The website Astro.com has a feature that calculates solar return and lunar return charts automatically. The solar return shows the year’s solar energy as the sun returns to its natal position. Likewise, the lunar return is a monthly happening, where the moon meets its birth placement, relating to the emotional body. While the website doesn’t automatically calculate such things, charts can be done for the other personal planets as well.
I’ve always been interested in my love life and relationships so I like to look at my Venus and Juno returns. It’s been as much an academic interest as anything pointed but over time I feel as though I’ve seen some things of note. The way I do this is to find my exact Venus and Juno degrees and the general time they’re approaching their return, then I play with the “birth time” in calculating the chart until it reaches exact.
My Juno return happened in early August this year and it looked all right but I didn’t really think about it all that much. A month later when my man and I got engaged I realized that transiting Juno was hitting my Juno return vertex and that the vertex of my Venus return chart was conjunct my natal Juno. I don’t think they are necessarily anything I would have pegged ahead of time as “oh this particular thing is going to happen,” but the energy certainly was there to see. It’s pretty clear that commitment was an issue, though I’m pretty sure it could have gone either way. Still, it’s an interesting thing to note and I thought I’d pass it along!
Have you looked at your planetary return charts? Have you noticed any interesting synchronicities?
