Canada has a new face in terms of its government, Justin Trudeau. He won his election on Oct. 19th, 2015.

In this posting the t/Moon-to-n/Sun Return and Advanced chart for the date of his election will be utilized to explore what happens when natal chart angles realign with Return chart angles.

Justin Trudeau’s t/Moon-to-n/Sun Return occurred the day before the national election, on Oct. 18th, 2015.  When an event occurs on or just after a Return chart it seems to add emphasis to the chart’s meanings.  Let’s look at that chart now.

Justin Trudeau MtoS 10-18-2015-J The first factor that I see in this chart is the natal MC at the Desc. angle.  In my book, Personal Prediction (the use of Solar Returns and progressed daily charts for prediction) there is a whole chapter devoted to the return of natal and solar return angles to progressed daily chart angles.  Those observations are valid also for these Return charts;  Goals and support are appreciated by all.  Congratulations are received.  An opportunity to start fresh, to extend your influence over others.

t/Moon-to-n/Sun is just 5 degrees behind this Desc. angle, lending his image and life-work to this interpretation.  t/Venus-t/Jupiter bracket the IC angle; great fortune and support helps to initiate a new venture.  Perhaps the location of t/Chiron 5 degrees from the MC indicates a “healing message” for the country.  Another planet is also five degrees from the Desc. angle, t/Pluto, suggesting a major change in political direction.

There are no other angular planets close to or ahead of the angles.  We might choose to look at t/Sun and/or t/Part of Fortune. These are always important as a general rule.  t/PoF conjoins t/Mars-t/Jupiter; results are linked to an aggressive outreach to the population.  t/Sun-opp-n/Asc.; Trudeau reaches out to others to share his vision.  That’s it.  Little more needs to be said relative to this chart and how it mirrors life.


The election was won the day/evening after the Return chart on the 18th.  The angles of the chart only advanced a degree-or-so in that time frame.  What had changed was the t/Moon and t/PoF positions.

Advanced Desc. conjoins n/MC.  Goals are recognized by others.  t/Moon conjoins t/Pluto; there is a great deal of intensity and public reaction on this date.  t/Jupiter-IC has closed within a degree; opportunity and social impact is gained.  And, t/PoF conjoins the t/N.Node; “chance and change” are strongly linked to his ability to forge associations with a wide range of people.

Again, this is all that needs to be said about this chart.

Not all t/Moon-n/Sun Returns/Advanced charts are this simple and clear in terms of being used for predicting political outcomes.  But, the charts are pretty clear as a rule.  The purpose of using this current event, other than to recognize our friends to the north of the Great Lakes, is to make a simple case for the impact of a natal angles being activated by the angles of a Return and/or Advanced chart.  In this case, the n/MC is seen as public image, one’s goals and work.  The Return chart Desc. is seen as the influence and interaction with others — one or a few others, or many others.  Some might say that the MC should represent “many others, the public.”  That may be, but the n/MC is in play here.  Sometimes, the natal and transiting versions of a planet or an angle are hard to differentiate from each other.

Dave has been exploring cyclic astrology since the mid-1970's. CYCLIC astrology utilizes both Return charts and planetary-pair cycles for short-term prediction. These practices and four years of archived material are available for study or reading at ninthhouse.wordpress.com A new book, Personal Prediction ISBN 978-9-615-63033-5, has been published and the MC-Solar Cycle technique is now supported through a recognized software provider so that all students and practicing astrologers can apply these techniques for their own use. Recently, Dave has been exploring a new charting format:, transiting Moon to natal Sun Return charts. These moon-sun returns show how see seek to maintain or deal with change in our lives. A book is expected to be released in 2015.
