SOLAR RETURN or ANNIVERSARY CHART
A solar return is a chart calculated the year when the Sun comes back to the exact same position as the one of the birth chart (exact same time). We also call it "anniversary chart" because this particular time of the year generally gives us a preview of what the next solar year is going to be about (from a birth date to another the next year).
The astrological study of your solar return is based on a general analysis of the birth date and birth place sky chart but also on the analysis of its comparison with the birth sky chart (birth chart). This superimposition of both charts will give you more details in several areas such as your love life, your family, your professional life, your finances, your hobbies, etc.
The solar return is very important in the study of transits and will help you figure out in what areas the elements signified by the planetary transits will happen.
We remind you that it is impossible for a computerized analysis, even detailed, to do what a professional astrologer could do. That's why some interpretations may sound contradictory or inappropriate to you. Consequently you should read this document over and over again all through the year in order to see the connection it has with elements of your life. Then you will definitely know what to focus on in your life in order to face any situation happening during your solar year.
Have a good reading !
POSITION OF THE ANNUAL ASCENDANTThe 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 Gemini, this year you are going to make many contacts around you, as much at work as in your personal life. You want to express yourself, to show how you feel, and in order to reach your goals you can use what the world is offering as any communication ways: phone, business meetings, internet and advertisement, writing (and you are good at that) and last but not least...speaking. You may have several things to do at once or start a year of studies. You will frequently be in contact with your brothers, sisters or neighbors.
The house (or sector) where the Solar Return Ascendant is determines how it is going to be connected to your life all year long.Annual ascendant in natal house V
You will focus on personal relationships, children, creativity. This usually proves (if there is no dissonant aspect) you will be happy in relationships all year long. So don't be afraid to open your heart because you also deserve to be happy! There might be a birth somewhere around you, or it might also be your own rebirth! Consequently if you are an artist, people may approve your talents. If it's in your natal chart...you may "play" a lot.Ascendant in conjunction to natal Venus
You will focus on the way you love, the way you commit yourself in your relationships and especially with your partner, according to the aspects that connect it to other planets in the Solar Return. Your main focus is love. This cycle may also be about a salary raise or artistic skills you would have to develop.

POSITION OF THE ANNUAL MIDHEAVENDuring a solar return, the Midheaven shows how, during a solar year, to build a social or professional growth (as much positive as negative) according to the transits. The sign in which the Midheaven is shows how skilled we are in order to reach our goals.
Midheaven in Pisces
You will have to focus your goals on the irrational, the subjective and spirituality. As long as you know how to handle your efforts, you may see your soul rising. You can study or elevate your soul in order to reach your goals. You can experience it in different ways: with meditation, prayer or therapy. This year you can also be in the pipeline, we just don't know which way to go. We may also visit prisoners or ill people, overall we may sacrifice ourselves for others.
The house the midheaven is in will show what kind of events we will go through.Midheaven in natal house I
In this situation, you can act all alone and decide for your future as long as transits allow it. If they do, you will be helped a lot. You work for your future and one day or another you will feel the good consequences of it. Issues connected to your future or to your professional situation will happen and you will have to face them.Midheaven in conjunction to the natal South Node

Midheaven in conjunction to annual NeptuneThis year your goals aren't well defined and it may keep you from climbing the social ladder. Try not to focus on tomorrow and to be careful...
THE ANNUAL SUN
Given that we focus on the solar return just as much as the zodiac in the natal chart to build an annual chart, the solar return Sun always keeps the same sign.
Its interpretation in houses will help us understand the part it plays in the solar year. Its aspects to other planets are also very important: dissonant aspects show how it may become weaker, harmonic aspects will show how much it can be improved all year long.
Annual Sun in House III

ANNUAL MERCURYIn a natal chart, the position of Mercury is more interesting in houses than in signs. Indeed since the planet doesn't go far from the Sun, they are often both either in the same sign or Mercury will be in the previous or the next sign.
Its position in houses gives us information about the way we should communicate and how to use our intellect all year long. Its aspects to other planets help us know about opportunities or difficulties we will have all year long.Mercury in House III

ANNUAL URANUSSince 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).
Annual Uranus shows us how to upgrade some things in our lives, that's why we should expect some surprises and changes. It also shows how to be different from others and how to express our originality.Uranus in House XI
You want more freedom and newness at work. You may meet new friends and let go of the ones you already have. With harmonic aspects you can start a group or a team in order to find a new direction.Uranus in trine to your natal Sun
You will open up yourself to a new group of people who will match more your personality. People come to you and communication is easy. You will meet original and independent people and most of the time you will develop something new.The creator in you will make you different from others and you will be able to express your originality without holding it back. Travels will be favored and you will accept the most unexpected changes because they will make you grow.Uranus in sextile to your Ascendant
You are willing to change the way you are with your partner or your associates by being more talkative and by favoring communication and harmony. There are new things in your life and everybody can enjoy it!Uranus in square to your natal Saturn
You will have to reconsider your social position. Your authority may be questioned and your knowledge criticized; unexpected events may stop or change your social growth. But the positive thing about it is that you will know if this path you chose is the right one for you, and if it's not...you will just have to change it again.Uranus in trine to your natal Uranus
You are looking for your inner self by stepping away from your family and friends (in a good way). Deep inside you know what you want and you need to follow your instinct. That's why you naturally express your singularity and question what's established in order to innovate. People follow you, listen to you and your entourage matches what you work for and your original ideas.
Uranus in dissonant aspect to annual PlutoEven though this global aspect involves thousands of people this year, you will unconsciously need to rebel against authority and constraints and this may put you in extreme situations sometimes. You need to rely on concrete matters (you should check in what houses those two planets are in order to know more about this annual aspect).
ANNUAL NEPTUNEThe Annual Neptune shows when you have to be careful in order to keep improving yourself and to stop dealing with uncertainties and illusions. Depending on the aspects, it will tell you if you are on the right direction or not and how to follow the right path with more spirituality and clarity.Neptune in House X
This year you won't always be realistic as far as your goals and social aspirations. You want to focus your mind on a career that matches your aspirations but you have no idea how to get started.Neptune in square to your natal Moon
You are frequently delusional and if you don't stay focused, you might make a lot of mistakes, forget a lot of things and be wrong about a person (especially if it's a woman). Make sure you don't become addicted to alcohol or drugs but also platonic or virtual relationships. With harmonic aspects, you will be inspired and in total harmony with nature.Neptune in trine to your natal Venus
You may fall in love with someone who could be your ideal and live amazing moments with this person. As far as finances this period is pretty satisfying, you won't have to worry a lot because you have no major problems with money. If you're an artist this will be a very productive phase.
Neptune in harmonic aspect to annual PlutoEven though this global aspect involves thousands of people this year, you will become much more spiritual and it will positively influence your life in many ways (you should check in what houses those two planets are in order to know more about this annual aspect).
ANNUAL PLUTOAnnual Pluto will make you focus on what you want to surpass yourself for, only if you decide to let go of the past and of your subconscious. It also shows the transformation and crisis you will go through in order to move on with your life.Pluto in House VII
Your partner will be at the crossroads. You will have to change the relationship you have with other people by making sure they don't involve you in their problems.Pluto in conjunction to natal Saturn
You feel like everything you had built or studied until now could be destroyed. It's best to accept your responsibilities with the seriousness you always had in order to make business. More than ever you need to be lucid.
SUPERIMPOSITION OF THE ANNUAL HOUSES WITH THE NATAL HOUSESMost of the time the annual ascendant changes sign, the twelve houses of the solar Return will change their superimposition with the twelve houses of the natal chart through the years.
Given that the interactions between those houses are numerous, they can be interpreted differently. Don't take what you will read in the next four paragraphs literally. However it may confirm or contradict what you had read in the previous paragraphs and may also give you an extra information.House II in natal house V (and House VIII in natal house XI)
This year you will probably spend a lot for games or love if you're in a relationship. This might involve you and your children. You may also use your artistic and educational skills. Changes in friendships are possible: distance, arguments, and even death, but other aspects have to confirm it.House III in natal house VI (and House IX in natal house XII)
Those superimpositions are about your relationship with people at work or at home: travels, professional initiatives or writing. But you tend to forget about your personal and spiritual life: you have no time for it, that's why you should slow down and take the time to rest and focus.House V in natal house VIII (and House XI in natal house II)
This superimposition shows how you can go through a relationship and how many problems they can bring sometimes. That's why, if it's confirmed by other aspects, it might be the end of a relationship, because you break up or because your partner passed away. You may also financially speculate, you need to plan ahead as far as the money you need for the future. Some of your friends may help you pay your dues and ask other people to find you a job, etc.House VI in natal house IX (and House XII in natal house III)
Your job may be connected to a foreign country. You may try to blossom thanks to sports and the mountain in order to breathe some fresh air. One of your family members can be sick or hospitalized and you can have secrets with them. You may also meet someone secretly.
