This is an extremely comprehensive reference text on Western planetary transits that belongs on the shelf of every practicing astrologer and student. The information is extraordinarily well researched and builds on the work previous generations of astrologers.
Transits are the most essential part of making astrological predictions in peoples' lives. The descriptions detail not only the actual events and circumstances likely to occur, but also the meaning and significance for the person undergoing them.
The beginning pages explain what transits are and how find them in horoscopes. This is followed by thorough descriptions of the cycles of five major planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) through all twelve houses. After that comes transits of the five major planets transiting all the natal planets.
The aspects used are threefold: the conjunctions, the "hard" aspects (squares and oppositions), and the "soft" aspects (trines and sextiles).
Part 2 is an introduction to the major predictive system used in India in Hindu/Vedic astrology, also known as Jyotish. There are detailed explanations with examples of celebrity charts such as Actor Marlon Brando, Vice President Al Gore, singer John Denver, Actress Jodie Foster, and others. This is a book every practicing astrologer and student must own.
