Saturn's Return


hello, i'm a recent member. i did a big search for astrology-related communities and stumbled upon this one. it's good to know there are a couple of saturn-related communities, as i have a strong (and challenging) saturn in my chart.

i've been going through my saturn return, and i have a few questions:

--when is it over?!

i'm about to enter my 31st birthday in january. i think the energies of it have been calming down, but it did wreak all kinds of havoc--needed havoc--hard, emotional change and decisions in lots of places. i have my natal saturn in cancer, conjunct a cancer moon, in the 2nd house. oh, and saturn's natally retrograded.

i'm an astrology novice, so if this questions sounds ridiculous, i'm sorry:

but what's the difference between transiting saturn (going through your houses at a pace of what? 2-3 years?) and when it returns? and how can you be having your saturn return and have it transiting a different house then where it was when you were born? i've read that saturn has just left my sixth house of work and is headed into my 7th house of relationships. but how can it have been doing its return thing, which natally happened in my 2nd house, if it's been hovering around my 6th house the last couple of years (during the peak of my return)?

any thoughts on saturn conjunct cancer? also with both making a square with pluto in the fifth?

thanks in advance for any illumination.

Dear laughing woman,
difference between saturn return and saturn transtion:

the chart has 12 houses and if you compute it with the transition of saturn in each house with the average of 2 and 1/2 years, the transiting planet saturn returns to its original place (where the saturn was) after 28 - 29 years.

so saturn returns means the transiting saturn return back to its original place, while transit of saturn in each house is 2 and '1/2 years
