What Is Your True Purpose in Life?

There are many questions each of us asks: Why am I here? What is my mission in life? Am I doing what I'm supposed to be doing? Is there something more I should be doing? If only those questions had easy answers, our lives would run more simply and easily. But now, there is an answer, and you can find it in Celeste Teal's Lunar Nodes.

If you have ever looked at an astrology chart, you've probably seen the two lunar nodes listed. But what are they? They're not planets or signs or houses. The truth is, lunar nodes are invisible! So what are they?

From our position on earth, the sun seems to follow an enormous circle through the sky. This is called the ecliptic. The planets follow near the ecliptic because they are in orbit around the sun. But the moon orbits the earth, not the sun. As a result, the path of the moon seems to form a wavy line that goes above and below the ecliptic. The point where the moon crosses the ecliptic going up is called the North Node, and the point where the moon crosses the ecliptic going down is the South Node. The path of the moon and the ecliptic of the sun form an eternal dance. Their points of juncture, the nodes, are the unseen influences, representing the higher powers or cosmic forces at work. They represent karmic controls and are among the most powerful influences in the horoscope. They can be used by you to discover your purpose in life even if you know nothing about astrology!

The Meanings of the Nodes

Celeste Teal has been writing on astrology for over twenty years. Her writing has appeared in numerous magazines and journals, and she is the author of books like Eclipses and Identifying Planetary Triggers. Here she presents the most in-depth study of the nodes ever presented in the West. As she describes it: "The North Node is like a cup that is running over. Gifts from the higher powers are coming to us and good karma is rewarded. The South Node is an empty cup we are expected to fill..."

Combine this information with a basic understanding of the astrological meanings of planets, houses, aspects, etc., and you can literally discover the soul's purpose in life without having to know anything else about astrology!

Where can you get this information? Simply look at a birth chart and determine where the nodes are. Then look in this book to discover the meanings of:

• The nodes by house position
• The nodes by sign position
• The nodes and ruling planets
• Nodal aspects to the inner and outer planets
• Extra tips and tricks that will make your interpretations clearer

Lunar Nodes also reveals the meanings of the transiting nodes, transiting planets in aspect to the nodes, nodes in solar return charts, nodes in synastry (comparing multiple charts), and more.

With the information here you'll learn which personality traits to leave behind, where spiritual growth is needed, and where opportunity for rewards may be found. If you stray too far from using these talents, the nodes will mentally tug at you to bring you back to your soul's true path and your life's real goals. The techniques here are simple and direct; anyone can use them. Of course, if you're already an astrologer it will add all sorts of benefits to self-understanding and in chart interpretations for others.

Easy to Follow—Easy to Use

Lunar Nodes is filled with examples, charts, and clear information n the meanings of the nodes anywhere in a chart. Nodes can also be used for predicting events of the upcoming year or any year of your choosing. This is an invaluable new tool for astrologers who have "short-changed" the nodes in the past simply because they didn't know that much about them. Now, you can set your readings apart and have
them really stand out. Don't miss accessing information you never knew was so easily available.
