Many Baby Boomers are approaching their second Saturn Return. Some have approached me with concern and dread of “life going to fall apart, unexpected changes, health problems” and so on. My purpose here is to unlock the mystery.
Saturn needs 27 – 29 years to travel around the sun. Ergo, when we are around the age of 28 it returns to the exact point where it was when we were born.
At this age we commonly know which profession we’d like to be in, where we’d like to live and with whom. So we start to build a career, a family a house and more. This is Saturn at work.
Which Qualities does Saturn represent?
Saturn’s essential qualities determine our ability to:
- concentrate on details
- be patient
- think long term
- delay immediate gratification
- be frugal
- be aware of implications for the future
- understand the importance of security
- to put emotions aside and focus on the task at hand
- track a plan
- understand complex systems
- have clarity
- to be decisive
- to stand in our authority
- to commit
- to be loyal
- to stay on point with the facts
- to understand the effects of honesty
- demand respect
- be practical
- be capable
- create routines
Saturn is the provider, the father figure, our back’s spine. It demands strength and clarity. And yes, while it doesn’t represent the part in us that is outgoing, seeking fun, abundant and all the other wonderful aspects of life. It is the counter balance without which we wouldn’t be able to study, graduate, work hard or build a future.
So how does the Second Saturn Return influence us?
As I mentioned above, during the second Saturn cycle, between 57 and 59 years of age, we build a life, a structure around us. All this is based on decisions we made in our late 20ies.
During the second Saturn, we re-assess what we have created for ourselves. Often our children are grown, we are at the peak of our career, and we start noticing that our needs have changed.
So we look at our home, our partnerships, our friends, our spiritual interests, our health — everything that is valuable to us. Plus, we now know ourselves better.
And often that means we will have to let go of places, people, and habits in order to move into the next phase of our lives. This way we are able to build a new foundation for the next Saturn cycle.
How does it affect our feelings?
We instinctively know when changes are coming because they make us feel insecure or anxious. But, understand that when we are able to walk towards these changes and actively participate in re-evaluating our lives, the second Saturn Return will go smoothly. However, if we run away from these changes or fight against them, it becomes a struggle. Now is the time to let go of what is in the way in order for us to move on.
If you are approaching your second Saturn Return, it is important for you to take the time to reevaluate your life. It will make the transition into the next phase so much easier.
