JAE 2021 Solar Return

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Jun 08, 2021 7:05 pm

I want to do a full workup on my October 2021 SSR, rather than just rely on visual quick impressions. I've assumed for some years that I'd need to go quite east for this, but I've recently been wondering if perhaps, instead, I should stay in LA for this one. I won't have a clear impression until I work it up fully.

Around December 2021, Marion and I both have a convergence of several quite troublesome, sad markers so I don't want to take a lot of chances with this SSR. I'll start thinking about the larger picture after I do the full breakdown (which now begins immediately below).

I hadn't noticed until now: Pluto and Eris are in 0°01' square, very close to the angles. I'm almost willing to sacrifice myself to whatever fate the chart in LA has in store just to get an unfiltered experience of that rare, now outermost, planetary combination. - And they fall on my Mars.

r Jupiter on MC -3°28'
r Uranus on MC -3°14'
r Neptune on EP -1°07'
---------------------------
t Pluto on IC +0°38'
r Mars on IC +0°46'
t Eris on Dsc +1°09'

r Sun on Asc +5°20'
t Mars on Asc +6°16'
t Mercury on Asc +7°00'

(No Moon aspects.)

-- t Pluto-Eris sq. 0°01'
-- t Pluto conj. r Mars 0°08' mundo
-- r Uranus-Neptune sq. 0°08' mundo
-- r Jupiter-Uranus conj. 0°14' mundo
-- t Eris sq. r Mars 0°20'
-- r Jupiter-Neptune sq. 0°22' mundo

I'm not crazy about the strongest factors - especially natal Neptune being my most angular natal planet - though I'm quite intrigued and interested in some of them, especially the mind-boggling 0°01' Pluto-Eris square within 2° of angles and exactly atop my Mars.

Looking at alternative destinations, one immediately see Jupiter on IC at the longitude of New Orleans, Jackson, and Memphis. Finding New Orleans with Jupiter on IC and my Venus on EP (plus Uranus more widely setting) is most interesting, of course - they are 2° from square in RA and this applies to the entire line of longitude. As one moves further north, Uranus opposite natal Mercury gets closer to the horizon - it's nearly there at Memphis (my Mercury is exactly 1°00' from Asc in Memphis, Uranus 2°13' below Dsc, keeping Jupiter 0°19' from IC). This is a definite possibility.

Also, transiting Venus squares MC through the Carolinas. I've been wanting to go there. I can even get a Venus-Jupiter crossing line in the middle of West Virginia.

But I don't have to go that far to take advantage of natal planets angular. That will be the next thing to check.

t Neptune sq. r Pluto 2°04'
Is this correct?

No, the other way around. I'll fix it.

My natal Jupiter precessed to the date of the SSR has RA 120°48', with Uranus at 120°36'. For LA, the SSR RAMC is 117°13'. To put natal Jupiter exactly on IC, the RAMC has to increase 120°48' - 117°13' = 3°35'. My home is 118W19: Subtracting 3°35' (to increase the RAMC) gives 114W44.

That's a little east of Las Vegas; in fact, the longitude of Hoover Dam is 114W44 exactly. What does the SSR look like there, at latitude 36N01? With my Jupiter on MC, it has 0°23' Libra rising - pretty close to my Neptune and square my Mars. Not a lot of help. How far north would I have to go to get my Sun on Asc? Far outside the bounds of the U.S. It ain't agonna happen.

We could also check natal Jupiter square Asc. I could get that near Flagstaff or along a curve from there; but, by then, two Saturns are starting to creep into the foreground (and I don't fully shake the biggest concerns of the West Coast chart, I just overwhelm them with positive stuff).

At the moment, Memphis looks seriously good.

For now (full decision won't be made for months), I'm going to work this up for Memphis.

r Pluto on MC -7°10'
----------------------------
t Jupiter on IC +0°19'
t Uranus on Dsc +2°13'
r Mercury on Asc +2°21'

r Venus on EP-a +2°22'
r Saturn on Asc +6°39'

-- t Uranus op. r Mercury 0°08' mundo
-- r Venus-Pluto sq. 0°13'
-- t Jupiter-Uranus sq. 1°55' mundo
-- t Jupiter sq. r Venus 2°01' in RA
-- t Jupiter sq. r Mercury 2°02' mundo
-- r Mercury-Saturn sq. 2°24'

Other partile
t Pluto-Eris sq. 0°01'
t Eris sq. r Mars 0°20'
t Pluto conj. r Mars 0°21'
t Mars conj. r Sun 0°48'


A summary of the most relevant factors:
(I could fine tune the location and make the Jupiter exact)

t Uranus op. r Mercury 0°08'
r Venus-Pluto sq. 0°13'
t Jupiter on IC 0°19'
t Jupiter-Uranus sq. 1°55'
t Jupiter sq. r Venus 2°01'
t Jupiter sq. r Mercury 2°02'
t Uranus on Dsc 2°13'
r Mercury on Asc 2°21'
r Mercury-Saturn sq. 2°24'

BTW, the exact Jupiter-Uranus paran precisely on the angles - Jupiter on IC and Uranus setting - is on the eastern edge of Missouri north of St. Louis at essentially Elsberry, for which I get Jupiter 0°27' before IC and Uranus 0°08' after it. I don't see any advantage in heading to that obscure a place. I could do as well going to anyplace at 90W21 (just a hair west of Memphis), such as Proctor, Arkansas.
