Transit progressions

Transit progressions or transits are easy to calculate.

They are commonly used by fortune-tellers to divine the future and if given a wide enough orb can be made to account for every event you experience on your life journey.

They’re the astrological year for a year progressions.

An astrological year is the time it takes for the Sun in your birth chart to travel from its birth chart position once around the zodiac back to its birth chart position.

So a planet’s transit position on any day is its position in the sky.

The motion of a transit planet is much faster than its major progressed and minor progressed correlate.

Subsequent to your birth the transit progressed planets move and a transit progression is an aspect formed by a transit progressed planet and a birth chart or major progressed planet.

They play a crucial role in timing major and minor events.

A major-minor-transit progressed chart looks like this…A major-minor-transit progressed chart is calculated for a selected date.

The birth chart planets are progressed to this date.

It’s a freeze-frame that displays the major progressed planets placed around the birth chart in the degree and minute of the zodiac they occupy; the minor progressed planets placed on the outside of the major progressed planets in the degree and minute of the zodiac they occupy; and the transit progressed planets placed on the outside of the triple wheel in the degree and minute of the zodiac they occupy.

The major-minor-transit chart’s declination grid records each planet’s birth chart declination, major progressed declination, minor progressed declination and transit progressed declination.

On the selected date a transit progressed planet may have moved to form a transit progressed aspect with a birth chart or major progressed planet.

The aspect is called a transit progressed aspect.

Transit progressed aspects

A transit progressed planet has very little power so an independent transit progressed aspect can map an event that is inconsequential and of little importance.

But if a transit progressed planet aspects a birth chart or major progressed planet that’s involved in an independent minor progressed aspect it specifies the day on which the minor event can occur.

And if a transit progressed planet aspects a birth chart or progressed planet that’s involved in a major progressed aspect, which is being stepped up and energized by a minor progressed aspect, it specifies the day on which the major event can occur.

What’s going on?

Your life story involves events that can be classified as major, minor and inconsequential.

A major progressed aspect has a long time-frame during which the major event it maps can occur.

A minor progressed aspect to the birth chart or major progressed planet involved in the aspect narrows this time-frame.

And a transit progressed aspect to the birth chart or major progressed planet specifies the day on which the major event can occur.

An independent minor progressed aspect has a short time-frame during which the minor event it maps can occur.

And a transit progressed aspect to the birth chart or progressed planet involved in the aspect specifies the day on which the minor event can occur.

And a transit progressed aspect to a birth chart or major progressed aspect can specify the day when an inconsequential event can occur.
