Something I’ve wanted to explore on this show for a very long time is a popular predictive technique called Secondary Progressions.

I’ve always been intrigued but have spent most of my time focussing on other techniques because they came more naturally to me.

So I decided to get my friend and astrological colleague, Fernanda Paiva, on the show to talk about this incredible predictive technique, while sharing the knowledge with you, too!

Two phrases Fernanda used which were particularly evocative were “mining for meaning” and “the inward-facing eye” to describe the function and application of this fascinating topic.

Have you used secondary progressions before and did you find them insightful?

How did you apply them to your own chart and learning process?

Tell me in the comments!
