POSITION OF THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT
The solar return ascendant gives information about the annual atmosphere from a birthday to the one next year.
The sign of the annual ascendant is very important because it shows what we have done during the whole year (experiences, psychological consequences).
With a Solar Return Ascendant in Virgo, this year you are devoted to work and organization of your daily life.
Just like ants, you work patiently, you make lifelong plans and you give yourself goals.
Nothing is randomized.
For a better tomorrow you aren't afraid to clean, classify, analyze the ins and outs of a question.
If you don't take things too seriously and think about taking a break every once in a while, this year may be a great year because you will reap what you had sown.
It's also a year full of work, material productions...you are getting ready for the upcoming year.
The house (or sector) where the Solar Return Ascendant is determines how it is going to be connected to your life all year long.

Since this planet moves slowly (one zodiac sign every seven years), we don't give much importance to its position in signs and we will focus on its position in houses.
We will do the same thing for Neptune and Pluto.
For those three planets the interpretation of the aspects of natal planets are like a background for the transits and they can last up to two years.
We have to put things into perspective though when it comes to the relevance of those interpretations.
As for the past transits, it's best to minimize their interpretation that usually is a consequence of past events.
However transits happening during the solar year are very important and will have a strong influence on the solar year.
If you have read the book "Astroquick Astral Forecast" you should now focus on matching transits with their exact dates (you can find them at the beginning of the paragraph).

But it's usually just strong worries.
The way you eat may also be affected, that's why you should be careful with allergies or food poisoning: you need to eat healthy food.
Finally during those long months you may also learn to control your emotions by searching in your past what happened in your childhood to make you feel this way.
That's why you should go see a therapist.
