Astrology Transits

Astrology King is the only website with an extensive number of posts on Astrology Transits which allow comments. Please share your experiences with your current transits, so we can build up a better understanding of this important area of predictive astrology. Planetary transits together with moon phases, are the fundamentals of predictive astrology. To find your current transits go to the astro.com Extended Chart Selection and select “transits” from the “Chart type” dropdown menu.


To keep your horoscope up to date you need to fix it to the heavenly fixed stars and constellations, not to the earthly seasons. Move everything in your birth chart forward at the rate of 1 degree every 72 years. Correcting for Precession of the Equinoxes at precisely 0.838 minutes per year gives the timing of your transits the same accuracy as Vedic astrologers achieve using the Sidereal Zodiac.

For example, to determine the position of the fixed stars in your chart using my fixed stars table you must precess your chart forward to the year 2000.

  • If you were born in 1980 add 17 minutes to your chart. 20 years X 0.838 minutes/year = 0°17′
  • If you were born in 1970 add 25 minutes to your chart. 30 years X 0.838 minutes/year = 0°25′
  • If you were born in 1960 add 34 minutes to your chart. 40 years X 0.838 minutes/year = 0°34′

…treat the tropical zodiac as if it were moving. In other words, one should treat the natal positions of the planets as if they were fixed stars… many astrologers agree that at the very least, determining the positions of the natal chart corrected for precession helps significantly in timing events… My own experience has been that in timing an event the corrected positions are more accurate than the uncorrected ones… no amount of juggling can make the uncorrected positions time an event closely.” [Planets in Transit, Robert Hand, 2001, p.29-30.]
