Transits

Planets and other celestial bodies are constantly moving; this movement is referred to as transiting or being in transit. Using transits is a method of creating an astrology forecast to show general trends and events. Usually the transits for Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are used. Although the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus can be used they transit very quickly so they don't tend to be used for a transit forecast. Transits are interpreted using signs, houses and aspects.
