We thought we would share some information on the Saturn Return which normally takes place at approximately 29, 58 and 84.

As many of you are aware, 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 and these are referred to as transiting planets. All of the planets eventually return to their location at the moment of our birth (natal chart placement) but the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) take a long time to complete this cycle. Saturn takes between 27-29 years to complete one full cycle. Uranus takes 84 years and the other two outer planets (I am referred to Pluto as a planet) take much longer and we do not live long enough to experience their return.

Saturn has a profound impact in our lives. It produces situations that can be stressful (if we so allow) and presents us with lessons whenever it (Saturn) becomes activated in our charts. Saturn is the teacher and it presents us with a crossroad in our development. We are forces to take a good look at our lives and we should make any needed changes. These times can be very trying and can last a significant period of time, especially if there are other planetary forces at work during the same period.

We have touched on houses and their energies in previous posts. Depending on which house Saturn is located in your birth chart and what aspects it is making to other planets, these particular areas of life (houses) will become activated. The intensity and duration depends largely on the other planets that are stimulating the area, how long they transit 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 28-30, 57-59 or 83-85, you likely are experiencing your Saturn’s return. At Holm Astrology, we go deep into your Astrology Chart to look at how Saturn’s return period is or will affect you. We can assist with an understanding of the lessons being tabled by locating Saturn’s position in your chart, its natal aspects, its transiting aspects as well as its progressed aspects. Armed with this information, you can better understand the lessons at hand.

When Saturn has completed its cycle, you can be certain that a new person will emerged with a greater understanding of self and experiences (now behind you) that should have been well learned.
