Neptune Stations Direct and a Sagittarian Love Fest

Neptune is stationing direct in 13 degrees of Pisces on November 24, 2018 after having been retrograde since June 18, 2018 but Neptune direct is not quite the blessing of having Mercury direct.  When Neptune is retrograde, we find it harder to escape reality as many things become painfully clear to us.  Of course, a planet’s strength is always enhanced when it makes a station, either direct or retrograde.

Neptune direct is rife with themes of deception and denial because it has a way of encouraging us to live in denial as we choose fantasy over reality.  Don’t forget that Neptune is the planet associated with imagination, dreams and delusions. When Neptune is direct, it can enable us to go too far and delude ourselves into doing the wrong things, such as staying in relationships or jobs that are toxic for us.

But while Neptune is associated with deception and denial, it is also associated with idealism, compassion, imagination and spirituality.  Every cloud has a silver lining, so to speak and Neptune is indeed a cloudy planet.  The best use of Neptune being direct is to take the necessary steps to make our dreams a reality.

I have to confess that I am heavily impacted by this Neptune station.  Neptune is squaring my Gemini moon in my 8th house and trining my Saturn in Scorpio in my 1st house.  It could definitely be an emotionally challenging time with that square to my moon and even though Neptune is trining my Saturn, I’m still not totally sold on its benefits.  These two planets are not actually the most compatible playmates. I have Neptune in Libra in my 1st house as well as Saturn in Scorpio at the end of my 1st house.  I have always felt like this placement has existed as a system of checks and balances for me.  Saturn in the 1st house has always given me a sense of responsibility and a reserved manner which probably offsets that 1st house Neptune conjunct my ascendant that makes me so sensitive to others and contributing to my empathic nature.

There is a party going on with Jupiter, Mercury and the sun all in Sagittarius.  On November 19, 2018, Mars in 2 degrees of Pisces squared Jupiter in Sagittarius, inspiring me to tweet:
But the Sagittarian love fest really begins on November 26, 2018 when the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury start the hugs and kisses.  On November 26, 2018 the sun and Jupiter are conjunct in 3 degrees of Sagittarius.  This aspect will promote a sense of happiness, optimism, well-being and expansion.  The only potential drawback to that day is the fact that Mercury in 6 degrees of Sagittarius will be forming a challenging square to Mars in 6 degrees of Pisces, which can result in sharp tongues wagging.

All is good on the next day, November 27th, however when Mercury in 4 degrees of Sagittarius conjuncts Jupiter in 4 degrees of Sagittarius.  This aspect can make it very easy to make up for any transgressions that occurred on the previous day when Mercury was squaring Mars in Pisces.  Adding to the mix is the fact that the Sun and Mercury are conjunct in 4 degrees of Sagittarius.  This should really rejuvenate our communications.  It’s really nice to see these three planets playing so nicely in the astrological sandbox and will hopefully bring more light and hope after a difficult few months.

If you are curious as to how all of these planetary changes will be affecting you, please consider getting an astrological reading.  I am also offering short telephone astrology consultations for 15 minutes or 30 minutes which are available for purchase on the Services Offered page of my site. These are extremely affordable at the cost of $25 or $35 and would make a great holiday gift. I even offer the option of tarot readings. 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:
