Could Your Saturn Return Change Your Life?

I Had A Really Hard Time
“Oh man, my Saturn return was rough. I lost my job, had a bad breakup, had some major health issues, and ended up moving back in with my family. I saw all these people around me doing such incredible things with their lives and I just felt like I had failed. I began having to count my blessings in little ways—I realized I had an awesome family, realized losing one job meant I had the opportunity to consider going back to school for a career I loved, and realized it was okay to start fresh. And I did. Now, I think I’m happier than I was in my early twenties, but it wasn’t easy to get here.” —Carolyn, 35


 I Stopped Caring What Other People Thought
“It was definitely a process, but I pinpoint the age of 27/28 as the age where I was like, You know what? I’m done pretending. I ended up totally changing my look—I got pink streaks in my hair, got a nostril piercing and a tattoo on my forearm—and also just stopped second guessing myself. I lost some friends and had some lonely periods, but it was a really awesome time of self-discovery.” —Emily, 31

I Went To Therapy
“I never thought that I “needed” therapy, but the job I worked at had this free employee assistance program—and I had been having a hard time with some personal stuff. So I finally went to talk to a therapist when I was 28, and it was really life changing for me. The ability to just talk about what was working and what wasn’t in my life without judgement was something I think everyone should experience.” —Sid, 29
I Traveled Solo For The First Time
“I was 28 when I took my first backpacking trip. Before, I would always wait for friends to have the same time off as me. But I went to Spain for two weeks by myself, and it was scary and  magical at the same time. I think I realized that, Okay, who I am isn’t defined by who my friends are.” —Jess, 33
