Saturn Return


Your Saturn Return occurs roughly every 29.5 years. It’s the date when Saturn returns to the same part of the sky as it was on the day you were born.

While the planet may not reach the exact location until the person is 29 or 30 years old, the influence of the first Saturn return is considered to start around the age of 27.  With the second around the age of 56, and the third around the age of 84.

Astrologists, and those of us who use astrology to guide us, see a Saturn Return as a time of rebirth; a time of awakening.

Is your life as you want it to be? If not, Saturn’s energy will nudge you to make the changes you need to make.

As Saturn returns to the degree in its orbit occupied at the time of birth, a person crosses over a major threshold and enters the next stage of life.

Age 27-31 the first Saturn return, a person leaves youth behind and enters adulthood.

Age 56-60 the second return, a person reaches maturity.

Age 84-90 the third and usually final return, a person enters wise old age. 

A fourth return for those who live to see the age of 114–118 is extremely rare.
