View Full Version : Transits to the outers...
So many people seem to put so much weight on transits to the outer (generational) planets. I find this a little hard to accept. Say, Sa is in aspect to Ne... Well, with the speed of Sa, such a transit will affect everyone born within several years of each other in a period of weeks. Same for Pluto. And moving inwards from Ju, the rate of transiting effects would be a lot quicker. Uranus moves a bit faster, but wiould still be in the same general vicinity for a large percentage of people born within months of each other.
I know, there are rulership issues to consider (if you allow the outers to be rulers; I don't--I stick to the traditional, maybe allowing modern rulersips to "flavor" my interpretation), but still, something good/bad in the essence of the transiting planet would be affecting all these people.
My question: Can transits to the outers be seriously considered? I do take transits BY the outers dead seriously.

Transits to the outers are generational therefore shared by everyone in our age group
Transits to outers feel more difficult to integrate
I dont give as much weight to Pluto making a hard aspect to say Uranus as I would if Pluto made a hard aspect to one of the personal planets or the angles or luminaries
But the cylic transits of an outer to itself is an entirely different scenario - it is a part of our life cycle eg Pluto Square Pluto is a biggie there is no doubt even tho it seems to be expressed differently in more recently generations
Any old issues which have been holding us back in our journey can come to the fore with Pluto Square Pluto
The Neptune Square & Uranus oppositions are the mid life crisis catalysts and can often be life changing at an outer or inner level
I have the feeling too that the transits to outer has some flavour of these outer cycles also as they do mark the cycle of life - but not as clearly as the transit of an outer to itself.
I think we may be called to look at parts of our life in the bigger picture with transits to the outers.
After all its quite transpersonal

From what you write you appear to have had already experience with the outer planet transits. You can associate their meaning with something going on in your life over a substantial period of time that coincides with their transit. So why should transits TO an outer planet be any different, except in the manner of expression?
Taking a VERY simple and hypothetical example. Suppose you have the Saturn-Neptune aspect you mentioned in your natal chart. What does this say? There's something in you and the generation with that aspect regarding form/manifestation/reality and that which is formelss/ irreal/ intangible. ( By coincidence, I have the square). Depending upon the houses involved, each individual will experience that aspect in a certain realm of experience. There are numerous ways in which this can be expressed, of course.
Each time a transit aspects Saturn it's going to be the aspect of life regarding form that is going to be emphasised. When the transiting planet aspects Neptune, it's going to be the 'ungraspable' of formlessness that will be emphasised. Yet each transit will take in the whole aspect over a period of time, according to orb, that will enable its meaning in you (natal chart) to clarify itself.
By the time a major transit from an outer to itself occurs, you will have hopefully had sufficient experience of ts meaning to handle what the next stage is.:D
Thanks for your input, ladies.
Natasha, i really agree with you on the outers' cyclical impact on life. I guess it's easiest to see with Saturn's 7-year cycles, but from there on out, we probablyt don't appreciate them as much as we should.
Frisiangal, I just grabbed the Sa/Ne transit out of the air as one that could be easil;y understood. BUT, I also have that aspect in my natal chart as part of a 3, 4, 5 Cardinal T-sqare with the Sun thrown in for bad measure! I'm really keeping my eye on Pluto now! Tight natal aspects are rough, espcially sqares, as you get a bigger bang for the buck.
And, yes, I've had quite a bit of experience with transots by the outers, especially with Pl... good and bad. I got married with Pl in 5, Divorced with it in 7, (Progressed Ur smack on the progressed Ascendant), had a transformation concerning women when it trined my Moon. Recently told one woman her life was really going to change as Pl approached her MC... She's now in jail.
They're not to be taken lightly. ;-}>
