The Truth Comes out with a Full Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury Enters Gemini

The upcoming full moon in Sagittarius will clearly demonstrate that Gemini season is in full swing, as I pointed out in my tweet of May 20, 2018:
Gemini is the sign associated with communication, since it is ruled by Mercury and when the full moon in 8 degrees of Sagittarius opposes the Gemini sun on May 29, 2018, the truth about many matters may emerge.  Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, and is associated with courage, wisdom, adventure and higher consciousness.  This full moon has the potential to be very positive with a host of favorable aspects in play that day and a strong theme of surging forward.  The only fly in the ointment is a slight tendency for judgmentalism, opinionated views and an inclination to be somewhat blunt in communications. And Mercury enters the sign of Gemini at 7:49 p.m. on May 29th to boot.

What is going on astrologically on May 29th?  We have not one, but two Grand Trines happening that day.  There is a grand trine in water featuring Jupiter in 15 degrees of Scorpio, Neptune in 16 degrees of Pisces and Venus in 11 degrees of Cancer.  On May 25, 2018 Jupiter in Scorpio trined Neptune in Pisces, which was an extremely positive aspect that favors luck, generosity and compassion.  We are fortunate enough to get another hit of this aspect on August 19, 2018.  But with Venus joining the party on the day of a full moon in Sagittarius to form a grand water trine, we are truly blessed with inspirational and creative energy.  A grand water trine ensures that emotion, sensitivity and intuition will be very strong on this full moon.

We also have a grand fire trine involving the moon in 8 degrees of Sagittarius, Chiron in 1 degree of Aries and the north node in 7 degrees of Leo.  Full moons represent a time of culmination and a big part of this may be letting go of old emotional wounds from the past (represented by Chiron, the Wounded Healer) in order to move forward.  The north node in Leo is gives us the courage to tackle those wounds and press on our path.  The north node inherently wants to go forth and the full moon’s supportive sextile to the south node in 7 degrees of Aquarius gives it another boost to release that past karmic baggage. A grand fire trine is creative, inspirational, self-expressive and spontaneous. 

The combined efforts of these two grand trines supplies the energy to really communicate about long-standing issues and release them once and for all as we strive to move forward.  These two grand trines working together can be extremely beneficial.  The full moon is also forming a supportive sextile to Mars in 4 degrees of Aquarius, providing the impetus to act on those desires for growth and change.

The only other potential alarming factor on this full moon is the influence of the ongoing Mars in Aquarius square to Uranus in Taurus.  I certainly hope that there are no more volcanoes erupting, but Mars squaring Uranus in Taurus, the sign of the earth, is a clear manifestation of that kind of energy.  Mars squaring Uranus has a rebellious quality and there is tendency to act rashly without regard for the consequences.  We could be hearing some news about disruption and violence on this full moon, but that is not set in stone.  I’m just saying don’t be surprised if that kind of news emerges.

Mercury is entering its home sign of Gemini on May 29th and true to its mercurial nature, it will be a brief transit, only lasting until June 12, 2018.  Mercury in Gemini is communicative, curious and sociable.  Don’t be surprised if your social life speeds up considerably while both the sun and Mercury are in Gemini.  Mercury in Gemini is not the best time to be focused on a long-term goal, as we are more inclined to dabble in superficial knowledge about a variety of subjects and are easily distracted.  It does give us more mental flexibility and information will flow more quickly, which could lead to new perspectives. Keeping an open mind is the key to reaping the rewards of Mercury in Gemini.

If you are curious as to how all of the planetary changes, including eclipses, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn retrograde, Jupiter in Scorpio, Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus 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 3, 2017 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:

I have also 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:
