The Complete Node Book: Understanding Your Life's Purpose
The Complete Node Book: Understanding Your Life's Purpose
by Kevin Burk
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Is this THE complete node book ????, Aug. 5 2003
The Nodes are a subject in astrology that is quite difficult to understand. How to delineate these imaginary points and what do they mean ? I hoped to find an answer in this book by Kevin Burk. And partially I got an answer too. In his book, Kevin Burk analyzes the position of the nodes in the signs and houses, giving 144 placements. No other book gives these combinations, so this book is an interesting read. However the interpretations I found mediocre, there are books in other languages that give a much more insightful perspective. And if this should be the ultimate compendium or reference manual about the nodes, I would at least expect a chapter about the nodes in synastrie, a chapter about the nodes in progressions, the difference between the mean and the true node, other planetary nodes, transiting nodes to the natal chart etc... But no, these subjects are totally missing ! Only the transits to the nodes are mentioned in a very short chapter. So no, this is NOT THE guidebook about the nodes but mere a kind of a cookbook about the 144 placements of the nodes. Makes me think that the nodes are indeed quite difficult to grasp...

5.0 out of 5 stars very useful even for the non vedic astrologers, June 13 2003
I've always been interested in the nakshatras, used in vedic astrology (sidereal zodiac). They are simple to calculate (planetary degree in the tropical zodiac minus 23°), can be used by non vedic astrologers too and they give some information you cannot find somewhere else. The author explains all moon mansions in detail in separate chapters. Every chapter ends with a short overview and gives some interpretations when the ascendant, the sun or moon is found in the mentioned nakshatra. He even gives some career interests and health issues related to the nakshatras. But what I find most interesting is the chapter about relationship compatibility in which Dennis Harness explains the kuta point system and some other important factors that should be analyzed for relationship compatibility. This was new stuff to me and I'm very glad the author incorporated this in his book. Well-well-very well-done !

3.0 out of 5 stars language of astrology = language of genetics ?, June 8 2003
A.T. Mann is raising some very important questions and concepts in this book. His idea of reincarnation and a potential higher function of the DNA molecule as a repository of all history within us makes sense (though I remain neutral re reincarnation). His Life Time Astrology is worth a closer look, but in (my) practise I could not always relate some specific events to his time scale. In using a computer program to print his time scale incl. the accompanying constellations and comparing them to some natal charts I'm not convinced that his time scale is correct. I'm not saying that his time scale is incorrect either, but I could not find an overwhelming evidence for a link between a certain life event and the time scale. Possibly not all birth-times I used were correct but it left me hungry. His theory - how valid it may seem - needs further practical research.

3.0 out of 5 stars day-by-day guidebook, June 8 2003
So this is just another of these BIG books that tell us day-by-day what the characteristics of the birthdays are. Blending numerology, astrology and the kabbala to show the areas of fortune and happiness. The interpretations seem to be OK, but cannot equal the ones you will find in the books by Goldschneider & Elffers. The books by Goldschneider & Elffers are the most accurate and to-the-point ones delving deeply into the meaning of ALL birthdays, day by day.

This is basic literature for EVERY astrologer. Even experienced astrologers will find this book most valuable. If you just start to learn astrology, start with this book and STUDY it.

Ruling Planets
Ruling Planets
by Christopher Renstrom
Edition: Hardcover
25 used & new from CDN$ 10.74

5.0 out of 5 stars weighty volume of astrological knowledge, June 8 2003
This review is from: Ruling Planets (Hardcover)
In this +600 pages volume the author describes the rulers of all sunsigns (called the ruling planets). In other words, this book is about rulerships. In different parts the author explains the different meanings of all sunsign rulers in combination with the sign they are placed in. In another part he goes even further, blending your own ruling planet with the ruling planet of a friend, a lover, your boss, etc... These planetary combinations in relationships are unique. This colourful and neat book is as well suited for beginners as for more experienced astrologers.

Magic Thread P
Magic Thread P
by Idemon
Edition: Paperback
11 used & new from CDN$ 4.02

5.0 out of 5 stars insightful, June 8 2003
This review is from: Magic Thread P (Paperback)
I can only agree with the other reviewers. In this book Richard Idemon explains some very intresting points on horoscope delineations/interpretation. Though this book is a transcript of his seminars, it's very readable and structured. You will learn how to read an astrological chart as a logical but complicated and elusive structure: the horosocpe as a magic thread. You will learn about dominant and inferior functions, the meaning of singletons, final dispositors, the ascendant as mask and incest in the family etc... Due to the untimely death of the author in 1987 we will miss quite a lot of other insights he could have given us. If you can get this book, get it because in it you will find some insightful opinions that will broaden your astrological view.

5.0 out of 5 stars this comes from a scientist, Jan. 3 2003
At least you may laugh about viruses, parasites etc.. in your own body. Sounds like a thriller but seems to be total reality. From my own experience I must admit that Hulda Clark seems to be on target, though I find her total cleansing 'therapy' unrealistic and hard to follow day in day out. But this has nothing to do with the reliability of her findings. Now I understand why a friend of mine, after some weeks she started to live together under one roof with her friend who is extremely allergic, started sniffing too... It's very likely that allergies are just viruses ! If you have seen someone with cancer spitting up five 2-inch big parasites from the stomach some hours after taking a natural antiparasite formula - as I have seen - one's worldview changes completely and definitively. And in favour of Hulda Clark's findings ! Though I am confident that only someone who has SEEN such (really horrible) things with his own eyes wil follow the seemingly uncommon ideas of Hulda Clark, one should remember that Hulda Clark is a scientist, and - as it seems - a very meticulous one too, who is really helping (= HEALING) chronically ill people.

Heaven Knows What: How To Cast Your Horoscope in 15 Minutes!
by Grant Lewi
Edition: Paperback
15 used & new from CDN$ 11.82

5.0 out of 5 stars something more than just a cookbook, Jan. 3 2003
You will find a lot of delineations in this book: all aspects and sun-moon combinations are reviewed. But Lewi Grant goes further. He modifies his delineations according to other aspects that can be found in the natal chart. A venus-jupiter conjunction in your radix will differ if your chart has a venus-mars trine as well or a venus-mars conjunction. This is just not a textbook about two planets in aspect, but about different planets in aspect. That's the way delineations should be handled: all aspects are to be seen and interpreted as a chain. Only Lewi Grant seems to understand this....
