Astrologers use the term "Progressions" to describe a particular technique of moving planets forward in time. This technique is aptly named because it describes how a person progresses through their life. Progressions describe the different phases in our lives as well as our inner urges and how they affect our lives rather than dramatic outer events. However, our urges can significantly affect the way in which we react to circumstances and therefore our decisions. It is important that we go with the flow rather than fight against the tides of our lives. Therefore Progressions are likely to show us signposts in life's journey and consequently help us gain wisdom and understanding. Some astrologers believe that Progressions are signs from our soul or higher self; others place less emphasis. We suggest that you read on and see for yourself.
