Transits and Prediction in Astrology

Published September 16, 2019

TRANSITING PLANETS – planets in transit: A transiting planet is any planet that crosses over natal or birth chart planets, solar, lunar, embolistic, angular planets. Or when a transit planet finds itself in the same declination relative to a natal or other astrological chart.

When a transiting planet crosses certain points in the moon chart or over certain natal or other astrological planets, it activates certain aspects from the charts if they were announced in the charts and the planet in transit only brings an event at a specific day and time.

Planetary transit or transit of planets is important, but some aspect must be carefully watched and monitored.

Transiting planets are measured by their favorable or unfavorable constellation of the particular planets with which they are aspected, and constellations are characterized by signs of the ecliptic, signs of the zodiac, signs of prominent influence.

When a transiting planet is retrograde and touches certain points in the horoscope, it will always bring difficulties to the person and sometimes major accidents, because retrograde transititing planets are never good; they alert the person to the presence of retrograde transiting planet.

Aspects of transiting planets in "SIGNS" are very important, because aspects cause and activate natal or other astrological planets.

Transiting planet aspects in signs are crucial. Interpreting the transit planet in signs will only bring real meaning from the transit planet.

The most dangerous and difficult aspect is the Saturn conjunct Jupiter, bringing real large-scale disasters. This aspect is most felt in Mundal astrology, this aspect brings: contagion, famine, flood, earthquake, natural disasters, wars. It is correct to interpret a transiting planet through a sign while interpreting a transiting planet in an astrological house has no effect and does not lead to an interpretation of events.

Transiting planets by "HOUSES" are irrelevant and have NO IMPACT. Do not look at astrological houses, because they have no meaning, except in angular houses.

When a transiting planet conjuncts in relation to natal or other astrological charts, it will always bring unrest. The conjunction itself is not good at all, except when it comes to Benefic planets.


NEGATIVE ASPECTS: conjuction (0), semi-square (45), opposition (180), quincunx (150), square (90), are NEGATIVE regardless of aspect with the benefic planets.

GOOD ASPECTS: quntile (72) tremendously powerful, more powerful than the trigon itself, sextile (60), trine (120)

Transiting planets are very important in the horoscope for both human and Mundal astrology because transits of planets determine the course of events.

In addition to transit planets, retrograde transit planets must be addressed because each retrograde planet enhances the effect of its meaning. Transit retrograde of one planet only activates the natal aspects with that planet and it is always a period of tightness or favorableness, it depends on what kind of retrograde planet is aspected in the natal chart. If a retrograde planet is aspected by a square or conjunction or opposition it is certainly then a negative aspect and when the transit planet is in these positions with the natal planets then the period is very negative. When it comes to transits, it is good to know what transit brings in a retrograde move so you can keep yourself safe and avoid a bad period. Any retrograde transit primarily provides a bad thing and if one accepts it then suffers, but if one avoids the bad effects of the transit by knowing how to do it, the same transit however bad it will then give the person a positive experience and the person will not go through a bad period. Does not apply here when it comes to Mars or Saturn because hardly anyone can avoid their influence.

The length of the negative period will depend on the transit planet and its speed. The planets as Kuja, Guru and Shani have the most severe impact because they move very slowly and in retrograde move, their speed is even slower and the slower it works the more damaging it is.

The most difficult combinations, especially if transit planets aspect the natal planet with aspects:

■ Conjunction (0) degrees
■ Half-square (45) degrees = the beginning of the first crisis
■ Sextile (60) degrees = a very powerful aspect because it brings a lot of problem solving.
■ Square (90) degrees = huge difficulties.
■ Trigon (120) degrees = Protection and happy aspect.
■ Opposition (180) degrees = the most vicious aspect and the person must be well guarded during this period, since this aspect causes huge conflicts and conflicts of various divisions

Angular planets are as crucial as angular signs, because then they activate transit planets, and act strikingly.

If, for example: natal Venus is in an angular house or in an angular sign, crossing of transit Saturn through it will bring an end to love, but if that same Venus is aspected in a natal chart with Saturn in a harmonic sign, then its meanings are very positive and the person in crossing of transit Saturn through natal Venus, one can easily marry and be pregnant.

When looking at transit planets on a natal chart, a division is made in the foreground or in the secondary.

Fast planets often do not bring nothing and sometimes bring an impact, while slow planets are of "crucial" importance.

The slow planets are: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto and North Lunar Node, South Lunar Node.

Uranus is not slow, although it is thought that because its influence is the same as Mercury or the sign of Gemini, its meanings are exactly the same.

If a planet is positioned to a significant degree or is in a position where it rules, it will always activate a particular natal planet, and will bring the event of the sign in which the transit planet is located.

Declinations, parallels are important for the activation of a transit planet.

If the declinations are different, nothing should be expected of a transit planet or a natal sign dominated by a transiting planet.

It is especially important to pay attention to ASC and MC as they are "CRUCIAL". Any crossing of any planet across these points will trigger an event. Here one has to be "careful" and "right in a minute" to calculate when any transit planet will touch these imaginary points.

Unless you calculate the "EXACTLY IN MINUTE" transition of a transit planet, you will not know the date when the event will happen, what changes you must make and on what day. Anything related to love, work, money, travel, pregnancy, death, without the "EXACT MINUTE" of calculating the transition of transit planets, you cannot get what you are interested in.

There is no "OPPORTUNITY" here or there may or may not be something, there is no saying here "may and may not". On these points is your "Sealed Destiny" and with that you can see how accurate your birth hour is.

Here, when looking at it, if ASC or MC is just one degree different from what you calculated, then it is 7 years up or down. Exactly at these imaginary points you get such specific answers and you will know exactly the day, as you can know the day when you need to avoid something.

All other points are "INESSENTIAL" and Jupiter will never do well unless it touches an imaginary MC or ASC point.

There is no love unless Venus touches these particular points.
Saturn, if it touches these points, then beware.

But if you look at all the transits across certain planets, it's like jumping like a butterfly from flower to flower, so you won't learn anything. You have to sit down and work hard, you cannot learn without practice. You have to manually calculate everything, because this way you will understand how difficult astrology is, how complicated it is to explain a particular aspect or configurations for which there is some interest. You must have the "RIGHT NATAL CHART" for everyone if you do not have the correct natal chart, you will hardly know at all when something will happen. The empty stories can be led by anyone, such as: it may or may not be, and we with our strong will, we can change all that, etc ... that kind of interpretation or learning comes down to being extremely stupid and not at all "professional".

In interpreting transits, each person must give good consideration to the transits impact. When interpreting transiting planets, the "EXACT" positions of transit are very important, because if interpreted according to the Western astrology system, a huge mistake will be made and many events will not happen.

Every beginner of astrology should follow at least the "heavy" transits and study the impact on his birth chart, as well as whether the transiting moon or some transiting planet made an eclipse or brought an important event.

Transiting planets pretty much activate a natal or solar, progressive chart. You may not have a specific aspect in the natal chart, but in a progressive horoscope you may have and the transit aspect will only bring you activation and you have focused in vain only on the natal chart. When looking at transit planets, you have to look at a complete and natal and solar and progressive chart.

If you are looking at transiting planets, just look at your birth chart, then try something like this. As in Western astrology and in Oriental astrology, the passage of the planet through various zodiac signs produces good or bad results depending on the nature and position on the basic chart. The system is as follows:

Transits to houses are counted starting from the Moon and not from the Ascendant: houses are counted starting from the natal Moon in the same way as we usually count them from the Ascendant: the place where the Moon represents its first house should not be confused with the Ascendant, the sign and the next house will be second house and its sign, etc. for other houses.

This is a transit law. Do not allow volatile influences, and do not begin to interpret or respond to any book of "possibility" or astrologer of possibility. Once you have learned the basic rule of how to look, it will be easy for you later.

The Sun, if it passes through houses 3, 6, 10 and 11 of the natal Moon, will produce good results. In other houses, poor results.

The Moon, if it passes through houses 1, 3, 6, 7, 10 and 11 from the natal position, always brings good while in other houses it is terribly bad.

Mercury when it goes to houses 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 11 of the natal Moon brings good while in other houses it does bad.

This is just to see how it goes, otherwise to determine where the planet feels good, read carefully about the transits because it has already been written, as well as which planet is bad if found with a particular planet.

Young beginners of astrology, do not get carried away but sit and work, count, because if you do so you will learn a lot, do not be lazy and expect others to give you everything right, because if you get everything right, then how will you know what should you do?

Because when you "INDIVIDUALLY" calculate your horoscope, only in this way you will be able to see the "limits" of astrology and only in this way you will catch up with everything that has been said about its capabilities.
