Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Imagine a new system of finding people with whom you could be compatible, or who at least understand the nature of your interpersonal dynamic. Based on information channeled from her spirit guide Grey Eagle, spiritual medium Altea (The Eagle and the Rose) has written such a system based on "Soul Signs" or energy groups: Fire, Earth, Air, Water and Sulphur. Although the first four sound similar to the cardinal associations of astrology, Altea firmly asserts that astrological and soul sign typing are different. For example, her mother is an Aquarian, but fire is her soul type. Fire souls are driven by passion; earth by a need to plan and strategize; air by a passive and calming energy flow; and water by a need to evaluate and compromise. The fifth group, sulphur, is a total departure from astrological ideas, as sulphur souls are driven by evil. Within each of the five energy groups there are subsets based on type of energy flow (introvert, central and extrovert), which is not the same as a personality type whom we might consider as introverted or extroverted. These subsets have evocative labels such as Retrospective, Visionary, Peacemaker, Newborn, Bright Star, Warrior Soul, etc. All members of the sulphur sign are considered Dark Souls. Since soul signs, unlike astrological signs, lack an obvious date marker, Altea gives numerous explanations and variations to help readers determine their soul sign and subset throughout. The book's chief merit is in provoking new ways of contemplating the human psyche.

People are always looking for new ways to categorize themselves and others, whether it be by Jungian archetypes or astrology. The author of Soul Signs has created her own via the guidance of her spirit Grey Eagle and her own 20-odd years of observation of the human psyche. Although you may not take her word as gospel, she has developed an interesting system of "typing" people. There are 13 spiritual "types" in her system.
I myself am having a difficult time deciding which of the 13 "soul types" I am, so the book is perhaps not as helpful to me as it could have been. Also controversial is the idea that there is a very small minority of souls who are truly evil, not just disturbed. The author opines that there are people who born "dark souls" who are here just to revel in the hurt they cause others and for which there is no redemption.
If you can accurately choose your own type from the descriptions, then you'll be able to choose your most compatible soul mates from several charts included with the book. Good luck.

Format: Paperback
This book is very interesting, I was always curious in what I read on the back of the book, wondering how accurate the book actually could be. And I must say, even though at first I didn't know what I could be since she leaves the discovery to your own knowledge, I found this book to be endlessly fascinating. I did though skim through most of her words about other things, such as her own sign and how it affected her and the others around her, because that was not why I bought the book I just wanted to know who I was.

Yet if you skim through most of her talking and get to the main point of the book of finding out about all the personalities of the soul signs, it gets to be a great reading. It took me awhile to figure myself out, but if you just read the signs more carefully, and just think about yourself a little more, you'll realize one of the signs just hitting you.

I don't know if it was true for everyone else, but I found my zodical element, which is water, also being in my soul sign. I am a Seeker soul- wise, but I am also in the zodiac a Cancer. I wonder if others found themselves finding their soul sign in the same element as their zodiac sign like I did. I found that interesting. Yet I know I am the Seeker, and even the first time I read through the book I knew I found myself being linked to water still just like in my zodiac sign.

I think this is a cool form of thought, to think our soul has an actual sign alone is interesting. I say I believe it, since the Seeker soul sounds so much like myself. I would say this is a good addition to the library of astrology lovers such as I. If you love astrology, I recommend this as well.

Format: Paperback
Well, what can I say?!?!?! After reading this book 1 time, you will never be able to doubt or deny any of its spiritual concepts. Rosemary does a wonderful job of explaining the question we've all asked since birth "Where do I come from?" Even if you don't understand the events that led to your earthly existence; you're here!!! And boy does Rosemary make it easy to understand why it is we do the things we do. With this book, I've been able to identify all of my close friends and relatives' soul sources. After understanding and grasping the concept that each of us are placed in this physical realm with our own personlaity traits and emotions from individual energy sources, my relationships with others have done 360 degree turn-arounds! Try it for yourself. The minute your eyes stroll across the simply -written pages explaining personal, underlying make-up; Rosemary's words will capture all of your attention leaving you yearning for more information on (who else)!

Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be REALLY interesting - and quite insightful.

Basically, Rosemary helps the reader determine their own "soul sign", as well as the "soul signs" of others, through a categorization based on the elements (i.e. fire, water, air, etc...).

This info. can then be used to help the reader understand why they get along so well with some people and not others, and the best "type" of person for you - in terms of friendships and relationships.

After getting this book, I went ahead and figured out the "soul signs" of those close to me - and found the info. to be on target. The insights I gained helped me to understand why I am able to get along so well with some of these people, and yet feel like pulling my hair out with others.

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in astrology-related ideas.

Format: Paperback
At your moment of birth, your body was imprinted with astrological information. Perhaps the Sun was in Scorpio, the Moon in Pisces, Mercury in Sagittarius, Mars in Capricorn, Leo Rising. All of these positions influence who you are in this life.

But your body dies and is left behind when your immortal soul proceeds to its next destination. The fact that you are a Scorpio in this life doesn't mean that your eternal soul is Scorpio.

We are mixtures. You may be a male Scorpio in this life, with a female soul of a different sign. Your soul is the true, eternal you.

Your date of birth doesn't reveal what your soul's sign is. By understanding yourself you can recognize your soul sign in this book.

Where did the author get her information? She is a medium. Her information came from a spirit who communicates with her.

I realize that's a lot to swallow. I once had a session with a medium, and my impression was that the person was not what he claimed to be. I believe he was a performer, not a medium.

As for Rosemary Altea, I'm impressed with this book and I hope she is what she claims to be.

There are similarities between her soul signs and the astrological signs. The four elements are the same - fire, earth, air and water. Instead of the three "types" (cardinal, fixed, mutable) this book has three divisions called Introvert (subjective), Central (balanced), and Extravert (objective).

If the three divisions can be correlated to each other, then it appears to me that the subjective soul signs would be the cardinal astrology signs, because the quality of being subjective is most similar to the meaning of the cardinal signs.
