“Neptune in the Solar Return Second House; Aspirations, Disillusionment or Vision”

Being a student of astrology when one sees injustice in a situation, one wonders what purpose the Universe has for the individual and whether the conditions, reasons and possible outcome would show up in an astrological chart.  This question came to mind recently when a fellow co-worker was being mistreated by his superior with a reduction of salary and more work.  I was certain doing a horary chart would describe the situation, but would it give an answer to the outcome of his troubles?  Or could the chart give clues to the different avenues of approach one needed to work with?  As I am more at home with solar returns I decided to set up a chart for the coming year to find out what I would see about his circumstances and finances.  To my surprise and delight, not only did it show the conditions as they are, but in my opinion gave clues that would help the problem come to a better finale.  It gave me the keys to what the individual would need to do to rise above what was happening in his life, and at the same time venture into new areas for exploration.

When one first looks at the solar return chart, the planet Neptune stands out in the second house of finance indicating monetary uncertainty caused possibly by the individual or by outer circumstances.  Looking at the lord of the sign of Neptune and its aspects, one surmises that the fears, frustration and anxiety is more in the mind and emotions of the individual, rather then the surrounding reality.  I am not saying the period is not difficult, but the fears are guiding him into a survival of the fittest state of mind which will be the individual’s saving grace to move forward to success and growth.  Frustrations comes from the Sun in the second house expressing his need to improve his self confidence, his feelings of being underpaid, a need to reassess his worth, his feelings of instability and his need to map out a plan for financial security for himself and his love ones, especially his children is evident.  Morin always places emphasis on any planet conjunct an angle, and the natal house placement of the solar return ascendant and midheaven.  Solar return Pluto conjunct the first and on the angle, creates a need for transformation, reinvention, power, strength, and the motive and determination for real change.  With a definite attitude adjustment for the better, and a possible career and company change, one or both is in the air. 

Another important factor is if the natal midheaven conjuncts the solar return ascendant, as it does in the individual’s chart, it brings optimism, hope and improvement in his status and career.  In this case, whether the situation at work will improve or an outside position is offered is still in the offerings.  The real cliff hanger is that Pluto is forcing his hand in making him take more control of his destiny, by no longer going with the flow, but using his talents and assets.  In his natal chart his intuition and instincts are highly emphasized and his ability to see situations in an unusual light, especially when it comes to investments and taking chances is to his benefit.  Not allowing fears or thoughts to complicate his first impressions and intuitions will be to his advantage as Pluto works its magic.  In the third house with Jupiter, the conscious and unconscious levels of thoughts and his ability to think in and out of the box will be his key to accomplishing what he desires.  He needs to avoid the anxiety and nervousness activated by Uranus which will cloud his judgments in gathering information and facts before making a final conclusion on any matter at hand.

My final thoughts on Neptune in the solar return second house are that it does encompass aspirations, disillusionments, visions and intuitions.  Whether we use one or all of them is depended upon the individual charts and their aspects.  Neptune in the second is the planet of hopes and wishes to be accomplished, such as becoming self-employed, doing major home improvements, saving for the future, et cetera.  The fears, frustrations, and anxiety are created from the limited and restricted financial funds available to work with at this time.  The planet’s energy is showing its handiwork with the recent recession with many companies cutting salaries and hours.  The global consciousness is showing up in individual’s charts by representing and expressing the global fears and anxiety as their own doing.  Understanding how Neptune works, and making positive and realistic moves towards our goals and dreams is our hope for smooth sailing, as the waters are not as rough and dangerous as they appear.
