Solar Returns with precession correction
© Roger Pearson 9th Oct 2016
In this post I wanted to ‘prove’ to my own satisfaction and to anyone interested that AstroConnexions can and does provide accurate Natal and precession-corrected Solar Return charts. To do this I once again take my inspiration from the most excellent Skyscript website.
On the Skyscript forum “Steve” (an experienced and esteemed astrologer) examines some SR charts and their corresponding precession- corrected charts in a thread entitled:
An Excellent Solar Return Book
I have read dozens of astrology books and hundreds of astrological articles. With my astrological experiences, Jim Eshelman’s book ‘Interpreting Solar Returns’ offers important astrological Keys for the astrologer to seeing/understanding the methodology/techniques Cyril Fagan used for Solar Returns.
He examines numerous charts. The chart I want to examine here is A Lucky Sweepstakes Winner which he refers to here:
The following link http://www.freeconsiderations.com/ has an article by Ken Gillman about an Irish Sweepstakes winner of $120,000, on Oct. 3rd 1970.
This article can be read in Volume 5, #3, page 16, titled Chart 6, Lucky Male Sweepstakes Winner.
Birth data: June 12th 1952, 1:23 PM PDT, Santa Monica, Ca.
Ken’s article uses the tropical zodiac. Ken asks the reader the most important question for this Sweepstake winner of $120,000
“Could the Astrologer Predicted the nature of this event?”
You can read the extensive thread here:
He presents a Solar Fire chart: a Solar Return precession-corrected for 1970, Santa Monica.
I entered the natal data into Solar Fire Gold (Windows, Ver 6.1). Here’s the Solar Fire natal chart and the same chart cast with AstroConnexions:
