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.

Although you will most likely feel the urge, this is not the time to tell everyone your opinions. In those relationship with people whom you are used to thinking out loud and speculating with, some sharing of opinions could indeed be beneficial.
But with other people, it might lead to arguments. Your energy at this time will tell you to shoot from the hip against those who disagree with you, so it’s best to be aware of this tendency and put your focus elsewhere.
That focus, however, will tend to be quite scattered. You’ll feel distracted by your phone, the Internet and everything around you, and you’ll feel particularly allergic to giving attention to the details of anything.
Therefore, it’s a good time to expand your focus outward to the bigger things in your life. Like the goals you have for it.
Now’s the moment to look back and come to understand how you arrived at this point in your life, and then, having gotten a clearer picture of the direction that has led you to where you are, project that trajectory forward and see where it is leading you.
Maybe you’ll find that your trajectory needs some adjusting.
