The act of passing; passage through or over.
A line or route of passage or conveyance; as, the Nicaragua transit.
The passage of a heavenly body over the meridian of a place, or through the field of a telescope.
The passage of a smaller body across the disk of a larger, as of Venus across the sun's disk, or of a satellite or its shadow across the disk of its primary.
To pass over the disk of (a heavenly body).
The position and movement of a planet on a given day; used in reference to planets that pass over or aspect a natal planet or cross a natal house.
The passage of one celestial body in front of another celestial body. When a planet is in transit, we understand that it is passing in front of the sun.
The passage of a celestial body over a specified meridian. The passage is designated as upper transit or lower transit according to whether it is over that part of the meridian Iying above or below the polar axis.
The movement of an object between the Earth and the Sun and showing on the surface of the sun as a black dot.
a moving planet at some time after birth, usually significant insofar as it aspects some planetary birth position; also, the crossing of the local meridian by a celestial body.
Travels of a planet leading to aspects with other heavenly bodies.
apparent passage of a celestial body across the face of another larger celestial body, such as the passage of Mercury across the face of the Sun.
the passage of the apparent centre of the disk of a celestial object across a meridian: also the passage of one celestial body in front of another of greater apparent diameter (e.g., the passage of Mercury or Venus across the Sun or Jupiter's satellites across its disk); however, the passage of the Moon in front of the larger apparent Sun is called an annular eclipse (see eclipse, annular). The passage of a body's shadow across another body is called a shadow transit; however, the passage of the Moon's shadow across the Earth is called a solar eclipse. (See eclipse, solar.)
The visible journey of Mercury or Venus across the Sun’s disc or of a planet’s moon across the disc of that planet.
The moment when a celestial body crosses the meridian, the north-south line in the sky.
a journey usually by ship; "the outward passage took 10 days"
make a passage or journey from one place to another
pass across (a sign or house of the zodiac) or pass across (the disk of a celestial body or the meridian of a place); "The comet will transit on September 11"
(i) The passage of Mercury or Venus across the disc of the Sun (ii) The passage of a planet's moon across the disc of the parent planet (iii) The passage of a planetary feature (such as Jupiter's Great Red Spot) across the central meridian of the planet. (iv) The passage of an object across the observer's meridian (see culmination). In the latter case, for extended bodies (e.g. Sun, Moon, planets), the body's position is taken to be its centre.
The passing across a meridian on a celestial body by another celestial sphere.
A transit occurs when one planet passes another in longitude or passes a particular point in longitude.
The movement of a planet over, or in aspect to, a specific point, sign, planet or house cusp in a horoscope. It also refers to the passage of a planet that generates a certain zodiacal influence (e.g., the Sun transits Aries from about March 20 to April 20).
When either Mercury or Venus passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, and appears as a silhouette against the solar disc - a rare event. The next transit of Mercury is on 15th November 1999, and the next of Venus (the first since 6th December 1882) is on 8th June 2004.
1. the crossing of a celestial body over the meridian 2. the crossing of a celestial body in front of another
The passage of one celestial body across the face of a second larger body.
The apparent journey of Mercury or Venus across the Sun's disc, or of a planet's moon across the disc of its parent.
The position and movement of a planet or point on any given day.
the passage of a smaller body in front of a larger body; also, the passage of a celestial body across an observer’s meridian.
The passage of the moon over the local meridian; it is designated as upper transit when it crosses the observers meridian and as lower transit when it crosses the same meridian but 180 degrees from the observer's location. When specified, transit may be referred to the Greenwich meridian.
The passage of a celestial body across an observer's meridian; also the passage of a celestial body across the disk of a larger one.
The apparent movement of a smaller object across a larger object. Ex. A Mercury transit across the Sun.
A planet's movement (subsequent to birth) over or in aspect to factors in the natal or progressed chart, or in aspect to other transiting factors.
The movement of a planet over or in aspect to a sensitive point, planet, or house cusps in a birth chart.
A journey from one location to another.
Since Mercury and Venus are closer to the Sun than the Earth, as seen from here they can occasionally line up directly between us and the Sun, and as a result can be observed (by a suitable safe technique, eg projecting the Sun's image through a telescope) as a tiny black dot moving across the face of the Sun. Transits of Mercury occur every few years; the next to be visible from Britain will be in 2003. Transits of Venus are much less common, and tend to occur in pairs every 105 or 120 years, with an 8-year gap between each pair: for example, the last transits of Venus were in 1874 and 1882; the next (both visible from Britain) will be in 2004 and 2012.
The term ?transit" refers to the current movement of any planet. I will often use this term to identify a current location and influence of a planet in question.
An aspect between the current position of a heavenly body and the position of another heavenly body in the Natal Chart. The combination of the energies between those two celestial objects is read in order to discern events in the immediate and long-term future.
Transit is when a smaller body passes in front of a larger one (for example, when an object passes between the Sun and the Earth). During this time, the object seems to be crossing the disk of the Sun. The only planets that ever pass between the Earth and the Sun are Mercury and Venus (since they are closer to the Sun than the Earth). Therefore, the only planets that can produce a transit are Mercury and Venus. Transit is the passage of a moon in front of its primary. Transit is the passage of an object across an observer's meridian.
A privilege sometimes granted to shippers which allows for cars to be stopped off during transit for milling or storage. OR Passage through or across a railroad's territory.
