HINTS ON CONNECTING WITH YOUR GUIDES, PART II

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 21, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


We are continuing our post on meditation and connecting with our guides from May 16, 2019.


We cannot stress how important it is to stay open to the possibility that each one of us can get to experience great meditations. All too often people listen to their ego and they come to believe that they could not possibly have a meaningful contact with their guides and higher self. Ego may suggest that we are not evolved enough or not spiritual enough or simply not able. Any thoughts that say it can’t be done are ego generated. Everyone has the ability; it is a natural born ability for each and every one of us.


When attempting to contact a higher source, we can create the feeling that we are waiting for someone to knock on the door or for someone to walk in. We should know they are coming and that we are waiting on them to enter or make themselves known to us. This anticipation opens the door and allows the energies to enter our awareness.


Many of our guides operate on slightly different frequencies. Some may have a difficult time communicating, while others are quite adept at communication. Once we open the door, they enter freely and easier.


Be God centred and call in those who are highly evolved. Do not hesitate to make this requirement known. Ask for the pure of heart and for guidance that will further our pure evolution. Above all else, do not let fear (ego generated) to enter into the experience. Fear will slam the door closed and halt everything. Do not align with ego and its fear-based focus. Our ego is not who we are and we should not identify with it.


It may take time but eventually we will begin to recognize when our guides are in our presence. It can be a feeling, it may be a message, a taste, a smell, a knowing. Their energies can often be felt once we are able to recognize them. Many people ignore the signs as they do not recognize this communication as such and the messages pass them by.


These experiences are called super-natural. Think of these words and we will understand that it is a normal, natural process that we over evolution have dismissed. As children, we were told that we should stop our imagination, our exploration, our innocence, our openness. Now as adults, we yearn for that childlike openness and awareness. Allow that door to reopen to our natural perception.


We can connect with our angels, our guides, our higher self and our family members that have passed over simply by realizing and accepting that they are with us. Persevere and if we are persistent and open we will experience and receive the messages.


We will find what we are looking for if we are open to the subtle energies, for those that come calling are gentle, compassionate and loving souls. These guides stand by us and are always ready to assist us any time we ask.

SUN IN GEMINI - MAY 21, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 20, 2019 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (0)


The Sun moves from a fixed earth sign, Taurus, into the mutable air sign, Gemini late on May 21, 2019.


There is quite a difference between these two signs. Taurus is about reliability and structure as well as a gradual push toward material achievement. Gemini, on the other hand, is spontaneous and adaptable. They are usually changeable and are open to learning often through life experiences.


While Taurus can be fixated in its opinions and what might be referred to as surefooted and stubborn, Gemini can be open to suggestion and versatile when it comes to having an opinion on almost any matter whether it is considered important or not.


As you can imagine, anyone who is cusping from Taurus to Gemini would likely live their life as if they were two separate beings.


Gemini wants to learn to build knowledge and to be well spoken. Conversation is extremely important to anyone with a strong Gemini influence in their chart. They have a lot to share and are most likely better at talking than they are at listening.


Gemini is willing to take chances and lives in the moment. They need excitement perhaps not as much as your typical Leo, but life has to have an imaginative quality and be an adventure. Gemini’s personality is changeable, moody, excitable, mentally stimulating and wide open to what life has to offer. Gemini individuals would benefit from learning to finish what they set out to do and to not allow themselves to become bored if they are not being stimulated on some level.


Gemini is inquisitive and able to mould themselves to shift to any given situations. They are even open to confrontation, unless it gets physical. They certainly enjoy a good debate and they don’t have to be right. In most cases, ego will not get in the way of learning.


Gemini individuals are ruled by the planet Mercury, the planet of the mind and many are considered intellectuals. Mercury however will need to be well placed in the natal chart and not have too many challenging aspects to it. Even with challenging aspects to Mercury though, Gemini will find a way to work things out.


At present, Jupiter is in Sagittarius which is in opposition to many of those with their Sun in the sign of Gemini. You will have to check the ephemeris to see if your Sun will be in opposition to Jupiter this year. Jupiter remains in the sign of Sagittarius for most of the year moving into Capricorn towards the end of 2019. Jupiter, although it is in what is considered a challenging aspect to the Sun, actually works well in this position. Jupiter tends to expand on things, bring good luck and sometimes easy flow. There are exceptions, however, but growth on some level is often associated with Jupiter.


The Sun has to do with our goals in life and also our most inner self. Jupiter in this position may expand or bring forth feelings of opportunity for advancement. It may also expand on your inner awareness.


With an opposition aspect, you may get hints from others or this information/opportunity may be stimulated from outside sources. Oppositions often refer to other people being part of the equation. You may have to make some adjustments along the way, but the door can be opening for you. This will bring opportunities for growth in your life.


Enjoy the energies at hand and use them to propel forward.

FULL MOON SCORPIO - MAY 18, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 17, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


We will be experiencing the harvesting energies of a Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18, 2019 at 5:11 p.m. EDT.


For longer range plans and motivations set in place some 6 months ago under the energies of the New Moon in Scorpio look for end results now. The Full Moon’s energies are conducive to reaping the rewards from all of your efforts made to this point.


For shorter range objectives, look back to the last New Moon was in Taurus on May 4.


Under this current Full Moon both of these previous “planting” periods that would have been taken advantage of can now reaching the final stages of development (if you have put the necessary work into your goals that you set).


With a Full Moon at 27 degrees Scorpio, this is a powerful connection with potentially deep-seated ramifications. This is a very emotional placement and also likely a very sensual and driven placement as well. If you have planets located close to this degree (up to 3-4 degrees separation) and either in conjunction, opposition or to a lesser degree square, trine and sextile to this placement (see www.holmastrology.com for information on these aspects), this Full Moon will be affecting your natal planetary placements. Be sure to look at the position of the Full Moon by house position as this will be the area of life that is being activated and then have a look at the aspects to the natal planetary positions (house position, aspect and planetary energy) as this will give you further insight.


This is a very high-strung energy where the emotions are high, and you can expect a certain degree of volatility with this placement.


This can be a sensual positioning with strong sexual drives linked to the emotions which, to say the least, run deep. It is a mysterious connection where secrets may come to the surface or at least be brought to the surface for those involved and then hopefully appropriately dealt with. The connection is also likely tied to the mystical or occult. Delving deep into these profound subjects with an analytical eye on self is highly suggested, even if you have nothing touching this position.


Self-reflection is never a bad idea, although honesty is a general requirement for all essential information to be revealed. If you don’t like what you see, you can make changes and if you like what you see, adhere to what is exemplified.


There is also a connection to the planet Mercury. The Moon will be making an opposition to Mercury in Taurus at 24 degrees. Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, is suggesting that although Scorpio is rather subdued and internalized, you need to communicate to receive more information and collaboration with what you are coming to terms with.


Mercury in the sign Taurus wants to take a rational approach to what is surfacing and Scorpio, which is the Moon’s placement, is all about emotions. As a result, it is important to rationalize emotional impacts and sensitivity to the sub-conscious can be quite the challenge. Oppositions usually suggest that other people are involved in the equation and this is, in part, why you should take into consideration open and honest communication with others.


Communicate your emotions.


Remember the tighter the orb of influence from the Full Moon to your natal planets, the stronger the energy and impact.

HINTS ON CONNECTING WITH YOUR GUIDES, PART I

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 16, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


Neither our family members who have passed over nor our guides are ever very far away. They are with us frequently especially in times of need.


Our guides can change over time as they are there to help us during specific times in our lives and when their specific energies and expertise match our area of required growth at the time. Many guides can come and go but there can be specific guides that are with us throughout our life time.


For those wanting to enjoy a clear connection with their guides, meditation is an invaluable tool.


For those that have never meditated before, to help get started, there are guided meditations available through many online sources, and you will undoubtedly find at least one or more that will work well for you. Our particular personal vibration will fit certain procedures or methods more than some others. We can keep trying difference methods until we find one that works best or resonates with us.


Do not expect some over-the-top experience. The connection is very subtle at least in the early stages. It is like a muscle. It takes practice and experience to get consistently proficient at clearing our mind.


Alternatively, we can meditate without guidance and simply use the sounds of nature or complete silence in our meditation practice.


Some meditation experiences are simple silence and peace. Do not underestimate this experience. It is a wonderful one. This is an ideal method to reduce the chatter and rejuvenate the soul, mind and body. This mediation can certainly brings us strength and courage during trying times. To quiet the mind also helps us to de-stress.


Meditation practices are a tool to clearing the stress and chaos of life. This can be an invaluable practice to opening up to our guides.


There are certainly times when we are connecting yet we are completely unaware of the subtle communications. This lack of awareness often deters some of us from continuing our practice as we feel as though we are getting nowhere or that our progress is stifled.


Watch for ego interference. Ego will tell us that we are never ready for this connection. Rest assured that we are always ready and we would not even be attempting to connect if we were not.


Some meditations allow the subtle voice within to provide us with helpful information. This quite voice does not operate the same way that our speech does. We may catch our minds repeating the message offered by our guides because this information does not come through on normal channels. Some people’s experiences are that the words received from spirit/guides/higher self are not actually in the form of normal spoken words as the message is received instantaneously. The message received does not take the normal time for the information to be processes such as when we are listening to oral conversation. It is as though everything is said in an instant and comprehension is complete and clear also within the instant that the information is provided to us. It is as though a whole sentence or even a paragraph is said instantaneously, all at once and this is foreign to the physical mind so our mind repeats the words.


Experiment with different ways of meditation over the next several days and we will continue our look a connecting with our guides on May 21, 2019.

TRANSITING NEPTUNE SQUARE NATAL VENUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 15, 2019 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)


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


Neptune’s energies suggest that we go beneath the surface and uncover the truth of the situation or life conditions which are in front of us.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

THE RIVER OF LIFE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 14, 2019 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)


No matter what our expectations may be, life is always on track.


This journey is not always a smooth ride. After exhausting efforts to paddle up stream and getting nowhere, we hopefully at some point allow the boat of life to turn around and flow with the current. By doing so, we allow our faith in the process to take over. The current of the water (energies of life) is set in motion to guide and assist us throughout our journey. Our expectations and attitude can make the ride rather rough or these expectations and our attitude can make the journey enjoyable. More often than not, we do not recognize that we have this choice.


We can certainly make adjustments along the way but we will never conquer the current by trying to paddle up stream. Our focus and our attitude towards the journey are what guide our boat.


If we are unhappy with our journey, we have to examine why we feel that way. What expectations have we put in place?


What lesson do we need to learn to continue downstream smoothly?


Nothing within the river is there to hinder our journey. The rocks are not there for our convenience or detriment. They just are. If we run into one, maybe it was time to stop and utilize the rock as an anchor to take time to appreciate the view.


When we come to a “Y” in the river, we can take either route. Both will lead us to the ocean. One route may have more rapids than the other but once we have committed to which direction we are going, there is no turning back or we would be paddling against the current again.


We can’t place the blame for the current in our river of life on anyone or anything. The route with the rapids may be more of a struggle but the lessons learned to navigate safely are invaluable.


Life has many choices and paths to follow. There are many avenues of expression along the river of life. We cannot wish the obstacle to be gone but we can certainly learn to maneuver around them or use them to our advantage.


Remain focused throughout all of life’s experiences. Stay true to yourself and do what must be done. Never take the lessons being taught to be a personal provocation.


It is also important to understand that allowing is not a form of giving in or giving up. Letting go and giving up are two very different choices.


You have what it takes to overcome whatever comes between you and contentment (usually your attitude).


If you get stranded as most of us do from time to time, do not be afraid to reach for the life lines thrown to you. Remember, we are not alone in this journey.

TRANSITING PLUTO CONJUNCT NATAL JUPITER

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 13, 2019 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)


The potential for success and growth during a conjunction between Pluto and Jupiter depends much on the effort and the approach you use during this period. You will have the ability to pursue your goals and aspirations when this aspect is in your chart, but will you move ahead with the energies offered?


Will you allow the mind to interfere and obstruct your efforts because of ego intervention?


Ego can certainly have an impact when dealing with the energies of Pluto. The proper frame of mind and the ability to motivate self is essential for taking advantage of these energies. You have the availability for a powerful push if you need it and will find persevere in the face of adversity, if presented.


You have the ability to succeed in many areas of life with this aspect. Take a look at the houses involved with this conjunction when and if you have this aspect in your chart. The house of the conjunction and the house where natal Pluto is located will be the areas of life that are being affected by this conjunction.


You may be reviewing your goals in life and how you fit into the overall flow of your journey. Do you fit well with others? Are your objectives for the betterment of all concerned?


You will have to examine your priorities before you push ahead. Make sure that your actions are not to build your ego and that others can also benefit because of your actions.


This can certainly be a metaphysical or spiritual connection if this is where you choose to place your focus. Both planets are geared in this direction and Jupiter will foster growth and expansion, while Pluto brings forth a rebirth of your focal ideologies. Regeneration and a resurgence of spirituality may be high on the agenda and a new religious (we are not speaking of traditional religion though this too may be the case) outlook may be the outcome.


You have the perseverance and aptitude to move forward in almost any endeavor you wish to undertake now.


You may need to take a good close look within and see what you need to cultivate and what needs to be revamped or removed. It is best to be honest as you cannot fool yourself and the energies at work can bring forth change that might not be pleasant if you are being untrue to yourself.


Growth and some form of prosperity are the rewards for a job well done and Jupiter offers this, but some digging and hard work are required. Get to the bottom of any situation that needs rectifying at this time. You have what it takes right now to walk this road with integrity and move ahead in leaps and bounds. You will never look back once you make your decision. The changes brought forth will be permanent and also what is required for the growth that you seek under this influence.


Pluto is all about transformation and regeneration and will aid in truth in your endeavors undertaken during this aspect. Pluto will only make this conjunction once in your life, (if this is founds in your chart) so make sure you use the energies at hand to accomplish something worthwhile and satisfying.

TRANSITING NODES THROUGH THE BIRTH CHART

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 10, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


The transiting Nodes take 19 years to move through all of the signs of the zodiac in an Astrology chart. It takes approximately 1 ½ years to move through one single sign.


As houses depict areas of life, the nodes moving through a house will define areas of life where we are gaining knowledge. We get a deeper understanding of the areas of life governed by the house position of the nodes.


Remember that there are two nodes, a North and South node, and they are always in opposition (opposite) to one another. Both houses will be affected by our nodes’ placement.


The Nodes are attached to our soul’s mission and we have come to experience life more fully in each area of life that the nodes are influencing in the birth chart. In general, we are here to serve on one level or another and although the Nodes definitely teach us valuable lessons in life, once learned and understood, we can offer up information and assistance to those that are interested in the information we have to offer which will assist them in whatever way needed.


The nodes are tied to our destiny so when we are experiencing our nodes in action, stimulated through house contact and planetary links, we have obligations to fulfill. Remember we came into this life to fulfill our life’s goals which are closely linked to the nodal positions at birth. We have to give a little of ourselves in order to complete our soul’s requirements, as we have much to offer. Our higher connection to self (from a spiritual perspective) and the earthly measures we take assist us in getting one step closer to our higher purpose. We have come to serve a purpose and to learn lessons through experience and to add to the greater whole.


We are at the controls of our experiences but often when the nodes are under hard aspect, or activated through transit, we may feel as though we are at the mercy of life’s events and life seems to have control over us. This is when we have to use our inner guidance, our spirit guides, our astrology charts or those wise individuals that walk this journey with us to work through life’s events. Many times the overall plan behind our experiences may escape us consciously, and we have to find the faith in the process that is required and recognize that there is something much bigger at work than what is obvious to us in human form.


The North Node always pointing us towards our objectives. When the North Node is transiting a point in our chart, it asks us to go deep into our lesson. It asks us to think about what we might want to do or where we might want to address change or gain through experience. The North node operates in the same fashion as Jupiter, so it offers us opportunities and provides us with good luck and generally makes us happy and more content in our life’s progress when we follow its energies.


The South Node acts in similar ways to the planet Saturn. The South Node wants us to pay attention to what can be learned through the potential rough spots that we may encounter along the way. It offers lessons and responsibilities and makes us aware of our liabilities. The South Node makes us work on these areas of life which are in focus and the energies of the planets that are being activated through this contact. Although we may have to sacrifice or let go of something, it also offers up chances for spiritual growth through these experiences and lessons that need to be well learned. This knowledge will be used as our lives progress.


Stay open to advice being offered from both nodes and use the energies of the North Node to facilitate growth in your life’s quest. Use the energies and lessons of the South Node with caution and care but recognize the importance of what is being said for your greater good. All aspects (regardless of which aspect it is) has something important to give. Leaving the door open to this understanding will allow the positive energies of all aspects to generate opportunities in our lives.

CREATING AND DEVELOPING

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


From the very beginning, our lives are conducive to creating including ideas. The ideas for our future probably began before we were born. Our parents may have dreamed and imagined what they wanted for us.


Some plans may have been formulated by someone else, but the action to put a plan in action must always come from us as an individual.


On a primary level, these plans can, but do not necessarily have to, refer to our occupations or material goals in life. These dreams could be the characteristics and qualities that our parents wanted to instil in us as we were growing up. Some parents might be forceful with their ideas of the way our lives should be; perhaps some were fixated on their own concepts and in ways that they believed they personally had fallen short.


Some of our parents may have believed that if we stepped out alone it would not be safe for us. They wanted to keep us safe. By doing so, were they denying us opportunity to grow or did they actually keep us safe from harm?


Some parents want to ensure their children have strength and the abilities to move forward on their own without having to rely on others. By doing so, were they denying their children the ability to learn to share their fears and emotions or did they build strong independent people?


Some parents wanted their children to fulfill their own needs in some way. The possibilities of all parents dreams and goals for their children are endless.


Many of us, as we matured, make changes where we believed changes are required and we hold on to things that we felt resonated with our core beliefs or that we take for granted (never questioned) or do not realize that there are other alternatives. Some of us still struggle with what was taken for granted during our younger years. We knew no different and now we cannot help but question things that we always considered unquestionable. Some of us have never given what they were taught as young children a second thought. Is this wise?


Questions are invaluable. Through study, discovery and openness we gradually built that which we hunger for in our lives. Some of us continually change our concepts and belief structures along the way. This is sometimes essential so that life itself can keep up with our ever expanding growth. We must release the guilt that we may feel towards shifting away from the fundamentals we were taught as children. We must go with what truly feels correct in our hearts (not our memory banks).


We are not suggesting that all that our parents or teachers have taught us was wrong but it is certainly progressive to think outside of the box and be open to new ideas. Questioning can actual verify that which we already know or it can also help us realize that we may have been mislead (intentionally or innocently).


With external connections, we can also practice the same openness...with our profession, with our day to day lives. Do not fear learning new concepts and ideas. Follow your dreams. What we need in life may be somewhat different from what we conceive we need but this too is okay. Dream anyway.


The overall picture of our lives can and will transform into whatever it is meant to become. We personally are our own greatest achievements and our lives are a manifestation of what we have materialized over time. We have brought life to life by our expectations and our belief structures.


What we now have in front of us is an accumulation of all of the details we have set in motion over time.


What more can be accumulated (and we are not just speaking of material things)?


Life continues to develop and grow. What is your contribution?


There are many avenues of expression for each of us. Each avenue of expression is built in perfect harmony for what we require in our lives in that particular moment.


Life is created. You are your life’s creator.

APPLYING & SEPARATING ASPECTS IN THE ASTROLOGY

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


There are three different types of planetary movement in the Natal (birth) Astrology Chart.


The applying movement is when the planets are moving together to form an aspect (unless in retrograde), the faster moving planet is behind the slower moving planet. An example of this would be Mars 19 degree Aries and Saturn 20 degrees Aries. Mars moves faster than Saturn and is approaching Saturn and will eventually meet up with Saturn.


The separating movement is when the planets are moving away from one another. Using the same planets with Mars at 20 degree Aries and Saturn now at 19 degrees Aries, Mars once again is moving quicker than Saturn and is now moving away from Saturn.


Finally there are stationary aspects. The planets that have been in retrograde motion or forward motion at some point appear to be motionless before moving forward or backward in the opposite direction.


Today, we are going to specifically focus on the applying and separating aspects in the Natal Chart.


Even when a Planet is retrograde at birth, it will either be forming an aspect with another planet or separating from an aspect to another planet. The closer the degree is to making an exact aspect, the stronger its energies influence us in our lives.


There may be some planets that do not be making an aspect but this is rare. This is known as a unaspected planet.


There are varying types of aspects in Astrology. The major aspects (sextile, trine, conjunction, inconjunct, square or opposition) are very powerful in the natal chart.


There are Astrologers that have noted that a separating aspect deals with past events or if you like, they represent finished business. Separating aspects have already been dealt with and will eventually fade over time as the aspect continues to separate. Some Astrologers believe that the acknowledgement and correction took place before birth, and we have already made adjustments to overcome whatever the aspect between the two planets describes. The degrees that separate the planets describe how powerful that aspect is in the chart. The closer the aspects the more powerful its energies are. A separating aspect represents perhaps one of the last things that were set in motion in a previous lifetime, but obviously this is speculative depending on whether or not one believes in the possibility of reincarnation.


Astrologers understand the significance of applying and separating aspects and will define its intensity and help delineate the meaning of any particular influence in the Birth Chart when this is part of the delineation process.


When planets are applying, it is understood that the faster moving planet is moving towards the slower moving planet and suggests unfinished business that will have to be dealt with during the course of this lifetime. Once again, the closer the aspect is to being direct by degree, the more apparent and pressing the energies of the planets involved. We have come into this life to address the energies. Only then can we come to terms with whatever the planets and aspects suggest.


The applying aspects become stronger as time passes and the energies will intensify. They push us in directions that will assist us in dealing with the energies represented by these two planetary energies and the aspect they are making. These conditions are dealt with after birth.


Applying aspects are suggestive of future endeavours that should be approached and dealt with. This is not to say that all aspects between planets are challenging-- far from it. You have to take into consideration the planets involved and decipher how well they work together and what aspects are involved before making a judgement call on how the energies will affect us.


Remember the tighter the aspect, the more significant its influence in our lives.


For example, a conjunction between Mars and Pluto is a very strong aspect, but if these planets are separating from one another and are out by 8 degrees compared to an aspect of let’s say Venus conjunct the Sun, (which is a much softer aspect) which is applying and only out by 23 minutes. The latter aspect would have a far greater influence in this individual’s life than the aspect between Mars and Pluto.


It is important to weigh out the aspects and recognize whether the aspect is applying or separating when deciphering the energies contained within a Natal chart and how great the impact will be.

THE RIVER OF LIFE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 7, 2019 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)


No matter what our expectations may be, life is always on track. This journey certainly is not always a smooth ride; and after exhausting efforts to paddle up stream and getting nowhere, we eventually allow the boat of life to turn around and flow with the current. By doing so, we allow our faith in the process to take over. The current (energies of life) is set in motion to guide and assist us throughout our journey. Our expectations and attitude can make the ride rather rough or these expectations and attitudes can make this journey enjoyable.


We can certainly make adjustments along the way but we will never conquer the current by trying to paddle up stream. Our focus and our attitude towards the journey are what guide our boat.


If we are unhappy with our journey, we have to examine why we feel that way. What expectations have we put in place?


What lesson do we need to learn to continue downstream smoothly?


Nothing within the river is there to hinder our journey. The rocks are not there for our convenience or detriment. They just are. If we run into one, maybe it was time to stop and utilize the rock as an anchor to take time to appreciate the view.


When we come to a “Y” in the river, we can take either route. Both will lead us to the ocean. One route may have more rapids than the other but once we have committed, there is no turning back. You can’t place the blame on anyone or anything. The route with the rapids may be more of a struggle but the lessons learned to navigate safely are invaluable.


Life has many choices and paths to follow. There are many avenues of expression along the river of life. We cannot wish the obstacle to be gone but we can certainly learn to maneuver around them or use them to our advantage.


Remain focused throughout all of life’s experiences. Stay true to yourself and do what must be done. Never take the lessons as being a personal provocation and remember, allowing is not a form of giving in. Letting go and giving up are two very different choices.


You have what it takes to overcome whatever comes between you and contentment (usually your attitude).


If you get stranded as most of us do from time to time, do not be afraid to reach for the life lines thrown to you. Remember, we are not alone in this journey.

RETROGRADES EXPLAINED

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


All of the planets move around our Sun in the same direction and have their own cycle time depending on their distance from the Sun.


Retrograde motion is in fact an illusion as it appears as though the planets slow down and then move backwards. What actually takes place is that the planet in question makes its closest approach to the earth and gives the viewer the false visual that it is moving backwards.


The planets all go into retrograde and then direct throughout their full cycles around the Sun. The outer planets are in retrograde about 40 percent of the time (and their energetic affects are generational).


The inner planets go in retrograde for shorter periods of time. The inner planets (Mercury, Venus and Mars) are said to be personal planets and when in retrograde are the most challenging and often require inner reflection, alignment and adjustment. They will force us into action, and this action required is often the best approach once the planet in question has turn direct once again.


It should be noted that if you have a retrograde planet in the birth chart and when it receives an aspect from the same planet transiting in retrograde, the energies will be more intense than for someone who does not have that particular planet in retrograde in their natal chart. It should also be said that it needs to make a direct aspect within five degrees to have a meaningful impact in our lives. The more planets it touches by aspect the stronger the influence.


Jupiter and Saturn are in retrograde approximately one third of the time and are considered less personal and less of a challenge. It should also be noted that when a planet is in retrograde, the normal flow of energy is disrupted and often held back or stifled. Saturn is the exception. Saturn’s energies are actually less restrictive and delayed in retrograde motion. It is considered more favourable in retrograde than when it is in direct motion.


When planets are in retrograde it is a time when we need to reflect and to put our focus on decision making. It is a time for making plans and to change our objectives or our perspective on what this retrograde cycle would be implying. It is important to take into consideration the planet in question and its position in our chart as well as any aspects it will be making. If it crosses a planet for example by conjunction when it turns direct once again it will move across that same position and the energies in place will once again be intensified.


There is also a period called stationary retrograde and stationary direct when, for a few days up to several days, the planet appears to be stationary or not moving at all. It slows down and then stays at the same degree for a short period (the length of time will depend on the planet as some planets will stay in their stationary position longer than others). When it is in this stationary position, the energies are at their strongest and will be intensely felt especially if the transiting planet in question touches a natal planet at the same time.


While in retrograde, you should resist taking action. Know that once the planet goes direct once again, it is time to take physical action. Pay attention to what these energies are pointing towards (planet, sign and house position) and make plans so that you can set them in motion when this retrograde period is over (except as mentioned with Saturn as its energies are less obtrusive in retrograde motion).


Understanding the workings of Astrology can certainly help detect the approach of lessons and hurdles as well as the times to take advantage of energies available or when just to relax and enjoy. Astrology defines in great detail what energies are in play and the time frames that will be involved.

NEW MOON IN TAURUS - MAY 4, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 4, 2019 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)


We are having a New Moon in the sign of Taurus at 14 degrees today May 4, 2019 at 6:45 p.m EDT.


A New Moon’s energies are conducive to new beginnings. It is the planting season in the garden of life. Even if you have had little time for preparation, it is still a good time for beginning something new and as the sprouts of our goals appear, we can adjust the nurturing needs as need be. The Full Moon in Taurus in 6 months will be the ideal time to harvest that which you planet under the Taurus new Moon. If you have nurtured appropriately the Taurus Full Moon will be conducive to harvest. If you neglect watering and weeding your goals, you may have to do some extra TLC to make your harvest viable. If you have been very neglectful, you may have to till under the failed crop and start over.


The energies are always favourable when we experience a New Moon to begin a new project or move forward with a new idea. You will, of course, have to review how this 14 degree Taurus Moon energy will fit in with your natal chart. Favourable aspects will usually aid the success of your goals, while difficult aspects might suggest some challenging conditions with reaching them.


The difficult aspects can still work favourably in the end although you more than likely will have to work harder and be diligent in your efforts.


Taurus can represent material “things” and financial focuses may be part of the process. It may also be a time for material acquisition or alignment with a career opportunity. Much will depend on the house this New Moon is located in within your chart. Taurus loves to build security whether that be financial security or emotional security. In the second decant, which speaks of Virgo energies and especially with an inconjunct (a 150 degree aspect) to Ceres by the New Moon, this can be a time of caring and nurturing those you love.


The building of stability can reflect the building of a bank account or the push towards achieving something that will be profitable in the future or add beauty to your surroundings. Taurus suggests a steadfast approach, where no steps can be skipped over. Plan your actions before plunging ahead and going into this with the idea that it will likely take some fundamental and hard work to achieve what you set out to do.


Do not give in to any pressures and make sure you attend to all the little details (2nd decant Virgo) but don’t be overly critical. If you make a few mistakes, simply pick up the pieces and continue after making any necessary corrections.


This is a good time to move ahead. Do not waste these energies that come our way because of worries about doing it right. Holding yourself back due to inconsistent thinking or over-evaluating will only hamper what you wish to accomplish. Go for it.

INTEGRATED HOAX

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 2, 2019 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)


“Are their doors in front of me that I am unable or unwilling to open?”


“What events (big and small) will I be a part of during this journey?”


“What part will I play, if any, in these events?”


“Will I be able to perform my duties and fulfill my calling?”


These are questions we hear frequently and they are echoes of self doubt or a lack of faith in the process. These can also be reflections of someone who may be unwilling to let go and let life.


No door will remain locked if we are willing to utilize the key. More often than not, we are the keys to these symbolic locked doors in life. The answers we look for are not found on the other side of life’s veil. The answers we search for are wrapped in each and every moment of living. Realization is not some far-out idea or imagined concept that will suddenly show itself to us....one day. As long as we are open to all possibilities, the answers are at our finger tips. We do not have to go searching.


What we search for are not some fantastic concepts or fictional ideas. Truth is very simple and available to us each and every day. It is not something to be found behind a locked door. It is not dormant and it does not need to be awakened. It is already part of each of us, yet some may struggle and push it deep down within. It is part of simple everyday awareness and it lives forever in the eternal moment.


We can simply allow and know that all answers are within our grasp. Listen and we will hear. Pay attention and we will recognize.


Accept life in its simplest form. Do not complicate the equation. Simply enjoy life and appreciate the glorious places it will take you.


Have no expectations. We simply cannot imagine where that will take us. Understand that our minds will interfere but even this interference eventually becomes recognizable and once recognized it controllable.


The integrated hoax that deceives us has us looking for something so peculiar that we feel it is too difficult to find and that it takes tremendous efforts to realize. The simple fact is that we are already living our perfect lives. We are looking so hard for something other than what we have that we take away from the riches that are already bestowed upon us. We are deceived into believing that the perfect life is something that is always out of our reach and as long as we keep searching for more than the perfection we already have , these gifts will never be enjoyed. They are lost in the search for more.


Because of our insatiable search, we never seem to find the answers to our questions. Is this due to the fact that we have not accepted the answers which have already been provided to us? Are we not seeing the tree because of the forest?


Live in the beautiful, perfect moment. Life offers nothing more than this....this moment, right now! Stop....breathe......look around you and truly see your surroundings. See the beauty in all that is. Feel the rush of energy that connects each and every one of us – all living things. YOU are part of this miracle.


Can you feel the fire within? That is living!

SATURN RETROGRADE BEGINNING APRIL 30, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 1, 2019 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)


On April 30, 2019, Saturn begins a retrograde cycle. The retrograde motion begins when Saturn is at its closest point to earth and it appears to slow down and remains stationary retrograde for about 3 days. It willl remains in retrograde motion (usually moving about 7-8 degrees back) and then stations direct for about 3 days after which it starts its forward motion once more.


Saturn stays retrograde for about 140 days. Saturn’s cycle around the Sun is approximately 29 years and when it returns to its original position in your natal Chart, this is known as the Saturn return. During this cycle, Saturn remains retrograde for approximately 15 degrees in each sign.


Jupiter in retrograde has some similarities to the planetary energies of Saturn, which has to do with restriction and delays. Saturn in retrograde however offers energies similar to Jupiter when Jupiter is in its forward motion.


Saturn works in a much less restrictive manner while in retrograde and because Saturn is associated with the past and to some extent past life experiences, there are those that attest that Saturn in this life is affiliated to a past life’s Karma that is brought to the surface in this life. This characterization is connected to the Saturn in the birth chart.


When Saturn turns retrograde, while in transit, it is still unwise to initiate career changes although there is nothing wrong with contemplating future activities. Even though Saturn in retrograde operates better than while in direct motion, the retrograde cycle of all planets is a time that we should be using to plan. If Saturn, while in retrograde, squares the MC or the Sun, it may be wise to wait until it is out of orb of these aspects before moving ahead with any of your objectives. You may do better when Saturn is making a sextile or trine.


It is always a good idea to have your plans in place prior to any Saturn contact while moving through the Zodiac, because Saturn does not like things undone or incomplete. Saturn has to do with business and enterprise and with careful planning and intensive investigation and study, Saturn will provide structure and a solid foundation over time.


Saturn is the teacher and the disciplinarian, but also provides rewards for a job well done. If Saturn makes contact to any natal planets or angles (and Saturn will move between 14 and 20 degrees Capricorn from April 30 to September 18 in 2019 during it retrograde motion), you might want to review any plans and be ready to set them in place for future action. There will be times in the upcoming year that will be more suitable and results would pan-out in a more favourable manner.

OUR WALK OF LIFE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on April 30, 2019 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)


We are continually awakening to the various mysteries that this magnificent journey holds. Life is a magical experience, and it is not out of the ordinary to be in awe as this venture exposes its wonders. Some people feel the oncoming energies and others lie in wait of what is next, but either way, it is always a blessing to learn the lessons, even the more stressful ones.


The experience gained through what we may define as adversity and through which we might define as serene, both enlightenment us. For many, we actually learn more from the more challenging lessons.


We can venture forth with little expectation or knowledge of what will unfold. We live our lives in the moment hopefully aware and appreciative of its splendor and filled with excitement.


Does this sound a little over-the-top to you? Not at all!


When we refocus our attention on the experience without judgement, we see the magic unfold. These moments that we share with those we love and with those we sometimes find less than desirable to be with are valuable experiences.


As we move ever closer to our own full awakening, we know that nothing is by chance. Coincidence is a word only for those who are indifferent and who have failed to see the value in an experience. Nothing is by coincidence.


We can recognizing our own uniqueness yet accept that we share our lives and our connection with the whole.


Do not struggle to avoid your life’s lessons (perceived good or bad) – Without them how do you grow?


Explore your full potential.


You are spirit in physical form. Walk your journey open to all of its lessons. This is YOURS to experience and share.

PROGRESSED MOON CONJUNCT NATAL NEPTUNE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on April 29, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


The Progressed Moon moves through a sign in approximately 2 ½ years and its cycled return, therefore, matches up with our Saturn return (both having a 28 to 29 year cycle).


As you can imagine, this return period can be quite eventful. If you happen to be experiencing this return period now and the Moon is also in conjunction with your Neptune, this period can be enlightening and at the same time somewhat confusing. It will also be a very significant time due to an often challenging lesson period linked to the Saturn return cycle.


In this post, we will focus primarily on the Progressed Moon in conjunction to Natal Neptune. The Progressed Moon aspecting a planet or angle is often an eventful time in our lives. Changes are often in store and family matters and deep rooted family concerns could be part of the process. Much depends on the house that your Neptune is in within the birth chart. Home and family are tied into the equation, if for example, Neptune is in the fourth house. Occupation and life status might be part of the picture if, for example, your Neptune is in the tenth house or to a lesser degree especially associated with relationships matter with the seventh house.


The progressed Moon has an impact on our lives for approximately three months; one month approaching, one month direct and one month separating. It is often used as a timing device, along with the transiting Sun, Mars and Transiting Uranus. The strongest month will be as the Moon becomes direct, (so the middle month).


Neptune in our natal chart can be an area of confusion or an area of enlightenment; much depends on the energies in place defined by aspects and how we assimilate these energies into our lives. Neptune can be quite mystical in its expression and insightful sometimes through visual effects or through meditation techniques.


Neptune can also be quite illusive and vague in its expression tends to make things rather unclear or life can be viewed through rose-coloured glasses. It is wise to ask for clarification during these periods when Neptune is being transited by another planet or when Neptune is transiting another planet or angle in our chart.


If, for example, Neptune was located in the fifth house then this period could be tied into romantic liaisons and affairs. It could also deal with your children or creative endeavors. Changes may take place in a spiritual sense and, if for example, you are in a love affair, make sure that you are not putting that person on a pedestal or viewing them inappropriately. Your view may be somewhat blurred and what you think is there may not be the case.


If, for example, the tenth house is involved, it may relate to your occupation or goals in life and you may not be too sure on where you are heading. Intuition is usually strong at this time, but the mind tends to get in the way, so you will have to carefully weigh out all your options.


One thing is for sure, this will likely be an interesting time in your life and doors may open, light may come into your life and your perception may be clear and insightful or quite the contrary. It will be important to have a look at the rest of the chart and see what it speaks of. We always have to review the chart as well as the natal potential to get the full picture.


Let your intuition guide you through this entertaining and potentially spiritual time in your life. Always take advantage of what life offers and be open to new energies and new experiences.

Transiting Jupiter went retrograde on April 10, 2019, and you may have felt its energies slowing, up to a few days prior to that date. It will remain retrograde until August 11, 2019 when it goes direct again. At that time, its energies will flow freely once again.


If you have planets or an angle that falls between 14-24 degrees of Sagittarius, you will feel these energies more strongly than those without a planet in these degrees.


Jupiter turned “stationary” retrograde on April 10 at 24 degrees Sagittarius and will go stationary “direct” on August 11 at 14 degrees Sagittarius. During the retrograde motion and especially when it is stationary retrograde for a few days, Jupiter’s energies are harnessed and they cannot flow with full expression.


We have noted that people do not feel as optimistic and eager to move ahead under this influence and in many cases the traditional good fortune of Jupiter is stifled until it goes direct again.


Most planets in retrograde suggest that this is a time of review and contemplation. A time of inner reflection as physical progress is difficult.


Since Jupiter has to do with spirituality and religion and life philosophies, this will be a time for inner contemplation particularly in relation to the house position of transiting Jupiter connected in some way to spirituality and philosophy and religious inclinations. Any planet or angle that it touches under this influence will be stifled and potentially have challenging conditions linked to it.


For example, if Venus were part of the equation then perhaps there might be some challenges linked to finances or your love life. Feelings of sensitivity towards those you care for may not be allowed full expression or may be challenged in some way. Once it passes, the degree of the planet in question moving direct in motion, there may be a renewed sense of happiness and the finances (in this example)may flow more freely. Of course, other transits will also have to be calculated for a full evaluation of what might take place.


The retrograde movement usually lasts about 4 months and in August when Jupiter returns to the original position it was at on the onset of its retrograde cycle on April 10, it will be “peddle to the meddle and full steam ahead”.


If you have a planet or angle on the stationary degree, it is most influential. Those that have nothing at these degrees (the strongest is the conjunction and then the opposition) may not feel much of the energy stifling effects while Jupiter is in retrograde.


As Jupiter goes into retrograde motion there is a sense that things are slowing down and as it approaches its direct motion again there is a sense that a path might be taken and an eagerness of what might come next.


Once direct again, the brakes are released and the engine begins to power up. During its retrograde cycle, the normal generosity and optimistic approach that Jupiter often suggests may even stop working or at the very least, will have slowed down. During the retrograde energies, it is time to delve deep and find optimism internally, although you may feel somewhat limited.


When Jupiter stations (appears not to be moving between the direct and retrograde motions), it will exaggerate anything that it touches within the natal chart. You can allow about a 2-3 degree orb of influence when in relationship to a planet or angle, but again, these energies will be much stronger for those with planets between the 14 to 24 degree of Sagittarius.

LIFE'S MYSTERIES

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on April 25, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


As you venture forward uncovering life’s mysteries along your journey, have you ever thought about your contribution to this unfolding story?


Have you ever thought of the integral part you play?


You are unique and there is no one like you! Do you understand that it is not by chance that you are here inthis moment in time?


What is YOUR purpose?


Could we be looking far too deep for this purpose?


Do you expect something earthmoving to take place that will open your eyes (and your mind) to some unknown truth?


What is the truth and how do we uncover it?


We are always on track and life is unfolding just as it should. We must take responsibility for our part in this moment. Do you recognize this moment without moving out of it? Experience this instant as it is..... right now! Focus, see and experience this immediate space in time.


Experiencing the moment is a great part of awareness. It is tuning into the now without any intention or thought about what tomorrow will bring and what has slipped away in the past.


Awareness is understanding the moment and all its intricacies. It is knowing that you are an intricate part of this process. Through your belief structure, you have slowly formulated this moment in time, and with your expectations, you are slowly molding your future one moment at a time. It has been said that we should be careful of what we ask for. With this understanding, pay heed to what you want to bring into fruition.


Be clear with what you want to manifest into your life and focus your energies in that direction. Make sure that your intentions are worthy as these pursuits will not only affect you but they will also have an impact on others. Go beyond material manifestations for what you need will be provided, although it may not be what you think you need.


Life is energy; we are energy. We can transcend our immediate (off the cuff) response to life’s experience simply by focusing our attention in any direction we choose.


There is much that goes on beneath the surface. In altered states of consciousness, such as the dream state and within meditative experiences, we link up with higher energy that assists us in our journey. Be open to the suggestions along the way that assist us in achieving what it is we are working towards. Many times, life’s challenging conditions are our greatest teachers yet we try to avoid these challenges. Be open to all that life offers. Be thankful for all that is.


Often the more difficult the experience, the greater the growth and understanding we obtain. These provide us with internal strength and guide us forward on our planned route. Remove the expectations and frustrations from your experience.


Never be too hard on yourself. It is okay, too, to allow yourself to be human. That is why we are here.


Take life by the reigns and move along your journey always being open to the truth. Open your heart and include love in your focus. When you come to a fork in the road, be open to what might be lying just beyond either route for there are no wrong turns.

A MINI FORECAST FOR SUN IN TAURUS, 2019 - Part II

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on April 24, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


We continue our mini forecast for the Sun in Taurus from April 22, 2019.


Today’s post will focus on transiting Saturn trine Sun in Taurus. Saturn is between 13 and 21 degrees in Capricorn throughout 2019.


Transiting Saturn will be in trine to those with their Sun in Taurus in the degrees that correlate with Saturn’s position through 2019. Once again, as mentioned with Uranus in our post on April 22 and as with any aspect in Astrology, the closer to direct (exact degree) an aspect is, the stronger the influence of the aspect. However, Saturn has been known to become even stronger when it is two degrees past direct. This is because of its delaying effects.


Saturn has a tendency to create roadblocks, offer some resistance, suggests challenges and periods of testing. Eventual, however, we learn what Saturn’s is teaching from its lessons and a solid foundation will be built over time. Hard work is usually indicated, even with a trine when Saturn is involved. The rewards for hard work and perseverance, however, are well worth the effort.


Saturn will push you to think things over especially if it is somehow connected to Mercury. Saturn’s energies want you to rationalize what is taking place and wants you to question where you want to go in life.


Since the Sun’s energies represent our goals and objectives, as well as our inner being and life path, Saturn will help with the decision making and offer viable solutions over time, but not without work on your part.


The trine usually suggests easy flow with little obstruction but remember with Saturn, there are always lessons to be learned and sometimes, we can experience delays (but is this teaching patience?). When Saturn is direct, these obstructions may be more evident than when it is in retrograde. Saturn is the only planet that operates better in retrograde motion.


Listen to what is being suggested under this influence.


In summary of our two posts covering the mini forecast for Taurus, it is advisable to take your time as Uranus (See our post on April 22, 2018) will want action and may even just make things happen. If you have the time or are offered some options which is often the case, think things over and be reflective. Think about the outcome but do not focus on where this change might take you, because honestly you really will not be able to figure that out. With Uranus, expect the unexpected. This makes what might be unfolding rather unsettling for many (particularly if we feel we need to be in control). Just remember life always takes us where we are meant to go.


Over time, Saturn offers structure and stability. Uranus offers change and new adventures. If these aspects tie in together, this will most certainly be an interesting time for those with Uranus or Saturn active in their charts. They overlap somewhat in the fall of 2019 for those with their Sun connected to these degrees.


Otherwise these two aspects (Uranus conjunct Sun and Saturn trine Sun) should not be applied in conjunction with the placement of the Sun and not used in correlation with each other. You need to check the degrees of Taurus (in your birth chart) and of transiting Uranus and Saturn through 2019.
