TRANSITING URANUS RETROGRADE AND DIRECT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 17, 2020 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Uranus’ is a very revolutionary planet as its energies seek freedom of expression. Uranus’ energies have a strong desire to be removed from anything that has gone stale or no longer serves a viable purpose. Uranus’ energy acts in an unexpected manner, and we can never be totally sure how it will react under pressure.

 

Under most conditions, the area of life being affect by Uranus is the house it is transiting through especially in the retrograde cycle. There is often a feeling that something has to change or be shaken up somewhat before its actual expression is activated. Quite often we get warnings of necessary changes in the area of life under review and then when it turns direct either we make the necessary changes or life makes things happen for us. If we choose to do nothing then life will often take a leading role and quite often it is not overly pleasant in its expression when the energies are forced upon us. Things can happen on the spur of the moment, suddenly, unexpectedly, without warning. With Uranus, we can expect the unexpected.

 

When a planet is in retrograde, the energies related to the planet and the house(s) it is transiting are stifled or held back. The energy is turned inward and a time for review is at hand. It is a time to re-think things, to re-do things and in an attempt to repair things, we can prepare for when the energies are released and then move forward in the new direction of our choice. The best time to move forward in our objectives is when the planet goes direct. Transiting Uranus went direct recently on January 11, 2020.

 

Uranus suggests that this is a time for inner reflection not only with our life but on a more personal level – the level of “who we are”. It often provides us with more freedom of expression and we just want to be who we are, or the new person that is evolving. This is particularly so if Uranus is retrograde in our birth chart. (Any planet that is retrograde in the birth chart becomes more powerful when it turns retrograde through transit.)

 

Uranus is known as the awakener and especially so when it is moving in its direct course. What is being achieved will be dictated by the house Uranus is transiting through in our chart. We should also have a look at the natal placement of Uranus by house and also by aspect as this will give us clues into how things might unfold. As with all of the outer planets, Uranus will make suggestions along the way but it will often create a reaction with little or no direction from us.

 

Life happens and things change. Uranus will be the initiator behind these actions, but remember regardless of how drastic and challenging the conditions may be, Uranus always provides us with exactly what we need. The end result is beneficial.

 

As Uranus goes direct, this will often be the time when these areas of life that are involved will be motivated to move towards the new, to make necessary changes but can be in disruptive ways but these disruptions will only be short lived. Do not spend any time worrying about how things might manifest, as Uranus acts on impulse and without warning and often releases in ways that we cannot be prepared for.

 

Some people fear changes. Those who are more evolved, or open to the new, know that when the timing is ripe and change is necessary, it should be welcomed with open arms. Uranus will take us where we need to go, so be open and listen. We will know which avenue to take, if life does not dictate, that is.

TRANSITING JUPITER CONJUNCT THE MOON

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 15, 2020 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)

This conjunction between transiting Jupiter and the Moon when in force marks a time of positive energy on an emotional level. Jupiter expands on things and adds positive reinforcement when it comes to our nurturing and compassionate side. We truly want to help others, especially those that might be struggling and who feel that no one cares. We can give much of ourselves to others without diminishing our self, or without feeling empty.

 

In contrast, we may find that giving without measure in return provides us with the emotional support that we might feel we need. This could come in the form of help from others through religious pursuits or spiritual endeavours. We will find that the assistance we seek is easily found under this influence.

 

The Moon has to do with our domestic situation, which includes the home environment and also our group of friends and our actual family. We may feel very generous under this aspect and provide others with what they need. We may find that we are especially drawn to those close to us, and we will invite them into our homes and share ourselves with them more than we might at other times. We want to make them feel at home and at ease in our homes. We will go to great lengths to make them feel comfortable and welcomed.

 

Jupiter brings with it good luck and often fortunate times. We are quite willing to share whatever comes our way. There could be those that take advantage of our generosity under this influence so we may have to watch for becoming too extreme in our giving. However, most people will see this side of us for what it is and want to give back what we have put out, if that is necessary. Feelings are enhanced and a general feeling of opportunity coming our way is part of our everyday experiences. Often because of this attitude and belief structure, things actually do go quite well.

 

The only possible challenging condition that might befall us under this aspect (and this is not often the case) but some do fall into feeling so good that they become too extravagant and spend more than they should, eat more than they should and do not look after themselves the way they should. Jupiter wants to expand on everything and sometimes everything will include these things as well.

 

This is a very positive aspect and can help us get in touch with our inner most self. In so doing, this will help us with understanding our inner workings, our own emotional makeup and also what has brought us to where we are in our life’s path. It can open the door to wider perception and intuitive understanding often based on emotional interaction with others. Even if others do not express themselves verbally, we may pick up on the subtle workings at this time. The psychic part of who we are can open up new dialogue that went unnoticed previously or if noticed can now become enhanced and further developed.

 

Take a look at your chart or have an Astrologer review your chart to see when this aspect will influence your life.

Transiting Pluto Conjunct Natal Moon

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 13, 2020 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

This transit of Pluto to the natal Moon suggests intense emotional interaction and change in life. This is a powerful connection and deals with our psychological ability to deal with emotional interactions either with others (people in our immediate environment) or inner dialogue, with the intent of bringing whatever needs to surface out into the open. This is a “feeling” aspect and the energies are not subtle in any way, although the energies may have been hidden up until the conjunction aspect.

 

The energies of Pluto will bring things to the surface and makes us deal with them. In many cases the things brought to the surface are not easy to digest. If our life has been relatively stable and steady, this period could bring about a state of unrest when transformations are apparent and we will have to adapt to them.

 

The areas of life that are being affected are determined by the house transiting Pluto is moving through as well as the natal house placement of Pluto. This transit will also affect any area of life determined by others natal aspects to the Moon as these areas are connected and will affect the overall current conditions. If the Natal Moon has many challenging natal aspects then this can be an emotionally charged time in our life. It might be very upsetting and we may find our self being emotionally abused or mishandled during this time. If the natal Moon is aspected by softer influences, the transformation will not be as challenging.

 

Sometimes the issues that come to the surface are from early life that were swept under the carpet and have now come to the surface or are discovered by others. Sometimes this can be a private time and the events may only involve us personally and the other individual involved.

 

There is great potential for transformations on many levels during this time and especially so with family and loved ones. Any relationships that are based on emotional response can be energized during this aspect.

 

The Moon is often representative of the home and we may find that we move at this time or we make changes to our residence in a big way. These changes could be structural or a major improvement or alteration occurs within the family residence.

 

This aspect may be a little upsetting but we should know that the changes that are taking hold in our life are reflective of changes taking place on an internal level. Life manifests according to our needs and the energy we put into different areas of our life. This aspect will be the preliminary steps required to move us in a direction that is necessary from an inner perspective.

 

Do not fight the process. Be sure to go willingly for the ride when you have this aspect in your chart. It will be a much more gentle transition that way.

CURRENT EVENTS - A MUST READ

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 10, 2020 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Although many of our readers are firm believers in the science of Astrology, we thought it valuable to repost our article first posted on October 4, 2019 to show those that may have some doubt just how accurate Astrology can be. Parts of this post are written for those who follow their own personal chart but we are reposting to highlight current world affairs that are always affected by transiting planets. As always, this post is fairly lengthy but read it through, you may be astounded with the accuracy of Astrology.

TRANSITING PLUTO/SATURN CONJUNCTION

“We have a very powerful conjunction coming together between transiting Pluto and transiting Saturn. These two planets will conjunct one another directly in January of 2020 but have been in force off and on throughout 2019. The transiting conjunction will complete its cycle by March of 2020. Both Planets are in the sign of Capricorn which often pointing towards power struggles and leadership especially related to business and enterprise.

 

Remember, this is a world-wide event affecting everyone at the same time. This could deal with politics and governmental institutions and speaks of challenging conditions causing great disruption and upheaval. On a world scale, we can see this beginning to take place particularly in the United States with the political turmoil taking hold as this is being written.

 

On a personal level, we will need to see what house this conjunction falls in as well as any other planetary influence in the natal chart being affected by this conjunction. The houses define areas of life involved in the equation while the planets from the natal chart define the energies involved.

 

Saturn often speaks of discipline and restrictions in place and also has to do with delays, obstruction and people in positions of authority. Pluto speaks of disruptions and power struggles and major transformations that take hold. The energies of Pluto can be disruptive but are often in place to produce a much needed change of direction. Pluto tends to tear down structures and then rebuild from the ruins. Its energies put an end to conditions so that something new and more beneficial can be built.

 

Saying that the energies of these two giants are intrusive and challenging is undermining the powerful influence that these planets can have on our lives. Words cannot express clearly how powerful these planets together can be. However, although intrusive and chaotic in nature during the change, they do build on creating a solid foundation that over time will stand the test of time and build resilience.

 

Saturn is the teacher and the disciplinarian, and Pluto dictates and removes that which has become stagnant and no longer serves a viable purpose. Pluto’s action is finite and uncovers anything that needs to surface so that it can be dealt with accordingly. What once was, no longer will be.

 

It will be interesting to see how these two energies link together and what the final outcome will be. We, as individuals, will need to address what has been in place and find ways to rebuild on a more structured and solid foundation. Above all else, we must learn from the experience.”

 

For this repost, we thought we should provide dates when this conjunction of transiting Saturn and transiting Pluto will be the strongest. The effects, however, have been felt for a little of time already and will be felt beyond this highlighted period. The strongest should be from today, January 10 through to January 15 give or take a day or two and the strongest day should be approximately January 12, 2020. It will be interesting to see how things unfold

 

Let all put our heads and hearts together. United we can stand together for peace and love so that it can dilute and dissipate the current energies.

FULL MOON IN CANCER/LUNAR ECLIPSE - JANUARY 10 2020

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 8, 2020 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

We will be experiencing our first Full Moon Lunar Eclipse of 2020 on January 10 at 2:23 p.m. EST.

 

This Full Moon will be in the sign of Cancer which means it is comfortable as it is in the Moon’s natural rulership and is said to be quite powerful. The house that this eclipse falls in within your personal chart will be the area of life that is affected. Since this eclipse is in Cancer, and at 20 degree, any planet at or near the same degree especially by conjunction, opposition or square will be affected by this eclipse.

 

Lunar eclipses last in duration of month’s equivalent to the time when we are experiencing the phenomena in hours. Some Astrologers insist that it lasts about 6 months and perhaps lingering effects can make it so. Eclipses often speak of turning points in our lives where we need to take quick action often of something that we have been fighting or contemplating for some time.

 

The Full Moon is known for a culmination of events and the harvest of the fruits of our labour. It is usually not the time for starting things but the time when we reap what we have sowed. Many fear eclipses because of this and although they often bring stress into the picture, the changes often indicated by eclipses are necessary and many times work out for the best in the long haul. Much will depend on how this eclipse will be activated by other transits as well as signature influences within the natal chart.

 

This Lunar eclipse is in the sign of Cancer as mentioned and is often accompanied with strong emotion and is often relationship oriented. It may be time to make an important decision perhaps about an important relationship. It is okay to put some energy into what it is that “you” want for yourself and into whatever it is you actually need. It may involve the home and family and could involve your marriage partnership but much will depend on the areas of life that are now activated in your personal chart.

 

Mercury is also transiting through the same sign (Cancer) and will make a conjunction to this placement suggesting that decision making will be part of the process. Once again this could be challenging emotionally but could very well be best in the long term. The outcome is usually favourable although it may take some time for this to be recognized.

 

Transiting Pluto and Saturn will also be in opposition to this placement and these two planets do not usually work well together. They speak of authority, obligation, duties, transformation, change and sometimes involves ego disputes. Saturn is demanding and Pluto is the agent of change and often disruption. Because Saturn as well as Pluto are in the sign of Capricorn, there may be some discrepancy between the occupation and obligations to the home and family concerns (due to the sign of Cancer). Anyone directly affected by this may have to decide which area of life one is more relevant than the other. Is achievement more important than family and are you balancing your time between work and home?

 

Sometimes Eclipses speak of letting go of things or moving in a different direction. Often it is best to not fight what is necessary and allow yourself to take the right path forward.

 

Sometimes we need to make personal changes and after careful study, we are faced with decisions due to our shadow self being shown and seeing things in the proper light. It is not always easy but changes can occur that will be promising as time unfolds.

 

Allow life to move along as it should, and do not to get in the way of growth and progress.

PLUTO IN VIRGO GENERATION

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 6, 2020 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)

If you were born between approximately mid-1957 to mid-1972, you are the Pluto in Virgo generation, give or take a few months either side of these dates, as Pluto went retrograde during this period (appearing to move backwards in the heavens). Check an ephemeris to see if you are part of this generational positioning.

 

This generation may be somewhat obsessive about their health and cleanliness. They are intensely interested in keeping their body in top shape if they are able, through rigorous exercise routines and proper diet. This may vary, however, depending on what house Pluto is in within their natal chart and the aspects applied to Pluto. Pluto does, however, require work on your part and if we stand by and expect life to do this for us, we would be sadly mistaken at least in many cases.

 

Virgo can become obsessively involved in many things, as these individuals have great analytical perception and the ability to uncover life’s minute details.

 

In general, most Pluto in Virgo individual’s working life is rather important to them and they push themselves to try to find perfection and uncover all of the minute flaws within the working environment. Some prefer to remain in the background rather than being up front and getting all of the attention. Behind the scenes analytical and research work will suit most individuals born with this combination. These individuals would make excellent detectives and specialists in fields such as psychology, parapsychology and virtually any field that requires deep concentration and deep focus.

 

These individuals are usually absorbed in their work and comfortable in knowing that they are doing their best. Doing their best is a compulsive need and this is why they are highly sought after in the working environment.

 

These individuals are inwardly intense, analyzing themselves and identifying flaws. They could become overly critical of themselves and others to the point of a preoccupation, yet have difficulty accepting criticism.

 

When angered, they usually become quite heated yet they can keep most of what they feel inside. They need to find a way to release this pent up anger and stop worrying about issues. This worry can lead to health related issues as life progresses, especially nervous conditions. Rigorous exercise such as running, the martial arts, and anything that pushes the body and releases the mind from the day’s activities will assist in letting go of these feelings. Gentle exercise routines such as Yoga, Tie-Chee can also do wonders for these individuals. Without such physical release, restrictions and dis-ease in the body can occur.

 

These people are normally intense inwardly and need deep studies as there is a yearning for understanding any subject in great detail, especially themselves. A profession in research, institutional occupations or working in government positions would be of interest to these individuals. They make good counsellors, pharmaceutical engineers, and mechanics…..anything related to detailed work.

 

There may also be an interest in all hidden matters, such as the occult and the fields of metaphysics. Any mystery holds their interest and they are great at solving deep internalized issues in others. Most of these individuals, at some point in their lives, will redirect their energy outward after transforming their lives through self-actualization techniques, but not until they have completed a compulsory self-study and understand entirely what makes them tick. Once they make this transformation to a higher understanding, there is great healing power in many of these individuals. They can use this gift to assist others and help them overcome many of their life’s lessons.

 

I would be negligent if I did not point out however that this placement of Pluto can certainly be diluted by other indicators in the natal chart.

MARS RETROGRADE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on January 3, 2020 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Mars has about a two year cycle for its return position. It goes retrograde and this cycle lasts from anywhere between 56 to 82 days. As it approaches its retrograde motion and as it is leaving retrograde cycle, it can remain in a stationary position for approximately 5 to 6 days. The next Mars retrograde cycle is September, 2020.

 

Some say that while Mars is in its retrograde cycle it has similarities to the energy of Venus, but what this is referring to is that its energies are harnessed to a great degree and may be released in a more gentle manner. When Mars is in its direct motion, its tendency is to have aggressive action and it will not hold itself back or fear making mistakes and starting over again. Mars is a forceful energy when in direct motion and its energies is often what propels us ahead in life. Mars direct truly wants to fulfil its requirements whatever that may be, which is often determined by its placement in the chart.

 

When Mars is in its retrograde cycle, as mentioned, its energies are harnessed and there is often the element of fear. This is in part why we feel the urge to sit back and review what we are striving for. There is a feeling that we should at least wait until things are beginning to settle down and become more reliable.

 

Anger and violence have often been attributed to the energies of Mars while in direct motion and this will be curtailed somewhat when it is retrograde motion.

 

Whatever area of life that is involved at the time when Mars is in retrograde motion(determined by the house position), there is a distinct feeling that we need more time to reflect on the situation and this can lead to feelings of frustration. There may be issues about speaking our full truth. It is not that we would lie, but we would be more passive in expression than when Mars is direct. Sometimes there is a fear of making mistakes and this is why we hold back. And what if we do take a stand and move ahead? What if we have to back our initiative up with action? What if this does not meet our expectations? This is how the fear might play out.

 

Mars has also been strongly linked to our sexual expression and much will depend on the sign and aspects to Mars in the birth chart to define how its sexual energies will be released. When Mars is in retrograde motion there is often a feeling of frustration and in some way life seems to be standing in the way of progress. Once it turns direct again, we may find that these energies slowly settle down and things go back to normal.

 

For those with Mars retrograde in the birth chart, which by the way can turn direct due to progression, people often find that life seems somehow predetermined and life events seem to dictate at times. For those that are somewhat inhibited in their expression, Mars retrograde in the birth chart has been put in place to push us to exert our self even when we don’t want to, especially due to a fear of failure or not meeting expectations. We will eventually push our self and promote our self, one way or another. It is likely, however, that we will do so only under the right circumstances and when it feels safe.

 

Fear should not stand in the way of our personal goals and even if we fall short from time to time at least we made the effort and rose above our fears.

MINI FORECAST FOR THOSE WITH THEIR SUN IN CAPRICORN (2019-2020) (SUN CONJUNCT JUPITER AND SATURN)

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 30, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)

As you can imagine there would be a great difference between the Sun conjunct Jupiter and the Sun conjunct Saturn.

 

Jupiter will be having its own effects for those with their Sun in the early to mid-degrees of Capricorn, (from 0 to about 17-18 degrees Capricorn). This conjunct will begin in early December and last until mid-February of 2020.

 

Of course, you will have to look to see if there are other modifying transiting planetary influences in the chart to get a full picture of what this conjunction of Jupiter and the Sun would mean in your particular case. Jupiter would tend to bring forth opportunities and growth particularly in areas related to goals in life. This could include occupation, structural ideologies and plans set forth that would generate development over the long haul. Capricorn knows that it takes time and energy to achieve objectives if you want something feasible and structurally sound.

 

Jupiter has a tendency for exaggeration and is often associated with “the big plan” and sometimes we overestimate what is potentially available to us. However the higher we aim in many cases the higher we attain, so sometimes it is okay to have lofty ideas in place when Jupiter is part of the process.

 

Some individuals will seek out new adventures through travel, although in many cases a place that has familiarity to it might be more pleasing than somewhere completely foreign to us, (for those with their Sun in Capricorn).

 

When Jupiter meets up with Saturn, (we should also mention its connection with Pluto for those with their Sun in Capricorn in these degrees), the story changes direction. Along with the desire to expand on plans and objectives, these Capricorn individuals may now encounter some restriction and potential worries about possible outcomes. They may experience transformations to their plans and setbacks or time restrictions due to these other energies entering into the picture. Their focus will almost certainly be too lofty while at the same time too restrictive. Finding a happy medium is what will be required.

 

Saturn and Pluto together pack a mighty punch and this combination will be intensified in January and February of 2020. Jupiter sits on the edge of influence of both these giants in our solar system in early March and then weans off from the influence of Saturn but stays strong with Pluto from March to November/December of 2020. The influence of Pluto will be one of transformation to goals and aspirations and potentially their path in life. At the same time, this will be influencing Capricorn individuals’ inner self and the changes they will want to address as time goes by. This is a powerful energy and will have profound influences well into the 2020 year ahead.

NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE DECEMBER 26 2019

This Solar Eclipse begins on December 25 at 9:29 p.m EST or Dec 26 at 02:29 a.m. UCT and is finished at 3: 05 a.m. EST or 08:05 a.m. UCT on December 26. According to TimeAndDate.com “The annular phase of this solar eclipse is visible from Saudi Arabia, Oman, southern India, and parts of Indonesia, weather permitting. In most of Asia, parts of North/East Africa, and North/West Australia, people can see a partial eclipse.” We in Ontario will not be able to see this eclipse.

 

The new Moon is on December 26, 2019 at 12:15 a.m. EST.

 

The New Moon/Solar Eclipse is at 4 degrees in the sign of Capricorn. It is well aspected by Jupiter which is conjunct this degree and Uranus which is trine this degree. As a result, this sounds quite favourable.

 

This is a cardinal position and those with their Sun in Capricorn in the early degrees as well as those with their Sun in Cancer in the early degrees will have this placement in conjunction and in opposition respectively in their charts. Those with their Sun in the early degrees of Aries and Libra will have this position square to the eclipse degree. We could go deeper and discuss each sign but for this post we will focus on the Cardinal degrees.

 

The energies of a New Moons and Solar Eclipses offer up opportunities to make changes in your life. You can rid yourself of anything that no longer suits your path and formulate a new focus, if so desired, to advance your cause or goals.

 

Some will experience turmoil and harder lessons at this time which over time have the potential to foster growth and expansion. Although havoc is often accompanied with the energies of a Solar Eclipse, they do create positive change. Those individuals with their Sun square to this position, although somewhat challenging, you will want to push your way through the adversity and use this as an opportunity to apply useful and practical solutions to any problems that may need dealing with. It might be time for a fresh start.

 

Although these energies might be a little challenging especially if you also have a hard aspect with the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction taking hold in January/February, 2020, you can use these energies to go after what is important to you. Capricorn always implies hard work and dedication but with the conjunction to Jupiter, good fortune and opportunities can certainly be part of the picture for the upcoming period in your life. Your focus should be on long term goals, and you shouldn’t expect things to happen quickly although they just might with the unpredictability of transiting Uranus making a trine to this position.

 

Uranus fosters needed change and opens doors to new perceptions and sometimes enlightenment due to the change of direction that it promotes. It can happen in unusual ways or at unexpected times. You might not think you are ready for what it proposes, but often the change it represents is long overdue. It may take some time to settle into the changes that have potential to unfold but as you move ahead on your path you will see how fortunate this period actually was.

 

Enjoy this gift and make the most out of the opportunities at hand. Life will reward you for your perseverance and calculated advancement.

SUN IN CAPRICORN ON DECEMBER 23 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 20, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)

On December 21 2019, the Sun moves into the sign of Capricorn. Those with this placement of their Sun will experience a lot of conjunctions depending on the degree of their Sun sign for parts of this upcoming year.

 

Mercury moves into Capricorn on December 30, 2019 through until January 16, 2020.

 

Mars goes into Capricorn on February 17, 2020.

 

Jupiter went into Capricorn on December 3, 2019 and will remain there until December, 2020 and as a result will touch all Sun in Capricorn individuals at some point over the next 12 months.

 

Saturn remains in Capricorn until March, 2020 and Pluto will also remain in Capricorn for several years to come.

 

As you can see those with their Sun in Capricorn will have many planets making conjunctions to their Sun over the next year. Check an ephemeris to see where these planets are by degree and when they will make the conjunctions in your chart. The house where the Sun is located natally in a Capricornian’s chart will be the area of life which will have the most direct influence.

 

Houses are areas of life and the Sun has to do with our goals and life’s path as well as our inner self. Conjunctions merge the energies of the Sun and the planets involved and their energies focus as one. You will also need to have a look at how the Sun is aspected in your natal chart, as the aspects it receives from other planets in the natal chart will also be factored into the equation when deciphering the meanings of these current day (transiting) conjunctions.

 

Those with their Sun in Capricorn have an inner need to advance and are usually willing to go to great lengths to see their goals through to fruition. They are achievers, often with strong will power and determination. This is what assists them up that ladder of success.

 

Those individuals that are unwilling to do the foundation work will not achieve as much as they could. Capricorn individuals cannot skip any steps in any process, and in many cases, they are always looking ahead to the next step towards that ultimate goal. Perseverance is strong and they need a clear path forward in order to achieve their goals. They won’t speculate; instead they follow their prime directive.

 

Most Capricorns are reliable and steady. They are often leaders and not always good at following although if their superiors are forthright and educated in their field, a Capricorn individual will not mind following the expert. The Capricorn individual actually admires these individuals.

 

Follow-through is also evident in most Capricorn individuals.

 

Many Capricorns have a difficult time expressing their emotions. This is not to say that they are cold or emotionless. This is not usually the case. These individuals just have a difficult time releasing their emotions. Much of course will depend on the house placement of the Sun and the house and sign position of the Moon.

 

In many cases Capricorns are strong and independent individuals. When raising a family, they can be quite strict. They may demand respect and in turn, respect others. They will do their part in financial terms and also with obligations and duties. Many are somewhat subdued and those individuals that are extroverted can easily take over the conversation while Capricorn sits back and listens. Although while listening, they are likely forming their own opinions which are usually based on fact and then they might express themselves and others will listen. When they talk, which is not all together that often, people will listen. What they have to say might be important.

 

Those with their Sun in and around the 22/23 degree mark will be experiencing the conjunction of Pluto and Saturn on their Sun and will likely go through periods of transformation along with challenging conditions to overcome especially when it comes to goals in life. Much will depend on what area of life is involved. This aspect is at its height from December 2019 into February 2020. Power struggles may be evident and delays and setbacks are possible. By late February, Saturn will have moved out of orb so the intensity will back off somewhat, although Pluto will still be in effect for some time to come.

 

Endings and new beginnings will likely be highlighted.

TRANSITING URANUS IN ASPECT TO MERCURY

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 16, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Mercury is the planet of the mind and of communication. There are times when it indicates travel although there would have to be other aspects that point to travel in the chart for this to happen. It also deals with everyday life and our mental reaction to these events and people. As mentioned, Mercury is about communication and this could go as far as telephone conversations and communication through electronic devices such as computers especially when linked to Uranus, as Uranus is often connected to electronics and modern technology.

 

Mercury on its own does very little and unless it is in aspect with others planets, it is considered neutral. Mercury takes on the energies of any planet it aspects or is aspected by. When it is aspected by Uranus, communication and mental processing becomes unique, different and far-sighted. Uranus is very impulsive in its action and when joined with Mercury, this could result in intellectual conversation and actions that would be decided on in the moment. You could say that Uranus and Mercury could be considered impulsive in their actions and with their thinking energies.

 

Uranus is all about pushing us out of passive thinking and activities. Its energies assist us in seeking freedom on some level. When these planets are linked by aspect, thinking is stimulated and erratic ideas may flood the mind. Ideas that you have never entertained before suddenly seem quite appropriate and you are likely to act on them too. Communication has more depth and meaning. New insights will be entertained and you would probably share these ideas with others. Many individuals would consider these ideas erratic and unconventional but certainly engaging and thought provoking to say the least.

 

You may find that the occult (supernatural, mystical, psychic) may interest you, particularly Astrology because Uranus rules Astrology.

 

Anything scientific also carries more weight than normal especially if you are already inclined to think in these terms. Abstract thinking and the study of subjects that are linked to occult teachings would not only interest you but you would be advised to undertake their study. You may find them mentally stimulating and they may awaken latent abilities linked to the supernatural that lie dormant.

 

Taking advantage of anything new is highly suggested but you should also understand that this whole process may be short lived. Sometimes the energies of Uranus bring things into our lives that are very stimulating and exciting but they can also vanish just as quickly as they came.

 

Try to keep your mind as focused as possible as Uranus will tend to scatter your thoughts. Watch also for making impulsive decisions. Always think things through before jumping in with both feet.

 

As mentioned earlier, Mercury sometimes indicates travel and with the influence of Uranus there is the small potential for accidents or mishaps along the way due to being impulsive. You can anticipate the unexpected when you are making plans for excursions and new adventures, as quite often things do not turn out as you first expect.

 

Whatever takes place, it will be an enlightening experience. You will complete this experience wiser than you were prior to this transit. Expect the unexpected and move forward as you will only live fully by doing.

TRANSITING JUPITER CONJUNCT THE MOON

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 13, 2019 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

This conjunction between transiting Jupiter and the Moon when in force marks a time of positive energy on an emotional level. Jupiter expands on things and adds positive reinforcement when it comes to our nurturing and compassionate side. We truly want to help others, especially those that might be struggling and feel that no one cares. We can give much of ourselves to others without diminishing our self, or without feeling empty. In contrast, we may find that giving without measure, in return, provides us with the emotional support that we might feel we need. This could come in the form of help from others through religious pursuits or spiritual endeavours. We will find that the assistance we seek is easily found.

 

The Moon has to do with our domestic situation, which includes the home environment and also our group of friends and our actual family. We may feel very generous under this aspect and provide others with what they need. We may find that we are especially drawn to those close to us, and we will invite them into our homes and share ourselves with them more than we might at other times. We want to make them feel at home and at ease in our homes. We will go to great lengths to make them feel comfortable and welcomed.

 

Jupiter brings with it good luck and often fortunate times. We are quite willing to share whatever comes our way. There may be those that take advantage of our generosity under this influence so we may have to watch for becoming too extreme in our giving. However, most people will see this side of us for what it is and want to give back because of what we have put out (but we give without this in mind). Feelings are enhanced and a general feeling of opportunity coming our way is part of our everyday experiences. Often because of this attitude and belief structure, things actually do go quite well.

 

The only possible challenging condition that might befall us under this aspect (and this is not often the case) is feeling so good that we become too extravagant and spend more than we should, eat more than we should and do not look after ourselves the way we should. Jupiter wants to expand on everything and sometimes everything will include these extremes as well.

 

This is a very positive aspect and can help us get in touch with our inner most self. In doing so, this will help us with understanding our inner workings, our own emotional makeup and that which has brought us to where we are in our life’s path.

 

This aspect can open the door to wider perceptions and intuitive understanding often based on emotional interaction with others. Even if others do not express themselves verbally, we may pick up on the subtle workings of the subconscious under this influence.

 

The psychic self can open up new dialogue that was not noticed before or can now become enhanced and further developed.

 

This can be a very beneficial aspect.

FULL MOON DECEMBER 12 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on December 11, 2019 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

We will experience a Full Moon on December 12, 2019 in the sign of Gemini at 12:14 EST.

 

With a full moon in Gemini, the sun will be in the sign of Sagittarius. All Full Moons are always in opposition to the Sun. A New Moon is always conjunct the Sun (at the same degree, in the same sign).

 

A Full Moon is the harvest time in the garden of life. We will see the results of whatever we planted some six months ago earlier when the New Moon was in the same sign that the Full Moon is in now. New Moons speak of beginnings and on the Full Moon, it is hopefully the time to reap the rewards of our hard work. If we did not put in the work required, now is the time to pick up the pieces and try again or if there is nothing there that is salvageable, we can plow under the neglected crop.

 

With the Full Moon in the sign of Gemini, it is quite likely that some six months earlier there were at least a couple of things we set goals for. Lack of patience to see these goals through might have been an issue for Gemini but all things need nurturing and patience if we want to create the best we can. There can be no half measures, and we hopefully stuck with our goals to see them through to fruition. Because of the Gemini influence, our project may have encompassed several different aspects and perhaps the changes that took place along the way had to happen in order for us to get to where we are now.

 

This Full Moon is in Gemini at 19 degrees and in order for this to have a significant role in our personal Astrology chart, we will need to have an adjoining planets or angles tied in closely to this degree. The planet or angle as well as the house position of the planet and also the house position of the Full Moon will define what areas of life are involved.

 

Remember when deciphering this Full Moon, a planet or angle that is conjunct this position will be the strongest and will add intensity to the equation.

 

The opposition (180 degrees) will often indicate the involvement of someone else and quite often they are the initiators of what takes place.

 

The square (90 degrees) will produce tension and because of this tension we are often forced into action to help alleviate any issues.

 

The trines (120 degrees) and sextiles (60 degrees) work favourably and help foster growth and easy flow along with opportunities.

 

Transiting Saturn plays a part in the delineation of this equation as it is in quincunx at 19 degrees in the sign of Capricorn to this Full Moon’s position. Saturn tends to challenge even the best of well laid plans but if this is what we have done, planned well, did not miss any steps and worked hard toward our objectives, Saturn can offer rewards and solidify our goals. However the quincunx often suggests that adjustments are necessary and we should not overlook this in our calculations. So have a close look at this project and we might want to make some minor adjustments or some major ones; much will depend on the work we did prior to this Full Moon.

 

Let’s see how this pans out over the long haul although some Astrologers believe that things move forward quickly regardless of which path we may take.

 

If we do need to pick up the pieces and start again then be it as it may. Do not get caught up on what might look to be a failure. If we look at the experience correctly, it is actually a valuable lesson. You never know how things will turn. Sometimes what looks like a wrong turn or a failure can present us with the best options possible for a wonderful outcome. The outcome may not look like what we intended but it can turn out to be results that are far beyond our wildest dreams.

 

If our goals grew exactly as we nurtured them to, we can enjoy the fruits of our labour.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT NATAL MOON

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


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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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

THE MODALITIES IN SYNASTRY

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


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


 

The modalities are Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable.


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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

PLUTO IN TRANSIT

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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

SOLAR ARC

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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

TRANSITING VENUS THROUGH THE NATAL CHART

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


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

 


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

 


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

 


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

 


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

 


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

 


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

 


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

MINI FORECAST FOR THOSE BORN WITH THEIR SUN IN SAGITTARIUS

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


 

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


 

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


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


 

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


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


 

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


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


 

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


 

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


 

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


 

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

NEW MOON - NOVEMBER 26 2019

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


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


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


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


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


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


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