Birthday/Solar Return Reading

The Birthday/Solar Return reading is the BEST one to get if your birthday is approaching—whether you are new to astrology or have been having readings for years. Your Solar Return chart is your best opportunity to take charge of your yearand your life. If your birthday is not approaching or has happened more than a month ago, you might prefer a specific themed reading, found here. Also, if you do not have an accurate (to the minute) time of birth, your Solar Return chart will not be accurate. In that case you’d be better off with a Natal and Transits reading or a Transits and Progressions reading.

Your birthday is your Personal New Year’s Day and the day before is your Personal New Year’s Eve—a great time for forming resolutions, goals, visions, and affirmations. The best way to do that is to know the themes of your coming year—shown in your Solar Return or Birthday chart. It’s best to get this reading in the month before your birthday when you’re mopping up the themes of the previous year and the themes of the coming year are pressing forward. This reading will help you hit the ground running on your birthday.

In your birthday reading you’ll DISCOVER…

  • The themes and issues that will be prominent for you this year, so you can recognize and use them as they emerge during the year.
  • This year’s upcoming life-changes, including what they mean, how to handle them for best success, how long they’ll last and when they’ll be over.
  • My Personal Year, a seasonal model that’s useful every year for the rest of your life, so you can plan projects years ahead if necessary, using your own natural rhythm.
  • Suggestions for Personal New Year’s resolutions, intentions or goals, so you can hit the ground running on your birthday.

Know in advance what’s on your destiny path this year—or CHANGE IT:

  • Your birthday chart describes the themes of your upcoming year and this chart changes depending on the location you spend your birthday in.
  • You can get a better birthday chart by traveling for your birthday.
  • Traveling across time zones makes the greatest difference.
  • In a reading you can tell your astrologer several locations you’re interested to travel to for your birthday and she’ll help you pick the best chart for you.
  • You might want to schedule your birthday reading in advance to make it possible for you to make travel plans.

THIS READING is for you if. . .

  • Your birthday is coming and you want to prepare by aligning with the themes shown in your upcoming Solar Return chart.
  • You’re able to take charge of your destiny by traveling to get a better Solar Return chart.
  • You want to know the best choice of several locations you have in mind.

Julia's interpretations of my chart were EXACT. This is not a fufu, hand-wavy, crystal ball shop. My impression is that they are studied and methodical. That, in combination with sense of curiosity, warmth and compassion toward their clients. -Frankie


I experienced a super-positive in-person reading (Jamie is warm, engaging and caring) around issues of great stress (divorce, childbirth, addiction). Time and time again as I encounter a period of charged events I dig out the chart and right there on the paper are signs and signals of peak periods of change, just as she said.” -Sabina


I so enjoyed my reading with Fran Xin Yi and Jamie! I asked some pretty challenging questions about relocating, and they were able to help me discern the nuances and type of lifestyle I might have in the various places that I had chosen based on my natal chart. It was SO informative, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. ~Lisa F.


Julia was spot on for all of my qualities and she provides the best take home material to review. She was very personal and made you feel comfortable during the reading. -Nancy


I feel so lucky to have found Jamie! I left feeling empowered and equipped to build a satisfying and fulfilling marriage with my fiancé. Because of Jamie, I have a better understanding of our strengths and weaknesses in our partnership. – Jana


I had been debating whether to have a reading done but ultimately I opted to do it. It turned out to be the right decision. I am so happy I connected with Fran. Based on information from my natal chart and Saturn return, Fran was able address questions I’ve been having for while about big things in my life. I am really grateful for insight and guidance! Thank you! -Julieta F.


I have had no less than 20 readings from numerous astrologers in the last 8 years from fairs to top branded astrologers and none- I repeat none have even come anywhere close to the skill, the precision, nor the detail that Julia gave to me. -Lulu


It’s amazing how, not even knowing me, Jamie could have such an accurate insight into my personality and the things that drive me. -Lillian


Thank you Fran. You’re on your way to being one of the world’s best astrologers! Thank you again. ~ Maria G.


Wow is all I can say! I have had no less than 20 readings from numerous astrologers in the last 8 years from fairs to top branded astrologers and none- I repeat none have even come anywhere close to the skill, the precision, nor the detail that Julia gave to me. -Rich


Jamie finally saved me from the terminal horror of other astrologers. -K. W.


I had a phenomenal astrological reading today with Fran Xin Yi. She was thoroughly prepared, articulate, precise and tremendously knowledgeable. I was so impressed that I plan to schedule an additional reading within the month to delve deeper into particular areas. Really outstanding! -Holly H.
