Each of us experiences a Solar Return every year within 2 days of our birthday. This simply means that the Sun in its annual orbit “returns” to the exact degree that it occupied on the day that you were born. A Solar Return chart is an astrology chart calculated for the moment when the Sun returns to its exact natal position. It is a powerful technique for examining the themes and issues that will arise for you during your Solar Year – the year that runs from birthday to birthday. The Solar Return each year can be likened to a personal New Year, and offers insights into the energy of the entire year to come. The Solar Return chart helps you to examine this new perspective on your life and what your year may bring.



Samuel once hated astrology. When he was a fundamentalist Baptist minister, he used religion to avoid astrology’s lessons. Later he realized he disliked astrology because he didn’t know what it all meant. He was born on the “cusp” of two signs and didn’t know which one he was.

So, he went to an astrologer. The astrologer’s uncanny insights into his life went beyond the pale of guesswork. Convinced it was all a trick, the former academic spent 10 years doing charts and studying astrology himself.

Now, over 25+ years later, and his deepest love and life centers around astrology. He consults, writes, and teaches astrology full-time. He has written for Ebony magazine, New York magazine,, Pride magazine,, and The Mountain Astrologer.

He also serves on a few astrology organizational boards, like the International Society for Astrological Research’s board of directors, and he’s an entrepreneur who helps others build their businesses as mind-body-spirit practitioners. His life is a lesson on how you should watch what you hate. It might be the love of your life.
