Fresh examples this week: Johnny Depp and Steve Ballmer.
Johnny Depp announced to retire from acting and see: transit Saturn square Progressed Sun (soon after T Saturn opposition MC) and transit Pholus opposition Sun. But he didn't stop immediately and they say that more 'Pirates' are to come. He is also 50 (rather young to stop) and rich (rich enough to stop). So when you see important transits and progressions of Saturn and Pholus, to retire may be on your mind, but it takes more to actually quit and say goodbye.
Microsoft CEO Steven Ballmer announced - last week - that he will retire within 12 months.
There are a few indications in his chart for this. Maybe progressed Ceres conjunct natal Sun might maybe wants to take better care of himself? And how about Saturn and Pholus?
1. Saturn was inconjunct natal Sun this year (lame duck transit) and
2. Saturn will be square Pholus in a few weeks time (time for a turning point)
3. Pholus is inconjunct natal Venus (selecting a turning point involving giving up)
4. Saturn is about to trine progressed Venus and
5. Saturn was inconjunct progressed Mercury (bye bye with a loss involved)
The first aspect that the progressed Sun (change of life style) will make is an opposition with Saturn.
Here is the chart, transits and progressions.

" A successful (Jupiter) movie (Neptune) star (Sun). Sometimes astrology is easy!:) "
PS Have I told you yet about the pattern of artistic talent in his chart? Here it is:
Moon sextile Neptune
Venus in Taurus
And then it stops, sorry! It seems that the famous exception in the range of examples of the astrological pattern of professional artistic talent has been found:)!
I also quit my job recently in a period of Transit Pholus conjunct and transit Saturn exactly semi square Sun and MC (together with this Pluto-Mercury transit and Neptune crossing my horizon). There were even more transits and progressions. See http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2013/07/the-difficult-decision-transit-pluto.html
