Things we’re loving this week

Things we’re loving this week

Well, it’s officially Wednesday! Halfway through the week! The weekend is in sight!

This first week of October has us thinking and being grateful. So often in our lives we can get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our day to day agendas that very rarely do we stop, take a minute, and just think about something that made you smile earlier in the day. This week, we decided to stop and make note of various things that made us smile, and wanted to share them with you and encourage you to do the same!

Listening to your kids belt out the same song over and over is one thing, but listening to your kid belt out Lizzo is priceless! Kristen Bell seems to think so too! Check it out here.

These. Cookies. 

While there’s nothing quite like one of grandma’s from-scratch chocolate chip cookies, these pre-cut, ready to bake ones from Pillsbury are a staple no matter the season! With decorations for every holiday, they’re a fun treat for kids and adults alike.

Here in New England the leaves have started to change and the weather has started to cool down just in time for one of our favorite things : Fall Hikes!

Whether it’s a quick hour or two loop, or a full day trip to bag another 14,000 footer, there are options for everyone within driving distance of the Boston area!

What are some things that have made you smile this week? Not sure? No worries! For the rest of the week pause just for a moment as things make you laugh or bring a smile to your face and just take in the moment. Then, be sure to let us know!

Planet Flash : Week of 10/7

By Nancy Foley of Cienna Moon 

As I begin to assemble the information for this week’s flash I am hearing a song playing in my head. It’s “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealers Wheel. There is a refrain that goes…”clowns to left of me, jokers to the right and here I am stuck in the middle with you”.

As we come into the middle degrees of various planets in the cardinal signs we come to terms with what we have started (at various times of this year) and now look to finish. All throughout the week we look at the unfinished business in our life as we take up the torch or the appropriate tools so we can complete our mission.

From now until Sunday we are truly stuck in the middle; the middle degrees of Libra. This is where we are called upon to be decisive and take our finger off the balance scale. Each of the next several days causes us to get more attuned to the higher mind via our interpersonal relationships. We may find we are more focused on the future rather than the past during Monday and Tuesday.

Then on Wednesday we may pulled into the past and perhaps even feel like we drowning in old feelings we thought we had released or worked through. Keep in mind the full moon on Sunday may bring us a life preserver just at the right time. Stay tuned for more on that further in this post.

10/7/19 Monday we will experience some unexpected changes in our conversations or communications as Mercury and Uranus face off early in the morning. Make sure to back up your data as updates may alter or disrupt what you are seeing today. Pay attention while driving and watch what is going on around you as this is a day for shocks and surprises; what you least expect to happen could easily occur now.

Sun squares up with Saturn around 3:07 PM. We are tired of the current system of justice or fair play. We want to reconsider what the rules are and who gets ultimate control in the game. The game I reference actually started back on January (1/2/19) of this year.

Now we look at how much needs to be altered or changed before we take the next step. We are seeing where we have been ruled and schooled by other’s sense of values since that time. What we thought was important back in January may now be left in the dust as we look to recover our sense of balance or inner harmony. We don’t want to fall in line at this moment but rather stand aside as we weigh out the pros and cons of the situation. Today is the day where it’s ok to say, let me get back to you, rather than making a quick decision. What takes space in our head can be entirely up to us if we do this instead of continuing following the current narrative.

10/8/19 Tuesday the energy of our attractions and desires shifts from Libra to Scorpio at 1:06 PM. It’s of interest to me that last year around this time we were in the Venus retrograde cycle (10/5/18-11/16/18). If there any unfinished business from that period that needs to be finished up, now will be the time to find out. Passion, privacy, power, and purpose will be buzz words as our secrets are about to be told. Since the themes of repetition and congruity are around us today we get to see who or what really has a strong hold on us still.

10/9/19 Wednesday this is the time where we may feel like we are drowning and wondering if we really have a lifeguard within our current relationships. Patterns related to enabling or dependency might surface or suffer at this time. I get the feeling that someone could use your own sensitive nature against you if it gets you to do what they want. How truly weak we can feel when we find our sympathies played upon or used against us! And yet….who really is to blame when this happens? If you find yourself once again in the same deep seated emotional patterns around family or familiar situations in your life it’s time to call a stop to it NOW!

We have a gibbous moon in Pisces at 2:27 PM a time to see what is beginning to develop in our inner spiritual journey. With this energy we can more easily detect the risk or potential dangers around us in our relationships over the next several days. It’s going to be a period where we determine who we leave out and who we let into our inner sanctum. Ghosts of the pasts could haunt us as much as those who try to overstep our healthy boundaries. Self-denial is an escape route but not one that is necessarily good for the soul. If that is a route you often take you might find that way isn’t an option anymore.

Today is about trusting your natural instincts so you can see where your true power is located. Self- preservation is ours to use at our discretion and doesn’t require the assistance from an outside source it just requires us tuning in and paying attention to our true feelings.

10/10/19 Thursday is a good day to mellow out and reflect on life. If we have been honoring our own instincts and working with a unity consciousness it’s a great day to settle in to the flow. If you have been swimming against the stream you may find the current is stronger than you anticipated and it might be time to give in.  As the song goes “turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream it is not dying”. * Beatles, “Tomorrow Never Knows”. Surrender is not death is it about returning to the flow, the river of life, and self-acceptance; if you fight the tide too long you might drown.

Starting today we could find our unanswered prayers were actually blessings in disguise. A certain instant karma surrounds the day and we can easily see various things in a very different light.

10/12/19 Saturday we move into the last decan or last ten degrees of the Libra sun. These last 10 days will bring us to a time where we can thrash out our ideas while we gather in the fruits of our labors for the year. We are in the harvest period, it’s time to share our thoughts and ideas with others; support and guide our friends or allies in the days ahead.

Tension will build around how far to push things with those who appear inflexible or determined to maintain their power base. There is a sense that compromise is the only option available and yet??? It’s time to set our priorities in our relationships and make sure we are adhering to our own ethics and moral standards. We can’t always be the excuse for someone’s bad choices or wrong actions, at some time they have to acknowledge their own personal responsibility and accept consequences for their actions. Alignment and realignment is a theme for now and tomorrow as we attempt to become a clear mirror for self and others.

10/13/19 Sunday the pendulum in life swings back to center with a dull thud as time resets once again. The full moon arrives around 5:08 PM at 20 Aries 14. This is the hour where we are called upon to stand up for ourselves. It’s time for us to exert our will and work for positive change in our lives. For some this might come across as a defensive stand or battle of wills. For others it will take you where your heart leads you. For all of us it’s about self-confidence, inner strength, and the ability to be who we really are in any and all relationships. Love and authenticity are the keys for this full moon; no one can keep you from being you unless you let them take you away from yourself!

As we come to love ourselves and let our light shine others support us. If we seek to stand in their light rather than our own we are doomed to live in our own inner darkness or shadow self.

10/14/19 Monday a new work week begins and we are cautious around our judgments. Something is not proving to be the big bargain we were hoping for. It’s time to go back over our plans and see where they can be edited or revised. Looking back to 1/11/19 when the Sun and Pluto joined forces we may see what needs to be discontinued now. Are you the one holding the situation together while others have already disconnected? If so consider whether this is really your role for the days and months ahead.

Relax your hold on the situation and see where things go from here. A natural balance needs to be struck rather than an artificial sense of harmony maintained. I keep seeing yes men around a situation where the only way to get things back on track is to stand up and say NO. If one bad apple is threatening to spoil the situation now is the time to eliminate the source of the contamination before it can spread. We really do need to attend to the current problem at hand to prevent potential loss in the future.

This feels to me to be the day where the Mercury retrograde message is taking hold. Nothing good will come from ignoring a situation that has gone on too long. It’s time to root out the decay and clean out the rot so we can have something healthy to build on in time. For that reason I feel the upcoming Mercury retrograde is vital to our wellbeing and psychological conditioning.

We are open for readings throughout the week ahead, call or text us at 781-447-3993 to set your appointment. Saturday please join us at the Theatre One Psychic Fair from 11-3 PM. The address is the Mitchell Club; 29 Elm Street: Middleboro, MA.

Also if you are interested in studying astrology we have a three week class starting next Tuesday 10/15/19 from 6-8PM. It’s entitled the A, B, C’s of Astrology and it’s a great way to delve into learning this amazing subject introduced through reading your very own chart. More can be found on our workshop page or by clicking

Thank you, as always, for your interest and support.

This week we go back to what justice and fairness really mean…

This week we go back to what justice and fairness really mean…

Planet Flash – Week of 9/30/19

By Nancy Foley

As I begin to write this week’s flash I am being shown two friends on a tennis court. As they take a moment to hydrate and catch their breath one says to the other that was my match. The other turns astonished saying, “I didn’t think we were keeping score”.

In that moment each knows where the other stands; it seems assumptions and suppositions have given way to a new reality! Now the competition begins and the friendship takes a backseat as one becomes the opponent to the other.  A silence follows but one could imagine a spectator to the scene saying, “all’s fair in love and war”.

All this week we go back to what justice and fairness really means. Standards shift, allegiances change, and perhaps we recognize that line that isn’t meant to be crossed was only temporary at best. If you have a deal breaker/deal maker experience during this period know it’s all about showing you were you really stand. In knowing where we stand we redefine ourselves in relationship to other and offer insights into our own direction ahead.

9/30/19 Monday opens with moon shifting into Scorpio around 5:42 am. We may experience some instinctual feelings around a situation where we felt sabotaged or assaulted by others. Revenge and retribution could be themes now. A sense of strength and weakness are a two edged sword that could come between us and another party. We may need to be cautious or vigilant as we move ahead so as not to be taken advantage of or over play our part.

10/1/19 Tuesday requires a price to be paid. We are caught in a trap around dedication and the real cost of the deal being made. A certain intensity or extremism pushes or pulls in a certain direction throughout the day.

10/2/19 Wednesday moon shifts to Sagittarius around 7:44 am. A certain need to be in the know could ultimately lead to a sense of self-righteousness during the day.  You may pride yourself on clever solutions around lunch time; it’s good to see your mind work! The more you can assess, analyze, and integrate yourself into a situation the better you will feel.

10/3/19 Thursday there is a shift in the energy; a ripple in the fabric of time. Pluto is direct once again as of 2:39 am today. Then Mercury moves into Scorpio around 4:14am. In some way we want to regain our position of power and maintain a certain hold on our life. Yet we see that the “game” has taken on a serious note. This isn’t a friendly place for those who are unsure of where they stand. Those who are insecure within themselves may become vindictive or seek vindication over time.  Watch out for those who want to take a swipe at you; anticipate their actions as you make your approach.

10/4/19 Friday Mars has moved into Scorpio as of 12:22 am this morning. We are looking towards team work and rebalancing extremes over the next couple of weeks. The focus will be on reclaiming your direction and not sacrificing yourself to keep things on an even keel.

We can start to focus on our place in any relationships and practice staying in our lane rather than getting pulled off course.

10/5/19 Saturday we are set up for the first quarter moon (challenge round of the month) at 12:47 pm. The sun in Libra and moon in Capricorn has us pulled between fresh starts and traditional patterns.  Perhaps we are required to reconsider what allies or allegiances belong in the past and where we go in the present or future.

The more solid you are within yourself (inner security) the less likely you are to be destabilized by your interactions with others.  With moon and Saturn joining up around 4:40pm we are finding our emotional anchors. Today we may find ourselves looking for deeper answers and solutions around that time as we feel that we are on solid ground in our key relationship (the one with our self).

10/6/19 Sunday the Sun squares up with the North Node in Cancer and South Node in Capricorn creating what is known as a moon wobble. It’s a wonky energy that spans out in our life for days before and after this time. We are like inclinometers, an instrument used for measuring angles of slope (or tilt), elevation, or depression of an object with respect to gravity’s direction, trying to resynch or recalibrate at this time. In other words what’s up and what’s down might be the topic of discussion for days to come.

Moon shifts into Aquarius around 11:42pm giving us rise; a new incline. We might find that we have moved up to the crest of the hill or peak of the mountain with a new view from this height. The question is whether to look up or look down from this new position!

10/7/19 Monday we recover our balance from our peak experience yesterday or very early today. Can we go there, can we stay there, or will we never go there again? I guess it all depends on our fear of heights. Can we elevate ourselves beyond our current limits we might just have an answer around 3:07pm when Sun and Saturn square off. This is the time where we complete a cycle that began around January 2, 2019 this year. Who really is in control and in charge? I see a summons being served and feel that in some way certain people will be called on to justify their position or even their moral or ethical standards.

What begins now may be the subject for review during the Mercury retrograde that begins at the end of this month. Think long and hard on what are really matters of principle and not pride.

We have openings this week so call or text us at 781-447-3993. We are also a three week class called the A,B, Cs of astrology for $150. The dates and times are: 10/15, 10/22, and 10/29 from 6pm-8pm. The location is our shop here in Hanson. In these three sessions we will work with the core of a chart analysis. The first week will cover the ascendant and how to size up a chart, the second week the sun and what we are here to do in this life, and the third week the moon the support system to our life and determining factor for both health and wellbeing.

A chain reaction is fueling a reactive pattern around us

A chain reaction is fueling a reactive pattern around us

Planet Flash Week of 9/23/19

By Nancy Foley


As I start to write this week I am hearing, “Isolation, dedication, provocation, and results”. It feels like a chain reaction of sorts is fueling a reactive pattern around us. The ignition point (provocation) comes in our interactions with others. Interesting as today at the Autumnal Equinox (3:50 AM) we are entering the social phase of the year. The Sun in early Libra is all about cooperation and balance with a great emphasis on fairness or justice.

Monday 9/23/19: Today we shift gears from summer to fall acknowledging the days are getting noticeably shorter. Some would say the ascendancy of the Goddess energy that began at the Summer Solstice is now reaching its peak. Soon enough, in three months, the Winter Solstice will arrive. This year along with the Solstice we will be experiencing the last Solar Eclipse of the year.

We are reaching the midpoint between the last Solar Eclipse (7/2/19) and the upcoming eclipse in December. Libra is the middle ground between Cancer and Capricorn; a place where we seek to balance both our needs and ambitions. We do this by finding who stands with us and who stands against us as we move out into the world at large. Every encounter we experience during this period is a reflection back on some part of our life. Pay attention to how others see you as much as you see them. There is a lot of good feedback that can come your way.


Tuesday 9/24/19: Moon shifts into Leo energy around 5:19 am. Leo brings a strength to our feelings and allows us express ourselves in a bold or dramatic fashion. It could bring some opposition to our exchanges in the form of devil’s advocate or pulling rank. We don’t want others to misread their needs for our own.

Around the morning hours we could be making inaccurate statements or false assumptions. You might want to take a step back before getting further off track in your communications. Better to let this energy pass and make important decisions later in the day.

In the evening we are gaining a sense of cooperation or support! That didn’t take long after all for the tide to turn. Sometimes we just have to allow things to sink before we can continue the discussion.

Wednesday 9/25/19: If you wondered where the boundaries exist in your current relationships; you might find it all begins or ends at the bottom line. Fiscal restraints or responsibilities have us looking at who holds the power and control at this time. We may need to restrict our spending or restructure our budgets based on predictions for the upcoming quarter. A certain sobriety around our sense of richness in life is upon us now.

Thursday 9/26/19: Moon moves into practical Virgo and we need to be helpful in some way. It might be a good day to negotiate for a better position or new responsibilities. As Mercury and Pluto square up we are looking to do and have our fair share. We just don’t want to be discredited for our efforts.


Friday 9/27/19: We so long to be a part of something that we could get caught up in the flash and dazzle. This is an easy day to get infatuated with someone or something. In a day or so we may see what promise this situation holds for us.

Saturday 9/28/19: Moon moves into team builder Libra around 6:03 am. We are in the dark of the moon phase until 2:26 pm. This might be a time where old ties or partnerships are appreciated in new or different ways. We come to see the connections from the past as links in a chain that has taken us from there to here (the present). Who did we accept in our life back then and who do we accept in our life now? Who or what has changed over time?

New Moon in Libra arrives at 2:26 PM. We are getting ready to rewrite history and find new balance in our life. We will be looking at where the lacks and extremes of the year pulled us off balance and how to get back in center now. Some of the great lessons of this time have to do with reciprocity, harmony, and achieving a perfect pairing. Don’t waste this period by giving in because it’s easier than standing your ground. Don’t try to do for others what they won’t do for themselves. Instead offer the world your gifts and see what is returned in kind.

You may not have to wait too long for a response as Venus and Jupiter are ready to give you small tokens of affection or appreciation around 7:41pm. Tonight count your blessings and see how much the world has to offer you at this time.

Sunday 9/29/19: We may encounter a period of adjustment or compromise today as our values and partnerships aren’t meshing up. Seems like we have changed our perspective around one or both and we will need to do some revising or reevaluation. What needs to grow, what needs to go? These are questions to be answered once Pluto goes direct on 10/3/19.

Monday 9/30/19: Moon shifts into Scorpio around 5:42 am. In the darkness lies the answer as we rely upon our intuition for guidance and feedback. Some mysteries are revealed because they can’t stay in the dark for that long! Silence is golden on a day like today. If someone is giving you too many details that just might be the indicator their Pinocchio is at play.

We are looking forward to an interesting week that helps guide us toward the big energies ahead in December and January. If you are feeling this same vibe give us a call or text at 781-447-3993, we are here to help you find your direction in the turbulent times.

Do we smell pie? ?

Do we smell pie? ?

With the fall season officially kicking off this weekend and the weather starting to cool, we have one thing on our mind. Apple. Pie. Because let’s be honest, is there anything better than a fresh warm apple pie in the fall? We don’t think so!

Not only is apple pie a fall staple, but it’s also super easy to make!


You will need: 

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 to 7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
1 tablespoon butter
1 large egg white
Additional sugar

Time to Create!

1. In a small bowl, combine the sugars, flour and spices and then set aside. In a large bowl, toss cut apples with lemon juice. Add sugar mixture from small bowl and toss to coat.

2. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust and trim even with edge.

3. Fill with apple mixture and then add dots of butter

4. Roll remaining crust out to fit top of pie and place over filling

5. Trim, seal and flute (press to make look fancy) the edges, then cut slits in the top crust and don’t be afraid to get creative!

6. Beat egg white until foamy and brush over crust.

7. Sprinkle sugar on top, cover the edges loosely with foil, and pop your pie in the oven!

8. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 20-25 minutes longer.

9. Cool on a wire rack.

Finally, cut that pie and enjoy!
