Yearly Transits and Progressions for George W Bush

Covering February 1 2008 – February 1 2009

Your Yearly Transits and Progressions Report

Including both transits and progressions, this report aims to give a rounded overview of your major trends during the year. To make big picture stand out, it concentrates on the progressed planets, which all move slowly, and on the slow-moving transiting planets, which take from 12 (Jupiter) to 240 years (Pluto) to go around the zodiac. During the period covered by this report, these moving points will make relatively few aspects and entrances into new houses and signs. When they do, the effect on your life will tend to be relatively long-lasting and major.

Below are some explanations of what you will find in this report. (If you know all this already, by all means skip ahead to your forecast!)

Transiting and Progressed Planets. “Transits” are an astrological forecasting technique that compares the present positions of the planets with where the planets and houses were in your birth chart.

“Secondary Progressions” are similar, except that each successive day of transits after your birth moment is taken to symbolize not the trends for a single day, but those for a whole year of your life. Thus the motion of the planets in the first twenty-four hours of your life symbolizes events from age 0 to 1, that in the second twenty- four hours symbolizes events from age 1 to 2, etc. In this system, the day becomes a fractal of the the year, twelve hours corresponds to six months, and every two hours corresponds to one month.

Progressions take the transits that happened during your first few months on earth, and apply them to your whole life. These months of infancy were when you were at your most impressionable and when you were forming lifelong patterns. Progressions show how these earliest astrological influences are echoed much later at specific points in your life. Because the progressed motion of a planet is only 1/365th the speed of its real or transiting motion, progressed aspects last a very long time and their effects tend to be major

Aspects between Planets. When a transiting or progressed planet moves into the same sign and degree as a planet in your birth chart, the symbolism of both those planets is activated in your life. Such a zero-degree separation between two points is a form of aspect — in this case, a “conjunction” aspect. The conjunction is the strongest kind of linkage, but certain other angles, too, can stimulate the energies of the pair of planets involved. These other aspects include the trine (when the two points in the pair are 120 degrees apart), square (90 degrees), opposition (180 degrees) and sextile (60 degrees). There are also the so-called minor aspects: the semisextile (30 degrees), quincunx (150 degrees), semisquare (45 degrees) and sesquare (135 degrees). These can be potent when they last a long time — as progressions and the slower-moving transits do.

The Planets Used in This Report. To make the important trends of the year more obvious, we filter out the influences of the transiting inner planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars). Moving swiftly around the zodiac, the transiting inner planets will aspect everything in your chart during a given year. Their aspects won’t usually last long enough to be felt as anything more than a fleeting, short-term influence.

 

While we include only the slower-moving transiting planets, we include all the progressed planets, plus the progressed North Node of the Moon, and the progressed Ascendant and Midheaven. Because progressions move so slowly, even the fast-moving planets like the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars can have a major impact when they are progressed.

As for the progressed outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto — and also the lunar Node), their motion is exceedingly slow. So slow, in fact, that these points will stay very close to their natal positions for your entire life. Only when a progressed aspect from one of these points becomes exact will it be significant. Chances are, that planet was already close to being in that aspect when you were born. When it becomes exact by progression, you can think of the promise of the natal aspect as being fulfilled.

Very rarely, a progressed planet may make a “station,” turning from direct motion to retrograde, or vice versa. Such an event can mark a subtle but profound shift in your consciousness, one that may last for the rest of your life.

The Progressed Moon. The progressed Moon is a special case, because it travels thirteen times faster than the next-fastest planets (the Sun, Mercury and Venus, which all travel at about the same average speed). While these faster progressed planets move only slightly more than three signs during a human lifetime, the progressed Moon goes entirely around the zodiac every twenty-eight years. This means that about every two-and-a-half years the progressed Moon will go into a new sign or house. When one of the other progressed planets enters a new sign or house, signals a really major change of orientation, a new chapter in one’s life. When the progressed Moon enters a new sign or house, this, too, will cast a new light on things, but it will be more like beginning a new paragraph.

Because the progressed Moon is so much faster than the others, it accounts for by far the majority of progressed aspects. Each progressed Moon aspect highlights the issues of the planet that the Moon is aspecting, and this influence lasts for a couple of months.

The Asterisks. To help you see the relative importance of each transiting or progressed aspect, you will find from zero to five asterisks next to it in your forecast report. An aspect’s strength depends on a number of things. The strongest aspect of all would be a conjunction of a very slow-moving planet (like Pluto or Neptune) with a

fast-moving natal point (like your Sun, Moon, Ascendant or Midheaven). This would definitely have five asterisks — and you would undoubtedly notice something major going on in your life and psyche.

“Exact,” “Begins” and “Ends” Dates. The interpretations in this report are arranged in order of the dates when the transiting and progressed aspects become exact. However, the influence of these aspects begins well before it becomes exact and ends some time after. Following the practice of many astrologers, this report considers that a transit or progression “Begins” when the moving planet is one degree away from being in an exact aspect to the natal planet. It “Ends” when the moving planet is again one degree away separating from the aspect. In other words, the “orb of influence” given to these aspects is one degree on either side of being exact. These cutoff points are somewhat arbitrary, but they do give a rough idea of the time period over which you can expect an aspect to be working. (If a “Begin” or “End” date is missing, it means that the aspect begins or ends before or after the period covered by this report.)

 

Contrary to what you might think, a long-lasting transiting or progressed aspect usually doesn’t manifest as an event or sudden mood change right at the “Exact” point. Usually there needs to be some “trigger” — a faster- moving point’s aspect to the same degree areas during the time that the longer-lasting aspect is in effect. Though the effect of an aspect tends to be stronger the closer it is to being exact, an aspect can be triggered into obvious manifestation any time between the “Begins” and “Ends” dates. You should therefore be on the lookout for manifestations of the aspect during the whole period indicated.

Planets Changing Signs and Houses. As for the ingress of a planet into a different sign or house, the “Exact” date is the only date that is shown. This date is when the planet begins its stay in that new area of the chart. The influence will last pretty much until the planet enters the next sign or house.

Something to keep in mind is that the boundaries separating houses are less definite than those separating signs. This is partly because astrologers have various mathematical formulas for calculating houses. The cusps of houses 1, 4, 7 and 10 are exactly the same in most house systems, but the positions of the other house cusps vary according to the house system used. In the author’s experience, there are four house systems whose cusps seem to register transits and progressions better than other systems. These are Porphyry, Koch, Meridian and Placidus (which is the house system used in this report).

Besides there being disagreement on where most of the house cusps fall, many astrologers consider that as a planet nears a house cusp, it starts to be influenced by the house it will soon enter. For both of these reasons, you should consider the times of entrance into a new house fairly approximate.

 

Sometimes, when a planet is traveling retrograde, it will dip back into a previous sign or house. When the planet is transiting, this will usually be a brief and minor event, not worthy of any stars. For all intents and purposes, the planet has entered the new house and the new life chapter has begun. The retrograde passage into the previous house is just a brief revisiting. However, when the planet is progressed, even these retrograde entries into the previous house can be important. Chances are, a retrograding progressed planet will stay in that previous house for the rest of your life.

The Zodiacal Degrees. In the headings for each interpretation, the first degree, minute and sign shown is for the first planet or other point mentioned in the heading. The second degree, minute and sign is for the second- mentioned point. A transit or progression will be especially strong if you see the same or adjacent degrees repeated in another aspect around the same time. The effect will be strongest if the degrees are in the same sign. However, it will also be strong if the degrees are similar but the signs are different.

The End of the Report. At the end of this report you will find all the transits and progressions handily listed, roughly in order of their importance. This helps you see at a glance which are the most important during this period in your life, and which are less significant.

You will also find a copy of your birth chart in wheel form. This shows the planets in the twelve houses (numbered counterclockwise, starting from the first house at the left). The degrees, minutes and zodiacal signs around the outer edge of the wheel are the positions of the cusps, or beginnings, of the houses that are mentioned in the body of this report.

You’ll also find two additional chart wheels — a progressed chart for the beginning date of this report, and one for the end date. These will show you where and how far the progressed Moon traveled during the year. They will also show you the current signs of your progressed Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Unless you are quite young, these are likely to be in different signs from where they were when you were born. Your birth chart shows your basic disposition, but as you age, your progressed chart shows how you develop in new directions. These two progressed chart wheels will also show that the slow-moving progressed points (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the North Node) have moved hardly at all during your life.

The Author of This Report. Bruce Scofield wrote the interpretations in this report. An astrological consultant since 1980, he has professional level certification from the National Council for Geocosmic Research

(CA-NCGR), for which he served as an education director until 2003. He maintains a private practice based in Amherst, Massachusetts, working with clients by telephone and mail. Bruce speaks on astrology several times a year at astrology conferences and is also the author of numerous articles and fifteen books. Currently he is working toward a PhD and is teaching at Kepler College in Seattle, an accredited higher educational institution that offers degrees with a major in astrology.

And now for your forecast. . . At this point you might be inclined to plunge ahead and read your forecast from start to finish. However, it will make much more sense if you first familiarize yourself with the main pattern of the year. To do this, you can skim through with a highlighter in hand, and mark the five-star aspects and the entry of planets into a new house or sign. Only a few of these five-star events occur each year, and these set the overall tone. Once you understand the main trends, you can then go back and see how the details are filled in by aspects made by the transiting Jupiter and Saturn and the progressed Moon. (If you want greater detail, there are also Daily Planning Guide reports that will help you arrange your schedule to take advantage of the very short-term transiting astrological tides.)

7:13:59 AM EST Transiting Uranus quincunx natal Moon – Exact. *** 16° 42` Pisces to 16° 42` Libra

Ends Feb 21 2008 3:08:19 AM EST

Unstable feelings and mood swings, disturbances in sleep, and strange psychic tendencies are common under this transit. You will tend to act on your feelings now, often abruptly. Female energies are intense. Restlessness leads to residence changes.

 

Feb 3 2008

10:15:57 PM EST Transiting Jupiter quincunx natal Pluto – Exact. * 10° 34` Capricorn to 10° 34` Leo

Ends Feb 8 2008 6:06:28 PM EST

You feel motivated to change things. Urges for power, expressed in terms of territory, finances, or sexuality, need to be handled. Too much of everything could be a big problem.

 

Feb 5 2008

12:13:52 AM EST Transiting Neptune opposite natal Venus – Exact. ***** 21° 29` Aquarius to 21° 29` Leo

Ends Mar 2 2008 3:35:11 PM EST

Strong feelings for others are complicating your social life. There may be confusing episodes or lack of clarity in your love-life now due to actions based on perceptions only. Is it real or is it a mirage? Your inclinations to see the best in others may result in strange attractions and urges that could lead to disappointments and disillusionments in relationships. Be clear about what you are doing and give yourself time to think before you make unnecessary sacrifices or hurt others. Artistic and creative matters may be subject to the same kind of process, unrealistic expectations followed by collapse. Pay close attention to any relationships or art projects that begin under this transit as they may promise more than they can deliver.

 

Feb 14 2008

 

9:30:48 AM EST Progressed Moon quincunx natal Mercury – Exact. *** 09° 48` Capricorn to 09° 49` Leo

Ends Mar 15 2008 5:17:17 PM EST

Your thinking and your feelings are not working together now. Choices are unsatisfying, and tradeoffs are a reality you may have to deal with. The areas most likely to be affected are family and home life, relations with females, mental work, signings and paperwork, and matters of transportation.

 

Feb 19 2008

9:07:47 PM EST Transiting Jupiter opposite natal Sun – Exact. *** 13° 46` Capricorn to 13° 46` Cancer

Begins Feb 14 2008 5:34:51 PM EST

Ends Feb 25 2008 5:28:01 AM EST

Growth could be a real challenge now. Your ambitions (personal, business, or in regard to relationships) may be surging now and you should try to be reasonable about expectations and goals. Overconfidence could ruin a great opportunity. This is a time for reaching out and extending your territory, but do so with consideration for others. Learn to tolerate differences of both style and opinion. Interactions with others are heightened now and you will probably be drawn toward high-spirited, well traveled, and risk-taking persons.

 

Feb 28 2008

9:50:37 PM EST Transiting Uranus quincunx natal Jupiter – Exact. ** 18° 08` Pisces to 18° 08` Libra

Begins Feb 10 2008 7:15:05 PM EST

Ends Mar 17 2008 9:52:06 AM EST

Restless and impatience could lead to upsets in your social life. Problems now probably have to do with conflicts of opinion, issues of morality, law, or religion. Try to be open-minded and see both sides of an issue.

 

Mar 7 2008

6:59:51 AM EST Transiting Jupiter square natal Moon – Exact. ** 16° 42` Capricorn to 16° 42` Libra

Begins Mar 1 2008 9:45:22 AM EST

Ends Mar 13 2008 2:11:03 PM EST

Too much is happening! You may find yourself reacting to emotionally charged situations involving females now. There may also be some conflicts of opinion over differing judgments. You may need to adapt to extravagant or wasteful situations (often in public) and make important judgment calls. Be reasonable in your expectations about others, family matters, and real estate. Be honest with yourself about obligations. Don’t expect the world to do everything for you, and you don’t have to be everyone else’s protector.

 

Mar 8 2008

3:12:25 AM EST Progressed Moon quincunx natal Pluto – Exact. ** 10° 34` Capricorn to 10° 34` Leo

Begins Feb 6 2008 7:10:40 PM EST

Ends Apr 7 2008 11:12:31 AM EDT

Your place in the world may feel somewhat awkward or uncomfortable now. Arrangements and entanglements with others, and sharing in general may present some challenges. You need to confront your feelings and accept tradeoffs. You are in a period where you must let go of what is no longer useful or functioning.

 

Mar 13 2008

4:34:32 AM EST Transiting North Node quincunx natal Saturn – Exact. ** 26° 30` Aquarius to 26° 30` Cancer

Begins Feb 23 2008 7:21:01 AM EST

Ends Apr 1 2008 1:48:03 AM EST

Relationships will require self-control, attention to formalities, and the acceptance of separations and restrictions. Connections with older or more ambitions persons are probable.

 

Mar 16 2008

12:22:12 PM EST Transiting Jupiter square natal Jupiter – Exact. ** 18° 08` Capricorn to 18° 08` Libra

Begins Mar 9 2008 11:46:41 PM EST

Ends Mar 23 2008 5:03:01 PM EST

Your cup is full. It may be that you find yourself in situations where “too much” is a serious problem. Conflicting opinions, particularly about religion or philosophy, may give rise to breaches in trust and confidence between you and others. Look at the big picture. Exercise good judgment, let go of unrealistic expectations and adapt to obligatory situations.

 

Mar 17 2008

12:30:47 PM EST Transiting Uranus square natal Uranus – Exact. *** 19° 09` Pisces to 19° 09` Gemini

Begins Feb 29 2008 12:29:13 AM EST

Ends Apr 4 2008 2:59:52 PM EST

Under this somewhat tense transit you will face the necessity to change or adapt to events that may arise in a sudden or unforeseen manner. Resistance to change, and inflexibility in the face of it, will only cause more problems, both mental and physical. Don’t overstress your spine or your nervous system. What you need now is what others might regard as extreme freedom. Think out your options before you take risks, get reckless, or make irreversible decisions. This may be a time of instabilities and changes that may be upsetting, or at least revolutionary, to you and to others near you. Participation with a group, association or friends may prove difficult during this transit.

 

Mar 21 2008

10:58:08 PM EST Transiting Saturn semisquare natal Jupiter – Exact. ** 03° 08` Virgo to 18° 08` Libra

Begins Mar 8 2008 12:04:56 AM EST

Ends Apr 9 2008 8:06:41 PM EDT

You may need to make some tough decisions now, or adapt to changing legal, financial, and occupational conditions. Your confidence and belief in yourself will be tested. Although you may feel restless, be patient, make decisions carefully, and move ahead with your life.

 

Mar 23 2008

6:11:49 PM EST Transiting Jupiter quincunx natal Uranus – Exact. * 19° 09` Capricorn to 19° 09` Gemini

Begins Mar 16 2008 1:23:42 PM EST

Ends Mar 31 2008 11:53:34 PM EST

Interactions with others may be strained, or at least awkward, during this transit. Be ready for changes in plans and expect some surprises. Matters connected with friends, groups, and associations may be prominent.

 

Mar 25 2008

2:05:05 PM EST Transiting Uranus square natal North Node – Exact. *** 19° 36` Pisces to 19° 36` Gemini

Begins Mar 7 2008 11:02:05 PM EST

Ends Apr 13 2008 10:57:53 AM EDT

This transit brings changes in your social network. You may witness the formation of unexpected linkages and temporary connections with others, not necessarily of your own choosing. This is a time of unproductive meetings and short-term, unstable interactions. This is not a time to form permanent relationships or partnerships. Your existing social network may suffer some changes or destabilization. Connections or meetings with strange, rigid personalities are possible now also.

 

Mar 27 2008

7:57:57 AM EST Transiting Jupiter quincunx natal North Node – Exact. * 19° 36` Capricorn to 19° 36` Gemini

Begins Mar 19 2008 5:23:00 PM EST

Ends Apr 5 2008 6:36:53 AM EST

Large meetings or gatherings are probable under this transit. Obligations must be met and you may feel somewhat pressured by it all. This is a time for networking with others.

Begins Apr 4 2008 4:43:06 AM EST

Ends Jun 13 2008 4:56:08 PM EDT

Developments in your social life may promise more than they can deliver. Large obligatory meetings and gatherings, characterized by excesses or extravagance, may occur now. Productivity may be low and indulgence high. Keep expectations realistic.

Begins Apr 6 2008 10:40:25 AM EDT

Ends May 14 2008 5:07:27 AM EDT

Your ties to community and family may become active or more important now. This is a good time to network with those who are well-connected in a public or professional sense.

 

Apr 27 2008

1:23:05 PM EDT Transiting Saturn semisquare natal Moon – Exact. ***** 01° 42` Virgo to 16° 42` Libra

Begins Mar 29 2008 3:22:54 AM EST

Ends Jun 6 2008 12:06:33 PM EDT

During this transit you may feel more serious and responsible, yet you will find a number of obstacles in your path. Delays, obstacles, separations from others, and obligations affect your life now. Be patient and tolerant of delays and don’t let these conditions wear down your emotional or physical health.

Ends May 31 2008 2:10:55 AM EDT

You may experience some critical moments now as you confront power and sex-related issues. Arrangements and entanglements with others will be a theme around this time, and sharing may present some challenges. You are in a period where you must let go of what is no longer useful or functioning.

 

May 3 2008

Begins Apr 11 2008 6:38:30 AM EDT

Ends Jun 6 2008 6:05:56 PM EDT

Unusual social trends and strong, compulsive feelings characterize this transit. You may experience some disruptions in your social life, perhaps some initiated by yourself. You need more freedom to express yourself now. Think before you act.

 

May 8 2008

7:57:39 AM EDT Transiting Saturn semisquare natal Moon – Exact. ***** 01° 42` Virgo to 16° 42` Libra

Begins Mar 29 2008 3:22:54 AM EST

Ends Jun 6 2008 12:06:33 PM EDT

Begins Apr 22 2008 5:04:03 AM EDT

Ends Jun 26 2008 9:02:18 PM EDT

There is now a deep internal balance within you that may be manifesting externally in the form of harmonious relationships, better living conditions, enhanced creativity, and a general improvement in life satisfaction. Your inner feminine and masculine qualities are in positive resonance; you feel more than usually complete. During this stable and basically positive progression, your judgment is likely to be good and you may wish to make changes and adjustments. This is also a favorable time for agreements, contracts, and partnerships. Your self-esteem should be good now making this a good time for artistic and aesthetic activities, and for dealings with children.

Begins May 13 2008 8:02:14 PM EDT

Ends Jul 13 2008 4:13:07 AM EDT

This important progression happens once every 27 years. During the four weeks preceding and following it, you are more sensitive and your emotions may be especially strong. If you are truly in touch with how you feel, you will know exactly what you have to do. Your feelings, however, may not be in accord with your intentions. If so, this internal division could be replicated in your body, in the outside world, or in your relationships. As personal interests and family obligations clash, scheduling may become difficult.

Right now you are called upon to come to an understanding and acceptance of your contradictions, both within yourself and through the relationship process. There may not be an easy solution except to look at your life in terms of the bigger picture. You may need to move from an unconscious experience of relationship to a more conscious one. The way you think about or conceptualize your life and your relationships now is probably more important than what you actually do or don’t do.

11:32:45 AM EDT Transiting Saturn semisquare natal Jupiter – Exact. ** 03° 08` Virgo to 18° 08` Libra

Begins May 27 2008 11:30:10 PM EDT

Ends Jul 4 2008 5:57:12 PM EDT

During this transit, you experience social obligations and interactions with others who cannot really help you. Outward conditions may look fine, but you may feel uncomfortable. Coming to terms with your social past may also be an issue. Collaborative artistic work may move ahead now during this time of meetings and gatherings. Relations with females will tend to be your most important and challenging interactions now.

Too much is happening! You may find yourself reacting to emotionally charged situations involving females now. There may also be some conflicts of opinion over differing judgments. You may need to adapt to extravagant or wasteful situations (often in public) and make important judgment calls. Be reasonable in your expectations about others, family matters, and real estate. Be honest with yourself about obligations. Don’t expect the world to do everything for you, and you don’t have to be everyone else’s protector.

Can you make changes easily? The answer to these questions right now is probably “no.” Practically speaking, you should not make any major, irreversible changes now because they will ultimately be a reflection of your internal stress.

Resistance to change, and inflexibility in the face of it, will only cause more problems, both mental and physical. Don’t overstress your spine or your nervous system.
