Fire Energy Rules with Mars in SagittariusTrining Uranus and Mercury and Venus in Aries

The month of March 2018 may be starting out in the sun sign of Pisces, but it certainly has very fire like vibe with all of the planets in Aries and Mars in Sagittarius.  On March 6th, both Mercury and Venus entered the sign of Aries, inspiring me to tweet:
Mercury entered Aries first, beating Venus out by about 16 hours.  And Mercury is going to spend a long time in Aries, because we have a Mercury retrograde coming on March 22, 2018.  It will station retrograde in 16 degrees of Aries on that day, station direct in 4 degrees of Aries on April 15, 2018 and finally leave Aries on May 4, 2018.  And don’t forget that Mercury is entering its retrograde shadow on March 9, 2018 and won’t clear it until May 3, 2018.  So if you’re feeling those Mercury retrograde vibes, you’re not imagining them.

But how is communication going to change with Mercury in Aries?  Mercury in Aries is nothing if not direct and it will definitely be a time of saying what you mean in a totally honest manner.  And that manner could be blunt, not all vague and sugar-coated like Mercury in Pisces.  Our decisions could be made rather impulsively during this extended transit of Mercury in Pisces. Action is a key word with Mercury in Aries.

Venus will be in Aries from March 6 through March 30, 2018.  Venus has departed its sign of exaltation in Pisces for one of its signs of detriment.  Venus is considered to be in detriment in Aries and Scorpio and in fall in Virgo. When Venus is transiting the sign of Aries, relationships can happen fast because instant gratification is a strong theme.  Aries is a cardinal fire sign and is all about initiating what I want and I want it now!  Aries is not known for its patience either. Venus also rules money, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself tempted to indulge in some impulse purchases during its transit.  Venus in Aries will form a challenging square to Saturn in Capricorn on March 13, 2018, so don’t be surprised if relationships or finances face some bumps on that day.

But on March 11, 2018, when Daylight Savings Time begins, we also have a powerful aspect with Mars in Sagittarius trining Uranus in Aries. They are exact in 26 degrees of their respective signs.  Mars in Sagittarius loves action while Uranus in Aries loves change.  This is a powerhouse combo of action and desire supporting change.  I am sure that we will all have a strong desire for independence on that day and an inclination to fight for what we believe in.  We won’t be afraid to take risks that day either.  It will be a perfect day to be open to new and unusual opportunities and break out of your comfort zone.  Just be mindful that Mercury in Aries will be squaring Saturn in Capricorn that day, so there could be a real sense of being tested in terms of getting new ventures launched.

As for me personally, this has been an incredibly testing time because I have lost power twice during the past week due to storms.  I am also experiencing the joys of Pluto transiting my 4th house.  Pluto entered my 4th house in late January and it is really shaking things up.  I’m hoping for calmer weather soon.

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:
