All the planets transit around the ecliptic (the Zodiac). When astrologers refer to a transit, they're talking about a specific event, like a planet aligning with the natal chart.

Transiting planets make aspects to the "moment in time" planets of a chart for an event, entity or person (the birth chart). As the planets move, they aspect eachother, and this also creates meaningful cosmic dynamics.

Pronunciation: Tran-sit
