Each year, right around the time of your birthday, the Sun returns to the exact position it was in at the moment of your birth. This is considered to be your own personal New Year, and it’s known as the Solar Return.
Astrologers have found that if you study the positioning of all the planets at that moment — their relationships to each other and their placements in the signs — you can gain insight into the upcoming year, until the Sun returns again.
As you may have noticed, most people tend to feel pretty good on their birthdays, and that’s because of the positioning of the Sun. It’s a time of gifts, celebrations, milestones and reuniting with old (and new) friends and family.
It’s a time to rejoice in all that’s happened in the past and to prepare for what’s to come. And the Solar Return reading (also known as a Solar Resolution) can help you prepare by providing explanations and advice about the influences of the year to come.
More than a typical astrology forecast, the Solar Return is all about you and your place in this world. It offers a revealing look into the progression of your life and how you can make the most of the events to come — it’s a great way to celebrate your future!
