Transit Aspects

Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation

Sun Transits

The Sun is the source of all energies. These energies stimulate the activities of the houses occupied by the transiting Sun and reinforce or weaken the planetary effects, depending on the Sun's aspect to the natal planet. When the Sun transits an inner planet, it may trigger a dormant aspect between that inner planet and a slower moving outer planet. If a planet is being transited by another planet when it is being transited by the Sun, the effect of the transit is strengthened.

Sun Opposition Natal Mars

As the Sun opposes your natal Mars, you will experience a period of heightened self-awareness and the culmination of various activities in your life. It is important to be mindful of your behavior during this time, as it may be influenced by unconscious motivations. Take the opportunity to observe any anger or irritations that arise within you, and question the underlying attitudes that may be fueling them.

It is possible that you may become more argumentative during this transit, driven by a need to express your frustrations. However, it is essential to learn how to effectively deal with your hostility in order to prevent it from manifesting as illness or negative encounters. This period offers you a chance to explore healthy outlets for your energy and seek constructive solutions to conflicts.

Consider reflecting upon the deeper meaning behind your anger and explore ways to channel it into productive endeavors. Engaging in physical activities or creative pursuits can provide an outlet for your intense energy and help you avoid unnecessary confrontations. By harnessing this energy positively, you can transform it into a driving force that propels you toward personal growth and accomplishment.

Take this time to explore the roots of your aggression, asking yourself what lies beneath it and what triggers it. By understanding the unconscious motivations that drive your behavior, you can gain greater insight into yourself and your relationships. This self-reflection will enable you to cultivate more harmonious interactions and create a healthier approach to expressing your desires and assertiveness.
