INTRODUCTION: PROGRESSED CHART
Your Personality Profile is revealed by the imprints of the planets in your NATAL Chart. The NATAL REPORT is a projection of “Personality Potential” and can be compared to a “Blueprint” of a building that is being planned for construction. At different stages of development while the building is being built, certain additions, deletions and/or other changes may become desirable (or even necessary) and the original blueprint may be modified to accommodate those changes. And so it is with your personality as indicated by your NATAL Chart. During the “building” of your life, your personality is being developed, and the imprints of the personality blueprint are being modified and/or changed, both by your own choices and by circumstances beyond your control.
The progression of the planets as they continue their respective orbits into different signs and houses, and the aspects they form, are beyond our control. But we DO have some control over how we handle these new influences, and how we let them affect our personality. In order to deal with these influences, it certainly would help for us to know WHAT these influences are, and WHEN we will have to deal with them. The PROGRESSED REPORT provides that information: the WHAT, the WHEN, and (in some reports) the HOW.
Now, for the first time, we have a Progressed Report that not only tells us WHAT, WHEN, and HOW–it also tells us HOW LONG! It locates the signs, the aspects, and the house positions for each of the planets for any given year of your life and tells you how long they will remain in those positions. With each of the interpretations for these progressed planetary positions, we include a brief synopsis of the influences and imprints of its position in your Natal Chart for your comparison.
Many techniques for following the development of man from birth through life have been devised and studied by Astrologers since about the second or third century BC. The technique used in this Report is called “Secondary Progressions”. This system uses the “Day for a Year” process which appears to have been practiced since Ptolemy and Copernicus, and was supported by the German mathematician Johannes Kepler (1571-1630). The system is implemented by choosing a specific birthday. We then count a day for each year of your life, and cast a chart for the “progressed birthday”.
The Progressed chart is the first chart used in Predictive Astrology, for it provides a good preview and overview of what you can expect in the coming year. We feel that the Progressed chart provides the first step toward using Astrology for a better and more fully informed way of living life — AS IT UNFOLDS.
When combined with information obtained from a “FORECAST REPORT”, OR “TRANSIT REPORT”, which interprets the aspects of the transiting planets (where the planets actually WILL be at any given time), we can get an extremely comprehensive body of predictive information for any “progressed year”–and beyond. Check with your personal Astrologer for information concerning these Reports.
YOUR PROGRESSED ASCENDANT
Like the Sun-sign, progressing the chart will change the sign on the cusp of the first house, your Ascendant. It will also bring influences of the new sign into play upon the personality in changing, modifying, and “blending” experiences. Each time a new sign “rises” on the first house, you may feel a little disoriented, especially during the first year or two. This is because different methods, or “styles” of operating in interpersonal and business transactions can vary considerably under the influence of different Rising signs. Since the Ascendant represents the face (the “Mask”) we show the world, others may begin to see us in a different light before we become aware of any changes in ourselves.
Unlike the Sun’s thirty-year cycle, the change cycles of the Ascendant may not be as predictable as the Sun, since the houses may have more, or less, than thirty degrees. Casting the chart for the place of residence instead of the birthplace can also affect the degree of the Ascendant. The exact time of changes from the birth chart Ascendant and from the progressed Rising-signs can be difficult to trace when changes of residence are extreme.
The Rising sign in the Progressed chart determines the signs on the houses, just as it does in the Natal chart. Each time the Ascendant changes, the sign on the cusps of the other eleven houses may change, also. The interpretations of the signs on the houses will give some clues regarding the affairs of each house during the year for which the Progressed chart is cast. These signs on the cusps may not change very much from year to year unless you move your place of residence a significant distance from one geographic location to another.
Your Progressed Ascendant is now at six degrees of the sign, Virgo. The following interpretations are for the current year and place of residence.
PROGRESSED VIRGO RISING WITH NATAL ASCENDANT IN LIBRA–Those who have Libra rising over the eastern horizon at the time of their birth have a primary need for harmony in their lives. Others see in you extreme sensitivity and receptivity–a sensitive nature which can be extremely upsetting to you when you find yourself in situations of disharmony and strife from which you cannot escape. You appear remarkably social to others, for these graces come naturally to you. Good taste seems to be an inborn trait, and your appearance is rarely sloppy. You are not seen as a loner, but rather to have a distinct need for companionship. Others see you as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and “nice” person. Though there is much more to you, this is the sort of face you show to the world. You possess personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. You usually take a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful attitude. Compromise can be a positive characteristic in helping you achieve your goals. You are never an intellectual lightweight, and are rarely as simple and uncomplicated as you may appear on the surface.
When the Ascendant moves into Virgo in the PROGRESSED Chart, the greatest shift in emphasis is from the Self to the JOB. Virgo is the sign of the workaholic. Order, neatness, and organization are vital to the Virgo’s method of operation. You will notice objects in a room that others may not even know is there. You will be good at research and planning and you may seek jobs that require minute attention to detail. You will need to watch for the tendency to overanalyze things during this life cycle. Relationships can be difficult because your expectations for perfection in others can be unrealistic. You could become so immersed in detail that you fail to see the overall picture. Because of the neat and orderly mind of the Virgo Rising, you may be quick to criticize those less organized. You may not realize how blunt or sharp you can be, and thus be totally unaware of your ability to hurt or wound–which you certainly don’t mean to do. To you, facts are just naturally facts and everyone should know that. And you are not given much to pampering or coddling. You are not uncaring, so you need to be aware that your cool approach can come across like ice at times.
PROGRESSED LIBRA ON 2ND HOUSE–Venus, planet of beauty, art, and social matters rules Libra, sign of balance and fair play. When it is found progressed into the second house of finances, money is likely to be made through partnerships or joint enterprises. It could be through activities under the Venus influence, and more than likely through small business efforts during this time. You like nice things and may spend money, but you will also earn and save.
PROGRESSED SCORPIO ON 3RD HOUSE–Scorpio is a Fixed sign of the water family, ruled by Pluto, planet of power and regeneration. When in the third house of communications in the Progressed Chart, keen perception is present and satire is likely. You will have a quick wit, but may be prone to express it through sarcasm. There could be some difficulties with close relatives while Scorpio is on this house. Your business acumen could propel you into positions of power.
PROGRESSED SCORPIO ON 4TH HOUSE–Pluto rules Scorpio on the fourth house of the Progressed Chart. Scorpio is represented by the Eagle and the Serpent, while Pluto is the planet of regeneration and the underworld. This configuration in the fourth house of home-life can make you gruff with your household, but let outsiders beware! Any criticism from others will be totally resented, even if you agree with them. Yours is likely to be an active home, with a special place, or “den” for you.
PROGRESSED CAPRICORN ON 5TH HOUSE–Saturn, planet of discipline and limitations, rules Capricorn, an earth sign in the Cardinal mode–administrative, practical, persevering. When on the fifth house of love, romance, and creative expression in the Progressed Chart, the appearance could be cold and austere. Looks can be deceiving now, and could hide strong sex needs and desire. Expression can be very deliberate now. Gambling could be fortunate, however, during this progression.
PROGRESSED AQUARIUS ON 6TH HOUSE–Aquarius is an air sign in the Fixed mode. It signifies steadfastness, uniqueness, and strong social attitudes. Uranus, planet of ingenuity, sudden changes, and electricity, is the ruler. When found in the Progressed Chart on the sixth house of work, service, and health, you will like to do your work and to provide your services in your own way. You can usually get others to back you up. Your style can be unique, and you are likely to be original and inventive during this position. Avoid stress and overwork to protect from heart problems and stroke.
PROGRESSED PISCES ON 7TH HOUSE–Pisces is a water sign in the Mutable mode. It signifies receptivity and intuition. It is ruled by Neptune, planet of the visionary, the mystic, the occult. When progressed into the seventh house of marriage and partnership, you are likely to seek for the opposite to the Virgo rising in your partner or mate–the visionary, religious, mystic side of that person. If value judgments can be resolved while this progression is in the chart, this can be a powerful combination where one complements the other.
PROGRESSED ARIES ON 8TH HOUSE–Aries, the first sign of new beginnings, is ruled by Mars, planet of action and sexual energy. When this fire sign in the Cardinal mode is in the eighth house of needs, primal instincts and death, personal energy may overrule cooperation with others. Other’s resources may be used up, and needs could be supplied primarily by your own efforts. You will be too busy to think about death, but accidents could intrude while Aries is here.
PROGRESSED TAURUS ON 9TH HOUSE–Taurus, sign of security and determination, is an earth sign in the Fixed mode. It is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, art, social activity, etc. When this sign is progressed into the ninth house of recognition, philosophy, and higher mind, you are likely to appreciate dogma and the status quo. You will want to travel first class, and are likely to be recognized now by your expression of artistic achievement or endeavors.
PROGRESSED TAURUS ON 10TH HOUSE–This is the House of recognition, personal achievement, honor, and career or vocation. Taurus, the “bull” is ruled by Venus, planet of aesthetics, material resources, love, and sociability. When this sign is found on the cusp of the tenth house of the Progressed Chart, it indicates a desire for wealth and recognition to be fulfilled by the profession or vocation. Real estate could become an avenue of speculation now, or you could begin some sort of an avocation in some area of the arts. You will earn money to support high standards of living.
PROGRESSED CANCER ON 11TH HOUSE–This is the house of friendship, love received, hopes and goals. Cancer is a water sign in the Cardinal mode and influences emotions and security. It is ruled by the Moon, the most emotional planet. This sign on the cusp of the eleventh house of the Progressed Chart indicates strong emotional ties with friends. You may adopt a mothering attitude towards them now, and you will need to be careful to select a majority of friends who are stable and steadfast. You can be emotionally drained by friends through your own intuitive empathy, so you will sometimes need to keep a distance.
PROGRESSED LEO ON 12TH HOUSE–Leo is a Fixed, fire sign, ruled by the Sun. When it is progressed into the twelfth house of the subconscious and hidden matters, it can help to provide illumination into the dark recesses of the mind. You need time alone to explore the subconscious, and are likely to be attracted to things of the occult. Seek positive directions in occult studies during this time. You could have many sudden mystic insights now.
PROGRESSED SUN IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
The Sun moves forward (counter-clockwise) in the Progressed chart from its Natal position at the approximate rate of one degree for each year of life. This means that the Sun will progress into a different sign by, or before, age thirty. Remember that these Natal Sun-sign influences are with us all our lives in the form of birth imprints. In the Progressed chart, the new Sun-sign will influence, enhance, modify, and/or blend with those in the Natal chart–and so with any subsequent progressed Sun-signs. The influences may be most recognizable during the first year for which a Progressed chart has been cast after the Sun has moved into the next sign. Sometimes there can be events or situations which trigger significant life changes (relocation, graduation, job change, marriage, divorce, new home, etc.). Some of these could vividly high-light the influences of the Sun entering into a different sign.
As you read this report, look back over your life and try to remember if there were any events that could have changed your directions or goals when the Sun entered a new sign. You can count back to 00 degrees from the Sun-Sign degree of this chart to find the year, letting each degree count as one year. Allow about three years on either side of that actual date.
At the end of the thirty years that each new Sun-sign remains in the Progressed charts, the personality will have somewhat absorbed and assimilated the influences of all of these Sun-sign positions–and so with the new progressions to come. As in all Astrology, you have, and have had, free will to make choices. Those choices can be very significant in determining how much effect the Progressed Sun positions have in modifying your Personality Profile. Transiting planetary aspects to the Sun can also help you anticipate new influences and enhance the sense of timing. Hopefully, you will be able to make better life choices based upon an expanded base of information through astrology.
Your Progressed Sun is now in the ninth year of a 30-year cycle in the sign, Capricorn. You have about 22 years left in this life-cycle.
PROGRESSED SUN IN CAPRICORN WITH NATAL SUN IN LIBRA–Harmony and balance are the keynotes with your NATAL Sun in Libra. You instinctively understand the need to accommodate the interests and desires of others, and you are always fair and willing to meet the other person half way. Tactful, diplomatic and socially aware, you do all you can to avoid conflict and discord. You express a spirit of cooperation and compromise, and often achieve your goals through charm and discretion which would have been impossible to accomplish by a more direct, forceful approach. Material things are not as important to you as is the human condition, but you are likely to accumulate things material, nevertheless. You also have a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate in your home and workplace. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling for you. You are probably quick to initiate new projects or ideas, but usually seek the cooperation of others rather than continue alone. You have a special need for companionship in order to be fulfilled, yet you need to maintain your own individuality within the framework of a relationship. Marriage and partnerships could be a primary concern.
Progressed Scorpio influences are almost opposite the influences of your NATAL Libra. Rather than seek the cooperation of others, Scorpio will charge ahead on his own to fulfill his goals. Intensity and self-promotion will drive the ambition during the Scorpio progression. Relationships could suffer. Progressed Sagittarius will have added idealism and some ingenuity to the ambition, with a little more consideration for others.
At the time of life when most people are looking at retiring from their profession, vocation, or business, the Capricorn Sun comes along in the PROGRESSED Chart, bringing with it renewed ambition, vigor, and determination. Whether or not your life has been successful up to now, these could be some of your most productive years. Capricorn is often referred to as the “business sign” and if you are not already in business for yourself, you could start one during this progression. You will have a strong desire and determination now to provide for your “later years”. One of your greatest fears is to become dependent upon someone else and not able to provide for yourself. This is not a good progression for personal relationships, for you may have great difficulty in showing warmth and emotion. The cool exterior is only skin deep, but you may not take the time, or may not be able, to express your inward feelings. Work on developing consideration for the feelings of others or you could wind up very lonely. Try to avoid becoming known as a “Crusty old character”.
PROGRESSED SUN IN 4TH HOUSE–The Sun in the houses represents the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. The house position of the Sun in the PROGRESSED chart is also very significant. Physically, the Sun rules the basic energy of the body as well as the energy of the psyche. Consequently, it can affect the physical and psychological vigor and enthusiasm with which we address the concerns of that house. In the fourth house, your concerns will focus upon your most intimate personal life and the people who affect it most. You will crave familiar surroundings and will feel the need for some kind of center or significant place where you can build a base for your activities. For most people, this indicates that the home takes on a deeper meaning. The attention will be focused inward in a psychological sense, for this is a time of subjective consciousness, of feeling exactly where you are with respect to the rest of the world, and of getting in touch with the very deepest levels of your feelings. Past events may come back to you through intense memories, or even through delayed consequences of past events that continue to affect you now. You may need to examine the past and the psychological consequences it still has on you, especially in the area of events involving parents or previous family experiences. You may find that the past has generated behavior patterns that are completely inappropriate for your life at this time, and that such patterns are a major source of tension for you. Psychological self-evaluation can be of enormous help to you in your personal growth during this Sun position in the fourth house of the Progressed Chart. Even if you have to get the help of a professional counselor to sort things out, it will be worth it.
PROGRESSED MOON IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
The close proximity of the Moon to the earth and its rotation around the earth causes it to pass between the earth and each sign of the Zodiac quite rapidly. It averages about thirteen degrees per day–a little less than three days per sign. Under the day-for-a-year progression system, it will take approximately thirty months, two-and-a-half years, for it to complete each life-cycle of the Moon.
The Moon is the only “planet” that could show up more than once in a Progressed chart in the same sign in which it was found in the Natal chart. Although these natal influences “imprint” our personalities and are with us throughout our lifetime, when the Moon appears in the same sign in the Progressed chart, it can give us an opportunity to modify even those natal imprints to some extent. In the delineations for the Progressed Moon-signs, we will include the Natal Moon-sign interpretations.
In mythology the Moon is always female–as the Sun is always male. In most ancient cults and religions, the Moon represents the female force which reflects the male force of the Sun. There were many ancient Lunar holidays and festivals. In modern religion, the date for the Easter holiday is still determined by the Moon’s orbit.
In astrology, “she” dispenses her influences indiscriminately upon male and female alike, though each sex is likely to respond to the influences in somewhat different ways. The Moon-sign influences in the Progressed chart will affect the emotional side of your personality as it was imprinted by the sign the Moon was in at birth and modified by subsequent progressed Moon-sign influences. The intensity of the changes can range from deeply sub-conscious to dramatically emotional.
Your Progressed Moon is now at 25 degrees of an approximate two-and-a-half-year life cycle in the sign, Pisces. You should have, roughly, 06 months left until it moves into the next Moon-sign cycle.
PROGRESSED MOON IN PISCES WITH NATAL MOON IN LEO–The Moon in NATAL Leo indicates an emotionally proud individual with a flair for drama. You have an unconscious need to be admired and appreciated–and a conscious need for romance and affection. You may occasionally have doubts about your own self worth, often interspersed with feelings of invincible superiority. It is the latter side that you are likely to show the public in order to protect your emotional vulnerability. You are extremely romantic and sexual, and intimate relationships are essential to your feeling of well-being. You love challenge, and the thrill of the chase could be more exciting than capturing the quarry. You are likely to place the love object upon a pedestal to admire and worship. You can be extremely loving and self-sacrificing in romantic relationships, but heaven help the partner who should fail to show appreciation. If a relationship should become stale and routine, you are likely to seek a new conquest. You like to feel bright, enthusiastic and up-beat. Bright colors will appeal to you, as will sunshiny days. If you have a down day, you are likely to hide away and “lick your wounds”. It would be advisable to avoid alcohol and other drugs to elevate your mood–they could prove to be too effective, with the risk of addiction. You are ambitious and have big dreams. Leadership roles come easy to you, and you do make a good boss. You may change jobs often, for the grass will always look a little greener on the other side of the fence. Your greatest goals may not always be achieved because the glow and grandeur of gargantuan dreams could not sustain sufficient urgency for their fulfillment. You may dramatize your feelings and appear self-centered, but you are a sucker for flattery. A little praise will make your day. You will want your home to be a show place, you are well-groomed, and you want your family to be at their best. Also, you do need to watch for tendencies toward inconsistency and stubbornness.
When the Moon moves into the sign Pisces in the PROGRESSED Chart, it brings a supersensitive nature which acts like a psychic sponge, soaking up the thoughts and emotions of others. This could make you feel so vulnerable that you could withdraw into seclusion to protect yourself emotionally. This can make it difficult for both business and personal relationships. You will be rather passive and prone to procrastination, but you may tend to end relationships before the other person does in order to avoid getting hurt. However, you are likely to be extremely kind and sympathetic now. You may have a vivid imagination during this time, verging on the mediumistic. This could result in enormous poetic, musical, or artistic talent. You will not feel aggressive or even very assertive during this life cycle, but you will find others very willing to do things for you. You need to avoid alcohol and other drugs, for you will be vulnerable to addiction. Seek spiritual guidance during this progression in order to channel the dominance of your subconscious mind into positive directions.
PROGRESSED MOON IN 7TH HOUSE–The Moon in the houses indicates the areas of daily activity through which your feelings are manifested, and gives clues to the type of activity on the domestic scene. The Moon will pass through all the houses of the Natal Chart approximately every twenty-eight days, making its daily and hourly influences very fleeting. In this Progressed Chart house however, it provides another turning point, moving away from self-improvement influences, and emerging into public expression. There could be new partnerships–or renewed and invigorated relationships, resulting from the period when the Moon crossed the fourth house cusp. You can get to understand your emotional self better through understanding your personal relationships more completely.
PROGRESSED SUN-MOON SIGN COMBINATION
As in the Natal Chart, the blend of the Progressed Sun-Moon influences are extremely significant toward understanding the modification of the personality from that which was indicated by the Natal Chart. We urge you to review the interpretation in your Natal Chart. The interpretation of the Progressed Sun-Moon blend is printed next. Study it carefully, in addition to the delineations of Sun in Sign, Sun in House, Moon in Sign, and Moon in House. We suggest that you compare them also with the same interpretations in your Natal Chart.
PROGRESSED: CAPRICORN SUN AND PISCES MOON–Capricorn is a Cardinal, earth sign: Pisces is Mutable, water. They are in sextile aspect. The personality could be serious but shy when this configuration is found in the Progressed chart. Caring softens the power of the Capricorn. The ambition gains an awareness beyond the Self. You will be very deep, kind, intuitive, and compassionate. You are likely to choose a career within the “people-caring-for-people” professions, such as medicine, law, or mental health. You may assume responsibilities too readily during this time, and your intuitive empathy can set you up to be drained by those more needy. You need to associate with positive, optimistic people during this life cycle, as you could be prone to psychosomatic illnesses if you become depressed. Seek direction, strength, and inspiration through positive prayer and meditation during this progression. You will make the world a better place.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
Mercury in the signs gives clues to the kinds of concerns that occupy your mind and reveals your psychological approach to making decisions and conveying your ideas to others. Mercury influences the kind of communications you have with other people throughout the year: those received as well as those you send. It indicates shifts in mental focus and intellectual attention as they are impacted by the influences of the Progressed sign. It can also indicate travel, such as short trips which don’t upset the daily routine too much. You can usually count on not being bored by Mercury influences, and the daily routine is more likely to be intensified rather than subdued. On another level, Mercury IS the every day routine, indicating everything we are so accustomed to that we don’t even notice it. On still another level, it may indicate a time when you should just sit and think.
Mercury takes a little less than thirty years to progress through the thirty degrees of each sign, so we may have a little “stretch” or a little “overlap” of influences when using the day-for-a-year progression system. We have tried to adjust the degree of Mercury in its current Progressed sign to give you some rough idea of how long it will be until it enters the next Progressed sign.
Your Progressed Mercury is now in the 25th degree of an approximate thirty-year life-cycle in the sign, Sagittarius. You could have, roughly, 06 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS WITH NATAL MERCURY IN SCORPIO–When Mercury is in Scorpio in the NATAL Chart, it gives you an intuitive mind capable of profound insights. You see things accurately, but not necessarily charitably. If you cannot express yourself openly, you will remain silent. You have much resourcefulness and a great determination of mind, and you can surmount obstacles that many would not attempt. You have good mental concentration and the ability to become completely immersed in your work. You seem to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and you prefer learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. You have mechanical ability and can work well with your hands. You also have an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that you relate better to them than you do to people. You tend to become narrowly focused upon your own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside that field. Because of these self-directed interests, personal relationships may be difficult. You need to work on understanding and trusting other people, and on accepting others for who they are and where they are. Above all, learn to allow yourself to be “only human”, also.
When Mercury moves into the sign Sagittarius in the PROGRESSED Chart, it influences your mind to focus on attitudes behind the facts. This kind of approach can give you great insight into social motivation and its subsequent events during this busy life cycle. The Scorpio focus on self will be somewhat moderated, and idealism and concern for the universal community will evolve. Goals and ambition will include more concern for the good of humanity, and the self interest of Scorpio will now develop into more concern for the public arena. Ambition and personal goals will gain some powerful incentive and achievement potential during this progression. You will be much concerned with education, especially in the fields of religion, philosophy, and law. You are direct in speech and will say exactly what you think. Existing personal relationships could be expanded and new ones possibly begun. Marriage is possible during this life cycle. Since your ideas are likely to be near the traditional now, you will be respected for your directness. You need to keep aware that facts are not always attitudes, so as not to confuse the two or ignore the facts.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN 4TH HOUSE–Mercury in the houses deals with the practical affairs that occupy your mind, and shows what areas of activity will be influenced by your thoughts and communications. The fourth house position in the Progressed chart indicates that much of your thinking and learning will happen in your home. Even your business may be conducted from the home, as that is where the practical side of your mind is likely to be the most effective during this time. You may collect a large home library as your intellectual pursuits will be many. Your desire to constantly improve on your intellectual environment now may cause you to move often, possibly in mobile homes or trailers. Your communications center will revolve around your telephone, but you may choose a nomadic type of life while this progression is in force.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
Venus in the signs indicates how you express your emotions in personal relationships. It also influences your attitudes toward money, personal possessions, creature comforts, and social and aesthetic values. Venus is a social planet, usually bringing people together for parties and good times. It is also the planet of LOVE, and its impressions combined with the influences of the signs can tell you quite a bit about your experiences in love and romance. It is also the planet of creativity: of artistic talent and entertainment. The influences of the different signs of the Zodiac can help to dictate the forms of expression indicated to display these talents.
The annual orbit of Venus is usually only five or six days away from the orbiting time of the Sun, so it fits the day-for-a-year progression system quite well. Though there may be a very little stretch or overlap, we are pretty safe in estimating a degree of progression per year for Venus, as with the Sun.
Your Progressed Venus is now in the 26th degree of an approximate thirty year life-cycle in the sign, Scorpio. You have, roughly, 05 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN SCORPIO WITH NATAL VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS–This combination is only possible when Venus is only slightly into the sign Sagittarius in the NATAL Chart. Venus could then enter Scorpio in your PROGRESSED Chart through Retrograde motion.
When Venus is in Sagittarius in the NATAL Chart, your emotions and responses are idealistic and spiritually oriented. You like religious ceremony and pageantry. You like to be objective and unemotional in personal relationships, sticking to the old values as defined by tradition and accepted religious practices. In love and romance, you seek companionship and friendship with someone who is fun-loving and open to adventure and new experiences. You will enjoy traveling together, meeting new people, making new friends. Honeymooning in a distant place would appeal to you. You are also attracted to foreigners or someone with a totally different background from yours. You support your partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. You also very much want a partner who will encourage and support your own aspirations and dreams. You are not overly sentimental: your love partner could often feel that you are TOO casual and not serious or romantic enough. It is very important to you that you have a spiritual or intellectual rapport with your love partner–perhaps more important than the emotional/physical relationship. You need to refrain from pushing your more traditional beliefs and practices onto others. Seek spiritual guidance for what is right for you.
With Venus in Scorpio in the PROGRESSED Chart, the emotions and sexual desires can be strong and passionate, jealous and secretive, with much pride in sex and romance. You can take your romances too personally and too seriously, but you give much in emotional expression and expect much in return. You will become more assertive in relationships and more able to let significant others know what it is you want and expect. Love and romance will be on your own terms. If a marriage is in trouble now, it will either be revived according to your terms, or you will probably terminate it. Your artistic tastes are likely to turn to the dramatic and sensational during this time. You are highly sensitive to others, and may be psychic. This progression gives you an intuitive mind capable of profound insights. During this period, you see things accurately, but not necessarily charitably. You will keep your personal pride and emotional dignity against all odds now, sometimes to the point of appearing cold and remote. You need to watch out for tendencies to control others in close personal relationships.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN 3RD HOUSE–Venus in the houses indicate how you express the Venus attitudes in the various areas of your life. When progressed into the third house it emphasizes an intellectual interest in artistic and cultural pursuits. This is also a pleasant Venus position for relations with neighbors and friends, short journeys, social activities, and correspondence. You are likely to have a special love for literature and poetry during this progressed position. You will communicate harmoniously, through both speech and writing, especially beautiful love letters and romantic poems.
PROGRESSED MARS IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
Mars is energy and action. “His” influences provide means of expression for the influences of the other planets through direct action. It can express temperament, set fire to the emotions, activate ambition, spur romance on, and sometimes set the stage for accidents. In mythology, Mars is the God of War.
It takes Mars an average of about twenty-two months to progress into a new sign, depending upon Retrograde movement, etc. Therefore it will be difficult to establish an accurate time frame for the duration of the Progressed Mars influences. We use two years as an approximation, but the length of time left in each sign cannot be very accurate. However, each time you have a Progressed chart cast, the position of Mars for that year will be accurate.
Mars is now at 10 degrees of the sign, Capricorn. It takes approximately 60 years for Mars to pass through one sign in the Progressed chart. You have, roughly, 42 years left until it moves into the next Mars life-cycle.
PROGRESSED MARS IN CAPRICORN WITH NATAL MARS IN SCORPIO–With Mars in Scorpio in the NATAL Chart the energy of the personality takes on an intensity of depth and determination. You will utilize your power in all areas of your life, especially in “getting ahead”, where you will let nothing or nobody get in your way. It would be healthy for you to channel some of this energy through sports activities, and you also need to learn to be sensitive and considerate to the feelings of others.
When Mars moves into Capricorn in the PROGRESSED Chart, it channels great energy into professional ambition. When it is found here, your actions are likely to be well organized and carefully calculated to achieve professional success. You will have an intense desire for status and recognition, and can be extremely materialistic. You need practical reasons for everything you do, so the energy you use is usually highly effective. You are likely to possess extraordinary self control and discipline during this time. You have no sympathy for laziness and lack of ambition and you take pride in doing a job correctly. You need to balance your materialistic desires with understanding of human values and the consideration of others, lest you appear selfish, cold, and calculating.
PROGRESSED MARS IN 5TH HOUSE–Mars in the houses indicates the areas of life in which you express your actions and desires, and where you need to use energy and initiative in order to get results. When it is progressed into the fifth house, you will be filled with energies which demand to express who you are. It is a time to be self-assertive and demand to be yourself. These influences can be exhibited in sportive, physical ways, and lovemaking will tend to be more physical. There could be conflicts with children, though not usually of a serious nature. You will probably have very little discipline for doing things you want to do during this progression, and may find it hard to get down to doing anything you don’t really want to do.
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS:
The rest of the planets take much longer to orbit through the signs and houses. Unless they were in the last few degrees of the Natal sign, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are probably still in the signs and houses they were in when you were born. If any of them have progressed into the next sign, the program will print the influences of the new sign as it compares to the old. It will only interpret the progressed house position. A major move in geographic location which changes the Ascendant may also change the house cusps and the signs on the houses.
PROGRESSED JUPITER IN SCORPIO WITH NATAL JUPITER IN SCORPIO–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long-term.
Jupiter in the signs influences your ethical, religious, and philosophical standards and beliefs, and how you may express these interests. Jupiter in Scorpio in the NATAL Chart imprints your personality with a powerful will and deep emotions. Your mind is active and analytical, proud and aggressive, and can function both constructively and destructively with the same amount of enthusiasm. The message here indicates a strong need for discipline and positive direction. Follow your inclination toward metaphysical and occult studies, seeking positive directions in the psychic regions of your mind. Avoid any attempts to enforce your beliefs upon others and moderate your tendencies to control their social conduct and principles.
PROGRESSED JUPITER IN 3RD HOUSE–Jupiter in the houses indicates the departments of life and the types of activity through which you express your religious, philosophic, and educational ideas. The affairs of the houses into which it progresses indicate those areas of life in which you are trying to grow and the means by which you are trying to achieve growth. In the third house it increases your contacts through and within your immediate surroundings. There could be opportunities for advanced training, and your concerns with communications will increase. You may do some writing, and some travel opportunities may present themselves. Thoughts for the future may be more expansive, and you could realize that limitations you thought were imposed upon you were primarily self-imposed. Most important in the long run is the possible effect of this position on your mind and your consciousness. Your thinking will be less subject to limitations imposed by subconscious attitudes and old thought patterns, and your attitude toward the world around you will be much more tolerant, generous and understanding.
PROGRESSED SATURN IN LEO WITH NATAL SATURN IN LEO–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long-term.
Saturn in the signs indicates the areas in which you must accept responsibility and the ways in which you must practice discipline and develop maturity. In the sign Leo in the NATAL Chart, these imprints on the personality are likely to be distorted by egotism and your desire for power. You have a compulsive drive for personal control and a great need for recognition and self-importance. You will need to practice all the discipline Saturn can bestow in order to develop a proper set of values in dealing with love, romance, children, and self-expression. In your profession, you will probably attain positions of power and leadership. Be satisfied with that, and remember, there is a Power greater than ourselves.
PROGRESSED SATURN IN 11TH HOUSE–Saturn in the houses indicates the areas of life in which we must learn to act with discipline: how to build structure and express practical ambition through maturity. Saturn progressed into this house encourages you to combine, or integrate your efforts with group expression. Friends will want to feel that you are with them. This is also a time to assess where you are in achieving your life’s hopes and wishes. If you are making progress, culmination can be expected when Saturn progresses into the twelfth house. If, on the other hand, progress is flawed, the next house will see a cleaning up and starting over.
PROGRESSED URANUS IN GEMINI WITH NATAL URANUS IN GEMINI–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long term.
Uranus in the signs indicates the ways in which you express your urge for freedom and individuality, and how you establish your link with the Universal Mind. In Gemini in the NATAL Chart, Uranus imprints the personality with brilliant, original, intuitive minds. You may find it difficult to follow an idea through to completion because of extreme mental restlessness. You need mental freedom for new ways of thinking. You also need to exert self-discipline and concentration. You are likely to break with habitual living patterns, maybe often, but you need to practice acceptance of other’s ways of living.
PROGRESSED URANUS IN 10TH HOUSE–Uranus in the houses indicates the types of activities through which you express your urge toward freedom and individuality. In the tenth house of the Progressed Chart, it could indicate interest in an unusual profession or renewed interest in the reputation. Originality is the theme: uncommon lines of thought, new lines of activity, and customs and codes of your own. Your desire for freedom could influence you to undo and overthrow all bonds of limitation at this time. You are strong-willed and ambitious to achieve prominence through unique contributions to your profession. You will not appreciate authority and routine responsibility.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN LIBRA WITH NATAL NEPTUNE IN LIBRA–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long term.
LAST TIME IN LIBRA IN 1957-NEXT POSSIBLE IN YEAR 2120–Neptune in the signs manifests more historical and generational influences than personal. In Libra in the NATAL Chart, it indicates the kind of cultural expression shown by the imaginative and creative faculties. In your personal responses, this position bestows you with an intuitive awareness of social relationships, and the concept of mutual social responsibilities. You will try for justice and fair play in all areas of your life. You may have a desire to challenge the establishment, such as the institution of marriage. You are likely to have an interest in new art forms. On the negative side, the stage is set for a desire for escapism through the abuse of alcohol and drugs.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN 2ND HOUSE–Neptune in the houses indicates how you express your mystical potential, and may reveal some of the karma produced by your past actions. When progressed to the second house, the focus is on money and the use of material resources. Neptune here will influence you to give generously to those less fortunate, and to support humanitarian and spiritual causes. It could give you intuitive insight for making money and material gain, but it will be extremely important for you to use it wisely to “keep up the flow”. During this time, past karma is likely to become evident in your demonstration of that flow. Beware of confusion and delusion and practice scrupulous honesty in all communications behavior. One risk–money may come too easily. Beware of laziness and impracticality. Know from whence these gifts come and keep up the positive flow.
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN LEO WITH NATAL PLUTO IN LEO–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long term.
1939-1957 NEXT POSSIBLE, YEAR 2205–Pluto is also generational, and the personal influences are political. In Leo in both the NATAL and the PROGRESSED Charts, the influences are toward leadership. You could attain a leadership position in some area of your life interest during this life cycle. The struggle may be great to achieve personal fulfillment, but the results will be worth it. This is also a time to watch your health and the natural needs of your body. Avoid undue stress and get proper rest. Avoid alcohol and other drugs, for you are likely to be at risk for addiction. If Pluto is in this position in your Progressed Chart, these influences will be with you throughout the rest of your life,
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN 12TH HOUSE–Pluto in the houses indicates in which areas of life you need to exercise conscious creative willpower to regenerate yourself and your surroundings. When we find it progressed into the twelfth house, the focus is on the subconscious, or unconscious mind, with the need to bring its contents into the conscious realm. You are likely to have profound insight and clairvoyant ability. You will, especially during this progression, have sympathy and empathy for the less fortunate, and will be able to tap into positive psychic forces to help them. However, your extreme sensitivity now to the thoughts and feelings of others leaves you vulnerable to feeling their pain, and you need to exercise restraint in your involvement. You will need seclusion for regenerating your own resources by means of prayer and meditation. You are especially vulnerable to the affects of alcohol and mood-changing substances. Also, avoid negative occult influences.
PROGRESSED PLANETARY ASPECTS:
Following are the interpretations of the Planetary Aspects of the Progressed planets to each other. As in the Natal chart we use only the major aspects: Conjunction, Opposition, Square, Trine, and Sextile. These interpretations may be a little different from the Natal Chart interpretations in describing the influences, as they are presented from the same point of view as transiting planetary aspects. Rather than natal imprints, these aspects represent influences you have to deal with during the time of this Progressed chart. Some of the slower moving planets with aspects in the Natal Chart may still be in orb. However the program allows less than one degree of orb, so that the influences will be strongly focused on the year for which the Progressed Report is prepared. Because of this narrow focus and the tight orb, there are not likely to be very many aspects (if any) in this Report.
PROGRESSED MOON SQUARE MERCURY–This aspect can be unsettling to the nervous system–the mind may become anxious with the emotional influences of the Moon. With this square in the Progressed Chart your concentration and communication can be difficult, and misunderstandings can arise. All mental efforts will be emotionally charged, but you should not hold back communicating them lest they get worse. Do not allow resentments to build up during this time, but don’t avoid dealing with controversy by trying to change your own views to comply with others. Practice honesty in all confrontations during this time.
The following progressed Moon to progressed planet interpretation will last about 2 months and it will occur about 2 months in the future, that is about 2 months after the date given on the cover page of this report.
PROGRESSED MOON TRINE VENUS–This trine is especially favorable for females as it enhances the traditional “feminine” virtues–beauty, affection, gentleness, sympathy and empathy. While it is in the Progressed Chart, it should give you a pleasant disposition and your presence will have a soothing effect on others. It bestows talent, possibly in the performing arts, but almost certainly, talent and good taste in domestic affairs.
The following progressed Moon to progressed planet interpretation will last about 2 months and it will occur about a year in the future, that is about a year after the date given on the cover page of this report.
PROGRESSED SUN SQUARE THE MOON–This Sun aspect illuminates your personal, domestic, and emotional life so that you can observe and understand them better. In the Progressed Chart it will bring out all your subconscious attitudes. Take a long look, and it can be a time of great discovery. Consider your personal life, your domestic situation, and your close family relationships now. You might want to make some changes, as this is a time of new beginnings in your inner life–a sort of personal “new moon”. It is a time for deep inner reflection.
PROGRESSED MOON TRINE SATURN–This aspect in the Progressed Chart gives you patience and reserve strength. You can keep your emotions under control in ways that help you see the true reality of life. You will face your feelings, and may be inclined to spend time by yourself just to evaluate your own development. Things past and familiar will be in your consciousness now, and you will feel secure with whatever has supported you in the past.
PROGRESSED TO NATAL ASPECTS
The Natal Chart is always significant in our lives, and it must be taken into consideration when interpreting any of the advanced charting efforts. The Progressed chart has moved the planets into new positions, sometimes forming new aspects with the fixed positions of your natal planets. Some of the aspects in the Natal chart of the slower moving (outer) planets may still be in aspect orb in the Progressed Chart. These aspects, and any new ones formed, will help to bridge the gap between the Natal and Progressed Charts. Because the program allows less than one degree of orb in order to focus the influences for the year the Progressed Report is prepared, there are not likely to be many planets in aspect–if any. If there are any aspects in orb, their interpretations will provide valuable information about influences you will feel during the duration of this Progressed year.
PROGRESSED SUN SQUARE NATAL NEPTUNE–This aspect in the Progressed Chart can bring a low energy level, both physically and psychologically. If you feel tired and unable to get started, just know that your body needs some time off. Knowing in advance, do not put off things that need to be done today. It is also not a time for projects that require great self-confidence and courage–you just won’t have it now. Avoid deception from yourself and others. On the positive side, the transit could enhance your idealism and produce some beautiful moments. You can work to make it come true, but don’t be discouraged by a gap between your ideals and your reality.
The following progressed Moon to natal planet interpretation will last about 2 months and it will occur about 6 months in the future, that is about 6 months after the date given on the cover page of this report.
PROGRESSED MOON TRINE NATAL VENUS–This trine is especially favorable for females as it enhances the traditional “feminine” virtues–beauty, affection, gentleness, sympathy and empathy. While it is in the Progressed Chart, it should give you a pleasant disposition and your presence will have a soothing effect on others. It bestows talent, possibly in the performing arts, but almost certainly, talent and good taste in domestic affairs.
The following progressed Moon to natal planet interpretation will last about 2 months and it will occur about a year in the future, that is about a year after the date given on the cover page of this report.
PROGRESSED MOON OPPOSITE NATAL NEPTUNE–This aspect in the Progressed Chart heightens the sense perceptions and dream activity. During this progression, you are likely to meet with unusual people. Awareness of the psychic is intensified, and you need to beware of the potential for self-deception, or of deception by others. Protect yourself through positive prayer and meditation against negative occult influences while this aspect lasts.
PROGRESSED MOON TRINE NATAL SATURN–This aspect in the Progressed Chart gives you patience and reserve strength. You can keep your emotions under control in ways that help you see the true reality of life. You will face your feelings, and may be inclined to spend time by yourself just to evaluate your own development. Things past and familiar will be in your consciousness now, and you will feel secure with whatever has supported you in the past.
PROGRESSED MERCURY SEXTILE NATAL SUN–This aspect in the Progressed Chart increases awareness and mental alertness. Your attitude is constructive and plans should work out well. Energy and action is added to the communications activities, and you should have the cooperation of others in achieving whatever goals you are involved with now.
PROGRESSED SATURN CONJUNCT NATAL SATURN–Although subtle and perhaps easily overlooked, a new cycle is beginning for you now. By the time this time period is over, you will have made commitments and have begun to dedicate yourself to particular goals. Choose carefully and wisely and set a course that you want. Some decisions you make now are likely to prove to be more important and lasting in their consequences than you had anticipated.
PROGRESSED PLUTO CONJUNCT NATAL PLUTO–During this time period you are likely to discover things you had not known about your family and ancestors, to gain greater psychological insight into yourself, and to develop a better understanding of the historical roots and unconscious motives of others. Although not obvious, all of these experiences are transforming you into a person who is different from what you were before this time period began.
PROGRESSED PLUTO SEXTILE THE NATAL NORTH NODE–This sextile in the Progressed Chart can give you some power of influence on the accepted social trends, customs, events, and institutions. This could be a powerful influence if you are involved with politics, since it enhances your intuitional awareness of the motivating forces behind these things and how to manipulate the hopes and fears of the groups involved.
PROGRESSED PLUTO SEXTILE THE NATAL ASCENDANT–This aspect gives you strong willpower supplemented by excellent powers of concentration, keen awareness, and clairvoyance. You will have great leadership qualities and naturally receive cooperation from others while this aspect is found in the Progressed Chart. You can raise your level of awareness, as well as that of others. With this aspect in your Progressed Chart, you can have a positive transforming effect on your environment, constantly making new discoveries, initiating new projects, and finding ways to improve on the status quo. Strong regenerative abilities are indicated.
