Your Progressed Forecast begins on the next page. If the time period for an interpretation is, for example, given as "July 1, 2005 (June 15, 2005 to July 15, 2005)", then it starts in mid-June, reaches greatest intensity around July 1, and ends in mid-July. The first date listed is the time when the influence has reached maximum strength; we can call this date the "peak date". The influence starts on the beginning date, gradually increases in strength until the peak date is reached, and then it gradually fades out until the ending date is reached.


It is a good idea to look ahead in your Progressed Forecast for long-lasting influences, as you otherwise may not realize that it is in effect until you are already several months into the time period of the influence.


You may be wondering what the funny abbreviations after the dates are. For example, you may see "Sat Conj Plu", "Ura Trine Nep", etc. These abbreviations are given for the benefit of astrologers and they show the astrological factor that is in effect.


We hope you enjoy your Progressed Forecast. For the benefit of astrologers, some technical details are given below.

Nov 10, 2005    (Oct 24, 2004 to Nov 25, 2006)     Moon SSqr Sat


    Duties and obligations seem burdensome or at least emotionally restricting to you, and you may feel self-pity or temporarily down in the dumps. You are not in a sociable, gregarious mood, no matter what surroundings you find yourself in.



Nov 10, 2005    (Oct 25, 2004 to Nov 26, 2006)  Ven/Nep Conj Ura


    Some of the separation you feel from others can be dissolved now.  This is a period in which the heart can overcome the mind and bring you closer to people.  But you may also sacrifice some of your independence for the sake of love or the right cause.



Nov 20, 2005    (Nov 3, 2004 to Dec 6, 2006)  Moon/Merc Conj Sat


    You may have some worries now.  It may not be a big deal, but you seem capable of generating a lot of nervous energy.  Use this alertness to precisely describe the problems and then make a plan of attack to resolve them one at a time.



Nov 29, 2005    (Nov 13, 2004 to Dec 16, 2006)     Merc SSqr Sat


    Your thinking is rather gloomy and pessimistic at this time. You see the superficiality, the flaws, and the foolishness or impracticality in others' plans. Also, communicating with others is difficult now, and people resist what you are saying. You feel more inhibited and uncommunicative, and you sense that others are not receptive. Frustrating conversations and the feeling that you are coming across negatively are possible now, so you are inclined simply to keep your thoughts to yourself.



Dec 6, 2005     (Nov 19, 2004 to Dec 22, 2006)     Asc Qucnx Pal


     You may experience mental strain and tension caused by difficulties and interruptions in your work, relationships or personal plans. You may have to choose between your personal fulfillment and your work. Or a relationship in your life may cause you more annoyance than usual, and you are indecisive about whether or not it is in your best interests to remain with this person. There can be unpleasant and rigid schedules in your work that infringe upon your freedom. A minor health problem may lead you to take off from work or hinder your productivity on the job.


    This would be a favorable time to reflect upon your attitudes and opinions with regard to your personal life and career. You may need to alter some of your views in order to make more progress in these areas.


    Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.




Jan 28, 2006    (Jan 11, 2005 to Feb 13, 2007)     Ven Sqr Ceres


     You may find yourself uncomfortable and confined by loved ones who cramp your lifestyle at this time. You might have to administer a little tender loving care to yourself before attending to the needs and responsibilities of those in your care. Family members or a mate in particular may be especially difficult to satisfy at this time. Social and domestic affairs may seem unsettling or unorganized and you may be left with the task of having to pull things together for the sake of peace and harmony.



Mar 15, 2006    (Feb 26, 2005 to Mar 31, 2007)      Ura SSqr Plu


    Periodic, sudden fits of impatience and dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs in your life make this time period a difficult, unpredictable one. Sometimes life seems to be proceeding at much too slow a pace for you, and you may try to force improvements and changes prematurely. At other times life becomes so hectic that you wish you could slow everything down. There are lots of changes now and your life is in a state of flux.


    You are in a reforming spirit, and you may be tempted to make drastic changes in your life. You have little tolerance now for mediocre situations and superficial involvements. If your job does not seem really meaningful and consonant with your deepest motivations and drives, you may quit and look for something else. You also tend to be abrupt and tactless with others. Your impatience can erupt as sudden flashes of anger.


    Deep, inner drives and hidden feelings erupt suddenly and unexpectedly now. You become more aware of experiences in your childhood and the subconscious drives that affect your life. Increased clarity and depth of perception of yourself can liberate you to pursue your goals with greater dedication and intensity now. In fact, you are inclined to be rather fanatical and you should be careful to avoid forcing your ideas and will on others.


    This is a time to make sudden changes in attitude and orientation towards the world. Be careful when making major career decisions or business agreements now, however, as your impatience and fanaticism can cause you to make decisions so quickly that you haven't sufficiently thought through the details.



Apr 16, 2006    (Mar 30, 2005 to May 2, 2007) Jup/Ura Oppos Merc


    This is a period in which you are likely to be highly mentally stimulated and excited by new ideas and insights.  This is also a good time for travel, particularly to places you have never been before.  You may have difficulty concentrating on boring details, but you are ready to have your mind opened up, your communications expanded, and your intuition awakened.
