Planetary Transit 2022

What Are Transits?

Let's start with the definition of transit.

In Sanskrit it is termed as "gochar" and this terminology is still used among Hindi or Sanskrit language speaker. 

The word transit literally means "in motion" or "in movement" or the "action of passing through".

In simple words, the transit of a planet means its movement which indicates its position at any given current time.

In astrology, the transit of planets means the same and it refers to the motion of the planet in the current time.

The transit of planets happens over 12 zodiac which spans from 00-30 degrees in the anticlockwise direction and a complete cycle is said to be finished when a planet transit through each of the 12th Zodiac signs from Aries to Pisces.

For example on 23-06-2022 the planetary positions of planets are as follows:

transit example

As you can see above in the image, there is the mention of degrees of the planets they are in.

These degrees indicates where exactly the planet is situated in its transit.

It is also known as the "cycle of the planet"

These Zodiacs are made of Nakshatras, each nakshatra have span of 13 degrees 20 minutes and each nakshatra have total 4 pada or quarter in them which are of 03 degrees 20 minutes.

Each planet creates a different kinds of results when they transit through these Zodiac signs.

If you need more specific effects of transit then you can monitor the transit of the planet through the nakshatra pada.

All this means within a sign, the transiting planet creates a different kind of results.

The whole duration of the transit will never be the same, the effects will keep changing.

For example Saturn takes 2.5 years to transit through a sign and the effects are never the same throughout the 2.5 years because while in its transit Saturn will change Nakshatra and its pada which will bring their own effects.

The same way all planets transit through zodiac signs at their designated speed.

Now you understood the basics concept of transit in astrology, let's move ahead to see why they are important.

Why Transits Are So Important?

Each planet controls an area of our life and during the transit of the planet through different zodiacs and nakshatra different kinds of effects are created.

The snapshot of planetary positions when we are born and our fate and destiny are decided by that snapshot which we call the Natal Horoscope or Natal Birth Chart. 

Transit of planet acts as a catalyst, modifier, influencer or you can call it an agent, to activate what is promised in the Natal Horoscope. their role is as important as planetary dasha

Transit have ability to trigger events such as marriage etc, the best example for this is double transit where the combine influence of Saturn and Jupiter creates important events in our life.

In the same way, Sade Sati is also a transit that lasts for 7 years and is known to cause hardships in life.

It is well known that the transit of malefic planets over 64th navamsa and 22nd drekkna is known to cause death and marak effects.

Clearly, planetary transits can cause major events and it is important one learn the ways to read them.

The Right Way To Read Transits In Astrology

Each planet brings its own set of complications and modifications which are directly related to its natural signification and signs owned by the transit planet.

It is very must to see the functional nature of planet because that decides the theme of the transit.

It is also important to see if in transit the planet is making association with other planets or not, if yes, than what are the possible modifications in the results of the transit.

Same time one can apply transit in divisional charts.

We all are aware that planets Saturn, Jupiter, and Rahu-Ketu transits are very long in duration and along with Dasha they judge they decide the events of our life.

I have mentioned here how the transit of Saturn has major say in events of our life.

In the same way, the transit of Sun, Mercury, and Venus are always close by to each other and have an important role in how an event will unfold.

Now, the Mars transit which lasts for 45 days in a zodiac sign is very important in astrology.

Mars is the only planet whose duration of transit is beyond one month but less than two months.

Planet Sun, Mercury, and Venus transit in one zodiac sign for approximately one month. Whereas Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu & Ketu transit in one zodiac sign are very long.

So it seems that planet Mars plays a key role in between and acts as a messenger between core interior and major exterior planets.

What is destined and designed by the transit of Saturn, Jupiter and Rahu-Ketu pass through Mars and Sun, Mercury and Venus transit dynamics decide the way the event will unfold whereas planet Moon decides the day when it will happen. 

All this seems reasonable to me because Mars is your energy, courage, and ability to do karma. It is your energy and passion which can help you to avoid the outcomes of an event by sheer hard work, courage, and by your ability to do Karma.

This means we get a chance in between to think and act before the events are passed to core interior planets i.e. Sun, Venus, and Mercury.

If we don't do the Karma by the time event is with Mars transit then definitely, we can not avoid the outcome which is set by Saturn, Jupiter, and Rahu-Ketu. 

The best example of how planetary transit works in unison is Double transit theory, where transit of Saturn and Jupiter creates significant event in the life of native.

This topic is lengthy and technician, you can read the following article to understand the rules which are helpful to read the transit effects of planets:
