There is a theory out there; transits of the planet the rules the chart are always beneficial. This was innovative at the time I heard of it, because I have Capricorn rising. The widely held wisdom at the time was that you were uniformly up a creek when Saturn came ’round.
The basis of the theory is that the individual is naturally attuned to the energy of the chart ruler so they have little problem aligning with it. This makes logical sense but I have never been able to draw a firm conclusion, even though I always benefit from Saturn transits.
D o I benefit because this theory is true? Or is it because I have Saturn strongly placed and well aspected? In other words, if Saturn were trashed in my chart would I still fare as well? What do you think?
Is the chart ruler friendly to the chart… Period?
