Where were­­ you in the Fall of 1982?  What was going on in your personal life?  What was going on in the world?  How old were you? In November of that year Pluto and Saturn made a conjunction at 27 Libra.  Where is 27 Libra in your natal chart?  Is anything in your natal chart at 27 degrees?  Look at the cusps and angles too. This is a good place…

If Saturn were nearer to us than it is it might look like this. Forward progress begins again….most especially after mercury goes direct early September. Happy Birthday Virgo! Om Shanti, Om ps. I don’t remember where I got that photo. I’ll credit you if you let me know who you are.

Most astrologers focus on time.  The questions that begin with ‘when’ are innumerable.  The ability to analyze the present moment, the past and the future using a natal horoscope  reveals larger patterns that would otherwise go unnoticed. In 1986 -ish I attended a weekend workshop in CT taught by Jim Lewis, the pioneer of what is today called Astro*Carto*Graphy. (Where you were born holds equal weight with when you were…

Much has been written about this giant in the sky. He has a heavy reputation and carries the weight of responsibility whereever he goes. Whether you follow the Vedic or the Western system of astrology, Saturn marks time passing. He is both the measuring stick and the obstacle, creating boundaries and limitations everywhere. Perhaps all those rings that surround the planet reminding us that all of us are tied up…

Saturn is at 29 degrees of Virgo in the tropical zodiac.  We’ve discussed endings here and here and here.  Endings, the balsamic phase, the 29th degree, the mutable signs, the 12th house, all have a common intention towards completion.  You have to have an ending if there’s going to be a beginning.  This isn’t high math………….it’s just the way it works.

(I’m using a very wide orb here)….. if so, then Saturn is coming up to conjunct your natal Pluto. Heavy. Dense. Solid, and sometimes Immovable. Patience is key. A good time to establish a yoga practice to re-generate your stress and turn it into skillful action and right thinking. Easily said. Difficult to practice. Find a spiritual  teacher. Commit. Breathe.

Cycles of Becoming, The Planetary Pattern of Growth by Alexander Ruperti is probably one of the best books I’ve ever read on the study of cycles, phases , and patterns. Here’s what he writes for age 56-63. Phase 9.  Possibility of 3rd birth in the Uranian cycle. Demonstration of the capacity to focus the spiritual quality of being inherent at birth, through the personality.  New spiritual activities or, negatively, further…

If you’re coming around to 30, 60 or 90 years of age (rounding off the numbers for simplicity….consult a professional astrologer for your exact dates.) you’re probably approaching The Saturn Return. A return is when a transiting planet arrives at the same place it was in when you were born. Every year around your birthday you have a Solar Return.

Volumes have been written about the Saturn Return and I encourage you to ‘google’ the term and do your own research. I have a list compiled at and as soon as I develop some more technical skills I’ll share it with you. However, be prepared. You may not like what you read. Saturn has a reputation of bringing us face to face with cold, hard reality.

If you move thru this transition time with consciousness there are some very definite rewards to be gained if you are willing to work hard. It is a time for discipline and patience.

The Saturn Return presents us with choice points: critical decisions are considered, and changes can be implemented ……consciously and/or unconsciously.

All that said, the focus of this post is on the ~3 year period of time that precedes the return, beginning somewhere around the ages 27, 57, or 87 approximate.

If you’re coming around to 30, 60 or 90 years of age (rounding the numbers off to prioritize ‘concept’), you’re probably approaching a time period that astrologer’s call the Saturn Return. Volumes have been written about the Saturn Return and I encourage you to Google the term and start reading. However, be prepared. You may not like what you read.

I was cleaning out an old file drawer the other day and came across the award certificates I received during winter/spring 1993.  For, me these pieces of paper symbolize a few of my most heart-felt achievements.  I won three Toastmaster’s Speech Contests in a row, qualifying me to compete in a state event. It was quite an experience and the memory of it continues to provide me with confidence and…
