There are a large number of our readers that are between the ages of 24-35. Accordingly, we thought we would share our thoughts on the Saturn Return.

The natal or birth chart is a snapshot of the heavens at the moment of birth. From that moment on the planets continue on their rotational path. Most planets eventually return to their location at the moment of our birth, with the exception of the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) as they take much longer to complete their cycle. Saturn takes between 27 to 29 years to complete its cycle. Uranus takes 84 years and the other two most outer planets take much longer and we do not live long enough to experience their return.

Saturn has a profound impact in our lives. It produces or presents us with lessons that can be quite stressful (depending on our reaction to issues in life) whenever it becomes activated in our charts. It’s like we have come to a crossroad in our development and we are forces to take a good look at our lives and make some needed changes. These times can be very trying and can last a significant period of time, especially if there are other planetary energies at work over the same period.

We have touched a little on houses in previous posts and will go deeper into these areas of life later in other posts. Depending on which house Saturn can be found in your birth chart and what aspects it is making to other planets, these particular areas of life (houses) will become activated during the Saturn return. The intensity and duration depends largely on the other planets that are stimulating the area and how long they transit (transit is the motion of the planet) and what aspects (aspects are angles between planets) they make to each other.

If you are going through a stressful period and you are between the ages of 27-29, this is without a doubt due to Saturn’s return to its natal position in your birth chart. We, at Holm Astrology, can go deeper into your Astrology chart and have a look at how Saturn’s return will influence you and how to soften the lessons it will present. When Saturn has completed its return cycle, you can be certain that a new person will emerged with a greater understanding of self and with valuable information in hand due to the experiences.

This period around the age 29 is when we go through our full Saturn return. Some people are far more sensitive to the energies and can feel the influence as much as 2 years prior to its conjunction with its natal position.

The second Saturn return comes when we are 58. Again, some individuals will feel the energies as much as 2 years prior, but the most powerful influence occurs when it is at its tightest conjunction. This return differs from our first Saturn return as we are hopefully more mature and many are approaching the end of their working career. We will touch on the second Saturn return at a later date.
