Here’s the skinny: There will be certain times within the 3 years of your Saturn return where it’s more intense. Since Saturn is the Realist, concrete events will occur during these times. Then the demand of Saturn will weaken and, hopefully, you will review what you’ve achieved. The specific dates of the most potent hits are determined by either a visit to your astrologer or a look at the astrologer’s bible, which is called an emphemeris.
When I was a novice astrologer, I made the mistake of telling a woman that she was in the “shortest Saturn return I’d ever seen in my life.” I had only taken into account those times when Saturn was bearing down and insisting that she do what was necessary to cross into adulthood. Needless to say, she never returned–and I learned the true nature of the Saturn return.
I am on the brink of beginning my own Saturn return, but the second one this time. The second Saturn return will be the subject of the next blog entry.
If you’re currently in your Saturn return–and Saturn is in Virgo, by the way–what have you experienced? If it’s looming on the horizon on October 31, 2009, what are your questions?
