March Roars in Like a Lion with Venus Entering Aquarius, Mercury Retrograde, a New Moon in Pisces and Uranus Entering Taurus

March 2019 is quite literally starting with a bang.  At 7:32 a.m. on March 1, 2019 Venus in 29 degrees of Capricorn is squaring Uranus in 29 degrees of Aries. This aspect promises to bring unpredictability in relationships.  If you have any planets in 0 degrees of any of the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, you may experience some sudden change, but it might be a pleasant one.  I certainly hope so because my Mercury is in 0 degrees of Scorpio.  And the effects of this square will be felt for some time because Venus is entering Aquarius at 11:45 a.m. on March 1st and Uranus will enter Taurus on March 6, 2019.

Venus will be in the fixed sign of Aquarius from March 1 through March 26, 2019.  Thankfully we have no Venus retrogrades this year!  When Venus is transiting the sign of Aquarius, relationships will take on themes of unconventionality, independence and freedom of expression.  While Aquarius is known for its ability to detach, it can just as easily bring on a sudden attraction that feels electric (like its ruling planet Uranus) and non-judgmental love.   And friendships will become very important while Venus is transiting the sign of Aquarius.  We may very well want our lover to be our best friend during this transit.

On March 5, 2019, Mercury will station retrograde in 29 degrees of Pisces.  It stations direct on March 28, 2019 in 16 degrees of Pisces.  For those of us who factor in the concept of the Mercury Retrograde shadow, we aren’t totally out of the woods until April 16, 2019 when Mercury clears its shadow in 29 degrees of Pisces.  I personally experienced the full Mercury Retrograde Shadow effect on February 25, 2019 when I was stuck on a subway train for an hour when a tree fell and no one seemed to know when it would be cleared and we could move.  You know the drill when Mercury is retrograde: expect delays in communication and transportation, try not to sign any contracts or accept a new job and refrain from buying new cars, computers and cell phones if at all possible.  All of these are ruled by Mercury.

But seriously, folks, mark your calendars for March 6, 2019.  We have two stellar events on that day.  Uranus enters the sign of Taurus at 3:26 a.m. and stays in Taurus until 2026.  Uranus briefly entered Taurus last year from May through November 2018, but this time it’s here to stay for its first extended transit since 1934-1942.  This may not be the most comfortable transit for Uranus. Uranus in Aries has brought many changes in the last seven years but since Uranus is a planet that loves to shake things up, at least that energy was compatible with the cardinal fire sign of Aries.  Not so much with the fixed earth sign of Taurus.  Taurus wants to keep things steady and is resistant to change.  There will be tension, no doubt about it.

Uranus in Taurus will undoubtedly bring about changes in the earth in terms of climate change, extremes in temperature and volcanoes and earthquakes.  In May 2018 when Uranus entered Taurus Hawaii had a volcano erupt.  But Uranus in Taurus could also see changes in food production and agriculture and there may be more of an emphasis on organic food.  Banking, money and finances will be undergoing major changes while Uranus is transiting Taurus.  Taurus is all about what I possess or own, but it can also be associated with extreme views.  Just think back to 1934 and the rise of fascism and Hitler.  Hopefully we won’t repeat the same mistakes.

The sign of Taurus is ruled by Venus so there could be some really pleasant changes in store for us.  Our values could change and there might be new ways to rejuvenate ourselves in terms of the aging process. This piece dovetails nicely with the fact that Chiron recently Aries on February 18, 2019 and this is encouraging all of us to take personal responsibility for our own healing.  That healing could very well involve alternative methods like energy healing and other modalities.

The new moon occurs in 15 degrees of Pisces at 8:00 p.m. on March 6, 2019.  New moons signal new beginnings and it is a perfect time to set new intentions.  I am personally stoked because this new moon occurs in my 5th house of creativity.  The sun and moon are also conjunct Neptune in 16 degrees of Pisces, which has a strong theme of going deeply inward to reflect on what we want and take action to manifest those desires.  We also have five planets in mutable signs on this new moon.  In addition to the sun, moon, Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, we have Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Jupiter in Sagittarius seeks the truth, but it is forming an uncomfortable square (a 6 degree orb, still close enough to be felt) with that new moon.  And this can bring out the shadow side of Pisces, which involves secrets, deception and what is hidden.  So it really is the best course of action to focus on internal power rather than external power.

Another feature of this new moon in Pisces is the fact that the asteroid Pallas, associated with wisdom and the warrior, in 28 degrees of Libra is opposing Uranus in Taurus and squaring the north node in 25 degrees of Cancer and south node in 25 degrees of Capricorn.  This constitutes a T-Square which can simultaneously stimulate drive and courage while generating tension and conflict.  Since it is a cardinal T-Square we can experience feelings of impatience, but it can also propel us into action to initiate new endeavors.  And with Pallas involved, we will literally have the energy to fight for what we believe in.

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 option to do so. I even offer the option of tarot readings.

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:
