Everyone knows the dreaded “midlife crisis” that hits you in your early 40s – but did you know that it’s triggered by astrological influences? Not only that, but there are also important transitions planned for you (and everyone else!) at around ages 29, 50-51, and 58-60 that will also be triggered by planetary transit during your personal birth chart.
With the help of astrology, you can turn those predictable feelings of urgency, dissatisfaction, and frustration into positive change. However, the key to successfully managing these experiences is your own sense of what’s out of sync, what feels like a trap, or what’s missing in your life. Then you can look at your willingness to let go of the things that are no longer working. Astrology can only tell you where to go search.
Since the other transitions build on what you learn at 29, let’s start here. Sometime between 28 and 30 you experience what astrologers call your first “Saturn return” and its aftermath. Saturn rules the structures in your life and the way you affect your experience of the universe through the belief and activity structures you create.
If you haven’t followed your dreams and your own individual values from the start, your Saturnian return often feels like you’re experiencing tremendous (and usually uncomfortable) pressure from other people and circumstances that are beyond your control. But what really happens is that you are presented with what you really want, and Saturn helps you get it – whether you are ready or not!
For example, if you’re pursuing a career in medicine rather than art because your family expected it, now is your first opportunity to change direction and follow the path of your dreams—and relatively painlessly. The things you lose: job, relationships, things you considered security – were obstacles. Saturn is here to help you remove anything from your life that doesn’t fit with who you really are. And remember, endings always give way to new beginnings.
A word to the wise, be diligent in this task the first time, as letting go of what you are still damaging to when you hit 58-60 (your second Saturn return) can cause quite a bit of drama!
In search of meaning
The midlife transition can be even more dramatic than Saturn’s return because this time it’s triggered by two slow-moving or transpersonal planets: Uranus and Neptune. It’s ushered in by Uranus, king of the shocking and unexpected, and intensified by Neptune, ruler of dreams and delusions, and the combination is challenging!
It’s not uncommon for people at the peak of their professional lives to suddenly drop out to sail around the world alone for a year — or drop their spouse and plunge into a freewheeling lifestyle, complete with arm candy. However, this only happens to people who have put a lot of effort into ignoring their true desires in order to do the expected.
Beneath the sudden quest for freedom, however, lies the urge for meaning. Suddenly it is no longer enough to live for external purposes. Your goal now has to come from within. Many of the dreams and urges that surface at this time are true reflections of your inner being – but many are not, and only time will allow you to separate the wheat from the chaff. The more you can acknowledge and understand your impulses—even if you delay it for a while—the more successful you will be in this transition.
Search for spiritual transformation
Chiron, known as the Wounded Healer, returns to his place in your natal chart at age 50-51, taking the crisis of meaning that marked your early 40s and intensifying it once again. Chiron marks the most vulnerable point in your horoscope, the place where you feel “less than” – but it is also the place that contains your power to heal and transcend.
While the Saturnian return is about physical or “real world” changes and the Uranus/Neptune midlife challenge focuses on emotional growth, the Chironian return is about overcoming ego attachments and Putting your rational and linear mentality in the right place, serving as soul power. While the spark that initiates this transition occurs around age 50, completing that task can easily take the rest of this life—and beyond.
find your true self
Each of these transition points is an opportunity to get to know your innermost being better and to build on that knowledge to create a life that is truly an expression of your deepest values and most precious dreams. An astrology medium can help you examine more closely when these points will occur in your life and what you need to do to prepare for them.
