Next: looking at Lunar Returns

Our next post will examine the usefulness of Lunar Returns

Astrologers who utilize Tropical Zodiac Solar Returns will typically search for meaningful periods within the annual period in which the Solar Return’s promise will likely be carried out.  For this purpose, they utilize other types of charts.

This is contrary to the methods generally used by myself . . . . I use the natal chart, the precession-corrected Solar Return as a cyclic chart that is connected to the natal chart, and a form of daily chart that rests upon that same cycle, the MC-Solar Cycle for all of the dates between successive Solar Returns.  This is a somewhat “unified” approach that drills down from the whole life view (natal chart) to the period view (the Solar Return) to the daily view (the PDA daily charts).

So, please bear with me while I construct a couple of Lunar Return charts and use them to illustrate how the search for a date is done using this Tropical Zodiac based method.  See you in a day or two.  Dave
