A solar return & solidifying preference for reading strangers

I prefer to read the charts of people I don’t know, when I know someone I can’t help but put my own thoughts & wishes upon them. This is also the reason I look to other astrologers to read my chart so I’m not guilty of seeing what I want to see instead of what is actually and factually there. I first realized this when I read the chart of my plutonic love see entry here:

A Dedication to a Plutonic Love

He was due to get married & I kept thinking this wedding is not going to happen. I didn’t see it in the solar return. There are certain indicators when looking for a year of marriage in solar return such as
1 Venus rising
2 Planets in the 7th (marriage) 9th (legal activities) 3rd (rules contracts)
3 Mars, Pluto, or Saturn angular
4 The Midheaven coming to the Ascendant indicates an event

These are some vague examples; I never predict anything without 3 placements AKA three confirmations
You can find extensive interpretation tools here:

I believed he would never marry her, when in fact the wedding, the event; the reception was placed on hold due to weather constraints. A natural disaster swooped in. An instructor would later say how appropriate Pluto rules hurricanes, tornadoes etc. Plutonic Love indeed. In any event I leaped to conclusions seeing what I wanted to see because I wanted him, had I not known him perhaps I would’ve seen the event not occurring or rather being postponed, instead of having bouts of delusions. Please god let him leave her at the altar. Yes I know I’m going to hell for but hey I would rather party with the sinners than cry with the saints!
Fast forward 2 years: my friend has been the victim of identity theft someone has committed crimes using his identification. I read for him early in the year & didn’t predict this. My friend is an upstanding citizen, a marvelous person that I certainly didn’t foresee being wrapped up in any troublesome legality. He travels often, for instance in this year alone he probably has taken 8 trips for leisure…. he has a loaded 3rd house-Moon Pluto, Jupiter & Saturn so travel is essential. This year however he had Saturn planet of hardship and restriction in the Solar Return 9th house I advised him to not schedule a trips abroad & that if he did he would experience some sort of issue. I was thinking detainment, delays or bad weather. The other day he called me & told me all about his stolen ID & the crimes etc he said I know it’s in my chart & I’m like no no no. He demanded I find it! I know it’s there, he said. He is an Aquarius ya know when they are right they are right. So I pull up the chart & see Saturn in the 9th house. The 9th house rules far off travel, higher learning & legalities! The 9th house is on the natal 3rd house, the 3rd house rules siblings, and general correspondence. While traveling to California his home state he received a letter stating his license had been suspended due to 3 DWI’s. He is now stuck in California sorting this out. To add further insight he has Neptune in the Solar Return 7th house, I know he is in a relationship so when I read for him I inquired if both of them were being honest with one another. Yes! Of course he assured me, but the 7th house doesn’t only rule partnerships, it rules open enemies. & lawsuits! Neptune rules alcohol and scandal. Damn so someone has stolen his id, blaming him for their 3 DWI’s he has found out this via a letter while he was traveling cross country. My mind is alive with insight mini landmines are going off. Why didn’t I see this before! Because I know him that is why, an astrological lesson learned.

The 3rd house in Astrology

The Third house is naturally ruled by the 3rd astrological sign which is Gemini; the 3rd house rules Elementary Education, siblings, short trips and communication. Planets placed here become more intellectually based.

The Sun in the 3rd house has a curious mind that enjoys taking in all types of information. You may be restless and live for short getaways learning new subjects and spending time with brothers and sisters. You have a thirst for knowledge that will live inside of you most of your life

The Moon in the 3rd house gives you a knack for expressing your feelings. The 3rd house is intellect on a mundane level and the moon rules feelings. You may start off a conversation with the phrase “I feel as though…” You probably learn via intuition and pick up on non verbal cues while communicating. You may intelectualize your feelings.

Mercury is at home in the 3rd house, Mercury rules Gemini and the 3rd house is all about mental curiosity. Your mind is sharp; you communicate easily and are often on the go. You enjoy talking to just about anyone! You juggle many balls/agendas in the air at once with a possibility of dropping one. Nervousness is likely as your mental energy is scattered about.

Venus in the 3rd house finds they require constant communication in love. I have this placement and I always say write me a letter; send me a text, call me and email me! When the planet of love is placed in the 3rd house you enjoy short trips with your partner and mental stimulation is a must, the way to the heart is via conversation.

Mars in the 3rd house may find themselves arguing  with siblings or anyone in there general community. I have this placement as well, Mars represents aggression and the 3rd house is communication indicating I’m aggressive in my surrounding environment or where I feel comfortable. I’m generally aggressive in speech; if I think it I say it.

Jupiter in the 3rd house indicates good luck via travel and good relations with siblings and neighbors.

Saturn in the 3rd house may be a good placement for authors or those that use meantal capabilities geared toward accounting, statistics and anything that requires significant concentration. May indicate depression as Saturn has a restrictive quality and the 3rd house rules the mind.

Uranus in the 3rd house oh dear erratic in speech, flashes of mental genius, you make a point of expressing your unique nature. Your mind is probably years ahead of society; you have the gift of invention

Neptune in the 3rd house gives concern over logical thought. People with Neptune in the 3rd house MUST think and carefully select what they wish to convey, in a serious conversation perhaps they should write out their thoughts beforehand. They constantly feel as though others do not understand them this is partly becuase they do not communicate effectively. Gives an artistic mind with abstract thought patterns which is best suited for creative environments

Pluto in the 3rd house gives a deep penetrating mind. You seek to get to the very root of an issue. When you speak you have the ability to transform other individual’s opinions. Great for any activity that require a penetrating mind.
