Predicting with Transits – Gochara

Transits are the constant motion of the planet’s cycles. A chart is a freeze frame of the planets in space. We chart them relative to our planet Earth within the boundaries of the ecliptic against the background of the fixed stars. The fixed stars are what make up the constellations or signs. The transiting planets in a chart are where the planets are currently in the sky. As they form aspects to the natal planets in a chart they trigger events in an individual’s life. We can chart where these planets will be in the future, giving us the ability to make predictions based on where the transiting planet will go in a chart (what houses) and what planets in the natal chart the transiting planet will aspect. The transits will bring to life all the indications of the houses they activate and the planets they aspect. Transits are used to time events in a life. You may see a potential in a chart, but when will the potential manifest or come to fruition? This is activated through the onset of the dashas and the activation of the natal planets through the transits aspecting them...
