Saturn Return: Rite of Passage
(Cycle of Maturity)
27-30 and 55-60
In astrology, the years between 27-30 are considered to be one of the most infamous milestones in our lives. By those
trained in astrology, it is looked upon as a time of trepidation, caution and awareness, by those who have been through
it, there is a sigh of relief. Usually by 30 the cycle has completed and the transformation is complete.
The planet Saturn has long been given a rap as a planet of trouble as it
represents our karma, from previous lifetimes.
Many look at it and see it where our troubles lie, where there are restrictions in life, and where we can expect to find the
majority of our earthly problems. Though many of these things are true, without the planet Saturn, we would probably
never mature into the souls we are meant to be, without encountering what it is that we need to learn, grow into and
understand in our lives in order to get on with our soul’s mission.
Even the glyph of Saturn represents restriction, as we have the cross of
matter above what seems to be a hook on the
bottom. The “hook like” part of the glyph is the symbolism of our lessons. Saturn has a way of having us go through
our lessons without us getting around them. Symbolically, the hook like shape on the bottom of the glyph represents the
restriction of “hooking us into” our life lessons representing our maturity when we go through them and learn what we
have to learn.
None of us is without this placement so all of us has some sort of
“special” lesson to learn in our soul growth. This is
our cycle of soul maturing in a nutshell. It can also be likened to what can be termed our first mini “Mid life crisis.”
Because in essence it is a crisis of sorts. This is where we re-evaluate what our lives are for ourselves, what am I
meant to do, what direction should I take, what it is that I have been born for? All of these questions are legitimate,
profound and mature. It is our awakening, if you will, of leaving the child behind and becoming the adult we are meant
Some common life experiences that one may experience in this time period are:
buying a house for the first time,
starting our family, getting our first full-time job, changing residence, buying our first car, maybe even having
a complete career change, or for some of us, going back to school. On the flip side: this could be where people
divorce, lose their house, have to start over in their career, experience the loss of a dear one for the first time
in life, experience financial
The key thing to know and understand in our Saturn return is that whatever
lessons we are meant to learn and go through,
are there to better us on a soul level. They are not meant to punish us or cause us pain. But our resistance to them can
cause us pain. Generally speaking, if you are “on” your life path mission, the universe will provide the next creative
step for you and add to make your life more fulfilling and purposeful. If you are not “on” your life path, the universe will strip
away what is not needed and breakdown the unnecessary “stuff” that is blocking you. If you can learn to recognize what
that is, your transition will not be that tough. If you cannot see it and resist the change, you will experience your greatest
hour of tribulation.
It is also important to note that Saturn return’s take 2 ½ years to
complete. This is because Saturn takes 29 ½ years to
travel through your birth chart one time. It spends 2 ½ years in every house it enters, thereby, teaching us something in
our lives at any one given time.
In having your birth chart done and knowing where Saturn is, one can get a
clear understanding of what “area” the lesson
is in (by the placement of the house Saturn is in) as well as the quality of the lesson (the sign Saturn is in) that we are
meant to learn. For example: if Saturn is natally in your 6th house (House of work) in the sign of Gemini (communication),
the individual’s lesson could be to learn how to “speak up” at work on a daily basis. Saturn is lessons and Gemini is
communication. If Saturn is natally in our 2nd house (Possessions $$), in the sign of Taurus (our own money,
values and beliefs), the lesson could be to learn to value your own money and not be a spendthrift, and also to create
and stand by your personal beliefs and values without getting influenced by others.
This can be quite traumatic for an individual if not handled with
responsibility, maturity, and patience. At whatever age
the first return hits you, simply double the age and you will have roughly the time of your second return which is commonly
referred to as the “Mid life crisis” we so commonly hear.
As Saturn is an earth sign, there is a quality of practicality, reality and
being grounded as we go through this cycle in our
lives. So keep attentive as to what life is telling you and understand as best you can what your birth chart reveals if you
choose to have it done.
