Solar Return Sun in Aspect
The following interpretations of the aspects between the Sun in
the Solar Return chart with other Solar Return planets and points
come from the
Solar Return Report.
Solar Return Sun Aspects with Solar Return Moon
When the Sun conjuncts, opposes, or squares the Moon in the Solar Return
chart, this points to a key period in the native's life when major new
beginnings, endings, and activities occur. For example, marriages or births of a
first child occur frequently when the Sun conjuncts the Moon in the SR chart.
Culminations often occur when a Full Moon occurs in the SR chart.
These hard aspects of the Sun and Moon often point to relationships and/or
significant times in the native's life when his or her actions receive real
reactions in the life. There is little moderation in the native's life during
these periods. The Sun-Moon conjunction is a dynamic aspect, but besides
signifying new beginnings, it is also a very receptive energy. Things tend to
come to the native, while things appear to be taken from the native when the Sun
is in opposition to the Moon in the natal chart.
Hard Sun-Moon aspects in the Solar Return signify turning points in the
native's life. Connections are made or ended. With a square between the Sun and
the Moon, either there is an event that changes the native's life significantly,
or there is some kind of conflict arising from a great urge to do something
different. All hard aspects point to a very busy, dynamic, and significant
period in the life.
Solar Return Sun conjunct Solar Return Moon
This astrological influence is very strong and accentuates the possibilities
of the Sun's position by house. The energy of these two adjacent luminaries
could be very intense. You will be more sensitive and will react more strongly
to things around you. The New Moon under which your birthday falls indicates new
experiences, initiatives, and success in projects that are begun in this period.
This energy is concentrated in the house that the Sun occupies during this year
and will benefit you immensely.
You may also become more sentimental and have the need to strengthen your family
ties. Your interest in discovering your roots will increase and you will feel
more connected and attached to those who have had an influence on your childhood
and your early home environment. This influence also favors contact with the
public, especially women.
Solar Return Sun opposition or square Solar Return Moon
This influence could bring tension in your home which will disturb your
tranquility during this period. Don't get too emotional about the problems you
have, and try to analyze them more rationally. You could experience
disagreements or tension in the relationship with your mother or other female
relatives, and you may not always get your family's approval for what you do or
say. You also could have some problems with your health because of your need for
emotional balance. Watch out for nervous tension and eat a healthy diet.
You could feel weaker and less effective than usual, and you may find yourself
at odds with relatives who are difficult to get along with at this time. You
could lose patience with people and if your work exposes you to the public, you
should be careful to avoid unnecessary disagreements and misunderstandings,
especially with women who won't tend to approve of your ideas. You will probably
be dissatisfied with your daily routine and may even have the desire to change

benefit you in the future. You also could receive help from powerful or very
influential women. Your popularity will increase and you will feel comfortable
in your surroundings in spite of any difficulties that you encounter.
Your physical body will be very resistant to any type of illness. If you have
some kind of on-going health problem at this time, it is probable that it will
be successfully treated during this year. This is mainly due to the fact that
you will find it easier to deal with your emotions, thereby putting less stress
on your mind and body.
Solar Return Sun semi-square, quincunx, or sesquiquadrate Solar

year. There is a possibility that problems from the past that haven't been
resolved yet will resurface. You can't expect much support from your family in

advantage. There also is a tendency to get behind in your correspondence and to
neglect to communicate as well with your friends.

situations better and put things in their proper place. Communication will be
important to you and this influence will prompt you to keep your correspondence

or several short trips, especially if other astrological factors in this report
indicate the same.

You will be very sensitive and sociable during this period. Your circle of
friends will increase, and you will be much more concerned with enjoying
pleasant activities in your daily life. You also will be more concerned with
making personal improvements, especially in your looks. You may find yourself
getting more interested than normal in acquiring luxuries and bringing comfort
into your life, so be careful about overspending. It also increases your
personal magnetism, causing others to take special interest in you. You will
have opportunities for romantic relationships. One person (or several!) may
court you intensely. You will receive innumerable invitations, and the choice of
accepting will be yours. This will not be a year of solitude. If you already
have someone in your life, your relationship will be harmonious and you will
share many pleasant moments. This will be a pleasant year and you will have a
good time in spite of any problems that you may have. You will be more
agreeable, happy, and creative. If you have artistic inclinations, you will
produce a lot during this year. Your need to express yourself will be very
strong. This influence will manifest with intensity in the area influenced by
the Sun during this year (where the Sun is placed by house).

creativity will increase. If you have artistic inclinations, you will accomplish
a lot during this time.
Solar Return Sun semi-square Solar Return Venus
You may encounter, and have to deal with, some unresolved romantic problems from
the past. Stay calm and develop a positive attitude toward your partner, as well
as your social life in general. The irritations and displeasures caused by
others could be the reflection of your own inner uneasiness. This aspect
generates a desire for comfort and pleasure, which could lead to disruptions in
your routine, followed by a possible loss of income. Do your best to control
these yearnings and search for a creative solution for your inner
Solar Return Sun semisextile Solar Return Venus

romantic side. You will express your emotions in an open and direct manner.
There is a possibility for a romance in your life that will come about in a way
and in a location where you don't expect it.
Solar Return Sun in Aspect with Solar Return Mars
Solar Return Sun conjunct Solar Return Mars
This is an excellent year to begin new projects, especially those that involve
dynamic activity or some risk. You will feel full of vitality and vigor to
confront life. You won't enjoy sitting down too much or spending time in one
room for a prolonged period and will resist maintaining a daily routine. You
will need to find an outlet for your increased dynamic energy. One possibility
would be participating in some sport or some work that requires physical effort.
But this influence could also cause you to be more aggressive,, impulsive, and
impatient. You will be prone to overreact to the smallest things. It would be
wise to be more aware than usual to how you act in situations which trigger off
your negative side. This behavior could effect your social relationships and
bring about conflicts with people who don't agree with your way of thinking.
Your confidence will be strong and you will defend your ideas with great vigor.
Try to maintain a certain amount of flexibility. You will be inclined to express
yourself most aggressively in the house that is occupied by the Sun this year.
There also is danger of accidents, falls, blows, burns and cuts. This is due to
your inclination to take chances and to act hastily or impulsively.
Solar Return Sun opposition or square Solar Return Mars
You will demonstrate more aggressiveness, rashness and lack of patience during
this period. It will more difficult to control your anger when crossed or
frustrated. Try to keep a lid on this so that you don't do or say anything that
you will later regret. The practice of some type of sport or gymnastics would be
very beneficial to maintain your balance. You will get bored with routine,
especially if it is sedentary or slow. You could also be impatient with people
who don't share your way of thinking or even those who just cross your path.
This aspect could bring fights, confrontations, conflicts and ruptures in
relationships in general. In your personal life, there could be jealousy and the
possibility of some kind of scandal because of it. You will be the most
aggressive and intense in that area of your life represented by the house your
Sun is in this year and in the house
occupied by Mars.
You also should be very cautious, because you could be prone to accidents,
blows, falls, or burns. The main reason for that could be your impulsive haste,
your lack of control over your reactions, and your excessive rashness.
Solar Return Sun trine or sextile Solar Return Mars
You will be full of enthusiasm and vitality. Your high energy level will make it
possible for you to set and attain many of your goals during this year. You will
trust and believe in yourself, feel good about yourself and deal constructively
with any situation you encounter. Your positive attitude will enable you to use
your physical energy appropriately. You shouldn't have to deal with many
physical problems this year. Anything that does trouble you will be dealt with
easily and quickly.
This astrological influence emphasizes your leadership ability. It is likely
that you will take on a new position at work, one that lets you work more
independently. You will easily be able to communicate and convey your ideas to
others. Your enthusiasm for your work will be contagious.
In addition, you will show a protective attitude toward your loved ones. You
will be very open and sincere with your friends and will be willing to lend a
helping hand to those who need it. You will also feel quite adventurous, wanting
to travel and explore new and fascinating places.

Problems you may have overlooked in the past could arise and hinder you in your
present business activity. It will be necessary to put your life in order so
that you can have a calmer year.
This aspect can also cause you to be careless, thereby making you subject to
accidents, blows, falls or burns. Be alert and use caution. These impulsive and
rash actions will be your worst enemy. You could also very easily get entangled
in discussions or arguments with others, which might lead to fights or quarrels
that will be difficult to reconcile.
In order to have a good year, you should keep physically active. Practice some
sport or gymnastics, which will use up some of your excess physical energy and
will break up your usual daily routine.
Solar Return Sun semisextile Solar Return Mars
Your enthusiasm will be contagious and you will always be ready for action. You
will receive support and protection from people with certain power in your
environment, although you most likely will not need it. It is advisable to

you to worry. Trust your own resources.

people. Your good humor will be contagious and will create enthusiasm in the
people around you.
But you also will feel a great desire for expansion and growth in your life in
general. You will be concerned with improving your status in life and your
income, increasing your knowledge and enlarging your social world. This
expansion and growth will manifest the strongest in the house influenced by the
Sun during this year. If you have some
legal case pending, it should be resolved very favorably at this time. Justice
will be on your side.
It is possible that you may develop a more philosophical sense of life and may
become interested in studying certain new subjects. You could also have an urge
to take some trips during this year.
A warning: this influence of expansion could also affect your physical body,
bringing a tendency to gain weight. Be sure to maintain a proper diet.
Solar Return Sun opposition or square Solar Return Jupiter
There is a tendency to get involved in projects that could be beyond your
capacity. Be realistic and don't get carried away with your exaggerated
enthusiasm. Your positive attitude and your imagination will increase. This
influence encourages you to undertake tasks or to run risks that you have not
dared to do before. It is important that you don't overextend your energy so
that you will be able to finish what you have started.
You could also become too generous and extravagant. This will be more noticeable
if by nature you are a conservative person. You probably won't pay much
attention to details or the opinions of others, which could lead to some sort of
trouble. You also could become somewhat careless with your paper work and
neglect to do what is expected of you.
This could be reflected in your daily diet as well, which consequently could
lead to gaining weight. It is important to watch your nutrition and your liver.
Don't indulge in food excessively.
Solar Return Sun trine or sextile Solar Return Jupiter
This will be a very favorable and happy year. You will be experiencing some very
positive energy that will enable you to resolve your problems very easily. As a
matter of fact, because of your enthusiasm and optimistic outlook, this could be
a very lucky year. You will be very willing to work hard and eager to take
action with a smile on your face. The area of your life where you will
experience a period of general expansion and growth is to be found in the house
that is occupied by the Sun this year (described in the previous paragraph) and
in the house occupied by Jupiter (described later on). Your social life will
increase and bring you in contact with more influential and powerful people.
If you are involved in some type of litigation or legal process, it will be
settled in your favor. Your sense of justice will increase along with the desire
to acquire more knowledge. You will seek out new experiences and will have a
strong desire to travel this year.
This will be a year to harvest all that was cultivated in previous years.
Solar Return Sun semi-square, quincunx, or sesquiquadrate
Solar Return Jupiter
You could become involved in projects or tasks that go beyond your ability and
energy level. Try to be realistic and sensible. You could be overly optimistic,
thereby unduly minimizing the very real obstacles and situations confronting
you. You should also take care not to neglect any legal matters that need your
attention. Doing so could bring losses, fines, or law suits.
You also run the risk of being physically lazy, not paying much attention to
your diet, which could cause weight gain or problems with the liver.
Solar Return Sun semisextile Solar Return Jupiter
You will have lucky streaks during this year and can rely on the support of
other people. Your optimism and your positive attitude toward life in general
will increase. You probably will have a desire to increase your knowledge about
certain subjects and will learn more by studying. There also is a possibility of
some travel during this year. Don't place too much trust in your imagination,
but use your energies to accomplish the work that is important. Resist the
tendency to look for comfort and ease.
Solar Return Sun in Aspect with Solar Return Saturn
Solar Return Sun conjunct Solar Return Saturn
The weight of responsibilities and obligation could limit your freedom. You will
have to organize your life during this year and tackle situations that you have
put aside before. This astrological conjunction forces you to see things
realistically. It is important that you become aware of this because, the more
realistic you are, the more profit you will gain this year. You will probably
have to forego, or limit, the time you normally spend on amusement and
entertainment. You will have a more serious and responsible attitude; this will
be a year of maturation.
But you could also feel alone and isolated from others, experiencing great
difficulty in expressing your emotions. You may feel inhibited and have doubts
about where you're going, which could bring about distress or depression. It is
important to see things with good humor and optimism, and to work in a
persevering way in order to achieve your goals.
This influence could weaken your energy level, and it is advisable that during
this time you concentrate your efforts on the most necessary and important
Solar Return Sun opposition or square Solar Return Saturn
During this year you could experience obstacles that will be difficult to
overcome. The duties and responsibilities of your daily life will seem to choke
you. On the other hand, you won't be so willing to gratify your every wish. You
will be inclined to take things too seriously and to limit yourself unduly. Try
to keep your good humor in spite of the problems you may have and maintain a
positive and optimistic attitude.
You will find that other people will interfere in your life and those in
authority over you will be difficult. The relationship with your father, or with
some paternal figure in your life, could be very disturbing during this time.
You could feel isolated and alone, generating inner feelings of bitterness and
frustration. The opposition of others won't be easy to deal with and will
require much patience and perseverance on your part.
During this period your physical energy will diminish and you will discover your
own weaknesses and faults. It is important to become aware of them and work on
overcoming them. Don't expect immediate results from your efforts because under
this influence success in any enterprise is delayed, sometimes for a long period
of time. Feelings of frustration could discourage you and lead you to abandon
your objectives. Your consistency and perseverance is being tested.
Solar Return Sun trine or sextile Solar Return Saturn
During this year you will put your life in order. Your energy will be used in a
practical manner and your efforts will be rewarded positively. Your
concentration will increase and you will be very objective and realistic, which
will enable you to advance in a concrete way and on solid ground. During this
time you could review your work habits and decide to discard those that are
negative and incorporate new habits that improve you as a person. One of the
qualities that will stand out is your ability to persevere against any
This astrological aspect brings order into your life. You will be able to
organize your time better and to take advantage of the time that is gained. You
will have a serious and responsible attitude toward the events and happenings
which come your way this year, thereby bringing you support from people in
authority as well as your friends in general.
In addition, because of your great desire at this time for stability in your
life, you might want to invest in furniture or improvements in your home. The
actions you take during this year will benefit you a great deal in later years.
Studies or intellectual work that requires a maximum of concentration and
attention to detail will also be very favored.
You will have strong, consistent physical energy which will make it possible for
you to meet your responsibilities calmly and surely. Remember that your key to
success for this year is discipline, order, and action.
Solar Return Sun semi-square, quincunx, or sesquiquadrate
Solar Return Saturn
Your energy level could fluctuate during this year which could lead to moments
of depression or general fatigue. You will probably have the desire to isolate
yourself to some extent even from a close companion or live-in partner. You
should maintain a positive attitude and face life in a positive way. Otherwise,
you will become very frustrated and unhappy.
It is important for you to develop your sense of responsibility, examining your
life more objectively. The obstacles that you will encounter are due to your own
negligence and disorder. During this time you will experience some opposition or
lack of support from those around you, especially those who are authority or
parental figures for you.
Solar Return Sun semisextile Solar Return Saturn
Stability and perseverance in achieving your objectives will stand out during
this time. You will be more realistic and objective, which will allow you to
organize and direct your energies better. Success this year depends on being
constant in that which you propose to do.

will receive it because of your responsible and trustworthy attitude.
Solar Return Sun in Aspect with Solar Return Uranus
Solar Return Sun conjunct Solar Return Uranus
You will have a strong desire to make some changes and will look for different
ways to break up your daily routine. You will rebel against everything or anyone
who limits your freedom. Your relatives and friends will comment on your being
different, and indeed you will be. Your ideas will surge during this year and
you will have a number of special projects. It is important that you choose them
wisely. You will eliminate old patterns that you have been following until now
and embark on a new course. Your creativity and intuition will be accentuated
during this time.
This astrological aspect will produce a great change and revolution in your
life. Basically, what is happening is the passing away of something that has
prevented you from being free. You will need more freedom and space. As a
consequence, it could cause a breaking off of certain relationships, a change of
job or residence, or a lot of travel. You will be electrified and will feel a
great deal of energy in your body that will need to be burned up. Otherwise, you
will become very anxious and nervous. Be careful, however, as there is also a
tendency to get into accidents. Be especially careful with high speed driving
and with electricity. Don't expose yourself to dangerous conditions.
You will feel a strong attraction to the new and unusual. You will meet new
people and will visit places that you have never been to before. Your reactions
will be unpredictable and changeable, and you won't adhere to any kind of
routine during this time.
Solar Return Sun opposition or square Solar Return Uranus
You will feel dissatisfied with your daily routine and will attempt to change it
in some way. Your behavior probably will be more abrupt and less patient than at
other times. Your reactions will be unexpected and more violent. Watch your
nervous system, since there is a strong tendency to suffer stress during this
time. You will want to cut off many of your social or work connections if you
feel that they limit your freedom in some way, or they are not in accordance
with your new needs. Your relationships could also be affected and could suffer
as a consequence of your need to make changes.
It is important during this time that you are permitted to pursue new
experiences, sever relations with those who are prejudiced, or break traditions
that were limiting your freedom. Your rebellious nature will show itself, and it
is better to leave you a clear path. Most of the events and problems will appear
suddenly, and it is advisable that you respond in a constructive way. Take care
to moderate your reactions to events so that you won't lose control over your
It is also important that you remain flexible to change and not waste your
energies during this year. There is a strong tendency to be too nervous and
impatient, thereby attracting to you violence and accidents. Be careful with
speed and with electricity.
Solar Return Sun trine or sextile Solar Return Uranus
Your creativity will increase considerably and it will be reflected positively
in your activities. During this year you will be attracted to new and out of the
ordinary activities. You will be interested in studying such disciplines as
science, technology, or astrology. Your intuition will increase and will be your
best guide when called on to make decisions. If you are attracted to the occult
sciences, you will spend more time studying these subjects in depth during this
year and also could develop your powers of perception.
You won't feel very comfortable following any kind of routine and will want to
introduce changes in your life. These changes will be very favorable and will
make you feel more free. It will be a year loaded with positive surprises that
will benefit you. Always keep in mind that because of your eagerness to learn,
it is wise to alternate your mental activities with a certain amount of physical
This astrological aspect points to and encourages travel for this year. You
might even decide to get up and go on the spur of the moment without making any
plans. Social contacts and communication also will increase, and you will
benefit from associating more with friends or social groups that you are already
Solar Return Sun semi-square, quincunx, or sesquiquadrate
Solar Return Uranus
You will be very nervous and impatient during this year. You will get tired of
your daily routine which could cause you to make quick and erroneous decisions.
It is important that you moderate your impulses and act intelligently. You will
require more freedom of action and you may become short and abrupt with people
who interfere. You should try to direct your energies consciously, because
reacting explosively will only complicate matters.
You also could be prone to accidents involving speed or electricity. Drive
carefully. It will be very difficult to remain calm and tranquil during this
Solar Return Sun semisextile Solar Return Uranus
Your creativity will increase and you will have new ideas about how to change
your daily routine. This year will offer some very beneficial surprises. Also,
you will feel renewed interest in the occult sciences and the mysteries of life.
Your intuition will increase. It would be a good time to concentrate on
developing it even more.
Solar Return Sun in Aspect with Solar Return Neptune
Solar Return Sun conjunct Solar Return Neptune
Your sensibility and power of perception will increase a lot during this period,
and your first impression of those you meet will usually be right. By following
your intuition you will know in advance what is going to happen. Trust your
inner voice. You also may become interested in many subjects related to the
occult or paranormal and manage to develop deeper perceptions. Some of these
interesting psychic experiences will probably affect you for a long time.
On the other hand, your desire to help other people in a charitable manner will
also increase. You will probably participate in some charitable organization in
On the negative side, this astrological aspect brings a tendency to want to
escape reality. If you have a very difficult life, you could easily acquire some
kind of a bad habit or escapist activity in order to free yourself from
tensions. You must try to control your habits, such as cigarettes, alcohol or
drugs, or even the mere habit of sleeping too much. At times, you may not see
things as clearly as you should. It would be better to confront yourself and
find out who you really are than to try to run away or escape.
Solar Return Sun opposition or square Solar Return Neptune
Your idealism will be accentuated during this time and could cause you to be
deceived by people in certain situations. Try to be realistic and keep your feet
on the ground. There is a tendency to exaggerate reality and to develop
insecurities or groundless fears. Under this influence, you are also inclined to
daydream and to be careless with money and other things of value, which could
expose you to robberies and other losses. You could find yourself in a state of
confusion and uncertainty. This could affect your social or romantic
relationships, bringing disillusionment, but also could very easily make you the
victim. Don't avoid your responsibilities and become aware of your own errors.
Your level of energy will be low, and you could tire easily. Select your efforts
and demands properly. Don't start projects or tasks that from the beginning seem
impossible or very difficult to complete. You may have unusual or very strong
reactions to medications, so don't hesitate to consult your physician as soon as
it appears that the medication is not working properly for you, or the negative
side effects are too great. When possible, use treatments that are very safe and
free of side effects, such as homeopathic remedies, for problems with your
The most adverse effect this influence could produce is becoming rather
noncommittal in dealing with people or issues. You could shy away from problems
and confrontations, which sometimes could complicate matters. This same
noncommittal tendency could generate bad habits or an increase in your
consumption of cigarettes, alcohol or drugs if you are accustomed to using them.
You must keep these habits under control and resist the desire to escape or run
away. One solution could be to strengthen your spirituality, providing you don't
carry it to extremes and become a religious fanatic.
Solar Return Sun trine or sextile Solar Return Neptune
During this year you will develop a great deal of idealism. You will have a very
keen perception that will allow you to judge people correctly on your first
impression and you will be able to sense their reactions in advance. This is a
good year for the studies of metaphysical or occult sciences in general. You
might think about developing your intuition or powers of perception.
You will actively participate in groups or institutions that help people in
need. Your desire to help others will be very strong and will incline you to put
your own interests aside during this year. The activities that you undertake in
this period will give you much pleasure on the spiritual level. Your approach to
God and religion also will be very important. You could get much benefit from
prayer or meditation.
As far as relationships are concerned, you are more likely to be looking for a
platonic relationship rather a romantic one. It's important for you to be
realistic and do your best to see people clearly, with all their faults as well
as virtues, in order to guard against being deceived or hurt.
In addition, if you are devoted to music or the art world, you will have many
moments of inspiration that will benefit you in your work.
During this period you could benefit considerably from being around water. Every
time you become tense or unbalanced, you should go to some place where you can
be near water, such as a river, ocean, or lake. If that is not possible, you
could take long showers or baths to revive your energy.
Solar Return Sun semi-square, quincunx, or sesquiquadrate
Solar Return Neptune
There is a possibility of developing an escapist attitude during this time. Take
care that you don't try to relieve your tensions by acquiring a new bad habit
and consequently become addicted to it. Your strength could weaken a little and
it is important that you don't commit yourself to projects or tasks that are
more than you can handle.
Your sensitivity will also increase, and you can easily be disappointed, hurt,
or victimized. Be aware of your own behavior in order to avoid being deceived or
disillusioned by others.
Solar Return Sun semisextile Solar Return Neptune
Your intuition, imagination, and inspiration will increase. Your idealism will
be balanced and you will feel in harmony with yourself. Trust your perceptions
and your intuition. Your interest in the occult sciences will be renewed and it
would be good time to practice meditation exercises or those that help to
develop your spirituality.
Solar Return Sun in Aspect with Solar Return Pluto
Solar Return Sun conjunct Solar Return Pluto
This astrological aspect will bring profound changes in your life. Hidden,
