Holly - The Ruler
July 8 - August 4
Among the Celtic tree astrology signs the Holly is one of regal status. Noble, and high-minded, those born during the Holly era easily take on positions of leadership and power. If you are a Holly sign you take on challenges easily, and you overcome obstacles with rare skill and tact. When you encounter setbacks, you simply redouble your efforts and remain ever vigilant to obtain your end goals. Very seldom are you defeated. This is why many people look up to you and follow you as their leader. You are competitive and ambitious even in the most casual settings. You can appear to be arrogant but in actuality you're just very confident in your abilities. Truth be known, you are quite generous, kind and affectionate (once people get to know you). Highly intelligent, you skate through academics where others may struggle. Because many things come to you so easily, you may have a tendency to rest on your laurels. In other words, if not kept active, you may slip into an unhealthy and lazy lifestyle. Holly signs may look to Ash and Elder signs for balance and partnership.

Celtic Holly Meaning: The Celtic meaning of holly deals with ruling the wintery realms with style, dignity and honor even in the midst of great challenge. Just as the oak tree is the king of the green realm and ruler of the lighter half of the year (the solar months when the sun is closer to the earth and sheds more light on the days), the holly is its counterpart. Holly is the ruler of the white realm, king of the darker half of the year (the lunar months when the night pervades, and the annual era in which winter resides). When all other flora have long lost their blush and gone dormant for the winter, the holly can be found still be brightly verdant against the stark white landscape. This serves as a symbolic reminder of many beatitudes:

Symbolic Messages from the Holly

Let your beauty shine within even in times of dormancy

Rule the day, and let your generosity be your legacy

The energy of life is ever-present

The ancient Celts would bring holly into their homes for their bright, cheerful disposition. They were also considered a symbol of good luck.

Just as the oak attracts lightning, holly repels lightning. It was often planted around homes for protection from lightning, and for this reason it is viewed as a symbol for protection.

Interestingly, science has actually discovered the distinct leaf-shape of the holly acts as a natural repellent for lightning energy, making the holly's protective significance more than just lore.

Holly leaves are very prickly, and deemed another metaphor for protection, vigilance, and stubborn victories won. When you are feeling the walls cave in on you, call upon the holly. Invoke its protective qualities and you will soon find you no longer need be on the defensive. The holly will protect and bolster you to victory.

As the ruler of winter, the holly is also associated with dreams and the subconscious. Druids would often invoke the holly energy for assistance in dream work as well as spiritual journeying.

Sunday July 9th: Full Moon in Capricorn at 12:07am (EDT). Moon v/c at 10:12pm. Capricorn moons are great for setting a strong foundation. It offers us structure, discipline, and patience. We are able to practically plan ahead and take control in our lives. Moon in Capricorn honors traditions, takes responsibility, sets boundaries and rules. Focuses on career and investments. This full moon is extremely intense and powerful. There is so much energy happening between the Sun, Moon, Mars and Pluto. Jupiter expands that energy. The way this combination is aligned can create major conflict and change. This doesn’t necessarily mean it is a negative moon but please be advised that it has the potential to be violent and dangerous. Avoid confrontations. You might experience anger, aggression and competitiveness. If you find yourself feeling this way, be mindful of it and distance yourself from everyone until you can cool off. I recommend meditation or a creative output. If you are in an abusive relationship of any kind, remove yourself now! Just be aware and be careful. Because of these oppositions, you might feel like you’re being pulled in all different directions. This will be an extra emotional moon. Your intuition and sex drive will be greatly heightened. This Capricorn moon WILL bring changes. Pluto (ruler of sex, death and transformation) makes sure of that. On the positive side, Pluto transcends and transforms your life. This can be a VERY good thing. It will push you to where you need to be. If you start the work and put in the time (Capricorn) then Pluto will make sure you get where you need to go. Dreams and any subconscious work are important during this full moon. Write down everything that you remember from dreams and visions during meditation.

Sunday July 23rd: Moon v/c at 2:05am. Moon enters Leo at 4:34am. New Moon at 5:46am.(EDT) Leo moons focus on self expression, creativity, the arts, romance, children and ideas. Get in touch with your personal needs and your true intentions. Spend time with children. Bring out your inner child. Leo energy boosts confidence. This new moon packs quite a punch! Mars feeds us tons of energy and forces us into action. This is a time to take risks and go for it! We will need a creative outlet for this energy or it can be explosive. Especially since Mars is butting heads with Uranus. Uranus wants us to rebel against anyone who tells us what we don’t want to hear. You want to do things your way. Mars squaring Uranus can make things unpredictable and create accidents. Impatience and annoyances, are two things that you may experience under this transit.
