Re: Avi's Transits 2019

And here we arrive at what appears to be another Saturn lesson: indulge yourself, and others will restrict you. Restrict yourself and others will indulge you. Hmm... Very interesting. I may have to experiment with that myself I highly respect and value your candor. I second all of this. Very gratef...

Re: Surprisingly weak Saturn transit to Mars

Events are the universe's emergency method to compel one to have a particular kind of experience or make a particular kind of inner shift. I was considering this. Perhaps I just prematurely ruled out the possibility that I was already doing "what I needed to do" for this transit, and so nothing "le...

Re: I cannot go to many lands

Saturn and Pluto are angular for you at longitudes in between India and Iran, broadly speaking. I wouldn't go anywhere near that; that entire longitudinal slice of the world looks quite unpleasant for you. Your Jupiter-Uranus conjunction is foreground at the longitude near central China and for pret...

Surprisingly weak Saturn transit to Mars

I just under went a Saturn semisquare to natal Mars that I've been dreading for the past few months - it was exact on Feb 25 2019. Honestly, it felt like essentially nothing happened - although I'm aware it will make another 2 passes later on this year. The themes of struggle against control, compet...

Relocation considerations

Hi all, I'm planning ahead for when I eventually relocate (next few years probably). I want to move to the west coast where my natal Venus is foreground. (It's background here.) That's the primary goal. In Los Angeles, Venus is foreground by itself, 1*55' above Descendant, and I get a Mercury conjun...

But when they operate it seems clear that natal planets are important in every technique - it's the one set you never get rid of.
Wow, even for KLRs?
Using them in that context didn't occur to me.

Natal planets in Anlunars

Hi y'all,

Is it recommended to check the natal planets relative to Anlunar return angles, or do we only check transiting + solar planets?
If I had to guess, I would guess only solar planets, but I'd rather ask.

Re: Very Nasty Transits

I experienced both together last year - the Saturn conjunction to Sun peaked at the very end of 2017, and was captured partile in my SSR. Pluto was also conjunct my Mercury on and off all year, and is currently locked into my current SSR as well. I found the Pluto transit to Mercury to help dramatic...

Re: Connection through signs due to anti-thesis

Do or can anti-thesis(es) of our charts drive us to feel closer to signs that are activated [luminary, Mars, or stellium] and share a common anti-thesis? If so is it even worth noting? I think of this stuff in terms of presence/absence, which seems like a similar concept. For example, with Venus ba...

Re: Casting a Quotidian

Do angle progressions in SA in longitude (and contacts to them, etc) mean anything when contacting natal/progressed planets, or do you recommend we use only mean quotidian to determine natal/progressed planetary contacts to "progressed angles?" I didn't really pay consistent attention day to day and...

Planets surprisingly far from MC in mundo

Hi y'all, I cooked up my upcoming SLR on 12/29 in Solar Fire (Hackensack, NJ), and one look at the ecliptical view was kind of scary - Saturn and Pluto both look about 4*-5* from MC, on opposite sides. Of course, I looked at the mundoscope, and was shocked to discover that they're both just about 10...
