2. What location should you use in calculating your solar
You can use your natal location, the location for your
current home, or your current location if you are away from home. The
difference is as follows:
- The natal location is like a progression. You are born with
this series of Solar Returns and there is no modification for free-willed
choices, but the charts do work.
- The Solar Return for your present residence reflects the
changes you have made over the years. If you have moved away, the location and
the orientation of the Solar Return has changed reflecting the internal
- The location for your exact position at the time of the Sun's
return is in my opinion the most accurate because it most closely reflects your
present state of mind and any free-willed choices you have made. It is not
necessary that you remain in this location for the year or even for very long.
You only need relocate long enough to set your intention or about a day.
