They say Transits, Progressions and Solar arcs along with various return charts only provide what’s promised in the natal chart. How do I find out what’s promised in the natal chart? Is not it too vague?
Say on July 7th this year, I have my Venus progressing to my north node while transiting chiron conjunct ’em both and lol all of ’em squaring my natal saturn while I’m having a Saturn return (all aspects, from within a degree to exact). Should I look at the natal chart and the conditions of each of the planets and natal aspects? If it’s a chain reaction then who triggers whom and who provides the outcome?
Untangling this would be a waste of time. You have too many ingredients in your stew up there. You’re approaching this as if your life was an algebraic equation. It is not. Let me simplify it.
“How do I find out what’s promised in the natal chart? Is not it too vague?”
A natal chart is not at all “vague”. It’s precise! You are making it “vague” when you pile on transits, progressions, solar arcs and the kitchen sink…and then try to order these things as if they are dominos.
Example – I have Jupiter aspecting my moon.
This promises that I FEEL GOOD.
It promises that I feel optimistic, that I feel hopeful and confident.
If Mars comes along to mess with my situation, I might assert my good feelings.
I might take a risk because I feel confident.
I might act brashly because I feel that I am good, no matter what. It’s an additive, see?
But the natal promise is still the natal promise.
Now let’s say that Saturn comes along, a planet that is contrary to Jupiter.
This will not rob me of my natal promise.
It might ground my good feelings.
I might start a business because I feel confident.
I might set a lofty goal and work towards it.
Again, Saturn would act as an additive to what I have to start with.
“If it’s a chain reaction then who triggers whom and who provides the outcome?”
You provide the outcome! Planets, charts, progressions, returns, solar arcs and /or transits do not have the power to provide an outcome. That is like looking at paint on a palette and trying to figure out what it’s going to paint itself into.
You’ve got certain things to work with. What will you make of them?
How well do you work with what’s promised in your natal chart?
