Survival Guide For Your Saturn Return

Survival Guide For Your Saturn Return

 

What is a “Saturn Return”?

If you’re hearing this for the first time, it is basically an astrological term for when Saturn makes an entire orbit around the Sun and ‘returns’ to the same position at your time of birth. Because the orbit of Saturn takes about 29.5 years, most people experience a “Saturn Return” around the ages of 29, 58 & 87 in their lives. Because the orbit of Saturn is irregular, it might occur in the 1-2 years before or after those ages mentioned.

So what’s the BIG deal?

The words associated with Saturn are boring or dull, such as; Duty, Responsibility, Long-term plans, Effort, Commitments etc.  It will be a period in which you question the efforts and commitments made over the last 10 years of adulthood and reflect on whether or not this is the direction you would like to proceed on into the next phase of your life. It is not uncommon to experience the need for sudden career changes and needing to pursue the things that truly matter.

BUT before you run off like a headless chicken, freaking out about leaving your jobs and making drastic life changes, consider the following pointers to help you Survive Your Saturn Return:

#1 Give some serious thoughts and considerations into the next phase in life

It is sort of like organising your wardrobe, but more towards applying it to your life goals. “Well this cartoon t-shirt worked for me previously in my teens, but not anymore!”– It’s about knowing what to throw out and consider keeping what is now important in your life, which you would like to work towards to in the long-term (10-20 years). Do allow yourself to dream of what you would deem as successful, a challenge you take on so there will be no regrets. It could come in the form of; positions in your career, financial goals, marriage, starting a family, pursuing a life-purpose, etc. Have these goals to be a bit of a stretch but ultimately realistic and achievable.

#2 Implement a structure / framework to achieving those life goals

Once you are clear of actually what you want to do and what your life goals are, set up a structure or a system to help you achieve those goals. One of the ways, is sharing about these goals with someone you trust, and ask them to hold you accountable for achieving these goals. Breaking goals down into smaller goals and setting milestones with a realistic timeframe could help a lot too by allowing you to keep a close track of your progress, and make any necessary adjustments.

#3 Find small successes and celebrate achievements along the way

Importantly, it is also realising that these goals are long-term in nature, which they will not be easily achieved with an overnight success. – Don’t beat yourself up if you’ve not achieve what you wanted especially within a short span of time. Learn to give credit to yourself and celebrate the things in which you have started to progress in or achieve over the next couple of years.

Another great way for you to find guidance and directions in your life is  picking up Astrology. Through understanding Astrology and your own Natal chart, you will discover insights to who you are truly as a person, your core personality, identity and life purpose. Many of Selfstrology Academy’s students join the class at the point of their Saturn Returns and are realising for themselves what they truly want to achieve and contribute to others in their lives. Some of them have found the courage to leave disempowering relationships and careers, in pursuit for greater, more meaningful professions and fulfilling relationships.

The Fault In Your Stars – By Brenan Yeo

The Fault In Your Stars

You are real problem in your relationships.

By Brenan Yeo

 

Stumbling through the internet, one often finds relationship advice in abundance, which offer catharsis for, perhaps, heartbroken and jaded millennials.

Skeptics often scoff at the generalised “readings”, noting that the words could apply to anyone — and particularly those of horoscopes.

Believers of astrology are sometimes mocked for subscribing to these generalisations. “Oh, we didn’t match because our signs are different.” “He’s too much of a Capricorn for me.” “She’s a Scorpio… I don’t think we would work out”.

I cannot deny that at my weaker points in life, horoscopes did seem to make an absurd amount of sense. I sometimes ponder if there is an actual reason, to my Capricorn need for “structure and order,” according to what the internet tells me.

My curious search for the truth behind astrology led me to the heart of Arab Street. Tucked away in the lines of shophouses, stands Selfstrology, an astrology school.

May Sim, founder of Selfstrology, greeted me through the large window overlooking the entrance. Her petite figure seemed almost equal to the table she was seated at, but her air of authority was unmistakable. Walking out, she flashed a full-toothed grin, and greeted me. “Shall we begin?”

 

WRITTEN IN THE CHARTS
May boasts a formidable list of qualifications: 15 years of practice in the field and a hard-earned bachelor’s equivalent in studies from the International Academy of Astrology. The student-turned-instructor at her alma mater is currently working on a book on psychological astrology.

The biggest question I had was how horoscopes work. Lunar and stellar energies certainly could not derive and profile my personality. May, however, told me otherwise.

“You see, when anyone is born, the stars are at a specific angle and alignment, depending on where you are born on Earth. That’s why I asked for your specific birth time, as well as the location. This lets me digitally generate a chart to see what are the exact angles are of the stars I need to see. The positioning of these is the information I have about you.”

“Personality profiling is about identifying your behavioural patterns. So once we know what you want and how you’re like, we can see how to get there.”

I was still skeptical, but the key to understanding lies within an open mind. I decided to probe a little deeper.

She pulled out my birth chart, which was dominated by a circle, split into twelve sections. It was decorated with handwriting, obvious that she had prepared it herself, and painstakingly so. Unfolding the document, she pointed to one intricate symbol.

“This is Venus, which we otherwise recognise as a symbol for love.”

Her hand traced the circular shape, stopping at the sign immediately below it.

“And this is Pluto, the god of the Underworld. Their close proximity tells me that, unfortunately, your relationships are filled with chaos.”

Okay, my relationships have been all but peaceful. I’ve weathered emotional abuse, conflicting interests and plenty of tears, but still — it could be a coincidence.

The consultation lasted for an hour, growing more intensive with every flick of her pen. Any incorrect readings would have fed the skeptic in me. I was reading into every word she said, waiting for an error.

But there were none.

With pinpoint accuracy, the signs told her everything about me, from my latent scars of a poor childhood to my ideal career choices. All the things I knew about myself intimately, she laid out on the table, bare. I felt naked — stripped, even.
ok
I could have been anyone, of a hundred different permutations of backgrounds and cultural differences. And yet, here I was, with a complete stranger who seemed to know everything about me, from a flimsy piece of paper to boot.

Despite my deep-seated discomfort, May’s cheery demeanour persisted.

“The charts don’t lie. But I’m not here to make you uncomfortable. I’m here to help you piece together what all of these things mean, and give you advice on how to best move forward,” she said.

That is exactly what she did for me. She pieced together my broken love life and identified this curious pattern I never would have noticed alone, especially not through convenient listicles I read through tears at night.

“Most people start their relationships like this: finding someone, sustaining the needs of the relationship and then fulfilling themselves through it. The question here is, how do you find someone if you don’t even know what fulfills you?”

She paused to give me a mental breather.

“So we work backwards instead — find out what fulfills you in a relationship before finding someone who meets those requirements.”

That felt like a wonderful piece of advice for someone constantly heartbroken. I was filled with shock and awe.

“It’s all in the charts. You can’t get this kind of detailed and personal reading from any crappy newsletter online. If you want to get a proper reading done, go to a qualified astrologist. You wouldn’t trust a friend who spent a few days reading medicinal articles and then starts calling himself a doctor, would you? Same thing.”

Astrology is a complex field of study. I could not summarise the years of experience necessary to understand how these charts work, much as I could not do the same for medicine.

Is it accurate? Spine-chillingly so.

Is it for everyone? It could be. Traditional Chinese medicine is not for everyone, but some people do swear by it.

How does this help with relationships? It is a guide, after all, a reference for us to remind yourself what we want and need. Whether you believe in astrology or not, May gave me quality
advice as a person, and it is, and will be, something I remember for a lifetime.

How To Obtain Your Birth Chart

How To Obtain Your Birth Chart


What is Astrology?

We get asked this question a lot! And especially as with the Asian context, Western Astrology usually gets confused with Bazi, Fengshui & Vedic Astrology – which are all fundamentally different from one another. So is Western Astrology just based on the 12 Zodiac signs?
Usually, when people associate the 12 Zodiac signs or magazine horoscopes, they might just be referring to the Sun Sign. However, Astrology goes beyond that and is the study of how cosmic bodies (planets including the Sun, asteroids and other calculated points etc) affect and influence lives.


This is where it begins

Before we sound like space cadets, Astrologers are actually looking at some specific indicators which are based on precise calculations for the exact time of birth of a person or significant events. Given a specific time or an exact moment, Astrologers will be able to generate and map a chart of the planetary positions which may look like this:

So to have your own chart generated, click the button below:

Or visit: https://selfstrology.com/chart-generator/

You will be prompted to input the following details such as:

  • Birth Date
  • Birth Time (Exact To The Minute)
  • Birth City

Upon generating a chart, a simple auto-generated report is provided as well. Although it does give you a quick interpretation of the Planets in Signs, but it does not really give you a very accurate description of how it plays out in your life. The Basic Astrology Course, offered by Selfstrology Academy would be able to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to interpret all the symbols within the chart.

Otherwise, to have a more detailed interpretation but you find it tedious to understand what all the symbols and indications are? It is recommended to see a professional Astrologer who will be able to breakdown the chart to give you a proper analysis of your personality profile.

Q: How did you find out about Astrology?
A: My mother used to sell magazines in the past, when we helped her out at the stall, we would browse through the magazines and happened to chance upon a free Astrology website, where I generated my birth chart for the very first time. I didn’t understand the details at that time but I was enticed by it, so I began to self-learn Astrology for 8 years, while also helping my friends to read their charts. Then a friend told me there are Astrology classes in the US, and asked me if I was interested to take up a formal course? So I went online and found the International Academy of Astrology (I.A.A.), it offered a 3.5 years Diploma course in Astrology. Without a second thought, I enrolled myself into the course. It was an online course and there were assignments to be submitted every week, and it was a requirement to pass every module in order to graduate. I am currently the only Asian to have graduated from the academy, and I had joined the faculty as a lecturer 2 years ago, teaching students all over the world online.
Upon graduation, I founded Selfstrology Academy. Initially, I provided the consultation services only, then my friends started to expressed an interest in learning Astrology and asked if I would offer a course, I never stopped teaching since then. Now I have more classes than consultations, by end of this year I would have more than 100 students.

Q: In the common understanding of Astrology, is it similar to a zodiac analysis?
A: Most people know their Sun sign and that’s all they know about Astrology, but this type of “Popular Astrology” doesn’t explain much, there is around 6 billion people in the world who share the same Sun sign as you, it’s impossible that they have the same character and same attitude towards life as you.
In fact, everyone has 10 Planets in their birth chart, including the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, etc. By using Astrology, we are looking at the location of the 10 Planets in the 12 Houses. Each house represents a different area in life, like children, career, money so on and so forth. From the location of a planet, we can understand a person’s perception and attitude towards that area of life.

Q: The “Psychology Astrology” that you use, is this a type of Astrology unique to your academy?
A: I am not the only Astrologer in the world who uses Psychological Astrology. Astrology has always been linked to predictions, and during the first few years of providing consultations, I realised that predictions can only let my clients know what will happen in a couple months’ time, but it doesn’t solve the root cause of the problem, thus, not helping my clients by very much. By using Psychological Astrology, it’s a way to discover repeat patterns in people’s way of thinking and behaviours, and often they are linked to past experiences; only by understanding this, we then can help our clients address situations.

Q: Do you have any successful consultation examples?
A: I once saw a beautiful lady in consultation who was in her thirties, she never had a boyfriend and whenever a person of the opposite gender tries to have physical contact, she would avoid him. By interpreting her birth chart, it indicated that there were themes of “big and tall male” and “manipulation”, also it was associated with something sexual too. So I asked her directly and she told me that in the past there was a male neighbour who molested her when she was 4 or 5 years old. That incident  traumatised her, and this had resulted in her having problems working with a male authorities figures too.
Not every girl who was molested will change their view towards men, but this lady’s chart tells me that she’s not very confident and her way of thinking towards men and will be affected by this. After she understood impact of the traumatic past, she successfully went on to find a boyfriend, and even invited me to her wedding 2 years ago.

Q: How frequent do your clients come for a consultation session?
A: During a consultation session, I will provide a detailed analysis of the client’s birth chart, together with a 1.5 to 2 years forecast on major events. Some clients choose to return every year for a consultation session for the purposed of life planning.

Q: Can Astrology be used to pursue good fortune and avoid bad luck?
A: Western Astrology and Eastern Astrology are different, the former does not have the mentality of “bi” (to avoid), it emphasizes more on solving the root cause of problems, whereas the latter emphasizes on fate. For example, if your marriage isn’t going smoothly, Eastern Astrologers might suggest that the “feng shui” in your house is not desirable and you need to change the position of something, whereas Western Astrologers will try to understand the root causes of the problems in the marriage.

 

For a 2-Hrs Consultation, the fee is $480; a 1 Hr Topical-based Consultation on Career, Family, Money, Relationships or Self-Development is $250; if you’re interested for more information or about the Astrology courses, check them out at: www.selfstrology.com.

 

Trial Consultation:

“You don’t appear ‘Aries’”, my friends once told me. Only after I got my birth chart analysed, then I realised I have the way of thinking and behaviour of 2 other zodiac signs. Other than our natural character, what’s interesting is – every time that the planets in the universe moves, it affects and changes our attitudes too. For example, you might have enjoyed travelling in the past, but now you might not be so interested in it anymore, or your hobbies change over time etc. What and when are the energy fluctuations happening in near future? And what are their effects on you? A Consultation will allow you to be better prepared. When you are more conscious about yourself, you’ll be able to make better judgments and decisions.
