Transit

Definition of Transit

An astrological transit refers to the physical path of a specific planet, in relation to another destination or with another planet in the Zodiac.

Since planets are in motion all of the time, they move through the Zodiac sign constellations in the sky. Some planets move slower and some move faster. Jupiter, for example, stays in one sign for a whole year, but Earth’s Moon travels through the entire zodiac in one month. A journey between two planets can also be a transit. So when Uranus is square Pluto, both planets share this transit.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
