It is my pleasure from time to time to promote quality work from fellow astrologers in our world-wide community. I’ve found over the years that interest in the 29-30 year Saturn Return, that astrological “coming of age” which we all go through at the end of our twenties, never wanes. Working with the Saturn Returns of 29-30 and 59-60 is a special interest in my own astrological practice. So – I am most happy to introduce what looks to be a very interesting and valuable piece of astrological research, soon to be conducted by Erica Jones who keeps a brilliant blog over at Real Imaginal.
Here is the promotional information for the survey:
Through March 31, 2017, professional astrologer Erica Jones is conducting a “Saturn Return Survey” that is open to **select members** of the generation born with Saturn-Uranus-Neptune in Capricorn (1988-89).
The survey link is here:
As thanks for participating in the survey, the first 15 respondents are eligible to receive a 20-minute reading from Erica as a thank you gift. Another 15 of the total remaining respondents will be drawn at random to receive a 20-minute reading from Erica as a thank you, after the survey closes on March 31.
The survey data will be used to help raise astrological community awareness of some of the needs and common experiences of those with the Saturn-Uranus-Neptune stellium in Capricorn, so that astrologers can be better prepared to support this generation through the important life passage which corresponds to Saturn returning to its natal position, i.e., the Saturn return.
NOTE: The survey is open to those born on the following dates:
Feb. 15, 1988 – May 26, 1988
Dec. 3, 1988 – Dec. 9, 1988
Nov. 12, 1988 – Jan. 21, 1989
Aug. 13, 1989 – Oct. 10, 1989
(The reason for this restriction is explained on the first page of the survey.)
Again, the survey link is here:
I do hope as many as possible of you will participate. As my regular readers will know, I love doing astrological research myself: it’s what makes astrology come alive. Many thanks!

Thank you for helping to spread the word, Anne! I look forward to sharing updates.
I have a question for all astrologers. It is a fun challenge. This may take a little trial testing. First take the 12 readings with Mercury in the signs, and do then it again with Mars. Take the names of the constellations and planets out, and shuffle them. Hand them to anyone, and have them read the astrology. They then pick the one that explains them the most. Then how many are in each constellation after revealing whom they are. They can take them home and take their time. No cheating. This automatically makes Astrology a true science when done with the planets. I do this, so that we are aligned with precision. Then your Venus and Mars, and Sun and Moon readings are together properly with relationships. If anyone can get the calculations together, that would help everyone. We don’t need to know how many people are in each one, rather an average for Mars and Mercury. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone got any ideas, they can lemme know there. Have a great day.
yes, many variations on this type of reductionist research have been done before on astrology and none of it has come up with anything particularly useful in terms of demonstrating astrology to be scientific. That is because it isn’t, so applying reductionist methodologies is fairly pointless.I’d suggest you acquire and read ‘Chaos, Chaosmos and Astrology’ by Dr Bernadette Brady,a recent monograph from the Sophia Centre Press, which explores what connections there may be between contemporary chaos theory and astrology. Dr Brady convincingly demonstrates the futility of applying narrow reductionist methodologies to the practice of astrology.
However, I have left your comment on this post in case anyone is sufficiently interested to have another go at at the kind of research you describe.
