The Saturn Return, the first of which occurs at approximately 29 years of age, heralds a major transition in an individual’s life. Major decisions are made and the direction of a life starts to take shape as the person realises that consequences of actions are now demanded. What happens if — in this period that Saturn returns to its natal position, bringing with it both responsibility and retribution — an individual becomes a parent? We know the bond between parent and child is strong but how different is it when that child is the parent’s Saturn return, evoking and personifying Saturn in daily life? This lecture will explore this connection and is based on my research of the last 14 years.
