I would like to write today about a topic that I have fallen in love with some years ago. I started reading and learning about Saturn, his transit, how it affects us, why and how I can turn this strong energy to suit me.
This is the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter. Named after the Roman god Saturn, its astronomical symbol (♄) represents the god’s sickle. Saturn has been always associated with the Law and is considered the Father of the zodiac. Saturn brings isolation, sadness, skepticism and stalling. Saturn’s color is black. Saturn is considered cold (slow) and dry (separate). What I love about Saturn is that he puts us to hard work. Saturn is leading some kind of insight revolution when it comes to the way we look at work. Saturn does not make things simple. He makes them harder and harder. Used appropriately, Saturn represents the energies of wisdom, patience, maturity, responsibility. He will test our limits and the way we see our limits. We all have to take better care of ourselves when it comes to Saturn. It is masculine energy and rules both Capricorn and Aquarius, and the Tenth and Eleventh Houses. As you know, I am a proud Aquarius and it is part of Saturn being one of my favorite planets.
It takes Saturn 28-30 years to complete and it is said that we have had a complete cycle of learning. Astrological speaking, it is considered that you are finally mature when Saturn Returns. That is why we are supposed to be at our best when Saturn returns. The Saturn return begins when Saturn moves back into the same sign that it was in when you were born, and it ends when Saturn leaves that sign. It’s very important to find out where was Saturn at the moment of our birth. A simple birth chart calculator will tell you that. See http://www.astro.com/ if you like to find out.
We all have our Saturn returns sometime around the ages of 27-30, it is the unique position that Saturn holds in our birth charts. Saturn return, is a turning point, a transition point in life. Some people make the biggest changes in their lives: important career shifts, starting a new business, start writing that very important book, script, get married for those who thought that was never possible.
