Venus Enters Cancer and the Sun Enters Gemini

I know that many of us are still reeling (hopefully in a good way) from the recent new moon in Taurus occurring on the same day as Uranus entering Taurus on May 15, 2018, when I tweeted:

But there is more movement in the astrological landscape.  On May 19, 2018, Venus enters the sign of Cancer until June 13, 2018.  Venus in Cancer is going to deliver a whole new spin on love and finances.  Don’t be surprised if you wind up feeling more nurturing and self-protective.  Home and family will be become much more important as our homes become a sanctuary.  It will be a time of nesting and some may decide to splurge on home improvements.

But Venus in Cancer can be an emotional roller coaster because of increased sensitivity and impressionability.  We can become more moody and hurt feelings could result as words can be taken too seriously and in the wrong vein. The positive side of Venus in Cancer is that we will feel more affectionate and show our love through devotion, care and concern for the well-being of others.  Since Venus rules finances as well as love, it might be a good time to buy someone you love a nice gift.  Venus in Cancer is all about what makes you feel safe and secure, so enjoy knowing that this transit is a perfect time for staying in your comfort zone.

On the following day, May 19, 2018, the Sun enters the light and airy sign of Gemini until June 21st.  This is going to change the whole energy of how we function in our daily lives and where we direct our focus.  Gemini is an air sign which is motivated by obtaining knowledge and diversity.  We are going to feel more sociable, curious, intellectual, communicative and versatile while the sun is in Gemini.  It will be a great time to meet new people and multi-tasking will be a major theme.  It is also a prime opportunity to purchase items related to communication, such as computers, cell phones, books and journals to record our thoughts and feelings.

The down side of the sun in Gemini is that we can become too scattered in trying to do too many things at once and be perceived as unreliable.  The sun in Gemini can trigger some anxiety if we over-analyze or try to do too much.  Antidotes to this anxiety include yoga, meditation or escapist television. But the perks of the sun in Gemini include favoring communication, writing and maybe being able to finish tasks that we previously started, such as spring cleaning.  Because when the sun leaves Gemini on June 21, 2018, summer will be officially here.

I’d also like to share an interesting story about my experience with the new moon in Taurus, which fell in my 8th house of joint resources.  On May 14th an astrology client emailed me to purchase another reading but said that she couldn’t find it on my site.  I checked and discovered to my horror that the link to my Services Offered on my home page was missing, so I fixed it and the client purchased a reading.  She also mentioned me in a video on her YouTube channel.  You can check it out at:

Needless to say, I am very grateful to Melanie at Whole Again 1111 because not only did she alert me to a problem with my site, which has since resulted in more views, but she referred another client to me.  So it was a financially beneficial new moon in Taurus for me.  I hope that many of you reaped some benefits from this new moon as well.

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:
