Clock times |
The time indicated tells you precisely when a transit becomes exact. The effect of the transit is strongest at this time and shortly before. This is particularly valid for fast-moving transits. All times are given in 24-hour format in the timezone indicated in the right column.
Minimal importance of reference place
Transits depend only on where you are born (because this influences your Ascendant and houses). They do NOT depend on where you live. The place where you live has no importance whatsoever for any horoscope reading on this website.
The only exception is of minimal impact. The time when a transit occurs is fixed in Universal Time (aka Greenwich Time). It is the time when a moving planet crosses a particular degree of the zodiac, where your birth planet (or house cusps) is considered to have left a mark. This time is the same, from wherever on the earth you may be watching! Only the local clock time for this moment however will be different, depending on the timezone, in which you live. The 'reference place' in the right column of the daily horoscope page is used to determine, in which time zone these transit times should be printed. If you know about time zones, you can however do the conversion from one to the other just as well in your head, as you often do when you watch a nation-wide or world-wide TV network.
