In astrology, the Saturn return occurs about every 29.5 years, when Saturn returns to the place in your chart it was at the time of your birth (29.5 years is the length of time it takes Saturn to orbit once around the sun). Since these returns occur about every 30 years, most of us can expect to experience three Saturn returns in our lifetime: one around the ages of 27-30 (marking the transition from youth to adulthood), one around the ages of 58-60 (marking the transition from adulthood into the sage), and one (potentially) around the ages of 86-88 (marking a transition into what is to come in the next life).
The Saturn return is a wake-up call, where you may be shocked into re-evaluating your life thus far and the decisions you have made (or continue to make). This is a time of transition from one phase of your life into the next, and if you aren’t prepared, Saturn isn’t afraid to let you know that changes must be made. As a time of transition, you may decide to make changes or let go of emotional baggage that won’t help you in your next phase of life.
I’m approaching my first Saturn return, and I think I have already started to feel the effects, becoming more introspective and reflective than usual. Anyone have any advice for those approaching Saturn returns? Or any horror stories?
