I’ve been tracking my lunar returns for many years. These charts tell my monthlong mood or emotional state. I look at them to get an idea what I’ll be dealing with, month to month.
This month I have Pluto conjunct my solar return ascendant. It’s not too handy, I want to blend in or fly under the wire.
Next month, I’ve got Gemini rising with ruler, Mercury conjunct Uranus in Aries. Quirky, assertive brain will be easier to pull off.
The month after, I have my Moon conjunct the ascendant. It looks like a sob story, frankly.
The following month, Pluto is back conjunct my ascendant. This is some summer, huh?
But I like knowing this stuff. It comes from playing cards when I was a kid. Sometimes you can get in and out, wad of cash in your hand. Other times, you’re left to sweat like some of those people you see playing poker on tv. This summer will be a longer run of that time.
Minding lunar returns has taught me a lot of about flow and patience. When someone goes does down or out, I give them a month. Two months. Whatever. Because these moods do come in and you may as well respect them. Not just your own but other people’s moods as well.
For example, there is no sense trying to get me to be fluffy this month. I’m focused and drilling down. Pluto, okay? If it’s not important, I’m not playing.
This is a really interesting area of study. If you want to look into it, we have the lunar return reports which are very inexpensive, especially if you buy a year of them. I think you’d be amazed at what you can learn via study of this very personal area of astrology. Check it out!
