The Essential Stuff

The Scene is Set for the Year

What’s your background orientation for this year in general? Look at the chart shaping, element and modality emphasis.
Yes, you are a hero on a quest but you are a hero in the modern world. You still have a family, work, partner, health, mortgage, health, etc. Life doesn’t stop even when you are on a quest. What are the areas of your life that are emphasised this year? Look at those houses with a stellium.
How do you approach your quest and this year in general? Look at the Ascendant and the Ascendant Ruler.
What can you expect from others/your partner, your public self and your private self/home and family? Look at the other angles.
What are the highlights of this year? Look for angular planets, planets in the same degree as the lunar nodes, planets in the same degree, aspectal configurations, tightly aspected planets.

Quest of the Year

The Sun is like the hero on a quest. Think Harry Potter, think Sylvester Stallone in the movie Rocky.
What quest are you on this year? Look at the house position of the Sun.
What are the obstacles to accomplishing the quest? Look at the dynamic aspects to the Sun.
What are the resources to help you to accomplish the quest? Look at the harmonious aspects to the Sun.
