There are 3 types of holding patterns on charts.
1. Holding in lieu of procedure turn: depicted as bold line, same as the rest of the descent. It's expected by ATC that pilot will fly it.
2. Arrival pattern holding: depicted as a thinner line than the rest of the approach. You can not use that holding, unless directed by ATC or requested from ATC.
Here is an excerpt from this Jeppesen Chart Legend, pg-Approach 3, item 16:
Holding/Racetrack patterns are shown with both inbound and outbound
bearings. Restrictions are charted when applicable, heavy weight
tracks indicate the holding/racetrack is required.
3. Missed approach holding: depicted with dashed line to be used after executing missed approach.
So, in your case the holding pattern is 2nd one and you are not authorized to use it unless directed by ATC. One thing you can do is to fly slightly south so that you can create enough turning room for yourself in order to pass the VOR on north-east heading and start your descent. Requesting a maneuvering space for that would be a wise move.
