We are going to take a look at the life turning point at ages 38-44 and how it is indicated in our chart.
This is the turning point where we move from early adulthood to mid-life. This is a period when most of us are evolving to the point that we can reconcile with ourselves and are more comfortable with who we truly are. This is a time when we are restructuring our association with ourselves on a more profound level. A sense of individualization is occurring (which can be at a very rapid pace), due to the major influences taking place in our lives.
During this age frame, we are experiencing transiting Saturn in trine to its natal position and Neptune in square to its natal position. These aspects signify inner transformations and a realistic approach to who we are. There may even be a feeling of urgency with our quest in life, with dealings with our ego and the ongoing search for “who am I?” for those that feel they need answers.
There is no formal training when it comes to what many term as the midlife crisis and no one can say they are prepared, particularly because no one knows exactly what to expect. Each individual goes through their own personal issues and then an awakening takes place. This is a time of great soul searching and a desire for inner change which often coincides with outer change, as one seems to affect the other.
The body is also undergoing physical changes during this time in our lives, and those who have placed too much attention on their physical appearance may become depressed with what they see in the mirror. Many will go deep within to find out what they actually have to offer, as for some the appearance has been held in an elevated position most of their lives. The ego is actually in a somewhat delicate state, as the inner self gains supremacy and control, at least for those who are searching for something more.
This is often considered a turning point as we truly begin to question who we are and relentlessly want answers. Many turn to deeper more spiritual subjects such as Astrology and the mystical side of life, in order to further their pursuits as we hope to find some answers to some truly profound questions.
This is an awakening stage as many who have been wrapped up in the material world and have come up empty, strive for a greater meaning in life.
Doors that have been boarded up previously now beginning to open and a deep restlessness is awakening within. The search continues and those longing for answers begin to question their existence, opening the channels from within and making a more intimate contact with the inner self. The process has begun as we raise our consciousness and continue on with our mission.
At age 42, we are also experiencing the Uranus opposition with itself. This intensifies the search and often we reach for something new to bring to the forefront of life. Some reach out radical solutions and this is when some people become bored with life and want something that is exciting and exhilarating. We can also become a bit eccentric. We want something more that what the confines that normal life offers.
These new life expressions can often show up on short notice. We can make untimely changes that will affect us and those around us. These changes can often be quite disruptive for family members that are used to life being steady and remaining solid and secure. Some but certainly not everyone may leave our marriage partners and start a new life. In many cases, the change is sudden and comes without much warning. As this time approaches, be prepared for change and transformation as this is a very intense period. Be ready for disruption to the norm and be prepared to welcome the new.
