Major Saturn Transits Throughout Your Life & Crystals to Help You Get Through
Wondering what the major Saturn transits in your life are? You should! Because Saturn is packing a kick every once in a while – and although the results are beneficial, surviving the transits is another thing entirely. Here is a list of all the Major Saturn Transits in your life and the best crystals to help you get through them:
Saturn brings us face to face with our limitations. We have a dream, but we have to work hard to make it come true. We might want to live the moment indefinitely, but we have to fulfill social responsibility, a role through which we give back to the world. The elder of the Solar System takes about 29.5 years to complete a full orbit around the Sun, returning to the same place in the zodiac where it was at the time of your birth. Imagine him as a stern grandfather with an hourglass coming by at your door, asking one key question: “Your time is limited. How well have you been using it?” Your Saturn return might be anytime between 27 and 30 years. By this age, maybe you’ve chosen a career or a life path already made a few (or more) efforts toward it, started seeing some results. On the contrary, maybe you have no idea what you’re doing yet.
Since Saturn’s role is to structure and to mature, in both cases you might see what you took for granted up to now in a completely different light. Apparent order and meaning, if not profound enough, might get shaken and rebuilt on a new, solid foundation. A job you thought you loved, a relationship you were invested in out of inertia: now is the time when everything superficial and not aligned to your inner self gets stripped away so you can become an improved, more mature you. And if you’ve been wandering through the world with no apparent aim, this is the time when Saturn urges you to settle down, to find purpose and the inner determination to fulfill it.
