Some thoughts about Transits and letters: Why are there 3 Transits – Physical, Mental, and Spiritual, and are all 3 supposed to be active or can it be that only one becomes “active” in a given year? (I.e., if the physical does not become true does it mean mental or spiritual does?)
Also, when a transit which begins - does it mean it will last all the years? (For example, I have a new friend letter C that lasts until 2021. Does it mean the friendship stops then?
Thank you !
Thank you for your question.
All Transits that are currently in place in your numerology chart are equally active; one may be felt stronger than another, but that is probably due to an inability to handle the effects of that Transit as well as that of the others.
And, of course, some Transits are more dramatic than others because they are supported (or aggravated) by other cycles.
A 5 Physical Transit during a 5 Personal Year will cause the general effect of a 5 to be much more strongly felt.
Transit cycles last a duration equal to the numerology value of the Transit letter. If your Transit is the letter T, it will last two years, since the T had a value of 2. If your Transit is an R, it will last nine years, because the numerology value of the letter R is 9.
But let’s look at the nature of Transits from a more general perspective.
There are 3 Transits because, to some extent, we can experience life on three planes: the Physical, the Mental, and the Spiritual, but that, of course, is just an attempt to capture an utterly irrational concept and put it in a rational box. It’s just not that simple. Let me explain.
In theory, the Transits affect your life on the Physical, Mental, and Spiritual planes, based on whether they are found in first, middle, or last name respectively.
Keep in mind that this is an extremely subtle division of a person’s life experiences. The Physical plane may be less subtle than the others because it includes you physical body as well as your material environment; basically, your health, physical love-life, financial circumstances, consumption, attachment to objects, etc.
However, your Mental and Spiritual Transits are easily confused and perhaps even fused – which is why the Mental is based on the middle name and the Spiritual Transit on the last, and… for those who lack a middle name, the last name covers both; fusing the Mental and Spiritual Transits, so to speak.
In essence, there are few, if any, life experiences that are exclusive to one, or even two, of the three planes; they are always felt across all three. If, for example, your Physical Transit indicates a time of health issues, it will affect you mentally and spiritually as well. And if a Mental Transit points to a time of instability, it will affect you on the Physical plane as well.
What numerology, and any other Metaphysical science, tries to accomplish is insight; a better understanding of who we are, what is happening with us and why, and so forth. For that purpose, we analyze things we know in search of things we don’t know (yet). Transits are a great example of how we can find insight, but not just on their own.
There are essentially four to five yearly cycles that, in order to get some insight into your future, have to be linked and viewed together. They are your three Transit cycles, your Essence cycle (which is calculated by adding your Transits), and your Personal Year cycle. Always read all five if you want to have a better understanding. However, the most telling is the combination of the Essence and Personal Year cycles, as they overlap and create what we call a Duality. Reading your Dualities for any particular year is the most revealing part of any numerology forecast.
