This is a question that my daughter often asks me. So I thought maybe there might be some people out there who would like an answer to this question as well. First of all, what is a transit as it applies in astrology, and secondly, how does it affect me? In astrology when we talk about transits we are discussing the current position of the planets, Sun, Moon, and asteroids, etc. in relationship to where we live. If you want to know how these transits affect you, then we would cast a bi-wheel that would place your natal chart in the center with the transits on the outer chart. So when you ask, “What’s up with my transits?” you are asking,”How do the current positions of the planets, etc., relate to my natal chart? How does this energy affect me? Does this energy help explain how I feel? How can I make the most of this energy?” The birth chart or natal chart is a blueprint for your potential in this life. The transits, in relationship to your natal chart, show potential difficulties and/or opportunities for growth and development at a particular time in your life. For example, you may have heard of the “Saturn Return.” This is the time when the planet Saturn returns by transit to its placement at the time of your birth. This happens approximately every 29 years. Since Saturn is the “Power of Limitation,” when Saturn returns to its original sign and degree, it is an opportunity to get serious about your life’s work. It is time to reassess your life’s direction and get rid of any unnecessary possessions, attachments, distractions, etc. that may be interfering with your life’s purpose. The energy of the transits is very significant. Therefore, if you want to make the most of the current energy then it would be very helpful to have an annual reading that would tell you, “What’s up with my transits?” (Other important points that I discuss in an annual reading is the progressed chart, which shows the current development of your natal potential.)
