## Introduction To Progressed Delineation

At certain times in your life, you've probably had the feeling that the opportunities are available for exactly what you want to do. At other times, you've undoubtedly experienced the feeling that nothing's going right, that you don't seem to be able to make the contacts you need and that you can't find a satisfactory outlet for the strong capabilities you have.

At any particular time in your life, there are specific energies and influences in operation which are not directly related to your basic characteristics. These energies and influences can be mapped by numerology. You can determine in advance the times of greatest opportunity. You can foresee problems and the areas in which they're likely to occur. Or, you can look back and get a clear picture of why some past experiences were so satisfying while others were so uncomfortable.

The mapping of these forces is accomplished by preparing a progressed delineation, a reading describing the probable events and opportunities at any specified time in the life. Some students are especially delighted at this point. "Aha!" they say, "now I'll be able to foretell the future." I'm sorry to say this isn't true. The progressed delineation won't allow you to predict your future or anyone else's, but it will allow you to:

determine the influences operating at any time in an individual's life; determine when an individual's various energies can each be put to the best use; determine the times when obstacles to the use of various energies may be present;

In Chapters 28 and 29, we'll introduce the long term cycles. Our plan of We'll show how they're calculated, describe their duration, study for their particular effect and their significance. nroPTPSsed

In Chapter 30, we'll discuss the synthesis of the two long term cycles.

In Chapters 31 and 32, we'll examine the medium term cycles in similar detail and, in Chapter 33, we'll synthesize these cycles.

In Chapters 34 and 35, we'll describe the short term cycles.

Finally, in Chapter 36, we'll illustrate the synthesis of all the progressed cycles covered in the preceding chapters.

An individual's response to a cycle depends, among other things, on the energy available to that individual, the energy described by the individual's core and modifiers. Karen, for instance, with strong energy devoted to carrying responsibility, is likely to find many opportunities in a cycle requiring the carrying of responsibility. Given the desire to take advantage of the available opportunities, Karen is likely to find much in the way of growth and expansion. On the other hand, Arthur, with strong energy devoted to the expression of freedom, may find that same cycle full of obstacles and restrictions.

The response to a cycle probably will vary with age as well as desire for development. A child of ten usually reacts differently to a cycle emphasizing rest and meditation than an adult of twenty-five. A twenty year old is apt to react differently to a cycle stressing hdrd work than a forty year old. A person eager for growth is likely to use whatever influences are available and, in his own unique way, turn them to advantage. The individual less interested in growth may use only those influences which are harmonious with his own energies. He will probably struggle or rebel against influences less directly related to his energies.

The progressed delineation, then, should include not only the influences operating on an individual at a given time, but a description of the individual's probable reaction to those influences. I usually delineate the subject's probable approach to the events and opportunities expected, but, if possible, I also indicate alternate approaches which may bring less problems along with additional growth.

How an individual responds to the influences of the progressed cycles

The progressed cycl.es are derived from the birthdate and

When we've listed the years, the chart would look like Figure 27-2, page 476.

You can see that the rows on the right-hand side, up to the break at least, do indeed each represent one year. Let's look at this just a little more closely.

As the years proceed down the chart, the line at the top of each row represents the beginning of the year and the line at the bottom of the row represents the end of the year.

The first row represents 1958. Line L represents the beginning of the year, January 1, 1958. Line M represents the end of the year, December 31, 1958.
