Christine traveled every year to adjust her solar return chart to place the Sun in the 10th house. She thought this placement would give her maximum control over her life.
This particular year, she was on a tight travel schedule, and her plane was grounded due to bad weather. She never made it to her intended location. The Sun fell into the 9th house
with Mars and Mercury, and all three planets are intercepted.
This woman was a school teacher, and she was very tired of teaching. She was close to retirement and needed to move on. She was hoping for a lump sum retirement package, and with Venus in the 8th house, she was likely to get it.
The main focus of this solar return lies with the three Leo planets in the 9th house, opposed to Jupiter in the 3rd house and squared by Saturn in the 1st house. Remember, the 9th house has to do with belief systems. Any opposition
from the 9th to the 3rd signals the need to test all beliefs at a very practical, mundane level, to test whether a belief will work and hold true when applied to an everyday situation. In this way, spirituality can become grounded in action. You can also Ask me Free and I will response as fast as Possible sometimes instant via Chat or Ask the Community in REDDIT
Christine was a daily meditator, and on most days she would meditate three or more hours. Spirit in action was certainly the call of this chart and an important step for Christine.
Two other major issues were occurring at this time. With Saturn in the first house, there was a health issue. Christine had picked up a respiratory infection while traveling. The infection lasted a long time, turned into chronic asthmatic bronchitis, and finally pneumonia. Christine fought the infection for many months and was not free until Saturn left the first house, transiting over the house cusp into the 2nd. The pneumonia reached its height as Pluto conjuncted the solar return Ascendant by transit.
Christine had been in a very difficult relationship seven years prior to this solar return. Since then, she had withdrawn from social involvement and had not dated. It was on her return home shortly after her birthday that she met someone.
Note the Moon in the 5th house
indicative of a "first' (in a long time). Christine and this man were very attracted to each other, but her fear of being hurt was a major inhibition to the relationship. Pluto in the 1st house
can show a psychological or self-control issue. As Pluto drew closer to the solar return Ascendant, moved out of the 12th house
and entered the 1st solar return house by transit, the relationship intensified and the lung problems grew worse.
As Saturn left the 1st solar return house
by transit and entered the 2nd solar return house
, the woman took a leave of absence without pay. She endeavored to live on less and tapped into her retirement money. Her lung problems cleared up.
When outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) change solar return house placements due to their transiting movement, two interpretations are indicated. In the example chart above, Pluto can be interpreted in the 12th house (where it is placed in the solar return chart) and in the 1st house (where it transits to), while Saturn can be interpreted in the 1st solar return house and the 2nd solar return house it transits to. The actual date that the transiting planet shifts from one solar return house to another is significant.
From year to year, the Sun passes through the Solar return chart
in a clockwise direction, falling into every third house for those people who remain in the same location. See For example..
Astrologers use the term "Sun in the 9th house of Solar Return" to describe a particular Astrological Reading technique of observing the moving planets forward in YEARLY BASIS.
This technique is aptly named because it describes how a person progresses through their life From Birth Day to Birth day.
Therefore Progress In Yearly Solar Return are likely to show us signposts in life's journey and consequently help us gain wisdom and understanding.
