5.0 out of 5 stars A book that truly lives up to its title, October 8, 2010
This review is from: Insights into Evolutionary Astrology: A Diverse Collection of Essays by Prominent Astrologers (Paperback)
Rose Marcus has done an excellent job of compiling some of the many diverse applications of EA. The subjects are well selected. I thoroughly enjoyed the unique style and perspective that each author brings to a broad range of topics.

The first three chapters were covered very clearly by Jeffrey Wolf Greene, Deva Green and Kim Marie, respectively. The review of basic EA principles, the four main ways that Pluto affects/instigates evolutionary growth, and the evolutionary states is a very helpful prelude toward integrating the in-depth applications in the book as a whole. These chapters also provide a concise and easily understandable basis for those new to EA.

Maurice Fernandez's explanation of sexuality indicators in Chapter 4 shows how these indicators find expression through the various archetypes in relationships. He adds a new level of understanding to the role one's sexual relationships plays in the evolution of the soul.

Kristin Fontana seeks to answer the question most of us who have a serious interest in astrology have asked at one time or another in our studies, "How can twins have charts that look essentially the same, yet often have such different characters and personalities and lead such different lives?" She offers great insight into this phenomenon in her detailed delineation of example charts - similar charts, but different past-life dynamics, evolutionary intentions, and stages of evolution.

In Chapter 6 on planets squaring the nodal axis Patrician Walsh applies this principle to several example charts, providing us with a broader understanding and perspective that can be applied to other individual charts. Walsh, a certified past life regression therapist, does an amazing job of bringing the charts to life by drawing parallels between the past life stories and the current life natal charts.

Marc Jones brings to the forefront the relevance of the often-overlooked planetary nodes to the evolution of the collective as well as the individual soul in Chapter 7. The interconnectedness of these nodes with individual planetary placements offers a very expanded view of how our evolution is directly connected with historical archetypal themes.

In the final chapter, Marcus explains the Capricorn archetype and its ramifications for our world. She sheds much light on the collective challenges and choices of our times. It is a real eye-opener and a must-read for anyone seeking to expand their worldview.

This book is a worthwhile addition to any astrological library.
