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 Virgo :

      USE YOUR MIND TO WRITE AND TEACH
       STOP JUDGING PEOPLE'S IMPERFECTIONS. IF GOD DOESN'T,
       HOW CAN YOU?

    You are a true thinker by nature and have a very active, perhaps overactive mind this year and will become a "nervous nelly" worrying about anything, anytime, anyplace. You are somewhat self centered though, and it would not be wise to be criticizing your fellow man. Expect to be very restless, and need to always be on the go, exploring something new.

    Stop looking for the flaws in everything you do, just because you are a perfectionist doesn't mean you cannot lighten up some. Before you dismiss any project as one that you couldn't possibly do, give it a try, you'll never know until you can do as a team.

    You are tranquil and shy and are most content when you are working in the background of any organization rather than on the firing line. Because of this you would excel in any area where details need to be finished up. Jobs that would bore other people to death are fine with you, just as long as you can work in peace.

    You will be seeking perfection in everything that you do this year, finding it more difficult to accept people as they are. Affection shown to others will be more inhibited especially in public, but sensual and sexual privately. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, planet of communication and mental  processes, and every effort should be made to stay away from gossip as well as a need to talk, constantly! Ideas and projects will take up a great deal of your time, and you will be like a sponge absorbing information from every area of your life. Business wise you may be more involved in selling, travelling or negotiating for others. Health wise, respiratory illnesses, allergies and nervous conditions are your most vulnerable points this year.

    One drawback to this placement of Virgo is your ability to be pleased by other people or simply please others. Why? Because your standards are naturally so high, people miss the mark, because they have no idea what to shoot for, or how. You can also be a slight pain in the butt this year when it comes to your choice of friends, clothing and especially food!

    Any situation that involves quick responses will not find  you around in close proximity, because you approach everything cautiously while estimating any dangers involved or benefits that can be gained. Once you have evaluated it carefully and it is deemed reliable, you will then proceed. This is one of the reasons you don't fall into the abyss of despair.

    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, as 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. You are not overly determined, but if something crosses your path that prompts your curiosity, all the better. Look to the house where MERCURY is located to see what your are apt to be THINKING about this year.

            Ascendant is in Virgo, Capricorn Decanate

    Ruled by the planet Saturn,  you are practical and business oriented. You may find a career in the teaching profession very rewarding, but be careful of a selfish streak that can manifest. Negative thought patterns and depression naturally go along with this placement, but patience can prove to be an asset. Saturn causes you to be overcautious which can restrict your life in general.

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 Gemini:

    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 include many ideas going at the same time. The only problem is determining what stage your projects are at, what pile you put them in, or what day it is. Otherwise you are sharp as a tack. Your mind is quick, alive, alert and inquisitive. You have the ability to absorb and learn very rapidly, but you get bored just as easily. The mind can become so scattered at times that you may forget where you are, or why. As long as anyone can keep your mind stimulated for more than an hour or so, they will have your complete although somewhat divided attention. People who are serious about life may not understand or appreciate your carefree nature. You possess a wonderful sense of humor and make a fascinating conversationalist.

    Gemini here this year wants to get thoughts and ideas across to the public, or an interest in more than one career. Communication, expressing yourself in public and dealing with the father or authority figures can be difficult for you now.

    Your approach to people and situations stems from the mental plane, and any decisions in your life about love, domestic matters, business or social situations will be met with rational thought rather than emotional responses.

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.

Libra on 2nd cusp:

     With Libra on the cusp of the second house, there is more of an emphasis on material affairs. Libra suggests the accumulation of money and possessions is dependent on ventures with a partner, normally the marriage partner. There is a love of luxury with Venus here, and a willingness to spend for pleasures and social activities. You will buy items made of the highest quality and finest workmanship. Most of the time you are more frugal and won't  waste anything. You will excel at making the check book work out right, balancing the books, and make to save a good amount of your check for that special purchase. Make sure to look at the house that Venus is located in to find out where money can be found in your lives.

Scorpio on 3rd cusp:

     With Scorpio on the cusp of the third house of communication and learning, you have some very fixed ideas and attitudes toward matters of communication, the thought process and learning. You have an obsessive quest and thirst for knowledge, and once you have learned it, it will not be forgotten. You have very fixed opinions about everything, and you can be quite critical of people who don't see things your way. Not only can there be friction domestically because of this, but with family, friends, neighbors and the public. Demanding anything is not the way to go to win people over to your side, but I doubt that with Scorpio/Mars/Pluto here, you really care. Since Scorpio is the sign of secrets, you can easily keep secrets from yourself, family, friends and neighbors. Look to the house where Mars/Pluto reside, to see where your interests can be found.

Sagittarius on 4th cusp:

     With Sagittarius on the fourth house of the home, family, roots, real estate, property and security,  you will want to have a firm hand on controlling the family environment. With Sagittarius here, there is a strong desire for a roomy and spacious home, a place that naturally draws good luck and good fortune to it. The home may be located in a foreign country or foreign to the environment you grew up in. Since Sagittarius relates to spiritual and religious issues, you may use the home as a place of meditation or group meetings. Look to the house where Jupiter is located to see where your home security can be found.

Capricorn on 5th cusp:

    You have Capricorn on the fifth house of Children, recreation, romance and creativity, artistic abilities, hobbies, writing books (creatively), speculation and investments. You are more practical and a hard worker, concerned with and good with details of all kind. Everything you do is planned out in great detail, and in rearing children you can be a tough disciplinarian. In your romantic area, passion is cool, calm, restricted or non-existent. this year you are highly sexed, but unable to show it. Obligations to children will be very strong, and they will be put in front of any needs you may have personally. In the area of speculation, you don't! In investments you will stay within guidelines that help you prepare for a secure future. You may be happiest working full time, and taking your job on vacation with you, and will accumulated as much wealth as possible rather than wasting it. Look to the house where Saturn is located to see where you might find your recreation and romance potential.

Aquarius on 6th cusp:

     You have Aquarius 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 need an adventure or something totally unique in work, service and health. New age revelations, science, breakthroughs in technology, computers, music and a laid back atmosphere. You make great friends to co-workers, remaining a bit cool and detached, working your best within the structure of groups. Your nerves and nervous system are a bit fragile and need special attention. Look to the house where Uranus is located to see where you might find work or service to others.

Pisces 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 Pisces located here. You may experience difficulties in relationships because you will not find relating to people an easy thing to do. In a lot of instances where Pisces is on the seventh house, a single lifestyle is more accommodating for you. Many sacrifices will be made in the area of relationships, and seeing it with clear vision will be difficult. You may  have difficulties in getting involved because of the real or imagined let downs that relationships can sometimes bring with them. Look to the house that contains Neptune to see how you will deal with partnerships.

Aries 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. Aries will have an influence on the above matters by bringing disagreements and arguments about how money should be spent, and what it should be spent on. You will hold strongly to what you believe in, which is going to make it difficult making monthly payments on anything. Should any money come in from wills and legacies, there will be disputes about them as well. The physical side of  relationships will be very hot, hot, hot, aggressive and maybe too physical!  Look to see which house Mars is located in, to see where your joint money can be found.

Taurus 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 Taurus ruling the ninth house, you will stick more with traditional values in religious matters than going off in new age directions. Teaching of these values can give an additional indication of where you can be effective. With Venus being the ruler of the ninth house, travel, pleasures, relaxation, enjoyment and education is the theme of this timeframe. You may live a great distance from your native homes or think about moving. Look to the house where Venus is located to see where your interests in higher aspirations can be found.

Cancer 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 Cancer located in the eleventh house, the focus turns to social activities, informal in nature centered around the home. Small animals and pets will be very important to you, and can work with organizations that support animals, children or underprivileged. You will be very protective and nurturing towards others in your immediate environment and to the friends that you associate with. Look to the house where the Moon is located to see where you might find your friends, associations and group involvements and interests.

Leo 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. Leo energy on the twelfth house  indicates that you operate life from behind the scenes, the power behind the throne. It takes the dominating side of Leo, and represses it. With Leo here, you will spend a great deal of time by yourself. Look to the house where the Sun is located to find that area in which you retire from public view.

The Sun

The placement of the Sun in the solar return chart is very important and affects almost every area of your life!

Sun in 2nd house:

    The Solar Sun is now in your 2nd 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.

    Money matters, enjoyment of what you have accrued materially, resources, relationships (Looked upon as things you own), showing off for others in a material way, pleasures, amusement and financial speculation are highlighted by the Solar Sun this year.

    Paying outstanding bills, taxes or loans are also 2nd house matters. Raises in pay and increased sales can occur as well. Items purchased on credit increase. Look at the aspects to the Solar Sun this year to see what you can accomplish.

Sun conjunction Mercury:

    Major good news can easily arrive that puts a smile on your face this year and sheer will power will override intellectual considerations that will aid you in completing tasks. Get togethers can spark some very meaningful discussions that will be remembered for the rest of the year.

    Take a look at your life, what you've done, where you have been and where you are going and make the appropriate changes if necessary. Fresh and new ideas for creative endeavors can surface.

    This is one of those years where you can be close and intimate with others without feeling vulnerable. Do your own thing in life this year rather than what others expect you to do. Should you be lacking in self confidence this year will give you a shot in the shorts to come alive again in the world. You will probably make more short trips around town than usual this year as well.

Sun square 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 sextile Pluto:

    Intense and powerful experiences will change your viewpoint in wonderful ways this year. Investigation and study the unknown, or unchartered territories is favored. Make favorable impressions on others this year if you have the need. A great aspect for getting things accomplished, so be a positive force in the world. Do something creative and constructive for the masses. You may find some real bargains at a thrift shop that can save you some money. Potent creativity is yours for the asking this year and should be cultivated and released.

    Benefits can come to you through Taxes, insurance, new businesses, scientific endeavors and the workplace. The intuition is strong and clairvoyant faculties can manifest themselves.

Sun semisquare Asc.:

    Problems can arise in romance or marriage. Conflicts of the ego are the main source of disagreements. Each person thinks it will be too macho to give in rather than facing up to who we really are inside. Your self image is apt to be a bit out of whack with reality, and people working at cross purposes to one another does not make communications easy. Perhaps it would be better for you to be alone with no one to bother you.

Sun sesquiquadrate MC:

    An active time filled with hard work, accomplishments and enlightenment. Ego conflicts with authority and family are likely to occur. Don't let it get out of hand. Responsibilities in your domestic and work environment are likely to increase. Family problems can arise to be dealt with.

The Moon

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 5th house:

    The Solar Moon is now in your 5th house. The Solar Moon rules your emotional needs and the specific houses show where your needs will lie and be met this year.  The Moon shows where significant changes will take place during the year, and where relationships are formed.

    Now that the Solar Moon has touched our pleasurable and sensual side we might get a sudden desire to see a movie, take in a play or become dramatic in our emotional expression. Romance is surely in the air and we will be feeling VERY amorous whether in a relationship or indulging in a passing whimsy. Great enjoyment can be felt while being with others and the good times that go along with it.

    Since children are also a fifth house matter we may be more concerned with their lives and be a lot more protective of them this year, or there can be upsetting conditions around children and their welfare which we can react to very strongly and emotionally.

    Make sure your love is overprotective and not overpossessive. If the Solar Moon receives stressful aspects while in the fifth house, there can be money wasted on the pursuit of happiness.

Moon trine 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 year.

    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 Jupiter:

    This year brings with it the consumption of food that is too rich for your body to handle. A new relationship can enter your life that can develop into real love. The ability to deal with the masses or groups of people exists for you at this time. Increased financial prospects look good especially if other factors support it. Jupiter has a tendency to expand the feelings and women that you are involved with can help your current situation and be compassionate to your cause.

Moon conjunction Neptune:

    Inspiration and sensitivity are strong this year, but your self expression could be clouded by delusion. Relations will be very tricky and unclear and misconceptions and misinterpretations of the intentions of others are highlighted. Avoid negative people.

Moon quincunx Asc.:

    Emotional difficulties in self expression and dealing with others in your environment exists, especially where women and domestic areas are concerned.

Moon trine MC:

    Meeting new women in your environment can have a very positive effect on you this year and success will be found dealing with the public. You have the ability to make changes in your life at this time, should you have the desire to do so.

Mercury

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 2nd house:

    Mercury is in your 2nd 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 be focused.

    Business transactions, gathering information, discussions and negotiations about money matters, short trips for business purposes, planning and discussions with others about money or possessions are highlighted. Checks can arrive in the mail that is bound to put a smile on your face. News of future promotions or financial gains is possible as well. New ideas can be incorporated for earning more money. If Mercury is harshly aspected while in the 2nd house, you may be bound up with financial worries or make changes in your financial outlook. Agreements and contracts involving business can be stressed as well.

Mercury Semisextile Saturn:

    Common sense is the rule to follow for success and seek advice from those people whom you respect. This is also an excellent time for seeking the advice from a doctor for the correct diagnosis. Saying the right thing can make a great impression on people this year so choose your words well or rehearse them in your mind just before you speak. Shop for practical and long lasting items because this is a favorable time for it.

    The ability to find the right words for any situation is with you this year, and problem solving should be a breeze. This is also a good time for writing and research.

    Your education may become very important to you this year, or if you are so inclined, marriage plans or engagement plans can be entered into or discussed. Household repairs should be considered during this favorable phase as well. Cooperation can be best obtained by working in cooperation with others.

Mercury trine Neptune:

    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 sextile Pluto:

    This is a very Spiritually attuned time in which new insights can be gained into the world. Your thinking may be off in the edges of "outer space" somewhere this year, so wait until you come back to earth to make decisions. Recreational clubs and activities can flourish and the potential for writing or speaking to others is very favorable.

    Be on the alert for positive trends in business and finance, you may be able to take advantage of it for your own personal use. The accuracy of interpretations and personal insights are profound. Paying attention to details can uncover some wonderful facets of your life, so practice positive thinking for mental stability. Your perceptions are right on target, so make sure to pay attention to your own little voice. Be flexible and willing to bend when dealing with others. You possess the ability to comfort others in their time of need.

    Courage is abundant to face the future and any dealings and communications with other people is favored. You can act as a mediator for people experiencing conflicts, or go over your personal finances and make the necessary changes. Advise and council others if you are asked.

Mercury square Node:

    Communications and ideas are out of sync with the rest of the world at this time. Socializing may be non existent or very difficult, so it would be best to leave it alone for now. This is not a favorable time for dealing with the public, media relations or advertising.

    Problems with the nervous system can develop, so make sure to add some physical exercise to your daily routine to stay in shape. The negative side is disruptions in relationships, gossiping, being unpleasant or totally unsociable.

Venus

The placement of Venus in the solar return chart affects romance and friendship over the coming year.

Solar Return Venus in 2nd house:

    Venus is in your 2nd house this year. Venus is the Goddess 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.

    Financial opportunities and extravagances can occur this year. Care is advised in spending and borrowing money. Investments, banking and planning future security through IRA's etc. is favored. Dealings with the female sex and the public can bring you opportunities and gains and borrowing money becomes easier now. Rewards can be received for favors or services performed for others. If Venus makes a harsh aspect while in the 2nd house, there will be a strong desire for material objects and an increase of sexuality (as a possession) can occur.

Venus trine Jupiter:

    A strong attraction to all things that are beautiful exists this year. Take someone out to a candlelight dinner, or if you are an artist or compose or play music, this can be a very creative and inspiring time for you. Long distance journeys and dealing with people at a distance is highly favored and the ideals of people around you will be easier to understand. The sharing of philosophies of others is favored.

    You are in a very content state of mind, and favors business, finance, foreign investments, medicine and law. Legal matters decided this year will work out quite well and new friendships can be stimulating and wonderful. Rest and recuperate rather than work if you can, as this is a rather lazy time.

Venus trine MC:

    This is not a year to be alone, so go to the park and introduce yourself to someone new. Be with friends and loved ones if you can, you will both enjoy and grow from the experience.

Mars

The placement of Mars in the solar return chart affects your drive, ambition, and vitality during the coming year.

Solar Return Mars in 11th house:

    Mars is in your 11th 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.

    The pursuit of goals, activities with groups of people, and efforts requiring team efforts are highlighted. A productive and physically active time when humanitarian goals will prosper. Tolerances for old friends will be very low and resentments can occur if Mars forms harsh aspects, friends may take unnecessary and dangerous risks and in extreme instances feel a need to reform the world by whatever means necessary.

Mars SemiSquare 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 no gossiping.

Jupiter

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 5th house:

    Jupiter is in your 5th 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 teaching.

    Creativity comes alive, relationships improve, new sexual can relationships begin, improved relations with your children, meeting people from different backgrounds, increased social activities and pleasure travel are highlighted. Women desiring to become pregnant can do so this year. If Jupiter makes a difficult aspect while in the 5th house, then the pursuit of pleasure and investments will be way out of control!

Jupiter conjunction Neptune:

    This year will heighten your sensitivities to food, drink, drugs or any kind of smoking utensil. All of the senses are alive in this regard and overindulgence in any or all of them is possible. There can be a greater sympathy for people who are disadvantaged in some way, (as you will have greater contact with them) and this is an excellent position for promoting good feelings in relationships. You will be feeling a greater "oneness" with others in relationships and be more willing to overlook the faults they possess. This is a fortunate time for forgiveness in relationships as well.

    Your heart will go out to people who are in pain either physically, emotionally or intellectually and you will render your time and support to ease it. On the other hand, you can easily make money through fields directly related to the misfortunes of others. Should this be the case, take some of the money you earn and turn it back to the masses through humanitarian efforts (food for the homeless) or charities which provide services for the unfortunate. In this way, you "give" back something to people you have made money from bringing the entire process full circle, with the end result in bringing further blessings to yourself.

    Long Journeys will occur rather than short ones and are favored, and will probably take place over water or near water. Many experiences may occur in a limited amount of time that defy any rational explanation, but caution must be observed because what seems "real" isn't at this time.

    The danger is financial ruin due to over spending, swindling others or being swindled yourself, so watch your purse and wallet.

Jupiter SemiSquare Pluto:

    Whatever you do keep your motives, intentions and dealings with others honest, above board and on the right side of the law this year. You may burn bridges to your past in favor of the future and new beginnings. There will be an overwhelming need for power over others, just be careful that you don't use people for your own purposes and then discard them. You will notice that you pick up some very bad eating habits as well. Jealousy is a danger with this placement.

    Reforming others comes under the gun of influences as well, so be careful of who you are trying to reform as well as your motives for doing so.. Even though you aren't the authority here, that won't stop you from thinking you are. Expect very radical changes in thinking and attitudes which may have you a bit baffled as well as those around you. Other conflicts will be seen in litigation, joint finances, insurance, taxes and alimony. In your work practices, make sure to take care of all the little details and be especially careful not to overlook anything, because missing the finer points of any project can be your downfall.

Jupiter Quincunx Asc.:

    You can be somewhat GULLIBLE this year, accepting the words of others at face value. You will be unable to accurately read the intentions of people even though they "appear" to be well meaning. There will be a GREAT INCREASE IN YOUR SOCIAL life, as well as an attraction to alcohol and drugs. Any news that you hear about someone can be the result of "GOSSIP" and should be taken lightly until it can be verified, and not repeated anyway.

    Review your present relationship, chances are you have taken it for granted and modifications need to be made. Don't make promises this year because they will be very difficult to keep for one reason or another, no matter how sincere your intentions are. Excessive debts and expenses can pop up on you and tie you down, and in the area of religion, education and cultural matters, you may find people at odds with your thoughts or beliefs.

    You have taken on way to much work this year, how are you going to do it all? Are you the type of person who has 10 jobs started and is going to finish them all but never does?  Be careful of friends whose only purpose is to use you for their own benefit and dump you afterwards. Hey, I never said it was going to be fair! You will meet people on a daily basis who will be in opposition to your great ideas. The problem is that you are trying to be someone special at a time when a more humble approach should be adhered to.

Jupiter trine MC:

    This year will be a very successful time for your career and there will be a strong need to expand your social life, become more active in sports or include more travel, perhaps connected with your job.

    Business expansion is favored this year, and self confidence can be a real asset to you. Others may look to you as a leader for their causes.

    Financial gains are likely and you are not likely to squander it on useless items. This is an  excellent time for buying or improving your home and also favors politics, publishing, teaching, lecturing, religion and law. Support can come from people in authority or somehow connected with the government.

Saturn

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 1st house:

    Saturn is in your 1st 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.

    This is a year for Maturity, when life becomes much more serious and you become self conscious and perhaps insecure. You are very self critical and your vitality will be low and heavy responsibilities and accomplishments are to be expected. Do not engage in long range projects this year, as you will be withdrawn and tired, wondering who you really are inside. An excellent influence for losing weight because of loss of appetite. At the same time the digestive process is slowed down and you will have to increase your fiber intake. If Saturn makes a difficult aspect while in the 1st house, there can be ill health or a lack of confidence.

Saturn square Pluto:

    Life cannot go on the same way it has been now can it? Changes are coming into your life and demanding that you pay attention. There will be a loss of feelings within relationships and a decrease of the sexual drive. You may feel the need to take back a commitment made to another, becoming more rigid in the process and there will also be an unwillingness to share within the relationship. You may notice some pain or discomfort in the joints.

    The conditions in your life just aren't good enough any more. Power struggles are likely with this influence, so try to avoid being the dictator especially this year.

    Matters of sexuality and feeling "betrayed" and not needed by another are real issues to be dealt with, and if matters are "pushed" and not left alone to cool down, or the relationship is not strong enough to endure the hurt that accompanies it, then separations can occur. This will be a test of the strength and the validity of the relationship.

    People can suddenly disappear during the exact time of this influence almost like they never existed. You can look at others for the first time in a very different way and decide you don't like them very much, or who they have become, all the while pretending to be a friend. your life. Anybody can be dishonest and you won't have far to look to find it. Sympathy for others will not be present and avoid corruption and dishonesty in business.

    Sexual problems can pop up this year, but they are temporary though so don't panic. On the other hand you may be very uninterested in any sexual involvement and STRESS is a key word now,  see if you can eliminate the excesses of it somehow.

Saturn trine Node:

    This is an auspicious time to find the support that you need from others. Permanent alliances can be formed with others bringing positive influences to you. This is a wonderful time to turn over a new leaf and become a more positive person.

    Any new relationships that begin this year will have a very strong "soul connection" quality to it and this is a very favorable time for making permanent connections and plans for the future together.

    Security may be a very important social issue for you at this time, or you may be involved in security systems or fads that are popular.

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 7th house:

    Uranus is in your 7th 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 houses.

    Relationships, marriage and business relations can undergo sudden and unexpected changes and a need and desire for freedom can bring separations and divorce. Marriages entered into this year will be an error in judgement that can end just as suddenly. If Uranus makes a difficult aspect while in the 7th house, there can be changes and unstable situations that arise in marriages causing possible divorce. Relationships will be altered in business or close associations this year.

Uranus Semisextile Neptune:

    New age subjects will be very attractive to you during this year and a change of consciousness can bring with it a completely different way of looking at your way of existence.

    If you have been considering looking into metaphysical subjects, this would be an excellent time to do so. You can work very hard with others and gain great satisfaction from it. Gifts, Inheritances and inner spiritual growth are all possibilities with this year.

Uranus sextile 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.

Uranus opposition Asc.:

    You will find it hard to relate to others this year and people will have a difficult time getting to know the real you. You will find it difficult to take care of other peoples needs or show affection. Friendships are what you need now rather than intimate partners. You will also see that some added stress has entered your life to contend with as well.

    Expect upsets and emotional instability to enter your life and the element of surprise and unpredictability will arrive at your door. Your attitude may adopt a very detached characteristic.

    Relationships are very disruptive this year and sudden separations can occur because you are looking for freedom from oppressive situations.

    Friends will prove to be very unreliable and you will be very bored with routines. Do not speculate or experiment with the occult this year, as the timing is unfortunate.

Solar Return Neptune in 6th house:

    Neptune is in your 6th 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.

    Be careful on the work front as toxins can build up in the body causing illnesses and don't expect your labors to be appreciated by others. It is best to do for others rather than expect something in return and let that be your reward. Work and health matters are stimulated this year as well. If Neptune makes a difficult aspect while in the 6th house, you may be unemployed or work at a job that is displeasing to you. Illnesses will be difficult to diagnose and there will be a sensitivity to medications. The body will react rather adversely to any drugs or alcoholic abuse.

Neptune Semisextile Node:

    It will be easy to influence your friends and associates with the new ideas you have this year and in romantic situations, there will be a noticeable increase in affection and tenderness. Your relationships will have a strong sensation of a "soul connection".

    Carry out your plans in a more organized way rather than striving for new methods. Don't expect more than is humanly possible from others now, instead help others to reach their own potential.

Solar Return Pluto in 4th house:

    Pluto is in your 4th 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.

    Making repairs on your home are favored this year, so get rid of old thought patterns that keep you from growing. Changes on the domestic front can be expected and you may even decide to move this year. If Pluto makes a difficult aspect while in the 4th house, then there can be disrupted or become subject to upsets in the home that are out of your control.

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 3rd on solar Asc:

    With your Natal 3rd house on the Solar Ascendant, life will pick up and you can sell your ideas to the world or carry out your ideas into the active state. Communications can be in an aggressive manner that  may be regretted at some point. You may have more in common with or work more closely with your partners family, relatives and friends or run into relatives or close family members that are looking to quarrel or provoke you. Driving that borderlines on daredevil behavior, arguments, defying each other with your actions and words combined with lots of short distance travel highlight this timeframe.

Natal Asc in solar 11th house:

     With your Natal Ascendant now in the Solar 11th house, social and intellectual security takes on a greater prominence. You will look for acceptance from others in your environment as equals. The 11th house represents friends, social groups, and societies, and it also represents the affection that you need from others. Most importantly, it is where you as an individual fit this year.
