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

9780071421966: Surviving Saturn's Return: Overcoming the Most Tumultuous Time of Your Life

For the first time, psychological strategies for surviving the astrological fallout of turning the big 3-0!

Many young women approach their 30th birthdays with anxiety. They suddenly notice every tiny wrinkle, question the speed of their corporate ladder climb, or suffer from a biological clock that rivals Big Ben. Is it vanity, fear of aging, early midlife crisis, or insanity?

It's actually the result of what astrologers call the "Saturn Return," a phenomenon occurring every 28 years, when Saturn completes its cycle through an individual's birth chart. At this crucial juncture, women often experience a crisis of self, unexplained chaotic feelings, or the uncertainty of personal and professional crossroads.

In Surviving Saturn's Return, the first book to explore the subject, the authors combine their psychological and astrological expertise to demystify this cosmic source of strife and offer self-help strategies for surviving, even thriving, during this "quarterlife" crisis. In a fun, friendly, and reassuring tone, they explain how to deal with everything from the father complex to money to marriage to maturing confidently into adulthood.

From the Back Cover:

The definitive guide to turning thirty . . .

Women approaching the big 3-0 have a powerful force to contend with. The panic of this age is universal― wrinkles inexorably appear, careers and relationships crash like out-of-control aircraft, and the biological clock is ticking louder than ever. This phenomenon is the Saturn Return, the first major milestone of adulthood.

Surviving Saturn’s Return is just what you need to survive this profound, provocative, and sometimes chaotic journey.

Sherene Schostak and Stefanie Iris Weiss combine their psychological and astrological expertise to teach you:

  • Where Saturn lives in your own personal chart―and where it’s headed next
  • The twelve most important lessons including how to discover your true self, when to form a plan for your future, and how to cope with relationship trauma
  • How Saturn affects career, money, love, friendship, self-esteem, and fulfillment and how to work with Saturn’s messages to improve these areas in your life
  • And more, including real-life stories culled from dozens of women before, during, and after their Saturn Returns

Surviving Saturn’s Return is the first book of its kind to answer the earth-shattering questions that arise at this quarter-life crisis. Whether you’re about to turn thirty or have already crossed the threshold, this book is a life raft in the sometimes-stormy sea of aging.
