Why Your Twenties are so Damn Hard
At Least, According to Astrology
We all know that our twenties aren’t all fun and parties like our parents had us believe when we were kids. Growing up adulthood was made to look so appealing, and I guess, had they been more honest, maybe we would have never tried to grow up in the first place.
From figuring out how to pay bills, rent, and having a career, all while navigating a less than desirable political landscape, and shitty dates who waste your time because some dumbass just had to invent the dating app, our twenties are already setup to be pretty challenging. The only people who say your twenties are easy, are those who slacked off by drinking and partying, and are now paying for it in their thirties. Psychologically and spiritually, it can sometimes even feel impossible to push through, but what if I were to say there’s deeper explanation for all of it? What if almost everything that happens in your twenties, is just the motivation you need to become a better person?

- Between 21–22 you experience Saturn square Saturn
- At age 27 you have your progressed lunar return
- Ages 27–28 you also have your Nodal Opposition
- Between 29–31 you have your first Saturn Return
Of course, depending where the planets are placed in your natal chart (because you’re more than just your sun sign), there can be other transits that you’ll also experience.
First off, what the heck is a transit? A transit is when one of the planets touches a planet in your natal chart (either literally or on an angle) and whatever that planet represents, it’ll…
