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 twenty-four degrees of the sign, Leo. The following interpretations are for the current year and place of residence.
PROGRESSED LEO RISING WITH NATAL ASCENDANT IN CANCER--Since the person with Cancer rising is ruled by emotions, the moody, changeable quality of this rising sign is apparent to everyone around. When in control of his or her emotions, this native is the most understanding, sensitive person you could hope to find--and, if not in control, the most miserable. To others you appear gentle and soft, but you can act rather reserved with them until you know them well and feel it is safe to be open with them. You have a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and are deeply attached to the past: your heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moving away from what is known and safe can be very painful and difficult for you. You tend to hold on to people and memories, as well as possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to you. Others see you as extremely caring. It makes no difference whether you are male or female, you are the Earth Mother. You ARE caring and nurturing. If you lack children of your own, you will find surrogate children or pets on which to bestow your maternal instincts. You are strongly attached to family and family traditions.
When your Ascendant moves into Leo in your PROGRESSED Chart, you may feel that you sparkle brilliantly when the Sun is shining and actually feel subdued when it is hiding. This progression can bring you a fiery personality influenced by leadership, determination and stability. Leo must lead, and you may assume the leadership role subtly and without any sense of abdication on the part of others while this sign is on the Ascendant in your Progressed Chart. You will also feel the need to excel in what you do now, and anytime you feel failure you are likely to be wounded more deeply than you want others to know. When this happens, you will go into hiding, lick your wounds in private, and restore your sense of self-worth in your own way and your own time. Relationships can be exciting during this life cycle, but you will want to them to be on your terms. You could feel devastated when you fail to live up to your expectations--or, to what you think are the expectations of others. When you hide to lick your wounds, you need to be particularly wary of indulging in alcohol or other drugs to help restore your self-esteem. You could find them to be too effective, causing you to disregard more positive and healthy measures. Mood altering chemicals are likely to produce more euphoria for Leo Rising than for others.
PROGRESSED VIRGO ON 2ND HOUSE--Mercury rules Virgo in your progressed second house of money matters. This is the planet of speedy communications and intellect, and Virgo is the sign of detail and organization. You will be very particular in the financial area during this time, and your business activities should be well organized. You will be a good planner, and can work quite well behind the scenes.
PROGRESSED LIBRA ON 3RD HOUSE--Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, art, and material possessions. When progressed into the third house of the thinking mind and communications, it influences an attitude of fair play and justice in all these matters. You are likely to be brutally honest in communications efforts, and you will expect others to be honest with you. You will desire some form of higher education now, and will seek a philosophy you can accept. You will like luxury and travel.
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 SAGITTARIUS ON 5TH HOUSE--Jupiter, the planet of expansion and "good fortune" rules Sagittarius, sign of idealism and thrust. This combination in the Progressed Chart on the fifth house of love and romance, children, and creative expression, magnifies the importance of these areas in your life. You are likely to be "lucky-in-love", spoil your children, and to love sports and speculation during this progression.
PROGRESSED CAPRICORN ON 6TH HOUSE--Saturn, planet of limitations and discipline, rules Capricorn, the sign of conservatism. When it is in the sixth house of work, service, and health in the Progressed Chart, it brings a great depth and seriousness to these areas of life. You will be organized in your work, and when you work, you work hard. You will be disciplined in the services you offer during this time. Health problems could arise, centered around the knees, skin, or stomach.
PROGRESSED AQUARIUS ON 7TH HOUSE--Aquarius, sign of steadfastness and social responsibility, is ruled by Uranus, planet of sudden changes, inventiveness and the unusual. In the seventh house of the Progressed Chart, they indicate the need for individual freedom in partnerships, and possibly an unusual spouse. Close relationship in marriage is likely. Try to avoid being overly idealistic and of setting unrealistic expectations. Relationships can terminate during this time if they do not provide individual freedom and mutual respect.
PROGRESSED PISCES ON 8TH HOUSE--Pisces, an emotional sign, is ruled by Neptune, the psychic planet of hidden meanings. With this sign on the cusp of the eighth house of the Progressed Chart, a reluctance to dwell upon death or dying is indicated. If inheritances are indicated, they are likely to be under unusual conditions. You will be tempted to postpone dealing with insurance, legal matters, and other people's money during this time. You may need to be more assertive in dealing with these areas.
PROGRESSED ARIES ON 9TH HOUSE--Mars, the action planet of fire and energy, rules Aries, sign of new beginnings. When this Cardinal sign is progressed into the ninth house of the higher mind and needs, it can produce the crusader instinct. You are not likely to be limited by traditional religious dogma now, but visionary thought could influence studies into the occult.
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 GEMINI ON 11TH HOUSE--Mercury rules Gemini, sign of the Twins. When progressed into the eleventh house of friends, love received, and goals, it indicates an intellectual duality in group activities. Friends are likely to be intelligent and ingenious now, and very much an intellectual stimulation for you. More than one thing can be going on successfully at the same time.
PROGRESSED CANCER ON 12TH HOUSE--Cancer, emotional sign of the mother, is ruled by the emotional planet Moon. When it is found in the twelfth house of hidden matters and the subconscious process in the Progressed chart, emotions are likely to be very vulnerable. Mysterious feelings from the subconscious can make you want to cry without knowing why. You will need to seek seclusion at times. This configuration can make you very intuitional and psychic when it is in the progressed chart.
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 seventh year of a 30-year cycle in the sign, Sagittarius. You have about 24 years left in this life-cycle.
PROGRESSED SUN IN SAGITTARIUS WITH NATAL SUN IN SCORPIO--Your NATAL Sun in Scorpio provides you with power, a strong will, and intense emotional desires. Your life is likely to be a constant struggle to conquer desire through creative use of the will. In all your endeavors, it is important that you embark upon the proper course from the start, since you will act with all your power. Your perfectionism makes it difficult for you to delegate responsibility, consequently you tend to overwork in order to achieve perfection in all details. Whatever you do, you do it with concentration and enthusiasm. You are extremely strong-willed and tenacious in pursuing your objectives. Fierce pride, courage, and emotional strength are yours in abundance. You tend to be more of a cynic than an idealist. You are secretive, and will demand ultimate loyalty from those in whom you may choose to confide. Your drive for material possessions may change later in life to a more philanthropic attitude, and a spiritual search may turn your philosophy of life completely around.
When the NATAL Sun in Scorpio moves into the PROGRESSED sign of Sagittarius, the higher influences of Scorpio are enhanced and intensified. Idealism will be increased, and a sense of being a part of the whole of humanity will emerge. You will become a more serious thinker, about the well-being of society as well as your own. You will begin to place your spiritual laws and ethics above personality--even to the point of overlooking the personal side of your own life sometimes. You need to continue to nurture the personal ambitions of NATAL Scorpio through this progression, and continue to use its power in constructive ways. As under the Scorpio Sun, your expansive nature may take you to un-dreamed of adventures because of your desire to know, to experience, to try your wings, and to have excitement through exploration. You may travel far and fast, either geographically or in thought--or both. Your creative urge is strong, and you like to have people acknowledge your work and your creative achievements. The PROGRESSED Sagittarius Sun will help you to be a charming and agreeable companion, albeit highly independent.
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 behaviour 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 29 degrees of an approximate two-and-a-half-year life cycle in the sign, Libra. You should have, roughly, 02 months left until it moves into the next Moon-sign cycle.
PROGRESSED MOON IN LIBRA 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 of Libra in the PROGRESSED Chart, it will introduce a strong sensitivity to the attitudes and reactions of others, especially marriage partners and close working partners. There will be a charm, grace, and elegance about your personal appearance and mannerisms with the Moon here. This will be a good life cycle to work on both business and personal relationships, for you will be able to communicate and cooperate with others on an emotional level. Inharmonious relationships can actually have an adverse effect upon your health during this time, for you need the approval of others. Justice and "fair play" in all human activities and relationships will be extremely important to you during this progression of the Moon. You will be inclined to be courteous, gracious, and kind to everyone--and you want the same from them. You can excel in public relations now, and your home is likely to be the gathering place for social activities. You need to watch for excessive dependence upon others for emotional security and learn to stand on your own two feet while the Moon is in this position in the Progressed chart.
PROGRESSED MOON IN THE 3RD 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 the third house of the Progressed Chart however, developments of about five years before will need to gain adjustment. There can be concern, thought, and frequent travel in connection with pending change. All things written, communicated, or surmised through critical evaluation come to the foreground. You probably will be looking ahead toward a new beginning. You will not want to go it alone during this time, and cooperation with others is extremely important.
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: SAGITTARIUS SUN AND LIBRA MOON--These two signs are in sextile with each other. Social activities will provide outlets for expansive ideas. You could have a wanderlust and a craving for new experiences. When this combination is found in the Progressed chart, you have a caring and generous disposition, which can make you vulnerable to being "taken in". Being charitable and helpful can meet your personal ideals perfectly, but you need to develop discrimination in dispensation of your benevolence during this life cycle. You are likely to be happiest in one of the helping professions. This a good combination for a career in the law, but you will need to be careful not to "lay down the law" to others. Practice tuning into the real need of others during this progression. This combination breeds a permanency of purpose and does not encourage tendencies for change.
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 21st degree of an approximate thirty-year life-cycle in the sign, Scorpio. You could have, roughly, 10 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN SCORPIO WITH NATAL MERCURY IN SCORPIO--When a planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED Charts the influences are the same, but are just more long term.
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. In Scorpio it gives you an intuitive mind capable of profound insights. You see things accurately, but not necessarily charitably. You may use sharp language, but you will "call a spade a spade", and will not mince words. 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. Watch out for a preoccupation with sex and a distrust for other people. 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 could become skilled at sculpture, pottery, carpentry, stained glass, or anything that involves doing and making things manually. Biology (and related fields such as medicine) could interest you as well. 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. 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, too.
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 21st degree of an approximate thirty year life-cycle in the sign, Libra. You have, roughly, 10 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN LIBRA WITH NATAL VENUS IN VIRGO--When Venus is in Virgo in the NATAL Chart, you are likely to over-analyze emotions and be very critical of those you love. You may be fastidious about your personal appearance, manners, and hygiene, which could be a cover-up for shyness and feelings of social and sexual inferiority. You may concentrate your efforts in Venus affairs into a primary professional life, in which you are likely to be very successful in accumulating material comforts. You are nurturing by nature and could be very effective in the human services professions. You are quietly devoted and faithful to your loved ones, but you may be timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. You are more comfortable showing love for someone by doing something for them, making something for them, or simply being there for them. This is probably because you underestimate your attractiveness and lovability, and you may doubt your own worthiness to receive love and appreciation. You tend to be very picky about trusting potential partners. You will need to be careful lest you set your standards too high and wind up living alone. Also, beware of the tendencies to OVER-compensate on your part (for feelings of inferiority) by seeking a bohemian lifestyle.
When Venus moves into Libra in the PROGRESSED Chart, harmonious relationships will become extremely important to you, especially in marriage. You will be attracted to the opposite sex, and will develop some ability to understand the feelings of others. Your aesthetic perceptions will be highly developed, and you are likely to have more than an aptitude for some form of art--possibly music. You will have a strong desire to please and to understand your love partner. Because you value harmony so much, you may compromise a great deal to avoid discord and conflict. In all your personal relationships you will strive for balance and equality during this life cycle. In love, you will want an intellectual peer, an equal, and a friend. You will appreciate good manners and refinement, and you will not be happy with a coarse, blunt type of person. You will not want to dwell on controversial or emotionally difficult subjects. You may try to ignore them and hope they will just go away. This doesn't usually work, and you will need to become more aware that the world and other people are not always fair and just. Learn that taking appropriate action in time usually keeps things from getting to big to handle.
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 28 degrees of the sign, Capricorn. It takes approximately 60 years for Mars to pass through one sign in the Progressed chart. You have, roughly, 06 years left until it moves into the next Mars life-cycle.
PROGRESSED MARS IN CAPRICORN WITH NATAL MARS IN CAPRICORN--If Mars is still in the same sign as it was in your NATAL Chart, the following interpretations still apply to the personality. However, the way you handle these influences can still be modified by personal choices and decisions on your part to either enhance them or change them.
When Mars is in Capricorn in the NATAL Chart, it channels great energy into professional ambition for the personality. 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. 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 6TH HOUSE--Mars in the houses indicates the departments of life in which you express your actions and desires. It shows where you need to use your energy and initiative to achieve the best results. In the sixth house of the Progressed chart, it indicates energy and skill expressed through work. You are likely to have extremely good mechanical ability as well as an excellent understanding of how mechanical things work. This includes the mechanics of the human body, for many great surgeons have Mars in the sixth house. If you work for others during this time, it will be extremely necessary for it to be a well-organized, efficient operation. Beware of perfectionism and over-concern for details--also for the tendency to overwork while Mars is in this house in the Progressed chart.
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 VIRGO WITH NATAL JUPITER IN VIRGO--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. In the sign Virgo in the NATAL Chart, Jupiter imprints the personality with a cautious, analytical view of things. You will focus on the materialistic with prudence and discrimination. You will have a passion for details, but may need to practice looking at the broader picture. Honesty and integrity are the foundations of your nature and you will demand cleanliness and order in your activities. Your religious and philosophical interests will find their strongest expression in service to others, but high ideals will not fly unless they have a practical application. Avoid making moral decisions for others and trying to be all things to all people. Don't promise more than you can deliver.
PROGRESSED JUPITER IN 1ST 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. In the first house of the PROGRESSED Chart, it brings you an optimistic, sociable disposition. You can be honest, trustworthy, friendly and benevolent during this time. You tend to focus on the brighter side of life, and are likely to be popular and well liked. You are likely to pursue studies in social, religious, and/or educational fields, and will have the capacity for leadership. You may develop very strong moral and religious convictions, and could become a spiritual leader. You need to watch out for self-indulgence and self-importance, and try not to promise more than you can deliver.
PROGRESSED SATURN IN ARIES WITH NATAL SATURN IN ARIES--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 Aries in the NATAL Chart, Saturn imprints the personality with determination, ambition, and a tremendous drive for success. You may be forced to develop your own resources, and, in so doing, you develop a strong will and strength of character. You will not like opposition and will be prone to anger easily. You will have a tendency to "go it on your own" during this life cycle. There is likely to be jealousy in partnerships, which can also cause difficulties in marriage. You will need to cultivate and practice the discipline of Saturn to counter the impulsiveness of Aries.
PROGRESSED SATURN IN 8TH HOUSE--Saturn in the houses indicates the areas of life in which you must learn to act with discipline. In the eighth house it deals with your partner in the areas of finances, corporate money, insurance, taxes, and inheritance--if applicable. When it is found here in the Progressed Chart, you may be able to profit by using other people's money through skillful and honest management. Marriage can be a financial burden, however. You could suffer losses through alimony settlements. There can be a deep spiritual insight into life's mysteries while Saturn is here. Distressing dreams and psychic experiences could have a disturbing psychological effect during this time, but their purpose is to help you see the changes you have gone through and to help you develop an understanding of where you are going. You need to seek positive spiritual guidance to work through these times.
PROGRESSED URANUS IN VIRGO WITH NATAL URANUS IN VIRGO--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. When Uranus is in Virgo in the NATAL Chart, it imprints the personality with a mind that is subtle, independent, and original. You are quiet, but could be stubborn and curious to the point of eccentricity. You seem to naturally know how things work, and are especially attracted to the occult for your link with the Universal Mind. You can be successful in the fields of health, science, and technology. Beware of erratic health problems, paying special attention to diet and mental control of bodily functions.
PROGRESSED URANUS IN 2ND HOUSE--The house position of Uranus indicates the type of activity through which you express your urge toward freedom and individuality. In the second house of the Progressed Chart, the focus will be on financial affairs and worldly goods. Avoid speculation in unproven schemes, and beware of the possibility of fraud in business associations. You are likely to be ingenious in your approach to vocation now, with unusual talents for making money. Practice rigorous honesty in all business affairs during this progression, and seek direction from positive psychic sources. You can succeed in artistic endeavors and efforts dealing with the occult. Avoid borrowing or lending money now among friends.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN SCORPIO WITH NATAL NEPTUNE 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.
LAST IN SCORPIO IN 1970-NEXT POSSIBLE IN YEAR 2133--Neptune in the signs manifests more historical and generational influences than personal. It indicates the kind of cultural expression shown by the imaginative and creative faculties of mankind over a given period of time. Your personal responses to Neptune in Scorpio in the NATAL Chart are likely to be in sexual areas and psychological areas of escape. Both the influences of the planet Neptune and the sign Scorpio are dual in nature: material and spiritual. It is difficult to function in both levels at the same time, and often at some time in the life, a metamorphosis is experienced when the philosophical and spiritual influences sublimate the materialistic.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN 4TH 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 it progresses into a different house, you have to be careful not to fall prey to mistaken illusions, for anything connected with the affairs of that house may seem to dissolve and pass out of existence in a subtle, most imperceptible manner. In the fourth house the focus is on the domestic scene, and when Neptune moves into that house in the Progressed Chart, your domestic and personal life can undergo many strange and subtle changes. Psychological forces will be changing your inner self quite noticeably, and you may become attracted to spiritual and occult subjects as a direct result of your own experiences. On the positive side, you may begin to create the kind of ideal of what you have always wanted your home life to be, and certainly, you will make your home a more beautiful place. The other side of the position can indicate a source of confusion and difficulty because someone in your home is working against you, and it may be difficult to find out exactly what is going on--for it could just be in your own mind. This can make you less confident and secure, but what is really reflected here are the tremendous inner changes in you. It is a time to seek serious and positive spiritual guidance. Alcohol and drugs could be especially destructive now.
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN VIRGO WITH NATAL PLUTO IN VIRGO--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.
1957-1972. NEXT POSSIBLE, YEAR 2220. Pluto in the signs is also historical and generational, but on the personal level it indicates permanent change. In Virgo in the NATAL Chart, it deals with work, health, and the practical application of technology. You are very organized and picky about details, especially where your work is concerned, and can be very capable of working alone. The areas of sex, drugs, and health are indicated as most likely areas for permanent change in your life. Seek guidance through prayer and meditation, striving to bring the feelings up from the subconscious into the conscious and practice good health maintenance.
When Pluto is still in Virgo in the PROGRESSED chart, the natal influences are enhanced and reinforced. The focus for regeneration is more likely to be outward rather than inward, and you may have more concerns about social and environmental issues. Do not neglect your own regeneration efforts, but keep practicing a healthy lifestyle. If Pluto is in this position in your Progressed chart, these influences will be with you for the rest of your life.
NOT POSSIBLE IN VIRGO--.
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN 2ND HOUSE--The second house focus is on money and material resources. Pluto's presence here in the Progressed Chart indicates that your values will undergo a complete metamorphosis, which will affect both your personal possessions on the material plane and your sense of values on the psychological level. If this should begin with a breakdown phase it could be very upsetting. However, the end result will not be lack of supply. The perception of needs could change now, and the attitude toward property could change completely. Metaphysical and moral values could become more important so that you no longer seek material possessions. This could take several years, but when completed, it is likely to be permanent.
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 interps 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 SUN TRINE SATURN--This can be a "down-to-earth" aspect. When it is found in the Progressed Chart, it can help you get to know yourself through your relationship with, and your effect upon your environment. There is a close relationship between who you are and what you do. You will be highly disciplined and able to channel your energies toward any objective you wish to attain. This is a time to examine your habits, your home situation, your work, and everything else that is important to you--and to determine how they work on a practical level. Don't try to be abstract or intellectual. It is a good time for organizing your life and making an overall plan. It is a good aspect for work which requires discipline and self-control.
PROGRESSED MARS TRINE URANUS--This is a powerfully positive aspect which denotes "sudden action". When it is found in the Progressed Chart, it can lift inspiration potentials to the applied genius level. It is a favorable period for practical efforts and the use of creative methods. Your personal magnetism is high and you will attract the support and cooperation of unusual friends. You should avoid anger and impulsive actions.
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 MARS OPPOSITE THE NATAL ASCENDANT--This aspect in the Progressed Chart creates aggressiveness in dealing with the public, and with partners. Relationships can be emotionally packed with conflict from strong desires--usually unrecognized. There will be impatience in dealing with others.
PROGRESSED MARS SQUARE THE NATAL NORTH NODE--This configuration can set you up to express aggressive tendencies at the wrong times. When it is in the Progressed Chart, you are likely to find it difficult to contain your actions and impulses within the current social standards. You need to practice patience and harmony with those around you.
PROGRESSED MARS TRINE NATAL URANUS--This is a powerfully positive aspect which denotes "sudden action". When it is found in the Progressed Chart, it can lift inspiration potentials to the applied genius level. It is a favorable period for practical efforts and the use of creative methods. Your personal magnetism is high and you will attract the support and cooperation of unusual friends. You should avoid anger and impulsive actions.
PROGRESSED URANUS SEXTILE THE NATAL ASCENDANT--This configuration in the Progressed Chart is likely to give you tremendous intuitive insight and a considerable measure of clairvoyance. You have a bright personality, strong willpower, and get along well with others. You are a good leader, inspiring enthusiasm and cooperation from others.
