SUN IN CANCER

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 21, 2019 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)


The Sun moves into the sensitive, emotional and nurturing sign of Cancer today, June 21, 2019, at approximately noon EDT.


All of the water signs can be defined as sensitive and emotional although Cancer tries to cover its sensitivity with an exterior hard shell of protection. Cancer people have a nurturing side which they use to protect those they love and provide them with the necessities of life from a deep and personal perspective. They nurture their family and friends with love and affection and often are the shoulder to lean on in times of need.


They truly and instinctually understand the behaviours of others and will do their best to offer themselves to those experiencing the sense of helplessness and insecurity. They understand these qualities because of their own sensitivity to anything that is harsh and intrusive.


Cancer people are caring to the extreme and give themselves freely. Their strength lies in their emotions. Many Cancerians would not admit to this, instead they might suggest that emotional intensity can be like carrying extra baggage or showing a sign of weakness. Cancer individuals are, however, mothering and have a great concern for the welfare of their family.


Cancerian individuals need a place of refuse where they can go and recharge their emotional batteries. They need a place of solitude although they also enjoy the company of family and friends. Many enjoy the art of cooking and some are the perfect chef. They are quite capable of making gourmet meals that can satisfy the palate of even the most fastidious connoisseur of food.


Most are loving and caring and also have a very gentle quality within their nature. There certain are those, however, that are uncomfortable with this gentleness and will try to be harder than they actually are to hide their perceived “weakness”. Their strength actually lies in these qualities.


If you do not relate to these qualities, you will have to look deeper into the Sun sign and its positioning in the birth chart as well as other mitigating factors within the chart. Sometimes there are other qualities and energies within the chart that completely dilute the sun sign qualities such as an emphasis in some other sign or house. The whole chart always needs to be deciphered to get a clear understanding of the individual in question as a whole.


One perfect example of how a Sun sign can be diluted would be someone with their Sun in Capricorn in the fifth house and five other planets in the fifth house and a rising sign of Leo. The fifth house is naturally ruled by Leo and with having a Leo rising sign and the fifth house influence, the Capricorn tendencies would be softened although the need for personal advancement would still be strong. This person would be much more assertive and outgoing because of the Leo traits than someone without the Leo emphasis in their chart. Capricorn can be introverted but Leo is an extroverted sign. Leo would be much more visible in this individual to the outside world.


Back to the sign of Cancer..........Welcome to this sun influence and happy solar return to all of those individuals born under this sign.

SUMMER SOLSTICE 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 20, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


We will be experiencing the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21, 2019 at 11:54 a.m. EDT. This powerful solar energy serves to recharge our spirits, minds and bodies.


All things are energy and this energy is all connected. Some of us are quite aware of these influential energies and others, are not. With or without this awareness, all living things are affected by the position of the planets at their birth, by the continual movement of the planets, by the influence of the rotation of our earth including the changing seasons and any other shifts that occur in nature.


When guided by spirit/our higher selves (call it what you will), our focus is to walk and live our truth, during the easy times but especially during the times that we are being tested or educated. Take advantage of the strong solar energies of the Summer Solstice to push forward with this focus. Use the more aggressive energies of the Sun to catapult forward and allow yourself to bloom into your own true creation. Just as with the Sun is currently at its fullest potential for our earthly position, you too can allow all of your inner power and beauty to radiate out. This expresses your true self but also benefits each and every other living thing that your energy touches.


What a glorious time of year. Allow yourself to mirror the seasons. We have just experienced a season of wonderful renewal. We have worked hard to create buds of promise. Now is the time to allow those buds to open and to eventually bear the fruits of our efforts but also to allow all other living things to see and experience this beauty and to eventually share our harvest.


Happy Summer Solstice!

WHAT IS A TRANSIT & PROGRESSION CHART?

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 19, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


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


Once we are born, the planets continue their movement around the zodiac and the movement of planets after our birth is known as transits and progressions. Again, however, the birth chart or natal chart placements remains intact for our lifetime. We will not go into detail on the natal or birth chart in this post, but suffice to say the transiting and progressed planets and the “frozen” planets of our birth chart will make aspects to each other and will tell a story over and above the story told by our Natal chart.


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


Astrology can pinpoint when these areas of life will become activated and how these energies may affect you. However, it is important to remember that much depends on the attitude you have during these life events as well as the duration of their effects on your life and to the intensity of what transpired. An Astrology chart can prepare you for these upcoming energies and can provide you with clues as to how to deal with the energies and events or take advantage of what may transpire over the coming periods while the transiting and natal planets’ energies merge.


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


For those wishing to take advantage of these early signs and use Astrology as a guiding principle in their lives, astrology is a viable “advertisement” of opportunities to come, both the easy flow and with harder lessons.


Transits and Progressions offer a window of “seeing” rather than having to move forward without insight of the potentials that lie ahead. A chart can provide you with the upper hand.


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


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


We have the tools available in life to overcome any adversity and also to take advantage of all opportunities. Astrology is one of such tools. With your own personal decisions combined with information provided by Astrology, we can direct our lives and enjoy the natural flow.


Take advantage of the information Astrology provides and have a leading role in your ever unfolding journey.

NEPTUNE & ITS INFLUENCES IN THE NATAL CHART

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 17, 2019 at 9:55 AM Comments comments (0)


Neptune’s influence can be quite subtle in its expression yet dynamic at the same time. Its tendency is to cloud matters, to make things uncertain but can also lead to exciting spiritual enlightenment. Much depends on how Neptune is aspected in the birth chart and by which planets or angles.


A strong Neptune can indicate trouble related to seeing the real picture. There can be a tendency to visualize an ideal and cover up what might be right in front of you.


Neptune can also produce vivid dreams which can be deciphered and used in daily life and it can stimulate the unconscious and activate psychic abilities.


The house that Neptune is located in within the astrology chart will define the area of life that may be somewhat cloudy and vague. Again, however, it can produce vivid understanding of the mystical and insight that will unequivocally describe the nature and expression of that particular house.


For example, if you were to have Neptune in the first house, you will come across as mysterious and intriguing, potentially a mystic or someone with great creativity and artistic expression. This expression could also define someone with musical abilities, as well as someone who is lost in life and uses drugs to escape harsh realities.


Someone with Neptune in the seventh house could be attracted to a mystical type of individual or be drawn to those that require assistance or are lost. Since the seventh house speaks about partnership, someone with Neptune in this house may have a hard time seeing their partner clearly. They may put their partner on a pedestal and once the fog clears, they can be quite upset at who stands before them. It is advised that anyone with Neptune in the seventh and especially those how have challenging aspects to Neptune that they review their chosen partner and even ask others what they think about them before plunging into a relationship.


The position of Neptune is also the place where mystical understanding and spiritual insight might be revealed especially if this is the ninth house or if Neptune is attached to a grand water trine in the birth chart. Pluto in a close sextile to Neptune can also indicate the potential for spiritual insight and psychic leanings, especially if the connection is to the fourth or eighth house. The twelfth house also speaks strongly of psychic potential but it also speaks of confinement and institutions where mental breakdowns and psychic disruption can have profound effects on the mental reasoning abilities.


When Neptune transits through a house or makes connections to planets in the birth chart, it is often quite a difficult transit to handle. Many things associated with the house, the planet and sign can become quite unclear and misleading. Nothing is for certain.


Neptune can also teach you a great deal about compassion and selflessness however, and even in extreme cases, its energies can lead to mystery and even psychosis if the channels are left to fester without the proper assistance to guide us through the illusiveness tied to Neptune. In many cases confusion reigns and things are unclear. The direction can be out of focus and rational may be difficult to achieve. Insight is possible however. Awakening through psychic teaching can be the final outcome.

FULL MOON JUNE 17/2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 14, 2019 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (0)


On Monday, June 17, 2019, at 4:31 a.m. EDT, we will be enjoying a Full Moon at 25 degrees in the sign of Sagittarius.


A Full Moon is the time to harvest the seeds we have planted and nurtured in life. It is the time to enjoy the results of our efforts. The plans set in motion have reached a point where we can view our objectives and realize our progress, or reset our focus and make changes. If we find that the seeds have been sowed in barren soil, it may be the time to walk away from our fruitless efforts.


Sagittarius has to do with life’s philosophy and spiritual undertakings. In many cases Sagittarius’ energies can also be related to visionary quests with religious overtones (not necessarily traditional). Sagittarius is optimistic and open-minded. A Sagittarius influence wishes for nothing better than to offer up something positive that is growth oriented.


Sagittarius has big ideas and expansion is part of its process. There are no half-measures and in many ways it’s all or nothing. When Sagittarius is involved, getting back up on our feet if we are to fall is not that difficult and beginning again is always an option.


It will be important to take into consideration what house 25 degrees of Sagittarius falls within in your natal chart. This will be the area of life that is now ready for growth and expansion. Part of the process, however, is to be realistic in your approach and not to expect way too much. Take one step at a time. Being patient and consistent over the long haul will prove rewarding more often than not. Shooting for the stars is always a good idea but falling short might be more reasonable. The higher you aim, the greater the reward but do not allow ego or your expectations cause a feeling of failure if you fall short. Focus on what was accomplished not what fell short.


It will be important for you to check your natal chart and see if any planets or angles fall in conjunction or opposition to this degree of Sagittarius at 25. The conjunction will tie in to the position of the Moon while the opposition will tie in with the position of the Sun. Full Moons are always in direct opposition to the Sun, while New Moons are always in conjunction with the Sun. The more planets that you have in your natal chart in and around 25 degrees, the stronger the influence of this Full Moon’s placement in your personal Astrology chart.


What is your chart telling you? How can you take advantage of the energies available?

TRANSITING MERCURY AND THE MIDHEAVEN (MC)

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 12, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


In general, transiting Mercury moves quickly through the Zodiac. It moves through a single sign in about 3 weeks.


When Mercury goes retrograde, which occurs about 3 times a year, plans to sign agreements are best left until it goes into direct motion again (each retrograde cycle usually last about 4 to 5 weeks).


Many individuals fear the Mercury retrograde cycle but this cycle should be used as a preparation time so that we can move forward once Mercury turns direct again.


Mercury retrograde would be especially strong in an Astrology chart if it conjuncts, squares, or is in opposition to an angle or planet by less than three degrees and especially if Mercury is retrograde in the natal/birth chart.


When Mercury moves across the Midheaven, this would be a time when our profession or work holds particular importance. Perhaps this would be a time to prepare for upcoming events, or to make significant plans that will have an impact on you and/or others. When Mercury crosses the Midheaven, communication in any form is highlighted. It should be noted, however, in general, the energies of the Midheaven are not directly related to your personal life so whatever events may take place will not have an impact on your private life.


If Mercury is in retrograde, this should be a time when you review any upcoming events or plans that need to be addressed for the near future. You can analyse this information and put the final touches on your plans so that all will be in perfect shape when the time is right to bringing this information or your proposals to those in a positions of authority or to those who will be affected by your plans. If you plan and set goals during the time that Mercury is in retrograde and decide to pursue these before Mercury has turned direct, the potential for these to come to fruition are less favourable than if you were to wait out the retrograde cycle and take action after Mercury has turned direct again.


This is not to say that you will not reach your goals but events may not run as smoothly as they would if Mercury were direct. On the other hand, however, if you are naturally drawn to procrastination then the retrograde period often suggests that you pursue things now.


Which of these apply to you?


Mercury rules the thinking process and how the mind works. The Midheaven or MC deals with plans, our occupations, our life’s status, our ego and our public reputation. It is important to recognize which stage Mercury will be in when reviewing material that you want to make public.


The activation of Mercury’s energies will be in effect much longer if it is in retrograde. Also, Mercury will pass the MC three times before it finally goes direct and passes out of influence of the Midheaven if there is a retrograde cycle involved.


Ensure you use these energies to your benefit in reaching your goals particularly by timing action around the end of the retrograde cycle whenever possible.


If life dictates that you cannot time actions around these retrograde and direct cycles, move forward with caution but remain optimistic that you will succeed. Attitude plays a big part on all that we experience in life.

SATURN RETURN IN ASTROLOGY

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


Our most questioned activity in Astrology is the Saturn Return. The Saturn Return normally takes place at the approximate ages of 29, 58 and 87.


As many of you are aware, the natal or birth chart is a snapshot of the heavens at the moment of our birth. From that moment on, the planets continue on their rotational path around the Sun and this continual movement of the planets is referred to as transiting planets. All of the planets eventually return to their original location at the moment of our birth (natal chart placement) but the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) take a long time to complete this cycle. Saturn takes-29 years to complete one full cycle around the Sun. Uranus takes 84 years and the other two outer planets take much longer and we do not live long enough to experience their return.


Saturn has a profound impact in our lives. It produces situations that can be stressful (if we so allow) and presents us with lessons whenever it (Saturn) becomes activated in our charts.


Saturn is the teacher and it presents us with a crossroad in our development. We are forced to take a good look at our lives and we should make any needed changes when Saturn suggests it. These times can be very trying and can last a significant period of time, especially if there are other planetary forces at work during the same period.


We have touched on houses and their energies in previous posts. Depending on which house Saturn is located in within your birth chart and what aspects it is making to other planets, these particular areas of life (houses) will become activated. The intensity and duration depends largely on the other planets that are stimulating the area, how long they transit and what aspects (aspects are angles between planets) they make to each other. Saturn can also have a lasting effect if, for example, it goes into its retrograde cycle while making an aspect in the natal chart.


If you are going through a stressful period and you are between the ages of 28-30, 57-59 or 86-88, you are experiencing your Saturn’s return. At Holm Astrology, we go deep into your Astrology Chart to look at how Saturn’s return period is or will affect you. We can assist with an understanding of the lessons being tabled by locating Saturn’s position in your chart and its natal aspects, its transiting aspects and the duration of its influence. Armed with this information, you can better understand the lessons at hand and utilize the energies available.


When Saturn has completed its cycle, you can be certain that a new person will emerged with a greater understanding of self and experiences (now behind you) that should have been well learned. Also Saturn will usually offer a more stable and secure structure to your life as it settles in after its initial impact of returning to its birth position.

PLUTO CONJUNCT THE MIDHEAVEN

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 7, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


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


There may be some struggles with personal willpower when it comes to moving forward with their objectives but any challenges will facilitate changes required to further the evolutionary growth of the individual in question. The actual process would be very deep and would describe changes and/or transformations on a fairly constant basis. Any changes that do take place will be of a permanent nature. There would be no half measures with this ongoing process as the transformation is usually on a very deep and personal level. It is most likely life altering.


It should be noted that it will, however, take a transit or progression to activate this natal aspect in an Astrology chart.


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


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


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


When transiting Pluto makes contact with the Midheaven, this period speaks of transformation in the working environment. Depending on the overall conditions in the individuals chart, there would be powerful influences taking place that may involve disruptions and major changes taking place. There may be disruptions with people in power or authority and difficulties simply based on varying opinions. The changes that would take place could open doors for new positions of authority and may offer an opportunity to move up the corporate ladder into a management position.


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

TRANSITING NEPTUNE SEXTILE NATAL VENUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on June 5, 2019 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)


This post can be applied to a natal chart, a solar chart as well as a progressed chart. We will, however, primarily speak of this transit from Neptune to natal Venus.


Neptune is often reactive in our charts and adds elusiveness, mystery and inspiration to everything it touches.


Neptune’s interaction with planets and angles in our chart is quite dependant on what type of aspect is forming. The challenging aspects (square, opposition and sometimes conjunction) can have a sense of evasiveness and illusion and a general feeling of vagueness and cloudiness in the area of life involved (house positions).


The more easy flow and favorable aspects (trine, sextile and sometimes conjunction) can be quite different. The trine and sextile are considered advantageous and often speak of easy flow and favourable outcomes, particularly the trine. The sextile often speaks of an opportunity being offered which we can either take advantage of or sit back and do nothing with the energies. Both aspects often need a motivating factor (found in the birth chart) which pushes us ahead and hopefully we will take advantage of the situation. Some sextiles suggest that things fall in our lap, while others suggest that we need to apply ourselves to use these energies for our benefit.


Venus often speaks of love and affection but can also be related to the finances as well as social activities. Much will depend on where Venus is located in the birth chart and how it is being aspected by other planets either by transit or natally.


A well aspected Venus in the fifth house, for example, tied in with a sextile from Neptune can point towards a romantic liaison and a feeling of falling in love with an idealized lover. In many cases an aspect between Neptune and Venus brings up a red flag of uncertainty, but the sextile as mentioned is quite favourable and often suggests an opportunity that should be taken advantage of.


There may be a spiritual connection or psychic indicators connected to this sextile of Venus and Neptune with a feeling of illumination and spiritual insight attached to the union. This can work out to be a deep-seated love affair leading to a very strong connection.


Continuing along with the fifth house example, the children are also part of what the fifth house speaks of and this love connection may be part of their experience. Sometimes Venus speaks of a young feminine individual and this could be a child or young woman who comes into the picture. In either case, romantic involvement is highlighted and can also be quite magical.


If this were not a favourable aspect, caution is advised with this connection as you may not be seeing thing (the person, relations, etc) clearly.


If this aspect is speaking of finances, because Venus is involved, check the second house matters to get more insight, although the fifth house does speak of speculation and gambling. This is not to say that gambling or speculation is advisable or not, but any type of gamble has its potential positive and negative influences. I would suggest that if you are taking this route, weigh out everything before plunging in.


Interaction with people of a spiritual nature might also be part of this connection. Becoming involved with groups associated with spirituality and the mystical side of life especially if the eleventh house is involved might also become dreamlike.


The possibilities are endless.

(Aspects to Saturn and Pluto)


In our post on May 20, 2019, for Sun in Gemini, we discussed Jupiter in Sagittarius in opposition to the Sun in Gemini.


Today, we will do a mini-forecast including the quincunx from Saturn and Pluto which are both in the sign of Capricorn. This conjunction of Saturn and Pluto will be affecting everyone who has a natal planet close to the positioning of these transiting planets. For those with their Sun in Gemini around the 20 degree mark, this quincunx will be especially emphasised. Remember to have a look at which house these two planets are found within in the natal chart and also which house your Sun is located in. These are areas of life that will be affected by these current quincunxes.


A quincunx or inconjunct is an aspect of 150 degrees and implies that an adjustment is necessary. Saturn and Pluto together can have profound effects. These energies suggest that there is a powerful need for regeneration and transformation while at the same time there is a battle taking place to keep things in order as well as keeping them much the same.


These energies in many ways are opposing forces as Pluto will initiate change while Saturn wishes to keep whatever is already in place. Remember, changes that take place when Pluto is in force will be required changes. These energies point us in a direction that over time we will recognize as essential.


Since the Sun has strong ties to our goals and aspirations, we may be required to make adjustments or alterations to the plans that we might already have put in place. It may be a fine tuning that is needed or alternatively, we may have to let go of what has been started and begin anew.


The Sun also speaks of our inner core and this upcoming period may be a time when we go beneath the surface and dig deep to uncover anything that needs to surface and be re-examined (remember we are speaking specifically to those that have this aspect in their chart). It may be time to make some changes so that in the future we have a solid structure in place that will be of a permanent nature. Nothing can be done in half measures with these planets, and we should pay close attention to what is being presented to us.


The energies between Pluto and Saturn can also be destructive and quite powerful. There can be aggressive intervention on some level that comes to the forefront and will be influencing others. This is especially true if there are other planets in the birth chart that make major aspects to this combination. Squares and Oppositions are especially powerful, although not usually as powerful as the conjunction; much will depend on what planets are being activated by this conjunction of Saturn and Pluto.


Pluto not only indicates transformation and change, it should also be noted that creative change is part of the profile of Pluto and Saturn, although the process may be somewhat difficult and perhaps even intrusive.


Many Astrologers will look at this upcoming transit with some concern; however it is always best to have a positive outlook and to recognize that a positive outcome over time is highly likely. Pay attention to this transit but do not allow yourself to go to extremes with it. Recognize it as a need for change and transformation in your life expressed through the houses they will be residing in. Do not take anything for granted. It is better in this case to move ahead with what you believe these energies are about than to try to ignore what is unfolding in your life.


These planets will be in tight conjunction in January of 2020 when they will be at 22-23 degrees Capricorn.


Enjoy life and participate in its unfolding.

NEW MOON GEMINI JUNE 3, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 31, 2019 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)


We are experiencing a New Moon in the sign of Gemini on Monday, June 3, 2019, at 6:02 am EDT. This New Moon has its placement at 12 degrees in Gemini. Those individuals with natal planets particularly tied to this placement by conjunction or opposition will find that the areas of life affected (determined by the houses position) will become active with this influence.


New Moons are suggestive of the energies conducive to new beginning or fresh starts. With this specific New Moon, it is a time to push ahead with intellectual projects such as continued schooling and educational pursuits due to the Gemini influence. There is an intellectual curiosity linked to this New Moon’s position and advancement or a push in this area can produce viable and constructive outcomes. The key is to stay with the plan and not allow yourself to sway in your focus even if you become bored with the slow although likely steady developments.


There are no major aspects in transit affecting this position of the New Moon and the only minor aspect is a semi-sextile from transiting Mars. Semi-sextiles suggest being in the right place at the right time and Mars is all about drive and ambition. Mars is in Cancer at 12 degrees and the nurturing connection to Cancer can be quite evident with this combination. The mind is agile, adaptable and changeable. When linked with Mars in the sign of Cancer, the need to take care of those we love is high. We might apply this energy through mental stimulation and an applied effort to raise the emotional state of someone close to us. There is an intellectual connection with how we might go about accomplishing this. We can apply energy and drive to this focus, and with consistency, help the individual in question rise above any issues that they may be experiencing.


This may be tied to a family member perhaps a masculine child or parent and may also include housing or homecare and a protective urge with an “instinctive” action on your part. This may be a time when you search for alternative housing for a family member in need and an analytical nature should be applied. Look for a place that offers support from a mental perspective as well as any physical needs. This is especially true if the fourth house is involved and may also be tied in with your children if for example the fifth house is involved.


Signing agreements or making plans for educational pursuits, as mentioned, may also be part of the process and if the natal positioning of planets are tied to this New Moon favourably then this might be a good time to make plans for furthering your education especially if the ninth house is part of the picture.


Early education tied to your children may also be part of the picture if the third house is involved.


As you can see, the house position is very important.


As in the case of all New Moons, this is a time to push ahead with plans and formulate action, especially so with Mars tied into the equation.


Again, being in the right place at the right time may be part of this energy.

THE PROGRESSED MOON AND ITS SIGNIFICANCE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 29, 2019 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (1)


The progressed Moon moves just over one degree per month and moves through a sign in approximately 2 ½ years. The progressed Moon moves through the entire Zodiac at approximately the same rate as Saturn and makes its return in approximately 29 years give or take a year either end to its natal position. The progressed moon return therefore has a profound impact on the Saturn return period.


The progressed Moon makes aspects throughout the whole chart while in the same house for its 2 ½ year stay and will affect each and every planet and angle for a three month period when it makes contact. Again, its influence is powerful and quite influential.


The progressed Moon travelling through the Zodiac will be influential when it is within a degree of being direct with any planet or angle in the chart. The conjunction, square and opposition are the most marked for change and restlessness, and these can often be relied on to create activity in an individual’s life. The conjunction is especially powerful as it intensifies the planetary energies as well as the house placement. The house placement will be the area of life that will be affected and the planet or point in the chart being activated will be experienced through the energies connected with that particular planetary energy.


It is seldom that, when the progressed Moon ties in with the Midheaven, the career is not affected as well as the home and family. When it ties in with the Ascendant, activity often takes place on a very personal level and many individuals with this influence in their progressed chart will also be addressing relationship influences.


With the Sun involved in contact to the progressed Moon, it is often the perfect time to take advantage of opportunities to move ahead in your life’s pursuits especially when the progressed Moon is in positive aspect to the Sun.


The progressed Moon is often used as a timer for events of significance and nearly always suggests that the particular house position’s area of life will be affected. Often fluctuations occur and if, for example, the progressed Moon makes an aspect to Venus in the second house, it is quite possible that your finances will be affected. With Pluto, for example, in the second house making an aspect with the progressed Moon not only are the finances subject to fluctuation but this individual may experience dynamic changes. These changes that take place are often permanent or have a lasting effect. Security issues would also be part of the process with the progressed Moon making aspects to planets in the second house.


The progressed Moon is an emotional indicator and if the planet or angle being affected has several stressful aspects to it in the birth chart, more tumultuous and sensitive conditions can be expected than if the planet in question were well aspected.


The birth chart is a blueprint of your life. It will be an indicator of lifelong challenging conditions or positive influences that will be rectified over time. Some indicators can remain a challenge for many years or work in a positive manner for the individual in question each time they become activated through transit or progression.


Our natal char is our signature and any planet or angle’s energies, regardless of how challenging the condition in the birth chart, can be rectified or challenged and turned around over time. We are not saddled with difficulties on a permanent basis. The challenging aspects in the natal chart are put in place for us to overcome and to learn and gain strength from.


The progressed Moon does not have the same impact that the natal Moon has unless other major transits or progressions are in effect at the same time. The angular house cusps also play an important role when aspected by the progressed Moon, as angular house cusps are indicative of action areas in the chart. These angular house cusps apply to natal placement as well as progressed placements.


Changing conditions are often very apparent when the progressed Moon activates an angular house cusp. The angular house cusps are the Ascendant or AC or ASC, the Midheaven or MC, the fourth house cusp or IC, and the seventh house cusp or DC.

TRANSITING JUPITER CONJUNCT NATAL VENUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on May 22, 2019 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)


Jupiter is known as the great benefactor and often bestows good luck, good fortune and expansion into everything it touches. When connected to the planet Venus, the planet of love and romance, it often brings good fortune into this area of life. It offers a peaceful time, and you may find that your lover or your friends brings out the best in you. You feel comfortable and your mannerisms are gentle and very loving.


If you are in a new relationship, this could be when the relationship will grow to new depths and this aspect will offer not only love and excitement but also enough space so that you can make a choice as to when you want to be together and when you prefer to be by yourself. In a new relationship, which may have a lot to offer, you may find that you want to spend more time together; however, you probably will not feel tied down under the influence of these energies. You find that you both give the other enough space and freedom to be yourselves, especially if Uranus is somehow connected to this conjunction.


This is a great time for social gatherings, and you may find that you wish to share your life with more people during this aspect’s influence. Party going in wide open spaces may be very appealing especially when connected to nature.


Watch for becoming too lavish as Jupiter has no boundaries. Also watch for overspending as when this transit is finished, you may find that you went overboard.


You may also be tempted to travel to lush and beautiful surroundings at this time. Foreign culture may be very exciting to you and you may even meet someone while abroad.


Self-indulgence on some level is likely. Be careful not to overdo things. Many will gain weight during this time as food seems very tasty, especially if somehow this is connected to your Ascendant.


As you can see, you will enjoy life on many levels. You want to be around beauty and anything gruff and abrasive does not suit you during this time. Move away from these. You are meant to enjoy yourself and share your life with those that matter to you most, especially when this aspect is present in your chart.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
