The Transit Lounge: Saturn Return

Thoth Deck High Priestess Art Deco Tarot Art

The Priestess is a symbol of initiation into mysteries, the gaining of wisdom and the maturity to let in her ancient wisdom.

So ideally we get three Saturn Returns in this life/this earth or like, the world’s officially longest-lived woman – a Piscean – four; Jeanne Calment loved chocolate, olive oil & cigarettes + took up fencing at age 95 & recorded a c.d. named Time’s Mistress. Saturn-Saturn-Saturn & Saturn again, her 4th Saturn Return at age 119 maybe felt a bit Grim Reapery.

But how COOL. Note also that invigorating Uranus Return at age 84.  But Saturn Return – along with Mercury Retrograde – is probably THE best known of astro-passages to the non-cosmic public. AND it’s incredible how the first Saturn Return – in particular – resonates with peeps. It is such a significant transit. I personally love and prefer anything Uranian – even Pluto/Neptunian, within reason – to a Saturn Transit but there is NO denying that they get results; measurable in the real world.

Saturn Return – the first one – is simply when Saturn gets to the same place that it was when you were born. It happens for the first time at about the age of 28/29 for everyone. As in Saturn takes that long to go around the Zodiac cycle. Obviously it is always somewhere doing something in the meantime (hence my Can-We-Take-Saturn-Out? initiative to Obama) but Saturn Return is the big one. You can possibly get by ignoring Saturn shit until the Saturn Return – you really can. But Saturn Return separates girls from women, boys from men & non-contenders from contenders.

Depending upon your belief system, it’s mega-karmic and fateful, the ultimate therapeutic style transit and/or simple maturing. That is, you look around and realise that you are no longer automatically one of the youngest people in any group and that the simple process of time exerts some variety of wear, tear and expectations. A lot of how it manifests depends upon where/how Saturn functions in your chart but it seems to always have the theme of GROW UP & get real.It naturally coincides with the time in life when one thinks re children (yes/no) & significant relationship (yes/no) but also it is a hell of a lot about the pressure to be seen to succeed and fit in with whatever status quo one finds oneself in.

My older friends tell me that the 2nd one (late 50s) is very much about health/mortality and deciding to  be your true self…or NOT. And that the non-individuated peeps pop off the perch way faster than the others.

The first one is notorious for looking around at one’s peers/their achievements and comparing them, also to looking at your parents/their peers and what they had achieved at the same age. I have an officially wealthy uncle and Saturn Return stunned me by making me realise that a person i’d always though of as immeasurably ancient had in fact done most of it by the age i was then. It’s a time when age/status quo/time and associated shit flood in – ready or not.

Ancient astrologers called Saturn the ‘ring pass not’ – actually Saturn gets called a whole lot of names, the crux which would seem to be  this: get a grip on Saturnine reality: death/taxes/that you can’t drink ten litres of wine a night sans consequence post a certain age etc, that not everyone gets to be an astronaut/supermodel and that your chosen career may require about a zillion times more crap/slog than you feel appropriate or may not even be your chosen career/parental shite & maybe a good, solid heart-breaking, health or being ripped off scenario.Your parents aren’t what you thought they were. Or maybe you suddenly get real re an actual abuse scenario. Or something happens that is absolutely unavoidable, that you cannot ignore that forces you to grow up.

That’s Saturn Return. Please – share here – if you are old enough. If not – don’t freak. But learn. Seriously, because Saturn IS serious – WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR SATURN RETURN THAT YOU DID NOT KNOW BEFOREHAND?

AND THIS IS SO SATURNINE – THAT YOU COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN BEFOREHAND. SATURN RULES THE WISDOM/INFO THAT COMES WITH TIME. NOT THE URANIAN FLASHES NOR EVEN NEPTUNIAN DREAMING NOR HARD-WON PLUTONIC SEX/DEATH KINDA INSIGHTS…JUST WORLDLY IT-TAKES-TIME-TO-FIGURE-ALL-THIS-OUT-WISDOM-OF-THE-AGES…

i could actually crap on re Saturn for ages – is surprising me but i realise it’s because Saturn IS easy to define. And in a similar way, if you are dealing with a difficult Saturn transit; face it and break it down. DO the details. Have a plan. In fact, where ever Saturn is in your chart RIGHT now – have an insanely anal plan and take it real seriously. You will be amazed at how a lot of the dread just dissipates once you do the WORK Saturn requires.

The Hermit

The Hermit signifies the need we sometimes have to follow our own path, with only our own inner light to guide us. Both the Priestess and the Hermit are strong archetypes/angels to draw upon in times such as Saturn Return!

I´m about to experience my first saturn return. I guess I have and idea of the themes that will show up. And of course, a lot more that I could not know right now. Fortunately, I always loved the archetype of the Hermit (Sometimes I feel I resemble a bit of it) I see him as the Wise One. I´m in love with wisdom, it´s deep as Pluto, liberating as Uranus and you can merge like with Neptune. What else to say? My Saturn (17º Libra) is exactly conjunct my IC, square the nodes, in a looose conjunction with Pluto,… Read more »

I am just coming out of mine and man, do I feel free. Or rather I didn’t realize how weighted down I felt until I got through it. I had a child already (at 27), and was already married (wedding during my husband’s saturn return). But for me, the return was about house and career. Neither of us had owned a home (he was 34) and were so resistant to it. I actually was really not wanting to do it and almost felt like my husband forced me. It was a good longterm financial decision and I am ok with… Read more »

Im almost 31 and I believe Im pretty seeing the other side of my Saturn Return. It came on around the time I turned 28 and was pretty desperate as to what I ought to be doing with my life (marriage & babies vs career & travel) Once I could see thru the panic of getting Older it made me realise that time really is of the essence and that how I spend it (as opposed to killing it) is important.

HH, sorry I think he is more a more serious/harsh god than that. BUT if you are an ethical, hardworking person, he will reward you; astoundingly. But, any flaw will have to be rehearsed again and again to his favour (flaw = laziness, dishonesty, rest-on thy- laurels, easy-come-by-it etc). At 31, you maybe haven’t grasped Saturn yet, but you will, and I agree, not all bad, I sometimes welcome Saturn.

I have him sitting within a degree of my pisces asc in the first house = harsh childhood, “not there” parents, only physically, grow up too quickly etc. At Sat return I had completed first degree after leaving school early as a rebel at 15 (which is just after the first Saturn squ??) – thought I knew everything then (ha!) – wanted to continue with post-grad but scorp hb convinced me to work so we could buy house, get ahead etc and I could go back later.

Sweetpea, That is really interesting since I often think of myself as a lone wolf and very independent – my Aries moon could play a role here – but I feel a strong need to look after myself especially financially, and the Saturn Return has been difficult because I had/am having difficulty, due to various reasons, supporting myself and have to rely on others and it drives me crazy! But yes, I don’t need groups of people, I prefer quality (according to me) company or my own. Also about the seeking completion thingy, a psychic (who I respected) once said… Read more »

Hi Lark, I’ve found the Hermit energy to be valuable at times and something I’m confortable with as have Saturn in 7th also sq. Sun and Mercury. My greatest lessons/growth have come through relationships. I think it was Kim Falconer who said that Saturn in the 7th is a “lone wolf” position in many regards (self reliant, etc). Also, that the individual is seeking completion within self (inner marriage as opposed to merely symbolic, outer one) and so will do this through relationships and also without one. It’s a challenging road and indeed sounds like you’re getting a handle on… Read more »

With a Cap ascendant i’m well acquainted with Saturnian energy but I had a wonderful Saturn Return – i bought my first apartment, had a job that i loved and couldn’t believe i was getting paid for it. I figured it was Saturn’s reward for having such a tough upbringing. Between then and now i’ve had a few really horrible soul-destroying, Saturn transits where i’ve worked my arse off – 6 years at one company. It felt like punishment at the time but in hindsight i can see the experience i gained and the contacts i made have enabled me… Read more »

I dealt with post natal depression in my Saturn return. I’d floundered for 5 years trying to cope ineffectually/ignore/drink my way through it. FINALLY like you said Mystic, I had to break it down and deal with it. It involved dealing with my own childhood trauma’s as well – naturally. It was a heavy yet liberating time when I finally waded through the quagmire.

My Saturn return coincided with getting married (at 28) and having a wonderful entree into domestic bliss – never thought I would ever find someone as lovely as my boy. It was great to feel like I had joined the ‘real’ world and would not wind up, in Bridget Jones parlance, alone and half-eaten by an alsatian. Then there was the negative – by 29 I was working in a great job, doing quite well, when along came an evil Scorp to rain on my parade. She and I instantly clashed and then she rallied around all the others in… Read more »

Actually, now that I think about it, Saturn was the first in a long line of lesson style transits that taught me how to stay in the moment. With Saturn staying in the moment meant focusing on what had to be done right now, and doing it well … rather than always wanting to be someplace else and having one’s head off with the pixies.

I had four years of Saturn transits. First the Saturn return at around the age of 29 which lasted I think just over two years and then Saturn went into Cancer for two years. So it was mega crunch time. I had to grow up. Big time. Paid bills and long standing debts, lived by myself completely self supporting for the first time ever, stayed in one job for nearly two years for the first time ever. It was horrible and I hated it.

Mystic, I love your take on the Hermit. I often think of him as a bit of a passive old bloke – sitting around ruminating about life in his little cave, but the idea of him actively venturing out to confront thorny issues with only your own little light – it makes him almost like The Fool, except he’s got a mission and he’s armed with the courage of his convictions (And as an Aqua with about a bajillion planets in Virgo, that image is*so* satisfying!

I am so LOVING YOU and your scorpio ways from afar ST – nice he’s a wood rooster – I am a wood monkey we share the same numerology too – i always wonder if the peeps you love and revere are really just reflections of yourself you are admiring? Their expression of an aspect of yourself. They are obviously better at expressing it but do it in a way that is pleasing to your eyes / ears / soul ?

my saturn return tips:
1. WEAR SUNSCREEN and LOOK AFTER YOUR SKIN
because whatever you do as a youth will show as you go past 30. If you care.

2. At least one area of work, personal relationship, money or family will sh*it itself so whichever one you KNOW is wavering will probably be the one to crack or morph.

The encounter exposed all my prior doormat tendencies, and the fallout from going head to head with him damaged my career for the next seven years (come to think of it TA). The upside was that it made me more ruthlessly practical, and helped me stand up to ye olde bullies of yore, who now grovel in my wake.

I moved from the country to the big smoke, leaving behind large but not smothering, family and support network. Mostly for career (natal Saturn is conjunct MC) but also, I think, knowing there was more out there. I had periods were I felt completely alone (well I was physically) but came through the other side realising that I could stand on my own two feet, emotionally and financially. Maybe because I’m a fairly Saturnian being, grounding my Gemini rising and moon, I found it one of the biggest growth phases in my life to date and overwhelmingly positive.

Decided to get married at my Saturn Return. Was floundering financially until then and the marriage gave freedom from my crazy family, stability, a house (I’m a Cap w/ Saturn in the 4th. One of my greatest fears is being homeless), and cred in my community. Also got my first “real” (read: non-artistic) job. Boy did I pick the wrong mountain. Now, with divorce nearly done and Saturn readying to upper square my Sun (Fall 2010) I’m in a driven state to redeem those choices made back then. Taurean friend is helping me plot the redemption. Real numbers, concrete plans… Read more »

Well…. I am turning 29 in a week or so and still seem to be in the throws of Saturn returning… or maybe its just beginning.
My next door neighbour does stencil artwork and about a year ago a stencil appeared outside my front gate saying ‘Fck off Saturn, Fck off’.
… I am not so sure how I feel about it being out there really.
Its not Saturns fault….

Good luck my friend. I’m 29 in two or so. Mine is in the twelve house so all about neuroses, dreams, secret worry, past life crap etc right? Certainly seems that way. Letting go. Letting go. Letting go. Though might make a badge like your neighbours sign. Whether or not its Saturns fault it might make me feel better.

U could stencil a welcome mat with the symbol of saturn on it and put it in front of your door to bring venusian balance to the hood.

Strangely, I cannot remember anything of significance during that time for me and even had a reading just around then or after? During which the astrologer talked about it a lot and still I did not see it.
I did, however, experience all that crap when Saturn spent a hell of a long time in my relationship sector starting in my 30th year and definitely saw and felt it’s impact on me big time. Sucked booty but I love myself a thousand times more now.

Ha. Perfect timing Mystic. I am going through mine right now. Like literally RIGHT NOW. Having weekly sessions with psychologist (who is wonderfully also great astrologist) to sort through all the crap of last 28 years and move along. Interestingly got the Hermit in my tarot reading this morning. Have also started significant skin care regime (realise not going to have great skin at Mum’s age if don’t actually look after it now) and appear to be morphing from tomboy to an actual (gasp) girl. If any of you have tips and pointers for surviving this I’d appreciate immensely. Seems… Read more »
