I recommend this book for anyone who has ever said to themselves "How did I ever survive my childhood with us all being so different?"
As with other books by Sullivan, there is insightful treatment of many features of the birth chart that has more general applications other than the specialized subject matter in the book.
There are sections on family systems, the purpose of a family, family trees, repeating astrological patterns in the charts of families, roles such as scapegoats and blacksheep. The chapter on water houses is excellent (speaking as someone with these strong in my own chart). Transits to individual and family charts are also covered.
Sullivan finishes with several case histories that make for fascinating reading. These include a story of autism and another case where a woman carries the whole of her ancestral line as she attempts to reconnect with her roots and ancestors. I found some of this a bit heavy going at times as there is so much depth and detail on many levels, but felt rewarded by the end.
My first copy was from a bookstore in Glastonbury and my second in a local mystical shop. They had different covers but I wasn't at all fussed as this is an excellent book.
Erin is a master Astrologer and can tackle a subject that others would fall away from. In this book she does a super job of discussing with case examples, how your family (or others) could have a repeating astrological theme.
I discovered that my family (on my father's side) have Sagittarius running through it for generations, as my mother researched (and published) our family tree...
All these Catholic priests, bishops, nuns...you name it, Sagittarius was either the Sun sign, or Moon..leading all the way to my Dad who was Sun Sagittarius.
Great book and one I will not lend...even though I have two copies. Some books are just too valuable to part with and this has become part of my family!
