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 nine degrees of the sign, Taurus. The following interpretations are for the current year and place of residence.
PROGRESSED TAURUS RISING WITH NATAL ASCENDANT IN CAPRICORN–Capricorn is ruled by the Planet Saturn, the “Great Malefic”. The ancients believed Saturn was the Planet of bad luck, but modern Astrology sees its influences as more disciplinary, indicating areas of stability, determination, and practicality–teaching through experience. It also manifests spiritual qualities on the earth plane. To others you seem mature, serious, quiet, and emotionally detached. You dislike sloppy sentimentality and won’t openly display your feelings, especially the softer ones. Others also see stability and determination in your personality. You can be extremely serious, and find it difficult to take matters lightly. You may have an unreasonable fear of failure. Choices are important for you, especially the letting go of judgments of “rights and wrongs”. Learning to live and let live will propel you to the top of the mountain. You are to be relied upon, depended upon, and respected.
Taurus Rising in the PROGRESSED Chart will influence many modifications to the previous Ascendant. It will add stability, stickability, and a deeper sensitivity for others. You will be more content and easy-going up to a point, but when goaded beyond endurance, can let out the mightiest bellow in the Zodiac. Your latent talents not used before could very well find their expression while Taurus is rising in the Progressed Chart. Taurus is one of the “money” signs. This will enhance your desire to excel in financial matters and your search for security. You need to be aware of the strong desire nature of Taurus Rising. It can enhance relationships, but it could also bind you too tightly to the earth. You could become so engrossed in material existence that you miss the deeper meaning of life. You need to find healthy, productive ways to enjoy yourself and feed your pleasure needs while this Ascendant is in your Progressed Chart. You need self-discipline and routine. They can help you establish more security and convince you that you can achieve what you set out to do–with pleasure.
PROGRESSED GEMINI ON 2ND HOUSE–Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and when the sign is progressed to the second house of money and worth, material things are likely to be available and important. You will think about finances and material resources and will utilize the thinking and communicating processes to obtain them. There could be more than one source, and your possessions would tend to be artistic and aesthetic during this time.
PROGRESSED GEMINI ON 3RD HOUSE–Gemini, the intellectual sign, is ruled by Mercury, the messenger. This sign and planet are at home in this house of communications, travel, study, writing and the thinking mind. When it is found on the third house in the Progressed Chart, communications should be sharp, clear, swift, and to the point. The affairs ruled by this house will be executed quickly, intelligently, and efficiently. You may even become interested in more than one language. You may need to pause occasionally now, and let the rest of us catch up to you.
PROGRESSED CANCER ON 4TH HOUSE–The Moon rules Cancer and when this emotional combination is progressed to the fourth house of home and domestic activity, emotions will prevail. You will want friends to spend time with you in your home, but you will also need time alone. Your home will be your retreat where you can shut out the world and other unpleasant things. You are dedicated to your family, but you may also want to make your home a base of business operations during this progression.
PROGRESSED LEO ON 5TH HOUSE–Leo, ruled by the Sun and natural ruler of the fifth house, can make the affairs of that house “shine” when it is found there in the Progressed Chart. It can add verve to love-sex, entertainment and speculation. Children, both children of the body and “children of the mind” can be outstanding and unusual in some way now. Love affairs are certain to be extremely intense during this progression.
PROGRESSED VIRGO ON 6TH HOUSE–Virgo is at home in the sixth house of work, service, and health. Mercury is the planetary ruler of Virgo, and when this combination is found on this house in the Progressed Chart, they influence you to be very organized and careful about details in sixth house affairs. The intellectual approach is practiced, and you can probably do more than one thing at a time. Your performance will reflect care and precision with superior quality. However, some things may not get finished because of the tendency to perfectionism and waning enthusiasm. You are likely to be attracted to health foods and other health maintenance regimes during this time.
PROGRESSED SCORPIO ON 7TH HOUSE–This is a Fixed, water sign, ruled by Mars and Pluto, and can be one of the strongest signs in the zodiac. When it appears on the seventh house of partnerships and the public in the Progressed Chart, its power should be wielded with caution. You are likely to be attracted to creative partners who excel also in the power areas. You need to guard against jealousy and possessiveness with partners now. Your need for the regeneration of relationships could be great during this time, and you will need to seek detachment and positive spiritual support.
PROGRESSED SAGITTARIUS ON 8TH HOUSE–The eighth house deals with primal instincts, death, and others’ resources. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, and brings expansion, idealism and higher mind to these areas. When Sagittarius is on the eighth house in the Progressed Chart, you could profit through an inheritance or some other unplanned or unusual windfall. Your partner is also likely to be financially stable during this time. On the other side of the coin, goals could be set too high and there could be a tendency to overspend or over-expand. Loss of an older friend or family member could cause you to begin thinking about death in a more personal way now.
PROGRESSED SAGITTARIUS ON 9TH HOUSE–Sagittarius is at home in the ninth house of philosophy, religion, education, travel, and publishing. This fire sign in the Mutable mode is ruled by Jupiter. When it is progressed to the ninth house of the higher mind, philosophy, etc., it can indicate a restless mind struggling against traditional grounding. There may be a longing for “greener pastures”, and periodic wanderings in search of things of the higher mind. This configuration will influence dependability and wisdom in ninth house affairs. However, your expectations may be too high for other common mortals, so you need to have patience.
PROGRESSED CAPRICORN ON 10TH HOUSE–The sign Capricorn is “at home” on the tenth house of honor, profession, vocation, and career. With Saturn as ruler here in the Progressed Chart, you will approach all career matters with order and discipline. Capricorn is often the “business” sign, indicating that you would probably be very successful in your own business. These matters will be extremely serious to you now, but you need to also consider the feelings of others while trying to achieve your own ambitions. Professional achievements are important, but it is sometimes difficult to cultivate the patience it takes to get there.
PROGRESSED AQUARIUS ON 11TH HOUSE–Aquarius is “at home” on the eleventh house of friends, goals, and love received. Ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius on the eleventh house of the Progressed chart can provide a mixture of the stable and the unusual among friends and group activities. It could cause some sudden changes. Some friendships will be fleeting now, but those that last are likely to be mutually rewarding. Freedom and love issues, and love of freedom will be of great interest to you and your friends during this progression.
PROGRESSED PISCES ON 12TH HOUSE–Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the double octave planet of confusion-delusion and/or imagination-inspiration. Pisces is at home on the twelfth house of limitations, subconscious mind, and institutions in the Progressed chart. Karma here indicates lifetime goals are to bring out the subconscious into the conscious, and to use your intuition to work beyond your limitations. Working with others less fortunate in large institutions could be indicated. You need to develop empathy with and sympathy for others during this progression.
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 sixth year of a 30-year cycle in the sign, Cancer. You have about 25 years left in this life-cycle.
PROGRESSED SUN IN CANCER WITH NATAL SUN IN TAURUS–With your NATAL Sun in Taurus, you are probably very efficient in practical matters, and your spiritual truth comes from working with the practical aspects of life. You like money–not so much for its own sake, but so that you can enjoy the things it will buy. You appreciate beautiful things, especially those which appeal to the sense of touch. You are fond of good clothing and can be genuinely impressed by the wardrobes of others. You seek security, both emotional and material. You may resist involvement in a relationship for fear of getting hurt, nevertheless there is likely to always be a significant other in your life. You can be very jealous as a result of your deep inner need for mental and emotional security. You are endowed with strong willpower and are capable of making plans for years in advance and successfully implementing them. You have your own way of doing things, and if others want things to go smoothly, it is wise for them not to interfere with you or attempt to make you over. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of your greatest assets. Once your course is set, you pursue it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway you from your purpose. However, you may have to learn to expect less than absolute perfection in the end results, and that reality may not always shape up to your exacting demands.
Flighty Gemini would have shaken up the stability of the NATAL Taurus Sun influences and instilled somewhat of a dual personality. The stodgy, lazy influences of Taurus would certainly have been activated. The positive influences of the two signs could certainly have strengthened each other’s negative influences.
When the Sun moves into Cancer in the PROGRESSED Chart you will need to deal with the force of the emotions, planning for security, defending the position, and demanding recognition of the feelings. The energies flow outward to achieve the image of emotional fulfillment. Perhaps the greatest adjustment from the Sun in Gemini will be the slowing down of the nervous temperament. As a result of the rapid movement of the Moon however, mood changes can be rapid and remarkable. The Cancer Sun will tend to place the emotions within the self rather than to project them upon someone else, as the Gemini was likely to do. You may be surprised at how easy and natural it becomes to express your emotions through tears. Your temperament will be romantic, indulgent, and easy hurt. Your instinct for giving and caring will help fulfill your concept of self esteem. If there has been any kind of instability in romantic involvements while your Sun was in Gemini, the Cancer Sun is likely to help settle them down. There will be more of a tendency to focus on one relationship at a time. You will be more protective of loved ones, and may even become a little jealous of them. This extreme emotional temperament may make you more prone to disease, and symptoms are likely to be exaggerated emotionally. You may also have a tendency to overeat.
PROGRESSED SUN IN 3RD HOUSE–The Sun in the houses represents the departments of life most strongly affected by individual will and power potential. 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. Progression into the third house indicates a strong drive to achieve distinction through intellectual brilliance and mental accomplishments. You may have a scientific approach with an urge to know and understand the inner workings of life’s processes. You are eager to investigate new things and explore all the possibilities in areas where you function. You will also want to travel. It is important for you to be able to express yourself and communicate your ideas clearly during this time. You need to watch for tendencies toward intellectual arrogance or snobbery, and be careful not to force your ideas on others.
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 09 degrees of an approximate two-and-a-half-year life cycle in the sign, Leo. You should have, roughly, 22 months left until it moves into the next Moon-sign cycle.
PROGRESSED MOON IN LEO WITH NATAL MOON IN SCORPIO–When the NATAL Moon is in Scorpio it indicates strong, biased emotions based on willful desire. The inclination toward brooding can be a serious character trait which is usually present in persons with this sign, and you need to avoid allowing yourself to harbor negative feelings. This is not an easy sign to live with, but when self is conquered you can find that no sacrifice is too great to achieve a worthwhile objective. Scorpio is a dual sign in which man’s higher instincts are striving to rise above his baser desires. You do nothing half-way. You will let nothing or no one stand in your way of accomplishing that which you set out to do. Because of this determination and drive you can accomplish just about anything you wish. You do need to be extra careful that your goals are worthwhile and positive. Your romantic and sexual drives are strong and demanding. You are not the shy one, and will certainly let your needs be known. Relationships are important to you, but you will tend to dominate them–at least to want them on your own terms. You will contribute much: AND expect much in return. At some point in your life there is likely to be a drastic change in the way you see things. Your focus will change from personal interests and desires to world vision. You have much to give the world. Your power to make changes is enormous, possibly through politics and statesmanship. You will not be swayed. Selfish desires, stubbornness, and the wish to control can be turned into a positive drive to accomplish good deeds. You are likely to be significant in some way of making the world a better place.
When your Moon moves into Leo in your PROGRESSED Chart, it will bring an unconscious need to be admired and appreciated–and a conscious need for romance and affection. Your need to love and be loved is a healthy emotional drive which motivates you to continued self awareness and self-improvement efforts. You may occasionally have secret doubts about your own self worth, often interspersed with feelings of invincible superiority. It is the latter side that you are likely to show the public in order to protect your emotional vulnerability. You will be extremely romantic and sexual during this cycle, and intimate relationships are essential to your feeling of well-being. You can be extremely loving and self-sacrificing in romantic relationships, but heaven help the partner who should fail to show appreciation. If a relationship should become stale and routine, you are likely to seek a new conquest. Bright colors will appeal to you, as will sunshiny days. You like to feel bright, enthusiastic and up-beat. When you have a down day, you will hide away and “lick your wounds” in secret. You must avoid alcohol and other drugs to elevate your mood–they could prove to be too effective, with the risk of addiction. Leadership roles come easy to you, and you do make a good boss. You may change jobs often, for the grass will always look a little greener on the other side of the fence. You are a sucker for flattery and a little praise will make your day. You will want your home to be a show place, and you want your family to be at their best. You do need to watch for tendencies toward inconsistency and stubbornness.
PROGRESSED MOON IN 5TH 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. In this house in the Progressed Chart however, any new beginnings made during the Moon’s period in house four will be structured and solidified in terms of emotion, children, creativity, friendships, and speculation. It will be a good time to concentrate upon personal artistic and aesthetic endeavors.
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: CANCER SUN AND LEO MOON–Your Cancer Sun and Leo Moon blend provides the foundation for developing a strong personality when it is found in the Progressed chart. The Sun is ruler of Leo, your Moon-sign, and the Moon is ruler of Cancer, your Sun-sign, thus creating a strong reciprocal bond. Your appearance of pride and self worth is well founded and will be readily apparent to others. Your understanding of Self could be gained quite easily, and there will be a sense of emotional rightness as the Sun illuminates the emotional Moon. The Moon’s emotions will soften the glaring action of the Sun during this life cycle, and there will be emotional social poise in your life as well.
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 29th degree of an approximate thirty-year life-cycle in the sign, Cancer. You could have, roughly, 02 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN CANCER WITH NATAL MERCURY IN TAURUS–Mercury in the sign of Taurus in the NATAL Chart imprints you with much practical common sense. This gives you great powers of concentration so that you are able to ignore that with which you don’t want to be bothered. You dislike arguments and disharmony, but will fight to protect your security and financial interests. Though you may be slow to grasp new concepts or learn new skills, you are patient and persevering and can be quite stubborn. You will succeed, mainly because you have the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. You also have the ability to convey your ideas through artistic directions and art forms. You will have an interest in all the aspects of real estate and personal property. Your mind will work well at home, and you are likely to have an office there. Business relationships can be good, but you will need to keep your stubborn streak under control. This also applies to love, romance and personal relationships, which are likely to have intellectual and materialistic overtones. You will enjoy discussions regarding domestic interests, but will need to watch out for a tendency toward intellectual superiority and stubbornness during this time.
Before Mercury progressed to Cancer, Mercury progressed into Gemini from the sign Taurus, which added some airy excitement and flighty intellectualism to the somewhat stolid personality of the Taurus imprints. You would have become more talkative and more enthusiastic, but also less dependable.
When Mercury moves into the sign Cancer in the PROGRESSED Chart, unconscious desires can cause you to look at some facts and ignore others. This can interfere with objective thinking and cause prejudice. During this life cycle, your mind will be influenced by deep-seated emotional patterns. Most of your mental processes can occur on a subconscious level. You are very sensitive, and may have a tendency to believe that everything done or said is directed toward you, personally. You can be overly influenced by the attitudes and opinions of others. The message here and now is to think for yourself, and practice getting YOU out of the center of the universe. Leave the emotional struggles behind you now, and just enjoy life. This life cycle is traditionally when most people “retire” from their professional activities, and this progression of Cancer certainly can enhance your desire to do that. All of your relationships will have a strong emotional base, and should be comfortable and rewarding by this time. You will need love and romance so hang onto all you have. Keep communications open and honest. Seek spiritual guidance and use it well, and constantly practice bringing the subconscious out into your conscious thinking.
PROGRESSED MERCURY IN 4TH 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. The fourth house position in the Progressed chart indicates that much of your thinking and learning will happen in your home. Even your business may be conducted from the home, as that is where the practical side of your mind is likely to be the most effective during this time. You may collect a large home library as your intellectual pursuits will be many. Your desire to constantly improve on your intellectual environment now may cause you to move often, possibly in mobile homes or trailers. Your communications center will revolve around your telephone, but you may choose a nomadic type of life while this progression is in force.
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 7th degree of an approximate thirty year life-cycle in the sign, Cancer. You have, roughly, 24 years left in this cycle.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN CANCER WITH NATAL VENUS IN TAURUS–When Venus is in Taurus in the NATAL Chart, stability in love and emotional security are important to you. You are loyal to those you love, but you can be possessive and jealous if your emotional security should be threatened. You like physical contact with your loved one, but you are sensual in a passive way. You prefer to attract rather than to pursue. You enjoy being pampered with a good meal, good wine, and other sensual delights. You can be a wonderful lover. You are attentive to the comfort and enjoyment of the one you love. You love comfort, luxury, beautiful surroundings, good food, and opulence in general. Consequently, the money that makes these things possible is extremely important to you. Personal beauty is also important to you, and you will try to make yourself as attractive and youthful as possible. You feel a kinship with the earth, and enjoy the material things thereof. You have a deep appreciation for all things beautiful and artistic. You are tremendously responsive to beauty and physical appearances, and you also appreciate physical attractiveness in others.
The Gemini life cycle of Venus would have added some excitement but less stability to relationships.
When Venus moves into the sign Cancer in the PROGRESSED Chart, it brings deep sensitivity into all your romantic feelings. You will be extremely emotional and your feelings will be easily hurt. You will not handle criticism well, whether it be real or imagined, for you will tend to internalize everything said to you and take it personally. During this period, your moods will be fluctuating and unpredictable, but you could try to hide behind a dignified exterior. Your intuition will be heightened, and you will pick up on the feelings of those around you. For that reason, you need to associate with upbeat individuals who are optimistic and enthusiastic about life. Romantic relationships will be extremely important to you during this life cycle. You will need constant reassurance and emotional support, and you will work hard to make all your relationships work. You will crave both financial and emotional security, and could seek that security in marriage as well as in your career. Venus in Cancer produces the mothers of the world, both male and female. You will want your home to be the center of social activities and 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. Take time out often for healing through relaxation and meditation.
PROGRESSED VENUS IN 3RD HOUSE–Venus in the houses indicate how you express the Venus attitudes in the various areas of your life. When progressed into the third house it emphasizes an intellectual interest in artistic and cultural pursuits. This is also a pleasant Venus position for relations with neighbors and friends, short journeys, social activities, and correspondence. You are likely to have a special love for literature and poetry during this progressed position. You will communicate harmoniously, through both speech and writing, especially beautiful love letters and romantic poems.
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 05 degrees of the sign, Taurus. It takes approximately 60 years for Mars to pass through one sign in the Progressed chart. You have, roughly, 52 years left until it moves into the next Mars life-cycle.
PROGRESSED MARS IN TAURUS WITH NATAL MARS IN PISCES–When Mars is in Pisces in the NATAL Chart the personality will be rather “laid back” and relaxed. There is a tendency to delay the Mars action, and all decisions can be tempered by the mystery of the subconscious mind. You may tend to act basically from your emotions, and the ambitions are likely to be drawn toward the human services kinds of work. You will probably be most comfortable working in large institutions such as hospitals.
When Mars is in Taurus in the PROGRESSED Chart, it brings the personality practical qualities: ambition, quick wit, foresight, and good organizational and managerial ability. You are determined and consistent where self-interest is concerned and are likely to have good earning ability. You are also likely to enjoy your occupation, and carry it through with tact and diplomacy. However you will not tolerate much opposition, and need to beware of temper and “bull-headedness”.
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 SAGITTARIUS WITH NATAL JUPITER IN CAPRICORN–This is only possible if Jupiter was only slightly into Capricorn in your Natal Chart. It could enter Sagittarius through Retrograde motion.
Jupiter in the signs influences your ethical, religious, and philosophical standards and beliefs, and how you may express these interests. In Capricorn in the NATAL Chart, Jupiter imprints the personality with the rather traditional, conservative values concerning religion, politics, education, and moral conduct. You have a strong drive for power and status and have the ambition, patience, and managerial ability to attain great wealth. You will exercise prudence, caution, and mature judgment, but may be lacking in imagination, creativity, and the ability to innovate. Avoid a self-serving attitude, and remember that others may be led more easily than driven.
When Jupiter moves into Sagittarius in the PROGRESSED Chart, the focus is on love of philosophy, religion, education, travel, and foreign cultures. It will bring tendencies toward good fortune and general success. You are likely to have far-reaching metaphysical thoughts, seeking that ultimate Creative Force by which to guide your life. During this period, you are likely to receive recognition for study in the psychic and the occult, and you may have prophetic insights into the future. Avoid narrow-minded views, and avoid pressure upon others to conform to your ideas. Seek positive directions through prayer and meditation.
PROGRESSED JUPITER IN 8TH HOUSE–Jupiter in the houses indicates the departments of life and types of activity through which you express your religious, philosophical, and educational ideas. In the eight house progression, good fortune could come through inheritance, insurance, or joint finances. You may be attracted to such businesses as funeral homes, tax accounting, and corporate fund-raising. There will be a strong interest in life after death. You are likely to become interested in spiritualism, and to become aware that you possess telepathic powers while this progression is in effect.
PROGRESSED SATURN IN CAPRICORN WITH NATAL SATURN IN CAPRICORN–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.
Saturn in the signs indicates the ways in which you must accept responsibility and develop maturity and discipline. In the sign Capricorn in the NATAL Chart, Saturn will imprint the personality with strong ambitions for worldly power, status, and authority. You feel compelled to achieve in your career, and mainly for very practical reasons. You probably began the struggle early in life, and you know that success has its price. You are a good organizer, are able to accept and carry out orders, and expect the same from those who may work for you. When you reach the top (and you probably will) you will seek to help others–to help themselves. You probably have a strong sense of family pride and honor, expecting and receiving respect from your community. You should avoid letting your desire for status get out of hand, as well as a tendency to get rigid in your attitudes and beliefs.
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 LEO WITH NATAL URANUS 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.
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. With Uranus in the sign Leo in the NATAL Chart, the personality is imprinted with the need for freedom in the areas of love and romance. Your ideas about courtship and sex may be somewhat untraditional and you are likely to believe in free love. You are impulsive in all your relationships, and you could possibly have more than one at a time. You also have strong willpower and creativity in arts and sciences, and leadership in these areas is a given.
PROGRESSED URANUS IN 5TH HOUSE–Uranus in the houses indicates the types of activities through which you express your urge toward freedom and individuality. In the fifth house of the Progressed Chart, the focus is on sex and romance. You are likely to be unconventional in your sexual ideas and could have some rather sudden and unusual romantic involvements. You can be secretive and impulsive in your love affairs, but still vulnerable to scandal during this time. Your individuality can be positively expressed through the arts, and this could provide ways for you to sublimate your sexual urges. You may also simply withdraw from people now, for every encounter produces challenges. However, this could include avoiding the people who could be right for you, and you could be avoiding experiences that are necessary to your development at this time. The key is to be “cautiously” open and trusting.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN SCORPIO WITH NATAL NEPTUNE IN SCORPIO–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 IN SCORPIO IN 1970-NEXT POSSIBLE IN YEAR 2133–Neptune in the signs manifests more historical and generational influences than personal. It indicates the kind of cultural expression shown by the imaginative and creative faculties of mankind over a given period of time. Your personal responses to Neptune in Scorpio in the NATAL Chart are likely to be in sexual areas and psychological areas of escape. Both the influences of the planet Neptune and the sign Scorpio are dual in nature: material and spiritual. It is difficult to function in both levels at the same time, and often at some time in the life, a metamorphosis is experienced when the philosophical and spiritual influences sublimate the materialistic.
PROGRESSED NEPTUNE IN 6TH HOUSE–Neptune in the houses indicates the ways in which you may express your mystical potential–your ability to visualize. Progressed into the sixth house, it emphasizes work and services performed in a spiritual way. You are likely to have an intuitive understanding of animals and feel the urge to care for pets. You will have interests in spiritual healing, homeopathic medicine, health foods, and other natural forms of healing during this time. For yourself, drugs, alcohol, and all unnatural forms of medication should be avoided. Your natural visualization is powerful enough, and you should avoid all tendencies to exaggerate your intuitive visions. Seek positive spiritual direction for the use of these gifts.
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN VIRGO WITH NATAL PLUTO IN VIRGO–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.
1957-1972. NEXT POSSIBLE, YEAR 2220. Pluto in the signs is also historical and generational, but on the personal level it indicates permanent change. In Virgo in the NATAL Chart, it deals with work, health, and the practical application of technology. You are very organized and picky about details, especially where your work is concerned, and can be very capable of working alone. The areas of sex, drugs, and health are indicated as most likely areas for permanent change in your life. Seek guidance through prayer and meditation, striving to bring the feelings up from the subconscious into the conscious and practice good health maintenance.
When Pluto is still in Virgo in the PROGRESSED chart, the natal influences are enhanced and reinforced. The focus for regeneration is more likely to be outward rather than inward, and you may have more concerns about social and environmental issues. Do not neglect your own regeneration efforts, but keep practicing a healthy lifestyle. If Pluto is in this position in your Progressed chart, these influences will be with you for the rest of your life.
PROGRESSED PLUTO IN 5TH HOUSE–Pluto in the houses indicates in which departments of life you need to exercise conscious creative willpower to regenerate yourself and your surroundings. In the fifth house of the Progressed Chart, the focus is on creative power as expressed through art, love involvements, and children. Your spiritual regeneration will take place through love, and your artistic expression is likely to be inspired from higher levels of consciousness. You need to watch for tendencies to dominate or to be dominated by romantic partner, and for tendencies toward sexual excesses. Children born when these influences are in force are likely to be very gifted. Avoid the excessive use of alcohol and drugs.
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 SUN TRINE NEPTUNE–This aspect bestows emotional intuition which is often expressed in empathy and understanding. When it is in the Progressed Chart, you may find your intuitive ability expressed through art, music, religion, philosophy, and/or mysticism. You could possess a quality of universal love that transcends the personal, sexual, and physical outlets for this emotion. In its highest form of usage, it could spiritually uplift and heal those who come in contact with you during this progression. The practical side can give you insights into business and stock market investments. You need to keep this gift practical, and not be only a visionary dreamer.
PROGRESSED SUN SEXTILE MARS–This aspect in the Progressed Chart brings high energy and enhances your faith in your own ability. It provides an excellent time for accomplishing all kinds of work and physical activity. You can work well with others during this time, but you will be assertive and self-confident. It could bring opportunities for leadership, as well. The energies need to be used constructively, or accidents could happen now.
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 a year in the future, that is about a year after the date given on the cover page of this report.
PROGRESSED MOON CONJUNCT URANUS–This aspect can emphasize the personality’s need for individuality, often accompanied by nervous anxiety and a sense of urgency. When found in the Progressed Chart, feelings of independence are stimulated, and the emotions are “electric”. You will find much ingenuity and inspiration for doing things in unique ways. With Uranus, you need to expect the unexpected, and will have a tendency to be impulsive. Practice patience and strive for serenity and calm during this period.
PROGRESSED VENUS TRINE NEPTUNE–This is a pleasant aspect, but not very conducive to getting things done. During this progressed aspect, you are likely to spend more time in fantasy and daydreams than working in the everyday world. However, it is an excellent time for creative activity that has to develop completely in the mind before being expressed in physical form. Your rich imagination is at work. The aspect also enables you to treat people with great compassion and tenderness, for you are able to understand what they feel and think. You are endowed with unselfish and spiritual love. It could also be a time when you could meet a spiritual “soul-mate”–or, at the least, a very pleasant relationship that is only a romantic interlude. Or if you are already involved, it could mean a renewal of the relationship.
Report Order FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions related to Report Orders
WHAT IF MY ORDER DOESN’T ARRIVE WITHIN 24 HOURS?
Reports are generally delivered within 24 hours of order placement, or if there were missing details, within 24 hours of the receipt of full information needed to generate the report(s). Occasionally, an order might arrive a little late if there was an unexpected influx of orders, for example, a power outage, etc.
However, if 24 hours have passed and you don’t find an email from Kristen – Cafe Astrology (reports @cafeastrology.com) in your inbox or spam folder, then please write and let Kristen know. Please understand that we make every effort to send your order, and if this is impossible, you will receive a refund.
Some people have problems with email delivery, particularly with emails that have attachments. In these cases, we can put the report(s) in a secure place online for download. If you prefer this method regardless, write Kristen an email with the request or add the request in the notes with your order placement.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY REPORT IF I WASN’T ASKED FOR MY EMAIL ADDRESS?
By default, Kristen sends report orders to the email address associated with Paypal. That’s the email that comes in with your payment and order details. You can specify another email address if you’d like, but keep in mind that a Paypal receipt email is automatically sent to the customer as soon as payment is made, and that email will go to the email address registered with Paypal.
SHOULD I USE 12 PM FOR AN UNKNOWN BIRTH TIME?
No, you should specify that the birth time is unknown rather than guess it so that the report can be created specifically for unknown birth times.
Although unknown birth time reports can be a little shorter than the reports with known birth times, they only include information that is known. Most importantly, the ambiguous information is excluded from the report.
Some people feel that they will get more for their money if they guess at the birth time, as they assume that more interpretations in the reports are better. However, it’s much better to have a shorter report with accurate interpretations than a longer report with a mix of accurate and inaccurate interpretations! In this case, less is definitely more.
CAN I ORDER A SOLAR RETURN (OR OTHER FORECAST REPORT) FOR A YEAR IN THE FUTURE/PAST?
Yes, absolutely. The start date of a report can be any date in the past or the future.
In the case of a Solar Return, the start date will be on or in the two days surrounding the birth month and day due to the nature of this type of forecasting technique, but the year of the report can be any year in the future or past.
In the case of the Time Line report, the software only allows the start date to be the first of any given month, for example, May 1st, 2017.
DO I NEED TO PAY WITH A PAYPAL BALANCE TO PLACE AN ORDER?
No, the shopping cart used on the site is run by Paypal, but all the usual payment options are included so that you can use credit cards, debit cards, and the like. There are different shopping cart technologies available to sellers, and Cafe Astrology has selected the Paypal shopping cart as its solution. All payment details are sent to Paypal and not to Cafe Astrology. Paypal sends Cafe Astrology an email with each order that lists the order details and email address, not any payment information. We are not set up as a merchant at this time.
WHY ARE THE PLANETS’ TRANSITS OF THE HOUSES IN MY REPORT NOT THE SAME AS THOSE OF YOUR HOROSCOPES?
Reports are based on your birth time, while horoscopes are based on solar charts. A solar chart places the Sun’s sign on the Ascendant, and most people don’t have the same Sun and Ascendant in their natal charts. While a solar chart is a valid chart and certainly has its merits, the natal chart should be the first you look at.
WHICH HOUSE SYSTEM DO YOU USE?
For reports, the default house system used is Placidus. However, you can request another house system for your order (example, Koch, Equal, Whole Sign, etc.).
WHY DO MY RESULTS DIFFER FROM THOSE FROM OTHER SOURCES?
It’s important to note that there are many different valid methods for arriving at various astrology calculations, including the Zodiac (Sidereal or Tropical), system of houses used, method of progressing the houses in the case of progressions, use of current or birth location for certain forecasting techniques, and many more. It’s rare that an astrology software program is making wrong calculations. Typically, discrepancies have to do with different systems and not about one or the other being “wrong.” When the Ascendant differs, it’s usually about an ambiguous time zone since we must use the time zone that was in effect at the time of birth and historical time zone information is not perfect. It is simply not true that any one particular software program has every historical time zone correct, although many efforts are made to get them right.
If you receive unexpected results, please send an email to Kristen who can look into the matter and explain the reasons for it, such as an ambiguous time zone or a particular calculation method. It’s important to provide as many details as possible.
WHY IS THE DATE OF MY SOLAR RETURN NOT THE SAME AS MY BIRTHDAY?
The Solar Return chart is drawn for the date and time of the return of the Sun to its exact position at birth, and not to the birthday itself. The Sun returns to its birth position once a year on or near the day of birth, and rarely coincides with the time of birth. For example, if my birthday is September 2nd, 1970 @ 5:00 PM, my Solar Return could be September 1st, 2016, @ 4:24 AM one year, September 2nd, 2017, @ 1:22 AM the next, and so forth. If the birth data is entered correctly on the report, you can expect the Solar Return date and time to be accurate.
HOW CAN I GET MY REPORT ORDER QUICKLY?
Report orders are promised within approximately 24 hours from the time of order placement and complete information required to create the report. Kristen sends out reports by email and she is at the report computer typically eight hours a day. Because orders and responses come in from all around the world at all hours of the day and night, rush orders are not possible. However, to prevent delays, making certain that you’ve included all information requested and that it’s accurate will prevent the need for email back and forths that will cause delays.
Typically orders are emailed out within 12 hours or so, but they do sometimes come closer to 24 hours. The most common reason is a sudden influx of orders. There are times when more than the usual number of orders come in and it takes much longer to complete orders.
WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY REPORT?
Within 24 hours of order placement, you should receive an email from Kristen, either as a request for further information or clarification if there is missing/unclear information or with a report attachment. If the information is incomplete, Kristen will request it from you and you will receive your order within 24 hours of receipt of the full information necessary to create your report.
DO I HAVE TO ENTER MY BIRTH DATA FOR EACH REPORT THAT I WANT TO ORDER?
If you are buying more than one report in one order, you can enter birth information only once if you prefer. However, it’s important to note that some reports require different or additional information, so be sure to supply all that is needed to create your reports.
