The Saturn Cycle
The “Pay the Fiddler” cycle is imposed by the mean, lean, karma machine, Saturn.
What goes around comes around every 28 years. Think of those Saturnine rings as barbed wire fencing you in the cosmic classroom until you get it right. Work hard enough and Saturn will grudgingly grant you success, but not without a fair share of editorializing that you shoulda done it this way, or you shoulda done it that way.
The Saturn Returns at ages 28 and 56 are the coming of age cycles that are truly the payoff or pay up in terms of your Universal Debt.
But wait, it’s not just at age 28 or 56 you get to deal with Saturn. He comes marching through your life about every 7 years bringing everybody’s favorite pastime: the reality check.
