of Pisces on March 4, 2018 and Jupiter stationing retrograde in 23 degrees of Scorpio on March 8, 2018.  That’s a lot of water energy floating around, no pun intended.

What can we expect from the Sun/Neptune conjunction?  The sun conjunct Neptune in its home sign of Pisces increases our sensitivity, intuition and empathy. It helps us get in touch with our soul’s purpose and assists us in resetting our priorities.  It can be a positive or negative influence in your life.  Just remember that if you are surrounded by negative people, you may find yourself feeling depressed, drained of energy or just plain scared. Try to set some boundaries in your relationships at this time.  If nothing else, this is a marvelous time to go to the movies or indulge in some escapist literature.  On a personal level, this conjunction is squaring my Gemini moon in the 8th house, which is triggering a lot of issues about death, transformation and joint finances.

Jupiter is stationing retrograde in 23 degrees of Scorpio on March 8, 2018 and will station direct in 13 degrees of Scorpio on July 10, 2018. Jupiter retrograde is a time of spiritual introspection, and this is especially true with Jupiter in Scorpio because Jupiter rules Sagittarius, so Jupiter in Scorpio has a natural 12th house feel.  Jupiter retrograde is an optimal time to purify body and soul and a great time to detox.  It is also a great time to reassess in love and finances. Jupiter in Scorpio is all about surrendering and having faith in the universe. It can be a time of deep healing and facing our deepest fears.

Jupiter retrograde is also bound to affect our travel plans in terms of cancellations or delays.  It is also not the best time to take risks or gamble.

When Jupiter entered Scorpio back on October 10, 2017, I was initially excited and enthusiastic because I am a Scorpio.  But in the back of my mind, I was also remembering the last time Jupiter was in Scorpio in 2006 and 2007 and that was not such a good time for me.  In February 2006 Jupiter in Scorpio was conjunct my sun in my second house with a one degree orb and my husband nearly died of a pulmonary embolism after a hip replacement surgery.  In August 2006 Jupiter in Scorpio was conjunct my natal Saturn in my 1st house and my mother and brother died within eight days of each other.  In September 2006 my dog, a rescue Greyhound, suddenly became ill and had to be euthanized.  Transiting Jupiter in Scorpio was forming a three degree conjunction to my natal Saturn and a four degree conjunction to my sun.

In 2018, transiting Jupiter in Scorpio formed a conjunction to my Scorpio sun on January 29th when my husband was hospitalized for a subdural hematoma.  On February 10, 2018, another dog, also a rescue, started bleeding out from a mast cell tumor that had been operated on a few months earlier and had to be euthanized.  Transiting Jupiter was in 22 degrees of Scorpio conjunct both my sun and Venus in Scorpio in my second house.  I am wondering how all of this will play out with Jupiter retrograde because Jupiter will be on my sun again in April and May of 2018 and it will be on my Saturn in late June and July of 2018.  When Jupiter stations direct in 13 degrees of Scorpio, it will be one degree away from my natal Saturn.

In spite of the death and rebirth themes associated with the Jupiter in Scorpio transit for me, I am trying to look at the positive influence of Jupiter in Scorpio.  One of the perks this time around with Jupiter in Scorpio is that it trines Neptune in Pisces on three dates.  It trined Neptune in 11 degrees of Pisces on December 3, 2017 and will again on May 25, 2018 in 16 degrees of Pisces and its third hit will occur on August 19, 2018 in 15 degrees of Pisces.  All of these Jupiter Neptune trines favorably aspect my Scorpio sun and Saturn, so I am holding out faith that the universe will somehow provide for me.

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:
