Having read Jan Spiller's "New Moon Astrology" in the past (and finding it very interesting), this was another incentive to look closely at the information presented in this book.
Self-fulfillment means different things to individuals, so I am interested to see what Jan and Karen have to offer - directions to self-fulfillment for all that read this book seems a bit of a large undertaking!
Part One of Spiritual Astrology looks at the planets, signs and houses and was written by Ms Spiller. Some of the information here can be found in many basic astrology books but the author interprets the various symbolism in a spiritual context. The meaning of Moon and Saturn signs in regards to past lives and karma are explored in this section too.
Prenatal eclipses in regards to life path and destiny are explored in Part Two. Karen McCoy researched the work in this chapter for four years and used more than four thousand birth charts during this time! Her research looked at the difference between the solar and lunar eclipse and what they meant to the individual. She also discovered another aspect of eclipses that may interest readers who have children. Jan Spiller contributed to this part of the book too.
After reading the material that relates to my own birth data, I came to the conclusion that this book has a lot to offer. The information covered much ground and gave me a lot to think about. The meaning prenatal solar and lunar eclipses in the twelve zodiac signs were explored in detail, as well as looking at the placement of eclipses in the various houses of the birth chart.
The mathematical tables in Part Three cover the positions of the Sun through to Pluto, and of course the solar and lunar eclipses. A full computer service for calculating detailed eclipse and birth chart information is also offered.
In summary Spiritual Astrology has a lot to offer for the reader who is interested in understanding their life (and past lives!) in a broad perspective. The information is easy to read and clear - I would highly recommend this title to the reader who has a beginner's level of astrological understanding and an interest in reincarnation and karma..
Karen McCoy is an old friend of mine and I've heard her speak on the subject many times over the years. The sections on 'Pre-Natal Eclipses' is priceless information and should be read many times over even by professional astrologers like myself. This is very valuable information.
