Jan Spiller's "Astrology for the Soul" and Elizabeth Spring's "North Node Astrology"
Jan Spiller?s ?Astrology for the Soul?and Elizabeth Spring's "North Node Astrology"
There are some strange ideas on the Nodes floating about out there in the cyber-world, however Jan's theories are well founded in the fundamental principals of Western astrology. Elizabeth's book, North Node Astrology
, also picks up on Jan's thinking with her understanding of the Nodes, but adds to it the light of Jungian astrology. Both women see the Nodes as an axis that sheds light on the karmic lessons and aspirations and intentions of the Soul. However, some of the more fundamentalist Vedic Indian ideas that are "out there" in cyber-space are so claustophobic and disempowering, that they engender fear in fate and destiny. Be careful of these literalist positions that deny your free will and pigeon-hole your fate.
As the author of a new book on the Nodes--"North Node Astrology; Rediscovering Your Life Direction and Soul Purpose," Elizabeth gives Jan a lot of credit for her research in this book. The rest of us stand on her shoulders and take what knowledge and wisdom we have picked up along the way, and add to what she has done.
The Nodal story that is embedded within your astrology chart can be compared to a spiritual mandala that you can keep coming back to for spiritual guidance. It's a growing exciting field, but we need to stay on track with a wholesome understanding of the Nodes as an expression of compassion, Jungian ?compensation? and karmic lessons?not as malefics and fate-embedded points. They hold some of the most delightful and numinous secrets of the soul's journey. ~elizabeth spring www.elizabethspring.com
