“Redefining One’s Priorities Reinstates the Sun in the Solar Return Second House!”

Delineating a chart is like reading a well written mystery novel giving one many clues and keeping one’s interest involved until the very end to see if one has discovered the culprit among the characters.  The joy and satisfaction does not come from just the end of the story, but with the journey itself and the many discoveries along the way.  This I found very true when it comes to delineating a solar return chart, especially one where the Sun is located in the second House of the return.  I have always associated the Sun to Mercury in that it is neither benefic nor malefic until its associations and aspects with the other planets are defined.  The Sun may be comfortable or exalted in a sign, but because of its association and situation it finds itself in, will not be operating at its fullest potential, or vice versa. After many years of observation with the Sun in this position, I have come to the conclusion that the chart indicates a redefining of the individual’s priorities during the indicated year concerned, not necessarily benefic or malefic.  The action of the individual is one of independence from the influence of any individuals, events, circumstances and situations that makes the individual feel hemmed in.  

As the financial downturn does not seem to be making any progress in getting better, a fellow co-worker related his plans for the coming year which included retirement.  He felt the situation the company was experiencing would in time force him to retire, and he wished to do it on his own terms.  This made me wonder if the Sun was in his solar return second house in the year in question, and not surprisingly it was.  The Sun was conjunct Pluto trine Jupiter which indicated the situation was more thought out then he related to me, of beating the company to the punch.  Using Morin’s method of deduction and working with the essential dignities, one realizes he had given it a thorough going over in his mind before deciding on the final outcome.  Although I feel he will come out of it with flying colors, I don’t think his main concern was financial, it was more important that he was the deciding factor, of the destiny that was ahead of him.  His priorities have taken a turn around, and those things which were once very important took a back seat to the new vision he had.

In delineating a Solar Return chart, one always needs to consider the natal chart at the same time.  The natal indicates the assets and talents we came into this world with, and the Solar Return is how we use these talents in the New Year.  Our accomplishments depend on how well we use the gifts the Universe has endow us with, and with what degree of determination we have to bring it into reality.  What house the solar return second is in the natal, will determine the area the individual has financial anxieties.  Normally the Sun in this house does not necessarily indicate an increase or decrease of funds.  The individual may feel under paid and unappreciated during the year. The sun in the solar return second creates a need to reassess our standing among our peers and the amount of respect we feel we deserve.  This is the year where it is essential for the individual to reassess what will bring happiness and satisfaction.  With the Sun in the Solar Return Second, it emphasizes and reinstates our obligation to redefine our priorities if we are to fulfill our wishes and dreams in the coming year.

    I have my SR chart with Sun and Venus in the SR 2nd house in Virgo 3 degrees apart with the POF there as well. Since I am also Leo rising in the SR chart I know the Sun figures even more prominently. SR Jupiter is conjunct my SR midheaven too. So I am thinking this will be a good year financially at work. Every possible malefic is located in a SR cadent house. It’s a nocturnal chart with the moon in Cancer. My work is 12th house oriented.

    So far so good and I am looking forward to this year.

        My software is acting up for Hellenistic astrology but it occurred Aug 26, 2011 2011 in Orlando, FL with a Leo 5 degree rising. POF 12 degrees Virgo
        (conjunct my natal Jupiter 10 degrees Virgo). My SR midheaven is Taurus 5 degrees with SR Jupiter Taurus 10 degrees and PO Excellence Taurus 12
        degrees. I profect to a Libra rising this year so Venus rules my year with an 8th house focus.
        My Trigon rulers are Venus for all but one planet and that is Neptune in
        Libra with Trigon ruler currently Saturn.
