Astrological transits are one of the main means used in horoscopic astrology to forecast future trends and developments (the other means used is astrological progression, which progresses the horoscope forward in time according to set methods). As its name implies, astrological transits involve a method of interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope. This is most often done for the birth or Natal Chart of a particular individual. Particular attention is paid to changes of sign, or house, and to the aspects or angles the transiting planets make with the natal chart ~ Wikipedia
When analyzing the transit of the planets to the houses of the horoscope, it is necessary to take into account:
1. The strength of a planet in a chart (radix) by its cosmic status
2. What aspects does the transiting planet have in the radix
3. What kind of house of the radix she rules and what is the significator
4. In what radix house was the planet located
Before making any predictions on the transit of planets, it is necessary to clearly know its qualities in the natal chart (radix), because these qualities transit planet brings in the situations of the house, on which it passes.
Hypothetical planets in transit bring in the transit house the problems of the house in which they were in the radix.
It is necessary to identify the most significant transit of planets the houses, especially the periods of the passage of the ruler and significator in their own houses.
Ddistinguish strong houses. Houses are divided into three groups: angular, succedent, and cadent houses relate to the three qualities (cardinal, fixed, and mutable).
The transit of the planets in the angular houses is very important- a whole life cycle is laid, as if the autonomous rhythm inside the horoscope is activated (to go to work or to leave, get married or divorce).
If there are many planets are in the angular houses, then during the life, there are many autonomous cycles are switched on, i.e. As if a horoscope inside a horoscope that turns on with transit and works independently (cardinal cross). It is difficult for such a person to make predictions – it is necessary to take into account the phenomena of resonance.
Many planets in succedent houses – transit do not lay cycles but give a stable situation from the beginning to the end of transit (fixed cross).
For most of the planets in the cadent houses, the transit will cause volatile, unstable, unreliable situations (mutable cross). A Grand cross situation started in the cadent house can end up in the affairs of another house.
Which group of houses prevails, we determine by the points of the planets in the houses.
Movement of the transiting planet through a triplicity of the house also gives its information:
People of the first third of life (up to 28 years) react more to the passage of planets at 1/3 of the house, people of the second third of life (28-56 years) react more to the passage of planets at 2/3 of the house, and people older than 56 years – 3/3 houses.
Orb in transit can be expanded for strong planets: for minor ones – up to 2 degrees, for the Sun and Moon – up to 3-4 degrees, for planets transiting in angular house – the orb expands by 1 degree, and for planets in cadent houses, the orb is reduced by 0.5 degrees for minor and by 0.2 degrees for major.
For a grand cross situation and a closed trigon are added: 2 degrees – for angular houses, 1 degree – for succedent and 0.5 degrees – for cadent. Take into account the position of the transit planets in relation to the horoscope axes – with most planets under the horizon (in 1-6 houses), the human initiative will be somewhat constrained, the motives of transit situations will be hidden, invisible.
Take into account the position of the transit planets in relation to the horoscope axes – with most planets under the horizon (in 1-6 houses), the human initiative will be somewhat constrained, the motives of transit situations will be hidden, invisible.
With most of the transit planets above the horizon (7-12 Houses), life events will be more vivid, visible to others, and the person himself is active in solving the problems of these houses – he reveals the contents of these houses along the meridian axis.
Western sector (4-9 houses) does not concern the person himself, but his surroundings and can involve a person in an undesirable event (be vigilant!)
Eastern sector (10-3 houses) concerns the native personally, and with the cross situation, there may be personal difficulties.
Where will be the aspect transit situation realized?
Where the strongest planet located at the moment, i.e. in the problems of the house where there is a strong planet. Minor planets, passing through houses, create only the everyday background of life, attracting short-term attention to the problems of houses.
Transit planet is more significant when crossing the border of the house, because a person must adapt to the problems of another house, in which she passes. Crossing the border of the house is important for the problems of social life, and for karmic deep problems, it is more important to cross the border of the sign.
The problems of the house reach their peak when the transiting planet passes through the middle of the house. At the end of the house, the transiting planet completes the affairs related to the problems of the planets in the house.
