Saturn Return

The Saturn Return

The Saturn Return is an astrological phenomenon that occurs in a person’s life starting at about 27 years old to the age of 30. In our culture we consider the transition into adulthood to occur at the age of 18 or 21, but the first Saturn Return (at 27-30) is often referred to by astrologers as the true coming of age or initiation into adulthood. It typically takes place between 28 and 30 years old and occurs approximately every 30 years. So what exactly is the “Saturn Return”? It is the time that the planet Saturn has circled your chart and returns to the place where it was at the time of your birth. This marks one of the most important times of your life, a time of endings and beginnings, a time to discover your authentic self and correct your course in life if it seems you’re heading in the wrong direction.
