SLAR RETURN SUN
10th HOUSE VIRGO
The sun is the most significant planet in the solar return chart. Its position by house shows the most
emphasized area of life during the coming year, how and where you will expend most of your energy.
The house placement is reflected in the interpretation of all the other planets, and may be the
motivating force behind their symbolism.
The tenth house is what’s known as an angular house – it is a house of career and social status - and
in this position the focus is on initiating new situations or correcting old situations through various
relationships. New beginnings are common in the angular houses.
In the Solar Return Chart, the 10th house is a very assertive position for the sun to be in and
represents a period of great opportunity. The focus of life is on career and public image. You want to
shine in this area and have a great deal of pride in your social status or career. This is the time to reap
what you have sown. If you haven’t prepared yourself for the push towards greater achievement and
recognition then you may feel frustrated with the lack of success during this year. It’s too late to start
when you’ve reach the 10th house. Every year is a culmination of the work done previously. Self-
development and the discovery of personal abilities and limitations should take place when the Sun is
in the 1st house. If you have not done the work, then it’s possible that you will not have all the
necessary skills for the opportunities that will be presented.
Tasks associated with the 10th support 7th house issues, the house of relationships and partnerships.
You could be the boss, employee, or both. You may be concerned with your reputation and how you
appear to the public and coworkers. It’s a time to develop your listening skills and empathy. Good
your managerial skills and successful business relationships will help you with personal relationships
This is a strong career year for you and in this house a strong emphasis is on all career matters. It’s a
good time to push for advancement and work toward great career fulfillment. You are more likely to
make major career decisions or be recognized for your professional achievements at this time. You are
also more likely to be reprimanded for any professional misconduct. The reputation you have created
in the past will catch up to you and it can be good or bad depending on what you have or haven’t
accomplished and what you did to get it.
If you like your job and worked hard all along, then you should push for advancement. However, if
you don’t, then don’t let it threaten your goals. You’re better off changing or starting your own
business than staying at a job you hate.
In this position, you have lots of control over your professional life direction and general life direction
as well. The 10th is the house of destiny, therefore, you can make decisions about where you are
headed for the next set of years. You can pick a new path or direction. Normally the focus of attention
shifts to a new area of major concern, and this focus of attention can nag at you for several years. It’s
possible the changes relate to or affect your career, but not always.
Another potential of this are issues with authority. If you are the one in authority, then be mindful of
your managerial techniques. Any success is linked to your ability to lead and motivate those you
control. If you are not the one in charge, then it is important to learn to please the ones that are so
they recognize your hard work and reward you accordingly.
Self-employed individuals will experience success from their ability to please the public and perform
well. How you deal with the tasks will determine how much success you achieve by the end of this
solar return year. Interest in learning and mastering techniques will help improve the chances for
If your parents are still authority figures to you, then they will be influential in your decisions. If they
are an authority in a field that interests you then you can garner a great deal of advice from them.
You can do things to spite them if you feel the need to break away from their authority. It’s a time to
determine your future and you are the final authority. If you are prepared to meet the challenges and
responsibilities for your decisions then what waits for you is great opportunities.
SUN TRINE MOON
You will show more enthusiasm and vitality during this year. Your thinking will be very positive and
you will want to take the initiative and make decisions that you have not considered before. Your
confidence in yourself will be recognized by others and you will receive support from your family and
friends in general. It will be easy to carry out the changes that you propose which will benefit you in
the future. You also could receive help from powerful or very influential women. Your popularity will
increase and you will feel comfortable in your surroundings in spite of any difficulties that you
Your physical body will be very resistant to any type of illness. If you have some kind of on-going
health problem at this time, it is probable that it will be successfully treated during this year. This is
mainly due to the fact that you will find it easier to deal with your emotions, thereby putting less
stress on your mind and body.
This can also indicate compatible external and internal goals and a harmonious time. Common themes
involve domestic and career needs. The two areas will complement each other. Changes in your home
can coincide with career moves. Your unconscious need for emotional fulfillment may be played out
consciously in your environment.
SUN OPPOSE JUPITER
There is a tendency to get involved in projects that could be beyond your capacity. Be realistic and
don't get carried away with your exaggerated enthusiasm. Your positive attitude and your imagination
will increase. This influence encourages you to undertake tasks or to run risks that you have not dared
to do before. Your personality expands into new areas of expertise. It is important that you don't
overextend your energy so that you will be able to finish what you have started. It’s also important to
watch your excessive behavior and curb your personal needs and desires in consideration of others.
Beneficial opportunities are associated with Jupiter, but there is no guarantee. You can change the
possibilities with enthusiasm.
You could also become too generous and extravagant. This will be more noticeable if by nature you
are a conservative person. You probably won't pay much attention to details or the opinions of others,
which could lead to some sort of trouble. You also could become somewhat careless with your paper
work and neglect to do what is expected of you.
This could be reflected in your daily diet as well, which consequently could lead to gaining weight. It is
important to watch your nutrition and your liver. Don't indulge in food excessively.
The aspect between the planets is between your 4th house of family and home and your 10th house of
career and social status. You could be looking for a bigger home in a better neighborhood. But the
themes of this aspect will play out in these two areas.
SUN OPPOSE URANUS
You will feel dissatisfied with your daily routine and will attempt to change it in some way. Your
behavior probably will be more abrupt and less patient than at other times. Your reactions will be
unexpected and more violent. Watch your nervous system, since there is a strong tendency to suffer
stress during this time. You will want to cut off many of your social or work connections if you feel that
they limit your freedom in some way, or they are not in accordance with your new needs. Your
relationships could also be affected and could suffer as a consequence of your need to make changes.
It is important during this time that you are permitted to pursue new experiences, sever relations with
those who are prejudiced, or break traditions that were limiting your freedom. Your rebellious nature
will show itself, and it is better to leave you a clear path. Most of the events and problems will appear
suddenly, and it is advisable that you respond in a constructive way. Take care to moderate your
reactions to events so that you won't lose control over your actions.
It is also important that you remain flexible to change and not waste your energies during this year.
There is a strong tendency to be too nervous and impatient, thereby attracting to you violence and
accidents. Be careful with speed and with electricity.
Uranus aspecting the sun shows you desire to make changes, probably one after the other. Usually
with a major aspect like the opposition there can be significant life changes or developments. With the
houses they are in this also points to career changes and/or relocation. These changes can be more
disruptive and less controllable with this aspect too, however it is not to say that it will not be a
SUN QUINCUNX NEPTUNE
There is a possibility of developing an escapist attitude during this time. Take care that you don't try
to relieve your tensions by acquiring a new bad habit and consequently become addicted to it. This
could be getting involved with drugs, alcohol, martyrdom, dependency situations, and savior-victim
relationships. Those are the more negative manifestations. Your strength could weaken a little and it
is important that you don't commit yourself to projects or tasks that are more than you can handle.
Your sensitivity will also increase, and you can easily be disappointed, hurt, or victimized. Be aware of
your own behavior in order to avoid being deceived or disillusioned by others.
An aspect with Neptune also shows some growth towards being more intuitive and more sensitive.
Perhaps an adjustment made to work on this. Eventually you will learn greater compassion for others
and have a better understanding of relationships. It is common to become less egotistical and more
vulnerable during this year, as you may be confronted with your own frailty or of someone close. On a
positive note, you could be inclined to help those in need and less concerned with your own selfish
SUN SQUARE PLUTO
You will be confronted with people or powerful situations that will put all of your strength to the test.
Some of these situations will be inner conflicts and you will have to fight your own habits or negative
memories that are deeply ingrained inside you. This is a year of transformation and profound changes
in your personality. Don't lose your balance and don't react aggressively or with violence to tense
situations. If you undertake some type of therapy or consultation with a professional, you will manage
these energies more positively.
The principal conflicts are brought on by people who exercise authority over you. You will fight for
power in order to determine who dominates who. How people get, maintain, and use power for
personal goals or for controlling others is more important that the actual struggle for it. You could be
confronted with a person who is overbearing or tyrannical, or it may be you who will dominate and be
inflexible when dealing with others. This could cause ruptures in relationships and total changes in
your social circle. In addition, this influence could cause breakdowns or problems with machines or
equipment owned by you and could lead to disputes over the repairs. Awareness of power give you
more ability to control your own life.
On the more negative side, this astrological aspect could expose you to some kind of physical
violence. Control your speed and stay away from people or places that could be dangerous for you.
SUN SEXTILE ASCENDANT
During this year you will feel very good. You will enjoy the company of others and, therefore, your
relationships will be very favorable. You will show great enthusiasm in your work and everything you
do. You will be full of vitality, joviality, and energy. You will be attracted to happy and amusing people
and events. There also is a possibility of planning some trips during this year.
Physically, you will have the necessary strength to combat any problems you may have. If you have
some physical ailment, you will move toward healing it this year. The improvement will be due to your
positive attitude and to your search for gratification and personal satisfaction. You will be revitalized
and relaxed and, in return, will induce a similar response from your environment.
The relationship with your father, or with people who represent authority figures in your life, will be
very favorable. You could receive the support and collaboration of people in high positions.
SLAR RETURN MN
3RD HUSE AQUARIUS
The Moon in the solar return chart has two consistent themes through all of the houses. First, it’s
associated with change and fluctuation according to its house position. Second, it’s reflective of the
person’s emotional nature for the solar return year. Feelings, temperament, and emotional needs can
be determined by the Moon’s location by sign and through aspects.
The moon in a cadent house is a rather passive position in that you do not feel an onslaught from the
outside, although you can nevertheless be very busy adapting to the environment and preparing for
things to come.
The need for emotional "space" this year is evident. You are emotionally curious and somewhat
detached. Your emotional reactions this year may be quirky, but you are not ruled by your emotions
as much as other years. New friendships or group activity, or changes in these areas, may be part of
An emphasis on communication, learning, and making contacts is indicated with the moon in the third
house. In terms of emotional orientation, this position can go one of two ways: you more easily give
voice to your feelings or tend to rationalize your emotions to the point of not really knowing your
heart's desires. There are likely to be frequent short trips, errands, visits, phone calls, and
communications in the year ahead. You are likely to be "on the go".
In the 3rd house, it suggests that emotional influences compete or join with rational thoughts for
decision-making power. The interplay between conscious and unconscious levels of thought is the key
to the pattern of growth. Depending on conscious level too much can be you trying to suppress or
analyze your feelings before they are apparent. Doing this will not work because feelings just are. You
must appreciate them as they exist. You possibly may feel more ruled by your unconscious urges
more than clear-headedness. Feelings can overwhelm your common sense and explode when you
least expect – like Freudian slips and saying things that were better left unsaid. The comments
honestly show what you feel, but they may go too far and reveal more than what is best for you and
Aspects to the moon can imply that emotional expression is either enhanced or inhibited by various
personality factors and situations. The planets making the aspect effect the interpretation.
MOON SQUARE VENUS
This aspect is not explicitly problematic, although there are issues. You feel a lot of desire this year.
Your passions are aroused in all areas -- sensuality, food, comfort, pleasure, material goods, and so
forth. Sometimes, a desire to create a family is strong. This aspect shows up frequently in years when
a woman becomes pregnant. Generally, there is more social activity, and your sensuality is strong this
year. You look to satisfy your "sweet tooth" for pleasure. Your urge for affection may be
temperamental, but insistent when active.
Emotional security and domestic issues are tied to financial considerations and situation – can be
affected positively or negatively (maybe negative because it’s a tense square). If you are planning on
pursuing and emotionally fulfilling goal, you will have to consider your financial situation before
making any changes. Whether the goal is feasible or not depends on how much you have saved. You
may have to compromise your present income and take a pay cut to enter a more rewarding field.
Ultimately, your salary will increase if you are successful in your new endeavors. Financial stability is
affected by domestic conditions. This can be a time of financial dependence on others.
MOON SQUARE MARS
This can bring confrontations and moments of emotional anger. This is largely because you are far
from indifferent on an emotional level this year. Your passions are aroused and it is hard for you to
step back and objectively review any given situation. You can be emotionally impulsive during this
period of your life, and your hunger for new experiences can reveal itself in restlessness and/or
Involvement in a situation that is emotionally uncomfortable yet rewarding, a mixed blessing, can
happen with this aspect. You can be working at cross-purposes, causing ambivalent feelings about
circumstances. This suggests contradictory emotions. The mixed feelings call into attention your own
emotional needs (Moon) and the taking of appropriate action accordingly (Mars). Emotional situations
are not simple and usually involve a strange combination of contradictory emotions. You may act in a
way that detracts from your own sense of security and well-being, thereby creating your stress. It
could be work related or social activism – you are motivated to act because you are affected
emotionally by what you see.
MN SEXTILE JUPITER
This shows your emotional growth being tied to your ability to express your feelings within a
significant relationship; in turn you will have growth of the relationship. Once you understand the
emotions, process, and share them you can grow from the interchange. A problem expressing your
feelings causes emotional stagnation and strain in your relationships.
The barriers to expressing your feelings can be real or imagined. It’s important to break through these
barriers if you wish to achieve emotional growth. The sextile brings opportunity for openness. The
growth can come by overcoming barriers or creating rewarding opportunities.
Sometimes this aspect can imply overwhelming emotions. Your perceptions can be distorted if you
keep your feelings isolated. It’s important to show cheerful emotions as well as serious.
MN TRINE SATURN
This aspect is indicative or emotional control. You can work at projects despite any emotional strain.
Your commitments are taken seriously and your feelings and behavior will be restricted and
suppressed to get the job finished. Responsibility is placed above any emotional expression.
At this time you feel that you can only depend on yourself and take responsibility for yourself. You
have to make decisions that affect you emotionally and your future sense of fulfillment. These
decisions may have to be made alone if others aren’t involved, supportive, or interested. You may feel
lonely, but must depend on yourself and resources.
These decisions can only be made after careful consideration and can be associated with sadness or a
stark realization, with emotional implications. You’ll have to give something up in order to get
something else. Your options could be limited and you’ll have to choose something over another. You
may have to wait for something or settle for the other, but in the long run, the delay could be of great
MN SEXTILE URANUS
Commonly, this aspect can indicate moving from one home to another, but more generally when they
are conjunct, square, or opposing. Or you could help someone move in or out of your own home.
Change and disruption of the home is typical. Relationships can also change, you could possibly be
involved in a new relationship, or a current one will be going through a period of transition or
Strong attractions are possible at this time, but not common since the 5th house is not involved. If you
are in an emotional rut there can be changes. The changes are a result of your internal restlessness. If
your situation and emotional needs change, you will be faced with new issues and problems, and be
required to develop new ways of expressing your emotions. This is a way to break inhibitions. Being
involved with new situations will help your ability or inability to handle your emotions and relationships
positively. This usually can indicate erratic and difficult feelings, but with the trine to Saturn this can
SLAR RETURN ASCENDANT
ASCENDANT IN SCRPI
This will be a year of internal regeneration. You will be prompted to go within to confront your most
profound feelings and your deepest inner self, which always produces tension until you are ready to
come to terms with yourself. Your attitude will be very confrontational and authoritative. You should
be aware of how you handle yourself and maintain control. This year you will be tested. You can
expect to encounter certain adversaries and opposition. You will be dealing with the results of your
past actions. If what you have sown is positive, then what you reap will be the same. Very possibly,
you will not be aware of your past errors. You could, therefore, experience some types of restrictions
or problems during this period. For example, you may not have taken something that deserved more
attention seriously enough. Or you may have neglected to act on an issue that could been turned in
your favor later on. Or you may have acted too aggressively in some situation.
Don't let negative emotions like anger, bitterness, jealousy, hate and vengeance control you. This
makes it more difficult to deal with matters successfully. It will be a year to work on those emotions
and undo the blockages that have stood in your way too long. It will not be an easy task, but it is
certainly not impossible either.
In general, the obstacles that seem to come during this period will be due to many unexpected things
occurring one after another which will tax your patience greatly. However, you will find the necessary
strength to deal with them.
If you are naturally calm and easygoing, you will find yourself being more demanding and explosive. If
you already have an aggressive and demanding personality, you should search for positive ways to
use this energy in order to avoid problems. In either situation, it would be advisable to engage in
some physical activity during this year such as walking, gymnastics or sports. This will help you to
relax and get a restful night's sleep.
Some type of psychological counseling or therapy should prove to be extremely beneficial during this
On the other hand, you will become more intuitive and your interest in extrasensory perception and
the paranormal will be increased. Trust your impressions and perceptions because they will
undoubtedly be quite accurate.
You may also be dealing with money matters, mostly concerning the possessions and finances of
others. At this time you have a good chance of receiving money through inheritance or legal
judgments in your favor.
Physically, you could be subject to sexual infections or inflammations during this time. In women, this
influence affects your fertility and can sometimes result in unwanted pregnancies.
You may be involved in an intense, or even tragic, romance. There could be jealousy and scandal
involved. However, it is also possible to establish lasting, stable relationships by expending a little
effort. You might be attracted to the sensuality of a romantic Taurus. Your sex life will be very intense.
SOLAR RETURN ASCENDANT IN NATAL 1ST HOUSE
You will feel confident and on solid ground in making your decisions. You will use your free will, and
you will be very much aware of opportunities that come along. It will be a year of adjustment to your
true and basic interests. You will be interested in developing your whole personality, including your
physical body and the characteristics of your temperament. This influence reaffirms the power of your
ego and increases your self-respect and vanity. The degree of your success will depend entirely on
your own effort and initiative.
(all planets and aspects are included in the actual report)
MERCURY IN 10TH HOUSE
Mercury in the 10th house is associated with decisions that will channel the direction of your life over
the next few years. During the year, you will be asked to make choices that will affect your
immediate and distant future. Decisions may be career-related and directly involve present job or
professional goals. You might decide to attend school or take a refresher course. On-the-job training
and work-related travel are also a possibility. On the other hand, decisions might pertain to major life
transitions without an emphasis on career. Important decisions such as marriage, leaving home or
moving to another country can be indicated by Mercury in 10th. People who decide to change their life-
styles totally can have this placement.
Professionally, this can be a good time to communicate with your superiors. Networking can further
your advancement. Make business connections now and plan for future career developments. You may
have ideas that would improve business or streamline office procedure. These creative ideas can play
a crucial role in career developments over the next year. If you are already in a position of authority
or willing to accept more responsibility, you might be asked to play a greater role in the decision-
making process at your place of employment. If you are not in a position to change office routines
where necessary, work may become more tedious. Tasks may be predominantly detail-oriented or
repetitive and involve a great deal of paperwork.
