Progressions, what are they?
Like fractals, progressions have similar shapes at different scales of time. They are clearer symbols of forthcoming events than transits. Why don't more astrologers use them? Get the scoop

In the industrialized world, why is the U.S. the most violent nation?
The Scorpio Rising chart uniquely explains this tendency, especially when considering the problem as a health issue. The 6th and 12th houses are coming under increased stress. more
1. The New Moon on the 1st is a Solar Eclipse and is being metaphysically shaped by close aspects to Saturn and Neptune. It begins a month-long phase that attempts to reconcile the practical, hard-nosed realities of Saturn with the imaginative qualities of Neptune. On the political scene, we can expect a disheartening number of scandals to plague the presidential candidates. For many, health and work-related issues need attention. Are you satisfied with your job? How can you improve your health?
2. Jupiter enters Libra on the 9th, beginning a year-long passage through the sign of balance. Jupiter here opens the door to increased social activity, and favors the peace-makers of the world. Any new relationship that begins around this date is karmically blessed, due to a well-aspected Juno-Lilith conjunction. Over the next year, any artistic or aesthetic enhancements made will improve life in all areas. Jupiter in Libra favors the Buddhist tenet of following the Middle Path.
3. The Full Moon on the 16th is a Lunar Eclipse, and unusually volatile due to the square to Mars. Geopolitically, we can expect a round of terrorist events leading up to this eclipse, while on the personal level office politics may become heated. Expect tensions to be rising during the 7-10 days before this eclipse as the Sun and Mars square each other. Avoid petty disagreements, but stand your ground when necessary.
4. Mercury turns direct on the 21st (22nd EDT) while trine Pluto and sextile Juno. This practical configuration is exceptionally favorable for business affairs, especially those that involve partnerships or the cooperation of others. New projects that begin around this time are favored, and negotiations and contracts that provide mutually rewarding benefits will prove enduring. Any legal or formal arrangement between spouses is also favored.
5. The U.S. progressed MC opposes Saturn in mid-October but this is a long-term influence that could bring serious challenges to the nation’s institutional structures. The last time the progressed MC made a hard aspect to Saturn was in 1972 (a trioctile or 135º aspect) when the Watergate scandal was brewing. Previously, the progressed MC squared Saturn in 1928 just before the stock market crash.
