What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in astrology and would like to meet like-minded people to discuss astrological topics in person. Beginners and experienced astrologers are welcome. Lectures, education, and chart review.

What is Astrology?

Astrology is, put simply, the study of the correlation between the astronomical positions of the planets in our solar system and events on earth. Astrologers believe that the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of a person’s birth have a direct influence on that person’s character. These positions are thought to affect a person’s destiny, although many Astrologers feel that free will plays a large role in any individual’s life.

What are Astrological 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 birth positions are called Transits.
Interpreting 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 often tell of opportunities, health, moods and states of mind that pass fairly quickly. The slower transits describe cycles of development that take much longer, learning phases, crises, as well as periods of stability and happiness.
