Roughly every seven years, transiting Saturn makes an aspect to the natal position of Saturn, signaling a test of the inner and outer structures which govern our lives. The Saturn return, occurring every 27 – 30 years, is a culmination point in the Saturn cycle. When Saturn returns to its natal position, we are brought into especially close contact with our destiny, such as a sense of how we are to act in service to the community of life, or simply finding ourselves in circumstances which help us to actualize our greatest belonging. Whether that calling or destiny is consciously recognized, accepted or rejected depends on a great many other factors, but in general, the Saturn cycle correlates to a process of maturation. This involves parting with or changing elements of our lives in order to create the space to embrace an evolution of our way of belonging to society and to the world.
The year 2017 brings the generation born with Saturn-Uranus-Neptune in Capricorn—those born during various months of 1988 through 1990—into proximity of their Saturn return.
Through March 31, 2017, a Saturn Return Survey is open to select members of the Capricorn stellium generation. The survey asks only six (6) yes/no and multiple-choice questions with no written response required, though there is an optional space at the end of the survey for additional comments if you choose. The survey focuses on very broad, general themes that are common at the Saturn return, such as a desire to withdraw from social interaction or to change the amount or quality of social interactions.

The survey is open to those born on the following dates:
Feb. 15, 1988 – June 9, 1988
Nov. 12, 1988 – Jan. 21, 1989
Aug. 13, 1989 – Oct. 10, 1989
Those born on these dates currently have transiting Saturn within at least 10 degrees of conjoining the natal Saturn, which means that the individual will likely be experiencing some themes and movements in their life that are good indicators of key features of their Saturn return, which will begin in earnest (for most of them) in 2018.
The survey data will be used to help raise astrologers’ awareness of some of the needs and common experiences of those with the Saturn-Uranus-Neptune stellium in Capricorn, in hopes that astrologers can be better prepared to support this generation through an important life passage.
As thanks for participating in the survey, the first 15 eligible respondents will receive a 20-minute reading from me, Erica Jones, as a thank you gift. Another 15 of the total remaining respondents will be drawn at random to receive a 20-minute reading from me as a thank you, once the survey closes on March 31.
