Lynn Bell’s classic on interpretation of the Solar Return chart is now back in print!
“Solar returns have been used by astrologers since Greco-Roman times to define the patterns and trends of each forthcoming years. Sadly underrated and often interpreted simplistically in modern astrology, they have not yet found their rightful place in a psychological approach to astrological symbolism. This book, a transcript of a seminar given for the Centre for Psychological Astrology (CPA), brings a fresh yet profound approach to solar returns, rooted firmly in astrological tradition, yet enriched with the sophistication of modern astrological and psychological perspectives. Both eminently practical yet philosophically far-reaching and thought-provoking, it will be a revelation to all astrological students and practitioners.
In addition to the lively format of the seminar transcript, there is an appendix including further examples of the application of solar returns to actual lives. There is little current literature on solar returns satisfactory to those seeking greater depth and accessibility from this ancient yet perennially useful approach to interpreting the cycles of individual unfoldment. This book fills a long-neglected gap, and is essential reading for any astrological student concerned with understanding the meaning as well as the manifestations of the different stages of the human journey.” – Liz Greene
