Saturn Returns with Caggie
If you’re one to bookmark your horoscope and put Mercury retrogrades in the diary, chances are you’re already au fait with Saturn Return. Often referred to as a rite of passage, this astrological event happens around the date of your 30th birthday.
On the Saturn Returns podcast, Caggie and her guests explore the challenges and opportunities that come with change and our individual quest for authenticity. This podcast aims to bring calm and clarity during times of transition – underpinned by the astrological transit known as your Saturn Return. You are not alone.
Approaching your 30th birthday can be a time of change in many areas of your life – from love to careers and friendships – but astrologers believe the stars could also play a role. “It all comes down to Saturn Return,” explains Caggie Dunlop, host of astrological podcast, Saturn Returns With Caggie. “It takes Saturn 29.5 years to complete one full orbit around the Sun and to ‘return’ to the position in the sky where it was at the time of your birth. For around three years, Saturn orbits through the same zodiac sign it was in when you were born, where astrologers believe it puts you through a series of tests to prepare you for adulthood.”
“Saturnian events are notoriously guillotine-like,” says Caggie. “Think a sudden shift in career or friendship circles that change dramatically and suddenly. Changes can also be linked to your career – this could be a sudden career change or a desire to pursue something you previously never had the guts to do. Emancipation from parents is also a big theme as we craft a new identity based on autonomy and becoming our own authority.” Caggie also explains that Saturn is a karmic planet, meaning you may start to see the ramifications of past actions. “Its message is you reap what you sow. If you are someone who is very disciplined, your Saturn Return could be a period of time when you are rewarded richly for this, such as a promotion.”
