I remember when I was 17, Annalisa was pregnant. I went over to her house and saw the transits written on her wall calendar along with the Moon as it moved through the signs. There were no computer programs back then to calculate this stuff but she had an ephemeris and she drew all the gylphs onto the calendar in her neat script. I wouldn’t pay that kind of attention to transits for a number of years. In fact, she was the astrologer in the family then and I was little sister, living with the man who is now my husband and riding a red motorcycle.
I eventually turned my attention to astrology full time and was obsessive about it, you can imagine. I tracked not only my transits but everyone’s transits until the day came when I quit. I have no idea when that was but it had be at least a dozen years ago.
I surprised myself when I printed out the transits to my natal chart and transferred them to calendar today. I just thought it would be smart and if not, then it will be an experiment. I want to find out if paying attention to the transits to my chart makes it easier for me to navigate. That’s the experiment part and on the smart part, well I just expect things to be very demanding over the next couple years.
I’ve mentioned many times, all the planets in the Cardinal signs hit my chart hard but they also hit the charts of everyone in my family hard as well. I am going to publish my book now. I have no idea what will come of that but whatever comes of it, I think it would be helpful to have a deeper understanding of it and astrology can help me on that front. Sure enough, Pluto will be transiting my natal Mercury so I will have to tap whatever I can.
We sell year-long list of transits that include interpretation for $12. It’s a great way to study. This year, I am going to (re)study with you.
Do you track your transits?
