9. Can you use a Solar Return chart for timing?

Generally, the Solar Return is not the best timing tool. You will need to use it in combination with transits, progressions and solar arcs. However, there are a few things you can watch for.

  • Look for the transits of the outer planets over an angle or over a house cusp. (This works with the Placidus house system.) The interpretation might change or an event might occur. This might even help you with rectification since the transits of the angles tend to be pronounced.
  • You can also progress the Solar Return Moon according to its speed on the day of the SR. Usually this equals about a degree per month.
