Where Should We Domificate TheSolar Return?
ByCiro Discepolo, Italy
What is the place for where the SolarReturn is cast? The place of birth or theplace where the native actually is on thevery moment of the Solar Return?I find that this question is strongly idleand rhetorical; but since somebody raisedthe issue, I’ll try to give a well-structuredanswer, supported by astrologicalevidences. Since Astrology exists, it hasalways put in connection a time and aplace in which something was born.There’s a very old saying: every risingthing may be born under a good or a badstar. The horoscope, i.e. the map of thenatal sky, is the snapshot of the sky as it ison the moment of the birth - a photo takenin the place where the happy event istaking place.Somebody might object that the snapshotshould be taken in the place of conception;
but it would be mistaken, because the astrology that all of us practice is the astrology built upon the relationship birth/sky. Still, anybody could start learning today a new astrology, anastrology that grasps the terrestrial and celestial links of the moment of conception,supposing that the moment of conception can be determined precisely.So let us stick to the ultra-millenary astrology that we have been using for all our life. Thisastrology theorizes that the celestial
that we receive on the moment of our birthfixes our person like a picture on a photograph plate, whose crystals of silver would be“responsible of”, or the would be “in connection with”, all our life.Those who do not believe in this, do not believe in astrology. Now, we know that there aremany cycles working in astrology. Great masters have used and are still using them; such asAndré Barbault (who applies them especially in
World Astrology
), Reinhold Ebertin, JohnAddey and many others. Your birthday is the start of a new cycle of life that is going to lastfor one year. There is no reason why this cycle - an extremely important cycle for your life -should be domificated for the place where you used to be thirty years ago, but where todayyou aren’t any longer. Some wonder: why should the Sun pass exactly over the Sun of birth?Well, the Sun of birth was in the sky, not on the Earth! And if you wish to recreate the sameterrestrial-celestial situation of the birth, you should domificate exactly like at your birth-time, and all the Solar Returns would be the same!That’s why, dear Reader, I tell you that you domificate for the place where you are spendingyour birthday, and not for your birthplace. In order to induce you to a meditated reflectionthat confirms this matter of fact, firs of all I have told you my personal opinion; secondarilyI’ll let you know what great astrologers think about that; and thirdly, I’ll show you somepractical cases, quite striking ones. Eventually, those who still doubt are invited to read theexample of Mata Hari, that I’ve written in the book
I transiti
, published by Armenia Editore.It is an exceptionally clear example that cannot leave the least doubt in the Readers’ mind. Iaccept any challenge. If anybody shows me the contrary of what I write there, I’ll changemy mind on the Solar Returns.Nonetheless in this case somebody else should be able to explain to me how come all theAimed Solar Returns that I have studied and practiced over thousands of people have alwaysworked.What the great astrologers think on this subject:Tommaso Palamidessi, in his book
 Astrologia Mondiale
does not express clearly, but when heputs two Solar Returns as an example, he uses that of Benito Mussolini and that of AldoMoro - both domificated for the place where they spent their respective birthday.H. J. Gouchon, a great astrologer of the last century, in his
Dictionnaire Astrologique
, ed.Dervy-Livres, at page 535 writes so: “... It mums be noticed yet (for the beginners) that theposition of the planets
always remains the same
in any part of the world where the native maybe; only domification
may change
. Often certain people move on the day of their birthday inorder to attain a better position of the Houses.”André Barbault, in his
Practical treatise of astrology
, ed. Morin, 1967, gives his opinion: “Whatis a Solar Return? It is simply the classical astral chart, cast for a certain year and for the
place in which the native is on the day of his/her astronomical birthday, that is today, on themoment of the return of the Sun on its natal position.”.Still Barbault in his book
L’astrologia e la previsione dell’avvenire
, Armenia editore: Traditionis not formal concerning the place for where the chart itself must be cast: the place of birthor the place of the anniversary. Modern astrologers have unanimously adopted the latterversion.”And above all Alexandre Volguine, the “father” of the Solar Returns, in his book
LaTechnique des Révolutions Solaires
, Dervy-Livres, new edition of June 1972, page 22: “Beforestarting the exposition of the technique of interpretation of Solar Returns, the subject of thefollowing chapter, we must call the astrologers’ attention to the necessity of casting theyearly charts
not for the place of birth, but for the place in which the subject is at themoment of his/her anniversary
.Let us examine now some practical cases that prove - to those who don’t stick to their
mala fide
- that the SR must be cast for the place of the birthday and not for the place of the birth.
Case # 1.
The case of 
Greta Garbo
. The great Swedish actress spent the last times of her liferetired in a flat in New York, where she died on the 15th of April 1990. You can see her birthchart further on.You can also see the two Solar Returns: one cast for her place of birth, the other one cast forthe place where Greta Garbo spent her last birthday (1989, New York).As you can see, the SR of Stockholm, taken for the year in which the over-eighty years olddiva died, has got a nasty conjunction in the first House of the Return, but it also shows anAscendant lying in the 5th House radix - nothing to do with a death! I would like to remindmy Readers what they can find in several other parts of this book: the position of theAscendant of SR compared with the natal Houses is by far the most important piece of information that you can receive; you might as well stop here, and use it to write the nine-column head on the first page of the “newspaper” of that year of the native.On the contrary, the SR of Greta Garbo for the year 1989, cast for New York, shows anAscendant in the 12th House, which points to another important way of my reading theSolar returns:
the Ascendant of SR lying in the twelfth house of the natal chart is the worst thingthat may happen to a native
