Solar Returns is appealing because it neatly encapsulates a 12-month perspective into one chart, in relation to a natal chart. As it also draws from the same fundamental principles of natal chart analysis, Solar Returns is great way to extend and build on your existing skills in natal astrology.
In this 5-week short course, we will explore some fundamental principles behind Solar Return charts to help you build some skills to start working with them in your study and practice. Many of the core principles used in natal chart analysis are also used within the Solar Returns system, but some adjustments are required to reframe these principles within the context of a one-year time slice.
The outcome is that students will be able to look at any Solar Returns chart and draw out some significant themes for the year based on the techniques delivered during this course.
Chart examples, reading resources and quizzes will be provided, and students will also be working on their own Solar Returns chart during the course.
