This post is about solar return Sun in houses.

Solar return is a chart that is calculated for the moment when natal Sun returns to the same place for each year. Sometimes it can be the day before or after your birthday. Solar Return is a vital energy that aims to direct you towards your priorities for that year. Through this chart, we see perspective for that year, potentials and areas of life that will be primary for you.

The mistaken belief is that solar chart should bring you something because it represents an inner experience and a yearly theme of focus, not events during a given year. On the other hand, it must be combined with transits that together create external circumstances that are changeable and that actualize solar Sun during certain period of time in that year.

Notes for solar return chart

What needs to be considered is whether one sign or element is emphasized and how it matches energy of your natal chart. In the rest of this post, you will be able to understand what it means when solar return Sun falls into a specific house. If other solar return planets fall on planets in your natal chart, it is certainly very important. If planets return on the same degree and sign it is called the return of the planet which marks natural expression.

If the solar return chart is similar to natal chart energy, it flows easily and these are years when we enjoy life and feel supported. If solar return chart is very different compared to energy quality of natal chart, it may indicate a problem, health condition or issue according to house where solar Sun is located.

House where Sun is in solar return chart is an area where you will be visible and shine, if effort is put in and lessons of that year are mastered. For example, if Sun is in tenth house, it can be a year of career success, achievement and goals, but everything should be connected to house of natal Sun. If it is in your natal chart in third house, you can achieve success in writing and communication. Where solar Sun is there is what we want to achieve that year.

Prejudice about solar return chart

Frequent question I get is whether one should travel to another place in order to neutralize energy of a “bad year”. Firstly, bad or good year doesn’t exist a priori because none of it is pre-defined for you. We ourselves create both good and bad years. What is important is not what you have, but what you do with it.

You can calculate solar return chart for the place you travel to for example for your birthday, but in the end the solar chart calculated for the place where you stay for most of the year always prevails. The following is an informative analysis according to position of solar Sun in houses. Of course, it will be necessary to connect this with Sun sign, with aspects, ruler and its position.


Sun in the first house

This position represents focus on personality and need to follow impulses and instincts.
