As the financial atmosphere still seems a bit shaky and apparently recovery seems further away than most people were hoping for, the need to secure our own future is eminent in all our thoughts. Even those who should have no apparent reason to be worried about their situation are giving second thoughts to their circumstances and are cautious of what the future has in store. All are affected by the lingering cloud of the unknown and the unrest that seems to prevail everywhere, and the ineffective decisions that have so far not been able to turn the financial situation around. More and more people are beginning to see the light that they need to take control of their own destiny in hand, if they are to avoid some of the trials and tribulations that may be in store for all of us. Some of us in anticipating what the future has in store are making decisions to change our course, before we are pushed into it. This was in the message I had received from one who sees the handwriting on the wall, and felt she needed to do something before the wall crumbles in front of her. Realizing she had no other choices she began using astrology to pick the appropriate time in making her decisions to decide when the changes should come about to bring the best results.
For the coming year she saw that she had the Sun in the solar return tenth house and began to make her plans. As with all major decisions, no matter how good one is at delineating a chart, doubt comes in and a second opinion is always needed to calm the fears when making a radical decision or change. There have been many times I have sought a second opinion, as I have never felt I could be objective in delineating a chart for myself. I am always hesitant in advising a major change, as I have always felt the individual needed to make that decision from the surrounding circumstances that may appear on the horizon. I do not believe our life is predestined in such a way that we lose the freedom of choice. I believe we can make it better or worst what lies in our path, by the choices we make along the way. Seeing that the decision was already made, I felt better and more comfortable about giving my opinion on the chart. Seeing her chart was exciting for me, as this was the first time I have seen a chart in a pattern similar to my own. Marc Edmond Jones categorizes natal charts into seven zodiacal patterns with certain traits and characteristics. I felt I was among a kindred spirit, especially with both of ourNeptune’s in our natal first, given both of us an open door to all the traits and the characteristics this planet encompasses.
I began to wonder if even with our differences, and in the end, the outcomes may turnout to be different, would we experience and anticipate each of the situations in similar ways? With this thought along side the axiom of Morin, that to predict a major event, one needed at least another aspect to prove the indication was feasible. With the Sun in the solar return tenth house, exact on the midheaven and with Uranus and Pluto near the angles, an important and active year is indicated. Sun in the tenth indicates the right time for career decisions and changes and the possibilities of becoming self-employed. The solar return Sun square the solar return Uranus which is in opposition to Pluto, indicating an end of one situation and transforming it to something very different, giving new life and new energy to that which once seem ordinary. With a full Moon in the solar return, the individual can expect a lot of hard work and surprises, and at the same time a period of satisfaction, accomplishment and joy.
Working with an old traditional timing method called profection, the individual focus for the year is the tenth house with the ruler Mercury located in the solar return tenth, confirming the importance of tenth house matters in the coming year. One of the unfortunate things about the Sun in the tenth, unlike Jupiter or the Moon, if one can call it inopportune, is that everything good or bad that happens to the individual is through their own efforts, and not depended on others or blessings laid in front for their use. The person needs to become aware and attentive of the circumstances, the surrounding influences, and to be able to improvise at a moment’s notice, to take advantage of the benefits in the coming year and to be able to reach the goals it has set for itself. My conclusion to the solar return tenth house Sun is good and beneficial for tenth house matters, but the outcome is depended on the individual’s ability to work with the assets given to him, and the person’s accomplishment and success is well earned. The real importance is not the end result, but how we work with what we have, that will give us the confidence and knowledge to a successful completion of our hopes and dreams where the tenth house is concerned.
