Public life predicted by Progressed planets in natal top half chart
Its quite late here, but I can't sleep, nursing my grief but unable to actually feel it. Anyway, an idea came to me that required instant validation from you all.
Its a known theory that quadrants or halves of our natal charts depict our proclivity regarding public life (10th house) vs private, inner life (4th house), or self focussed (1st house) vs focussed on others (7th house).
My query is that could it be that an erstwhile private, introvert person begins becoming more public, visible and extrovert as progressed planets move to their upper half of the chart?
I have tested the half baked theory on a sum total of 1 chart - mine. It seemed true enough. Hoping to hear more experiences, concurrences and dissents from you all.
Hi Dear Vesta,
I don’t know where you are going trough but I feel for you! If I understand correct the upper chart is the 10,11,12th houses? I have them natally and I guess also in progressed chart. While I also have to admit I don’t understand the progressed chart a lot. I do have to say that I think you are right about becoming Public or at least deep seated fears and hurts that are surfacing.
I have my sun in Leo, moon Libra and rising in Libra. Deep seated fears are coming up but I’m trying to handle them and go with it. I hope you can find a way to feel better. I’ve had my fair share of grief in life. Slowly go with it like your walking on ice. The balancing may be hard , but you’ll get there. I’m sending you lots of light and love!
take care of yourself.
Your grief speaks to me.
In a rush for work and thought I’d respond with my chart experience and add to your data. ??
Late Cancer rising, Sun, Venus and mercury 4th house, Moon Uranus, Pluto 3rd, Mars and Neptune 5th - all natal.
Progressed: Nothing has risen to top quadrants. It would be 100 years before the sun gets out of 4th house by progression.
By Transit! Uranus and Neptune are up at the top. Pluto will move into 7th in a few years.
Progressed planets move very slowly, especially the outer planets and, so the houses will rarely change for inner planets by more than a house or two during our lifetimes with exception to the p.Moon. If you're looking for what drives changes in personality expression and I'm deliberately saying "expression" because our natal charts are the blue prints, they don't change and neither does our core self. Progressions show how we "express" that blue print in new ways over time. For this reason, progressions are used in predictive work as they can indicate time periods we can expect an evolution of expression either through internal realizations or external catalysts.
The more stark changes in expression are associated with progressed planets changing signs and/or direction i.e. retrograde to direct and vice versa. In particular, the p.Moon which is the fastest planet to move through the various signs/houses, and as it does our emotional expression will alter.
So, if you're feeling like you're becoming more extraverted despite being a natural introvert - I use these terms simplistically because there is more nuance to this. Anyway, if this is the case then I wouldn't be surprised in the 1st instance to hear that your p.Moon has changed signs e.g. from Taurus 8th to Gemini 9th a more social placement. The Moon is exalted in Taurus and 8th house is very private ...which likely spells shifting from a period of private home comforts. The rest of the chart would also play a part.
Pisces to Aries must be some change. ? Agree 7th being limelight.. My mars will move into 4th in a few years. Will be strange to go from deep Scorpion waters to flamboyant Sagg. ?
About pr Moon phase, I never learnt to calculate. Pr Sun is at 18' Pi and Pr Moon is at 20' Tau. How can I learn to calculate it?
