§1 - Introductory Comments: What is a Solar Return?

Introduction

You have certainly heard the expression "Many happy returns!"  - a reference to the annual cycle that begins at your date of birth.  The astrological Solar Return is a chart cast for the moment when the Sun returns to the exact position it held in your Natal horoscope.  Each year the Solar Return marks the start of your personal New Year, and astrologers look to the Solar Return horoscope to see what events and issues await you in the year ahead.

Astrologers have proposed many methods for interpreting the Solar Return chart.  This report follows the method of Alexandre Volguine (1903-1976), a French astrologer who, in 1937, first published his 15 years of research on Returns.  Until his death in 1976, Volguine continued to update his study of Returns in subsequent editions of his classic text, "LA TECHNIQUE DES REVOLUTIONS SOLAIRES".  For those interested in the astrological theory, the method of Volguine is outlined in the appendix to this report.

In accord with Volguine's method, this report is based on a Return chart cast for your location (which may be different from your birth place) when the Sun returns to its position in your Natal chart.  Because we insert an extra day into the calendar every four years during the leap year, your Solar Return may occur either on, or a day before or after, your calendar birthday.

If you do not know your exact time of birth, you can still do a general Return chart by using as your presumed "birth time" the exact moment of sunrise on your birth date.  The Solar Return chart calculated from a sunrise birth chart provides a generally accurate astrological forecast for the year ahead; but, if possible, use your actual time of birth to get the most accurate forecast.

According to the astrological theory of Solar Returns, the Natal chart represents a basic blueprint of the individual (similar to the DNA within the nucleus of the cell) and the Return chart reveals the annual renewal or reactivation of the Natal chart as measured against both the ongoing movement of the planets and the newly generated set of House cusps at the time the individual's Natal Sun is "reborn" at the annual (SR) birthday.  A key feature of Return chart interpretation involves studying the relationship between the annual Return Houses and the birth chart Houses.

Beginning with the next section, this report will review and interpret the major factors identified by Volguine for identifying the themes and events that will dominate your life during the coming year.  The current Solar Return chart actually spans a period of about a year and a half because its influence is felt from three months before the current birthday until three months after next year's birthday.  This three-month transitional overlap between subsequent Returns represents the period when the themes of one year gradually give way to those of the next.


A note on stressful aspects:

In some delineations you will read that an adverse event could occur if the planet being discussed forms discordant aspects in the chart.  The harsh aspects are the semi-square (45 degrees), the square (90 degrees), the sesqui-square (135 degrees), the inconjunct (150 degrees), and the opposition (180 degrees).  In addition, the conjunction (joining together) of certain pairs of planets is intrinsically difficult because of the conflicting nature of the planets involved.  To determine whether a stressful aspect is in effect, you may need to refer to the section where the aspects formed by the planet were first discussed in the report.

Into every life a little rain must fall.  Do not be alarmed if negative predictions show up in various sections of this report.  Stressful events often hover as potentials in the background but never materialize.  The repetition of a trend in several parts of the horoscope chart is the key to accurate prediction in astrology.  In general, adverse events occur only when many aspects or configurations repeatedly point toward their manifestation.  If a stressful event is mentioned but once or twice, it is unlikely to manifest.  In any case, forewarned is forearmed.

On Aspect Strengths:  Next to the aspects you will often find a listing of the "strength" of the aspect.  The number you see is based on how close the aspect is to being exact.  The higher the number, the more exact the aspect.  The aspects range in strength from a low of about 1 to a high of about 8.  Theoretically, the very close aspects are more likely to manifest in your life.


Astrological Houses in the Return Chart

If you are not familiar with astrology, it will help to know a little about the astrological Houses as you read this report.  You probably know that there are 12 signs of the zodiac.  In a similar way, astrologers divide the horoscope wheel into 12 "Houses," which look like a pie cut into 12 pieces.  Each House represents a particular area of life.  The 1st House starts at the Ascendant, which is the point where the zodiac circle in the heavens crosses the horizon in the east.  By convention the Ascendant lies at the "9 o'clock" point on the circle. The remaining Houses follow the 1st House in a counterclockwise direction around the wheel so that the 10th House, which symbolizes your career and standing in the world, lies at the very top of the chart.  The entry point into each House is called its cusp.  Below is a list of the twelve Houses and some of their key meanings for reference as you read this report.

1st House: your body, personality, personal initiatives, life force.

2nd House: money, income, possessions, values.

3rd House: communication, analytical thinking, writing, local travel, siblings, neighbors.

4th House: home, family, parents, past conditioning, final endings.

5th House: fun, romance, recreation, vacations, children, sports, gambling, creative self-expression.

6th House: service, health concerns, daily grind, subordinates, tenants, pets.

7th House: significant others, consultants, partnerships, contracts, lawsuits, open enemies, the public.

8th House: death, sex, taxes, joint finances, surgery, investigation, transformation, occult studies.

9th House: higher education, long-distance travel, religion, philosophy, the law, foreign interests, publishing, broadcasting.

10th House: career, worldly status, honors, public standing, reputation authority, bosses, parental figures.

11th House: friends, hopes & wishes, group involvements.

12th House: solitude, imaginative endeavors, confinement, hospitalization, spiritual pursuits, loss of freedom, secret enemies, self-undoing.




§2.0 - The Solar Return Sun: The Central Focus of the Year

General Significance of the Sun

The Sun, ruler of Leo, is the most important "planet" in the Return.  The primal energy of the Sun makes possible our life on earth.  The Sun enlivens, asserts, illuminates, vitalizes, promotes, fathers, energizes, individualizes, elevates, and makes conscious.  Astrological aspects involving the Sun show how we achieve (or fail to achieve) honor, status, recognition, achievement, and individuation - how we shine, create, and make our mark on the world.  People signified by the Sun include fathers, husbands, mature men, bosses, authority figures, and people of influence.  In health matters, the Sun symbolizes the heart and the spine.

The Return placement and aspects of the Sun may involve us either personally through health matters and life circumstances governed by the Sun, or indirectly through people symbolized by the Sun. We will next look at the zodiacal sign and House positions of the Sun in the Solar Return chart.


Return Sun in Aquarius

The Return Sun occupies the exact location in the same sign as the Sun in your birth chart. Having the Sun in Aquarius generally makes you friendly, sociable, generous, progressive, independent, freedom loving, communicative, broadminded, humanitarian, easygoing, original, inventive, idealistic, skeptical, and dispassionate.  Your faults may include being too oppositional, rebellious, stubborn, detached, perverse, eccentric, or unconventional.

Having considered the sign containing the Sun, we now turn to the Sun's Return House position, which highlights the central themes of the year ahead.


§2.1 - The House Occupied by the Sun: Major Issues of the Year

Return Sun in the Return 2nd House

The Sun occupies your Return 2nd House and places the focus on financial matters, values, and possessions.  Decisions that you make this year could have considerable impact on your income or economic outlook.  Important changes are taking place in your finances and also in your sense of self-worth.  This is a good year to review your monetary circumstances, revise your budget, and make necessary sales or purchases.  You need to align your values and spending habits with your core sense of identity.

If the 2nd House Sun forms stressful aspects with other planets in the Return chart, you may encounter money problems or you may find yourself raising questions about your own worth.


§2.2 - The Sun's Aspects in the Solar Return Chart

Return Sun oppose Return Saturn  (Strength:  5.13)

Saturn limits, restricts, and disciplines the vitality of the Sun.  This is a year when you may feel drained, isolated, sad, frustrated, and alone.  You could lose sleep because of feeling burdened and overwhelmed by your many obligations.  New responsibilities enter your life. Even pleasant happenings, such as increased income, may carry with them the burden of deciding how to wisely invest.  From time to time, take a break to restore your health or recoup your energy.

Not infrequently Sun/Saturn aspects manifest as depression or physical illness.  This could be due to some type of blockage, calcification, crystallization, obstruction, or to a chronic health condition.  Be sure to seek professional attention if you are feeling under the weather.  This aspect often correlates with the ending of an important phase of your life.  It can signify a period of major stress and tension, such as overwork, personal illness, or unemployment.  You may also need to deal with  the illness or passing of a parental figure or of a significant man in your life.


Return Sun conjunct Return Neptune  (Strength:  4.28)

Neptune aspecting the Sun heightens your intuition and creative imagination.  This can be a year of artistic, musical, poetic, or religious inspiration.  Significant spiritual or conversion experiences may lead to an awareness of hidden dimensions of the universe.  Success results from your ability to tune into the moods and feelings of others, but you must be careful not to let negative vibrations from others get you down.  You also become more attuned to your own inner psychological states and motivations.

Events may occur to dissolve the boundaries that limit your ego, to enhance your appreciation of life and death, and to make you more aware of the universality of human experience.  You may engage in activities that selflessly assist others or promote the common good.  Glamour, glitz, and illusion become appealing.  You may want to reserve time alone for reflection, prayer, and meditation.  Be careful with the use of drugs and alcohol.  On occasion, hospitalization or confinement may be indicated.  Neptune is a slow-moving planet and this influence may be felt for several years.

Activities related to the Houses of the Return chart with Pisces on their cusps will be especially highlighted during the year.


Return Sun trine Return Midheaven  (Strength:  3.71)

This promises to be a favorable year for career advancement and fulfilling your vocation in life.  Success, honors, awards, and public recognition often accompany this placement. Students may receive diplomas or advanced degrees.  Promotions may occur in the work arena.  Others acknowledge your accomplishments, and you are able to shine and make your mark on the world.




§3.0 - The Solar Return Ascendant: Personal Themes for the Year

The Ascendant-Descendant or East-West Axis in the SR chart

The East-West Axis of the astrological map represents the Celestial Horizon.  The Ascendant (in the East) signifies the filter through which you view the world and the manner in which you project your personality toward others.  It also reflects your physical body and your personal initiatives.   The Descendant (in the West) symbolizes your partnerships, close relationships, and the way you get along with other people.

Planets that form close aspects with the East-West Axis of the Return chart will color your personality style, personal initiatives, and manner of relating.  The degree of the zodiac rising in the East (the Ascendant) varies with your location on earth at the time of your Solar Return.  If the Return Ascendant receives particularly stressful aspects, some astrologers advise their clients to travel to a location that will minimize or negate those aspects on the day of their Solar Return.  In the following section we consider the influence of the horizon (Ascendant-Descendant) axis in the year ahead.


Return Ascendant in Capricorn

The Capricorn Ascendant emphasizes matters related to the responsible, reserved, and status-conscious sign of the mountain goat.  This is a time when you may assume new responsibilities and reap the rewards of your self-discipline and determination to achieve your worldly ambitions.  If you have been working industriously toward a goal in recent years, you may now receive an honor, award, or other form of public recognition.  You should use your sense of humor to balance your no-nonsense, rule-bound, and results-oriented approach to life.

Respect and status are important issues.  Dealings with the establishment, with the rules of society, with parents, or with those in authority may occupy much of your time.  You feel a need for structure, and you may now lay down roots to establish yourself in the community. Professional advancement could require the use of your teaching, organizational, management, negotiation, or leadership skills.  This may also be a year when you buy, sell, refinance, or invest in real estate.  Whatever you do, you will be making important decisions and tying up loose ends so that you can begin to realize your ambitions. Because the Ascendant signifies your body, check to see whether the Ascendant itself or the Ascendant's ruler Saturn forms stressful aspects.  If so, you could encounter health problems during the year.

The Houses of your Natal chart with Capricorn on the cusp as well as the House of your Return chart that contains Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, indicate areas of your life that will be in high focus during the coming year.  Planets that form close aspects to Saturn in the Return chart indicate the types of people and events involved.

Because the planet Saturn rules the sign Capricorn, Saturn is the ruler of the Ascendant in this year's Return chart.


§3.1 - The SR House Containing the Planet Ruling the SR Ascendant

Return Saturn in the Return 8th House

Return Saturn occupying the Return 8th House makes you serious about matters related to joint finances, a partner's income, sexuality, investigation, death, inheritance, and human mortality.  This is a year to tie up loose ends financially and, if possible, to get out of debt. A partner's earnings could become limited.  Sexual difficulties may surface.  You may need to assume added responsibilities related to taxes, loans, insurance, joint resources, the care of someone who is dying, a legacy, or the goods of the dead.  Tremendous self-discipline and resourcefulness can accompany this placement.  A serious interest in occult subjects or near-death experiences may develop.  On occasion, a need for surgery or other major healing intervention may be indicated.  Saturn here can also indicate the death of someone you care about.


§3.2 - The Natal House Highlighted by the Solar Return Ascendant

Return Ascendant in the Natal 3rd House

The Natal House placement of the Return Ascendant shows where you are most likely to take personal action during the coming year.  Your dominant interests and activities will center on 3rd House issues such as visits, frequent trips, mental work, studies, communication, news, announcements, phone calls, dealings with siblings and neighbors, and relationships in your immediate environment.  You will be frequently on the go, perhaps attending school or going to meetings, negotiations, and conferences.  Writing, editing, teaching, translating, or various types of literary work may occupy your time.

The Return Ascendant-Descendant axis also highlights 9th House matters such as religious and philosophical concerns, ethical issues, higher education, legal concerns, publishing, broadcasting, forecasting, flying, long-distance travel, and dealings with foreigners.  It would not be unusual for you to be in the news or to appear on TV or radio in such a year.


§3.3 - Aspects involving the Ascendant in the Solar Return Chart

Return Ascendant conjunct Return Pluto  (Strength:  4.99)

With Pluto conjunct the Return Ascendant, you may undergo radical changes in your appearance and more importantly in your core sense of personal identity.  Such changes may follow upon peak experiences or encounters with powerful forces beyond human control.  Situation you encounter may cause you to reflect on your own mortality as you try to sort out who you truly are.  This aspect calls to mind the parable of the grain of wheat that must fall into the ground and die if it wishes to grow.

During this Return year, events that seem fated to happen serve to eliminate the dross from your life and bring about personal transformation. You may be suddenly thrust into the limelight.  Others are impressed by your charisma, animal magnetism, and passionate nature.  Your sexual desires become intense, but at the same time you feel a greater need for privacy and seclusion.  On occasion Pluto conjunct an angle may indicate a need for surgery or other powerful healing methods.   In rare cases Pluto in this position may signal a brush with death or at least concerns about your own mortality.

Because the Return Ascendant shows where you take personal action during the year, the House(s) of the Return and Natal charts with Scorpio on the cusp will be especially significant during this Return year.


§3.4 - Planets Rising in the First House of the Solar Return Chart

Solar Return Planets occupying the Solar Return First House

The Return 1st House reveals your yearly personal or psychological activity.  Any planets that occupy the Return 1st House show the nature of your activity and your psychological reactions during the coming year.  If a planet lies close to the Return Ascendant (within 5 degrees), you will have a fair amount of personal control over the action.  Planets in the 1st House that lie further away from the Return Ascendant (more than 5 degrees) indicate that you will have less control and be more at the mercy of the forces symbolized by those planets.

The Return planets that occupy your Return 1st House are listed below.  If this section is blank, there are no 1st House planets in your Return chart.


Return Mars in the Return 1st House

Taking action regarding personal projects and initiatives

Mars, the action planet, shows where you direct your energy.  Assertive Mars in the 1st House enhances your self-confidence, enterprise, and initiative.  This is a year when you can readily start new projects, take on challenges, and advance your personal goals.  You are able to be decisive and assertive, but you may also need to watch your temper.  You may wish to utilize this energy for self-improvement.  You might wish, for example, to alter your appearance, begin an exercise program, or change the way you are perceived by others.  Family members or associates could involve you in their disputes or conflicts at this time.  There is a risk of accidents, injuries, or illness.  You will need to guard against rash, aggressive, or impulsive behaviors.  Excessive speed or haste is likely to have untoward consequences.




§4.0 - The Solar Return Midheaven: Worldly Status, Career, and Public Activity

The North-South or Meridian Axis of the Solar Return Chart

The North-South or Meridian Axis of the astrological map represents your vocation, public image, parents, and family matters.  The Midheaven at the top of the chart (due south in those charts of the northern hemisphere) symbolizes your career, worldly status, and public activities.  The Imum Coeli (I.C.) at the bottom of the chart signifies your home, your domestic life, and the final conclusion of pending affairs.

Planets that form close aspects with the North-South Axis of the Return chart will color vocational and family matters during the year.  The degree of the zodiac on your Return Midheaven depends on your location on earth at the time of your Solar Return.  If the Return Midheaven receives particularly stressful aspects, some astrologers advise their clients to travel to a location that will minimize or negate those aspects on the day of their Solar Return.  In the following section we consider the influence of the meridian axis in your Return chart.


Return Midheaven in Libra

The Midheaven in Libra suggests that your career, status, and public activities will involve collaboration, partnership, and the balancing of relationships.  Your capacity for objectivity, fairness, justice, and harmony can lead to career advancement.  If there are indicators of marriage in the Return chart, this placement would give further confirmation.

The House position of the Return Midheaven's planetary ruler gives further information about your social reputation and vocation in the year ahead.  The planet ruling the Return Midheaven is discussed below.

Because the planet Venus rules the sign Libra, Venus is the ruler of the Midheaven in this year's Return chart.


§4.1 - The SR House Containing the Planet Ruling the SR Midheaven

Return Venus in the Return 3rd House

Benefic Venus in your Return 3rd House is a fortunate influence for writing, speech, and communication.  You can express yourself in a pleasant and charming manner.  Social invitations or love letters may come in the mail.  You could spend time enjoyably with siblings, kin, and neighbors.  Success comes in sales and commerce.  Trips and visits for fun are in the offing.  You may indulge yourself in mental pleasures and intellectual pastimes.


§4.2 - The Natal House Highlighted by the Solar Return Midheaven

Return Midheaven in the Natal 12th House

The Return Midheaven lies at the top of the Return chart where it reveals the actions and circumstances of your life that will be most visible to others during the coming year.  When the Return Midheaven lies in your Natal 12th House, it highlights the benefits of quiet contemplation in the pursuit of spiritual truths.  You will need to confront personal limitations in order to achieve professional advancement.  The health and/or hospitalization of a parent, other family member, or close associate could occupy your attention.  You may have official dealings with a charitable, health care, or service organization.  This placement may be accompanied by a feeling of discontent about your career and position in society.  You must be careful to avoid making decisions that can harm your career or public image.


§4.3 - Aspects involving the Midheaven in the Solar Return Chart

Return Midheaven trine Return Neptune  (Strength:  5.57)

Neptune in harmonious aspect with the Midheaven heightens your idealism and often indicates an interest in spiritual matters.  Success may come in artistic, imaginative, glamorous, or creative endeavors.  You may find yourself pursuing your dreams without regard for practical matters.  This is an excellent aspect for actors, writers, musicians, and for anyone for whom creativity, illusion, and popular appeal are an integral part of their work.


Return Midheaven square Return Mars  (Strength:  4.68)

With Mars squaring the Return Midheaven, you are likely to put a great deal of energy into career matters.  This is a year when you can be decisive, resolute, dynamic, pioneering, and independent in pursuing your goals.  A change in career is possible.  You may take on new responsibilities or assume a position of leadership.  The square aspect warns you to guard against rash, hurried, or premature actions.  Problems could arise due to wrong instructions, poor planning, excessive haste, or misguided arrangements.  Because the Midheaven can signify parental and authority figures, you may need to devote extra time and effort to matters related to a parent or to the demands of society.


Return Midheaven trine Return Sun  (Strength:  3.71)

This interpretation appeared previously in section §2.2 - The Sun's Aspects in the Solar Return Chart.


Return Midheaven sextile Return Saturn  (Strength:  3.08)

Saturn in harmonious aspect with the Midheaven enables you to be serious and responsible about matters of career, reputation, ambition, public standing, and your role in society.  This can be a time of long hours and hard work, but you will also learn a great deal.  You could assume a position of authority.  People of power and influence are likely to support your efforts.  If you put in the necessary work and honest effort, this can be a year of great accomplishment.


Return Midheaven conjunct Return Part of Fortune  (Strength:  2.05)

With the Midheaven favorably aspecting the Part of Fortune in your Return chart, you can expect to receive some type of award, honor, diploma, publicity, or recognition for past accomplishments.  This often correlates with a job promotion or some other elevation in status.  This aspect benefits matters related to vocation, authority, worldly image or status, and parental issues.  It is not uncommon to achieve success and advancement in your career.  Be on the lookout for opportunities to enhance your standing before others.


Return Midheaven sextile Return Moon  (Strength:  1.94)

The return Moon favorably aspecting the Midheaven benefits career, family, and domestic concerns.  Others see you as more caring and emotionally available. Opportunities arise that allow you to follow your bliss.  Relationships with family members flow smoothly.  You may be offered a better job or an increase in income.  A beneficial change in residence or an improvement in your home environment may accompany this aspect.  Women may play an important role in your professional advancement.


Return Midheaven conjunct Natal Ascendant  (Strength:   3.60 )

The Return Midheaven falling on your Natal Ascendant indicates a significant and memorable year with regard to career, public image, social status, family life, and professional advancement.  Your personal efforts over the past few years now pay off. Fortune smiles on you, and there may be a ceremony or other type of public recognition to honor what you have been doing with your life.  Under this influence, students often receive academic awards or advanced degrees, workers achieve job promotions, lovers join in matrimony, politicians are elected to office, the religious are ordained to the ministry, authors publish their books, and so on.  This is also a time to pay close attention to your relationship with your parents, especially your mother.


Return Midheaven sextile Natal Moon  (Strength:   1.81 )

This pleasant aspect increases your sensitivity, compassion, and nurturing instincts. Changes in your circumstances increase your feelings of security.  Family and domestic matters proceed smoothly.  Emotional ties with others, especially with members of the opposite sex, are particularly enhanced.


§4.4 - Planets in the Tenth House of the Solar Return Chart

SR Planets in the Solar Return Tenth House

The Return 10th House relates to career, family, worldly status, and any public actions you take during the year.  The Return planets that occupy the Return 10th House reveal the nature of such public activity and how it may affect your vocational and family life.

The Return planets that occupy your Return 10th House are listed below.  If this section is blank, there are no 10th House planets in your Return chart.


Return Part of Fortune in the Return 10th House

Others recognize your worth

The Part of Fortune in the Return 10th House indicates success in career and vocational interests.  You could assume a position of leadership and authority.  Some form of honor or public recognition often accompanies this placement.  Expect positive changes in your worldly status.  Marriage or a change of residence sometimes accompanies this position.




§5.0 - The Solar Return Moon: Your Emotional Life

General Significance of the Moon

The Moon, ruler of Cancer, receives and reflects the light of the Sun.  As such, the Moon symbolizes the inner, reflective, receptive, emotional, and subconscious aspects of human life.  The Moon represents our feeling states, heredity, instincts, habit patterns, our early experiences with mothering, and our domestic life.  Astrological aspects involving the Moon reveal how we react emotionally, and how we give or receive nurturing and comfort. People signified by the Moon include mothers, females in general, and the significant women in our lives.  In health matters, the Moon symbolizes cyclic changes, nutrition, and female issues; also, the breasts, the stomach, and the brain matter.

The Return placement and aspects of the Moon may involve us either personally through health matters and life circumstances governed by the Moon, or indirectly through people symbolized by the Moon.  Lunar aspects that are said to perfect on a certain date have an orb of a month or longer.  We will next consider the Return zodiacal sign and House placements of the Moon.


Return Moon in Sagittarius

The Moon in Sagittarius brings vitality and enthusiasm to your emotional life.  Your sense of adventure and thirst for new learning could find an outlet in advanced studies, philosophical interests, or travel to a foreign or distant locale.  Time spent outdoors or in athletic activities will be especially rewarding.  You will enjoy meeting new people of different cultures or backgrounds than your own.  You might even become invested in learning a new language at this time.  Personal freedom and a dislike of restriction can make it hard for you to commit emotionally to a partner during this period.  You will resonate strongly to the lyrics of the song, "don't fence me in."


Return Moon in the Return 12th House

The Moon, which reflects your feelings and emotional life, resides in your Return 12th House of solitude, sorrow, and spiritual development.  This year you should allow yourself time to look within as you examine where you have been and where you are headed with your life.  Meditation, prayer, respite, and reflection are especially beneficial.  Pay attention to your dreams and your inner life.  This is a good year to help those who are less fortunate. Any type of healing or therapeutic work is favored.  Matters that were previously hidden may now come to light.

As the 12th is the House of personal limitations and self-undoing, you should beware of excessive emotionality at the expense of reason, and avoid excessive use of drugs or alcohol.  This position could indicate loss, bereavement, illness, time spent in a hospital, or some other type of confinement.  Individuals with emotional problems may become a source of sorrow in your life.


§5.1 - Aspects involving the Moon in the Solar Return Chart

Return Moon conjunct Return Jupiter  (Strength:  6.75)

The Moon in aspect with Jupiter brings optimism, joy, good fortune, and pleasant experiences into your life.  Close personal relationships bring much satisfaction.  Your popularity increases, and you excel at any dealings with the public.  Favorable publicity often accompanies this aspect.  Events occur that increase your happiness, emotional well being, and sense of security.  Success comes in social, domestic, and financial affairs. Rewarding religious experiences are possible.  If indications of marriage occur in the chart, this aspect supports the formation of a bond of love and nurturance.


Return Moon square Return Venus  (Strength:  3.96) - Aspect perfects on 4/18/2007.

The Moon discordantly aspecting Venus warns of potential conflict, tension, unpopularity, separation, or lack of appreciation in relationships.  Make a special effort to let significant others know how much you care about them.  You may undergo periods of moodiness and irritability during which you are swayed by emotion and may be unable to think rationally.

Return Pluto sextile Natal Ascendant  (Strength:   1.11 )

When comparing the Solar Return and the natal charts, any close alignment between a planet and a House cusp is highly significant.  In fact, the conjunctions of planets with House cusps in the superimposed natal and return charts usually pinpoint the major factors that will be operative during the year.   Pay close attention to the following three sections because they highlight the specific events that you will need to deal with in the coming Solar Return period.

Saturn on the cusp of the House of endings gives one pause to reflect upon human mortality, including the prospect of one's own final days on earth.
