The Progressed Sun in Aspect
Since the Sun represents our basic personality and core identity, the aspects that the progressed Sun make are significant. Interpretations are samples from the Day Watch report package, which can be ordered by clicking on the link, unless otherwise noted.
Progressed Sun conjunct Ascendant You’re pulling out of a long period of self-imposed obscurity, only you probably never thought of it that way. This is literally a year of personal sunrise when you can put your best foot forward with every step. Why be shy when you can be right in their faces, strutting your stuff? Don’t hesitate, propel yourself.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Ascendant Anything you do is likely to make you look good, especially when you let your purposes and intentions be fully clear. The less you hide your talents, the more appreciated you will be, and you won’t have to overexert yourself to get there. Just go with your own flow, and the glow will be self-evident to everyone.
Progressed Sun square or opposition Ascendant You’re going into a new phase of life that may be focused more on your relationships and accomplishments than your personal self-image. It’s not so much about who you are but rather who you’re with, what you’ve done, how you live. Quality of life issues outweigh your ego: make something to strive for.
Progressed Sun conjunct the Midheaven From the Your Evolving Personality report: This is an excellent aspect for putting all your attention and energy into getting ahead and fulfilling your ambitions. Your home life may take a back seat while this aspect is in the Progressed Chart, and you are likely to be strong-willed and unwilling to make compromises. Pursue your objectives, but try not to be so willful that you alienate others unnecessarily.
Annie’s note: Prepare for this progressed position by recognizing your desire for success and achievement. Recognition or advancement in your work/career are possible now, as long as you are significantly prepared and ready to take the initiative.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Midheaven It is becoming easier, even effortless, to promote your reputation. By focusing on what makes you great, you don’t have to make up reasons for promotion, as you will create your own reputation just because of what you do. Let your record speak for itself, and it will.
Progressed Sun square or opposition Midheaven You’re in a life phase that brings up the importance of inner, personal issues at the expense of exterior, career concerns. Somehow the rat race has less appeal and relationships and life on the home front become the values you treasure more. You can’t take it with you, so it’s human company that is truly priceless.
Annie’s Note: With progressed Sun to natal Moon aspects, circumstances are such that we question whether our needs coincide with our ambitions; and whether our inner personality meshes with our outer personality or life path. Often, significant events occur at the conjunction, square, and opposition, such as marriage, divorce, or a new career path. Health issues arise, and the nature of the aspect generally indicates whether the native is healthy or is susceptible to health problems. This is because these aspects have to do with balance. These aspects are about our inner sense of harmony. Sometimes, we act against our wishes, and even against our own advice, and this kind of scenario creates an imbalance. The Moon, besides its association with the home, family, and emotions, also has to do with our personal popularity. Whether or not we receive help or support from others, and/or whether others are cooperative with us, will be issues now.
Progressed Sun conjunct Moon This year should mark a level of getting in touch with your feelings beyond your wildest expectations. In a phrase, the way you act and react suddenly become one. You have reached an equilibrium few are privileged to achieve, so watch what you are doing right as it happens, you may be called on to repeat it.
Alan Leo, in The Progressed Horoscope(1), said this: “This is a powerful influence and denotes an entire change in the native’s life, producing either advancement and elevation to a much better state of things, or a critical period in which a crisis of affairs is reached, and important changes follow.”
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Moon Chances are you are running on all cylinders, with little internal/external conflict. What you intend and what you feel are working hand in glove, so you know what you’re doing even if nobody else does. That kind of consistency makes for a good shoulder to lean on — just select well whom you allow to lean there.
Alan Leo, in The Progressed Horoscope(1), said this about Pr. Sun sextile Moon: “A very fortunate and also generally favorable aspect: all affairs tend to go well, the health is good and the mind hopeful, bright and cheerful. This aspect produces beneficial attachments and some new undertakings, which will affect the domestic or social welfare. The whole period during which this good solar aspect operates will be successful for the native, and his consciousness will expand, new light coming from various sources: in fact the real nature of this aspect is to influence the mind and enable it to see clearly and intuitively, and therefore able to make the most of opportunities.”
Progressed Sun square or opposition Moon You may find that your intentions and your feelings are not quite on the same wavelength for the moment, which can make you seem unsure of yourself. This may be because you are getting mixed signals from the players around you, so you have to throw one way and catch in another. Or it may be issues inside that are stewing a bit until you readjust your external situation.
Alan Leo, in The Progressed Horoscope(1), considered the period of the square to be very challenging and even “unfortunate”. However, he wrote the following: “Viewed from a higher standpoint this is a good vibration, as it quickens the personality and calls out all its strength to battle with the changing fate; for the changes, although apparently disastrous, are for eventual good.”
Progressed Sun conjunct Mercury If it seems like a brainstorm, it probably is — you’ve arrived at a moment when you have a suddenly increased understanding of where you heart and intentions in life lie. The ability to express and explain where you’re at is blossoming, and what might have only been thought or hinted at gets put down on paper and fuels conversation.
From our Advanced Forecast report: Communications, conversations, sending and receiving messages, and taking care of routine tasks that require mental clarity are important activities now. It is a good time to present your ideas and point of view to others, as you express your thoughts clearly, though you are not apt to listen as well. Buying, selling, or negotiating is likely to go well now. It is likely that at this time you will give a public speech, your writing will be published or distributed, or an important negotiation will be successfully undertaken.
Progressed Sun sextile Mercury Because it looks like you can put your finger on just how you come to your conclusions, you probably won’t have to explain yourself right now. Just take it for granted that you know what you’re doing, and others will go along with it. Whatever you do, it will look like well-laid plans, however spontaneous.
Progressed Sun conjunct Venus You know what you want one hundred percent, and you’re going to go for it. Your charm factor is way up, but it’s also evident that you’re looking for something, so try not to be so obvious. You’re in total tune with your hunger, so get what you need but don’t give out too much warning, which may alarm your object of desire.
Annie’s Note: The Sun is illuminating your Venus, and all of the conditions surrounding Venus are highlighted. These include your feelings of attractiveness, your desire for harmony and sharing, your romantic love nature, and artistic creativity. The desire to bring happiness and balance to your life is especially strong now. It’s easier for you to express yourself in loving, affectionate, socially popular, and charming ways. The desire to enjoy life and indulge in pleasures is also high now. Increased optimism is a positive expression of this energy; while laziness or superficiality are things you might watch for. Some may strengthen a love attachment, or begin a new love relationship at this time.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Venus There’s no slip between the cup and the lip right now, so don’t have a second thought about quaffing down your favorite pleasures, whatever or whomever they might be. You’ll probably have plenty of time to justify what your heart tells you it wants to your brain, so relax and enjoy it, it’s for you.
Progressed Sun conjunct Mars You’re tapping a reservoir of innate energy, a gusher that will fuel any project or need for the moment. It won’t last forever, but the experience will; take note of where you’re pulling your power from so you can reproduce the rush when you need another dose. A once-in-a-lifetime hit should have an available encore.
Annie’s Note: This is a time when your physical, active, and assertive nature is emphasized. The desire to take the initiative, to express your more independent and enterprising nature, and to actively experience life is strong. It’s a time during which you can truly get in touch with how confident you are with your drives and impulses. If you’ve been frustrated, angry, or feeling thwarted, then these feelings will now come to the fore and demand attention. It’s time to assert your desires and go after what you want, always keeping others in mind. While you can certainly benefit from being more decisive and enterprising, you might want to watch for impulsiveness. It’s not the time to be overly forceful or to bulldoze over others, but to discover, and constructively channel, your own energy, will, and power.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Mars You feel you have an overabundance of energy to support yourself, and that’s pretty much correct. You don’t have to go an extra mile to get an extra credit right now, as you’ve got the follow-through to do what’s necessary without extra investment. When it feels right, you’ve got the extra juice to make it so.
Progressed Sun square or opposition Mars Pushing too hard will get you nowhere, and although you may think you should go an extra mile right about now, you probably shouldn’t. The urge to make progress and expend energy is high, but the results may be diminishing returns, so step back and take a second look at where you’re committing your resources.
Progressed Sun conjunct Jupiter If you’re beginning to think you’re the next big thing, you’re probably right. At least, you’re stretching your imagination to the limit and you’re feeling you’re well ahead of your own game. When you’re sure that everyone else agrees, then make your move, as your self-assurance will take care of the rest.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Jupiter It’s easier than ever to get a hold on the big picture, and well-laid plans will have long-range effects that don’t require nearly as much effort as you might have thought. If you walk in like you own the place, you will, so feel free to indulge in your biggest visions and they will become dreams come true.
Progressed Sun square or opposition Jupiter It can be easy to overdo things right about now, so take care not to spend more energy and enthusiasm on pet projects than they in fact merit. If at first you don’t succeed, don’t try, try again. Try something else. There’s no point in throwing good money after bad, and that goes for your personal energy as well.
Progressed Sun conjunct Saturn From the Your Evolving Personality report: This aspect in the Progressed chart will nag you to turn your attention to your duties and your responsibilities: things you may not want to do, but feel you must. These duties can be more imagined than real, but they often are very intense. One measure of the mastery of life is to be able to recognize reality, and this is a good time to begin to disseminate. What you accomplish under this progression could be of lasting benefit when you follow the illumination of the Sun and the discipline of Saturn. This is an excellent time for organization and planning, to promote form and order. Just don’t let it extend to the point of trying to order and organize people–you could meet resistance. Your energy may be low, so you will need to conserve it by careful planning and doing only what is necessary. You will feel pressure from any necessary tasks you leave undone during this period. This may not be an emotionally comfortable aspect when it comes to relating to people, but don’t dwell on feelings of loneliness and depression. Get to work–that is what this energy is all about.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Saturn You’re likely to be taken for a steady hand and a shoulder to lean on right now. In fact, you are both, and you can carry it off with ease. Your ability to separate the inconsequential from the quintessential allows you to do more with less and not even notice it. Economy of motion makes every move count.
Progressed Sun square or opposition Saturn If you’re tempted to be overly self-critical, cut it out! Everyone has their limitations, but you should avoid dwelling on yours, or anyone else’s for that matter. Cutting corners will not get you where you want to go, so be a little more generous with yourself than you might think you should be. You’re worth it, every bit.
Progressed Sun conjunct Uranus This year may be quite an eye-opener, as some of your most original approaches surface and you’re likely to be willing to take chances on new, untested methods that have only just occurred to you. You can sell your offbeat side if you’re ready to temper it with a veneer of caution, don’t just spring it on people unannounced.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Uranus If you’re beginning to think you’re the next big thing, you’re probably right. At least, you’re stretching your imagination to the limit and you’re feeling you’re well ahead of your own game. When you’re sure that everyone else agrees, then make your move, as your self-assurance will take care of the rest.
Progressed Sun square or opposition Uranus It may be hard to keep an even course as intermittent inspiration suggests contrary movements, and it’s hard to be sure just what direction you want to stay with. Avoid hasty decisions and collect possibilities and weigh them before making final commitments, however tempting spur-of-the-moment opportunities may seem.
Progressed Sun conjunct Neptune A drifting and perhaps moody period enables you to get in touch with your dream world and pull some things up from your depths that had been waiting for a daylight audition. It’s a good time for making promises that can be put off, and a bad time for writing down your personal direction in stone. Let things gel and crystallize, before you sign.
Progressed Sun sextile or trine Neptune Feeling your way may get you there faster than following the directions on a map. When you’re confident of your way, others will follow your strides without requiring chapter and verse game plans. You needn’t explain yourself, just display self-assurance and move ahead with the clearly evident tide around you.
Progressed Sun square or opposition Neptune Periodic shifts of internal direction are marking inner visions that need to grow to regulation size before you pull them up into your net. Don’t confuse a wise delay with indecision, as sometimes stepping too quickly forward can cause greater delay than total inaction. Savor uncertainty like you would sip a new wine.
Progressed Sun conjunct Pluto From the Your Evolving Personality report: The Sun illuminates regeneration needs when in relation to Pluto. This aspect indicates intense experiences which will not allow you to operate only at the surface level. In the Progressed chart, it can set the stage for major changes in your life that would have long-lasting effects. On the other hand it could just motivate you to repair something that has broken down, such as a car, an appliance, a relationship, or someone’s health. You will get deeply involved in whatever you do now, as Pluto works from deep within your psyche.
Progressed Sun conjunct North Node of the Moon From the Your Evolving Personality report: This configuration in the Progressed chart can create conditions which will limit your leadership and power potential. You are not swept along by events, and there-in lies your opportunity to turn the aspect to your benefit. Apparent set-backs are from former karma when you pursued your own selfish desires above all other considerations. Now is the opportunity for balance, and to use the laws of cause and effect to clean up your act.
Progressed Sun conjunct South Node of the Moon From the Your Evolving Personality report: This configuration in the Progressed Chart can indicate that major circumstances in your environment could deny you opportunities and inhibit your resources for self-expression. Obstacles could be thrown in your path, making achievement of your desires difficult now, especially limiting your leadership and power potential. The karma here, is that you learn what it is like to be thwarted by the actions of others.
Progressed Mercury in Aspect
Progressed Mercury conjunct Ascendant Your ability and inclination to express yourself in person are way up, and you can make your case clearly and convincingly anytime and anywhere you show up. You don’t have to look into a mirror to see yourself, and understanding what you project allows you any touchups or even makeovers you choose.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Ascendant The way you are handling the subjects you have your head on right now also makes you look better, younger, and more invigorated in person. What you are thinking shows on your face, and your personal presence furthers your plans. Your ability to communicate is heightened by your body language and the nuances of your facial expressions.
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Ascendant Your mind may be less on your personal appearance and more on other seemingly more important things, but do not neglect the way you look or the image you project in person. Don’t waste too much time doing touchups, but don’t forget to take care of the basics so you’ll preserve what you’ve got for further consideration when time allows.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Sun You can spin your personal yarn in ways you never thought possible, and you can state your intentions with a will and without hesitation. Just be sure that in the process you don’t become too wrapped up in yourself or let your ego take too firm a charge of your brain. Standing back from personal issues may take a couple of tries.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Sun No need to spend time justifying what you’re about, as the first few sentences explain it all. An easy contact between head and heart allows you to get on with what you want to be without spending too much time figuring it out or making excuses for it. What you mean is what you say, so be short and sweet.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Moon Any blockages connected with expressing your feelings just plain disappear at this time in your life. It’s as if you’ve found your tongue. Home and family are the focus for much thought and planning, and are apt to be abuzz with activity. Young people play a bigger role than usual now – teaching may be a part of this. Generally a favorable time for real estate transactions, all else being equal.
A very active and busy period, involving a variety of interests that will make it difficult to concentrate on one particular subject. People, phone calls, and correspondence will make inroads on your time and result in wasted energy, unless you stand firm on your priorities. This can be a highly productive time for buying and selling, writing, studying, attending lectures, seminars, or speaking at conventions. Advance business interests and negotiate contracts. Changes may require adjustments to new routines. Take time out to visit brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and other close relatives. Accept new friends into your social circle, and do a bit of traveling. Take advantage of this trend by seeking intellectual pursuits for mental improvement. — From our Time Line Forecast Report.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Moon You’re into a period when translating your feelings into words comes more easily — probably to the extent that you don’t give it a second thought. Your reactions are clearer and the absence of crossed wires enables you to concentrate on more important things. It goes without saying, because you’ve already said it.
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Moon Putting your feelings into words may be a longer process than you’d like right about now, so why not try other forms of expression? What can’t be easily said can still be expressed in more direct forms, starting with body language. If you find yourself becoming tongue-tied, remember there are other uses for your tongue.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Venus If you can’t say what you want now, you never will. In fact, you can list it all chapter and verse, so go ahead and do so, so you can collect later. Your eye for beauty and balance is particularly clear, and your ability to put abstract design into concrete form is something you can cash in on if you choose to.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Venus Planning the road to satisfaction becomes ever easier, as what the eye envisions is just naturally what pleases without a second thought. Smooth words and warming thoughts make you both supportive and supported, as what you see is what you like, and what you like is all around you to be plucked when you choose.
A time to make proposals and pitches if ever there was one! You can make others want what you want, if you apply yourself – and if you really listen to them. Business and financial opportunities abound if you keep informed and stay on top of news about money matters.
Progressed Mercury square Venus You can talk about what you want all day and still have difficulty putting your finger on it, so action may speak louder than words in achieving your goals. Don’t explain your needs to the grocer when you can just fill your cart and move on to the checkout line. Proffering or taking advice can get in the way of just giving and receiving.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Mars The increased ability to plan and choose your actions means you can both extend your effectiveness and conserve your energies. Thoughtful maneuvers make others take up your cause and pitch in to help, allowing you to fit in and use the momentum to your advantage. Explain what you’re doing, and all will go along with it.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Mars Maintaining your course at cruising speed should require minimum effort for a while, so take the time to figure out just how you’ve got things distributed and what you’re doing right. Having a detailed snapshot of your successes now will help you out when you need to apply them to challenges down the road.
You have a way of stirring people with words now and of getting fired up by the eloquence of others, as well. This could be one of the best times to set new plans in motion and to get others to support you by convincing them that it’s the smart thing to do.
Progressed Mercury square Mars Figuring out ways around obstacles that prevent you from doing what you want and getting where you want to be has a way of keeping your mental gears turning at this time in your life. Change is in the air, and you need to change your plans accordingly – if you don’t, you encounter increasing resistance. Harsh words, hasty actions, or impatience may lead you to do things you’ll regret later.
There appears to be a high degree of increased nervous stimulation coupled with an overactive mentality. You don’t mean to be abrupt and cutting in your speech, but the impulsive nature of this tendency inclines you to act rashly, without due consideration for the feelings of others. You can fly off the handle in a burst of temper to innocent remarks made by others. This is not the best time for making important decisions, signing documents, or traveling. Use caution with personal and business affairs to avoid fraudulent circumstances. Make sure the brakes and other mechanical parts of your car are in good shape to avoid the possibility of accidents, and drive defensively. — From our Time Line Forecast Report.
Progressed Mercury opposition Mars Controversy can really stir things up for you now – and there’s plenty of it to go around if you want to get in on it. You feel very strongly about convincing other people that you’re right, and you can get very heated in the process… too much for you own good, in fact. Disagreements can turn ugly if you lose control.
Cooperation, compromise, and patience will be required to avoid serious disputes and quarrels. You are likely to be confronted by business and professional relationships that will disagree with your ideas or suggestions. Losing your temper is not the answer; it will only lead to further conflicts and difficulties. You may be lacking in good judgment during this trend and should therefore avoid signing important papers or negotiating contracts. Be careful of what you say and what you write at all times. You can open yourself to threat of litigation through careless remarks. Your aggravated manner can drive friends and loved ones away from you. Impulsive and hasty actions can lead to traffic and industrial accidents. Use caution in all mental and physical activities.

Progressed Mercury conjunct Jupiter It’s a year to get specific with your ambitions and turn your big picture into a working plan. You can get your head around challenging concepts that may have been waiting in the wings for your go-ahead. Well-conceived preparations laid down now will provide the groundwork for a new world of accomplishment.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Jupiter When you’ve got a solid plan, you can achieve almost anything, and right now you’re in maximum planning mode, even though you may not even notice it. Big thinking comes easy, accompanied by the appropriate strategies to turn imagination into accomplishment. Trust your insights, don’t take them for granted.
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Jupiter It can be easy to overstate the obvious and allow your ambitions to get drowned in talk and explanation. A few good words are all that is needed, but just the right ones may be hard to find. This may be the time to weed out the superfluous and cut to the quick. If it requires too much discussion, it may not be for you.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Saturn This is a time for being wise, not just smart. Calm and deliberate thinking pays off for you and wins the respect of others. Serious business initiatives begun now have good prospects, provided you’re well informed and sufficiently capitalized. This is an excellent time to think about long-term financial security, to size up your obligations and then set out a plan for accomplishing your goals. — From our Time Line Forecast Report.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Saturn Clarity of thought comes ever more easily as you get rid of the chaff, and what is truly necessary becomes the natural focus of your understanding. You won’t mince words, and what you say will command ever greater respect as your position will be unshakeable. When your arguments are rock solid, who could disagree?
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Saturn When you don’t know your limitations, they can trip you up. On the other hand, if you talk too much about them, they become the focus and you lose focus. It’s all about figuring out just what’s necessary and what’s not right now, without slowing yourself down too much in the process. Omit needless words.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Uranus Bright new ideas are the order of the day, and your inventiveness is gearing up for a new peak. Expect sudden flashes of inspiration and be ready to write them down so you don’t forget. Promote your positions with diplomacy, however, as they may seem over-the-top to some until they become used to the new approach.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Uranus Keeping your ideas fresh is the order of the day, and it’s likely to be happening without your thinking too much about it. But don’t take your talent for granted, or let others do so — check out just what it is you are doing right and where you’re sensing the leading edge and be sure you get credit for it.
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Uranus Inspiration can be on-again off-again, and ideas that seem like brilliant flashes at one moment may turn out to be flash-in-the-pan history the next. The trick is to pick out the diamond in the rough from all the chipped rhinestones. There’s gold in them thar hills, and only some of it is fool’s gold, so stay on nugget alert.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Neptune There’s a fine line between visionary thinking and confused logic, and that’s the line of intention. This is a good time to be a beautiful dreamer and outline new possibilities — it is not such a good time for trying to make impossibilities come true. Don’t insist on logic when it’s not needed — there’s plenty of time later.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Neptune Intuition provides endless shortcuts to challenges of the mind, and when you’re in a bind for a solution, feeling it through may go further than thinking it through. You’ve got a good handle on your hunches right now, and you don’t have to gamble big to win big. Just follow your nose and it will lead you right to dinner.
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Neptune Making yourself perfectly clear may be perfectly impossible at this time, and when you lose your thread, admit it and be ready to start over. Sometimes wandering off the path leads to new discoveries, other times just delay and recovery. Expect a mix of both for a while, and be ready to exploit what you run across.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Pluto Mental blocks can have you up against a wall, and you may have to completely blow away the obstacles to get a clear course. That may mean abandoning old approaches and busting up long-held prejudices and opinions that are holding up progress. Just watch that your own determination/stubbornness isn’t part of the problem.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Pluto Solid ideas gain force not only from their own weight but from the strength of their supporters. If you make it clear you’ve no doubt about where you stand, less doubt will be cast upon it. You needn’t back up what you say with force, only seem willing to do so and that will have all the needed effect.
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Pluto Roadblocks appear that are really just in the mind but nevertheless hold things up. A few well-placed shots may break up resistance but may also drag you into more confrontation, so choose your shots well and be ready to make an end run that leaves them all sitting and wondering what just happened.
Progressed Mercury conjunct Midheaven Your status and reputation now depend in large part on your ability to communicate and your command of the pertinent facts. Career can shift into high gear; people in positions of authority are important sources of information. You’re more in touch with the public and the world at large than with your private life and family situation, all else being equal. — From our Time Line Forecast Report.
Progressed Mercury sextile or trine Midheaven You needn’t think too much about what they are saying about you, as you’ve probably got a natural feel for it right about now. It might be good to document any praises that come along, as later you may want to reexamine how you earned them so you can repeat your successes under new circumstances.
Progressed Mercury square or opposition Midheaven Your head may not be as involved with maintaining your social and professional status, which could bring the repercussions you might expect from neglect. Other issues may truly be more important, but take some time (but don’t waste too much) patching up your public relations to maintain your perceived position.
Progressed Mercury Stationary Retrograde You have reached a mental turning point which, for the next couple of decades, will see you reconsidering the way you organize your thoughts and analyze your actions. You may find yourself taking time for that second opinion that allows you to pick up stitches that might otherwise have been dropped. You may not be as immediately vocal as you were, but your word will count for more when you express it.
Progressed Mercury Stationary Direct You are reaching an internal turning point after which you will be less inclined to mull things over and wait for more information before making decisions. It’s becoming time to let your already-considered opinion become public knowledge and speak out on subjects that might earlier have caused you hesitation.
Progressed Venus in Aspect
Progressed Venus Stationary Direct There is a natural feeling developing inside you that you have spent enough time weighing your options and that you can comfortably make decisions on just what you want and don’t want out of life. It’s time to take a pass on things that just won’t satisfy and point the rest of your life toward embracing your true desires.
Progressed Venus conjunct Ascendant From the Your Evolving Personality report: This conjunction bestows upon you a pleasant appearance and personal mannerisms which are pleasing and harmonious. Your ability to express these qualities bring harmony and beauty into your surroundings. You need to appreciate the source of these gifts, use them appropriately, and avoid any tendencies toward narcissism.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Ascendant You don’t have to check your mirror to know you’re looking good. When you get what you want from other areas, your complexion reflects your satisfaction, and that becomes the substitute for self-image. When you’re doing what you like, it will show up more than skin deep as an infectious glow from within.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Ascendant You may be thinking that your physical appearance needs fixing, but you’re not satisfied with what can be done about it. This may not be of your own making, but rather from feedback in other areas you’re paying more attention to. Don’t let others, or your involvement in them, dictate your image. Do it yourself, in your own time, to your own satisfaction.
Progressed Venus conjunct Sun It’s increasingly nice to be you, and you may be quickly becoming your own greatest admirer. When all you need is to be you, you’re one up on the rest of the world and it gives you a glow of satisfaction that makes you an object of desire. When you applaud yourself, the world follows suit.
Progressed Venus sextile Sun A calm, assured demeanor displays that you really like what’s going on inside of you and you really don’t waste much time worrying about it. When you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, and universal applause follows. The focus is no longer on getting yourself there, it’s using what you’ve got in the best possible way.
Progressed Venus conjunct Moon It’s about feeling good, or rather, feeling good about your feelings. You’ll find yourself owning up and taking charge of the way you react to situations and wanting to do more of it. You don’t have to take charge to feel profoundly satisfied. Sometimes catching that last out at the plate makes you the star of the game.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Moon You’ve moved into a period where expressing your feelings honestly will get you pretty much what you want without having to insist or repeat yourself. You don’t have to try, just do it. You might, however, stand back and take a look at what you’re doing right so you can repeat yourself later. Giving and taking meld for the moment.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Moon From the Your Evolving Personality report: This aspect in the Progressed Chart can bring concerns about finances and the standard of living (aesthetics) into sharp awareness. Personality and emotions are heightened, making judgments take on an emotional direction during this progression. Beware of the tendency for criticism in emotional relationships. Cultivate patience and practice serenity.
Progressed Venus conjunct Mercury Chances are your thinking cap is becoming your hat of choice, and you’re really beginning to appreciate what it’s like to love someone for their mind. And in this case, that someone is you. Drinking in knowledge and learning, organizing your life, and just communicating are profound sources of satisfaction and attract praise outside as well as in.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Mercury You’re probably fairly confident that your best-laid schemes are going to succeed, and, in fact, the more you feel like that the more right you will be. Your desires are in tune with your ability to figure them out and satisfy them — a great place to be. Remember that later on should you begin to want more than you need.
Progressed Venus square Mercury You may be wanting more than you believe you can arrange, or you may doubt your ability to think your way through issues to success. Don’t put yourself down, because you’re wrong about that, but do use the occasion to tighten up your act where needed and attend to details of your plans that may not be up to snuff.
Progressed Venus sextile Venus Although you may not have gotten everything you want in life (who does?), you’re probably pretty sure of what that is and your progress toward getting it. You’re not likely to be slowed by changing your goals or unhappiness with what you’ve got, so it’s all forward motion — at least as far as what you’ve got your sights on.
Progressed Venus square Venus It may be hard to make up your mind about what you want, as what used to satisfy seems to have run out on you and what you’d like to have is unavailable. That may be true to an extent, but it’s also a state of mind that passes. You’ll find that what you truly like doesn’t really change much in the end, you just have to get reacquainted and refreshed from time to time.
Progressed Venus conjunct Mars When you do it, you like it, and the more you put out, the more you want to do it some more. That applies to about any kind of energy you expend, but especially to energy that is appetite-driven and pleasure-intensive. If you could eat yourself for breakfast, you might — but why not let someone else do that?
Annie’s Note: Your desire nature is strongly stimulated, and the urge to experience new sensations can dominate now. Be careful that you don’t ignore your deeper emotions, needs, and wants in your pursuit of pleasure and the latest sensation. Enjoyment of life in the moment is a strong potential now. Heightened needs to express yourself creatively and through romantic/sexual relationships are experienced. Life becomes more colorful and animated.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Mars Your passions are pretty much in line with your ability to deliver on them, so you’re probably scoring what you want and maybe taking it a bit for granted. Others might envy your state, however, and so might you when you look back on it. Ask yourself what is the key to your success, then put it in your pocket for safekeeping.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Mars You may not always feel that your efforts are getting you what you want, but that may be more the result of your changing tastes than of your ability to serve them. Determine your desires and don’t move the goal posts before you can get your kick in the air — then it will sail smack between the uprights.
Progressed Venus conjunct Jupiter You’re going to be wanting to take a much bigger bite out of life — why go for what you’ve been content with when you can spring for the max? This can double your pleasure, double your fun, but it can also double your weight, double your risk. It’s more than OK to swallow life whole, just watch out there are no hooks.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Jupiter You can increase your personal appetites and indulge freely without too much worry, as you won’t likely go over the top. You’ve got a good feeling when you’ve had enough, and before that, it’s just good feelings. Others around you may not be so steady, so don’t let them emulate you if they’re not up to it.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Jupiter Your eyes may be bigger than your stomach, so be careful not to bite off more than you can chew, or swallow more than you can digest. The peril is in taking that extra mouthful because the last one wasn’t quite as good as you expected. In any situation where you encounter diminishing returns, pull back before you go over the edge.
Progressed Venus conjunct Saturn From the Your Evolving Personality report: This is not the typical “feel-good” Venus aspect, but it is not negative. When in the Progressed Chart, it centers around love and affection, adding discipline and practicality to relationships. There could be difficulty in some relationships and, occasionally, it might mean saying good-bye to a loved one. You may seek the advice of an older person regarding relationships during this time. You are likely to act with restraint, so there is not the usual self-indulgence or “buying spree” influences of other Venus aspects.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Saturn Simple fare is often the most satisfying — especially when it’s not a fad but a true appreciation of what lasts. Your tastes may run to the conservative but elegant, avoiding the extravagant and doubling your ready resources because you pay less for the experience. You may not even notice, as you’ll do it so naturally.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Saturn Your tastes may run more to distaste for the moment, where what you don’t like influences your goals as much as what you do like. In the avoidance of one flavor, however, don’t fling yourself into the arms of something even more undesirable. Better to fast than to swallow something ugly you’ll regret later.
Progressed Venus conjunct Uranus You may find your tastes becoming more and more curious, and there’s no time like the present to explore new and unusual paths to pleasure and satisfaction. Why be satisfied with meat and potatoes when there’s a world of spices waiting to stimulate your senses? And if you like it, you might even find a way to market it.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Uranus The way to refreshing your tastes is to keep changing them while not replacing everything that has gone before. New pleasures build on old, and this season’s fashions are built on last season’s foundations. You are currently in a position to draw on both, so pick and choose at will — it’s fairly effortless.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Uranus It may be hard to settle on what you like as tastes have a way of changing rather suddenly, and what tweaks your interest one moment may be a bomb the next. Knowing that, avoid criticizing too loudly what doesn’t please you today, as you may want to wolf it down tomorrow. Leave room to gracefully change your mind.
Progressed Venus conjunct Neptune From the Your Evolving Personality report: This aspect in the Progressed chart bestows a vivid imagination and subconscious mind images. Mystical inspiration and visions can find expression in music, writing and art. Your spiritual feelings are likely to be extremely advanced now, and healing powers are possible. You are likely to be sensitive, perceptive, and empathetic. You crave emotional rapport, and when it is attained, there is peace and joy for all included. However, you need to watch out for tendencies toward impractical romantic dreams which could make you deceptive in love relationships during this time. Such expectations could put unbearable burdens on others in your life.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Neptune A little imagination goes a long way in guaranteeing that what you get is what you wanted in the first place. Embellishing your desires and painting your fantasies just enough to raise them a notch makes it look like you’re a step above the crowd. Good taste is timeless, so you needn’t check your watch.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Neptune Desires come and go, and sometimes getting your hands on what you want reveals that you really didn’t check it out enough beforehand. Things are not always what they seem, and even when they are, that doesn’t guarantee satisfaction. Consider this a trying-out period, when you pick and choose without final decisions.
Progressed Venus conjunct Pluto It’s time for hot or cold — lukewarm simply won’t do right now. If you want it, you’re going to devour it. If you don’t, you’ll toss it aside without a thought. In the process, you may reach new heights of experience, but you may miss some of life’s smaller pleasures in the process. And don’t forget, pleasures worth dying for can kill you.
[Note from Annie: I have seen this aspect in directions a few times in women’s charts at the time of giving birth.]
Annie’s Note: The need to experience new depths in intimacy and close personal relationships is powerful now. This can stimulate a more demanding part of your nature when it comes to love and affection, and existing partners might receive the message that what they are doing is not enough. Superficial attachments are no longer satisfying. Some will leave an unsatisfying relationship behind, start a new one, or begin to expect (or demand) more from an existing partnership. Love relationships need to be transformed now. Any jealous, insecure, obsessive, or possessive emotions that are stimulated now, stemming from fear of rejection and betrayal, should be acknowledged and examined in order to learn from them.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Pluto Make your needs known, and then collect on them. You’re likely to get what you firmly believe you deserve and are willing to make a stand for. When it’s obviously got your name on it, chances are no one else will make a play for it. That means brand your stock, and it will always return to your corral.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Pluto Sometimes what you want just isn’t worth fighting for — and usually you find that out after the fray. Choose your battles, and their goals, and when in doubt choose to wait and see. To the victor go the spoils, and all too frequently they’re spoiled. Today’s desperate needs seem ho-hum tomorrow.
Progressed Venus conjunct Midheaven Increased desire and ambition may have you paying a lot more attention to how you look and are talked about. No one can give you good press like yourself, but it’s a good idea to make it look like it comes from elsewhere. Want it, but don’t show that you want it too badly, and you’ll be on everyone’s lips.
Progressed Venus sextile or trine Midheaven Whatever your main attraction, your pursuit of it is likely to be helping you out on the general stage of public life. Read that: they’re saying good things about you without your having to do any advertising to get it. So for the moment, just tend to what you’re doing and get someone else to collect news clippings on the side.
Progressed Venus square or opposition Midheaven Fortune and fame may not at all be what’s appealing to you right now, but don’t push them away too hard or they won’t be waiting in the wings when you change your mind. Tending to more personal affairs is probably more the order of the day, while critiquing what might be improved for later public relation attempts.
Progressed Mars in Aspect
Progressed Mars conjunct Ascendant If you are ever going to run the four-minute mile, now is surely the time. A new surge of physical energy begins coursing through your veins and you’re ready to jump off the mark at the starting gun — any starting gun. Just make sure you look before you leap so you don’t have to turn around and try it over again.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Ascendant There’s nothing like inspiration or just having fun in general to revive your physical energies and keep your juices flowing. Throwing yourself into what you like shows up on your face as a youthful look and on your body as extra energy to burn. Creativity and being a part of the bigger picture is a plug-in to life.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Ascendant Your current inclination to throw your energy into exterior projects may make for some periodic fatigue on the interior level. Save a little for yourself so you don’t bring your immune system down and so you can, well, have some time for fun. If you’re too pooped to pop, what’s the point?
Progressed Mars conjunct Sun A new shot of sustained energy welling up inside may be turning you into a ball of fire before you know it. A spring of indwelling power is being tapped for the moment that brings confidence and the ability to stride forward with new self-confidence. Make sure you put it to good use, avoiding ego trips along the way.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Sun A rolling wave of inner energy adds to your self-confidence and assertiveness. You’ll feel it moving you surely but strongly as strength and stamina pick up, and you’ll be able to shoulder psychic burdens that might have previously daunted you. Ride the crest and stay with it, bringing others along for the ride.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Sun The itch to assert yourself needs scratching, but it’s likely to be off and on, so follow-through will be the test of your newfound confidence. It’s easy to waste energy repeating yourself, however, so keep forward motion and don’t get hung up on only one outlet for your enthusiasm.
Progressed Mars conjunct Moon From the Your Evolving Personality report: With this aspect in the Progressed Chart, the personality will experience applied emotional energy. Your actions will take on emotional intensity. Sexual impulses may be enhanced emotionally, bringing a deeper meaning and greater understanding. Consequently, relationships could be enhanced now. On the negative side, sexual frustration could cause the possibility of violent impulses to surface. These feelings must be sublimated. Physical exercise will help, and prayer and meditation are indicated.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Moon Strong feelings well up and pace themselves so that the overall emotional level of your life is kicked up a notch for a while, adding new energy to your whole existence. Friends may have to readjust as you pick up speed just to keep up, but the added intensity will be generally bound to please.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Moon Fueled-up emotions are the order of the day for a while, so don’t tread on toes unless you mean to follow through. Passions can flare, for good or ill, and a ready will to retract overzealous or too-insistent feelings where needed will serve you in good stead. Don’t be too quick on the trigger or you’ll miss the mark.
Progressed Mars conjunct Mercury Mental sparks may be expected to fly, igniting a general invigoration of your ability to organize ideas and develop them until they turn to action. Dispassionate analysis gives way to mind storms which motivate but may lead to haste and premature conclusions, so enjoy the boost without going over the top.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Mercury A noticeable lift in concentration and mental endurance can keep you on the job longer, with better productivity. There’s less tendency to lose focus or get bogged down by brain drain, as there’s a natural tendency to pace yourself. Others may not keep up so well, so explain yourself and help them catch up before you move on.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Mercury A new level of mental activity can be diverted into too much concentration and repetition that saps arriving brain power and leaves you where you began. Avoid sidetracking and keep moving to the next level and you’ll make progress. When you get frazzled, chill out for a while, don’t keep pressing on until you lose focus.
Progressed Mars conjunct Venus You’re likely to be finding out the true meaning of burning desire — and just what needs to be done to make sure the fire is quenched. Taking action to meet heightened needs is the order of the day, and you’re the first to step up to the plate. You want it? Go get it — it’s yours. Work hard, play hard.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Venus You’re likely to get what you want simply by keeping at it without trying too hard. Cast your nets easy and strong and you’ll be pulling in more than you need, enough to share. You probably won’t really notice how you’re managing it so well, but you should take notes. It’s all in the timing, so remember how you did it.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Venus Sometimes you can chase your object of affection around in circles and never quite get there. Take no for an answer and try a new game, rather than beat around the bush. There are plenty of fish in the sea, and you’ve got the right bait on your hook — don’t waste it casting at the wrong fish.
Progressed Mars conjunct Jupiter Don’t be surprised if you feel a sudden surge of ambition, a rush of enthusiasm to push your possibilities to the limits and take chances on the opportunity to expand your frontiers. You’ll have more than enough energy for the task, but you should probably do some feasibility studies first, because no one has a limitless supply of fuel.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Jupiter You’ll be feeling upward and outward bound for a while, and since you’ve got your timing down pat it will not be a difficult journey. Whatever the new ground to cover, you’re up to the task without thinking twice about it, taking one easy stride at a time at a wolf trot that eats up the miles.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Jupiter You’re likely to feel the urge to expand and it will look like you’ve got more than enough juice to do the trick, but watch out for time and energy wasters that could sap your efforts. Maintain an unwavering course and you’ll be on the mark, but give yourself some slack to deal with sudden lapses and detours.
Progressed Mars conjunct Saturn Walk softly now, do not tempt fate! Extra care is needed with tools and machinery. Caution is your best ally now: safety and security should be your prime considerations. There is a driving ambition to achieve personal recognition and career advancements. Your attempts to initiate action along these lines appear hindered and blocked by responsibilities and restrictions. Instead of losing your temper and rebelling against authority, try using this energy in a more constructive manner. Be resourceful, organize and discipline your actions, then apply it toward work requiring hard and laborious efforts. You should be able to handle jobs demanding precision and methodical handling of tasks. A parent, boss, or older individual will either assist or hinder personal progress. — From our Time Line Forecast Report.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Saturn Although you might not have thought so before, slow and steady wins the race, and the inclination to pace yourself and adopt a more even pace feels like it’s going to pay off. By harboring your energies and pulling weight in careful graduations, you get more done and become stronger in the process.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Saturn Ordinarily fluctuating emotions will be inclined to larger swings that bring new tides of happiness and joy that sometimes recede and leave you temporarily on the beach. Sustaining the rhythm will become the trick, so you can keep the best of each new advance as you go from high to low and generally raise the level of delight.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Uranus Urgent action can still be smooth, and a practiced draw is over and back in the holster before the competition can squeeze off a shot. It’s about pressure, and the less pressured you are, the faster, cooler, and more original your moves. It’s a Zen operation — don’t move it, move within it — allow the fire-burst.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Uranus Stop-and-go traffic can make for overuse of the accelerator and a stiff neck. Avoid the urge to leap into things and then have to come screeching to a halt. Steady’s not so heady, but it gets you there without draining your tank. Avoid quick draws, let someone else shoot themselves in the foot.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Neptune A good, intuitive sense of the feel of the road enables you to take corners at speeds others might avoid. Knowing where you are going without having to explain it makes for easier cruising and less energy wasted on detours. Don’t push toward your destination, let it pull you in and coast on the power of mutual attraction.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Neptune If you try to be too slippery, you’re likely to slip on your own banana, so check your treads before you try driving on ice. Every attempt at course correction and steady bearing will be rewarded, and predictions should be moment to moment only. Multiple small efforts succeed where single ones go awry.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Pluto Maintaining force means keeping the pace and not easing up on your efforts. You can keep the pressure on simply by following the usual schedule and not taking needless breaks. Like any exercise program, strength is built on using your energy regularly, which rejuvenates you as go, moment to moment.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Pluto Just when you get ready to knock down the roadblock, it vanishes, and then it turns up someplace else. It’s really easy to spend a lot of energy winding up for punches you don’t deliver, so save yourself for only those that matter. Chasing small fry will find you worn out when the big one comes along.
Progressed Mars conjunct Midheaven Big efforts to forward your professional and/or public endeavors seem like the order of the day, and you’ve got the steam up to do what it takes to get things done. The word is out that you are really focused and committed, because you demonstrate it from moment to moment and exude the satisfaction it gives.
Progressed Mars sextile or trine Midheaven By putting your energy into seemingly more mundane affairs that might be labeled as ordinary, you somehow come up smelling like a rose of a different name. Without actually promoting yourself, your actions speak louder than words, and you gain public ground and a new respect from others that you didn’t even seek.
Progressed Mars square or opposition Midheaven From the Your Evolving Personality report: This aspect in the Progressed chart can make you aggressive and self-assertive. You need to avoid impulsiveness, and to consider others’ feelings during this time. Where your ego is involved, conflicts can develop in your professional and domestic life. If you can harness that energy in a positive way, much can be accomplished.
