Predictive Astrology: Everything that you should know about



We must recognize that Predictive Astrology differs from Natal Astrology. Their cores are distinct, as one caters to our desire to predict the future or the outcome of a specific event, while the other aids our personality and growth due to our birth.

Most astrologers employ a variety of methods to “see into the future” of a person. Here are some of my favorite methods: transits, secondary progressions, solar arc directions, solar return charts, and others.

For example, transits challenge and pressure us to change our lives and attitudes toward our lives. They bring us joy and sometimes sorrow–they yank parts of ourselves out of us and “force” us to confront them. Secondary progressions reveal our maturation and growth cycles, revealing how our personalities develop.

Basic Rules

Despite its differences from Natal Astrology, the branch of Predictive Astrology has a solid connection to it because no event in our lives can manifest unless our natal chart supports it. For example, if one of the predictive techniques shows a trine between Venus and Saturn, a person with none or a problematic relationship with these planets will not reap this positive aspect’s full benefits. Therefore, everything found in predictive techniques must be confirmed as a possibility in a natal chart.

Furthermore, the three predictive methods must be found in and confirmed for a prediction to be considered correct. This does not guarantee that the prophecy will come true, but it does make the possibility of the event ethically acceptable. We are here as astrologers to promote free will and help others understand their paths and responsibilities. If a person recognizes that they have control over their lives, they may be ready to make a genuine shift in consciousness and take a step closer to enlightenment.

Predictive Techniques

Because this branch of Astrology has been approached from numerous angles and used for centuries, there are many predictive techniques. Curiosity is a constant trigger for foretelling and almost everyone wants to know what the future holds at some point in their lives.

When it comes to the future, it’s important to remember that it’s possible to predict the outcome without using any chart in some cases. Simple human logic can frequently provide answers to some of the questions we are asked.

Still, suppose we choose to become professional astrologers. In that case, it is our responsibility to use charts as guidance for events and specific clarification of possible outcomes, rather than relying on personal experience or guessing what will happen.

Time Frames

To cover all aspects of the timeline of events in life, we must understand each sign’s speed. Horary Astrology can be a helpful tool for making predictions in some situations. Through the quality of the zodiac signs and houses, as well as orbs of relevant aspects, it will provide us with specific timelines to questions such as “When will…”

Their timelines will cover days, weeks, months and occasionally years if this is a reasonable expectation for the situation. The slowest of all is fixed quality. It takes time, and on a larger scale, it represents a larger area. When we see a planet in a fixed sign, we know it will take years, if not decades, to manifest or even months if the event in question is short.

Planetary Aspects

Every event has a peak when its manifestation is probable, regardless of which predictive technique we use or whether we observe slowly moving planets or personal, fast ones. This apex will never be linked to a time when significant events have already occurred. Even when distant planets, particularly Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, pass through the moment of exact aspect with another celestial body of importance, they will give off a general atmosphere. Still, event triggers will always be near an element when the event occurs.

Positive aspects will bring as many events as negative aspects. We will feel some of them more strongly than others simply because we are personally connected to them in our horoscope. This always creates a delicate balance of “good and evil” in our lives, things for which we should be grateful because they smell like perfection, and things that will bring us down and bend us.

The tricky part is recognizing that there are no negative experiences or situations. Each of them is merely a compass on our journey, a reminder that we may be in the right.

When we are truly aligned with our life’s mission, challenges will diminish until they vanish, and the Universe will be delighted to assist us on our journey.

The planets produce results based on their subperiod strength. Subperiod results take a back seat to transit influences. Therefore, it is difficult to deal with strong/exact afflictions to the natal planets. Consistent propitiation for functional malefic planets, combined with strengthening weak and afflicted functional benefic planets, is beneficial. Other powerful planets in the birth chart can assist in reducing the severity of severe afflictions. In general, the strong planets produce positive results for their significations throughout life. When there are no strong or well-placed planets, change is difficult to achieve. Strengthening measures and regular propitiation of the functional malefic planets are necessary.

The Tajika System of prognostication uses planetary aspects to predict the future.

The planetary aspect on the 5th and 9th houses from itself is very strong, openly friendly, and helpful, according to the Tajika System[6], which in practice is applied more to Varshaphal (Annual Chart) or a query-chart (Horary astrology). The aspect on the 3rd and 11th is secretly friendly but highly beneficial, with the former being stronger. The secretly negative aspect on the 4th and 10th is unhelpful and often destructive, as planets forming such an aspect tend to produce bad results and cause disappointments. The openly negative aspect on the 7th is unhelpful and often destructive. Tajika aspects are considered effective. Western astrology follows this principle. Beneficial aspects of the 2nd and 12th bring happiness, but negative aspects on the 6th, 7th, and 8th bring many difficulties. Partially strong aspects aren’t usually taken into account.
