The Progressed Horoscope a sequel to how to judge a nativity where in the progression of the horoscope is exhaustively considered, both in principle and practice including also a full delineation of each and every possible progressed aspect with its influence on character and destiny, the effect of transits, etc.
As has been said in the preface, the principal use to which astrology is applied by those who fail to realise its true purpose takes the form of searching for ftiture happenings, so that predictions may be made and the future known-to a greater or lesser extent according to the skill of the practitioner.
Now it is quite true that the future may be foreseen more or less in every nativity, yet while some persons will respond to every vibration (whether good or evil) that affects them from without, others will fail to so respond, either from lack of sensitiveness on the one hand, or, on the other, through the exercise of a strong will trained to control the sheaths or vehicles of response.
Roughly speaking, there are three separate classes or types of persons, for each of whom the same directions -or predictions will have a different meaning. In the lowest class stand undeveloped and untrained souls, those who are yet young in evolution ; in the highest, those who are older and more experienced souls, practising self-control and using reason and reflection both in thought and action.
Between these two stands by far the largest class, in which are found the majority of souls at our present stage of evolution, souls who can neither be called • old’ nor •young,’ but who are at that critical stage wherein the will has not yet full power, while on the other hand it is not entirely plastic ; there is sufficient receptivity to respond to certain vibrations and not to others. Such souls are strong on some points and weak on others, not having obtained as yet that all-round experience which is the result of age alone.
Now the exoteric student of astrology would naturally apply the same rules to all three classes and thus would make great mistakes, failing in his judgment in many cases while meeting with remarkable success in others. A careful study of human nature has convinced my mind that fate applies more to the majority-the middle class above alluded to-than to the few, the more experienced souls; and for the purpose of establishing a better system of “directing ” or predicting I shall endeavour to make clear in the following pages the best method to adopt when seeking to forecast the future in each individual nativity.
