BOOK NERD : Kickass Quotes From Astrology For The Soul by Jan Spiller

How can a person who says that she is not 100% convinced that reincarnation is the real deal love to shreds a book that is largely based on that theory? Mmmm... I dunno...

I am a mystery to myself and, since I claim to "live for the mystery", I suppose that is a good thing!
Some books are so eerily right on that even I, with my ever-questioning poke poke poking, am left in awe.

Astrology For The Soul is one of those books. It might be THE book in that regard. It has profoundly nailed the personalities of so many people I know, myself included, that I cannot deny it's magick.

I suppose, as a skeptic, you could say that any of the qualities ascribed to a specific sign are universally human and could be said of anyone.

I wouldn't begrudge you for thinking that, BUT- I would still recommend reading at least the chapter in this book devoted to your sign. That's because I am willing to bet that the information within will hit home for you with uncanny precision regardless.

I have seen people get very upset and defensive when they read what Jan Spiller has to say about their sign. She doesn't sugar-coat things or fluff up the ego in the name of selling more books, but she also won't leave you hanging.

The best thing about this book is that it gives you actionable steps you can take immediately to start bringing your personality into balance and to help free yourself of the more shadowy habits that have kept you locked into patterns that no longer serve your highest good.

It's a book about the kind of liberation & peace that follows personal empowerment & understanding, and it is one that I wholeheartedly recommend...

"Astrology, if explored from a psychological or scientific level, has nothing to do with belief. It is practical." -Jan Spiller

"When you can objectively see the patterns of your own behavior, you can make adjustments for more efficient results and better performance. " -Jan Spiller

"In astrology, the Moon rules our feelings, our moods, dependency, insecurity, the feeling of belonging- it rules our emotional bodies. The Moon rules our self-image, that is, the way we instinctively see ourselves regardless of what we are expressing in the world." -Jan Spiller

"Some qualities take more time than others to purify or let go of. Even if you are working to release a tendency that you worked on a week ago or a year ago, you will be working on it at a higher level and it won't be nearly as painful or difficult. In this way, growth is more like a spiral than a circle." -Jan Spiller

"The first step toward self-acceptance... is to acknowledge that there is a needy person inside and to take personal responsibility for filling those needs." -Jan Spiller

"When I let others be themselves, I am free." -Jan Spiller

"When astrology is approached from a level of true open-minded understanding, it leads directly to unconditional love." -Jan Spiller

"The issue of success or failure is far less important than making the commitment and actively pursuing the goal." -Jan Spiller

"Creating the realization of a dream held in the heart is never easy. In fact, that's why we have dreams- they are the 'carrots' that lure us past our limitations and cause us to grow beyond who we thought we were." -Jan Spiller

"As desires are met and outer goals are are no longer so compelling, the personality relaxes." -Jan Spiller

"You'll find that something did die, but it wasn't you- it was a fear that had attached itself to you." -Jan Spiller

"Once you access the underlying formula for uniting and balancing your inner self, it's like a particle of magic. It will work 100 percent of the time in every situation in your life, if you just 'remember to remember' the formula..." -Jan Spiller

"Material fulfillment is never the key to permanent, unbroken bliss. It is always temporary, and dissatisfaction always follows on the heels of simple material satisfaction. The ultimate resolution to the search for happiness is spiritual." -Jan Spiller

"Life wants you to be happy." -Jan Spiller

  1. I would really love to get REALLY into astrology, like making up my own charts and stuff, but it seems way too complicated--at least for me. I don't care much for the vague, generic ones like you see in the newspapers.

    The middle ground for me is having my chart personally done and is the best one I've seen. I'm not sure I mentioned it. Go to the section: "Short Report - Forecast" which should be scroll #2 at the top of the site. Fill out your name, birthdate, time, etc. and the results are uncanny! The "short report" forecast is not that short--quite long enough for it to fill my needs and it's free--and very detailed. The forecast stays there on site for you and it changes every couple months, adding more future dates and what's to happen. I read the "Personal Daily" Horoscope there too, but it doesn't seem as's OK though.

    I'll look for the book you mentioned, "Astrology for the Soul"...thanks! :)

    BTW, I listened to your latest podcast and I hope eventually you do have you professional dreams come true! I heard (and you know more about this than I do) that the Hollywood world is actually a "small community" where pretty much everyone knows everyone in the business, and you have a great chance of getting in if you have contacts with some of them.

    Love your blog and podcast! ((((hugs))))

    1. Aw- that's nice! I've lived in Hollywood for over 20 years & in some ways it is a small town. It's also pretty ruthless, but... I LOVE the movies! So- what are ya gonna do? :O)

      I think that, based on what you're saying here, you'd really enjoy Astrology For The Soul. It is not complicated at all in terms of learning birth chart coordinates. It focuses only on the North Node & it's flip side- the South Node, so it's very easy to grasp in that way. What's challenging about it is the spiritual work it asks of you, which I'm sure you'd be more than game for!

      HAPPY EQUiNOX, my friend, & NAMASTE -xo

    2. I see my local library has Astrology for the Soul; I put it on hold!

      Also, awesome you can have a terrific, model body. When I weighed 115 pounds in my 30's I still had big legs as I'm soo pear shaped--I was a skeleton above my waist! Hahaha...Oh well, maybe in my next life I'll have a killer bod.

      ~~Happy Equinox to you as well friend!

    3. Oh sweet! And really a "model body" is so subjective to the times & not at all a measure of beauty. Plus... Iggy Azalea!!! The pear is where it's at today! \m/

  2. Love that quote about there being a needy person inside. It is so our responsibility to feed our own souls and our own inner children who have needs that no one else can fulfill!

    1. It is so FUNNY that you mention that quote... that is the one I was on the fence about! I guess I thought people wouldn't get it or might take offense somehow... Glad to see I was wrong :O)
