A Relationship Oriented Full Moon in Libra

Everyone knows that Libra is the astrological sign most associated with relationships, so be prepared for some major relationship shakeups to occur on the full blue moon in 10 degrees of Libra on March 31, 2018.  This is the second full moon in March (the first occurred on March 1, 2018 in 11 degrees of Virgo) giving it the distinction of a blue moon.

It would be a grave understatement to say that a lot can happen with this full moon in Libra.  A full moon in Libra can make or break relationships and reveal some long hidden secrets.  It can also be a time of release in that if a relationship is not working for you, it may be time to let go.  And since Libra is so disposed to considering the other person, it might be a time to reclaim your power in a relationship and release behavior that is not getting your needs met.  The positive side of Libra is that it involves issues of equality, fairness and justice too.  So it can be a time to set the record straight.

A key piece of this full moon is that there are eight planets in cardinal signs and cardinal signs love action, no question about it.  The Sun, Mercury, Uranus and Eris are in Aries, the moon is in Libra and Saturn, Pluto and Mars are in Capricorn.  Venus moves into Taurus, where it is eminently more comfortable on March 31st, but Venus in Aries delivered its own share of drama, especially on March 28th when it conjuncted Uranus in Aries.  On that day I tweeted:
Mercury in Aries is retrograde and features prominently in this full moon as well.  It is opposing the full moon and so we may experience difficulty in understanding our feelings and communicating them.  It is also forming a square to Mars in 7 degrees of Capricorn, which can lead to short tempers, disagreements, and feelings of hostility.  Additionally, it squares Saturn in 8 degrees of Capricorn, which has a way of creating distance and separation in relationships.

Mars and Saturn are moving to an exact conjunction in 8 degrees of Capricorn on April 2, 2018 so they are very active players with their squares to this full moon in 10 degrees of Libra.  Squares are renowned for creating tension.  Think about where this full moon in Libra is falling in your chart and where the Mars/Saturn conjunction in Capricorn happens.  The full moon will be in my 12th house widely conjunct my Libra ascendant and the Mars/Saturn conjunction will be conjunct my north node in the third house.  I doubt that it will be a quiet time for me.  I can guarantee anyone with cardinal planets (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) in these degrees will experience major changes.

Mars in Capricorn is more assertive, focused, impulsive and impetuous during this full moon.  Its square to the sun in Aries and moon in Libra will contain a theme of what about my needs. The Libra full moon squaring Mars in Capricorn will allow anger to come to the surface, especially in relationships with women. The full moon squaring Saturn in Capricorn will remind us of past relationships failures and losses.  It could also trigger emotional coldness, nagging and bullying. Negative thinking, feelings of loneliness, worry and fears are also part of this package.   But it can also be a time to take responsibility (a major Saturn theme) for our actions by releasing those fears and transforming our lives.  Issues of power are bound to come up for review in relationships during this full moon and if we have been too accommodating to others by giving our power away, this is time to transform that inequality and restore the balance to relationships.

When Mars conjuncts Saturn on April 2, 2018, it can trigger our darkest desires and make us feel anger, resentment and a strong desire for revenge.  Mars Saturn aspects are very difficult and challenging because while Mars is all about action, Saturn tends to put the brakes on the action.  And this full moon is rife with a plethora of planets in cardinal signs, which crave action.  I come by this knowledge through a natal Mars Saturn square in my own chart.  All I can tell you about this Mars Saturn conjunction is to be mindful of destructive actions on your part or from others. 

But before I leave everyone in abject terror of this full moon, I do want to share a glimmer of hope with one beautiful, positive aspect occurring on that day.  Jupiter in 22 degrees of Scorpio is forming a supportive sextile with Pluto in 21 degrees of Capricorn.  This aspect holds the promise of success through positive change and potential for spiritual growth.  Use this aspect wisely to transform the more negative aspects of this full moon into positive outcomes.

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:
