I am finding aging to be such a funny thing.  Life really treats those 30 and under with kid gloves.  Living forever seems to be an option.  Then the third decade arrives.  Thirty is associated with a person's Saturn return, and the classic meaning of this time is "life's bills come due".  Metabolisms slow down.  Tanning and smoking start to show up on the skin.  This continues through 40 and then it can accelerate. 

The forties seem to be a really mixed bag for adults.  Hair is lost and weight is gained.   The abuse from athletic adventures of the past show up in achy backs and joints.   Fifties and beyond?  That is waiting for me in just two years. 

All through this are a mixture of physical appearance and physical ability.   Mental and emotional health are tested.  The quantity and quality of life are both a friend and an enemy. 

The outcome?  It can be so different, both karmic and random.  Which will impact us more?  Is there a choice?  We'll see.
