The Gods of Change: Pain, Crisis, and the Transits of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto is a rich psychological study of the outer planet transits by the late Howard Sasportas.
Sasportas offers some “practical guidelines” to interpreting transits–and handling them as well! He suggests that we should anticipate the outer planet transits, prepare for them, and “cooperate” with them. This way, we need not be taken off guard. And, more importantly, we can work with the transits in a conscious manner in order to feel more in control of our lives.
Sasportas pays much attention to our inner battlefield — the psychological underpinnings that transits, effectively, trigger.
Each outer planet–Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto–is discussed in a general sense before interpretations of their transits by house and aspect are offered. Some illuminating case studies are presented at the end of the book, and these are pulled from the astrologer’s files instead of celebrity examples. I appreciate the “regular people” case studies, simply because they are easier to relate to.
This book is one of the most valuable Astrology books on my book shelf. It’s insightful, useful, and inspirational. You won’t find any dire predictions here. Instead, you’ll get truly empowering suggestions on how to better prepare for–and manage–those sometimes daunting outer planet transits.
