Profections are an amazing way to get insight into the year ahead. Finding the ruler of your year and tracking transits and progressions to that planet is a is a little-used method that offers huge results. But an even less common technique is profected months.
We’ve talked already about profected years. Each year corresponds to a specific house, with special attention being given to which planet rules that house. The profected house changes every year, and this gives you insight into that year.
With profected months, you get something akin to a mini lunar return. You get a sense of what area of life and planetary energy will be highlighted for that month. To calculate, start with the profected house for the year, and calculate from there. Say your birthday is Feb. 3rd, and you are in a 4th house year. From Feb. 3rd to Mar. 3rd, you are also in a 4th house month. Then, from Mar. 3rd to April 3rd, you are in a 5th house month. This progresses by one house every month until your birthday, when you will calculate from a new profected house.
So how do we interpret this? Well, first, a 5th house month is likely to be more lighthearted and creative than a 4th house month. And if your 5th house is ruled by, say, Venus, you should have a really great time connecting with people and creating beauty! If the 5th house is ruled by Saturn instead, you may dedicate your time to creating tangible art.
While this technique is still relatively uncommon, it is gaining traction. I have personally found it to be every bit as valuable as a lunar return for gaining a sense of the month ahead and house to direct my energy. So the next time you’re looking at the coming months, give profections a try and tell us how it goes!
What profected month are you in? Do you think it applies?
