In Vedic astrology, transits refer to the current positions of planets in the zodiac and their impact on an individual's birth chart. It is the study of how the movement of planets influences and interacts with the natal planets and houses, shaping various events and experiences in a person's life. Transits play a vital role in predictive astrology and are used to assess the timing and nature of events, trends, and changes in a person's life.

Here's how transits work in Vedic astrology:

    Planetary Movement:

  • Transits occur when planets move from one zodiac sign to another in the sky. The speed and duration of planetary movements vary, with some planets taking longer (e.g., Jupiter and Saturn) and others moving relatively quickly (e.g., Moon and Mercury).
  • Interaction with Natal Planets:

  • During transits, the planets in the current sky form aspects (angular relationships) with the natal planets in a person's birth chart. These aspects can be harmonious (conjunction, sextile, and trine) or challenging (square and opposition) and influence the events and energies related to the natal planets.
  • Analysis of Transit Houses:

  • The transiting planets will also move through specific houses of the birth chart during their transit. The significance of these houses is examined to understand the potential areas of life affected by the transiting planets.
  • Prediction and Timing:

  • By analyzing the transits and their interactions with the natal planets and houses, astrologers can make predictions about the potential events and experiences that an individual may encounter during that time period. Transits are essential for determining the timing of events in Vedic astrology.
  • Mahadasha and Antardasha:

  • In Vedic astrology, the main dasha periods (Mahadasha) and sub-periods (Antardasha) of planets are considered alongside transits. The combination of dasha periods and transits helps in fine-tuning predictions and assessing the relative strength of the influences on different aspects of life.

Transits are an integral part of Vedic astrology, and experienced astrologers use them to interpret the current planetary influences on an individual's birth chart and make predictions about future developments. However, it's essential to consider the entire birth chart's analysis to understand the complex interplay of planetary influences and their impact on an individual's life.
