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