Teen Astrology: The Ultimate Guide to Making Your Life Your Own

Picture this: You are worried about how to deal with your flighty sister who borrows (and looses) all your stuff. Your best friend is all crushed out over the cute boy in algebra and won't talk about anything else. Your parents have decided that you are grounded-again. What to do? You're tired of asking your friends for advice; it always seems wrong anyway. So one day you decide to check out the horoscopes in the paper. Sure, looking to the stars could be a little flaky, but it worked for the ancient Greeks, Romans, Aztecs, and Egyptians, not to mention Nancy Reagan and Elvis. Drew Barrymore and Gwen Stefani are also big fans of astrology and they can't be wrong, right?

You grab the paper from the kitchen table, but, of course, the daily horoscope only mentions careers and marriage and that stuff you won't care about for another 10 years. Back on the bus to confusionville.

I say, "Worry no more." (Okay, you probably still have things to worry about, but this will help.) M. J. Abadie, professional astrologer and psychotherapist, heard the cries of teens and delivered to us her newest book, TEEN ASTROLOGY. Here are all the tools needed to decipher the heavens and their effect on you and your buds, 'rents, and crushes.

The most interesting (and crazy making) part of being a teen is dealing with relationships, so Abadie places special emphasis on interplanetary connections. You will learn how to balance the outer, social personality of your Sun sign with the inner, emotional core of your Moon sign. Figure out your main honey's planet stats and compare them to your own; Mars and Venus work together in the weird realm of love. And let's not forget the very important and very stressful parental area --- maybe the whole reason why your Mom snoops on your phone calls is that she has her Mercury in Scorpio.

Don't panic if you can't tell your Ascendant sign from a stop sign --- Abadie includes plenty of easy to read tables for research purposes. The book also has a lot of journal like pages, where you can write down what you are discovering about yourself and those people around you. And for the more spiritually minded, the book provides meditations and visualizations for you to take your esoteric knowledge a step further. I think its time you spaced out (figuratively).
