Annual Ascendant in Aries

If this year your Solar Revolution Ascendant is Aries ♈, take into account the following tips and advice to work with this influence:

  1. You are in a year in which you will have the feeling that there is no time to waste to achieve your goals.
  2. With this position you will be very connected to your desires and therefore what other people want will be less of a priority for you. That is, you may tend to have a me-first attitude.
  3. Your enthusiasm for achieving your goals will increase and will be your great driving force, although there is also the risk of not being constant and getting bored of things quickly.
  4. With Aries in the 1st house in the annual chart it will be more difficult to control your temperament and therefore it is important to avoid recklessness.

  6. You will feel uncomfortable if you are not doing something or if you feel like you are wasting time.
  7. The great challenge of the year is to think before acting and not the other way around. Work with a plan or strategy.
  8. You are challenged to finish what you start before starting other activities. Excessive tasks can disperse your energy.
  9. This year you will have the archetype of the warrior and Mars as ruler. Year of struggles and conquests.

The Solar Return  is a predictive technique whose validity period extends from the moment of one’s birthday to the next birthday. The Solar Return map or chart reflects the configurations of the sky at the time and place where the person is when the Sun returns to the same point where he was when he was born.

Mars, ruler of the Ascendant in the Solar Return

Every planet has a sign that rules it and the ruling planet of the sign that is located at the beginning of the 1st house is called the Ruler of the Ascendant. If you are Aries Ascendant in the annual return, your ruler will be Mars and this star is very important in the annual chart since it indicates your potential for action and possibilities for the year. The house where Mars is located when your annual Ascendant is Aries will have a lot of weight when making the interpretation.

For example, if Mars is located in the 7th house, the relationships, partnerships or agreements of the year will be very important and decisive in achieving your purposes. It is very likely that in the topics and areas related to the house where Mars is, you will have to make decisions, be a protagonist, promote initiatives or act in some sense. For example, when Mars is located in the 4th house, we may be focused on changing residence or resolving a family matter during the year. The aspects that this ruler receives are related to scripts that will be repeated throughout the year when we have to face situations or act. For example, if Saturn makes a square with Mars (ruler of the Ascendant) we may be in a year in which we must overcome obstacles, adversities or problems.

Aspects to the Aries Ascendant in the Solar Return

The partial aspects (less than 1 degree) that the Ascendant degree of the Solar Return receives are very important in the interpretation and largely determine what the year will be like. If Mars makes an exact trine to the annual Ascendant, it will be a very dynamic year where you will be able to carry out successful endeavors and enjoy determination. If Venus is in partile conjunction to the Ascendant of the year you can have experiences that will make you very happy or you may find love if you do not have a partner and if Neptune is in square to the Ascendant it is possible that you will experience some disappointments, disappointments or confusing situations during the year.

Relocation of the Solar Return

Every year around the birthday the Sun returns to the point where it was at the time of birth, starting a new solar cycle and the place where we are at that moment determines how the houses of the Solar Revolution will be located. The positions of planets by sign and the planetary aspects do not vary, but the positions of planets and signs in the houses do.

In this sense, Relocation is a technique through which the best possible place to spend the birthday is sought and in this way soften the inharmonic configurations present in the birthday sky and enhance the harmonics. For example, if for a certain city your Ascendant is Aries and you have Mars in exact or partile square with Saturn, it is a good idea to spend your birthday in another city where the Ascendant is not Aries to reduce the strength of the inharmonious aspect of Mars with Saturn.
