Saturn Return

Saturn Return overview

The Saturn Return is an astrological occurrence that usually occurs twice in a natural life span.  It takes Saturn 30 years to make the complete circle of your chart.  The planet Saturn, the stern taskmaster, returns to the place it was when you were born twice for most people — three times if you’re very lucky.  The first time it returns is when you are between 28 and 30 years of age.  It returns once again when you are between the ages of 58 and 60.  If you are fortunate enough to live 90 years, you will see it again between the ages of 88 and 90.

The Saturn Return, which lasts about two years, is a time for introspection and self-evaluation. It is a time of taking responsibility and often a time for making serious choices.

On this site, we will examine the details of the First Saturn Return and the Second Saturn Return.

The arrival of the first Saturn Return underscores one of the pivotal times in your life. It’s more than just a change of the first digit of your age. More profoundly, it’s a time for some deep self-assessment. You can read more about the First Saturn Return in another post — click here to read about the First Saturn Return.

  1. I have completely changed my life this year. Ended a relationship, sold home, left my job, bought new car and furniture. Then travelled to Anerica for a month. A lady I spoke to last week in a park told me I was a classic example of Saturn Return. It took no strength to do it all. I woke up New Years Day and decided to do it all. I could not have done this even a year ago. I’m living on my own for the first time in my life and I’m loving it. I was always afraid of it

  2. Hello Celestina!

    How do we read about Saturn in Capricorn on your website-

    It is not underlined nor are several others-

    How do we access your amazing visions??

    Thanks!

    1. Yikes. I sent you here and forgot I hadn’t posted the Capricorn stuff yet. I will get to it ASAP. Sorry, Barbara. We are still developing this one.

  3. Hello-

    Do you know when you might get the Saturn in Capricorn

    information up?

    I’m looking forward to seeing it when you do!

    Thank-you!

    Barbara

    1. I’m sorry it’s taking me a while. It may be a couple of more weeks. I had an article for publication I wanted to finish, and I turned that in yesterday. I sincerely appreciate your interest.

  4. I’m trying very hard to understand this… Lol I had a dream 2 was ago that I was.
    . Actually on another planet and could turn to the right and see Saturn and it’s rings just as close as the sun is to us, if not even closer. I knew it was profound and I’ve simply been waiting for the knowledge sn9understanding of its meaning…. So coming across this article is in my mind, confirmation that I am in alignment with the vibrations of the cosmos….. But pls explain to me in more simpler terms if you would. I desire greatly to understand. For a few months I’ve been told by several different people that I am in a transit period that is rare and extremely important….. Based upon my birthchart
    … BTW my birth chart is unusual in itself….. Every line is on one side of the chart. Dec. 12.19.1978….. 6:37 pm pls she’d some light on this for me. This website is the closest I’ve come to attaining the answers I seek…. *MbRs*♐💫🔅🔥
