The Three Major Life Transits: Part 1, Saturn Return


Have you ever heard the term Saturn Return? If so, you probably know that around age 28 to 30, we start to “settle down” and try to create more structure in our work and home life. This is reflected astrologically by Saturn returning to the place it occupied in the sky at the moment of our birth, which takes approximately 29.5 years.


But – did you know there are two other major life transits that have a massive impact on our day-to-day lives? One is the Uranus Opposition, which occurs when Uranus comes to the exact opposite place in the sky to where it was when we were born. This happens between ages 41 - 44.


The third major transit is called Chiron Return, and it is so named because the asteroid Chiron - one of the largest asteroids in our solar system - like Saturn, returns to where it was at the moment of our birth. This happens around age 50 - 53.


Over the course of the next three weeks, we will do a deep dive into these three major transits and how they are likely to affect us.


What is a transit?

Astrologically speaking, when we compare the current position of a given planet to where it was when we were born, we are looking at that planet’s transit. For example, when the Sun moves through a given sign, we can also say it is transiting through that sign. Certain transits are more significant than others, and in the case of Saturn Return and Chiron Return, we are looking a
