Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Planetary Transit: Preface

Dr. Shanker Adawal


Transits are one of the main means used in horoscope reading. They are used to forecast future trend and developments. Astrological transit is about interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope. These transits are studied in the Natal Charts to tell about the timing or fructification of the events.

In this book the initial chapters deal with the basic understanding of the meaning of Transit, the rules to be applied and about the planets. We have also dealt with the rules to be applied in predicting the result of transiting planets. Basic Transit Rules of planets in Houses, Signs, Nakshatra and Divisional Charts is explained at length.

The book then dwells in factors that modify the results of a Transit. It then goes into explaining the impact of the transiting inner planets. I have also gone in details explaining the impact of Jupiter, Saturn, Nodes and Mars in Transit with various permutation and combination.

In the predictive part the chapters then explain the fructification of events and the application of Transits. Application of Ashtakvarga in relation to the Transit of Planets has been dealt in a separate chapter.

The basic principles and the applicability of the Sarvato Bhadra Chakra with a chapter on the impact of Saturn’s Transit in Libra have been dealt which the readers will find useful.

This book starts from the explaining the basic principles’ of Transit and then moves to explaining the predictive aspects. It thus will help the beginners, students and also those doing research. I am sure this book will be useful to all readers.

I would like to end with the thought of Vrindavan & Banke Bihari whose blessings I always look upon in all my endeavors.
