One of the biggest mistakes we can do while interpreting or understanding annual transits of planets is to apply the same transit of D-1 chart in other D-charts alike. Like, Jupiter will be in Pisces in Sky and D-1 charts as per sidereal zodiac from 13th April, 2022 but it will be a huge mistake if we think that Jupiter will be in Pisces in all the other D-charts too.
This article will help us in understanding how we can use transiting planets for analyzing other D-charts except D-1. Let’s understand on following points -
Reason – Now, why we can’t use same transit positions of planets in D-1 and other D-charts alike?
It is because planetary position in D-1 chart is the actual planetary position in Sky but the planetary position in other D-charts are not the actual planetary position in Sky. They are based on calculations done on the basis of D-1 planetary positions.
For example, I was born with Jupiter in Cancer in D-1 chart as Jupiter was transiting in sky in Cancer at that time but in my D-9 chart Jupiter is in Virgo, in D-10 chart Jupiter is in Taurus and it changes its positions in other D-charts too. But in Sky, Jupiter remains in Cancer only.
Hence, when we are judging a transiting planet in Sky then we can use that position in D-1 chart only. Like, Jupiter is transiting in Pisces from 13th April, 2022. So, I can use Jupiter in Pisces transit for my 5th house/Pisces related matters, being a Scorpio ascendant, but I can’t use Jupiter in Pisces transit for other D-charts as Jupiter will be changing signs in different D-charts as per the calculations applicable.
How to use annual transits of planets in other D-charts? – So, this is the way -
- Suppose I want to see Jupiter transit effect on my D-9 chart from 13th April, 2022 to 22nd April, 2023 then 1st of all I should make chart of 13th April, 2022 after Jupiter moves in Pisces. Details I am taking is 13th April, 2022 at 1.30 pm New Delhi, India. This shows Jupiter-Sun in Pisces in D-1 chart.
- But if I look at D-9 chart of this transit chart then Jupiter is with Mercury in Cancer.
- So, if I want to see how this coming Jupiter transit will give me result in D-9 chart, I should apply this Jupiter in Cancer position in my D-9 chart. In my D-9 chart, I am actually Cancer ascendant only which means that Jupiter will be in my 1st house/Cancer in D-9 to start with this transit of Jupiter in Pisces in D-1 charts.
- But then Jupiter won’t remain in Cancer in D-9 for throughout the year of April, 2022 to April, 2023. On 29th April, 2022, Jupiter will shift into Leo sign in D-9 chart. Again, we would need to make a chart of 29th April, 2022.
- Now, if I want to see this shift in D-9 chart, I should apply this Jupiter in Leo position in my D-9 chart. In my D-9 chart, as I am Cancer ascendant, Jupiter will be in my 2nd house/Leo from 29th April, 2022.
- Then again on 15th May, 2022, Jupiter will shift into Virgo sign in D-9 chart. Again, we would need to make a chart of 15th May, 2022.
- Needless to say that if I want to see this shift in D-9 chart, I should apply this Jupiter in Virgo position in my D-9 chart. In my D-9 chart, as I am Cancer ascendant, Jupiter will be in my 3rd house/Virgo from 15th May, 2022.
- Then again, next shift of Jupiter in Libra in D-9 will happen on June 4th, 2022 and we have to do the whole exercise again.
- Like this, we have to keep switching the signs of Jupiter in our birth D-9 chart to read its transit after every 15-20 days as per the position of Jupiter in D-9 chart in the annual transits.
Same process needs to be followed for different planets if we want to see their positions in D-9 chart in annual transit.
And same process needs to be followed for every divisional chart if we want to see planetary positions in different D-charts in annual transit. For example, if you want to see result of coming Jupiter transit in D-10 chart then make the chart of moment from 13th April, 2022 and then look at Jupiter’s position in D-10 chart and then apply the same sign position of Jupiter in your D-10 chart.
Hope this helps. Thanks,
