Progression

Definition of Progression

In astrology, a progression is simply the way that the planets move around your natal birth chart. Your natal chart indicates your character and your potential, while your progressed chart is calculated by your astrologer using a centuries old method.

Your natal chart will always be the same, but your progressed chart will change for every year of your life. Progressed charts are useful for understanding changes in your life and your personality, and getting a hint as to what may be happening in that particular year. Progressed charts are not to be confused with a solar return chart, which is calculated for the anniversary of your birth and uses a different procedure.

TERM OF THE DAY

Sun Sign

Your Sun sign is the sign of the zodiac where the Sun was at the time you were born. In astrology, it makes up one-third of your primal triad. In your natal chart, the Sun represents your personality and countenance. This is why more importance is placed on it than on the other planets and features, and why your daily horoscope is written for your Sun sign. There are 12 signs of the zodiac, each one with its own attributes and qualities. Since the Sun is in a particular sign when you were born, your personality will reflect many of that sign's traits.
