This is the definitive work on transiting planets (everyday movement), and the planetary aspects at the time of one’s birth, as shown in one’s birth chart. Major transits and aspects are conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines and oppositions that occur between Sun, Moon and all planets to each planet in the natal chart, one’s ascendant (identity), and the midheaven (the journey of what one makes of oneself and one of the greatest 2 1/2 year transits in the Midheaven 10th house where one has the greatest opportunity to act upon one’s uniqueness, Saturn’s transit).
This is not a book that one reads from cover to cover. It is a reference book wherein one looks up specific aspects in one’s personal chart, and those transits that are aspecting one’s individual planetary aspects at time of birth. I’ve been using this book for 25 years and have gone through three of them. I have one in every room of the house because I am always doing research. This is the first book I give to each of my students so that they can begin researching who it is that they really are.
If one has relocated from place of birth, then one can see the change in location, and the re-placement of the energy fields, the houses of one’s chart, which will definite change the direction of one’s life.
I have an astrological program I use to print my own daily chart for research notes and referral. I also use 5 x 8 cards to paraphrase what is occurring and what is emerging on the near horizon to prepare me for what is coming up so that it will not be a surprise to me. I prepare my inner being, understanding what difficulties I must face for greater personal strength.
Life Cycles for the Living covers the meaning in one’s life and major transits that open new doors and vistas, bringing the necessary tests one is to pass to be able to move on to a higher level of greater understanding. When one has studied the information one understands the steps one must take for better success. One learns how the movements of the Sun, Moon and the other planets affects one every day, one’s moods.
When the Moon is in the Earth signs of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, these are times when one can accomplish a lot of work in those areas of one’s life for 2 1/2 days, that one can’t accomplish at other times. These are times to take advantage of necessary hard work in whatever one needs to accomplish.
It is the planetary energies that move through each house of one’s chart every day (Sun), then moves to the next sign and so on that creates our seasons as the Earth revolves around the Sun. Mercury (one’s communications, expression and travels, Venus (one’s values), Mars (one’s energy applied to accomplish), Jupiter (moves through each sign for one year, brings good things into our lives, but we have to be careful not to over-expand in each area of our lives, for if we do, we will bring trouble meeting the demands when Jupiter leaves the astrological house and moves to the next astrological house. Right now Jupiter is at 12 degrees Gemini house of siblings and one’s environ, and will move out of Gemini in a couple of months into the house of Cancer, polarity Capricorn). When we look at each house, we always look at its polarity sign, the yoga (relationship of yin/yang) that affects each of us individually and collectively.
Saturn’s 2 1/2 year sojourn in each sign is the area where we will be tested the greatest and made to work the hardest to pass the test required in each sector of our lives (Saturn is necessary self-discipline to use one’s tools and to apply those tools, and gain new tools (inner strengths) for greatest maturity and accomplishment). Saturn is in the 8th house of Scorpio now for two more years. It is retrograde now, so it is going over the past six months or so. Retrograde means that we will be reviewing something in that area of our lives. Scorpio is the house of debt, taxes, inheritances, sex, power and money, and what we share with others.
Uranus spends seven years in each house and brings unexpected changes in the house it is transiting (when Jupiter or Uranus aspect each other, profound and wonderful things unfold).
Neptune spends 14 years in each house away from the aspect it made when one was born. Neptune washes away anything that Saturn (one’s personal structuring) has built up. Right now Neptune is in the sign that it rules, Pisces. It is the lord of the 12th house of Pisces, things hidden, the unconscious, things we don’t like to face like people in prison or hospitals, the depths of the ocean, things deep in the ground like oil, gold, gems, minerals, and things dug up by archeologists. The polarity of Pisces is Virgo: The Virgin Jesus was born during the age of Pisces and this is his sign, the sign of the Fish that Christians use. Jesus was born of a Virgin. Can your 3rd eye see the symbolic connection? The international best seller Bloodline of the Holy Grail features the hidden lineage of Jesus by Laurence Gardner, an internationally known sovereign and chivalric genealogist, that many of you may have already read. Neptune washes aware the unnecessary and brings what we really need.
Then we have the planetary force of Pluto in Capricorn. Capricorn rules the 10th house and it is placed someplace in your own chart. Its transit varies, and has spent up to 30 years destroying something that is no longer necessary so that something better can be rebuilt.
All of these energies and their effects upon individuals, towns, cities, nations have been documented by specialist astrologers.
I have studied the scriptures well, studied astrology well, if you are an astrologer and have studied the scriptures well, you will recognize the astrological symbolisms upon which all religions have their foundation.
Because Capricorn rules the structure of things, government, businesses, and parents were will continue to see vast changes in the structure of things as we have known them. You as an individual have this energy within and you too are being moved from within by this force, to change things in your own life. Pluto is a slow moving energy therefore its changes are not immediate but occur over many years. When Pluto moves out of Capricorn, it is then that you will be able to look back and see the great transformation and regeneration to a new level of being in the areas of your astrological chart where this energy is working within your own life and within societies.
This is very basic information. One’s world will open to a new and higher level if one began studying this information one-day-at-a-time for greater practical and spiritual understanding of one’s personal life and events in life.
