We have posted information concerning different time periods that affect most people in general. It is important to understand that the natal chart is a snapshot of the heavens at the moment of birth. These planets and positions are frozen in time at the very second of birth and then are reactivated immediately after your birth. These planetary bodies continue moving never to stop again within your particular birth chart. This continuous motion of the planets after your birth is referred to in Astrology as transits or transiting planets.

As these transiting planets continue their path, mostly clockwise through your natal chart, they make aspects or angles to the position the planets were located in at the second of birth (the natal chart positions).

There are several major aspects as well as several minor aspects that these transits will make to your birth chart. Depending on the type of aspect and planets involved, you will experience challenging or constructive events in your life. Some aspects are event oriented while others are more of a deeper, inner level, where information gathered stimulates mental activity. These aspects affect our thought process and reasoning ability. Some of the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) have profound effects on our overall development and instigate transformations that may at first be subtle but intensify as we become acquainted with what is actually transpiring in our lives.

There are time frames in the planetary cycles that affect us all and we have touched on some of these in recent posts. We would suggest that you have a chart diagram prepared showing the position or location of the planets for your birth time, (this can be done on many Astrological websites that have this availability). You also can have a chart diagram prepared showing the transiting planets and their current locations today. These two print outs together will show the transit angles to your birth planets.

If for example you have your Moon in Scorpio at 11 degrees in your birth chart, the planets currently transiting between 8-14 degrees of any sign would be impacting your Moon. Most transiting planets, particularly outer planets, begin to affect us when they are five degrees of becoming exact (approaching). An exact aspect when referring to the Moon at 11 degrees would be a planet at 11 degrees; this is when the influence is the strongest.

Although we all experience events during certain time frames in our lives, also as these transits move around our chart they make aspects at any given time and will have impacts on our lives when they become activated (or make these specific aspects).

This essentially is how a chart is read or interpreted. Through recognizing the meanings of each aspect and planet, etc. we can forecast probable events by utilizing these aspects as they become active in your chart. We can also ascertain potentials and time frames when these activities will be in force, how intense they will be and what can be gained through the experience.

Astrology is an amazing tool and offers insights into potential upcoming events. Due to the varied nature of different planets, the energies of the planets supply us with information which can assist us to better handle these events.

Astrology has proven over many centuries its accuracy. Our predecessors through experience have outlined how the planets influence us in our lives. Our ancestors have provided the modern Astrologer with proven insights. Thanks to their diligent work and through many years of study, we are now provided with concise mathematical equations and formulas that assist the modern Astrologer and Astrology student when deciphering aspects in the chart.
