I've always wondered how do transits work. Say, how does a current pluto "remember"s that my natal sun was at this degree, and then would square it, after 10 years, and the general way in which it would function.
There are several schools of thought on this but fundamental difference is:

a) Aristotelian-Ptolemaic view The planets CAUSE things to happen, they are causal agents. Therefore, astrology is virtually a branch of physics.

b) Stoic view The universe is governed and determined by all-permeating cosmic intelligence. Here planets are objects which SIGNIFY things, but not cause them.

Personally, option b is closer to my understanding of astrology.
