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.

Stefanie Iris Weiss, M.A., is a New York City-based writer, an adjunct professor of writing and gender studies, and a professional astrologer. She is the author of five self-help books for young adults.

Sherene Schostak, M.A., is a New York City-based psychotherapist and professional astrologer, and the creator of Zodiac Dance: The Work-Out DVD.

"Fun, funky ... an addicting read for any astrology junkie [that] packs a wallop for anyone approaching her 30th birthday."
--Bust magazine

“Saturn Returns! Sherene and Stefanie bring a contemporary view of the "coming of age" issues that young women around the age twenty-nine and a half encounter. Focusing on common experiences that arise during the rite-of-passage into full adulthood, this book offers a glimpse into those challenges - with humor and in plain language.” – Erin Sullivan, author of Saturn in Transit

I can't believe I've never heard this term before. I am totally at ease about turning 30 now that I understand it. The authors of this book know how it feels to be bombarded with the everyday thoughts of getting older, but their totally rich and hip explanations and advice put it all in perspective. Thanks to this book, I'm a Saturn follower now and am prepared to leave my twenties.

This incredible book, Surviving Saturn's Return, is one the best Astrology books ever written. (With all due respect to Sidney Omarr). Sherene and Stefanie have hit on one of the biggest secrets in Astrology and uncovered it in the most sincere way- This book should get 100 stars- not just 5.
Stefanie and Sherene write in a way that speaks to you - not at you. Truthful and direct, but not harsh, and with a large dose of hope for the future. And as they explain to you who Mr. SAturn is and take you on his roller-coaster journey through each sign, they travel WITH you -almost like they are there in person, speaking directly to you. Their refreshing theory on Saturn and his Return ANSWERS SO MANY questions that many other books on Astrology leave out. You begin to understand why you may be going through continous crisis and start to put pieces of your life puzzle together.
"Surviving Saturns Return" is FOR and applies to ALL women who have had a continous crisis or obstacles thoughout their life -not just women who are turning thirty or near the big 3-0.
Sherene and Stefanie have truly charted and uncovered previously little known and little explored territory with their detailed analysis of Saturn and his Return.
In addition, their website WWW.Saturnsreturn.net is a complementary support tool that stands well on it's own. A GREAT website to go to and explore.
But get the book AND visit the website to get the full blown effect.

Format: Paperback
This book came to me at the perfect time, like a gift from the gods. My life was breaking apart and I couldn't figure out why everything seemed to be happening at the same time. A friend told me that I was in my Saturn Return, and I had no idea what she was talking about. But I googled it and found this book (and the author's website) and the chapter that pertains to me is DEAD ON. They talk about different issues that come up for women about to turn thirty, with respect to their date of birth. I never thought that this stuff was valid before. But it was really uncanny how exactly what they wrote was happening to me. (And how these have been life-long issues for me.) Also, the writing is really down to earth and it's full of really useful information. The reviwer "Satire" is way off. It's not syrupy at all. It's funny, actually, and chatty, like an Oprah show. I haven't read a lot of astrology books, but this is by far the best one I've ever read.

I am presently 29 and going through my Saturn Return. I've always thought of astrology as entertainment and not as a tool that could actually help me to understand the fluctuations of my mood, feelings, behavior or the world around me. This book has put everything in perspective for me. Whether or not you buy into astrology, if you're turning 30 and you feel like your life is in chaos, you'll find solace here, and a planetary basis to support it. The writing style's quick and witty and the writers are clearly experts in what they preach. Highly recommended.

I just read "Surviving Saturn's Return" and I can't believe how much it helped put the last year in perspective. I only wish I'd read it before I had to live it! I didn't even believe in astrology before I read this book, but everyone I know has reported the same sort of turmoil in the year before turning thirty, so I thought it might help. It's a really great and useful read--highly recommended.

I'd never heard of the "Saturn Return" before a friend gave me a copy of the author's other book, Fate of Your Date. A coupla months ago I'd just gotten out of a very, very bad relationship (thank god) and she wanted to lighten my load with a fun little guide to dating. But then I read up on the authors other projects on their website (Ivillage show, Elle magazine, etc.) and joined their Myspace page. Little did I know that I'd found the answer to all my suffering and angst over the past year. I turned 29 in October, and I'm right in the heart of my Saturn Return. Thank god for the Saturn Sisters and this empowering, life-affirming book. It explains why turning thirty isn't the end of the world, shows exactly how your birthday reveals your current experiences, and basically maps out your karma. It's totally all about knowing you're going thruogh the Saturn Return before you actually do. I have gotten the book for all my friends between 28 and 31, and everyone is relieved to know that they're not going crazy, they're just going through their Saturn Return.

This book is a fun, witty, informative and contemporary read. It helped me understand the mystery behind the mania of turning thirty. I can't imagine making this transition alone!

Oh I really needed this book a few years ago! The authors are straight talkers-who explain (with a good dose of humor) why your life seems to suddenly go out of whack, and more importantly how to deal with it. I keep going back to the book--not only for the straighforward helpful advice, but I love the humor, the examples that they use..well everything. I heartily reccomend this book. Wonderful--even if you get a bit confused about astrology like I do.
