Planet Flash week of 11/18/19
By Nancy Foley
We start out the week wondering if indeed it’s all in the past as new information spills out that previously was unknown or untold. It seems it is time for the brave to step forward while the timid step back into the shadows once again.
I hear you’ll never know what you are going to say until you say it! This seems to be true as many spend their day deferring, deflecting, or otherwise attempting to spin the dialogue in their preferred direction. Yet some say enough of this, it’s time to say what you mean and mean what you say.
11/18/19 Monday as the Moon and Mercury square up early this morning it has become a time of truth or self-aggrandizement. It will be interesting to see who gets to illustrate this point in our life both locally and globally. I think it will serve as a reveal for the true hero while showing up the hypocrite as we follow along in the narrative.
11/19/19 Tuesday I hear “migrate to a new position in the north or the south” it feels like this message is about extremism and choosing sides. However as Mars shifts to Scorpio, around 2:40 a.m., it might suggest a different type of choice one which involves spiritual evolution or transcendence as we look to rise up rather than be tethered to the baser impulses.
As we come upon the fourth quarter moon in Leo (27 Leo 14) at 4:11 p.m. we are directed toward self-mastery and interdependence. The spoiled brat or entitled one must understand the current reality. We are all in need of a fresh start in our life; one where we see inclusion rather than domination. If we all get a say and all play a part then no one is the outcast or the overlord. It’s time to see we are all in this together as a new tomorrow heads this way.
The moon shifts into Virgo around 8:54 p.m. reminding us we are all works in progress. We have so much to do over the next couple of days to improve or heal our lives. For now, let’s just take things one step at a time.
11/20/19 Wednesday Mars and Neptune call for an adjustment in our approach; it’s unclear as to whether we put ourselves or others around us first now. Mercury going direct at 2:12 pm might help shift our focus from pessimism to a new strategic way of thinking as insightful answers appear at this time. We are able to express ourselves well around 4:32pm. Penetrating insights make for good company from this point on until early Friday morning.
11/21/19 Thursday today is the last full day of Sun in Scorpio so expect a bit of increased intensity as we look to analyze our lives at this time. We have a cooperative energy between the moon and sun which peaks around 10:31pm. This is a great day to solve the mysteries and perfect the process as Scorpio and Virgo show us what a great team they make. Good day to reconcile your bank accounts and review your spreadsheets!
Moon shifts into social Libra around 11:20pm. Now we seek to balance out our lives and find acceptance in our relationships instead of reformation. We want to be seen for who we are rather than the person you desire us to be; in this energy it can be hard to do at times. It’s always good to remember that true companionship starts with self-acceptance in addition to acceptance of another.
11/22/19 Friday the sun shifts into Sagittarius at 9:59 a.m. and we are off to the races. Nothing is going to hold us down or hold us back from a forward moving direction. Sagittarius is the ultimate explorer and one willing to take that leap of faith!
We may feel a bit restless as we get acclimated to this new energy but I suspect it won’t take too long. High hopes and great expectations can also lead to a sense of converting others to our way of life. It is here we may have to ratchet back our enthusiasm or experience some pushback as a result.
11/23/19 Saturday we enter the balsamic moon phase of the lunar cycle from now until Tuesday 11/26/19. It is time to reflect on what must be released in order to work on the new in the next cycle of time. This is a period where we might be inclined to make a concession if it can get us out of the fray. Just remember whatever you give away now will not be available later on.
11/24/19 Sunday Mars opposes Uranus around 11:51 a.m. putting us in a challenging position in our relationships. We may find our enthusiasm found earlier in the morning, around 8:33 a.m., has taken things a little too far. We are off course and could feel misdirected based on what we think we deserve or have earned in a certain situation. Watch who or what you give power to because it might not provide the great return you are expecting. Everyone’s agenda is about to surface today.
Moon shifting to Scorpio at 12:58 p.m. might be the saving grace as it reveals the underpinnings or hidden motives in the situations around us. The key is to not be provoked or provoking but rather be still and wait to see what happens next. Much can be revealed at the time of the dark moon in Scorpio.
11/25/19 Monday we are in a moon void of course (dead zone energetically) from 12:30 p.m. today through 3:11 a.m.; let your grand plans simmer on the back burner today. This is a good time to sort through things and purge what is no longer needed for the journey ahead.
Venus moves into Capricorn at 7:28 p.m. our relationships become more serious and perhaps transactional in nature for the month ahead. We want to see results plus get the respect called for in our relationships through acquisition of a certain status or title.
11/26/19 Tuesday is the new moon in Sagittarius (4 Sagittarius 03) at 10:06 a.m. This is a time to rise and shine by showing the world who we are and what we are here to do. If we are spending too much time explaining ourselves or defending our position this month than we are obviously doing something wrong. This new moon likes things to be self-evident and for us to display self-confidence without erring on the side of zeal or false pride. To all things be true and most importantly be true to yourself!!!
Since this is the last new moon before the next solar eclipse it might be worthwhile to explore the messages from the last solar eclipse in July (7/2/19) so as to understand their full impact on your life and put things in the proper context.
I see the image of the two masks one of comedy and one of tragedy in my mind’s eye. It seems to me this period is revealing how we live a life of our own making based on our level of personal understanding. What we demand from others relates to what we ask of our self. Those who are aware of their real needs can get their needs met. Those who expect others to know their needs while they thrash around in the dark become a danger not only to themselves but those around them. We all must come to see the guiding force that helps transform us from immaturity to wisdom; in essence nothing happens outside of us which isn’t emanating from within. To turn from suffering to salvation we must clear out the wounding of the past and transmute that energy from projection to enlightenment. Each struggle has a lesson that is only learned when we relinquish the past and move on to share wisdom and knowledge with others. This really does relate to the old adage “many are called but few are chosen”.
On that note I wish you a good week ahead. We are open for business right up till Thanksgiving Day. We are reachable by phone or text at 781-447-3993, so contact us now to set your appointment. Planet Flash week of 11/12/19

Tuesday 11/12/19 we begin the day with a full moon in Taurus at 8:34 AM. The pull between what we achieved this year and the power or influence it has over us or others is the theme now. The Universe delights in showing us that nothing is forever and all that we deem solid can be transformed over time.
The takeaway from this period is value what you have done over the past six months while you prepare for the changes ahead. Things are shaping up that is for certain but to what end we are only able to guess. For now we must admire how we got this far and be aware there is something more coming ahead that may put our experience in a totally different context when all the results are in.
Mars and Jupiter feel to be using our social support system to gather the forces or help point us in the right direction. We are reminded that the future waits for us all and being part of something bigger than ourselves requires an ability to relate well with others. We are not so much judged by the company we keep but how we keep company.
Wednesday 11/13/19 today things could be a bit out of hand. Venus goes out of bounds for a month starting today. This could bring some level of our desires or cravings to the extreme creating strange attractions or odd experiences during this period. Getting carried away or taking things too far could be a theme as Venus and Neptune square up on Thursday. We are so willing to belief in something or someone we don’t see the sacrifices involved; at least not yet!
Today we have Mercury retrograde retracing its steps over both Saturn and Neptune this could help us see our deeper fears and illusions in a new light. This might bring to mind some helpful insights or strategies that can allow us to release and move on once Mercury direct passes over these planets later on (11/28-30).
Sun and Pluto today help anchor us to our sense of integrity and commitment. Perhaps we have come to see the manipulating forces around us from a new perspective. As long as Venus doesn’t blind us to our scruples and sense of faith we are good to go.
However with Venus in Sagittarius (out of bounds) we could be influenced by “foreign” money at this time which leads me to ask what is the price of integrity on the foreign market these days? Big payoffs or paydays have a way of making us look at life differently now as we all seek something more, bigger, or well beyond the norm.
Thursday 11/14/19 as I began to write for today I heard “highest ranking officer”. Perhaps the political climate (corporate or governmental) will be challenged by those in a greater position or place of power as we acknowledge the chain of command.
Today Venus and Neptune form an aspect that makes it hard to discern between truth and illusion. We may be swayed by some “false advertising” so try to avoid getting swept up or oversold.
Friday 11/15/19 as we move towards the last seven degrees of the Sun in Scorpio we are pulled further into the energy of transition and change. Today’s theme is shock and awe. We may be derailed by our fantasies or driven closer to our goals by the visions we hold within.
Saturday 11/16/19 I hear the refrain from the Battle Hymn of the Republic. It is “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; he is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; he hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword; his truth is marching on”.
What captures my attention is the phrase “his truth is marching on”. Whose truth are we listening to today? It is an interesting energy we are facing now as the desire to know is wrapped up in the energy of Scorpio at this degree it now holds. The Sabian symbol of 24 Scorpio speaks to knowing your audience and talking to them in terms they understand. But I wonder are these terms linked to our baser instincts or higher principles; his truth is marching on.
Sunday 11/17/19 at this time I like to remember that Scorpio wears three different labels. The first is the Scorpion who stings because it can. The second is the firebird who can transform out of the ashes. The third is the Eagle who can fly above because his spirit is linked to a higher calling.
Today with the moon squaring up with Mars and Uranus I feel like we are all navigating between these three labels. Some sinners will become saints and some saints will become sinners as the energy around us intensifies. We are being asked to see through any sham or pretense that comes our way to avoid being caught off guard or seduced by the darker forces.
Monday 11/18/19 calls for justice and fairness may be heard as Mars spends its last day in Libra for the next two years. Our actions and reactions are based on what we perceive to be the right direction things should take to now. The Sabian symbol for this degree speaks of outreach or networking combined with insight and foresight. Legal matters may be settled or judgments served as the time has come to settle some kind of negotiation or conflict; get our house in order.
In closing this week’s flash I am being given one more quote. This one comes from Patrick Henry, “now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party”. As Mars shifts into Scorpio 11/19/19 we may find that determining our next move is predicated on our sense of alignment. Political shifts or philosophical leanings could help us serve the right or wrong master. It’s up to us to wait to see before we take severe action and cut ourselves loose.
Till then may you find that which you are seeking in the darkness and the light!
We have openings again on the weekends and throughout the week please call or text us at 781-447-3993 to set your appointment or book your party.
Planet Flash week of 11/4/19
By Nancy Foley
As I begin to write this week’s missive I am shown the image of a person who is about to captivate the audience or at least this is their hope. Before entering the room there is a sense of heightened anticipation and grand expectations. Then the door is opened and the audience is revealed, how will this all play out?
Monday 11/4/19 we enter the space of the first quarter moon at 5:23 AM. From this moment until the next we are aware of the undercurrent around us. What we do now will form the basis of our future. It starts with us reading the room and thereby understanding what is expected from us. Do we go with what the audience is projecting or do we show them a different version of what this experience can be? It depends on whether we are here to discuss evolution (a scope into the future) or revolution (stirring up emotional extremes); whichever idea possesses us and eventually will come to possess the room.
Today is all about what moves us and then moves other as well; the contact high or low. The power, passion, and purpose that moves us from deep within is a rallying cry that can eventually leap to others as well. There was a movie back in 1998 called FALLEN with Denzel Washington and John Goodman. The theme of the movie was that a negative energy passes from one host to the other. It’s a good visual for the concept of possession and a good reminder that such a thing exists though we may call it by other names as well!
When we are possessed by a person, place, or thing we become hosts to that energy. We pass that energy on to others in the way we express what has hold over us. Think of the idea of fear or hate for example, if you are possessed by that you find that in some way you carry it out to the world at large and spread it on. We all echo and interpret our version of the inner and outer world like a transponder. I would argue that we are all holding some of these energies within us and just waiting for them to be called forth through our interactions with others.
The moon shifts to Pisces at 6:08 PM. We are being asked to choose whether we are the villain or the victim as we feel a lessening in our influence at this time of the day. Perhaps we are meant to find time alone and reconnect with our source rather than allow the day to overtake us.
Tuesday 11/5/19 around 5:28 AM Mars and Pluto square off causing a stirring up from within. We want to direct the relationships around us into a more harmonious certainty. Yet we find that the very act of determining the balance holds its own power over us. We may end up feeling that we have lost the very control we thought we had as a result.
Financial or relationship static reminds us that if we don’t succeed at first we should try again. Perhaps we could start with introducing some minor changes this time though instead of the pervasive changes we thought were the answers. Love and life is an experimental process where failure or success is achieved in small degrees.
Wednesday 11/6/19 whatever takes hold of you today could help provide a novel solution for a complex problem. Look for messages to arrive at the most opportune times.
Thursday 11/7/19 you must allow the feelings to find you today. This is a time where that which is denied becomes the very thing holding you back. Remember all who wander are not lost. And if you are feeling that today please allow me to say more or actually for JRR Tolkein to say more:
“All that is gold does not
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
Friday 11/8/19 still waters run deep but eventually spill into the wellspring of all that life offers. Let us not pollute these waters with more hate and fear rather let the Aries moon show us the light of a fresh start and new beginning. The moon shifts to Aries at 6:49 AM and points us in the direction of our own path or new tomorrow.
Today the Sun has important connections with both Saturn and Neptune highlighting where our passion can do good work and bring subtle but profound awareness. We are able to shape our dreams into a new sort of reality around 9:45 PM when Saturn sextiles Neptune. This aspect is about giving birth to your best self.
It’s time to allow the burdens of this life to embrace us and guide us toward the place of surrender and devotion. We are tapped into some kind of spiritual work just like the author above who gives us hope in the time of darkness. It’s a day where we find that weakness can be strength and strength can be weakness as all things are enmeshed and transformed over time.
Saturday 11/9/19 the message has been delivered and the dictate has been received. We know in a deeper or more profound way where our true power exists; it lives in the “kingdom of God within”. We are here to honor our own potential and not be dictated to by others machinations or manipulations nor stoop to using those methods on others to get our needs met.
Remember why you are here….why you chose this life or allowed this life to be chosen for you. Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come and eventually all that is weighed down by the heaviness of its self- importance will succumb to the pressure, die, and be resurrected.
Sunday 11/10/19 Moon shifts to Taurus at 6:18 PM. We find value in the moment and come to see there is much to be grateful for even after a rather tense week. We are the results of our own ambitions and with that we see what builds us up and what eventually tears us down. As we head towards a full moon on the 12th we come to see what matters most to us at this time.
Monday 11/11/19 Veterans Day. Now is the time to give tribute to those who served this country and showed us what patriotism really is; standing up for others rights and freedoms. Today we are reminded of that which is worth fighting for and the true enemy we stand against (oppression, hatred, and dictatorships).
Tuesday 11/12/19 the full moon in Taurus is upon at 8:34 AM. The message in this moon is to see what has been built or destroyed over the past six months. Have we seen our passions overtake our true purpose? Have we come to see that going to extremes keeps us from having a place of peace? We are looking for the balance between the material and spiritual worlds at this time. It is in this place and time we come to see that peace comes from within and that which we reach for outside of us will never bring us the fullness we seek within. To feel full and rich, to be satiated we must be one with our own nature and spirit; be at peace in our soul. We must draw out that which has been suppressed and kept us from allowing ourselves to evolve beyond the inner darkness into the light of a new paradigm and purpose.
All the best to you! We have openings this week and our last fair of the year this Saturday. The First Spiritualist Church of Brockton is hosting a fair on 11/9/19 at the Anawan Grange; 243 Winthrop Street; Rehoboth, MA from 11-5 PM. Call us or text us at 781-447-3993 to get a reading.
