Saturn's Return


[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

hello out there.

i've just joined the community; i'm currently experiencing my first return of saturn in this lifetime. i mean, the return is exact, like, today. my natal saturn is 22 degrees leo (9th house), 56 minutes, and today saturn is 22 deg 44 mins. i've been feeling the effects of this impending return for some time, particularly in the last 6 months. i feel old, grown up, responsible, reasonable, wiser, and dependable -- in short, all the things that i would have considered 'boring' not too long ago. and so many people, good friends and mere acquaintances alike have remarked on the maturity of which i now seem now capable.

so i write to ask if anyone out there has any return stories they'd like to share, or if anyone has any advice on what to expect once transiting saturn passes the return point, but remains conjunct the natal saturn.

My exact SR starts right after yours (23 Leo). Yes, I made the icon for the occasion.

I've had a dying parent to deal with for the last 9 years, and everything is pretty much "on hold" until he finally dies. So that's what my SR is probably going to be about.

i love the icon! i saw your post in the 'astrology' community earlier, and it cracked me up. like peter pan's "i won't grow up" [which seems these days (in my sillier moments) to be my theme song.], but totally sardonic.

i'm sorry to hear about your parent, that sounds truly anguishing, both for you and for him, and for the others around you. i found tho, that this return thing, it's not just about one major event, it becomes present in/relevant to everything. your return will be exact in a day or so; mine is exactly exact (to the degree and minute) today.... good luck to you. :)

Oh, I relate to "I won't grow up." Why would you want to grow up? It seems like all the adults are MISERABLE to me. I'm all for the Red Dwarf "all the universes are supposed to run backwards and ours is a cockup because it doesn't" theory.

I was really figuring that my dad was going to die during my first exact return, especially since his birthday falls during that time (Nov. 1, last day of the first exact return for me), you hear that people often die around their birthdays, and the doctor told me that no patient of his has lasted past 16 months on a ventilator, and that time is just about up. But at the moment, Dad is doing "just fine" (well, as fine as you get when you're a vegetable in a bed), and I guess he's going to be "A MIRACLE!!!!111!!!!" and survive longer. Great, THAT's the miracle we get?

Honestly, this has gone on for nine years. I'm way past ready to let him go and stop the suffering. I feel like I can't move on in life at all until he dies. Everything has had to go on hold until that moment. So my SR's going to be a real lulu at some point, I guess. Whenever the anvil finally drops.
