Solar Return

Every year the Sun returns to the same degree it was in at the moment of our birth, our astrological birthday, and triggers our personal (birthday) year. This chart is called a Solar Return, and one's return can occur within 1 or 2 days from the actual birthday. To cast a return chart, the location (city and state for U.S. or city and country) where the individual will be during his/her birthday is required.

The Sun is the source of all energy and is life-giving. In astrology, the Sun represents the self we present to the external world, our vital life force, potential, ambitions, intentions, and unrealized/untapped inherent talents/skills. It is our conscious will, our volition that holds our soul's purpose in this life. The Sun is our soul; the Moon is our heart; and the Ascendant or Rising is the 'mask' that the Sun wears.

The Solar Return chart is a powerful, insightful tool to help forecast what might be coming up, as well as 'when', from one birthday to the next. In a solar return reading, the return chart is also compared to the natal chart to add depth and context to the energies revealed in the solar return chart. For instance, if in the return chart, the Midheaven is stimulated, the individual may change careers or establish a new set of future goals or maybe move to a new city. Upon comparison of the return chart with the natal chart, it might show the individual's natural reaction/s to change and whether this is a help or an extra challenge for them for what's to come. It might further show what type of vocation might satisfy the individual's drive or soul; or whether the individual has natural gifts that's yet to be discovered and can now begin to be developed. Forecasting also provides time period/s or specific dates that might be of interest -- extra challenge, a smoother run, possible opportunistic times, etc. This is a simplistic depiction of what a Solar Return reading is like. But as in life, there are layers and overlaps, and these are also revealed in the Solar Return chart, especially when superimposed over the Natal Chart.
