Sometimes planets can be in aspect to each other even when they are in the “wrong” signs. It has to do with aspect orbs, the amount of “wiggle room” you allow between two planets that are close to, but not quite in exact aspect to each other.
It’s the rare person who really changes much, at a core level. We all do change a little – but it’s not the transits we face that tell that story. It’s the secondary progressions that demonstrate whether or not we are evolving, reaching for our full potential, and making real progress.
If you list every natal plant and angle in degree order, along with the aspect it will receive from the transiting planet, you can see at a glance how easy or difficult a given transit is likely to be for you ….
From your mother to your best friend in high school to the cabbie who cut you off on your way to work this morning, everyone who has or will cross your path can be found in your chart. You just have to know where to look.
My teacher used to say that having a bunch of planets together in the same sign or house is sort of like having a nursery full of screaming babies and only one set of hands. In technical terms, this bunch of hollering astro-infants is called a stellium, and beloved author Donna Cunningham has written a book about them.
