MOON'S NODES - Part I

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 23, 2020 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (0)

There are two Moon’s Nodes in Astrology, the North Node and the South Node.

 

The North Node is tied to your life’s direction and the purpose behind this existence.

 

The South Node speaks about a past life significant to this life and/or an area of life that is comfortable because it is natural or familiar to us. Although the South Node is not the path you are to follow in this life, it does not suggest that you should steer clear of the South Node’s impact in your life, as you can use the gained knowledge from the previous incarnation to help you with your current journey. I know some individuals do not believe in past lives so think of the South Node as the talents that come natural to you.

 

We have come into this life to follow the path set out by the North Node and its energies are defined by the sign, house placement, and aspects from other planets or angles to the Nodes.

 

The South Node supplies us with valuable information that we have brought with us which we can utilize in this life. These are the things or information, as mentioned, that just simply come very natural to us. Falling back into the South Node’s energies indicated by its sign and house position may feel comfortable, but we have come to fulfill the purpose of the North Node position. Throughout our life, we will find that events push us in the direction of our North Node energies.

 

The planetary links to the North Node along with any angles (our Ascendant, the MC, the IC, and the DC) that might be tied to the North Node are something that we need to bring forward in this life and learn to use these energies to our advantage. The North Node is said to have similarities to the Sun and Jupiter while the South Node has connections to Saturn.

 

The planets and the aspects that link up to these two Nodes should be treated in the same manner as any other planetary energy in the natal chart. The planetary energies tie in with the Nodes and emphasize what these energies are about, which includes the angles as mentioned earlier.

 

For example, Mars tied to the South Node may indicate that in a previous life we were a fighter or someone with a vile temper, or a leader who governed through dictatorship or force. The North Node tied to Mars may suggest similar conditions and that in this life we are to pursue our objectives with vigor and use our inherent strength to accomplish what we have set out to do. Mars would provide us with the push to address what the sign and house position of the North Node suggests. However, any forceful or aggressive attempts at power are not suggested.

 

We will continue our focus on the Nodes in our post on October 26, 2020.

SUN TRANSITS INTO THE SIGN OF SCORPIO, OCTOBER 22, 2020

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 21, 2020 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (0)


 

On October 22, 2020, the Sun moves into the sign of Scorpio. Scorpio is a fixed, water sign and it is ruled by the planet Pluto, and co-ruled by Mars. As mentioned, Scorpio is a fixed sign suggesting that once a Scorpio individual makes up their mind about something, they will not be swayed. There is a certain amount of power and intensity in the average Scorpio although they are often quiet and subdued. Scorpio is a water sign suggesting that although the emotions are generally kept under wraps, they are very deep and highly emotional, even explosive under the right conditions.

 

There is a great interest in life’s hidden matters, and this includes any mystery, anything that lies beneath the surface and many Scorpio individuals find the occult and spiritual realms fascinating. They are truth seekers and will stop at nothing when digging below the surface to find what they are looking for.

 

These individuals are quite secretive and there is always something within that they are unwilling to share. Some are interested in what could be termed taboo. Sex, death and the afterlife hold great appeal for them.

 

They are ruled by the planet Pluto and Pluto provides great recuperative abilities. Pluto rules the underworld and is often found quite active in charts during times of death and aggression.

 

Many Scorpio individual have great strength and endurance. These individuals want answers and will stop at nothing and often can depend on their innate abilities linked to the psychic realm and subconscious.

 

Transiting Pluto and Saturn are currently in the sign of Capricorn making a sextile to those with their Sun in Scorpio in the later degrees. Pluto transforms and regenerates and adds intensity and when connected to the Sun in Scorpio individual, (such as currently) will change the course of life’s path offering opportunities to build towards something of significance but only after these Scorpio individuals leave behind what no longer serves them.

 

Pluto always puts an end to things as something new needs to begin. In most cases, there are no halfway measures. It is all or nothing. By December 2020, Saturn moves into the sign Aquarius and forms a square to those with their Sun in Scorpio in the early degrees. This is a much more challenging position than when Saturn makes a sextile.

 

Transiting Neptune is in Pisces trine to those with their Sun in Scorpio in the mid to late degrees of Scorpio. Neptune is located currently (October 2020) at 18 degrees Pisces and remains between 18-23 degrees into 2022. This trine aspect suggests that the potential for spiritual insight and potential visitations from the other side would have a much easier flowing than normal. Those with this aspect should open the door, if so inclined, and seek out the truth behind the mysteries of life.

 

Use these energies, Scorpio, to help gain insight into yourself and other worldly things during these connections. Be ready for transformations and those experiencing the Saturn contact, be prepared for a testing period.

 

All energies can work in positive ways. We simply need to harness the energies available and use them accordingly.

VENUS TRINE PLUTO OCTOBER 21, 2020

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 19, 2020 at 7:25 AM Comments comments (0)

The transit of Pluto to Venus can manifest in several ways. First and usually foremost it speaks in terms of love and romance. Second, it may speak in terms of our finances, material possessions and in some cases, artistic pursuits.

 

When it comes to love and romance, this connection often brings to the surface challenges within an existing relationship that can, under this influence, be dealt with and rectified. It can deepen and bring more security within this relationship if we deal with things appropriately. If there are problems, they usually stem from ego and power struggles. We must recognize them as such and be able to face and deal with them. Sometimes the relationship seems to be running along perfectly and now becomes even deeper and more satisfying. The relationship reaches a new level of understanding and commitment under this influence.

 

If this period brings a new relationship into existence, this relationship can be a deep and a personal one with strong sexual energies. You just seem to know each other instinctively or the dialogue between you is very deep and personal. The potential for change and evolution for both individuals is heightened, and this applies to a newly found relationship or a long standing one. Pluto transforms, regenerates, and speaks of personal change. Its energies can make love relationships profound and have great substance.

 

In general, trines speak of easy flow and a good rapport. This combination brings positive outcomes to life. This aspect is the one we are always waiting for.

 

If this transit of Pluto to Venus brings financial conditions into focus, then it often speaks of potential increases in this area. We may inherit money, come into money through marriage or partnership, even through business associations.

 

Sometimes Venus speaks about creative potential and much recognition is possible under this aspect’s energies. We will need to bring things to the surface and find ways to express our creativity, perhaps through shows, or through the meeting of influential people. It is a time to push forward with our creative insights and let others see what we are capable of doing.

 

Our feelings are stimulated at this time, and we can make things happen. DO NOT sit back in reflection even though Pluto will make this easy to do. Push forward and strive to reach objectives in life, whether this is creative and/or romantic. The energies are in a good place when this aspect is in place, and we should use these energies to assist us in uncovering what we are in search of.

NEW MOON IN LIBRA OCTOBER 16, 2020

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 16, 2020 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (0)

We will be experiencing a New Moon at 23 degrees in the sign of Libra on October 16, 2020, at 3:31 p.m.

 

Allow a three-degree orb of influence to any planet or angle in your natal chart to 23 degree Libra. The Conjunction, Square and Opposition are the three main aspects to consider and then you can take into consideration the Trine and Sextile. The more challenging the aspects the greater the influence of this New Moon in your chart. Remember to consider the house of the New Moon as well as the planet(s) involved and their house position.

 

A New Moon indicate a fresh start, a time to begin anew and strategize a plan of action that will be matured and ready to be harvested when we reach the next Full Moon in the same sign, some 6 months from now. It is important to take into account the houses involved as this will be the areas of life that can be influenced, and you can set your plans with this in mind.

 

The Moon and Sun are in conjunction with one another during a New Moon cycle and are in opposition with one another in the Full Moon stage. A conjunction to another planet will bring an emphasis to the planet involved, merging the energies.

 

Because this New Moon is in the sign of Libra often relationships are part of the picture. A degree of balancing and fairness will be part of the process. For example, if this conjunction is with Mars and in the eighth house, you may find that there are issues related to joint finances and shared resources or issues related to sexual expression. Mars would cause some level of disagreement and potential aggression and in many cases, you will want to speak your mind but you should also be ready for some challenging response from those involved.

 

Libra is about partnership in business as well, and if the tenth house is involved you may find that your occupation and career or life status and reputation may be involved depending on what aspects are involved and the planets which are part of the picture. Libra however usually aims towards peaceful resolutions, and honesty is imperative.

 

There may be some type of legalities especially if the ninth house in involved and potential health or perhaps a co-worker if the sixth house is part of the process.

 

If this is about an important relationship such as a marriage partner, then perhaps the seventh and/or first house will be involved. If this New Moon is forming an opposition then the likelihood of someone else besides yourself causing issues is heightened.

 

Fairness and justice will be primary, and you might have to make adjustments to get the full picture especially if the twelfth house is involved as there may be an element that is hidden in some way.

 

Although considered a minor aspect the quincunx often speaks of the necessity of adjustment being part of the picture. Minor aspects can also play a role in determining what is in place, but the orb of influence is much tighter and should not be considered unless the degree of separation is less than one degree.

 

You can use these energies in positive ways regardless of the aspect or planets involved, but the more challenging aspects and difficulty of the planets involved the harder a resolution. It should be understood that the more work that is required, the greater the chance for something worthwhile to manifest.

MERCURY RETROGRADE - OCTOBER 14, 2020

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 14, 2020 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (1)

The planet Mercury moves into its retrograde cycle on October 14, 2020, and remains in this cycle until November 3. Mercury will be in the sign Scorpio at 11 degrees and moves back to 25 degree Libra over this retrograde period. All planets except for Saturn do not perform at their best when in retrograde motion.

 

Mercury rules communication and can have an impact on travel and has to do with written contracts. In many cases when Mercury is in retrograde, it causes delays and challenges sometimes creating disappointment and uncertainty when dealing with the matters that Mercury rules.

 

While in its retrograde cycle, Mercury seems to have a much stronger effect on those that have it retrograde in their birth charts and also those individuals who have planets in the birth chart that are close to the varying degrees Mercury moves through during the retrograde cycle. Due to Mercury being retrograde, it will pass through these degrees making aspects (use the conjunction, square and opposition) to planets. This can create challenging issues related to matters such as the signing of documents, making plans and starting projects or moving ahead with these projects. Mercury will impact these planets three times while in retrograde, once in direction motion and again when it crosses the same degree in retrograde and then once again when it returns to its direct motion.

 

Many people fear Mercury while it is in retrograde as it seems to create frustration and delays. The ideal way of handling Mercury’s energies would be to wait until it goes into its direct motion before moving ahead. However, you should not put your life on hold if things are already in motion. You can expect some degree of challenges in many cases.

 

This is a great time to review and examine any projects if possible. Sit back and take some time to analyze the situation before plunging ahead. Be more flexible with your plans whenever possible.

 

It has been noted that intuition is often high at these times and you may feel things before they happen or just know when something is wrong.

 

Do not become overly concerned as it is not an end all situation when Mercury is retrograde. Sometimes plans just needs minor adjustment before you make the final decision. Do not sign on the dotted line until you review all the details and are certain.

 

If your intuition does play into it then listen to what is being suggested. However, when reviewing your chart and if Neptune plays a significant role in negative terms, watch out for your imagination to have a role in what unfolds.

 

Take your time, reanalyze and review.

ASCENDANT RULER, ITS SIGN AND HOUSE PLACEMENT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 9, 2020 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (0)


The Ascendant in our natal chart is formulated by our time of birth, while the Midheaven is formulated by our place of birth.

 

The Ascendant in short defines our external expression to the world. It is what a person sees when we first meet them. It can define our appearance, can denote our grandparents, speaks of our vitality (along with the Sun and other components in our natal chart) and is often quite different from our Sun sign expression. If we have a soft Sun sign like Capricorn or Pisces, an Ascendant sign of Aries or Leo will over-ride some of the more soft character traits or more subdued traits defined by these Sun signs. This is why some people do not identify well with their Sun sign or visa versa, do not identify well with their Rising sign.

 

When we are describing our Ascendant sign it is important to take into consideration its natural ruler and which house this ruler resides in, within our natal chart. For example, if you have a rising sign (Ascendant sign) of Capricorn, you will have to see where its ruler (Saturn) is placed in your natal chart. Once you locate this house position, you will be able to further define how you represent yourself including Saturn and its significant characteristics as well as how this would be defined in its house position.

 

Saturn for example, suggesting a Capricorn Ascendant, found in the second house, depending on the aspects to Saturn, may suggest a critical view of the potential for success in finances, or if favourably aspected, a secure financial foundation. If poorly aspected, this may surface as someone who has low self-esteem, someone who is unsure of themselves, and in turn, creating security issues, which may be reflected in their ability to do well when it comes to financial matters. Someone with a favourably placed Saturn in the second house may do well in the financial world, building a solid financial base over time and as a result feel secure about themselves.

 

Our example is just one expression of how Saturn might be reflected in the second house and it is important to know that although Saturn will often suggest challenging conditions linked to the area of life where it is found (house position) we can always find ways to work our way through these obstacles. Saturn usually means that there are lessons in that area of life as well as gain secured through a diligent effort on our part. Saturn is the disciplinarian but it is also the teacher and our greatest ally to the building of a solid structure as time passes. Saturn often delays or restricts, but can be quite favourable once we decide to work at what needs our attention.

 

Another example might be someone with a Sagittarius Ascendant with Jupiter in the fourth house in their natal chart. This individual might appear to be overly optimistic, a freedom lover, a believer in finding the truth, a philosopher to others, and someone who may say things without considering what impact their words may have on others (foot in mouth disease). When we take into consideration Jupiter in the fourth house, these attributes may be seen through family and friends or they may try to push these qualities or learned experiences onto their family. They may also find luck and opportunities somehow related to their home environment perhaps earning potential through property or good luck attached to the home or land investments.

 

Adding to this information in our example, in their outer expression, these Sag Rising individuals may be verbal about their family and proud of their heritage and may also be optimistic about their family and proud of their children’s attributes. They may also come across as caring and nurturing as well as psychic in their expression, remembering that the natural ruler of the fourth house is Cancer. While in the former example the natural ruler of the second is Taurus, so building a proper foundation would be important for this individual and they may also be somewhat withdrawn or appear to be holding back in their expression.

 

I hope these examples have helped to explain the importance of the Ascendant’s natural ruler and the house this ruler resides in within our natal chart.

INNER PLANETS IN TRANSIT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 7, 2020 at 7:25 AM Comments comments (0)


When we are dealing with the transits of inner planets, which would include the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars, their influence is often of minor significance, as they pass quickly through the heavens. An inner planet moving direct, without retreating in its retrograde cycle, can have a lasting effect of up to eight days when making contact, as long as there are other factors influencing our chart with the same energies. Mars and Venus can last as much as 6-8 days depending on the orb of influence you allow.

 

In general, although transits from outer planets can be felt up to and including 5-7 degrees approaching, some people are even sensitive to their influence before this time. The influence of these planets are in force as much as 2-3 degrees when they are separating. The orbs are about the same or a little less with inner planetary transits. Mercury, Venus and Mars move approximately one degree per day as well as the Sun which moves roughly one degree and one minute each day.

 

The Sun and Mars, however, are often used as timers in Astrology and can set off an outer planetary transit while in orb which can be quite impacting. I have personally known of someone who had transiting Pluto in opposition to natal Uranus which was in the seventh house and at the same time they had transiting Mars directly in conjunction with Pluto which was also conjunct with their natal Mercury. During this contact, this individual had experienced the death of someone very close to them. As you can see, transiting Mars played a big part in this unfolding story. This does not mean that when Mars and Pluto form a conjunction, or any other challenging aspect, that the potential for an important death will be part of the picture. With this particular individual, they were in opposition to Uranus and Uranus was in the 7th house and natal Pluto was found in the eighth house. The progressed Moon was also making an aspect of significance as well as other indicators in the personal chart of the individual that passed over on that particular day. There need to be many indicators in charts when something as drastic as this would happen.

 

Mars, depending on which planet and what angle, can signify an event that should be guarded against. In some cases, this can be a violent action or aggressive individual or an accident.

 

In other cases when Mars is making favorable aspects to natal planets it may be a time to move forward or act. Mars, as well as the Sun, can help initiate something important in life and if we take advantage of the energies at hand and use them appropriately, we can move ahead in our pursuit. Planned action is always suggested.

 

The progressed Moon and especially Transiting Uranus also speak of the timing of events. Mercury on its own will have little impact while in transit as it needs to pick up energies from other planets in the chart to even become detectable.

 

Venus and Mars have a stronger influence, particularly Mars, although they are more noticeable when they are making a conjunction, square, or opposition to a planet or angle in the birth chart.

ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 6, 2020 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (0)


If you find yourself in a relationship that is harmful, emotionally or physically, but feel you must keep on giving, because it’s the right thing to do, you need to examine why you feel this way. Be truthful with yourself. How can emotional or physical abuse be valuable in any way?

 

All relationships have issues that must be dealt with. It is imperative to deal with the issues before they grow. Abuse can move forward in baby steps until a relationship no longer looks as it once did.

 

Once abuse is seen as “normal” in a relationship, the abused is too afraid to walk away or they feel they have too much invested to walk away.

 

Ask yourself “Am I happy?”, “Am I safe?” Be honest with yourself. Evaluate the circumstances you live under.

 

Perhaps there are also children subject to witnessing or experiencing these events as well. Do we want them growing up thinking this lifestyle is normal? What lasting effects will result?

 

If your partner is not willing to make changes, review your priorities and see things as they are. Love yourself enough to take action with your best interests in mind.

 

You are entitled to a life of peace and love. Any thoughts of retribution or denial or even thoughts of self-worth will need to be questioned. Do not hesitate to reach out for professional assistance.

 

Your future is waiting for you. Release the past in order to live today. Give yourself permission to make changes.

 

You have the strength within. Do not doubt yourself. Believe! You are worth it.

TRANSITS FROM URANUS AND NEPTUNE WITH SUN IN LIBRA

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 5, 2020 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (0)

(Mini Forecast)

Transiting Uranus and Neptune are both making quincunxes to the Sun for those individuals with their Sun in the sign of Libra. Transiting Uranus is at 9 and 10 degrees in the sign of Taurus in retrograde, while Neptune is in the sign of Pisces which went direct yesterday, October 4, 2020, at 22 degrees. Uranus stays in retrograde until January 14, 2021, and moves from 10 degrees down to 6 degrees of Taurus.

 

The quincunx or inconjunct is an aspect of 150 degrees. You can allow 2-3-degree orb when approaching your Sun (or any other planet in your natal chart) and an orb of 1-2 degrees while separating.

 

The Quincunx is considered a minor aspect although when it is direct to any planet including the Sun, it is considered quite difficult and challenging. It has to do with the need for redirecting the energies of the planets involved, as it feels as though the energies cannot merge with one another. You need to redirect the energies in such a way that the areas of life defined by the house positions can integrate with one another and work together. This takes adjustment on your part and as these energies are not something that is hidden or weak, they force you into action or are pushing you into action (similar to the way a square operates). First, however, you need to become aware of the energies in place and then move forward in redirecting them in a more cohesive manner and this can be difficult.

 

Uranus in the sign of Taurus seeks to redefine and assimilate something new and original into your life that offers both stability and structure but at the same time also conveys information that the way things were, now needs adjustment. Uranus seeks the new and pushes us in the direction that is more suitable for our ongoing evolutionary quest for understanding.

 

Neptune in the sign of Pisces is at home as this is the ruling planet of Pisces. Neptune in its lower octave speaks about disillusion and fragmented truths, often pushing us to look at life from a more realistic approach although vision and intuition play a strong part in the unfolding. Because this is a challenging aspect, it will be important to view the areas of life involved from a practical, sensible, and accurate point of view. Do not be led by illusion and look at the area of life indicated by house placement with clarity although this will be difficult as feelings and insight can deflect from what is real.

 

The Sun has to do with our path in life and our objectives and goals that we set for ourselves. The Sun is a personal planet in that it is our life force and who we are internally which may be revealed to outside sources or may be kept private depending on the individual. Because the Sun, in this case, is in the sign of Libra the area of relationship may be a huge part under scrutiny at this time. There is a need for adjustment and perhaps reconciliation and fairness and of course justice when it comes to matters of importance. There is a need to find balance and harmony but through a new alignment or alteration when Uranus is involved and the need for honest interpretation when Neptune is part of the picture.

 

This can also relate to business associations, social interaction, the need for refinement and things of beauty but above all else the need for peace and balance. Do not try to deflect what needs alignment. Work towards a resolution that is fair and just. Work with others but also make sure that your needs and objectives are part of what unfolds in a favorable manner. It may likely be a difficult one to maneuver your way through.

 

Do not forget that transiting Uranus will go direct in January, 2021, so you may have to go through the process once again as it crosses your Sun for the third time, once when direct, once when in retrograde and once when direct again. The final pass, however, will see you through the resolution.

 

Check to see if Neptune or Uranus is within orb of your Libra Sun.

PLUTO IN TRANSIT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 2, 2020 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Pluto’s abilities to transform and regenerate are highlighted when it is traveling through the birth chart. There is nothing subtle about Pluto’s influence and you will be quite aware that something needs to be changed or altering when it makes contact. Pluto’s energies are abrupt and disruptive in their actions and the changes that Pluto is putting on the table need to be reworked and transformed so they fit life better. When Pluto is finished transiting through a house or linking up with a planetary placement, its energies will have significantly changed things and usually in a very permanent manner.

 

Pluto is associated with actual death and is usually present in some way when someone passes over. It does not always mean literal death, but it does mean that a condition or life element is no longer suitable and change is needed. Therefore it does signify the death or end of a situation and then the beginning of something new.

 

Pluto, as mentioned, is not subtle in its release and sometimes you have opportunities to make these changes, and other times they just happen with little or no control over the situation.

 

If Pluto links up with Mars or Uranus, care is required and focus on not putting yourselvf into dangers way is important. If there is a square between these planets, there are challenging conditions due to the contact, and they come at you for a reason.

 

Watch for arguments and aggressive behavior especially if Mars is concerned and particularly if the aspect is an opposition.

 

The trine and sextile aspects are not as aggressive and usually suggest transformation at a high level and although somewhat challenging to accept, these transformations will benefit you in the long haul.

 

Uranus is more unpredictable and this is the one you need to watch, if, for example, you are driving a motorized vehicle. Operate with more care than normal and never rush. Do not rush out to drive in fits of anger or after an argument. Take the time to settle yourself down. If you are confronted by an aggressive individual, do not put up a fight unless you have little choice. It is best to walk away whenever possible under this influence.

 

These, of course, are extreme cases and normally, there have to be other aspects suggesting much of the same before these energies are released in a powerful way. There needs to be at least 3 aspects in a chart all saying the same thing before things necessarily happen and much depends on the other planets involved and the angles they are making.

 

However, it can be a rather tumultuous experience and you will learn a lot from it. It seems to be human nature that we learn much more from adverse life conditions than the mild and mellow experiences.

 

We may have to spend a little time meditating on how the energies can be released in a more gentle and positive manner.

TEACHERS OPEN THE DOOR

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 1, 2020 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (1)

There are countless learning tools at our disposal.

 

Always be open and allow others to teach us what we need to learn. These lessons are received on many different levels, but in many cases they reach us through our subconscious connection. We meet up different individuals throughout our lives and they often impart their own special information in very subtle ways. They could be referred to as teachers or guides and some may even come through on meditative channels. We will certainly meet guides through this connection.

 

It is important to realize that although these people or spirits enter our lives on varying degrees of awareness, they help to open the door. We, however, must take the steps to accept or reject these lessons on our own accord. We are never forced to move in any directions although there are times in life when this seems to be happening. Life will present us with opportunities and sometimes we are at the mercy of life and there seems no alternative but to push in a particular direction.

 

There are teachers amongst us. They help us simply by being and acting without knowledge of what they are imparting our way. Children are often a great form of inspiration and they are givers of love without expecting anything in return. They simply provide us with nurturing and loving energy and do this quite naturally. These small connected souls never think of what might come back their way because of their actions. As they mature, they are taught the emotional bondage or repayment. How often as a parent have we said to a child, if you do something specific that they do not want to do, I will reward you with something that you like. Children, before being taught the emotional bartering system, simply act from the heart. They are teachers in the highest form.

 

As we mature into ourselves with age and experience, we become better teachers and guides for many others along the road of life. The best teachers are the ones that not only speak and provide information, but they are the ones that lead by example. In the search for self, we need the assistance of those around us, whether that be spiritual in nature or of physical focus. Our guides come in many shapes and forms, but they are always ready to be of assistance in an instant.

 

We might not always like what we hear, as sometimes the truth can be difficult to swallow, but these exposures to truth can lift us up and make us aware of the webs we weave throughout our lives.

 

We are what we need for this moment.

 

Knowledge presents itself on many levels, but we must listen to the information being provided. Growth comes when we are open and listening.

 

Do not hesitate. Keep stepping forward. Follow through. Find your motivation and always be open to learn.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HOUSE CUSPS IN ASTROLOGY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 28, 2020 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (0)

It is well observed that planets located on the Ascendant and MC have a very powerful effect in our natal charts. When these two areas are aspected by transits, quite often things happen and our lives are stirred.

 

The other house cusps are also important when a transiting planet as well as a progressed planet crosses over their cusps.

 

The strongest point of impact to notice a change will be when planets pass over the cusps and this is particularly true if they station on one of these cusps. A planet that goes into retrograde over one of these house cusps can move over this area up to three times and this has an impact on the area of life the house represents and the energies of the planet involved. Once they have moved into the house and will not go into retrograde over that cusp again, then the energies are not as powerful.

 

It has been noted that individuals with a 0 to 1.5 degree Cardinal cusp on the Ascendant and Midheaven appear to get recognition over their life time. Some with this degree become famous or infamous much depends if any planets are making aspects to these areas, which planets it is and what aspects are part of the connection. We are referencing the natal chart and although this is not always the case, for many this is a very real potential. If you move to a different location from your birth town or city, it is important to have a rectification chart prepared as a move can bring on this potential or take this potential away, depending on the positions in the horoscope and how far away you move.

 

In Transit and especially with the Progressed chart, the house cusps become very significant. If for example you have Pluto moving over the second house cusp and this could last up to a year, you will often notice a fluctuation in the finances. Security goes through a transformation and you will uncover deeper connections to feelings linked to security in your life.

 

If the same planet moves across the seventh house cusp, there may be transformations in a marriage relationship or business partnership. Some marriages dissolve under this transit, some relationships are made under this transit. One thing is certain, the relationship itself will go through some challenging conditions when things come to the surface and this will have to be dealt with appropriately. A strong relationship will survive the onslaught of this transit, but a weak one may not survive.

 

It is important to see how the transiting planet makes aspects to other planets during this transit, as this will determine the intensity of what takes place. It is also important to see what the natal potential suggests as several challenging aspects in the natal chart to Pluto (using Pluto as an example) could indicate a real struggle, while mostly positive aspects could prove to be quite beneficial.

 

Pay particular attention to the progressed Planets making a conjunction to a cusp in the natal chart as this could last for a long time. In general, when the progressed planet is within 12 minutes of being direct, this will be when the energies or activity will begin to be felt. As it separates and moves across the cusp it will weaken and eventually pass.

 

House cusps are very significant especially when you are dealing with a solar return period. Have a close look at your chart or have a professional delineate it for you and see what cusps are active and when.

LUNAR NODES

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 25, 2020 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (1)

The Lunar Nodes are considered one of the most influential forces in the horoscope. They are considered powers that lie beneath the surface linking together spiritual intervention and human evolution. Together the nodes, (north and south) signify karmic involvement. These nodes are always opposite one another or in opposition (180 degrees apart) and never vary.

 

The north node deals with our earthly mission and represents in part what we have entered this incarnation to manifest and/or learn. The north node is completely new to us and we may feel somewhat uncomfortable with our mission, as we enter unknown territory.

 

The south node is representative of a previous incarnation and signifies what we have brought with us into this life that can be used to assist the development of the north nodes potential.

 

The north and south nodes are one of the highest regarded when it comes to spiritual and karmic implications in Astrology. The nodes do not move at predictable speeds and move in a clockwise direction or retrograde motion. They take approximately one and one-half years to move through a sign and are used to check timing of events in progressions.

 

We are required to move in the direction of our north node, as this node defines our life’s mission. Identifying with the south node, or falling back into the comfort zone that the south node provides, will not motivate us in our intended direction, although some of the attributes that we have brought with us into this life can assist us and are to be used to push us forward.

 

Our life’s events that are most current have implications and are connected to our past. The two are interlinked and work together. Many find it difficult moving towards the energies of their north node and the higher forces will provide us with opportunities that push us in our intended direction. Our mission is to activate this calling and move toward these north node energies.

 

These nodes are located in houses in the astrology chart which represent areas of life, always opposite one another as mentioned. They are also defined by the Astrological sign that they are located in. The sign and house placement of each node further define our mission and our past incarnation and the why behind our existence.

 

The nodes are suggestive of interconnecting points where karma is connected from a past life and into the present one. Karma is the soul’s interaction with the current incarnation and insists that we fulfil the obligations agreed upon when entering this lifetime. These responsibilities when earnestly pursued will open the channels to spiritual growth, and expansive understanding.

 

Find out what your calling is and the past influences that push you towards you intended direction, through the nodal positioning in your natal chart. The nodes along with your Sun sign and Ascendant are guiding factors that reveal the soul’s interaction and what we have come into this life to do. When you align these three factors, you can have a clear idea of what your purpose truly is.

FALL EQUINOX SEPTEMBER 22/2016

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 23, 2020 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (2)

Yesterday, September 22 we experienced the Fall equinox at 9:30 a.m. EDT.

 

Typically the equinoxes represent the equal division of day and night. The Spring equinox (Ostara) celebrates new beginnings and fresh starts. The Fall equinox (Mabon) celebrates reaping the rewards of your hard labour and gathering the harvest. The Fall equinox is a time of reflection on the harvest of your achievements and often considered a time of change. It is linked to the sign Libra which above all else is a balancing sign. The balance that you need to strive for is the knowing of what you need to hold on to and what you need to let go of.

 

Some consider this a time of sacrifice as you now reap the rewards of your labour and if you have not sown the seeds of life in the manner you should have, you may have to sacrifice because of these shortfalls and count your losses.

 

Astrologically, the Fall equinox represents a balancing point of our self-image and any disapproval that is found in our view of ourselves. We should review our goals in achieving our life’s quest and the conquests we have made in our lives. This review will assist us in recognizing our abilities and true selves.

 

On the opposite side, the spring equinox is linked to the sign Aries and Aries begins things and initiates action. These two points (spring and fall equinox) are known as cardinal points. The cardinal points in the horoscope are known as action points. They are used as timing devices and lead to activity, drive, ambition, and involvement. During these cycles, you should consider this as a time of action -- either related to the start of something or the end or culmination point of whatever action you have already taken.

 

It is a time to actively pursue a course of action, to take control of your life and push forward in the direction of your choice. Cardinal signs are action oriented and strive for activity that is often personally initiated. This will be the time for you to make things happen. Do not wait for or rely on others.

This will be the time to push ahead or count your losses and set new things in motion. Use the energies of the equinox to push you forward and make the changes you need to and address any situation that needs addressing. The time has come to move beyond any stagnated stages of life that have held you back. Now is the time to reap the rewards after a busy season of planting the seeds and nurturing growth. These efforts are now ready to be harvested.

SUN IN LIBRA SEPTEMBER 22, 2020

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 21, 2020 at 7:25 AM Comments comments (0)


 

The Sun moves from a need to be organized and structured Virgo into the desire for balance and harmonious sign of Libra on September 22, 2020.

 

Libra is not a balanced sign; it is a balancing sign.

 

Libra is a relationship sign meaning that relationships, especially when it comes to marriage partnerships, hold great relevance to them. They need relationships of significance to feel whole and are rarely found to be by themselves although of course there are exceptions. Many Libra individuals find that if they leave an important relationship, they are quickly in search for another, or alternatively, someone has their eyes on them as soon as they become available.

 

Libra individuals are very cordial, and most people find them very approachable. The typical Libra individual always wanting to create some repairs to situations that need mending and looking for peaceful resolutions to any conflicts that may arise. These may be personal or with others. Libra individuals always seek the middle ground and make excellent mediators doing what is necessary to make peace available. This makes them likable and they are not too aggressive in pushing for solutions but will make suggestions in gentle rather selective manners.

 

Libra is tied to justice and fairness so when they are trying to solve issues they will be fair. They would do well in the justice system as lawyers as long as they believed in what they were doing and if there were any wrong doings, they would certainly do their part to bring integrity and legitimacy to the table.

 

As mentioned, relationships are important but these individuals are not afraid to speak their mind when communicating with their partner at least in most cases. This is where they make concessions with gentle mediation as the right way is important and they wish to be heard.

 

Libra individuals are intellectuals and, depending on the sign of Mercury, are given to honest communication, although peace is still at the forefront.

 

Those with their Sun sign in the later degrees of Libra will be experiencing the squares from Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter to their Sun. Squares produce tension but push you to make concessions to relieve the pressure. Squares can be challenging and there are often obstacles in the way. In this case, this would be connected to transformation and change in structure or reliability sometimes speaking in terms of relationships or business associates. This can remain in effect until the New Year when both Jupiter and Saturn will move into the sign of Aquarius.

 

For those individuals with their Sun in the early degrees of Libra will now be experiencing the trine which is a much more favorable energy than the square. The stress will be alleviated somewhat although those with their Sun in the later degrees of Libra will still have to deal with Pluto.

 

Those with their Sun sign in the early degrees of Libra (especially in January for those with their Sun in the very early degrees) will find that opportunities to resolve standing problems and find a greater sense of peace in their lives. Jupiter expands and brings good luck into the picture while Saturn restores structure and disciplined action and stabilizes things. Much will depend on the houses involved as this will be the areas of life involved. You would also need to look at other indicators in the chart at that time to get a full picture of what is unfolding, of course.

 

To get the full picture, you can have a professional Astrologer look at your chart in detail.

TRANSITING NEPTUNE CONJUNCT NATAL VENUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 18, 2020 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (1)


 

This aspect between transiting Neptune and natal Venus can work in two very distinctive ways. Much will depend on the aspect that transiting Neptune is making to your natal Venus and of course the house placements that are involved.

 

The more challenging aspects can indicate deception in love and romance. There is the potential that something is hidden or camouflaged, or you may not be dealing properly with an issue related to romantic involvement. Hiding your head in the sand and not facing reality can be part of the equation. It is important to be realistic and to not put the person on a pedestal as you may be disappointed once the fog dissipates.

 

Neptune tends to put a veil of uncertainty over situations and can cause people to view life through rose coloured glasses. Sometimes we need to have other individuals that we trust bring some clarity into the situation. Ensure that these individuals are trustworthy, reliable and speak the truth. Honesty will be important regardless of how intrusive it may be, and a good friend will tell it like it is.

 

The square and opposition and in some cases depending on the planet involved the conjunction will create challenges. The semi-square, quincunx, and sesquiquadrate will also bring some distortion although these will bring more of an irritant our way than the more challenging energies of a major aspects.

 

Love and affection and young women are tied into the energies of Venus along with finances, beautiful material things and sex, although sex is more often an offshoot of the planet Mars. When transiting Neptune makes a positive aspect to Venus (once again the houses involved will play a significant role as they are the areas of life involved), this will be more favourable and pleasing than the harsh aspects indicate earlier.

 

The time while experiencing this connection may be when you meet or recognize that the person you love, and have strong feelings for, is the ideal mate. Love can be idealistic, and romance can be heightened to extremes. It is almost a romance made in heaven or at the very least a love with plenty of affection and romance. That individual may seem perfect or almost perfect. There is a general feeling of fondness and affection that you may not have known prior to this aspect.

 

Although love and romance are high on the agenda and a priority of what this aspect speaks about, financial situations may improve and what seems like a dream come true is possible although other factors will need to be in place to confirm this potential. There can be an idealized view of your finances, perhaps, you just have a different view of your financial situation. Once again, the positive aspects can be counted on as having an easy flow, at least much more than the negative aspects.

 

The positive aspects include the conjunction, the trine and the sextile. The minor aspects such as the semi-sextile, the quintile and others have a less of an impact than the major ones do but may still have a significant role in what unfolds during this union.

 

Venus’ energies also influence the female principle. Sometimes this indicates a young female is part of the equation; and once again depending on the aspect involved, this can be a positive experience or a challenging encounter. This can speak of a baby girl if other indicators suggest something similar. Always use the energies regardless of the planets involved or the aspects in the most positive manner to advance in whatever manner is available. Squares and oppositions are the teachers and trines and sextile are indicators of easy flow and opportunities.

 

Take advantage of what these aspects bring.

NEW MOON IN VIRGO SEPTEMBER 17, 2020

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 16, 2020 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (0)

We will be experiencing a New Moon in the sign of Virgo at 25 degrees on September 17, 2020. New Moon energies are focused on new beginning and pushing ahead with plans that relate to the sign the Moon is in. In in this case, the New Moon is Virgo as mentioned. The house the New Moon is transiting through in your own natal chart will indicate the area of life the energies can affect. In six months when the Full Moon is in the sign of Virgo, you can reap the rewards of what you put in motion under the energies of the New Moon. The reward will be subject to the efforts you use to bring your seed to fruition.

 

Virgo has to do with our health, about having all the pieces in their proper place, and organization and service. Since our health issues seem to be in crisis, this can be the time when we push forward with decisions regarding the best practices we can put in motion or if we are already adapting to the new safety suggests, perhaps this is a time to ensure we are not becoming complacent and follow the guidelines that will keep us safe. It is better to work towards a resolution than to ignore the facts.

 

This can be a time when you organize your life and try to put any missing pieces where they belong. Perhaps it is time to begin to look after your dietary habits and formulate a plan that will make you healthier and provide you with more energy and a healthier outlook in life.

 

Service is important when it comes to Virgo and we are all here to help others in our own personal way.

 

What can you do to advance a cause?

 

How can you help situations that need service and organization?

 

During this New Moon, transiting Saturn is making a trine exact to this placement at 25 degrees in the sign of Capricorn and Pluto is also making a trine although out be 3 degrees which is still within the influential orb. Pluto calls for transformation and Saturn calls for order and this can take place through acts of service in an orderly fashion and this applies to those in positions of power such as government and other authorities. Someone needs to take a leading role so that this trine can be applied in its proper function which is one of ease in flow, with no obstructions and delegate structure.

 

The quincunx to Mars suggests that adjustments need to take hold when it comes to aggressive force and violent action. Mars in Aries can become the aggressor, so, working for others in a service-oriented manner that helps any situation that is running amuck would be advised. The government may need to step in here as well and work with the justice system and correct any wrong doings that stand in the way of peaceful resolutions. We all have a part to play.

 

As mentioned, check to see which natal houses are involved in the equation as this will be the areas of life that affect each one of us in our own personal terms. We have what is needed to make positive change and if we put our heads together, we can do great work.

 

Do not sit back and do nothing. Use these energies to enhance something positive and that can better the lives of those around you.

 

What you do for others, you also do for yourself.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT DC

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 14, 2020 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (0)

When Uranus is in conjunction with your DC it is also in opposition to your Ascendant. Those with their Ascendant in Scorpio will have Uranus on the DC, depending on the degree of your Ascendant. If you have the Descendant in the early degrees, you will have had transiting Uranus on or near your DC since the spring of 2019. At the time I am writing this article (September 1, 2020) transiting Uranus is at 10 degrees Taurus and in retrograde. If Uranus passes over your DC while in retrograde you will experience it once again as it passes over your DC while in direct motion. All of those with their rising sign in Scorpio will have the conjunction of transiting Uranus over their DC in the next 6 years. Uranus moves through each sign in about 7 years and has been in Taurus for about one year, with its return at 84 years.

 

Uranus always speaks of change and some form of disruption to the norm. This does not have to be a challenging experience. What Uranus brings with it is a requirement and growth is necessary. Something new takes form and often we get little hints regarding what this new energy entering into our lives is about prior to the actual interchange. These changes can be sudden and unexpected, sometimes happening in a flash. Uranus is erratic and acts in an unexpected manner. Its timing is so accurate that it is used as a timing device in Astrology.

 

When conjoined with the DC it speaks of changes taking hold in important relationships, such as a marriage partnership. The freedom factor is often part of the equation and if there have been restrictions the relationship will go through changes that work to foster a new approach that suits both parties in a more flowing and favorable manner. However, these changes can be somewhat radical if things do not move along in an easy fashion. Change is a requirement and disruption, or unexpected incidents can take hold if there is not enough transformation to the relationship.

 

Your relationship with yourself goes through changes at this time as well often due to what is taking place in regard to the relationship. Changes take hold or need to take hold in the way you live your life and how you are relating to the relationship itself. If the other person makes the move and facilitates change and disrupts the marriage, then you will in turn be affected in personal terms as well. The changes are unpredictable but as mentioned you will be getting hints along the way calling for alignment so that the relationship can take the turn that is necessary.

 

If you are not in a close personal relationship, then this can indicate a change along the same lines with a business partnership or with a close relationship of significance. In some cases, we are not well prepared for what is needed and have to make alterations to the relationship and how we live our life. There is likely to be some upheaval over a period of time and you will realize that what took place was what was needed.

 

Uranus speaks loudly and often quite clearly as it is known as the awakener and it is always best to go with the flow rather than fight the energies.

CERES IN ASTROLOGY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 11, 2020 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (0)


 

Ceres is the largest asteroid found so far and it is located between Mars and Jupiter.

 

Some Astrologers believe Ceres to be the ruler of Virgo, although much further study needs to be undertaken before we can make this distinction.

 

It has been noted that Ceres has a connection to nurturing and mothering, dealing instinctively with the nurturing of those less fortunate or those that might be termed the underdog. Its complete energies, however, are yet to be determined.

 

Ceres’ influence in the natal chart by sign, house position as well as aspects from other planets or points especially by conjunction, plays an important role in defining its nature. As mentioned, Ceres is connected to nurturing and mothering, and it also deals with family relations. Its sign position defines the things that make us feel nurtured and how we might go about nurturing others as well as how we might nurture our own personal needs.


Ceres’ house position will be linked to the most likely area of life that will be connected to this nurturing need. The influence of the aspects to planets or angles by Ceres will be determined by the nature of the aspect involved. Squares and oppositions as well as some conjunctions are more stressful, while sextiles and trines are more easy flowing. The planets provide their own energy and this energy will need to be carefully defined to reach conclusions as to what the chart is telling us.


Ceres has been linked to food, agriculture, and clothing. It has also been linked to grief and the need to seek out what was lost even if it means derailing everything in order to find it. Ceres appears to love what is considered natural and the simple things in life. Ceres’ energies have to do in part with simplicity, although it is also linked to hard work. It seeks out what is good for us in simple, easy to follow steps and this makes it available to everyone regardless of mental abilities, although as we all know that our perceptions, focus and expectations often have a big hand in our lives.

 

Ceres is connected to the feminine role, although much has changed in this regard over past generations, so it is not always an indication of a female just the feminine.

 

As mentioned, it is tied to hard work, but it should be noted that it does not seek out recognition because of hard work. Ceres in Leo may be an exception to this.

 

Ceres is said to be modest and shows where we can deliver what is needed for our physical existence.

 

Ceres is also connected to the need to face our darker sides and fears in order to rise above them. This is particularly true if Ceres is found in the eighth house or connected to Scorpio or the planet Pluto.

 

Ceres also shows what our early nurturing was like and how it was received, and this often plays a role in how we eventually nurture others as we mature.

 

What is Ceres telling you in your chart?

TRANSITING JUPITER DIRECT MOTION

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on September 9, 2020 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Transiting Jupiter turned retrograde on May 14, 2020 and will become direct once again on September 13, 2020. When planets, with the exception of Saturn, are in retrograde their energies are stifled and do not experience full and positive release of their energies.

 

Jupiter, even in retrograde, could still be referred to as positive energies although its fortunate conditions might not be as evident when moving in retrograde motion. Jupiter stays retrograde for about 120 days during its cycle and moves in retrograde from 10 to 20 degrees.

 

Jupiter will make a square to the Sun while the Sun is in Libra direct on October 10/11, 2020. The square often speaks about getting results from whatever was put into motion during Jupiter’s retrograde cycle. Squares push us ahead as a result of the need to work through situations because they can be challenging. If we accept that challenge, we can see the return from our efforts.

 

While Jupiter is direct and particularly so when it becomes stationary direct and falls within three degrees of a planet or angle in your chart, its energies are very positive and growth on some degree is often evident. Jupiter is stationary from September 12 through to the 14 and will be at 17 degrees in the sign of Capricorn. Check to see which houses are involved to get a clear picture of what areas of life will be involved, if any, in your natal chart.

 

Jupiter has to do with expansion and optimism and during the growth period while Jupiter is direct you can expect potential opportunities and Jupiter should bring good luck into your life. This, of course, depends on the area of life indicated in your chart. Even challenging links through hard natal aspects to this position will be somewhat softened due to Jupiter’s mighty influence. A feeling of good luck and fortunate conditions often prevails under this influence, and in many ways if we follow through, we might very well gain insight and advance during these times.

 

Jupiter can also indicate over-indulgence and in some cases promotes weight gain when connected to the Ascendant, or just a general feeling that we cannot do anything wrong. Cautious optimism might be what is needed especially if connected to Saturn and perhaps this is a time to recognize authority or situations involving power, especially if Pluto is involved. However, Pluto brings change and transformation. Be careful not to step on anyone’s toes.

 

Jupiter will be in direct motion for some time (September 13, 2020 to June 20, 2021) as it moves through Capricorn into Aquarius and then begins its movement into Pisces. You can see it will make many conjunctions to those with their Sun in these positions over the next several months. It will also make many other aspects including trines and sextiles as well as squares and oppositions during this time as well. Use Jupiter’s energies accordingly. This period can be favourable to many.
