I got this from a gal in Italy, last night, regarding her Progressed Chart Report:
What a read that was, quite mind blowing and so much fun to read too.
I can’t believe how much information is packed in the progressed chart, not only for understanding oneself better but also for realising how one has evolved and — even — what is to be expected.
I absolutely loved it and it is worth easily more than $15 dollars!!”
This report is exceptional. I should say so more often! And while we tend to see the progressed chart, marking your slow evolution, I’ve continued to develop the ideas I presented last week on this post: Life Story.
Basically, where will you wind up in life? It’s one hell of a question – what if it can be answered? There’s not a lot out there on Progressed charts so let me share some of the points that have come to mind.
You know how mid-life can be stressful but people tend to calm down when they get a bit older? What if this is because their sun progresses into a foreign sign but when they get a bit older, the next foreign sign is compatible with their sun sign by element.
Let’s say you’re a fire sun, a Aries. Your sun progresses into Taurus and you think, YUCK! But eventually, your sun reaches Gemini; it’s a lot easier to deal with for a Fire sun.
I can’t say this is valid but it makes a lot of sense. The time-frame that constitutes, middle age, is variable here but you see what I’m getting at.
This doesn’t mean you can progress your ten-year-old’s chart, forty years and see where he or she will wind up. Well, you sort of can, but people move home. If they move far enough, it changes the houses which can make a big difference.
For example, I have five progressed planets in Scorpio in my 6th. Yes, I can deal with it, but if I were in my home town, they’d be in my 7th and I would prefer that – why? Because I have Libra! I may get in trouble for this but I think this perspective is far more reliable than astro-cartography.
I moved across the country about eight years ago. I was a progressed Aries rising with chart ruler Mars in Scorpio in the 8th house. Boy did I like that. When I moved, I shifted to Taurus rising – can you say, “flaccid”?
Not to diss Taurus rising; my point is that these charts work. I had been in that Mars-y situation for a decade. I had to adjust! I had to lead with Venus which took some doing. It just wasn’t as invigorating.
Knowing what I know now, if I were to move again, I would consider the effect on my Progressed chart, because whatever you’re stuck with, it’s slow to change.
You can get your Progressed Chart Report here.
What do you like or not like about your progressed chart?
Provided you’ve had the experience, do you recall feeling, thumbs up or down, when your sun changed signs?
Have you ever moved and significant distance, and noticed the change, internally?
