The Transiting Planets

Author: James A. Hamilton

The transiting Planets are always affecting us whether we choose to be conscious of their influences or not. As they pass through the succeeding houses and signs, they make aspects to other transiting and natal Planets. When a transiting Planet squares or opposes a personal natal Planet: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, & Saturn then the effects usually manifest on a noticeable level. The outer Planets: Uranus, Neptune, & Pluto often serve as catalysts for change. They actually serve to ignite your personal natal Planets by aspect and their effects may linger for quite some time.

Rather than viewing Astrology in a passive manner (the Planets affect me and I am helpless to their influences) Instead try taking an active approach (The transiting Planets are affecting me but it is my responsibility to provide the appropriate outlets for these energies otherwise I am at their mercy) There are no preordained outcomes for transiting influences...they manifest in accordance to pre-existing environmental circumstances which are within your power to control. Like water running off of a tabletop Planetary energies will seek the easiest least resistant path to conduct their influences. Therefore you need to create appropriate free flowing outlets for these energies. By familiarizing yourself with the Planets and any aspects involved you can consciously find ways to use their energies in aconstructive manner. If you do not take this approach then the Universe willdo so in its own manner.

An analogy would be that the child's room needs to be cleaned. Here the Planetary forces are likened to the realization that the room needs tidying up by the mother. The mother tells the child either you clean it up now and organize your room the way you want it or I will clean it in the manner I see fit. I may throw things out that you wish to keep for my interests are in a clean room not to take into consideration your personal wishes. The child can either use this energy constructively resulting in an organized familiar environment or he/she may allow a higher power to take
over and arrange their environment.

If you give the Planetary energies a place to go and you are open to new experiences then you will find yourself living in accordance with the Universe most harmoniously. Here is an adverse Neptune Pluto aspect may cause an individual to delve into drugs, unhealthy sex, and somewhat negative situations. If this person does not actively seek an alternative path for these energies this may very well be the result if other natal chart factors point towards this disposition. Instead of this unsavory path the individual could seek their spirituality during this transit. They could transform their lives and the perception of their lives through altered states of consciousness induced by meditation. Like nuclear power this transit could destroy a nation or instead be used to fuel to power a nation.
