1. What happens when a planet changes signs, but doesn’t change houses? Example: My ascendant is 11 Virgo. Saturn entered Virgo, but is only in the first degrees. So, Saturn is in my 12th house still. But Saturn is in the sign of my ascendant.
The planet is transiting the house it is transiting, period. So in the example you offer, Saturn is transiting your 12th house. It doesn’t matter what sign is on the ascendant.
When it crosses your ascendant, it will be transiting your 1st house.
2. So, when do we feel a shift? When it enters the sign or when it transits over the actual degrees?
I feel a shift when a planet changes signs. I also see indications everywhere I look; in the news and in the lives of the people around me.
I notice when a planet changes houses in my own chart. I see my life progressing. Life unfolds and advances.
3. And how many degrees does an aspect last?
This depends on your sensitivity. You can compare it to nature. The seasons come in one after another no matter what we do. There’s a transition.
If you are the type to see the first autumn leaf fall, then you see these changes early. If you are the type to wait until you’re up to your hips in snow before you break out your winter clothes, well that’s another way to be.
Neither way is preferable that I can see.
Anyone else with an opinion?
