Zodiac Signs on the Ascendant and MC, and the Ascendant Ruler


The zodiac signs on the Ascendant and MC, and the house position of the Ascendant ruler at the time of the solar return are described below. Your social and career opportunities for the coming year are influenced by these signs and house placement.



Solar Return Ascendant Libra :





    You  will  require  peace  and  harmony  away  from  the  maddening  crowds  this  year.  You  will  have  a  flair  for  artistic  and  creative  projects  and  can  talk  up  a  storm.  Indecisions  will  fluctuate  from  "yes"  to  "no"  to  "I  don't  know",  and  all  within  the  same  breath,  the  more  time  you  spend  thinking  about  the  best  course  to  take  in  any  situation.  Legal  careers  are  a  nice  compliment  to  your  temperament,  with  the  ability  to  see  both  sides  of  a  situation  while  remaining  unbiased.  Libra  on  the  Ascendant  is  an  excellent  indicator  of  marriage,  but  not  the  only  one  to  be  considered.


    Since  you    have  wonderful  sense  of  colors,  decorating,  painting,  drawing  or  any  field  that  allows  you  to  match  patterns  with  surroundings  would  be  good  for  you  to  experiment  in.  Diplomacy  is  a  natural  state  of  mind  as  well,  and  you  are  endowed  with  good  reasoning  abilities  and  more  tolerant  natures  than  most  other  persons.


    Abundant  energy,  success-oriented  and  putting  your  best  foot  forward  for  the  world  to  see  are  important  for  you  this  year.  You  become  more  charming  and  polite,  but  may  come  across  as  insincere.  There  will  be  much  more  of  an  interest  in  books,  music,  art  and  photography  (taking  pictures  as  well  as  posing)  as  Libra  is  ruled  by  Venus,  planet  of  sensuality  and  beauty.  It  will  not  be  hard  to  see  from  this  that  physical  attractiveness  will  be  much  more  important  to  you  this  year.  There  is  much  more  of  an  emphasis  on  personal  luxuries,  comforts,  dressing  well  and  cosmetics  and  beauty  aids  (for  the  ladies)  and  retaining  your  youth  in  some  way.  On  the  negative  side,  Librans  can  also  be  somewhat  shy,  rude  or  altogether  antisocial,  with  a  total  disregard  for  appearance.  Health  wise,  there  is  apt  to  be  a  lack  of  energy  and  ailments  that  are  the  direct  result  from  dietary  habits,  sweets  being  the  biggest  culprit.


    Relationships  that  are  not  harmonious  with  a  sense  of  cooperation  and  above  all  becoming  friends  can  really  mess  up  your  internal  wiring.  Approval  and  recognition  from    others  for  work  well  done  is  a  necessity  for  balancing  your  life.  You  are  a  natural  at  giving  of  yourself  and  when  unappreciated  you  wilt  like  a  flower  that  has  been  stepped  on.


    Marriage  is  very  important  to  you,  but  you  must  look  before  you  leap  into  it  because  you  have  the  tendency  to  marry  very  quickly  especially  this  year,  and  suffer  the  consequences  of  your  impatient  quest  until  you  can  bear  it  no  longer.  You  put  your  friendly  and  enchanting  face  forward  in  a  non-aggressive  manner  and  you  would  much  rather  make  peace  with  people  in  an  agreeable  way  which  is  your  approach  to  win  people  over  to  your  side.  Look  to  the  house  where  VENUS  is  located  to  see  where  you  need  to  COOPERATE  and  be  in  HARMONY  with  others  this  year.


            Ascendant is in Libra, Aquarius Decanate


    Ruled by the planet Uranus,  you have a strong intellect and are governed by reason than emotions. Take a project and systematically make it work because that is your strong suit. Kindness and sympathy for people around you are very positive traits, and should be utilized at every opportunity to bring success back to you. Caution carried to extremes promotes inaction, which is a danger as well.


Ruler of Ascendant in 11th house


    With the Solar Ascendant Ruler in the Solar 11th house, social and intellectual security takes on a greater prominence. You will look for acceptance in life with people around you in group and personal situations. The 11th house represents friends, social groups, and societies, and it also represents the affection that you need from others to feel important.


Solar Return MC Cancer:


    Since this is the most "visible" part of the solar chart, it represents how you are actually seen in the world by others. It represents your more outward or public face and where you are likely to encounter success, and your reputation in the world. Your goals  will exhibit very sensitive characteristics, retreating when feeling threatened emotionally. You are psychic and receptive to everything in your environment, and feel things on a deeper level than most other people. Your responses to life situations are emotional rather than intellectual which can have mixed results. Moods change like the incoming and outgoing tide, and just as often. A career that brings you into contact with the masses would be an excellent career choice.


    Cancer on the Midheaven this year needs to be the center of attention, or you can be more famous for some reason this year. Giving lectures, sermons, political aspirations or becoming a public figure is favored. Closer relationships with parents and people in authority is also highlighted for you this year. In career matters, interests related to women, children, housing or food will be more appealing.


    Making extreme changes in your life or going away from your base of operations which you consider safe and secure is detrimental to your well being. You keep a tight grip on people, possessions, memories or sentimental objects. Your home and domestic security is very significant to you and you run on pure "instinct".


    In connection to other people in your environment you are very loyal, protective, supportive, loving, compassionate, softhearted and sympathetic to their needs. People seek you out in a time of crisis because they know you will understand and provide help if at all possible. Perhaps they know you are just a good listener. You will never forget the thoughtful or thoughtless, kind or unkind things that are said and done to you. You may forgive them, but never forget any injustice.


    Mood wise, you drive people crazy with your open methods of communication or your withdrawn nature that keeps in touch through thought waves that others are supposed to understand, and sometimes do.





Zodiac Signs on the Other House Cusps


The zodiac signs on the other house cusps affect your attitude to many areas of your life, and have a significant impact on what kinds of opportunities and challenges will present themselves in the coming year.



Scorpio on 2nd cusp:


     Scorpio on the cusp of the second house points to secretiveness in financial affairs. You will put a lot of effort in managing your personal affairs. You will do this in private ways, no one else in your environment will realize what  you decide financially, whether the outcome is good or bad.

Sagittarius on 3rd cusp:


     With Sagittarius on the cusp of the third house,  you are very talkative, with an ease in expressing a myriad of subjects on a broad scale. Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius confirms your naturally happy, optimistic and outgoing nature, being a friend to everyone. Sagittarius has domain over politics, religion, spirituality, and education, and much of your communication will be primarily in these areas. Friends, family, neighbors and the public will share your interests in some degree. You will have a great interest in learning and expanding your life, growing from the experience. This is travel related energy, so visiting places long distances away, or having family and friends at a great distance is normal here. Organization is your key to success, and you are prepared for all that life has to offer. You also are an excellent judge of character, and first impressions to you are very important. Look to the house where Jupiter is located to see where your interests can be found.


Capricorn on 4th cusp:


     With Capricorn on the fourth house of the home, family, roots, real estate, property and security,  you will take a great deal of responsibility for the care of your home and family.

You are cool and detached in the area of romance, but highly receptive, social and enjoy any and all recreational activities. There are very real concerns for children, but in intellectual ways, rather than emotional. Your children are apt to be very rebellious this year, keeping your hands full.

You won't take injustices very well, and stand up and fight for what you believe in. Conflicts are to be noted with this aggressive energy in the house of marriage and partnerships.

Taurus on 8th cusp:


    The eighth house deals with joint resources. Possessions that are not earned directly by you, but obtained through the relationship, wills, or pensions. It also has to do with money belonging to others such as taxes, corporate money, insurance, and the stock market. The eighth house also relates to the mysteries of life and sex.

Virgo energy on the twelfth house  indicates that you can be quite critical, but are able to keep it under control and hidden. You will take health matters seriously, and will play a major role in your lives. Look to the house where Mercury is located to find that area in which you retire from public view.





The Sun


The placement of the Sun in the solar return chart is very important and affects almost every area of your life!



Sun in 11th house:


    The Solar Sun is now in your 11th house. But what does the  position of the Solar Sun mean to you and how will it affect your life this year? The Sun indicates where the greatest growth will take place during the Solar Year and how it can express itself through creative means, success and recognition in life, or where it can be best identified.


    Work and cooperation with friends and groups of people through charitable endeavors become important. Socializing more than usual is highlighted now and team efforts will work best and you may be asked to or join a group or association. Look at the aspects to the Solar Sun this year to see what you will accomplish.


Sun conjunction Venus:


    An optimistic outlook and a desire to cooperate with others is present. Plan or take part in social activities or put your energies into creative outlets, because this is an excellent time for artistic self expression. Relationships are highlighted, but use caution because overindulgence of any kind are likely in this year. New love interests can touch you very deeply this year. Matters of money can play a very important part of your life at this time.


    Clear perceptions highlight this year so buy some artwork, go take part in the pursuit of fun and good times or bring good feelings and peace to others. Play the lottery or other speculative venture, but remember that Venus represents small wins as compared to Jupiter's large wins. You are the optimist who is happy and cheerful.


Sun opposition Mars:


    Avoid crowds and irritating people this year because tempers will be hotter than normal and impulsive and intense actions as well as some aggressive attitudes will be in evidence.


    You are just looking for a fight this year, but are you prepared to pay the price for your quarrelsome nature. If you are looking for a perfect time to separate from a loved one, this is it, and this will prove to be a difficult year for romance and gambling. You may have an illness or headache that develops this year to contend with. The Solar Return Sun is always hot and when it reaches Mars (ruler of the head and house where it is in the natal chart) it makes it hotter and natural temperatures and tempers rise.


Sun conjunction Jupiter:


    Considerable financial improvements surround you this year. An interest can be taken in the happiness and well being of others this year. If you are looking for the time to ask favors from superiors or those in authority, this year is the time to do so. It is also a favorable time for applying to schools of higher knowledge. Someone can become pregnant this year, or you may hear of  the birth of a child. Be careful, because it is easy to put on weight under this year, since Jupiter just loves to expand the old waist line. This is also a good time to start a vacation where long distances are concerned. Lotteries can bring in a dollar or two this year and because Jupiter rules larger amounts of money, lucky breaks are possible!


    This is a time of popularity, and favors legal matters that may have been pending up until this year with positive results.


Sun sextile Saturn:


    Long lasting commitments and responsibilities are favorable. Buy a new car for endurance and to insure a long lasting investment this year. You may find someone from your past coming back into your life this year as well, or find that relationships that have experienced disagreements or breakups can suddenly begin again on another level.


    Long range goals become important and this year favors the favorable outcome for legal matters. Art forms are likely to have a much more structured appearance. This year favors politics, executives and business. Have faith in yourself to reach your goals. Perhaps this is the year to face the fact that you need to seek the advice or counsel of an attorney to take you out of unpleasant situations, but with great reluctance.


Sun semisquare MC:


    An active time filled with hard work, accomplishments and enlightenment. Ego conflicts with authority and family are likely to occur. Don't let it get out of hand. Responsibilities in your domestic and work environment are likely to increase. Family problems can arise to be dealt with.





The Moon


The placement of the Moon in the solar return chart affects emotions, moods, domestic affairs and relationships with women during the coming year.



Solar Return Moon in 12th house:


    The Solar Moon is now in your 12th house. The Solar Moon rules your emotional needs and the specific houses show where your needs will lie and be met for the next 12 months.  The Moon shows where significant changes will take place during the year, and where relationships are formed.


    Hidden feelings can come bubbling up to the surface this year, even the ones we didn't know we had buried inside. They can come from any area of our lives and take us by surprise. Our feelings can go helter skelter as we change gears in the middle of a viewpoint and head off in the opposite direction, so a little time spent by yourself would be a salvation about now. Depression can come in and visit us for the next 12 months and insecurity about ourselves arise and demand to be noticed. This is a time to bring out in the open what is bothering you and deal with it. If the Solar Moon makes stressful aspects to the 12th house, there can be some emotional hardships for yourself or others in your environment that require hospitalization of some kind.


Moon semisquare Jupiter:


    If there are people who try to restrict you this year, rebellion will be your reply, and a feeling of superiority over others and snobbery will not sit well with others. Confrontations with others of an emotional nature is a strong possibility. If people would just leave you alone, you would be just fine. Your generosity may go unappreciated or taken for granted. Money matters are not supported with this energy, and luck may not come your way in speculative ventures.


Moon square Saturn:


    Consider putting off any large purchases and impulse buying, because prices will be higher than usual. You may experience depression for at some time during this year, so try to be by yourself  if you can. Responsibilities on the job can be very annoying as well. People in your environment will not be very supportive to your causes, instead you may find them cold, unfeeling and unresponsive to your requests for aid. It might be best to try and please yourself instead of others at this time. There can be emotional losses, separations or divorce if stronger aspects support it. Your health will also be on the sensitive side, and you may experience distrust for others, with self confidence non existent.


Moon sesquiquadrate Uranus:


    This is a very restless year where you can get yourself into trouble by rebelling against your environment or experience sudden emotional instability that drives everyone around you crazy. You will be fighting the emotional war that rages within you, choosing to isolate yourself somewhat from society. There can be some added stress in your family life and notice some temporary stomach problems.


    Emotional excitement is sure to be in evidence, but not of the positive kind. Stress and nervous strain  is likely to increase, and blood pressure must be watched as well.


Moon trine Neptune:


    Charitable and spiritual approaches to others will enhance your life this year. This is a wonderful time for developing or using your ESP and you may experience some heavy duty dreams, see some odd weather conditions, be possessed by sexual vibes that are strong, or feel some increased impressions about your environment. You will be very sympathetic and compassionate to your fellow man and your perceptions and inner visions will be on target. Avoid negative people so you can get the full effect of this positive energy.


    Interests in music, painting, fantasies, movies and motion pictures will increase.


Moon sextile Pluto:


    Relations with women are very heavy, deep and wonderful this year and very strong and hidden feelings emerge to be dealt with. Sexuality is enhanced with intense passion. A fortunate time to make some major changes to your lifestyle, and your intuitive insights will be highly spiritual.


Moon conjunction Asc.:


    Upsetting environmental conditions can arise this year and a moody disposition prevails. Taking care of many details can be an effective way to utilize this energy and dealing with women in the daily environment will increase.







The placement of Mercury in the solar return chart affects communication, and your ability to learn and express yourself during the coming year.



Solar Return Mercury in 12th house:


    Mercury is in your 12th house, and indicates areas of interests in your life this year, as well as health matters or where your thoughts are likely to be focused. Because Mercury "is" communication of every form, it shows where transactions, business deals, service to others, writing and communication will be focused.


    Communications DECREASE as you prefer to keep your opinions and thoughts to yourself rather than divulge them to the outside world this year. This is a wonderful time to go off by yourself and meditate or find some peace and quiet that will prove beneficial to you. If Mercury makes stressful aspects while in the 12th house, there can be a tendency to want to escape your reality, daydreaming, or information is received that is false, secret actions that are initiated or about to be and some ill health.


Mercury Sesquiquadrate Neptune:


    Be somewhat skeptical if any offers that arrive this year seem too good to good to be true as confusion, lies and deceptions will be found in communications. Avoid dishonesty at all cost and stay away from dishonest people. You may notice that your nerves can be on edge so make sure you have all the facts before you engage your mouth.


    Avoid any sort of contracts, as the fine print is not to your advantage. Delays in mail are to be expected, so if you are waiting for something, be patient. WATCH YOUR DRIVING to avoid any mishaps.


    Ill health connected with drugs, medications or alcohol is possible, so be careful in their use as you are very susceptible to Negative effects from them, whether they are prescription or not.

Mercury trine Node:


    Communications increase with harmonious results this year. This is also a favorable time for public relations, advertising, short trips and contacts with the general public and it is also a very sociable time for the exchange of ideas. You have a good grasp of any situation at hand and your judgement is sound, so use it for any form of the written or oral word. Joint plans and the exchange of ideas will prosper, and the same goes for any intellectual pursuits, social or business communications.


Mercury sextile MC:


    This is a good time to go looking for real estate, pay bills, or pay attention to all details and balance the checkbook. Your heart and mind will be more in harmony and activities that take place in the home are fortunate. Public relation matters can prosper and domestic and professional matters go well.







The placement of Venus in the solar return chart affects romance and friendship over the coming year.



Solar Return Venus in 11th house:


    Venus is in your 11th house now. Venus is the Goddess of  love and where you might find it and money matters and how you will handle it or what you might spend money on.  Venus shows where you are likely to find compatibility with love or money, or where favors can be found from others.


    Group activities or being with friends is highlighted and loving, affectionate and friendly atmospheres exist. Love for both the new and exciting is possible to develop, or you might be invited to join a group or organization that brings pleasant feelings. Romantic relationships started this year will be more of friends than lovers. On the other hand you may become lovers with an old friend. If Venus makes harsh aspects to the 11th house, you may "use" your friends and contacts for material and sexual advancement.


Venus opposition Mars:


    There is no excusing abuse in relationships in any form and this year can promote just that. Romantic quarrels are apt to be hot and heavy if you let them get out of hand. Problems in social areas and business are likely to arise, so watch those not so nice remarks as they can cut like a knife. Avoid any purchases of extravagant items, as they may have to be returned for one reason or another. Control your emotions and your feelings, don't let them get out of control. Bad news can arrive in financial ventures, and applications for credit, services or products denied.


    Opposing views regarding confidential data causes separations. The battle of the sexes continues in high gear and jealousy can rear its ugly head demanding to be heard. Sexual needs become accented and sexual incompatibility or aggressiveness are also indicated. Selfish attitudes can arise and financial extravagances can leave you broke, so try to tone down spending. Items bought at the store may have to be returned with defects, especially electrical/mechanical. Be precise in all things you do to avoid the mistakes that can easily occur.


Venus sextile Saturn:


    Pending deals can this year be finalized with profits this year and you will be more cautious than usual in your dealings with others. Benefits can come through older people and in your daily routine, use old business standards rather than employing new ones. Progress in financial dealings is an important outcome of this time period.


    New love relationships started will be with someone much younger or older than yourself and you will be more willing to make sacrifices for the sake of others as well and you will take your duties and responsibilities to others very seriously.


    A positive side of  this energy is the ability to purchase items from a standpoint of only what you need and let the luxuries of life wait until another time. Balance the books and budget your funds to keep your life in check. You are able to be more controlled in your affections, putting your emotions on hold.


Venus Quincunx Neptune:


    Be alert to possible deceptive practices in any dealings or romantic encounters this year and be especially careful of what you wish for this year, you just might get it and then you have to deal with it. This is a very vulnerable time for romance or emotions so do not make permanent commitments to others.


    Relationships can easily break up under this influence. Watch out for Con Men, you may not see them coming. Meetings and appointments with women can be cancelled because of an illness and escapism through alcohol and drugs should be avoided, when they are the most adverse to the body. Get rich schemes will not go your way and most likely fail.







The placement of Mars in the solar return chart affects your drive, ambition, and vitality during the coming year.



Solar Return Mars in 5th house:


    Mars is in your 5th house this year. Mars is the planet of intense activity and the house it occupies by placement shows where that activity will take place. Mars is aggressive and can be quite selfish in its needs and desires, so be careful how you utilize this tremendous energy. Mars also indicates where new ventures or projects can begin, where you will be highly motivated, where you can expect to be much more competitive, but also quarrels if aspected poorly.


    Sex and lovemaking energy is very high this year and the potential for accident is present for yourself and children. Children may require more than normal attention now and be careful that family members are not neglected.


    Gambling and speculative ventures are not favored as a certain discipline will be lacking in your life. Sexual jealousy or frustrations are possible, so try to take the "edge" off by engaging in dancing or physical activity. You can be somewhat crude or invite physical harm to yourself now, or on the other hand you may get involved in a sudden and impulsive love relationship.


    If Mars makes a difficult aspect while in the 5th house, then your behavior can be characterized as undisciplined to say the least, especially in social situations. There is also a tendency to choose entertainment that is exciting, or watch horror or action movies now.


Mars opposition Jupiter:


     Generosity can get out of hand, so be careful with your funds and possessions this year. If you cannot afford to buy something, don't buy it now! Use caution in your spending now, as you may purchase something with a lot of good will in your heart, for the wrong or undeserving people. You may find out too late that the people that you put your time, effort and love into do not have your best intentions at heart. It is therefore better to buy small gifts and offer small tokens, than to look like a major fool!


    Arrogance, accidents and impulsive actions are advised against and caution is advised in business dealings with foreigners and danger is present while travelling!


    Financial mistakes can easily be made, leaving you with egg on your face. This period is unfavorable for any legal activities and don't start any new endeavors because impatience and carelessness can be your downfall.


    Relationships actually appear better than they are this year. Unethical business practices should be avoided and use caution when dealing with others, especially foreigners. Be careful of others who encourage you to spend money or waste your time and energy as money comes and money goes very quickly now. Challenges will excite you  and impulsive and hasty actions will be your downfall as you go off like a loose cannon and more than likely wind up overextending yourself and getting involved in very UNWISE ventures. Legal and religious disagreements occur now, so avoid remarks made to others, no matter how innocent they were meant to be. Travel and trips will prove to be more expensive than you counted on through your own extravagance as well.


Mars conjunction Uranus:


    Instability surrounds you now and a very disruptive period has arrived in your life. You can easily experience some very upsetting events that will need your immediate attention this year.


    Electrical breakdowns can manifest quite suddenly now,  or you may notice a buildup of tension in your life and sudden releasing of this energy can be quite devastating for those around you. Flying off the handle this year is a result of a lack of exercise and misdirected energy and if you are looking for arguments, they will be easy to find, in fact, they may come looking for you.


    You will be somewhat accident prone temporarily and unusual injuries can occur. Challenges that enter your life now can bring you to the "edge", showing you where your limitations can be found, also your weaknesses.


    Avoid stimulants that attack the nervous system such as coffee, drugs or chemicals. Car problems can suddenly arise or mechanical breakdowns can occur. High energy is present that requires a positive outlet and sudden actions will be initiated that will not be thought out before acting. You may also receive news that someone has passed away.


Mars Sesquiquadrate Asc.:


    You have harnessed tremendous energy now, what productive work are you going to do with it? You will be very impulsive in your actions this year because you are ready for any activity that requires physical fortitude. Without a plan though, you can grind up your gears on the starting line, all go with no show!


    There will be a longing to get a move on in any field or endeavor you choose, but at the same time learn to mind your own business and stay out of other peoples affairs. In other words no gossiping.







The placement of Jupiter in the solar return chart determines in what areas of your life you are likely to have opportunities for growth and expansion during the coming year.



Solar Return Jupiter in 11th house:


    Jupiter is in your 11th house this year. Jupiter tends to expand your efforts and brings good fortune and positive change to the house it occupies. Jupiter shows where favor will be found from others, education, spiritual matters, learning and teaching.


    The emphasis is on group activities and organizations that will benefit you in some way. Friends become more supportive of your endeavors and the need to be with many people or have more friends is present. You will learn a great deal about yourself now, but don't allow selfishness to enter your life. What you give out to others will come back 10 fold this year. An increased sense of brotherhood with the world and humanitarian efforts will be satisfying and rewarding. If Jupiter makes a stressful aspect while in the 11th house there is the danger of using friends and organizations for your own personal and selfish gain.


Jupiter opposition Uranus:


    YOU CAN SUDDENLY MAKE A CHANGE IN YOUR JOB OR DIRECTION IN LIFES WORK, WITHOUT ANY WARNING this year. Challenges will occur to money, difficulties arriving out of the blue and quite unexpectedly.


    The need for change for the sake of change alone will be high. Risks will remain risks this year and are to be considered ones that will fail. You may have to take sudden and difficult long distance trips and find that dealing with foreigners or customs and modes of transportation will be extremely difficult. Be careful not to be rude with others because this can be a direct result of your own inner restlessness.


    There will be a great need for sudden and new freedom in your relationships and dealings with others. You will not listen to the opinions of others very well either under this influence. Heated words with people in your environment and accidents is possible, and this is an unfavorable time for finding the money needed for that new project.


    Adventures, changes in occupation, separations, divorce, moving and losses of money can accompany this influence. Business ventures are likely to fail as well.







The placement of Saturn in the solar return chart determines where you will encounter obstacles, difficult lessons, and where discipline will be needed in your life during the coming year.



Solar Return Saturn in 9th house:


    Saturn is in your 9th house this year. The purpose of the planet Saturn is to teach us and help us to mature in the houses associated with Saturn. The stronger we resist these changes, the stronger the effects will be felt until we submit to a more structured way of life.  Saturn brings with it obligation, commitment, responsibility and a more serious demeanor. An increase in work, self control and discipline, as well as disappointment and delays, matters from the past returning, people in authority or government agencies.


    Past efforts can now begin to bear fruit for your efforts this year. Legal difficulties can arise, or you can be somewhat accident prone during long distance travels. This placement attracts religious, philosophic and metaphysical subjects and is a wonderful time for mental studies but be careful of taking on too much of an academic workload. Contacts with foreigners or people different from yourself will be somewhat difficult. If Saturn is making a difficult aspect while in the 9th house, there can be difficulties in educational pursuits.


Saturn Quincunx Neptune:


    Past indiscretions can come back on you, bringing problems. What you did in the past becomes an open book for the world to see, and can be publicly revealed. Boy, talk about tests in what you believe. Your health is very vulnerable to hidden conditions, so take care of yourself. Deceptions are at all time high, so don't let it find you now.


    Avoid drinking or smoking because the body will be more vulnerable to them than usual. You've heard the expression you are your own worst enemy haven't you? Well, this is the influence that started it!


    Work will become very unappealing and avoided, and negativity will be experienced to and from others.


Saturn SemiSquare Node:


    Health matters can be somewhat vulnerable through constipation, lessened bowel movements or constrictions in the throat or throat muscles.


    Gloom, depression and sadness can easily occur this year, so stop blaming others for your failures and inability to keep a long lasting friendship or relationship going.





Uranus, Neptune and Pluto


The placement of the 3 outer planets in the solar return chart indicates areas in your life that are likely to take surprising twists and turns, where idealism and illusion may enter your life, or where compulsive or extreme situations may arise in your life during the coming year.



Solar Return Uranus in 5th house:


    Uranus is in your 5th house this year. Uranus is the planet that causes us to make changes of the sudden and electric kind in our lives with very little regard as to whether we want to or not.  Where matters are apt to be unpredictable, where we separate ourselves from our environment as well as attractions to the new and untried. Original ideas, awakening to new concepts and unconventional behavior highlight Uranus in the houses.


    The creative faculties come along with insights of genius this year. Pursuing happiness and love relationships will be electric, different or completely upsetting. Excitement is the key here and you will take it any way that you can get it. Investments can take a change suddenly. If Uranus makes a difficult aspect while in the 5th house, romance will be very unstable and sudden pregnancies will have to be dealt with. There can be sudden losses through speculation and sudden situations can arise around or connected to children and losses can come through investments as well.


Solar Return Neptune in 4th house:


    Neptune is in your 4th house this year. Neptune is the Grand Master of illusion, deception, imagination and inspiration, perhaps all at the same time. Psychic and intuitive aspects can emerge from our personalities either consciously or subconsciously and new concepts that are somewhat poetic, compassionate and humanitarian can easily arise. As long as we remain realistic in our approach to life, we shouldn't encounter too many lessons though. Expect Neptune to put you through many changes of perceptions and your views or reality will be altered several times as well. Neptune is where you are vulnerable, gullible, and where mis-information, false hopes but spiritual enlightenment can be found.


    Real estate purchased this year may have real problems with plumbing or liquids of any kind that may leak, possibly underground especially if Neptune is under a hard aspect. The domestic front becomes confusing and resources or outlays in energy prove exhausting. If Neptune makes a difficult aspect while in the 4th house, responsibilities with family members can arise and problems in gas, oil or water leaks can take place in the home.


Solar Return Pluto in 2nd house:


    Pluto is in your 2nd  house this year. Pluto is the master of digging down beneath the surface of who you are and bring some very powerful yet subtle changes into your life. Pluto is where your OBSESSIONS can be found this year, where your personal "power" can be found, major changes in life, and changes in life with regard to groups of people.


    Drastic changes can take place with your material possessions and income. If you allow status or material matters to hold power over you there can be losses. If Pluto makes a difficult aspect while in the 2nd house, you may attempt underhanded methods to make money or be subjected to dishonest people yourself.


Pluto sextile Asc.:


    Creative changes take place this year and you can find an increase in your own personal power. Expect to draw intense people to you who can have a profound effect on your thinking.


    The expression of creativity in its purest form is likely to be intense now, and this timeframe favors domestic and professional matters.


    Occult or scientific matters can take place in the home during this year. Are you planning to make changes in the appearance of your home? this is the time to do so.

Interaction of the Solar Return and Natal Chart


     The following influences are based on the relationship of the solar return to the natal chart. These influences tend to bring about changes in attitudes and your perspective on life.



Natal 7th on solar Asc:


    With your Natal 7th house on the Solar Ascendant,  making compromises to others, and overlooking differences for the sake of  relationships can come into focus. Any difficulties in love and relationships are likely to surface to be dealt with. You are more than likely to be the initiator of  relationships now. Matters of marriage and divorce or  litigation are all part of this energy, and are sure to be an essential part of what is going on in some way.


Natal Asc in solar 7th house:


     With your Natal Ascendant now in the Solar 7th house your social identity will become very important. This house represents your partnerships both romantic and platonic, contractual obligations, and open enemies. The 7th house represents a stronger emphasis on one-to-one relationships. Most importantly, it is where you as an individual fit this year.
