The return: moments of change in your life
There are times when we experience astrological influences that encourages us to rethink our lives. As a result of this process, we often make quite remarkable changes in our lives. These astrological influencers are known as “returns”.
A return signifies the moment a planet travels through the zodiac and “returns” to the exact same sign and degree it was the day a person was born. Returns represent a new cycle in someone’s life. They are periods of reassessment which tend to lead to change and are common to all of us. They also represent opportunities for personal growth and change. For every return, you essentially receive a new birth chart that gives you a forecast of what’s to come over the next cycle. Symbolically this means that the planet is beginning a new cycle in a person’s life. The most important returns are those of the outer planets Saturn and Uranus:
- The first Saturn Return, when we are 29 plus.
- The Uranus Half-return, when we are 40 plus.
- The second Saturn Return, when we approach 60.;
If we live long enough, we can also experience:
- The full Uranus return, when we are about 84.
- A third Saturn Return, when we approach 90.
