A client asked me about how and it her chart might provide a timeline of events. What an interesting question.
“…The chart provides a timeline but people are complex rather than linear. There a different kinds of timelines. For example, a person is growing and probably improving, but at the same time they are aging and degrading!”
This gal had a Saturn transit in progress, indicating she was building something. The construction project would be underway for a couple of years. Meanwhile, Mars’ whips around, hotting things up as it goes.
Mars moves much faster than Saturn, so right there a person has two timelines to contend with (or enjoy).
When you consider that each individual has their own array of fixed points, that are transited by a planet in sign that is common to all, it’s mind-boggling. This is true in a broad sense but it may be even more interesting to consider it in terms of a couple or a family, living under one roof.
When I think of this, I realize it’s a wonder that people are able to sync up and stay that way over time. That right there would be a skill.
Next, I think about people who have the expectation that others stay consistent to their expectations. It seems impossible.
This tells me, if you want to get along with anyone over time, you’ve got to allow for such things. You might be on “easy street” while the other person is “taking their lumps”. It’s really easy to lose sight of this.
What do you think of the chart as a timeline?
