INTRODUCTION: PROGRESSED CHART
Your Personality Profile is revealed by the imprints of the planets in your NATAL Chart. The NATAL REPORT is a projection of “Personality Potential” and can be compared to a “Blueprint” of a building that is being planned for construction. At different stages of development while the building is being built, certain additions, deletions and/or other changes may become desirable (or even necessary) and the original blueprint may be modified to accommodate those changes. And so it is with your personality as indicated by your NATAL Chart. During the “building” of your life, your personality is being developed, and the imprints of the personality blueprint are being modified and/or changed, both by your own choices and by circumstances beyond your control.
The progression of the planets as they continue their respective orbits into different signs and houses, and the aspects they form, are beyond our control. But we DO have some control over how we handle these new influences, and how we let them affect our personality. In order to deal with these influences, it certainly would help for us to know WHAT these influences are, and WHEN we will have to deal with them. The PROGRESSED REPORT provides that information: the WHAT, the WHEN, and (in some reports) the HOW.
Now, for the first time, we have a Progressed Report that not only tells us WHAT, WHEN, and HOW–it also tells us HOW LONG! It locates the signs, the aspects, and the house positions for each of the planets for any given year of your life and tells you how long they will remain in those positions. With each of the interpretations for these progressed planetary positions, we include a brief synopsis of the influences and imprints of its position in your Natal Chart for your comparison.
Many techniques for following the development of man from birth through life have been devised and studied by Astrologers since about the second or third century BC. The technique used in this Report is called “Secondary Progressions”. This system uses the “Day for a Year” process which appears to have been practiced since Ptolemy and Copernicus, and was supported by the German mathematician Johannes Kepler (1571-1630). The system is implemented by choosing a specific birthday. We then count a day for each year of your life, and cast a chart for the “progressed birthday”.
The Progressed chart is the first chart used in Predictive Astrology, for it provides a good preview and overview of what you can expect in the coming year. We feel that the Progressed chart provides the first step toward using Astrology for a better and more fully informed way of living life — AS IT UNFOLDS.
When combined with information obtained from a “FORECAST REPORT”, OR “TRANSIT REPORT”, which interprets the aspects of the transiting planets (where the planets actually WILL be at any given time), we can get an extremely comprehensive body of predictive information for any “progressed year”–and beyond. Check with your personal Astrologer for information concerning these Reports.
YOUR PROGRESSED ASCENDANT
Like the Sun-sign, progressing the chart will change the sign on the cusp of the first house, your Ascendant. It will also bring influences of the new sign into play upon the personality in changing, modifying, and “blending” experiences. Each time a new sign “rises” on the first house, you may feel a little disoriented, especially during the first year or two. This is because different methods, or “styles” of operating in interpersonal and business transactions can vary considerably under the influence of different Rising signs. Since the Ascendant represents the face (the “Mask”) we show the world, others may begin to see us in a different light before we become aware of any changes in ourselves.
Unlike the Sun’s thirty-year cycle, the change cycles of the Ascendant may not be as predictable as the Sun, since the houses may have more, or less, than thirty degrees. Casting the chart for the place of residence instead of the birthplace can also affect the degree of the Ascendant. The exact time of changes from the birth chart Ascendant and from the progressed Rising-signs can be difficult to trace when changes of residence are extreme.
The Rising sign in the Progressed chart determines the signs on the houses, just as it does in the Natal chart. Each time the Ascendant changes, the sign on the cusps of the other eleven houses may change, also. The interpretations of the signs on the houses will give some clues regarding the affairs of each house during the year for which the Progressed chart is cast. These signs on the cusps may not change very much from year to year unless you move your place of residence a significant distance from one geographic location to another.
Your Progressed Ascendant is now at twenty-five degrees of the sign, Libra. The following interpretations are for the current year and place of residence.
PROGRESSED LIBRA RISING WITH NATAL ASCENDANT IN LEO–Leo is ruled by the Sun, the source of heat, energy, and light. It projects powerful influences into the lives of those born when Leo is rising. You appear to others to be dramatic, regal in bearing, and certainly in control of the situation. Leadership seems easy for you and you appear to exude an air of strength, dominance and individuality. Your enthusiasm and energies ARE high, and you may be impatient with those around you who are less inspired and slower than you. You also need to excel in what you do, and you admire others who are strong individuals like yourself. You are very giving and generous, but you expect recognition and appreciation for that which you give. You also expect the same loyalty and generosity to be reciprocated. You often have trouble working with people who are as strong as yourself, for you don’t share the leading role very easily.
With Libra Rising in the PROGRESSED Chart, the focus will be upon balance and fair play with more sensitivity and receptivity. Ambition and goal orientation will probably remain the same, but some new ingredients are added to the recipe for achievement. You will begin to seek the cooperation of others in your professional efforts. Your diplomacy and ability to compromise could lead to success in law and politics. You need companionship during this progression. It will be extremely important for you to find the right kind of intimate relationship, so that you may have the love and harmony you so desperately need. This comes from not always being able to realize your true identity. Balance and harmony are constantly sought, and if not present in most of your life you may become extremely upset. You should avoid the use of alcohol or other drugs to relieve the pain of periods of disharmony in your life, lest they lead to the application of your talents in negative ways.
PROGRESSED SCORPIO ON 2ND HOUSE–Pluto, the planet of power, regeneration and sudden change is ruler of Scorpio. Scorpio indicates a powerful potential for making money when it is found on the progressed second house of finances, money and worth. You are likely to be resourceful and energetic now in accumulating wealth, and to have the ability to transform ordinarily worthless things into something of real value. Aesthetic quality in your possessions will be of extreme importance to you. You are likely to spend money as freely as you make it and to be willing to share what you have with others during this time. However, you are not likely to suffer greatly for lack of finances.
PROGRESSED SAGITTARIUS ON 3RD HOUSE–When this sign is on the progressed third house of communications, thinking mind and travel, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck can broaden the philosophies into many fields. You are likely to be concerned now with religions and the greater social order. You may travel often to new places and communicate with many different kinds of people during this time. This is a common configuration for artists and writers.
PROGRESSED CAPRICORN ON 4TH HOUSE–Saturn, planet of limitations and discipline, is ruler of Capricorn. When this sign is on the cusp of the fourth house of home life and domesticity in the Progressed Chart, you will be influenced to keep your domestic affairs well organized. You will place much of your responsibility in your home, and may do an unusual amount of your outside work there. There will be a constant struggle to get the domestic situation to meet your expectations during this progression.
PROGRESSED PISCES ON 5TH HOUSE–Neptune, planet of dreams, visions and idealism, rules Pisces. On the fifth house of the Progressed Chart, this can make you very idealistic in romance, possibly setting you up for disappointments. You may be overly sentimental and destructively unselfish during this time. However, this configuration can be stimulating and inspirational in the areas of creative expression. You can draw upon hidden resources now for artistic expression, and are likely to develop a unique style.
PROGRESSED ARIES ON 6TH HOUSE–The Mars ruling Aries combination on the sixth house of work, service, and health in the Progressed Chart can indicate powerful drives in those areas of life. You may appear to be actually jet-propelled in all that you do. This position influences originality and leadership in work and service. You can be bossy now to co-workers and impatient with presumed lack of progress, for your expectations are usually too high. You may extend help to those in trouble, but you expect them to recover their own self-sufficiency as a result. Of course there is always the risk of burn-out if efforts are sustained beyond reasonable endurance during this progression. Health problems are likely to be stress-related.
PROGRESSED ARIES ON 7TH HOUSE–Mars, planet of energy, force, and aggressiveness, rules Aries. When progressed to the seventh house of marriage and partnerships, it indicates the need to be first and be the “strong one” in a relationship. You will respect a partner who can assert his/her own personality needs and communicate them to you in a way that your own identity is not threatened. You will need a strong partner, and will have little patience with a “clinging vine” type. Both parties will need to maintain a high activity level in partnership affairs during this time.
PROGRESSED TAURUS ON 8TH HOUSE–This is the house of needs, the primal instinct, and other’s resources. Taurus is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, social activities, and the arts. When this sign is progressed to the eighth house it can encourage you to seek personal adornment because of your great love of beauty and things beautiful. You will want to look your best, and may begin to improve appearances of both your work and home environment. You could receive some unusual source of income now, such as an artistic endowment, residuals, or an inheritance.
PROGRESSED GEMINI ON 9TH HOUSE–Mercury, planet of communications and intellect, rules Gemini, and this sign progressed to the ninth house of philosophy, higher mind, religion, publishing, etc., indicates there may be much activity in these matters. You may like the orderliness of the traditional religions, but your active mind will encourage you to explore many ideas. You will like to discuss philosophy, and may even write and publish works relating to it during this progression.
PROGRESSED CANCER ON 10TH HOUSE–Cancer is ruled by the Moon, giving power over collective emotions. In the Progressed chart, this emotional sign, ruled by this emotional planet on the tenth house of recognition, career, and honors can be very difficult, very rewarding, or both. The extreme sensitivity of this configuration can enhance careers in the arts, writing, and human services. Inspiration, intuition, empathy and understanding can provide rare talents. You will want to share your successes, but any failure, real or imagined, will be devastating.
PROGRESSED VIRGO ON 11TH HOUSE–Mercury rules Virgo on this house of friendship, and your friends are likely to be interesting and intelligent when this position is found in the Progressed Chart. You are likely to make friends through your work or public efforts, and will exchange practical ideas and skills with them. This is a communications configuration and there will be much valuable exchange of inspiration and methodology. You will extend help liberally to friends in need, but you will also quickly utilize skills and practical ideas learned from friends.
PROGRESSED LIBRA ON 12TH HOUSE–Venus rules Libra on your twelfth house, combining art, beauty, sentimentality, fair play, and material desires in your house of hidden matters and the unconscious process. This can be confusing when found in the Progressed chart, to say the least. The subconscious desire for luxury can be the most destructive emotion here, unless you bring it out into the open and recognize it. In fact, that is the key to dealing with unease in matters of the twelfth house–to bring the feelings out into the open.
PROGRESSED SUN IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
The Sun moves forward (counter-clockwise) in the Progressed chart from its Natal position at the approximate rate of one degree for each year of life. This means that the Sun will progress into a different sign by, or before, age thirty. Remember that these Natal Sun-sign influences are with us all our lives in the form of birth imprints. In the Progressed chart, the new Sun-sign will influence, enhance, modify, and/or blend with those in the Natal chart–and so with any subsequent progressed Sun-signs. The influences may be most recognizable during the first year for which a Progressed chart has been cast after the Sun has moved into the next sign. Sometimes there can be events or situations which trigger significant life changes (relocation, graduation, job change, marriage, divorce, new home, etc.). Some of these could vividly high-light the influences of the Sun entering into a different sign.
As you read this report, look back over your life and try to remember if there were any events that could have changed your directions or goals when the Sun entered a new sign. You can count back to 00 degrees from the Sun-Sign degree of this chart to find the year, letting each degree count as one year. Allow about three years on either side of that actual date.
At the end of the thirty years that each new Sun-sign remains in the Progressed charts, the personality will have somewhat absorbed and assimilated the influences of all of these Sun-sign positions–and so with the new progressions to come. As in all Astrology, you have, and have had, free will to make choices. Those choices can be very significant in determining how much effect the Progressed Sun positions have in modifying your Personality Profile. Transiting planetary aspects to the Sun can also help you anticipate new influences and enhance the sense of timing. Hopefully, you will be able to make better life choices based upon an expanded base of information through astrology.
Your Progressed Sun is now in the first year of a 30-year cycle in the sign, Virgo. You are just beginning this life-cycle.
PROGRESSED SUN IN VIRGO WITH NATAL SUN IN GEMINI–There is a dual quality to the NATAL Gemini personality. Variety is the spice of life for you, and you are happiest when you have more than one dominant interest. You enjoy your hands being busy, which they are very capable of doing on their own while your mind and attention can jump around to many things at the same time. You have to work at calmness of mind and body, and the best discipline to achieve this might well begin by trying to keep your hands and feet still–and to eat slowly. It’s no use suggesting that you think slowly, for you are a Gemini. You are, in many ways, an eternal child. Your mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for new experiences. Your attention span can be quite brief, but you grasp ideas quickly and once your initial curiosity has been satisfied, you want to go on to something else. You crave frequent change, and meeting new situations and new people. You may live in your head a great deal (reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around) and you need mental stimulation every bit as much as you need food and drink.
The modifications of the Progressed Sun in the signs Cancer and Leo upon your NATAL Gemini influences has provided you with a well-rounded personality by the time the Sun progresses into Virgo. Cancer would have added emotion and caring, and Leo would have contributed strong leadership qualities and provided activity to the ambition. At the time when most people are looking toward “retirement”, progressed Virgo comes along with its attention to detail and the tendency to work, work, work.
When the Sun moves from Leo into Virgo in the PROGRESSED Chart, its greatest field of illumination is the world of work. It can be a very positive change, as it can provide the order and attention to detail that is sometimes overlooked by the Sun in Leo influences. It can help to bring order out of confusion. The desire for organization, knowledge, and detail are the constant order of the day in this Sun-sign. In Virgo there is not the need for recognition that Leo demands, and it is easier for you to work behind the scenes. It is also easier for you to change your mind and adapt to the conditions. You will not compromise on organizing, analyzing, and planning; but you can adjust more readily to doing the very necessary routine work that most others dislike to do. This attention to detail can overflow into other areas of your activities. Unlike under the influences of the Leo Sun, you are likely to be well organized in your personal habits, especially where they can affect your health. You probably practice “holistic” health habits, since your body is likely to reject artificial foods and medicines. Food can be especially harmful to you when you are angry. You need to avoid getting so involved with the details that you lose sight of the total picture. You also need to remember others in your life. Relationships can be difficult if your expectations are hard to live up to. It is easy for you to develop a kind of tunnel vision and forget the feelings and needs of other people. Keep the bright influences of Leo: lighten up, look ahead, and stop once in a while to smell the roses.
PROGRESSED SUN IN 10TH HOUSE–The Sun “passes through” each house one time each year. Its influence “illuminates” and brings into focus the affairs of the house in which it dwells (or is passing through). In the PROGRESSED Chart, we fix that focus on the house occupied by the Sun on your birthday anniversary for the year the chart is cast. Tenth house position generally indicates persons who are ambitious to attain positions of responsibility, power, and authority. You are likely to be rather dignified during this time and could have a strong will to succeed. During this house position, your desire for honor and recognition will increase, and you will work hard to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve your goals. You are probably a good manager and demand respect. You will also want to set a good example for others. You need to watch out, however, for an excessive love of power and for dictatorial attitudes.
PROGRESSED MOON IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
The close proximity of the Moon to the earth and its rotation around the earth causes it to pass between the earth and each sign of the Zodiac quite rapidly. It averages about thirteen degrees per day–a little less than three days per sign. Under the day-for-a-year progression system, it will take approximately thirty months, two-and-a-half years, for it to complete each life-cycle of the Moon.
The Moon is the only “planet” that could show up more than once in a Progressed chart in the same sign in which it was found in the Natal chart. Although these natal influences “imprint” our personalities and are with us throughout our lifetime, when the Moon appears in the same sign in the Progressed chart, it can give us an opportunity to modify even those natal imprints to some extent. In the delineations for the Progressed Moon-signs, we will include the Natal Moon-sign interpretations.
In mythology the Moon is always female–as the Sun is always male. In most ancient cults and religions, the Moon represents the female force which reflects the male force of the Sun. There were many ancient Lunar holidays and festivals. In modern religion, the date for the Easter holiday is still determined by the Moon’s orbit.
In astrology, “she” dispenses her influences indiscriminately upon male and female alike, though each sex is likely to respond to the influences in somewhat different ways. The Moon-sign influences in the Progressed chart will affect the emotional side of your personality as it was imprinted by the sign the Moon was in at birth and modified by subsequent progressed Moon-sign influences. The intensity of the changes can range from deeply sub-conscious to dramatically emotional.
Your Progressed Moon is now at 26 degrees of an approximate two-and-a-half-year life cycle in the sign, Cancer. You should have, roughly, 05 months left until it moves into the next Moon-sign cycle.
PROGRESSED MOON IN CANCER WITH NATAL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS–Your NATAL Moon in Sagittarius indicates a lofty, idealistic emotional nature. You may aspire to high goals but ignore life’s realities. You are likely to be optimistic and cheerful–and ready to cry at a sharp word or a change of expression. You may appear shy and withdrawn–but still waters run deep. There is nothing shallow about you, and your intellect is sharp and ingenious. You are intuitive to the depth of being psychic in your understanding of what other people may be thinking. But you are probably hesitant to trust and accept the accuracy of these instincts. However, at some time in your life, you are likely to be compelled, through some unusual circumstances, to adopt a different attitude toward these beliefs. Intimate relationships could be difficult for you because you may not be a “touchy-feely” kind of person. You will also require freedom and independence in all your relationships, and your partners may not feel you are committed to them. This may not be an accurate presumption, but you may do nothing to refute it. After all, there are so many more interesting people out there! You may choose a partner who is older or younger than you, or of different ethnic or racial background. You are likely to be somewhat idealistic in your ambition and profession. Your clever mind will adjust to almost any kind of activity, and you can always find a new job if this one doesn’t pan out. You could be successful in your own business and you would enjoy the challenge and variety, but you need to keep the goals realistic and down-to-earth. You may be drawn into a prolonged spiritual search for values you can accept, but then again, you might ignore the whole spiritual thing. Your attitude toward government and politics is likely to be pragmatic, and you may criticize but not vote. You could have difficulty in finding any objectivity in your views of social issues.
When the Moon moves into the sign Cancer in the PROGRESSED Chart, it brings extreme depth and intensity of the emotions. Cancer is a water sign, and a wide range of your emotions can best be expressed by tears. You will have a sensitivity to the moods and feelings of others that can border on the psychic. Your extreme sensitivity to others’ feelings can put you in a position to be emotionally ripped off by those less healthy. You need to choose your friends and associates carefully, trying to keep optimistic, enthusiastic, up-beat people around you as much as possible. Family is important to you and you will become more strongly connected to family pride and tradition during this life cycle. Home is a basic need for you, a safe haven from which most of your interests and activities originate. Romantic relationships will be important to you now. You will be very protective of those you love, and maybe a little bit jealous. It will make you happy to be able to serve, and to give to them freely and often. You will remember birthdays and special occasions and will be driven to acknowledge them. You may become inclined to withdraw and brood. You need time to yourself to release and rest your emotions. Domestic security and marriage are important to your emotional well-being. You will be a good parent, with the exception of a tendency to smother your offspring with love.
PROGRESSED MOON IN 9TH HOUSE–The Moon will pass through all the houses of the Natal Chart approximately every twenty-eight days, making its daily and hourly influences very fleeting. When it is in the ninth house of the Progressed Chart however, it might bring extended travel, legal experiences, or philosophical and religious development–or, perhaps, just mental expansion in these matters. It is a good time to expand your knowledge about metaphysical and spiritual influences.
PROGRESSED SUN-MOON SIGN COMBINATION
As in the Natal Chart, the blend of the Progressed Sun-Moon influences are extremely significant toward understanding the modification of the personality from that which was indicated by the Natal Chart. We urge you to review the interpretation in your Natal Chart. The interpretation of the Progressed Sun-Moon blend is printed next. Study it carefully, in addition to the delineations of Sun in Sign, Sun in House, Moon in Sign, and Moon in House. We suggest that you compare them also with the same interpretations in your Natal Chart.
PROGRESSED: VIRGO SUN AND CANCER MOON–These two signs are in sextile, and the Moon “Rules” Cancer. This makes the Moon’s influence quite strong in this configuration in the Progressed chart, indicating that your emotions will have a strong impact upon the Self. The reserved nature of the Virgo Sun gains much in emotional warmth. You are likely to try to emulate the conventional code of behavior during this life cycle, and you could express the thrust of your personality with a combination of shyness and charm. However, security needs can add determination to the method of expression now, and self-justification could become an art form. Personal fastidiousness and health can become overly sensitive subjects of concern. You can show frustration and temper during work situations which do not normally require an emotional involvement, but you can be good in businesses that involve caring and service to people. You tend to be overly concerned about family during this progression, and you need to watch out for tendencies to be too fussy and moody for comfort.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
Mercury in the signs gives clues to the kinds of concerns that occupy your mind and reveals your psychological approach to making decisions and conveying your ideas to others. Mercury influences the kind of communications you have with other people throughout the year: those received as well as those you send. It indicates shifts in mental focus and intellectual attention as they are impacted by the influences of the Progressed sign. It can also indicate travel, such as short trips which don’t upset the daily routine too much. You can usually count on not being bored by Mercury influences, and the daily routine is more likely to be intensified rather than subdued. On another level, Mercury IS the every day routine, indicating everything we are so accustomed to that we don’t even notice it. On still another level, it may indicate a time when you should just sit and think.
Mercury takes a little less than thirty years to progress through the thirty degrees of each sign, so we may have a little “stretch” or a little “overlap” of influences when using the day-for-a-year progression system. We have tried to adjust the degree of Mercury in its current Progressed sign to give you some rough idea of how long it will be until it enters the next Progressed sign.
Your Progressed Mercury is now in the 13th degree of an approximate thirty-year life-cycle in the sign, Leo. You could have, roughly, 18 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN LEO WITH NATAL MERCURY IN CANCER–With Mercury in the sign Cancer in the NATAL Chart, Your mind will be imprinted with deep-seated emotional patterns. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to you. You are empathetic and you are a sensitive listener. You are truly interested in the feelings and inner lives of others. In addition to psychology, you are drawn to all forms of education: art, poetry, music, and/or mythology. You probably kept a diary or personal journal, and you enjoy reading the chronicles of others’ lives and personal development. You are extremely sensitive and may have a tendency to believe that every unpleasant thing that is said or done is directed toward you, personally. Consequently, you can be overly influenced by the attitudes and opinions of others. This can cause many disturbances in love, romance and personal relationships, for you will need to cultivate understanding and trust. The message here is to think for yourself and practice getting YOU out of the center of the universe. Seek spiritual guidance, and constantly practice bringing the subconscious out into conscious thinking.
When Mercury moves into Leo in the PROGRESSED Chart, it brings to you a strong will and a fixed purpose. While it is in this sign, you may have a dramatic and forceful manner of speech, and you could be regarded by others as an authority on anything you address. You will have a mental self-confidence which is a positive asset when solving problems: just try not to hog the limelight! You are able to see a continuity in planning and purpose now, which can give you executive and administrative ability. The leadership role comes naturally, and you are likely to excel in you education and training for a career. These Leo influences can enhance the positive imprints from Cancer to provide enormous power to fulfill the ambition. You should be able to successfully achieve whatever goals you may set for your self. Artistic pursuits such as entertainment and art galleries are likely to be high on your interest agenda. Both business and personal relationships should be exciting and fulfilling. However, you do need to beware of tendencies to mental pride and arrogance during this progression. Learn to lighten up and allow the rest of the world to follow.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN 10TH HOUSE–Mercury in the houses deals with the practical affairs that occupy your mind, and shows what areas of activity will be influenced by your thoughts and communications. In the tenth house of the Progressed chart it indicates that you are likely to pursue advanced education for reasons of professional interests or ambition. You are likely to refine your good organizational ability and the capacity to plan for the future. Your career or interests are not likely to be accidental. During this time, you are able to communicate with people of power and prestige–and with the public, so that politics or public relations could be natural for you. Whatever your activities or occupation, it will involve communications media and travel. Ambition is the keyword in this position, but beware that it could take precedence over principles.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
Venus in the signs indicates how you express your emotions in personal relationships. It also influences your attitudes toward money, personal possessions, creature comforts, and social and aesthetic values. Venus is a social planet, usually bringing people together for parties and good times. It is also the planet of LOVE, and its impressions combined with the influences of the signs can tell you quite a bit about your experiences in love and romance. It is also the planet of creativity: of artistic talent and entertainment. The influences of the different signs of the Zodiac can help to dictate the forms of expression indicated to display these talents.
The annual orbit of Venus is usually only five or six days away from the orbiting time of the Sun, so it fits the day-for-a-year progression system quite well. Though there may be a very little stretch or overlap, we are pretty safe in estimating a degree of progression per year for Venus, as with the Sun.
Your Progressed Venus is now in the 16th degree of an approximate thirty year life-cycle in the sign, Libra. You have, roughly, 15 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN LIBRA WITH NATAL VENUS IN CANCER–When Venus is in the sign Cancer in the NATAL Chart, it imprints deep sensitivity in all your romantic feelings. You are likely to be extremely emotional and your feelings easily hurt. You tend to personalize and to react emotionally to anything that you perceive as criticism. Your moods will be fluctuating and unpredictable, but you are likely to hide behind a dignified exterior. You are very intuitive, and can usually pick up on the feelings of others. Because of that influence you need to associate with persons who are optimistic, enthusiastic and upbeat. Venus in Cancer also produces the mothers of the world, both male and female. You are sensitive and sentimental, and are deeply attached to family, old friends, familiar places, and the past. Remembering birthdays, anniversaries, family rituals, and other days of personal significance is very important to you. A good personal relationship, especially if it is a marriage, is extremely important to you. You will make every effort to make your relationships work. You seek caring, emotional support, and security in love. You cherish and protect your loved ones, and can be extremely possessive of them. You need to be needed. You crave both financial and emotional security, and are likely to seek them in marriage. You want your home to be the center of social activities and you will strive to provide it with comfort and beauty. You need to watch out for unstable emotional reactions, maudlin sentimentality, and the tendency to sulk.
Venus in the Leo life cycle would have added action and enthusiasm and, possibly some jealousy to relationships. The progression of Venus through Virgo would have contributed some pickiness and selfishness to the relationships.
When Venus moves into Libra in the PROGRESSED Chart, harmonious relationships will become extremely important to you, especially in marriage. You will be attracted to the opposite sex, and will develop some ability to understand the feelings of others. Your aesthetic perceptions will be highly developed, and you are likely to have more than an aptitude for some form of art–possibly music. You will have a strong desire to please and to understand your love partner. Because you value harmony so much, you may compromise a great deal to avoid discord and conflict. In all your personal relationships you will strive for balance and equality during this life cycle. In love, you will want an intellectual peer, an equal, and a friend. You will appreciate good manners and refinement, and you will not be happy with a coarse, blunt type of person. You will not want to dwell on controversial or emotionally difficult subjects. You may try to ignore them and hope they will just go away. This doesn’t usually work, and you will need to become more aware that the world and other people are not always fair and just. Learn that taking appropriate action in time usually keeps things from getting to big to handle.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN 12TH HOUSE–Venus in the houses indicates how you may express yourself socially, romantically, and artistically in the various areas of your life. When Progressed into the twelfth house, it can demand a high degree of selflessness in love, or self-denial in love relationships. Difficult psychological feelings may result from unresolved relationship problems coming to the surface at this time. You may feel the need to care for someone else, even without experiencing reciprocity. However, beware of showing feelings of martyrdom as this could defeat any positive outcome of your efforts. If there should be little success and gratification from the relationship, there will be spiritual rewards and satisfaction from knowing that you have done all that you could.
PROGRESSED MARS IN SIGN AND HOUSE POSITION
Mars is energy and action. “His” influences provide means of expression for the influences of the other planets through direct action. It can express temperament, set fire to the emotions, activate ambition, spur romance on, and sometimes set the stage for accidents. In mythology, Mars is the God of War.
It takes Mars an average of about twenty-two months to progress into a new sign, depending upon Retrograde movement, etc. Therefore it will be difficult to establish an accurate time frame for the duration of the Progressed Mars influences. We use two years as an approximation, but the length of time left in each sign cannot be very accurate. However, each time you have a Progressed chart cast, the position of Mars for that year will be accurate.
Mars is now at 10 degrees of the sign, Libra. It takes approximately 60 years for Mars to pass through one sign in the Progressed chart. You have, roughly, 42 years left until it moves into the next Mars life-cycle.
PROGRESSED MARS IN LIBRA WITH NATAL MARS IN LEO–Mars in Leo in the NATAL Chart makes the personality feel free, fearless, independent, enterprising, honest, and very conscientious. You are capable of rising to positions of responsibility, trust, authority, and control. Your ambition is likely to take you into public service where you certainly can become a leader. You are also likely to have some musical talent. You are warm-hearted and sociable; ardent in affection, love, and pleasure, but often hasty and impulsive in love and too unrestrained in the emotions and passions.
When Mars moves into Libra in the PROGRESSED Chart, it gives the personality a strong urge to action in the social services, and you are likely to be the initiator of social activity and reform. Your career preference is probably in the helping category, but you will need to be noticed and appreciated during this aspect. You have a strong sense of justice, even when you are not the victim. You have a tendency to be strict about social conduct, with the attitude that the game should be played according to the established rules. You have a strong will, and there could be difficulties in partnerships over arguments and conflicts of will while this aspect is in the Progressed Chart.
PROGRESSED MARS IN 12TH HOUSE–Mars in the houses indicates the departments of life in which you express your actions and desires. It shows where you need to exert energy and initiative in order to produce results. When progressed to the twelfth house, it indicates that desires and actions will be strongly influenced by the subconscious mind. You may wish to carry on work and other activities in secret or in seclusion. During this period, you are likely to be secretive about your desires and purposes. You could even have secret sexual involvements, since Mars rules sexual energies. You need to practice communications with your subconscious and open these secret influences to the light of your conscious mind and understanding. Spiritual guidance is indicated during this period.
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS:
The rest of the planets take much longer to orbit through the signs and houses. Unless they were in the last few degrees of the Natal sign, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are probably still in the signs and houses they were in when you were born. If any of them have progressed into the next sign, the program will print the influences of the new sign as it compares to the old. It will only interpret the progressed house position. A major move in geographic location which changes the Ascendant may also change the house cusps and the signs on the houses.
PROGRESSED JUPITER IN LIBRA WITH NATAL JUPITER IN LIBRA–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long-term.
Jupiter in the signs influences your ethical, religious, and philosophic standards and beliefs, and how you may express those interests. In the sign Libra in the NATAL Chart, Jupiter imprints the personality with a strong concern for justice and with high moral principles in marriage, partnership, and close personal relationships. You are likely to look for a partner whose views in these areas correspond with yours. You will feel a need for a solid domestic base to provide a foundation for the freedom you need to express your own beliefs and to influence improvements in the social order. You may need to watch for a tendency to make moral judgments and decisions for others. You may also see a tendency of others to show jealousy toward you, especially if you get involved in too many personal relationships at once.
PROGRESSED JUPITER IN 12TH HOUSE–Jupiter in the houses indicates the departments of life and the types of activity through which you express your philosophical, educational and religious ideas. This is a time, when it is progressed into your twelfth house, that your ego demands are not so strong. You are able to feel direct empathy for others and genuinely want to help. You can also learn much about yourself now without the usual resistance toward facing those hidden areas which you like the least. There is a great capacity for spiritual growth at the unconscious level. You may find a new spiritual teacher during this time, and you may play the teacher role for someone else. It is a good time to seek mystical knowledge which is usually hidden in the subconscious.
PROGRESSED SATURN IN LEO WITH NATAL SATURN IN CANCER–Saturn in the signs indicates the areas in which you must accept responsibility and the ways in which you must practice discipline and develop maturity. In the sign Cancer in the NATAL Chart, Saturn can imprint the personality with moodiness and dissatisfied feelings. You may have difficulty in expressing emotion, and, when you are hurting, you are likely to withdraw into a shell. You need much approval and emotional support, but may cover up those needs by presenting a cold, austere demeanor. You will not like any kind of criticism. You need to practice discipline with your emotions, and develop trust in others. Call upon positive psychic sources to help you develop your highest qualities.
With in Leo in the PROGRESSED Chart, the Saturn qualities are likely to be distorted by egotism and your desire for power. Desire for leadership will be strong. During this life cycle, you are likely to have a compulsive drive for personal control and a great need for recognition and self-importance. You will need to practice all the discipline Saturn can bestow now in order to develop a proper set of values in dealing with love, romance, children, and self-expression. In your profession, you are likely to attain positions of power and leadership. Be satisfied with that, and remember, there is a Power greater than ourselves. These Saturn in Leo influences will probably be with you for most of your lifetime.
PROGRESSED SATURN IN 10TH HOUSE–Saturn in the houses indicates the areas of life in which we must learn to act with discipline and to express practical ambition through maturity. In the tenth house of the Progressed Chart, strong career ambitions and the drive for status through your profession is paramount. Moral integrity and hard work is likely to help you achieve your desires, but avoid any tendency to compromise principles for the sake of ambition during this time. This position is sensitive to karmic laws and violating principles could result in heavy karmic penalties. These same laws, through positive application, can provide all you need to succeed, but success is not yours alone. You must fulfill your responsibility to the higher social order. Positive psychic guidance will show you how.
PROGRESSED URANUS IN GEMINI WITH NATAL URANUS IN GEMINI–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long term.
Uranus in the signs indicates the ways in which you express your urge for freedom and individuality, and how you establish your link with the Universal Mind. In Gemini in the NATAL Chart, Uranus imprints the personality with brilliant, original, intuitive minds. You may find it difficult to follow an idea through to completion because of extreme mental restlessness. You need mental freedom for new ways of thinking. You also need to exert self-discipline and concentration. You are likely to break with habitual living patterns, maybe often, but you need to practice acceptance of other’s ways of living.
PROGRESSED URANUS IN 8TH HOUSE–Uranus in the houses indicates the manner in which you express your intuitive faculties and occult interests. It highlights the lasting qualities of spiritual values as compared to the material. In the eighth house of the Progressed Chart, the focus will be on the mysteries of life beyond, and there could be an increased interest in the occult. In the material world, you could have sudden changes in fortune through marriage, inheritance, business partnerships, insurance, taxes, and corporate finances. You may need to exercise emotional detachment toward the material things. You may feel strong psychological changes taking place in your subconscious regarding your attitudes about material things, as well as in your personal attitudes about relationships and sex. What the Universe is trying to tell you now is that there is a new era about to begin in your life.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN LIBRA WITH NATAL NEPTUNE IN LIBRA–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long term.
LAST TIME IN LIBRA IN 1957-NEXT POSSIBLE IN YEAR 2120–Neptune in the signs manifests more historical and generational influences than personal. In Libra in the NATAL Chart, it indicates the kind of cultural expression shown by the imaginative and creative faculties. In your personal responses, this position bestows you with an intuitive awareness of social relationships, and the concept of mutual social responsibilities. You will try for justice and fair play in all areas of your life. You may have a desire to challenge the establishment, such as the institution of marriage. You are likely to have an interest in new art forms. On the negative side, the stage is set for a desire for escapism through the abuse of alcohol and drugs.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN 12TH HOUSE–Neptune’s position in the houses indicates the way you express your mystical potential and how you use your ability to visualize. It also indicates what areas of your life could be affected by premonitions, dreams, clairvoyance, and deeper intuitive insights. When it is progressed into the twelfth house, there is an intuitive link with your subconscious mind. You have a need for periods of privacy and seclusion to get in touch with positive communications and inner spiritual search. You may be a natural psychologist, and are likely to be extremely sensitive to poetry, music and art. You need to be alert to negative psychic influences during this time, and avoid dwelling on problems of the past. Excessive use of alcohol or other drugs could short-circuit this spiritual gift, and distort it in a dangerously negative way.
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN LEO WITH NATAL PLUTO IN LEO–When the planet is in the same sign in both the NATAL and PROGRESSED charts the influences are the same, but are just more long term.
1939-1957 NEXT POSSIBLE, YEAR 2205–Pluto is also generational, and the personal influences are political and regenerational. In Leo in both the NATAL and the PROGRESSED Charts, the influences are toward leadership. You could attain a leadership position in some area of your life interest during this life cycle. The struggle may be great to achieve personal fulfillment, but the results will be worth it. This is also a time to watch your health and the natural needs of your body. Avoid undue stress and get proper rest. Avoid alcohol and other drugs, for you are likely to be at risk for addiction. If Pluto is in this position in your Progressed Chart, these influences will be with you throughout the rest of your life,
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN 10TH HOUSE–The house position of Pluto shows in which departments of life you need to exercise conscious creative will power to regenerate yourself and (possibly) your surroundings. In the tenth house of the Progressed Chart, it enhances a highly developed willpower and strong drive to succeed. You are good at dealing with those in power now, and can be adept in forcing reform in existing power structures. You are likely to be involved with the public–possibly politics. You may feel alienated from others because of your awesome responsibilities. You need to watch out for dictatorial tendencies and selfish ambitions during this progression.
PROGRESSED PLANETARY ASPECTS:
Following are the interpretations of the Planetary Aspects of the Progressed planets to each other. As in the Natal chart we use only the major aspects: Conjunction, Opposition, Square, Trine, and Sextile. These interpretations may be a little different from the Natal Chart interps in describing the influences, as they are presented from the same point of view as transiting planetary aspects. Rather than natal imprints, these aspects represent influences you have to deal with during the time of this Progressed chart. Some of the slower moving planets with aspects in the Natal Chart may still be in orb. However the program allows less than one degree of orb, so that the influences will be strongly focused on the year for which the Progressed Report is prepared. Because of this narrow focus and the tight orb, there are not likely to be very many aspects (if any) in this Report.
PROGRESSED MOON SQUARE THE ASCENDANT–This aspect in the Progressed Chart can produce strong emotions and moods, especially when dealing with others. You can feel and respond to their moods immediately, but you may also be too wrapped up in your own moods to be objective. Do not take your emotions too seriously at this time. Tasks which require reason and clear thinking should be approached very carefully while this progression is in the chart. Avoid impulsive actions, and seek spiritual guidance and grounding.
The following progressed Moon to progressed planet interpretation will last about 2 months and it will occur about 6 months in the future, that is about 6 months after the date given on the cover page of this report.
PROGRESSED MOON CONJUNCT SATURN–In this conjunction, the Moon’s emotions come under the discipline of Saturn. This should not be all bad, for certainly emotions often need discipline. You may feel somber with this aspect in the Progressed Chart, and feel that you are tied to past memories. There could be a tendency towards depression, since emotions do not take to discipline easily. The key here is to not allow yourself to dwell in the past. Cultivate healthy emotional friendships and direct your attention away from self toward constructive goals and activities. This aspect in the Progressed Chart can best be interpreted as developmental “calls to action”, which occur about every six-and-a-half to seven years. It highlights the “architecture of advance”, or the emotional growth and maturation of the psyche. It heightens the focus on achievement and ambition and forces an assessment of progress toward goals, especially in the psychological areas of your life. If you try to ignore these influences, the tensions are likely to appear disruptive, seeking outlet in other dimensions and areas.
The following progressed Moon to progressed planet interpretation will last about 2 months and it will occur about a year in the future, that is about a year after the date given on the cover page of this report.
PROGRESSED MOON SEXTILE MARS–This sextile in the Progressed chart brings you an abundance of emotional force and the energy to use it. It provides strong incentives for profitable enterprises, especially when they are in the general areas of providing homes for family and others. You are very protective of family and domestic interests at this time.
PROGRESSED MOON SEXTILE NEPTUNE–This aspect provides strong psychic potentials. When it is in your Progressed Chart, you are likely to be intuitively in tune with the occult, and transcendental communications will come easily to you. Your memory of the distant and karmic past is extensive, and you may learn to bring it up to your present consciousness at will. Your intuition will help you in decision making during this time, especially where financial matters are concerned. You will be much in tune with family matters and needs. Your imagination is expansive, and you are likely to become involved with group(s) in practicing positive occult activities.
PROGRESSED MERCURY CONJUNCT PLUTO–This aspect combines strong willpower with great resourcefulness and helps you get to the bottom of what you wish to understand. While it is in the Progressed Chart, you are able to see through others and to ferret out secrets. You are likely to see things as they really are and to accept truth even when it is uncomfortable. During this progression, you could have a definite interest in the occult, with the wish to study and communicate these forces. Watch out for tendencies to want to remake others’ thoughts and mental perceptions.
PROGRESSED TO NATAL ASPECTS
The Natal Chart is always significant in our lives, and it must be taken into consideration when interpreting any of the advanced charting efforts. The Progressed chart has moved the planets into new positions, sometimes forming new aspects with the fixed positions of your natal planets. Some of the aspects in the Natal chart of the slower moving (outer) planets may still be in aspect orb in the Progressed Chart. These aspects, and any new ones formed, will help to bridge the gap between the Natal and Progressed Charts. Because the program allows less than one degree of orb in order to focus the influences for the year the Progressed Report is prepared, there are not likely to be many planets in aspect–if any. If there are any aspects in orb, their interpretations will provide valuable information about influences you will feel during the duration of this Progressed year.
PROGRESSED SUN CONJUNCT THE NATAL ASCENDANT–This conjunction in the Natal chart usually indicates a strong body and strong constitution, giving you energy and good health and marvelous recuperative powers. In the Progressed chart it indicates that your actions are in tune with the solar source of life. You can have tremendous spiritual influence for good, since you are much in tune with the consciousness of the past, future, and the Eternal Now. This is a powerful aspect for personal growth, and for advancing your karma.
PROGRESSED MOON CONJUNCT NATAL VENUS–This aspect bestows intense artistic ability, giving you a highly emotional response to beauty and harmony. While it is in the Progressed Chart, it will enhance your taste in clothing and food. You appreciate a beautiful environment and will create that for yourself. You have charm when dealing with others, and you are likely to find much success in romance during this time. You need to watch for a tendency to be self-indulgent, and beware that others can take advantage of you through your extreme sensitivity to their feelings now.

PROGRESSED MOON CONJUNCT NATAL PLUTO–This is a strong aspect, providing intense feelings and combining a powerful will where emotions are concerned.

Avoid impulsiveness, and practice positive prayer and meditation.
