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.

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).

2.

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

something; FIXED - generally does little
and gets stubborn over the matter; MUTABLE
- adapts to the situation at hand.

NEGATIVE - Is passive.

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

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.

c.

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.

d.

SOLAR RETURNS frequently fall on the day before or


after your actual birth DATE because of leap year.

e.

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.

f.

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

be willing to travel a distance.

STEPS IN INTERPRETING THE SOLAR RETURN.


procedure and importance).
a.
b.

(In order of

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.

d.

Consider the annual MC the same way as you did the


annual ASC.

e.

Consider the annual SOLAR house superimpositions in


the same way.

f.

Pay special attention to HOUSES and their matters in


all interpretations..especially houses with a group of

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

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.

h.

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.

i.

Consider all aspects to these other planets.

j.

1)

Aspects between planets in the SOLAR RETURN are


the MOST IMPORTANT and show the strongest
influences for the year. Rely on them.

2)

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

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

c.
d.

f.
g.

h.

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.

INTERPRETING THE ANNUAL SUPERIMPOSITIONS OF


THE SOLAR RETURN ONTO THE NATAL HOUSES
THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT
1.

This is the single most important factor to consider in the


chart of the SOLAR RETURN.

2.

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.

3.

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.

2.

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.

3.

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".

4.

THE ANNUAL ASC IN THE NATAL FOURTH HOUSE - This frequently


is a sign that there will be a change of residence during

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

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.

6.

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
professional problems involving duties and obligations

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

10

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.

8.

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.

9.

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
people,
teaching
in
universities,
study
in
higher

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

11

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.

11.

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.

12.

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.
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
FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

12

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.

2.

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.

3.

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.

4.

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
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.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

13

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.

6.

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.

7.

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.

8.

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.

9.

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.

10.

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.

11.

12.

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


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.

2.

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.

3.

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.

4.

THE ANNUAL MC IN THE NATAL FOURTH HOUSE Questions


concerning real estate, land, parents, or the home will

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

16

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
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.

6.

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

c.

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.

d.

The closer the aspect the more tangible and evident


are its effects.

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.

3.

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.

2.

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.

4.

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.

5.

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.

6.

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.

all expectations.
You tend to be practical and need
to expend yourself this year.

In poor aspect brings conflict between
feelings and interests. NOTE: If in the SOLAR RETURN
these two planets oppose each other on the ASC-DSC, it
brings a conflict between desire and the necessities
of daily life.
If they oppose each other on the MCIC, it brings clashes between professional obligation
and family life.
MOON CONJUNCT VENUS - Lucky.
Makes you lascivious,
sexual, indulgent.
Brings pregnancy and birth.
Effects personal life, not professional life.

10.

MOON CONJUNCT MARS - Brings excesses and recklessness

11.

MOON CONJUNCT JUPITER - Brings good fortune, monetary


gain, gifts, and material benefits. Helpful to those
house matters.

12.

MOON CONJUNCT SATURN - This brings trouble from women,

MOON CONJUNCT URANUS - This brings unforseen happening


by house and sign placement which changes your whole
existence.
Often seen in years of accidents or
operations. Brings trips with an element of surprise.

helpless, more dependent on others.
Circumstances
diminish opportunity, will power, morality.

the SOLAR RETURN, brings a new element in the love
life, and also brings trips by water.

MOON CONJUNCT PLUTO - Trips are good.


Brings new
acquaintances.
Also brings a sudden development in
the house where the conjunction falls.

careless and you cause problems even when the planets
are well aspected. The house position shows where you
are like this.
If in the sixth brings cuts, burns,
wounds of the arms, hands and chest.
If very
afflicted can cause surgery. NOTE: The opposition of
Mercury and Mars brings conflicts, differences of
opinion, lawsuits, and debates as shown by house
position or rulership of that house.
MERCURY CONJUNCT JUPITER - Benefits professional
skills. Good for business.
Brings good judgment,
tolerance, practical sense, improved relations, even
an increase in earnings and good solutions to

27.

VENUS CONJUNCT NEPTUNE - Depends on the aspect between


Venus and Neptune in the NATAL chart. If the NATAL is
sextile or trine, this brings luck, success and
inspiration in that house. If the NATAL is square or
opposition, brings betrayal, fraud, disintegration of
love life, nervous depression which may border on
insanity, psychological or physical collapse.

28.

VENUS CONJUNCT PLUTO - Brings an unusual love; an


intense emotional life. Increases your charm bringing
success. You may experience a flattering union which

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.

2.

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

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
either Mars or Jupiter and the aspects they form.

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

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

matters of the SOLAR seventh house.


NOTE:
If
the Sun opposes the ASC it can cause an illness.
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.

activity,

involving law, etc. as shown in the SOLAR eighth.

j.

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.

k.

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.

l.

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.

2.

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

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

68

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.

4.

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.

5.

When the progressed SOLAR ASC contacts any point, or


planet, it activates that house and all aspects to
planets or points it contacts.

so I would pick that one.

d.

Add 223 days to your birth date and the event

will occur on that day.


If the person were born on Jan. 1, you would add
223 days and come up with August 12 if it is not
leap year.
You would come up with Aug 13 if it
is leap year.

7.

FIND WHERE THE PROGRESSED ASC IS TODAY (OR ANY DAY


AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY).
a.

Count how many days it is since your birthday.


Example, I am born on Jan 1 and it is Aug 12, not
leap year, so 223 days have passed since my
birthday.

b.

TIMING EVENTS BY THE PROGRESSED MOON


1.

You need two SUCCESSIVE SOLAR RETURNS


calculations for this type of timing.

2.

If you round off your calculations, the results will


not be accurate to the degree over the whole year as
you will see, but they can be used for timing events
pretty well.

3.

The movement of the progressed Moon during one year


will be between 120 to 140.

FORECASTING SOLAR RETURNS

to

do

the

70

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 89'
306 29'
=

Moon)

178 35'

28 Virgo

(1936 Solar position,

127 54'
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.

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.
