CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #090 -- Love in Solar Returns
May 21, 2012

In the spiritual and metaphysical community, the current and ongoing May 20/21, 2012 Solar Eclipse is called the Great Pleiadian Eclipse Alignment because for the first time in 26,000 years, the Sun and Moon, and the constellation Pleiades (also called the Seven Sisters), align in this full Annular Solar Eclipse.

It's a rare solar eclipse alignment that happens between the Earth, the Sun and, our central Sun, Alcyone in the Pleiades Constellation.

Whether or not this has an astrological meaning (other than the one of a regular Solar Eclipse) remains to be seen and that's why we have not discussed this topic in our previous Love Letter.

Some people claim that this solar eclipse is a very important one for humanity because of the alignment with the Pleiades.

Many Native Americans (like the Hopis) and American tribes still claim that their ancestors came from the Pleiades and they hope to be reunited with their ancestors some time.

We expect June 2012 to be a very eventful month with yet more (astronomical and astrological) rare planetary activity: Mercury and Venus are both conjunct and out of bounds during the early days, there is a very rare astronomical event (Venus transit) going on, there are two exact squares of outer planets (the Uranus-Pluto square and the Jupiter-Neptune square), there is a Lunar Eclipse and there are four 'planetary' stations (Chiron, Venus, Saturn and Neptune). Wow, that's a lot for a single month!

Because of all the planetary activity, our monthly love forecast is much longer than usual.

Looking forward to what June will have in store for all of us...

Take care!

Love Forecasts for June 2012

June is a highly interesting month for many reasons: Mercury and retrograde Venus are conjunct and out of bounds during the early days, there is a very rare astronomical event (Venus transit) going on, there are two exact squares between outer planets (the Uranus-Pluto square and the Jupiter-Neptune square), there is a Lunar Eclipse and there are four (!) 'planetary' stations (Chiron, Venus, Saturn and Neptune).

So, that's a whole lot in one single month!

In general, this whole month of June 2012 is going to be:
  • very stressful and full of tension if you are born around January 6, April 4, July 7 or October 8
  • full of agony, grief and peculiar experiences (involving criminal elements, injuries or burns etc.) if you are born around February 25, May 27, August 29 or November 28
  • full of surprises, excitement and joyful events if you are born around February 13, May 14, August 16 or November 15
  • unbelievable with unreal experiences or events related to the immaterial world if you are born around March 10, June 11, September 13 or December 12
  • thrilling with joyful excitement if you are born around March 14, June 14, September 16 or December 15
Key dates to be taken into account on which important events are likely to happen are: June 4, June 11, June 18-19 and June 25-26.

Mercury and retrograde Venus conjoin at 18° Gemini around June 1. Have a nice chat and enjoyable talks the early days of June. There is love to share and you find yourself in a creative period or mood.

If you are born around January 24, March 8, April 23, June 9, July 26, September 11, October 26 or December 10, you are likely to experience very happy moments around June 1-2.

It's a good time to propose or tie the knot. You are able to persuade and influence others and give a good impression. Your life unfolds auspiciously.

Both Mercury and retrograde Venus are out of bounds also, denoting that some things may happen beyond normal expectations.

If you are born around January 26, March 11, April 26, June 11, July 28, September 13, October 29 or December 12, you may be confused or absent-minded around June 2-3. You don't feel centered. Don't indulge in alcohol!

Around June 4, the Lunar Eclipse at 14° Sagittarius is becoming part of a T-square in which Venus and Mars are involved.

Actually, Venus at 16° Gemini squares Mars at 16° Virgo around June 4-5 raising sexual tension and attractions during the Lunar Eclipse. Because Neptune at 3° Pisces stations and regresses at the same day of June 4, it may be a seductive time.

Stationing Neptune may now enhance psychic ability but also self-doubt, uncertainty and confusion.

Try to remain realistic and stay focused. Don't listen to gossip or make sure you try to avoid any story-tellings. The truth may be totally different.

The Venus-Mars square still struggles to find balance between work-related matters and love interests. There is disappointment in matters of love around for some as well as infidelity.

The Sun and Venus join forces at 15° Gemini around June 6. Nice talks and/or small trips make your day.

You may have heard about the very rare and once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event around June 5-6 on which Venus transits across the face of the Sun. The next time when Venus will pass over the Sun will be in 2117 and 2125.

Astrologically, such rare transits have not yet been well-researched but some inconclusive results from past Venus transits point to epic and historical events, bringing totally new and highly transformational events that will start to show up within the following 10 months.

Because the transit happens in Gemini of communication, transportation and knowledge, chances are really major and historic breakthroughs in these fields are coming our ways.

Around June 7, Mercury enters emotional and vacillating Cancer denoting some difficulty communicating individually in an objective way. Your way of speaking and/or writing may have a strong emotional undercurrent. As long as Mercury resides in Cancer (till June 27), you may be more in contact with your family and/or the parental home.

The Sun at 17° Gemini squares Mars at 17° Virgo around June 8. There is work to do, especially writing or doing administration.

You may have noticed that from June 4 till June 9, the mutable T-square between the Sun, Venus and Mars (Mars being the apex planet) remains active and will have a meaning for your love life.

Some of you will experience more passion or creative desires in whatever you want to do while others may struggle with the drive for perfection and juggling as much as possible at the same time.

There is hardship, a reality-check or some physical issues around June 8 if you are born around March 21, June 22, September 24 or December 22.

If you are born around January 24, March 8-9, April 23, June 9, July 26, September 11, October 26 or December 10 there are fortunate developments going on around June 9. It's a happy day on which you can accomplish a lot and succeed. Be happy!

If you are born around this day of June 9, the fortunate configurations will mark your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday).

Jupiter, the teacher, traveller and stranger/foreigner, enters mutable Gemini, the sign of its detriment, around June 11. This transit will bring lots of changes of the place, travel, moves, coming and going etc. but also errors in judgment.

Jupiter in this position is likely to become chatty as well. However, it's a good placement to broaden knowledge even if the information you will get can be overwhelming.

Mercury at 8° Cancer squares Uranus at 8° Aries around June 11 which brings sudden encounters and sudden (breaking) news. It's a day to watch out for and you should expect the unexpected and sudden emergency situations.

If you are born around January 26, March 11, April 25, June 11, July 28, September 13, October 28 or December 12, you may feel ill or experience health issues around June 11. If you are a female born around one of the before-mentioned birthdays, a male person may disappear out of your life.

The day after, around June 12, Mercury still at 8° Cancer opposes Pluto at 8° Capricorn while Chiron stations at 9° Pisces to turn back.

You are in a very talkative mood. People seem to talk about a certain topic and your mind is restless and trying to absorb everything. There is so much excitement around.

The Chiron station may bring a shock and mark a transition time (like death and rebirth).

Actually, Mercury, Uranus and Pluto are building a 2nd T-square this month that is active between June 11-13.

In initiating cardinal signs, this T-square is especially about pushing groundbreaking ideas through. Interestingly, 8° in cardinal signs is related to speaking out emotionally; the more excitement, the more talkative one becomes. Clearly, there may be lots of excitement noticeable around these days.

If you are born around December 30, February 12, March 28, May 13, June 29, August 16, October 1 or November 15 the T-square will be felt strongly. If you are born around January 29, February 27, April 28, May 29, July 31, August 31, October 31 or November 30 this also applies to you, but in a minor way.

Tearful events and sadness surround you around June 14-15 if you are born around January 26, March 11, April 25, June 11, July 28, September 13, October 28 or December 12. You feel powerless. It's a day of surgery, injuries and paralysis (mentally, emotionally or physically).

June 16 is a day of damage control and finding relief. It's also a day of travel for work, short trips and/or changing the place obligatory.

Mercury at 22° Cancer squares Saturn at 22° Libra around June 20. The days around the Summer Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) bring sadness.

The Sun enters Cancer around June 21 and becomes home- and family-oriented.

The days after the June 19 New Moon and especially between June 21-22 are full of sudden love encounters, love at first sight and irresistible attraction. If you are born around December 30, February 12, March 28, May 13, June 29, August 16, October 1 or November 15 the influences will be felt strongly. If you are born around January 29, February 27, April 28, May 29, July 31, August 31, October 31 or November 30 this also applies to you, but in a minor way.

However, there is a reality-check or some physical hardship around June 22 if you are born around March 21, June 22, September 24 or December 22.

The first out of 7 exact paradigm-shifting Uranus-Pluto squares happens around June 24 but its influence will be felt the whole month long. Uranus at 8° Aries and Pluto at 8° Capricorn will question many developments in our society.

Remember the mid 60s when Uranus and Pluto were conjunct?

The outgoing square of taking action will force to let go old patterns and will pave the way for a totally new direction.

This square at 8° in cardinal signs is about pulling down the masks and walls. At 8° Aries, Uranus is stronger than Pluto and will start to break through Pluto in Capricorn's conservative walls.

Things from the past will become known and more public knowledge.

Around June 25 there is another square between two outer planets, Jupiter at 3° Gemini squares Neptune at 3° Neptune that will color and modify the current Uranus-Pluto square in some way.

The challenging aspect between Jupiter and Neptune is very often indicating the uncovering of fraud and illegal transactions, the more so because Jupiter is in the sign of its detriment which often denotes unlawful behavior or not respecting the Law.

Also, there are unreal expectations and deceptions going on because of too much irresponsible or careless behavior and errors in judgment.

Jupiter and Neptune here promote lies and delusion as well. There is the wrong faith. Most of all, though, this aspect is above all related to financial issues, exceptional losses and fraud.

Also, Saturn at 22° Libra stations around the same day of June 25 and turns direct again, resulting in more stability in your relationships. It will become more clear how your relationships do and you now may consider bringing your relationship to a higher level.

You may feel more disciplined during the Saturn station.

In Libra, stationing Saturn becomes more diplomatic and has more finesse and a sense of the politic.

Around June 26, Mercury enters the fixed fire sign Leo and speaks out more openly and in public.

Jupiter at 3° Gemini opposes the North Node of the Moon at 3° Sagittarius around June 27 while Venus at 7° Gemini stations and turns direct again.

When Jupiter is connected to the South Node of the Moon, unlawful events and financial issues are confirmed just once more to happen late June.

Neptune in Pisces will be the apex planet of the T-square in which the Moon's North Node and Jupiter square Neptune.

This pattern is about dissolving groups, huge financial losses and confusion.

Late June is clearly not the appropriate time to gamble or speculate.

Stationing Venus in Gemini points to encounters that can be very meaningful. There is heartfelt communication bringing magical moments. Share your love.

Stationing Venus in Gemini becomes more approachable and inviting with personable flair.

Around June 29-30, the last T-square of this month is active and is built between the Sun, Uranus and Pluto (the Sun is now at 8° Cancer and squares Uranus at 8° Aries and opposes Pluto at 8° Capricorn).

The groundbreaking influences of the month continue and will especially be felt if you are born around December 30, February 12, March 28, May 13, June 29, August 16, October 1 or November 15.

If you are born around January 29, February 27, April 28, May 29, July 31, August 31, October 31 or November 30 this also applies to you, but in a minor way. Here again, expect an emotional and talkative mood.

Late June (especially the last week) is marked by legal issues and actions (be it a divorce or other legal actions).

You may be affected if you are born around February 3, March 18, May 3, June 18-19, August 5, September 20, November 5 or December 19-20.

Love in Solar Returns

Solar returns are one of our favorite research domains because they can be studied as a single horoscope to predict annual events -- even if it's only part of the whole picture. It's always best to also compare the solar return with the natal chart because then the value of the solar return chart really shines, but the solar return chart as a stand-alone chart already gives some important information and gives a direction.

In this article we will discuss some astrological configurations that have some impact on your love life (for good or bad) and that can be seen from the solar return chart as a stand-alone chart.

We use Topocentric houses and because the place of residence during the solar return chart cannot be known in advance, calculate the charts for the place of birth.

This makes sense if you consider that the natal promise (what is not already promised in the natal chart cannot be delivered by a solar return) works irrespective of the place of residence.

One of the first things to do is look at the solar return Ascendant. Matters of love often become a focus when the Ascendant is in Leo (sign of love) or Libra (sign of relationships and partnerships in a wide sense).

The Sun in the solar return houses, shows the area where you can shine or where you can identify yourself during the year.

The Sun in the 5th (especially) and 7th house can be related to love and romance. This is the more so if the Sun trines the Ascendant from the 5th house.

Mind though that any planet or body right in the center of the 5th house is quite weak and resides on the background. Its influence will be there though, but just in the background and it will not mark your year profoundly.

A New Moon in the 5th house (the Sun and the Moon in the 5th solar return house) often bring someone new into your world.

Next comes the position of Venus, planet of relationships. If Venus is intercepted, there may be a secret affair going on, or you may feel fenced in (triangular relationships).

Retrograde Venus denotes that some relationships or partnerships (co-workers, family members, friends, lovers,...) will end, resulting in people leaving your world.

In solar returns, retrograde Venus is not about connecting but rather about dis-connecting and withdrawal.

So, you may be less sociable during the year.

Venus in the 5th or 7th solar return house is almost always a good indication and will likely bring new encounters and attractions.

Venus in the 12th house often brings a secret or illicit relationship. This also goes for an intercepted ruler of the 5th house.

If the ruler of the 5th house is in the 6th house and the ruler of the 6th house is in the 5th house, expect love at the working floor and keep an eye on your co-workers.

All double whammies in which the ruler of the 5th house is involved, may point to where you may find love during the year (for example the ruler of the 5th house in the 11th house and the ruler of the 11th house in the 5th may bring love among your friends).

A stellium (more than 3 planets) in the 5th house brings the focus for the year on love and romance (for good or bad).

If the Dark Moon (or Black Moon) Lilith (the mean apogee of the Moon) is in the 5th house, chances are you will experience love's sorrow or a rupture. This position is seldom a good one.

Check the most exact midpoints (45° dial/list; orb 0°00' - 0°01') and look for any midpoint in which Venus is found. These one(s) will work out profoundly during the solar return year.

Especially look at the following midpoints: Sun/Moon, Venus/Mars, Moon/Venus, Moon/Mars, Mars/Jupiter, Venus/Uranus.

Angular planets are very important. The more a planet conjuncts one of the angles (Ascendant, MC, Descendant or IC), the more the planet becomes important. If Saturn and/or Uranus are conjunct an angle, expect a separation, breakup or sorrow.

Planets that conjunct, square or oppose the Moon too are very important and will prominently mark the year. Saturn will bring limitations, sorrow while Venus may bring enjoyable encounters (if no adverse aspects can be found). The Moon here acts like a pointer and should not be delineated in the aspect analysis. Only stick with the basic and archetypal meaning of the planet that is in aspect with the solar return Moon.
