SOLAR RETURN CHART

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 26, 2021 at 9:20 AM Comments comments ()

A Solar Return Chart is generally prepared at the time of an individual’s birthday, although it can be prepared at any time and is prepared with information on the exact day that the Sun returns to its original position in the natal chart, by the sign, degree, and minute, precisely. If the Sun in the birth chart is in Capricorn at 15 degrees 12 minutes, the return chart is prepared with the exact same location for the year in focus.

 

This Chart is prepared in similarly to a birth chart, as the exact timing establishes the Ascendant degree for your location. The location is where you may happen to be on the day of the return, (which, again, establishes the Ascendant’s degree.) It is read as a birth chart although it is only focused for the year from birthday to birthday. Some begin to feel the energies as they approach the birthday as much as 3 months prior to the actual birthday.

 

Studying your Solar Return Chart can help you prepare for the energies which will be at hand and you can focus on whatever areas of life will be emphasized for that year. You can also add transits to the solar return for the period in question.

 

The Ascendant sign and ruling planet of the Ascendant, the Moon and its sign and house position, the Sun and its house position as well as any major configurations and tight aspects will play significant roles. If the Solar Chart has many similarities to the natal chart, it will be an important year, especially if the rising sign is close in degree to the rising sign of the natal chart.

 

The Moon, its house and aspects will define your emotional makeup for the focal year. You should also investigate the aspect from the Solar chart to the natal positions, as this will help give a clear picture and provide you with timers for events and areas of life that might be involved. Remember our natal chart is our blueprint.

 

Although the Sun is in the same sign and degree, its house placement likely will be different. There are many other facets to take into consideration but this chart on its own will define clearly what to expect in the year in focus and will often correlate with the transits and progressions to the natal chart. It adds dimension to the overall translation of upcoming energies and events in the forecast for the year ahead.

SYNASTRY AND COMPOSITE CHARTS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 23, 2021 at 7:40 AM Comments comments ()

Synastry and Composite charts can be prepared when two people first meet or when there is an ongoing relationship. These charts provide clues into the nature and function of the relationship. The relationship can be emotional, business or otherwise. These Chart reveal the compatibility of the individuals involved and provide insight into how both the easy flow energies and the more challenging energies of the relationship will flow.

 

The Composite chart uses the calculated midpoint of all the planets and angles. Synastry charts are the comparison between two individuals using their natal charts and then looking for aspects between the two charts.

 

Either chart can be prepared for two individuals (business partners, life partners, parent/child relationship, sibling relationship, and the list goes on). Any two individuals can have these types of charts prepared, however to have either of these charts prepared an accurate birth time, date of birth and place of birth for both individuals are required.

 

There are challenging aspects in most charts and sometimes areas that lack specific energies. The charts can indicate if the other individual has to bring resolution to any issue or bring further difficulties into place. The energies and type of aspect will often denote what to expect and how to overcome the adversity or how to manipulate the energies in such a way to promote positivity into the relationship.

 

Both the Composite and the Synastry charts are very detailed. There is much to be revealed using this method and insight that can prove to be quite valuable.

THE MIND IS NOT THE MASTER

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 22, 2021 at 7:35 AM Comments comments ()

Many of us connect our mind’s interpretation and its focus with whom we are. We identify with this focus and intently listen to the mind’s constant chatter. As a result of our focus on this chatter, we experience extremes in our emotions. We can be swept along aimlessly, and we fail to realize or question this habit.

 

Many of us are not aware of our ability to detach ourselves from the mind. We can choose whether to listen to the thoughts and chatter. We always have a choice as to what we take on as our own, what to act on and what to allow to be dropped. It is a choice, whether conscious or unconscious.

 

Distinction and perception are attainable. Once attained, we deal with a though and then let it go. Positive thinking, channeling our perception away from habitual responses, meditative techniques and mind’s focus are some practices that can be utilized to help control our mind’s auto response.

 

There are countless self-help and psychology books and speakers that can assist developing our focus techniques if we are struggling with this. Although others can help us facilitate expansion of awareness, we are the ones that must do the “hands on”, “practical” work.

 

We heal from within and ultimately the only factor of change is whether or not we decide to make change. It is imperative that we understand our place and responsibility with everything in life.

 

We do not need to be imprisoned by our mind, and our lessons of growth and freedom develop through life’s experience. We have the power to move in whatever direction we choose and to rise above any events in our journey. Life is a miracle to be fully experienced, including every twist and turn. Experience this moment with gratitude. Recognize our ability to rise to the top (whatever our definition of the “top” may be).

 

Love life fully as life will always mirror what we put out. What are you seeing in the reflection of life’s mirror?

SUN IN LEO JULY 22, 2021

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 21, 2021 at 7:30 AM Comments comments ()

On July 22, 2021, the Sun moves from the watery, cardinal sign of Cancer into the fiery, fixed sign of Leo. In some ways both signs have some characteristics that might be considered similar, such as the need for Cancer to nurture and its sensitivity, although Leo would change the nurturing qualities into caring and the strong desire to assist those in need. Leo is still considered sensitive and even emotional but can control these emotions easier than the ever-sensitive Cancer.

 

Most Leo individuals enjoy the limelight and enjoy being the center of attention. They truly enjoy being of assistance although can be a little too controlling for some, but their intensions are always good. They often feel they know what is best for others and do not mind sharing their ideas. Leos are willing to help others but also would like some recognition for their efforts. They try very hard and would appreciate a pat on their back for their efforts.

 

Leo can be dramatic and will not go unnoticed unless there are other factors in the chart suggesting otherwise. Leo individuals are strong-willed, stubborn, and often are found in a leadership role. If they are not in a leadership role, they likely wish they were. In many ways they feel as though they could do as good or better than their superiors. Approval from their superiors goes a long way and in turn a Leo individual can have respect for these superiors if they are motivated and success is part of their story.

 

Many Leo individuals are dynamic and energetic in their approach to life. They want to experience and live. They have a strong need to be part of any experience as they are not a spectator. Live and let live might be one of their slogans and failure is not an option. If you hurt a Leo, they will forgive but they will not forget. Hurt runs deep as they are ruled by their heart.

 

When in love they love with all their heart and their affection can run deep. They may have many suitors and those that are meek or timid are often drawn to Leo. Leo are a force to be recon with and there is very little that is halfway about them. As a friend they can be very loyal and their manners are considered stately. Leo is the lion, king of the jungle.

 

Those with their Sun in the later degrees of Leo may find this year that they may have had to make many adjustments and it will not have been easy. They have their Sun quincunx to both Pluto which speaks to the lessons of power and non-conformity and Neptune which has to do with degrees of vagueness and uncertainty. The placement of these two transiting planets will define the areas of life which are being activated.

 

Saturn has also been in opposition to those with their Sun in Leo in the early to mid-degrees. Oppositions always speak of others having an impact in what is taking place and Saturn although restrictive and known as the teacher, does insist on lessons that over time bring more solid ground often after some challenging conditions. In many cases we can certainly look to Covid for some of these conditions, although due to the challenging conditions from these outer planets Leo may have had a more difficult time than most.

 

Happy solar return to all Leo individuals.

REALIZE YOUR DREAMS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 20, 2021 at 7:45 AM Comments comments ()

It is time to make your dreams come true!

 

How often do we squander precious time waiting for the right moment to act?

 

How do we know when the time is right?

 

Perhaps now is the time! Now is the time to act on our goals.

 

What are we waiting for?

 

We are the only ones holding us back.

 

Many dreams have been sitting on the shelf. We resist moving forward maybe because of fear of failure. It is better to try and fail than to live our lives with regrets for never trying at all?

 

What we term as failure is simply a lesson to help us adjust our dreams to make them workable. All dreams have the capability of transforming into reality.

 

Forge ahead and if we fail, learn valuable information from the lessons so we can make adjustments and begin again. There is no time like the present. Strive to make our ambitions a reality. Believe!

You and you alone hold the key to your own personal success. It may not unfold as you think it should at times, but at the very least it will unfold; so push on.

 

Occasionally life drops opportunities in our lap. More often than not, however, we must become the orchestrater of action but not without stepping into the unknown.

 

You can do it. Believe!!

PLUTO RETROGRADE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 19, 2021 at 7:55 AM Comments comments ()

Transiting Pluto is currently in retrograde and has been since April 27, 2021. It will remain in retrograde motion until October 5, 2021. Pluto moves only 2 degrees from 26 to 24 Capricorn while retrograde. If you have planets within 5 degrees of its position, you will be influenced by Pluto’s retrograde cycle. The Conjunction, Opposition and Square have the greatest impact and the closer any planet or angle is to being direct to 24-26 degrees the stronger the impact will be.

 

Pluto moves in and out of retrograde several times each year. It remains in retrograde for approximately 150 days a year, often lasting for several months at a time.

 

Transiting Pluto is a powerhouse in the horoscope, and it intensifies in strength when it makes aspects to planets and points in the natal chart or the progressed chart. The orb for influence in the transit of Pluto can be felt for those with a strong sensitivity up to 5 degrees while approaching (0 degrees being direct) and 2 degrees separating (after being direct and moving away). While in progression, it is most significant when it comes within 15 minutes of being direct.

 

When Pluto moves into the retrograde motion, it intensifies and becomes very powerful. The transformational abilities linked to Pluto increase and the regenerative abilities are enhanced. Any power struggles can also become much more apparent when Pluto is in retrograde, so it is wise to avoid interaction that could lead to intense situations, especially if linked somehow to the planet Mars or Uranus.

 

It may be very challenging to avoid situations that require change especially when Pluto transits a planet while in retrograde. It could be considered a time for cleansing and to release any worn out or outdated attitudes. It is as though you are addressing a list of things to do that was written last year. It is wise to review and remove those items that no longer apply and add more important requirements that are relevant for today.

 

Retrograde motion is a good time for inner study and to dig up issues that have been buried for too long. Initially, what you find may not be pleasant, but these need to be confronted and dealt with. Any patterns in your life that have reached a state of uncontrolled insistence are best addressed and dealt with now (usually on a permanent basis).

 

Much (as always) depends on which house Pluto is transiting and also the house that Pluto is located in within the natal chart, as these will be areas of life that will undergo Pluto’s transformative energies. You may be forced to challenge any issues you dig up and bring to the surface.

 

An example might be communicative challenges if transiting Pluto is moving through the third house or if natal Pluto resides in this house. Also, you should look to see where Pluto’s ruling sign (Scorpio) is found as this will also indicate where these changing conditions might become apparent.

 

Those with Pluto retrograde at birth are known to have great recuperative abilities and they can withstand illnesses that might be considered debilitating for many others.

 

We would suggest that you review how Pluto is aspected in the natal chart. Also review the aspects linked to the planets that transiting Pluto is making aspects to during its cycle to get a feel for how these areas of life along with the energies associated with the planets involved will affect the overall conditions of this very significant transit of Pluto.

 

In general, it is a good time to get in touch with any issues that need dealing with or cleansing. Review what your inner needs may be. It is a time for inner reflection. Transformations often take up to a year or two to unfold.

 

On an outer level, it is also a good time to begin exercise programs and detoxifying diet that helps cleanse the body, but do not forget your spiritual needs as well. Enjoy these rather intense transformations that often takes place as Pluto moves into direct and retrograde motion affecting planetary links and important positions in your birth chart.

TRANSITING SATURN RETROGRADE THROUGH THE HOUSES

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 16, 2021 at 7:25 AM Comments comments ()

Saturn turned retrograde on May 21, 2021. During its retrograde cycle, it will move from 13 degrees Aquarius and backtrack down to 6 degrees Aquarius and then return to direct motion on October 11, 2021. Saturn in retrograde is said to work much more favourably than while in its direct motion. We will touch on several placements of transiting Saturn through the houses and aspecting angles in this post.

 

Saturn in the tenth house speaks strongly of opportunities with career and personal status.

 

Saturn in the second speaks of extra income and opportunities to establish yourself which in turn provides a greater feeling of satisfaction and security.

 

Saturn in the sixth reflects personal changes in the work environment and with co-workers. In some cases, you can seek out help from those who you work with if this is a requirement.

 

If you find Saturn while in retrograde passing over your Ascendant or moving through the first house, this can be a time of personal improvement and establishing yourself by how you represent yourself to the public. Saturn in retrograde passing over the Ascendant could be a time to join an exercise program and focus on your body. Saturn moving over the Ascendant (the health center) in direct motion can indicate struggles in health-related matters. Other factors, however, must be in place for this to have any real profound effects.

 

If Saturn is going through the seventh this can be a time for self-improvement and can have effects on your marriage and with close personal relationships and even business partnership. You can have a serious approach to what needs to be done and how to go about this. Saturn is always serious and there are no halfway measures about what it asks you to do. See this as an opportunity, a time to improve conditions and rid yourself of anything unwanted. Saturn passes over the IC will have a strong effect on its own, but if you have other planets in this house, Saturn, as it passes over them, will be influenced by their energies too.

 

If Saturn is moving through the third house this might be a time for study and making changes to your everyday activities. Perhaps higher education is on the agenda, especially if the ninth house is involved too. Listen carefully to what your mind is telling you and abide by it. This time can have profound effects down the road and what you do now can make a difference later on.

 

If Saturn is moving through the fifth house or affecting the fifth house by aspect, this might be a time to tighten up your relationship with your lover. It may be a time to move to the next level or if the relationship is poor and cannot be repaired perhaps this is the time to let go and move on. Your children being part of the fifth house influence may be an area of focus and perhaps you might want to lighten up on them; give them more breathing room. Sometimes they need to learn from their own mistakes. Saturn is the greatest teacher although the lessons brought forth may not be that enjoyable.

 

If Saturn is in the eighth house or the twelfth perhaps this is a time for deep inner reflection and relying more on your intuition and learning how to find yourself in a deeper and more profound level of understanding. Saturn in the eighth can also speak of dealings with shared matters including joint finances and this can be a time when you make changes or decide to join forces in order to make your money work better for you. On the contrary, you may want to separate your funds from your partner and become more self-sufficient.

 

Saturn in the eleventh or affecting planets in the eleventh may speak of joining a group of people who are like-minded and share the same or similar interests as you. This may be business-related and affect you in personal terms as time passes. Shared interest groups can help in many areas, and it is never too late to join.

 

These are simple indicators. Life runs much deeper, but this provides you with insight on how to use Saturn in a positive sense especially while in its retrograde cycle.

CHANGE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 15, 2021 at 7:30 AM Comments comments ()

Sometimes the best-laid plans will go awry and because we do not always travel the path we prefer, we react to life and forget purpose. These reactions create stress and if we continue to fight the process, we become lost in the “what if’s” and “why me’s”. These feeling and thoughts can leave us quite depleted and without direction. This is a temporary state of affairs, however, and will also pass if we allow ourselves to let go and move into the moment.

 

Nothing in life goes without change. Shifts of consciousness and shifts in circumstance often run hand in hand.

 

Sometimes we have to let go of where we have been to take new paths that can be quite foreign to us. This can be frightening but at the same time very exciting.

 

Take the bull by the horns and move forward. Sometimes we need a little push from life or from others to take that step forward. If we chose to step forward on our own, life just feels easier. Resistance only creates stress

 

We are all capable of moving forward. We just need to recognize this fact and to face our fears.

 

Emotional disruptions more often than not signify the need for change, and we must allow ourselves this freedom to grow and expand. Step out of the confinement of complacency and/or familiarity. Do not wait for life to dictate that change must take place. It is usually much more pleasant and less disruptive if we take those steps ourselves.

 

This IS your life! Live it to the best of your abilities. Never sell yourself short.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT THE ASCENDANT IN ASTROLOGY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 14, 2021 at 7:35 AM Comments comments ()

If you have a Taurus Ascendant sign around 12 to 15 degrees, transiting Uranus has been stirring up matters. Transiting Uranus has a powerful effect on us, and its energies often are felt as far away as 5 degrees while approaching our Ascendant and continues to have an influence as much as 2-3 degrees separating. Normally when it reaches our Ascendant within a few minutes approaching (60 minutes in one degree of orb) there is often something that happens in our lives that correlates with the action and intent of Uranus. When trying to decipher a rectified birth time, Uranus along with transiting Mars as well as the Sun and the progressed Moon will help to further identify the actual birth time. If Mars is also making an aspect which corresponds with Uranus, it is especially powerful and often an incident will occur.

 

Look at your birth chart to see where Uranus is located by sign and house as well as its overall condition by aspects to other planets to get a clearer picture as to what might be involved.

 

Uranus is known as the awakener and its influence often presents us with new and different approaches. Uranus calls for objective viewing of our life’s circumstances particularly our relationships when it is connected to the Ascendant and demands that we analyse these conditions. If these relationships no longer serve an evolutionary purpose, Uranus often pushes us in directions that could terminate these relationships. If the relationship is strong, it will go through a time of awakening. Both parties will usually have to make changes to not only themselves but also change for their mate. If we choose to follow these energies, the relationship, although altered, will grow stronger, refreshed and able to withstand life’s lessons with more vigor.

 

Uranus is often found to activate conditions in life when there is a need for change or a want to break free. Its actions are often out of our control and any resistance to the required change often results in forcible action from outside forces in a more vigorous manner than if we initiated the changes ourselves. This is not to say that we should fear Uranus when it activates areas of our chart, only that we should be ready for the unexpected and that change is pending.

 

Anything in life that has gone stale or offers little in the line of growth will come under scrutiny during this period. Pay particular attention to the house placement of Uranus in your natal chart as this is an area that will undoubtedly be affected.

 

Be ready for a change in your life which will affect many areas of life. As you have been feeling its effects, you are somewhat prepared for this to occur, but when it happens it will happen out of the blue, without any warning. Expect the unexpected.

 

It should be pointed out that Uranus provides change that is very constructive and although this period may have several upheavals and unexpected incidents, the outcome will be well-worth the turmoil. Allow at least 3-6 degrees past the Ascendant degree to fully comprehend what has taken place and take in the energy with open arms as exciting times are at hand. Change should be welcomed as it is directly linked to your evolution.

PERSONAL RESPONSE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 13, 2021 at 7:40 AM Comments comments ()

There are times in life when the signals get crossed and our judgements can be clouded. This could pertain to many of life’s issues and even our judgement of others which we unfortunately form from lack of information or by misinterpreting events.

 

I am sure you have heard it said that we should never judge others unless we have walked a mile in their shoes. We will never be aware of their full life’s circumstances and will never be able to understand their life’s experiences from where we are standing.

 

We can never imagine someone else’s elation or their sorrow.

 

Frequently early childhood experiences set the stage for our response to events and people. Physical and emotional abuse, alcoholism, or drug abuse by loved ones for example leave lasting consequences. Each of us has core reasons for our behavior. Even a hard day at work or challenging conditions with the children can influence the way we respond to events throughout our day. With this in mind, how can we possibly judge others on their reactions or responses?

 

Make an effort to study our own personal responses to events. These are the actions that we have control over and can change if need be. Our expectations of others are truly unrealistic and simply set us up for disappointment and anguish. If we cannot control our own responses at times, how can we place expectations on others?

 

If you are looking for compassion and understanding from others, set that example but without expectation. Your own reaction to events either stirs up more of what it is you do not want, or it can start a new focus of love and forgiveness.

 

Our reaction to life events and our interaction with others is a personal choice. We have the option of making a decision that provides positive outcomes or positive alternatives under any conditions. The next time we experience ego interference, stop for a moment. Offer energy conducive to support, peace and enlightenment. They in turn can use this positive reaction to assist in lifting themselves out of their place of confusion or frustration.

 

If our offering is not utilized and this person continues on their own stressful path; do not judge. Send love their way; turn away and remove yourself from their choices. Their actions are their choice; your reactions are yours.

 

Bring this awareness to the surface and realize your true purpose.

 

“To love a man enough to help him, you have to forfeit the warm, self-righteous glow that comes from judging.” ― Ron Hall

TRANSITING NEPTUNE SQUARE NATAL VENUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 12, 2021 at 10:10 AM Comments comments ()

Transiting Neptune has a veil of uncertainty attached to its energies. Neptune, especially in challenging aspect has some vagueness to it. It can make things very unclear or uncertain and can leave us in a bit of a fog.

 

Neptune’s energies suggest that we go beneath the surface and uncover the truth of the situation or our current life’s conditions.

 

Neptune in transit has a psychic or intuitive flavour to it; and in many cases, if we listen closely, we get information that is relayed to us through the unconscious or our sub-conscious mind. Neptune is closely tied to mysticism and spirituality and as we lift that veil of uncertainty, we are guided by forces greater than our mere mortal energies.

 

Venus on the other hand has to do with love and affection and is sometimes tied to the finances. It can also refer to a young female or women in general, but if linked in some way either through transit or natal aspect to Mars, it often has to do with sexual and love connections.

 

The house positions involved will give greater detail into what area of life is involved and as usual, check the natal placement of Neptune and the aspects that natal Venus make in the birth chart.

 

If this connection between transiting Neptune and natal Venus is tied to relationships of significance as indicated by your chart, then there may be some confusion or idealism in this relationship. It may be best to have input by close reliable friends and family as you may not be getting the whole picture, or your mind may be playing games with you.

 

If, for example, transiting Neptune or Venus is tied to the fifth house, this may indicate that a romantic relationship is what this aspect is speaking about. If this is tied to the seventh house, then the marriage may be going through some challenging conditions.

 

Square aspects can be quite aggravating; however, they often force us into action. As we maneuver our way through the obstacles, we eventually uncover the truth and see things as they are. Sometimes we will not get the full picture until Neptune passes out of orb (2 degrees past being direct). If Neptune goes into retrograde and passes over the same position again then there is further work yet to come, but in most cases the first direct alignment is usually the most powerful.

 

Many individuals reading this post may feel somewhat dismayed by what the energies suggesting. However, it should be noted that all aspects over time have the potential for favourable conclusions. One way or another, the truth is revealed, and the veil is removed, and we continue moving in our guided direction. There are no mistakes along the way. In many cases after the fact, we find out that what appeared to be the wrong direction in the moment was actually the best route we could have travelled. It may not be a pleasant experience, but it was what was needed to learn. The lesson at hand was important and we needed to move through this situation in order to locate that needed final outcome.

 

All conditions are favourable on some level regardless of aspect configuration and they are all meant to be. All lessons are for our greater good, even if it does not look or feel that way during the experience. We learn from life and many times we don’t clearly understand the “why” behind events. The outcome may not seem favourable at the time, but the lesson learned is what was important.

CANCER NEW MOON JULY 9, 2021

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 9, 2021 at 7:45 AM Comments comments ()

We will be experiencing the New Moon energy on the 9th of July, 2021, at 9:16 p.m. EDT in the sign of Cancer at 18 degrees. With the New Moon in Cancer and Venus with its conjunction to Mars both in Leo, (Venus at 15 degrees and Mars at 18 degrees both Semi-Sextile to this New Moon positioning), this can suggest the potential for a strong love interest with a highly emotion connected. The Semi-Sextile often speaks of being in the right place at the right time.

 

Since the New Moon’s energies are affiliated with new beginnings and if you have a planet near the 18-degree mark especially by conjunction or opposition then perhaps these energies will apply to you.

 

Are you ready for an exciting relationship?

 

The energy is strong, and the time is ripe for this to take hold. This would be particularly so if the New Moon takes place in your fifth house as this often represents new unions. If this is found in the seventh house perhaps this suggests your relationship will go to a new level.

 

Venus and Mars together often suggest romantic liaisons or in some cases a push to gather oneself and put energy into the finances. Venus speaks of love and affection but can also denote money and valuables. If this is about relationships and if this New Moon is found in your fifth house perhaps this speaks of an addition to the family or a plan to move ahead with this in mind. Leo is often associated with a drive, push or desire to lead rather than follow and love and affection is high on the list.

 

Remember what you begin and set into motion will often rise to fruition during the next Full Moon in the same sign (Cancer) which is in 6 months. The work you do moving forward will have a direct impact on what the harvest will look like. Cancer often relates to family and nurturing, so this New Moon has indicators that often have this in mind. Family may become increasingly important and nurturing and taking care of them may be high on the agenda.

 

Saturn at 11 degrees Aquarius is in opposition to Venus and Mars and this stirs up some potential need for structure and can assist in the building of a solid foundation but only after any necessary work. Others may have a hand in this perhaps opposing what is in force or on the other hand helping push the energy forward. Saturn, however, wants to move slowly and with precision while Mars/Venus in Leo is ready for action. This may create a bit of a dilemma.

 

Uranus at 14 degrees Taurus forms a T-square with Venus/Mars and Saturn. The squares from Venus/Mars and Saturn make this a challenging aspect. Much energy is applied to Uranus which is the planet of change. Disruption may have a say in what is taking place as well. Uranus seeks to remove any obstacles and foster in a much-needed change although it can do so with a degree of abruptness. However what Uranus often seeks is freedom on some level and change that is long past due. You might have had a few kicks along the way pushing you in a new direction and Uranus’ energies are not hindered as it is still in direct motion (Uranus moves into retrograde August 20) suggesting that its energies are currently unobstructed.

 

There is little doubt that those affected by this New Moon will have their hands full and you can anticipate lots of energy pushing you ahead. Lead by your heart, not the mind and follow your intuitive insight.

PRESSURES AND CHOICES

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 8, 2021 at 7:50 AM Comments comments ()

Life often presents us with challenges that seem to steal our focus and somehow manage to stifle our growth or so we think. We are often confronted with what feels like massive, overwhelming tests that come at us from all sides. We are seldom prepared for these events as they come when we least expect them. This is most certainly how it can feel, and our reactions are not always what we want, in hindsight.

 

For some, this seems to be the reoccurring theme in life. When we are faced with adversity and difficult conditions, we often meet these lessons with opposition. We sometimes feel as though we are victims of life, but are we? Are we not actually victims of our reaction to life’s events?

 

Life is going to happen, with or without our consent. We can face life head on and use the events to grow and learn. It is important to recognize these events as not part of us and we cannot own them or make them our own. Far too often, we may meet life’s events with frustration, anger, create a very difficult lesson and feeling as though these lessons are a part of us. We decide to own the events instead of seeing them as a lesson to grow.

With the latter scenario, how will these reactions change what has transpired? What is the benefit of the attitude we have decided to have?

We have a choice on how we deal with adversity. It is also up to us how long we choose to hang on to the events. How much control are you willing to give to these uncontrollable events?

 

This is not to say that we are unaffected by what takes place even if we do not fight the event. This does not mean that we are not emotionally affected by life’s events, nor does it mean that we are cold or unemotional in any way. What it does mean is that life happens, and we have options as to what way we react. There are always choices to be made. We are not at the mercy of these events as many believe. We are always at the helm of our reactions and our emotions. We alone dictate how we will allow ourselves to be affected by each and every event in life.

 

Undesirable events do happen, and they are not by choice, but we have choices as to how we will allow ourselves to be affected. We make those choices whether those decisions are conscious or not. If we choose to analyse our decisions and recognize our part in the process, we learn how to adjust to life’s events rather than becoming victims to them. Being familiar with our past reactions and decision helps us to learn to stop reaction and make clear decisions on how to move forward.

 

Learning to listen to that quite inner guide as it will help us through the process and understanding our reactions and taking control can have lasting effects. These will provide us with the momentum and courage to withstand any pressure that comes from our lessons in life. Stop, process, and then move forward after a controlled decisions. Stand tall in the face of adversity by recognizing the lesson, seeing it as not a part of you but simply a lesson then move forward with that knowledge.

RISING PLANET IN ASTROLOGY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 7, 2021 at 7:40 AM Comments comments ()

In Astrology, when defining a rising planet, we are referring to the distance any natal planet is with regards to the actual Ascendant sign’s position.

 

A planet that is two degrees before the rising sign cusp (in the last 2 degrees of the twelfth house or up to and including 5 degrees after the Ascendant in the first house) is known as a rising planet. The difference between a planet 2 degree before the rising sign (in the 12 house) compared to a planet in the first house would be that the energies of the twelfth house planet have more difficulty expressing themselves compared to a first house planet which can easily express its energies.

 

Both positions, however, deliver a similar meaning as the ruling planet of the Ascendant. To give a couple of examples, the ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter, and the ruling planet of Leo is the Sun. The rising planet gives substance to the energies of the rising sign and tells more about the rising sign. Someone who has a Sagittarius rising sign would also have to look at what house and sign their Jupiter is located in. This would provide a stronger identification to the external expression of the rising sign of Sagittarius. The rising sign is tempered by its ruling Planet.

 

Another example would be someone having Mars closely tied to this Ascendant would use these energies in their self-expression. Mars before the Ascendant by 2 degrees or after within 5 degrees would also express the Mars influence with the rising sign.

 

A planet closely connected to the Ascendant (the closer the connection by degree the stronger its influence) is thought to be even stronger than the actual natural ruling planet of the sign on the Ascendant. This is due to the planet being in an angular position. Someone with a Cancer Ascendant which naturally would be comfortable in a care-giving role would have strong nurturing abilities and be emotionally expressive to others.

 

If, for example, this individual had Mars within 2 degrees of the Ascendant and in the first house (in the twelfth the energies would be a little more difficult to express or they may even try to hide this energy), would have an energetic expressive personality. They would be considered a go getter and would aggressively take on the role as a caregiver and nurturing individual. They would be known as a combatant and often would show an aggressive link to their self-expression. Much would depend on the rising sign’s aspects as well. It has also been noted that in some cases this positioning of Mars being closely tied to the Ascendant indicates that a fight for life in early life was likely.

 

Someone with Jupiter tied to this position of a Cancer Ascendant would express themselves to others in an overly optimistic manner. Many with this in their chart would find that luck and expansion come to them at different intervals in their lives. They would reveal themselves as a nurturing individual with philosophic views on life. Jupiter would expand the emotional nature of Cancer and make these individuals highly sensitive to their environment and quite emotionally expressive.

 

What is the rising planet tied to your Ascendant and how would this define your expression?

ROLLING WITH THE PUNCHES

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 6, 2021 at 7:40 AM Comments comments ()

We all go through periods when we seem to be challenged with issues, and fighting the process as it unfolds seems futile. We sometimes feel pushed to the edge but we can only deal with things the best we can. The battles we wage sometimes create exaggerated issues and we would truly be much further ahead to roll with the punches. There is no way to avoid the lessons we have to learn in life, and at times, we just have to accept what stands before us.

 

Letting go long before our coping abilities have been stretched to their limits seems to be an ability we are reluctant to practice. It is true that many of us learn only at the school of hard knocks. Simply allowing is often the best alternative yet we fight it. This is not a show of weakness or a deliberate act of surrender. It is a true show of faith. If we question our faith in the process, we bitterly hold on until we reach that point that we have no choice but to acknowledgement that no further actions can be taken on our part. Letting go and releasing our energies might be the best course of action available to us.

 

Everything in life has significance. Determining our best approach is important not only for our sanity, but also for our greater good. If we have walked around the situation and viewed it from every angle and there is no satisfactory way to get rid of it, it is time to accept that it is there and climb it or maybe take a new course around it or even see it in its true light. In any case, enjoy the new view. Staying where you are and accomplishing nothing but frustrations serves no purpose.

 

We have at our disposal all the ingredients we need to deal with life’s lessons. With the right frame of mind, we can continue our travels no matter how high the mountain is in front of us. Attitude and expectation mold our reality. We are at the controls even when we let go, for this too is a choice. We can halt our journey and stand in front of the mountain and feel defeated, or we can accept that the mountain is there, plan an alternate route or put on our climbing gear and enjoy the climb. Whether we choose to go around or to climb, we will eventually get to our destination, but if we stand in front of that mountain defeated and angry, we only hurt ourselves and forget to live.

NATAL OR TRANSITING PLUTO CONJUNCT THE MIDHEAVEN

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 5, 2021 at 7:05 AM Comments comments ()

Is Natal or Transiting Pluto conjunct the Midheaven (MC) in your chart?

 

Pluto on the Midheaven at birth suggests an individual with a powerful presence especially in the working environment. They will have the ability to transform the working environment not only for themselves but also for those that they either work for or work with. This position speaks of leadership and the changes that can take place in this person’s life when they transform working conditions and regenerate this area of their life.

 

There may be some struggles with personal wills when it comes to moving forward with their objectives, but any challenges will facilitate changes required to further the evolution of the individual in question. The actual process would be very deep and would describe changes and transformations on a fairly constant basis. Any changes that do take place will be permanent in nature. There would be no half measures with this ongoing process and are often life altering. This ongoing process however must be stimulated by other transiting planets to this position.

 

This is a position of regeneration of the life goals. This individual would gain recognition for their efforts with uncovering integral internal changes, but these changes would usually require some participation from others especially if an opposition is part of the picture. These individuals may find that there is some opposition to their efforts by their superiors and the best route to follow is one where the ego stays in the background. The individuals with this aspect may have an approach which might be quite aggressive, and this might also stand in the way of progress but standing in the shadows is not what these individuals are meant to do either.

 

Much of their approach depends on the astrological sign involved. For example, if Pluto is in Virgo, regardless of this aspect, this generation of individuals would proceed in a meticulous fashion, digging up material that needs alterations and strategic changes. With a Virgo influence this would take place in a very organized manner. Everything will have its place and their presentation would be accurate and detailed. The Pluto Virgo individuals operate in a very orderly manner with expertise.

 

Those with say Pluto in Scorpio may work below the radar and do things in a much more subtle manner. They would go deep into what needs transformation and challenge tradition. If they have this aspect, they will make suggestions on how the company would best work under most any condition. They would be more subtle in their approach but have an impact that would not go unnoticed. Their approach would be intense and very complete. Pluto Scorpio individuals would bring things to the surface that others may not even have noticed or dared to bring to the surface. They may be more of the quiet type, depending on the sign on the Ascendant, but would present an image of know-how and people would notice their presence.

 

When transiting Pluto is residing on the Midheaven, this period speaks of transformation in the working environment but often more with the actual occupation or life status. Depending on the overall conditions in the individual’s chart, there would be powerful influences taking place that may involve disruptions and major changes to take place. There may be disruptions with people in power or authority and difficulties simply based on varying opinions. The changes that would take place could open doors for new positions of authority and may offer an opportunity to move up the corporate ladder into a management position. There may also be major changes affecting the career, life status, goals and aspirations and objectives.

 

Pluto will uncover anything that needs to be transformed into a higher state. This is done in order to move forward regardless of obstruction. Pluto will facilitate change on one level or another.

TRANSITING NEPTUNE CONJUNCT DC

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on July 2, 2021 at 10:15 AM Comments comments ()

In June Neptune in the sign of Pisces went retrograde June 25, 2021,, Neptune retrograde energies are not fully released or expressed.

 

Neptune while in its direct motion can be quite spiritual, even aspirational; and if positively aspected, these qualities are brought forth. Neptune is mystical, inspirational and can be revealing in these qualities. In its more negative expression, Neptune can be illusive, making life situations foggy and unclear and the path ahead may be uncertain.

 

When Neptune is conjunct the DC, it is in opposition to the Ascendant. The conjunction aspect is always the most powerful especially if connected to another planet as well as with any angle. The DC relates to important relationships particularly the partner and it is also associated with business partners. Sometimes there are legalities associated with this placement, but in general it has to do with the marriage partner or business associates.

 

While in direct motion, Neptune (when speaking in terms of a marriage partnership) can indicate a rather magical, inspirational, and mystical alignment. You may view your partner through rose coloured glasses and idealize what this relationship holds most prominent. This could be factual but when Neptune goes into retrograde and in connection to your Descendant, make sure you are seeing things clearly. You may start to question the relationship or be unclear about its true condition.

 

Currently we are under a lot of stress due to the pandemic, and it will be important to recognize this energy if the relationship seems to be heading in the wrong direction. Outer stress can magnify issues even if we feel we are accustomed to this current situation.

 

You might want to ask yourself how was the relationship prior to the pandemic and is the current financial situation is due to the pandemic? What has been learned from this experience up to this point and how will you move forward as things return to some form of new normalcy?

 

If the relationship was strong prior to this time, perhaps you will need to take into consideration these influences. What is taking place in your life now? Recognize that the issues surrounding life may be putting a dampener or stress on your relationship. These stressed feelings, however, will likely be temporary unless you have felt this way for a long time. Sometimes it is best to wait for the transiting planet to return to direct before making any important decisions. Neptune returns to direct motion in early December, 2021.

 

Is this too long to wait? Are you comfortable with the decisions that you have in place now? You might want to ask yourself these questions.

 

You may get much feedback from your partner and if you listen closely, with a clear mind, you might see how things really are. With this clear vision, you may be able to see where the future will take you. You may be going through changes due to what is taking place with your partner and what is taking place in the world around you. Quite often those without the impact of Neptune retrograde affecting their chart will see things more clearly. It will also be important for you to see how Neptune is aspected in the natal chart as well as what aspects transiting Neptune is making to others parts of your chart. This gives you a much clearer idea of what is being affected and what areas of life are part of the process. You always have to check the full charts.

 

It is advised that you take a deep breath and mediate on life and your current situation. Take the time to recognize the facts and perhaps that magic that you experienced is actually real. If not, then perhaps you need to think in terms of what you can do to make things better.

 

Do not expect change from your partner and if you look at things from a realistic perspective and make the necessary changes, your partner may follow your example.

 

Allow time for Neptune to go direct again before making any rash decisions. There is plenty of time to review things and there is nothing wrong with asking those that you trust to assist in this process.

 

What you saw before Neptune went retrograde may be more reliable than what goes through your head now that Neptune is retrograde. We have to remember that other indicators in our personal chart may be pointing in a different direction, and we always have to take into consideration all the aspects in place along with the natal potential during any one specific transiting aspect. A full report on the nature of the elements in play has to be considered before reaching clear and viable conclusions.

TRANSITING JUPITER CONJUNCT NATAL MERCURY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 30, 2021 at 7:40 AM Comments comments ()

Mercury is the planet of the mind. It speaks of our communication techniques which are defined by the astrological sign Mercury is in within our birth chart. The house location also provides further information. The angles or aspects to Mercury will define how challenging or how proficient the mind operates.

 

The Square aspect may suggest challenging conditions, but these natal aspects can be used to intensify the mind’s focus especially if Saturn or Pluto is part of the process. If Uranus is part of the equation its energies can add a flair of uniqueness. The squares, although often indicating lessons, can always be confronted, and dealt with accordingly over time. Mental illness and concentration issues can also be defined by Mercury’s condition. Much depends on the overall condition of Mercury as well as the rest of the chart’s energies. At times Neptune can indicate challenging conditions and at other times it speaks of insight and intuitive perceptions.

 

When Mercury is conjuncted by transiting Jupiter there is an emphasis on the mental processing and often the ability to expand on certain teachings. Much will depend on the sign Mercury is in as well as the house of the conjunction. In general, however, subjects such as religion, spirituality and philosophy can become activating forces of this individual’s focus during this transiting aspect. Jupiter has a tendency to expand on things and pushes for higher learning often through life’s experience, and Mercury will take on these energies and use them to propel its energies.

 

Mercury is a neutral planet and actually needs something to stimulate it into action. It comes to life when it is activated by transit or progression.

 

The attitude can be changed significantly as Mercury is touched by Jupiter, and Jupiter’s involvement will help to foster a positive attitude and a general feeling of good fortune into everyday life. The mind is ready to learn and grow through these energies. Anyone with these energies may also be quite willing to share this information with others, especially if Mercury is in the sign of Gemini, Sagittarius, or Leo. The thinking and sharing of thoughts may be a little recluse if Mercury is in the sign of Capricorn, or even Virgo and sometimes Scorpio, but many individuals will feel wide open to the teachings available under the influence of this aspect.

 

Verify which house Jupiter resides in within the natal chart. This will also be an area of life that will be affected by open-minded concepts.

 

Take advantage of these energies by perhaps learning new teachings or returning to school. If you have these energies activated in your chart, you may wish to travel abroad to gain experience and in so doing, gain understanding of other cultures. Long distance travel whether in the mind or physically are often by-products of transiting Jupiter conjunct natal Mercury.

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO THIS SITUATION?

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 29, 2021 at 7:40 AM Comments comments ()

There certainly seems to be a division between two different paths of thinking with our current pandemic. There are individuals who believe that all that is transpiring is a conspiracy that threatens mankind’s way of life. The government is dictating to us and that the masses are being herded like sheep around a virus which is no more than the common yearly flu. On the other side of the road there are individuals who honour the rules put in place as a means to protect themselves from a virus which they believe is a threat to mankind as a whole.

 

No matter what you beliefs are, it is imperative that you do not get caught up in the fear mongering from either side. Living in stress and fear can create depression and the feeling of having little control in what is being manifested in our lives.

 

Some individuals have expressed they constantly worry and experience anxiety over the fact that they may become sick and pass. Some individuals have expressed the fear of repression and will take their chances with the virus to rally against the government and their underhanded plans. Unfortunately both sides can be extreme in their thinking and it is creating a divide amongst the masses.

 

We can honour each other and allow. Respect always has its place. Living in gratitude for whatever we have in our lives honours our existence. Honouring our differences is what eliminates fear, depression, emotional and mental fatigue, anxiety and the list goes on. These are the enemy.

 

Is this pandemic a wakeup call to take a second look at how we are living our lives?

 

If our beliefs cannot hold up under the stress of our current situation than these beliefs are not viable.

 

Maybe we have been afforded the opportunity to make a difference through love and caring.

 

So many people are stepping up to make a difference. Celebrities are offering free concerts and fundraisers from the safety of their homes. Horse owners are visiting retirement and nursing homes with their horses to cheer those living there. In many ways, many people are placing themselves second to the needs of those around them and living their life with great passion and concern for others. They believe that the greatest lessons come from adversity and do not struggle with what might be. They live for today and do what they can to help others. They are the examples for others to step up and through love walk through this difficult lesson.

 

Do not allow yourself to swept away with fear. The healthy alternative is to live with acts of love and compassion.

SUN IN CANCER JUNE 20, 2021

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 28, 2021 at 7:20 AM Comments comments ()

We apologize for being so late with our Cancer post, but we were on holidays last week.

 

Cancer is a cardinal, water sign offering those with this free-flowing Sun sign, the push to succeed particularly when it comes to nurturing and caring for those that they love.

 

Cancer individuals are emotional and sensitive and genuinely care about the welfare of others, especially family.

 

Many with strong emphasis in the Sign of Cancer (or fourth house) have a difficult time separating their feelings from their thoughts. They feel what they think, and this unique insight can often lead to the opening of channels to intuition and psychic perception, as these gifts are generally not part of the intellect.

 

With strong emotional ties to their personality, Cancer individuals are usually known for their gentleness and tranquil nature. Do not be fooled by perhaps their standoffish manner especially when ridiculed or when they feel attacked emotionally for there is a lot that goes on beneath the surface with these individuals.

 

The sensitivity that is so inherent within this group of unique individuals can become their greatest asset as time passes or become their weakest element in their psyche if self-expression is hindered.

 

Currently, those individuals with their Sun sign in and around the 25-degree Cancer (allow an orb of 5 degrees on either side, so 20-to-29-degree Cancer) have an opposition to Pluto in their birth chart. As of June 22, 2021, transiting Pluto was at 26 degrees and 09 minutes in the sign of Capricorn. The closer transiting Pluto moves to forming a direct opposition to your Cancer Sun, the stronger the energies become. Those with their Sun in earlier or later degrees of Cancer will have to check an ephemeris for dates when this opposition was direct or is going to be direct in their charts.

 

Pluto’s energies focus on transformations and the need to uprooting due to required change. Often the changes that come to pass are permanent in their nature and what once was will no longer exist. These will be a thing of the past. These changes can be personal and stem from delving deep within to uncover anything that needs to surface or be faced. This can involve relationships of significance, working conditions, health regiments, children, spiritual enlightenment, finances, security issues and self-undoing just to name a few. Much will depend on the areas of life involvement which is defined by the house positions affected in your personal astrology chart.

 

Oppositions often involve others and frequently this aspect speak in terms of actions taken by others which force change and/or disruption upon you. This is not to say that you have nothing to do with what might be transpiring, but often the instigators stem from other people or outside influences. This can be quite disruptive but when the energies finally complete their cycle which is usually when transiting Pluto is at least 2 degrees past being direct and completely finished its contact (retrograde motion can bring back the issue), then life settles, and the changes put in place can be viewed from a different perspective than when we are caught up in the transition.

 

The energies of this transit from Pluto to the Cancer Sun are long lasting, often challenging, life changing and often permanent in nature. People need to make significant alterations to the situation at hand and stick with what they are aiming to put in place. If you become complacent or try to avoid the needed changes, outside influences seem to step in and alter life’s course so that things line up the way they should with or without your assistance.

 

Be ready for transformation, regeneration, and resolution over a period of time. Acknowledge that the changes set in place are always for your greater good, even when it does not appear that way in the beginning. This change is necessary and are beneficial over the long haul.
