3 Major Techniques in Astrology Forecasting

Astrology and Forecasting

A central principle of astrology is the belief that the individual, Earth, and its environment as an interconnected entity are in symmetry or in harmony with the heavens. So, the cycles of heavenly or celestial changes or phenomena are therefore said to be reflective (not causative) of similar cycles of change and events in the human world and within the individual.

Thru the use of a system of horoscopes, a visual representation or map of the heavens, for a specific moment in time, one can predict aspects of an individual's personality or life history or destiny based on the inherent meaning, the 'language' or symbols underlying the positions of the sun, moon, and other planetary objects at the time of their birth.

3 Major Astrology Forecasting Techniques

In astrology, there are a variety of techniques to forecast the future of an individual. Most astrologers used these 3 major techniques, namely:

1. Astrological Progressions. In astrology, these are techniques used in forecasting future trends and developments. It involves a method of “progressing” the horoscope of a particular individual forward from the moment of the birth or beginning of the subject into the future. In this technique, one sees the planets, Ascendant, and Midheaven to have changed position in the progressed chart and takes a particular attention to changes of zodiac signs and houses, and to the angles or aspects the progressed planets form with the original natal chart.

There are two main forms of progression: the day-for-a-year progression or known as a secondary progression; and the a-degree-for-a-year progression or solar arc progression.

Secondary Progression

Secondary progression is the most popular form of progression. It is said to provide insight into the unfolding of our unique personalities over time. With this technique, one day is added to the person's birth date for each year of a person's life (the day-for-a-year method).

For example, if a person born on April 18, 1975 wants to know what the person will face around his 37th birthday (2012), one will draw up the person’s progressed chart for 2012 based on the progressed positions of the Sun, the Moon, and the planets on May 25, 1975 (as 2012 – 1975 = 37 years, so 37 days is added to the person's birth date, which is April 18 + 37 days = May 25).

According to this system, the patterns and influences formed 37 days after the person's birth date are considered to indicate potential tendencies and trends for the person's 37th year of life.

2. Astrological Transit. Basically, transits are simply the ongoing movements of the planets across the sky. Astrological transits involve the interpretation of the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope of a particular individual.

Considered to be the most intuitively obvious of the 3 major Astrology Forecasting techniques (transits, progressions, and returns) to understand, in transits, one pays particular attention to changes of sign, or house, and to the aspects or angles the transiting planets make to the "moment in time" planets of a natal chart for an event, entity or person. As the planets move or transit, they form aspect with each other usually limited to an orb of one degree either side of the natal planet, and this also creates meaningful cosmic dynamics.

3. Return. A return is a chart drawn for the moment in time a transiting natal planet returns to the exact position point in the sky that it occupied at the moment of a person's birth after completing a full orbit through the zodiac. The return of the natal planet, which has completed a whole circuit of the sky, signifies that a new cycle in the person's life is beginning.

A chart calculated for the exact moment when the Sun returns to its natal position (within 2 days of one's birthday) is called Solar Return chart.

The solar return chart occurs once a year, every 365 days, at about the time of one's birthday, occurring the day before, of, or after the birth date. It portrays inner and outer events, a preview of coming events for the new solar year.

Similarly, a chart constructed for the exact moment the Moon will return to the position it had at birth approximately once a month is called Lunar Return chart.

The lunar return chart occurs about once a month, as moon returns about every 28.5 days giving 13 LUNAR RETURNS a year. This is used to predict inner and outer events for the coming month from the perspective of one's moods, feelings, emotions, domestic life, security and survival.
