Astrology is a way of finding our place in the world, and the world's place in us. Through attention to the movements in the sky and their natural cycles, we become more attuned to our own natural rhythms and to the sounds and the songs of Soul. Myths and stories thousands of years old place life's events in wider context, offering wisdom in unexpected ways. The sky-pictures show us Psyche's dream of this lifetime.
In an astrological consultation, we explore the symbols and cycles that were highlighted at the time a person was born. We make use of these symbols to understand the major themes of one's life, as well as to gain perspective on pressing life concerns today.
If you would like to get a sense of my approach to astrology, it is described in some detail in this interview by Rene Tricou at Southwestern College.

I grew up in astrology. Our neighborhood astrologer in West Virginia cast all our charts at birth, and moon signs and ascendants were always part of conversations. Around age 12, I discovered a set of esoteric books closeted away in my grandparents' home, in a place I was not supposed to be. Many of these texts were incomprehensible at that time, but they awakened a knowing and a deep trust in larger patterns and cycles of life. They provided a sense of meaning and perspective on life situations ranging from the deeply troubling to the deeply spiritual to the deeply mundane (usually all three).
There was an outpouring of consciousness-oriented approaches to astrology during the 1960s and the 1970s, and it is to this group of astrologers that I am most indebted. The two figures whose lineage I draw from most directly are Dane Rudhyar and Jeffrey Wolf Green. I also consider Brian Clark and Demetra George key teachers who have more recently impacted my work.
I have given several thousands of astrology readings. In working with charts, I follow the invitation of the moment in terms of where to focus. However, for those who are astrologically fluent, some areas that I track in any chart include:
Currently my research interests include the asteroid Eros, psychological ways of looking at the ancient notion of sect (day/night birth differences), and developing new psychological approaches to the mythology of the constellations.
"Jason Holley has been an invaluable source for me in my quest to better understand and deal with the patterns and lessons of my life. The astrological framework really helps me to give some structure to the experience of life's ups and downs, my responses to them, and the resulting emotional roller coaster. More than anything, I appreciate his gentle understanding of my fears, combined with honest advice about how best to deal with them." -Libby P., Durham, NC
"Jason's knowledge of astrology combined with his intuitive style have provided me with valuable insight and deeply profound understanding of various themes and challenges I face as I walk my path through the world in relationship with myself and others. Before receiving a reading from Jason I had found astrological readings only mildly useful and vaguely accurate. I had no idea how transformative it would be." -Kate L., Santa Fe
"The reading was stunning and one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever had in terms of my spiritual process." -Diane J., New Zealand
Pat Godby, my grandmother and earliest astrology mentor. My family traces psychism and occult practice through five generations.
The work of Dane Rudhyar was my first encounter with consciousness oriented astro- logy. Over 25 years later, he still guides me.
Most recent, Jeff Green's teachings on the evolution of the Soul have had a profound influence on my life and my work.
