The Saturn Return is an astrological phenomenon that occurs at the ages of 27-30,
58-60, 86-88, etc., coinciding with the time it takes the planet Saturn to make one
orbit around the sun. It is believed by astrologers that as Saturn "returns"
to the degree occupied at the time of birth—approximately every 29.5 years—
a person crosses over a major threshold
and into the next stage of life. With the first Saturn Return, a person leaves youth behind
and enters adulthood. With the
second Return, maturity. And the third and usually final Return, a person enters wise old age.
The first Saturn Return is famous because it represents the first test of character
and the structures a person has built his
life upon. According to traditions, should these structures be unsound, or if a person is
living out of touch with his true values,
the Saturn Return will be a time of upheaval and limitations as Saturn forces him to jettison
old concepts and worn out
patterns of living. It is not uncommon for relationships and jobs to end during this time
of life restructuring and reevaluation.
