Although widely used in astrology, transits are only one among a host of predictive techniques that have evolved over a years. Another method which is every bit as popular in a natal astrology is a system commonly referred to as 'day-for-year' progressions.
The principle on which this system works is - as the name implies - that everyday after your day of birth is equivalent to one year of your life. So if, your example, you were born at 17.48 GMT on 25th April, 1970, the positions of the planets and angles at exactly the same time the following day (26th April) would correspond to your first birthday - 25th April, 1971.
Continuing the conversions, the positions of the planets and Angles on 27th April would correspond to your second birthday, their positions on the 28th April would correspond to your third birthday, and so on.
Charts drawn up using this 'day-for-year' method are known as progressed charts, and are said to herald the issues or events for the year in question.
In other words, if your birthday is 25th April 1970 and you want to see what your twentieth year is likely to hold in store, you draw up a chart showing the planets' exact positions on 15th march (20 days on from your birthday - corresponding to 25th April 1990), then look at how these positions compare with each other and with those on your own birthchart.
The traditional view of Progression is to see them as indicators of inner psychological growth and change, while transits relate more to external events and conditions we meet in the world around us.
Progressions are strong where transits are weak - namely,  with the inner planets  and the Angels. As far as transits are concerened, these move too quickly to have more than a fleeting significance, and the emphasis is always on the slow-moving planets.
With progression the focus switches to inner planets and Angles because on a day-for-year basis the rate at which these move, or 'progress', is much slower - slow enough, in fact  for them to make significant aspects to planets and the Angles in the birthchart.
The generally accepted view is that a progression lasts as long as it  takes the progressed planet to pass 1 degree either side of a natal planet or Angle. However the energies symbolized by the progressed and natal planets will be at their most intense when the aspect is exact.
Though progressions are widely used for timing the events. However  the accurate birth time is very important for giving the correct interpretations.  In case birth time is not accurate this method should not be preferred.
Progressions are generally calculated by two general methods. "Solar arc method"   and  "Sidereal time method". Our software Aryabhatt provides for both the methods of calculating the progression.
