The Solar Return chart is drawn from birthday to birthday. It is a snapshot of the heavens at the exact time and place where your Sun returns to the exact position it held at birth.
Though there are more than 3 reasons a Solar Returns is an excellent prediction tool, the main ones are:
1) Predict themes that will occur for you during your solar year. With so many predictive techniques available, this tool can help get to the heart of what will be the theme for the year instantly. It defines atmosphere, feelings, emotional states, and what each area of life will experience.
2) Confirm themes that show up in more significant predictive tools. In my professional opinion, I believe more emphasis needs to be placed on other predictive tools such as Progressions.
A Solar Return that shows a similar pattern to a progressed cycle adds additional confirmation. Also, when a natal pattern is repeated, it emphasizes the energy for you.
3) Assist in timing for relocation analysis. The Solar Return is calculated for the place of residence, not the place of birth. If one lives or does business in multiple locations, this is a great tool to utilize for analyzing efforts. For example, a business owner discovered a new business location that had potential. This tool confirmed it. It also confirmed the following year to pull away.
