As is tradition, Theresa asked me to do her solar return chart for this year.
If you recall from earlier solar returns, you’ll remember that Theresa has had failing health these past couple of years. This year seems to maintain the status quo, with Venus as lord of the first peregrine in Leo. Venus is unafflicted by other planets, which is good, but she’s not being assisted by another benefic planet either. I would suggest Theresa be extra careful, the fifth house is usually associated with fun and games and such, but it could show injuries and accidents due to those games. The threat of this doesn’t appear to be very real, though, as Venus is unafflicted.
The lord of the sixth house is Jupiter who resides in Taurus and is received by the lord of the first. This does not bode well for health in the coming year as this reception signifies the lady of life allowing the lord of sickness to do what he wants in her house. While Jupiter is naturally benefic, he is afflicted by an opposition to Saturn which makes him less capable of doing good which could wind up being dangerous to our native. It looks as if health continues to be a challenging issue this year and continues to worsen. Specifically, I’m concerned about hypothyroidism or other such disorders in the glands within and around (lymph nodes) the neck.
Finances for the next year are signified by Mars. Mars is peregrine and in the 12th house, which is not a good sign for wealth in the upcoming year. Saturn on the 2nd house cusp shows that the budget will likely be tightened more. This Mars also shows our natives prospective relationships for the next year, and its unfortunate station will show in that area of life as well; most likely showing long distance relationships that don’t work out with Mars being in a cadent house.
Career is shown by the Moon, and it doesn’t seem to be very beneficial either. She is peregrine and in a cadent house, and she is also afflicted by Mars. This can show difficulty in getting ideas or projects completed or recognized as well as an inability to acquire a good station or receive “brand recognition”.
The solar return’s ascendant is in Therea’s natal Ninth house, and could show a more prominent focus on ninth house matters this year. This may give Theresa renewed desire to learn and study subjects she may have cast aside, or it could convince her to become a nun. More likely, though, it will give her more energy to complete astrological study and check off a few goals from her list. Her natal Ascendant is in the solar return chart’s Fourth house, which can show a renewed focus on the home and domestic matters (she currently has several projects underway as she’s attempting to remodel parts of her house) or perhaps an interest in preparing her will or other posthumous preparations.
This year also marks Theresa’s 12th house profection, meaning that twelfth house affairs will come more to the front this year. This could result in increased isolative and depressed tendencies which should be avoided. Jupiter is lord of her twelfth in the third, showing an emphasis on communicating and could show a return to her work in writing. Her Sun is also in her twelfth house, which could show some contemplation being had about what she wants to do in life and how she feels she could accomplish it.
Many well wishes to Theresa in the coming year, take care of yourself and keep your strength up!!
