Interesting read given my situation

Okay, let me start by saying that I am always skeptical about astrological signs, readings, etc. but sometimes I do stumble on something and it really resonates with what is going on in my life. I know you can analyze the validity of these things all day but I am not really interested in that...the point is that I read this and I can't help but relate it to my current position. At least it gets you thinking...

Saturn Return is a word astrologers use to describe the coming of age
or initiation into adulthood which takes place between 28 and 30 years
old. At this time the planet Saturn has circled your chart and returns
to the place where it was at the time of your birth. Invariably, this
marks one of the most important times in your life, a time of endings
and beginnings, a time to discover your authentic self and correct your
course in life if it seems you're heading in the wrong direction.

The Saturn Return, which lasts about two years, is a time for
introspection and self-evaluation. It is a time of taking
responsibility and often a time for making serious choices.

Saturn Return energy is like pruning. Not all directions in life are
bad ones, but they may not be the best ones. Saturn Return asks us to
forsake so-so directions and have the courage to find the one that is
most like us, the one we were intended for when we were born.

The trouble is, this may not be the one our parents had planned for us.
Saturn Return is a time to consider your unique individual needs, the
contribution you want to make to the world, the resources that are
important to you, inner and outer, and who will go with you on your

Making the right choices, the authentic choices, at 30 guarantees more
happiness and fulfillment later in life and usually better health
because it is stressful to live a lie. Stress is a major contributor to
all physical illnesses.

There is actually a Saturn Return every 30 years. The second Saturn
Return occurs when you are between 58 and 60 years old. Those who live
long enough, like Robert McNamara, may also experience a third Saturn

I'm on my second Saturn Return, and believe me, both occurred at pivotal times in my life. There may just be something to all that pseudo-science.

Don't be too hard on my boy once you start coaching him in person. I think the two of you together can achieve, and possibly surpass, whatever goals you set for yourselves.

Best of luck on your new endeavors.
