Transfer of Light

Transfer of light is a specific type of configuration that occurs when a fast moving planet separates from an exact Ptolemaic aspect with one planet and then applies to an exact aspect with another planet.

Transfer of light is more widely known as translation of light, since this is the terminology that was used in some of the early English manuals on astrology beginning in the 17th century.
