Is this THE complete node book ???? 5 Aug 2003
By Luc De Jaeger - Published on
Format: Paperback
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...

Pretty good...but may not be complete 4 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I generally like Kevin Burks' astrology books (this book and his Understanding the Birth Chart book, especially). I wish these books were available years ago, they would have streamlined my library.
Other node books are pretty good too (Martin Schuman's Karmic Astrology: the Moon's Nodes and Reincarnation and Jan Spiller's Astrology for the Soul instantly comes to mind) but Burk's approach is more practical, more to the point and includes the latest research. The only criticism I have for this book is that I would have liked a 'complete' interpretation of planetary aspects to the nodes, for which all he offered was a brief theoretical description.

Good Book, Left Me Wanting...MORE! 7 Jun 2007
By Kathy Dannel Vitcak - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the writng style, the author has a clean, easy style of writing and conveying information. I especially appreciated the wya he broke the node descriptions into the houses they are in. That was a page of the "cookbook" you do not often see and added a new twist on the nodal interpretations.

That said, I wish there had been more of incorporating the nodes into the rest of the chart. Overall, I DO recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about working with the Nodes of the Moon in their astrological chart.

A Useful Textbook Style Reference Guide 19 Sep 2005
By Bonijean Isaacs - Published on
Format: Paperback
I like the fact that I can easily identify the aspect, look it up and incorporte it into the Chart interpretation. One can definately tell that Kevin Burk is a teacher and a good one at that. He explains that the interpretations are his and not the only valid ones. The goal of the book is to help budding astrologers to acquire building blocks to understand and develope their own understanding and interpretation of the Moon's Node. This is an often misunderstood aspect of Astrology but Kevin Burke rises of the the challenge to promote understanding. This is a added deminision that I can include in my professional chart. Thank you Mr. Burk Namaste!!!!!!1

For advanced astrologers 26 Sep 2007
By ZanReads - Published on
Format: Paperback
For advanced astrologers only.

I have Kevin Burk's Complete Astrology book and like it quite well. His deft ability to combine astrology, psychology and new age spirituality in plain spoken language is refreshing. I had hoped for more of the same. However, I returned this book because nowhere in the description did it mention that it would be useless in the hands of an amateur astrologer such as myself. Luckily Amazon makes returns painless.
