What do the planets say?
It is much like the sound a car makes when it drives past you. The sound gets louder and more intense as it gets closer to you, with the loudest or most intense when the car is closest to you. Yet, as soon as the car passes the sound fades very quickly.
Transits are signs and I advise people to just carry on with life, but be aware of things. It's like driving along and you see a sign that warns of danger (falling rocks or an uphill) or of easy and smooth driving (perhaps a downhill). You aren't going to stop driving, but you're just aware of the road ahead and this helps you to plan and be prepared.
