Hi, Robert one question. I wonder if agree or disagree with the following.

Precessing a solar return. Is it worth it or is it valuable? Or is it necessary.

Does it make a difference?



Thanks Robert!

So if I want to chart my solar return, I enter my natal birt details ( date & time ) but just make the location where I live now instead of where I was born.

Is this right??

Thanks! Holo

Solar returns, i have no idea about it. can you tell me what can we do with these things. It's a lot.


A Mercury Rx on the solar return can indeed flavor a year in the life?

I really like what you wrote about externals and choice. Something wasn't quite resonating with that mirror game theory that I considered.


Hi Micheline - I never "precess" a Solar Return, though being a snapshot of a transiting moment, in the separating aspects you can see what's shaped that moment. And the point of doing them Equal House is that you then can approximate the 12 houses for the subsequent 12 months. There is no universal agreement whether you measure clockwise or counterclockwise or even where you begin.

Hi Holo - You're welcome. Actually, you need a program to compute the exact moment the Sun returns to its exact natal position for wherever you are. You need a birth chart to know the exact position of your Sun, but you cannot simply enter the birth info for this year wherever you are, since the Sun's position will be different each year.

Hi khach san sai gon - I deleted your links to ads, since you didn't clear it with me first. If you really care about the Solar Return, read the articles I've written since they explain how it's a snapshot of your year ahead. And of course, it's an entirely different way of seeing things than the current Year of the Silver Cat.

Hi caliban - Yes, it would show that elements ruled by Mercury will be seen in a new light, or past Mercury ruled people, ideas, and experiences will come back up and be understood in a different way, or they will remind you of what you once learned and now need to remember. And yes, external realities and learning what power we do and do not have regarding forms of matter teach us the truths contained in the Serenity Prayer.


Thanks Robert, I was a bit concerned about it, but it's not the first time in my life, and hey, I'm still here. Acknowleging it and being aware of it, is a truly amazing process. It is playing out in a most helpful way for me, in this year of uranus trining uranus.


Hi Robert - Two solar return questions:

1) While the meditation should at least span 15 minutes before through 15 minutes after the exact event, is it important to remain in the general area/neighborhood/city for a certain period?

2) When constructing a solar return with equal houses, the actual MC may not be the 10th house cusp. In this case, do planets on the 10th house cusp become more "elevated" - and are planets conjunct the MC (wherever it may be) still take on special importance?

As always - thank you for your insights!


Hi Matt - Good questions. First question, no. Remember that a moment only occurs wherever one is. So as long as we are in a specific location at the exact moment, that's enough.

Second question, yes to both. Among influences to examine are: the ruler of the natal ___ house in the SR 10th v 9th (elevated in both cases), and whether the same elevated planet is or is not conj the SR MC in the house where they both fall, and of course, where the SR 10th & MC would fall in the natal chart.

On a related note, usually the SR MC is either in the 9th or 10th (except for extreme latitudes) which always intrigued me. There hasn't really been any research that I know of regarding the differences in the MC position in SR charts.

I would think that since the 9th prepares the 10th, and the 10th confirms the 9th, that our "flowering" that the MC represents could manifest as preparatory for our next "public display," or solidify as a form of a truth or future we've been pursuing. Perhaps one position is more philosophical or Cadent, the other more actional/self-organizing or Angular. Again, fairly important distinctions, given the yearly pulses of our life the SR chart represents.


Robert - wow - such expeditious (and as always, great) responses! Thank you.


Wish I'd read this before my birthday this year. Will definately perform this meditation next year.
Speaking of meditation ... I'm going back to it, haven't done it consistently for the last sixteen years. Only did it for a few years, hit and miss. Always made me feel better, "cleaning out the attic."
What books would you recommend on the subject? Wayne Dyer has written a bunch. Do you prefer others?
Thanks in advance for your input.
