Your Solar Return Forecast Report begins on March 18, 2002.
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 Scorpio :
FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR GOALS NOW
You can either be the devil bringing destruction and ruin,
or an angel bestowing blessings on your fellow human beings.
Those are the only two options this year, and there are no
in-betweens. You will be extremely courageous, strong willed,
sensitive, and emotionally deep inside. The capacity you have to
overcome any obstacle or adversity that comes to you is
unequaled by any other sign.
You are not easy to understand this year due to your complex
makeup. No one would ever say that you don't go after what you
want, even if what you want is no good for you, that is beside
the point. You do so in a quiet an unassuming way and usually
get what you want. You live life to the fullest and dislike
people who are superficial. Life has a certain passion and
intensity that loves a good challenge, fight, or dare to do the
unmentionable no matter where it may take you. For you the
struggles in life and the pain it brings are normal daily
occurrences and you take them in stride.
With Scorpio on the Ascendant this year, your physical
stamina will increase, staying with projects until the very end,
and can be somewhat obsessed with strengthening the body. You
will stay with your goals to the bitter end now as long as there
is a glimmer of hope at success. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and,
secondarily, by this sign's ancient ruler, the planet Mars. You
will be attracted to people who are also strong and magnetic. In
your personal affairs you will become more secretive, not
willing to reveal to the public your private business. Should
you have any bouts with illness during this time, your
recuperative abilities are strong, adversities that would befall
many others. Health wise, vulnerable areas are the head, face
and illnesses of the reproductive organs.
Psychic abilities and insights into other peoples motives
along with knowledge of the hidden side of their personality are
a natural gift you share. You are not wishy-washy about people,
so when you meet someone you go on first impressions, and how
they feel to you. You go through life using an on board radar
that defies explanation, as if you could, and that is the way it
was meant to be.
Whether it is a career, love, relationships, decisions,
hunches, jealousy or hatred, you do so with your whole heart.
You have a special kinship to the animal world and I would be
surprised not to see dogs and cats scattered around the property
this year. You seem to communicate with pets on a much different
level then you do with your fellow humans. You are intensely
loyal in your relationships and your partner had better
understand that before they get involved or they will suffer the
wrath of your revenge. Look to where PLUTO is located to see
where your OBSESSIONS will be this year.
Ascendant is in Scorpio, Scorpio Decanate
Ruled by the planet Mars/Pluto, you are inwardly emotional,
shy, modest and secretive and you will either be the devil
incarnate or a saint, there can be no in-between. The
possibility of going from one extreme to the other in area of
your life is a strong possibility. You will be very active and
changeable by the moment, and taken negatively, you can take
everything way too seriously and may find that you have to learn
to lighten up.
Ruler of Ascendant in 2nd house
With the Solar Ascendant Ruler in the Solar 2nd house, the
focus is on security, material possessions, values and where
your income or resources can be found this year.
Solar Return MC Leo:
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 be courageous, proud and somewhat egotistical.
In your career you need a position where all of that Leo energy
can shine through. A job in the background would stunt your
growth and creativity leaving you bored to death. You are a born
leader and because of this you do not take direction or orders
from others very well. Careers that allow your creative energy
to shine, that bring forth your outstanding and dramatic
abilities are what you seek.
With Leo on the Midheaven, your strong ego needs will look
for expression in the public in some way. You may find that
assistance comes from the father or an authority figure this
year. Careers for Leo include acting, politic, lecturing or a
spokesperson for others. You may decide to start working for
yourself or rise to a new position in your company.
You are known for your courage and strength of character,
and other people recognize it and you draw them to you for their
own support and source of inspiration. Yes, you are somewhat
self centered and what mark you can make on the world in the
name of self expression is your forte. Do the best that you can,
and the world can use you as a model for their own gain and
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.
Sagittarius on 2nd cusp:
With Sagittarius on the second house cusp you will not have
to worry about being reserved, cheap or secretive in financial
affairs. You will be generous, willing to share what you have
with people in need. For you, your interest in finances extends
only to taking care of your needs and sharing, therefore you may
not accumulate very much because of your extravagant nature. You
are likely to draw success and finances to you because of your
naturally lucky personality. You are likely to take risks and
suffer some financial losses from time to time. Look to the
house containing Jupiter for some insight as to where money can
be made. There might be some travel associated with the money
that you make as well.
Capricorn on 3rd cusp:
With Capricorn on the third house of communication and
learning, you are careful in your expression of thoughts and
ideas. You are not the kind of person who sits down and write
letters or speaking unless the need is absolutely necessary.
Because of this you may be seen as secretive or cold in
communication. You must be very careful to choose your words
carefully and with great forethought, because you can be quite
harsh in speech with others and with family, friends and
acquaintances. You are not into idle chit-chat, and because of
this it will be difficult for people to communicate with you.
The only things that interest you is what can turn your
thoughts, ideas and ambitions into reality to work for you. Look
to the house where Saturn is found to get some idea where your
interests can be found.
Aquarius on 4th cusp:
With Aquarius on the fourth house of the home, family,
roots, real estate, property and security, you will stress a
great deal of freedom within the structure of the home. You will
not want to be tied down to a daily routine, and domestic chores
will be decided when you get to it. You will experience many
domestic upsets, may move frequently and find it difficult to
settle in one place. To say the least, your living arrangements
may be unusual, be it bomb shelter, school bus, pup tent or
camper that you hang your names on. On a positive note your home
may be filled with electronic devices, computers, Internet,
security and toys to keep you busy. You can come up with some
great innovative ideas that should spice up your home life. Look
to the house where Uranus is located to see where your home
security can be found.
Pisces on 5th cusp:
You have Pisces on the fifth house of Children, recreation,
romance and creativity, artistic abilities, hobbies, writing
books (creatively), speculation and investments. You can be
somewhat frustrated in creativity, romance and children as
constant disappointment and disillusionment accompany Pisces
here because of Neptune, the ruler. Nevertheless, there is a
strong determination to make some difference in the world
through your creativity, maybe in film or photography, art and
music. Making sacrifices for children is a requirement for
Pisces in the fifth house. Look to the house where Neptune is
located to see where you might find your recreation and romance
Aries on 6th cusp:
You have Aries on the cusp of the sixth house of Work, Work
environment, responsibilities, health, work and service for
others, relationships with employees and co-workers, and your
interest in physical fitness. You are very hard working, and get
great satisfaction from the work that you do, but can get lost
in your work, excluding everything else. Sometimes you can have
difficulties with people around you because of your enthusiastic
attitude, where you may be critical of people who are not up to
your standards. You may work each other very hard at home or on
the job and take a very stern view of health and diet. Look to
the house where Mars is located to see where you might find work
or service to others.
Taurus on 7th cusp:
Relationships, partnerships, marriage, people you have
close associations with, cooperation or lack of, contracts, and
legal matters are all part of the seventh house, with Taurus
located here. Loyalty but jealousy and possessiveness will play
a strong role in relationships now. You may be involved in a
relationship that took a long time to get started, and the
process of marriage can only come about after careful scrutiny.
Stubbornness exists in relationships, and some stormy days can
be expected. Material benefits can easily come to relationships,
and security not extravagance is the key to success. Look to the
house that contains Venus to see how you will deal with
Gemini 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. Gemini will have an influence on the
above matters by discussing matters by the hour until you
uncover every last detail of what is before you. You always have
some pretty good ideas how you should invest or spend money, and
the bigger the challenge the better. Look to see which house
Mercury is located in, to see where your joint money can be
Cancer on 9th cusp:
The ninth house is the house of long range goals and long
distance travel. Religion, philosophy and higher education are
ninth house matters. With Cancer ruling the ninth house, you
will be emotionally connected to areas that put the spotlight on
you, especially in the areas of religion, education and
promotions. You will work long and hard on causes that you
believe in, and working a long distance from your home would not
present any problems for you. Look to the house where the Moon
is located to see where your interests in higher aspirations can
Virgo on 11th cusp:
The eleventh house has domain over achievement of goals and
objectives, and hopes and wishes. Humanitarian efforts, clubs,
groups, associations, sharing ideals are also associated with
the eleventh house. People that support your efforts, friends
and connections to the outside world can be found in this house.
With Virgo located in the eleventh house, the focus turns to
serving friends, groups and organizations. You will be somewhat
detached, but work very hard for the welfare of each other, and
friends. Crowds are not your forte, and your immediate friends
will be few in number. Look to the house where Mercury is
located to see where you might find your friends, associations
and group involvements and interests.
Libra on 12th cusp:
The twelfth house rules the subconscious mind, problems
arising from unseen causes, and limitations in our lives. This
house has rulership over behind the scenes activities, emotional
problems, secrets, deceptions, problems to overcome, the side of
ourselves away from public view, where the soul can step back
and take a look at the world around us. The twelfth house also
has rulership over prisons, hospitals, and other institutions
that would remove you from society. Libra energy on the twelfth
house indicates you can easily become a loner, and feel that
your relationships in some way can be fated right from the very
beginning. Working together or with others may not work out as
you want it to, and lessons in cooperation and working in
harmony are the culprits. Look to the house where Venus is
located to find that area in which you retire from public view.
The placement of the Sun in the solar return chart is very
important and affects almost every area of your life!
Sun in 5th house:
The Solar Sun is now in your 5th 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.
Your interests this year will be on amusements, recreation,
children, new loves without commitment, just being yourself with
no boundaries set on you, idealized romance, social contacts and
to be out at places of fun and amusement and matters connected
with pregnancy and childbirth. Your sexual drive will be
stimulated as well. Look at the aspects to the Solar Sun this
year to see what you can accomplish.
Sun semisquare Moon:
Pride can really get you in trouble, especially this year.
You may easily offend others with what you say, so try to be
more considerate of others. Disagreements will occur with
everyone around you, because it's just one of those years when
it cannot be avoided. Authority over you can be questioned and
your reactions will be less than tolerable. Stress is caused by
inner conflict that is unresolved during this year. Try to find
the cause of that turbulence in your life.
A loss of confidence is possible this year and you may want
to spend some time by yourself. Differing value standards can
cause disagreements so find a way around obstacles rather than
through them. You can expect to be somewhat irritable, upset,
emotional or frustrated this year. Avoid spending for the next
year because you will only buy junk you didn't need and when
this is over you'll admit it to yourself. Save yourself some
money and don't gamble this year.
Sun semisquare 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 semisextile Uranus:
The wheel of fortune can easily bring possibilities for
advancement, or a desire to learn something new. This is a great
year for a second honeymoon and this year favors buying or
playing with some new electronic gadgets or toys. Wonderful
creative insights can fill your head this year, so try and use
them for your own advantage. Social activities increase and
whatever you tackle should work out very well.
This is a wonderful influence for a family gathering and the
grasping of new ideas will be very easy for you this year. A
time of increased popularity has found you and exciting
adventures can be experienced. Some mild speculations can be
rewarding as well.
Romantic encounters or relationships that start this year
are guaranteed to be ELECTRIC in nature. Some sort of sudden
turn in your life can easily occur that will have you looking at
things in totally new ways. You may suddenly decide to move or
change your vocation. Creativity is blessed with new concepts,
ideas and form.
Sun square Node:
Don't expect communications to be easy with the rest of the
world this year. A withdrawal from social activities can be
expected. Problems with the nervous system can develop and
physical exercise may be the key to relieving the tension.
Relationships between men and women will not do well and
creative endeavors should be left alone, for a more fortunate
time. You may want to be a leader, but the timing is very
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 7th house:
The Solar Moon is now in your 7th 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.
Personal and close relationships with your mate and
associates come to the foreground now. Security and insecurities
surface depending on how the relationship is this year and
emotional encounters will be intense. Arguments with spouse,
partners, the public, salespersons and visitors are all possible
and sudden legal matters can arise to be dealt with, OR be
settled this year. You may find that you have to seek legal
advice now or see a doctor for something that has come up all of
a sudden. You will be able to learn a great deal about yourself
when you listen while you speak to others. If the Solar Moon
makes stressful aspects while in the 7th house, there can be
quarrels over finances and domestic matters.
Moon sextile Mercury:
If you have to sign any papers, this year is the time to do
so. Enhanced mental faculties exist this year and a good grasp
of all situations and sound judgment is present. Dexterity will
come easily in oral or written forms as well. Expect to be
active, perceptive, more compassionate and sympathetic,
protective and thoughtful to people in your environment. Be
ready to receive pleasant messages and news and consider this an
excellent year for being alone to meditate. Opportunities will
arise during this year for you to express yourself or commit
yourself to situations.
Moon semisextile Venus:
Physical attractions, harmony, great feelings and an
appreciation for beauty exist in your life this year. This is a
very POSITIVE time for love and romance, children, gentleness,
sensuality or being in love and devoted to your spouse or mate.
If you have been fighting, had disagreements or experienced a
breakup in relationships, you can easily see them renewed this
Happiness is in abundance with feelings of tenderness and
affection for everyone in your environment. Women may decide
they want to have a baby this year.
Moon conjunction Mars:
This year will find you in an arrogant sort of mood and you
will want to keep your distance from others so they don't try to
force themselves on you. Irritating people and circumstances can
lead to rash behavior because of intense emotions this year.
Angry responses to matters of sexuality, feeling betrayed and
feeling not needed will be evident this year and may last a long
Moon semisextile Saturn:
Love has a stable and enduring quality to it this year. This
is the time to go shopping because what you are looking for may
be on sale. This year can bring back people, women, and older
friends from the past. You will experience calm and stable
emotions when dealing with others in your environment. This is
an excellent influence for settling down with someone, finding
support and security.
Moon square Neptune:
Confusion and delusions can cloud your sense of reality this
year, and self destructive behavior should be excluded from your
environment. Allow more time to pray or meditate, as mood swings
will need to be brought under cpontrol. There will also be
sluggish circulation, and a year filled with worry and
rejection, realized or fantasy.
During this year it would be best to refrain from using any
form of drugs or alcohol. You will find that your psychic
impressions and ESP can be out of whack temporarily. There can
be some overwhelming obsession to someone, perhaps a Pisces
Moon opposition Asc.:
Emotional difficulties in self expression and dealing with
others in your environment exists, especially where women and
domestic areas are concerned.
Moon square MC:
This is not a time for work because you are in a very lazy
frame of mind. Instead, this is a year for goofing off! Your
emotions are out of harmony with others, and there can be
difficulty adjusting to family expectations as well. Domestic
problems can arise and should be dealt with immediately. This is
an unfavorable time for public relations and business activities
involving public contact. There will also be an uncertainty
relating to people that you associate with, and a lack of
maturity in social situations. You may notice some temporary
allergic reactions to your environment and minor problems with
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 4th house:
Mercury is in your 4th 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
Discussions can take place close to home with your mother or
immediate family. Communicate your feelings about events that
have bothered you in the past or matters that need ironing out.
Sometimes this placement in the fourth indicates a change of
residence because of a career change. Home improvements can also
take place with this placement. If Mercury makes a harsh aspect
while in the 4th house, the emotions can interfere with logic
and reasoning. Communications with family and with domestic
matters will become more difficult to resolve.
Mercury sextile Mars:
People involved in sales or communications will prosper and
the home, property and family interests will be activated.
Mental alertness this year will bring quick decisions resulting
in success. Total recall of past events aids you in discovering
hidden elements of yourself. This is one of those influences
that supports sticking to your guns for what you believe in.
Winning arguments can be easy this year and any
communications, study, writing and research of any kind will be
fortunate. This is an excellent placement for the formulation of
agreements and contracts and any military and police activities.
This is an excellent year to make peace with others, not
war. Teach, council and help others. Short trips related to work
are emphasized and last minute invitations to sporting events
can arrive. This is an excellent time to do some investigative
work into something you are curious about.
Mercury trine Jupiter:
Chances are good for acquiring something of substantial
value that puts a smile on your face this year. Always get
expert professional opinions in all matters that are important
to you. The power of positive thinking will see you through the
toughest of times. Learn how to play the game of life instead of
bucking the system!
Make pacts or agreements with others or sign documents
because the time is right. Credit purchases can soar this year,
just make sure you don't go overboard in your spending, putting
you into further debt.
Communications and ideas will flow easily and the
clairvoyant faculties are stimulated. A friendly attitude
prevails, PHONE CALLS INCREASE, and letter writing is favored.
SIGN CONTRACTS for favorable outcomes and take any form of test
for assured success. Write down ideas when they come to you, no
matter where you are because you may forget something very
beneficial to you in the future. The force is definitely with
you where words are concerned.
Mercury square Saturn:
If you are involved in sales, they may not be up to par and
it might be best to reschedule clients. Dragging the past into
your life this year won't help matters, so leave them in the
past. Keep things on a strictly legal basis and keep business
strictly business this year.
Communication problems can leave you alienated from others,
and lost mail or delays in deliveries can be expected. People
will say what is on their mind this year and you will not take
criticism very well.
Negativity and mistrust surround you this year and ill
health and problems with bones, teeth, constipation, aches,
pains, colds and flu can develop. Energy levels and vitality
will be very low as well. This is not good time for legal

People in public relations fields will be filled with
inspiration this year, so let inspiration be your guide.
Heightened intuition and creativity can take you into unknown
year areas for exploration, so follow your hunches, you never
know what genius lies inside you
Make agreements, sign documents and travel, as they are all
under favorable influences. You have the ability to sense coming
events and spiritual awareness is very strong. This is an
excellent time to make some plans in advance, with strong
yearnings for far off places and people.
Secret information and investigations into something you
have been curious about can be accomplished and you will find
that you have a very metaphysical type of mind temporarily,
interested and fascinated by science fiction.
Always read everything before you sign, as you can get lost
in a day dream and miss the fine print. The study of mystical
subjects is favored and you can be the channel for a spiritual
source, so open up a channel and await further instructions.
Photography, drawing and painting are all favored as well.
Mercury trine Asc.:
The mind is quick, alert and alive this year and agreements
can be formulated in disputes. The phone may never stop ringing
and communications with your fellow man or woman will be easy,
harmonious and lively. Health, diet, writing and self expression
The placement of Venus in the solar return chart affects romance
and friendship over the coming year.
Solar Return Venus in 5th house:

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.
A wonderful year for having fun, entertaining, being
creative, love relationships and social affairs involving
children. "Being yourself" is highlighted and this is a
wonderful year for recreating into your favorite diversion. If

and mixing business with pleasure can be successfully
integrated. Good business practices can pay off in very positive
ways. This is considered to be an excellent year for women to
become pregnant. Emotional distractions can get in the way of
important issues, so try to keep your emotions in check.
Business and finances are favored and secret behind the scenes
activities can easily work to your advantage. Secret love
affairs can be kept secret as it should be and your personal
assertion level will be high. Your tone of voice will be soft
spoken and infatuations can arise quite suddenly and
passionately. Changes in appearance can take place, making
favorable impressions on everyone. This is a wonderful time to
go out and flirt with someone as well.
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
Venus SemiSquare Uranus:
Vacation plans can go right out the window this year and
sudden and upsetting circumstances can bring separations from
loved ones. Contracts and agreements can easily be broken, or
you can be attracted to weird things in life, although they may
not be necessarily good for you. Love adventures that start this
year are likely to end as soon as the year ends. Don't try to
convince people to make changes, they might not react too well
Relationships will be very disruptive as some moody
characteristics can emerge. Repressed emotions, unfaithfulness,
bohemian attitudes, a lack of direction and impulse spending are
effects of this year. This is an unfavorable time for trying out
new ideas or products. Avoid any risks in love and friendships,
so learn to take your time in relationships, don't get carried

Harmony in relationships is indicated by this year, so use
charm as a tool to get what you want. Soul connections with
others will be very strong and powerful and you can experience a
strong psychic rapport with others in your environment.
Visionary business practices pay off very nicely, so
introduce new ideas to someone, they will be well received now.
This is a highly favorable time for romance, or this can be a
highly creative time. Romance can take place at a distant place,
or while travelling. There will be a strong intuitive awareness
of other peoples' moods and feelings that will be very much on

year and renewed commitments of love can be undertaken. Insights
into love can occur that are quite profound and strong
attractions to the opposite sex will be felt. Marital relations
can find their beginning now, and if at all possible, give
flowers to someone special. True love can be found somewhere
close by you, and remember that "Love will conquer all" is the
theme of this influence. Those of sad heart will be much happier
than in the past this year.
Thus is a time of sexual stimulation which should be quite
exciting and there will be a greater tolerance for others and is
a virtue which should be exercised at every opportunity. Your
social life will pick up and you may have the urge to invite
people over for a party. Secret loves can easily develop and

drive, ambition, and vitality during the coming year.
Solar Return Mars in 7th house:
Mars is in your 7th 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.
Tensions arrive in your life and negative relationships will
suffer the consequences. Creativity is on the rise and be
careful of compromising too much in any litigation or divorce.
The domestic front will be very touchy with aggressive attitudes
but an active participation in social activities is favored. If
Mars forms a difficult aspect while in the 7th house, there is a
danger of physical confrontations, or face disagreements in
marriage or with partners.
Mars square Neptune:
You may discover that you have been betrayed by someone very
dear to you this year, as deceptions can be found at the highest
levels of work, government or domestic life. Getting the truth
from others is not promising, and avoid potential hazards to
your health or well being by using care in what you do.
It is likely that you will be easily discouraged in your
attempts to succeed and find your vitality is on the low side.
Avoid wasted and destructive energies, impulsive actions,
failures, misuse and abuse of others, criminal behavior and
infections which are all side effects. Remember, your ENERGY
LEVELS WILL BE NON-EXISTENT.
Keep away from drugs or drinking because they will react
adversely on your body and misunderstandings with others will be
easy to come by, you won't have to go looking for them, they
will find you.
Confusion and chaotic conditions can easily arrive in your
life now and new ventures or business should wait until the fog
you call a mind clears. Dangerous conditions CAN exist around
areas where escaping gas, toxic chemical or fumes, flammable
liquids and gases are stored or located.
Mars opposition 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
Mars square MC:
You will be much more aggressive in nature now and conflicts
that need be, can and should be, if you keep your emotions in
order. This would be an excellent time to be by yourself if
possible as disputes and an explosive personality are your
closest friends now. You will exhibit a very competitive nature
now and conflicts will be seen in domestic, romantic and
professional situations. Your energy levels will be running very
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 8th house:
Jupiter is in your 8th 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
The emphasis is on inheritances, combining resources,
requesting loans, enjoying occult or mystical subjects, benefits
from joint finances, insurance, taxes, foreign travel for
business or real estate. If Jupiter receives difficult aspects
while in the 8th house, there can be legal difficulties, and
difficulties in business and finances.
Jupiter trine Asc.:
You are able to see the needs of others and can turn it to
your advantage. Your positive mannerisms will attract people to
you, and relationships will be happy. There will be joy when you
are together or with other people, and they will respond the
same way to you.
Your energy flow is smooth and harmonious and you have a
greater faith that everything will work out for you. You might
meet that special someone that brings you great emotional
happiness this year as brand new loves can begin.
This is an excellent time for school or new fields of study
and should you have the opportunity to teach or lecture have no
fear, you have found your present calling, or it has found you.
People that are quite different from yourself or from different
cultures or countries can enter your life. Relations with the
public and marriage are very prosperous.
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 8th house:
Saturn is in your 8th 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.
Bank loans and joint financial matters can suffer losses and
other people may have the money that you desperately need but
will not be willing to share it. The lesson here is values and
knowing your limitations as money can be cut off from outside
sources. If Saturn makes a difficult aspect when in the 8th
house, taxes can be a problem, problems in joint finances and
Saturn trine Neptune:
You can easily uncover some fraudulent circumstances in your
life this year. This is a stabilizing influence for behavior
that up until now has been very careless, because you will act
with caution. This is an excellent time to start a research
project, or an older person may bring some mystical or romantic
feelings into your life and you may find it somehow very
This is a most fortunate placement as the inner self becomes
your teacher, so listen carefully so you can hear it when the
time comes. DO NOT seek council from others, take time to
investigate your inner self. It is a very perceptive time where
religious, metaphysical and intuitive insights are gained.
Disciplined spiritual growth can be gained through
meditation and determined efforts and this is an excellent year
for focusing and steadying the mind. Past acquaintances can
present opportunities for advancement as well.
Saturn Quincunx Asc.:
Being around people and social situations will make you very
uneasy now and you will prefer your own privacy to feel secure.
You can easily be disappointed by others this year or suffer
some arthritic conditions, problems with the knees and find that
your teeth are more sensitive, fragile and can break quite
Heavy burdens may plague you during this time and this is a
period of fleeting depression because of responsibilities that
have taken their toll. This is a difficult time to connect with
others in a friendly and gracious way because it will seem that
the universe has put a "block" between you and the rest of the
Relationships can undergo tests that will either make it
stronger, or break it. Work and personal demands can prove
taxing and frustrating, and walls can form between two people.
Cold and unsympathetic attitudes to and from people in your
surroundings can occur. Negative people seem to find you making
your attitude negative and your energy and vitality are on the
low side, so schedule time for some much needed rest.
Responsibilities may be laid on you to take care of others
or lawsuits and legal difficulties can arise and have to be
attended to this year.
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 4th house:
Uranus is in your 4th 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
Old hang ups can arise to be dealt with creating some
discord and separations and unexpected and sudden changes occur
in the domestic scene. A change of residence is possible
somewhere with the placement of Uranus here, or you may decide
to make much needed repairs. If Uranus makes a difficult aspect
while in the 4th house, home projects will not do well, moves
that were planned will not go well if at all and business
activities centered around the home will not do well.
Uranus trine Node:
You can meet people quite suddenly this year who seem to be
sharing the same destiny as you are. You seem to be magnetized
which draws new friends to you quite easily.
It is very impulsive to take shortcuts to change without the
benefit of improvement.
Solar Return Neptune in 3rd house:
Neptune is in your 3rd 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.
Communications with kin, neighbors and close family members
can become confusing and perhaps somewhat deceptive this year,
so speak precisely and realistically as possible under this
cloud of confusion. If Neptune makes a difficult aspect while in
the 3rd house, dishonesty can be employed in speaking and
thinking can become very foggy. Appointments can be missed
altogether and communications with you can be very confusing.
Neptune square Asc.:
Partners can easily deceive partners this year, so rely more
on your intuition about others. You will find others fudging the
truth in a very convincing way and there will be an increased
craving for stimulants like drugs, alcohol or caffeine.
Be careful in consulting others for advice as well, as they
may not have your interests at heart. Information received may
be untrue from doctors, lawyers and counselors as they may
conceal matters from you.
Once you can unmask the illusion that surrounds your
relationship and you can recognize it for what it really is you
can avoid a deceptive and unsatisfactory experience. Do not
enter into any marriage or business commitments because they are
not what they "seem" to be. Unfortunately there should be a sign
on you that says "please use me, I can use the abuse!"
You are way too trusting, easily influenced and setting
yourself up for financial and business losses. People who are
emotionally or mentally troubled will find you like a radio
antenna set to your frequency who will "dump" all of their
troubles on you. Let your imagination be just that this year and
put no importance on it. Perhaps what this year is showing you
is yourself in a past life and what you have done to others.
This year it is your turn and you have the same vulnerability
Neptune opposition MC:
Confusion in life direction can easily occur this year. You
may be feeling somewhat inadequate in some area of your life. It
will be very difficult to see what other people want from you in
A negative side to this influence is using underhanded
methods in getting what you want. If you haven't learned it yet,
these actions always backfire and come back to haunt you. Those
wrong doings that you do or contemplate are in danger of being
Being deceived or deceiving others is another side effect of
this influence and deceptions always blow up in your face! The
profession becomes more important to you, to the detriment of
Unpleasant childhood memories can come back to haunt you
this year, so deal with them instead of letting them run your
life. You may experience some gas, water or oil leaks somewhere
in the home or just in general.
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
Pluto opposition Node:
Do not use this time for planning retaliations against
people who have wronged you, even though it will be strong, so
resist the temptation. Be careful of USING people for your own
purposes as well.
Associations can become very burdensome this year and
tension and intolerance for others can lead to unwise choices.
Aspirations for power can lead to problems or frustrations.
Pluto trine MC:
Gradual changes are taking place that forces you to move in
new directions and power may be granted to you over others in
personal or professional life. Be careful what you do with it.
Expect people to be drawn to you, fascinated by that energy and

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 5th on solar Asc:
With your Natal 5th house on the Solar Ascendant, matters of
sex, lovemaking, children, gambling and speculative ventures
will be a major focus this year. Since this position relates to
relationships without commitment, you might be facing issues
related to this as well.
Natal Asc in solar 8th house:
With your Natal Ascendant now in the Solar 8th house,
connecting and merging with others at a very deep level becomes
very important. The 8th House is connected with sex, death, and
others resources. Research, investigative activities,
psychology, and archeology are all part of 8th house activities,
as are the occult and secret pursuits. Most importantly, it is
where you as an individual fit this year.
