What are transits?
A birth chart shows the state of the heavens at the time and place of birth. However, the planets move on, entering into new relationships with the planetary positions in the birth chart all the time. The passages of the planets over these positions are called transits. Interpreting these transits is one of the ancient astrological forecasting methods that can tell you which of your life's themes are likely to become particularly important at a given time. For example, transits of fast-moving planets tell of opportunities, health, moods and states of mind. The slower transits describe cycles of development, learning phases, crises, as well as periods of stability and happiness.
