happy solar return Robert! and keep up the good work! Namaste :)


Hi Robert, I wish you a happy solar return; enjoy!!


All the best Robert, happy birthday and solar return :)


My solar return this year has Venus exactly conjunct (down to the minute, 15 degrees 45 minutes) to my natal Sun. I am feeling it to be an auspicious day. A little concerned about the Moon-Pluto conjunction square Uranus but it seems a sign of the times. Maybe it depends on one's definition of auspicious?

Sophia Basta

Hi Robert having followed your thread and insights for a while now and having learned some valuable info. I'm quite delighted you touched on the subject of SR's. Now there seems to be some controversy over aimed SR's. Celeste Teal is strongly against it, she says that the moment you return to your place of residence the return for the place of residence takes over. She has set out to prove this using my SR chart for Aug.19 1997 where I spent my Birthday in Corfu Greece, compared to the one for Ottawa, Cananda where I reside. That year in Oct. I met a man from Buffalo N.Y. I won't go into details but it was a fairytale romance, we got engaged by Christmas and in Feb. 1998 went to Greece to celebrate Valentines. That evening Feb.14 he suddenly died of a massive heart attack. Celeste published both charts the SR for Greece and the SR for Ottawa Canada. The one for Ottawa where I reside tells the story. So I'm not sure about Aimed SR's. Like Celeste says you can run but you can't hide. I would be interested on your opinion and your thoughts since I am a student of Astrology and every bit of info. is valuable to me. Thank you.

Sophia Basta

P.S. Many Happy Returns


Hi all - Thanks for the wishes. Yes, "auspicious" is in the eye of the beholder. As for "aimed SR charts," I have found them completely accurate over the decades I've done them. The thing about SR charts is that we do not read them as we would a natal chart per se; we look at where our natal rulers of the various houses fall in the SR chart.

The SR chart is a frozen moment in time. We can only be where we are. I tend to progress according to natal birth place since they are symbolic measurements. I look at transits relative to where we are since that's a "real time" circumstance. The SR is a transit moment; that's why wherever our body and breath happen to be is where the chart is done. I have found that changing locations, and therefore changing the degrees on the angles and often the house positions, exactly indicates the experience of the year too many times to dismiss it simply because one astrologer asserts otherwise.

One conundrum to what Celeste asserts: I am doing my SR at my residence in NM; I am about to change residence to another state in the near future, but will be going back and forth between residences. I've always had two, and sometimes three residences simultaneously. Surely the picture (and therefore patterns) of a past frozen moment in time cannot miraculously shift simply because I change what state I happen to be in at any given moment. If so, then our life patterns and responses are entirely conditioned by where we are. I do not believe we are that influenced by outer conditions.

What is in the past and written is already part of frozen time; we cannot change the past simply by changing locations in the present. If we experienced the death of a loved one at a certain place and time, we do not change our orientation toward that death simply by moving to a different location, though that orientation will be modified over time due to our internal movement. We do take ourselves wherever we go. A point of resonance affects the pattern of consciousness; that impression doesn't change simply because we move from A to B after the imprint has occurred.

A logical corollary to her assertion would be that though your college graduation happened at a certain moment in Austin, Texas, that by moving to Los Angeles 25 years later it made the chart of the Austin experiences derived from that graduation irrelevant, and that a more important indicator would be a chart for graduating in LA. Or that a marriage initiated July 13, 2005 in Santa Monica would somehow change qualities to mirror those to where you moved days, months, or years later. That doesn't make sense.

Remember that a Solar Return is an inceptional chart. It is a chart for a specific event at a specific place in time. Those qualities are in that chart because it actually happened at that time. It didn't happen anywhere else. And to note, the SR is only one influence, and is heart centered. We also have Lunar returns, Mercury returns, Venus returns, and so on. I'm sure the death was clearly shown by other factors than just the moveable SR. Also look at the rulers of your 8th and 12th, since the 8th is the 4th from the 5th, and the 12th is the 8th from the 5th (The 5th rules love affairs.) Perhaps the previous returns of the planets ruling these houses would also show the death.

And now I'm off work!


Happy Birthday!
May the warm rays engulf you.
Many Blessings


Mucho Happy Solar Return Robert :-) Thanks for all you do & for being you ;-) Love & light to you & for you H


Feliz cumpleanos mi amigo, Roberto! Sending you plate loads of peace from a 1000 miles south.

Nancy R

Happy Birthday!


many happy retrns... and many more to come...
we all love yr wise coments and advice....


Do I understand correctly, you're talking about the 31st of March? If so, we share the same solar return! :)) Many, many happy returns Robert, thank you for everything you share!
I'd like to ask you something. As you may have noticed from your chart also (:D) I'm in the middle of a Pluto - Uranus transit to the Sun.
Add to that, a solar return Sun (in the 5th) square Moon (in Cancer, my natal ASC, in the 8th) square Pluto (in the 2nd). Yes, that also means Moon opposite Pluto. And Scorpio ascendant, just in case the message was not clear enough.
Now, I do have Pluto opposite the Sun natally, this energy is not new to me. But I do worry about the solar return Moon getting involved in all this... and would like to hear a word from you on what kind of outward manifestation these patterns might point to and, more importantly, how to work positively with all this intensity.
Have a great time today and always.
Love to you and Bernadette,


Happy Birthday Robert! Thank you for everything you are offering with so much love and heart!


Happy Birthday Robert! Blessings. Kati

Thank you kindly for the info. and your thoughts, it is much appreciated as I'm very open minded and like to get different opinions and methods, and knowledge before I draw conclusions. I try to gather as much knowledge as I can and then incorporate it into my studies. Since I have great respect for your insights and knowledge, I decided to take the chance to ask.
I thank you


Robert: A most wonderful Solar Return and Happy Birthday to you. It appears that La Luna is close to your natal ascendant, and in a waxing phase. Keyword for First Quarter moon is Action, but I suspect you are moving into the Gibbous phase, key word is Expression. So you are poised to have a more prominent voice in these turbulent times that are hard upon us. I am very grateful that you are taking this journey with us. Namaste. Hari Aum. Mitakuye Oyasin.

Healing Mudras

a friend of mine died 20 days before his solar return... but how do you actually calculate the timings? if born lets' say 2pm in Italy. how do you what time is your solar return? is it same time?


May the year ahead be filled with many blessings.
