A Healing New Moon in Pisces and Mars Enters Capricorn

Save the date of March 17, 2018 as a key player in the astrological scene of 2018. Yes, it is St. Patrick’s Day, but it also features a powerfully healing new moon in Pisces and a change of signs for Mars.

The new moon in 26 degrees of Pisces on March 17, 2018 marks the end of the astrological year and holds enormous healing potential.  Pisces is a water sign and this new moon will be very emotional, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing.  When the moon entered Pisces on March 15, 2018, I tweeted:
This new moon in Pisces is conjunct Chiron in 28 degrees of Pisces and that in itself is the key to the tremendous healing power of this new moon. The themes of this new moon include acceptance, forgiveness, surrender, release, compassion, humility and letting go of the ego’s need to be right as we plant the seeds for the future. 

Jupiter in 23 degrees of Scorpio is forming a favorable trine to this new moon and Chiron in Pisces This is facilitating that healing energy by providing us the opportunity to dig deep to expose our wounds so that they can heal.

But this new moon is also on the receiving end of an angry square from Mars in 29 degrees of Sagittarius.  How is this going to play out?  We may have to deal with some arguments or fights and conflicts may expose old wounds that need to be healed.  There could be an uncomfortable decision or action that needs to be taken.  Mars in Sagittarius may very well bring back the pain of that Chiron wound but Mars is also trining Uranus in 26 degrees of Aries and that beneficial aspect can deliver some unexpected opportunities and new tools for dealing with those wounds.

But the angry square from Mars to the new moon and Chiron is short-lived because four hours after the new moon Mars enters the sign of its exaltation in Capricorn, where it resides until May 16, 2018.  Mars is exalted in Capricorn because it is disciplined, focused, deliberate and persistent energy that helps us contemplate the future and its consequences before it takes action.  Its energy is reliable and steady, like the goat symbol of Capricorn.

‘When Mars is in Capricorn we will be a lot slower to anger than Mars in Sagittarius, but we may find ourselves becoming very cold or rigid if we are frustrated.  Mars in Capricorn will also be conjunct Saturn in 8 degrees of Capricorn on April 2, 2018, which will be a marvelous opportunity to act on creating some new structures in our lives.  It will actually be conjunct my north node in my 3rd house on that day, which should prove to be quite interesting.  And on April 26, 2018, Mars will be conjunct Pluto in 21 degrees of Capricorn, which is another harbinger for major change and transformation.  This conjunction occurs in my natal 4th house and I have certainly felt the effects of Pluto ever since it entered my 4th house in January 2018.

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:
