They’ve lived hard already and learned hard, too—which makes it a head-scratcher that celebs like Justin Bieber, Zendaya, Tom Holland, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Megan Thee Stallion and the Jenner sisters are just beginning their first Saturn return in Pisces on March 7, 2023. How is that even possible?
The Saturn return is a cosmic rite of passage that comes around every 29.5 years when Saturn cycles back into the zodiac sign (and house) it was in when you were born. You can read more about that here, but suffice it to say, these three-year-long passages can feel like an epic growth opportunity and extended boot camp rolled into one.
Across the board, the Saturn in Pisces crew is made up of a bunch of old souls. Pisces is the eldest zodiac sign, which rules sacrifice, addiction and spiritual transcendence.
Born with challenging Saturn here, this group entered the Earth plane with some heavy karma. But as they graduate from the 27 Club (phew!) and step into their first S.R. what will emerge? (For starters, may we suggest not getting matching tats in the honeymoon phase of a relationship?)
Are you starting your Saturn return?
The first Saturn return can be the “worst” one since it’s a clear jolt into adulthood. No matter how often people confuse you for a college freshman, you just feel older. And that’s not a bad thing! Suddenly, the laws of the mysterious universe click into place, and you gain your stride. The second Saturn return, which happens in the late 50s is a time for stepping up as a master teacher. And the third Saturn return comes around in your 80s, when you get to be celebrated as a badass elder.

The celebs are starting their Saturn return in Pisces
Here are a few of our predictions for celebrities going into their Saturn return in Pisces in 2023! As the planetary drill sergeant heads into Pisces until February 13, 2026, it will serve a new set of lessons (you can read about the Saturn in Pisces transit in our article here).
Things are already heavy at the Bieber household, due to Justin’s ongoing ordeal with facial paralysis. On March 1, a week before his S.R., the Pisces pop singer canceled his remaining tour dates. While his hit Unstable remains on the charts, the lyrics “I tried to scare you, scare you away/Showed you the door, you adored me anyway” could foreshadow a tough road ahead for him and wife, Hailey, who has a 0º Aries Saturn and won’t begin her S.R. until 2026. Both have alluded to working on mental health in the past, which they may need to do together and separately over the next three years.
We’ve already seen this multihyphenate Libra crush the singing, rapping and fashion game. Born with Saturn retrograde in Pisces in her 5th house (AKA the Hollywood house), we predict that acting is up next for this Grammy winner. But get thee to rehearsal, Doja! While she’s sure to master the craft, this genre may require greater practice for her to perfect the deep-diving roles her Saturn in Pisces placement allows her to play.
The SATC trio will all be experiencing their second Saturn return while season two of And Just Like That premiers in the summer of 2023. Timelord Saturn rules aging, and this theme is sure to persist in the coming season. But with the ringed planet making waves, the series could bring bigger conversations about ageism into the zeitgeist. Who better than a Pisces (Kristin Davis) to take the charge, backed by a pair of outspoken Aries, SJP and Cynthia Nixon.
Age ain’t nothin’ but a number when it comes to who the Aquarius popstar-turned-actor star will date. With Saturn in fluid Pisces (0º in. his chart), we expect more fashion-forward moments from Styles. His S.R. is pinging his fifth house of glamour and romance—and square his Sagittarius North Node and Pluto in Scorpio. In the coming few years, could become the spokesperson for pansexuality, polyamory and all non-conforming “Aquarian Age” dating models.
Jimin (Libra), V (Capricorn), RM (Aries), J-Hope (Aquarius), Suga (Pisces)
No surprise that most of the legendary K-Pop group has Saturn in Pisces, the sign that rules dancing. But will they soon debut a more mature sound? As the fellas join Saturn return graduate Jin (who has Saturn in Aquarius) for this rite of passage, we anticipate an emerging new sound. But knowing Saturn’s propensity for challenges, there may be some exits or feuds along the way. On March 2, youngest member Jungcook deleted his IG account with 52 million followers because he “barely uses it.” Hmmm…
At 85, the Sagittarius legend confesses her biggest regret is that she was “not the kind of mother that I wished I had been to my children.” Well, good news: clock-watcher Saturn says, “better late than never,” especially when in Pisces, the sign that rules forgiveness and emotional work. That Fonda ancestral trauma may be healed yet. Meanwhile, she continues her lifelong activism, true to the unwavering compassion of her Saturn in Pisces.
