***** INTRODUCTION *****      The Solar Return is a chart calculated for the time that the Sun arrives at the exact position of the Sun in your natal chart. That happens once every year around your birthday, but at a different time each year. This chart is calculated for the time of the Sun’s return this year and marks the principal events for the year from birthday to birthday. This report also gives the location of your Solar Return. From this, it can be determined that some places are more favorable than others. With the aid of more than one report you could analyze the changes that are produced in the Solar Return Reports, choosing from different locations where you would want to spend the day.

This report essentially is divided into two parts. The first part analyzes the general external conditions of the year: opportunities and problems that could occur in different areas. For the benefit of students of astrology, the influence of the Ascendant and Midheaven of the return are described as well as that of the Sun and Moon.

The second part analyzes the twelve astrological houses, marking specifically in what area of your life the various astral influences will be manifested, emphasizing your probable responses and inner changes.

To get the most out of this report, it will be necessary to use your own logic and intuition, fitting the descriptions outlined here to your own particular case.

***** FIRST PART *****  Chapter 1:General characteristics of the year. The external conditions.
Solar Return Ascendant Virgo :      Your mental or intellectual activity will increase considerably this year. Your capacity to analyze and your attention to detail  will be greater. You may feel the desire to study something new, or improve the way you do your present work. You may get more interested in service projects which improve the lives of others. You may  concentrate on helping those around you by solving problems, distributing information on health issues,  or getting involved in environmental concerns.  It’s important for you not to neglect your own interests.  However, you will find that, in one way or another, the things you do for the benefit of others will bear fruit for you in the future.

You could get so engrossed in your work that you lose yourself in details. Having a practical outlook is the key to finding good solutions. Don’t spend too much time unnecessarily analyzing data and avoid wasting time on unimportant things. Deal only once with matters that you have to attend to. Then come to a conclusion and don’t turn back again to analyze the topic in question. This only wastes a lot of time, entangles you in your own thoughts and has an immobilizing effect on you. If by nature you are less than meticulous in your work, you may find it easier to organize your thoughts and your work this year. If you are already very detailed and analytical, you should try to take time for some kind of physical activity so that you can remain more balanced between mind and body.

You could become less inclined toward a lot of social activity and be more drawn in and thoughtful. However, it is not good to be too reclusive and isolate yourself too much.  This would give you too much time for self-criticism and dissatisfaction.  You should see that you have a balance again between work and play.

Physically, you could be more nervous than usual which could result in intestinal disorders or other illnesses caused by nervous tension. It could also cause insomnia, brought on by too much mental work and excessive worry. It would be advisable to practice techniques such as Yoga to calm and focus the body and the mind.  Highly competitive activities should be avoided if possible. You also should maintain a balanced diet of foods that are easy to digest. You will be inclined to want to improve your body and your health this year.  It will come naturally to you now, and it would be a good time to go on a diet, if you feel you need to. You could benefit by boning up on subjects such as nutrition and the various kinds of alternate medicine that are available to you. Good health is one of the themes for this year.

During this period you may come in contact with intuitive and sensitive people who will share with you their hunches and visions of things to come. It would be wise for you to listen to what they say to you if you believe they might be relevant and true for you.  Examine them carefully and determine their value.  But, on the other hand, don’t accept everything you hear without question.  Be discerning and evaluate everything.

You will find yourself being more cautious and critical in your relationships. Things that never used to bother you will now become issues for you.  You may not see your partner as clearly as before.  You may find Pisces natives entering your life this year. Although you will find them appealing, you could also be annoyed by their emotional approach.  And you may find them too dreamy and impractical for your Virgoan thinking.

Solar Return MC Gemini:      Your professional activity will be diversified during this period. You will impress others with your intelligence and your ideas. If you are a fairly stable person, this year will be more exciting and productive. If you are bored with your work, you could change jobs, even going into a different kind of work during this year.

This influence favors activities related to communication, short journeys, publications and the gaining of information in general. During this year you may develop your ability as a writer, journalist, speaker, translator or publicist. No matter what you undertake, you will be more involved with expressing your ideas and receiving the ideas of others.

You should be careful not to spread yourself too thin, taking on too many projects though, because then there is the danger of not really accomplishing anything well, or not finishing those you start. Although you may be restless and have trouble staying with any one activity for long, you will use this time well if you complete the projects that are most important and rewarding to you.

You will probably  make several short journeys during this year, some of which may be business related.

Activities with siblings and other close relatives will be important. There is a possibility of doing some type of business with them. Your home life will be more active and busy. You may make some changes there, or even consider moving (if other indications in this report confirm it). You might even be attracted by the idea of living in another country.

Chapter 2: Astrological influence of your personality.Sun in 9th house:      You will have a great desire to travel both mentally and physically this year. On one hand, you will want to increase your knowledge and will undertake intellectual activities or studies that were always of interest to you. On the other hand, you will have a desire to take journeys to foreign countries, enlarging the scope of your understanding.  If you have been thinking about taking a trip, this is the time to set a date and make all the necessary arrangements. If you have ever dreamed of living in another country, this could be the time to do it.

You will probably become more philosophical than usual, wishing to explore abstract ideas and concepts that you have had difficulty comprehending before. Your interest in philosophy, the higher sciences, religion, or languages will be accentuated. You will be attracted to the mystical and occult.  You may search more deeply for a belief system which meets your needs at this time. You may find yourself questioning the beliefs you have held up to now, wondering about their value for you today.  You will favor any teaching which seems to ring true for you at the place where you are now.

Your mental attitude will be very positive, although sometimes you may tend be too optimistic or daring. Be realistic with your plans! This influence will make you think big, and you could overlook concrete matters in the material world. Your boldness and spirit of adventure will also increase. It is advisable that you act wisely, especially in undertaking any business, new investment, or important commitment.

During this year you will find many answers about life. You would benefit by practicing some meditation exercises or by attending some sort of religious or spiritual service. It would also be a good idea to refresh your knowledge of other languages you have studied and to have your bags packed!

Sun conjunction Mercury:      Your ideas will be on the right track this year. You will be able to understand situations better and put things in their proper place. Communication will be important to you and this influence will prompt you to keep your correspondence up to date and to stay in contact with your friends. You probably will take one or several short trips, especially if other astrological factors in this report indicate the same.

Sun opposition Pluto:      You will be confronted with people or powerful situations that will put all of your strength to the test. Some of these situations will be inner conflicts and you will have to fight your own habits or negative memories that are deeply ingrained inside you. This is a year of transformation and profound changes in your personality. Don’t lose your balance and don’t react aggressively or with violence to tense situations. If you undertake some type of therapy or consultation with a professional, you will manage these energies more positively.

The principal conflicts are brought on by people who exercise authority over you. You will fight for power in order to determine who dominates who. You could be confronted with a person who is overbearing or tyrannical, or it may be you who will dominate and be inflexible when dealing with others. This could cause ruptures in relationships and total changes in your social circle. In addition, this influence could cause breakdowns or problems with machines or equipment owned by you and could lead to disputes over the repairs.

On the more negative side, this astrological aspect could expose you to some kind of physical violence. Control your speed and stay away from  people or places that could be dangerous for you.

Sun trine Neptune:      During this year you will develop a great deal of idealism. You will have a very keen perception that will allow you to judge people correctly on your first impression and you will be able to sense their reactions in advance. This is a good year for the studies of metaphysical or occult sciences in general. You might think about developing your intuition or powers of perception.

You will actively participate in groups or institutions that help people in need. Your desire to help others will be very strong and will incline you to put your own interests aside during this year. The activities that you undertake in this period will give you much pleasure on the spiritual level. Your approach to God and religion also will be very important. You could get much benefit from prayer or meditation.

As far as relationships are concerned, you are more likely to be looking for a platonic relationship rather a romantic one. It’s important for you to be realistic and do your best to see people clearly, with all their faults as well as virtues, in order to guard against being deceived or hurt.

In addition, if you are devoted to music or the art world, you will have many moments of inspiration that will benefit you in your work.

During this period you could benefit considerably from being around water. Every time you become tense or unbalanced, you should go to some place where you can be near water, such as a river, ocean, or lake. If that is not possible, you could take long showers or baths to revive your energy.

Chapter 3: The emotional world. Solar Return Moon in Cancer :      You will react to things in a more emotional manner during this period. You will more sensitive to the conditions of your surroundings, wanting to make them more harmonious. Your home life will be especially important for you this year, and your family and loved ones will contribute to your emotional stability.

You might find yourself wanting to discover more about your own roots which could lead you to asking questions about your family background and connections. Your love for your home and loved ones will increase. Should you have conflicts in that area, they can be more easily resolved during this year. But you shouldn’t place all of your attention on your home life, causing you to neglect other important areas.

There is also a possibility for improving conditions in your physical environment, making improvements and repairs in your home. You may buy new furniture or redecorate your home in order to create an atmosphere of greater harmony and warmth. If this is not possible, you may think about moving.

Your emotions will be important during this period and you should express them freely. You also could get hurt easily and shouldn’t take to heart the comments or reactions of others. This astrological influence causes you to be more dependent on your environment and to the conditions under which you work and live.  It is also advisable to pay attention to your diet and to get some rest during times of tension so that your emotional imbalance doesn’t harm your digestion.

Solar Return Moon in 10th house:      You could be more involved with the public in some way this year,  but it may not necessarily increase your popularity or approval rating. The acceptance or rejection of your work will depend in great measure on the conclusions drawn in the following paragraphs. Although you may receive some measure of fame and recognition, this astrological position does not promise any long-lasting results. The achievements you have could be short-lived. These ensuing changes you make could be made with your emotions, rather than your rational mind. Therefore, they could be incorrect or unwise decisions. You must try to be more rational. Don’t let yourself get carried away and act too impulsively when you have to make important decisions.

You will count on the support of people in authority to help your achieve your goals.  Women, especially, can be of assistance to you at this time.

Moon conjunction Venus:      Your social life will flourish this year. You will express your feelings with much warmth and caring which will cause others to respond to you in like fashion. If you are unattached, there will probably be a good opportunity to begin a love relationship. If you are already involved with someone, it will be a very positive year for giving and receiving love. If you have plans for marriage, this could  be the year for it!

You will feel a great desire for pleasurable activities in general.  Be careful not to neglect your diet, paying special attention to your craving for food, especially sweets.

During this year you could redecorate or beautify your home. You will need a harmonious and soothing physical and emotional atmosphere around you. Existing problems in your family relationships can be resolved now, due to your more peace-loving and sensitive attitude. The relationship with your mother and with women in general will be very positive.

This astrological influence gives you the desire to spend money more freely. You will need to curb your spending desires and not yield to temptations to overspend. If you don’t control your search for pleasures, you could find yourself in debt by the end of the year.

Moon square Jupiter:      You will want to indulge in excesses and extravagant behavior this year. You could be more than usually generous and kind with others, but you will need to be noticed and appreciated for it. This could cause problems. Your judgment won’t always be good, and you will have many moments of indecision and doubt concerning your actions.

You will be less conscientious in handling liabilities and debts and may be careless and forgetful in paying your bills or fulfilling contractual obligations. You may look to others close to you to protect you and help you out of any difficulty. You might also  be attracted to games of chance or speculative business opportunities. It is important for you to be fiscally responsible at this time because, if you don’t control your tendency to be too casual with money matters, you could experience financial failure or even scandal. Don’t neglect any legal obligations at this time. This astrological aspect could bring loss through judgments or litigation, including an unfortunate divorce decree.

Your negligence could also apply to your physical body.  Be careful about what you eat and get plenty of exercise. If you don’t, you could gain unwanted weight. In general, you will tend to feel happy and carefree and will probably select those kinds of people as friends and companions.

Moon trine Uranus:      You will be on the lookout for people who will interest you and help you to escape your daily routine during this year. You will have the desire to move in a more independent way and will want to express your emotions freely. The changes that will come will be very beneficial and will help you to achieve the freedom that you will need and seek out.

Your imagination, creativity, and intuition will increase. You will conceive very original, new ideas that will be of much benefit to you. You might even have an idea for an invention, particularly something which could be used in the home.

Your emotions will be changeable and sudden which could give you the desire and the opportunity to get into an unusual relationship of some kind which could change your life considerably. If you are in a stable relationship during this time, you might want to make some changes which you believe will make your relationship more fulfilling. It is important that you make some changes in  your daily routine. If you act in a intelligent and organized way, your changes will be beneficial and constructive.

If you participate in some group activity, there is a possibility of you becoming the leader and wanting to propose some changes in its structure. There also could be unexpected changes in your home environment that will help you to live with more comfort and freedom.

Report Order FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions related to Report Orders

Reports are generally delivered within 24 hours of order placement, or if there were missing details, within 24 hours of the receipt of full information needed to generate the report(s). Occasionally, an order might arrive a little late if there was an unexpected influx of orders, for example, a power outage, etc.

However, if 24 hours have passed and you don’t find an email from Kristen – Cafe Astrology (reports in your inbox or spam folder, then please write and let Kristen know. Please understand that we make every effort to send your order, and if this is impossible, you will receive a refund.

Some people have problems with email delivery, particularly with emails that have attachments. In these cases, we can put the report(s) in a secure place online for download. If you prefer this method regardless, write Kristen an email with the request or add the request in the notes with your order placement.

By default, Kristen sends report orders to the email address associated with Paypal. That’s the email that comes in with your payment and order details. You can specify another email address if you’d like, but keep in mind that a Paypal receipt email is automatically sent to the customer as soon as payment is made, and that email will go to the email address registered with Paypal.

No, you should specify that the birth time is unknown rather than guess it so that the report can be created specifically for unknown birth times.

Although unknown birth time reports can be a little shorter than the reports with known birth times, they only include information that is known. Most importantly, the ambiguous information is excluded from the report.

Some people feel that they will get more for their money if they guess at the birth time, as they assume that more interpretations in the reports are better. However, it’s much better to have a shorter report with accurate interpretations than a longer report with a mix of accurate and inaccurate interpretations! In this case, less is definitely more.

Yes, absolutely. The start date of a report can be any date in the past or the future.

In the case of a Solar Return, the start date will be on or in the two days surrounding the birth month and day due to the nature of this type of forecasting technique, but the year of the report can be any year in the future or past.

In the case of the Time Line report, the software only allows the start date to be the first of any given month, for example, May 1st, 2017.

No, the shopping cart used on the site is run by Paypal, but all the usual payment options are included so that you can use credit cards, debit cards, and the like. There are different shopping cart technologies available to sellers, and Cafe Astrology has selected the Paypal shopping cart as its solution. All payment details are sent to Paypal and not to Cafe Astrology. Paypal sends Cafe Astrology an email with each order that lists the order details and email address, not any payment information. We are not set up as a merchant at this time.

Reports are based on your birth time, while horoscopes are based on solar charts. A solar chart places the Sun’s sign on the Ascendant, and most people don’t have the same Sun and Ascendant in their natal charts. While a solar chart is a valid chart and certainly has its merits, the natal chart should be the first you look at.

For reports, the default house system used is Placidus. However, you can request another house system for your order (example, Koch, Equal, Whole Sign, etc.).

It’s important to note that there are many different valid methods for arriving at various astrology calculations, including the Zodiac (Sidereal or Tropical), system of houses used, method of progressing the houses in the case of progressions, use of current or birth location for certain forecasting techniques, and many more. It’s rare that an astrology software program is making wrong calculations. Typically, discrepancies have to do with different systems and not about one or the other being “wrong.” When the Ascendant differs, it’s usually about an ambiguous time zone since we must use the time zone that was in effect at the time of birth and historical time zone information is not perfect. It is simply not true that any one particular software program has every historical time zone correct, although many efforts are made to get them right.

If you receive unexpected results, please send an email to Kristen who can look into the matter and explain the reasons for it, such as an ambiguous time zone or a particular calculation method. It’s important to provide as many details as possible.

The Solar Return chart is drawn for the date and time of the return of the Sun to its exact position at birth, and not to the birthday itself. The Sun returns to its birth position once a year on or near the day of birth, and rarely coincides with the time of birth. For example, if my birthday is September 2nd, 1970 @ 5:00 PM, my Solar Return could be September 1st, 2016, @ 4:24 AM one year, September 2nd, 2017, @ 1:22 AM the next, and so forth. If the birth data is entered correctly on the report, you can expect the Solar Return date and time to be accurate.

Report orders are promised within approximately 24 hours from the time of order placement and complete information required to create the report. Kristen sends out reports by email and she is at the report computer typically eight hours a day. Because orders and responses come in from all around the world at all hours of the day and night, rush orders are not possible. However, to prevent delays, making certain that you’ve included all information requested and that it’s accurate will prevent the need for email back and forths that will cause delays.

Typically orders are emailed out within 12 hours or so, but they do sometimes come closer to 24 hours. The most common reason is a sudden influx of orders. There are times when more than the usual number of orders come in and it takes much longer to complete orders.

Within 24 hours of order placement, you should receive an email from Kristen, either as a request for further information or clarification if there is missing/unclear information or with a report attachment. If the information is incomplete, Kristen will request it from you and you will receive your order within 24 hours of receipt of the full information necessary to create your report.

If you are buying more than one report in one order, you can enter birth information only once if you prefer. However, it’s important to note that some reports require different or additional information, so be sure to supply all that is needed to create your reports.

Solar Return Dates

Further clarification of Solar Return dates: A Solar Return chart is cast each year for the time that the Sun returns to its exact position at birth. My birthday is September 18th, so my Solar Return charts will always start on or around that date each year. (It may occur on September 17th or 19th some years – each year, the exact time and date will be different).

A Solar Return report draws up a Solar Return chart for the birthday, and that chart is representative of the year following that date. It’s important to note that unless you were born on January 1st, Solar Return reports do not cover calendar years. So, if your birthday is April 15th, for example, a Solar Return chart drawn for April 2019 will cover the year from April 2019 to April 2020. If your birthday is November 20th, the Solar Return chart cast on November 20th, 2019 will cover the birthday year spanning from November 2019 to November 2020.

If it’s June 2018 and I want to place an order for my upcoming Solar Return year (that is, a report that would cover the year from September 2018 to September 2019), I would specify that I want a report for “2018-2019,” or I would write that I want the report to “start September 2018”. The location of the Solar Return chart would then be the location I expect to be in September 2018.

Similarly, if my birthday were April 10th, my Solar Return charts will always occur in April and the periods covered for Solar Return reports will always be the year from one April to the next April.

Which Solar Return?

Which Solar Return (Birthday Forecast) report is best for you?


Many of our customers order more than one Solar Return report for the same forecast period, as each report offers a different perspective on the same period. The Journeys Solar Return report is perhaps the most detailed and examines the most factors. However, some may find this report too detailed. As well, it is highly analytical, examining both negative and positive potentials rather bluntly at times, making it best for students of astrology. The Solar Return Yearly Forecast report tends to be more focused on potential events than the other reports. The Planets in Solar Return report takes a psychological and behavioral approach to the forecast period, offering strategies for dealing with the planetary influences of the Solar Return chart. This report is most recommended for growth-oriented individuals and those not familiar with astrology, although it’s also excellent for those who have knowledge of astrology. The Merriman’s Solar Return report adds forecasting for specific dates. Like the Journeys, it has some blunt descriptions of negative potentials. If this makes you nervous, it’s better not to order either of these reports.

If you’d like to compare the four reports, I have put all four Solar Return report samples on one page here: Sample Solar Return Reports.
