Your Third Yogacara Astrology Session

What Are Transits?
Hindsight for Clarity—Foresight for Opportunity
Focusing on what is directly in front of you—something children instinctively know—is sage (or Zen) advice. But to accomplish this effectively as an adult, you still need the wider view to provide the context, so you can make the best decisions in the moment.
The context allows you to develop a strategy.
Every decision you make regarding your work, business, or career, should move you one step closer to your ultimate goal. As the Chinese say,
“When you are buying a new piece of furniture, you should always match it to your best piece: you must keep improving your life“.
However, there will always be unexpected influences that can upset the best of plans. With astrological knowledge, you can see these major influences in the distance before they hit. And after you have completed the BigView and Zoom-In sessions with me, you’ll be ready to look at the influences that are pertinent to you with foresight, giving you the opportunity to catch advantages or turn any imminent challenge into an opportunity.
Many clients have benefited greatly by booking yearly StrategyTransit Sessions for clarification and direction concerning the year or months ahead. Astrological Transits are not ‘predictions’ but temporary influences that can be calculated from the current or future positions of planetary bodies as they impact upon your own astrological birthchart (the neural net of your brain). These Transiting periods can be selected for a time-frame of your choice, even a single event.
When these outer influences are studied against the backdrop of your own complete birthchart, they can present a useful opportunity to reverse old mind-sets and, once understood, can be utilised for spiritual, personal, or career advancement.
rather than the challenge that the ego senses,
is the significant point;
and YOGACARA ASTROLOGY has been designed to make
this distinction easier for you to recognise at all times.
As an analogy, if you are happily swimming in the surf, a stranger standing on a nearby headland could see a huge wave approaching behind you long before you see it. But it is not really possible for that stranger to predict exactly what impact you will experience from that wave. Yet the stranger can see the wave advancing, so several possible scenarios become obvious…
However, if you are warned of the wave’s approach, you can make a choice such as a deliberate dive to escape the violent dumping, or body-surfing the wave to shore.
The advanced warning is useful information for deciding on the most advantageous strategy.
To put you in control of your life events with clarity. Through mindfulness of your personal mind-map, you can ride through a productive course, taking advantage of all influences for positive outcomes and their successful timing.
It is recommended for optimum effectiveness that at least a BigView astrology session be completed with me before we can embark on a StrategyTransits session together.
Though, it is preferable to have also completed a Zoom-In astrology session with me for the finer details of your chart.
It is vital to first be aware of any challenges, any hidden or out-dated concepts, and any inherent but possibly dormant talents which the transits may influence.
- A single StrategyTransits session is most usually booked to cover up to a 12-month period of personal transits, and generally takes about an hour; or, in some cases, a briefer detailed astrological exposé of a past event for clarification and closure (as with the Focused StrategyTransits session, below).
- Focused StrategyTransits sessions can also be booked for briefer consultations for an event (past or upcoming, for closure or opportunity), or by the month or so, for a minumum 30-minute duration (after 30-minutes, the fee for any remaining time is based on 15-minute increments, as in the Progress Sessions), as I generally find 30-minutes is needed for clarity and discussion.
These focused sessions can be more efficient, immediate, and affordable, and may be useful for quick check-ins of even single-day transiting factors regarding a specific event.
They can also be useful for deeper analysis of an event that was highlighted in the yearly StrategyTransits session.
- It is also possible to analyse the transiting effects on the birth charts of businesses or companies, as the beginning or registration of a business will be harmonically linked to the birth chart of its founder, as that chart—being a single moment in time—is an actual Transit to the founder’s personal chart. So it does reflect a quality of ‘mind’, as the business will present challenges and aspirations that are visible in the chart of the company’s foundation.
