Understanding Life's Journey

Both ends of Life's Journey
"Of the many techniques used in the Huber Method of astrological psychology, Age Progression - using the natal chart as a life clock - is more often than not the technique which captures the imagination and interest of newcomers and seasoned astrologers alike."

This is a quote from the opening pages of my book, Using Age Progression, published in 2013. There is no doubt in my mind that this specific technique is a favourite one to dabble in and learn more about, especially for astrologers who are not so familiar with it but who would like to use it as a tool for timing events in the horoscope.

What I suggest, if you are planning to try out using Age Progression, is 

don't try it without a correct time of birth; it won't work

do make sure you are using a Huber-style chart, with Koch Houses.

The technique of Age Progression is pretty simple and straightforward; what you need to have in place is a sound understanding of the meaning of each of the houses, each of the planets, each of the signs and also of the aspect patterns used in the Huber Method.

Using the chart as a Life Clock, and starting at the AC, the hand of the Life Clock moves around the chart in an anti-clockwise direction. Each of the houses represents a different psychological life phase, and it takes 6 years to travel through each individual house, regardless of it's size. Small houses will be experienced differently from larger houses.

The sign that the hand of the Life Clock travels through is also significant - it forms a backdrop to the main events and colours the nature of the prevalent energies.

Any planets which are encountered, either eyeball-eyeball or by aspect, will be significant. Their flavour and energies will be available, present and experienced, as will the nature of aspect pattern they are a part of.

The Balance and Low Points in each house will be traversed, and will bring new experiences, often highlighting something which is significant at the time in the life of the individual.

For more on Low Points see my August post. 

For more on Life Clock and plenty of examples using the charts of well-known people who I've written about since starting this blog, click on LifeClock and Age Point, either here or in the sidebar.  

For much more detail, along with example charts, see my book Using Age Progession and the Huber's book LifeClock.
