Astrology (western)

Still today many people believe astrology goes only as far as reading the weekly horoscope in a magazine. Having found that those predictions are all far too general people tend to associate astrology with a negative touch or only the star sign (sign of the zodiac) they are, or were born in.

Far from the truth as the sign, we talk about as our star sign happens to be only the sign the sun was in at our time of birth.
Hence its proper name should be used more: sun sign,
i.e. the sign one planet (the sun) was in only.

We talk about a horoscope when talking about the exact position of the planets at the moment and location of our birth. Putting all the planets and signs into their glyphs (symbolic representation) we end up with our horoscope or birth chart.
(Horoscope - from ancient Greek =watch & record time)

All our birth charts are totally unique to us, as our exact time of birth and the place of birth together with the exact location, shows the planets at exact that time and place.

In such a horoscope people tend to be surprised to see, that they will have planets in almost all of the signs of the zodiac.
Hence someone telling people their star sign is Taurus for example, might be surprised to learn, that they have many planets in a totally different sign, therefore showing quite different characteristics in their personality and persona than a typical Taurus.

Chinese Astrology (eastern)

2024 is the Year of the Dragon,
starting on 10th February, the Chinese New Year!

The Dragon is a symbol of strength, courage, creativity and innovation. Thus 2024 is expected to be a year of potential and opportunity.

Following some details on what Chinese astrology deals with:

*12 animal signs
(rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake,
horse, sheep/goat, monkey, rooster, dog, pig)

They represent one year of a 12 yearly cycle, hence you find your individual animal sign,
by looking at the year you were born.

*5 elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water)

*Yin & Yang polarities
(i.e. feminine - receptive; association with water, night, moon
masculine - active; association with fire, day, sun)

*the ascendant & *the moon sign

In Chinese astrology there is usually a great emphasis
around the interactions of moon and sun.

The hour of birth brings in other animals' characteristics,
painting an individual, complex picture of ourselves.

What are Transits / Transit Charts?

  • Transits are the actual day-by-day and
    hour-by-hour movements
    of the planets through the zodiac.
  • Our natal charts being snapshots of a moment in time (our birth), and the transiting planets
    (current planetary constellations in the sky),
    relate to that moment in time.
    Which is how the transit chart is drawn up.
  • Most astrologists will be using transit charts to see how the current planetary constellations influence your birth chart, therefore showing your current situation due to planetary influences.

What are Progressions / Progressed Charts?

  • Progressions sometimes known as directions, are based on symbolic movements of the planets. The most commonly used type of progression is the secondary progression, popularly known as
    'Day for a Year' progression.
  • Here each day of life is regarded as equivalent to one year of life.
    Hence the progression chart is drawn up accordingly.
  • Using progressed charts instead of transits would be a personal choice, mostly progressions are used in addition to a transit for a broader picture.
