In Healing the Soul, psychosynthesis therapist and counseling astrologer Mark Jones from Bristol, UK delivers his definitive introduction to his version of evolutionary astrology. Orignally schooled in the Jeffrey Wolf Green tradition, Mark Jones has taken the technique and developed it further, after 10 years of intensive client work in a therapeutic setting. In this book, Jones offers detailed case studies that illustrate the concepts he shares in the first part of the book.
With a focus on using astrology for healing, Jones outlines the meaning of the Pluto placements in the birthchart. He explains previously perplexing signatures like "Skipped Steps" in an easy-to-understand format, with chart examples and graphics. He also devotes and entire chapter to Uranus, featuring Mark's unique approach to Uranus in the birth chart.
This book takes the reader on a journey into the karmic imprint of the birth chart, providing a deeper understanding of the unconscious and compulsive motivations behind the personality. The reader will gain a glimpse into the hidden realm of past-life experience as shared through the intense but fascinating case-studies presented.
Healing the Soul lays out the clear delineation of a method that anyone can use to learn more about the unconscious dynamics that drive us. This book is a must for any student of Evolutionary Astrology. The beginner will find this a useful reference text and the expert will enjoy the detailed chart explanations. For the professional astrologer, this book provides the tools necessary for incorporating Jones' method into any current framework.
Grounded in Jones' spiritual approach to life, Healing the Soul teaches us how to identify and transform powerful internal conflicts and feelings while acknowledging our regenerative capacity for spiritual healing and soul evolution.
