INTUITION

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 10, 2019 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Intuitive guidance can be useful at any time if we are open to receiving the messages. There are no prerequisites to being intuitive.

 

Intuition could be called the hearing, the seeing, the smell, the feeling, the tasting or the understanding. In most cases, intuition is subtle yet in other cases it can be quite clear and concise. The later are the times we cannot question its validity.

 

Intuition can come as a warning or it can contain needed information; whichever it is, it can be counted on. It provides insight when we cannot find the answers with our rational minds.

 

Intuition is available when we need it the most if we quiet our babbling minds. Intuition is a profound tool at our disposal, although it is rarely forceful. We can utilize the information in whatever form it comes to us or we can allow it to pass us by either by choice or due to lack of focus.

 

The mind will continually question information obtained intuitively. It will question this information’s validity most always. We will instinctively know or feel that the information we receive is truth. Our gut will tell us so. Oh, but that doubting mind!

 

Sometimes we can be so wrapped up in events that the information goes by with little notice and we will recall, after the event is over, the information that was available to us. It is then that we wish we had listened to that “hunch”.

 

When the situation is dangerous, intuition can be anything but subtle. The message can be very profound. The more we pay attention to our intuition, the clearer the messages will become and the easier it is to recognize the importance of the information we are receiving.

 

Intuition is our guide. It stems from our higher self and it is always reliable.

 

Intuition is our forever guiding companion.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT NATAL MOON

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 9, 2019 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)


Before we go into the definition of this aspect, it is important that you review the placement of Transiting Uranus as well as where the Moon is placed in your own personal natal chart. These will be the areas of life that are affected by this transit. The conjunction does not necessarily have to have negative effects if there is positive aspects between these two bodies in the natal chart, or if the Moon is very well aspected in the birth chart.


 

The transit between the Moon and Uranus does suggest some change on an emotional level that can be quite disruptive, particularly if you have been following a ridged emotional pattern where you have not allowed your emotions to be released or expressed. Any restrictive behaviour in terms of how you have been handling life from an emotional perspective is now subject to reckless and possible impulsive behaviour. Your mood can vary considerably under this transit, and you might find your emotions very hard to control.


 

Incidents involving women, particularly your Mother, can come under attack during this aspect. Things intensify and your relationship may go through some struggles, or changes may come suddenly out of nowhere. Sometimes you are the one orchestrating these behaviours, and other times it may stem from others. This can involve women in general and in the case of men with this conjunction, they may find that they are attracted to women that may be eccentric or original in their behaviour, particularly if Uranus is conjunct Venus in the natal chart or if it is found in the seventh house. Sometimes these women come into your life to help you move forward in ways that you may have been stagnating previous to this time. Other times they are just disruptive and cause trouble to the normal routine, although things may have felt rather dull before this conjunction but they will certainly not feel that way now.


 

The Moon has to do with your emotional response and your emotional needs. If you are supported in your life and you have been nurtured especially when you were young, your emotional expression would relay this to the outside world. You may be nurturing yourself and want to look after others and play a mother role or a nurturer for them.


 

If, however, your emotional upbringing was anything but smooth, you may have difficulties expressing your more sensitive side, especially if you have other factors in your chart suggesting this, such as strong Capricorn tendencies. Things may change during this transit and you may have to deal with either being taken advantage of, or you may not respond well in emotional ways. Change is what Uranus’ energies are about--required change and also freedom of expression. If these have been hindered, this may be the time for such things to be reviewed and changed.


 

The Moon also has to do with your domestic life. This could include your actual home or if you own property, your real estate might be subject to change such as a move or making changes within the home’s environment. Some look for cottage property and some just do some remodeling to make their environment more comfortable.


 

Watch for being too impulsive at this time. Above all else, this is a time to truly get in touch with your feelings.

THE MODALITIES IN SYNASTRY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 6, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


We discussed Synastry in our post on November 20, 2019. Today we are going to go a little deeper. As we discussed, Synastry is a comparison chart of two individuals. It looks into the aspects between planets and points in the two natal charts. But we also need to look into the modalities between these individuals to get a clearer understanding of how these individuals relate with one another.


 

The modalities are Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable.


 

The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Because Cardinal signs are known for being active, ambitious and have a wish to be involved in what is taking place, they are known for being motivated. Strong Cardinal individuals are usually quite strong in their beliefs and will argue points when they deem it necessity. They will not sit back uninvolved and therefore may be involved in arguments and disruptions. If both parties have strong Cardinal energy in their charts, together they can be involved in a somewhat stormy relationship.


 

The Fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.


 

Fixed individuals tend to be just that, fixed. They can be fixed in their opinions and are not easily swayed. They can be resolute, persistent and are also known for having strong wills. As a result, these individuals tend to not be very flexible. Sometimes they feel the need to speak their truth but other times they do not feel the need to prove that they are right. They recognize that it is not important to sway others into what they believe. Some Fixed individuals however may push their beliefs due to their persistence. In relationships where there are many combinations of the fixed signs, there can be a somewhat standoffish attitude as they refuse to be pushed or pressured into things.


 

The Mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Mutable individuals tend to be flexible, versatile and somewhat flighty. Although they are adaptable and restless, they can also be moody and not satisfied with things for any extended period of time. They need versatility and change in life and therefore are not always reliable. In some cases a relationship with these individuals can feel as though they are overly picky as they seem to see all the little flaws in the flow of the connection. There are likely to be many ups and downs with this connection, although it really does not matter which modality you are talking about, as, any shortcomings can be rectified if both partners are willing to do work to make it work.

POWER IN NUMBERS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 5, 2019 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


 

Are you affected deeply by world conditions and the challenging situations currently taking place?


 

Some find it difficult to stay centered as a result of current world events.


 

I have heard individuals question where humanity is heading. Hate crimes do not seem to be decreasing. Racial discrimination, which we would expect to be disappearing, appears in some areas to be on the increase. Some tell us that global warming and other conditions cause worry and they are concerned we are going to reach the point of no return.


 

We have to question if news and social media feeds into these fears with their continued repetitive coverage. Would it balance out if there were equal coverage of stories based on balance, love and respect because these too are abundant? Unfortunately, we are told these don’t generate high numbers of viewers and today everything is about the “numbers”.


 

It is important to remain diligent in our efforts for world peace especially during time of unrest and world healing.


 

It certainly is much easier to remain calm and spread peace when life itself is calm but our example of peace and love is far more important in the face of unrest. Transformations can be challenging and change does not come without certain hardships and hurdles because there is always resistance. The hard lessons always seem to be the most valuable lessons.


 

There are many working tirelessly in some manner or another towards peace, and there certainly is power in numbers. No matter our race, religion, monetary value, beliefs, etc, we are one…each a part of the integral whole. To cast anyone aside is to cast aside a part of self. Each of us is a fundamental part of the whole puzzle.


 

We are souls, have a material experience. Our time here is temporary. Do not squander this time. We CAN create peace and experience love. It is part of our journey if we allow it to be.


 

Stand strong but stand together. Facilitate action by being action. Let the love within radiate out. These will certainly have a ripple effect.

PLUTO IN TRANSIT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 4, 2019 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)


 

Pluto’s abilities to transform and regenerate are highlighted as it travels through the birth chart. There is nothing subtle about Pluto’s influence and you will be quite aware that something needs to be changed or altering when Pluto’s influence is activated. Pluto’s energies are abrupt and disruptive and the changes that Pluto will put on the table need to be addressed and then transformed so that you fit life and its current state more appropriately. When Pluto is finished transiting through a house or linking up with a planetary placement, its energies will have significantly changed things and usually in a very permanent manner.


 

Pluto is sometimes associated with physical death and is usually activated in the chart in some way when someone in our lives passes over. When activated, most times, it does not always mean literal death, but it does mean that a condition or life element is no longer suitable for you and needs to end in order to bring the birth of something new into existence. Therefore, Pluto does signify the death or end of a situation and then the beginning of something new. Pluto, as mentioned, is not subtle in its release and sometimes you have opportunities to make these changes and other times, they just happen with little or no control from you.


 

If Pluto links up with Mars or Uranus, you actually need to be careful and make sure that you do not put yourself in a dangerous situation. If you have a square between these planets there will be challenging conditions and they come at you for a reason. You will have to watch for arguments and aggressive behaviour especially if Mars is connected and particularly if the aspect is an opposition. The trine and sextile are not as aggressive and usually suggest transformation at a higher level. Although somewhat challenging to accept, the energies resulting from the trine and sextile will benefit you in the long haul.


 

Uranus is more unpredictable and this is the one you need to watch out for when it is aspecting Pluto . You will have to be attentive when, for example, driving a motorized vehicle. Operate any time of machinery or equipment with more care than normal and never rush. Do not go out and drive in fits of anger either. Take the time to settle yourself down before driving.


 

If you are confronted by an aggressive individual, do not put up a fight unless you have no choice. Whenever possible, walk away from confrontation during such aspects.


 

These examples are extreme cases and will also involve other planets making aspects that suggest the same before such energies will be released in such a powerful way. There needs to be at least 3 aspects in a chart, each saying the same thing, before events such as these will take place and much depends on the other planets involved and the angles they are making. I would be remiss if I did not mention this however.


 

The aspects to Pluto can be rather tumultuous experiences, but you will learn a lot from them.


 

In general, we learn much more from adverse life conditions than the mild, easy flow experiences. The standout experiences seem to be our natural way of learning. We will have to spend a little time meditating on how the energies can be released in a more gentle yet positive manner.

A FOOT IN THE DOOR

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 3, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


Sometimes, we stand at the proverbial threshold and are hesitant to take a step through.


 

Why? Something holds us back and as a result, we are held in a state of limbo. Is it due to our frame of mind? Could it be our belief structures?


 

Do we have a hard time moving beyond limiting visions? Does this result from fear?


 

What can we do for ourselves or for others who have opened the door but are reluctant to step through?


 

It can be difficult to watch someone we love resist their journey. We cannot actually do anything to help them move forward as this is solely their decision and choice. Most of us wish to help others with their struggles; however, the issue cannot be resolved by us....it does not sit with us; it rests with them.


 

In the pursuit of spiritual growth, we have to allow others to experience their own journey. Pushing them, if they are not ready to take that step, may only hinders their progress. Each individual, in their own journey, must be in an attitude of allowing before they can make their own personal moves. We can remind them of ego and the fight to gain control of their thoughts and attitudes, but progress can only come from their own efforts.


 

When people are influenced by ego, they usually are not aware of it or the choices available to move beyond ego. Most people “own” the voice within that tells them they are not worthy, they are stupid, and they are useless. They do not realize that this is not who they are. Making people aware of ego can be a touchy subject. Our suggestions must come from genuine caring, from the heart without any involvement from our own ego.


 

We must remind ourselves that everyone moves at their own speed. Rather than focus our sights on where others are progressing with their journey, we will do far better by focusing on where we are in our own personal journey. Be the light that brightens the path. When we are in touch with our true nature the only thing that shines forth is truth. When truth lights our path, we do not even have to explain what it is that might help others. The information will be obvious for those ready to see.


 

One tiny step over the threshold may feel like a hundred. The information and understanding coming to us can feel so intense that where we once stood (one step back) has been left behind permanently. We would never want to return to ego’s control and the confusion it created. Each step forward brings further enlightenment. This is a feeling, a knowing. It is not just information nor is it simply understanding. (Beware of ego, however, for it is not gone and may even try harder to gain control because it is threatened.)


 

If you are asked, it is fine to remind others of what is buried deep within. Our prime focus should be personal which in turn will brilliantly light the path for us personally but also for others.


May you experience the knowing and may it perpetually expand.

SOLAR ARC

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 2, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


 

When using progressions or reviewing the progressed chart, the Sun moves approximately one degree per year. Progressions use the formula of one day is equal to one year of life. So when someone is 30 and they are born on December 1, 1950, then on December 30 1950, they are experiencing their 30th year with the progressed sun. This is not exact, although very close. Much depends on what is referred to as ascension. Those born from October to March will be very close to one degree of solar movement per day at any time in their life. Those born in the other months (April through September) have what is referred to as a slower ascension and will need to add one year of life over a period of 30 days of solar arc movement.


 

Solar arc direction uses the same measurement with all the planets and angles as well (Ascendant and Midheaven). Every planet advances approximately one degree per year as well as the angles. For example, at age 60, all planets and angles will be making a sextile to their natal positions. Another example, at age 45, all the planets would be making a semi-square to their natal positions.


 

This process, along with transits, is used in chart rectification. If we do not know your correct birth time, this process can be used but you will need to be very adept at astrology to utilize this tool with any type of success.


 

There are several well-known Astrologers that have written marvelous books on solar arcs, one of those being Noel Tyl. The practice of using solar arcs has been in use since at least the 1800’s and therefore is not a new astrological component. It is also a reliable source when it comes to the timing of events, as are transits and progressions. Solar arc is a fascinating subject and will add to your reserve of astrological knowledge as you grow with your astrological teachings.


 

Solar arc along with transits are used in the birth chart rectification process (pinpointing the birth time). This, however, is a lengthy process and to try to detail the process here would only frustrate our readers as it is one of the most challenging processes used in Astrology. As mention earlier and I cannot reiterate enough, a full understanding of Astrology and much experience using the many tools that make up the science of Astrology need to be utilized to perform this task successfully.

TRANSITING VENUS THROUGH THE NATAL CHART

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 29, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


Venus is the planet of love and attraction. Its movement through the zodiac is quick and often very passive in its energies. Its influence lasts not much longer than a day or two, but while in retrograde can stimulate an area of your chart for much longer. In retrograde, Venus can pass over a specific area of your chart several times and highlight that area for the duration it makes contact.

 


Venus often draws things to you and this could include romantic involvement, social attractions, financial conditions, creativity and the list goes on. It often suggests that this is a time to enjoy. Venus in its highest form is love, pure love; and its connections can bring wonderful experiences.

 


Venus in, almost any, aspect to another planet or significant angle has positive ramifications. Even under the more harsh astrological aspects, such as the square and opposition, Venus often brings fruitful conditions although you may have to work to get there.

 


Saturn is often the only contrary planet as it seems to test love and affection. Saturn is the teacher and can create work, although the final rewards may be a satisfying relationship if the foundation is built on solid ground.

 


Venus factors “growing into maturity” under a more stable and secure structure.

 


Under the influence of Venus, it is a time to have fun, go to parties, host parties and socialize with others. It often suggests pleasant conditions and fortunate encounters. Venus can bring beauty and refinement into your life.

 


Check to see which sign and house your natal Venus is located in to get a clearer picture of how Venus interacts within the natal framework of your specific chart. Also check to see which house and which sign transiting Venus is moving through to get a clearer understanding of what areas of life are affected and under what energies its influence will affect. The aspect it makes to natal planets has a huge impact on how the energies gel and how they will be released.

 


Enjoy your Venus transits when they are activated and have some fun. Make the best out of a good thing.

COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS, IN THE MOMENT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 28, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


 

Many individuals are of the opinion that they are alone on this journey.


 

Do you believe this to be true?


 

In many ways, it seems as though we are on our own during this journey to awakening. We do share this experience with many others and we are quite aware of this. Why then do we feel alone and what is it that makes us feel apart from others? Does ego have a hand in this?


 

We are all a part of the collective consciousness. With this understanding, surely we can eliminate this feeling we have and then provoke change in this world--change for the greater whole.


 

Have you ever thought of someone and then the phone rings and they are on the other end of the line?


 

How often have you been singing a song in your head and then you hear the song?


 

These small incidences (often thought of as irrelevant) confirm our connection to the whole.


 

With this in mind, do you wonder if you, as a single individual, can affect the overall condition of the world?


 

Have you decided that it would be insignificant if you were to partake in an effort to do something energetically worthwhile for our world or collective whole?


 

If we feel this way, it may be time to take a second look without ego interference.


 

We share this world, we share this collective consciousness and we can and do affect each other. The part that each of us play is important. Not one person is more important than the other. It does not matter the state of our conscious connection although mental recognition can have its benefits.


 

We are all part of the process and linked in consciousness. Many are aware of the awakening taking place world-wide. Some read about it and others feel it. We form part of the ancestral group for this evolving story. We are here to shake up consciousness and to awaken to our greater purpose of peace and love.


 

Will you do your part in this process?


 

Share your experience and knowledge and align with the universal principle of love, gratitude and compassion. Help shake this world out of its complacency. Belief structure forms our reality. What are your expectations? What do you believe?


 

We hold the key to the future and as a whole can bring forth the changes that are so desperately needed. Acknowledge your part. Be passionate with all that you do as it affects you and everyone around you. We are all one and our consciousness IS connected.

MINI FORECAST FOR THOSE BORN WITH THEIR SUN IN SAGITTARIUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 27, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


 

This forecast is for those born under the sun sign of Sagittarius.


 

We mentioned in our previous post on November 22, 2019 that Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn are making semi-sextiles to those who have their Sun sign in Sagittarius during this upcoming year. We also talked about how semi-sextiles are an opportunity aspect with ties to being in the right place at the right time. See our post from November 22, 2019 “Sun in Sagittarius 2019” for details.


Pluto is direct from October 2, 2019 until April 25, 2020, when it goes into retrograde from this April date until October 4, 2020.


 

When Pluto is in its direct motion, it moves from 20 degrees 38 minutes to 24 degree 59 minutes. During this time of direct motion, Pluto’s energies are not hampered, and they are allowed full expression. Pluto’s orb of influence is 5 degrees approaching and 2 degrees separating. As a result, if your Sun falls within these degrees, Pluto will be making the semi-sextile to your Sun in 2020. When Pluto is in retrograde motion, its energies are not allowed full expression. They are restricted.


Pluto provides power and influence to any planet it touches. While Pluto is direct, it is said to have the power to lead the multitudes and create massive change in an outward expression. While it is retrograde, as mentioned, it is not allowed full expression and is hampered somewhat. Under retrograde influence, Pluto is more tied to following the masses rather than leading them. The changes it offers up are more internal and personal in nature although it can also have an effect on others although more in a perceived negative response.


 

While connected to the Sun using the above mentioned orb of influence, the semi-sextile will provide opportunities and the potential of being in the right place at the right time, in areas related to goals in life and life objectives sometime come into view. Transformations take place and regeneration of plans set forth prior to this time now may seem to fall into place. Sometimes we have to work towards these objectives and other times they appear to fall into our lap. But the timing seems perfect, and it will be up to the Sagittarius individual to take advantage of these opportunities and use them accordingly.


In retrograde motion, they may have to work a little harder to orchestrate these plans and if Pluto crosses over the same degree as the Sun sign’s position, they may find that the final forward motion is the best opportunity to advance. Semi-sextiles actually have a smaller orb of influence due to the fact that they are considered minor aspects. As a result, use an approaching orb of 2 degrees and a separating orb of 1 degree as the orb of influence. All major aspects have a larger degree of influence than minor aspects.


 

These goals that the influenced Sag individual might be pursuing can be very personal in nature and could include occupational advancement or achievement, path clarification, marriage partnership, business associates and personal objectives such as health related plans which can be set in motion. If they choose to follow these actions, they can lead to better health and wellness. These individuals may be spiritually centred and may pursue these types of goals. There may also be power opportunities and a general push for advancement in life.


 

2020 is a good year for those that fall into this category to pursue what matters most to them and if they follow up they might very well find that they ARE in the right place at the right time.


 

It can certainly be beneficiary to use astrology to help plan. We should always take advantage of the opportunities at hand to advance in the direction of choice. Sagittarius Sun individuals can enjoy and make sure that they use this fortunate position to not only advance their personal experiences but also to promote the same for others. Karma can be a wonderful thing although we should be moving ahead helping others without regard for what it might bring back our way. This is true love and provides a great sense of fulfillment.


 

If you are interested in obtaining further information on the energies affecting your life as a Sagittarius individual (or any Sun sign for that matter), the length of time they will last and the areas of life affected, we can prepare a chart of your choice to provide you with valuable information which can be applied to your life’s mission and the path you are on. There may be many other avenues of expression available to you.

LIFE'S ETERNAL JOURNEY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 26, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


Where did we truly begin?


If we were regressed back to our birth, would we still have remnants or memories of a previous life still intact at that moment?

 


Would there be memories of a distant past or would the experience only be closely linked to this present life ready to begin?

 

These are questions that have been pondered by many individuals who question the validity of past lives. Reincarnation is a topic that requires an open mind as the concept, although many believe has been proven, still entices our imagination and there is much left to the imagination.

 


Is this our first life?

 


Have we been here before?

 


If we have been here before then why do most of us not recall anything from our previous incarnations? Would it interfere with our life’s purpose now? Could it affect how we would live our life if we knew the why behind our current existence? Is it important for most of us to concern ourselves with past lives?

 


We can know in our hearts the answers to these questions and they are very personal ones for each of us. We may never be able to explain the answers to these questions to others with true clarity.

 


Uncovering our inner personal story is part of our life’s purpose and many believe this is within our grasp. Some believe it is found by living in the moment which is said to open doors to awaken our connection to life.

 


Many individuals are very busy living in their potential futures or wrapped up in emotions from their past. The past and the future are not where we are meant to focus our attention. We have come to experience life to the fullest and this can only be done by living in the moment.

 


We will always continue our search for answers to many questions, especially our true meaning. This is a question that seems to be a part of our nature. We have come with the answers but for most of us, they seem to be locked away. Our present day, let alone our present life, IS our unfolding story.

 


Each of us walk this journey at our own pace and we cannot rush our evolution. The purpose of this journey IS the journey not the destination. As a result, this moment in the journey is of utmost importance. Our journey may be a million steps but this very step we are taking now is the only one moving us forward.

 


Staying open to the understanding that bridges our physical life and our spiritual life will certainly allow us to continue each step we must take. If we choose to stay focused strictly in the material world and exclude the connection to our deeper selves then the bliss of the journey is lost. Could it be that those who choose to ignore the journey are here to strictly to learn from their feet being planted firmly on this earthly ground?

 


For some of us we search beyond the working, sleeping world but it is important to respect the choices that we have made as well as the choices others have made. Follow the path that excites your heart even if no one else has been there before you.

NEW MOON - NOVEMBER 26 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 25, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


On November 26, 2019, at 10:07 a.m. we will be experiencing the New Moon at 4 degrees in the sign of Sagittarius. This New Moon is indicative of a new start or the beginning of something that could be viewed as an optimistic advancement pertaining to growth and expansion. This could deal with life’s philosophy in the moment, spiritual insight and the desire to move in a new direction because there is the need for a shift or adjustment to what has been in place up until this point.


This adjustment may be required as our growth has become dormant or life circumstances no longer serve a viable purpose. That which no longer serves us can be stopping us in some way from moving ahead in the direction that is more suitable at this point in our lives. This can be a new beginning as mentioned but it will take some adjustment due to Uranus, which is currently at 3 degrees in the sign of Taurus, is making a quincunx to this placement of the Sun and Moon.


In some way, we may find that we are at the right place at the right time and the move, although somewhat disruptive and perhaps even somewhat unexpected, is due to the time being ripe for adventure or exploration. Mars is making a semi-sextile at 4 degrees Scorpio and the positioning exemplified may be short lived. By early December, the influence of Mars begins to fade somewhat, so the time to take advantage of these energy is right now.


There may be opportunity for travel and perhaps we may be planning on taking a trip of some sort especially if this placement is found in the ninth house of our natal chart. Perhaps there is a change of residence or a move taking place in our work especially when the fourth and/or tenth houses are involved. Perhaps this speaks of a relationship of significance such as a marriage partner or a romantic involvement and the seventh would be indicative of the marriage partnership while the romantic involvement might speak in terms of the fifth house involvement.


Remember we require a close connection to either our natal planets or an angle in our birth chart especially by conjunction or opposition for this New Moon to have an important effect on our chart. Regardless of what takes place in personal terms, our most significant input in these actions taking place will be our attitude towards what is happening. Life always happens for a reason and we should not disregard anything whether it is a difficult lesson or beneficial experience. Know that life always takes us in the right direction even if the unfolding process is slow and tedious or quick and responsive for that matter.


Enjoy and make the best of the situation and be open to life and its ongoing influence and messages.

SUN IN SAGITTARIUS 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 22, 2019 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


Today, November 22, 2019, the Sun moves into the mutable, fire sign of Sagittarius. Because Sagittarius is one of four mutable signs, (the others being Gemini, Virgo and Pisces), Sagittarius individuals have the ability to bend with life’s circumstances. They can adapt to situations and can also be restless and changeable. Sagittarius is easy going and usually friendly and optimistic about life’s opportunities. Even when they are faced with adversity, they truly believe that something good is just around the next corner. These individuals can be lucky, and life seems to usually point them in the right direction. This is mostly due to their ruling planet which is Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion.


Fire signs are enthusiastic about life and often have a lot of energy and drive. They too will have to assert themselves at times if they want to move ahead in life. Sagittarius can rebound well and need to have a certain amount of freedom in their expression.


Sagittarius individuals do at times have foot in mouth disease as they tend to speak their mind with little forethought. They are well meaning people and are liked by most. These individuals are happy go lucky and considered fortunate by many. Again, as mentioned earlier, these individuals do need to focus their energies if they want to succeed.


Those with their Sun in the sign of Sagittarius, depending on what degree, will be experiencing the semi-sextile aspect to three planets into early spring. Jupiter will be in the sign of Capricorn most of 2020 so it will be making this aspect to those with their Sun in Sagittarius at some point in time this upcoming year. Those with their Sun in the later degrees will be experiencing the semi-sextile to Saturn into March, while those with their Sun in the late mid-degrees and well into the later degrees will have this aspect with Pluto for quite a while yet.


The semi-sextile is an aspect which is considered favourable and is also known as a minor aspect, so a tight orb must be allowed. No more than a two degree orb should be considered. The semi-sextile is an aspect of opportunity and is suggestive of being in the right place at the right time. Much will depend on what houses are involved and this will be represented by the areas of life being affected. You will need to be sure that you take advantage of these energies while they are present in your chart. Do not squander the opportunity.


For further explanation you must also consider the other planetary influences during these periods of time. The whole chart always needs to be deciphered as well as the natal potential that exists within the framework of the birth chart.


Enjoy these energies and explore your potential Sagittarius.

WHEN IS IT TIME TO TAKE THAT BIG STEP?

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 19, 2019 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


To begin....to you, in particular, what is that “big step”?


We are not talking about that promotion that you have been working towards or a commitment you are contemplating with your partner. What we are referring to is our big step forward towards fulfilling our purpose....our divine purpose.


We are living a material existence. We cannot deny this. Addressing our needs and concerns pertaining to material existence is essential.


Should we be overly focused on moving forward in these earthly ventures? Should we be spending countless hours pursuing a position that promises financial rewards? That is a very personal decision and not one someone else can make for us.


These activities are part of our day-to-day living and as a result, we do have to address these. We were not put on this earth to ignore our survival AND need to flourish. If part of the process in our existence on earth is to attain wealth then so be it……Find your fortune…… Address your concerns……Learn and fulfill your earthly requirements.


In achieving life’s goals pertaining to physical manifestation, we recognize our capabilities to manifest and creation. There is nothing negative or irresponsible with achieving and setting goals in life. They can be quite rewarding. The rush we experience from these rewards, however, is short lived and then we push on to the next goal.


Achieving these earthly objectives sets us up to recognizing our abilities to transform our lives and reach other important goals that are not focused on material gain.


These further goals we set out to accomplish may be a little more elevated but we trust our abilities due to our past experiences as we have accomplished other goals that we previously set.


Perhaps now is the time to gather ourselves and reach out for something in life that not only brings us happiness and self-understanding, but advances us on our spiritual journey as well. A perfect goal could be one that opens us up to our core self.


In our earthy existence, there is nothing wrong with working towards material expansion if that is on our list of accomplishments. It will serve the purpose for the time being. Eventually many of us will tire of the material goals and move our focus to other goals maybe focused on spirituality, emotional control, psychic development, etc. These goals have many different peaks. The gratification experience from reaching each juncture will far outweigh any man-made material gain.


We can claim our rewards for a life set in motion. We can appreciate our connection with source, for true happiness is not experienced through material abundance although it is our birthright.


If not already there, there will be a time when we have reached the plateau or maybe even the summit of worldly wealth, and a door will open so that we can delve within to find the answers for a different way of living. When this door opens we see an opportunity to find a place of peace and true quiet, a place where we can make contact with our inner self.


We can manifest all that we need for a life of joy and love, a completely difference wealth. We may continue to move ahead in material abundance and help those who struggle along the way. There is no reason these two worlds cannot be blended.


While we walk this earthly journey, we cannot forget to manifest the needs of our higher selves as well as the needs for our physical self. Take the time to sit in quiet contemplation, to hear the messages of all of the other energies that share this existence with us. Meditation, nature, etc..... these also offer riches that contain great value, but ones you cannot put a price tag on.

PURPOSE OF AN ASTROLOGY CHART

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 18, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


In Astrology, the Natal or birth chart is a snapshot of the heavens at the instant of birth with the planets frozen in time. The planets, their placement and their angles to each other as well as specific points in our natal chart tell the individual’s personal story.


Once we are born, the planets continue their movement around the zodiac. The birth chart or natal chart placements, however, remains in the same place for our lifetime. The movement of planets after our birth is known as transits and progressions. We will not go into any great detail here, but it is suffice to say the movement of planets and the stationary planets of our birth chart will make aspects to each other and will tell a story over and above the story told by our Natal chart.


When these transiting (moving) planets align with natal planet placements (and much depends on the overall condition of the natal chart), areas of your life defined by the house positions of the transits and progressions as well as the house positions of the planets in the natal chart are activated and life events and reactions begins to unfold. This unfolding is experienced on an intuitive level at first when the transiting planets begin forming an aspect (angle between these links) and then can be experienced on an external level through events as the energies become enhanced by the joining up of other planetary influences.


Astrology can pinpoint when these areas of life will become activated and how these energies may affect you. However much depends on your attitude you have during the activity and the duration of its effects on your life and to the intensity of what transpired. Astrology prepares you for this upcoming energy entering your life and can provide you with clues as to how to deal with the energies and events or take advantage of what may transpire over the coming periods while the transiting and natal planets’ energies merge.


Astrology can be used as a tool and a guide to assist you in overcome obstacles, to assist you to prepare for periods in life when things may not run smoothly but also to prepare you for times when great opportunities will be laid in front of you. These opportunities may not materialize if you do not recognize the prospects that are available to you. Astrology gauges the energies of the activity and provides you with suggestions on how to utilize these energies as they enter your life.


For those wishing to take advantage of these early signs and use Astrology as a guiding principle in their lives, astrology is a viable “advertisement” of opportunities to come, both with the easy flow and with harder lessons. Transits and Progressions offer a window of seeing rather than moving forward without insight of the potentials that lie ahead. An Astrology chart provides you with the upper hand.


Astrology is a tool of reference that can be applied in many areas of life. The birth chart provides the initial backdrop suggesting who you are, how you naturally cope with life and how you can take advantage of opportunities that come your way.


Astrological guidelines are not written in stone as we have free will and can react to any given situation in our own way but we are predisposed to reacting a certain way and the chart will indicate this. A chart is a tool to assist us in dealing with life as it unfolds with less resistance and with more personal awareness.


We have the tools available in life to overcome any adversity and also to take advantage of all opportunities. Astrology is one of such tools. With your own personal decisions combined with information provided by Astrology, you can direct your life and enjoy the natural flow. Take advantage of the information Astrology provides and have a leading role in your ever unfolding journey.

UNDERSTANDING TRANSITS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 15, 2019 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)


Our birth chart or natal chart is a snapshot of the heavens at the moment of birth with the earth in the centre. The earth is surrounded by all the planets. This snapshot of the heavens (the birth chart) remains intact as long as you live, nothing changes. The moment after birth, however, the planets (although frozen in the natal chart) begin to move again which are call the transiting planets. On most chart diagrams, the transiting planets are located on the outside of the circle and the natal planets are located in the centre of the chart diagram. Each transiting planet moves at a different speed. They can also move in different directions (direct – moving forward; stationary – appear to not move at all; and retrograde – appearing to move backwards).


Again, the moving planets after the moment of birth are called Transiting and the deciphering of these placements and the angles they make (aspects) to the natal planets and astrology chart angles (MC, Ascendant, IC and DC) tell the current and future story of your life. There are many aspects these transiting planets can make to the natal (birth) planets (both Major and Minor aspects). Some of these aspects are considered challenging but teach valuable lessons. Other aspects are easy flow. Much depends on what angles and planets are involved.


When a transiting planet, for example, makes an angle of 0 to 10 degrees separation (moving away) to a natal planet, the energies merge and become one. 0 to 10 degrees is called a conjunction which tells of an emphasis and it elevates the energies of the planets involved (or the angles it touches). The conjunction is most strong when the two plants are 0 degrees apart. As they begin to separate, the energies begin to weaken and usually within 2-3 degrees past direct, the energies are basically gone. Saturn, which is the exception, does last longer and is often at its peak 2 degrees past direct. Everything associated with Saturn seems to be delayed.


Another variable with the transits and what they are saying involves the house placement that the planets are found in. For example, when a planet is moving through the seventh house, the seventh house matters will be involved. You not only look at the transiting planet’s house but also look at the house that the natal (same) planet is located in as well as the house any aspecting planet is located in. You also have to look at the natal house placement that the transiting planet was located in within the birth chart.


In other words, if Uranus is transiting the seventh house, the seventh house is enhanced or activated. If Uranus is aspecting the Sun in the 10th house, the 10th house is also highlighted. If Uranus is natally in the fourth house then you also have to take into consideration what the fourth house signifies. You would be looking at the 7th house, the 10th house and the 4th house to get a full picture of the aspect between Uranus and the Sun.


When delineating transits, it is important that you understand the duration of the transits. All the outer planets have a greater impact on your life because they move slowly. Pluto can have as much as a 3-4 year impact on your life. The most powerful will always be when planets are direct. Direct contact can last as long as one to two years.


Faster moving planets have very quick influences and as a result, move out of influence quickly. There is no lasting impact from the inner planets.

WITHSTANDING LIFE'S PRESSURES

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 14, 2019 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


Life at times can present us with challenges that seem to steal our focus and we, for some reason, allow ourselves to feel stagnating and point the finger at the challenges. For some, they may even question their self-worth. We can be confronted with what feels to be massive, overwhelming tests that come at us from every angle. With the deepest life lessons, we are seldom prepared for the events.


In hindsight, upon review, our reactions are not always what we might have wanted them to be.


For some of us, this seems to be a 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 own reactions to life’s events?


Life is going to happen, with or without our consent. If we view these events as lessons, we can face life head on and use the events to grow and learn. We can recognize that these events are not a part of us. We do not have to own what has taken place.


Alternatively, we can meet life’s events with frustration, “why me” and anger which in turn will turn a lesson into a very difficult lesson. We can take this very hard lesson one step further and own what has happened and see it as a part of who we are. But why would we do this? What would be the benefit of this?


How do we change an event that has already happened? It has happened and we cannot turn back the hands of time.


We always have a choice on how we deal with adversity.


Also, we have a choice on how long we choose to hang on to the events. If we try to sweep them under the carpet, they do not disappear. Guaranteed they will resurface again. If we try to ignore them, we are actually giving them energy by working on ignoring. How much time and control are we 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 in what ways we move forward. 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.


Events in life WILL happen without our consent, 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 feeling as though we are a victim of them. Being familiar with our past reactions and decision helps us to learn to control our next decision. We can put strategies in place so that we make well, thought-out choices instead of making “reaction”. We want to be mindful in order to make wise decisions not react to a situation and then have regrets.


Learn to listen to the quiet inner guide. When something happens, feel the human feelings, but take a breath and allow yourself the time to be mindful. If it is a life lesson you are faced with, see it as that and learn. If we ignore the lesson, it will only come back at us even harder the next time.


Stop, process and then act with intension. Stand tall in the face of adversity by recognizing the lesson. It is not who you are and is not yours to “set up house” in. It is a temporary lesson to help you grow. Move forward with the benefit of that knowledge.

NODES OF THE MOON

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 13, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


There are two nodes of the Moon - the North Node and the South Node. These areas of the chart are always in opposition (180 degrees apart).


The Nodes are known as destiny’s gate or the axis of fate. These Nodes have a karmic and spiritual relevance and some say they are the meeting point between the higher powers and humanity as a whole. This is where the spiritual energies enlighten humanity with their life’s mission. These nodes speak of where we should be heading (North Node) and where we have come from in a past life that has significant ties to this one (South Node).


The South Node has connections with our past, and we bring with us qualities that we can use in this life to help us connect with our current life’s mission. The South Node is an area or energy that we are comfortable with, as these energies are instinctively familiar.


The North Node, however, is completely new and rather unknown to us. Most of us are a little uncomfortable with the energies of our North Node (NN). However, life tends to keep pushing us towards our NN objectives. We are linked to the NN as this is what we need to learn and to develop and use as our journey continues.


It takes some courage in surrendering to our NN energies and direction in life. New areas are opened and revealed to us over time, and they are necessary talents to be acquired in order to facilitate the growth required by the soul.


The North and South Node often provide us with information so we can decipher why we have come into this life and what our purpose truly is. It is said that what happens in this life is tied to what we have experienced previously.


The North Node is known as the dragon’s head while the South Node is known as the dragon’s tail. These nodes although coming from different perspectives will aid in our quest and foster growth through life’s experience that will eventually lead us to where we are meant to be.


The North Node and South Node are defined by sign and house position. For example since they are always 180 degrees apart, if you have a NN in Pisces in the third house, you will have a SN in Virgo in the ninth house.


The house position is similar to having the ruling sign position. As a result, if, for example, you have the NN in the first house, it is like having the NN in the first sign (Aries). The SN would be in the seventh house which would be like having the SN in Libra. Between the Nodal sign position and the Nodal house position, you will get a good idea of what life’s mission might be.


Many in early life are led by the SN node tendencies as this is a comfortable place. As we mature into ourselves, we begin to develop our NN abilities and move into our destined path.

FULL MOON IN TAURUS NOVEMBER 12, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 12, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


We will be experiencing a Full Moon in the sign of Taurus at 19 degrees today, November 12 at 8:37 a.m. EST.


It has been noted that the energies of a Full Moons have a reputation of being rather aggressive particularly with actions taken by some people in the general public. Violent actions such as assault and accidents are known to be heightened when we experience the energies of a Full Moon. This of course is not always the case although incidences are noted to increase by emergency responders.


Astrologically, the Full Moon speaks in terms of eliminating and removing unwanted material in our lives. Often times, it speaks of a culmination point when we will need to address situations in our lives (determined by the house positions) that will now need to be addressed and changed or reviewed and then formulated to take specific action. It is important that because of the lunar effects and emotional interactions that are often accompanied with a Full Moon that we make sure that we are in control of our actions and that we are not led astray because of emotional over reaction.


The Full Moon can, as mentioned many times in previous posts, also be the harvest time in our garden of life. Now is the time to reap the benefits of all of the hard work we have carried out to reach our goals (particularly the ones that are associated with the energies of the full moon).


A Full Moon in the sign of Taurus may speak of solidification or a need for structure so that things can be steadfast and reliable. Taurus seeks stabilizing conditions and is intent on building a structure that will stand the test of time. So if this were focused on a relationship, it would be wise to make sure that this is what you want long term in your life. If this has to do with your occupation or plans of action it would be important that you make sure you are putting your right foot forward under this influence.


Transiting Pluto will be making a trine to this position which suggests that although potentially disruptive and dramatic the likely effects of this Full Moon will be transformational in positive ways which are often understood at a later date. Pluto sometimes speaks of an end or close to conditions and after a personal review of these conditions after you will be pointed in the proper direction even if it does not look that way at present.


Pluto will insist that you get to the route of the situation and explore what needs to be regenerated. Once this has been done things will transform so that all connected with this energies will be more suitable down the road. This is a trine aspect which does suggest a somewhat of an easy flow, fortunate conditions and positive outcomes as time passes and things settle.


Pluto is the agent of transformation and its actions can be intense or subtle but much depends on the situation at hand and how the rest of the chart correlates with these energies.


At the same time, we also have (although rather short lived) Mercury which is in retrograde moving across this positioning from November 9-14 and again in early December, 2019. Mercury while in retrograde is suggestive of a time to reflect and to make plans but not to take action if at all possible. When Mercury returns to its direct motion is the appropriate time to move ahead. Again, November 9-14, 2019, is when Mercury is retrograde and making an aspect the Full Moon. The last couple of days of November and into the first 3-5 days of December is when Mercury is direct and influencing this placement.


It is important to know that you will need planets or angles (especially the Ascendant and MC) within approximately 3-4 degrees of this placement in order to experience this Full Moon’s energies in your life personally. Take into consideration the type of aspect this lunar position is making to your personal chart as well as the house positions in play.

PLUTO RETROGRADE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 11, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


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 within 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 a time 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 to your life today.


During retrograde motion, it is a good time for inner study and to dig up issues that have been buried for too long. It might not always be pleasant what you initially find but these challenging conditions will need to be confronted and dealt with. Any patterns in your life that have reached a state of uncontrollable insistence can best be addressed now and dealt with and changed (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 in order 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 to see what your inner needs may be. It is a time for inner reflection and transformation that usually takes a year or two to unfold.


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