The planet Saturn takes around 28 years to make a complete turn around the Sun and also pass through the energy of the 12 signs of the zodiac. In a way, it is feared by some people and is reputed to be a planet that brings difficulties and obstacles when it comes back to the point on the birth chart where it was at the time of its birth - it is the so-called “Saturn return.”
The truth is that no planet is bad or good by nature; they represent energies. And what can happen is that the energies that Saturn brings may or may not be in line with your current energy. Regent of the sign of Capricorn, Saturn represents disciplinary energy, of responsibility and maturity. Thus, when he returns for the first time to the person’s life, at around 28 years of age, it indicates the moment to take on the responsibilities of adult life once and for all. Therefore, if the person is not balanced with energies for this purpose, he can feel the imbalance in his life - and Saturn will arrive to put the order in everything.
This first sensation of Saturn’s arrival is felt between 28 and 30 years of age. On the other hand, his second passage takes place between the ages of 58 and 60 and brings a moment of reflection on the responsibilities that the person has assumed throughout his life and whether it is time to change them or not. Finally, Saturn’s third return may take place after the age of 86, indicating a moment of wisdom for those who have gone through the experience of a lifetime.
