ARIES are developing courage. Jump first, deal with the consequences in mid air, land on your feet, and keep moving. Aries is about action not vacillation. She is the initiator trailblazing through unfamiliar territory, as though she knows exactly where […]

Comments on Current Planetary Positions -Jan. 15, 2019

Today the Capricorn Sun forms a challenging angle to Pallas, the Goddess of War, shrewd strategies, and habitual patterns. Pallas in Libra prefers to compromise and to promote balance. But Libra doesn't have any less of a desire to "win" than Capricorn. Her strategies are just more graceful, less hard hitting, and probably require less effort. She's more adept at wrapping what she's selling in appealing ways. But she's up against a formidable opponent today - reality and cold, hard facts. The effectiveness of ingrained patterns and current strategies are called into question. Something easy and automatic is tempting but it doesn't work. Do you need a better strategy to get where you want to be? Could you adopt something requiring more effort without losing your graceful, likeable edge? Could you replace an old, lazy habit with something more structured and effective? Could you find a stategic way to make your life "a work of art" despite its current challenges? A new and different kind of action is required. Something both kinder and more effective is needed. It's doable but requires consistent effort.

Sabian Symbol for Today Jan. 15, 2019

"An elderly theologian reads from a beautifully illuminated manuscript. A student stands up in the front row and attacks these ideas as antiquated and irrelevant." Standing up to arbitrary authority; tricking people into seeing fallaciees in their own world view; opening a chink in Plato's cave; limiting one's queries to what can be answered vs. getting sucked into internally consistent but solopsistic mythologies; undermining overlooked but critical pieces of the puzzle; unpacking the meaning of symbols vs condensing the truth of a situation in adages; symbols or parables; becoming an authority on some overlooked corner of human knowledge vs. trying to puzzle out the larger picture.

WELCOME!! My name is Holly RePenn. I am a Professional Astrologer certified by the International Society for Astrological Research, a writer, Master Herbalist, Certified Holistic Nurse, and a Registered Yoga teacher. I hope you visit my site often, gather some information, comment on articles, schedule a personal reading, or sign up for future classes and workshops. If you live near my office in San Juan Capistrano, California we can meet in person. Anywhere in the world skype or phone readings are available.

THE PROFESSIONAL ASTROLOGER The practice of astrology by nature defies definition. I’ve tried to encapsulate, in simplified, mathematical form, what it is that happens during a reading, but much of it, I have to admit, I don’t completely understand. Having become well-versed in various astrological techniques – identifying relevant cycles, interpreting symbolism, prediction, solar arcs, secondary progressions, solar returns, as well as life purpose signatures – in the final analysis there is something more. The mixture of my energy, the energy of the chart, and your own energy, at some point, seems to create a type of magic that transcends the calculations – but the calculations are important. They provide the key that unlocks the door to something greater. To progress along your path, with greater insight and understanding, what is required of you is a degree of relaxation, trust, and openness to the possibility that the reading will provide you with the exact information you need, at the exact right moment in time.
