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.

During this transit you’ll find yourself full of energy and with an action-oriented focus. You’ll meet some obstacles on your path, but you’ll feel like you're able to blast right through them. And usually you'll be right.
But as the ego is over-active at this time, watch out its delusional thinking. After overcoming a few obstacles it’ll begin to tell you that you’re invincible, that nothing can stop you.
But, of course, we’re limited by what we can achieve in the world by our skills and our knowledge, things which the ego has no interest in. So as you strive forward with the action energy of this transit, take some time to consider what you can do to better equip yourself for action in the future.
What knowledge could you take in? What skills could you master? Improve yourself for the long term and you’ll always as full of energy as you are during this transit.
This can also be a time when other people’s behavior can make you feel uncomfortable. You likely experience problems with authority figures in your life, and feel they are challenging your autonomy. As a result, you may suffer a crisis of confidence, and then act over-confident to compensate.
But ask yourself, which is causing me more suffering: their actions or my reactions? It’s easy to point fingers at others, but ultimately all you can control in this world is your reaction to the world. As Sartre said, freedom is what you do to what’s being done to you.
How other people act shouldn’t dictate how you feel.
