The Cornerstones of Life
Saturn is often called the karmic planet, the taskmaster and the cosmic corrector. When Saturn travels through the houses of the zodiac in our charts, it touches on specific areas of our lives. It puts us through trials and tests our resilience. Saturn is a symbol of life’s lesson, making sure we stay on track and giving us a chance to get things right in our lives.
What is a Saturn Return?
A Saturn Return marks major cornerstones in our lives. As it makes its way around the zodiac, it takes approximately 29 ½ years to reach the sign it occupied on the day we were born, and when it reaches that sign, you have come into the age of your cosmic Saturn Return. It is a time when you start to review where your life is going, when you start to question things that you’ve come to rely on as truth in your life and to see if the same rules still apply.

The First Saturn Return: Time to Get Real
Our first Saturn Return happens in our very late 20s to early 30s. At this age, we start to think about the progress we’ve made up until this time. We start to realize that we are not immortal as we may have thought when we were younger. And as our lives come into this age and we start wanting different things, we know that we are responsible for making those changes come about. What have we learned and experienced up until now? What part of that past do we carry into our future and what parts no longer serve us? As adults now, it’s time to make changes that bring purpose and meaning into our lives. It can be a time of great angst and great growth. Are you experiencing your first Saturn Return? Get some astrological help with Psychic Shauna ext. 9010.
Our Second Saturn Return: More Time for Ourselves
Our second Saturn Return happens around the time when we turn 60. This is not always as traumatic as the first Saturn return; it is more like a mile marker. We start to work less and spend more time doing the things that please us and spending more time with the people who mean most to us. It is a time when most people take life a little slower and breathe easier because we have more time to do what we like as opposed to what is expected of us by others.
Our Third Saturn Return: Reflection
If we are fortunate enough to live into our late 80s/early 90s, and more of us are every day, we will most likely spend this time sitting back more, having more time than ever to review our lives and marvel at all the changes we have lived through. We have a philosophical history lesson at our disposal. Our legacy is evident in the families we have raised, the work we have done and the current state of our health and well-being—hoping we have left an imprint on the world that has meaning to us and others.
When Saturn returns to our lives, it often creates an opportunity to reevaluate where we are in life and the progress we’ve made. That’s where karma comes into play and why it’s considered the karmic planet. It’s the perfect time to make changes and adjust where we’re going in life and who we are. Take heed of life’s lessons and readjust if you need to.
