Solar Return in Astrology Overview and its Ascending Signs
The Solar Return Chart
The solar return chart is the result of calculating that exact moment each year the date and time when your natal sun returns to the exact point or position it occupied at birth in the natal chart and is set in the place where you currently live. It will set up the major focus for the entire year with a unique chart that reflects the next 12 month time frame.
Importance of Solar Returns Chart
Gaining popularity by leaps and bounds due to its uncanny ability to pinpoint likely life experiences, the importance of this kind of horoscope chart is unique only to the individual to whom it applies.
It is believed that the exact time of one's solar return is a sacred annual event for each individual. This is because it occurs only at one specific moment each year and it is at that moment and only that moment when the Earth/Sun relationship is exactly the same as when you were born. Because such a moment constitutes an "event" and in the same way as with all events; this one too had made the event as the basis for a horoscope of import.
Moreover, the quality of that "moment" that is the time of one's solar return will potentially become the "seed" of that annual cycle, which will be the basis for a horoscope that will describe the astrological factors in effect for that one-year cycle.
Solar returns charts can also be used to forecast the general outlook for the year ahead, and can be used as part of a whole spectrum of techniques that include transits, progressions, and directions.
It can also be used as a way to point out where the action is by its emphasis on certain houses and signs.
Solar Return Ascending Signs
During the time of your solar return, planets are positioned throughout the sky in a system known as "houses”, which are basically a 12-fold division of the sky as seen from the location of your solar return.
Each solar return has its own Ascendant sign which is usually different from the birth Ascendant of your natal chart.
Because the Ascendant in any chart depends on the clock time, this will make the time the Sun returns to the exact sign degrees as it was on the day you were born different each year.
The Solar Return Ascendant sign and its ruler will modify your natal Ascendant’s Sign coloring your personality, showing your overall temperament, attitude, and approach to life in the year ahead.
