Zodiac Signs on the Ascendantand MC, and the Ascendant Ruler


The zodiac signson the Ascendant and MC, and the house position of the Ascendant ruler at thetime of the solar return are described below. Your social and careeropportunities for the coming year are influenced by these signs and houseplacement.



Solar Return Ascendant Libra :





    You  will  require peace  and  harmony  away  from  the  maddening crowds  this  year.  You  will  have  a  flair  for  artistic and  creative  projects  and  can  talk  up  a  storm.  Indecisions will  fluctuate  from  "yes" to  "no"  to  "I don't  know",  and  all  within  the  same breath,  the  more  time  you  spend  thinking about  the  best  course  to  take  in  any  situation.  Legal careers  are  a nice  compliment  to  your temperament,  with  the  ability  to  see  both  sides  of  a situation  while  remaining  unbiased. Libra  on  the  Ascendant is  an  excellent  indicator of  marriage,  but  not  the  only  one  to  be  considered.


    Since  you    have wonderful  sense  of  colors, decorating,  painting,  drawing  or  any  field  that  allows  you  to  match  patterns  with surroundings  would  be  good  for  you  to experiment  in.  Diplomacy  is  a  natural  state  of  mind  as  well,  and  you  are  endowed  with  good  reasoning  abilities and  more  tolerant  natures than  most  other  persons.


    Abundant  energy,  success-oriented and  putting  your  best  foot  forward  for  the  world  to  see  are  important for  you  this  year.  You  become  more  charming  and  polite, but  may  come  across  as  insincere.  There  will  be  much  more  of  an  interest  in  books, music,  art  and  photography (taking  pictures  as  well  as  posing)  as  Libra  is  ruled  by  Venus,  planet  of  sensuality  and beauty.  It  will  not  be  hard  to  see  from  this  that  physical  attractiveness will  be  much  more  important  to  you  this  year.  There  is  much  more  of  an  emphasis on  personal  luxuries,  comforts, dressing  well  and  cosmetics and  beauty  aids  (for  the  ladies)  and  retaining  your  youth  in  some  way.  On  the  negative side,  Librans  can  also  be  somewhat  shy,  rude  or  altogether antisocial,  with  a total  disregard  for  appearance. Health  wise,  there  is  apt  to  be  a  lack  of  energy  and  ailments  that  are  the  direct  result  from dietary  habits,  sweets  being  the  biggest  culprit.


    Relationships  that  are  not  harmonious  with  a  sense  of cooperation  and  above  all  becoming  friends  can  really  mess  up  your  internal  wiring. Approval  and  recognition  from   others  for  work  well  done  is  a necessity  for  balancing  your  life.  You  are  a  natural  at  giving  of  yourself and  when  unappreciated  you  wilt  like  a  flower  that  has  been  stepped  on.


    Marriage  is  very  important  to  you,  but  you  must  look  before  you  leap  into  it  because  you  have  the  tendency  to  marry  very  quickly especially  this  year,  and  suffer  the  consequences of  your  impatient  quest until  you  can  bear  it  no  longer. You  put  your  friendly and  enchanting  face  forward  in  a non-aggressive  manner  and  you  would  much  rather make  peace  with  people  in  an  agreeable way  which  is  your approach  to  win  people over  to  your  side.  Look  to  the  house  where  VENUS  is  located  to  see  where  you  need  to  COOPERATE  and  be  in  HARMONY  with  others this  year.


           Ascendant is in Libra, Aquarius Decanate


    Ruled by the planetUranus,  you have a strongintellect and are governed by reason than emotions. Take a project andsystematically make it work because that is your strong suit. Kindness andsympathy for people around you are very positive traits, and should be utilizedat every opportunity to bring success back to you. Caution carried to extremespromotes inaction, which is a danger as well.


Ruler of Ascendant in 11th house


    With the Solar AscendantRuler in the Solar 11th house, social and intellectual security takes on agreater prominence. You will look for acceptance in life with people around youin group and personal situations. The 11th house represents friends, socialgroups, and societies, and it also represents the affection that you need fromothers to feel important.


Solar Return MC Cancer:


    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  will exhibit verysensitive characteristics, retreating when feeling threatened emotionally. Youare psychic and receptive to everything in your environment, and feel things ona deeper level than most other people. Your responses to life situations areemotional rather than intellectual which can have mixed results. Moods changelike the incoming and outgoing tide, and just as often. A career that bringsyou into contact with the masses would be an excellent career choice.


    Cancer on the Midheaventhis year needs to be the center of attention, or you can be more famous forsome reason this year. Giving lectures, sermons, political aspirations orbecoming a public figure is favored. Closer relationships with parents andpeople in authority is also highlighted for you this year. In career matters,interests related to women, children, housing or food will be more appealing.


    Making extreme changes inyour life or going away from your base of operations which you consider safeand secure is detrimental to your well being. You keep a tight grip on people,possessions, memories or sentimental objects. Your home and domestic securityis very significant to you and you run on pure "instinct".


    In connection to otherpeople in your environment you are very loyal, protective, supportive, loving,compassionate, softhearted and sympathetic to their needs. People seek you outin a time of crisis because they know you will understand and provide help ifat all possible. Perhaps they know you are just a good listener. You will neverforget the thoughtful or thoughtless, kind or unkind things that are said anddone to you. You may forgive them, but never forget any injustice.


    Mood wise, you drive peoplecrazy with your open methods of communication or your withdrawn nature thatkeeps in touch through thought waves that others are supposed to understand,and sometimes do.
