Between Past & Presence

Between Past & Presence

between-p-pBetween Past & Presence: A Spiritual View of the Moon & Sun, establishes the core of what has become the Awakening approach. It is my most basic book, addressing the relationship between the Moon and Sun; their relevance to spiritual growth. Through exploring signs, houses, aspects, rulerships, nodes, cycles and eclipses, a new paradigm of the luminaries is offered. In short, spiritual growth is furthered by integrating awareness and vitality (Sun) into the depths of the unconscious (Moon). By resolving the past (Moon), we are able to be fully in the present (Sun).

This book is suitable for beginners and intermediate students as well as those who would like a concise exploration of the spiritual focus which guides this approach. The ideas are clarified with many chart examples and the book is an easy read.
