Progressions, Solar Returns
How do you make your solar return chart?
The solar return chart is an astrology chart that’s calculated for the exact moment the Sun returns to its “natal” or birth position. This happens at the exact time of your birth each year when the Sun returns to the same position in the sky that it was in when you were born. The solar return chart is an excellent tool to help you assess and predict the themes that will arise for you during your next “solar year,” which is the 12 months that happen from one birthday to the next.
When you are casting a solar return chart, it’s less important how you spend your birthday and more important where you spend it. In fact, you would get an entirely different chart if you celebrated your birthday in a different location. For example, if you were born in London on August 10, 1989, at 8 p.m., and you are planning to celebrate your 30th birthday in Mexico City or Paris, you can input the exact date and time of your birth into an astro chart calculator for both locations. By doing this, you can compare the two charts and see which outcome you prefer for the next 12 months. This way, you can make an informed decision about where to celebrate your birthday based on your desired outcome.
Overall, solar return charts are a useful tool for gaining insight into the themes that may arise during your upcoming solar year. By casting a chart for different locations and comparing the outcomes, you can make an informed decision about where to spend your birthday and ensure that you get the most out of your upcoming solar year.
