Mercury in Aquarius and an Inspiring Saturn Neptune Sextile

Now that the dust has settled somewhat from the lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, we can focus on some astrological energy that is a little more peaceful and inspiring.

On January 24, 2019, Mercury entered the sign of Aquarius, where it will stay until February 10, 2019.  On that day I tweeted:
Mercury transiting through the sign of Aquarius is a whole different ballgame than Mercury in Capricorn.  It’s also joining the sun in Aquarius, which is giving us a nice break from all of the heavy Capricorn energy that we have been experiencing all month.  Okay, we are in it for the long haul with Saturn, Pluto and the south node in Capricorn, but we’ll take our breaks when we can get them.

Mercury in Aquarius is hungry for knowledge and open to new ideas as we are more inclined to think outside of the box.  Spontaneous communication and thought patterns will prevail.  Flashes of inspiration can come from seemingly left field, especially since Aquarius is ruled by Uranus.  We could also find that we have a more detached approach to matters.  Mercury in Aquarius can bring about some downright weird, offbeat and eccentric ideas.  A major difference between Mercury in Capricorn and Mercury in Aquarius to remember is that Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which tends to preserve the structures of the past while Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which is very future oriented.  So this is a good time for making plans for the future.  On January 29, 2019 the Sun and Mercury will be conjunct in 8 degrees of Aquarius.  This will be a very favorable aspect for communications and we will probably feel a strong need to share our ideas with others.

But the conundrum is that since Aquarius is a fixed air sign we may find ourselves stubbornly clinging to our beliefs and it may be more difficult to persuade others to change their minds during this transit of Mercury in Aquarius.  Keep that in mind.

The month of January ends on a very inspiring note with the first of three sextiles involving Saturn in Capricorn to Neptune in Pisces. We haven’t experienced this aspect since 1996, so it should be interesting.  On January 29, 2019 both Saturn and Neptune will be direct in 14 degrees of their respective signs.  The major theme of a Saturn Neptune sextile is to bring material gain from spiritual pursuits.  This means that it’s possible to make your dreams come true with hard work, diligence and a sensible, idealistic approach.  It’s the perfect combination of understanding your limitations, represented by Saturn while adopting a more optimistic attitude that Neptune represents.

The bottom line is that spiritual wisdom can deliver the patience and self-discipline to sacrifice short-term gratification for long term success.  This aspect will be an opportunity to overcome inner and outer boundaries with kindness, gentleness and spirituality.  My Gemini moon is in 14 degrees and I am still under the influence of an ongoing transit of Neptune squaring my moon, so I’m sure I will feel this aspect.

The Saturn Neptune sextile will also be exact on June 27, 2019 when both planets are in 18 degrees of their respective signs of Capricorn and Pisces.  Saturn will be retrograde on the second hit.  The third and final date of this aspect is November 8, 2019 in 16 degrees.  Saturn will be direct this time but Neptune will be retrograde.

If you are curious as to how all of these planetary changes will be affecting you, please consider getting an astrological reading.  I am now 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.  In the spirit of utilizing the energy of the January 5th solar eclipse in my 3rd house, I am starting to use FaceTime for my readings and have installed the Google Duo app on my phone for the benefit of my Android clients. So if you want to see me in addition to talking to me, I am giving you the choice to do so. I even offer the option of tarot readings. There is something for everyone and my menu of services can accommodate any budget.

Since I love to talk astrology and believe in making it more available to everyone, I am now offering pay by the minute astrology readings through Click 4Advisor.  Check it out 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:
