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 Gemini :


You will need to have many ideas going at the same time. The only problem is determining what stage your projects are in, 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, especially when you are.

    You possess a wonderful sense of humor and make fascinating conversationalists. Do you feel that there are two separate entities here battling for domination? Do you talk with your hands?  Can you do several things at once while at the same?? You will notice yourself doing more of at this time! Marriage will be more difficult for you now, as your partners may need more passion and emotional personal attention than you are interested in giving. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, planet of communication, which means you are likely to be extremely talkative. You may find that there is more of an interest in teaching, writing, research, artistic endeavors and design, or negatively speaking can become a con artist. Health wise, your Lungs and Hands are your vulnerable points at this time, and respiratory difficulties and injuries to hands and fingers need to be guarded against 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. You have childlike and flirtatious mannerisms and approach life with a vigorous attitude.

    If  you are not kept busy, your mind can turn to gossip or idle chit chat about meaningless issues, just to keep the brain box active. You only move at one speed which is about 80 miles an hour, while remaining constantly in motion due to an inner restlessness that drives everyone around you crazy. Nervous conditions fire up your emotions bringing verbal attacks on others. The typical Gemini will always have a gallon of coffee nearby along with an ashtray filled with cigarettes. Does this sound like  you?? Your key phrase in life should be "I Know What I Want,.. . I think?" Exercise and extra care in diet will help to sooth those nervous episodes that pop up. If you weren't nervous before, this timeframe  will introduce you to it, big time! Look to the house where MERCURY is located to see where your thinking is apt to be at during this timeframe.

Ascendant is in Gemini, Aquarius Decanate

    Ruled by the planet Uranus, this is an excellent aspect for business, dealing with large corporations, science, or becoming the head of a big businesses. This position brings with it the real possibility of Genius qualities. Constant activity will keep you out of touch with what is happening in the world however.

Ruler of Ascendant in 1st house

    With the Ascendant Ruler in the Solar 1st house, your personal identity becomes more important. Questions of who am I, how do I fit in this world around me, and why am I in the circumstances that surround me is highlighted. How will I relate to the outside world, and how will people see me as an individual is a focal point in your life.

Solar Return MC Aquarius:

    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 exhibit a positive kind of temperament although somewhat uncertain about matters with sudden urges. You will be intuitive with above average intelligence and can organizing almost anything. Intelligence in a cool, calm and collected way that allows no room for feelings. Spiritual matters are much more important than material ones for you now. Very rebellious spirit looking for adventure pretty much describe your life.

    With Aquarius on the Midheaven, you will attract attention to yourself naturally, either through criminal activities to humanitarian efforts, on the other hand you may make a dramatic change of career or it may take unexpected and sudden turns at this time. This change will have to do with something very unusual, perhaps in medicine, science, computers, communications, fund raising or humanitarian organizations.

    You are always looking forward to the future and how life will progress. Change, progress and innovative methods in human development keep you strongly attuned to causes or social betterment. You are an idealist when it comes to any kind of social unfairness, human rights or uniformity.

    There are times in your life when you will forego your own needs in favor of the needs of others, and this is it. Your beliefs are unchangeable once an opinion is formed and you keep up to date in the latest developments. You will enjoy active participation in groups or community affairs at this time.

    You are friendly but keep an impersonal distance from others. Your acquaintances number many, but you can count your real friends usually on one hand. As friends you are detached and impartial. Because of your rational responses to your environment, you keep your emotions close to you and reveal them only to those who warrant it. Your independence keeps you from being overpowered or dominated by others. Marriage, relationships and tending to children are far from being customary and probably lean to what would shock most people.

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.

Cancer on 2nd cusp:

     Cancer on the second house of money indicates that you are protective of your financial assets and possessions. You won't be over extravagant with your finances, except perhaps when it involves matters of the home and family. You will be very intuitive and instinctive as to other peoples needs. You can naturally make your money from some form of commerce, perhaps related to the public. Look to the house that contains the moon to find out more about where the source of your income can come from.

Cancer on 3rd cusp:

     With Cancer on the cusp of the third house of communication and learning, you will be very sensitive and compassionate to people in your environment. You instinctively know what other people need especially in your immediate environment. This position of Cancer and the Moon makes for an excellent memory and recalling details. Any slights, outbursts and hurt feelings will be remembered as well. Discussions will take place on an emotional level rather than intellectual, perhaps with rapid changes in mood as well. There will also be more discussions with, and about, brothers and sisters who you are apt to be very close with. Friends, family members and neighbors can also figure into your close knit family of communications as well. Look to the house position of the Moon, to see where your interests can be found.

Leo on 4th cusp:

     With Leo on the fourth house of the home, family, roots, real estate, property and security,  you will put much pride into your home, family life and family. The home is a place where you can entertain in grand style, a show place for all of your acquisitions. The only problem with Leo on the fourth is that someone is going to have to be in charge, and who will make the decisions for the family, who will that be? Look to the house where the Sun is located to see where your home security can be found.

Virgo on 5th cusp:

    You have Virgo on the fifth house of Children, recreation, romance, creativity, artistic abilities, hobbies, writing books (creatively), speculation and investments. You will have a difficult time in the romance department, because Virgo here is so critical of everything it touches. Try mental companionship or a dog, someone who has a myriad of interests and doesn't mind talking about them, endlessly! Relationships will come together after a great deal of scrutiny, and the idea of courtship and the dating process probably turns you into jello, as you find it yucky to begin with. Virgo is not a strong nurturing sign (on a one on one level), so caring for each other and children will be less than fortunate, because you don't understand emotional needs, only intellectual ones. When you are going out to socialize, all plans and details must be worked out before you get into the car. Look to the house where Mercury is located to see where you might find your recreation and romance potential.

Scorpio on 6th cusp:

     You have Scorpio 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 are very serious, compulsive, passionate and obsessive about health, work and diet. Work in fields that allow you to research, or dig for answers, science or psychology. Health problems that develop are likely connected with being worn out through over-working your sensitive nervous system. Patience is not your forte, and it will be difficult for you to get along in close quarters at work, or  with co-workers especially when they don't do their share of the work. Look to the house where Mars/Pluto is located to see where you might find work or service to others.

Sagittarius 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 Sagittarius located here. Since Sagittarius is primarily a freedom loving sign, you may not get involved in committed relationships here as Sagittarius hates to be tied down. Should you marry, you will need a great deal of freedom and flexibility to keep the relationship going. Look to the house that contains Sagittarius to see how you will deal with partnerships.

Capricorn 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. Capricorn will have an influence on the above matters by adding a great deal of responsibility in financial matters without accumulating debt in the process. Even when faced with the responsibility of having to deal with other peoples money, you take great pride in doing so, honestly and above reproach. Look to see which house Saturn is located in, to see where your joint money can be found.

Capricorn 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 Capricorn ruling the ninth house, you will be conservative in thought and ideas. Travel is not high on your list, and you may actually avoid it unless totally necessary, as in business matters. With Saturn being the ruler here, you will take your duties in religion, philosophy, law and education very seriously, and you will not take your responsibilities lightly. Look to the house where Saturn is located to see where your interests in higher aspirations can be found.

Pisces 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 Pisces located in the eleventh house, the focus turns to strong bonds between friends, expecting them to be perfect, when in fact they may let you down because of their imperfections. You will out of your way and then some for a friend in need, but expecting the same from others can be a major disappointment. You are very sensitive to hurt feelings, and extremely generous to everyone. Look to the house where Neptune is located to see where you might find your friends, associations and group involvements and interests.

Taurus 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. Taurus energy on the twelfth house  indicates that you worry about financial matters that make you feel insecure, filling your lives with subconscious fears. Look to the house where Venus 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 12th house:

    The Solar Sun is now in your 12th house. But what does the position of the Solar Sun mean to you and how will it effect your life at this time?

    Private time will be needed so you can spend some quality time by yourself rather than sharing it with the outside world this year. This is not the time to gamble, speculate or take chances with your resources. The intuition is heightened and perhaps you will gain insights into hidden or secret matters that you are curious about. Any secret activities or secret love affairs are much more important to you now. You may notice an illness can arise, sometimes minor, that forces you to take some rest in preparation for the new year ahead of you. Look at the aspects to the Solar Sun this year to see what you will accomplish.

Sun sextile Moon:

    The creative juices are flowing this year! What can you use that creativity on? Let your mind go free and experience something perhaps for the first time.

    Don't be so easygoing this year that people take advantage of you unless you want them to, that is the only real danger this here. Romance and Real Estate matters are also favored.

    Satisfaction with working conditions allows a better product to be produced and a more traditional type of entertainment will prove more satisfying to you in your off time.

Sun semisquare Venus:

    Uncontrolled romantic attachments and pleasure seeking may be all in vain and cost you a bundle in the process. Be careful not to smother people with affections, or let them get an emotional hold on you that you cannot break. Remember that affections will not be returned by others for a few years.

    Emotional slights can cut like a knife even more so under this influence, so use caution in the remarks department at this time. This year is notorious for overindulgence in the social and sexual department. This isn't the best time for a party because you can easily go overboard in the food department leaving you with a refrigerator full of leftovers.

    Actually what is going on here, is a childish need for attention that desperately needs fulfilling in whatever form it takes. All interests this year will focus on being self centered, so deal with it however you have to.

Sun trine Uranus:

    The wheel of fortune can easily bring possibilities for advancement, or a desire to learn something new. This is a great time for a second honeymoon. This year favors buying or playing with some new electronic gadgets or toys. Wonderful creative insights can fill your head this year, so try and use them for your own advantage. Social activities increase and whatever you tackle should work out very well.

    This is a wonderful time for a family gathering and the grasping of new ideas will be very easy for you this year. A time of increased popularity has found you and exciting adventures can be experienced. Some mild speculations can be rewarding as well.

    Romantic encounters or relationships that start this year are guaranteed to be ELECTRIC in nature. Some sort of sudden turn in your life can easily occur that will have you looking at things in totally new ways. You may suddenly decide to move or change your vocation. Creativity is blessed with new concepts, ideas and form.

Sun sesquiquadrate Neptune:

    Let the buyer be very aware! There is a very powerful potential for misunderstandings and deceptions present with this year. The main objective this year is not to be taken advantage of. If you are in a scandalous situation, DUCK, as the bottom may fall out this year.

    I understand it is difficult to believe but people may lie to you or deceive you for their own gain but it is nevertheless true. Avoid escapism through sexual outlets, drugs, alcohol (adverse effects) and gambling which will leave you broke. Love affairs entered into this year are UNREALISTIC.

    Make sure windows and doors are locked tight to keep unwanted nastiness out! This is a low energy physical cycle, so include more rest time. Watch your diet and eat more natural foods to keep your inner workings in proper working order. Get rich schemes must not be attempted because you are vulnerable to deception. Pregnancies can arise this year that are unwanted and must be dealt with. Any judgements made at this time will be incorrect.

Sun sextile Node:

    Social activities and artistic expression are favored. Social popularity soars. You may assume a leadership role. Intellectual contacts and meetings can take place where you can assume a role to work as a team. Relationships with the public become more important and a woman can be united with a man.

Sun conjuntion Asc.:

    Vitality, energy and enthusiasm are in abundance this year. A new start for the new year confronts you. Confidence is high and the ability to get a lot accomplished is with you.

Sun trine MC:

    You are positive and energized, ready to make positive changes. Career goals are right on track, so don't mess it up! Try doing some decorating around the home or office to give it a warmer appearance. Goals are active and determined. Pay careful attention to details because your impulsive nature may miss a key element. Be a leader this year!

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 11th house:

    The Solar Moon is now in your 11th house. The Solar Moon rules your emotional needs and the specific houses show where your needs will lie and be met for the next few weeks.

    Hopes and wishes, friendships and goals take on emotional importance and emotional determination sees us forward to those goals. Time spent with friends is a wonderful outlet for personal thoughts and feelings as we have a deeper appreciation for friends in our environment now. You may even form some new friendships or bonds that are emotionally satisfying. Emotionally we will support and protect friends moreso than other times and if they are in need, we are right there for them. We can be easily hurt though if those same feelings are not reciprocated or appreciated by others. Avoid being possessive, as this can drive people away rather than draw them nearer. If the Solar Moon makes stressful aspects while in the 11th house, there can be some friendships or associations with groups that become stressed.

Moon sextile Uranus:

    Cars should be bought or repaired with this placement, if possible when the Solar Return Moon is on the increase or well aspected to the sign Aquarius. New technologies and ideas can be grasped much easier at this time, and changes implemented on the home front will have a positive outcome. People can and will show up unexpectedly and out of the blue.

    Phone calls can suddenly arrive from women in distress this year, and you will find the compassion to provide comfort to them. Communications can arrive this year from an Aquarius person, or a person with those qualities.

Moon trine Node:

    You may experience an increase in popularity this year, or find that dealing with the public becomes more prosperous. You may also have some insights into knowing the next step to take in any situation that arises. You may be working more closely with a woman, or numbers of people this year. Popularity, meeting new people, happiness color this year.

Moon sextile 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.


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 1st house:

    Mercury is in your 1st house, and indicates areas of interests in your life at this time, as well as health matters or where our thoughts are likely to be focused.

    You will be opening up verbally to the outside world now and this will be a welcomed change after last year when communication was not only difficult but unwanted. People will react to you now just shaking their heads as you talk with such speed that others never get a word in edgewise. Because of this be careful of confusing yourself and others at the same time. This is a favorable time for negotiating and forming contracts with others and short distance travels are emphasized. Stressful aspects to Mercury while in the 1st house can bring on nervous problems and irritations, a very rigid self righteous attitude can develop or the communicative ability interferes with working conditions.

Mercury Semisextile Venus:

    This is a time of fortunate communications with others, both in person and long distance by phone. Communications are easy this year and will flow quite nicely. Mentally stimulating friends can be fun and this is also a good time for a sincere chat about important issues as the mind and emotions are in sync. Use this year for making speeches to the public or attend a lecture.

    This is an auspicious time for legal matters and marriage or studying any subject. This year favors advertising and business communications as well as short trips. Good news might be received about a loved one that can make you very happy.

    Consider this a quiet and peaceful time in your life. Enjoy it, you never understanding when the inlaws or other oddities in life will be showing up. Opportunities for social activities and romantic interludes can also come up at this time.

Mercury Quincunx Neptune:

    Be somewhat skeptical if any offers that arrive this year seem too good to good to be true as confusion, lies and deceptions will be found in communications. Avoid dishonesty at all cost and stay away from dishonest people. You may notice that your nerves can be on edge so make sure you have all the facts before you engage your mouth.

    Avoid any sort of contracts, as the fine print is not to your advantage. Delays in mail are to be expected, so if you are waiting for something, be patient. WATCH YOUR DRIVING to avoid any mishaps at this time.

    Ill health connected with drugs, medications or alcohol is possible, so be careful in their use as you are very susceptible to Negative effects from them, whether they are prescription or not.


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

Solar Return Venus in 3rd house:

    Venus is in your 3rd house now. 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.

    Social activities are found in everyday surroundings. This is a great time to tell someone how you feel, even if they already know it. Short drives are favored at this time and close family members will be friendlier to you now and news that is received will be pleasant and warm. Look at the aspects to Venus this year to see how you will accomplish this and where. Also note where your shortcomings will be found by difficult aspects to Venus. If Venus makes a stressful aspect while in the 3rd house, some insincere gestures may be made to be pleasant or unimportant matters may be talked about.

Venus opposition Neptune:

    Be alert to possible deceptive practices in any dealings or romantic encounters at this time and be especially careful of what you wish for this year, you just might get it and then you have to deal with it. This is a very vulnerable time for romance or emotions so do not make permanent commitments to others this year.

    Relationships can easily break up under this year. Watch out for Con Men, you may not see them coming. Meetings and appointments with women can be cancelled because of an illness and escapism through alcohol and drugs should be avoided this year when they are the most adverse to the body. Get rich schemes will not go your way and most likely fail. Venus trine Pluto:

    Encounters open a wider circle of colleagues to you at this time and renewed commitments of love can be undertaken. Insights into love can occur this year that are quite profound and strong attractions to the opposite sex will be felt. Marital relations can find their beginning this year and if at all possible, give flowers to someone special. True love can be found somewhere close by you this year and remember that "Love will conquer all" is the theme of this year. Those of sad heart will be much happier than in the past this year.

    Thus is a time of sexual stimulation which should be quite exciting and there will be a greater tolerance for others and is a virtue which should be exercised at every opportunity. Your social life will pick up and you may have the urge to invite people over for a party. Secret loves can easily develop this year and existing relationships will rise to a higher level of understanding.


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

Solar Return Mars in 5th house:

    Mars is in your 5th house now. 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.

    Sex and lovemaking energy is very high at this time and the potential for accident is present for yourself and children. Children may require more than normal attention now and be careful that family members are not neglected.

    Gambling and speculative ventures are not favored as a certain discipline will be lacking in your life. Sexual jealousy or frustrations are possible, so try to take the "edge" off by engaging in dancing or physical activity. You can be somewhat crude or invite physical harm to yourself now, or on the other hand you may get involved in a sudden and impulsive love relationship.

    If Mars makes a difficult aspect while in the 5th house, then your behavior can be characterized as undisciplined to say the least, especially in social situations. There is also a tendency to choose entertainment that is exciting, or watch horror or action movies now.

Mars opposition Jupiter:

     Generosity can get out of hand, so be careful with your funds and possessions. If you cannot afford to buy something, don't buy it now! Use caution in your spending now, as you may purchase something with a lot of good will in your heart, for the wrong or undeserving people. You may find out too late that the people that you put your time, effort and love into do not have your best intentions at heart. It is therefore better to buy small gifts and offer small tokens, than to look like a major fool!

    Arrogance, accidents and impulsive actions are advised against now and caution is advised in business dealings with foreigners and danger is present while travelling!

    Financial mistakes can easily be made now, leaving you with egg on your face. This period is unfavorable for any legal activities and don't start any new endeavors because impatience and carelessness can be your downfall.

    Relationships actually appear better than they are at this time. Unethical business practices should be avoided and use caution when dealing with others, especially foreigners. Be careful of others who encourage you to spend money or waste your time and energy as money comes and money goes very quickly now. Challenges will excite you for a few years and impulsive and hasty actions will be your downfall as you go off like a loose cannon and more than likely wind up overextending yourself and getting involved in very UNWISE ventures. Legal and religious disagreements occur now, so avoid remarks made to others, no matter how innocent they were meant to be. Travel and trips will prove to be more expensive than you counted on through your own extravagance as well.

Mars SemiSquare Pluto:

    Community property interests can be upsetting in some way now and business failures can occur now affecting many people. Circumstances beyond your control can easily develop and this is certainly not the time to try to discipline the kids or have a fight with your spouse as things can get way out of hand. Deliveries delayed due to hazardous conditions is also a possibility.

    Maintain patience with others during this year, because Solar Return Mars loves to agitate things. High energy will be in abundance. You will experience great opposition to people you confront for no reason and challenges to egos will be easy to find. A different course of action is needed for a few years.

    Loose ends can trip you up as they always do and ruthless and underhanded behavior can undermine any situation, so try to keep your distance from others. Serious conflicts between individuals can occur now, or you can be a victim of someone elseÆs ruthlessness. Losses will occur through confrontations with others and jealousy and possessiveness can rear their ugly heads as well. Difficulties in taxes, insurance, alimony and sexual prowess are all direct results of this year

    The danger of contracting diseases (social, sexual or otherwise) and encountering annoyances, physical and verbal abuse is high with this placement. Attacks on others is likely to have a ruthless overtone and trying to institute changes now will meet with great resistance. Impulsive actions are always regretted at a later date, so try your best to avoid them. Be extremely cautious in what you do, as your actions now can have very explosive consequences.

Mars trine Asc.:

    You might be experiencing a lucky streak of sorts right this year, but Solar Return Venus doesn't bring you the big bucks, so don't overdo it. A new love relationship may begin this year and all will go smoothly in matters of love.


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 11th house:

    Jupiter is in your 11th house now. Jupiter tends to expand your efforts and brings good fortune and positive change to the house it occupies.

    The emphasis is on group activities and organizations that will benefit you in some way. Friends become more supportive of your endeavors and the need to be with many people or have more friends is present. You will learn a great deal about yourself now, but don't allow selfishness to enter your life. What you give out to others will come back 10 times. An increased sense of brotherhood with the world and humanitarian efforts will be satisfying and rewarding. If Jupiter makes a stressful aspect while in the 11th house there is the danger of using friends and organizations for your own personal and selfish gain.

Jupiter sextile Asc.:

    You are able to see the needs of others and can turn it to your advantage and your positive mannerisms will attract people to you. Relationships will be happy, showing joy when you are together or with other people and they will respond the same way to you.

    Your energy flow is smooth and harmonious and you have a greater faith that everything will work out for you. You might meet that special someone that brings you great emotional happiness this year as brand new loves can begin.

    This is an excellent time for school or new fields of study and should you have the opportunity to teach or lecture have no fear, you have found your present calling, or it has found you. People that are quite different than yourself or from different cultures or countries can enter your life. Relations with the public and marriage are very prosperous.


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 12th house:

    Saturn is in your 12th house now. 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.

    A time for withdrawing from the world and in a retreat or place of seclusion. It is the end of a cycle and a time to say adieu to old habits and prepare for a rebirth of self. Break old habits and say good-bye to old failures and inadequacies and cut your losses now and look ahead to the future. Favors work done in secret, parapsychology, Ashrams, retreats and the culmination of Karmic debts waiting for a new cycle to begin. If Saturn makes a difficult aspect while in the 12th house, fears, moodiness, depression or underhanded means must be guarded against.

Saturn square Uranus:

    There will be an inability to hear the opinions of other people and you may act in a rude manner because of your extreme restlessness. Delays that you experience this year are caused by circumstances that you cannot control and there will be frustrations with people whose ideas or viewpoints differ from yours, or you will notice that friends who are normally reliable will become somewhat indifferent and you will be aware of odd reactions to your current circumstances.

    Relationships that are strong will pass the test of this year, however relationships that are experiencing problems will either undergo change, or end.

    Heavy obligations will be imposed on you this year and tensions can cause an explosive nature. The urge for freedom will not only rock your boat, but unnerve those around you whether on the domestic or career levels. Reversals of fortune is also possible this year.

    This is not a favorable time to be involved with any groups or organizations and difficulties will be found in money, legal matters, taxes, insurance and wills. In health matters the teeth may need some attention as sudden eruptions can occur.

Saturn square Node:

    Health matters can be somewhat vulnerable through constipation, lessened bowel movements or constrictions in the throat or throat muscles.

    Gloom, depression and sadness can easily occur this year, so stop blaming others for your failures and inability to keep a long lasting friendship or relationship going.

Saturn square MC:

    You can feel quite insecure about any recognition that comes to you this year, preferring to be unnoticed and taking a subordinate position to stay out of the spotlight. There can be some sadness over the loss of a love as well.

    Challenges can come to confront you this year and many choices are available in your life direction, but which one to choose, that is the dilemma. You may be feeling somewhat cut off from the world or lonely this year, so it is important for this to happen so you can get in touch with the inner person to make very personal changes by yourself

    Relationships will undergo unbearable tests and the weak ones will not survive and obstacles are sure to arise in the business arena. This is a time to make adjustments in your life this year, so don't let emotional connections prevent you from your life's work.

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 10th house:

    Uranus is in your 10th house now. 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.

    Your career can take an unexpected turn suddenly causing your goals, objectives and conditions to change and they may even become restrictive. A step up or a step down in position possible and conforming to the norm will be next to impossible. If Uranus makes a difficult aspect while in the 10th house, you may suddenly lose your job, or suffer other career setbacks.

Uranus opposition Node:

    STRESS has entered your life this year, so use any means to get rid of it before it gets the best of you. You will not appreciate any sexual advances made towards you at this time and any assistance that is offered by others will be refused.

    You may find that during this time matters of sexuality become less important to you and matters of pure intimacy without being sexually active become more important and necessary. You can also find that people can come to you for consolation and you can do so without the threat of sexual advancement on your part coming into play, instead enjoying people for their company.

    Upsetting circumstances arrive in group and individual relationships and freedom will cause setbacks. Pig headedness is a negative use of this energy and arguments are a positive outlet for this energy because it gets everything out on the open.

Uranus conjunction MC:

    New occupations can easily begin at this time as you open your mind to new ideas and concepts and you can gain expertise in unusual areas. Relationships at this time will be more of a friendship than intimate ones and the people that you associate with at this time will be very unusual as well.

    Unpredictable and unexpected events can come into your life without warning and your career and ambitions can change suddenly in favor of something new and different. New kinds of work are far more appealing to you this year.

    Events can come along and force a change of profession and new employment opportunities can come through friends. Science, the humanities and astrology all hold some sort of fascination for you this year and sudden promotions are a possibility as well. The motto here is : Expect the unexpected.

Solar Return Neptune in 9th house:

    Neptune is in your 9th house now. 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.

    This is a good position for Neptune allowing intellectual and spiritual maturity, unless you get so wrapped up in the idealized part of it that causes confusion and misunderstandings and you lose track of reality. If Neptune makes a difficult aspect while in the 9th house, there can be strange involvements in cult religions or belief systems. You can also be deceived by someone disguised as a spiritual "master".

Solar Return Pluto in 6th house:

    Pluto is in your 6th house now. 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 at this time.

    Stress and illness is possible from requiring too much from the body and changes on the job will be forced rather than sought. If Pluto makes a difficult aspect while in the 6th house, then there can be hazards around the workplace that can affect the health.
