This workshop presents the theory and practice of solar returns, beginning with its historical variations, but mainly focusing on and hands-on approach to give participants the opportunity to leave the workshop feeling confident in the use of solar return methodology. Here we examine the use of Solar Returns to evaluate the significance of particular years, and the themes they present, as well as the use of multiple consecutive solar returns to understand the flow of time over longer time intervals than a year. We will also examine common life themes and how they look in solar returns.
