PostSubject: Saturn Return   Sat Apr 30, 2011 7:35 am

Saturn Return
Molly Hall, About.com




This is when the planet Saturn comes back to meet your natal Saturn. It takes about 29.5 years for this slow-mover to return to where it was when you were born. The Saturn return hits in the late twenties, and its impact is felt into the early thirties. There's a second (and possibly a third for the long-lived among us) Saturn return that hits between age 57-60.


Time to Grow Up:

The Saturn Return is a wake-up call, and this is why so many fear it's sobering realities. If you've spent your twenties in a fog, coasting on your youthful charm, it becomes obvious that your foundation is too flimsy for the long haul. When you're young, there seems infinite time to decide what you want to be "when you grow up." Well, Father Time swoops down as you're nearing 30 to say, you're all grown up now, pick a path.


Time to Get Real:

Sometimes we make life choices before we really know who we are. At the Saturn return, some of these choices are revealed to be out of sinq with our true destiny. And it's a big deal, since there may be marriages and whole careers up for review. The U.S. Census reports a peak of divorces around age 30, when promises made in the blush of youth don't match the core of either person as they approach this turning point. On the other hand, Saturn may bring a fated relationship, that leads to a serious commitment with long-term potential.


The Dreams of Youth:

The Saturn return brings with it the pressure of time, and often the first awareness of your own mortality. You take stock of what it would take to achieve those big dreams, and often a sense of dread at ever getting there. But happily, it's a time when things like disciplne, focus and clear-sight come in to give you a kind of pragmatic hope. You'll figure out what's still possible, and make the changes necessary to get on track.

It's a crossroads period, when life-altering decisions are made . For example, at age 30, Vincent Van Gogh became a painter, instead of a minister.


Stripping Down:

The Saturn return often creates a crisis that puts you face-to-face with your fears. And many of these have deep roots in your psyche, but they're also about living up to societal expectations. Saturn causes a mini earthquake to the foundations, and this enables you to shake off what's not really You. Saturn's other alias is Lord of Karma, and here's the test of whether you can become your own authority. Can you discover an unshakable core self within you that will be the basis for a lifetime of growth?


Saturn and Depression:

Saturn has been known as the Great Malefic, whose transits are met with dread. But Saturn is simply the instigator of change, all meant to lead you toward healing and a real foundation of self. If you're in your Saturn return, and finding it hard to cope, get used to letting go of what's not working. When you hold on to things that Saturn is trying to break up, that's when the suffering is compounded.

Check out one of the Saturn return blogs, so you can share experiences, and not feel so alone. You'll soon see that most people feel confused, lost and even despairing or hopeless at this time.


Learning about your Saturn:

If you don't know your Saturn sign, look it up on the birth chart. Astrologers often say it's important to "Do Your Saturn," and this means taking tangible steps to master those qualities. Read about your Saturn sign, and look at how it aspects your other planets.

During my Saturn return, I found a journal with the Aries Ram in it (my Saturn sign) and this is where I worked out my thoughts. Seek out interpretations, and spend time figuring out for yourself what the Taskmaster is expecting. Read up on Saturn in each of the four elements, the qualities, houses and of course, the all-important Zodiac sign.


Rewards and Responsibilities:

The Saturn return makes it clear what you've been up to for the last 29 or so years. Some "old souls" that made wise choices from the get-go may find it to be a passage where things are solidified. Not all marriages fall apart, and some grow stronger when they make it through this maturation phase together.


Another Chance:

If you resist the changes that Saturn brings, there's always the second go-round. But that isn't advised, since it might be a farther fall to the bottom. The example of a Saturn resister would be someone devoted to a job that makes them miserable, or stuck in a relationship that's harmful to their spirit. Just like the I-Ching says, chaos is another name for opportunity. And listening to the pressures and doubts of your Saturn return brings on the breakdown before the breakthrough. Saturn is trying to lead you to yourself.


The Lowdown:

As Lord of Karma, Saturn brings you what you've earned through your disciplined pursuit of goals and experience. You'll find out during the Saturn return what you've manifested up to that point, how well you've used your talents. No wonder it's a feared transition -- this is like the mid-semester exam!

In myth, Saturn is also the God of the Harvest, and it's harvestime during your Saturn return. If nothing's been sown, and therefore, very little reaped, you'll realize it's time to get busy. The scythe of Saturn prunes, cuts away the useless bits, and that can feel like a death of the self. Saturn often brings a death to the old ways of doing things, but later on, you're likely to say, "Good riddance!" The death phase is never easy, but keep in mind that rebirth will come.

Saturn's realm is responsibility, and will show you how to grow through relationships, raising childing, pursuing a challenging career, finding discipine for an art, etc. If you've indulged in wishful thinking, Saturn finds a way to make this painfully obvious. It's not just designed to humiliate you, but to inspire you to stand on solid ground.

Saturn is like the wise old man who sees right through your excuses, and empty boasts. Try to make friends with Saturn through discipline and finding a step-by-step path to your goals. It's the simple, but not always easy task of making your dream a reality by doing it on a daily basis.

When serious Saturn overtakes your life during this hugely important initiation into adulthood, it's important to remember that 'This too shall pass.' The harshness of this period can make you feel washed up, parched, dishillusioned. But it can also be a time of taking stock, liberating yourself from all kinds of baggage, and starting anew with a clearer sense of purpose. It's never too late to be who you were meant to be. The Saturn return reminds you of what truly important, and makes sure you're on the path to claim your highest potential.

An average person has Sadesati thrice in life, and faces the smaller harmful transits many times too. Often one is unaware that he is under the influence of Saturn.Are you also under Sadesati or harmful Saturn transits.

Hmm, well I am way past 30 but I do feel the Saturn return essence at work in my life, particularly this morning. Karma has been weighing heavily on my mind and as you guys know from my recent posts, depression had crept in. Instead of drawing away from the forum like I usually do when this happens, i actually stuck with it reading whatever was posted and it actually helped. One thing that Solane put up in the Affirmations and Inspiration section about action breaking depression particularly seemed to take root in my subconscious because this morning I awoke full of ideas but also with the motivation to carry them through. I was thinking "don't think about it - just DO". And I did. And I feel better emotionally and mentally.

It's May and my birth month so it is a natural time to take stock and evaluate my life. I feel overwhelmed with things that I need to let go of...I deeply sense that I have grown so much since my last birthday and I no longer need certain things around me. Return of Saturn time. LOL>release and rejuvenate. I turned the calendar this morning and sat there for a full five minutes looking at each of the dates on this month. I felt my solar plexus activate. I chose to start the day differently - creatively. I felt myself smiling. Next I made a coffee and sat down to crochet for a bit. Whilst doing that I had a flood of unfinished projects enter my mind. I can do this. I can work on the things that I do still need in my life and put aside what no longer serves. I felt myself becoming more comfortable in my own skin.

The soul knows who we are even if we don't. Listen to your inner guidance, follow your heart and keep your faith in what comes from both. Don't let the outer critics sway you.

Thanks Solane for your always informative astrology reports. They help me reconnect to myself. urok

The first Saturn return is perhaps the hardest, the second is more of a review and the third would be a review of it all. My first Saturn Return started at 21, and it was a total weeding out, and looking back, though I had a hard time, those were marvelous Karmic lessons and made what I am today. Looking forward for the next one, around 50 because I have some things to "teach" this process as well.

The weeding out has been intense for me. But I feel positive about it overall. Some things we need to release and are unable to are well supported now and easier to remove from our sphere.

Yes Moonie,

The age 21 was a manger one for me also, I would have to say that's when I BE-come more Spiritually AWARE. Faced the DARK NIGHT of my SOL. Find my STAR-SOUL name * SOUL- Lane Star * and was given the choice to go see a Psychic or a Psychologist.

So yes again Moonie,

Be-cause I also feel that I'm looking FOREWARD to my next one also, for that matter, I tend to always start mine earlier, by a few years. I feel BE-ing as I'm just turning 47, that I al-READY started my 50th one, it started about Jan. this year.

Let the SOL's Journey's BE-gin Like a Star @ heaven Wink Like a Star @ heaven
