Re: How can we know if a 'big' year is coming from the Solar Return chart?

First, we must note that common sense in prediction of rank, marriage, begetting of children etc. is to be made between infants, adults and elders. For Moon rules infancy, Mercury rules childhood, Venus rules adolescence, Sun rules early adulthood, Mars rules middle adulthood, Jupiter rules late adulthood, and Saturn rules elderhood, and they predominate the events in these ages. Universal astrology by nationality and region also takes precedence with different economies, religions and customs, the average age for marriage for example varies quite a bit by country.

Second, we must note that there is no beneficent or maleficent planet that is ruler of everything on the same occasion, for usually many contradictory events take place at the same time - one may for example receive promotion and advancement in career, yet become misfortunate in marriage or be prostrated by illness, another may become the parent of children, yet nothing significant happen in his career or to his health, etc.

Thus we must observe the Ascendant for body and travel, the Sun for dignity and marriage for women, the Moon for mind and marriage for men, the Lot of Fortune for wealth and property, and the Midheaven for actions, children and friendship. We must observe the placement of the luminaries with respect to the universe and the nativity, and of the lot with respect to the nativity, and their predominators with houses, exaltations, triangles, terms and aspects - Jupiter and Venus help, Saturn and Mars harm, Sun, Moon and Mercury cooperate with either group. -

Third, we must note the placements of the predominators, for when they are powerful with respect to the universe (in their own degrees and morning direct) and with respect to the nativity (in the 1st, 2nd, 10th or 11th), their effects are stronger to do good in the case of Jupiter and Venus, bad in the case of Saturn and Mars, and to increase the effects of either group in the case of Sun, Moon and Mercury. In the opposite way, the inoperative planets with respect to the universe (in their fall or in degrees of planets of the opposite sect and evening retrograde) and with respect to the nativity (in the 3rd, 6th, 9th or 12th) have weak effects. The operative planets in between these two extremes have moderate effects. This is how you see if the year is big for good or big for bad in the solar revolution, provided that you factor also the general chronocrators indicated by primary directions, the transits of Saturn and Jupiter, which cooperate, and of course the indications of the nativity itself, which can all indicate intensification or relaxation of these effects.

Fourth, we may note that morning (preceding the Sun) and eastern (in the 4th, 5th , 6th, 10th, 11th and 12th houses) planets have their intensification within the first three months of the solar revolution, and within the first week of the lunar revolution, when they are evening and western, within the last three months of the solar revolution, and within the last week of the lunar revolution, if they are morning and western, or evening and eastern, their intensification lies within the middle six months of the solar revolution, and within the middle two weeks of the lunar revolution. The luminaries intensify in the first or second halves respectively.
