Jon Parks - Your Solar Return Chart As A Plan For The Year

Your Solar Return Chart As A Plan For The Year
Now that we've cast it, what do we do with it? Is it just another set of transits, or does this chart have some special information for us? Jon will talk about how he uses the solar return chart by itself, how he uses it with the natal chart, and what he thinks it means for the year it covers. Jon will also present some basic guidelines that have worked well for him.


Jon Parks holds a BS in Physics and a MA in Philosophy, from Northern Illinois University. He is a past President of the now disbanded Chicago Chapter of NCGR and is currently on the Board of the Friends Of Astrology, as Director of Education. He is a member of AFAN, NCGR, ISAR, Friends of Astrology and the Theosophical Society and has been involved with astrology in the Chicago area for over thirty-five years and lectures on diverse topics. Jon is a long time student of philosophy and astrology and is interested in their connection to each other and to science, psychology, and history. He is currently learning about Hellenistic and Traditional Astrology and what they have to teach us about our history and how they could be integrated into the modern practice of astrology.
