Saturn and Our Experience of Self in the World

For those interested in Astrology, Saturn has a strong influence on our experience of self in the world.

We are offered a karmic reckoning every 29.5 years, the time it takes for Saturn to return to the same place as at our birth. The age of 59 is therefore another ‘Saturn-return’. A simple Google search describes the host of effects it can have.

“Saturn has been known as the Great Malefic, whose transits are met with dread. But Saturn is simply the instigator of change, all meant to lead you toward healing and a real foundation of self. If you’re in your Saturn return, and finding it hard to cope, get used to letting go of what’s not working. When you hold on to things that Saturn is trying to break up, that’s when the suffering is compounded.”
