I just wrote about Saturn on my blog, cindystubbs.blogspot and what Saturn means to me.
I didn't know astrology at the time of my Saturn return and don't even remember exactly what was going on at that time.
I know what you mean about dreams....
I have Mars in Aries on an angle.
If that were not enough my Mars is conjunct a star with Martian qualities!
In my mind when I am going to sleep I see Mars at the bottom of my chart radiating like a star about to explode with tremendous energies like a soon to explode volcano!
I must say although Saturn is on the ascendant I don't dream about Saturn, rather in my dreams I am putting things in drawers and making lists and cleaning the house.
Saturn likes things to be orderly.
