I've been reading about and exploring Buddhism for the last few years, especially during my Saturn Return. What's fascinating to me about the Buddha is that, when he was 29 (during his Saturn Return), he chose to leave the sheltered life his father provided for him, after he was confronted with the suffering that exists in the world. For the next six years, he studied and practiced meditation in a journey to discover how to find liberation from suffering. At 35, he achieved enlightment and then spent the rest of his life teaching and sharing what he learned with others. This is obviously a very shortened version of Buddha's story, but it's still is a great illustration of how a Saturn Return can manifest in a person's life and shows what's possible when a person takes responsibility for themselves.
