What is a Solar Return Chart?

A solar return chart is a chart erected for the time that the transiting Sun returns to the position of the natal Sun. Once every year the transiting Sun goes through the entire zodiac, every degree, minute, and second of each sign. When you are born, the Sun in your natal chart has a specific position in the zodiac. This position can be measured exactly. At some point in time during each subsequent year, the transiting Sun returns to this exact position, conjuncting your natal Sun. The date and time when the conjunction occurs down to the exact second of arc is the time of the solar return chart.

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

The zodiac signs on the Ascendant and Midheaven, 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.


You will do everything in grand style this year. There is nothing introverted in your life as you wander around through doing nothing special except "visiting" every place you can think of so others can see you, rather than you seeing them. You have many associates and acquaintances, but the chance of having real friends is questionable.

You like to keep communications light, non-threatening and casual rather than get involved in heavy discussions. You have a love of travel and you should feel that you have been born with roller skates on your feet so when you awake you can be on your way again. Philosophic thought and religious matters will have special importance in your life in some form. When pointing out your views to others, don't take the direct route but utilize a gentle approach so that people don't feel that they have just been steamrollered!

Energetic enthusiasm surrounds this whole year, but physical stamina is not at its strongest for this 12 month period. In fact, laziness can easily accompany this influence unless there is motivation to perform accompanying it. Routine and boring physical exercise is not your forte, even if you are on the move quite a bit. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, planet of inspiration, wisdom, good fortune, and abundance. Matters connected to philosophy, travel, spirituality, teaching, writing, publishing and research will be very strong for you this year. Sometimes this Ascendant can be so honest that you can be taken for being rude, and the negative side can be self indulgent, a bit pompous, gaining a great deal of weight, more dependent on substances and alcohol. On a more positive note, love of theater, dancing, sports, animals, travel and good food and drink will be more interesting to you this year this year.....

Ascendant in Sagittarius, Leo Decanate

Ruled by the Sun, you are kind and generous and can be of great benefit to society. You are more intuitive and can inspire others with your profound insights. You have a talent for coming up with unique ideas and you are enthusiastic in all that you do. One danger with this configuration is being a bit too bold and brave, you can use a dose of reality pumped in from time to time to keep you on track and down to earth.

Ruler of Ascendant in 12th house

With the Solar Ascendant Ruler in the Solar 12th house, the things that you must do daily to maintain a spiritual and soul identity become a strong focus. The 12th house is related to secret enemies and the unconscious, as well as service to others, behind the scenes activities, as well as your retired and private life.

Solar Return Midheaven Virgo

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 keep you very active, perhaps overactive. You are somewhat self centered, and it would not be wise to criticize your fellow man. You will acquire a restless nature and become super nervous.

With Virgo on the Midheaven this year you need to get your thoughts and ideas out to the public in some way now, perhaps as a teacher, writing speeches for others, in clerical ways or in the physical fitness fields. More meetings will take place in public now, or expressing your views through letters to a newspaper. You may decide that you want to start a new career or have two careers at the same time. On the negative side, you may find that dealing with people in authority or father figures will become much more difficult for you this year.

Your manners and mannerisms  are always correct and above board. Your quiet and unemotional viewpoint is immediately apparent because you do not spread sympathy and caring although you may be. You come across ready for business and display a conservative approach to everything and everybody. You will draw people to you who need honest assessments of situations or special advice. This is your area of expertise. You never miss anything that goes on in your environment whether at home or at the office and are always looking to learn something new....

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.

Capricorn on 2nd cusp

With Capricorn on the second house, prudence and practicality will prevail in the handling of money. In the event you acquire large sums of money, you will be very careful what you do with it, and how it is spent. It can come down to the fact that no matter how much money you have, you never, ever, have enough. Your purchases and investments will be conservative, and only those that give you the most and secure return for your money. You may decide to live a rather simple life, void of the luxuries and expensive taste of your neighbors. Look to the house that contains Saturn to see where your money will be made.

Aquarius on 3rd cusp

With Aquarius on the third house of communication and learning, you will share quite an inventive, original and creative outlook on life. Your communication can be very fixed and inflexible, but your thinking may be well ahead of its time, with perhaps radical overtones. New and different ideas can occur daily, pushing you to explore something new and untried. Your interest in learning is for the sake of knowledge, not for earning the almighty dollar, and passing what you have learned along to others. You need to give others breathing room, so that you can communicate more freely and spontaneously. Look to the house where Uranus is located to see where your interests can be found.

Pisces on 4th cusp

With Pisces on the fourth house of the home, family, roots, real estate, property and security,  you will have a strong emotional tie to the home and family unit. Pictures showing family history, and sentimental memorabilia will fill the home, and great sacrifices will be made for home, and family. Emotional upsets at home will not be appreciated as you need peace and seclusion to operate, and privacy will be especially important for. You will be extremely sensitive to not only the home, but the environment within the home because of the spiritual value of Neptune, ruler of Pisces here. For you, the home is a place that you can depend on for an escape from everyday life to slip into your own private world. Look to the house where Neptune is located to see where your home security can be found....

The Sun

Sun in 6th house:

Sun sextile Mars:

Self confidence and action color this year. Exercising is great for improving the health and vitality and romantic encounters are likely to have some "sparks" connected to them, especially if you have been separated from someone and new interests in each other need begin to grow. What a wonderful year for renewing your love for another person. Super amounts of positive energy to accomplish anything is with you now.

Any kind of physical work or exercise would have beneficial results during this year. This time frame favors understanding the right course to take in any situation and taking it. Get out there and accomplish something positive because your energy is increased during this year, so make sure to plan something constructive with it. Should you encounter any emergency situations, you will understand exactly what to do, with the reserve to keep on going in the face of adversity. You might enjoy working by yourself rather than with others....
