Unlike a typical astrology report online, a professional astrologer has written the interpretations of what to expect for the upcoming birthday year specific to the individual's birth info and current location.
A birthday reading report is also known as an astrological solar return chart report. It is called solar return because solar is the sun and it is returning to the place in its orbit where it was when the person was born.
This is a report that outlines what to expect for your birthday year, i.e., from your birthday this year to your birthday next year. It changes on where you will be on your birthday, so be sure to specify where you will be. And be prepared for the possibility that your birthday sometimes changes the calendar date from year to year. For instance, if your birthdate is October 5th, 1992, your birthday in subsequent years could be October 4th or October 6th! That's when you get to have a two-day birthday. Yay!!! It's because we have a 365-1/4 day calendar year, which is why we have leap year every four years.
Here is a sample of what the report looks like. This is one I just ran for the late Albert Einstein, the German-born theoretical physicist for his solar return for 1916, the year that he wrote his paper on his general theory of relativity.
Solar Return Interpretations
Many people are familiar with their own astrological sign because Sun sign astrology is popular in today's culture. However astrology is a complicated tradition and many other techniques exist. These techniques can be used to gain greater understanding of a person's nature, but also of their current opportunities. A Birth Chart is produced that astrologers can interpret. This you probably know. What you may not know is that astrologers can also calculate a chart for each of your birthdays, and these charts can predict the patterns that you might experience in the forthcoming year. This is because each year the Sun does a full revolution of the Zodiac. Therefore each year the Sun returns to the exact position of your Birth Chart Sun. Wherever you are in the world astrologers can calculate this birthday chart. This chart is called a Solar Return; hence the saying "many happy returns". This chart represents the opportunities and challenges of the forthcoming year. It should also be read in conjunction with your Birth Chart to fully understand the lessons and opportunities available to you in any given year.
When using these Solar Return interpretations, please bear in mind that, inevitably, every chart will contain some contradictory influences. As a result certain interpretations of different items in the same chart may seem difficult to reconcile. However, this may still be an accurate reflection of your chart, as it is likely that you do experience conflicting desires, events and circumstances in your life. Usually an astrologer will synthesize these apparent contradictions in order to present a cohesive and meaningful interpretation of the dilemmas of the chart.
Please also be aware of the fact that each person possesses both positive and negative influences in the chart, and therefore in their lives. The challenge is to accept and overcome the negative influences, so that we can successfully focus on manifesting the positive traits or qualities. This report outlines both influences, and therefore helps us to rise to the challenges during any given year. Any advice given is meant to be an aid the individual in taking responsibility for his or her own life. Ultimately the decision rests with each individual.

Someone close to you may need extra tender loving care, or you may be required to nurture a loved one through an illness or an emotional upset. You may enjoy a change of scenery by visiting a family member, or traveling with a favored female companion. Your private life is changing as you are coming to terms with your own personal needs and those of loved ones. You may say goodbye as a child leaves home. Perhaps you will pick up your home and move, redecorate your home, invite a family member to live with you or welcome the birth of a new child.
THE MOON IN THE 1ST HOUSE
You are in for a bit of a roller coaster ride as far as your feelings this year. Past hurts can be healed as you assess the role of your feelings in your own life, as well as on other people. Objectivity may be difficult as feelings are close to the surface. You may be somewhat self-centered, focused how you feel about yourself
rather than the welfare of others. You may reassess how you deal with the needs of your loved ones versus your own needs, and what support they give you. Embrace your feelings as the surface and find outlets to express them. Soothing activities can really help bolster your self-esteem and give you a new sense of vitality and renewal.

and it is indeed important for you to find a channel for all of your creative energies, otherwise you find yourself slipping into a world of unreality and apathy. You may even find yourself drawn to the world of drugs as a form of escapism. You're the type of person who finds it is important to set aside time each day for meditation, quiet time or artistic pursuits. Quiet activities such as sitting on a beach or listening to soothing music may appeal, in fact any activity which suits your gentle nature. You may find yourself drawn to the mystical or spiritual side of life, in particular pastimes or studies which develop your intuition and understanding of the sacred side of life
THE SUN IN THE 9TH HOUSE
Time to give praise for all that is in your life, and the major theme for the year is growth. If you have been focussed on self-development now is the time to put into practice what you have learnt.

A new chapter of study, such as astrology, religion or philosophy may open up new vistas. People in high places may encourage, or even sponsor, you to pursue your talents in foreign lands.

Your challenge is to avoid being too
distracted by social events and chatty people, or you may have difficulty concentrating. If your path in life demands results, make sure you apply yourself to the tasks at hand and follow through when you give your word. Ask help if needed, delegate where possible. Don't try to talk your way out of trouble, or lash out with a sharp tongue. A good time for networking and improved communications.

This year you are looking for stability, and are less willing to step out of your comfort zone. If you are single, then you are likely to be attracted to a
solid and dependable type of person, someone to whom you can ultimately commit. If you are attached, then you want seek reliability and predictability.

You are a social butterfly right now. As the result of your own plans and activities, your diary is full and so is your calendar.

are changing. It is possible that your change in social contacts results from a change in relationship status, or other life change such as a move of location, birth of a child, marriage or divorce.

Mars in the house of money and possessions can indicate disputes over money. It is time to change the relationship between money and you. If you have always been frugal you may be challenged to lighten up, to give more generously. Re-evaluate your finances, decide what you value most. If you have been a spendthrift then you need to tighten your purse strings. Either way an event or a person changes your financial direction. A monetary gift may give you financial confidence; a financial adviser may assist you in handling your resources.

If your money is jointly invested, or if you are involved in a business enterprise then your joint resources are likely to change. If your money is not tied up with anyone else, then it is your own investments that are affected. Consolidate debts or debt collectors and bankruptcy may be just around the corner.

If money feels tight, perhaps you are unhappy with your work, or you undervalue your worth, or you are working only for money, or you hate your job. Meditate on the big picture.

If you are true to yourself you are likely to move forward in leaps and bounds. If not, changes will occur that challenge you to live with purpose and integrity. Resisting these changes is likely to leave your health depleted, and cause unhappiness. It is possible that the underlying fear prompting you to try to retain control is simply a mirage, and facing your fears brings peace.

Or you may have a crisis of conscience which causes you to take some new course of action, realizing it is the right thing to do.
