Prediction Example Chart: O. J. Simpson’s 2007 Solar Return.
With the natal chart of O. J. Simpson now covered, we can move into the process of developing predictive charts. The chart presented here is a precession-corrected Tropical Solar Return (which is the positional equivalant of a Sidereal Zodiac chart only with Tropical signs and degree positions). The natal chart is shown in the inner area, the solar return transits in the outer area.
The 2007 Solar Return Chart, precession corrected
This Solar Return occured two months before O. J. Simpson tracked down some “friends” who were selling autographed items that supposedly were taken from him. Rather than have the police raid the sales-site and determine that he, in fact, owned the property. O.J. took matters into his own hands. With the help of some friends, he crashed into a hotel room and took his own material. Money had been important to Simpson because the family of his former wife’s slain boyfriend had a court order that was intended to retrieve a great deal of money from Simpson, money which he had never paid to the family. Let us look at the promise of this Solar Return chart.
Natal Neptune is at the chart’s MC; group plans, unclear motives, deceit is the theme for the year. Transiting Pluto is at the Ascendant; big challenges will present themselves, Simpson will change the rules to gain what he wants. Natal Uranus is at the Descendant; expect surprises in what you receive and in how others react to you. This chart has the three outer planets at the angles. It seems likely the Simpson will be part of events which become bigger than his expectations.
Note the point labeled “CD”. This stands for Co-Descendant, and the point marked is one end of an equal arc from the CD to the MC, equal to the arc Asc. to MC. The CD becomes a mirror of the Ascendant and represents that area of the chart where others project themselve into our lives, become an unwanted challenge, force us to make adjustments. Simpson’s natal Mercury is at this CD point, suggesting that his plans, words and ideas will boomerang back into his life. The planets noted up to this point are the only planets we will consider in terms of this chart. They will be the basis of what happens this year to/for Simpson. So, what do we do with this information? How do we use it? The comments made above following each planet, when put together, tell us what the challenges and opportunities for the coming year will be. In this case, with the outer planets involved, Simpson will be caught up in events that run away from him, events that become bigger than life and overpower his personal desires and intent.
A Preview of Coming Events
In the coming posts, we will be introducing a method of constructing Daily Charts. Just as we only used angular planets in this Solar Retrun chart, we will be focusing upon only the angles in these daily charts as well. In these daily charts the angles will move quite rapidly over several days and weeks. We will be looking for the Solar Return chart’s angles, and the angular planets noted above to be present at the daily chart’s angles on the days when events happen that are promised in the solar return. On days when the angles of the daily charts do not contact the angular planets found in the solar return, nothing of note will happen. So, we will be looking for Mercury, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to be at one or more daily chart angles. When we get to those charts I’ll show readers how we can see the events within the chart.
