Astrological Timing: Progressions
In this weekend workshop Steven will introduce the theory and practice of progressions.
A couple have a baby. They ask me to make some predictions. I say, “For the next 18 years or so, she will get taller each day. Then she will begin to get rounder. Around age 30, we will begin to see some gray in her hair.” We may laugh, but those are very reliable statements. Those physical processes are hard-wired into our organisms, like a biological clock. Progressions work exactly the same way. They are the DNA of your birthchart, predicting the timing of developmental themes – and sometimes of developmental crises. Unlike transits, which we all share – Pluto is Capricorn for everybody - the progressions are purely personal, unique and internal. But, just like transits, in practice they are simply points that move around the chart, forming aspects, triggering development and precipitating biographical events.
