Based on Statistical Research

Below we present our astrological research regarding childbirth in Solar Returns.

We analyzed **1037 female solar return charts (updated August 2016) , calculated for the year in which the woman gave birth**.

So, this is not necessarily about the year of pregnancy but of childbirth.

A solar return chart is a horoscope calculated for the moment the transiting Sun returns to its natal position (hence, the name solar - or related to the Sun -- return).

A solar return chart is valid for 1 year (counting from birthday to birthday) and forecasts all the events and experiences that will happen in-between.

You can compare the solar return chart with the natal horoscope (like synastry), but we've not done so because of the huge work involved.

In our research, we only analyze the solar return charts as a stand-alone horoscope, calculated for the place of birth (because we do not always know where the woman resided around her birthday).

Please note that we use the international conventional abbreviations for the planets and bodies.

Interestingly, some statistically significant degree areas were found.

We only looked ta the degree areas occupied by either the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, the Ascendant, the MC and the 5th house cusp (Topocentric house system).

The Sun can never be taken into account because the solar return Sun is always at its natal position.

**Venus between 0°-1° Gemini**(chi square 48.6)- the Ascendant between 0°-1° Taurus (chi square 48.6)
- the
**Moon between 14°-15° in cardinal signs**(Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn) (chi square 48.6) - the Moon between 14°-15° Virgo (chi square 48.1)
- Venus between 9°-10° Virgo (chi square 44.1)
- the Ascendant between 9°-10° Aquarius (chi square 22.1)
- Venus between 29°-30° Aquarius (chi square 22.1)
- the Ascendant between 1°-2° Gemini (chi square 19.2)
- the
**Moon or house cusp 5 between 27°-28° Aries**(chi square 15.1) - House cusp 5 between 20°-21° Aries (chi square 15.0)
- the MC at 16°-17° Capricorn (chi square 15.0)
- Venus between 2°-3° in a sign (chi square 14.6)
- House cusp 5 in the 3rd decan Aries or Libra (between 20°-30° Aries or Libra) (chi square 13.4)

A high count, but not statistically significant, is found with the following degree:

- Mercury between 26°-27° Gemini (twice as much as expected)

- Ceres conjunct the Ascendant (orb 1°) (chi square 24.0)
- Uranus conjunct the Ascendant (orb 3°) (chi square 18.8)
- the Moon conjunct or sextile retrograde Jupiter (orb 3°) (chi square 18.0)
**Mars sextile the Sun (orb 3°)**(chi square 17.6)- Venus sextile Mars (orb 3°) (chi square 17.6)
**Juno sextile the Sun**(orb 1°) (chi square 16.9)- Jupiter conjunct the MC (orb 1°) (chi square 15.8)
- Ceres opposite the Sun (orb 1°) (chi square 15.3)
- Venus opposite Jupiter (orb 1°) (chi square 15.0)
- Jupiter inconjunct the MC (orb 1°) (chi square 14.6)
- Mars conjunct the Ascendant (orb 1°) (chi square 14.1)
- the Ascendant square the Sun (orb 1°) (chi square 13.7)
- Juno opposite the Sun (orb 3°) (chi square 13.5)
- Venus conjunct the MC (orb 1°) (chi square 12.0)
- the Moon conjunct Ceres (orb 1°) (chi square 12.0)
- the Moon trine the Ascendant (orb 6°) (chi square 12.0)

- MO/VE conjunct MC (chi square 69.7)
- JU/AS conjunct UR (chi square 47.0)
- VE/JU = PL (chi square 24.5)
**any midpoint combination in which the Moon (MO), Venus (VE) and Pluto (PL) are involved**(chi square 18.0)

For example: MO/VE = PL and/or MO/PL = VE.

According to R. Ebertin's The Combination of Stellar Influences, these midpoints represent "Motherhood."

We can only confirm his findings and are, again, amazed by the value of his work and research.

- MO/cusp 5 = Chiron (chi square 16.6)
- PL/MC = SO (chi square 14.3)
- MA/Vesta = SO (chi square 13.7)
- MA/JU conjunct UR (chi square 13.7)
- Pallas/Black Moon = VE (chi square 13.6)
- UR/Juno = Part of Fortune (chi square 12.7)
- SO/KN = JU (chi square 12.2)
- AS/KN = Part of Fortune (chi square 12.0)
- PL/Juno = MO (chi square 12.0)

- the ruler of the 2nd house conjunct Mercury (orb 3°) (chi square 151.4)
- the ruler of the 3rd house conjunct Venus (orb 3°) (chi square 128.2)
- Mars as the ruler of the 9th house square the Ascendant/Descendant axis (orb 3°) (chi square 64.0)
- the Moon as the ruler of the 8th house conjunct the 8th house (orb 3°) (chi square 52.9)
- Uranus as the ruler of the 11th house square the 5th-11th house axis (orb 3°) (chi square 52.9)
- the
**ruler of the 5th house is in the 5th house**(chi square 49.8)

This rule confirms an old astrological one stating that any planet in its own house -- and the more so when it's also in its own sign -- brings fulfillment, materialization and realization.

Because the 5th house rules children, "materialization of a child" (childbirth) surely is a possibility. - the ruler of the 12th house in the 1st house (chi square 49.8)
- Jupiter as the ruler of the 5th house conjunct the MC (orb 3°) (chi square 32.3)
- the Moon as the ruler of the 8th house sextile the 6th house cusp (orb 3°) (chi square 32.3)
- the Moon as the ruler of the 8th house in a major aspect (conjunct, sextile, square, trine or opposite) the 2nd-8th house axis (chi square 20.2)
- Jupiter as the ruler of the Ascendant conjunct the 9th house cusp (orb 3°) (chi square 19.2)
- Mercury as the ruler of the 2nd house conjunct the 3rd house cusp (orb 3°) (chi square 18.2)
- the Sun as the ruler of the 12th house sextile the 6th house cusp (orb 3°) (chi square 18.2)
- Pluto as the ruler of the Ascendant conjunct house cusp 3 (orb 3°) (chi square 16.0)
- Saturn as the ruler of the MC in a major aspect (conjunct, sextile, square, trine or opposite) the 5th-11th house axis (chi square 14.3)
- the ruler of the 8th house trine the Sun (orb 3)) (chi square 13.9)
- Venus as the ruler of the 8th house sextile house cusp 5 (orb 3°) (chi square 13.9)
- Venus as the ruler of the MC trine the 5th house cusp (orb 3°) (chi square 12.5)
- the Sun as the ruler of the 2nd house conjunct the Ascendant (orb 3)) (chi square 12.0)
- Jupiter as the ruler of the 5th house trine the 2nd house cusp (orb 3°) (chi square 12.0)

- the Moon in Taurus AND Mars in Gemini (chi square 18.5)
- the Sun in Virgo AND Mars in Capricorn (chi square 15.3)

What this actually means is that if you are a female Virgo and transiting Mars is in Capricorn around your birthday, chances are this is a childbirth year.

**Ascendant Sagittarius**(chi square 14.7)

This one is a little surprising as we would expect Leo, the sign representing children, to be more predominant.

However, our research found that Leo and Libra on the Ascendant are statistically significantly often found in a marriage year rather than a childbirth year!**Pluto in the 1st house**(chi square 14.7)- Venus in Pisces AND Jupiter in Libra (chi square 13.7)
- Moon in Sagittarius AND Venus in Pisces (chi square 12.8)
- Mars in the 5th house (chi square 12.6)
- Moon in Pisces AND Venus in Taurus (chi square 12.0)
- Mercury in Virgo AND Mars in Capricorn (chi square 12.0)

There are NUMEROUS more configurations to be mentioned, but these are the most important ones.

The more data we have, the more reliable our astrological conditions become.

If you want to check solar return charts for childbirth, start with the configurations in bold.

In case, you find different ones in a specific solar return chart, check for further confirmation in the progressed charts.**In particular, pay attention to the Moon-Venus-Pluto midpoint. **

This combo alone is not enough to indicate childbirth AS SUCH, but if you find it in a solar return chart of a woman, you should start to look for other configurations.

**A double whammy of Moon-Venus-Pluto midpoints increases the odds for childbirth in a huge way**.
