Surviving Saturn's Return: Overcoming the Most Tumultuous Time of Your Life

Astrologers know that every 28 years, Saturn will enter your zodiac sign. This explains why people entering their 30's seem to experience a high volume of change, usually the stressful kind. Using a type of astrology counseling, these two columnists for Teen Vogue have written a book, "Surviving Saturn's Return: Overcoming the Most Tumultuous Time of Your Life", designed to help those of us entering that age deal with the challenges associated with each individual sign as it relates to the Saturn placement.

While the Saturn return cycle to our zodiac sign happens every 28 years, the first time is the one discussed in the book, people who are turning 40, 50, and so on will experience turmoil as well, so if you purchase the book, you may want to keep it handy on the bookshelf and revisit it as you approach the milestones.

The book is laid out very simply, and is not an in depth, heavy read on karma astrology, rather hands on reference book. The table of contents is formatted by headlining the cause of the turmoil, depending on which sign you are. For instance, if you are an Aries, you need only turn to the Aries section to see what karmic lesson you are supposed to be working on for that cycle-persona-to see why all of a sudden you seem to be pushing everyone in your life back to a distance. The 30 year old Aries is often consumed with how others view them, and if you are one of the few shy Aries people, you may subconsciously try to move through this lesson by pushing people away. If you are a Taurus, you will be dealing with the first milestone of attachment, not just to materialistic things, but struggling with the inability to let go. If you are a Pisces, you can expect to go through the stage of wondering about the meaning of the universe, and this will manifest itself in the need to go on spiritual journeys or take a lot of theology classes.

Written with humor and a simplicity that even the beginner to astrology counseling can understand, this makes an unusual reference book. Along with their website, I believe it genuinely appeals to the 28-32 year old.
