Zodiac Signs on the Ascendant and MC, and the AscendantRuler


The zodiac signs onthe Ascendant and MC, and the house position of the Ascendant ruler at the timeof the solar return are described below. Your social and career opportunitiesfor the coming year are influenced by these signs and house placement.



Solar Return Ascendant Taurus :




    You will find that youraccomplishments take on the speed of glue this year. This is an asset becauseyou will never forget the fine details and finishing strokes that make projectsinto masterpieces. Every action you employ is well thought out, organized,filed, cross referenced and above all methodical. The only stick in theointment for you is an unexpected turn of events that totally disrupts yournervous system and drives you  toanother pack of cigarettes or activates your sweet tooth. You can work forhours on projects that people have lost interest in, because that's just the funkind of person you are!


    Taurus on the Ascendantimplies procrastination to some degree and difficulty breaking undesirablehabits and behavior. Taurus brings materialistic, status-seeking tendencies tothe foreground this year, and can be easily influenced by people of power andwealth although you may not openly show it. Taurus is ruled by Venus, planet ofsensuality and beauty, and this year physical attractiveness and physicaltraining will become more important to you. A greater appreciation for goodfood, wine as well as weight gain can be expected. If you are a female theworld of cosmetics and beauty aids will be employed to make yourself moreattractive, as well as the latest and most flattering fashions and comfortablefitting, soft and luxurious. You will also have much more of an interest in artand music this year. Health wise your neck and throat areas are most vulnerablefor you now, and since infections of the ear and earaches are on the rise, youwill have to guard against them.


    Once you have a projectfinished, I defy anyone to try to make changes in your presentation. This iswhere your stubborn and strong willed nature is stimulated and the symbol ofthe Bull emerges. Like the homing pigeon who flies home the same way everytime, you do everything in your lives the same way, day after day even if youhate the routine while complaining at the same time.


    As long as you are leftalone at whatever you do, your mannerisms return to a domesticated state,waiting for the next poor soul to challenge your position. You never have toworry about being rushed or pushed around, nor would you allow it, unless thereis a monetary incentive, roses, candlelight dinner, jewelry, real estate orlove involved. Then  you becomeputty in anyone's hands.


    You are considered to be arock, headstrong, opinionated, solid, reliable and dependable. You are sensibleand practical in all matters and your appearance is cool, calm and collected,and unemotional most of the time, which masks a great strength which is anasset to you in times of struggle.


    Security on the job,finances which balance in your favor and a home which is your piece of the rockare utmost important to you. Should someone suggest a move or change to you,you are likely to put up a struggle that the world will not soon forget. Youcan be found sitting at the front door of your home, job or marriage (no matterhow bad it is) long after everything has been changed, finalized or longforgotten.


    You have an enthusiasticapproach to all things beautiful, whether love or art forms, and can be quiteat home among nature. Your attractiveness has an earthy quality which makespeople feel at home with you immediately. This is the spell you weave to getothers into your web. Once inside you do not give them up easily, if at all.Look to the house where VENUS is located to see where your LOVE of life islocated this year.


           Ascendant is in Taurus, Taurus Decanate


    You won't be pushed intodoing anything but can be enticed by gentle means. You will have an attachmentto creative and artistic endeavors and your pleasure loving nature is strongbut will need controlling. The ruler is Venus, the planet of beauty and youwill go out of your way to acquire through art, treasures, and whatever moneywill buy you. You have the vitality to achieve and accomplish anything that youchoose. Stubbornness and the inability to share should be recognized and dealtwith the best you can, usually through the efforts of service to others, whichis a test of Venus here.


Ruler of Ascendant in 3rd house


    With the Solar AscendantRuler in the Solar 3rd house of communication, this is where social andintellectual learning is shared. This is where you will explore your community  or communicate to your environment, andto make sense out of it. The 3rd House is also related to education, all formsof communication and short journeys. The 3rd House brings importance tobrothers and sisters, childhood friends, neighbors and the outside world. Mostimportantly, it is where you as an individual fit within the structure of theworld around you this year, and your ability to relate to it.


Solar Return MC Capricorn:


    Since this is the most"visible" part of the solar chart, it represents how you are actuallyseen in the world by others. It represents your more outward or public face andwhere you are likely to encounter success, and your reputation in the world.Your goals involve money, your standing in the community and business matters.You may appear cold to others but you have disciplined your life on a specificgoal, and some of the veneer that has built up needs time to wear down some.Just the same be aware of your cool and fault finding side and learn to modifyit for your own good.


    With Capricorn on theMidheaven this year, difficulties can be encountered with authority figures orfather figures feelings limited, restricted and unable to operate freely, orburdened with too many responsibilities. Career goals now will be strong, andjobs that offer the greatest security or position of authority over others willhave a strong draw for you. Make sure that once you have achieved this positionof authority over others, power doesn't bring you down in disgrace, and quitepublicly.


    Your approach to yoursurroundings is careful, cautious, conservative, self-restricted, andrealistic. You are not known for taking risks or chances which will leave youon the short end of the stick. Spontaneous actions is not a part of yourpersonality because you carefully plan each action and activity. People willfind you doing the same things at the same time everyday, with an appointmentcalendar that is full and very well organized to gain full benefit of yourprecious time.


    In business you are veryclever and intelligent making careful choices and overworking to the point offatigue. Asking others for their help does not fall within your realm ofreality unless absolutely necessary and even then with the greatest reluctance.You work diligently to your goals of acquiring a position of responsibility andhigh office.


    People see you as veryserious, having no sense of humor, yet quiet and always in a state ofcontemplation. Gushy expressions of feelings don't register on the internalscale for you, you have no idea what it is for. You work so hard on buildingthe outer self to deal with life, that you have lost some of the endearingqualities.


    You aren't cheap, you arejust a conservationist when it comes to the almighty dollar, and never let itget very far from your bank account. What you do spend on is items that willlast a long time or secure investments.
