Introduction

Saturn’s Promise, Copyright 2006 Stephanie Clement

As they orbit the Sun, the planets reveal the unfolding patterns of our lives. Saturn, with its magnificent rings and multiple moons, acts as a principal timer of events. This interpretation focuses on the structure of your life: from the potential you have at the moment of birth, through the formative years, the productive period, and into your later years, when you become a mentor for the younger generation.

What Saturn Signifies in the Birth Chart

Let’s begin at the beginning. At birth you have unique potential to grow to adulthood, fulfill your talents, achieve emotional security and happiness, and to express yourself as a spiritual being. Sometimes you will work hard and achieve more. Other times you will struggle, only to be frustrated in your desires. Frustrations often teach us greater self discipline … by creating patience, for example. You always have choices along the way.

Saturn’s birth potential encompasses these general considerations:

– physical development and health considerations – mental and emotional development – areas of pessimism or limited enjoyment – consciousness of self – career and enduring legacy – your life path in general, from starting point to life lessons to rewards. – potential for wisdom and maturity

One way to summarize the role of Saturn is to look at your capacity for self-preservation. All of the above-listed traits come into play as you seek to defend yourself against perceived attacks, or to go on the “attack” as an assertive, ambitious individual. You develop skills that aid you in becoming a successful, satisfied person. Success depends both on defensive capacity and assertiveness.

These consideration play out in two ways. First, there is the “normal” path – the typical pattern of development that all people follow. This path is true for everyone. Then there is the unique focus you bring to your own life. This is where you reveal your own power and will. The intersection between the typical and the individual is the subject of this interpretation.

Because Saturn moves relatively slowly through the signs, all the people born within about a 2 to 2 1/2 year period share many qualities. Here are some thoughts about your unique potential, as seen in your birth chart. People in your immediate age group share many of these traits.

Part I – Saturn in Your Birth Chart Saturn in Capricorn:

You are a self-restrained individual.  You have good self-control, and you tend to march to the beat of your own drum. This can lead to a one-sided view of life, with an over-balance in career, for example, to the exclusion of satisfying personal relationships. You can expect steady advancement in life, based on your own efforts.

You can be all work and no play, which is not much fun for the people around you. You need to find recreational activities that focus your drive. You need to discover the joy of life. You may find that as you get older, you relax more. For example, you may have more fun playing with grandchildren than you did with your children.

You have an innate sense of timing. This makes you a natural at games and sports where eye-hand coordination and body-to-tool coordination are important. You also take special care with your equipment. You benefit from applying this care to relationships and other areas of your life.

The placement of Saturn in your birth chart suggests that the knees, adductor muscles and associated connective tissues are potential areas for physical manifestation of the mental, emotional and spiritual experiences of your life. In medical astrology, these parts of the body are reflected in the sign of Capricorn.

The knees and associated muscles allow you to climb upward. They also allow you to bend your knee in humility. Strengthening the knee and inner thigh muscles is essential to both. You will be able to rehabilitate a knee injury, but proper training will help you to avoid many potential injuries. Balance contracting exercises with stretching for the best results.

Saturn in an earth sign:

Although family is very important to you, you have difficulty in dealings with one or more family members. You may feel that you were not nurtured in a way that was meaningful to you, or that your parents did not understand your feelings. This can make you somewhat rigid or inhibited. When you learn to let go of your feelings, either through emotional expression or through meditative practice, you then can replace negative feelings with more constructive self-esteem.

Your approach to life is firmly grounded in the patterns and rules of your family. If these are consistent, then you thrive. It may be difficult to isolate and revise old rules that don’t fit with your sense of yourself, as they are woven into a complex pattern. Hold on to what works, while unraveling and discarding concepts that irritate your sense of what is right for you.

The placement of Saturn in your birth chart suggests that the diaphragm, stomach, sternum and lower ribs are potential areas for physical manifestation of the mental, emotional and spiritual experiences of your life. In medical astrology, these parts of the body are reflected in the sign of Cancer.

Proper diet can resolve many of your upper digestive problems. Exercises to strengthen the back and abdomen are also good. Any injury to the lower rib area needs attention from a doctor or chiropractor, as a misaligned rib can be quite painful. Yoga or other stretching exercises help flexibility and digestion. Breathing exercises strengthen the chest area.

Saturn is 18-19 deg Cardinal:

Areas of the body that deserve careful attention include: Deep brain tissue, head of pancreas, larger tubes in kidneys, ligaments of left knee.

Saturn in 12th house:

Throughout your life, private matters and your relationship to institutions are of major importance.  Yet this is an area where development may be delayed. This means that while you must take responsibility for your private life and for associations with larger institutions, you may not feel you are good at it early in your life.  Quiet time is essential if you are to think deeply about anything. Because you need to understand the purpose behind your actions, you seek seclusion where you can ponder the deeper meaning of your desires or fears.

You are big on safety considerations.  You may have a talent for seeing obstacles and removing hazards from your home or workplace.

Because you are so protective of your ego, you seek to hide any weakness you may have.  The act of hiding can come across as a lack of ambition.  You don’t want to take big risks, and therefore appear lazy or withdrawn.  When you understand the deeper purpose of your own life, you can take the initiative and demonstrate success.

Saturn in hard aspect with Pluto:

You are capable of very hard work.  You may seem harsh to others who do not have the same capacity.  There may be some organic under-development that causes you problems.  You are able to work well with groups, but also thrive on silent activity.

Saturn in hard aspect with Asc.:

Your social inhibitions may be mistaken for shyness by others.  You have bouts of depression and sometimes feel frustrated in your ambitions.  You matured early and may have appeared more competent than you felt.  You prefer to be around older people.

Saturn in soft aspect with Sun:

You have learned to be firm in your decision-making. You like to be in control of your own destiny, and this can lead to a negative attitude when you don’t get your own way. When you work persistently, even if you must do so alone, you reap the benefits eventually.

Saturn Rx in cardinal sign

At birth the infant faces enormous demands. From the first moment, the capacity of the heart and lungs is tested. Breathing and circulation are required for initial survival of the birth event. Very soon the capacity to swallow and digest food is tested. If these challenges are not met within the first week, the infant fails to thrive. Then elimination of toxins becomes an issue. As soon as the infant comes in contact with other people, the immune system is tested. Very shortly reflexes and the development of muscle strength are required. All of these very basic functions fall into three general groups.

With Saturn retrograde at birth you may have faced a delay in development of brain, stomach, or urinary functions. In addition, you may have developed significantly greater strength or coordination on one side of your body. While most developmental delays are overcome, you may be faced with one or the other of these problems throughout your life.

Summary

The above remarks indicate both where you begin in life and where you experience change as you go along. They also represent a fair assessment of your potential. You very likely will relate to some of these ideas at the present time, feel that you have already overcome some of the less constructive traits, and recognize that you can strive to accomplish others.

Life Unfolds

All people begin physical life as helpless infants, and all people eventually leave the physical body. Between these two universally shared events, you experience the richness of what life has to offer, and you have unique experiences, based on your own potential. There are so-called “normal” times for each developmental process to occur. The typical milestone period is seven years, four months, and one week. Some of us are ahead of the curve at each milestone, and some of us fall behind. Astrological timing is based upon the average speed of Saturn’s motion, compared to what actually occurred for you personally.

For each major phase of your life, you will find information about the associated developmental process and its demands. Then you will find information about how you fit into the typical pattern – early or late, and what you can expect because of the timing. Most individuals have a mixture of early, late, or three chances. Thus, you will not have the same experience every time.

Throughout this section of your interpretation, you will find notes about the date (s) when each Milestone occurs. When three dates are grouped closely together, you have the opportunity to understand a milestone through three distinct experiences. If you have three Saturn returns grouped together, you get three very different pictures. The first two dates help you to address challenges and seek opportunities, primarily for the period of time before the third date. Indications at the third date carry forward strongly for the next 28 to 30 years.

Because of the movement of Saturn, you experience similar conditions and feelings every 28 to 30 years. Early in your life, a difference of a few weeks or months can have a big impact on your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual developmental processes. A month seems like an impossibly long time to a six-year-old, while at age sixty a month whizzes by all too quickly. In addition, when you are older, you will have gained experience from the formative years – experience that enables you to manage events and conditions better.

By understanding the interweaving of planetary influences in your own chart, you gain insight into your life. You make peace with yourself concerning certain times of your life, and you arm yourself with helpful information for future life passages.

Part II – Saturn Cycles in Your Life

Growth – Birth to About Age Thirty

During the first 28 to 30 years of life, you have been building the structure of the physical body, expanding your mental capabilities, learning how to manage emotional changes, developing a sense of values and morals, and entering the working world. You have formed lasting relationships and may have given birth to children of your own.

The demands of the first seven years of life are huge. You learned to communicate through language – a tool that allows you to express your needs, learn concepts in an organized way, and engage in deductive reasoning. You learned to operate simple machinery and use a computer. You developed the coordination necessary for using all kinds of tools. By age thirty you are a fully functioning adult human being.

Saturn builds upon the past. This means that even from birth, you were using what has come before to create structures. Thus the first full period indicates how you take in the familial, social, and cultural information surrounding you. You started out wholly dependent on the people and structures around you, and during the first 28 to 30 years of life you learn how to function independently – you develop a personal perspective on family and culture.

Milestone I – A Sense of Self: Around Age 7

The promise of this first milestone is the development of a sense of “self.” Up to this time you are primarily part of a group. You step out of the nuclear family into the immediate neighborhood, meeting other children, relating to caretakers outside the household, and beginning regular schooling. By the time you reach this first milestone, you generally see yourself as separate from your parents and siblings. In fact, at this time you may feel somewhat isolated, while also enjoying the new sense of independence.

A very important transition at this age is the understanding of right and wrong. You come to understand that the rules you have been taught have a systematic structure that can be generalized into a code. You internalize the “feeling” of rightness or wrongness of your actions, and gradually learn to make your own decisions. While a child of two or three looks to an adult authority figure for information about appropriate action, the seven to eight-year-old is learning to look within the self for this information. There is a growing sense of responsibility for your actions, and also a greater feeling of significance as an individual.

Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on April 28, 1968:

Lessons at this time ideally created an environment in which you could act upon your own initiative, even though you were only seven years old. This meant that your parents and teachers ideally provided a safety net of appropriate boundaries, while allowing you as much freedom as possible for self-expression. You may have set goals now that last your entire lifetime.

Do you recall specific events from this time period? Did you feel growing independence and strength? Did you encounter harsh lessons that taught you to be much more cautious in your decisions and actions? Was there a mixture of both? Whatever your experiences at this age, they were carried forward for at least the next 7 to 8 years, and probably up to the present moment.

Milestone II – Crisis of Puberty: Around Age 14 – 15

The teen years are filled with a sense of crisis for most of us. As you enter puberty, you feel like an adult and have adult sexual urges. At the same time you often feel like a child, helpless to manage the emotions that accompany profound physical changes. Your mental framework is changing radically as well. Ideally you move from primarily inductive thinking toward using the deductive style of reasoning. This provides an opportunity to abandon somewhat unpredictable patterns of thinking and take up a precise, definite, secure mental style. You may come to believe that everything is logical and rational.

Yet you have those unpredictable emotional floods that contradict this new style of thinking. Often you wish you could blame someone else for your difficulties. Your parents or immediate caregivers are likely targets for your negative emotions, while you save your more positive feelings for your peers. You need time to adjust to massive physical changes too. Even though this can be a painful time, it is important to hang out here for a while. For example, rushing into marriage, and the associated adult sexual behaviors and other responsibilities, can deprive you of the time you need to fully understand your own internal processes.

Even though you feel grown up and independent part of the time, you still need the support and boundaries provided by parents, teachers, and rules. Saturn reflects the role of discipline in your life. Around age 15, you still need the discipline provided by family and social systems as you gain awareness of your social position, intellect and future possibilities.

Saturn opposition Saturn in cardinal signs on October 6, 1974: Saturn opposition Saturn in cardinal signs on November 26, 1974:
Saturn opposition Saturn in cardinal signs on June 12, 1975:

Where you had previously learned to act on your own initiative and how to set meaningful personal goals, at this milestone you were buffeted by emotions that you previously held under strict control. This rush of emotions had the potential of opening up whole new vistas of awareness – you understood that life was not just about you and your desires, but also about other people. At this time you got to see just how messy feelings could be.

If the adults around you acted responsibly, and if they established boundaries that provided support without total restriction, then you came through this transition with a renewed sense of independence and strength. On the other hand, if the authority figures in your life acted from self-interest, you could have suffered deep emotional wounds as you struggled to maintain your own sense of self.

For most of us there was a mixture of good and bad at this time. We tried things, we made mistakes, we had successes and failures, and we survived. We also internalized reasons for being dependent, co-dependent, or independent. Ideally, we learned that we are interdependent parts of partnerships, social circles, and the larger universe.

Milestone III – Legal Adulthood: Around Age 21 – 22

The third Saturn milestone occurs around age twenty-one to twenty-two. Our society labels us as adults at about this time. Generally this transition is made primarily on the mental level. It is a time when you accept the responsibilities of adulthood – legal to drink, vote and marry. Laws in many states and countries apply this label earlier – at age eighteen, for example. Having the legal responsibility and having the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual understanding of responsibility are two entirely different things. You get to audition for adult status before you have all the mental mechanisms in place to do the complete job.

This transition is often accompanied by the desire to “go it alone.” Students have gone off to college; others have taken jobs and may move away from home. Many have married and begun their own families. You take on the material responsibility for your life, and presumably you are more thoughtful in your decision-making. You feel alone as you transition from a primary role of junior family member to the role of adult independence. Even if you marry and have children, you are still going through the transition and may feel very lonely as you make important decisions. Yet you need to separate your identity from the peer group, just as you separated from the family, in order to become a healthy individual.

Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on November 22, 1981: Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on April 17, 1982:
Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on August 17, 1982:

You found yourself at a dynamic crossroad. You had life direction under control. The environment proved to be more unpredictable than you thought possible. If you experienced success in developing independence, you set the stage for rapid advancement in all areas of your life for the next seven years.

To the extent that you met the challenges, you gained a sense of your own strength. To the extent that the challenges felt like defeats, you developed fears that you carried forward from this time. Even though you were no longer answering directly to your parents, you had internalized a parental voice that informed you about your actions. If events were not been favorable, you may have felt guilty about your role in them.

The Productive Period – About Thirty to About Sixty

During this period, you will work with what you have learned in the first 28 to 30 years. You repeat the same Saturn phases, but this time with the benefit of life experience. You now enter the fully productive period of your life, armed with the constructive and not-so-constructive lessons you have learned.

They say that what goes around, comes around, and this is certainly true of Saturn, both literally and metaphorically. The way you handle your experiences definitely affects how you meet each subsequent challenge. The Saturn Return marks the beginning of the most important period of maturity. This is when your productive powers are at their height – a time when you express yourself in the world and are able to achieve concrete goals and make a lasting impact.

Because Saturn has made a full circuit of your birth chart, all possible structural relationships have been formed. This means that all the pieces are in place, for good or ill. For instance, you have achieved nearly complete physical growth. During the next 28 to 30 years, your physical effort shifts away from growth and toward work and maintenance of health.

You are capable of making big changes, but they are dependent on how you view the decisions you made during the first 30 years of your life. You may become more conservative and serious, or you may undertake significant changes in career, spiritual direction, and family relationships. At this time you tend to think deeply about your life, and the direction you want to take in the future. These decisions are likely to have a lasting impact.

The Saturn Return creates a new pattern in the heavens. Although you will always respond most strongly to your birth chart, the chart for the Saturn Return sets the tone for the next 28 to 30 years of your life. Therefore this report analyses the potential in that chart as if it were a birth chart – for the birth of your productive period.

Milestone IV: The First Saturn Return: Around Age 29 – 30

Because we are talking about the Saturn Return, Saturn is in the same sign as it was in your birth chart. However, you have 28 to 30 years of experience building the structure of your physical body, your mental capacity, your emotional tendencies, and your spiritual understanding. Thus the second Saturn passage will be significantly different from the first.

At this time you may review the past, and get an attitude check-up. How are you doing with your material ambitions? Are you on the career track that is best for you? What kinds of changes may be necessary or appropriate at this time, in order to get you moving or keep you moving in a positive direction?

The time of the Saturn return is good for clearing out the dead wood of a stagnant career, old relationships, and other things that are no longer useful to you. This is also a time of beginning. After any repairs to your life that seem essential, you can take off in a new direction. If you like where you find yourself, you enter into life’s activities with renewed vigor. Finally, you put down deep roots that support you through the next 28 to 30 years successfully.

During this transitional period you learn a lot about yourself, about the people close to you, and about your long-term goals and desires. You test out the methods you have learned in the past and refine them as you go along. You may find (or recall) yourself looking into yourself . What have you personally accomplished? What have you had to endure, through no fault of your own, but because of circumstances? Where are you in terms of goals you may have set for yourself long ago? Are they even important now?

You may never forget the stress you feel (or felt) at this critical transition time. You could experience physical illness, psychological stress, or a spiritual shift of large proportions. The best bet is to take full responsibility for your life, even where circumstances intervene. You are responsible for how you chose to respond to them, after all.

For the foreseeable future, how you respond to life is what matters most of all. You have the opportunity to choose your associates, choose your career, and choose your belief systems. You are challenged to reach your highest potential in all areas of your life. You are, of course, building on everything that happened during the first period, finding remedies for gaps in your education or worldview, and forging ahead. If there are difficulties, you find that you not only have to face them, you have to sort out issues from the past as well.

Your Personal Saturn Return Chart Indicators SATURN RETURN on January 23, 1990:

Saturn in Capricorn:

Career interests remain a strong part of your personality. If, during the first cycle, you have built a structure of self-understanding and organization, you are very likely to continue to add to that side of your personality.

Saturn in Natal 12th House:

You were born with Saturn in the house of secrets, private life, and institutions. You will find that your focus, while continuing to reflect the significance of these factors, now turns to other matters.

Saturn in 4th House of Saturn Return Chart:

In the Return chart Saturn is in the house of family and core beliefs. During the next 28 to 30 years, you find that home and family take on greater importance. In addition you discover that your beliefs are up for re-consideration at this time.

You find that your emotions are generally under control. You are somewhat reserved. You may experience difficulty with certain family members. Perhaps you are ready for greater freedom. If you were able to achieve personal freedom earlier in your life, then freedom may not be a big issue. However, if you feel you were not independent enough, the Saturn return may be a time when you set new goals that include much more independence. This could come as a surprise to your closest family and associates.

Any discontent you feel can be channeled into planning for the future. If you don’t like life as it is, you plan to make changes. Only now you are more cautious than you once were. First you take a serious look at your core beliefs. You will be revising them throughout this 28 year cycle, but now is the time when you begin to analyze them. In the process you may develop some defensive mechanisms to buffer yourself from the world. You feel somewhat deprived, or you are much more aware of situations from the past that caused you to feel this way. If so, you work on improving the situation.

You may analyze your relationships with your parents, and how those relationships have shaped your adult associations. You conclude that you need to take a somewhat different direction from here on out, yet it is not easy to dissociate yourself from what you have experienced. To the extent that relationships involve karmic ties, we have to complete them, not cut them off. If we simply cut them off, we find we get to repeat patterns until we learn to full lesson.

Now is a time when you may learn a great deal about emotional dependence. You learn what feels appropriate for you, and you learn when dependence is taboo. You come to distinguish between the essentials of family and clan connections and the “rules” that clan members have imposed upon you. You may wonder, over the next few years, just why so much attention has to be given to family issues, but you still do it.

Saturn in soft aspect with Pluto in Saturn Return chart:

During this cycle you meet with difficult people and situations. Opportunities arise for you to work with groups of people who set very high goals and push to the limit to achieve them. Some of your successes will seem like magic. Certainly your results reflect wise use of personal skills.

Summary

Compare the above thoughts about Saturn to the information about you at the beginning of this interpretation. There may be certain similarities, and there are probably striking differences. Keep in mind that you don’t stop being the person represented by your birth chart. However, you are now entering an extended period during which you add nuances to your repertoire of behaviors.

Milestone V – Sense of Purpose: Around Age 36 – 37

This developmental transition gives you get a chance to review what you have been doing since your Saturn Return. This life transition parallels the changes at around age seven. The earlier challenge was to develop a sense of self. Now the challenge is to develop a sense of personal purpose. No longer under the thumb of family and society, you face life’s challenges as a true individual.

At this time you begin to sense the empty places in your life. There is a strong tendency to fill them with something – anything. Experience tells you, however, not to fill them with just anything that comes along. There is an intentional quality to your decisions that is thought out more carefully than when you were seven.

Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on June 12, 1997: Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on September 21, 1997:
Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on March 2, 1998:

You are well into the productive cycle, and now is the time to examine your progress to date. What progress have you made toward the goals you set for yourself? You are likely to receive messages, both positive and negative, that indicate whether you have found the deep current in the river of life. Or are you in the eddies and whirlpools, going round and round and making no progress? Hopefully you have avoided the raging rapids that toss you around and leave you feeling completely wrung out.

Milestone VI – Midlife Crisis: Around Age 43 – 44

The often-mentioned, much misunderstood midlife crisis is actually a period of self-evaluation that benefits from objectivity. Now is the time to assess everything that has happened since your Saturn Return at age 28 to30. Because you make this assessment yourself, it must be based upon your own values, and not upon some measuring stick outside yourself.

Saturn opposition Saturn in cardinal signs on July 20, 2004:

As you push your own agenda, you become more and more lonely. You push other people away with your “my way or the highway” attitude. You may also learn to joy of joint ventures and adventures. Cooperative team efforts accomplish more than solo efforts.

At this transition, many people change marriage partners, change careers, and change their attitudes in general. Some of these changes are necessary, if further progress is to occur. Some are the result of immature decisions, growing out of earlier failures to complete developmental lessons. Either way, you will be change forever during this time. Roles that seemed to be permanently defined when you were fifteen, now may dissolve or even reverse themselves. Many people undertake the care of a parent at this stage of life, for example.

At this stage of life, most of us find that we are no longer “young”. Oh, we may continue to fight the weight, the wrinkles, and the aches and pains. Still, objectively speaking, we know we are not the twenty-one-year-olds we once were. A great many of us are at the midpoint of life, as we can expect to live into our 80’s and even 90’s. A good objective look now can set you on a course for the rest of your life that, instead of feeling like a downhill slide, is more like a contented drive – no longer pedal-to-the-metal all the time, but satisfying nonetheless.

Milestone VII – A Time of Change: Around Age 50 – 51 Similar to the crisis at age 21 or 22, once again you are taking a look at your typical behavior, and you may be deciding to make changes. Your attitudes and values may be pushing you to do more. Some people return to school. Others develop a creative talent. Still others find charitable work. If your own children are grown, and have moved away from home, you may have time, money and energy to spend on travel. In addition, you now must begin to treat your own children as adults, which can be a challenge in itself.

You are probably earning the most you ever have. If you are not satisfied with your career, there can be a major job change. This involves certain risks, and you may have to work through emotional issues from the past in order to be able to make the change.

Health issues could call for a change in lifestyle and/or diet.

Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on September 28, 2011:

Your actions appear impulsive. You examine the available choices quickly, yet you see much more than you might have when you were 21 or 22. By this time you have learned that hypersensitive feelings get in the way of work and relationships, yet when you try to inhibit feelings, that doesn’t work either. Diplomatic skills improve, based on a reserved demeanor. In this process you feel somewhat alone, even if you have family and associates around you. You are becoming aware that you provide the meaning in your life. You can no longer depend on children, family, or other people to do this for you.

Becoming a Mentor – About Fifty-Nine Years Old

Some time near the 56th birthday, Saturn again returns to its birth position. This signals the beginning of a third life phase – that of mentor. In traditional societies the role of elder is an honored position. Generally the elders no longer participate in many of society’s activities. They no longer are the hunters, the warriors, or the hard-hitting business people. Instead they take on the roles of historian, teacher, mentor and counselor, and the wisdom that comes with experience is highly valued.

You have just completed about thirty years of creative, productive work, and there is no need to cut yourself off from that at this time. However, you benefit from turning your attention away from new creative projects of your own, and using your energy to help younger people develop their creative potential. You are able to help them because you have been there – you have had revolutionary ideas, you have changed careers, you have lived the life that they are embarking on.

This transition requires that you make some changes in your thinking. There is a second Saturn return chart that provides a major update. It indicates where you have been, and also shines a beacon on the path that remains before you. Because this third period includes old age, the chart for the second Saturn Return provides indications of what your final years will be like in terms of health, social activities, family responsibilities, and all other areas of your later adult years. Just as you have gathered wisdom along the path, as seen by Saturn’s passage through your chart, you now have the capacity to understand issues that have followed you, provide guidance for younger people, and look forward to planting the seeds of your experience for others to nourish themselves.

Inevitably, this is a time of letting go. You are no longer as strong, as energetic, or as interested as you once were. We know that people are often able to maintain robust health well past the age of sixty, so it is not as if you suddenly switch off. You may, however, find yourself making “sensible” decisions, where formerly you could say yes to just about every opportunity, and not worry about rest, diet, and other security needs.

SATURN RETURN on March 7, 2019: SATURN RETURN on June 24, 2019:
SATURN RETURN on December 4, 2019:

Saturn in Capricorn:

As the second full Saturn cycle comes to a close, you seek to consolidate gains in the area of career goals.

Saturn in Natal 12th House:

You were born with Saturn in the house of private matters.

SATURN RETURN on March 7, 2019:

Saturn in 4th House of Saturn Return Chart:

In the second Saturn Return chart, Saturn is in the house of family and core beliefs. These areas of life take on greater significance for you during the mentoring cycle. Because you have come through two full cycles, your level of self-awareness is much higher now, and there is a strong focus on using that awareness as the motivation and guidance system for your mentoring cycle.

Saturn in hard aspect with Pluto in Saturn Return chart:

Your best efforts get the best results in group activities. Yet you do much of your research and work in seclusion. You grow spiritually, developing the traits of an adept or magician. This is a time to set your ego aside and reach out for spiritual support and guidance.

Saturn in soft aspect with Sun in Saturn Return chart:

You find that as you wrap up activities from the previous cycle, new opportunities spring up for your consideration. You benefit from careful assessment of your current position before you jump into something new. You may move from an active, productive role to a managerial, teacher role during this cycle. Planning can make separations smoother.

Saturn in soft aspect with Mars in Saturn Return chart:

You find you have unusual endurance, and you are able to resist illness. You may have periods of weakness, followed by periods of exceptional strength. You may experience the atrophy of physical tissues, yet you are able to manage these physical changes well.

Saturn in soft aspect with Neptune in Saturn Return chart:

Plans that you made earlier in your life finally come to fruition. You have cared for others in the past, and now you have more time to enjoy life. Other people may find you a bit eccentric, or they may be surprised about what you decide to do with your free time.

SATURN RETURN on June 24, 2019:

Saturn in 3rd House of Saturn Return Chart:

In the second Saturn Return chart, Saturn is in the house of communication and peer relationships. These areas of life take on greater significance for you during the mentoring cycle. Because you have come through two full cycles, your level of self-awareness is much higher now, and there is a strong focus on using that awareness as the motivation and guidance system for your mentoring cycle.

Saturn in 3rd House of Saturn Return Chart:

In the second Saturn Return chart, Saturn is in the house of communication and peer relationships. These areas of life take on greater significance for you during the mentoring cycle. Because you have come through two full cycles, your level of self-awareness is much higher now, and there is a strong focus on using that awareness as the motivation and guidance system for your mentoring cycle.

Saturn in hard aspect with Pluto in Saturn Return chart:

Your best efforts get the best results in group activities. Yet you do much of your research and work in seclusion. You grow spiritually, developing the traits of an adept or magician. This is a time to set your ego aside and reach out for spiritual support and guidance.

Saturn in hard aspect with Asc. in Saturn Return chart:

You have the will power and endurance to tough your way through difficult situations. You gain personal strength and confidence this way. If you resist your day-to-day reality, you create tension and emotional conflict for yourself. If you are aware of the flow of energy and go with it, you find that your intuition leads you along the path of least resistance.

Saturn in soft aspect with Neptune in Saturn Return chart:

Plans that you made earlier in your life finally come to fruition. You have cared for others in the past, and now you have more time to enjoy life. Other people may find you a bit eccentric, or they may be surprised about what you decide to do with your free time.

Summary

At this stage of life, your responses to the energies around you should be more mature, more considered, and more consistent. As you compare the indicators at this point in life with those from age 28 to 30, you can see trends in your life. It helps to look ahead to future energy patterns, and aim for a place that will work with those energies.

Keep in mind that you may have many years yet ahead of you, and this is no time to quit. Instead, set your sights on specific, manageable goals that help you to develop and embrace the mentoring role.

Milestone IX – Retire or Re-vision Your Life?: Around Age 65 – 68

Consistent with earlier evaluation phases, one at age seven and one at around age 37, you are poised to evaluate your entrance into the mentoring period and to decide if you are on a comfortable path. You may have continued an active career path up to this point, and may even decide to continue for a few more years. If an actual teaching role does not suit you, you may teach by example. People will look at the way you handle problems, for example, and benefit from your experience.

You are likely to face some physical challenges throughout this phase, and attention to the demands of your body is essential if you are to continue to be active.

Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on April 12, 2027:

You may find that your ability to digest rich and spicy foods diminishes at this time. If you have a varied diet, you can probably have some spicy food without any difficulty, but you can’t eat chili at every meal. You may want to simplify your diet simply so that you spend less time in the kitchen. You will want to consult with a physician or nutritional counselor about the changing dietary needs of the sixty to seventy-something age group. You may find that your ability to foresee the difficulties in your work is diminished, or that you simply don’t want to be in charge most of the time. You can still navigate the rapids, but you seek a stronger craft, so that your journey is not as dangerous.

Milestone X – Inspiring Others: Around Age 72-75

At this point in life, you find that awareness results in a deeper level of creativity. For example, you are poised to see your work accomplished through others, instead of having to do everything yourself. You offer the inspiration for works, rather than doing the work yourself. You have heightened awareness of the roles you choose to play. You are also aware that you have somewhat limited energy, so you must make definite choices about how to direct your activities. You may find that while you need less sleep at night, you need time to rest during the day.

Your emotional life is steadier now. You have experienced increasing self-awareness around ages fifteen, when you were becoming more of a social being, and 42 to 45, when you were evaluating your successes or failures as a productive member of society. Now you are evaluating your capacity to help others to become aware of their own abilities.

Saturn opposition Saturn in cardinal signs on September 4, 2033: Saturn opposition Saturn in cardinal signs on January 2, 2034:
Saturn opposition Saturn in cardinal signs on May 23, 2034:

Your contribution may be to help others to find the inspiration they need. You are able to facilitate creative work while allowing them to do it their own way. This is similar to the role of cheerleader, in that you applaud everyone’s efforts, and refrain from telling them how to proceed. Your contribution may be to help others make the most of the emotional power behind their activities. While you probably won’t want to engage in this kind of activity 24-7, you are able to help in the clinches. You are aware of a very full life available to you at this time, although you see how different it is from thirty (or sixty) years ago.

Milestone XI – Think Young: Around Age 79 – 82

There is very likely a sense of wrapping up your active life. You find that you have accomplished a lot. You may have some regrets, but more about the things you have not tried than about the things you have. If you feel constrained to reach goals at this time, expect to apply greater effort now. This is a time to consider what might have been as just that – an alternate path that you did not take. Then focus on where you are now, and how to make the most of it – and think young!

You may still hold a position as the elder family member, and you may be active on the board of an organization, or as a volunteer in a community organization. In this way your wisdom is put to use in exactly the way you choose. You may be in a position to require some care-taking yourself. At this juncture you identify the shift of responsibility off your shoulders and onto someone else, to the extent that you have not already completed this kind of transition.

Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on November 3, 2040: Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on May 23, 2041:
Saturn square Saturn in cardinal signs on July 17, 2041:

This is the third time you have faced the need to establish your independence more strongly. You feel this is a time for choosing yet another new direction, but experience has shown that retirement is just not your style. Self-assertion is needed to resolve any old issues and tie up loose ends. Then your vision of the future has room in which to grow into reality. Objective decision-making is required at this time.

Milestone XII: Third Saturn Return: Around Age 86 – 89

At the time of your third Saturn Return, you have completed three full phases of your life. Traditionally, only a very few people lived to this age. With better nutrition and modern medical advances, more people are living well into their eighties, and even nineties. The physical body has slowed down some. Yet you continue to grow emotionally and spiritually. In addition, a significant part of your time may be spent in looking forward to the end of your physical life, and anticipating the next life. You have had three full passages of Saturn through your birth chart, and have therefore had three full opportunities to grow, to learn, to produce, and to mentor others. At this point you may be looking back as well, recalling the high spots and the low moments. To the extent that you have remained true to yourself throughout your life, you are content with the outcomes of your decisions.

SATURN RETURN on January 7, 2049:

Saturn in Capricorn:

As the third Saturn cycle comes to a close, you look forward to letting go of any egocentricities you still have.

Saturn in Natal 12th House:

Saturn in the house of private affairs – Your lifelong work has involved personal secrets, involvement with institutions of various kinds, and private activities. Through each cycle you have looked at this part of your life in detail, and you have experienced the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual perspectives. At each Saturn Return you have also found that another area of life took center stage, along with introspective activities.

Saturn in 6th House of Saturn Return Chart:

At your third Saturn Return, Saturn is in the house of service. While opportunities to contribute have come and gone, and jobs have also entered your life, kept you going, and then changed, you now are taking yet another long look at the role of service throughout the years. If your health permits, you will continue to give to your family, friends and community.

Saturn in hard aspect with Sun in Saturn Return chart:

At this transition you truly reap the rewards of your past actions. You have lived a long and fruitful life, even though it may have turned out differently from what you had planned in your youth. You are often in the company of serious people, or working in solitude.

Saturn in soft aspect with Mars in Saturn Return chart:

Use your energy for those activities that remain important to you, and let others take care of you to the extent that you need their help.

Saturn in soft aspect with Uranus in Saturn Return chart:

At this transition, you find that intuitive or psychic insights occasionally flood your awareness. This shift in consciousness can help you to relax any tensions you have endured in the past.

Saturn in soft aspect with Neptune in Saturn Return chart:

During this transition period, you may find that you are able to release old thoughts and feelings that no longer suit your purpose. You are motivated to help others, within the constraints of your physical, economic and emotional capacity. There will be health issues during this cycle that must be addressed, based on a chronic condition.

Conclusion

The twelve milestones of Saturn’s passage all stem from the birth chart. To make effective changes at any point in your life, you can look at your individual life map – the birth chart – and discover ways to use your gifts for greater success and happiness. The guidelines in this interpretation of Saturn in your life provide insight into the structures that work best for you, and also a path of least resistance for your efforts.

Introduction

Jupiter’s Promise, Copyright 2006 Stephanie Clement

“All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players;

They have their exits and their entrances

And one man in his time plays many parts,

His acts being seven ages.”

Quotations from Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act II, Scene 7

We all want to expand our lives. Perhaps we want to expand our mental skills by attending college. We may want to extend our earning capacity through career training. We may want to form strong partnerships or enter into a romantic relationship, in order to expand our horizons. (We probably don’t want to expand our physical weight!) Each of these possibilities relates to the planet Jupiter, and how it works in our birth charts. Shakespeare pointed out that we have many potential roles that unfold in regular rhythms throughout our lives.

This interpretation takes a look at your birth chart from the perspective of the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter takes about 11.86 years to go around the Sun. This almost twelve year period relates to many of the major life transitions you will experience throughout your life. Each milestone in this interpretation takes place at a Jupiter Return – when Jupiter reaches the same point in the zodiac it occupied when you were born. We can learn from Shakespeare’s humorous depictions of the Ages of Man.

Let’s look at the meaning of Jupiter in the birth chart first.

Part I – Jupiter in Your Birth Chart

“At first the infant,

Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.”

Shakespeare

Jupiter is the Santa Claus of the planets. Where it is found in the birth chart, we find a focus for our hopes and dreams. It indicates an area of life where we are optimistic, expansive, generous, and often successful. It also indicates an area of popularity. Sometimes Jupiter shows where we are overconfident or extravagant. It shows where and how we seek to develop a more idealistic or philosophical attitude, and also where we can be impractical, excessive, or ostentatious.

On a practical level Jupiter governs function – the way things work. This includes processes in the physical body.

Jupiter in Capricorn:

You have a profound sense of responsibility. When you follow this internal guidance system, you become a trustworthy partner, employee, or associate. Your capacity to become a strong leader is built on a foundation of trust and “correct” behavior.

Once you are into a project, you have a keen eye for the goals you have set. While others may get bogged down in the daily details, you keep one eye on the end result, and are able to make subtle corrections that keep big projects on course.

Patience is a virtue that you feel in your bones. You occasionally become dissatisfied with your own or other people’s progress, but ultimately you can stick with a project until it is completed, or until completion is clearly no longer an option. Even in failure, your peers respect your tenacity.

Jupiter in 12th house:

You can achieve success in professional fields like medicine, chemistry, or the oil business. You also are a good candidate for any area of the occult, as your psychic senses are strong and can be refined to a high degree.

At some point in your life you may be called upon to assist an older family member in managing private matters that involve sorrow or separation from their normal environment. Through this process you discover that both of you undergo changes in your perspective on life.

You also find yourself in peculiar situations from time to time. These moments involve odd relationships coming into your life or conditions that are far from what you may have expected. In the end, you stand to benefit from these interludes, and your optimism gets you through any uneasy situations.

Jupiter Sesquiquadrate Sun:

Your desire for recognition cause you to push yourself too hard. The internal stress may not be obvious to other people, but you certainly feel it. Exercise and proper diet go a long way toward managing stress. You can use the inner tension as a spiritual compass – more stress means you are tending away from the most appropriate path.

Jupiter Sextile Moon:

You often have the chance to smooth ruffled feathers. This is because you understand the emotional currents around you before others know there is anything happening. You are also able to express your own feelings, once you have paid attention to them.

Jupiter Trine Venus:

You find many opportunities to establish happiness through love relationships. Your sense of form and beauty is a big factor in career and relationship success. Your life is marked by the capacity to form positive lasting relationships.

Jupiter Square Mars:

One of your biggest challenges is to go at top speed without becoming reckless. You want everything now, and have to learn to take the necessary steps to avoid breaking things, including our own body. Once understood, your energetic approach to life reaps big rewards.

Jupiter Sesquiquadrate Uranus:

When you are focused on your internal stress and tension, you are not paying attention to the opportunities coming your way. When you argue with other people over petty details that you won’t even recall next week, you are wasting valuable time and effort. You would be better off keeping your thoughts to yourself.

Jupiter Trine Pluto:

Leadership potential can develop almost on its own as you pursue the many career choices in your life. Because of your ability to work with people smoothly, you rise to management or executive positions in the natural course of things. You like to feel you are in power.

~ JUPITER MILESTONES ~

Now that you have the basic idea of how Jupiter functions throughout your life, we will examine seven milestones. Every twelve years Jupiter returns to its position in your birth chart, giving you a moment of clarity concerning your perspective on life, your emotions, and your spiritual tendencies. Each milestone illuminates a specific area of your life, growing out of the previous twelve-year period. Because of Jupiter’s apparent motion from our perspective, you may have three returns within one year, giving you mixed messages for the following twelve years.

You may notice certain themes come up again and again. When you see this happen, it indicates that you will be reviewing ideas and renewing your intellectual and spiritual strengths during the coming period. You benefit from what you learned earlier and modify your behavior to avoid facing the same difficulties. If you fail to modify your behavior, a little excess can become a huge problem.

The first Jupiter milestone occurs when most people have achieved nearly adult size and development. Cultures around the world celebrate rites of passage around this time, as young people transition from childhood to teen and young adult life. You actually reach adult physical growth about midway through this period. You are expected to act like an adult in a thousand ways, yet you may feel unprepared for the demands of adult life, especially at the beginning of this period.

The twelve years following the first milestone can be difficult, filled with shocks and disillusionment. Your friends have different ways of doing things, and they have some less than helpful ideas about how to act. You still rely upon family to take care of your basic needs.

During this twelve-year period, you face huge changes in social relationships, habits, and attitudes. You break with some family beliefs, even if you maintain an outer appearance of acceptance. By the end of this period you know how you want to be different, and where you want to go in life.

Milestone One: Around Age Twelve

Whining school-boy, with his satchel and shining morning face,

creeping like snail unwillingly to school”

Shakespeare

Your Personal Milestone Indicator

JUPITER RETURN on February 23, 1972:

Jupiter in 2nd House of Jupiter Return Chart:

At age twelve, self-esteem issues rank higher in the scale of immediacy than financial concerns. You will use your energy to enhance self worth in every area of your life. You learn which creature comforts are near necessities, on both the physical and emotional levels.

This placement marks the beginning of a period during which you develop qualities of generosity and trustworthiness. You learn to enjoy life, and you may also develop a desire to gain financial security. During the next twelve years you will be more aware of your resources, and you will definitely be aware of any tendency to waste them.

Jupiter Sextile Sun:

Now is a good time to actively pursue a healthier diet, and to engage in regular exercise. You could tend to put on weight otherwise. Mentally, you benefit from meditation or other contemplative activities. Keep your mind busy, and spend less time and money on fancy furnishings and toys.

Jupiter Opposition Moon:

Now you should examine your motivations carefully. Self-interest is not in itself a bad thing. However, you will also want to consider the needs of others if you are to maintain your position of respect in the community. Thoughtful consideration will also improve personal relationships now.

Jupiter Quincunx Saturn:

During this period you have to make more adjustments than you might wish. You could face an imbalance of organ function, or you might experience frustration and anger when you are forced to make dramatic changes in your goals. To go with the flow now requires effort.

Jupiter SemiSextile Neptune:

Laziness or over-indulgence can cause ailments that are difficult to diagnose. Exercise and proper diet keep your body in good shape. Develop a plan for charitable giving, and stick to it.

Jupiter Square Pluto:

Your desire to run the world will catch up to you some day and cause untold problems. If you can be realistic for a moment, you realize that you only need to run your corner of the world. You don’t need to step on everyone else’s toes to meet your own needs and desires.

JUPITER RETURN on June 28, 1972:

Jupiter in 5th House of Jupiter Return Chart:

In the Return chart Jupiter is in the house of the immediate neighborhood in which you live. During the next 12 years, you find that creative efforts takes on greater importance. In addition you will discover how recreational themes occupy your time, and you will learn how to establish and maintain relationships in which you give love to others openly and freely

You will experience moments during this twelve year period when you are radiant with joy and love. Your faith is reconfirmed by more than one relationship. Your open, cheerful attitude naturally brings companionship into your life. You learn to demonstrate love for others more openly and sincerely. You also find that relationships inspire the best you have to offer.

Jupiter Opposition Sun:

Finances and spending could be an issue. Pay attention to business indicators, and reduce spending to compensate for sagging markets or income. In addition, trim your waistline by reducing your intake of fast and junk foods, and through regular exercise.

Jupiter Quincunx Mercury:

During this period you may need to adjust your words and your tone to suit situations that you have not faced before. Don’t discard your optimistic view. Do consider the best way to deliver your message, given the conditions you and other people face now.

Jupiter Quincunx Mars:

Match your optimism with greater adaptability now. You are used to leading, yet at this time you may become an active team member or dedicated follower instead. Because of a tendency to rebel against leadership, this period presents a lesson in accepting instruction.

Jupiter SemiSextile Neptune:

Laziness or over-indulgence can cause ailments that are difficult to diagnose. Exercise and proper diet keep your body in good shape. Develop a plan for charitable giving, and stick to it.

Jupiter Square Pluto:

Your desire to run the world will catch up to you some day and cause untold problems. If you can be realistic for a moment, you realize that you only need to run your corner of the world. You don’t need to step on everyone else’s toes to meet your own needs and desires.

Jupiter Sesquiquadrate Asc.:

You want to be important. The thing is, you don’t really want to make this your goal at the expense of friendships and working relationships. Instead, work out your long-term goals in private. Then apply yourself to reaching them while also cultivating those essential contacts.

Jupiter Trine MC:

You often find conditions are right for you to gain self-understanding while working on projects with other people. Your career is a great avenue for spiritual and intellectual development. When you take a brief pause in your very active life, you allow insights to arise from deep within your being.

JUPITER RETURN on October 20, 1972:

Jupiter in 5th House of Jupiter Return Chart:

In the Return chart Jupiter is in the house of the immediate neighborhood in which you live. During the next 12 years, you find that creative efforts takes on greater importance.

Your open, cheerful attitude naturally brings companionship into your life. You learn to demonstrate love for others more openly and sincerely. You also find that relationships inspire the best you have to offer.

Jupiter SemiSquare Mercury:

During this period you experience stress where intellect is concerned. To the extent appropriate for the age group, you can use the internal tension as a barometer of your mediation skills. There is a tendency to spread yourself too thin, and a reluctance to express yourself in writing that could manifest as a writing block. There could be too much or too little attention to intellectual matters.

Jupiter Quintile Uranus:

Your creative talents are amplified through your intuition. You can foresee future developments and be fully prepared with the ideas and products that will be needed. Thus you are ahead of the curve in planning most of the time.

Jupiter SemiSextile Neptune:

Laziness or over-indulgence can cause ailments that are difficult to diagnose. Exercise and proper diet keep your body in good shape. Develop a plan for charitable giving, and stick to it.

Jupiter Trine MC:

You often find conditions are right for you to gain self-understanding while working on projects with other people. Your career is a great avenue for spiritual and intellectual development. When you take a brief pause in your very active life, you allow insights to arise from deep within your being.

Milestone Two: Around Age Twenty-Four

“And then the lover, sighing like a furnace, with

a woeful ballad made to his mistress’ eyebrow”

Shakespeare

By age twenty-four, you have achieved near full intellectual development. This does not mean that you stop learning, but that your capacity for learning is fully in place. As you start out on your adult adventure, the excitement of life is often matched by the anxiety level.

You try to “act like an adult” at every turn. Yet your emotions remind you of earlier times when you felt helpless. During the years between Milestones Two and Three, you develop a better understanding of relationships. In the process your relationship to your parents undergoes dramatic changes as well. You learn to accept your emotions as your own.

Finally, you fill in the gaps in your education, either through more schooling, or in the “world of hard knocks.” By the end of this period, your unique personality is refined. You discover that your inner mental, emotional and spiritual environment is more important in many ways than the material environment.

Your Personal Milestone Indicator

JUPITER RETURN on February 3, 1984:

Jupiter in 1st House of Jupiter Return Chart:

In the second Jupiter Return chart, Jupiter is in the house of personality and personal affairs. These areas of life take on greater significance for you during this twelve year period of expansion. Because you have come through two full cycles, your persona can now expand and develop a more philosophical side. You establish your home to suit your own personality, and you seek profitable partnerships.

Jupiter SemiSquare Saturn:

Personal success fluctuates now. Some projects are huge winner, while other deals that seemed destined for the big time fall a bit flat. If you could predict accurately, you probably would not feel so frustrated. Plans for the distant future can buoy your optimism.

Jupiter Conjunct Neptune:

Your get carried away by your imagination from time to time. This is because there is such a rich range of ideas and feelings that flow through you, supplemented by strong psychic ability. You benefit from meditation or other focusing skill, as this is how you can address one situation or idea at a time more effectively.

Jupiter Sextile Pluto:

You are given opportunities to flex your leadership muscles, and your upward and forward progress is limited only by your capacity to identify the opportunity, grasp it, and move with it. Will power is one of our strangest assets as you make important life decisions.

Jupiter SemiSextile Asc.:

Internal adjustment is needed when you over-indulge. You save yourself some discomfort by moderating your behavior, especially where rich food is concerned.

Jupiter Square MC:

You may change residence and career as you grow in philosophical understanding of your chosen field. You see yourself as capable and durable, but your stamina is not limitless. Still, you can accomplish more than almost everyone else.

Milestone Three: Around Age Thirty Six

“The soldier, full of strange oaths, and bearded like the

pard, jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel.

Seeking the bubble reputation even in the cannon’s mouth.”

Shakespeare

At the third milestone you enter a philosophical phase of life, questioning your own purpose. People often associate the unrest during the latter half of this period – the mid-life crisis – with unfulfilling relationships, changes in the job scene, or anything else outside your own personality.

We often think that once past age thirty, we no longer continue to grow. Actually, our emotional, mental and spiritual growth occurs largely after that time. While we are busy developing careers, raising children, and expanding our social spheres, we continue to change psychologically and spiritually.

By age forty-eight at the next milestone, you probably see the good side of your decisions as well as the downside. But then you have greater understanding of your own inner workings.

Your Personal Milestone Indicator

JUPITER RETURN on January 16, 1996:

Jupiter in 5th House of Jupiter Return Chart:

At your third Jupiter Return, Jupiter is in the house of creativity. During the next twelve years, you discover areas of creativity that may have escaped your attention before now. Past successes in other areas help you develop confidence in your creativity.

This period is one of speculation. You are more impressionable than in the past, or at least you act on impressions more easily. You must exercise caution when beginning new ventures, as they will look promising, but may disappoint you in the final analysis.

Jupiter SemiSextile Moon:

You will encounter situations that seem thorny at the moment, but which are susceptible to solution when you take a calm, thoughtful approach. Others may marvel at your seemingly placid demeanor in the midst of external turmoil.

Jupiter SemiSextile Mercury:

Sometimes you feel compelled to tell the bare truth, and you find that others receive it with less enthusiasm than you had hoped. Initially, the truth has a sting. Later, others realize the value of cutting to the chase and getting on with the solution to their problems.

Jupiter Sextile Venus:

You find many opportunities to establish happiness through love relationships. Your sense of form and beauty is a big factor in career and relationship success. This period is marked by the capacity to form positive lasting relationships.

Jupiter SemiSextile Mars:

Although your efforts now are generally successful, they are not without their problems. You find that each new activity demands your full attention, and thus you may need to say no to some promising offers in order to do justice to projects you have already begun.

Jupiter SemiSextile Uranus:

In the long run events nearly always turn out favorably for you. Sometimes you are just thankful that you get through situations at all. The stresses of life can cause episodes of indigestion. Pay attention to your intuition. You may get an idea for an invention.

Jupiter SemiSextile Pluto:

In setting goals, think your plan all the way through to the end. In this way you avoid fanaticism, unpleasant encounters with the legal system, and wastefulness, while maximizing your leadership potential.

Jupiter Sesquiquadrate Asc.:

You want to be important. The thing is, you don’t really want to make this your goal at the expense of friendships and working relationships. Instead, work out your long-term goals in private. Then apply yourself to reaching them while also cultivating those essential contacts.

Jupiter Trine MC:

You often find conditions are right for you to gain self-understanding while working on projects with other people. Your career is a great avenue for spiritual and intellectual development. When you take a brief pause in your very active life, you allow insights to arise from deep within your being.

Milestone Four: Around Age Forty Eight

“And then the justice, in fair round belly with good

capon line, with eyes severe and beard of formal

cut, full of wise saws and modern instances”

Shakespeare

You may not be the round-bellied figure Shakespeare mentions, but at this milestone you may enter a somewhat less physical and somewhat more mental period of your life. There is no abrupt transition here – you just gradually find your interests shifting.

Over the next twelve years, you struggle less with internal conflicts. By the end of this period you integrate your diverse talents, skills, and goals, and you empower yourself instead of looking to the world for empowerment.

At the end of this period, your Jupiter and Saturn periods come into close alignment. Your sense of wholeness incorporates substance and process into one worldview. You accept your accomplishments and probably see the larger connections between Self and the Universe.

Your Personal Milestone Indicator

JUPITER RETURN on December 31, 2007:

Jupiter in 4th House of Jupiter Return Chart:

At your fourth Jupiter Return, Jupiter is in the house of family. Your mission for the nest twelve years, should you choose to accept it, is to progress toward understanding your core beliefs. You have lived at least part of your life in service to what you have been taught to believe. Now its’ time for you to uncover your own closely held beliefs and learn to tailor all your actions to them.

Jupiter Conjunct Sun:

You experience relatively good health now. If you have a good diet rich in vitamins and minerals, your emotional outlook is good, you feel physically strong, and you may experience some degree of healing without any particular effort in this regard. Career and other activities take you in positive directions.

Jupiter Opposition Mars:

You are more aware of your personal energy level now. Your optimism is strong, and you are therefore positive about decisions you make. You find that disagreements resolve themselves and you then can go on to more productive matters.

Jupiter Quintile Uranus:

Your creative talents are amplified through your intuition. You can foresee future developments and be fully prepared with the ideas and products that will be needed. Thus you are ahead of the curve in planning most of the time.

Jupiter SemiSquare Neptune:

Speculation is not a good idea for you, as you may experience large losses. You are easily misled by the glamour of a business offer. You can learn to recognize the “too good to be true” qualities in any dealings.

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto:

You are a powerhouse of ideas and plans. You can be a skilled manager, as you bring intelligence, personal control, and skillful communication to the table. Your underlying philosophical belief system helps to moderate any tendency to coerce others to do what you say. Endings in your life are fortunate in that you can use your will to find a better direction for your efforts.

Jupiter Quindecile MC:

Your drive for success and recognition can take you over, leaving little or no time for relationships, recreation, or any of the things you might really enjoy. You also tend to push your own views on other people while ignoring their opinions. Yet you benefit from sharing opinions in the social and career venues. In any leadership role, be sure your values come first.

Milestone Five: Around Age Sixty

Because the typical life span has increased since Shakespeare’s time, there is no quotation for this milestone. It’s not easy to determine which part of life is longer, but this seemed like the logical milestone to skip assigning one of the “seven stages of man” because people are retiring later and living longer. Age sixty used to indicate a long life, but today many people live well into their seventies, eighties and even nineties, remaining active members of society.

If you have maintained good health, you can foresee many years ahead of you, and you are not about ready to stop here. You may find you need to re-examine your life and make a new plan. This is a time for mulling over the past, not because you are stuck in it, but because you want to distill the values you have found and let go of old ideas that no longer suit you.

Our children often say that we are better parents to our grandchildren. This is because we can let go of old rules and methods, change our attitudes, and joyfully engage life in a fresh, relaxed way.

This can be a period of spiritual inspiration. Its’ also a time to recall goals from an earlier time, choose the goals you still want to accomplish, and focus on them as fully as possible. While we often think of the period before age sixty as the productive time of life, many people are accomplishing their greatest work after that time.

Your Personal Milestone Indicator

JUPITER RETURN on December 16, 2019:

Jupiter in 3rd House of Jupiter Return Chart:

At your fifth Jupiter Return, Jupiter is in the house of communication. This milestone marks a transition from a primary focus on productivity toward a mentoring perspective. During the coming period you are positioned to teach others. Out of both your successes and failures, you have refined significant material that others may profit from. Now you compose lectures, classes, or simple mentoring opportunities where you help others to benefit from your experiences.

Jupiter SemiSquare Mars:

You find that you are irritated by the direction you receive from others, and that you want to expand according to your own desires. Depending on the age group, you may resist parents, teachers, or experience marital arguments. Resolving frustrations is a periodic theme.

Jupiter Trine Uranus:

You are apparently a very lucky individual. Even if you never win the lottery, your life generally falls into place with the precision of a well-oiled machine. Little escapes you that could be useful in your work or family life.

Jupiter Quintile Neptune:

Your psychic ability is expansive. You can reach far outside yourself to experience what is happening around you. You sometimes “feel” other people’s feelings, as though they are your own, and you can use this information for healing, communication, or other purposes.

Jupiter Square Asc.:

You provide challenges for yourself in the form of puzzles about which direction to pursue and what opportunities to grasp. You are usually very successful in making friends and cultivating the right relationships to improve your work and family life. You tend to put on extra pounds and have to manage your diet accordingly if you want to remain or regain a trim physique.

Milestone Six: Around Age Seventy Two

“The sixth age shifts into the lean and slipper’d pantaloon, with

spectacles on nose and pouch on side, his youthful hose, well sav’d,

a world too wide for his shrunk hank; and his big manly voice, turning

again toward childish treble, pipes and whistles in his sound.”

Shakespeare

This milestone ushers in a twelve year period during which the mysteries of your own mind can be examined. In the process you discover a higher power that resides in and acts through you.

This period is ideal for mentoring younger people because you are both receptive to the student’s needs and expressive of your own wisdom. You feel less attached to outcomes, and more focused on clear, effective processes.

Unique opportunities come into your life during this period. You are able to undertake activities that didn’t even make your list before. You may experience a life filled with miracles large and small.

Your Personal Milestone Indicator

JUPITER RETURN on November 29, 2031:

Jupiter in 9th House of Jupiter Return Chart:

At your sixth Jupiter Return, Jupiter is in the house of transcendent values. You examine your life and find that you can rise above many petty experiences that once would have kept you from enjoying the moment. Your values are not so much rooted in the material world any more, but rather in abstract ideas and ideals.

Jupiter SemiSextile Mars:

Although your efforts now are generally successful, they are not without their problems. You find that each new activity demands your full attention, and thus you may need to say no to some promising offers in order to do justice to projects you have already begun.

Jupiter Conjunct MC:

You have a philosophical view of life. In most situations you are well aware of your own position, the conditions around you, and how your desires fit in with the possibilities. You probably exhibit compassion toward others that parallels your compassionate approach to your own emotions. This period is especially fortunate for you.

Milestone Seven: Around Age Eighty Four

“Last scene of all, that ends this strange eventful

history,is second childishness and mere oblivion;

sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”

Shakespeare

With modern medicine and longer life spans, many of us never get into this condition, or if we do, it is very close to the end of life. What we do experience is an inevitable slowing down of the physical machinery. Healthy nutrition keeps many people alert and active right up to the end of life, even in the nineties and past.

This is not the time to quit, but it may be time to take a different approach to life. Be yourself! Engage in social activities, consider your relationship to the Universe, and celebrate your connection to others and to the Divine.

During the coming twelve year period, you attain a sense of dominion over your personal motivations.

You also understand the hows and whys of family beliefs. You represent the foundations upon which all other family members have built. Interestingly, you also have a vision of the future to share.

Jupiter Square Mars:

You feel rather rebellious during this period. You may feel that the rules are made for other people, and that you should be free to do whatever you choose. Hasty action before you have all the necessary information can creative difficult problems.

Jupiter SemiSquare Saturn:

Personal success fluctuates now. Some projects are huge winner, while other deals that seemed destined for the big time fall a bit flat. If you could predict accurately, you probably would not feel so frustrated. Plans for the distant future can buoy your optimism.

You find fortunate connections with doctors, dentists, and other care givers. You enjoy the contact with them, and they enjoy you too. You spend time organizing your possessions, or helping someone else to get more organized. There may be teaching or mentoring work for you to do now.

Jupiter SemiSquare Sun:

You tend to stress out when you don’t get the recognition you feel you deserve. When you feel this way, first determine what you want, and then change your own behavior to make that outcome more likely. If you determine that people or things outside yourself are the true source of the problem, then takes steps to remove yourself from situations that you cannot tolerate.

Report Order FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions related to Report Orders

WHAT IF MY ORDER DOESN’T ARRIVE WITHIN 24 HOURS?
Reports are generally delivered within 24 hours of order placement, or if there were missing details, within 24 hours of the receipt of full information needed to generate the report(s). Occasionally, an order might arrive a little late if there was an unexpected influx of orders, for example, a power outage, etc.

However, if 24 hours have passed and you don’t find an email from Kristen – Cafe Astrology (reports @cafeastrology.com) in your inbox or spam folder, then please write and let Kristen know. Please understand that we make every effort to send your order, and if this is impossible, you will receive a refund.

Some people have problems with email delivery, particularly with emails that have attachments. In these cases, we can put the report(s) in a secure place online for download. If you prefer this method regardless, write Kristen an email with the request or add the request in the notes with your order placement.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY REPORT IF I WASN’T ASKED FOR MY EMAIL ADDRESS?
By default, Kristen sends report orders to the email address associated with Paypal. That’s the email that comes in with your payment and order details. You can specify another email address if you’d like, but keep in mind that a Paypal receipt email is automatically sent to the customer as soon as payment is made, and that email will go to the email address registered with Paypal.

SHOULD I USE 12 PM FOR AN UNKNOWN BIRTH TIME?
No, you should specify that the birth time is unknown rather than guess it so that the report can be created specifically for unknown birth times.

Although unknown birth time reports can be a little shorter than the reports with known birth times, they only include information that is known. Most importantly, the ambiguous information is excluded from the report.

Some people feel that they will get more for their money if they guess at the birth time, as they assume that more interpretations in the reports are better. However, it’s much better to have a shorter report with accurate interpretations than a longer report with a mix of accurate and inaccurate interpretations! In this case, less is definitely more.

CAN I ORDER A SOLAR RETURN (OR OTHER FORECAST REPORT) FOR A YEAR IN THE FUTURE/PAST?
Yes, absolutely. The start date of a report can be any date in the past or the future.

In the case of a Solar Return, the start date will be on or in the two days surrounding the birth month and day due to the nature of this type of forecasting technique, but the year of the report can be any year in the future or past.

In the case of the Time Line report, the software only allows the start date to be the first of any given month, for example, May 1st, 2017.

DO I NEED TO PAY WITH A PAYPAL BALANCE TO PLACE AN ORDER?
No, the shopping cart used on the site is run by Paypal, but all the usual payment options are included so that you can use credit cards, debit cards, and the like. There are different shopping cart technologies available to sellers, and Cafe Astrology has selected the Paypal shopping cart as its solution. All payment details are sent to Paypal and not to Cafe Astrology. Paypal sends Cafe Astrology an email with each order that lists the order details and email address, not any payment information. We are not set up as a merchant at this time.

WHY ARE THE PLANETS’ TRANSITS OF THE HOUSES IN MY REPORT NOT THE SAME AS THOSE OF YOUR HOROSCOPES?
Reports are based on your birth time, while horoscopes are based on solar charts. A solar chart places the Sun’s sign on the Ascendant, and most people don’t have the same Sun and Ascendant in their natal charts. While a solar chart is a valid chart and certainly has its merits, the natal chart should be the first you look at.

WHICH HOUSE SYSTEM DO YOU USE?
For reports, the default house system used is Placidus. However, you can request another house system for your order (example, Koch, Equal, Whole Sign, etc.).

WHY DO MY RESULTS DIFFER FROM THOSE FROM OTHER SOURCES?
It’s important to note that there are many different valid methods for arriving at various astrology calculations, including the Zodiac (Sidereal or Tropical), system of houses used, method of progressing the houses in the case of progressions, use of current or birth location for certain forecasting techniques, and many more. It’s rare that an astrology software program is making wrong calculations. Typically, discrepancies have to do with different systems and not about one or the other being “wrong.” When the Ascendant differs, it’s usually about an ambiguous time zone since we must use the time zone that was in effect at the time of birth and historical time zone information is not perfect. It is simply not true that any one particular software program has every historical time zone correct, although many efforts are made to get them right.

If you receive unexpected results, please send an email to Kristen who can look into the matter and explain the reasons for it, such as an ambiguous time zone or a particular calculation method. It’s important to provide as many details as possible.

WHY IS THE DATE OF MY SOLAR RETURN NOT THE SAME AS MY BIRTHDAY?
The Solar Return chart is drawn for the date and time of the return of the Sun to its exact position at birth, and not to the birthday itself. The Sun returns to its birth position once a year on or near the day of birth, and rarely coincides with the time of birth. For example, if my birthday is September 2nd, 1970 @ 5:00 PM, my Solar Return could be September 1st, 2016, @ 4:24 AM one year, September 2nd, 2017, @ 1:22 AM the next, and so forth. If the birth data is entered correctly on the report, you can expect the Solar Return date and time to be accurate.

HOW CAN I GET MY REPORT ORDER QUICKLY?
Report orders are promised within approximately 24 hours from the time of order placement and complete information required to create the report. Kristen sends out reports by email and she is at the report computer typically eight hours a day. Because orders and responses come in from all around the world at all hours of the day and night, rush orders are not possible. However, to prevent delays, making certain that you’ve included all information requested and that it’s accurate will prevent the need for email back and forths that will cause delays.

Typically orders are emailed out within 12 hours or so, but they do sometimes come closer to 24 hours. The most common reason is a sudden influx of orders. There are times when more than the usual number of orders come in and it takes much longer to complete orders.

WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY REPORT?
Within 24 hours of order placement, you should receive an email from Kristen, either as a request for further information or clarification if there is missing/unclear information or with a report attachment. If the information is incomplete, Kristen will request it from you and you will receive your order within 24 hours of receipt of the full information necessary to create your report.

DO I HAVE TO ENTER MY BIRTH DATA FOR EACH REPORT THAT I WANT TO ORDER?
If you are buying more than one report in one order, you can enter birth information only once if you prefer. However, it’s important to note that some reports require different or additional information, so be sure to supply all that is needed to create your reports.
