I first bumped into this book many years ago, while browsing shelves at B&N. I was a bit confused then, since I always knew I was a Taurus and knew the attributes of this sign. According to this book I'm a Pisces. I would've been happy and relieved hadn't it been for the fact that it all sounded too good to be true.
Everything that I always admired in other people of the Piscean type I thought was unattainable to me. Now I realize that it happened because I was only looking at the negative sides of my personality and wasn't developing the positive once, since I lacked the understanding of my destiny. So i went on living as I did before, thinking of myself simply as someone born under the sign of Taurus, thinking that I need to be practical and down to earth, meanwhile finding it very difficult dealing with practicalities of life... When this book once again landed into my hands a few months ago, I looked at it with fresh eyes and finally understood what the north node astrology is all about. It helped me let go of the guilt and allowed me to accept myself like never before in my life. It helped me concentrate on my art more fully and with abandon, since after studying this book, I realized that it is my soul's mission to express what tries to get expressed through my paintings. Before I though of myself as someone who is self-indulgent and lazy and had a tremendous amount of guilt, which couldn't stop me from painting all together, but stopped me from devoting myself to it wholeheartedly and carrying over the benefits of it into everyday life, ripping financial benefits. I'm much more relaxed now about not fixating on mundane things in life and in general more open and in tune with my higher self. I don't feel bad anymore about not holding a regular job and my husband and kids are much better off because of that too. It also helped my friends and family members to understand themselves better, to get in touch with their inner selves, and realize where their challenges in life are coming from and how to deal with them. A few of them immediately after me ordered this and other books by Jan Spiller. I can't recommend Astrology for the Soul enough. It's one of those rear books that are changing people's lives.
