Transits are great, use them all the time.
But more and more I love to check in on progressions.
In progressions your life span is 3 or 4 months, like an insect.
Changes are long, affecting the whole life span.

Here our little gang reacts to a few.
Around age 27 progressed Sun was hitting all the important numbers, setting off a long cross country trip full of soul searching.
Life goals made at that time lasted decades.
At age 51 progressed Venus and progressed Mars hit the critical numbers, while squaring each other, triggering sexual and relationship crises.The desire to maintain (fixed) was very strong, and overcame the impetus to break up.
Look at your own progressions over your life.
Looking at it as only 3 or 4 months, how do you rate yourself?
How have you absorbed the continuous new growth?
