Every Day Planets
Cyclic charts — Solar and Lunar Returns, Planet Returns, t/Moon-to-n/Sun Returns, Diurnal charts — can be interpreted somewhat differently than natal, progressed or directed charts. Cyclic charts track and portray daily events and responses in one’s life. Further, these cyclic charts present natal and transiting planets within a re-oriented house structure. All of this places great emphasis on how we view the planets.
This text will offer an “everyday” interpretive view of the Sun, Moon, Planets, N.Node and Part of Fortune that can be utilized within the cyclic charts that my readers create for their own study. Keep in mind that NATAL planets represent what we have come to express them as we fit them within our total character. TRANSITING planets represent seemingly external conditions and influences that bring change and challenges into one’s life — even if we contribute to the emergence of these challenges.
This page is being built using details taken from the many charts presented. Dave
