NORTHERN HEMISPHERIC EMPHASIS in your yearly Solar return chart
Charts with nine or all of the planets below the horizon indicate a period of internalization rather than a push for outward achievement.
It is the internal integration which is most important at this time. This is true even of 5th house of Solar return placements, wherein the inner personality must be made external through
It is also true of the 6th house, where health and work changes result from inner processes moving toward outer manifestation. Emotional satisfaction and fulfillment are the primary goals and motivating forces; therefore a lot of attention is given to feelings and subjective thoughts. What others think has little influence if the personal perspective is strong. Some will be withdrawn or somewhat reclusive during the year, using this time for quiet reflection and the fostering of inner strength. You might appreciate evenings at home with family and friends rather than social or business evenings out on the town. Use this time to become more rooted and in touch with yourself and others.
Allow intuitive processes to grow so you will be better able to sense your true future direction.
The difficulty associated with the northern emphasis is that you may get so involved with your feelings that they overwhelm you and prevent you from living a normal life. You can neglect your responsibilities and lose all motivation toward success. It may become more important to express your negative feelings about your boss than to correct detrimental situations. If you cannot achieve a sense of fulfillment, you will grow bitter and sever relationships with little or no negotiation or warning. Nursing a wound is an inadequate substitute for emotional gratification.
This time can be used to get in touch with your sense of fulfillment and past achievement. You cannot understand where you are going if you don't understand where you have been. You cannot set goals for the future if you have not assimilated your past successes, and you can't branch out if you have not created a good support system among those you love.
This is a time for building the foundation necessary for a new cycle of external achievement.
Although you may actually be very successful during this period, you will still be laying the groundwork for a new round of activity.
