Progressed Chart Interpretation for Diana Spencer For 7 Years Starting 7/1/80
Secondary progressions represent a symbolic movement of the planets and cusps of the birth chart. This progressed motion is based on the idea that naturally occurring cycles (e.g., days, weeks, months, years) can be compared proportionally. In secondary progressions, each day after (or before) birth corresponds to one year in the life. For example, if someone were born on October 5, 1960, then their progressed chart at age 19 would correspond to a chart cast for 19 days after birth, that is, for October 24, 1960. When we measure backward in time before the birth chart, we speak of converse secondary progressions.
When interpreting secondary progressions, we compare the positions of the planets and other horoscope factors for a particular time after birth with their locations in the birth chart. Certain angular separations, called aspects, have special significance. The most important progressed aspects are those formed by angular separations of 0 (conjunction), 30 (semi-sextile), 45 (semi-square), 60 (sextile), 90 (square), 120 (trine), 135 (sesquiquadrate), and 180 (opposition) degrees. The aspects involving 30, 60, and 120 degrees are considered harmonious and easy; they represent luck and opportunity. The aspects involving 45, 90, and 180 degrees are considered inharmonious and stressful; they signify challenges that force up to grow and develop. If their energy is used unwisely, they confront us with crises and difficulties that get our attention and help us get back on track.
The aspects formed by the secondary progressed planets and cusps among themselves and with the natal placements indicate the unfolding of major life trends. The progressions act like the unfolding of the "genetic code" of the birth chart and form the backdrop against which the transits (the current actual movement of the planets) for a given period take place.
When reading this report, pay special attention to the following factors:
1) The house and sign placement of the progressed Moon. These influences last for about a 2 1/3 year period and strongly influence one's life during that time.
2) The aspects formed by the progressed MC, ASC, Sun, and the planets (other than the Moon). These will indicate major trends for a year or more surrounding the date on which they become exact.
3) The aspects formed by the progressed Moon. These are briefer influences that will color a several week period either side of the date on which they occur. These progressed Moon aspects can also act as "triggers" that stir the aspects formed by the other planets to manifest themselves. Aspects formed by transiting planets to progressed positions can act as triggers in a similar manner.
4. Of less importance are the house and sign placements of the progressed Sun and planets other than the Moon. For the slower planets the progressed placements will be the same as the birth placements for much or all of the life cycle. Thus, they will have a similar meaning to their occurrence in the natal chart. However, whenever a planet changes to a new sign or house, that will have a major impact for at least a year either side of the date on which it occurs.
5. When a progressed planet becomes stationary (has no apparent motion with reference to the earth), this has a major influence in the progressed chart.
Note that next to each aspect is the date on which it becomes exact. The influence of the aspect spreads out like waves in a pond on either side of the exact date.
Next to the entry of each planet into a house or sign is an indication of whether that planet is moving forward or backward in the horoscope and how many degrees into the house or sign it has already traveled. The signs of the zodiac are 30 degrees wide, so a planet at 10 degrees would be one third of the way through the sign. The twelve houses of the horoscope vary in width. The report will indicate the width of each house and how far the planet has already traveled into the house.

Friendships and humanitarian ideals play an important role in your life. You may find yourself joining a club or similar organization. An interest in modern gadgets, electronic devices, progressive ideas, novel modes of thought, or New Age subjects (including astrology) is likely to blossom.

It is important to pay attention to your feelings, hunches, and intuitions during this progression. When the Moon leaves the 12th house and crosses the Ascendant, some hidden matter may come to light. You are likely to have contact with people in hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, or other places of confinement or isolation. Some form of sorrow often accompanies this placement of the Moon. You must resist the temptation to try to escape from painful reality or play the martyr during this period. There may also be a tendency to act against your own best interests, which has led astrologers to call this the house of self-undoing. If the Moon makes stressful aspects, you must guard against deception, con artists, gullibility, over-sensitivity, over emotionalism, or excessive use of drugs or alcohol. You may also get into difficulty because of your relationship with a woman.
The Moon in the 1st House: 08-Jun-1984, Moving Forwards at Degree 0 in a 41 Degree House
The Moon by progression is in the 1st house, indicating a new cycle of individual expression. The progressed Moon remains in this house for a little over two years. This is likely to be a time of changeable moods and of increased subjectivity. Issues related to mothering or nurturing of self and others come to the fore. Matters related to the house containing the Moon and the house ruled by the sign Cancer in your natal horoscope play a prominent role in your sense of identity. You may tend to overeat during periods of emotional hypersensitivity, and you will focus more attention on taking care of your body. Time spent in contemplation, in compassionate activities, in occult or psychic studies, or time spent near the sea will aid you in developing a clearer sense of self over the next couple of years. You will find yourself being more assertive about family issues and domestic concerns. You may be called upon to assume leadership at the start of a new enterprise. The entry of the Moon into the 1st house often corresponds to some definite and observable change in one's personal life such as a significant trip, a change of residence, a new job, a birth, a marriage, etc.

Major changes are likely in matters ruled by the Moon and fourth house such as the family, one's domestic life, real estate, women in general, the public, one's mother, and significant endings. The next two plus years will be a time of emotional sensitivity and fluctuation. As the Moon crosses the Ascendant, hidden issues or psychological concerns that were stirred up during its just completed progression through the 12th house may now come to light.

The Moon by progression is in Capricorn where it spends a little over two years, putting a spotlight on public standing, professional or business matters, and one's career.

There is a tendency to feel lonely, withdrawn, self-critical, despondent, and unloved. You are more than usually cautious, orderly, dutiful, and persevering. Difficulties may arise with the women in your life who become controlling or demanding. Extra responsibilities occur regarding home, family, and real estate. Career demands may conflict with your romantic or emotional life. A period of illness is possible. Some may seek professional treatment for depression at this time. For women, this can signify a difficult period for pregnancy or child care.

You may find yourself joining a club or similar organization. Your friends turn to you for advice and counsel. You develop an interest in modern gadgets, electronic devices, or New Age subjects (including astrology). This is an excellent time to identify hopes and wishes for the future as a first step in trying to make them a reality.
