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...

★ "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

★ "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
