" The adolescent must never be treated as a child, for that is a stage of life that he has surpassed. It is better to treat an adolescent as if he had greater value than he actually shows than as if he had less and let him feel that his merits and self-respect are disregarded". Maria Montessori
Introduction
Adolescence is one of the trickiest parts of life. We all know this and yet adolescents, their parents and teachers are often left without a means to understand how best to find and give support. Astrology can offer much to help people understand themselves as well as other people. For young people growing and developing at an exponential rate, self-understanding is crucial. For parents and teachers, understanding how to help the children in their care is extremely important.

This report was written by a highly qualified astrologer and teacher specialising in child development. It can help guide parents and teachers to become the authority figures they need to be. For adolescents, it can be the first step in understanding themselves through the lens of astrology. It is not intended to replace a live consultation with a professional astrologer who is qualified to work together with parents and adolescents to help improve how they relate to each other as they both work through this brief but intense time of growing up. One other important point to mention is that of child protection. No astrologer should consult with people under the age of 18 without a parent present. The author also advises that parents read this report in conjunction with their teenager, helping both gain an understanding of this introduction into the realm of astrology.

Although this report does not include planetary transits, the author would like to point out that there are significant transits or moments in time to look for when journeying further into adolescent astrology. For instance, the current position of the planets Jupiter and Saturn connect to Birth Charts at well-known milestones in child development. Jupiter makes these important contacts at about every three years and Saturn makes its important contacts about every seven years. In adolescence, the crucial ages are 12 (for the Jupiter return), 14 (for the first Saturn opposition) and 15 (for a Jupiter square). These years are the important times for parents and teachers to focus their resources and energy.
