The Sun, Mars and Pluto in Action Mode and the Sun Enters Sagittarius


Well, we are coming off one of the most intense New Moons of the year that occurred on November 13 in 20 degrees of Scorpio.  On that day I posted:
Uranus in Taurus certainly had its shot at wreaking havoc on that day, but on November 18, the Sun and Mars will be conjunct in 25 degrees of Scorpio.  This is bound to be a day of increased energy, motivation and assertiveness.  On the plus side, this will give us more inner strength, passion and fearlessness as well as enhancing our creativity.  But it can also make us more impatient and prone to temper tantrums.  Anger can easily get the best of us if we are not careful. This is not a day for sissies, to be sure. It is definitely a volatile vibe and can cause damage if we are not mindful.  It can also be a very accident-prone aspect, so watch where you are going, especially when driving.  If you have any planets in the fixed signs of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, or Scorpio between 20-25 degrees I guarantee that you will feel this energy.  It can be a wild ride on this day. This aspect is conjunct my Venus in 24 degrees of Scorpio in my 2nd house, so I am trying to be prepared for whatever might come...

The Sun in Scorpio is forming a supportive sextile to Pluto in 28 degrees of Capricorn on November 20.  It is a big deal because Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio, amplifying its intensity. This aspect will increase our need to succeed as we are more determined than ever to achieve our goals.  Power is a major theme of this aspect.  Obsession and compulsion can actually be used constructively to increase our influence and attractiveness.  With this aspect in play, the stakes are high and so are the chances of success.  The shadow side of this aspect is utilizing this aspect to control others, but let's not go there, okay?

The Sun has interacted with Mars and Pluto already, so by November 21, Mars in Scorpio has its own duet with Pluto in 28 degrees of Capricorn via a supportive sextile.  Remember that sextiles create opportunities.  Mars sextiling Pluto will bring boatloads of energy to achieve those lofty goals of ours and oodles of passionate desire.  We will have plenty of endurance and physical stamina.  This is yet another day to take the lead and run with it.  And it goes without saying not to attempt to run roughshod over others on this day.

We get a cosmic break on November 22 when the Sun departs the fixed water sign of Scorpio and enters the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius.  I am a true-blue Scorpio, but even I say this every year, all of the intensity that Scorpio entails can be too much to sustain for very long.  When the Sun is in Sagittarius, we want to have fun and adventure.  It is time to push beyond  our boundaries.  Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, so expansion is possible, as is luck and more optimism.  It's time to think big and learn something new.  Traveling is another theme associated with Sagittarius.  Just be mindful of a tendency to exaggerate or blow off some steam with your temper.  Fortunately, Sagittarius is a fire sign and gets over its anger quickly, unlike Scorpio, who can hold grudges for long periods of time.  I speak from experience on that score.

And it is always nice when the Sun is in Sagittarius on Thanksgiving Day in the United States.  This year we also have a Moon in Aries trining Mercury in Sagittarius on November 23 and this should make for some lively conversations around the dinner table.  Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers in the United States!

The coronavirus outbreak caused me to increase the number of distant Reiki sessions I do because people were concerned about the spread of the infection. I have decided to suspend my in-person Reiki sessions until further notice, so all of my Reiki sessions will be distant Reiki sessions for the foreseeable future. But a distant Reiki session is the perfect opportunity to safely build up your immune system and if you have contracted coronavirus, you can be treated safely from the comfort of your home. My procedure is to have a conversation with a client 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 do miss seeing my clients, so I am now offering Zoom consultations/intakes before the session so that we can see each other. 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. The cost for distance Reiki sessions is based on a sliding scale of $30 -$50. For your convenience, I accept Venmo and Zelle for payment. Zelle payments can be sent using my telephone number

617-304-2205. I have also written an article about distance Reiki, which is available at:

I also wanted to note that in an ironic twist of fate, the latest variant of COVID is EG.5, with a nickname of Eris.  Sound familiar--the Goddess of Discord?  Apparently, COVID cases and hospitalizations are on the rise...

I urge everyone to engage in massive amounts of self-care and follow the protective measures of washing your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, wearing a face mask when necessary and staying home if you are sick. And get a vaccine. The newest vaccine is available and I encourage you to get it to protect yourself. I repeat, you do not want to get this virus! I speak from personal experience and consider myself very fortunate to have survived Coronavirus twice. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
