“When an irresistible force such as you meets an old immovable object like me, you can bet as sure you live: something’s gotta give, something’s gotta give, something’s gotta give.”
Today is my birthday, but yesterday was my solar return. Yesterday the Sun returned to the exact degree it was on the day I was born. The solar return chart expresses the energies present at the moment of renewal of your Sun energies. Interpreting that chart shows how the year will play out for your ego energy, your ego self, pretty darned big news if you ask me. My solar return chart incorporates the t-square that happened yesterday morning between Venus, Saturn and the Moon. It also has Pluto angular (important) in the 7th house.
I suppose I could get all het up about what could be construed as some really difficult energy set to play out for me, but I’m not. There’s also a grand trine in earth and Jupiter on my north node. What I see is a year where big changes are possible and likely, and I like that. This is no namby-pamby baby year. This year looks like a big wave and I’m gonna ride it.
I looked at last year’s solar return again as well, and there are a few things I’ll be glad to say goodbye to. Goodbye Pisces Moon-Mercury conjunct my Chiron quincunxing my ascendant! Goodbye looking like I’m going to weep at the drop of a hat! I also looked ahead at next year’s chart and it looks fantastic to me… and that certainly gives me the impetus to make the most of this year so I can do even better NEXT year.
What does your solar return look like for this year? What about next year? Do you track them from year to year? If you do, you can see how one can build on the last and make the most out of where you are now. Elsa offers really fabulous solar return reports for purchase. They’re truly excellent. Even knowing how to do my own I was blown away by what they said.
