DESTINY'S GATEWAY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 22, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


A single lifetime on earth, in the broad scheme of things, is a very short period. It can feel that much shorter depending on when and if we actually wake up and start paying attention to life, rather than just drifting along ignoring the moment. Once we begin to focus on the moment, life’s experience becomes more relevant and has much more meaning and purpose.


When asleep, we flit from day to day with little recognition of what is happening. We fail to understand that that emptiness within can only be filled with awareness and presence. We point the finger at others and fail to realize that we build our moments, and our tomorrows from our expectations and focus .


When we awaken, we know and understand that we build our tomorrows by our thought processes and will only experience limitations in life if these are part of our expectations. Our concentrated thoughts refocus our pathway.


Many individuals believe that the many lessons we are meant to learn throughout this life have already been determined. Whether it is predetermined or changes as we change our direction throughout life is irrelevant. No matter what is true, we have choices on how we react to each and every event we experience. We have a choice on how we respond to that individual that held the door for us, to that driver that cuts us off, to the stoppage of traffic on the highway, to our house being broken into, to the loss of our spouse, and the list goes on. These do not have to be only negative experiences. The same holds true for what we term “beneficiary” experiences as well. (Is there a non-beneficiary experience?)


Could we have stopped the accident on the highway or the death of our loved one?.....undoubtedly not. Do we have a part in the process of how we appreciate and enjoy our life?......without a doubt!


If we believe or consider the possibility that we are constantly building our tomorrows by what we do today and by our expectations, then is it possible that as we mold our journey it will flex as we build?


Even though we are positive, we will still experience hard lessons in life. These are part of our journey. Our reaction to the lessons is what is important.


Is it not possible for us to go through these life experiences (lessons) and our part in the process is to learn from them and then carry on? Perhaps this is part of destiny’s gateway! Are we to learn not to take everything so personally?


Should we be “owning” everything that happens. We were taught the law of gravity in school. Are we suppose to think that we own this theory or learn from it and move forward?


We are meant to experience but not own. These are not personal. They do not define us – they teach us.


We and only we make the decisions. We choose what we wish to believe and what response we will have throughout our journey. It is always in our hands even when we do not believe it is.


Perhaps all we need to do is watch life flow, be the spectator of all of the events, learn from them and move forward without stress, fearless and free. You will need to decide and then watch what builds from that decision.

SUN IN AQUARIUS 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 18, 2019 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)


The Sun moves into the sign of Aquarius on January 20 just before midnight this year (2019).


Those individuals with their Sun in Aquarius will be experiencing their solar return as the Sun moves through the sign of Aquarius. This is an annual chart prepared for the exact time the Sun returns to its birth placement by degree in your personal chart. The Solar return chart reads similar to a natal chart, but it deals specifically with the current year from birthday to birthday. We will discuss solar returns in a post at a later date.


For those with their Sun in Aquarius or to a lesser degree those with their Sun in the eleventh house, there is an interest or concern for humanity. These individuals can be farsighted, eccentric in their approach and are ahead of their time. Aquarius individuals march to the beat of a different drum than most. Some Aquarians have been labeled odd, and they tend to gravitate to intellectuals individuals.


Aquarius is an air sign and as a result, Aquarians are interested in communication and the sharing of information. They could be considered bohemian and unique in their approach to life, are interested in finding the truth and need a certain amount of freedom. They tend to gravitate to groups of people who are like minded and many are interested in what could be called the unusual.


“Don’t fence me in” could be their motto and many Aquarians walk their own walk and do not fit in well with most others. People will find an Aquarian interesting to converse.


Tthe individuals under this Sun sign are seldom considered overly emotional. (A review of the rest of the chart would have to be undertaken as there could be other influences diluting this energy). Depending on the placement of the Moon, many Aquarians have difficulties releasing emotion and some will find them rather cold in their emotional “expression”.


Many Aquarians are uncomfortable with one to one relationships and their focus lies much more in groups or in their concern for humanity as a whole. Their approach to life is to push people out of complacency by spreading their knowledge to the world. Many individuals, however, do not understand Aquarians, because generally they are ahead of their time.


Aquarius is a fixed sign and it is hard to sway them from their beliefs. Once they make up their mind on a path to take, they rarely shift. They are willing to walk their own path, but will also try to promote that path, ( although for those that are in touch with their own unique path to follow, the Aquarius individual will not persist on pushing them in their direction).


Aquarians have the good or wellbeing of others in mind, but may go about trying to push others to see their approach in a very direct manner. Those that are born under a softer, more gentle sign may find this approach somewhat invasive (and perhaps somewhat out there, depending on their particular mind frame and belief structures).


Aquarius individuals make good Astrologers, computer technicians and inventors. Some could be good at teaching science based courses and some would do well as counselors. They make good friends although they are not overly compassionate, at least on the surface. If someone were to cross an Aquarian, they can let go of this hurt and move ahead, but the hurt may internally last for a while.


Aquarians are not known for being discreet and their direct honest approach is not always what others are ready to hear.


Most Aquarians will follow their path once they figure out what their path might be and some Aquarians may wish to leave something of themselves behind, a legacy if you will, when their time in this physical realm is complete.


Enjoy your new solar journey.

FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE JANUARY 20/21 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 16, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


We will be experiencing a Full Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 20/21, 2019 depending on where you will be.


The Full Moon is at 0 degrees of Leo. The Penumbral eclipse begins at 9:36 p.m. EST on January 20, 2019; the partial at 10:34 p.m. EST, the total eclipse beings at 11:41 p.m. EST, the total begins at 11:41 p.m. EST, the maximum is at 12:12 a.m. EST January 21, 2019 and the total eclipse ends at 12:43 a.m. The partial eclipse ends at 1:50 a.m. EST and the Penumbral ends at 2:48 a.m. EST January 21, 2019 according to “todocanada.ca”


A Lunar Eclipses usually last 3-4 hours and this particular Lunar Eclipse will last a little over 5 hours. The influence of the energies of an eclipse is equivalent in months to the actual hours it lasts. Accordingly, the energies of this Lunar Eclipse should be felt for a little over 5 months.


As we have mentioned many times in the past, Full Moon’s energies deal with the end results of matters which began at the New Moon phase in the same sign (six months previous). Under the Full Moon energies is a perfect time to reap the rewards for our efforts. If we are not ready to harvest, than we can use this opportunity to surveys or review our efforts and nurturing we have put into the seeds we planted. Do you need to fertilize the efforts a little more or weed out some clutter from life to help us get to our harvest?


Eclipses’ energies will initiate action and create change to anything that has gone dormant or stale or is considered outdated. Many people are complacent when it comes to making change and breaking away from anything regardless of how intrusive it maybe. These energies are required to help us move along and bring us out of our complacency.


If you have put little to no energy into your goals, this is what you will reap. If you need to make changes, make the commitment needed to see your project or goal to harvest. It is never suggested that you jump into change carelessly, however. Take time and do your due diligence.


For this Full Moon eclipse (and any other event for that matter), we have to take into consideration what sign the moon falls in, which in this case is Leo. Leo often speaks of ego related activities, sometimes in a negative manner, sometimes in a positive manner. Leo wants control of situations and needs control. Taking charge might be part of what this eclipse is about. This could apply to your occupation, perhaps issues with management especially if tied to Saturn or the MC. It could also speak in terms of relationship issues if tied to the fifth house or seventh house. Much depends on where this eclipse (0 degree Leo) falls in your personal chart. You also have to have a conjunction or opposition that falls within four degrees of this placement for the Full Moon energies to have a more powerful effect on you.


In older times and even today, many people fear eclipses. These luminary events have a bad reputation. This is largely due to the push for change. As mentioned there is a need to push ahead and many individuals resist changes or adjustments to their lives.


Eclipses’ energies often force change upon us; hence their reputation. These changes and new directions are necessary;


Sometimes these changes only need to be a change of attitude or belief structure especially if connected to Mercury. Much will depend on which planets and house are involved. As you can imagine there is a huge difference if you have Saturn as a major influence compared to if you have Jupiter as a major influence. This also applies to the houses involved. Much will also depend on your reaction to these changes, as we always have control over how we respond to any given situation. If we choose to respond in a positive open way, the changes will happen gracefully and flow; however, if we choose to fight the changes, the experience will be less than pleasant.


If change is coming your way, have courage and know that it is has been set in motion for your best interests. We can always work our way through challenges and lessons. No challenging condition lasts forever and with life, we will always experience change. We can resist and create stress or we can accept and allow the lesson to be learned so that we can carry on with more knowledge and experience to make the future easier.


Live in the moment and be aware of your auto responses.

REKINDLING OLD FRIENDSHIPS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 15, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


It is quite amazing when a friend from your past surprises you by dropping in for a visit, calling you or sending you an unexpected message. Friends from the past have a special bond. These friends are from a time long since passed, and they shared special memories and events that few in the present are aware of.


It is similar to taking a walk down an old country road where there is no traffic. The trees and foliage seem to be untouched by the present world. It is a page from the past brought back to life……rekindling an old feeling of comfort and a sense of joy.


If you are lucky enough to have someone come back into your life, do not let that special moment pass you by. Seize the moment to reminisce and share memories. Most likely you will be able to resume that old friendship and pick up right where it was left off.


It does not matter how long you go between meetings. The feelings for a special friendship never fade away. This is the magnificence of a special relationship and these meetings rekindle that special bond. Indeed, special are the words and understandings forged and shared.


We are not suggesting trying to return to the past or to try to live there for the past is gone. Life continues but it can be special to recall those memories and share them with someone who shared them with you.


Do not waste your time on things that are not important. Enjoy and grow from your life’s experiences.


Quite often, it is refreshing to sit with an old familiar friend to review the wonders of life and to create new memories.


What would it take to pick up the phone and dial a number from the past?


Who would you like to sit and reminisce with?


What are you waiting for?

MIDPOINTS

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


In Astrology, there are a total of 78 midpoints. Midpoints are the central location of two planetary bodies as well as the nodes, the Ascendant and the Midheaven. Using natal Jupiter at 8 degrees 43 minutes Aries and the Sun at 1 degree 3 minutes Aquarius as an example, the midpoint would be 4 degrees 53 minutes Pisces.


We always use the shortest distance between the two points. In other words, if you go from 1 degree 3 minutes Aquarius to 8 degrees 43 minutes Aries in a clockwise direction you have 67 degrees 40 minutes. If you go the other way (counter-clockwise) you will have 292 degrees 20 minutes. You will note that the shorter route in this case is clockwise. In other examples, it may be counter-clockwise.


It is not necessary for you to personally calculate the mathematics as there are many computer programs or websites which can do this for you such as Astrodienst. Astrodienst take into consideration all the planets from the Sun to Pluto, Chiron and the North Node. The rest you would have to calculate on your own or through another site.


When you have found the shortest distance between the two planets or points or nodes, you divide this in half and this will be your midpoint. So the midpoint in our example would be 33 degrees and 50 minutes, which will be at 4 degrees 53 minutes Pisces.


Once you have determined the midpoint of any two positions and as mentioned there are 78 midpoints, you will find a degree, minute and sign for all of these locations in the birth chart.


Midpoints bring together the energies associated with the two planets involved, although you also have to take into consideration the strength associated with the planets involved and discuss what that might look like. Our example of the Sun and Jupiter together would promote activities related to the goals and objectives associated with the life’s path of the individual having the chart prepared. This could be translated into their enthusiasm towards life and what it offers through teaching related to philosophy and spirituality. This individual may want to pursue this through the appreciation of others because of the feeling that they just cannot fail and perhaps that luck seems to follow them around. This could also lead to a feeling that they might be better than others and they may feel superior in some way. Ego might be enhanced.


Since the Sun also speaks of our vitality and Jupiter promotes growth and expansion, it could suggest that there is positivity to reaching greater performance through efforts or being in general good health.


As we all have a midpoint between the Sun and Jupiter which would obviously be different for many of us unless the placement is identical in our charts, this central position would have to touch a planet or node or angle to add to this theme. We all understand what the sextile between these two energies might look like, as well as any other aspect. When we put a planet at the midpoint of this position it adds to the overall influence when being set off by transits or progressions. Even if there is not a planet at the midpoint, we can use a three degree orb of influence at the midpoint and a transit or progression will set off these two planets or points, plus any aspects between them in the birth chart.


You can always look at the combined energies and obtain a free flowing expression and a challenging expression, but much depends on the aspect between the two energies or angles in the birth chart, as well as the energies associated with the two planets involved.


For example, there would be a huge difference between a connection between Jupiter and Saturn as opposed to Mars and Venus. If the energies go together well and the aspect between the two is positive then the potential for an affirmative release is heightened and vise-versa. There is also a huge difference between the energies associated with trines and sextiles compared to the energies of squares and oppositions.

TRANSITING SATURN IN OPPOSITION NATAL VENUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 11, 2019 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)


Transiting Saturn travelling through the zodiac under most conditions (depending on how it is aspected in the birth chart) can influence disharmony, challenging conditions, hardship and anxiety due to lessons that need to be learned. As this planet transits through the houses of your chart, it can create shortages and periods with hurdles to overcome. It is known as a challenging planet under most conditions and even trine and sextile aspects do not pass through easily when Saturn is in its transit cycle.


Venus on the other hand is favourable and often suggests favourable conditions through its transit not to mention where it is located in the birth chart. Venus can denote financial stability and security and is often defined as the planet where love and affection can easily be expressed. Once again, however, much will depend on the sign Venus is found in within the natal configuration. How it is aspected will also play an important role in how it influences you and your chart.


Venus can also speak of young women and beauty.


In general, an opposition (180 degree aspect) is considered unfavourable and in many cases this aspect involves others. Oppositions are considered an awareness aspect and will often force you to deal with issues, although not to the extreme that a square would.


An opposition from transiting Saturn to your natal Venus may imply financial shortages or perhaps having to work harder for you essentials. It may challenge your income potential or present you with obstacles interfering with the flow of money.


Since Venus can also relate to love and affection as well as the social aspect of engagement with others, Saturn can cause stressful conditions in love affairs and with the show of affection. Love and affection may be blocked in some manner and the release of these emotions many come with conditions or setbacks. Due to the fact that we are speaking of an opposition, the difficulties, however they present themselves, may stem from others. Saturn makes things difficult and also adds responsibility. If this deals with a love affair, you may feel overburdened by your part in the relationship. If this aspect is found in your chart, you may feel that the love you give is not being equally reciprocated.


Although Saturn can be thought of as a testing period and often brings with it challenging conditions, it is also known as the teacher of the Zodiac, and although its lesson’s may be difficult, what you ultimately learn during the process or after the fact may be well worth all the hard work and effort you had to do on your part.


Saturn offers stability and security and also has lasting potential, but you will want to do your diligent work to reap these rewards. Take no short cuts, use the tried and tested route and ask for advice from those in authority or with experience as these will give you great support and valuable information.


Take in the energies of Saturn without reluctance and see what Saturn is trying to teach you. Do not fight its energies as this can certainly make things even more challenging. At the same time, understand that, as with all things, this time/lesson will pass, and you will make it through the adversity and become stronger and more educated because of the experience.

ASKING FOR DIRECTION

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


Where do we turn when we feel completely lost?


There are times in everyone’s life when the future “seems” hopeless, when we just can’t find the answers to our questions/issues and we feel completely at the mercy of life.


Have you ever reach out to higher energies and asked for direction? It is important to verbally ask for help.


We are never actually stuck or paralyzed by life, even when we feel forsaken. There is always hope. Do we recognize what this hope looks like? The solutions may not be what we are hoping for but what we receive still is a solutions.


It’s important to understand that hope or refuge is accessible on many levels. Be open, listen and then wait for the response. Patience is a very hard lesson but it most often is the key. We must believe that in some way life will change.


There are those of us who live with illness, who are influence by the death of a loved one, confronted with death ourselves and feel lost and in a state of despair. These are very harsh examples of something each and every one of use will eventually face but it is still possible to find peace while experiencing these.


Death is not the end. It is a transition and transitions can be trying. I once read a quote (a cannot remember who it was from) that said something like …..Death is the turning off of the lantern but this does not leave us in the dark because the lantern is turned off since we have reach the dawn.


Forgive yourself for any issues you may be holding on to. Life events are temporary experiences that we are never supposed to own. Release yourself from guilt and “what if’s.


Equally important forgive those that did not live up to your expectations. Do not carry this karma forward. Deal with it now and transition with a clean slate. Forgiving others is a prerequisite to finding peace, but equally important is the peace found with pardoning self of our own mistakes.


Release ourselves from our hell as this exists is the torment of our minds. The only way to do so is to forgive ourselves and move forward in peace.


For those of us that have recently experienced death (literal death, death of a relationship, or change of circumstance in your life) be gentle and compassionate with self. We must allow ourselves time to experience a loss, emotionally, physically and spiritually. It is important to grieve, fully and completely. However, it is equally important not to own the experience. It is a temporary experience, not a place that we are meant to take up residence in. We must experience the pain of loss to be able to overcome and adjust to this loss. Face it head on only then can we move beyond it.


Reach out to loved ones or professionals. It is perfectly natural to ask for assistance, to ask for advice, to ask for direction when we cannot find the answers.


Always remember, we are never alone. We do not have to do this alone.

SINGLETON THROUGH HEMISPHERIC EMPHASIS

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


On January 7, 2019, we discussed the different hemispheres and what an emphasis in those quadrants suggests.


A singleton (through hemisphere emphasis) is defined as all of the planets being in one section of the chart so having a hemispheric emphasis with one lone planet on the opposite side. For example, if we have an emphasis on the eastern hemisphere there would be nine planets on the eastern side of the zodiac which is around the Ascendant or through houses 10 through to the third, the tighter the planets are together, the stronger this singleton. There would also be one single planet in the seventh house opposing this configuration (again this is our example).


The planets that are found on the eastern side are not as emphasized as they would be if all the planets were in this quadrant together. The single planet on the opposite side has the emphasis and is extremely powerful in its expression. The hemisphere that this single planet is found in has the emphasis and gains in strength.


Whenever there is a singleton in a chart that particular planet and its energies play a significant role in that particular hemisphere. The singleton, which for an example could be Saturn falling in the western hemisphere, would affect not only the house that it is in but all the houses represented by that hemisphere. On the western hemisphere, the houses would entail the 4,5,6,7,8 and 9 and the western hemisphere is about adjusting to the needs of others. It is the area associated with other people and this area suggests that this individual would be very attuned into satisfying the needs of those people. They would always consider the needs of others before their own needs.


With Saturn in the position of our example, looking after the needs of others would be very important and could become a job or at least feel like a job. They could feel responsible for others and perhaps try to discipline them in some way in the hopes of orchestrating their journey in the proper direction. This could relate to a business type matter where they would try to assist others and help them advance in their personal life objectives. They will be steadfast in their approach, they would be known as being reliable and would always do the best they could. Their own needs would come second and achievement for self might not be as important as it would be for the advancement of others.


This could be relayed through the family and home environment, through love relationships and romantic partners, through the working environment, in the marriage partnership, with joint finances and insurance or alimony, and in a religious manner, through life’s philosophy or legalities and perhaps court cases.


This need to look after other people’s requirements is not just pinpointed by the house where Saturn is located, but is spread throughout that full quadrant of the Astrology chart.

ARE WE COMPASSIONATE?

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


If you see someone less fortunate than you or who is struggling in life, are you respectful of their situation?


Those less fortunate can benefit greatly from those of us blessed with abundance (whatever that abundance may be). Even a gentle helping hand goes a very long way.


How does it hurt to show compassion for those experiencing turmoil?


What response would warm our hearts if it were us in their situation?


What can you do to help? All living things deserve love and respect. Do we have an hour to sit and share a coffee with someone in need of a human connection?


Those suffering physically or mentally with health issues can certainly benefit from even a short visit from those of us who can spare 5 minutes, half an hour, an hour.


When we give through love and compassion, no matter how large or how small, we do not need a pat on the back. Seeing the gratitude in their eyes is reward enough.


How are you going to share your abundance, whatever that abundance might be?


How will you respond when someone reaches out to you? How will you respond to those our see in need that do not reach out?

HEMISPHERE EVALUATION

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 7, 2019 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)


The hemispheres in a horoscope are divided up in four sections. There are:


1. The Northern Hemisphere which includes planets which are below the horizon, or centred around the IC;

2. The Southern Hemisphere which is located above the horizon centred around the MC;

3. The Eastern Hemisphere which is centred around the Ascendant; and

4. The Western Hemisphere which is centred around the Descendant.


An emphasized Hemisphere would have the majority of planets in that particular quadrant.


Some Astrologers suggest that planets in retrograde should be considered in the opposite quadrant. For example, if Saturn is in retrograde in the Northern Hemisphere, when calculating a Hemisphere emphasis, Saturn would be considered to be in the Southern Hemisphere. If Mars is in retrograde motion in the Eastern Hemisphere, Mars should be considered in the Western Hemisphere in your calculation. Of course, the planets do not actually change positions in the birth chart but when it comes to this evaluation, they are considered to be in the opposite Hemisphere.


These Hemisphere configurations would look similar to a fan pattern, with most of the emphasis in one quadrant.


As we delineate this Hemisphere calculation, it is important to remember that this only applies to planets. Asteroids and nodes are not included in this calculation.


Those individuals with an emphasis around the Eastern Hemisphere or around the Ascendant are said to be concerned with their own private personal ventures. They are said to be driven by internal needs and push ahead with their objectives. This is not to say that they are egotistical or self-centered. This suggests that these individuals focus their attention on advancing those things that they deem significant to themselves. Personal advancement on some level is a priority.


Some Astrologers have noted that there appears to be much defensiveness with people who have this emphasis. This Hemisphere incorporates houses 1,2,3,10,11,12. Free will and the ability to move towards their path or orientation are important to these people. They take on some of the qualities of the first house.


Those individuals who have the emphases around the Northern Hemisphere or centered around the IC are said to be more private and introverted. The emphasis would be with the houses 1 through 6. These individuals are often focused on the needs of the family and the home environment, similar to a 4th house emphasis.


Some Astrologers have noted that there are affairs or events that have been left unresolved related to early life conditions and the need for these to be dealt with.


The fourth/tenth house axis is related to the parents, some say that the fourth house is related to the mother or the most nurturing parent yet some say it relates to the father. This has been a controversial issue with many Astrologers. You will have to test it for yourself to see what fits and feels right for your practice or your chart. This area is related to private and individual areas of life and as such can be related to internal issues. These issues are usually kept private or some individuals choose to not deal with them at all.


Those individuals with a vast number of planets on the Western side of the chart or around the Descendant, houses from 4-9, tend to concentrate their energies on others. They are “other-people” motivated rather than being self-motivate. They are always considering the needs of others when it is time to take a step forward. Direction often comes through others. There is a great deal of giving but not very much taking. Some of these individuals can be taken advantage of from those with stronger personalities or those that tend to prey on these types of individuals. They are very giving but must watch for being taken advantage of. There are similar traits to those with the seventh house prominent in their charts.


With an emphasis on the Southern Hemisphere, (the houses above the horizon), houses 7 through 12, there is a tendency to be extraverted and these individuals are drawn to social environments. They are concerned with what is going on in the outside world and tend to gravitate towards social activities where they can mingle and be objective about what they discover in these areas of life. There is a link to the tenth house as events in life tend to affect these individuals and their path in life.


Some Astrologers have linked this Southern Hemisphere with being swept away by life’s conditions. It has even been considered that these individuals could be victimized in some manner. This could also be potentially related to the parents because of the axis point. Again, some Astrologers differ on who the tenth house is representative of, the father or the most disciplinary or providing parent vs the mother.


This Astrologer feels that the fourth house, being ruled by the Moon and Cancer, would be representative of the mother or nurturing parent and the tenth house, being ruled by Saturn and Capricorn, would be representative of the father or disciplinary parent. I do note, however, that when it comes to a personal injury connected to the past (emphasis in the Northern Hemisphere) there would be a connection with the father, but on a deeper level, you have to question how the mother influenced particular life events and what was the reaction to her interjection? So you be the judge.

NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE JANUARY 5, 2018

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 4, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


We will be experiencing a New Moon, and partial Solar Eclipse tomorrow, January 5, 2019.


This New Moon is at 15 degrees in the sign of Capricorn. This solar eclipse is a partial eclipse which is mainly visible in Asia.


Solar eclipses are said to bring to light any imbalances within the psyche and to also bring together the right and left side of the brain. There is great awareness with this energy, and we may feel as though we can do anything under this influence. There can be a greater potential for insight into what needs balancing in life. Any planets within a three degree orb (some Astrologers use a wider orb) will be influenced by this New Moon Solar Eclipse, especially by conjunction or opposition. The square is also applicable as well as the trine and sextile of course.


The New Moon’s energies are enhanced to a great extent and the beginning of anything new (look to the houses involved) is suggested at this time. A new moon speaks of new beginnings (planting our seeds in the garden of life) and on the opposite end of the lunar cycle, the full moon speaks of the harvest of these seeds that have been nurtured.


In the sign of Capricorn, the new moon energies could be tied to business ventures or a business association or the beginning of a new business. Capricorn will supply the push to propel us forward although with some restraint and perhaps some concerns, which can be a good thing in the long haul. It is not a time for rushing into things. We will need to set the ground work and then once we are comfortable about applying the process, we can begin. Take no short cuts and expect some delays. There is likely to be some hurtles to overcome in the process but think of these as learning opportunities. Do not back down because of fear of failure, and if need be, rethink what your plans might entail.


This is a busy New Moon and it makes several aspects during its influence. The conjunction between the Sun and Moon make a close sextile to Neptune which is at 14 degrees in the sign of Pisces. Sextiles often speak of opportunities and fortunate outcomes but we have to use these energies. If we sit back and expect life to do the work for us, we will be sadly disappointed to realize that things will not unfold the way we had wished they would have.


This is the time for action but realistic action. Do not be led astray by illusionary concepts and use your visual imagination to propel yourself forward. It is always good to visualize the final picture of what it is you are trying to do. Neptune can add to any artistic pursuit or creative endeavour, and you can correlate the mind with the emotions to perfect the adventure.


We also have a conjunction of Saturn to this New Moon Solar Eclipse. Saturn is at 11 degree Capricorn so it will bring clarity and help define the tried and tested rather than something obscure. Saturn knows it will take some hard work to get things off the ground, but offers up perseverance and reliability over the duration of this influence.


Most Astrologers believe that Solar eclipses are strong in their effect for about 6 months, but the overall effect of Solar Eclipses is equivalent in years to the time it lasts; so a three and one half hour eclipse will still be in force 3 ½ years from the time of the eclipse, if it makes close aspects within your natal chart.


We also have a conjunction to Pluto which is at 20 degrees Capricorn. Pluto tends to create needed change although often through dramatic and deep profound avenues. Pluto transforms all it touches. It tears apart anything that needs revamping, puts an end to non-essential matters and asks us to dig deep for the answers we are looking for.


As you can see, the overall influence of this New Moon Solar Eclipse can be quite profound and it will likely uncover those things that need to come to the surface and then push for a change to occur.


Enjoy the energies in place and see what you can do at this time to propel yourself in the direction of choice. Be ready for the end of certain conditions and the beginning of something new, something valid and essential for your spiritual growth and understanding.

LOVE YOURSELF

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 3, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


Do you appreciate the person you are?


Take a moment to reflect on the divine that radiates from your core. Do you recognize and accept your connection to your higher self? We are not speaking of your mind or your ego. We are referring to that energy that lives within. The majority of us are aware of it when our heart is filled with love. It is a rising within our chest. The spirit within is complete, needing neither nothing more nor nothing less.


All love radiates from within. We are a reflection of that love. Love connects all things. Through love we experience harmony, peace and compassion and the list goes on.


Without love, could we exist?


We are naturally in unity with love, and we have come into being as an expression of love.


The first step in allowing love to grow as love’s growth can be eternal.


Recognize the love that radiates from within you. Now allow yourself to love you.


Mastering self-love can be difficult, because we can always finds flaws within our human existence. We are spirit currently in human form. We can rise above ego’s constant chatter and the thought process associated with ego’s chatter create doubt, not spiritual perfection.


Align with your true self and simply allow that magnificent force of love that exists within to be. This love is not connected to ego. Your alignment to love allows you to understand and control this continual onslaught from ego. If you see flaws in yourself, do not identify with them as they are not part of your true essence. To believe that they are is simply a manifestation from ego. See those thoughts for what they are.


To beat ego’s control is no different than beating any other addition. The thoughts that go through a smoker’s head when they are trying to quite are ridiculous in content when heard after the addiction has been overcome! The ego’s voice is no different than the voice heard by those suffering from addiction. We must learn not to identify with that chatter and see it for what it is – nonsensical chatter.


The true you is a perfect creation without flaw, and love radiates through your pure essence. You can continually seek to learn and grow on human terms, but our essence is already a reflection of love and perfection. See yourself for who you truly are. Stop identifying with the ego. Any misleading thoughts that belittle you or make you feel superior are ego generated. Do not identify with these.


Watch for making judgements based on the ego’s interpretation. Love yourself as you are and watch love grow in your life. Love is the greatest power of all.


Eternal life - eternal love. There are no bounds.

TRANSITING SATURN OPPOSITION NATAL SUN

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 2, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


Saturn while in transit often presents us with challenges and lessons. It can often hamper advancement from a professional perspective. Much will depend on the house that Saturn is transiting through and the sign that it is in.


At present, Saturn is in the sign of Capricorn which often points towards professional obligations and duties. This would be enhanced if for example Saturn was in the tenth house or sixth house in your chart.


Saturn wants us to work for our rewards and will push us and teach us perseverance and responsibility. When in opposition, quite often someone else is influential part of the picture. Perhaps someone is pushing us or perhaps they are standing in the way. In many cases, oppositions are considered a challenging aspect. It can indicate that those people involved are what make us push ourselves even harder. They may be a hindrance but a beneficial one. Because of them, we might feel that in order to achieve what we are trying to do, we have to try harder and not let anything come between us and what we want to achieve.


The Sun in some ways is similar to Mars in that it is often associated with our goals and the push we might have in reaching these objectives. The Sun can speak in terms of inner drives and ambitions and, depending on the sign our Sun is in, will be the way we propel ahead in terms of these aspirations. Since Saturn is in Capricorn and is in opposition to the Sun, the Sun in our post today would have to be in Cancer or late Gemini or early Leo depending on when you read this post and the degree that Saturn is in at that time.


Those with their Sun in Cancer are often home bodies and the family is very important to them. They have a need to nurture and care for others and are often considered very sensitive to the vibrations and experiences around them. If Saturn is in opposition to your Sun in Cancer you may be experiencing some challenging conditions linked to the family or perhaps the home. Alternatively, there may be obstructions from an emotional perspective linked to the working environment or your occupation. Much will depend on what house your Sun is found in within the birth chart.


If, for example, your Sun is in the fourth house and Saturn is in the tenth house, there could be some challenging conditions linked to the home and work. Perhaps one is more demanding than the other and you have to decide how to spread your time fairly. Perhaps your occupation is creating difficulties at home and you need to stop bringing working issues home with you. Perhaps there is the potential that you might lose your job in turn affecting the home environment and your sense of security. An extensive review of the natal chart and other transits will help define how this opposition is playing out in your life.


Although oppositions are said to be demanding and challenging especially when we are speaking of Saturn, if you take the time to see what lessons are in place for you to learn, you can move through this adversity and grow from it. Saturn often provides challenging conditions in life for us to gain strength from and eventually Saturn can create a more suitable condition which promises more stability and structure for the future. Much depends on what you choose to do with the energies at hand and how you handle them from an emotional perspective.


Let’s see how this pans out over the long haul and be sure to do your due diligence. Remember to acknowledge how this might help you over the long haul.

PROGRESSED SUN CONJUNCT THE NATAL ASCENDANT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 28, 2018 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


The Sun, whether natal or progressed, tells the story of our vitality, our energy and our ability to recuperate. It also deals with the ego and governs the success we are able to attain in life as well as our ambitions. The Sun is also representative of the Father (or masculine parent) and other male authority figures prominent in our life.


The progressed Sun moves one degree per year and over a period of a lifetime will not move too far from its original position at birth. It will make semi-sextile to the natal Sun at 30, semi-square at 45 and sextile at 60 and for those lucky enough to live into their 90’s, they will experience the square at age 90. The Sun will, however, also make many aspects throughout our lifetime to other planetary placements in the Birth chart, including the Ascendant. In order for it to reach the Ascendant, the Natal Sun will need to be within 90 degrees of the Ascendant (11th -12th house) to make any connections to this very significant place within our life time.


The effects of the Progressed Sun on our Ascendant (if this will come into effect in our chart) will cover over a three year period and the middle year is the most significant as this will be when it becomes direct or 0 degrees in separation to this placement. This conjunction can produce both negative and challenging conditions and can also suggest positive or reinforcing life conditions that will aid us in moving forward in life, again if this aspect takes place in our progressed chart. This is partly due to the transits that will make contact to this placement over this period of time as well.


In a positive sense if and when this conjunction occurs, there are often potential opportunities for advancement in our profession. At times, people in authority will aid us in achieving our goals and become motivating factors in our surge forward. In some cases, these opportunities come to the Father or more dominant parent. In a woman’s chart, this is often a time of marriage or engagement and offers opportunities for meeting up with a suitable partner, especially if the Vertex is involved or Venus and Jupiter.


The health is usually good when the conjunction has positive aspects from transits affecting it and whatever we are trying to achieve has greater chance of success.


If, however, this conjunction is receiving negative aspects from other planets in transit, especially outer planets, the chances for success are greatly diminished or we would have to work very hard in order to achieve the same level of success that the positive aspects would provide. Much of what transpires depends on the planet transiting the conjunction and its house placement as well as the house placement it has natally. We can also look to the house it rules in the Natal chart to get more information as to how events may unfold and what areas of life will be involved.


There may also be difficulties in the health of the individual although we would have to look at the overall condition of the Natal Ascendant and Sun as well as any planets in the twelfth house, known as the house of ingrained health issues and confirm if they are poorly aspected.


When the progressed Sun advances towards the Ascendant, we may feel a draw to make changes to our life that would enhance our world. Some will make changes to their appearance while some become involved in exercise routines that enhance the body. Paying close attention to our well-being is always recommended and especially so when this conjunction is about to take hold in our life.

SHARING IN THE HEALING PROCESS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 27, 2018 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


There are many different healing modalities, one of which is Reiki. Reiki, originating in Japan, is a form of alternative medicine for stress reduction and relaxation which promotes healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called laying of hands or hands-on healing through which the "life force energy" flows through the practitioner to the patient in order to promote emotional, spiritual and physical healing.


What is a parent’s first instinctual action when a child falls and hurts themselves? Most parents place their hand over the injury or rub the injury to sooth the child. This is a “Natural” reaction.


Reiki can be practiced either as hands-on or by long distance healing.


The individual receiving the energy can either consciously or unconscious accept or reject the energy. It is a Reiki practice however to obtain the receiver’s permission, if at all possible, prior to a Reiki session. If a person is not accepting, than their wishes should be respected.


With or without the addition of any healing modality, it is imperative to realize that our thought process influences our ability to heal or to be healed. It is certainly common for most of us to worry about our loved ones when they are ill or have suffered from an accident. We should reminder ourselves though that when worrying your focus is not a positive one. Sending love is. By focusing on the “what ifs” in a negative way, we are sending out energy of worry and concern which does not promote healing.


Whatever we focus on is what we are provided to any given situation. So when we are worried about health, we ask the universe for more health concerns.


Focusing on love and compassion, we ask for more of the same. Picturing the body or individual in good health only attracts more of this. If we concentrate on how good things are or how good things are becoming, the ability to heal is increased substantially.


When focused on any illness of your loved ones, we are not suggesting that you are creating the illness disease, but you are certainly not assisting with the healing either.


Positive focus (in all of life matters) is essential for a positive outcome. By envisioning someone as healthy and robust, even if at that moment they are not, will help the healing process.


No matter how many healing modalities are utilized and how positive we keep our focus, each of us eventually reaches our time to complete our journey. Our positive focus and our healing practices can, however, help make the transition a smooth and more comfortable one.


See the positive in all that takes place in life because if we look deep enough, even during crisis, we will find it. Release expectations as expectations can create much disappointment and stress. Treat each other just as we would want to be treated and allow your love to touch each person you meeting. This is your best gift to the world and to yourself.


Your healing ability is immeasurable.

FULL MOON DECEMBER 22

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 21, 2018 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


We will be experiencing the Full Moon (called the “Cold Moon”, “Wolf Moon” or the “Moon before Yule” according to “TimeandDate.com”) on December 22, 2018 at the critical 0 degree in Cancer. This (degree) is known as a Aries degrees. This Full Moon comes into effect at 12:50 p.m. EST tomorrow. There is a wonderful sextile from transiting Uranus to the Moon which is accompanied by a very nice trine from transiting Uranus to the Sun.


This Full Moon is said to be a lucky one, as the need and desire for love and affection as well as nurturing moves from within to manifest externally.


The Aries degrees are the zero degree mark of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. They are said to be very powerful in their expression and often when connected to the MC bring notarization to the individual with this placement. You can allow a two degree orb of influence so anyone with an MC at 28 degrees mutable to 2 degrees Cardinal will have this in their chart. It often suggests an influence in the world or recognition in some manner for those with this connection.


Those with planetary links to this positon will be affected by this Full Moon’s positioning on a personal level.


It is said that this positioning on a world level is promising, especially because of the Cancer placement. There is a need for love and affection in our world and there is no doubt about that. Let’s see what we can do as individuals to heighten this lunar expression. The more of us focusing on this energy and the more of us that get involved, the stronger the outcome can be.


On a personal level those with this connection can use these positive energies to help bring forward love and affection, not only for family but also for the world at large. If you have it connected to one of your planets or angles then take a look at which planet it touches and combine those energies with the nurturing qualities of Cancer. Look at the houses that these positions are located in and this will be areas of life that are affected and can be utilized in a forward motion to direct this energy outward.


The sextile from Uranus to the Moon can indicate opportunities that come out of nowhere or work through avenues that are unique. This energy can bring change on a positive note. Uranus is all about awakening, disruption and change. These energies from Uranus cause us to look at life’s situation and make changes or sometimes it makes external changes for us. It points towards a new direction that may deal with family and nurturing and may also assist in domestic concerns.


Make the best of this energy as the holiday season approached. This is the perfect time to make changes and make things happen.

SUN IN CAPRICORN 2018-2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 20, 2018 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


The Sun moves into the earth sign of Capricorn in the late hours of December 21, 2018.


Earth signs are usually quite practical as well as methodical and productive. As you can imagine they would do well with occupation that require these qualities. Capricorns are known as being stable, security minded, somewhat patient and often live grounded in the material world. We are not suggesting that they only live and breathe making money, although it is often part of the thinking process, but they plan ahead and have patience in reaching their objectives.


They can be counted on to do a thorough job and can be skillful within the working environment. Many Capricorn aspire to become managers as production is important to them. Some reach out to make a name for themselves by quietly yet persistently moving up the corporate ladder. They know it takes hard work and are also willing to wait, taking the tried and tested route. They appreciate their superiors as long as their superiors have experience to back them, and they can work side by side with these superiors as well.


Depending on what sign the Moon is in in the natal chart, many Capricorns have difficulty showing their emotions. This is not to say that they have no emotion. They are as emotional as others, perhaps even more so. They do not have a clear avenue of expression, however. Because of this, some people think of them as being cold and emotionally distant.


Capricorns appear to be quite reserved and steadfast in their approach.


Transiting Saturn will be in its home environment (sign of Capricorn) for all of 2019. This indicates that anyone who has their Sun in Capricorn in most any degree (check your ephemeris for details of Saturn’s transit) will be experiencing the conjunction in place at some point throughout the upcoming year. Because transiting Saturn is in its natural placement in the sign of Capricorn, this will be a favourable position for those with their Sun within orb of the degree while transiting Saturn is moving through the zodiac.


Saturn often asks us to demonstrate consistency and become obligated to whatever we are doing before it actually pays off. This often deals with our profession or professional duties and some may gain recognition for their hard work from their superiors. Those that have their own business may see a slow but steady rise in business in the upcoming time, but of course, the whole chart would have to be examined carefully to see what other influences are taking hold.


Saturn promotes positivity and some type of gain due to diligent effort and often pays off in dividends bringing structure and stability into the picture. Hard work will, however, likely be part of the process that can lead to success. Don’t take any shortcuts along the way if you have this conjunction in your chart. Be diligent and also transparent with an honest approach in whatever area of life you are trying to achieve in.


The area of life will be determined by the positioning (house location) of the natal Sun and transiting Saturn, but also have a look at the position of natal Saturn in the birth chart for more information. How Saturn is aspected will also help give a clear picture of what potential lies ahead.


Use these energies to propel yourself forward, but a patient approach is the best approach to reaching these objectives.

WINTER SOLSTICE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 19, 2018 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


We have so much going on in the next few days, we have to post our Winter Solstice a little early. We will experience the sun entering into the sign of Capricorn on December 21 just before midnight. We will enjoy the energies of the Cancer Full Moon on December 22 and we will celebrate Winter Solstice (Hibernal Solstice) on December 21.


The Winter Solstice or Yule will take place at 5: 23 p.m. EST this year (2018). For your convenience, to check the exact time in your area please utilize this link - www.timeanddate.com/calendar/winter-solstice.html


Day’s light has been quickly disappearing, and December 21 will be the least amount of daylight we will experience in the northern hemisphere as the sun is currently on a very low arc in the sky.


The great news is that the day light will start to extend and our precious morning and evening light will soon return. The arc of the Sun’s path will heighten and the days will slowly lengthen. As nature sleeps and the light is low, we can take advantage of this time to reflect on our journey.


What have we achieved over the past year? Where has our growth been plentiful and where might we be able to focus a little more, if we so choose?


This is the time to plan our intentions for when the energy and the light returns. Mother nature always knows best. Life is easier when we follow her example (look at the rest of nature) to rest and nurture our inner self so that when the light and warmth returns, we are ready for the return of the energy that nurtures us mentally, physically and spiritually.


Our current lesson is patience and this is one not easily learned. Utilize the wait to look deep into the shadows of self. We can bring light into our darkest corners and fill each corner with love and allow spirit to grow.


Is it coincidence that during Yule season (the rebirth of light), many celebrate the birth of Christ (the symbol of rebirth of salvation)? This IS a time of celebration for many, whether it is Yule, Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza, etc.


We have so much to celebrate.


Be filled with promise, with faith in all that is, with gratitude, with love and with inner and healing light!


Blessings to all from Holm Astrology!

LOVE AND LIGHT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 18, 2018 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


How important is our personal expression to the world?


We can speak words of encouragement to others and give inspiring messages that stimulate others to push forward. We can challenge others to push through their adversities.


Our greatest message is communicated through love and example. We can be the light that illuminates these examples.


Will your example to the world soften hardened hearts?


Does your influence travel far enough to reach those less fortunate and give them hope?


Does your message provide strength and encouragement for those facing darkness to provide them with finding their peace and contentment?


Open you heart and shine your light for others to see.


Be open with you true nature.


Can you be the conduit for love that this world so desperately needs?
