Here’s a quick and dirty 2018 forecast for a fictional person, Saliya. Lots of details have been omitted as this is meant to be a general overview. I have omitted the relevant charts here due to time constraint. But if you are interested in looking at them, send me a private text. Read More »
A general forecast for this year for Mr Hillbilly. We are concentrating on his 2nd house, the Sun and the Moon which rules the 2nd house. We might also look at Uranus and Pluto as they make an aspect to the Sun in 2nd although I think Pluto might have a negative effect on the finances.Read More »
I was relooking at my 2017-18 solar return against my natal chart using a synastry grid just now. Read More »
I was looking at my solar return chart for my birthday this year for the nth time. The sun is in the 8th house. Yikes! Sun in 8th doesn’t have a good reputation unless you are used to transformations and the likes of it. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t necessarily think that it’s going to be a challenging year but it would be nice if life is more triny or sextily, in a good sense. Read More »
I will ‘fess up. I’m a bit worried. On my way home, I remembered that tomorrow is the day where transiting Pluto will cross over my solar return IC. Even as a professional astrologer, it can be a bit tough sometimes to focus on the positives of a transit.Read More »
Let’s use the Sun to plan every year of our life. Read More »
Some recent observations on solar returns:
A person has an emphasis on the fixed modality in his chart. There is hardly any emphasis on fixity in the solar return chart. The person may feel that he is standing on water.
A person’s MC ruler is in the 4th house. He is used to being in the background or hidden when it comes to his career. The Sun is on his MC in this year’s solar return. He finds it hard to come out from hiding and shine as a person as he’s just not used to it.
SR Saturn conjuncts natal Mars. There is no Saturn-Mars aspects natally. The person said that his every action is deliberate and calculated as he’s very conscious of how they will be perceived by others. Sounds like Saturn, a social planet, all right.
A client experienced solar Sun in 12th for the second time in her life this year. The first time took place when she was two years old. She lamented that this is the worst year of her life ever. She doesn’t have any planets in her natal 12th house.
Be sure to explore all possible meanings of a house or angle. For example, Betty has his SR Saturn conjunct her SR IC. Her parents, family, inner self are fine. I asked about home and she said that it’s kind of messy now (her natal 3rd house cusp is in Scorpio and Pluto is in the 3rd as well). So, there’s something relating to her housing situation.
I accidentally generated a solar return chart based on Lucan, a town in Dublin. Uranus will transit over SR Descendant on 1 May 2018. I spotted that and regenerated the SR chart correctly based on Cork where the client lives. Based on Cork, Uranus transits over SR Descendant on 25 September 2017 and 31 March 2018! What a great difference between the two timing! Granted the distance between the two places – Lucan and Cork is approximately 260km.
Based on the different locations, the timing of the story is different but the plot – Uranus conjunct Descendant stays the same.
I had a client, Mr Stoker, who completed his Cancer treatments last year and he’s “clear”. His concern is whether there might be a remission for the next 5 years. I ought to have a horary chart for that as it seems to be deeply rooted question for him. But I didn’t for whatever reason. I looked at his solar return (SR) chart for the coming year.Read More »
A timing technique in solar returns (SR) is to check for conjunctions of transiting outer planet against SR angles. Usually, that is done during the period of the SR. I have found that you can check for the conjunctions up to 2.5 months before the period of the SR. I don’t think there’s a fixed rule on how far back to look. But 2.5 months certainly worked for me and my clients. Read More »
