Practicing Western astrologer Agneta Borstein uses an East-West astrological approach to the lunar nodes, their role in synastry, and their importance in the process of the evolving soul. In addition, her familiarity with the Vedic system and its mythology brings a unique perspective to her interpretation of the nodes.
This is a revised and expanded edition of The Moon’s Nodes. A Churning Process of the Soul first published in 2004 expands on the nodes in synastry and their roles in our relationships. It presents the Hindu myths related to the nodes with an emphasis on the goddesses as consorts to the male deities and how their stories connect to the Lunar nodes.
Borstein presents the fundamental facts about the Moon’s Nodes and includes a discussion of the True and Mean Node and information on the nodal cycle in transit, natal signs and houses of the nodes and their meaning, especially in how to move from the wounded soul, represented by the South Node, to higher consciousness, represented by the North Node.
Includes a fascinating synastry study of Angelina, our modern day goddess, and her consort Brad Pitt with an interpretation of the ties that knot them together.
