NEPTUNE RETROGRADE

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


The outer planets remain in retrograde for longer periods than the inner planets. Those that have Neptune in retrograde in their birth charts will certainly be affected. Those that have Neptune stationary in their birth chart will be even more powerfully affected.


“Powerfully” may not be the appropriate word as Neptune’s energies operate in very subtle ways. Its influences are felt often through intuitive channels and the unconscious mind.


In direct motion, Neptune often suggests cloudiness with our reasoning, potential deception or we may not be facing facts. In its higher representation is suggests idealism. It also could suggest a romantic involvement often associated with an idealistic view of the partner or situation. It is also linked to artistic abilities coming to the surface.


Neptune is linked with fantasy and visions while in direct motion, but its energies turn to reality and dealing with the actual facts when in retrograde. Openheartedness and level-headedness linked to common sense are terms that could also be associated with Neptune’s retrograde cycle energy.


Since Neptune deals primarily with the mystical and spiritual side of our consciousness, during the time when Neptune is retrograde, you may find that you realize more concrete solutions or answers to questions pertaining to these pursuits. This applies particularly to those with Neptune retrograde in their birth charts. Look to see which house Neptune is transiting through during this cycle and also look where Neptune is located in your birth chart.


Neptune’s retrograde cycle is approximately 150 days in length, and it spends about 14 years in each sign. Its return cycle is approximately 165 years, so we never experience its return in our lives. About 40 percent of people have Neptune retrograde in their birth charts. As a result, Neptune’s retrograde energies are quite common.


When Neptune is in its direct cycle, there can be a cloudiness about life, depending on how it is aspected in the birth chart. There may be deception and deceit or often illusion and disarray when it comes to seeing things as they are. When Neptune turns retrograde, it becomes more genuine and more lifelike as Neptune can be illusionary when direct. It is more reliable and life becomes more real although what you see, at times, may not be all that pleasant. There can be a real feeling of let-down after a period of feelings of idealism and wonder but the truth is what we want, regardless of how it may look. Because of Neptune’s influence, when we view the world as it is, a part of us still wants to see it through rose coloured glasses. There is the unrealistic hope under this retrograde influence that what we see might just vanish; but it will not, and we have to face facts.


Life becomes more practical and realistic with the retrograde cycle, and this can also include “visions” that are real. This can also include mystical understanding that is also real and identifiable.


Neptune retrograde is not a bad thing but it is truth in a broad scope.

AWAKEN; YOU ARE THE GIANT WITHIN

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 7, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


Recognizing who we are can certainly be paramount to our awakening.


We have to understand our true identity, which is not of an earthly nature. Our connection with our true self begins with this understanding and any progress can become stagnant is we are caught up strictly in the mundane concerns of earthly living, although much can be utilized from our life’s experience.


We are not our bodies. We are not our achievements. We are not our failures.


We are spirit opening up in varying degrees to true awareness. We are spirit wrapped in human form; temporarily experiencing a human experience. We are the one that dwells within. We do not have to wait until we move into the next level of consciousness or pass over to gain entry to the door to our higher self. That door is accessible now.


Recognize ego’s fear based manipulation and refrain from identifying with it. Many of us can be caught up in this transitional stage and have a hard time seeing beyond ego’s grip. Many individuals actually believe that they are their ego. They recognize its negative influence in their lives and believe that for some reason that they do not deserve anything better. Guilt is a by-product of ego and as long as ego maintains its stranglehold, guilt accompanies us in our journey.


For many of us, how we live our lives is often based on guilt and fear.


When we look down on ourselves and our qualities, we are lacking in self love. Too many people believe that ego is their only identity, and more often than not, ego has a negative influence not a positive one.


We CAN love ourselves enough to rediscover the wonderful energy that resides within. We can awaken to our true potential through self love. From there, we can then radiate that love outward into the global consciousness.


We are all one consciousness which is aligned with source. There are no exceptions. We are one and we move as a whole.


Working on ourselves moves our global consciousness in an enlightened direction. Accepting ourselves for who we are allows us to see the beauty within but also allows us to see the beauty that surrounds us.


Recognize the chatter of ego and experience life as we were always meant to experience it. We can awaken to our own perfection and in turn experience the perfection of creation.

URANUS RETROGRADE

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 6, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


Uranus’ energies are very revolutionary. They seek freedom of expression and have a strong desire to remove us from anything that has gone stale or no longer serves a viable purpose. Uranus’ energies act in unexpected manners, and you can never be totally sure how they will respond under pressure.


Under most conditions, the area of life being affect by Uranus will be the house it is transiting through especially when in retrograde motion. There is often a feeling that something has to change or be shaken up somewhat before its expression is activated. Quite often, you get warnings of necessary changes in the area of life under its influence when in retrograde and then when it turns direct either you make the necessary changes or life makes things happen for you. If you choose to do nothing, life will often take a leading role and see that the changes take place. More often than not when changes are forced upon us, they may not be overly pleasant in their expression. Things can happen at the spur of the moment, suddenly, unexpectedly, without warning.


Uranus motto could be “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, you can prepare for when the energies are released so that you can move forward in the new direction of choice. The best time to move forward in your objectives is when the planet goes direct.


Uranus suggests that this is a time for inner reflection not only about your life but on a more personal level – the level of “who you are”. It often provides you with more freedom of expression and you just want to be you, or the new you. This is particularly so if Uranus is retrograde in your 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 this is what it will try to achieve in the area of life dictated by the house it is transiting through in your chart. You should also have a look at the natal placement of Uranus by house and also by aspect as this will give you 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 course with little or no direction or input from you.


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


When 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 and to make necessary changes. Again these can be in disruptive ways but just for the moment. 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 you cannot be prepared for.


Remind yourself, as these changes are taken place, that these are happening for a better future.


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 you where you need to go, so be open and listen. You will know which avenue to take, if life does not dictate, that is. You have freedom of choice on your response however.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS?

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


Specific monetary and material goals can become a fixation for some people. They strive to achieve monetarily and often can become obsessive and relentless in this pursuit. Material abundance or financial success becomes their sole objective and some individuals will stop short of nothing to achieve what they set out to do.


Financial security is not wrong or evil as some would want us to believe. We currently live a material existence, and comfort and enjoyment are all part of this experience. Unfortunately, for many individuals financial rewards and positions of power only serve to pad their feelings of superiority and accomplishment.


For many there is an excitement of accomplishing these material goals but an unhealthy relationship with money can lead us to believe that more money provides more happiness, but far too often the financial rewards of “happiness” are short lived as are the feelings of security for some. Nothing seems to satisfy the hunger for more and they are never satisfied for long. This is when the drive for security becomes an obsession.


We can have a healthy relationship with money but for those who become obsessed, material success often comes with a very steep price, (including unsuccessful family relationships and the ability to truly live for anything other than increasing the bottom line).


For those that have climbed the corporate latter, and when the time comes to retire, do they lose their identity and purpose once they are no longer connected to their job? Are their efforts soon forgotten by the corporation? Does it matter?


During the ascent of the corporate ladder, many have mentioned a period of when nothing seems to satisfy them and an empty void was experienced that nothing in their lives seemed to fulfill. This can be a lonely and empty place where gratification and happiness just cannot be found because they were attached to an unrealistic source. Perhaps this is when we begin to realize that material gain just isn’t enough. It is then that many can begin to look beyond this one focus.


We begin to realize that happiness cannot be purchased. We realize that happiness is an attitude. We begin to realize that we can work towards security but we cannot make this effort the sole purpose of living.


We certainly live in a material world and have come into this life to learn from each of the lessons we experience here. Find security in whatever form it is representative to you.


Be sure that your goals include the ability to feed your hunger to experience, to grow, to love, to be truly happy without attachment. I believe balance is the well known solution which is often neglected.

SATURN IN RETROGRADE MOTION

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on November 4, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


Saturn has a 28 year cycle and remains in each zodiac sign for approximately 2 and ½ years. During its cycle, Saturn moves into retrograde on a regular basis and about 15 degrees of each astrological sign experiences the retrograde motion of Saturn.


To show the contrast of the energies of a retrograde planet, we will look at Jupiter. Jupiter often brings good luck and expansion in its direct motion but when in retrograde motion as discussed in our last Astrology post, its energies are similar to Saturn while it is in direct motion.


Saturn’s energies in direct motion are restrictive. Its energies are challenging and can make life difficult. Saturn is known as the teacher and disciplinarian of the Zodiac.


On the other hand, Saturn’s retrograde energies work similar to Jupiter’s energies when in direct motion. As a result, the extreme energies apparent with Saturn in its direct motion become somewhat softened. Saturn direct normally deals with past issues but while in retrograde, it can and will open doors to new things that somehow we may feel familiar with, even though they are new to us.


Some Astrologers link Saturn with diseases that have longevity and the duration of their affects are sometimes lengthened due to the influence of Saturn. When Saturn is retrograde in motion, any recovery process with these ailments may become sped up and often the individuals that are involved feel more carefree and worry-less about these conditions in their lives. This is beneficial as any focus or concentration can enhance illness and draw even more energy into these areas. In many cases, disease can stem from adverse reactions to life’s events and it is wise not to allow obstructions or hard lessons to become personal or to own them. This free flow attitude can provide us with ease of moving beyond these experiences.


Saturn is often linked to business in some way including searching out a new career, entering into a study programme or beginning a new business. During the course of transiting Saturn turning retrograde, it is wise not to enter into any news enterprises or business dealings. It is best to wait for Saturn to turn direct before moving forward in business related activities, even if you may feel somewhat positive about the outcome. Utilize this retrograde time to review your plans and make sure you are ready to move ahead. When Saturn turns direct (even though things might stagnate for a little while or be slowed down) another planet in transit will come along to start the process of moving forward.


Check to see which house Saturn is transiting through in your birth chart as this will provide you with some specifics. Also check to see which house natal (birth) Saturn occupies. These houses will both be areas of life affected by the retrograde motion of Saturn.


When Saturn is direct in its motion, these areas will be avenues you can move ahead in although it is wise to take things slowly as you move forward. Saturn insists on structure and a solid foundation.


If Saturn is poorly aspected in your birth chart, the house where it is situated in may require additional hard work and a conscious effort to resolve any issues related to that area of life. Since Saturn often points towards a dominant individual in your life (sometimes the most restrictive and strict parent or an authority figure in our life), Saturn retrograde in the birth (natal) chart has been associated with that particular individual somehow missing in your life. The most authoritarian parent could be away often perhaps on business or actually missing from your life in early childhood.


Wherever Saturn is found in a chart, whether it is in retrograde motion or direct motion, this is often an area of life that requires more work and challenging conditions to overcome. However, it should be pointed out that Saturn is the educator as well as the disciplinarian in the chart, so it also rewards hard work and diligent efforts.

MARS IN RETROGRADE MOTION

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


Mars traditionally is reflective of energy directed outward. During its retrograde cycle however, those affected by this transit may feel stagnated in their efforts and feel as though they had little to no energy. This is particularly true if you have a natal planet in conjunction (the most powerful aspect), square or in opposition to transiting Mars. These aspects are known as maleficent energies when associated with Mars, the planet of aggressive force and drive, although the conjunction can be released in many other ways. Much will depend on the sign and house position as well as aspect to this conjunction in the natal chart.


When Mars is in its retrograde motion, the energy is turned inward, which is not a comfortable expression of Mars’ energy. You may feel that you could neither release your inner drive nor could you motivate yourself into a forward direction. You may feel a release of that energy once Mars turns direct again and what previously felt restricted or held back may now come to the forefront and be released. Make sure that the release of these energies is not in an aggressive manner, even if you have felt thwarted in the past few months. Mars can be quite forceful in its expression.


If, for example, transiting Mars in retrograde was conjunction with the Moon in your chart. You could have felt as though your emotions were on hold or even though you had strong inner emotional reactions to life’s events and situations, you were not able to release those emotions. This could have included the want to make changes in your life. Your emotions were so stifled that they kept you at bay and nothing seemed to have moved in the manner you wanted. All you really wanted to do was to express how you felt on an emotion level. After Mars turned direct, you would have been able to express yourself which is what you wanted for what may have seemed an eternity.


A further example, if Saturn had been involved in the equation with this retrograde Mars, this cycle would actually have been to your advantage as you undoubted had needed that time to examine all the details before you plunged into some activity.


Most planets in retrograde suggest a time of review before moving ahead once the planet go direct again, transiting Saturn in retrograde however often works in the opposite. Be sure to watch for our post on “Saturn in Retrograde Motion” coming soon.


Mars retrograde is a time to examine and review all details to make sure that you were prepared and on a solid foundation before you moved ahead. Saturn normally restricts action and suggests that you build a proper base before you move ahead and your drive would have been held back which gave you the perfect opportunity to prepare. Once Mars goes direct again, you may be ready to move ahead in your endeavours.


Mars is also about sexual energies and sexual drive, and you may have felt as though you were stifled in this area. Perhaps you wanted to pursue a sexual union with someone you were interested in and the events never seemed to play out to allow this union to come together. You may find that once Mars goes direct that things move along in ways that were previously stagnated or held back. Just make sure that your feelings go beyond just a sexual nature. Mars tends to be overly aggressive when it comes to sex and the sexual drive, especially when it moves through Scorpio.


Check to see which house transiting Mars is moving through as this will indicate the areas of life involved in the process. Also you will need to review which houses are involved with other planetary energies and how they may surface or fail to surface during the retrograde cycle and again when Mars goes direct. The placement of natal Mars by house position will also be highlighted. Transiting Mars may pass over planets or significant areas of the natal chart (ascendant and midheaven) three times as it goes through the retrograde and direct cycles making these areas of extreme importance in your life at that time.


If Mars stations on a planet or significant point in the birth chart, it will also be noteworthy.

HALLOWE'EN, WINTER'S NIGHT, SAMHAIN

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 31, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)


October 31, in the northern hemisphere, marks the end of the harvest season, summer’s end, a holy day for witches, the wiccan/pagan new year, all hallows eve, the day of the dead, the beginning of Samhain, etc.


The day light hours are becoming much shorter and the sun is much lower in the sky. There is much less dancing in the sunlight and you can feel the mood change around us.


The long dark nights ahead of you, however, gives you a wonderful opportunity to reflect and go deep within.


Who are you?


What weight from your past have you been carrying on your back? What can you release and let go of?


What new journeys would you be fond to embark upon?


What opportunities have you squandered? What opportunities have you taken advantage of?


What is your heart telling you? Do you listen to your heart?


What ideas and goals give you goose bumps?


The seasons offer you many opportunities. Mirror nature. Now in nature is time to release. Let go of those things that no longer serve you.


Do you feel the change in the energies around you? Utilize this change of energy and use it to your advantage. It is a wonderful time to revisit your inner self—to reflect on where you have come and examine what feels right moving forward.

JUPITER RETROGRADE/DIRECT MOTIONS

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


When Jupiter goes into its retrograde, this cycle lasts about 120 days and will move between 10 to 20 degrees. Jupiter goes retrograde every year and as retrogrades usually indicate that the energy is not strong or its full expression is restricted, Jupiter in retrograde still offers up opportunities for expansion and optimism, although somewhat challenged when it is in touch with Saturn.


You can use an orb of 3-4 degrees when determining if Jupiter will affect any of the planets or important points in your natal chart. As it crosses these placements, the energy of Jupiter will increase. As I write this post, Jupiter has been direct since August, 2019 and its positive expansiveness is considered to be alive and well.


Under normal conditions Jupiter is known as the great benefactor, but it is said that when it moves into retrograde, the energies of these characteristics seem to fade and its normal opportunistic influence is felt on an inner level. On the material side of things, however, it is less effective but still present. It is suggested that if you are considering buying property or big luxury items while Jupiter is in retrograde motion that you reconsider and wait until Jupiter is once again in direct motion. Much depends on the natal aspects to your Jupiter. In general, Jupiter’s energies are not as lucky in retrograde motion as they are under direct motion.


When this planet moves into retrograde, its impact is felt on an inner level rather than in our outside world. During a retrograde cycle, you can benefit greatly if you focus on inner growth and awareness. Getting in touch with you and objectively view yourself making alterations along the way as this would be very beneficial.


Jupiter is the planet of expansion and is connected to spirituality and the philosophies of life that have deeper meaning. If you have a look at the house it is transiting through as well as the house it is located in your natal chart, these will be areas of life that you can do work on and transform in ways that will suit you better (when Jupiter is direct again). It is a time of introspection when Jupiter is retrograde.


Remember to view Jupiter even when retrograde on a positive note, even if what you see or if your life’s direction is not what you thought it was. Under the retrograde influence you can make adjustments to the way you have been living your life, transform your life’s direction and put yourself on track with where you should be going.


Jupiter in retrograde is connected to the lessons in life that are required during that specific time. Be honest with yourself under this influence, and you will be able to re-examine your truths and gauge these with a keen eye in order to decide what you want to change and what is worthy of keeping. These are often aspects of yourself that need some tweaking, in turn creating a higher version of yourself on track and ready to move in your intended direction. Look inside yourself and find those inner riches.


While under the influence of Jupiter in retrograde, if you are making plans on going into a business venture, make sure that you take the time to consider all the aspects connected to making this decision. You may find that you will make great expenditures when Jupiter is retrograde. This is not always a wise decision and likely not one you would make if Jupiter were in direct motion. It is actually best to wait before making any decisions, unless your natal Jupiter and the planets connected to it in the natal chart are quite “well” aspected.


Check to see what the natal chart is saying and then make your decisions. Just make sure that you are viewing these contacts with clarity and watch for expanded optimism.


As a side note, the next Jupiter retrograde will be May 15, 2020.


Once Jupiter has gone back into direct motion (again this year was August 11, 2019 and in 2020 it will be September 13) and is making aspects to other planets in your natal chart, you will be able to gage what areas of life might be affected and the potential outcome of actions taken once Jupiter is direct.


Jupiter is a very positive influence in your life and will enhance most experiences, especially when linked to higher forms of delivery.

A TURNING POINT

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 29, 2019 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (0)


Have we reached our “tipping” point?


A perfect example is our political arena seem to be heading for collapse. If so, how will this affect us?


Does this indicate that the duties, motives and policies of some politicians are misrepresented and therefore none effective?


In the free world, politicians are supposed to reflect and act upon the choices and sentiment of their people. If our politicians are not doing this then either they are not fulfilling their duties or our definition of leadership is incorrect.


It feels at times that we are in the midst of a storm and it appears that many are being swept into the turmoil of its force.


After any storm, however, is there not a clearing and the sun returns?


There are those of us that recognize what is currently taking place is a simple storm and nothing more. It does not have to be catastrophic or debilitating, but once it clears, it should enhance a welcomed change.


There are many that are awakening to a clearer vision of what our world is moving towards. It does not have to be devastation or disillusion. It is a foreseeable turning point where we can learn to work together. There can be a unique interchange which has not been experienced up until this point.


We are on this road together. Many are awakening to their true self and their authentic light is shining bright.


We cannot help but see it if we are looking for this energy. We feel it within the core of our being and we understand that it is unfolding at an increasing rate.


In the face of adversity, stand tall. Know that you are meant to be here and experience today’s events. Have faith in the process. Believe in yourself and stay open. Allow love and compassion, and you will bring love and compassion to our world.


You do not have to own the sentiment or energies of those around you. Their energies and focus are not yours.

NEW MOON - OCTOBER 27, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 25, 2019 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)


On October 27, 2019, we will be experiencing a New Moon in the sign of Scorpio.


For those just beginning Astrology or the study of Lunar energies, the New Moon is when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction with each other at the exact same degree and minute in the same sign. Under the energies of the New Moon we should be planting seeds in the garden of life. This is the time to begin a project or start something new. This can be a relationship, a new job, a partnership, buying a house or starting to build a home. The list goes on and on.


The New Moon on October 27, 2019 @ 11:40 p.m. EDT is found at 4 degrees in the sign of Scorpio. As a result, Scorpio traits are inherent in these energies. Any planet or significant point as well as angle particularly on or near the 4th degree of signs in conjunction or opposition or square will impact your life. Trine or sextile will also have an influence.


There are no half-way measures about Scorpio. One thing you can usually count on is that there is likely to be some intensity at this time. This New Moon is found in the first decant of Scorpio which is ruled by Pluto so there will be something extreme and deep about what is undertaken. You may want to dig deep to find what you are looking for. This is a great time for self-examination especially if connected to the Sun and also an intense period when dealing with the emotions although it may not be out in the open especially if connected to the Moon.


Scorpio and Pluto deals with transformations and regeneration and if connected to Venus, love and romance may be part of the equation. Sex can be a strong enticement at this time, especially if connected to Mars.


Jupiter can expand on situations and bring about desired results, while Saturn could restrict things somewhat or slow down the process but may also add structure and stability as it manifests.


Neptune may speak of magical contacts and the occult and spiritual involvement while Mercury can intensify the mind’s interaction.


Transiting Uranus is in opposition to this placement also at four degrees in Taurus. Uranus can make things quite unpredictable and often brings new things into alignment. Uranus creates necessary change, as in some cases, things have become dormant and need shifting. Uranus is the awakener and creates change and disruption in order to put you back on the path that most suits your evolutionary quest and alignment more appropriately.


If you are deciding on what to do with your life, now is a good time to take advantage of these energies and begin.


In about 6 months when we reach the Full Moon in Scorpio, we will begin to reap what was sown under the influence of this Scorpio New Moon.


Dig deep to uncover the answers and seek out the truth of what is beginning now. You may find that you are a different person when this period is over and you are building on what that might be in this moment in time. Make sure these changes are favourable for all involved and that it creates growth in positive ways.


Take advantage of this opportunity.

WHO ARE YOU?

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

We are spiritual beings living an earthly existence; not earthly beings striving to become spiritual. With this understanding, is it really that important to make a name for ourselves, to become important, and to achieve in material ways? Are these relevant at all?


I have been asked “If I am truly a spiritual being, why am I even living under the conditions that I currently do?” “How can an earthly life be significant?”


Do not underestimate the significance of this earthly existence. It is our understanding that there are valuable lessons that can only be learned through earthly matters. A perfect example is “Why is money such an important focus in this life?” It certainly does not look as though money’s reign will be over any time soon, even though the system that is it based on clearly does not work.


Money, in particular, must bring with it valuable lessons for us to learn. It must rank high on the list and the lessons it teaches us must play an important role in our evolving story. We do not have to look very far to find why during this earthy experience money holds relevance in the human mind. On the plus side, money can certainly make life easier due to the system we have put in place, but on the flip side, we, through our lust for money, have created greed, hatred and corruption. Apparently it can (through our actions) live up to its name of being the route to all evil. Again, on the other side of the coin, money can (again through our actions) foster the art of giving and learning lessons of gratitude. We can, therefore, learn much from a life of influence from our very response to wealth.


So who are we? Are we an accumulation of what we have achieved – of what we own? Are we the face we show to the world in material terms?


Are we a blending of our life’s experiences and our acquaintances? We become who we want to become, although it takes a life time to get there, at least for those who innately understand the concept of creating self. If you do not like whom you feel you are, you can change that through self-study and action but most of all through attitude.


Too many people expect others to create that desired change, to make all the moves and to help correct any signature personality traits that we have acquired over time. This only serves to diminish our responsibility of our own actions and the earthly personality that we have created. We shrug off responsibility for our lives and who we have become. In order to grow and move forward, we must accept that it is our responsibility to do what we see fit. Who we are now is a reflection of what we have allowed ourselves to become.


Who are you?


You are much more than this earthy being but during this life, you are what you choose to become and you are constantly creating what lies ahead with your every thought, your every expectation and your every move.


You are here to experience life through a physical existence. Take responsibility for this life. It is in your hands. Live up to your own expectation and listen to your higher self, who is alive and well within.

SUN IN SCORPIO - OCTOBER 23, 2019

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 23, 2019 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)


On October 23, 2019 at approximately 1:20 p.m. EDT, the Sun moves into the fixed, water sign of Scorpio. Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio along with its co-ruler Mars.


The sign Scorpio is affiliated with the scorpion, although this expression of Scorpio is considered unevolved. The eagle is its highest expression.


Scorpio, in many cases, carries with it a bad reputation of being a little to sexually promiscuous, although in general, once they commit themselves to someone, the Scorpion will not sway.


Scorpio individuals have been noted for being reactionary when it comes to being slighted. They do not forget and some will wait for the perfect opportunity to balance the scales. They can be vindictive and it is wise not to get on the wrong side of this sign. These qualities are more linked to the lower vibrational energies attached to the scorpion.


An evolved Scorpio individual is deep and reflective and is not spiteful or malicious. They have learned forgiveness and have also learned to rise above ego intervention. An evolved Scorpion understands that it has to deal with its darker side and rise above anything that stands in the way of evolution and their quest for getting beneath the surface. They have deep and penetrating insight and use these intuitive qualities to assist those in need. Many can see deep into the core of other people although they may not talk about these qualities. They can be trusted with personal information as they can keep things to themselves.


The Scorpio individual’s emotions are somewhat hidden to others as well. There is always something that seems quite secretive about your typical Scorpio and they do like their privacy.


Those with their Sun in Scorpio are diggers for truth and they make great investigators. Nearly all are reliable and conscientious workers. They go the extra mile and never seem to get tired. They can run their bodies down because of their relentless drive.


These individuals make great detectives and researchers and would do well as psychologists and therapists. Many instinctively know where the problem lies but normally would not be judgemental. We are speaking of the eagle of course. They need to be doing something that truly matters and are willing to do a shakeup if absolutely necessary.


Those with their Sun in the sign of Scorpio anywhere between 10 to 29degrees will have transiting Saturn which is finally moving direct and Pluto, both in Capricorn when this post is written in sextile to their Sun. Sextiles are opportunity aspects and often help us move ahead in our endeavors although we have to take advantage of the opportunity as it presents itself.


This is a favourable aspect and Neptune transiting through the sign of Pisces is in trine to those with their Sun in the middle and later degrees of Scorpio as well. In many ways, opportunities are at hand for those affected by these aspects. Trines supply easy flow and good luck in obtaining benefits. Much can be done for those with this position in their charts. Of course as always, you will have to see which houses are involved at this time to see what areas of life will be affected.


Saturn at present is around the 14/15degree mark of Capricorn and will remain in Capricorn into the spring of 2020. It will again go retrograde in May, returning once again into Capricorn in July and remaining there until December all of 2020. Pluto will remain in Capricorn for some time and Neptune will also remain in Pisces for some time yet to come. The energies are in place in a very positive sense for those affected and we should make sure to use these energies to enhance our life both in material ways as well as spiritual ways.


It will be up to the Scorpio individual as to what they do with these energies available to them.

REMOVING THE SHACKLES

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


We can be tightly bound by our beliefs. If, for example, we think of ourselves as a failure in life, or believe that we are not worthy of love and happiness, then we stop ourselves short of success, love and happiness.


If we believe that there is little to no future for us, how can we possibly move beyond these barriers to build the future of our dreams? We have reduced our potential and have held ourselves back because of these attitudes.


Some have argued that “off and on throughout life I have been faced with challenging conditions and it seems as though no matter how hard I try to push ahead nothing seems to ever work.”


We do not know what this journey will hold for us and at times we will experience conditions and events that we did not choose to experience. However any challenging experiences offer rewards. I am sure you have heard this before and you may be tired of hearing such statements. Part of you may believe these to be hogwash. If this is the case, why are there repetitive themes in life? Why to the same issues keep resurfacing?


If we do not learn, the lesson will repeat.


Our attitude can make a valuable lesson easily learned or it can make a valuable lesson feel as though it is a punishment. Pay attention to how you look at life’s events.


Sometimes lessons repeat themselves because we need to make changes in our surroundings and other times we just need to shift our attitude. Believe it or not, the easiest test is to make a shift in attitude and then review where this takes you.


Change may not happen overnight but then again it might. It is important to remember that it has taken us some time to get to where we currently are so it is quite possible it may take some time for the shift to take hold but that is okay. We are not in a hurry.


Have patience and believe in yourself. See ego’s chatter for what is actually is. Ego insists on giving you a hard time and the closer you get to recognizing its false influence, the harder it tries to convince you it is right. Eventually we see ego for what it really is and we do not have to give it control over our lives.


Ego, from its negative perspective, does not realize that we can actually have a wonderful working relationship. With the proper relationship ego can help and we can be stronger because of it. Ego can nurture our creative self.


It is time to release the shackles of negative attitude and underestimating our ability to love life. As with everyone, we are entitled to happiness and we can prosper in our own ways. Life provides whatever we feel we are worthy off. If you feel unworthy, you will be. If you love yourself, life will be filled with love. Recognize that life reflects our believe structure and our expectations.

PLANETS IN RETROGRADE

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

(Mercury and Venus)


In the next few astrology posts, we are going to take a look at each of the planets when they are in retrograde motion. As I write this post, Mercury will be going into retrograde on November 1, 2019; however Venus will not go retrograde until May 14, 2020 in the Toronto, Ontario area.


All the planets except the Sun and Moon go into retrograde motion. Retrograde suggests that the energies of the planets are not in full expression or allowed freedom of expression. The energies are stifled in some way. In some cases, we can wait for the energies (Planets) to go direct before taking action. In the case of the outer planets however, the retrograde cycle is so long that it would serve little purpose to wait for the energies to go direct.


Saturn is the only exception to the rule. When Saturn is in retrograde motion, its positive energies are released. So stability and structure are enhanced and lessons, delays and obstructions are not as readily in place.


Mercury Retrograde


Mercury has to do with our thought process and thinking ability. It has a great deal to do with our communication techniques and our ability to create ideas and formulate action through the thought process.


Mercury goes retrograde three or four times a year, with interludes every four months (approximate). Its retrograde cycle is approximately three weeks in length. During its retrograde cycle, it appears to move backwards in the heavens between 10 to 15 degrees. This is a period when we would be wise to sit back and review what has taken place recently before pushing ahead with our goals. This is a time of analytical analyses before we move ahead. Careful study is advised and then when Mercury goes direct, we can move ahead with our endeavors.


If by chance we have no choice but to proceed with a project under the influence of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, we can usually expect some delays or obstructions along the way.


Venus Retrograde


There is a little less than one and one-half years between Venus’ retrograde cycles. Each cycle lasts about forty days.


Venus’s energies are about love and affection and it is also affiliated with beautiful things and our possessions. Venus seeks out comfort and elegance although we always need to look at its sign and house position in the natal chart for complete details. Venus’ energies are connected to our search for peace and tranquility hence its affiliation with Libra and Taurus.


When Venus is in its retrograde cycle, it has similarities to the energies of Mars. Naturally, Venus is very passive in its expression while Mars is much more aggressive and pushy. Since Venus is connected to material objectives and love and affection, the push for these things is emphasized although the ability to express love and affection is restricted during the retrograde cycle.


Remember retrograde implies that the energies are held back. Personal relationships may not be as easy due to the restrictions on our expression of love and affection


While in retrograde, there is a push however to accumulate possessions, and this could include a push towards gaining momentum linked to the finances and acquiring material goods. It has also been said that during the Venus retrograde cycle there can be a tendency to lose something of value, whether that be a personal thing or some love interest.


There are, however, no significant indicators that the connection lost cannot be regained. Things may not be lost on a permanent basis but can be regained what was lost once the retrograde cycle is over. Again, it is important to look at the full chart for a clear picture.


October 30, 2019, we will look at Jupiter in retrograde.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCT NATAL SATURN

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 18, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


The transit of Uranus to Saturn can push us to review some of the structures that have been built up over the span of our lifetime. This aspect will push us re-evaluate conditions and so we can decide what should be left as is (with maybe minor changes), and what needs to be replaced or removed completely. This can be very tough because, as creatures of habit, we like safe and comfortable conditions in life.


Uranus’ energies arrive to change things and pushes us in new directions which eventually will provide greater freedom and more room to simply be ourselves.


The release of these energies can be quite disruptive and often unexpected, particularly if we fight them. In many cases, we will not be prepared for these events and the stress and tension may be difficult to handle. The stress and any tension that seems to stay with us is as a result of our resistance and our not allowing the needed changes to happen. Fighting what needs to change is futile and the less we attempt to challenge these conditions (just allow these things to develop as they need to) the more smooth things will go, especially emotionally.


Saturn represents structures in life that have been built up over time. This structure provides us with a sense of comfort and safety. These structures may now be standing in the way of progress and they are no longer serving any viable purpose except that they bring us comfort. We have probably been reviewing these for some time now and a part of us recognizes the need for change and another part is frightened by this idea.


Things that are now considered stale will be re-evaluated and are subject to great change. There may be feelings or issues that relate to freedom and the ability to actually become that person we are evolving into. Something needs to happen in order for us to evolve from caterpillar to butterfly.


The energies of Saturn are restrictive and just might stand in the way.


With Uranus conjunct Saturn, this can be a very volatile time in our lives. This may affect our relationships with others, our marital status, our occupation and many other aspects of our lives. We know that life needs change and now will be the time.


These changes may come about in unusual ways and during times when we least expect them. They may be very sudden in their nature and because of this, we may not have a lot of time to become accustomed to what is taking place.


Let go and do not fight the process. We can and should acknowledge to ourselves that these changes are necessary. Deep down inside we know some action is required. If this is a more gentle transition, we will just have to make mental adjustments and minor changes, but be sure to move forward, as over time we will realize, even if just subconsciously, that the changes at hand are exactly what we need for the future.

MATERIAL FOCUS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 17, 2019 at 8:25 AM Comments comments (0)


It is important to look at each day as a chance for a new beginning or an ability to enhance an already magical experience.


Each day is a new beginning.....a chance for a new start.


It is important to analyse our desires on a regular basis and be honest with ourselves. Only then can we understand what our desires can truly manifest. Letting go of that which offers little in the way of “whole” self growth can provide an important shift in our overall outlook.


We do live in a material world, and it can be hard to release the need to see beyond the day to day routine particularly if this is all we are focused on. As we grow financially secure in the material world, we are often presented with a feeling of never having enough. There remains a void in our lives so we believe “more” can fill this.


Enjoy the feeling of comfort that material living provides, but an over focus on “stuff” can take us off track and leave us feeling unfulfilled.


As we have repeated time and time again, we are spiritual beings living in physical form.


“Are material concerns the reason our true essence came into this life or is there more?”

THE PROGRESSED MOON AND ITS INFLUENCE

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


The progressed Moon moves through the zodiac approximately one degree a month. Its effects are important and usually signify that a change of events is in store, defined by its sign and house position as it moves through the horoscope. You will feel its effect for approximately a three month period, culminating in intensity in the middle month when it goes direct with another planet or angle in your personal chart.


The progressed Moon is often used as a timing factor in Astrology. As major transits from the outer planets make aspects in the natal chart, the progressed Moon often supplies the energies to make things happen. Some of the outer planets’ energies can be in force for several years and when the Progressed Moon moves into direct aspect (if Pluto for example is at 20 degrees any sign, when the Moon moves into 20 degrees any sign) it will intensify the energies of the planets involved and the area of life represented by the houses involved. The major aspects usually play a more significant role than minor aspects do. However, if you have no major aspects at the time then a minor aspect in very close proximity can still play a role in what is happening.


Events will unfold as the Progression Moon makes an aspect. The conjunction is the most powerful aspect and will stimulate activity and the energies will be unleashed. The square often indicates some struggles while the opposition suggests challenging conditions often brought on through someone else’s actions or by life events. Under most conditions the trines and sextiles are favourable aspects and indicate opportunities or easy flow. However the whole chart always has to be studied for a full understanding of what is taking place.


Also have a look at eclipses to see if they are near the angles indicated as they can stimulate activity even if the eclipse is not direct. An eclipse that is out by 3-5 degrees can still have an effect on the overall conditions set in motion by the transits and the progressed Moon.


You will also have to check the sign the progressed Moon is moving through, particularly when it enters into a new sign. The sign and its indicators as well as the planet ruling the sign will define what to expect over a 2 ½ year time frame. Each sign and house placement will carry with it the meanings associated with the house and sign, and these energies will have an impact during the times involved. Pay particular attention to the cardinal signs and angular house cusps as they often activate activities pertaining to the energies associated with these placements.


The signs and the adjacent house positions will indicate what you might expect. The energies are quite strong as the Moon moves into a new house (house cusp position) and you will feel the energies shift as the action takes place. Remember this energy is at its strongest as it first crosses the house cusp. These are always energy areas.

SHARING IN THE HEALING PROCESS

Posted by holmastrology@gmail.com on October 15, 2019 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)


There are many different healing modalities, one of which is Reiki.


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


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


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


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


Over and above any healing modality, it should be noted that it is imperative to realize that our thought process influences our ability to heal or to be healed. It is certainly common for most of us to worry about our loved ones when they are ill or have suffered from an accident. We should remind ourselves though that when worrying, your focus is not a positive one. Sending love is. By focusing on the “what ifs” in a negative way, we are sending out energy of worry and concern which does not promote healing.


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


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


When focused on any illness of your loved ones, we are not suggesting that you are creating the illness or disease, but you are certainly not assisting with the healing either. Not everyone is meant to be healed but certainly Reiki and other healing modalities can make the experience less painful and if the patient is meant to pass, the energies can help in making this transition an easier one.


Positive focus (in all of life matters) is essential for a positive outcome, no matter what that positive outcome may look like. By envisioning someone as healthy and robust, even if at that moment they are not, will help the healing process, if they are meant to heal.


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


See the positive in all that takes place in life because if we look deep enough, even during crisis, we will find it. Release expectations as expectations can create much disappointment and stress.


Treat each other just as we would want to be treated and allow your love to touch each person you meet. This is your best gift to the world and to yourself.
