In my last post about my Saturn Return, debdeb asked:
if you’re seeing someone who’s going through their SR, especially now as Saturn’s going retrograde, what can you expect? What should you to support him/her? Can you expect him/her to come out of the SR more confident [about your bond], or more clearsighted and perhaps more ready to go it alone?
Well, it all depends.
First I have to give to standard astrological disclaimer that the entire chart(s) should be considered. These things are complex. Relationships don’t take place in a vacuum. They are a magic charge that happens between two unique individuals coming together as they are each differently influenced by the sky and each other.
That said, here are some general things I can say on the subject.
Saturn realizes. He takes seeds of dreams and makes them grow. He also wipes away illusions. He makes things real.
If the relationship is real, supports who your partner knows himself to be and his vision for the future, gives him a sense of security, and is practical… Then you’re locked in (for the time being.)
If the relationship is built around something flimsy and ephemeral, is a block to some larger success, or doesn’t make sense in the light of day… You’re fired.
The great thing about Saturn is he moves pretty slow. So none of this will be a surprise. You can hear the old man’s Buick creeping up the drive long before he makes it to the door. You’ve got time to work on your issues. And that pleases Saturn. You don’t have to have everything figured out, as long as you’re working on it when he walks in. You get lots of chances to fix your mistakes.
If you’re unsure about the relationship, ask the opinion of someone much older. They will most likely be spot on. If you don’t like the answer, ask the opinions of several someones much older. Than you’ll have to accept it.
I’ll write some more about this tomorrow, addressing the retrograde question/ how to support someone through their SR. It’s past my bedtime now.
Those of you who have made it past Saturn’s infamous return, please tell us, what was the status of your relationship, did it change?
