Does anyone have a link they would share? I'm beginning to take the time to try to understand my transits. Thank ya

Any other links, tips, opinions that will help me and others with this lesson are also appreciated.

I think it's great to be able to read transits and understand them.

Planets move at different paces. I think Mercury is the fastest moving planet. Or is it Venus? Slow moving planets are the external ones: Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto. They stay on one degree for weeks...

Mercury is the fastest.

Sun moves a degree a day.

You need to get an ephemeris so you can watch the planets transit.

Here is a free one online: http://www.findyourfate.com/astrology/ephemeris/1961.html

To look up any year, just type the year in the URL. For example, where you see 1961, type in the year you're interested in.

Lady Neptune, how about the moon though? It goes through a sign in 2 to 3 days, which means it moves through 1 degree in a few hours...

The moon isn't a planet.

Hellllo Yes, someone posted some info for me when I asked about Pluto, which just began transiting Capricorn, when I asked about how long it would take to move 15 or so degrees. I was all worried about how soon Pluto would hit my AC and Moon in Capricorn. Turns out 15 or so degrees takes close to 8 years so it won't be anytime soon that I'll have to worry about that transit.

I do understand that planets closer to the sun move faster. I take that out of my dusty 4th grade science folder from time to time so it stays a bit in the front of the memory. As far as translating that to degrees in charts... well, I lost most of my math folders so....

Thanks for starting off the discussion all, and thank you very much for the ephemeris link. I haven't checked it yet, but I will.
I guess the problem is that I don't know the year I am really looking for so I would have to check the next 10 or so?
I thought there might be an astrological reference. I might actually have one and not understand how to translate the information to what I'm trying to figure out.

I need a Transits for Dummies guide.

And how long does it take for your moon to "progress"? It seems to do that rather quickly too.

Hi Mel

Run your Progressed chart at astro.com. Down at the grid in the corner it lists how fast your progressed Moon is going -- for instance, right now my pMoon is zipping along at 14 deg/yr and 71'/mo

The tMoon moves a degree approx every two hours.

Now when you say how long does it take a planet to move a degree, do you want the average (which includes retro cycles) or just general forward motion??

Just as a side note, I made a little chart awhile back and there's a pattern with Neptune and Pluto rx's -- they seem to move ahead 5, back 3 then ahead 5 then back 3.....

This is becoming my favorite ephemeris:

You can change months with the banner across the top, and the retros are in RED!! I like that

"The moon isn't a planet. "

Technically, for astronomers, the moon is not a planet, it is a satellite of the sun. However, I thought for astrologers, the moon was a planet, as well as a luminary, like the sun. Please correct me if I am wrong.

You may be right...In astrology they call the sun and moon the "luminaries" or the "lights," so I *think* a lot of astrologers don't technically consider them planets either, but I don't know...


A progressed moon changes roughly every 2 years.

Zala- I skimmed over the Astro.com website and I didn't see a link to calculate an individual's Progressed chart, only Natals. I'd be grateful if you could provide me with the link.

Belage- To astronomers and non-astronomers alike, the Moon is not a satellite of the Sun, it is a satellite of the Earth.

Thanks, Scorpionic Web. I actually meant to say the earth.

I see what Zala is talking about on astro.com and I am noticing that there are a quite a bit or Rx going on, highlighting how many degrees they will Rx, which can come very handy if one wants to convert the degrees into time(years/months, etc). Cool.

and, if approx. 15 degrees equals approx 8 years for Pluto, it means that I can calculate how long it will take for tPluto to hit my SN for example. Cool.

Hi Zala, sorry about my lame reply. I was in a mood. I did want the average but I was too cloudy to fully consider your points and I didn't even answer your question. I plan to look at my chart and the info for how fast the moon is moving right now as you said. If you or anyone else does have a link to a chart with the average time it takes for each planet, that would be helpful. I just want an idea so I can start to wrap my mind around the concepts.
Thanks for teaching me.

Ok, I see the moon time

So, like the moon changes sign every couple days.... the moon changes progressed sign every couple years.

Am I right? Sounds right. I should be able to remember that.

And Belage and Zala, I still haven't checked the ephemeris links yet but I will at some point.

What's up with Al Gore up there on the banner? hehe I just noticed him.

I would also like to know...

if my birth place is an hour ahead (timezonewise) then if it says my transit will hit exact at 11:15am then does that mean it will hit my birthplace at that time and I should adjust the time to reflect the time it would be HERE when it hits the east coast at 11:15 am (10:15am here)?

re post query ..
easiest thing might be to download one of the freebie astrology computer applications ..
and work out the planetary movements from that .. ..

e.g.'s
chiron and pluto are probably the two most inconsistent .. due to their eliptical orbits ..
i.e. they appear .. ( from earth ) .. to slow down and speed up quite a bit ..
uranus appears to be fairly consistent .. moving direct x number of degrees then retograding y number of degrees ..
neptune is similar ..

i once tried to figure .. from an astrological p.o.v. ..
as to why x-mas and new years for me usually felt the pits ( relatively speaking )
turns out i usually get nasty venus and mars transits around nov. or dec .. then jan or feb. ..
the months change every so-many years ..
( i didn't keep any notes regarding that investigation .. so don't know the actual yearly cycle )

I do. I have astro.com set to show the time where I am in Minnesota, not my birthplace in California. At the very bottom of the "Personal Daily Horoscope" descriptions there's a hyperlink that says Change Reference Place. Click on that and choose your new location. If you were going to be in Hawaii with a new lover, you might want to check when a Venus or Mars aspect was exact for you there, so you could change the reference place to Hawaii

PS: Love your book-idea "Transits for Dummies"
