Daily Transits - what are they?

What Are Transits?
Transits refer to the positions of the planets at a given moment in time.

In essence, they are a celestial snapshot that allows us to get a sense of the current cosmic weather and compare the current planetary arrangement, known as transits, with the positions of the planets at the time of our birth.
A Daily Horoscope is the comparison of the positions of the planets now (transits) with the positions of the planets when you were born. 
In comparing the current sky with the sky from the moment you were born, you can determine what planetary energies are tending to influence you right now. By knowing what energies and vibrations are "impinging" upon you right now, you will be better able to take advantage of these energies rather than simply be subject to them. As they say, "Forewarned is forearmed."
The farther away from the Sun a planet is, the slower that planet moves. Therefore, its effect on you will last for a longer period of time and hence probably be more noticeable in some ways. Nothing lasts forever, neither so-called good transits nor so-called "bad" transits (which are only good-in-the-making). It is our responsibility to use our individual Will in order that we may learn to "rule our stars". When we are finally able to do that, then no transit will have any effect upon us.
The transit planet positions and the interpretations for their planetary influences, with respect to the planet positions in your natal chart, for the moment you logged in today are shown under "My Makeup".
