Astrology IRL: Annual Profections
A really cool thing in astrology is profections! Most people haven’t ever heard about annual profections before but they are super interesting.
You can gain a ton of insight into what’s going on in your life when you have a general knowledge of profections. The way profections work is each year of your life falls in a different astrology “house” of which there are 12. This cycle of 12 repeats itself through your life. From birth to the day you turn one, you are in the 1st house. From your first birthday to your second birthday, you are in the 2nd house, and so on.
In each year of your life there are different themes that are the focus—the themes become “activated” in the year you are in. The themes are the themes of the house. Reference the list below to look up your age and see what the themes you are dealing with this year, and what’s to come next for you! It’s fascinating the way it works. Profections can enable you to have more understanding for what’s going on in your life, especially if you are dealing with harder times in life. 🧡
