POSITION OF THE ANNUAL ASCENDANT
The solar return ascendant gives information about the annual atmosphere from a birthday to the one next year.
The sign of the annual ascendant is very important because it shows what we have done during the whole year (experiences, psychological consequences).
With a Solar Return Ascendant in Aquarius, this year you will open up yourself to a new group of friends or new technologies (computers, internet, aerospace science, energies, etc.).
You have many projects and your friends help and support you.
If those projects aren't too utopian, you may see the consequences of them during the year.
Otherwise you will have to get back to basics and you will still appreciate the new friendships.
This year we can free ourselves from our chains (virtual or real) and become independent, in a way we are learning to handle things on our own.
The house (or sector) where the Solar Return Ascendant is determines how it is going to be connected to your life all year long.

It's a free will year, you will show your personality.
Consequently you should always express yourself and say what you think in order to show what you are worth.
You may also change the way you look or just buy some new clothes.
Actually you need to take care of yourself, either with an appropriate therapy
or by focusing on your activities.
In general it's an important year where you can experience different things with your natal chart.

You will try to find your path and to stick to it.
Indeed you may have to learn from your past lessons (this life and the past lives).
Get some help from a psychologist or a therapist.

POSITION OF THE ANNUAL MIDHEAVEN
During a solar return, the Midheaven shows how, during a solar year, to build a social or professional growth (as much positive as negative) according to the transits.
The sign in which the Midheaven is shows how skilled we are in order to reach our goals.
Midheaven in Sagittarius
This year your goals are full of idealism and conquest spirit.

If we had any problems last year...they may be resolved this year.
The house the midheaven is in will show what kind of events we will go through.

In this situation you will focus on reaching your goals.
As long as you keep doing what you were doing the previous year, you may reach them and climb the social ladder.
Otherwise you may fall very very low.
Usually this position brings a possibility of social fulfilment and evolution of destiny.
THE ANNUAL SUN
Given that we focus on the solar return just as much as the zodiac in the natal chart to build an annual chart, the solar return Sun always keeps the same sign.
Its interpretation in houses will help us understand the part it plays in the solar year.
Its aspects to other planets are also very important: dissonant aspects show how it may become weaker, harmonic aspects will show how much it can be improved all year long.
Annual Sun in House VI
This year you will focus on work and will go through trials and tribulations of life.
You may have issues with your health if Mars, Saturn, the Black Moon or Pluto send a dissonant aspect to the Sun.

Its aspects to other planets are also very important: they tell you about potential difficulties or good news you may go through all year long.

In a natal chart, the position of Mercury is more interesting in houses than in signs.
Indeed since the planet doesn't go far from the Sun, they are often both either in the same sign or Mercury will be in the previous or the next sign.
Its position in houses gives us information about the way we should communicate and how to use our intellect all year long.
Its aspects to other planets help us know about opportunities or difficulties we will have all year long.

Since this planet moves slowly (one zodiac sign every seven years), we don't give much importance to its position in signs and we will focus on its position in houses.
We will do the same thing for Neptune and Pluto.
For those three planets the interpretation of the aspects of natal planets are like a background for the transits and they can last up to two years.
We have to put things into perspective though when it comes to the relevance of those interpretations.
As for the past transits, it's best to minimize their interpretation that usually is a consequence of past events.
However transits happening during the solar year are very important and will have a strong influence on the solar year.
If you have read the book "Astroquick Astral Forecast" you should now focus on matching transits with their exact dates (you can find them at the beginning of the paragraph).

Most of the time the annual ascendant changes sign, the twelve houses of the solar Return will change their superimposition with the twelve houses of the natal chart through the years.
Given that the interactions between those houses are numerous, they can be interpreted differently.
Don't take what you will read in the next four paragraphs literally.
However it may confirm or contradict what you had read in the previous paragraphs and may also give you an extra information.
House II in natal house II (and House VIII in natal house VIII)
With such a superimposition, during this solar year you will have the same experiences as you had in your natal chart (check out the analysis of the planets in houses II and VIII in your natal chart).
This shows an evolution through the year anyway, a connection with gain and loss, crisis bringing changes, and death (symbolic or real) that brings rebirth.
House III in natal house III (and House IX in natal house IX)
With such a superimposition, the way you live during this phase will pretty much be the same you used to live in your natal chart (check out the analysis of the planets in houses III and IX of your natal chart).
Now you have to see how you can make those events positive through this evolution).
House V in natal house V (and House XI in natal house XI)
This year you will love the same way as you used to when you were born.
That's why during this solar year you will live pretty much the same experiences represented in your natal chart (check out the analysis of the planets in houses V and XI in your natal chart).

House VI in natal house VI (and House XII in natal house XII)
This year you will love the same way as you used to when you were born.
That's why during this solar year you will live pretty much the same experiences represented in your natal chart (check out the analysis of the planets in houses VI and XII in your natal chart).
