6 Things You Can Do During Your Saturn Return

6 Things You Can Do During Your Saturn Return

This Guest Post is by David Thomas.

A Saturn return is a specific time when Saturn completes a full round around the Zodiac and finally returns to its original position. You can find its origin position based on your birth date. A Saturn return is significant because it happens only once every 29.4 years!

Each return lasts for 2 and a half years each, so you should experience your Saturn returns around ages 27, 57, and 87. Significant changes are bound to come your way at this time, and it would be prudent to make the most of it.

The Lowdown On Saturn Returns

Saturn, Capricorn’s ruling planet, governs matters of time, structure, order, and law. It is the embodiment of stability, and so its movement can cause major shake ups in your life.

Whether it’s your love life or your career, or even your relationships with friends or family, Saturn brings big changes in its wake.

So you’d best get comfortable because it’s about to get uncomfortable.

A Saturn return is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you can expect to have to leave your comfort zones. But on the other hand, leaving your comfort zones can free you and allow you to grow even further. Saturn’s return brings hard-earned lessons, but they are critical if you are to remain true to your karma.

And don’t think you can run away from all of this, either. You may be able to hide away and twiddle your thumbs for this return, but you’re only delaying the inevitable. Not only have you not grown at all, but Saturn will be back the next go around. So best take your lumps now and come out better for it!

With that sobering thought in mind, here are 6 things you can do during your Saturn return. If you make the most of this time, you’ll definitely be well on your way to being a better person living a better life.

Do Some Much Needed Self-Reflection

The first step to maximizing this unique time of growth is to reflect upon yourself. It’s a good time as any for you to take stock of your life and see where things went right and where things went wrong.

It’s best if you take your time with this one and be completely honest with yourself. Even if it’s hard, you need to take a look at the things you’ve been avoiding up until this point.

Of course, you don’t need to have all the answers from the word go. But by asking these questions, you put yourself in a mindset of improvement and resolution. It means that you are aligned with Saturn’s influence and are ready to learn your needed lessons.

Ask For The Help You Need

Of course, no one goes at it alone. There will be times where you will find yourself at your breaking point. And for these times, you will need to call upon others for help.

Ironically, this may be the time where you feel the most isolated. With that in mind, remember that your support system will be there for you. Your friends, your family, and anyone you are close to are there to help you along your way.

Don’t be afraid to reach out. Get counseling, therapy, a checkup, whatever you need. And always remember, you are not alone.

Check Your Health

Your return will test all facets of your life. Not only will you face tests spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, but also physically.

Like the last section advises, now is not the time to be ignoring your health. You are strong, and you’re always growing stronger, but you aren’t invincible.

Make sure to eat healthily and stay active. Don’t skip your checkups, and stay on top of any health issues before they get worse. If you are in good working order, the stresses of life will train you instead of break you.

Enjoy The Process

The last few sections may have seemed grim, but they’re good warnings so that you avoid common pitfalls. Additionally, this is also a time of growth and beauty.

Examine yourself and your life from time to time. While things may seem uncertain, always acknowledge the progress you see and the progress you don’t. Celebrate your little victories. Celebrate them alone and also with others.

Keep joy and gratitude in your heart, and it will bolster your resolve. The fruits of your labor are yours to enjoy, so don’t deny yourself that.

Keep An Open Mind

Never forget that Saturn’s return is a time of great upheaval. So prepare yourself and let go of preconceived notions.

By the end of your return, you may be very different from who you used to be a long time ago. Things that used to be familiar to you may feel alien now, and you might not even recognize your past self!

With that said, every plan looks like a disaster in the middle. And you may definitely feel like you’re in one when you start your return.

Keep an open mind and trust the process. Things are not always what they seem, and you may need to make some violent sweeping changes to grow as a person.

Manifest Your Desires and Aspirations

Last but definitely not least, you need to know what you want. The first tip works to center you and provide you with a starting point. This last tip reminds you to give yourself direction.

Once you’ve cleared yourself up and have steeled yourself to being a better person, take some time to be sure of what you want. Sure, it’s easy to say you want to “be better” or “live a better life,” but what does that even mean?

Take this time to think about the things you want. Formulate plans to achieve your goals. Manifest your desires in your thoughts and actions.

You can keep yourself on track by doing this sort of reflection every few months or so.

Astrology for the Third Age

Discover more on your Saturn returns in general.


Introduction

As you pass the age of sixty, and even the in the year coming up to your 60th birthday, the planets make a special contact to your birth chart as Saturn once more returns to its natal position.

This is where it was the day you were born and Saturn takes around thirty years to make one full pass through the zodiac.

Your first Saturn return happened at about age twenty-nine to thirty and the second Saturn return occurs at around age fifty-nine to sixty.

Saturn is the timekeeper of the zodiac and brings a time for you to recalibrate back to your core values as shown in your natal chart.

 




 


Acceptance

You can make the most of your second Saturn return by accepting the following:

  • You know who you are
  • You are mature
  • You know what you can and can’t do
  • You know your limitations both physical and mental
  • You consider starting a new business
  • You become the mistress or master of your own life




The Astrology of your Saturn Return

Your Saturn returns can happen in one of two ways. It all depends on the movement of Saturn at the time of your return. This movement is determined by the angular relationship Saturn has with the Sun in the transit chart.

If the Sun is square or sextile Saturn it will not be the Saturn retrograde that happens once a year.

Your Saturn return could be short as a one hit transit or prolonged if there is a three contact transit.

 

One Contact Return

In a one conjunction Saturn return the influence will be in orb for ten days beforehand and ten days afterwards the exact date.

If it is one single Saturn return you will immediately recalibrate back to all your natal aspects to Saturn.

Three Contact Return

If you are fortunate to receive a three contact Saturn return the transit can be for as long as three months as you experience an extended Saturn return that is more powerful and life changing.

There will be a first direct hit, then a second retrograde contact and finally the third contact.

  • The initial contact will set the stage for all this Saturn return favours.
  • The second contact makes you revise any plans or opinions about your life.
  • The third and final contact brings closure to the things initially opened at the first contact of the return.

Natal Saturn Direct

If your natal Saturn is direct and you get one transit it will be a relatively painless return. A Saturn return like this is short and sweet.

If your natal Saturn is direct and you get a three pass Saturn return it will draw out. The natal issues relating to Saturn and it’s complex in your chart as shown by the sign, house and aspects that you natal Saturn has.

Each contact will be reinforced in a prolonged Saturn return and you will have more time to assess and process the changes taking place in your life.

Natal Saturn Retrograde

If your natal Saturn is retrograde and you receive one direct contact from Saturn it will be refreshing and the positive side of Saturn will be available to you.

If your natal Saturn is retrograde and you receive a three hit Saturn return it will seem more familiar. The hesitation that comes from the Saturn retrograde will be reinforced through the aspects that you already have in your natal chart.

When to Expect Your Second Saturn Return

Your second Saturn return happens when Saturn does a full second cycle and returns to the sign it was in when you were born.

If your natal Saturn is in Aquarius your Saturn return will happen from March 2020 to March 2023.

If your natal Saturn is in Pisces you will get a Saturn return somewhere between 2023 and May 2025.

The Third Age

Your second Saturn return is like a passage of life. Everyone’s life is different and if you were married or not or have kids or grandchildren the situation will differ from person to person.

But there are main themes for the third age of Saturn.

Now you are free to do more. The constraints and demands of reproduction have passed as most women are now through their menopause and cannot have children. They may be called crones or elders.

The grown up kids may have moved out, gone to college or got married.

Your parents may have gone. Even your husband or wife may have shuffled off.

This time is for you to master yourself and to draw the line about people or things that demand too much from you.

You may downsize your home and find a smaller place and change things.

You are not responsible for so many things and now you can concentrate on yourself.

Now your duty is to yourself. You can approach life with renewed energy and accomplish things you have only dreamed of before.

Now you can:

  • Be free from responsibilities of a family or a husband.
  • Know that retirement is a dirty word
  • Travel
  • Make new friends
  • Get more education
  • Explore your creativity
  • Be a mentor for others
  • Have a simpler life
  • Get a smart phone
  • Eat nourishing and quality food
  • Exercise as you see fit
  • Volunteer your time
  • Upgrade your wardrobe and style
  • Get new hair and makeup
  • Love your grandchildren

Each second Saturn return will be different for everyone but the core meaning will remain.

If you plan carefully you will have a new lease on life and can do what you have always wanted to do on your own terms.
