Your Return is when the cosmos align and the planet Saturn comes back to meet your own natal Saturn. It takes close to 29.5 years for Saturn, a slow-moving planet, to return to where it was when you were firstborn. You might start to feel this feeling when you are in your late twenties. It can continue into your early thirties. There is a second Saturn return when you are 57 – 60 years old, and a third about thirty years after that as well. What is it calling for is for you to grow up and choose your life path? If you have spent time focusing on your youth and thinking it will never end, there has now come a time for it to become reality.
