A Solar Return Report is a forecasting technique that uses the time the Sun reaches the exact position of the Sun in your birthchart each year. This occurs on the same day, the day before or the day after so do not be concerned if your report does not start on the same day as your actual birthday.
This new Chart sets the scene for 12 months. The symbolism of these new planetary positions shows a new theme that could operate in your life for this 12 month period. There is often a 1-3 month lead-up to your Solar Return and possibly a 1-3 month phase-out.
Meditating for 15 minutes prior to your Solar Return is a good ritual. You can focus on what you would like to achieve and tap into the universal law of attraction to manifest positive energies.
It is important to note that the interpretations provided will not automatically imply that what is written will happen the report just highlights possibilities. When reading your report, if you see that good things can happen, you have to actively concentrate on these areas of your life as described. What this means is that things won't just fall in your lap, you have to make them happen. Conversely, if you read that there could be problems, by being armed with this knowledge, you can be proactive to avoid any potential difficulties.
The good news is that you have the road-map of what areas of your life should be the focus of your attention for the next 12 months to aid your development and evolutionary growth.
This report comes from Cosmic Patterns, and the interpretations are written by Art Poppe, who is a dedicated researcher, full-time astrological consultant and writer.
As you will notice with all of the reports on offer, each Astrologer brings forth their own understanding and explanation of how the planetary energies operate. Each report seems to incorporate a new or different perspective, and focuses on a variety of astrological techniques. In this case, Art Poppe investigates the Solar Return on its own, but also shows the interaction of the Solar Return planets that link to birthchart houses.
