Your Planetary Transits

Output of the Program

During a transit involving two outer planets it is common for the aspect to become exact three times (due to retrograde motion). More than three exact aspects are possible during a transit. For example, the screenshot below shows that during the 5°-square formed by Uranus and Pluto in 2012-2015 there are seven exact square aspects. An "r" appended to a date indicates that the inner planet (in world transits) or the transiting planet (in personal transits) is retrograde on that date. Exact and minimum aspects are shown in the central column, and exact aspects are marked with an asterisk. When an exact aspect occurs the time of its occurrence (in the selected timezone) is given in the final column. (Further information as to how to interpret dates in transit tables is given in the next section.)

Your Uranus return occurs when Uranus, in its orbit around the Sun, returns (after about 84 years) to the position in the zodiac (or rather, your preferred zodiac, tropical or sidereal) which it held in your natal chart, or in other words, when Uranus becomes conjunct with your natal Uranus. The screenshot below shows a transit table which includes the Uranus return (tropical zodiac) for C.G.Jung in 1957-1960 (during which time he worked on his semi-autobiographical Memories, Dreams, Reflections). Note that transiting Uranus forms an exact conjunction with his natal Uranus not just once but three times: September 23, 1958; January 23, 1959 (when it is retrograde); and July 9, 1959.

Transit tables were made (using an earlier version of this software) for the outer planets — Jupiter to Pluto — for the years 2000-2020, and these are given in Outer Planet Transit Tables. These provide starting and ending dates (and the date when a transit becomes exact or reaches a minimum) for all transits (for orb values of 5°, 10° and 15°) for the following pairs of planets:
