Channeling Your Energy
Being Appropriately Assertive
Avoiding Ego Clashes
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
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.

Many activities will start to come to a climax in your life. Your self-awareness will be heightened and your behavior will often feel like it’s driven by unconscious motivations, so make sure to notice your anger and irritations, and then question your attitudes before you act on them.
You may be more argumentative at this time, and you need to learn how to deal with your hostility. Spraying it around will make you many enemies, and holding it in will likey make it manifest as physical illness. But anger can be a great teacher, provided you're attentive enough to see its lessons.
In your work you’ll feel more assertive that usual. Often that can bring you good things, but you must be aware of the thin line between being assertive and trying to dominate. And, with your bosses, you must be aware of the line between being assertive and failing to respect their authority in the workplace.
You will feel a lot of vital energy flowing through you, but sometimes so much that you don’t know what to point it towards. Find a project that can function as a pair of blinkers during this transit. Then the competitive urges you feel at this time can be focused on work and not on ego clashes. Harness your energy and let that project pull you through this conflictual time.
