Professional astrologer and Jungian psychotherapist, Elizabeth Spring, weaves personal stories with the astrological wisdom of the North and South Nodes. There are detailed explanations of how to find and understand your own karmic Nodes as well as the life-changing transits that impact your life direction, soul purpose, career and relationships.
Elizabeth's heart-felt chapter on the "Astrology of Menopause" has been re-published around the world, and the humorous chapter "Cocktails and Karma" explores the bridging between astrologers, ministers, and therapists. The "Family Karmic Inheritance" inspires a compassionate view on family relationships.
Endorsed by Jungian author Jim Hollis, and evolutionary astrologer, Steven Forrest, this book is a reference book as well as a collection of articles that shed light on unconscious motivation. An inspiring guide for transmuting the grace and grit of life into the gold of healing and personal success.

"More of her personal story than a learning tool"
I'm somewhat neutral, although it has been a bit boring and not straight to any point(s).- I'm about halfway through and the author is quite tiring with her personal stories and quotes and opinions. There doesn't seem to be much useful astrological information in terms of the basics. She hasn't left any good, definite understanding about anything she's writing about thus far. I really want to like this book because I love astrology and truly believe it is an ancient science of sorts. The north and south node dynamic hasn't been a very clear one for me to grasp in my overall understanding, nor has it seemed particularly significant- and I wish the author would do a better idea of defining it's purpose and useful ways to understand their influence in our charts.
None... actually her story about her divorce and then dating her husband kind of annoyed me. I almost feel like instead of really understanding astrology and objectively applying it when sure about the effects, her theories are much more malleable and subjective and the way she understands things are only in terms of her own life- if at all. Like she explains away her life circumstances with astrological transits and aspects which another astrologer may not necessarily see as having a significant effect, if any (noticeable) at all.
It was incredibly nasal and robotic sounding.
Not at all. It would basically be the author's life played out in a movie.... not enough astrological info to be intriguing.
I'm going to return it.
"There is some good astrology mixed in with the authors own sad personal story"
There is some good astrology in between the authors personal journal of her own heartbreak self loathing.
She assumes that everyone is also wounded and feels unloved. If this is you then you may like this tact. But if you have self confidence and are generally happy you just feel sorry for her.
However, try to ignore the whining because there is something to learn in terms of astrology. And considering that there are not many audio books on the this subject it is worth listening to.
Try to listen to the whole thing because while sometimes she goes on for a while talking about her personal demons and self love you never know where the astrology will come in.
I would only listen while I was doing something else and do I could tune out when she got too off track.
It is as if she really needed someone to talk to and get her problems off of her chest. I hope this helped her.
The narrator for the most part is good but she mispronounces Uranus. It should be pronounced YUR-en-us. But she says
"your-ANUS". And she says it over and over in the most inappropriate places and it gets quite funny especially when in the context of the authors very sad personal journal.
It reminds me of an old Victor Borge comedy routine.
I gave it a high review simply because I thought that it was worth the time and effort I put in.
"Loved This Book!"
I recommend this book to anyone who wants a better understanding of Astrology. It's a wonderful book, and I'm grateful to have stumbled upon it.
It will open the door to your true purpose in life. Now that the door is opened, it's time to live life to your full potential.
Thanks for sharing this book with the world. I'll be forever thankful.
"I was really disappointed...."
This book should be called: I need to talk about my life.
I wanted to learn more about astrology being astrology the center of the story...
The story is her life and astrology is of second importance.
MORE DETAILS ABOUT ASTROLOGY PLEASE!
She is a nice person. I don't want to hurt your feelings. But the tittle make me buy the book.
I could not rediscover my life but yours!
Keep writing. Over all I see the good intention.
