The transits of the planets are the daily motions of them as they move through the Zodiac around the Sun; thus: Jupiter moves through the twelve houses of Zodiac in a little less than twelve years and will transit the twelve houses of the horoscope and the radix or place of all the other planets. One who has Jupiter well placed and aspected in their horoscope will have a very fortunate period whenever Jupiter transits the 10th house or mid-heaven, the ascendant or 1st house, or the 4th or 7th houses, but if Jupiter be afflicted or either of these places have an evil planet therein, then the transit of Jupiter through either of them does but little good.
Saturn requires thirty years to transit the twelve houses or go entirely around the Sun; if he is strongly placed in the horoscope then there will be a period lasting from ten to fifteen months, every seventh year, during which one has reverses, or hard luck, as they call it; but if Saturn be well aspected and placed, and Jupiter also favorably placed then the transits of Saturn produce no noticeable effects.
Mars transits cause only slight annoyances, delays; you feel worried, anxious, and often act on the impulse; during the period when Mars is making a transit it is better to go slow and be careful about making changes until the transit is passed.
Whenever two or three evil transits come together the outcome is very disagreeable. When a good and evil transit come together you will notice very conflicting conditions; good prospects offer, but do not materialize, or you expect something unpleasant and are happily disappointed. You should be very careful and run no risk at all during the evil transits, but push your affairs with confidence during the good transits.
(1.) Mars on Midheaven – Affects business, causes delays annoyances and frequent trifling losses. Defer commencing important enterprises while in operation.
(2.) Mars on Ascendant – Similar to (1) but less evil for business, and affects health and spirits more; you are impatient and irritable.
(3.) Mars in 4th and 7th Houses – This is similar to (1) but much less evil.
(4.) Mars in Evil Aspect to Radix of Sun or Mooll – Similar to (3) but rarely continues more than a week unless Mars retrogrades within orb.
(5.) Saturn on Midheaven – A long, dull period, during which you are much more likely to lose than gain. Make everything safe before it begins. Avoid changes and commencing new enterprises as much as possible. Continue regular business, but do not branch oui in new directions. Guard against treachery and conspiracy, and be careful how you trust any one. Let your chief aim be to save rather than to gain more. You feel dissatisfied and discouraged and tempted to sell out or resign your situation; do neither unless compelled by circumstances.
(6.) Saturn on Ascentlaut – Similar to (5) yet less evil for business, but worse for health and spirits.
(7.) Saturn in Fourth and Severith Houses – Similar to (6) but, far less evil. In the 4th evil for father if living; in the 7th house, evil for husband or wife if living.
(8.) Saturn in Evil Aspect to Radix or Sun or Moon – Similar to (7) and usually continues about four months, yet much longer if Saturn retrogrades.
(9.) Uranus on Miclheaven – This indication is similar to mixture of the indications of (1) and (5), but denotes events that occur in a sudden and unpleasant manlier which seem far more evil at first than they ultimately prove. If Jupiter is making a good transit at the same time, the event may prove partly favorable, but still sudden and unexpected. Besides, IJranus is not constantly evil in his indications, for sometimes weeks, and even months elapse, during his transit, without any indication, from this odd, strange planet. The best explanation of Uranus is: “Expect the Unexpected.”
(10.) Uranus on the Ascendant – Similar to (9) but less evil for business and worse for health, and sometimes accidents occur.
(11.) Uranus in the Fourth and Seventh Houses – Siniilar to (10) but much less evil. In the fourth bouse the father often suffers, but death does not always result. In the seventh house trouble with the public, death of wife or husband, or separation are threatened and sometimes occur.
(12.) Uranus in Evil Aspect to Radix of Sun or Moon – This is similar to (11),
(13.) Jupiter on Midheaven – The most fortunate of all transits. You feel hopeful, good prospects offer, and you meet with advancement. Now is the time to strike out boldly and push business with confidence. Make changes and commence new undertakings. Remember that whatever is undertaken and established under this transit will prove more permanent than at any other time and successful under evil aspects, when new schemes prove unsuccessful or failures.
(14.) Jupiter on Ascendant – Similar to (13) but less fortunate for business though better for health and spirits.
(15.) Jupiter in the Fourth and Seventh Houses – Similar to (14) but less fortunate. In the 4th house fortunate for father if living; in 7th house fortunate for husband or wife if living.
(16.) Jupiter in Good Aspect to Radix of Sun or Moon or His Own Radix – Similar to (15) and continues about two months, but much longer if Jupiter retrogrades.
