About the Saturn Sisters
The Saturn Sisters tell it like it is. Stefanie Iris Weiss and Sherene Schostak are not your typical crusty, ancient astrologers — they provide down-to-earth advice that you can use in the real world. When it comes to dating, breaking up, breaking down, and putting yourself back together again, the Saturn Sisters have been there and done that, and want to share their wisdom with you. Forget what you know about astrology and get to know the Saturn Sisters through their books, blog, workshops, and horoscopes. Bust Magazine urged its readers to “let Weiss and Schostak crack their can of sweet zodiac whoop-ass on your Cosmo’s Bedside Astrologer.” Take it from the Sisters’ readers and clients — you’ll be ever so glad you did.
The Saturn Sisters’ most recent book, Fate of Your Date: Divination for Dating, Mating, and Relating was published by Chronicle Books in 2006. Their seminal Surviving Saturn’s Return: Overcoming the Most Tumultuous Time of Your Life has guided thousands of women (and open-minded men) through the journey of their late twenties and early thirties. The Saturn Sisters are currently the resident astrologers for Elle UK, Elle Netherlands, and Elle Czech. They’ve written for Elle Japon and Elle Taiwan. They were the astrologers for Teen Vogue from 2003 until 2006. Friends for more than ten years, they both live in Manhattan’s West Village, where they share astrology-infused brunches. All publishing queries should be directed to their literary agent, Jennifer Unter at The Unter Agency.
