The progressed Sun moves about one degree per year, and shows how you mature and grow as a person, and how you change as you get older. The impact of a progressed Sun aspect can last for about one year before and after the aspect goes exact.
Wouldn't it be great if you could look at any natal chart (yours or someone else's) and quickly see what the most important components of personality and general life experiences are? That's how it's done. First, you need a natal chart. Let's use yours as an example, if you don't have it available, here is my simple and easy-to-use natal chart calculator.
Keep in mind that this calculator uses the actual size and location of the constellations known as sidereal astrology. Be aware that some of your signs are different, please see this short article explaining it in detail for more information on zodiac signs Now let's start. There are three main components to any astrological chart: the houses, the signs, and the planets.
The houses represent the heavens at the time of your birth. More precisely, the ecliptic, that is the way the planets move in the sky. The houses form the skeleton of the horoscope and are always in the same place for everyone.
If you use today, the far left part of the chart represents the eastern horizon, also known as the ascendant or ascendant. This is the beginning of the diagram, and the houses start here. Start with the 1st house moving counterclockwise to the 12th. (Note that astrologers use different house systems.
So the ascendant could be somewhere in the 1st house, or you may notice that the houses are in The system we use today and what my calculator uses is called the same house system that divides the ecliptic into 12 equal segments starting from the ascendant. You can use any system you prefer.) Directly opposite the ascendant is the descendant who, as you can imagine, is the western horizon or attitude.
The upper part of the diagram represents the highest part of the ecliptic in the sky, and the lower part, what is below the horizon or the invisible sky. What do these houses mean in the diagram? Because the houses represent the areas of heaven: In astrology the houses represent the areas of life. Starting with the first house, which represents all areas of our life that have to do with ourselves such as self-image, motivations, our goals, our physical body, our appearance etc.
The second has to do with our values etc. The houses represent what we could call “areas of life”. The next component of the natal chart are the signs the ecliptic were the signs of the zodiac at the time of your birth.
Which sign rose, which set? This is where individual interpretations can begin, as we now have two components of the diagram to compare. One can say that the signs the properties of heaven show at the time of your birth. An easy way to remember what they represent is to look at them as features of life.
From the directness of Aries to the receptivity of Pisces, the zodiac signs show the qualities that come through our life component t, the planets, represent the experiences in our life. These ephemeral bodies in heaven reflect our ephemeral experiences here on earth. As always, these experiences shape our personality.
In which house a planet is located shows us in which area these life experiences occur; whatsign what characteristics these experiences consist of. With regard to our personality, the houses show which areas of life are important areas for us; the signs which features stand out in our personality. It is easiest to think of planets as the experiences of life that shape our personalities.
Now let's see what your horoscope says about you. In general analysis of the natal chart, let us begin with the most basic elements first. In other words, the most basic elements of your personality and your overall life experiences.
There are four main components of the chart that show this. Your sun, moon, ascendant, and the ascendant ruler, also known as your chart ruler. Essentially, we're looking for the house and sign positions of these four components (with the exception of the ascendant, which only shows the sign, but we'll get to that later.
Let's start with your sun and moon. These two elements represent the most basic and essential, yin) and yang, elements of yourself The sun represents your outward-looking, expressive and masculine side. While the moon represents your inward-looking, reflective, feminine side.
Together, these planets form the majority of your inner and outer personality. Along with the types of persistent experiences that affect the sun and moon in your horoscope. They are represented here by these symbols.
Once you have identified both the house and sign position of your sun and the house and sign position of your moon, use these PDFs to find out what these basic elements of your inner and outer self are Remember that the house placements show the areas of life that are important to you and important issues in your life. The sign shows the traits that result from your personality and your life experiences. Your sun represents your outer self and the moon represents your inner self.
Now let's look at your Ascendant and Chart rulers. These elements essentially represent how your life unfolds and what shapes your personality over time. You are like your sun and moon, with the exception of life path and life events which further shape your personality.
You can think of this for what you will become and which strongly represents you and your life in the horoscope. Your ascendant represents the qualities that you develop as a result of your life experiences. There is only one sign associated with it because it is always associated with the 1st house.
Your map ruler, on the other hand, is essentially the planet that rules the sign of your Ascendantis. The house and sign position the chart ruler shows a more detailed look, not just at the traits you are developing, but also at the area of life. First, let's identify your rising sign.
Look up the properties of this character using the same PDF we used earlier. Remember, these are the qualities that emerge through your overall life experiences and make you who you will become. These are very important qualities that you should develop in your life.
Now let's identify your chart ruler. Q First, you need to know which planet is ruling your ascendant's sign. Use this PDF here to get a list of rulers for each of the zodiac signs.
You may find that you have two, in which case you mark both planets as they will be equally important. Once you have identified your chart ruler, find its house and character placement, just like you did with the Sun and Moon. Use the same PDFs we used before to identify which areas of life and traits shape your personality over time Chart Ruler essentially represents you in the horoscope and what is being developed.
At this point in your analysis you have uncovered the four most basic elements of the natal chart. Analyzing and understanding these four components alone will add to a great understanding of yourself and your outstanding life experiences. You can apply the same process to any person's diagram.
For those of you who wish to take the analysis further, make sure to keep the key associations down look at the form between these four components and other planets in the natal chart. These are called aspects. The aspects can either be found on the inside of the horoscope next to the horoscope or both.
Here is a PDF with the importance of the various aspects for your further analysis. Next, you can look at the inner planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Then the middle planets: Jupiter and Saturn.
Followed by the outer planets Uranus and Neptune. And the comets: Chiron and Pluto. Analysis of their house and character placements.
Note that the personality traits become deeper and less obvious as you move further to the more distant planets. Similar to an onion where the outer layer of our personality and experience is the four main components that we covered in this article. Followed by the inner planets, the center, then the outer ones in the center of the onion. (As a side note, pay special attention to planets in 1st house as they tend to come through strong in personality and experience.) Here is a list of the major planets it shows which elements of self and experience are in life they represent.
With continued practice, focusing primarily on the four main components of the natal chart described in this article, you will be able to interpret a natal chart quickly, in a matter of minutes.
'A progressed chart shows you what's happening for you in terms of your personal development; the changes happening for you on an internal level.' .
Hi. I've spent many years doing harmony, chords, composing, arranging, and many years teaching people those things too, and one question that keeps popping up is even when people have been doing quite a bit of harmony or composing or whatever always, they always worry about which chords will develop best into which other chords. And a lot of people ask for some kind of blueprint of, well, if I had a chord progression that would always work in this situation, what would it be? And it is possible to talk about these things.
It kind of comes with a slight musical health warning because you don't always want to be stuck in some kind of straitjacket, always chord I followed by chord IV followed by chord V followed by chord I. You know, it'll sound good, but it can Give times in your musical life when you want to branch out and do something different. And of course there are a lot of exciting things to do when it comes to using chromatic chords like diminished seventh and augmented sixths and Neapolitan chords and all these things, things you can do to modulate between keys, little pops of color, like secondary dominants, all of those things that I'm not really talking about in this movie, but when you're only in one key and you're got the chords of that key on hand and you want to know how that chord works well developed? This table should help you with that.
So, let's just explore a little and see what we are Well, Chord III isn't a chord that you would use very often in general, but it's a perfectly reasonable chord, and some people always avoid Chord III like the plague , well, you don't have to, but you aren't I will likely be using Chord III throughout your piece. But in a major key, since we're talking about chord progressions in major keys, come back to another movie about minor keys. If you have chord III, the best progression from chord III is to go to chord VI.
So however you organize things, Chord III is usually best followed by Chord VI, and one reason we tell people to avoid Chord III, personally, I don't really do that, but a lot of people do 'They just say,' Avoid Chord III, it's too much trouble. ' another chord and the progression doesn't sound too good. Hence, III on VI is usually the way to deal with it.
But if you start with VI chord I mean you don't have to go through this in any order if you start with VI chord and think, 'Well, I wonder what would follow VI chord well.' Well this table suggests you can go to Chord IV. Or go to chord II.
So if I have chord VI and I go to chord IV it sounds like this. Or if I have chord VI and I go to chord II it sounds like this. So you can hear these two progressions great work well.
If you have chord IV, well you could follow that with a chord II. So I have an IV chord and I follow it with a II chord. So that's a pretty good progression.
Or if you want to do something else with IV, you could be skinny k over chord VII. Well, chord VII is often a chord that people say, 'Whatever you do, don't use a VII chord.' Don't try to use Chord III but whatever you do, 'Don't use a Chord VII' 'Actually, Chord VII is very useful, but Chord VII in general doesn't work very well in root but it works very well in its first reversal.
The reason it doesn't work well in the root position is that it's a diminished chord and sounds a little bit ugly in the root position. Put it in the first inversion, you will find that it works just fine. So if you were going to start from an IV chord and then go to a VIIb chord, you can see that that could actually work.
So, on this table, you could go from IV to VIIb to I. So IV, VIIb, I. So you see, that's a pretty good, strong progression, isn't it? So there is a VIIb.
You might want to go from II to a VIIb. So here's an II, and then a VIIb, and then possibly from there to an I. So you can see how that works just fine, too.
You can go from II to V. II, to V, and then quite often the en is followed by I. So many cadences go II-VI.
VIIb goes on to I but it also goes to V. So we could have a VIIb chord and then go to a V. And then possibly to an I.
So many different ways of dealing with these chord progressions. And of course when you get to Chord I. Well really, every chord will follow from there.
So if you just want to feel a little more confident about chord progressions, I'm not necessarily saying you need to learn this table, but you might want to play around with it and try to do all the different permutations of progressions in different keys. And then you could try going through it, so for example if I follow this top ruler how does it sound? go another way, I could go down that way, so chord III, followed by chord VI, followed by chord I, followed by chord V, followed by chord I. And I can go any other way.
So it doesn't mean you always start with a III chord, that's not the idea at all, so it's best to follow it with a VI. It's not a rule, but it usually works best. But here are other chords that you will come across all the time, and different roots that they run through, explore this table of progressions.
As its name implies, astrological progression involves a method of progressing the Horoscope forward from the moment of the birth or beginning of the subject into the future, and is most usually done for the birth or natal chart of a particular individual.
Abi, thank you for your question. Interpretation of aspects in the natal chart is much more complicated than people think, especially when the aspect lies between two personal planets. It is not possible to interpret Moon in conjunction with Venus, including the signs involved, the houses ruled by the moon, the houses ruled by Venus, and the house they live together.
Some aspects of the inner planet in the natal chart can be more than half the chart! Natal Astrology, which involves looking at how the real or symbolic movement of the planets relates to your natal chart, makes things even more complicated. Let me begin with a brief explanation of the secondary progressions and how they relate to the natal chart, and then I'll go into the details of your question. Predictive Natal Astrology uses your unique natal chart as a reference.
All other horoscopes and triggers show how the natal chart's potential unfolds over time. Progressions use the secondary movement of planets through the zodiac to show the unfolding of significant events in your life. It starts with the positions of the planets in your natal chart and then tracks how the positions of those planets have changed over time.
Every day symbolizes a year of life. For example, the positions of the planets 26 days after your birth correspond to the experiences you will have when you are 26 years old. I find that secondary progressions relate far more to internal experiences than to external events.
When I interpret secondary progressions, I see them as internal needs and evolutionary value shifts. Secondary progressions still need to be viewed in the context of the natal chart, and this can get a little tricky. First, the natal chart always takes precedence.
In the 10th house in your natal chart, the moon will always represent your career, life path, and public standing, even if you take into account the advanced moon angels signs, it indicates a change in the way how you deal with your career, life path, and public reputation, but the connection with the 10th house is constant. The houses in the progressive table do not matter; only the birth houses are important. I only look at progressive charts as part of a two-wheeler or three-wheeler around the birth chart.
That way, there is no confusion about the houses that an advanced planet rules, and you are simply interpreting the advanced planets that run through a birth house. This is what the Progressed Moon conjunct ProgressedVenus blueprint template set looks like: PROGRESSED MOON in CONJUNCT PROGRESSIVE VENUS in (Venus rules) There is a fusion and unity of intention (conjunction) between an inner need to meet your security needs and express feelings and emotions (ProgressedMoon) in a way that (related to the sign of the advanced moon) SPECIFICALLY involves the affairs of the houses ruled by the natal moon AND your inner need to express and align with your core values and experience love and appreciation (Advanced Venus) in a way that is SPECIAL (related to the Sign of Advanced Venus) the affairs of the Venu of Birth s ruled houses respond by expressing feelings and emotions (moon) and looking for love and appreciation (Venus) IN the birth house occupied by the advanced moon and Venus. And that's a simple progress-to-progress blueprint since it is a conjunction.
Both planets inhabit the same house and the energy is experienced in a single house. For example, when looking at the advanced moon square with Venus, you need to consider the houses that each advanced planet inhabits - twice - once from the perspective of the trigger and once from the perspective of the effect. Personally, I rarely pay attention to advanced aspects.
As you can see, they are extremely complicated. It takes a lot of time and energy to interpret them and I don't feel like I'm getting a good enough return on my investment. Your mileage may vary
Our Progressed Moon goes through all of the signs of the zodiac all throughout our lives. It stays in each sign for about 2 1/2 years or so. The way it works is that basically, we change our outlook, perspective and even the way we look and feel every 2 1/2 years.
Your progressed moon is about your evolved emotional needs. The progressed moon does not replace the needs of your natal moon but it brings a shorter term additional layer to your emotional needs that is present in your life for around 2-3 years. .
Your Ascendant sign, which indicates your physical body and direction life, progresses through a different sign every 16 to 20 years. This is when a huge shift in personality, look, health, physical appearance, habits and path in life happen! Your relationships will also change in a big way.
No influence, in fact using progressed charts one can assess the timing of events in the native's life, but what is not promised in the natal chart cannot be experienced by a promise in the progress chart. Progression is an important tool in Western Astrology and is used like the dasa system in Vedic astrology.
The Progressed Moon is the fastest moving planet, taking a tour of each sign for (roughly) two and a half years. Most people will get a chance to experience all the signs (via their Progressed Moon) at least twice in their lives. .
It is best to read a progressed chart by putting your natal chart on the inside of the wheel and the progressed chart on the outside. The progressed chart has the most meaning when it is used with the natal chart. Once you do that you can read it a little bit like you would read a transit chart.
Progressed Ascendant or Rising Sign represents an evolution in physical appearance, personality, relationships. As an example, when your progressed Ascendant moves into Scorpio you'll become more intense, deep, mysterious and are likely to attract more stable, sensual and attractive partners.
How to calculate your Rising sign. The Ascendant changes every two hours, which is why it's so important to have an accurate time of birth when interpreting a birth chart. .
