A guide for the predictive astrologer

The 4 levels of Predictive Astrology

The ordered approach to Predictive Astrology

The astrological symbolism's complexity is a challenge to the predictive astrologer. The inherent danger for the astrologer is to be overwhelmed by the astrological symbolism, when the approach lacks order and discipline.

The below table was given in Steven Forrest's excellent book on predictive astrology, "The Changing Sky", as a guide for the practitioner entering the wild forrest of predictive astrological symbolism.

It consists in 4 levels, each one representing a different zoom on the astrological influences. The basic rule is that a longer lasting astrological influence will determine more important changes in the life of a person, yet as the lenght in time of the influence increases, the accuracy in predicting actual events will be lower. In order to focus on more detailed influences, in order to zoom in, one must use a different lens, different astrological techniques.

Steven Forrest presents in his book the 4 levels, the 4 predictive nets of astrological influences (transits and progressions) as listed below. They are complementary to each other and each of them gives meaning to the next one by descending order. You may find further information on each of these transits and progressions by reading the book, as they are presented there in detail, each in a different chapter.

Level One

  1. The progressed Sun changing sign or house.
  2. The progressed Moon passing through the first house.
  3. Any progressed planet (except the Moon) conjunct, square or opposed to the natal Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, Moon.
  4. Transiting Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto conjunct, square or opposed to the natal Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, Moon.
  5. Any Saturn return.
  6. The Uranian opposition.
  7. The "Great Convergence".
  8. The progressed Sun conjunct, square, or opposed to any natal planet or any angle.

Level Two

  1. The progressed Moon in any sign or house.
  2. The progressed Sun trine ori sextile any trigger point.
  3. Any progressed planet or angle (except the Moon) conjunct, square or opposed to any sensitive point other than the natal Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, Moon.
  4. Any progressed planet or angle (except the Moon) changing sign or house.
  5. Transiting Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto conjunct, square or opposed to any sensitive point other than the natal Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, Moon.
  6. Transiting Jupiter conjunct, square or opposed to the natal Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, Moon.
  7. Transiting Uranus, Neptune or Pluto changing houses.

Level Three

  1. Transiting Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto trine or sextile any sensitive point.
  2. Any progressed planet or angle (except the Moon) trine or sextile any sensitive point.
  3. Any aspects made by transiting Jupiter not covered above.
  4. All "biopsychic script" material other than Saturn returns, the Uranian opposition and the Great Convergence.
  5. Transiting Jupiter or Saturn changing houses.

Level Four

  1. All transits of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars through any aspects to any sensitive point.
  2. Any aspects made by the progressed Moon to the natal planets.
