For some reason, people are almost always daunted by their solar return.
If you’re a beginner, a solar return is a chart of drawn for the time your Sun (solar) returns to the exact place it was when you were born. This is also known as your birthday!
It’s possible for your solar return to take place one day before or one day after your birthday. In whatever case the Solar Return chart offers insight into the year ahead, birthday to birthday.
You keep your natal chart of course. But thesolar return gives strong clues as to what you’ll be doing during the year ahead.
For example, I am a person in service – always. This is shown by my natal chart but the solar return will show the theater of operation (when there is an emphasis on a house); my struggles (hard aspects) and various other sundries.
My current solar return is open (Jupiter) and parental (10th). There is a lot of work and service shown as well as contact with death (perhaps sudden and unexpected).
So far, I’ve just been visiting, and now cooking an elderly friend with end-stage cancer. I met her via a fluke in November. We really hit it off which was mildly surprising but what surprises even more, is that she’s still here, seeing as the cancer has spread to her fingers and her toes and we’ve known this for months!
I was in a person’s company, recently. I truly thought, in the moment that the man was about to die. This is exactly what I was thinking. “Are these the last moments of this man’s life?”
They were not.
To be specific, I’m dealing with Venus/Mars/Saturn/Uranus & Pluto all mashed up. I’ll say terrain has been treacherous. However I am in no hurry to trade it in on next years which looks to be one for the record books.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ll play the cards, whatever they may be but it sure helps to know what you’re holding!
