Saturn Return

An astrologer looks at 50

Chiron ReturnArt borrowed from the . It’s good to see Huffington Post carrying some serious astrology articles like this one (not that our friend , HuffPo’s usual astrological source, isn’t serious although he is quite entertaining).

Astrologer Virginia Bell has a on the Chiron Return as the turning point at age 50 (technically the Chiron Return occurs at age 51, but let’s not quibble).  I particularly love this paragraph:

At our Chiron Return we have the power to change our story and it is not unusual for our life to take off in a new direction. The period leading up to the Chiron Return, in our late forties, is significant as ideas, plans, and projects are seeded at this time. Located between the orbit of Saturn and Uranus, Chiron is frequently described as a bridge. Often a teacher or mentor appears at this time to act as a bridge or catalyst from one life to another.

I wrote about this on my Facebook page – the fact that the role of mentor is an aspect of Chiron that often gets lost when we think of him solely as the Wounded Healer.  I have found that it is not correct that Chiron’s Wound doesn’t heal – as we age, particularly as we age through the Chiron Return, the wounds CAN heal.  As the wounds heal, the energy that they hold are replaced by a wisdom that goes deep into the soul and at that point we may take on the role as teacher or mentor ourselves.

Today is my birthday, and as many of you know I am in the middle of my Saturn Return right now which means that the […]

In the shadow of Saturn

and I met for lunch yesterday and commiserated on our upcoming Saturn Returns – although we are a year about, our Saturns are close to the same degree and we both are in the shadow of the Saturn Return right now.  I hadn’t read her blog from Wednesday where she posted this amazing photo of Saturn from NASA’s :

Saturn’s Shadow (Nasa APOD)

There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about the second Saturn Return.  Someone I know insisted to me the other day that the Saturn Return lasts from age 58 to 62.  Clients will often call me when Saturn enters the sign that their Saturn falls in, thinking that is the time of the Saturn Return.  A few years ago a client became extremely angry with me when I suggested that her second Saturn Return would not have the same horrific impact that the first Saturn Return did.

Because Saturn’s role is to teach us how to be responsible adults, the first Saturn Return can be exceptionally difficult.  Some of us don’t want to be adults yet at that age and we resist the lessons, and have to deal with the resulting consequences. Many of you know that I have come to think of Saturn as a mentor; to me this image is more accurate and less fear-inducing than the “Celestial Taskmaster” that we usually use for Saturn.  The voice of Saturn within us tells us when we really know we could do better; sometimes it comes from outside of us instead.  Under Saturn transits we may experience financial losses or the famous delays and disappointments in putting our dreams in motion.  Saturn requires patience […]

Amy Winehouse, dead at 27

Amy Winehouse dead The number of musicians who have died at age 27 (putting her in the sadly named “27 Club”) has just increased by one.  Amy Winehouse died Saturday July 23 of a drug overdose at her home in London.

I profiled Amy Winehouse back in 2007:

Amy Winehouse is a Virgo (see chart), the sign known for its reticent and modest behavior which just shows how little validity Sun Sign astrology has. There is another brand of Virgo which some call the “Radical Virgo” in which the famous Virgo powers of analysis and perfectionism are combined with other elements in the chart to create a more reactionary personality. Amy’s chart shows six planets in fire signs which keep her locked forever in a battle between the conservative side of her Virgo nature and the urge that the fire element evokes for a freer life.

Her Sun is squared by Neptune, the planet that dissolves the boundaries of ordinary reality. While this combination stimulates tremendous creativity, there can also be difficulty establishing boundaries and confusion over one’s own identity as defined by the Sun. Neptune conjoins her Moon which is another significator for creative brilliance as well as musical ability, but again there is a struggle to keep one’s feet on the ground. This strong Neptunian signature often suggests an individual who is either a saint or a drunk as the desire to transcend reality can go in either direction. …

This conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus is opposed by Chiron, a small planet in the Kuyper belt that signifies the Wounded Healer. When in a difficult aspect to other planets, Chiron indicates a deep psycho-emotional wound that doesn’t heal, but which ultimately serves as the guide to […]

The United States Saturn Return

US Saturn ReturnEvery thirty years, Saturn returns to its place in the birthchart and that is no less true for national charts than it is for the charts of individuals.  The “Saturn Return” is a time that requires the celebration of Saturnian characteristics: solitude, hard work, facing up to the hard cold realities of life.

Saturn in the US chart is at 14 degrees Libra (see this earlier article for more details about the US chart and why I use the Sibley chart with Sagittarius rising), so the Saturn return cycle will begin in late November/December of 2010.  The second phase will occur in March and April 2011, with the conclusion in August.

Saturn falls in the 10th house of the Sibley chart – the house that in a mundane chart represents the government and the standing of the nation in the world.  The standing of the US has already been beaten up over the past few years, first by a transit of Pluto (death and transformation) squaring the Midheaven of the US chart, and then by Saturn transiting that same point.

The last US Saturn Return occurred in 1981-1982.  Ronald Reagan was president, and his hardline posturing (Saturn) in the world (tenth house) created new alliances (Libra) with the new Russian leader Gorbachev.  Although he had signed the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981, reality (Saturn) set in under the US Saturn return in 1982 and he was forced to admit that the nation was in a recession, and that balancing the budget was “not possible.”  As transiting Saturn made an exactly conjunction to the US Saturn, unemployment reached a six-year high and Reagan’s promises of a balanced budget were deemed by his own Budget Director […]

The astrology of Betty White’s amazing career

Betty White has had one of the longest running careers in show business.  Her career began just after her high school graduation, and she had her first radio show before she was 20.  She was the star of the long-running television program The Golden Girls, and was a supporting actor in many television programs and films.

Recently though her career seems to have exploded.  Since 2009 she has appeared in three films, and she recently became the oldest living person to host Saturday Night Live after a Facebook group demanding her appearance exceeded 500,000 members.  She now has her own television program, a calendar, and her own clothing line.

This explosion began in the months leading up to the transition of her progressed Venus (attraction, love, affection) over her Midheaven (career point) in early 2009.  (Data source: .)  Her natal chart shows an interesting combination of a Leo ascendant which craves recognition and authority and also bestows good humor and wit, with a conjunction of the Sun and Venus in achievement-oriented Capricorn.  The Sun/Venus conjunction gives her a tremendously likeable nature, and it is squared by Jupiter which suggests that she can be lucky, but somewhat careless with that luck.  However, the Capricorn influence inspires a strong work ethic and an ability to work hard and focus her energy towards her goals.

The Sun and Venus are both in the sixth house, along with Mercury.  The sixth house represents our work environment and everyday life, but traditionally it also rules “master/servant” relationships and small animals.  Those with Venus in the sixth house have a love of animals that is reflected in Ms. White’s embrace of animal charities.

Little is known about Ms. […]
