3 SOLAR RETURN REPORT FOR YUNA You have the potential to truly improve yourself in many areas of life this year so that you do well to take advantage of whatever opportunities come your way. There is likely to be an air of nobility and dignity in the way that you go about things, so that you might also be seen as wiser and more honorable by others. Sun in strong square (within 0.6 degrees) with Neptune The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time. With the Sun conjunct or in dynamic aspect to Neptune in your Solar Return chart, over the twelve-month period until your next birthday the emphasis is on your awareness of your sensitive side and your sense of spirituality. It is possible that you could suffer some type of ego loss this year, increasing your sense of the numinous otherworldly planes of existence. You could also become involved with media, visual arts, music or poetry, since all of these can be expressions of your connection to Spirit. Any of these representations of the divine could become an enormous factor for you over the course of this year-long period. This is most likely to be experienced in the area represented by the house where your Sun is placed. You also could find that you lack the ability to properly define this area in your life. This could be a good thing, or it could prove slightly disastrous. You may become confused for example, or feel like you don't matter in the scheme of things. In extreme instances you might endure an almost complete dissolution of your identity. This is also a year in which decisions could be difficult and unclear, or you may go back and forth. It helps to cultivate your intuition and to develop an approach that is practical but not too attached to results, leaving ultimate outcomes in the hands of the cosmos. It is good to be aware of the potential for escaping the practical earthly plane altogether in an unhealthy way. Some examples of what you might want to consciously avoid this year include substance or alcohol abuse, or indeed any form of escapism. You also might need to be aware of feeling needy or inhabiting a victim role, one where you expect others to save you. You benefit when you guard against the potential for over-identifying as the one who must sacrifice completely for others. The positive manifestation of this energy lies in an enhanced sense of compassion and a feeling of oneness with the universe and everyone around you. You could make tremendous spiritual progress this year, or at least feel that you more fully access the spark of divinity that lies inside you.
