What Is A Progressed Chart?

aries zodiacLife is a story unfolding. The Progressed chart is one way to track your personal story. The idea is that a person develops over time. They “progress”.  I was born a Capricorn rising. I have progressed to a Taurus rising. I like it!

Your chart progresses slowly but when a shifts occur, they’re epic. If you’re satisfied with your progressed chart, you’ll be in no hurry for anything to change. If you’re in a jam, it can be excruciating as you can be “stuck” for many years.

I’m pretty happy with my progressed chart at this time. Chart ruler, Venus is in it’s own sign (Libra). I also have Mars in it’s home sign, Scorpio. I have good taste and and I’m effective. This alone goes a long way!  But what’s interesting to note is that I’ve not always been this way. I have developed into this type character over the years. This is my story.

Your progressed Moon changes signs every 2.5 years. The rest of the planets are much slower to move. The Sun, Mercury and Venus change signs every thirty years. In the case of the slower moving planets, many people don’t see them change signs in their entire lifetime!

It’s helpful to consider your progressed chart and also to realize that the people around you are also changing. So often people want to put it back the way it was, but this is not possible. Keeping an eye on progressed charts reminds us, we’re evolving.

What Is A Progressed Chart? — 16 Comments

  1. A progressed aquarius rising feels better and more exciting than my natal rising that’s for sure. I don’t know what to feel about it progressing to pisces in the future. Had years of transit neptune square sun and personal planets.To have the progressed rising going to pisces is just too fishy. But since I can’t skip any steps and go straight to aries…

  2. Dont know much about the progressed chart and how it effects the natal placements or works with current transits but I do keep an eye on my progressed moon from time to time. One thing I guess would have a huge impact would be when the progressed asc/desc switch signs. Have anyone experienced this?

  3. I’ve got progressed Venus in Libra (natally in Leo). It started just a few years ago and will be there until the 2040s! Yay! It’s very happy there.

    Progressed Mars (natally in Leo) has been in Virgo for a long time and will be there through the end of the 2040s. Progressed Mercury (natally in Leo) will be in Virgo for about 6 more years.

    Progressed Ascendant in Gemini (natally in Taurus), Progressed Moon in Aries (natally in Pisces, had my progressed Moon return several years ago).

    Progressed Sun in Leo (natally in Cancer) for almost 3 more years. Leo is a great place for it, it’s been there almost my entire life. But I’m still excited about being a progressed Virgo Sun, just to keep the story moving along. My progressed Sun is probably my favorite progressed planet to track. In 2013-14 it was conjunct natal Mars at 21 degrees Leo, I was truly on fire! In 2017-18 it was conjunct natal South Node at 25 degrees Leo and I became more connected to my roots. In 2018-19 it was conjunct natal Venus at 26 degrees Leo and I brought more art, beauty, and romance into my life. Now it is sextile natal Jupiter, which is at 27 degrees Gemini! I am bringing more abundance into my life.

  4. If someone could answer this question for me, I would greatly appreciate it. When calculating one’s progressions do you use the place of birth, or current residence? Thanks in advance.

  5. Progressed Charts are fascinating and incredibly insightful!

    My Progressed MC is changing signs on the exact day of the infamous 2020 T.Saturn-T.Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.

    I literally laughed when I saw this … there you have it. I would like to say “I guess no surprises there”, but T.Uranus goes direct a day before so the cliche would be very relevant – expect the unexpected.

  6. Do you read a progressed chart as a stand alone or only as it applies to the natal chart, specifically house placement? This question pertains to my progressed new moon coming up in January 2020. As a stand alone chart it falls in the 12th house and the 1st house as applied to my natal chart. Since this is a major aspect, I’m a little confused as to how to interpret it. Thank you for any insights.

    • Welcome, Amy. I read the progressed chart, independently from the natal. To me, it’s like seeing something (a person) from a different perspective. 🙂

  7. Hello- My progressed asc and progressed MC will change signs to Aries and Cap- on the exact same day in February 2020.
    Has anyone here experienced this? Any insights?

    Thank you in advance.

  8. I’ve just reread my Progressed Chart motivated by a current post from Midara re: Black Lilith; I love how tendrils of a story connect as well as evolve or maybe that’s exactly how evolution happens🌀
    Whats totally fascinating me is the Spaciousness of my Progressed Chart compared to my tightly held Scorpio-Capricorn Natal Chart. I know the current climate of the 2020 Saturn Pluto conjunction — I have lived with that signature all my life(natal stellium in Leo). Without discounting that impact, my Progressed Chart inspires me to understand how I’ve been prepared/preparing for this a long time.
    I’m an Aries Rising now; born with Capricorn Rising Like I said, this shift is an expansive can Go sense I so need!
    The additional twist of True Lilith in my Progressed Chart adds character as she conjoins my Aquarius Sun(prodded Scorpio) in 10th and this Chart rocks😻No offense to The Goat!

  9. My progressed venus is sitting at 29° cancer.
    Natal venus 13° gemini.
    Progressed moon right now?
    7° gemini (natal moon 18°cap)
    Any idea what pr. Moon con. Natal venus means?
    Or what pr. Venus in anaretic degree pertains to?
