Planetary Aspects and Transits
and the Moon

By Robin Child
This is an excellent program both for experienced and beginner astrologers. Allowing one to visually view the aspect patterns between two charts is similar to viewing a road map of a city. How and where they relate is clear. Manipulating aspect patterns both forward and backward in time enables one to see the rhythm behind their development and separation. Including the zodiac signs in the center of the chart allows one to orient to the houses as well as to signs and planets.

Archetypal attributes of the moon involve genetically influenced feelings and instincts of nations, groups and individuals. For instance challenging transits between Pluto and the natal moon of a nation can trigger visceral group emotions. When the natal moon of an individual or a large group is aspected by one or more of the outer planets in times of stress these emotions can result in either hostile or altruistic actions. For example the suppressed archetypal shadow of the moon is very much in evidence in fundamentalism when religious leaders direct its expression into violence. Altruism is illustrated in the mass outpouring of international aid during natural disasters such as the Indonesian tsunami and the Haitian and Japanese earthquakes. Whether and how outer planets aspect the natal moon of influential leaders during those events can give advance clues as to how they may react and how they may trigger reactions in very large groups of people. That is why I feel the moon is so important and why the new PAT 15.27 is an excellent means for examining responses and reactions to crisis.

The daily movements of the moon are too fast to generally be of great consequence, however, transits that involve a lunar return or an outer planet coming into aspect with a natal moon enable much deeper insights into charts.

Planetary Aspects and Transits is a well organized program. Simple to understand and use, and versatile.
