Steps in Forecasting Events

(author unknown) NOTE: When forecasting always remember that nothing can come GOOD or POOR that is not shown in the NATAL Chart. Astrologers who forget this will make incorrect forecasts for sure. Also, different persons act differently towards transits and progressions because of the effect of the SOLAR RETURN effecting the matter at hand, OR they have the same aspect in their natal chart and have become accustomed to handling it maturely or not over the years because they have lived with it so long, OR the age of the soul of the individual is different..older souls are generally able to handle matters more maturely and at times will not even be influenced at all by certain aspects. You will hear them say "That doesn't bother me". Make a note on their natal that they are not effected by transits to such and such, and which transits or progressions these are, but check the SOLAR first before you do as it may be temporarily relieving the stress and they actually are effected by the aspect. Please remember that you can get lost in the woods in forecasting by considering too many things at once...concentrate on the houses where the action is...planets, transits, progressions, solars...and again, make sure that the influence shows in the natal chart.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

PROCEDURE
1. 2. 3. Determine what area of life you are questioning. Go to the house/houses that govern that area of life. Interpret the meaning of the SIGN on the cusp of the house/houses involved using sign traits, quality, element, positive and negative. Of special interest: a) b) c) 4. Cardinal - you go out and cause the events to happen to you. Fixed - events come to you which you do not control. Mutable - brings a slow inner change rather than events.

See what planets are in the house/houses involved...the more you find, the more important the matter: a) b) c) Interpret the influence of each planet by the MEANING of the planet and what it rules. Interpret if the planet is malefic (Mars, Saturn and at times Uranus and Neptune)...or benefic (Venus and Jupiter). Note the SIGN each planet NATURALLY RULES (as Venus naturally rules Taurus and Libra). Go around the chart to the house/houses with that sign on them..matters of that house will be connected with matters of the house you are considering. (Obviously this can get to be quite complicated if a lot of planets are in the house you are considering as each planet will refer you to one or two more houses and at times it will seem the whole chart and every realm of your life is involved in the matter which is probably just what is happening..it's an involved time...joyously, sadly, or both at once.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

d)

Interpret the ASPECTS to the planets in the house/houses you are considering. 1. Especially look for benefic and malefic aspects and benefic and malefic planets contacting each other. (Malefic planets sometimes act beneficially especially when all aspected as Saturn). Interpret the house the ASPECTING PLANET BRINGS IN..that is, interpret the house where the other planet in the aspect is..matters of that house are important to the matters of the house you are questioning. NOTE: If that "other" house has planets in it too, you will have a lot of work to do as it will be affected by the other planets.

If something is happening in your life and it doesn't show up after doing all of this...then interpret the ASPECTS by NATURAL HOUSE ASSOCIATION.

The Solar Return


1. WHAT IS A SOLAR RETURN? It is a chart calculated the same way one calculates the natal chart except that it is calculated for that "exact moment" when the SUN RETURNS to the exact DEGREE and MINUTE it is in the BIRTH CHART. a. It is calculated once a year AFTER the person's 4

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

birthday, hour, and minute has passed. b. You wait until your birthday has passed because the SOLAR RETURN MUST be calculated for the CITY, STATE, COUNTRY you were in at the time of your birth hour and date. You do not use the city, state, country where you were ACTUALLY BORN. In effect the SOLAR RETURN is RELOCATED to the place you were when your birth hour and minute occurred. The SOLAR RETURN is done as a PART of the TOTAL technique of prediction. In America most astrologers rely heavily on TRANSITS and PROGRESSIONS in their predictions. In Europe most astrologers rely heavily on TRANSITS and SOLAR RETURNS. A complete system should really include all three methods of prediction. SOLAR RETURNS frequently fall on the day before or after your actual birth DATE because of leap year. Many people calculate their SOLAR RETURNS a few months before their birthday actually falls. If they do not like the looks of it, they re-calculate the return for several different cities they could possibly travel to and be in on the day of their birth. If they like one of the new returns enough they arrange to be in that city when their birth hour occurs. It is only necessary to remain in that city for the ACTUAL MOMENT OF BIRTH, but since most birth hours are OFF as much as fifteen to twenty minutes, it is advisable to stay about an hour on either side of your birth hour and minute. Some astrologers advise staying in the city for a 24 hour period. This is really not necessary and you could safely move on an hour after your birth time if you are only in transit using that city to place the SOLAR RETURN where you desire it. By changing your location you cause the Ascendant in the SOLAR RETURN to change either by degrees and minutes or as much as a change in sign. This generally requires a move of some distance where the SOLAR RETURN would occur if you did not go anywhere. A great deal has to do with where you were born in the first place. In instances where grave danger or severe conditions show in the SOLAR RETURN, some will 5

Overlay the Annual SOLAR RETURN onto the Natal Birth Chart. Examine the ASC (The ASC and MC are the most important single factors). 1. Examine the natal house where the annual Solar Ascendant falls. 2. Examine the sign on the annual Ascendant. 3. Examine the meaning of the SUPERIMPOSITION of the Ascendant in that house. 4. Examine the RULER OF THE ASCENDANT in the SOLAR RETURN. a) The SOLAR HOUSE it is in and aspects to the RULER.

NOTE: With Major Aspects, there will be more events. With Minor Aspects except the Quincunx, the effects will be more psychological. c. Examine the SOLAR planets in the SOLAR FIRST HOUSE and any aspects to these planets. CONSIDER ALL ASPECTS to these planets giving the psychological as well as the possibility of events occurring. If there are no major aspects to the ASC and to the FIRST HOUSE, then the influence of the minor aspects will be used and they will give more of a PSYCHOLOGICAL influence rather than bringing about EVENTS during the year. MINOR ASPECTS could bring about a philosophical, religious, or ideological evolution during the year in matters shown by the ASC and the FIRST HOUSE should there be very few or no major aspects to the ASC and the FIRST HOUSE. Consider the annual MC the same way as you did the annual ASC. Consider the annual SOLAR house superimpositions in the same way. Pay special attention to HOUSES and their matters in all interpretations..especially houses with a group of 6

planets in them..stelliums. g. Consider all other planets. Planets in ANGULAR HOUSES are VERY important and the more the number of planets falling in angular houses, the more important the year will be...the more important the SOLAR RETURN is likely to be. A planet RETURNING TO IT'S NATAL SIGN is read the same way as if it were the same planet in the same house in the natal chart. Consider all aspects to these other planets. 1) Aspects between planets in the SOLAR RETURN are the MOST IMPORTANT and show the strongest influences for the year. Rely on them.

Aspects between planets in the SOLAR RETURN to planets in the natal chart are not as strong an influence, but they do have an effect, especially if they are the BENEFIC PLANETS JUPITER AND VENUS or the Malefic PLANETS MARS AND SATURN.

In interpreting the ASPECTS, the CONJUNCT is the MOST IMPORTANT and should be given special attention.

THE SUPERIMPOSITION (OVERLAYING) THE ANNUAL HOUSE CUSPS OF THE SOLAR RETURN ONTO THE NATAL CHART.
1. 2. 3. The SUPERIMPOSITION TECHNIQUE is the key difference when interpreting a SOLAR RETURN. You need two charts to superimpose the houses: a) THE SOLAR RETURN and b) THE NATAL CHART. How to superimpose the annual SOLAR RETURN onto the natal chart: a. Get out your SOLAR RETURN for 1996 (or whatever year). b. Write down the DEGREE SIGN MINUTE of the ASC in the 7

SOLAR RETURN Now get out your natal chart. Locate what HOUSE this degree, sign & minute falls in your natal chart and this is where the SOLAR ASC falls in your natal chart. You are allowed to use a 5 orb. Using the system above do the same for each HOUSE CUSP IN THE SOLAR RETURN. As you become more adept at superimposing the house cusps you can then consider where the ENTIRE ANNUAL HOUSE FALLS. Frequently when interpreting this way you will become involved with three houses: The annual SOLAR HOUSE, and two natal houses. However, you can get quite an excellent interpretation considering only the house where the ANNUAL HOUSE CUSP FALLS allowing your five orb. These superimpositions WILL ALWAYS BE THE MOST IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER...the house wherein the SOLAR HOUSE CUSP falls. Using the 5 orb method, if the cusp falls into TWO HOUSES when allowing the 5 orb, the house where the EXACT house cusp falls is the most important, but you must consider both natal houses in your interpretation.

THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT 1. 2. This is the single most important factor to consider in the chart of the SOLAR RETURN. Matters of the HOUSE that the annual ASC falls in will ALWAYS be connected with the most important event of the year. Those house matters will dominate your interests above all other interests during the year..at times happily so...at times not so happy. That house will also show the overall atmosphere in which you will live during the year. Should the ANNUAL SOLAR ASC fall on the NATAL ASC (allow 1 orb) or on the natal MC (allow 1 orb) it will be a SIGNIFICANT YEAR IN YOUR LIFE.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

INTERPRETING THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL HOUSES


1. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL FIRST HOUSE This superimposition will give you a great deal of freedom to do as you wish during the year and you have the potential to fulfill mich of what shows in your birth chart if you pursue those affairs. If you do nothing, don't expect anything to come of it. You have free will to choose what you will do. The SOLAR return points out activities that can be pursued effectively as does the natal chart. It's up to you to fulfill your destiny effectively. Any planet which occupies the first house in the SOLAR RETURN will tend to decrease your freedom according to what the planet symbolizes and how they are aspected. Planets here can show the types of events you will be involved in during the year and how you will be limited or aided according to the nature of the planet. If a planet is in the first house in the SOLAR RETURN and is not conjunct THE asc YOU WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE ENERGIES OF THE PLANET..THAT IS THINGS THE PLANET SYMBOLIZES WILL COME to you AND EFFECT YOU. If the planet is CONJUNCT to the ASC, YOU WILL CAUSE THE ACTIONS the planet symbolizes. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL SECOND HOUSE The most important matters of the year will center on your income and finances, and your personal beliefs. If the overall SOLAR RETURN is benefic it can indicate an important business of financial accomplishment. If it is malefic in general, it will bring financial worries or problems. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL THIRD HOUSE - The major concern of the year or the major event of the year will involve the person's brother or sister, travel, mental work, studies, civil matters, speaking, teaching, communication, or writing. There will be many visits and short trips. World matters will concern those close at hand. If the SOLAR RETURN is highly active and love is shown, then this superimposition refers to an important relationship since the third house is the "house of lovers". THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL FOURTH HOUSE - This frequently 9

3.

4.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

is a sign that there will be a change of residence during the year, or that you will complete some continuing project, or some important enterprise will end, or an important event involving the parents will occur, or an important event will involve the home or real estate, the individual's background, or early years. This placement makes the individual desire material and moral stability and will cause him/her to be concerned about his/her future security. Those who do not have their own home may establish one. If the fourth house is afflicted, this is a poor configuration in general. However, if good aspects form to this house and planets in it, it can prove to be a very beneficial year. At times this signifies the year of death of the individual, but OTHER FACTORS would have to bear this out. It is very hard to accurately forecast one' death. 5. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL FIFTH HOUSE - The major event of the year will involve children, love, romance, teaching, gambling, speculation, pleasure, creativity, entertainment, or the theater. It generally brings developments in your intimate and close relationships...if none, then one may be around the corner. Sometimes it brings an engagement, birth of children, or interest in speculation. If this house is afflicted it can bring stock market or gambling losses. In this case the fifth house would have to be connected to either the second or eighth house...as ruler of the fifth in the SOLAR in the SOLAR SECOND HOUSE, or ruler of the SECOND SOLAR in the FIFTH SOLAR, and if the planets in the total return emphasize finances. This is excellent for artists, those in creative fields or entertainment. It usually brings better relationships, more pleasure, and entertainment. If Uranus is in the fifth there can be a danger of miscarriage. You would also have to examine the sixth, eighth, and twelfth houses and the afflictions to the luminaries (Sun and Moon), and the ruler of the Ascendant. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL SIXTH HOUSE - This is poor for health and usually brings domestic problems. If the rest of the return is good, there will be no more than the usual flues and colds, but there is generally a weakening of the organism, lack of energy, and frequent exhaustion. The work environment or those in it may cause illness. If the solar sixth and tenth are unfavorably linked, it will bring 10

6.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

professional problems involving duties and obligations which are servile or demeaning and distasteful, joyless, tedious, tiresome and unexciting. Don't expect bad health problems if there is no indication in the natal chart. 7. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL SEVENTH HOUSE - If indications of the house cusp (sign), planets and aspects are favorable, this can bring marriage or partnership of many kinds. If afflicted, it brings a trial or difficulties caused by the spouse or partner. It can also show a lack of a successful social life. If the SOLAR ASC opposes (in opposition of 1 orb) the natal ASC, it can bring problems with health, accidents, or operations. This configuration is often seen in years of divorce or separation. For politicians this placement increases public activity. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL EIGHTH HOUSE - This is often seen in years which bring a death, either in the family or circle of friends or associates. If the SOLAR RETURN is afflicted and transits and progressions show danger of death, the individual can be threatened. Otherwise it brings a condition of general weakness, - a decrease or little will power, indifferent compliance to work and duty, worries over health or death during or as a result of illness or accident. It brings depression, aging, eroding of strength. If the person is ill at the time of the return, there may be risks from medical care and treatments, wrongly prescribed medicine which can be dangerous to the person. If in the return the ruler of the eighth or the ASC is in the sixth...or if the two planets ruling these houses (first and eighth) are in poor aspect, you should change doctors. If the eighth is benefic it shows financial gains as from wills, stocks, estates, annuities, dividends, inheritance, the spouse, and unexpected wealth. Spiritually, this superimposition leans one to consider the afterlife. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL NINTH HOUSE - The major event of the year will involve a trip, usually some distance away. The planets in the two houses and especially in the ninth house will show if this trip will occur. This is good for studies as it broadens the outlook and improves intellectual growth. If the ninth is afflicted, it can bring fanaticism or misconceptions regarding philosophy or religion. If benefic, it favors judges, lawyers, religious 11

8.

9.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

people, teaching in universities, study in higher institutions, foreign and overseas matters. If afflicted it can bring troubles associated with these people. 10. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL TENTH HOUSE - The most important event will involve career or public standing. Benefic brings changes in career, opportunities, long awaited success, but you must DO SOMETHING TO ACHIEVE IT, and the overall nature of the SOLAR RETURN in general must support this. If it also happens that the annual MC falls on the cusp of the natal seventh any change in social position good or poor will bring a change in those you associate with. This configuration is often seen in years of marriage, divorce, or partnership. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL ELEVENTH HOUSE - Friends will be the major focus of the year and fulfilling your hopes and wishes. If benefic, new friends, help from friends, plans which succeed because of friends, or fulfilling hopes and wishes which are beyond your control will occur. If afflicted, there may be problems and foul play from friends...sometimes severing of friendships. If the annual ASC is in the eleventh but conjunct the twelfth house cusp (7 orb) then you will encounter disloyal friends who are really secret enemies. THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL TWELFTH HOUSE - This brings a year of ordeal, chronic illnesses emerge or become worse. Brings trouble from secret enemies, people doing things behind your back, gossip. Lawsuits are common with this placement. There is possibility of arrest, false accusations, psychological collapse, worry, anxiety. Check if malefic or benefic.

THE SIGN OF THE ANNUAL ASC AS IT SHOWS THE NATURE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT.
FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS 12

The SIGN of the ASC in the SOLAR RETURN will show the nature of the most important event of the year, so we will examine it next since we have just examined where the ASC falls. This will give a clearer picture of the nature of the annual event. 1. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN ARIES - This makes you feel more independent, reckless, impetuous, hasty, daring, etc. This often is seen in years when one sets out on their own or becomes released from some form of servitude as getting out of prison, debt, etc.. It shows the beginning of a new life or the desire if the return is unfavorable. The return will show the promise of change that marks the start of a new cycle. Your energy will increase and conditions often come which help you escape your former condition and social or intellectual status. If the first is instead intercepted by Aries it shows that the native wants a change, new beginnings, but often does not have to power to do so. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN TAURUS - The most important event of the year can center on the money you earn and your personal beliefs. This increases sensuality and you may be morally loose. Money can bring a change in relationships. Finances are often connected with feelings as financial calculations in love plans. You may gain weight more easily; have strong desire for possessions, materialism or materialism may be the major concern. You may want material things more. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN GEMINI - The year is involved with relatives, especially brothers, sisters, and neighbors. You have to depend more on others this year instead of having free will. The coming and going of people you feel close to will occur. You may travel to be with relatives. You are more receptive and reunions generally away from the home or new acquaintances are possible and will play an important part in your life this year. If benefic, good for studies, speaking, teaching, writing, etc. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN CANCER Matters revolve around the family, domestic affairs, parents, your past, and/or real estate. Good for politics and public life if the Moon is not too afflicted. You are more reserved and secret 13

about what concerns you most. This makes you more emotional and if the Moon is even slightly afflicted you will be emotion and moody, having regrets and nostalgic reverie; pointless remorse or neurosis about getting old. May make plans regarding later years. 5. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN LEO - The affections dominate the year, give an optimistic attitude, good vitality, and love of life. You will probably be able to fully express your personality. Brings personal success in natal house with Leo on the cusp or in the annual house where the Sun is. If the Sun is afflicted or poorly placed, it can bring insincerity from those close to you and a kind of modesty or pride which inhibits you from being with others. This in turn will result in a certain solitude. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN VIRGO - There is little freedom of choice this year and the year is generally one which is more serving. Brings conflicts of interest, especially in the work environment, with co-workers, employees, employers. Brings servitude, menial tasks, added responsibilities, boring detail, and a position subordinate to others. Success demands being diplomatic and cunning. Everyday work dominates practical matters, insuring comfort, well being, maintaining the status quo, and usual habits of living. Infectious or viral diseases are common especially with unfavorable aspects. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN LIBRA Brings reconciliations and/or partnerships with people outside the family. Strangers may bring more happiness than the family because this is a position of worldly and social life. Often seen in years of marriage and all kinds of unions. Close friends important. Increased associates and clientele, memberships and invitations. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN SCORPIO Brings all kinds of problems. A year of unyielding effort and struggle - often with doubtful results. Brings conflicts, lawsuits, and legal complications in one way or another, sometimes against your will. The rest of the year must be very favorable to prevent this ASC from bringing a difficult year with some kind of disintegration, or at least a death among your associates.

THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN SAGITTARIUS - Brings expansion of the personality, interests, and inclinations, new ideas and projects or expansion of business affairs which make you more free and independent. A sure sign of long trips. Brings luck and optimism. The more the last SOLAR RETURN was difficult, the more this one will be good, if Jupiter is not heavily afflicted in the SOLAR RETURN. Good for overseas matters, matters at a distance, in-laws, religion, philosophy, higher education, publishing and theology. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN CAPRICORN Career and social position comes to the foreground this year. If Saturn is even slightly afflicted, worries over business are unavoidable. This position increases ambition and perseverance. You are more reserved, prone to depression, inhibition and tend to be more conservative. You may age more, tend to the straight and narrow. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN AQUARIUS Your social life is emphasized, friendships, and fulfilling of your own hopes and wishes. Relationships may be profitable especially those involving friends. If Uranus is poorly aspected it can bring rapid and unexpected reversals of friendship. You will tend to live more in the future this year, considering long term goals. Friends may help or hinder your doing so. Brings involvement with groups or you may join groups. Good for Astrology unless Uranus is afflicted. THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT IN PISCES Brings wavering decisions, a tendency to be discouraged, or a kind of fatalism which prevents you from seeing clearly and making long range plans. Confusing is common. Circumstances are stronger than your will to overcome them, yet you feel opportunistic. Very rarely does this show a good year, yet there is a kind of passive good luck which keeps the very worst from happening. If Jupiter is well placed and aspected it will make difficulties work out by themselves in the future.

THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL HOUSES


FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS 15

Allowing a 5 orb, if the annual MC falls near the end of a natal house, you must consider that both houses are effected and interpret accordingly. The annual MC is the second MOST IMPORTANT factor to consider in the SOLAR RETURN as an indicator of the tenurial tone of the year in question. 1. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL FIRST HOUSE - This is generally favorable, giving the you more freedom in directing your life as you desire. Doing so will help you in the future. This superimposition is often seen in years when the person "chooses a profession" or begins an important project that turns your life in a new direction. Much opportunity is shown by this placement. With the MC in the first good fortune can bring help, money, and patronage to you. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL SECOND HOUSE This shows a year in which you will be well paid or poorly paid depending on the planets in the SOLAR and natal houses and aspects to those planets. Finances will be very important during the year and any indications shown in the SOLAR interpretation regarding money should be well considered in depth. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL THIRD HOUSE - Social life will require a great deal of travel usually of a short distance to medium distance. Business or profession in turn may require the same kind of travel. If the overall SOLAR RETURN is benefic, your social position can improve because of a short business trip or by receiving an important proposal in a letter. In charts where the person is not working, this placement usually means that their circumstances depend on their associates, brothers, sisters, or neighbors. The person's social position may be connected with writing, speaking, teaching, or other forms of communication. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL FOURTH HOUSE Questions concerning real estate, land, parents, or the home will occur this year. It often shows the end of a project you have been involved in for a long time. This is frequently seen in the year the person retires. If this house is afflicted by malefic planets or malefic aspects to planets in the SOLAR Fourth or Tenth house or to the SOLAR rules of the Fourth and Tenth, it threatens a loss of professional 16

3.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

or social position. This will be especially true when the natal MC and the SOLAR MC are in opposition within 8 or 9. 5. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL FIFTH HOUSE This superimposition is generally a good sign frequently showing that you will be connected with the arts, entertainment, sports, investment, gambling, sports, or some form of creativity. Children may bring the main matter of the year to the fore and frequently bring success or your children are successful during the year. It can indicate an engagement which improves your standing. It can show a year in which the major amount of concern and time are devoted to a child. It sometimes shows a year in which you are caught up in pleasure seeking. For students, it shows the outcome of exams benefic or malefic. If the SOLAR RETURN is afflicted there can be a disintegration of your hopes because of the MC opposing the Natal Eleventh house of hopes and wishes. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL SIXTH HOUSE This shows that you will be in a subordinate or serving position during the year. If the SOLAR RETURN shows illness, this placement shows what repercussions your poor health will have on your career. Study the planets in the SOLAR Tenth house and the natal Sixth house, their aspects, and the rules of these two houses. If Saturn is in the MC (10th house) in the SOLAR RETURN it means you will more or less be a slave to your work during the year. It reduces your freedom of choice and action as well as the achievement of your desires. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL SEVENTH HOUSE If the SOLAR RETURN, Tenth house, and Natal Seventh house are well disposed with benefic planets, aspects, and rules it can show promotion or gain in social position through marriage, partnership, or a business contract. If the SOLAR tenth and Natal seventh are unfavorably disposed it could bring changes brought about by divorce, a dissolution of partnership, or a trial. It can show the changes you will experience good or poor brought about because of changes in your partner's (business or spouse) affairs. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL EIGHTH HOUSE If this house has beneficial planets or is well aspected it can bring financial rewards from partners and sometimes an 17

inheritance, or it can bring gain from favorably settling an account. If this house has malefic planets or unfavorable aspects to planets, or these two house cusps (SOLAR and Natal), it can show the possibility of a death which will effect your business or financial affairs, or it can bring problems with debt or other financial obligations. Debts usually are prominent in some way, whether it is favorable or unfavorable. 9. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL NINTH HOUSE This indicates that your career will require a journey, usually of some distance unless Gemini is involved in either house, then the trips could be short, medium, or long distance. It can also mean that a journey will influence your career. Sometimes this superimposition shows that your business dealings will involve foreign persons or countries or overseas matters.. or that success will come from a distance. For authors it sometimes show their works being translated into foreign languages. It can also show you being placed in diplomatic service. During wars, it can show being arrested in a foreign country. When this happens the annual ASC is usually in the natal Twelfth house with strong planetary afflictions. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL TENTH HOUSE - This is good for your profession, reputation, and good fortune throughout the year. This placement generally shows that the year will be an important one in your life. Although poor planets and aspects will have their effect, this placement is in an overall state of protection for you in matters to do with social standing and profession. THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL ELEVENTH HOUSE This shows that your career is somewhat dependent on your friends, or the connection you have. It is usually a good sign that you will achieve your plans or goals for that year providing you are realistically set. At times, this shows you working more for the future and its gains than for present satisfactions. In this case you sacrifice immediate rewards in order to achieve long range goals.

THE MEANING OF THE SUPERIMPOSITIONS OF THE ANNUAL SOLAR RETURN TO THE NATAL HOUSES.
Houses which contain planets...especially in the SOLAR RETURN are highly significant during the year. Annual superimpositions into natal houses which contain planets are stronger than those that do not have planets in them in the natal chart. When a house in the annual SOLAR RETURN falls in TWO natal houses (5 orb allowed) all three houses involved must be considered, i.e. the SOLAR RETURN and the two natal houses in question. In some cases the annual SOLAR cusp with its 5 orb will fall into two natal houses as above BUT the house where the exact cusp falls is the strongest influence during the year. 1. THE ANNUAL 2ND HOUSE IN THE NATAL FIRST HOUSE What you earn will depend on your own efforts. Your health as shown in the rest of the forecast, how good your decisions are, and how much freedom of choice you have during the year. In an afflicted SOLAR RETURN it shows that you have less freedom of choice because of poor financial circumstances. it can also show that financial matters may require more time and effort than you are willing to give. THE ANNUAL 2ND HOUSE IN THE NATAL SECOND HOUSE This emphasizes the conditions of the NATAL second house good or poor as it is, but brings hopes for positively achieving the good shown in the natal second house. Examine the possibilities for financial gain as shown by the sign on the cusp, and aspects to planets in the houses. THE ANNUAL 2ND HOUSE IN THE NATAL THIRD HOUSE Earnings will be connected with travel, transportation, brothers, sisters, neighbors, writing, teaching, or communication. Money could be connected with a civil case. Earnings can come from mental work. Examine the planets and aspects. THE ANNUAL 2ND HOUSE IN THE NATAL FOURTH HOUSE - This can bring changes in the location where you work or it can bring changes in the conditions where you work as shown by the cusps, planets, and aspects. It can also show the end of a job or some enterprise you have been involved in. The 19

outcome depends on the planets and aspects. Often seen in the years of retirement. It can also show that earnings can depend on land, real estate, crops, or parents. In some cases you may work from your home. 5. THE ANNUAL 2ND HOUSE IN THE NATAL FIFTH HOUSE - Depending on the planets and their aspects good or poor outcome is shown for investment, speculation, or gambling.

The more planets there are in angular houses (1st, 4th, 7th and 10th) the more important the SOLAR RETURN is likely to be this year. 1. The orbs are smaller than in the natal chart: a. b. c. Allow 8 for the Sun and Moon oppositions...APPLYING ASPECTS. conjunctions and

Allow 6 for the other planets...APPLYING ASPECTS..conjunctions and oppositions. A separating aspect generally indicates something that happened before the date of the SOLAR RETURN, so it does not effect the current SOLAR RETURN too much. The closer the aspect the more tangible and evident are its effects.

d. 2.

Interpret aspects formed in the SOLAR RETURN the same way you interpret aspects in the natal chart. Conjunctions are especially strong during the year. You will find that there are usually very few formed; usually only three or less and at times there are none. INTERPRETATIONS OF THE CONJUNCTS 1. SUN CONJUNCT MOON - A very fortunate force. If the same conjunct is in the natal chart, the event this conjunction shows will totally modify your destiny. If you do not have this conjunction natally, it shows an important event during the year. The interpretation of the SIGN is very important here. SUN CONJUNCT MARS - Shows violence or brutality by you or that you will suffer. If at the ASC or MC, you commit the violence. If Mars and the Sun are in poor aspect in the natal or if the SOLAR ASC is in Scorpio, can bring fights or wounds, jealousy, anger, or hate ending in violence. Often seen in years of separation or divorce or suicide attempts. If this conjunction falls in the sixth or twelfth house, may bring surgery. 57

SUN CONJUNCT JUPITER - Increases ambition and sexual interest. If this conjunction is afflicted by Mars (either or both planets in the conjunction) it is poor for health bringing circulatory troubles, abscesses, blood poisoning, phlegm, etc. Brings excesses during the year. If on the ASC, this conjunction brings a false, temporary, euphoria. SUN CONJUNCT SATURN - Brings a year of worry and isolation; maybe a separation from husband, father, or son, and worries over them. It does NOT effect the health unless this conjunction is in the sixth or twelfth house or if the Sun or Saturn rules EITHER the sixth or twelfth. That is, the sixth or twelfth have Leo, Capricorn, or Aquarius on the cusp. It is very restrictive, delays good things and brings unhappiness. It is fortunate only if the NATAL ASC is in Capricorn and if Saturn and the Sun IN THE NATAL do not have one unfavorable aspect. In this case it brings advancement, improvement, beneficial change in plans, and has a long and fortunate influence on your destiny. SUN CONJUNCT URANUS - Brings a sudden, profound reversal in life according to the house it is in. If the annual ASC is in Leo, you cause it. If the Sun and Uranus are in favorable aspect in the NATAL chart and are well aspected in the SOLAR RETURN, it brings an unexpected good opportunity. Otherwise it is a bad conjunction and if the Natal Sun is square or opposite Uranus it makes things worse in the house where this conjunction falls. SUN CONJUNCT NEPTUNE - Brings regression in the house matters where the conjunction falls. General confusion which causes fears or brings hopes which encounter fears, and obstacles. SUN CONJUNCT PLUTO - Can bring success which exceeds all expectations. You tend to be practical and need to expend yourself this year.

Timing Events In The Solar Return


The Major system to time events are as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. A general overview based on the first, seventh, and tenth house clusters of planets. Transits of the Sun to the SOLAR RETURN. The Progressed Ascendant. An experimental approach; the monthly SOLAR returns. The Progressed Moon. fourth,

Of the above, the most valuable seem to be the Sun's transits and the Progressed Ascendant. THE GENERAL OVERVIEW FOR TIMING 1. A cluster of planets around the ASC shows happenings during the first three months of the SOLAR RETURN. (ASC = 6 am, beginning of the day). A cluster of planets around the MC brings events around the middle of the SOLAR year. (MC = Noon or middle of the day). A cluster of planets around the DSC shows happenings in the latter half of the year. (DSC = 6 pm or evening of the day). A cluster of planets around the IC shows happening in the last three months of the year. (Midnight or end of the day).

Transits of The Sun To The Solar Return


1. To find the place of the SUN transiting the SOLAR RETURN all you have to do is open the ephemeris, note its degree, sign, minute, and place it at the correct position in the SOLAR RETURN by degree, sign, and minute EXACTLY as you do with transits to the natal chart. I would advise that you stick with transits of the Sun only...the Sun symbolizes the SELF. That is why it has validity. It is the self moving around the different experiences and events of the SOLAR RETURN during the year. NOTE: The last month of the SOLAR RETURN may fizzle out as it were. That is the month before your birthday. It seems that the next year's SOLAR RETURN has already begun it's effects somewhat. The CYCLICAL APPROACH to the Sun's transits: A. The Sun ticks off any planet, cusp, or other point in the Solar Return chart when it transits them. Therefore, it is valuable to use in timing events. B. When the Sun is conjunct any point it begins the action shown by the planet it conjoins, the house it is in, the sign, and any aspect connecting that planet or point in the chart. THE SUN CONJUNCT TO BEGINS THE ACTION. C. When the Sun squares that same point it is a time of ambition and struggle to achieve what is symbolized in the original conjunct. THE SUN SQUARE SHOWS A PERIOD OF ACTIVITY AND AMBITION OR STRUGGLE. D. When the Sun trines the original conjunct it is a time of ease but should be used to further your goals or things could fall apart at the opposition. THE SUN TRINE SHOULD BE USED TO CONSOLIDATE AND BETTER EVENTS. E. When the Sun is quincunx (inconjunct) the original conjunct, there are relationship problems and work related problems. THE SUN QUINCUNX IS A TIME OF TESTING WORK ABILITY AND RELATION POTENTIAL. FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS 64

2.

F. When the Sun is opposite the original conjunct point, the matter will be discarded if it is not showing promise. If that happens you will start off again as though you were in the conjunct. It will either be a new venture related to the original conjunct, or a different affair altogether. In this care you will repeat the original actions shown in "b" thru "f" above. If the matter is working you will go on to the following returning aspects. THE SUN OPPOSITION EITHER ENDS AN ACTIVITY OR STARTS YOU ON THE RETURNING ASPECTS BELOW. G. The returning quincunx again tests you in relationships and work problems but on a more defined level. THE RETURNING QUINCUNX TESTS RELATIONSHIP ON A MORE DEFINED LEVEL. H. The returning trine usually begins to bring in definite results if you have done well. THE RETURNING TRINE BRINGS RESULTS. I. The returning square is a final struggle and ambition to firmly establish what you set out to achieve. THE RETURNING SQUARE, A FINAL TEST OF AMBITION AND STRUGGLE. J. The returning sextile involves fulfilling your hops and emotional or financial returns based on how well you have done. THE RETURNING SEXTILE, FINANCIAL AND EMOTIONAL HARVEST OR LOSS. K. The returning conjunct, completion of affairs or discarding them. THE RETURNING TO THE CONJUNCT, A LAST HURRAH AND DISCARDING OR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SOMETHING PERMANENT. If you insist on using transits of other planets they may not be as good for timing but use only Mercury, Venus and Mars. DO NOT USE THE OUTER PLANETS. There is one exception. If Mars or Jupiter become Retrograde after your birthday, their transits over their own positions in the Solar Return can release important events as shown by the planets involved with FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS 65

MEANING OF THE SUN'S TRANSITS THROUGH THE HOUSES IN THE SOLAR RETURN a. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR FIRST HOUSE: Brings personal problems, attention to the matters shown by sign, planets, and aspects in the first house. Can effect your health. The Sun squaring or conjunct the Solar ASC sometimes indicates death, but this occurs twice in every SOLAR RETURN every year, so consider accordingly. The same is true when the Sun transits your Natal Chart, but if you're reading this, it hasn't happened yet, has it? How old did you say you were? And it's happened twice a year all of these years! THE SUN TRANSITING THE Brings financial worries; revenues and matters shown aspects of the SOLAR second SOLAR SECOND HOUSE: worries over income, by sign, planets and house.

THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR THIRD HOUSE: Attention centers on relations nearby, applications, paper work, short travel and/or studies, as indicated by the sign, planets and aspects in the SOLAR third house. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR FOURTH HOUSE: Family matters take center stage; residence, real estate considerations, property, and/or parents, as shown by sign, planets, and aspects to the SOLAR fourth house. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR FIFTH HOUSE: Love and affections dominate as well as pleasure, children, and creativity as shown by the SOLAR fifth house. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR SIXTH HOUSE: Focus is on everyday work, and health as indicated by the SOLAR sixth house of the SOLAR RETURN. See Solar seventh for health matters.

If the ASC of the SOLAR RETURN is in Leo or Aries OR if the Sun is in the sixth or twelfth, this opposition shows serious illness or pain. h. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR EIGHTH HOUSE: This brings low vitality and low optimism in matters as shown in the SOLAR eighth. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR NINTH HOUSE: Brings much intellectual activity, trips, matters involving law, etc. as shown in the SOLAR eighth. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR TENTH HOUSE: Puts you into action as though Mars were transiting the MC. Gives courage and energy; can bring an important business or professional happening as shown by the SOLAR tenth house. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR ELEVENTH HOUSE: Much activity for plans, long range intentions regarding what the whole SOLAR RETURN shows for the year and what the Natal eleventh shows; and what the SOLAR eleventh house shows. THE SUN TRANSITING THE SOLAR TWELFTH HOUSE: Brings a dull existence, low vitality, and increased worries over what Natal twelfth and SOLAR twelfth show.

THE TIMING OF EVENTS BY THE PROGRESSED ASCENDANT


1. The ASC makes a complete circle of the SOLAR RETURN in one year. This is based on the concept that the SOLAR RETURN acts like a progressed chart, a day is a year. To figure the movement of the ASC you add 59' 10.7" for each day. You add this figure to the ASC in the SOLAR RETURN. This is roughly a movement of one degree per day. This figure comes from dividing the 360 of the chart by 365 days to get 59' 10.7" movement per day. This will not be exact, but will work pretty good. ASC of long ascension stay longer in a the signs Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and 68

2.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

Sagittarius. The number will be too large, and ASC of short ascension (Capricorn to Gemini) the daily movement will be too small. This will only effect you if you want a prediction to the hour which is ludicrous in most instances. 3. The movement of the progressed ASC around the SOLAR chart explains why illness can occur during the month before and after your birthday. The progressed ASC is in the SOLAR twelfth at that time, and will oppose the sixth house cusp some time during that month. If the sign and degree of the progressed ASC falls in the NATAL 1st, 6th, 8th, or 12th, you can predict poor health during that month for sure. You also have TRANSITING SUN quincunx Sun at that time. The quincunx is poor for health also. Often the progressed SOLAR ASC crossing over the SOLAR MC or Moon brings the birth of a child if one is pregnant during the year. Of course, you have to be pregnant to begin with. When the progressed SOLAR ASC contacts any point, or planet, it activates that house and all aspects to planets or points it contacts.

3.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

4.

You will divide that movement into twelve parts for month, 52 for weeks, 365 for days and add successively to the position of the Moon in the current (earlier) SOLAR RETURN. Here is how you do that.

CALCULATING THE PROGRESSED MOON BY MONTHS 1. Find the position of the Moon in the annual SOLAR RETURN, and the position of the Moon in the following/succeeding SOLAR RETURN. Subtract this year's position from next year's position: Position of this year's SOLAR RETURN = 28 Virgo 35' (1936 return) Position of next years SOLAR RETURN = (1937 return) 6 Aquarius 29'

NOTE: THE SIGN ARIES is 0, Taurus is 30, Gemini is 60, etc. Convert signs to degrees and combine totals to get only degrees and minutes...then you can subtract the smaller from the larger figure. 28 Virgo 35', Virgo = 30 X 5 (signs) = 150, add 150 to the 28 of Virgo's placement in the 1936 return. This gives 28 + 150 = 178 35'. So we see that 28 Virgo 35' is the same as 178 35'. Do the 1937 return position. 6 Aquarius 29' + 30 x 10 (signs) = 300; 300 + 6 = 306, and 306 + 29' = 6 Aquarius 29'. Subtract the smaller figure from the larger figure you got in the calculations above: 305 306 29' 89' = 6 Aquarius 29' (1937 Solar position, Moon) 71

(1936 Solar position,

So the diurnal (daily) movement of the Moon for one year is 127 54'l. It will always be between 120 and 140 as stated earlier. 2. Find the number of degrees the Moon moves in ONE MONTH (diurnal motion) during the year.

NOTE: It can also be found for any amount of time as a week, a day, etc. We will do it for a month as is customary. But here is what the math would look like for all the time periods above. For a month, you divide the annual movement above (127 54') by 12, for a week divide by 52, for a day divide by 365, as shown below. TIME DIVISION movement = Annual Movement/ time division = total

MONTH (1/12th year) = 127 54' / 12 = total monthly movement per mo. WEEK (1/52nd year) movement per week. DAY (1/365th year) movement per day. = 127 54' / 52 = total weekly = 127 54' / 365= total daily

Finding the number of degrees the month moves in a month. There are many ways to get the same answer. If you have trouble with math and have a calculator, you might try to convert the degrees to minutes, combine the answer with the minutes in your diurnal motion, and divide by 12, then convert back to degrees by dividing by 60. Here is how you would do it: Multiply the total degrees in the diurnal movement by 60 (minutes) to get the total minutes the degrees are equal to. FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS 72

The diurnal movement was 127

54'

Multiply 127 x 60 = 7620 minutes Add the minutes of the diurnal movement 54' to 7620 = 7674 minutes total. Therefore 127 54' = 7674

Divide by 12 months, 7674'/12 = 639.33 or 639 minutes per month. Convert the 639' to degrees/minutes: Note: 60' = 1 639/60 (min) = 10 remainder 39' or 10 39' movement per month. 3. Add this 10 39' to the Moons position in the annual SOLAR RETURN in question. Do so 12 times for the twelve months, each time adding it to the last answer you got. There may be a 3' error at the end of the calculations, which is not bad.

HAPPY SOLAR RETURN AGAIN!

NOTE: There are only 364 days in the calculations because your birth date, the day the SOLAR RETURN is cast for, is not counted. The first day given in this chart is the first day after your birthday. Do not count your birth date when figuring how many days past it an occurrence will happen. The sign, degree, minute, for the are given in FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS 81

your SOLAR RETURN. Example: From May 7th to May 15th is 8 days but that does not include May 7th. Do it on your fingers; May 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15...eight days. You subtract in the normal way, 15 - 7 = 8, but if you are using a calendar do not start counting on May 7th. You will be wrong by one day.
