Secondary progressions represent a symbolic forward movement of the planets and cusps of the birth chart, based on the formula that each day after birth equals one year in the life. The aspects formed by the progressed planets and cusps among themselves and with the natal placements indicate the unfolding of major life trends.

For example, when a person reaches age 28 or 29, the progressed Sun will have moved forward about 29 degrees from its birth position, and the progressed Moon will have completed one entire cycle around the birth chart. The first return of the progressed Moon to its natal position corresponds to the transiting Saturn return at age 29 and marks the beginning of a new phase of adult life.

To make optimal use of the progressed chart, it is useful to identify which house each planet rules in the natal chart. As the planets aspect one another by progression, the matters related to the houses they rule will come into focus. For example, someone with a Cancer 10th cusp (career ruled by the Moon) and a Scorpio 2nd cusp (income ruled by Mars and Pluto) will experiences changes in income from career when aspects occur that involve the Moon and either Mars or Pluto.

Progressed planets and angles move very slowly. The Moon is quickest and takes about 2 1/2 years to progress through each house and sign, bringing matters related to its house and sign position by progression into prominence in the life cycle. Progressed Mercury and Venus move on average a little more than one degree every year. The Sun progresses roughly one degree per year. Mars progresses at about half a degree a year. The heavy outer planets (Jupiter through Pluto) progress very slowly and may never leave their natal sign or house positions.

Aspects formed by progressed planets have the most effect close to the date when they become exact. The aspects of the progressed Moon are ephemeral and influence the life for a few weeks around the date of perfection. Aspects formed by Mercury and Venus are more significant and are felt for a few months around the date that they become exact. Aspects of the progressed Sun and Mars are quite significant and influence one's life for six months to a year around the date of exactness. When the slower planets make exact aspects by progression, they will have a major influence, often lasting for several years, but most powerful during the year in which they occur exactly.

In the following report you will find a listing of the sign and house positions of the progressed planets, followed by all the exact aspects formed during the coming year. When a progressed planet changes sign or house, an event often occurs related to the nature of the new sign or house. These placements will give you a general sense of the areas being emphasized by progression at this time in your life.

The exact progressed aspects will give you an idea of what types of situations and events are likely to occur over the coming year. Progressed aspects being formed by the slower planets will have the most significance. In order of importance of their progressed aspects, the planets are Pluto (profound changes), Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, and the Moon (ephemeral changes).

The interpretations in this report describe some typical situations that might be indicated by each aspect. They are derived from centuries of astrological observation and recorded experience. Nonetheless, these delineations represent only possibilities and not certainties. The paragraph for each aspect will give you a sense of the general types of experience to expect but not the exact nature of what is about to happen. The purpose of this report is to prepare you for both the positive and negative trends of the future period you are about to enter.
