What I Learn't During My Saturn Return

What I Learn't During My Saturn Return

I made a video detailing what happened during my personal Saturn return and advising those what they might expect. I also did a series of Saturn Through the Houses/Signs and what to expect for your Saturn return on YouTube.


Saturn Return refers to a significant astrological phenomenon that occurs when the planet Saturn completes its first orbit around the Sun after an individual's birth. It typically happens around the ages of 28-30, again at 58-60, and once more at 88-90, as Saturn takes approximately 29.5 years to complete its orbit.

Saturn Return is considered a pivotal period in a person's life, often marked by profound personal and professional transformations. Here are some key aspects to understand about Saturn Return:

  1. Self-Reflection and Life Evaluation: During Saturn Return, individuals are prompted to reflect on their lives, goals, and choices made thus far. It is a time of introspection and evaluation, where you may question your life's direction, purpose, and overall satisfaction. This period often brings a sense of urgency to make necessary changes and align your life with your authentic self.

  2. Foundation Building and Responsibility: Saturn is associated with discipline, responsibility, and structure. Saturn Return challenges you to establish a solid foundation for your future, both personally and professionally. It urges you to take ownership of your life, face reality, and make the necessary commitments and sacrifices required for long-term success.

  3. Life Transitions and Challenges: Saturn Return can bring significant life transitions and challenges. It often coincides with career changes, relationship shifts, or shifts in personal identity. These transitions may feel daunting and may involve facing obstacles, limitations, and hard truths. However, they also provide opportunities for personal growth, maturity, and resilience.

  4. Commitment and Relationship Dynamics: Saturn Return commonly coincides with shifts in romantic relationships. It is a time when you reevaluate your commitments and may choose to deepen or end partnerships that no longer align with your long-term goals. This period also emphasizes the importance of building healthy and sustainable relationships based on mutual respect and shared values.

  5. Personal Growth and Life Lessons: Saturn Return serves as a period of profound personal growth. The challenges and lessons encountered during this time often lead to increased self-awareness, wisdom, and a stronger sense of purpose. It encourages you to take responsibility for your actions, learn from past mistakes, and embrace personal maturity.

It is important to note that Saturn Return affects individuals differently, depending on their unique birth chart and life circumstances. While it can be a transformative and challenging period, it also offers opportunities for self-discovery, growth, and laying the groundwork for a more fulfilling future. Embracing the lessons and changes that arise during Saturn Return can lead to greater authenticity and alignment in your life's path.
